Good Food, Service OK!

I was with my family (5) of us to celebrate my Sister's Birthday. We thought the food was good but the service was OK. Also, 3 of us ordered the chicken parmegiana over pasta. First, our bill had an addtional $26.00 that should not have been there. Our waitress corrected the bill and then added... read more

Had a good size menu with a little of everything. Excellent arugula salad with grapefruit. Braised short ribs over risotto was excellent. Service was good not great. Atmosphere ok. Not too crowded. Byob. Will go back again.

My husband and I ate here recently for dinner. To be honest we had a Restaurant.com gift certificate which is why we went here as it is a bit out of the way from where we live. My husband got the wedge salad (very good) and chicken parm - which he also said was very good. I got the asian... More

Not cheap,but fair for an upscale menu, always check Out Groupon for any restaurant, which gave us a nice discount. They do have signs they are no longer taking Restaurant.com. We were here previously, still great. We had the Asparagus Tempura, very tasty and a Argula Salad, with pears and grapefruit, different and tasty. For our meals, specials of Duck... More

This restaurant is hidden in a "nothing" strip mall, and you would never stop in driven by curb appeal! Once inside, it gets a little nicer, but DO make reservations. Reservations seem to confuse them sometimes, and recently we were even asked politely to leave as a party was waiting for our table. They want you to eat and leave,... More

I went for a girls night and had the Calamari as my main. It was AWFUL! Very greasy and the batter had a sweetness to it that was off-putting. Others at the table were okay with their dinners but no one was raving about the place.

The Pistachio Grille is a nice local BYOB with food on par with some of the fancier restaurants in Center City, Philadelphia. Service is attentive and specials are very good. Prices are a bit on the high side, but we've never had a problem with the quality of the food. Also helps to have a Groupon!

My husband and I went there for dinner since I had a certificate from Restaurant.com. I showed the hostess the certificate and she said they accepted it. When the waitress came to the table, after explaining in painstaking detail all of their specials, I asked her if the certificate was still accepted. She also said yes. Long story short, we... More

We recently bought a Groupon and decided to give The Pistachio Grill a try again after having not eaten there in a couple years. We found the food to be good but not outstanding and extremely over-priced for what they charge. My husband ordered the swordfish special with crabmeat and the piece of fish was 3-4oz at most with almost... More

The Pistachio Grill is tucked away in the corner of the strip shopping center. Once you get there you'll be surprised at the interior. The service is always good and the food is excellent. The asparagus tempura is a great appetizer to share. The prices are equivalent to a good city restaurant but it is a BYOB. There is a... More
