Consistently excellent food

We have been coming to this local gem for years and are always delighted by the food. It is consistently delicious food. The ambience is better than it was (recently remodeled) and the service is inconsistent. The last time we were there it was a Saturday night and it was not filled. We had to... read more

Good food and cute location. They were able to accommodate gluten free needs. The short ribs were delicious!

AAAHHHH YES, The Florida group has come north & considering that they ONLY know "EARLY BIRD SPECIALS" it was about time to introduce them to a newly renovated restaurant that tingles the appetite. Well of course its a "BYOB" Its NOT tremendously large but homey enough to be comfortable..The wait-staff was always available and knowledgeable to replace utensils when needed.... More

Most terrible dining experience ever!! I went on Sunday with my husband and 4 year old daughter. After waiting close to 30 minutes with no one coming to our table, I had to beg someone to take my order. The first lady stated she had no paper or pen. The waiter finally came over very annoyed. I asked him to... More

My title sums up our experience. I read a few other review that mentioned the BAD service but we were still willing to give Pistachio's a shot. It also helped that we had a Groupon. Without the Groupon price my rating would have been lower. Our meal, once received - an hour after we ordered, was tasty and very well... More

We've dined here as part of groups, family dinner out as well as on date night. Each and every time everyone enjoyed what they ate. From the bread, butter and peppers delivered to each table to the creative appetizers (a pretty fantastic porkbelcy app last time). Their short ribs are my favorite, anywhere. Desserts are always on the mark as... More

A nice menu selection in a small venue. Only downside is that it can get very crowded at times. Try a mid-week day for the best dining experience.

The meals we ordered were good and well prepared, as was the one salad ordered. It has a very comfortable dining area. The Pistachio Grille should include a small salad with the meal price.

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 an additional $3.00 for the... 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.
