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

We like this place. Not much from the outside as it is in a strip mall. Nice menu with varied specials. BYOB. Good service. Prices are reasonable. Romantic setting because of lay-out of tables and lighting. I like the tempura asparagus starter though a lot to eat.

My wife and I and another couple visited the Pistachio Grill last week. The food was very tasty, the ambiance rather ordinary. The ceasar salad was large and fresh. It could easily be shared by a couple. I ordered the Veal Scallopini. Again, it was prepared using fresh ingredients and the peppers and mushrooms made an enjoyable entree. Two of... More

Went with the family after I bought a Groupon. I'm pretty sure our table hadn't been cleared properly... A dirty dish and a dirty glass among the clean stuff. Waiter was friendly and accurate with orders. Made a few suggestions too. Food was good but pretty expensive for a family meal. Desserts were popular!

Service was erratic: gruff at first, relatively refined when the "specials" were being explained, and then hard-edged during serving the food and clearing the table. Food only poor-fair, esp. a pasta and shrimp salad and a saute'd scallop dish.Chicken parm. OK.

Had a very nice time with friends of ours at Pistachio Grill. Staff is super friendly. While the place is small you have room to be with your party and not your neighbors. The menu has a selection of standard items and the a larger selection of specials. Need to ask about prices on the specials as they are not... More

In this review of The Pistachio Grille I want to say first and without hesitation, that the food was very good. The food was fresh and tasty, and the sauces suitable for any big European city. It seems to me that the chef puts a lot of his attention and energy into creating his works of edible art and if... More

Based on most of the reviews I had read about Pistachio Grill, I purchased a Living Social coupon. We were not disappointed. The strip-mall restaurant is quaint with a cozy atmosphere; warm décor making you feel as if you're in an Italian bistro in Italy. Empty wine bottles, pistachio shelled-filled vases, and candles on the shelves create a nice ambience.... More

We had a Groupon for the Pistachio Grill and looked forward to a return visit, because we had enjoyed previous meals there on more than one occasion. And yes, the food this time was very good. I had the stuffed pork chop and my wife and her sister had the rigatoni with shrimp, crab, and broccoli. All were delicious. But... More

On our way to Gettysburg this morning we needed a restaurant for breakfast close to the parkway. We chose The Pistachio Grill and were very pleased. My husband and I ordered The Maryland Omlette, made with fresh spinach and tomatoes and lump crab meat. It was delicious! Other people in our party of 4 ordered Eggs Benedict and Eggwhite Omlette...
