Reliable and consistent food and service

Bistango is my go-to restaurant when I'm in the Irvine area. My favorite dish is the Niçoise salad, which has all of the perfect ingredients with a light dressing. Highly recommend.

I made reservations for lunch through Open Table,probably not necessary but we got there... More

Used to be one of the best but has slipped. Food was OK at best and the service was so unfriendly. Our server seemed not to care and took along time to get our drinks and food. I would not recommend.

We had dinner here at the suggestion of a couple from the area who raved of this place. We were not disappointed. Everything from the wine, to the salads, entrees & dessert was fabulous. Live music was playing which allowed for a nice dance after dinner. The service was great and I would definitely recommend this place.

Bistango is just a consistently good place for lunch and dinner. especially good for business and to be sure you will see business being conducted at almost every table. Recently I have paid more attention to the bar there which is terrific for a few "bar snack" and some good wine. The energy there is very good but both at... More

Bistango is one of my favorite places to take someone special for lunch or dinner. The food is always great, the artwork is usually interesting, the staff is very professional, and I love the vibe of the office atrium setting. Most recently, I took a friend/coworker to lunch here. We make it a point to have a nice meal every... More

This is where I and my husband had our first date, so it has a special meaning somehew. I was impressed back then due to the atmosphere,... More

Most enjoyable restaurant in the John Wayne Airport Area. Crazy good and fun menu. Diverse and really, really tasty. Love the evening jazz. Good outdoor area ideal for watching evening football.

This resturant has an extensive menu offering seafood, pasta, and american dishes. Nicely decorated interior and attentative wait staff. Food is delicious and extensive wine list. There is live Jazz music in the bar area that can be heard in the resturant so it is a nice evening out!
