All aspects of our dining experience was phenominal. Service was spot on. Music in the background. Sashimi tuna app and my wife's swordfish was done very well. The highlight of the meal was my veal chop. It was perfect. Succulent, tender and flavorful.

I have tucked into some great steaks in some great restaurants all over America (my all time favorite is in Florence, Italy however, check out another one of my reviews), but Bistango ranks among the best. Plus there's music for dancing. At first glance the musicians might seem "past it", but these guys can belt it out, and all of... More

Went to Bistango for a work lunch. The food was yummy and the service was fantastic. I has a bit of a problem finding the place, mostly because I missed the sign on the side of the building. Overall, I highly recommend Bistango.

We were there with a large party later in the evening and the staff was incredbible. From the moment we walked in to the moment we left we were made to feel welcome and comfortable. The menu offered a variety of choices and everyone at my end of the table very much enjoyed their food. The location is a bit... More

Bistango was one of our favorite restaurants before we moved to the Midwest. We have great memories of special dinners. We have not been to Bistango for over 8 years and as often happens…sometimes memories are better than reality. The setting is very nice. We enjoy the art work and the elevated seating area is our favorite. I reserved a... More

The ambiance is perfect for a work lunch. It is slightly pricey, but the food is good. If you have to entertain a client this is a safe bet.

Great food and wine list. Mary's Chicken is a great dish I highly recommend. Daily specials are always interesting.
