I visit Torch Bistro very often to meet friends for a drink. Occasionally we get an appetizer with wine. Bartender/owner Heidi remembers her customers and has a great personality. It is always a great environment and I recommend it just based on that. Tonight, however, I had an incredible meal. I had venison carpaccio, a special that I hope will... More

Every time I drove past the Torch Bistro sign in front of their restaurant lately I have been intrigued by their latest entrée addition, Bison. Last night my wife and I visited this lovely restaurant near downtown Punta Gorda. We were greeted by the always effusive hostess and owner, Heidi. Looking over the menu I decided on the Bison since... More

Order any seafood item on the menu and prepared to be wowed! The food is that good! Add in drink specials, special meal pricing promotions and super friendly owners and this is why I dine here at least once a week. Give Torch Bistro a try, you will not be disappointed. J2

I received an email offering a "Two for $20" special. My wife and I went, and did take part in the special. The food was EXCELLENT, the prime rib was one of the best I've ever had. They also had $4.00 drink specials, and they were good also. HOWEVER, when we paid with a VISA card, they tacked on a... More

Thank you for dining with us. First let me explain we are not a corporate restaurant that gets subsidized. There are table tents that are on every table that offers a 5% discount if you pay your bill with cash or a fee of .99 if you use a credit card. We do not charge a percentage of the bill... More

The Torch ran a very successful promotion, and when we arrived for our reservation, seeing the near capacity crowd, we almost left, thinking the service would suffer from the unexpected turnout. To our pleasant surprise, we were seated and our drink order was taken immediately, with the dinner order taken shortly thereafter, Our server, Julie, who had to be overloaded,... More
