This place is much bigger in the inside than it looks, and nice decor. If you want steak or red meat there are many choices, however, you cannot get just fried or grilled chicken for instance. One person got the chicken parmesan which was OK. I ordered the chicken picatta but what I got was more like a chicken marsala... More

This is our go-to spot for a nice night out. Great menu, great wine list, great service, great ambience. If you come on a Sat night, ask for Chris as your server. You'll be glad you did.

I have been to Sterlings Bistro a handful of times and we always have a nice experience. They have a lot of different items on the menu because it is not a chain restaurant. In an area with a lot of chain restaurants, it is a pleasant change. The Chilean Sea Bass is, by far, on of the best things... More

Menu was reasonable and had a nice variation. Food was not cooked very appealingly and taste was mediocre. The place was not busy and service was fair to poor.

Three of us walked in on a sunny Sunday afternoon. The hostess had just walked away to seat people in the dinning area, we decided to sit in the bar area, high tops table. Not too many people in there and we sat and we sat, no one acknowledged us at all. Finally, my friend went got the bartenders attention... More

Just average execution, of those creative selections. The Meatball lollipops were warm as best, as were the Dragonfire shrimp. Both tasted like the were pre- made.The cocktails very good though. The wine list had some nice wines on it, at reasonable prices.

We had a party of 14 that went to Sterling Bistro for a birthday party. The wait staff were extremely over the top wonderful! Pleasant, engaging, enjoyable and organized. Not sure if they are this way all the time, but I can’t wait to go back for another delightful experience. The appetizers are quite amazing: Oysters Rockefeller, Sweet Onion Bleu... More
