Steaks we had were hard to chew. The middle part of meat had a tendon that made it difficult to chew the meat apart even though they were medium rare. Yes they done the medium rare well. They might had gotten our sauces wrong too but we did checked with them and they say yeah its correct. The food was ok not wow. The worst part is ?: They charged us 2 bottles of wine when we had only one. mind you we had less than an hour to finish the dinner as we did not make a reservation and the next reservation is up next hour so we were supposed to finish by 8pm( arrived around 7pm) Yes I should have checked the bills carefully but well its over and a realized this a few days later. Also the lady that gave us the wine menu asked "So do you want to order the wine or not?" Well, I let you decide on this. The place may look nice with its wooden tables and cozy feel but I had this feeling of wanting to get out of there quickly which I should have. So verdict is : not worth the price you are paying for. Go to a nice hotel or restaurant for this kind of price. And do check your bills before signing!

We ate here on our first night in hong kong. A little hard to find and strange going into a lobby area to take a lift up to the restaurant but it works.

We were a little tired after our 12 hr flight but were greeted nicely. It is a steak house but they didn't seem to be too prepared to make something that wasn't steak - not having a few of the non steak options available to order. Once the food came it was absolutely delicious but not exactly what we wanted. the focaccia bread on the house was also great.

The service was ok but we felt a little neglected in the corner and had to wait a small amount of time to replace a knife that was dropped on the floor.

Overall great tasting food but a few little tweaks and this could make it great

The only reason I added for the money is because the Intercontinental Hotel Steakhouse is on par but more expensive.
Bistecca is too cool. Located in Lan Kwai Fong, the funnest place to be, on a second floor hideaway, the service and ambience is superlative.
The wine list is extensive but bring a fat wallet.
The meat was surprisingly good and the cooking of it and all the sides, salads, desserts were wunderbar....
My new favorite restaurant in a town with lots of great ones.

Had dinner here with our friends on our last night in Hong Kong. The place is located in the 2nd floor of a building in Lan Kwai Fong overlooking the corner where Hard Rock Cafe is. Ambiance is very homey, with dark wood everywhere, candle-lit tables complete the log cabin feel of the place. The steak is one of the best I've had in Hong Kong. We ordered 3 16-oz USDA Black Angus ribeye steaks and boy, were they tender and quite tasty! The steaks were huge and cooked just right, served on wooden cutting boards. We also had for starters, House Smoked Bacon with Red Pepper Ketchup(must try!), the cold cuts selection(Prosciutto, etc.) and a salad. Everything was good and the serving sizes were more than enough. Will definitely come back!

This place is a little hard to find and, frankly, if you’re not a local you might struggle to find it. It’s hidden away inside what looks like an office building, but if you can find it it offers a nice atmosphere and a really excellent choice of steaks. We were taken here by an expat local and it was really great. I wouldn’t say it’s the best steak I’ve eaten – that accolade goes to Cut @ The Palazzo in Las Vegas – but it’s very good; certainly on a par with, if not better than Hawksmoor in London.
