This restaurant never ceases to amaze me. It is always top drawer. Forget the steak restaurants, Bistango has the best steaks I have ever had and I am a real meat eater! My favorite place.

This was my 1st visit, Bistango was recommended and I definitely was not disappointed. I selected one of their "Prix-fixe 3 course menus" Tamarind-Chile Glazed Wild King Salmon. The White Chocolate Cheese Cake was absolutely delicious. I read many reviews before leaving the house and a large number of reviewers commented on the service.....the service is A+! Our server Mark was pleasant, knowledgeable of the menu, and very attentive, the entire staff is very nice and accommodating. My friend and I enjoyed the ambiance, there was a singer/saxophonist who added a touch of jazz to the atomosphere. My friend and I will certainly place Bistango on our list for return visits.

I was looking forward to my meal here but was quite disappointed - my rack of lamb, ordered medium, arrived "blue" Actually raw. Although they took it back and re-cooked it, it still means that both the kitchen and serving staff ignored the undercooking and served it anyway

The reason to go is the decor -- the atrium is amazing and the overall atmosphere is lovely. Wait staff needs to be a bit more, approachable -- they tend to have a bit of an arrogant air. Great time had on a two recent occasions this year.

Steak very undercooked. Sent my wife's dinner back and came back the same way. One more restaurant that needs to be recycled.
