“Great martini bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014 via mobile

Great place to meet friends for drinks. The bar tenders are top notch and a great atmosphere. We told him to surprise us and the jalapeño martini was to die for.

“Horribly rude server and slow”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

I had been drinking for 7+ hours by the time my friends and I were here for a bachelorette party. The server didn't appreciate my mistake in leaving her too small of a tip (actual mistake from drinking too much/trying to add) and approached me not only here at Bistango, but later on in the evening at Gibliano Brothers.I will never return because of her horrible attitude!

“Cozy spot to catch a quick drink”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

This little bar is very cool. The decor is hip and a little deco to me. It is a very small place which makes it so cozy. It has a really good feeling. The drinks are good and so are the appetizers. Seem a little pricey, but they are equivalent to The Davenport hotel bar prices. My favorite is the Huckleberry martini…the best in town!!!! Not a place for a big group…it is difficult to seat a group larger than 4 people. Get there early Friday and Saturday nights to get a seat as the place does fill up quickly.

“Classy and Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

Stopped in twice late in the evening after sitting in a conference each day. Tired and weary. Bistango makes excellent drinks, the staff gives great advice if you are not much of a martini drinker (their specialty), and provides a superb setting to relax. Music comes in the form of concert dvd's on their big screens if live music is not available. One night Kings of Leon, the other was The Eagles. I came in too late in the evening each night to sample the food. A great place to settle into and relax while sipping a well made cocktail. This truly is a gem in Downtown Spokane.
