Went for a nice dinner before my girlfriend started back teaching this year. Food was fantastic and we both remarked it had been one of our best meals in quite some time. It's on the pricier side and wine list is expensive too with not many cheaper options but that being said they seem to be aiming higher end and the food and service delivered. We had a great night, would recommend if you're looking for a fancy night out.

While the food was excellent, the service we received on this visit was terrible. I recognize that people can have off days but we were very unimpressed and likely won't return because of this.

We were greeted by a very nice man,who showed us to our table shortly after the waiter came withe the menus,ordered drinks and an order of escargot....the escargot was salty and when I complained to the waiter,I was told that the chef puts it on a bed of salt for decoration and then walked away...when we got our food,everything tasted salty...the waiter never came and asked us how are food was...this was suppose to be a special occasion and I have never been treated so badly

As always, food is very good but service is usually only adequate. Consistently have to ask for bread and water as otherwise you won't receive at all even with ordering full dinner with three or four courses plus drinks.

We were there for early supper (530pm). Bread and oil brought to table with drinks. Nice warm bread. Ordered mussels and asked for more bread for sauce. Mussels were tasty, wonderful sauce. Had to ask for bread again as they were baking new batch (restaurant was empty). Appetizer was amazing. Ordered seafood linguini and spaghetti bolognaise. Pasta dishes were hot and well cooked, a little bland though - not awful but not special. We were early so there was a lacking atmosphere. We were asked a total of 5 times how our food was, server and manager. Nice to check in but a little too much. Probably because it wasn't busy. Good location, good beer and friendly service, just not blown away.

I thought that informing them that we were there for our 25th wedding anniversary that they would be a little more accommodating or would make it a bit more special for us. It was blah 😔

Funny how the table across from us even got a visit from the chef and got a special drink with sparklers and all. I was disappointed.

While the menu looked promising, the experience was less than ideal. We had a server in training - which I can totally understand as a food and beverage manager myself. However, she didn't get much help despite us being told 2 people would be serving us together. We ordered more bread and it never came. Our entrees had clearly sat under the heat lamp too long as the buerre blanc sauce on the steak had spoiled before they arrived - the steaks were also all overcooked (more medium than medium rare as they were barely pink at all). After eating here, and having different plates and ordering different dishes, 3 of us had upset stomachs. The only thing we shared was the bread with olive oil/garlic which could have been rancid... but we did not have a great night following dinner. The food was overpriced for the experience given.

We had the grilled calamari and smoked salmon for appetizers. I found the calamari to be a little spicy, but more concerning was that it was too chewy which good calamari shouldn't be. However, the smoked salmon was very nice ----- very tasty. Our main dishes were the house made bison cannelloni and the stuffed chicken breast, which were very good. I did find the options for wine (by the glass) to be a little thin with little choice in any of the wine categories (i.e. chardonnay, etc. ). Overall, we would certainly go again.

We like Bistecca. It is a natural choice for dinner out alone or with friends or for special occasions, and it is nearby for us. Gluten-free meals are handled well. The restaurant has well-trained and pleasant staff.

Food was amazing, we were there celebrating a very special occasion, however our server seemed very disinterested in being our waitress. She immediately asked us to put in our order as she had a “19 top” getting seated and wanted our order in first. No hello, no how are you and then seemed annoyed that we wanted to start with wine and appetizers. Our salad and meal came out simulateously. Very inattentive to us in general in what appeared to be a 1/2 empty restaurant. We were a table of 8 and spent nearly $500. Although the food was great, the service really put a damper on a very special occasion. That being said, she wouldn’t have known we were celebrating as she was not interested enough to ask much at all. Overall, Bistecca needs to ensure they actually hire servers that want to be at work, she clearly did not!
