Pricey but everything, everything was delicious! Service was prompt and attentive, but not rushed. The chef even came out to chat with diners.

I am not Jason but I am the one person that the chef came out to talk to about my food restrictions. I was so appreciative of the care he took to prepare me a delicious mushroom soup and using no oils, or dairy in the preparation of the Pappardelle mushroom dinner. The personal attention to detail was wonderful. As for the others who ate met dishes, they loved them. Thank you again. Just sorry I didn't think to get the Chef's name. I would recommend the restaurant again.

Shared the Chicken Liver Pate with my wife - A great start! For mains, my wife enjoyed the Butternut Squash Ravioli and I found the evening special Seafood Risotto was unbelievably delicious!! Light and fluffy chocolate mousse for dessert complimented the meal perfectly. Thank you!!

Pleasant food and service but there was a mix up (!) and our order for the main course was lost for nearly an hour. Staff did what they could to make amends and the evening was very pleasant but the delay was disappointing.

The food was awesome, the noise level was up a little because of a large table celebrating a retirement. The wine suggestion was spot on and the dessert was a taste adventure.

This was our first visit, it was for my birthday, hubby had the special ribeye and was sceptical yet impressed. I had the roasted chicken. The app, we shared the chacuater board, which we debated on the parm. potato soup. The flavours on the board were delicious. We were very happy with our choices and will be back to try terms on the menu. Thank you! We were too full for dessert lol!

We ordered strip loin steaks and frittes as we love BBQ. I found the steak had no BBQ flavours and the frittes were over spiced and over salted. Some may prefer this but I like the BBQ. I enjoy my steak on my big green egg.

We like the place and will be back for more occasions as overall we enjoy the food. Osso Buco is awesome and the wine list is awesome

Nice ambiance. Staff was pleasant. Be prepared to have plenty of time to enjoy your meal. I had soup of the day-potato bacon, excellent, chicken supreme- mashed potato and vegetables,excellent, chicken slightly dry and overcooked to my liking, finished with apple dessert, excellent.

We had a great experience. Good memories too as our Grand Mother ran this same location as a restrauant back in the day. The service was beyond reproach our glasses were always kept full and everyone was helpful and friendly. My beef tenderloin was outstanding... melt in your mouth and the desert rocked. The Valentine deal was well worth the value!
Excellent thank you!

Went to Bistecca for Valentine's Day. They had a special on for $100 for a couple off a special menu. This included bread and oil and balsamic vinegar dip, a choice of two appetizers from 4 choices, a choice of two entrees from 4 choices, a dessert to split and a bottle of vine from 5 choices. Pretty good value for your money. We enjoyed the smoked leek and potato soup, tomato boccinni, Coq au vin and beef tenderloin with chocolate tiramisu dessert. It was all delicious. The service was good for how busy they were. Restaurant was decorated nicely and the noise level was good for how many tables were full. We will return in the future.

I ordered the beet ravioli for Valentine's day and it can with a "beurre blanc" sauce, but I did not enjoy my choice. The sauce did not pair well with the ravioli because it tasted like pure melted butter (ie. no shallots or pepper to it). It would have paired better with seafood instead of pasta. Otherwise, the service was fantastic, the wine was great and the ambiance was nice. :)

We have dined well in Italy, so Bistecca was up to some serious scrutiny. Both the pasta and the boulonnaise were homemade rivaling anything we had in Italy. The organic wine was very surprising considering it's price point. All in all, happy to have had the experience and will return.

Had a nice time. Relaxed visit. Food was very good. Excellent wine selection. Local craft beer. Service was great. A bit loud, but we were seated in the elevated section, so it may have been quieter on the main floor by the windows. Looking forward to returning.
