Very warm and cozy atmosphere, not noisy. Well diversed menu and flavorful with top notch dishes at a very reasonable price, compared to a lot of other restaurants with the same setting and dishes.

We called for reservations late on a Saturday afternoon and got 7:00 pm which I didn't consider a good sign. After reading all the good reviews we were expecting something pretty good but not steakhouse quality. I ordered a 10 oz prime rib and it was thinner than a 1/2 pound burger and was tough but it was cooked properly. Drinks were watery and even adding an extra shot were still not good and we didn't finish them. We will never be back for dinner but maybe a lunch. There is too much competition on Hall road to sustain a mediocre restaurant so I wouldn't expect them to be there for the long run.

My husband and I have gone to Sterling's for years and have found it's consistently good -- good food, good drinks, good service, and good value. It's not crazy noisy -- you can have a conversation with your dining companion(s), but not so quiet you feel like everyone can hear you -- a nice, lively hum. They've a great happy hour - try the pulled pork sliders - and a great birthday special. Highly recommend!

We returned to the Sterling Bistro because it is one of our favorites. Our party of four celebrated our anniversaries. One had steak, one had seafood pasta and two had the Chilean sea bass. Everyone was pleased with their selection. My husband and I also shared the beet arugula salad and crepe brûlée for dessert. On top of that we took advantage of the happy hour drinks which were a good value. Great experience.

Our waitress was excellent. We had the twin lobster tails. They were to die for. The French onion soup was awesome and so was the bumpy cake with ice cream. This restaurant has triple lobster tails on Monday for $21.99. I was told if you go on Monday you must make reservations.

We always go there for our anniversary. The food is great and August is lobster month. This year our whole family went there for Father's Day dinner. It was great. You have great prices on Lobster. We tell all of our friends about your Lobster deals. So now a lot of our friends also go to your restaurant.

We celebrated my son's 25th Birthday on Saturday evening, we are a family of four and couldn't decide where to go, (we wanted something different from the norm) so I made the decision to go to Sterling Bistro and I'm so glad I did! The restaurant was nice and peaceful, the wait staff was very attentive and the food was amazing! My husband (who is extremely critical) and Birthday son had the prime rib, they absolutely loved it! I had the lobster tails over a bed of pasta, all I can say is yum yum! My younger son had the Seafood Pappardelle which in his words "outstanding" he couldn't believe all the sea food in his entree. Try Sterling Bistro you won't be disappointed!

Appetizer and dinner was outstanding! The only issue was their online ad states FREE meal on your birthday. So we ordered two delightful entrees only to have the waitress tell us AFTER our meal that there were only two choices for the free birthday meal. Fortunately, the manager had no issue and removed the least priced meal from our bill.
We will definitely be going back. Wonderful food and presentation.

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of service and menu the first time. This this time confirmed it. The best crab cake recipe this side of the Atlantic! Hardly detectable binder...all shrimp and crab with a delicious topping of ginger slaw. I'm hooked!

Our server seemed enthusiastic but didnt seem to hear us when we made comments regarding the food. Our friend informed him that she only ate 1/2 her fish because it was overcooked there was no reaction at all. Maybe that’s normal? The mushroom appetizer was good. The meatball lollypops were way too salty. My paella was just ok. My friends fish we already mentioned. Overall a so-so experience. Shame though it seemed to have promise.
