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.

My wife and I had seen the reviews and decided to try it. Great service. Amazing food. Great prices. We'll be back soon. And seriously, this food is great. It rivals the Capital Grill and Eddie Merlot's at half the price. Enjoy!

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!

Always good. I especially like the Chilean Sea Bass. Usually I have the entree as described, this time I asked the cream sauce be held. Fish still excellent. Husband had sliders, enjoyed them very much. Great neighborhood gem to be sure.

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.

We had a great waiter, forgot his name( bearded young gent) very accommodating and has personal charm. Ordered calamari and it wasn’t great. Middle of the road, really . Our entree’ of steak and prime rib was, on the other hand, very good! Vegetables needed better seasoning. Surprised that baked potato was not offered with entree’.

Our server, James, was very slow. We were seated 10 minutes before he brought bread. Drinks were fine. Our reservation was for 5:45pm. We did not finish our meal until 8:00 pm. Had fisherman’s platter, 2 salmon dinners and a steak. Steak was full of grissel. Salmon was overpowered by berry sauce. Service was the worst problem. We did not think it would take over 2 hours to have dinner, especially when the restaurant was not full. No one waiting at any time. After we were finished eating, it took almost 15 minutes to bring the checks. An unsatisfactory, disappointing experience that we will not be repeating.

Another great meal at Sterling's Bistro. Food consistently delicious; service also excellent. Occasion was mom's birthday -- Sterling's comps the bday person's meal as long as you dine on the actual birthday and another meal is purchased. There were four of us, and all of us were pleased with our food and cocktails. Too full for desert.

Love this place as it's not a chain restaurant and the prices are reasonable for quality of food and service. If you've not been, try it on a Sunday afternoon during happy hour (Noon-6:30 daily including weekends) and order the BBQ pork sliders, which come with very yummy homemade potato chips.

The young lady bartender at the bar was horrible while we were waiting for reservation. There were two bartenders that evening and she was doing nothing while other one was doing all the work. There were only eight people at the bar and all she focus on was looking at her phone and talking to two men. The other complaint was that the beer (bottle) was extremely warm. I even ordered one during dinner and it was warm. Not happy this time.
