Driving up to this restaurant next to a beer distributor in a small strip mall, you don't get the impression that it's a fine dining place. But it turned out to be a very nice contemporary BYOB. Food was delicious, although a bit pricey, and well presented. We had the salmon and the veal entrees and both were very good... More

My wife and I and another couple visited the Pistachio Grill last Saturday. We struggled to get a reservation, but eventually Raymond got us a table for 6:30. Funny, when we got there, several tables were open and stayed open. I had the filet off the special menu. It was cooked perfectly, melted in my mouth. My wife and I... More

Just ate dinner here tonight and it was so good that I came home and wrote this right away. Starting with the Fried Calamari and Friends. It was lightly and deliciously battered. The Fried Goat cheese salad was equally scrumptious and the Rack of Lamb - Oh the Rack of Lamb! Perfect, tender, fresh, seasoned just right. My wife's Chilean... More

Four couples dined together this evening with Mark and Melody as our accomplished servers. We enjoyed very large servings of swordfish with crab and artichoke toppings, a stuffed pork-chop, chopino homemade pasta and wonderful homemade desserts. Chef Ray stopped by our table to highlight a few of the evenings specials. All-in-all a delightful evening with old and new friends and... More

This is a great place to go if you're looking for something a cut above the chain restaurants in the 'burbs, but don't want to go to downtown Philly or break the bank on a super-expensive place. Pistachio Grill is tucked into a small strip shopping center on Limekiln Pike next to a beer distributor (there's also a state store... More

Pistachio Grill has a satisfying menu. Nothing to get very excited about, but nonetheless tasty. Service is good. Would be a good back up restaurant.

You want a place like this to be good because it is a local restaurant that is not pizza. They had a groupon offer at one time, but do not currently have one. If you go, make reservations. The single server said that if they are not busy or do not have reservations lined up they could close very early.... More

We were coming home from a funeral and thought this was a bar pub. Well it's a regular restaurant, no bar but a BYOB. There were only 3 tables occupied and I thought it must be a place for seniors. The staff was very courteous and service was excellent. My hubby had a panini and he liked it very much.... More

Driving by the Pistachio Grill, you would assume this is a breakfast/lunch spot to grab a casual bite - located next to a beer distributor in a strip center. At night however, the restaurant transforms into a BYOB that turns out food worthy of many high-end restaurants. The menu has something for everyone, with fresh tasty food. Service is very... More

If I had rated this restaurant a year ago, it would have had a higher rating. Several of the menu items are quite good, but others are just fair and the entree sizes have decreased. Wait staff is friendly and efficient. Most of the specials are available most of the time and probably should not be considered as specials. Fine... More
