Attended a private party in their private dining room. Service was extremely attentive. Never had to ask for anything. Had the filet mignon. Excellent! Clam chowder was also very good.

Our family weekly dinner ended us at Bistango, a favorite of my son. Wines are very pricy, so we decided to pay the corkage fee ($18 each) for 2 of our very favorite red wines. When you do the math, the savings are significant. The...More

We had a group dinner at Bistango and was pleased. The food is consistently good (we had a menu of five possible entrees). They were able to place us in a relatively quiet corner, so that we felt part of the restaurant, but also had...More

I am not a frequent patron of Bistango, but do fall back on it for special occasions. We like the artwork and the service. We both had Osso Bucco, which was perfect. Service was excellent, as always.

This place has good food, superb service and great live music every night. The Tapas menu is special. The sea bass and the halibut are always good. They also have oyster shooters that cannot be described in words.

This is one of my favorite restaurants located in a business district that we continue to select because of a nice wine list, quality food and being surrounded by a changing collection of art and sculpture. There is also live entertainment but it's pretty much...More
