Bistango is my husband and my favorite restaurants! It is a neighborhood gem. We enjoy their delicious food, classy atmosphere, relaxing ambiance, impeccable friendly service and live music that is not loud. The crowd is sophisticated and well mannered. It is always a wonderful dining experience.
We were very impressed with this restaurant. Food was extremely good - especially the fish. Service was excellent - and wine list was pretty extensive - with some very good wine. Atmosphere was hopping - and there was a band - but the band was not too loud and was very pleasant.
We wanted at table in the bar area so we could take advantage of the happy hour menu, although the booths are “first serve” the staff found a place for us and we had a lovely evening. The food was wonderful and the portions just enough for our appetite. We enjoyed the entertainment and dancing. Bistango never fails ❤️
Had a great table perched a few steps over the dining room looking at the live piano. Music, ambiance, and food was great. Service lacked a bit of saavy. I will go back.
Food was awsome 😊😊😊😊😊🙃😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊🙃😊😊😊😊🙃😊😊😊😊💋🙃🙃🙃😊😊😊😊😊😊😊👍👍👍
The service started a little slow where we were asking for bread and drinks but afterwards our waiter was very attentive. The food was excellent and the light music from the band was an added bonus. We truly enjoyed the evening.
Very nice, as always.
Bistango is a great place with good food .. we were disappointed they discontinued their “petite” menu offering.... great food with smaller portions.. obviously don’t know why they discontinued but we enjoyed it last time and it was part of the reason we returned
Have had some good meals at Bistango, but the Thanksgiving dinner was not one. Also as someone who works with wounded veterans, they need to stop letting fake service dogs into the restaurant. Someone had a small untrained toy dog they claimed as a service dog.
Bistango is a normally a great restaurant. But on Thanksgiving they seem to have over-booked. Had to wait 30 minutes, even though we had a reservation. Servers were working really hard, but couldn't quite give the usual excellent service. The turkey dinner was nothing special. The live jazz group was great, but we weren't ready for the cheesy Christmas music with our Thanksgiving meal!
We chose thanksgiving dinner options and the turkey was so very dry, very disappointed
My wife and I had dinner at Bistango on Thanksgiving day. Even though the restaurant was packed, we were seated very quickly. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our waitress was particularly attentive and cheerful. The food was great. The dessert of bourbon bread pudding was especially good. The wine list has a nice assortment of very good half bottles which is nice to find these days. A very energetic restaurant with a large bar and an excellent modern ambiance without being too austere. Live music too! I would highly recommend Bistango for a wonderful dining experience.
bistango saved thanksgiving!
arrived to a surprisingly packed house, so concerns of a “valentine’s day dinner at a restaurant” were dancing in my head.
but they were allayed by the entire staff - they deserve credit for working on thanksgiving! - the ambiance, the music, and the food.
my mom and i had such a lovely evening out, it almost made up for not being able to celebrate with family!
Thanksgiving. Summer is a great server.
I recently attended a luncheon at Bistango with the board of the Guilds of Segerstrom Center. I was quite impressed with the quality of the food, the service and the ambiance. I then made reservations for Thanksgiving dinner for my daughter and son-in-law and myself. We enjoyed a lovely delicious and relaxing Thanksgiving dinner. The food presentation was very appealing and we savored every morsel. The service was gracious and attentive without being overly intrusive. We also enjoyed the free valet parking since it was raining. I recommend Bistango for an enjoyable dining experience.
I expected a much better experience given the rating. Food was good, but nothing special. Service was adequate, but the wait staff was often inattentive. The music provided a great ambiance. I wouldn’t go out of my way to go back.
Glad to know it is still a great place for an occasion, or just to make dinner an occasion. we love the art, the live music, the Chilean seabass, Grand Marnier souffles and the choice of 3oz, 6oz, or 9oz glasses of wine.
Food subpar. Not worth it. Scaled down protein and taste
My fiancee and I celebrated our birthdays on a Saturday night. Our server Victor was attentive and a joy to be with. My fiancee had the lamb chops which were perfectly cooked and I had the Mexican shrimp risotto, also beautifully prepared. We love the live music and that you can dance anytime the urge strikes. We will definitely come here more often for the food, music and service.
Chose this place to celebrate my Birthday with family especially my sis who flew from Colorado. Food was delicious & everyone enjoyed their food. However, service is what disappointed it for me. 1st, the host tried to seat 5 of us in the back center right next to kitchen. Had to wait 15 minutes for a better location. There was no acknowledgement of my birthday nor a birthday dessert and had requested it in my reservation. I had seen the next table with a dessert & candle. Worst part. I had asked our waiter to take a photo of us which he said sure and came back to give me the bill! Had to remind him about the photo. After this experience I don’t plan on coming back. Thank god I didn’t sign up for their VIP program.
Our server was excellent! Everyone was very attentive, food was prepared as requested.
Always a treat... garlic soup is amazing... service impeccable... I tell everyone to go and enjoy a fabulous lunch or dinner.
Been there a few times now. Food has been good but there always is a clunker in the order. Something that is far below the rest. For example, this last time one person ordered The chicken dish - it was tough and tasteless . It was served on top of something we couldn’t even identify. Strange. It is pricy and one would expect it all to be good. Service was fine - the only exception was the valet had to bring 3 different cars before we got the right one!
$20 coupon from Lincoln made lunch very reasonable.
We celebrated my husband's 87th birthday with a meal at Bistango. It did not disappoint us. He ordered his favorite meal, salmon, and was very happy with it. I took the waiter's recommendation of sea bass and was delighted although I don't usually order seafood. It was perfectly seasoned and the mushroom risotto was delicious. We'll be back.
Great as always. Only complaint is that the Chilean Sea Bass is so good it's hard to ever order anything else.
Great as always.
Honestly everything was great. Only issue was with the Valet guy. He was rude and never asked us if we are parking here for the restaurant or not. Our server and food were outstanding.
A favorite for 30 years. Very dependable and classic Cali. Maybe clientele getting a bit older, as a group, like me.
This is the perfect place for a special occasion. From the effusive greetings from the front desk young woman and attentive waiter to the thoughtful mid-meal visit from the manager, the service was first class and matched the elegant surroundings. And the food and drink? It was sublime and generous. The Mojito was complex and refreshing and the Talisker pour was generous. The entrees of an extravagant Paella with Filet Mignon and perfectly prepared Lamb Chops arrived promptly as did the superb Truffle Fries. Finally, the 1/2 portion of Chops and half bottle of wine allowed us to treat ourselves to the exact tastes we wanted without wasteful surplus. We left feeling pampered and satiated. We will return.
Good food and great service.
Contemporary California cuisine in an elegant setting, very good selection of dishes, quiet and well suited for a conversation , live music this evening close to the bar which was good as background.
Service, food and manager Ray made me want to come back and book my holiday party there.
I never comment but the food amazing and the server was great! Very accommodating and very nice. Attentive at all times! I wish I remembered his name. The bday girl spilled a cocktail and most fell on me but he was great to recoup....
Food-,rib steak w/creamy pepper sauce was excellent. Wedge salad different but very good.
Fabulous spot for a birthday celebration! Great complimentary dessert!
Will our waiter was outstanding! The food incredible and the overall experience lovely.
Dinner, Service & Atmosphere outstanding!
Had the Mahi Mahi special. It was amazing. Everything on the menu is delicious and the service is always stellar.
