PISTACHE is a Parisian-style French bistro with a Mediterranean twist. It serves simple, delicious meals made with fresh, local and imported products. It seats 180 people and is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.
Prices are moderate and the recipes nutritionally healthy. Service is casual and efficient. The atmosphere is upbeat with a definite European flair. The interior is reminiscent of the Art Nouveau, which defined most brasseries and bistros opened in 1920"s Paris. It boasts cozy seating with numerous red leather banquettes, a full bar and giant antique mirrors. The restaurant has a feel of "Always been there". It is classic, retro-modern and sophisticated but unpretentious.
The outdoor patio overlooks Centennial Park, the Fountains and the Intracoastal Waterway. It is shaded with large umbrellas and seats 30 people in a Riviera-like setting.

We have been to Pistache twice before. This Valentine Day we thought we would try it. Dinner was rushed , room was noisy, food was fair, and very expensive. Dinner for two , with two glasses of wine, and one Martin was over $350 with tip, ( which they included on the check).
We’ve spent more on single meal ( La Tour d’Argent in Paris over $1500 for two ) but they were very special places with special presentation and incredible food.

Save your money , skip Pistache , it’s not worth it.

We’re not clear about set menu for 80 bucks per person would not substitute appetizer or dessert and automatically added 20% and charged extra for alcohol

Disappointed by prix fix Valentine’s Day promotion. Total tab for two, with unsatisfactory $55 bottle of NZ SAUVIGNON BLANC, was a whopping $283.21 (with automatic 20% gratuity added)! Not up to Pistache’s normally high standards and value.

PS: Service was very good.

The experience of going to Pistage starts with convenient valet parking ( free during day), close to the location. The access to the restaurant is easy and the welcome warm and quick. We where rapidly escorted to our table. Our server quickly was at our side offering warm and knowledgeable advice, including wine service. Ah...the food, from the first course to desert excellent, each bit a pleasure to savour. We will be back.

Waited at the bar. Bartender was less than friendly.
Food service was pretty good, although I had to ask for water. Several times I had to look all around for my server who was pleasant once contact was made. The soup (cream of leek? and parsnip) had a rich, dreamy base but was way over salted. The lamb shank (Moroccan style) was very tender but bland, vastly under-spiced. The salmon was divine. The duck ravioli small plate was to-die-for. Love the ambience.

The food is good, the ambiance is cozy, but the presentation of the plates is not refined for a restaurant of this caliber : they should be visually more appealing. I had the filet mignon, which was tender and well seasoned, but it was served with fries only (42$ plate). A few vegetables to accompany the meet would have been nice.

The dinner we had at Pistachio was trying on many levels. It took a very long time to receive any food and the wait in between courses was extensive. The waiter indicated the chef does not like to many any changes, which we found unhelpful. Two of us enjoyed the meal, especially the filet mignon and the profiteroles. Avoid the cauliflower risotto at all costs..it was extremely heavy, not as described. The mahi mahi was salty and barely edible. The manager begrudgingly agreed to comp us one dessert. We asked for a second and he went along with that. The noise level was unpleasantly high. Will definitely not return.

The food was outstanding and the breadth of the menu was especially nice. I haven't had steak tartare in years because so many places have dropped it but theirs was exceptional. I would go back just for that. Our group had fish and beef and everyone was very happy.

We dined at Pistache pre-theater. Everything was great except for the fact one group of 5 or 6 people brought a child who was about a year old. He shrieked and made other noises throughout our meal and that of many others. This is really an adults only restaurant but I don’t suppose that this venue has any control over this kind of thing. The food and service were excellent.

Enjoyed this place very much. All the staff we interacted with were attentive and fun.
We had appetizers and small plates. The arugula salad was simple and delicious. The moules were outstanding. Nice and buttery/garlicy. We look forward to returning and trying some of the other dishes.

met some good friends for dinner and It met and exceeded our expectations. we sat outside as it was a beautiful evening and we noticed that inside was a bit noisy for our sensitive hearing because of our limited hearing skills based on our ages ( ; )... The food and service was spot on only wished we could have been able to consume more as so many things sounded delicious! We will certainly be back

Excellent food and service. Noise level is up there but we still seemed able to talk. Lovely server. Our only disappointment was by the time we got to dessert the bread pudding was gone...but both Tartares were excellent, and everything was perfectly cooked. Don’t miss the valet parking though as parking is tricky!

This was our third time here and we brought friends from out of town and we had a wonderful experience. Peter our waiter was amazing and very knowledgeable about food and wine. The sweetbreads were some of the best I have had and will be my go to there. It was noisier than we remember the previous times but we were sitting right next to the bar. We will definitely go back and recommend.

This is the perfect restaurant for a business lunch. The menu is varied and the prices are reasonable. The food is always outstanding as is the service. It is possible to have a quiet conversation without ever feeling that you are being rushed.
