French
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 overhead awning and seats 30 people in a Riviera-like setting.

Perfection couldn't fault a thing. Been here 50 times and will keep coming. You should also try PB Catch their sister restaurant on the lsland.

I have been to Pistache a few times before and not run into the problem we had on this visit - it was very loud. There was one table of 4 that was extremely loud. Another table asked them to quiet down, to no avail. At one point they left and we thought, YAY! It quieted down to a normal level of conversation. But a few min later they returned and so did the noise. Mgmt did nothing. We reported it on the way out. We were there to celebrate our anniversary so this made it a challenge.
The other point I'll make, OT asks if it's a special occasion. It was, which I noted in our reservation, but was not acknowledged at the restaurant.

Best experience I’ve had at a restaurant!!! This was the most amazing dining experience I’ve ever had and no I’m not on the payroll. We were quickly greeted and brought to our table. Kate was our waitress and she was such a delight. Definitely very knowledgeable about the food and wine pairing. Friendly and enthusiastic about the food she presented us. We started with the cheese and we picked 2 and Kate picked one and it was simple but delectable and Kate was on top of it and got more crustinis for us when she saw we were low. Didn’t even have to ask. We didn’t mind using the French bread that was on the table. It was soooo good! We had to control ourselves.
Also had the mussels that came in a wine sauce and the serving was huge enough for two people easily maybe even 3-4 if also ordering entrees. The mussels were exploding with freshness and were so meaty. Never had mussels that big TBH. Quite memorable. We were full after that and had to pass on entrees and got two more small plates. Escargot and salmon tartare I believe was the name. The salmon was a mix of smoked and raw salmon so the smoke wasn’t overbearing. It was served over a bed of avocado mousse and the cutest little potato chips on top. Inside and on the side were little bits of grapefruit that made for a party in my mouth. I would’ve never thought of putting that in there but it was perfect! Finished our meals with crepes for dessert and the pastry puffs that were covered with dark chocolate sauce. This was such a great experience already made plans to go back next weekend. Thank Kate, we will be looking for you next time. You were delightful and helped made our experience even more memorable. This should be a Michelin Star restaurant. I’ve been to some that tbh wasn’t as memorable as this restaurant.
Side note they have complimentary valet parking. This is nice because I almost parked at a meter in front of the restaurant and the meter said that car must be moved after two hours.

The food was very good and reasonably priced. Our waiter was also very attentive and personable. During the summer starting mid June they will have a buy an entree and get another entree free promotion if you dine early 5:30-6:30PM.

As usual, food was very good. My only complaint is nothing the restaurant can do anything about - namely the incredibly loud and bass-driven music being played by people hanging around the area. It continued throughout our entire meal.

It was an anniversary dinner. When we first arrived we were put at a table that was very close to another couple and in the clear path of every server that came by.
We asked for another and were quickly accommodated.
We were also greeted by our server who acknowledged a birthday.
Aside from those small issues, it was otherwise a very pleasant experience.
The food was excellent and we were not rushed although they were very busy.

When we’re in town we always eat here. They were not on their game at our visit regarding the food. It was ok...the foie gras was pretty terrible. The mussels which are usually off the charts delicious were ok, needed more garlic and maybe salt( can’t believe I’m saying that :) the smoke salmon app was excellent, my husbands lamb was ok. Again under seasoned, my burger was great. Our server ,Marlin , the Bartender (?) - and host&/or manager were incredibly nice and were on pointe. Totally will return next time I’m in town

Our table was ready and waiting for our arrival. The waitress was aware we needed to be at the theater. We were not rushed but attended to, meeting our request to be out at 1:40.
The hot food was hot. The cold food was cold. All presented beautifully. Portions were fine. Bread was warm, butter just about ready to be applied!
Attentive service without being obtrusive.
A lovely luncheon experience.

We were offended when our waitress switched off of our table with no explanation. The new waitress never asked how our food was or if we wanted anything else...which we did.
My husband enjoyed his hamburger and chicken salad (that he took home). As a vegetarian, the options were not very good. The arugula salad was weak...two cherry tomatoes cut in half and cheese on top of the greens...that was it for $13. How about a few more tomatoes and maybe some fruit/other veggies or bring down the cost and make it a light salad. More veggie options would be nice.

We've eaten here many times for brunch before the theater. The food is usually good, the service fair.
I usually have an omelet, but decided to try something different this time. I ordered eggs benedict, a staple brunch item. One half muffin was burned, but with a perfectly cooked egg. The other muffin half was toasted properly, but the egg was totally overcooked, not one drop of delicious yolk ooze. So disappointing! I also ordered pommes frites, which were deliciously crispy, but must have been the last of the batch, most being one inch or less long.

Not on a holiday! They had a brunch running until 3pm we showed up at 12:30 and they were already out of steak frites. We had to ask for bread, ask for butter later, ask for water, ask for refill of water. They asked us to place app, main course and desert order all together like a fast food place. When your paying about $300 for 3 people brunch the service should be impeccable and food as well. Thank god my mother in law and husbands dish was good because I ended up eating theirs as mine was not! Waitress never came to ask and she didn’t even notice I only had one bite of mine. Appetizers were very good and so was the filet and the 1 steak they were able to make for my mother in law. My short rib was a confused mash of flavors :/
