Very nice authentic bistro. High quality ingredients, excellent cooking. We had the Coq au Vin and Flatiron Steak entrees which were perfectly prepared, flavorful. Frites were good but not great. Wine list was varied and appropriately priced. Service was excellent. Slight noise from music played next door but otherwise atmosphere was great. We'll be back

The ambiance was lovely when we first arrived for a lunch scheduled for 11:30. As the hour commenced, the number of diners increased as did ,understandably, the level of noise. This was no fault of the restaurant but rather that attributable to the lack of manners on the part of some diners. My friend and I enjoyed a lovely lunch with impeccable service. The only negatives were that first, we were disappointed because we had hoped for omelette entrees, which were told were only available at Sunday brunch and second, I had hoped the restaurant would provide a little complimentary cupcake or some such sweet for my friend when I asked, as she was my guest for her birthday. It would have been good PR to accommodated my request. Too bad.

We sat outside and it wasn’t very crowded so the noise level was ok. I ordered a small plate crab salad. It was ok in size and tasty but the amount of crab was negligible. Would not order again. My friend’s tuna entree was well received but given the price, it could have been larger.

We travelled here to dine with our friends who are from France. We had some authentic dishes and our friends enjoyed them. The service was excellent from our waitress. However, the restaurant is extremely loud and there was a very loud movie playing in the courtyard outside.

Very nice place and the food was okay.The raclette was the special of the evening, I commend the chef for his resolve to execute this dish but the cheese was cold by the time it got to the table.The place is too small to do table side service which would certainly solve that issue.I was trained as a chef at two restaurants in Philadelphia, Le Bec Fin and then The Fountian at the Four Seasons and I tell you your menus warm the heart of the people who love classic French food.I will certainly return to try more items.The squash blossoms were very tasty and I loved the mussels,my wife and daughter had the special.

We, my wife and I, went for the featured item of the day - raclette. It is a type of Swiss cheese that melts readily and is served from a pan used for melting, on top of potatoes or other vegetables. Two versions were offered and we tried both. One was a Swiss Raclette in which the raclette cheese was served on the potatoes along with charcuterie ( prosciutto, salami and a type of bologna) as well as cornichons, small onions and a small salad of mixed greens. The other was called Mediterranean Raclette where again the Raclette was melted on potatoes but was accompanied by various vegetables like broccoli and a salad.

The Swiss would typically serve a fondant wine with this but it wasn’t on the wine list. We chose a very nice rosé from Provence which went perfectly with the Raclette. Our dessert was a clafoutis made with almond flour topped with a type of almond praline and creme fraiche. Cognac was an excellent accompaniment to the dessert.

Everything was delicious, freshly prepared and authentic and reminded us of Switzerland. Service from a very bright and capable Albanian waitress was impeccable.
The meal was not inexpensive but we considered it a good value given the first rate experience.

The steak, ordered medium rare came out medium to well done. Had to reorder and they got it right the second time.
But for the high prices, why does there have to be a second time? Mussels were excellent, fries were cold and not tasty. Last year had a mediocre meal and were were charged to 2 bottles of wine instead of one. Took days to get them to take it off my credit card. Will not go back.

Excellent brunch. Great menu choices. Our waitress was very good, but not outstanding -- just a bit slow. The my friends had eggs benedict, short rib hash and quiche. All looked great and they all said they enjoyed them very much. I had an omelette that was OK. I don't think it has anything to do with their quality, though. I think they might put flour in the omelette to make it fluffy, and I just don't prefer that. Next time, I'll have the short rib hash -- it looked AWESOME!

We made a reservation for dinner but noticed that they had a happy hour. We enjoyed several of the small dishes. The mussels, the roasted cauliflower and broccolini, the escargot and the lobster beignets were all delicious. We have been here before but are already planning to return.

We went for New Years Eve which is never the best time to try out a place. There was a fixed menu (either regular or vegetarian). One of our party is allergic to fish so we asked if we could “mix and match” between the 2 menus and we were told “no”. There were no changes or substitutions permitted. We had to pick either menu. As it was we worked things out and 2 of us took one menu and 2 took the other. The food was pretty good. My only comments are that a risotto on the veg menu was over salted and the dessert was a way too large piece of a chocolate tiramisu cake. I wouldn’t hesitate to try this place on a regular nite. Also their wine list had some reasonably priced options.

My wife and I had seen the review on Check Please South Florida and we had to go to Pistache. We were seated right away and a waitress came over quickly. There wine list is extensive and we had a glass of wine each. Service was excellent and we did not feel like we were rushed. Our meals were also excellent. We shared a Crepe Suzette and it was outstanding. The ambience made me feel like I was in Paris. We will definitely return soon.

Great place. Great food. Filet was one of the best I’ve had in south Florida. Coq-a-vin was gorgeous. Service was solid. I think maybe about as close to a European dining experience as you’ll find around PB/WPB.
Definitely on my list of regular places to stop into now.

Pistache was the perfect place to celebrate Christmas Eve with family. The entrees —duck, boeuf bourguignon and steak frites—were delicious. Featured cocktails included a french pear martini. Wine by the glass could use some improvement.

The service was not very good. We waited much too long for our meal, and even after our waiter came by to tell us it would be ready in 5-6 minutes, we waited an additional 15 minutes. We were clearly not pleased by the time our food arrived but the waiter did not apologize for the delay or acknowledge our wait. The cheese plate was surprisingly disappointing. The Brie was not soft at all and too cold... it did not seem fresh. My grilled mahi mahi was salty. For the price, I feel that the quality of food and service should’ve been significantly better.
