Bistecca Italian Steakhouse & Wine Bar Ratings and Reviews
My spouse and I ate at Bistecca this past Sunday. We were looking forward to dinner as we have had good experience before but we came away disappointed. The restaurant was relatively empty when we arrived and we were seated at an intimate corner booth. I had beef carpaccio to begin and a lobster risotto, from the specials menu. The carpaccio was excellent but the lobster risotto was bland, and the seafood tasted like plain chicken. My spouse had wild mushroom soup, another special, and the stuffed chicken breast. The soup was quite good, but the chicken was uninspired.
The atmosphere to begin our meal was quite pleasant, but midway through our meal they seated a very large, very loud family directly outside our booth, in an otherwise empty restaurant. All in all a disappointing meal.
Service was excellent, which improved the review I gave by one star.
We will not be returning anytime soon.
As always Bistecca was incredible! The food is outstanding. The only thing that bothered me was that we were early for our reservation and were told we could sit at the bar but on the restaurant side as the lounge side was full. We sat there for at least 20 minutes and not once did anyone ask if we would like to order a beverage. My husband and I frequent Bistecca quite often and we were recognized by staff and still no service while seated at the bar. That was a little disappointing. However, after we were seated the service and food was amazing as always.
What we ordered was delicious! As a celiac, to have soup and gluten free bread as an appetizer is a real treat. I also have a tree nut allergy. I was accommodated safely and wonderfully. The server was excellent and was knowledgeable for my dietary concerns. We have visited Bistecca many times, but will definitely put this restaurant on our frequent list.
We took a friend here for dinner. The food was very good, although my sirloin steak was a bit tough. The wine selection is good and we enjoyed the house wine selections. Overall, it was a good experience, although a bit pricey, but we will return in future.
What a gem! The ambiance, food and service was impeccable. You are treated royally from the moment you walk in until you leave - just puts a smile on your face.
The food is absolutely delicious. I don't know how they do it, but they do. We did not sample the wine, but they certainly have a variety available along with special dine and wine options. I also did notice that they are starting a BYOB evening.
Very impressed with how the Manager on duty was very "hands on". He brought us to our table, introduced us to our server, brought and opened our bottle of wine and even prepared some of the tables ( linen, cutlery etc). He even came by a couple of times to make sure everything was to our liking.
Always fine, never a issue with service or wine selections in the 3 yr's of dining at Bistecca.
With my wife, enjoys several different choice's of wine or tasty Italian creations. Its always fine dining experiences that i enjoy. This is one of better in Edmonton.
Lovely decor, on the expensive side, my meal wasn't prepared as was identified on menu. Their resolution was to pack a replacement chicken breast to take home. Of course, this was thrown away. It would have been so easy for them to comp an inexpensive side and have us leave quite happy.
Would think twice before returning....
My wife and I were very impressed with the excellent service and very delicious food. The New York steak was one of the best I have ever eaten in a restaurant. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the Beef Ribs Ravioli which was very tasty and original. We thought that the entire New Years Eve dinner was reasonably priced for the splendid food, service and ambiance. The decor of the restaurant was very appropriate.
When we held our daughter's birthday celebration at Bistecca Steakhouse in Edmonton on an eaarlier occasion, the food and service were also exceptionally good. We will certainly recommend Bistecca to our friends and relatives.
We came to Bistecca for a New Years Eve dinner.
Right from the moment we walked in and handed our coats to the hostess, we felt welcome and comfortable.
Our server Melanie (maybe Melody?) was gracious and efficient with the exact amount of attention given to us.
Our meals, from start to finish were perfection - couldn't have found anything to improve.
There was a special menu for the evening with plenty to choose from, satisfying any desire or taste.
The ambiance was soft lighting, quiet enough for conversation yet enough background noise to feel very private.
It was a perfect date out, on a special evening.
This was our first visit - but we'll be back for certain!
Went as a company Christmas function. First time experience at this restaurant. Loved the atmosphere and dining room. Went in early to seat at the lounge and have a drink and tapas until dinner but was disappointed with service in the lounge. Perhaps it was because only two of us had alcoholic beverages (3 people in our group do not drink) and we were a quiet group but everyone wanted to be part of the experience. After quite some time, we flagged down our waiter and said we would like to order tapas. He asked that we go to the dining lounge. We stated we had a reservation for later so he said he would get us in early and ushered us to the dining room.
Service, price and ambiance suggested a 'special experience'. However food was exceedingly mediocre. We were told that 'Sonny' the head chef for the Sorrintino's chain was cooking so we should have steak. They were dry and chewy. The special risotto was bland and overcooked. Wine was very marked up, even by Edmonton standards. Over all a mediocre meal at premium prices.
Our table was a circular table in the lounge, not great for 4 people and our main course dishes. This was our second time dining at Bistecca, the first was absolutely amazing. This time our steaks were just ok, the table was right by the bar. Wasn't the same experience as the first time.
We enjoyed our dinner/evening at Bistecca very much. Our server was patient and helpful. One member of our party ordered something not on the menu and she was very obliging in trying to accommodate him. my lemon veal was tender and delicious. My husband's bison ravioli was also excellent. All dishes were presented beautifully also. We had the cheese plate for dessert and enjoyed the variety of cheeses presented.
If I had one suggestion for Bistecca it would be that they reupholster their booths. It doesn't make a good impression when the first thing you see at your table is a booth that is cracked and worn.
All in all a very positive experience. We shall return!
Date night with a new lady friend, was our second date and was totally impressed with the restaurant. Our booking was there as requested, we had a nice cozy romantic booth, our sever was attentive, but not pushy. Wine list was good, and I ordered a wonderful bottle of wine from Quails Gate, which just happens to be my favourite winery!! Fortunately my date enjoyed my choice. The food was fantastic. The young lady and I were both very happy with our choices. I would certainly recommend anyone looking for a great date experience to visit Bistecca.
