I've been coming to Irvine for years. For some reason, I never knew Bistango was here. Too bad, because it's a great place for business dinners & really good food. It is expensive, but the menu is very varied, w/ something to please everyone, and if one is dieting or not breaking the bank, it offers a variety of less... More

It's so dependable. You know you'll get tasty food with impeccable service. You need a reservation as lunch tables are always full. Lunch is more expensive that comparable spots in the area but you know you'll leave Bistango feeling fine.

We have dined at Bistango several times in the past, but were disappointed with the food this time. The menu has been revised recently and not for the better. Our favorite salad has been removed and the beef ravioli and venison preparations are not nearly as good as the old ones. That coupled with room temperature serving temperatures, the under... More

Went here with friends recently, I think this is a great place to go for a business meeting or even a night out with your spouse or significant other. Just be aware it is expensive, service is perfect, meal is great, this is certainly a restaurant where yo get what you pay for. Located in the lobby of an office... More

I had multiple great business meetings at Bistango. Ambiance is good, noise level is low so one can discuss.

Bistango is located in the atrium of an office complex. Drive right past it and never know what you are missing. Steak and lamb are excellent. Several starters and desserts are outstanding. On top of this is the live music which is always top notch although the small dance area can get crowded. High tent ceiling makes for a low... More

Unbelievable experience. Excellent service. Our waiter Manny was outstanding! Numerous helpful suggestions. Both my wife and I had salads to start. My wedge salad had too strong blue cheese for my taste but otherwise a spectacular meal. Wife had 10 oz strip loin which was superb. I had 14oz rib eye with peppercorn sauce. It was very very good. Thanks... More

I've eating here several times throughout the years and the food is always good. The service is great too. Have to say, however, the prices are higher than they should be.
