Pistache French Bistro
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.

Sophie was a delightful and excellent server.
We were seated right away and had a wonder dinner. Their French bread is a real highlight here!
This continues to be one of my favorites. The bread is the best, the service is always good and the food is wonderful. The prices have ticked up a bit since I started coming here several years ago so I can’t call it a bargain anymore - just a great restaurant.
The sea bass I had was cooked to perfection and my dates salmon was excellent too!
This neighborhood gem was a block away from our hotel. They offered outdoor dining which was lovely. The menu is nice—a good French bistro.
We had a nice salad each. My daughter had a truffle pasta dish. I had steak frites. Delicious.
Very attentive service from our waiter.
Great early dinner. I got to have my Croche Monsieur. So good. Super waiter.
Everything was amazing from the food to the service! We really wanted the foie gras but were disappointed it wasn’t on the menu currently.
Excellent food and ambiance with superior service. The wine list provided excellent choices by the glass as well as the bottle.
Our favoritr place for a light meal. Great ambience, food and service. Can still smell the rich scent of escargot coming from the kitchen!
The steak tartare was different than many others I have had in that the added ingredients overwhelmed the beef. My wife preferred this preparation while I like more subtle flavors. But I still enjoyed. The peppers stuffed with braised oxtail was interesting and very good. I wish the coq au vin was braised longer so the meat would be moist and fall off the bone.Instead the legs were dry and chewy. For the first time in many years I sent it back. The manager who was very professional told me this is the way the chef prepares it and a remake would not be much different. I stubbornly wanted coq au vin and asked to try again instead of ordering another dish. The remake was still pretty dry but the sauce was tasty. I have had much better coq au vin. The duck breast was perfectly medium rare with a sauce we just loved.The service was friendly even though it was a busy Ssturday night. And the restaurant is pretty as nd warm. The restroom was large and well equipped..very clean.I just had my heart set on the coq au vin and was disappointed. Still I will return and order domething else
Great experience my only negative comment would be, we had a delicious bottle of wine, but the waitress never poured it into our class the whole night..a bit of a bummer..
One of our favorite restaurants in WPB. Spanish mussels and Coq Au Vin was excellent as always.
Service was great as well.
Great food, great service. Two people in our party had one of the daily specials, a Spanish pork dish, that was melt-in-your-mouth tender, one of us had the short ribs, which was equally tender and tasty, and one of us had the lamb loin (not rack of lamb as shown on the menu, but we were told that by our server when we ordered), which was wonderful as well. The onion soup, the French bread, and the profiteroles were as good as always. Top all that off with a reasonably priced bottle of good wine, and it was about as good as it gets.
Had the perfect table! Wonderful waiter, Antoine!
I haven’t been to Pistache in a while, but i wanted to go back for a very good french meal. I did enjoyed very much. The Appetizers and main course were very good, but i was disappointed with the dessert. They have a small plates(Tapas) menu and choose their Spanish dessert. Churros with dark chocolate sauce. But the churros even that were crunchy outside, the inside was not done and it was soft. Better go for the traditional next time.
Perfect in every way. Zucchini blossoms were delicious. My duck was wonderful. Everything including service were great
We have been to Pistache several times in the past. Always a good experience. This time we enjoyed an all-new menu. And while there were several favorites missing, we loved the duck confit! Mussels as usual were excellent. And, of the cocktails are classic!
We loved everything about this Bistro, will definitely go back! The ambiance was wonderful albeit slightly noisy and difficult to hear, but who needs to talk anyway! Wine terrific, food sensational, wow
Everything is done very, very well.
We have been to this restaurant several times and always found it to be good.
Unfortunately it was a very busy Saturday night and we had to wait a very long time for our appetizer and entree.
We had guests with us from out of town so we were embarrassed by the long wait.
We booked our table for a pre-theatre dinner. We informed our server when we sat down that we were going to Dramaworks and she stated that she knew the show began at 8:00pm. What she DID NOT inform us about was that Pistache and Dramaworks have an arrangement for theatre-goers whereby they can order from a three course prix fixe dinner. We had not idea until we went to pick up our tickets after dinner and was informed about the list of restaurants who participate in this service. I told them we had not been given this option even though our waitress knew we were going to theatre and they suggested we call the manager to complain. I am writing this review instead so other's don't loose out!
Oh my gosh, we had a marvelous time, thanks to Mark...Food was yummy and can't wait to return.
Three of us enjoyed a delicious chicken paillard, and enjoyed solicitous service. Kudos.
This is our fourth visit this season. We brought friends who also loved it as much as we do!
They had filet mignon au poivre and loved it. Our other friend also had a strip steak and enjoyed every bite.
As on the previous trips, we enjoyed our entrees and the wine. Lovely!
Delicious and friendly. It’s perfect for brunch. Don’t forget to ask for an expresso martini!
Nice, all around. Very different to have a conversation, we were a fairly large table though. (6)
First, the valet parking deal was superb as I always worry about parking on Clematis Street. Our server Alexa was great, she played music for us, and turned on the livingroom light as well..(joke)
Food was good. Bloody Mary's were good too. A little pricey, but that is what it is for brunch on Saturday afternoon on Clematis Street. Second time we went there, first time, maybe three years ago, we just fell into it. But I remembered it as being nice, so we went there again on Saturday afternoon.
Always a great meal at Pistache. Had the smoked salmon appetizer, and the chicken and waffles. Best chicken and waffles I’ve ever had. The way they fried the chicken. Soooo good. Not breaded, just perfect crisp skin. We had a pitcher of mimosas. Really wanted to try the Bellini but they were out of nectar. We sat outside and it was perfect weather and live music playing during the WPB Green Market. Great place to do lunch and visit Green Market. Added plus is you can valet for up to two hours and have the restaurant stamp your ticket. We ended up staying longer and got charged $6 valet even with the stamp. Great experience. Always great food and service!
Half the plates we ordered were real good. The other half not so. This was our second time. Felt the same way the first time. Don’t know if I’ll go back
It was an entertaining dinner especially with the table next to us.
Group of friends. Enjoyed dinner. Waitperson was great.. patient and helpful.
Service was poor at the bar and table. Very noisy not a special meal as expected.
This was our first experience with the new menu and we were a bit disappointed. The octopus appetizer is no longer available and it appears as though items were removed. We use to enjoy the Mahi Mahi and that is no longer there. We had the muscles as an appetizer and it was very good. The Chilean Seabass was cooked to perfection and it was good. The swordfish was a bit disappointing in taste. The Wine List is somewhat extensive but the pricing has gone up dramatically from what it was. As far as dessert goes, the Ferrier Roche Chocolate Mousse was okay and the Lemon Meringue Desert as also disappointing. The Bread Pudding that we enjoyed is also no longer on the menu.
This was our second visit to Pistache and it was delightful! The swordfish over cauliflower risotto was amazing. My husband had the salmon over ratatouille and he raved about it. My sister order croque madame and was in heaven. We shared a lemon tart - unbelievable!
The service was impeccable and the experience outstanding.
We will be back!
This was our first time in the newly established Bistro P area of the bar. It's a very smart addition to this excellent restaurant. There is a menu specifically for this area which contains both some items from the main menu and some specifically added for the Bistro P area. The combination is varied, enticing and thoughtfully put together.
The service too low. I had to wait long time for a beer
At the end...my wife said:"it's not possible!!!" the two desserts she was after were sold out....
Sorry, not for me anymore
