We arrived at 3:45pm and ordered chips, drinks (nonalcoholic), and pizza. It took us until 5:30, and there were only 3 other tables there. Service was ridiculously slow. We probably only had our food about 15 minutes. Pizza looked and tasted like microwaved cheese on...More

Was with a large group for a business dinner. The service was friendly, but very slow. There were only few others in the restaurant at the time. However, the food was excellent with a good-sized portion. Good selection on the menu including pastas and pizza....More

We stopped at Pistachio's with a friend who suggested this spot. At first glance, we were surprised by the cost of the meals. Most lunch options were upward of $15. I opted for the special salad of the day which included, apple slices, spinach, gorgonzola...More

Hello, I am sorry for your time here @ Pistachios. No one informed me of any issues that day. I can say that the special salad you had that day was not listed as a spinach salad, is was described as mixed greens. Sorry for...More

Menu was pretty limited- daughter wanted chicken and there were not many options. Also a bit pricey. The burgers were cooked to order but lacking in toppings and flavor. Great selection of martinis, however- will stop by next time for a few drinks!

Stopped by for lunch. Husband and I shared a turkey avocado club sandwich. Got it with fresh chips. Sandwich was average at best and definitely not up to the level of quality one would expect at $12.99. Will never return.

This is a fun casual place with funky atmosphere. Great bar and a nice selection of food with excellent service. You can sit outside in nice weather. It's not a cheap place but the value is there. I have been going there for many years....More
