This past Saturday evening, we decided to try Bistecca Houston at 224 Westheimer in Montrose. We were joined with good friends, one being a vegetarian.
What an evening of fine dining! The ambiance was inviting and exciting. The piano music set a mood for enjoying a good meal and great conversation. After visits from the waiter, manager and bread server, we were ready to order our evening meal.
Having been told on good authority, I tried the Lobster Bisque, the tomato salad and a bone-in rib-eye cooked to perfection. My wife had the arugula salad and Sea Bass. Our guest ordered wedge salads, Rib-eye steak and, the vegetarian in our group ordered Parmesan Baked Sweet potato Gnocchi, creamed spinach and potato’s au gratin.
Everything was perfect. I could not help but close my eyes as I tasted my wife’s Sea Bass. What an exceptional dish, not that my rib-eye was not full of flavor as well.
We capped off the meal with a new favorite, Bistecca cheese cake. Unlike most cheese cakes, this is made from homemade cheese and has a unique, light and flavorful taste. Don’t get me wrong, I love New York style cheesecake but this is on a different scale and level. “Incredible” is not suffice. Coffee to close out and kick back to great piano tunes from years gone by.
I strongly recommend Bistecca for many reasons but Chef Alberto’s creations are an experience to enjoy. The attentive wait staff and support personnel rivals the best available. Big thumbs up! Way Up!
