We gathered at the Torch yesterday for my Dad\'s 87th birthday. Dad has advanced Alzheimer\'s & is incapable of making decisions, reading, etc. Mom is legally blind, gets easily confused and is nearly deaf. Our server was fabulous with them. I can\'t remember her name but she was slender, had curly dark hair, a gorgeous smile and sparkly personality. When she realized Mom and Dad had trouble hearing, she knelt and spoke slower. When taking their order she called them Mom and Dad - ver

Great Food and Service - We shared the mussels, a great grilled Caesar salad and the Mahi-Mahi. We loved the food, but the service from Heidi was over the top Great. She was so friendly and personable, not only with us, but others there. She was knowledgeable and timed everything very well. We will definitely keep the Torch on our "go to" list.
Note :
Heidi is great!

Great evening with friends - We had a reservation for two and when we arrived we happened to meet 4 of our friends who also had reservations. The restaurant was quick to get us a table off six. Lenore our waitress was outstanding and on top of everything even though the restaurant was busy. The servings were quite generous. The table all went different directions for dinner. There was a duck , prime rimb, applewood pok loin, mahi, pot roast and Osso Buco. Everyone said there dinners were h

Always a Winner - The torch, although a bit off restaurant row, is always a winner, and not to be overlooked in a city full of good restaurants. Everything is top notch--one of the best in Punta Gorda, and certainly our favorite

As Always, a Great Dinner! - We took our son & his family, which included a 5 year old to the Torch Tuesday night to celebrate the kid's 40th and 41st birthdays. Heidi was our server and did her usual fantastic job. She also was great with our grandson. The food, service and ambiance was first rate as always!

Ate dinner 14 March 2013 and cannot wait to go back. The calamari is to die for! Could make that a double order and call it dinner. Everything was cooked to perfection and the staff from the bartender to servers were at one's beck and call. No one rushed us through as we were busy visiting with friends. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Torch Bistro to anyone. Thank you for a beautiful evening.

Best meal I've had in the Punta Gorda area for years...and we've been searching regularly. Filet was tender and blue cheese topping excellent. duck was crispy and good. Glad we found you! and so close to home!

I would like especially to thank our waiter who went out of his way to help us. An elderly man in our party has hearing problems and so our waiter, Corey, changed our table to a more quiet location in a different room. It made a huge difference and we truly appreciated his efforts. It also happened to be that man's birthday. He was also very helpful explaining the menu.

My husband and I are "snowbirds" and are spending this winter in Punta Gorda. We were so happy to find this place!!!! It is hands down our favorite place for a nightcap or nice dinner. The owners are a breath of fresh air-a wonderful young couple-and the atmosphere is the best. I am a vegetarian, and while the menu does not display many items, Heidi was very quick to accomodate me upon request. Highly recommended.

Heidi & Chef Shane are one of kind owners. They make you feel welcome every time you step in the door. Ask for the booth in the bar if you like to be where all the action is.. or set at table where you see the chef's in action... Just a great little place where they make you feel part of the family. LOVE it!

My husband and I attended our Christmas party at Torch Bistro. First stepping in we were taken back by the beautiful decor... from the beads hanging from ceiling to floor to seperate the rooms, to the beautiful artwork displayed on the walls. The service was more then what could have been expected with the most courteous staff greeting us with smiles and warm welcomes. The food was simply amazing, not only were the portions large, but the food was cooked to perfection. What a fun, warm and welco
