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. –Patti Carlson | Sebring, Florida

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.

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. –Steve | Lady Lake, Florida

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! –Tom & Kathy | Punta Gorda, Florida

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. –Gwynne Balson | North Port, Florida

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! –Dottie Burns | Punta Gorda, Florida

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. –Tina | New York City
