    Good Atmosphere and excellent service. Food was reasonably priced and very good. It also came out in a timely fashion. Booths were intimate and noise level was not bad, considering the Bar was right nearby. We would go there again.

    We had a group of eight in for a late birthday lunch for my Dad! We sat outside and it was absolutely beautiful! Our server was Brian B. and his service was exceptional, he took fabulous care of our entire group! Everything out of the kitchen was delicious and perfectly prepared! We tried all the beers offered and enjoyed all of them! Outstanding on all aspects of our meal, service and overall experience!

    The bar food here--the pizza, the burgers, etc.--are alright. However, my steak was overcooked, and my wife had almost no lobster on her lobster mac and cheese. Bastone would do well to eliminate anything trying to masquerade as classy (e.g., the steaks, the seafood, etc).

    The food was delicious. The lobster Mac and cheese was amazing and so was the steak and mushroom pizza. We got a bottle of wine which was pretty good as well. As far as service we sat on the patio and there were only a few other tables out there which made me think our service would be good but it was not, he didn't ask how our main dishes were and getting a water refill was kind of a pain.

    Let me first say, we'll go back. There were several items on the menu we'd like to try and our service was very good. We ordered the Mussels 3-ways and those were very good. The fish and chips entree was not so special, and way overloaded with fries. The fish taco we ordered from the anniversary specials menu was served with an over-sized white Lavash which didn't flatter the Ahi tuna and slaw. A nice soft corn taco shell would have been much preferred.

    My boyfriend and I went to dinner here for a date night. The Ambience was very nice, especially in the smaller side room. It's much more intimate and quiet in this area. The larger room can be quite noisy and difficult to hear your date. I would definitely recommend, if you're looking for a quiet date, to request the side room. The service was great and the waiter attentive.

    The menu wasn't as impressive as the prices would lead you to believe it was. Aside from the live music (which was an interesting, although maybe out of place, touch), the atmosphere seemed a little disjointed to me. Dessert was great. All things considered, though, we should have walked on through to the Monk Bar (mmmm, duck fat fries!).

    We were disappointed with our experience. This was our first time at Bastone. I had the Fillet and it was dry. The Potatoes and veggies were very greasy. Crab cakes, 3 sausage appetizers and dessert were great. Our waitress was a bit of a ding bat. We would eventually get what we asked for but not right away, after that particular course was over.. We had to constantly be reminding her. There were very few people in the place and the dinner took forever. We would probably not go back.

    I love Bastones! The food is great! I just always have slow service. I think its because they have to few wait staff. I see the wait staff running around and having way too many tables so it takes forever to get served. However I love the food and beer selection! I went there right after my boyfriend proposed...and he knew he had to take me to my favorite restaurant! The brewery steak sandwich is to die for. Plus the mac and cheese and filet migonettes. I havent had a bad meal there!

    We went to Bastone for my birthday dinner and the two of us couldn't get enough of the Mammoet sauce, which was to die for. I also had their Triple, which was delicious, as well as the Potato Leek Soup which was equally as good. The fries were definitely the stars of the night. Just wish there were Liege waffles on the menu and everything would've been perfect. But for a Belgian food lover in the US, this was great.

    Even w/ reservations we still had to wait, but without them the wait would have been closer to 1 hour not 10 mins. The menu isn't extensive but has something for almost everyone on it. Had artichoke fritters (so-so), Leuven waffle (decent, but probably won't get again - it was missing something & the sauce was a bit sweet) & scallops (cooked perfectly & very good - would get again). The wine selection while limited (to be expected for a brew pub) is nice and mainly European which is what we prefer. The beer was good & true to style. This place would be good for both a group (get a table) and a romantic date (get a booth). Looking forward to visiting again.
