    We've been to Bastone before and decided to go there again with another couple who hadn't been there. The beer selection is great. We didn't know what to choose so our server asked us quesitons about what we like and made several suggestions, which turned out perfect. We had a hard time choosing what to have for dinner because the menu has so many delicious-looking items. But we were all happy with what we chose. We'll definately be back!

    Were sat at the table by the door on a cold night. No heater vents over that table - poor engineering. Macaroni was not flavorful. My mom liked the quiche appetizer. Moderate selection of microbrews that were just okay. Had more wine than beer, from what I could tell, which is strange for a brewery. Hard to read the menu because it was very dimly lit. Waiter did not refill water and he stopped by within 1 minute of someone else delivering our food. Didn't come back until we requested the check

    We took our family for a birthday celebration..............we were generally disappointed in about everything. First...a warm martini up (do you have to tell the bartender you want it shaken on ice? The service was as luke-warm as the food.....sub par. It used to be one of my favorites.............Bad enough that we may not give it another chance.

    Provides valet service during the week, none on Sunday when city parking is free. This is one of the considerations whenever I go to a restaurant in Royal Oak because of the time limits on the meters. Menu is eclectic and provides a good variety for all tastes. Everyone at the table loved the french fries with the assortment of dipping sauces. Two of us had the braised pork belly which was fatter than I have had other places. Accommodated one vegan with us, but does not have a vegan menu. Provided 4 separate checks for our party of 6 which was greatly appreciated.

    There are a lot of great beers on tap and a lot of great food to be had. My wife and I both ordered the beer sampler and steak frites, but I've had a few other things on the menu and haven't been disappointed.

    Bastone Brewery is our favorite for good beer and good food when we come to the East side of the state. Our visit Friday night, 11/7 did not disappoint. We used open table to reserve our table, and it all went well until we arrived and found they overbooked for the 6:30pm time slot, but thankfully we had our e-confirmation and the staff made it right and seated us right away.

    Both the beer and food at Bastone are nice. The service is okay. The place is loud - so if you want to be able to hear the people you're with, especially of on a date, ask for a booth. The bar area is actually quieter than the main dining area. Wine list is okay, but this is a brew pub so enjoy one of their unique brews. Have been several times. This time had the Nicoise salad. This was a good size and the tuna was seared as requested. Calamari was a bit on the small size and "soggy." Would skip this and get something else next time. Waffle dish was decent.

    We saw many servers, but they kept passing out table. Finally a server came up an asked if we had been served. This was after nearly 10 minutes. We were just getting ready to walk out. Seems like the servers like to talk amongst themselves, but don't do a good job of serving the diners.

    We had the frites and muscles for an appetizer, frites were very good, muscles OK. Should have been better for a Belgian restaurant. Dinners were good and wine selection adequate (it is a beer place). Went here before a concert for a quick dinner and it was what we were looking for and what we expected. I would go back. Do not expect an outstanding dining experience, just good food.

    Love Bastone. We typically visit several times a year. (Would likely go more often, if not for the atrocious Royal Oak parking). Always a great selection of house brewed beers, along with a diverse and creative menu. Seafood, beef or pasta, you can't go wrong. The mussels appetizer or the pommes frite with tarragon dipping sauce are a great start to the meal.

    The restaurant, which I've been to before, was nice. The Caesar salad with salmon was okay, nothing special, even though the hostess said it was to die for. The food was worse than the last time we were there. Our server was excellent, very attentive and he paid special attention to the "birthday girl", which was nice. He did a good job with a rather big group (12). There was a live band that started playing after we'd been there a while. They were good, but they were TOO LOUD! We could barely hear our conversations; we definitely could not hear from anyone at the opposite ends of our tables.

    We brought out of town relatives here for the beer- they love doing flights and trying new things. Overall, the ambience was fantastic and we had a great time. The food was nothing special- I was expecting a little better given the menu. I had the vegetarian pizza- very few veggies, not quite up to par. Still, it was edible, came quickly, and the beer was great.

    We've been here many times, but the Oktoberfest menu email was the purpose for our visit. I looked forward to the Chicken Paprish but at 8 pm on Friday night it was already sold out, I settled for the Lobster Mac & Cheese which is usually outstanding but seemed a bit bland last night. My husband had the Baked White Onion Soup, and the German Chocolate Sour Cream Cake from the Oktoberfest menu...both were awesome and would be great additions to the ongoing menu. He also had the Sauerbraten..ok but the flavor was quite different than other sauerbraten he's had. I also had the Green Salad from the regular menu with candied pecans and poached pears,,,,a real winner. Great evening, great atmosphere, great food...we'll continue to go back!

    Had the leek and potato soup. It was great! I should have ordered a second bowl. The flourless chocolate cake has been my favorite for several years now. Worth the trip just for that. Temperature in the restaurant was way too cold, though. I could have worn a jacket inside.

    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).
