    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.

    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.
