neat little piece of Denver
Such a fun experience - cool drinks, neat decor in a unique building; the sugar steak is a must have! This would be a great place for a birthday or other celebration - just something special and different.

Bastiens has a charming, vintage feel to it. The food was phenomenal, the service was excellent, and the cocktail selection was impressive and spot on. I would suggest this restaurant to anyone.

What can you say about an
What can you say about an independant steak house that has been in business at the same location for over 40 years? If it wasn't consistently good, it would not still be there.
And, for those of us who grew up in the 60's, it brings back fond memories.

The staff was super friendly and the food top notch. I think the sugar steak was the best steak I've had in Denver and I have been too most of the steakhouses around. Dessert if fantastic too. Its a true Gem. The open table reservation system worked real well too. I will go back for sure.

Give me some of that sugar.
The go to dish here is the specialty of the house - Sugar Steak - it is delicious! Need I say more. The sides are average but the steak is unique and worth the trip for you steak lovers. Atmosphere is 1950's original.

Retro Night Out
I have been told about this place for years and I finally had an occasion to go. This is a real steak house with real people. Meaning you actually get a meal here not just a steak and order everything else on the side. The food was wonderful, and service was fantastic. This is a real steak house with real people.

a great place to celebrate
Went with friends and all four of us ordered steak. My choice of the 16oz. sugar steak was spot on. Cooked perfectly, tender, and flavorful. Our server was excellent. It was rather loud in the dining room but the amazing food and good company made up for it. I'll definitely return for special occasions.

It doesn't look fancy on the outside, but the food is great and the service was impeccable. Looking forward to going back!

Great retro steakhouse
Have enjoyed the sugar steak in the past so for a change decided to try the Black and Tan NY steak (topped with melted gorgonzola and sliced mushrooms) and it was divine. Others in my party enjoyed the Lala's steak which comes with some spicy peppers and beef stroganoff which had very tender tenderloin in a delicious sauce. Twice baked potatoes were great. Casual and comfortable ambience, very reasonably priced.

Very Happy Birthday
I chose Bastien's for my wife's birthday dinner the experience couldn't have been better. Our table was decorated when we arrived the service was warm and professional and very patient the cocktails I were very generous pours. Our meals were outstanding, steaks cooked to perfection and presentation on every plate very enticing. The birthday cheese cake with happy birthday in chocolate was an awesome surprise.

Retro ambience, great food!
We've driven by here 100's of times but finally stopped in last Sat. after Cirque du Soleil early perf. Retro lovely (the real thing) ambience: many small pretty lights, table candles + real rose bowls. Great service & exellent menu. Darlin' hubby's only complaint on the stroganoff: too many noodles for the amount of meat/other stuff, but very good nonetheless. I had the small "sugar steak"; it had super flavor & very tender. Sides were very nice too. Dessert was superb (pies are to-die-for, I couldn't resist even tho stuffed! ;) If you've lived here a while, you MUST make this a stop very soon, b/c you won't be disappointed; if you've lived here a short time, find out why Denver has always been considered a steak town.

I took a friend to thank her for doing me a favor. The moment we walked in her eyes teared up and she began sharing memories of a bygone era filled with daring romance and youth. She met her now late husband at a place like Bastien's...and since his name was Frank, the decor, the foods, the music made a special evening for her..with all the memorabilia of the brat pack's Frank Sinatra. We wouldn't have been surprised to see them at a piano. Excellent food and service. Will definitely return to try other menu options. We both had the Signature Steak...wow.

Wonderful every time
We love this place. A true neighborhood gem. The food is always amazing.

A wonderful dining experience
The dining room is quiet with pleasant music in the background so conversation is possible. The 16oz New York Strip stake (sugar steak) is generous but well advised for wonderful leftovers the next day. The minestrone soup was delicious. Entree served with vegetables. The owner was our waitperson and was delightful. We all agreed we shall return again soon!

I am 66 years old and went to Bastien's for my High School Homecoming.
It is as good now as it was then.
Highly recommended after all these years!

What a surprise!
A great friend of mine took me to dinner, as we pulled up outside I would have NEVER known that we were going to have such a fabulous meal with a nice looking dining area. The outside is rather dated looking however it sticks true to the era it was built. The inside is completely different and the food is simply AMAZING! Their steaks are right on! You can not go wrong! I did not try the sugar steak but my friend assures me that it is just to die for!
The only thing I wont recommend is their cosmo's.. I am not sure if it was the acidity in the drink mixing poorly with the metal, yes metal martini glass or it was just not well made but it was not something I will try again.

NOSTALGIC AND STEAK PERFECTION
As a Denver native I very much enjoy going to Bastien's (an old high school homecoming choice for me and my friends). The steaks are prepared perfectly as well as everything to go with them. This is our favorite place! Kathie Bahl

I love Bastien's! I have been here many times now and have always loved the food and service. The steaks are delicious - and we've tried several. Equally delicious are many of their appetizers to include the rizotto fritters, stuffed mushrooms, and garlic cheese bread.
The inside is very cute - candelit and perfect for dates. The prices are incredibly reasonable for a steak dinner which includes soup or salad and your choice of potato for around $22-30.

Relaxing yet Exciting
It's a magical experience to eat at Bastien's. They make even the most ordinary food (like grilled vegetables) taste heavenly. And the filet mignon is delicious. But the specialty, the "sugar steak," is to die for.

Th s is the place for steaks
Bastien's steaks are amazing. They have the feel and quality of traditional steak houses, but the menu is creative making it feel very modern. There was a HUGE party the night we went, but we still had great service and it was surprisingly quiet even though the upstairs was full (including many babies). We will be back. This place is worth every penny. If you want steak, this is the place.

Great Retro Family Place
This place has a very retro feel and it is family owned and operated. Service was meticulous and attentive. The Duck drummettes appetizer is fabulous, and they are famous for their escargot. We enjoyed it.
