Northwest
Bake's Place is a restaurant & live music venue that oozes atmosphere. A chef driven seasonal menu that utilizes the best of the Northwest bounty and a well curated spirits & wine program that includes over 170 bourbons and whiskies are just the tip of the iceberg.
While hospitality is the focal point at Bake’s, we also keep the atmosphere hopping with live music performances with top Northwest musicians and special sporting events on our 24’ by 14’ HD screen. Our 3500 square foot patio, the largest in downtown Bellevue, is the perfect hideaway during summer months. Our unique atmosphere and facilities provide the perfect space for private events and company parties.
Whether meeting a colleague for lunch, relaxing with friends for drinks and a meal after work or dropping in for a glass of wine and a late-night nibble, you can always count on outstanding cuisine, exceptional service and careful attention to every little detail. We look forward to seeing you soon.

I was pleasantly surprised that there is such an amazingly beautiful dinner/entertainment experience nestled in the heart of Bellevue. Easy access off the freeway, lots of parking, affordable, friendly and fun!!! It was so nice not having to go into Seattle. Chris - one of the owners, was amazing and very accommodating at all times, food was delicious and the entertainment had us rocking all night! I would recommend to all! 10 out of 10!!!

We were disappointed that the full menu is no longer available on a Saturday night. The abbreviated "show menu" choices are too limited (no scallops, duck, caesar salad), and most entrees either had chili peppers / chimichurri / curry in the ingredients, which not everyone can tolerate. Bring back the full menu please!

We went for the Whiskey tasting, which was good. Bakes had a representative from the featured distillery who provided the backstory to this new branded Whiskey and its parent company. We enjoyed the tasting, the information, and as always, the food and live music.

So happy to have found you. We enjoy Jazz Alley in Seattle but really don't like coming into the city so now we just have to go to Bellevue. Food and service were outstanding. We'll be back.

Amazing! Not crowded at all. Two Tone Blues featuring Tommy Wall were performing. They have a soulful and powerful voice and were playing their guitars phenomenally. The staff was very attentive. We enjoyed our evening here relaxing on our drinks, relishing the delicious small plates of food, and listening to outstanding blues music.

We've always had a great time at Bake's Place! When they said we were part of Bake's record crowds to see our great friends, Heart by Heart, and hang out with them after the second show...more icing on the Heart-shaped cake!!

We ❤️ Bake’s Place, however when we pay for a concert we want to listen to the music. Unfortunately other guests think that talking over the performers (really loudly) is okay. People, go to a coffee shop or bar to talk, not a music venue!!!!

The ambiance can't be beat, especially in the spring and summer when you can be outside on the patio. We love the live music and variety of talent they have in. The food is it and miss. Sometimes everything is amazing, and then there are certain nights that every one at the table is less that impressed (and we are generally very easy to please). The service has always been great. The manager, owners and wait staff are always very friendly and helpful. We really really like this place.

It was my second time here this time with four girlfriends for a birthday. I ordered the crispy garlic chicken again I had it the first time and it was so good. I'm also low carb person so I asked for no carrots I should have said no potatoes too but it was nice having the broccoli in the chicken is so good. All the girls at my table ended up ordering the same thing we loved it. The music was good we laughed a lot we had great service. Can't wait to come back.

Great show with a great band.. It would be awesome to have whoever is doing the band introduction to remind people to keep their table conversations to a minimum while the musicians are performing.. The table next to us didn't shut the hell up the whole show. They should've just stayed home.

band was awesome, food was killer. Great vibe at Bake's Place. We'll be back.

We had a blast. The food was excellent though expensive. The music provided by Doctor Funk was excellent and worth the cover charge. We truly had a good time. The service was adequate in that we were served quick enough though the waiter didn't come around often. Due to the high price of drinks, that was probably a good thing as the meal for two (burger & fries and salad for my wife) was over fifty bucks .. oh and one glass of wine and one drink too (house not brand) with tip over seventy bucks .. not something I'd do often but the food was excellent. So for a nice night out with minimal food and drink and great entertainment well over a hundred bucks. For many this is probably just fine. For my pocket book a little above my level but for a special occasion I'm sure it's worth it. Had we chose a 'real' meal and desert it likely would have been closer to a couple of hundred bucks, certainly not in my price range but for those who have deep pockets, I'm sure you'd enjoy Bake's. The only real complaint was the volume of chatter. My wife and I were unable to carry on a conversation. We texted each other ... :(. Still .. A fine night out.

The food was diversified and good. Service was kind of slow toward the middle of the evening and especially when trying to get a check--still didn't have one even after the music ended--had to run down the waiter. The music was excellent!

We were there to see a band. When we go we typically have dinner before the show. On this night, there was a truncated show menu available which was a subset of the standard menu. We ordered appetizers, drinks, and entrees. The drinks were well made, the food not so much but it was consistent with our prior visits, average selection, average preparation. The service was inattentive at best, may have been a new person. My advice is go for the music and the booze, there are many better choices for food.

We saw Kalimba, The Spirit of Earth Wind and Fire and they were fantastic. The club is the perfect size—not a bad table in the place and the acoustics are good. Highly recommend.

The food was fabulous: Brussels sprouts for an appetizer (shared) and Chilean sea bass for the main course. For dessert we shared a Grand Mariner creme brûlée. We went for the food, not knowing that it is a performance venue with a stage. We were dubious about the noise level as we wanted to talk and decided if there were too much noise, we would leave, but the duo that played that night played soft rock and it was lovely (Simon & Garfunkel, Beatles, etc.). We stayed for the whole first set. I would definitely come again!
