The band was phenomenal!
The food was fabulous! Something for everyone.
The service was great - the only thing that was not stellar was when we left to dance they cleaned the service team table scooped up the food and I would have preferred to have it boxed up. While I do love me a clean table it was a bit disappointing. And later I had just a sip or two left of my drink it too was cleaned. It was a "neat" drink and I imagine didn't look like much but I was certainly confused, when we came back to only waters at the table. We were sitting in the bar. While I like the team support of their service (and they are all friendly and professional) I didn't seem to have a good to person.
We will be back. Cheers!

We truly enjoyed our evening at Bake's Place! The performer, Brittany Jean, was glorious. The outside seating was exceptional. The weather perfect. The noise from the nearby office party was distracting, but that was no one's fault but the self-involved attendees. They couldn't spoil our fun.

I took a date to Bakes. She had English as a third language, so the ability to hear each other was important. We arrived unfashionably early for dinner, and the noise level was very good. But as the day wore on, the number of occupied tables increased, and the number of conversations expanded, so by 7:30, volumes increased to levels that made conversation quite difficult, but that was in part due to the language issue.
As to the food, the pork tenderloin was tender and tasty, with a bit of sauce the really enhanced it. The asparagus was nicely cooked. Overall, my dinner was commendable. My date had a Caesar with grilled chicken, which she liked, but didn't rave about. It looked and smelled good to me, and I could hear the greens being crunched, so the freshness was audible . The libation list was extensive and impressive, and included a number of aperitifs and liqueurs, some of which were tempting. But we settled for a a bottle of wine. I was disappointed that they didn't have my favorite single-malt, but it is hard to find so it was no surprise. But their list of available whiskeys is impressive. As to the service, it was cordial but not familiar, efficient without hovering, and generally very acceptable. All in all, it was one of the superior overall experiences in dining that I've had over the past year. Lastly, the ambiance was generally attractive and comfortable, but mostly hard surfaces, to don't expect any hushed experience. I expect to return, but later in the day so the live entertainment can be enjoyed.

We decided to visit Bake's Place for our 53rd anniversary because their scheduled entertainment was better than the act featured at Triple Door, the other venue we were considering. When we arrived, the dining room was empty, the stage was empty and all patrons were seated outside on the patio.

Explanations for the lack of entertainment ranged from "We never have music on Monday" through "That act played last Monday" to "There was a family emergency and they had to cancel". Nobody really knew.

If there really was a cancellation for cause, we would have greatly appreciated a 'heads-up'. Right up to the moment we left for dinner, their monthly calendar continued to show the act we had come to see.

Bake's place reminds me of a smaller version of Jazz Alley in Seattle. Great place to see music - sight lines, acoustics, ambience, etc. Waitstaff was friendly and attentive. We requested additional drinks for the start of the music and that is exactly what happened. The food was the "show menu" - a more limited offering during show times due to the kitchen getting slammed prior to performances. Some reasonably priced food was still available on that menu. Can't say enough good things about our first experience there. Almost forgot - they have a great patio set up where you can still see and hear the music too!

Perfect venue to hear live music. The sound mixing on Friday's band (Moondance -Van Morrison Tribute Band) was outstanding. Every instrument came through clearly, as well as the vocals. The place was full, and everyone had a great time. Suggestion: I recommend the Peruvian Viking cocktail.

Know about the 16$ cover in advance.
Food is OK : one vegetarian choice.
Place has a fun, young (albeit loud) vibe.
Outdoor area looks great : will sit there next time.

Fine, small music/food club on Seattle's Eastside. The food was better than expected, especially the cauliflower appetizer. The music was live and featured a Creedence Clearwater Revival band from Vancouver BC. The audience was dancing, enthusiastic, and welcoming. Made for an evening to remember!

We love Bake’s Place, especially First Friday Blues with The Mark DuFresne Band.
The service and cuisine is impeccable. We always find something new to sample and are never disappointed.

Our table of 6 had mostly drinks and appetizers. The drinks were good but very pricey. The food was average; nothing I would say was a stand-out or unique. The servers were very good - they checked on us often. We were on the patio and loved it - a lovely outdoor atmosphere on a beautiful summer evening. Couldn't even tell that we were on a busy main street. We came to see a friend sing so of course the music was outstanding. This is a fun venue to come to in the warm weather. The inside looked lovely but I'm a sucker for a great patio!

Perfect place to sit outside and enjoy the nice weather. Yard games available on the green and a nice out of the way table for more quiet conversation. We'll come back again.

I had book this as a special evening and made note in my reservation that it was my wife’s birthday. I have been to Bakes several times and the service and attentiveness was the worst I have ever had. There was no mention of my wife’s birthday and we had to constantly float down our server for napkins, silverware, drink orders, food. Even had to ask twice for the check. We were so looking forward to the evening and left early because the evening was such a disappointment. We wanted to order dessert but we were having to wait so long we just said forget it and left. So disappointed that no one ever looked at the reservation or paid any attention to the specialness of the evening.

We actually had a party of 10 (2reservation) two tables next to each other, in-laws /parents at one table children at other table, all children over 40 😬 worked out beautiful! We sat at outside patio but unfortunately I got chilled to quickly. Our Server was great!! Menu had good selections for me being GF. Music was the best! First time at “Bake”, can’t wait to visit again.

The band was good, the venue itself is great but the service was poor. The server did not come back and check on us, did not bring what we asked for, and had to be flagged down several times even though they were standing by the bar doing nothing.

Mark Dufresne Band was great. Thoroughly enjoyed them. The Manager was very accommodating and even helped out on the floor with service. Our waiter was very nice and friendly. He could have checked back more often to see if we needed anything. Food was ok. The hummous was bland, but the Thai Chicken wings were really tasty. French fries could have been crispier. Little soggy. Overall I really like Bake's for an intimate place to hear good music and have food and drinks at the same time. Acoustics are very good.

The dinner reservation was scheduled for a Birthday. The wait staff acknowledged it was a birthday dinner, however...nothing came in the way of cake or candle. We would have paid for it, had there been an acknowledgment. Thank you!
