This is our second trip to Bass Street and we absolutely loved it as much as the first. The food is absolutely to die for. The wait staff is very attentive and knowledgeable. They know their wine as well as their steaks. It is a high end steak house budget accordingly.

Service was great but food was marginal. Filet steaks looked grey and were not flavorful, even the bone in filet looked grey. Definitely not appetizing. Lobster bisque was a complete purée, no lobster bits and a strong sherry flavor. This visit was not worth the price. I could not recommend this restaurant based on this visit. Food was poor quality.

Unfortunately my wife and I didn't have a very good experience. Our food was marginal at best . Which surprised us because we have friends that say great things about it. My wife had the lobster bisque and tuna appetizer. Bisque looked and tasted like tomato soup. Just a slight hint of lobster. Tuna that was supposed to be shashimi grade was far from it. I had the fillet. Although it looked nice and was cooked the way I prefer, it just lacked flavor. And was a little hard to chew. A good steak to me just melts in your mouth. I prefer mine very rare. Not to mention our waiter never asked how our food was. So chances are we won't be visiting again anytime soon.

The chopped salad with Salmon was very disappointing. There were very few vegetables and the piece of salmon was small. Very overpriced. Compared to the chopped salad with salmon at Tap 22 I would rate the Bass Street salad a distant 2nd. The fish in the fish and chips appeared to be purchased from a box and not prepared on site. We have dined here numerous times and have always been satisfied. This experience makes us wonder - what has changed?

We come to this restaurant whenever we are in town. The owners are always there which shows how much they care for their restaurant. We always ask for Larry to be our server. The food is outstanding. I try not to eat red meat, but almost always have a filet there. My family also loves the macaroni and cheese. The seafood is outstanding as well. I love the grilled asparagus. If you are up for an appetizer go for the calamari!!!

Bass St. offers excellent food and service. Whether it be a casual dinner, holiday brunch, business dinner, date-night, or special occasion Bass St. does an outstanding job in regards to the quality of food and impeccable service. I've frequented Bass St. for years and have always enjoyed my meals there. Managing Partner Jeff Harrop and his team do excellent work. I would recommend Bass St. to anyone and everyone!

Very good food. Service was amazing. Our server, Don H. did a fantastic job. He was attentive without being overbearing, served each course in a timely manner, was genuinely friendly, and had great recommendations. Try the appetizer bacon wrapped scallops-tasty. Ribeye was seasoned to perfection. Bass street punch was a drink favorite. We like the atmosphere.

We have been to Bass Street a number of times. The food was delicious, as usual. This was the first time, though, that our service was very good. In every previous visit, our service has been terribly slow, with excuse after excuse given as to why. We always believed that service at a restaurant of this caliber should be something that would not be an issue for diners. After a long break from dining here, we decided to try again. We were very pleased with our experience, and hope this means service issues have been eliminated. We plan to return in the future to see how things are going, and enjoy some more delicious food.

We dined here following a ceremony at St. Ambrose University. Our waiter was excellent, provided great guidance about the menu and the wines. The Risotto was more fishy than I would have liked. The texture was perfect. The beef selections were amazing, as was the lobster bisque. Salads were huge and very tasty. The pork chop was a it on the dry side. It was a good dining experience. It is somewhat noisy there, so harder to have a conversation for the people in our party who were hard of hearing.

My husband and I went to Bass Street for Easter Brunch. We have been to the restaurant one other time, so we were aware of how noisy it can be...they definitely need to address this some how...This was our first time for brunch. The food was good-$30 good-I'm not sure about that. The selection was minimal-3 salads placed at the end of the buffet line and 3 dessert options-brownies, muffins, pound cake at the beginning of the buffet line? The restaurant does not really lend itself to buffet serving-the line was very long and you stand among the tables of others eating...Our waiter was excellent-very attentive and personable.
