First time dining at Bastien’s, a wonderful supper club vibe. The sugar rubbed steak was delicious! Salads were ample and the dressing choices were very tasty. Our waitress was great in making suggestions for our first visit. Would definitely return!

Always a great atmosphere at Bastien’s. Waitress was very outgoing and offered plenty of advice. Strip steak, filet and pork chops were all excellent.

We went to Bastien's for our anniversary and it was perfect. They had put some streamers on our table and made our night feel really special. We had the steak David and the bacon wrapped Filet and both were cooked to perfection with the special mashed potatoes. We have been going to this place for many years and will continue to make the trip.

Looked like a diner but once inside it is a nice place. The food was delicious and nothing was bad at all. Our server, Jeannine, was excellent. She was personable and funny. We will definitely be going back soon.

I loved everything about Bastien’s — food quality, price, presentation, service, ambience, location, wine list and drinks selection, small shooters for dessert, steaks done exactly as we ordered. We will definitely be back!

Perfect ambiance for a Friday date night. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and she checked in on us often. The steaks were great, and I loved the grilled caesar salad and potatoes. We will go back again!

The food was good. The first impression of the host was that we were an inconvenience for him, but was better when he sat us and even made a joke. Service was ok. My drinks were refilled without having to ask but we had to ask twice before receiving additional bread.

We love Basteins and go there frequently, even though it is not close to our home.
Another great evening
Sausage soup, grilled romaine ceasar salad, caprese salad, Weiner snitzel, sugar burger, Boston cream pie and Brandy Alexander made with ice cream were all outstanding
Service was top notch

With so many trendy and chain restaurants taking over, it's nice to have a neighborhood restaurant that still serves excellent food that is sophisticated but without the pretense or need to be, well, trendy.

Love this place. From the unique structure to the delicious food, it's a great place for steak.

This restaurant was excellent! The food was very good, went for the sugar steak and was rather impressed!

I loved the ambiance. It had that old school cool vibe that simply added further to the overall charm. I felt like Joe Pesci or Rob DeNiro were going to round the corner at any point!

We discovered Bastien's about 3 years ago and have been there about a dozen times since. The service is always great, the food always great, the servings are generous, the house made bleu cheese dressing is fantastic, a couple of times we have called the day before and they make us a pint to buy and take home (ya, it's that good). We love Bastien's. Although, last week we were there and their delicious bread was replaced w/ biscuits, really good, but sometimes you just want great bread.

Bastien’s is our go to steak house in Denver. Their cuisine will stack up against Sullivan’s, Elway’s, or Shanahan’s. They just refreshed their menu and I can’t wait to get back and try some more!

Bastien's is one of my favorite dining venues for very special occasions with family and close friends. Always wonderful steaks, yummy appetizers, impeccable service. The price point easy on the pocketbook when one considers the quality of the food, the array of choices and the exceptionally attentive service.

This was the second time my wife and I dined at Bastien's. The first time we had been given a gift card by good friends who thought we would enjoy the experience and we did. Our most recent visit was to celebrate our recent 29th wedding anniversary and we were again very pleased. Love the atmosphere, food and service.

Best Steak house in Denver! The ambiance is very retro and unique. If you like martini's, the Rat Pack and amazing steak at a reasonable price, then this is your place. I love that it's family-owned and just about everyone who works there is a family member. They also have the best cheesecake!

Very standard American fare - wasn’t bad, but was super over priced. But the dining room was full and all the older customers seemed to be enjoying the trip down memory lane. The decor was worth checking out - looks like something straight out of the ‘70’s
