It is unfortunate that I'm writing this review. This has always been one of our favorite places to eat. In fact, I proposed to my wife here about 8 years ago. We visited for Valentines Day (a few days after on a Saturday). When we showed we had to wait 20 minutes even though we had reservations. Once we sat we ordered a bottle of wine. Ended up being a cheap headache rather than a decent wine. Found the same bottle we paid $35 for at a store for under $10. We had what was supposed to be French onion soup. After 2 bites we were both done. My wife ordered her go-to Filet. It was the first time I'd ever seen a cut of meat so over cooked on the outer part and under cooked in the middle. And not one drop of juice from the steak, was on my wife's plate. It was terrible! I ordered a NY Strip which was about the same.

We've been to a lot of very good Steak Houses and this used to be one. Now we say goodbye as we will never eat here again. To top it all off, the service was mediocre at best. The waitress asked us if we wanted a box when she saw only half of our food was eaten. We sternly said NO. She didn't even bother to ask us how it was (I think she was very aware).

I will no longer recommend that anyone waste their time unless your food standards are at the McDonalds level!

Got a party of seven reservations on a short notice and the table was ready when we arrived. The food and service was great and everyone had a great time.

Was really hoping/expecting to enjoy Bastien’s given its longevity in the neighborhood and how difficult it is to get a table. Perhaps this was an off night. On the positive we enjoyed the ambience and the service was very good. However there were a number of issues, each on their own would have been no big deal, but taken together made for a disappointing experience. First I ordered a red wine by the glass to be told after order was placed that they were out of stock. Ordered a different wine to be told again that they were out of stock of that one as well due to the California wildfires (I ordered a French wine so that explanation was specious). The mussels appetizer was not tasty. Finally, my steak came out luke warm. At that juncture I didn’t have the patience to send it back as I had given up on salvaging the meal.

The food is always very tasty, but a bit expensive and as it was our anniversary we didn't mind it.

We've been here before and loved the food. This time the service was horrendous. Our server didn't seem to care about our table but rather her other tables instead. It was our anniversary and I wish the service was better to set the tone for the rest of our evening. Order came out wrong but server never came back to check on us for the order to be corrected. Once we were done eating, we waited for the server to ask about dessert but it took 30 minutes to get her attention so instead we called it a night. However, once we declined dessert she forgot about us all together and we waited another 20 minutes before making eye contact and asked her to bring our check. Highly disappointed.

Great first time experience. I would have loved to hear more about the history /back story. Food was amazing waitress was perfect with timing each entree. I left full but not in pain full. Can't wait to go back.

Bastiens is a gem of a restaurant with 4 star quality food in a casual relaxed setting that feels like home.
