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.
I love the ambience & food at Bastien's. Definitely a Denver gem of a steakhouse!!
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.
Everything was delicious...from the starter salad to sugar steak and yummy creme brulee. All yummy!
Always a treat to walk into a retro restaurant. The food is not retro. The food is outstanding and the prices are more than reasonable. Do it!!
LOVE Bastien's!! Found them on GroupOn about 2 years ago and we consistently go back for special occasions, end of week relaxation and casual night out with GREAT food and drink!
The waitress wasn't very engaging and it took forever to get the bill but the food compensated.
Classic steakhouse. Every bite was delicious, portions were generous, ambiance was retro with feeling overly dated. Exceeded my expectations. Definitely will go back for special occasions or date night
Food and atmosphere was great, I will return and it was very relaxing to listen to Frank Sinatra, the service could have been a lot better if the waitress was not rushing us to order. She was very rude and kept coming back to see if we were ready to order. We had an early reservstion just so we could take our time, and there was no need for the rush because there were very few people in the restaurant.
We were late getting there due to traffic from the Parade of Lights but manager was very gracious and found a way to squeeze us in.
Great food - tried some new dishes this time and they were just as good as our normal dished we get - the Steak David/Black and Tan and the bacon wrapped filet.
I had the Tournedos, very yummy...when (not if) I return some day, I am ordering this again. Hubby tried the Sugar Stake, touted as a favorite..while he really liked it, he states that he'll be ordering the Tournedos, next visit.
Enjoyed very much and the food was spectacular!
Enjoyed my dinner with my father however the hostess at the front didn’t want to give us a booth because it wasn’t that servers time to be sat a table. Then when we asked for a liquor to be put in the coffee afterwards we had to pull out of the server what kinds they had. She wasn’t knowledgable or helpful.
Great service, delicious food and wonderful ambience. The jazzy crooning of Sinatra, Bublé and Harry Connick Jr in the background was loud enough to be enjoyed and quiet enough to hold a conversation over.
