Opened in June of 2009 and housed in an historic 1920’s building in Seattle’s Old Ballard neighborhood, Bastille Café & Bar is a bustling homage to a Parisian brasserie. Owners Deming Maclise and James Weimann scoured Paris flea markets and local salvage stores for vintage accessories to create a truly authentic feel. From the white subway tiles, antique mirrors, and Paris Metro clock to the zinc-topped bar and stunning crystal chandelier that takes center stage in the Back Bar; they’ve truly hit the mark. Chef Jason Stoneburner creates French focused cuisine inspired by the abundance of seasonal product found locally---and it doesn’t get any more local than the restaurants 4500-square-foot organic rooftop garden. The wine list is French focused with a smattering of NW wines and the bar offers an extensive collection of absinthe.

It was our first time here and the food wasn’t excellent but it wasn’t terrible. My fiancé said his steak was kind of chewy even though he got it rare but other than that, no other complaints.

Our server was knowledgeable and was able to effectively read our body language, one of the best server experiences I’ve ever experienced. The atmosphere was a chic industrial, and there was a modded turn of the century oven (I believe) turned into a bussing station. The food was excellent, my girlfriend claimed to have had the best scallops dish there, as well as excellent whiskey cocktails. We will definitely come back for another date night down the road.

The wagu steak was outstanding and the artichoke salad was very creative and yummy. The French Onion soup was flavorful but a bit burned and overdone but still quite good. The service was great and the atmosphere was worth the limited parking.

We had a wonderful time that was shared with, I am sure, by most of the other dinners in the room.
Thank you for a fine meal and a relaxing atmosphere.

Server was arrogant and put off by a question regarding substitution of one part of the dish due to a food allergy. She did make an adjustment with the chef which was appreciated, but also expected, frankly. She was condescending to my guest who was visiting from France when he did not take her suggestion on temperature to cook his steak. The very expensive wine was wonderful but a different vintage was served than what was on the list. The sommelier was most gracious and handled that well. Food is so good, but this night the attitude of the server really left a "bad taste".

The food wasn’t very good. One person in our party didn’t eat her meal at all. Expensive and loud, I was embarrassed having recommended we go to our guests.
