We went here for Mother's day brunch at 10am. I was very disappointed with the level of service and the quality of the food. Our server wanted to be somewhere else than there. She was not very attentive to what she was there for. All she had to do was refill our coffee mugs and clean out the used plates and she didn't even do a good job of that. Plates piled up on our table and she was behind on coffee refills. When they ran out of clean plates by the macaroni salad, I had to mention it to the hostess. A few minutes later there was a stack of plates brought out and they were all dirty. It looked like someone had picked up a stack of plates that were partly cleaned. Disgusting! On the food, some of the items (both chicken dishes, salmon, gravy) were close to room temps. I expected them to be hot. You could tell they had been sitting there for quite some time before opening the doors. Taste was just okay. Didn't go back for seconds on the main dishes. I opted to stick with the French toast. Lastly, I heard Bastone is closing its doors for good. Probably explains the attitude of all the people working there. Even on our way out, there was no thank you from the hostess. Everyone seemed disinterested to work there. So sad.

We enjoyed a good dinner at Bastone. The wine selection is nicely varied even though the emphasis here is on beer. Our meal ran about 74.00 with three glasses of wine, one coffee, and generous tip. Reservations are recommended for a Saturday night and a Saturday night can be a bit noisy. Our waiter was quite pleasant and attentive.

Overall it was a nice evening and we will return.

This was the worst restaurant experience I've had in many years. Nobody at our table of 4 enjoyed their meals and the service was horrific! My filet mignon came well done when I asked for it medium rare. They butterfly their filet mignons, but it doesn't warn you about that on the menu. Worst steak ever! The server (GiGi) couldn't have cared less about service or fixing numerous problems. Find somewhere else to go while in Royal Oak

We had been at bastone before for a big party, today we wanted to come back for a dinner for two. First off I want to start by saying our waitress was fabulous, happy enteric checked in us frequently. With that being said I think the kitchen was off their game that night. I ordered the bastone steal sandwich, which I have had previously. The meal came with fries which appeared to be the end if the batch (short fries with lots of burnt pieces) the steak was 50% gristle and tough (being medium), I had a hard time cutting through it. The potato pancakes were underdone and cold. I was super disappointed considering had had this meal previously and it was really good.

We were seated right away, however took 45 min to PLACE a drink order. At this time we also placed food and appetizer order as we had a show to get to. The waiter was very apologetic but service was slow. Took another 15 to get our drinks. So after an hour an 20 min we only had one round of drinks and had to cancel our food order or we would've missed the show.

Food was good overall and good prices. We were sitting drinking beers and watching the basketball games while the servers were behind us talking loudly how we are just sitting taking up space and wished we would just leave. There were MANY other empty tables available so thought that was very rude.

When we walked in to the restaurant the two hostesses wouldn't stop giggling and staring at my boyfriend and I. She recalled who we were because we were just in on Saturday. I was very offended that two people who are supposed to greet your customers and make them feel welcome were staring right at me talking about me. We are regular customers at Batstone and now I'm not so sure I want to go back.

It appears that they changed their menu, no more steak frite or salad nicoise. Waitress told us we could still get steak frite, but it was just a regular filet. Waitress disappeared near the end, we had to eventually track her down to get our bill.

We used to love going there, now, not so much.

This was my first time there, so I will Leave a more comprehensive review after my next time or two. I ordered the Monte Cristo for lunch. I have pre-conceived notions of what a Monte Cristo is and this was not it. It was good, but not what I tend to get when I order an MC. The fries with dipping sauces were awesome! I could make a meal off of those alone.

This place hits all the marks. Good food, great atmosphere, cool decor, and great beers! We made reservations for seven at 7:45 on a Saturday. We got there about an hour early to relax and grab a few drinks. Well to our surprise, after about 10 minutes they got us a table. My only issue (and its minor), was the food presentation was mediocre. My fries were sort of thrown on the plate as was my wifes. Didn't matter much since the food was very tasty and priced reasonable.

Service was slow. I made reservations days in advance for 7 people, they seated us at a table for 6, so the 6th person stood there until a chair was brought over, plus one of the other chairs were broken. Their were several people that came to take our drink order, the order took a long time. The waiter didn't ask us for our food order for 45 minutes. As I sat there trying to wave him down every time he got close, we would be ignored. I think he only had 5 tables to serve. Finally one of the girls in our party went up to the front desk to get someone to take our order. The food was good.

Loved it that open table was available for this restaurant. Especially for a large group. However I ordered a burger medium rare, and got a well done. I asked for substituted vegetables, and got almost all carrots, versus a variety of vegetables. The other eight at our party said their food was pretty good though. So I definitely would go back. To try something else. Service was great, and the wine list had something for everyone.

This was a birthday party reservation.

Nicely enough, I reserved 8 spots for 7 confirmed friends and myself instead of reserving extra seats. "yes, I was thoughtful". As I arrived to the restaurant, a 9th friend calls me and informs me he will be joining as well.

I walked up to the host (Night of 2/11) and requested an extra chair. THE HOST was super defensive and did not suggest any help. I walked back thinking to myself, "great deal this extra chair". I came up to her again and requested some solution for this, she suggested the last person sits at the bar when our table was in the back "thanks that was very helpful" and I walked away.

Finally, our waiter was nice and called the manager without us requesting for him, and he kindly helped us squeeze a chair in.

Bottom line, a host should be welcoming, helpful and suggestive, not drawing lines in the ground and offering NO possible solutions. We were seriously considering to leave to another place.

Although the night kicked off with a bit of a bitter experience, everything else was great. We loved our waiter and food. I don't recall her name but she was wearing Pink and she was very nice to us.

The only food I found not okay was the calamari appetizer. Its supposed to be appeting, however, it was super salty. It felt like I was eating Salt Powers.

Thank you for the birthday chocolate truffle cake it was amazing and probably the best in town... I called it "mouthgasm".





Thank you.

Hostess and waitress were unfriendly; hamburger was raw and even after it was sent back, it was still came back no where near the medium I asked for (waitress did not as how I wanted it cooked); kids mac and cheese was very bland and we couldn't even taste the cheese (how do you mess up macncheese?)(waitress didn't seem to notice or care that the entire entree was remaining); calamari was good but over salted. Overall very disappointing. Don't plan to return.

Great French Fries....that's about it. One of the worst waitresses I've ever had at a "nicer" restaurant.... she did not go over the brewery's beer list at all, never even told us about the specials for the evening until I said that I couldn't find a certain steak dish on the menu..... I ordered the Walleye and sent it back after first 3 bites ALL had bones in them..... When she dropped off the charcuterie board, she did not bother to say what was actually ON the board!!! Disappointed, won't be back
