Bavette's Ratings and Reviews
Took my husband out for Valentines Day. Really loved the food and wine. We started with Shrimp Dijon. Husband had Dry Aged Ribeye. I had pork chop - best one I’ve ever had... better than recent ones at Ditka’s and Perry’s. Loved the Rignana Chianti. My biggest issue is the lightning. Literally unable to read menu at bar and at the table. I’m not that old and seems like an easy fix. Either make the font bigger and bolder... or turn up the lights.
Really well made food! The gold brick chocolate was outstanding! Bone in filet cooked to perfection. My boyfriend wanted to share his meal with me but he eats his steak rare while I prefer med well. They cut off a piece fir me, sent it back and cooked it to literal perfection. It was heavenly!
Service was good and ambiance is romantic! However, my filet was over cooked and had to send it back to the kitchen. The server was very apologetic and agreed the kitchen had over cooked it. The Rye Old Fashion cocktail was delicious but served with too much ice, and had to pick the ice out of my glass. I mentioned it to the server but when we ordered our second one it still had a lot of ice. Perhaps it slipped his mind?!
We went to Bavette's for an early Valentines Day and were not disappointed! We had an 8:15pm reservation and were seated around 8:35pm. We didn't mind the 20 min wait as they have a small seating area where you can order a drink while you wait.
Food: Ordered the 6 oz and 10 oz filets with mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts on the side. Everything was cooked exactly how we ordered and the sides were huge! One side can definitely feed 3-4 people. The house made sour dough bread was also AMAZING. I would have ordered seconds if we didn't have a large meal coming.
Ambiance: It is DARK in here. I'm not sure if I would recommend to an "older" crowd as it took a little while for our eyes to adjust. However, we did not mind as it had a romantic and special occasion vibe that we were looking for.
Service: Our server, James, was attentive and knowledgeable without making us feel rushed or bothered. As it was a special occasion, we did have a very long meal enjoying our drinks and appreciated not feeling like we were being rushed out.
Bavette's remains my all time favorite restaurant in the city. i have been there three times and i am always so impressed with the delicious food, beautiful lighting, romantic atomsphere, and excellent service. i can actually say that i loved every single bite of my meal, from the perfectly sized piece of bread and butrer, to the most amazing lemon meringue pie i have ever had. A++++
Amazing experience! Went to celebrate my steak-loving boyfriend's birthday (even though I am a pescatarian!) and we both absolutely loved it. Service was very good, the food even better, and we loved the BYOB policy (it's free as long as you share a glass of wine with another table).
Highly recommend!! This will definitely be our special occasion spot moving forward.
The restaurant's atmosphere is pretty cool - but different upstairs from downstairs. We were seated downstairs and it was more intimate and quiet, whereas upstairs seemed to be more boisterous. The food was delicious and the portions were absolutely share-able. Our waiter, Claus, was a sweetheart!
Every single thing we ate was incredible and met the high expectations we had for the restaurant. Daniel was one of the better servers I have ever had and definitely helped us get the most out of the experience. Our meal was surprisingly less expensive than we anticipated.
Excellent service from every single member of this restaurant from the hostess to the wait staff. We chose the downstairs coziness, but the upstairs is also fun. The bread starter was nicely chewy on the inside with a thin crispy crust - nice flavor. Every steak was perfectly cooked. I loved my filet with a peppercorn crust and I'm not that much of a steak person. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his 42 day dry-aged ribeye. At first I thought the sides were pricey, but the brussel sprouts we're amazingly seasoned and generous for our party of four to share. Even our brussel sprout haters liked them! We were celebrating our last college tuition payment and this was a definite splurge, but well worth it. I would still go back and eat anything on the menu in the lower price range ( there was a chicken pot pie special for $18) because they pay attention to flavor and quality. Amazing place and actually lives up to the hype.
The ambience is fab. The food excellent. Service is friendly, considerate, and just the right amount of attention.
The drink selection is fab; out of this world. If I lived in the city, I’d be a regular.
Large portions - if you are not a big eater ... share everything
