    We love going to Badtille. It was my girls weekend and we wanted French cuisine. The restaurant was very accommodating bc we were going to be late and they held our table for our arrival. This place has several rooms for diners. Some have a lower noise level than others. Our room did not. That was my only complaint. The food was outstanding and the service was very friendly. I will return again

    The food at Bastille was mixed. It ranged from very good (shrimp fritters over an avocado creme base) to not great over-cooked shrimp as part of the shrimp & grits offering. The eggs benedict was well seasoned and the croissant was quite well prepared, but there was just too much sauce doused over everything! Could barely taste the eggs. Could not finish the dish. The worst were the desserts. The creme brulee was just not good. The ice cream was indistinguishable among the different flavors. The worst was a profiterole had been requested (even at additional cost) and was refused, even thought the table next to use requested a profiterole for a child, and the profiterole was prepared. It made no sense, even to our server. But she was not able to get the policy changed. Could be a great restaurant with more attention to the quality of each dish and the need to accommodate customer requests.
