We had to wait more than 20 minutes for someone to take our drink order and we were only checked on once. It was as if we didn’t actually have a server assigned to my table. I’ve had good experiences before at Bastille, but this one wasn’t so great
We apologize that our level of service Saturday, didn't measure up to our regular 5 star standards. We promise to do our very best by you and we thank you for letting us know where we let you down. We look forward to serving you again soon. Management-Bastille Brasserie & Bar
Came here for my brother’s birthday — very cute spot with a delicious French menu! Escargot and spring pea risotto were our favs. Great drink menu — the raspberry foam cocktail, Bourbon cocktail, sour beer, sauvignon blanc, and port wine were fantastic. Lol as you can see we went all out. They even gave us comped champagne to toast over desert. Highly recommend for a special occasion or if you want to impress somebody.
Good food and good ambiance

Thank you for the kind words, Ross. From the food to the service we believe every guest deserves 5 star treatment! We can't thank you enough for joining us this past Saturday and we look forward to serving you again soon! -Bastille Brasserie & Bar
At table by door, freezing every time the servers went outside. The steak frites was tough & the host was rude at time of departure. I will not be back!
Fantastic as always! Will be back, food was exceptional, service was top notch, wine list was great. All around super positive experience!

Almost everything we wanted to order was not available. The drinks were weak.
Sat outside and it was lovely. Waitress was very personable. Menu was terrific and a great value. The one and only complaint was how my steak was cooked. I asked for medium rare thinking that meant pink and it came blood red. It was not as if the food was rushed out to us.
Ate outdoors on a nice patio
Food delish, fresh
Brunch menu was varied and appealing
Dirty Bloody Mary was delish
You'll always deserve the best, ANBT, so it means a lot to know that everything from the Dirty Mary and Brunch options to the atmosphere could do just that. Here's hoping that we can welcome you back soon to do it all over again. -Bastille Brasserie and Bar
The food was amazing and the service impeccable!!! Loved it!!!

Dinner was fine. My friend and I wondered why the piped in music was Spanish rather than French. :)
Great Food, reasonable prices, outdoor dining available!
You deserve the best, Bert, so it means a lot to know that everything from the food and the prices, to the outdoor atmosphere could do just that. Here's to welcoming you back soon to do it all over again. -Bastille Brasserie and Bar
It has been awhile since we had been there due to Covid. It was nice to return. It was comfortable, food was great and staff attentive.
It was great for the most part. We had about a 20 minute delay from when they cleared our entree dishes and our dessert being served. As that has never happened before I chalked it up to an anomaly. The food was fantastic.
Bob, thank you very much for sharing your thoughts on your dining experience. We appreciate you taking the time to let us know what we did right (and wrong). We are here because of your support and look forward to serving you again without the 20 minute wait! Management - Bastille Brasserie & Bar
My wife and I love Bastille. During the Pandemic, we have been loyal “take-away” customers. But we were ready to do dine-in, as were neighbors - all of us are fully vaccinated. Wonderful! The food and drink were superb. The service was attentive. The noise level was modest. We will return to this place, our favorite local restaurant. What a delightful place, and the menu always satisfies.
Wonderful brunch on the patio. Loved being able to book an outdoor table in advance. Food and service was excellent. Only complaint was Easter brunch was prix fixe and the price was higher than the regular brunch and not published on their website menu.
Food is always excellent with beautiful food presentation.
We thin beauty is in the eye of the beholder, Dennis! Thank you for showing us your appreciation on the beauty of our new spring dishes. We can't wait to see you again soon! - Bastille Brasserie & Bar
Good restaurant, close to home. Lunch on the terrace in definitely an alternative to take out in the pandemic
Hey Neighbor! We are so happy to have you near by, Charles! We look forward to serving you again soon. - Bastille Brasserie & Bar
A wonderful and relaxing brunch on the terrace. Food was delicious, and service was efficient and staff friendly.
We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day, Nora! The service, food and everything in between was humming and we are thrilled that we could share it all with you. Hoping to see you again soon! - Bastille Brasserie & Bar
I had the eggs benedict, which was fantastic! I would highly recommend their pate, if you enjoy pate...it was the best I've had in a while! Great deal for Easter brunch...my only suggestion is to choose wisely (or skip entirely) the desserts as I felt they were too sugary.
From the Eggs Benedict to the paté, we so enjoy reading about how we did, Jackie! Here's to another round of Brunch soon! - Bastille Brasserie & Bar
Easter brunch was wonderful. The scallops and pea risotto were outstanding!
Fantastic service, fantastic food and wine. We will be back and look forward to doing so!

The fish was perfect. The wine was good. And the service was friendly and efficient.
Thank you AG! We believe that cooking things perfect is the best approach and we are so glad you enjoyed your poisson, wine and service! Here's to dining together again soon. -Management @ Bastille Brasserie & Bar
Mom and I had brunch for her birthday—everything was wonderful! We will be back!
We are so happy that you chose us for your Mom's Special Day! Here's to a future brunch or dinner to celebrate the joys of life. Joyeux Anniversaire!!
Bastille is one of my favorite spots for brunch. their food is consistent and tasty. definitely recommend.
It was a pleasure seeing you for brunch Sinead. We can't wait to see you again for another round of deliciousness.
It's a little pricy, but the food and drinks are delicious. It also has a lovely outdoor seating area.
This was some of the best food I’ve ever eaten in my life. Everything was perfect from the time we entered the restaurant. Service is also top notch! I’ll definitely be back.
From our food to our service, making sure that you always receive the very best is what it's all about. We're so glad that you had such a lovely meal, and we can't thank you enough for making us part of your dining experience. Here's to doing it all over again sometime soon!
First, the good things. The food was outstanding. One of the best meals that we have had recently. The service was also very good. The problem came when it was time to pay. We had one of their own 15% off coupons, which they refused to honor since we mostly used the fixed price menu. Of course, we had no way of knowing that, and it was one of the PRIMARY reasons that we chose that restaurant on this past Saturday. Since we could not use that coupon, the three meals were a total of $10-20 more than they should have been using the ala carte prices and applying the coupon. No big deal; I can more than afford it. However, I definitely felt ripped off by their misleading pricing practices. The manager extended the life of the coupon. So what, I have no intention of ever coming back at this point. Congrats, you made a few more dollars from me on Saturday. Good for you! On the other hand, you have lost thousands of my dining dollars for years to come by playing games with the bill. We really liked the restaurant and certainly the amazing food, but there are of plenty of other good restaurants that do not play games with the bill at the end of the meal. We could have been and planned on being a regular customer, not now. We eat out a few times a week, and all of those $1000's will be going somewhere other than the Bastille. What a shame; some of that could have been going in your direction. Value for your money- not there!
Upholding the highest standards in everything is perfectly executed is something important to us, Scott. We apologize our efforts did not provide enough comfort and that there was any confusion, we do everything to not mislead our guests. We're honored to have welcomed you guys for a special birthday dinner. We have total confidence that we can easily show you the best treatment, especially for a birthday celebration, so here's hoping that we have the opportunity to do just that sometime soon!
Wonderful food and excellent, attentive service.
We're so glad that you had such a lovely meal, and we can't thank you enough for making us part of your restaurant week. Here's to doing it all over again sometime soon!
Outdoor seating was spacious and comfortable. Service and food excellent. Can’t wait to return.
Delicious food, wonderful weather, cherry blossoms and delightful guests are what makes it all so special, Doug. We thank you for getting out and choosing Bastille as your dining destination. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Bastille is always a lovely experience. Never disappoints.
We can't tell you enough how we enjoyed seeing you! Here's to another dining adventure together soon.
Great service by entire Bastille staff, especially during these crazy pandemic times. Did not rush us the entire evening.
It was our pleasure seeing you, Thomas, and we are so very grateful to you for spending your dinner time with us. Here's to more dining out in the future! Cheers!!
We had a great visit and look forward to going back!
Here's to another round of cocktails and delicious bites again soon, Lad! Thank you for letting us know how we did. Santé
The food and service were outstanding. Maybe absence from dining out makes the stomach grow fonder. This is a restaurant which has consistently been our favorite for many years.
It means the world, Mark, to know that we made your belly happy with a delicious and enjoyable meal. Thanks so much for coming by -- and for sharing your story. We can't wait to welcome you back to explore even more of our menu!
The food was incredible, as was our server! The restaurant was very busy, and so the wait for our service was apparently longer than usual, but I honestly didn’t notice until we got a dessert on the house and an apology! The desserts were actually my favorite part—complex layers of flavor that had my pallet absolutely SINGING! Thank you for a wonderful experience ❤️
We're honored to have welcomed you to dinner, and it means the world to know that everything from the service to the desserts rose to the occasion! You'll always deserve the absolute best of the best. We can't wait to do it all over again the next time you're craving a delicious French dinner! -Bastille Brasserie and Bar
A great experience for the first time eating out in a year. Very pleasant atmosphere and service, and great food!
We are very honored that you chose us for your first dining out experience, Allyn! That makes us feel truly special. We can't wait to welcome you back again soon for the spring season and delicious French food. -Bastille Brasserie & Bar
Awesome place!!! For a nice meal and great service
We're happy you stopped by Mike! We appreciate you taking the time to let us know how we did. Here's to a future visit again soon. -Bastille Brasserie and Bar
This was my first time at Bastille; my friend had been there before. We went because I got an email advertising a “family-style dinner” of $55 for 2 people. The subject line said: “You’re invited to dine! At home or on our patio — We are ready to cook for you!” And the email said to-go available Tuesday-Saturday. It didn’t say the Parisian Style Family Dinner was ONLY to go, and we didn’t find that out until we got to the restaurant where we were told we couldn’t take advantage of this offer. We were referred to the prefixe menus, which is 3 courses for $35. Fair enough, but the choices were limited to those denoted with a rooster icon, and two of those choices came with an additional charge if you ordered them. My friend opted not to do the prefixe. I did, but my steak frites was so so as the frites were overdone. I want to give Bastille another chance, but I found that email misleading and not sure I’ll venture here again.
Hi Anonymous-While we never have any intention of misleading anyone, we are sorry our email was confusing for you. We have, for over a year now, offered the family style dinner to go only and we kind of took it for granted that everyone knew that at this point. We will try to be clearer on the next email, but we do send this email out every week regarding the Parisian Family Dinner. Always, feel free to give us a call if you ever have any questions. We are happy to help any way we can! Cheers!
