Embarrassingly small portions on Sunday brunch specials this past Sunday. Pretty disappointed as we really wanted to love it!
Food was great as always, but the chicken dish (Poulet Roti) has a new recipe and is not nearly as good as the dark sauce that used to come with it.
Outstanding service and unique takes on classic brunch menu items
Overpriced and small portions. However, nice ambiance and service.
Always a fantastic meal and service at Bastille! We will be back soon!
My father, my friend and I really enjoyed the jazz performance on Sunday. It was a very wonderful experience to be dining too.
The check in stuff and the waiting staff were very kind and accommodating.
It’s so beautiful , it’s worth it to go just to see the interior ! Brings us back to our trip to Paris !
But the food was a rip off . We had good pasta but for $22. it was appetizer size at most . Our friend ordered “ half a chicken “ & it was half a baby game hen !
We were outside on tall stools & my friend’s stool had no bar for her feet so her legs were uncomfortable the whole meal , which was loooong . We had to flag down ( literally ) our waiter to get the check .
Great ambiance 👍🏼
Great atmosphere. Solid food. Wine list is poorly constructed. Out of approximately eight Bordeaux selections, only one was priced below $300! Even at restaurant markup of 100 - 200%, not difficult to find solid selections in the $100 - $150 range.
I really like Bastille for its outstanding food and great service. This visit did not disappoint. My hubs and I split several dishes and the server didn’t object at all. It was a great experience.
I absolutely love coming to Bastille for dinner or brunch. The food is always phenomenal and the service matches.
Lovely food, service and experience.
Excellent wine pairings, and a very knowledgeable waiting staff.
I went with my husband and a friend. The food was generally delicious although I thought the sauce on the chicken was a little bit salty. I was disappointed that the printed menu didn't indicate gluten free even though the same menu items were labeled online. The Toulouse Sausage dish was labeled GF online but our server said it was not.
We've been a number of times and always like the experience. The cocktails were amazing and the wine list is very nice and well curated. I had the chicken liver pate as a starter which was excellent. Great flavor and texture with the apricot jam on the top off-setting the fat nicely. I had the falafel and was underwhelmed. The flavors were muted for all of the components. The falafel themselves were quite bland and the outside crust was overdone. I would not order that again. My dinner companions were very happy with their gnocchi and lamb burgers, though.
Unfortunately Sunday brunch in the atrium was less a French brunch, but more like a noisy night at a bar. Your guests may be loud, but why add additional loud rock music to the mix?
My husband and I absolutely love this place and have since they first opened. Their food is always, always excellent; their service is always top-notch; and it's such a beautiful space to spend an evening or brunch. Love love love Bastille!
We were early, the staff was very accomodating in seating us appropriately
Always a good meal although the menu is not French it is decent food
Really nice place with a good vibe. The sommolier Sarah was awesome. She's made a nice cost conscious selection for us. The mussels were really good and the fries were delicious.
Upon arriving, the hostess said we had no reservation. I showed her my Opentable confirmination and she still said there was no reservation. I had her pull up all her tables and it turns out she had already marked that she had sat us, but it was another party of 4. Not us. When we ordered, two out of the four of us dining ordered lamb burgers to be medium, and they were sent out practically raw. The waitress was very sorry but we waited 20 min + for our burgers while our friends were already done eating. When we got the burgers back they were well done and dry. Service was also pretty slow. Not a good experience, not coming back.
Over the years the food at Cafe Bastille keeps improving. Had the mushroom gratin and it was gone in a flash. Atmosphere is always lively.. in a good way.
The food was excellent. The service was phenomenal (thanks Sarah!). We will definitely be back.
We normally give Bastille 5 stars across the board but, this time, it wasn’t up to par. The frites accompanying the moules we so over cooked they were not edible. They were 1 to 3 inches long and dark brown, nearly black. Figure they dumped the end of the fryer basket and tried to pass them off as frites. Not good and not what we’ve come to know from Bastille. Disappointing.
Fantastic ambiance and vibe. Food is super solid. This year's Bastille day festivities better than ever. (only issue is that entries beat the beers to the table somehow)
Miss playing petanque too but I understand...no more empty lots in Ballard anymore!
We've visited Bastille & Back Bar on several occasions. The food is excellent and reasonably priced and the service is excellent. We've always enjoyed very personable servers who add much to our experience. The music groups that play on occasion are excellent, and special occasions such as Bastille Day are, well, special...to say nothing of being unique.
Another great night at Bastille — the food and service continue to rank among the very best in Seattle.
We used Open Table to book the reservation, but the problem was that the notes I made there didn't transfer to the hosts and that was frustrating. A birthday celebration was not acknowledged.
Went with another couple to celebrate Bastille Day and a graduation. Such a fun experience! Food was fantastic!
Service always attentive without being intrusive. The moule frit was great, the lamb burger delicious. And the salads are the best in town. Always imaginative and wonderful. Cocktails interesting and successful. The fries/frit over salted. Salt very lightly and leave the rest to the customer is our advice. This is a reliably great restaurant. We’ve been there many times and have never been disappointed. Downsides are shared with other restaurants in town —- noise level and parking challenge in the neighborhood.
Always love it there! Would love to have dessert too for brunch.
One of the best restaurants Seattle has to offer. Definitely my favorite neighborhood place eat. Great for a place to go on a special occasion, like a dinner date or when friends visit from out-of-town. Been there multiple times already. Definitely will be back!
The environment is good but the food is mediocre and overpriced
We loved the atmosphere and booth seating. Staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. I’d highly recommend the cheese platter as an appetizer. The mussels were outstanding and my friends enjoyed the chicken dish and the sausage with fava beans and leeks. We will definitely be back!
We were seated indoors by the window. It was fun to watch people walking by on a warm summer Friday night. There was a party of 8 seated next to us. A couple of the males were slightly intoxicated and were unable to use an inside voice.
I will definitely be back. BEST POMME FRITES EVER!!!!!
The food was amazing, we had a lovely night, absolutely loved the steak and the shellfish were great!
Keep up the outstanding work!!! We were sad that we didn't come on the night that you show obscure French New Wave films, though!!! ; )
Food, service and ambiance were very good and conducive to an unrushed and enjoyable business dinner. Service was in step with the pace of our meeting. Unfortunately, the only negative was the seating surface of the booth that was quite sticky due either a recent refinishing or breakdown of the varnish.
My husband and I ate here for our honeymoon. We received 2 celebratory glasses of wine as soon as we were seated. The server was very informative and attentive. Everything tasted amazing. The ambience is incredible. Would absolutely recommend to anyone wanting a fun/romantic dinner.
We each chose the moules (mussels) and frites... served European style. The Special included a scrumptious beet salad and a delicious cherry ice cream/pastry dessert. The mussels were large, tender and served in a wonderful broth. The frites could have been crisper, and the baguette less chewy, but they were not a distraction. Our waiter was prompt and helpful, answering all our questions, and suggested the wonderful white and sparkling wine flight (we finished one, then enjoyed a second). A rich cappuccino rounded out a nearly perfect lunch.
Food not to my taste. Back bar was ridiculously cold.
