What they serve is good. However, their lack of seafood options for a restaurant in Seattle is bewildering -- even crab cakes would be a choice if they are worried about fresh fish spoiling. Also wish they had a vegetarian option besides pasta. Otherwise, its solid.

Should I start by describing the warm, moist, cinnamon roll? Or perhaps the perfectly seasoned shakshuka. Hmm, maybe the delicious seafood omelet? Or the succulent burger with caramelized onions and ooeygooey melted gruyere? I know I will definitely finish with the warm fluffy pancake with the homemade apricot ice cream! And, then there was the refreshing aperol spritzer. And that luxuriant coffee cocktail to top it all off.

It was a bummer that the roof was closed permanently to Ben Paris diners however the excellent drinks and food made up for it.

Duck confit slightly overcooked and overly salty. Service outstanding. Unfortunately the large windows in the restaurant provided a great view to the ample supply of homeless and vagrants stumbling around while panhandling. Perhaps some window screens may be in order?

Angel was our server and she was so friendly, asked for feedback on our dinner and so helpful with menu item questions. Only slight disappointment was some of the items on Yelp photos weren’t available on the menu but I understand menus change. Was very happy with the meal and will be back next time I’m in Seattle.

Food was great but the service was definitely lacking. We weren’t checked on nor asked if we needed anything. Our server (blonde girl) barely spoke to us and barely made eye contact when we said to have a good day.

Had a great brunch at Ben Paris. Breakfast sandwich and baked eggs were both very flavorful and the dry WA rose on point. Staff was very friendly and it was a nice, airy space. Would highly recommend.

Ben Paris was great last night, my first time actually sitting in the restaurant. A dear couple was visiting from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and after picking them up at the airport and dropping them off at their hotel, I knew they wanted a quick dinner and an early evening. Ben Paris was across the street and down a couple of blocks from their hotel, perfect for their needs.

We had done take out from Ben Paris during the pandemic, when the neighborhood surrounding Ben Paris was quiet and forlorn. It was almost spooky in the winter of Covid. Last night, a Friday night of July 4th week-end 2021, the neighborhood was booming. Life was all around us, noise, laughter, and exclamations of delight rang out. What a difference a vaccination makes.

The food at Ben Paris was delightful, our fried chicken moist and crispy. The French Fries were perfect, crisp and crunchy. The burger was massive and looked delicious. Pasta, difficult for take out, was wonderful. Tagliatelle tasted al dente and scrumptious. Drinks were fun. We all had a great time. Ben Paris turned into a perfect choice.

We stopped in for brunch on Father’s Day before we headed off to the Mariner game. It was our first time visiting Ben Paris and we couldn’t have been happier that we chose to try a new place! The food - omg the food! It was delicious- the fresh baked cinnamon roll was a WOW! The ricotta pancakes truly amazing. We didn’t have a bad dish amongst the four in our group. We shared everything and oohed and awed our way through the entire meal. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive. Her recommendations were spot on. We can’t wait to go back and try dinner soon!

Another outstanding meal at Ben Paris! Octopus, Lamb & Rabbit meatball tagliatelle, fresh pea vine risotto, a proper old fashioned. Even the kids' shirley temple was a hit with the dark cherry grenadine. Attentive service and a lovely respite on a dreary Seattle day.

The restaurant is nice and close to the market. The food is not very interesting and quite expensive for what you pay.
Orange juice has added sugar and does not taste as natural.
