    We came here for brunch and had a very unpleasant experience. The service, for starters, left much to be desired. The host/waiter at the front was not customer service focused at all. He seemed super annoyed when we asked for a different table more in the center of the restaurant, even though it was super empty. He said it’s a busy restaurant and that there’s no other seats available, so we got this super awkward table on the side by the kitchen double doors. The chairs for that particular table were also crappier and not cushioned. When we asked if we could have a different chair, he was not happy about it. It took forever to get our order taken too, and it seemed like we weren’t really cared for as customers. I wouldn’t come here again.

    The server was great. However, the foot was not. I ordered pasta. The dish had lamb meatballs which, while delicious, were about the size of the cherry tomatoes that accompanied them. The house-made tagliatelle was undercooked, stiff. The sauce was overwhelming. The carrot cake was dry. The other dish was a braise d served atop puréed potatoes. Perfectly fine. But, thats it…just fine.

    The place feels nice and renovated, the staff is super nice and helpful. Unfortunately, we found the food to be somewhat too oily (e.g. the ricotta pancakes and the sandwiches) and underwhelming. The salmon beet bagel was very good instead. Coffee was also good. The noise level is somewhat high but bearable. I'd still come back for the vibe and proximity to other Seattle attractions.

    Ben Paris. Situated on the street level of the State Hotel at one of the entrances to Pike Place. The occasion was bites and drinks before the Seattle Symphony performing Bach's St. John's Passion for the first time: in honor of the 300th anniversary of its inaugural performance (on Good Friday, April 7th 1724). Highly recommend Réservations through OpenTable. First girlfriend arrived by bus and made sure to order the clams and the butternut squash soup and the crab salad. Second girlfriend arrived by light rail just as I walked in. We added buttermilk jalapeño hush puppies, the kale cauliflower Caesar salad, and fried halloumi cheese to the table. Girlfriend number one got a Mocktail. Girlfriend number two got a glass of white. And I got the spring drink that donated one dollar for international women's day. Drink was a thing of beauty. It involved some many things I love including muddled fresh mint, fresh berries, fresh (not dried) lemonade slices, and an unholy strength of bourbon. The clams were delicious especially with the hunks of toasted sourdough. Regrettably the soupy base was too too salty to really enjoy, even when cut with the bread, so we decided to use the bread to sop up the butternut squash soup which was beautifully balanced and wonderful in so many ways. The crab salad was so fresh and truly delicious you kind of wished you had three servings, one for each of us. But hands-down our favorite was the kale cauliflower Caesar salad. Don't miss that one. There's something perfect about the kale being chopped up so it's not overwhelming to chew and having the cauliflower sliced and tossed in all that delicious shredded shredded cheese with the toppings. We asked for extra fresh lemon slices because that brought out the flavor of the salad. The butternut milk jalapeño hush puppies were very easy to eat with the pimento cheese spread. The fried halloumi was an amazing texture, but needed the sweet dip to cut the salty.

    Brought two friends visiting from Portland to help me celebrate my birthday. The staff went all out to make sure we had a wonderful dinner and experience to start our evening. Food was delicious and totally hit the spot. Our host Hattie left a positive impression on them and we all plan to dine at Ben Paris again next time they are in town. Food perfectly cooked, cocktails prepared with care and dessert absolutely left us content and ready for a long evening of a good time on the town in Seattle. Ben Paris knocked it out of the park!

    The menu isn’t huge, which translates into doing a few things very well. Primarily a bunch menu, fresh ingredients and creative seasonal cocktails. A block from the Market gives it a landmark location. A unique experience for locals & tourists alike. No kids menu, for a reason lol

    We have always been impressed by the quality of Ben Paris’ cuisine, and we again found everything to be delicious. I read some recent reviews about the restaurant being short-staffed and, on the evening we dined, there was only one server on the dining floor. That said, she was very professional and skilled at attending to all the tables (with the help of the bartender delivering drinks) and we were pleased with the service we received. Highly recommend!

    The worst dining experience I’ve had in Seattle in a very long time, possibly ever. We got right on, so that was good. However, 45 minutes after being seated I had to flag down the server to place the order. Our apps never arrived, server then asked, “ do you still want them”? They brought me the wrong entree. When I finally got the correct order (80 minutes after being seated), it was over-cooked. Our water was never refilled. Then to top it off, they tried to bill for the apps we never received. The short story here is, don’t waste your time at this restaurant.

    The Ricotta Pancakes are amazing. We also enjoyed the yogurt parfait that comes with the Ben Paris breakfast. We will be back to try more of the menu.

    Service was great, but the food wasn’t the best. The lighting from the street lamps bleed into the space making it extremely bright.

    Be aware that the lighting here is super bright. Also, the food is fairly over priced in my opinion for what they are serving.

    The waitress sarcastically remarked couple of times how she’d rather be serving us on Valentine’s Day than attended a concert with her partner. I get it, you’re working on VD, but why the need for sarcasm? We’re celebrating a special occasion. Then, she got in a dispute with the couple next table over - apparently the wine was not paired with the steak properly. It got uncomfortable so we left. Also, value wise, $250 (dinner, only one drink, and a 20% tip - even though the waitress didn’t deserve it, we paid) for an ok meal - just not worth it. It’s also too bright in there. Hence the 2/5 stars.
    Ben ParisResponded on February 17, 2024
    Dear Greg, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a thoughtful review.

    Food was very good, server was a bit “full of herself “ so to speak! We did the 75$ valentines special. It included three courses as well as three wine selections. We had to ask for our desert serving, then server blamed bartender vs. just apologizing and fixing the issue. Hope to go again and try a different server 👍

    Server kept rolling her eyes and making us seem like we were inconveniencing her when we asked for things. Example, we had an appetizer or pancakes and a parfait and when she was cleaning off our table for or main course she said we can keep our silver ware. When I asked if she minded if we received new silverware her attitude changed, she just nodded and walked away. Again later when asking for her assistance she nodded but as she walked away I saw she rolled her eyes. We did not ask for much and were very polite to our server. It made us feel uncomfortable and tarnished the experience a bit. Overall, food was amazing though!

    A great restaurant. Service was a bit slow, but I think they were down a person. Food was super good, especially the fried chicken - the perfect balance of spice & sweet. Drinks were okay for the cost.
