    Came into the city for an early dinner before seeing a show. When we arrived at 4:45, the place was pretty empty, but we were greeted warmly by the host and our waiter. Just in time for Happy Hour, we took a chance on the "tour of the menu" option and couldn't have been more pleased. So much food...and the flavors were out of this world! Seriously, after several awesome courses leading up to an entree, we enjoyed the best burger we have ever had in a restaurant. Go to this place...

    I wanted to like Ben Paris. The atmosphere is great. However, the food took a long time to come out without anyone checking in with us about how long it was taking. The honey fried chicken was overcooked as was the octopus. However the focaccia bread dipped in the sauce from the octopus salad was amazing!

    We walked to this place from our hotel room at The Inn at the Market. Very convenient. The Wagyu beef burger was fantastic. I cannot remember having a better burger. On the other hand, my wife's fried chicken was a touch over done. Nice location with a great atmosphere for couples and for groups.

    The three of us really enjoyed our evening out at Ben Paris. The bar tender was friendly and knowledgeable without being invasive. The servers were courteous and efficient without being cold. Dishes were cleared timely, but not to rush you, more for the diner’s comfort. It was lovely, and I plan to take my visiting guests there again.

    After a day of sightseeing we stopped to eat and reflect on our day in Seattle. Ben Paris is simple and elegant and the food was the same. We ordered the burrata and tomato, fried chicken, burger with onion jam, and the Chef’s seafood of the day. No meal disappointed, the server Wanda was a gem. We recommend the truffle fries with aioli.

    We are in town visiting, and immediately this restaurant caught our attention. It’s aesthetically pleasing on the inside & quiet. Our cocktails were very good, as well as the octopus we had for an appetizer. Our server was very attentive and polite as well. We ordered 2 “small plates” and a pork chop for our main course. The small plates weren’t small, at all. Which is normally not a huge complaint but we had been munching throughout the day and weren’t overly hungry. The kale Caesar salad was delicious, as well as the truffle fries. My husbands pork chop was very underwhelming unfortunately. Half of it was fat, it seemed like a very low grade cut of meat. We ended up spending over $150, we love experiencing new restaurants in new cities and don’t mind spending that much for a meal that “wows” us. But this wasn’t one of those meals.

    Ben ParisResponded on September 6, 2022Hello! We really want to thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. Also for giving us a chance to serve you. Very sorry to hear that your experience did not meet your expectations and will surely use your feedback to improve. We do hope that the next time you are visiting, you give us another chance, we are confident that it will far exceed this one. Thank you for your honest feedback, have a great day!

    My husband and I did the tasting menu. Overall the food was very good (the hush puppies were crazy flavorful), but when you can add up all the dishes they brought us and it was cheaper by 25$ if we had just ordered everything individually it's a little disappointing. We do tasting menus a lot, usually they provide one dish off menu and that didnt happen. I also specifically asked to taste one dish and we didn't get it. We had reservations for 715pm and it took a long time to get service, the host ended up grabbing our drinks for us (which is awesome). We expressed our concerns to our server and he was amazing with his response and care. Overall, if you are looking for a tasting menu I would not try this place.

    Ben ParisResponded on September 6, 2022Hello Kevin, Thank you for taking the time to share this experience and for the detailed feedback about your tasting menu experience. Happy to hear that you enjoyed the food that was served. You make a very valid point that our Culinary team will use to adjust as we want the tasting menu to continue to be a unique experience. We do hope that you come back again, we won't disappoint. Thanks, Rob Nichols General Manager

    I was dining alone; my experience started very well--I ordered the Seattle Sour drink, which was excellent, and started with the focaccia, which was so tasty! I ordered another drink and then the burger. That's when things went downhill. When I had arrived, there were several empty tables, but they filled up with larger parties. After he took my meal order, I never saw my waiter again, a tall, dark man who had been pleasant. But once he was assigned larger parties (bigger tips?) I didn't exist. My burger arrived; the fries were excellent, but the burger itself was so salty that it was almost inedible. I had no check in with the waiter and could not get his attention. I ate what I could, and another waiter took away my plate. It was another 35 minutes before I could get anyone's attention to get my check. My original waiter just ignored me while playing up to three tables with larger parties. Finally I got the attention of a man who had been seating people--he acted surprised at my annoyance, and then spoke harshly to a waiter who wasn't even mine--I felt sorry for him. I told him it was not his fault, but he was very nice. I know places are short handed, but my waiter walked past my table so many times and just avoided eye contact. He probably saw me as a minor tip as a lone diner. I liked the drink, but I would not go back again. So much for trying someplace new.

    Ben ParisResponded on September 6, 2022Hello PeterG, Greatly appreciate you sharing this experience and happy to hear that there were some enjoyable moments at the start of it. However, we do regret, to hear that the experience went downhill after that. Certainly not a typical experience and your honest feedback will help us get back on track. We really do hope you give us another chance and we we look forward to serving you again. Thanks, Rob Nichols General Manager
