Great service and bartender ""Carl""

I always get the best service at the bar. Great place to go eat and drink.

Outstanding lamb burger

Bastille gets an ""OK, but not great"" in my book. I should start by saying that both the bartender and our server were stellar. Great, spot-on helpful but not in-your-face, we were very happy with the service at Bastille. The atmosphere reminded us a little of Balthazar in NYC - we really enjoyed the overall feel of the place. We were taking advantage of the great weather that Seattle was having (until t... view more

Tasty Italian in Totem Lake

Cafe Veloce isn't in the easiest to find location (in the Totem Lake area of Kirkland near Evergreen Hospital), but it's certainly worth pulling on the MapQuest directions to find it. \r \r Veloce offers traditional Italian favorites, some with a twist. Try their take on bruschetta that includes green olives and red pepper flakes for an added kick. Our favorite entree is the Chicken Scampi (aka ""The Sleeping Pill"... view more

The Back Bar - late night gem!

I've never been served an entire meal nor been seated in Bastille's main dining room but I am becoming a big fan of their Back Bar. Enter via the front door, walk past the bar, down the long hallway toward the restrooms. At the end of the hall on your left you'll find the very sexy Back Bar. Dimly lit and evoking a 1920's speakeasy, Bastille's Back Bar is the best place in Ballard to extend a great date or grab a cla... view more

Comme çi comme ça

One step inside the door and you will instantly be transported to a Parisian locale that echoes an Edith Piaf song. The striking décor is all about the drama, from the black and white color scheme, to the oversized metro clock in the entry, everywhere you look is a feast for the eyes. The French cuisine Bastille offers is a great addition to the ever-growing, eclectic, Ballard restaurant scene. \r \r With such spec... view more

Stunning French Restaurant

Bastille changed the restaurant scene in Ballard, bringing a new level of the dining experience. Without a doubt the stunning dining room and back bar are the highlight of the restaurant. During summer and spring months, the outside patio is quite possibly one of the best places to eat outside in Seattle. \r \r Bastille’s food however lacks the magnitude of the space. Salad greens and herbs from their French style ... view more

Gorgeous decor, but food and service wildly inconsistent

I really did want to like Bastille. I knew there was so much hype that it couldn't possibly live up the billing, but even still it sounded like a can't-miss proposition: affordable French food in a sprawling, exquisitely decorated space in one of Seattle's hottest neighborhoods.\r \r Maybe it's a victim of its own success? Each time I've gone it's been so crowded as to be deafening and near-impossible to snag a tab... view more

Subway tiles, fabulous lighting, and cozy wood tables, Bastille is bustling every night of the week with Ballard's finest. The menu is diverse and a nice addition to Ballard Ave's restaurant choices. I am hooked on the steak sandwich with frites and gruyere dipping sauce but the cassoulet and onion soup are wonderful too. The cocktails are great here and they have a good selection of French wines to choose from. St... view more

4th and final time - never again!

Each time same thing - terrible service with an attitude. So we, my wife and I tried again, and again the same thing - waitress treated us like we were invisible. We brought our neighbors, another couple, and they agreed with the terrible wait and poor service. We brought our two son's and their girlfriend just before Christmas, and again, the waitress just couldn't be bothered. But patrons just can't enought of th... view more
