Bastille Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
Had dinner at Bastille Kitchen on 9/19. This restaurant never disappoints. Great food, excellent service, lively and pleasant ambience. The French onion soup was awesome. $1.00 oysters from 5:00 to 7:00pm at the bar. Delicious! We had lamb. It was very good. Overall a great evening!
This was my second time at Bastille. Excellent experience again. It was our 3rd wedding anniversary and we included it in the Open Table notes, thinking nothing of it. We were greeted with champagne and a candle in our desert. Wonderfull touch and the staff was great. The food was memorable, so delicious. Can't wait to go back.
The total experience was first-rate: from the restaurant calling to confirm the reservation to the reception by the hosts to the friendly and attentive service by the waiter to the incredibly tasty food. The noise level was higher than I expected but not intolerable nor disruptive to the conversation at our table. The menu offered a variety of interesting choices throughout - appetizers, soups/salads, entrees and desserts. I'll definitely return.
Bastille Kitchen offers superb, authentic French cuisine prepared and served beautifully. Our party had food ranging from appetizers like Bastille Deviled Eggs and Grilled Octopus, to entrees including Whole Branzino, Bacon Wrapped Rabbit and Steak au Poivre. All were spectacular (served in smallish portions). The Truffle Fries are a nice addition.
The food is quite above-average (as are the prices). This is a wonderful culinary event.
I made a reservation here for my husband's birthday - just the 2 of us and we had a wonderful dining experience. The server was one of the best I've ever had. He gave us great recommendations and made
the dinner feel special. The food was delicious- my favorite was the tuna tartare but it was all very good. We have already recommended this place to others.
We were celebrating her birthday at our first time at Bastille. It's a great space, with high ceilings and very well designed remodel of a great old warehouse space in the beautifully restored Fort Point Channel area. Food was delicious, and our server was terrific!
This is a very spacious restaurant with ample room between tables, making conversations not intrusive. We were there during restaurant week and the $39 dinner menu included halibut as a main course. Great value (although the fish was slightly overcooked). Everything else was perfect. Good service also. We will return.
We were going to a concert at the Blue Hills Pavilion, and were tired of the typical waterfront restaurants. I decided to try #BastilleKitchen, and we were not disappointed! Authentic menu, hand-crafted cocktails, and wonderful ambiance! I would go back again, and have already begun to spread the word!
Celebrated my best friend's birthday here today! Amazing food, wine and service. Our waiter's name was Michael and he took such great care of us! Front of the house was welcoming and accommodating. Very sophisticated atmosphere without being too snooty or sterile.
This is my second time eating at Bastille. The first time I went was for a holiday party which they were packed. Food was great but service was horrible. I gave them a pass since it was during the holiday. I visited the 2nd time this past Friday for restaurant week. Service again was terribly slow and food this time was ok. My steak was cooked more than the medium that I ordered. It took our waiter a long time to get napkins which we then flagged another waiter to get it which took him 3 tries. Towards the end after finishing the entree, it took them 20-30 mins to get the dessert which we pre-ordered in the beginning. It was just one creme brûlée which had good texture but was cold, almost like it was sitting out awhile. If you're not in a hurry, then it's an ok place to go to, but otherwise you can expect to flag down your waiter/waitress whenever you need something from them.
We came here for restaurant week/ dine out Boston and will definitely be back soon. We tried the french onion, the crab appetizer, the halibut, the steak frites, and the coffee & doughnuts dessert. The french onion and the beignets were the true standouts, but everything was pretty solid.
I'll be back for the atmosphere and service, our server was outstanding- we had a later reservation and he never made us feel rushed. We had seriously outstanding service. While the space is huge, the way the tables and booths are set up give it a nice intimate feel- definitely a great date spot.
Crowded seating and ended up next to a group of six who were very loud. Not their problem, but difficult to talk. Food good but not outstanding. My steak frites had no vegetables. We ordered haricots verts but never got them. My husband had bronzino. Bill was $174. Whoa.
The charcuterie and pate was good, the escargot was tasty but nothing special. The entrees of roasted chicken and lamb chops were very good. The sirloin au poivre was not typical as it was not crusted in pepper but came with an au poivre sauce on the side.
The chocolate mousse and ice creams were very good.
Very enjoyable and memorable meal for a special occasion. The food was mostly outstanding: Red and Yellow Beets, George's Bank Redfish, and Charcuterie and Pate Selection, Petit Fours for dessert plus a glass of Porto. The one food that didn't quite meet our expectations was the Grilled Octopus appetizer that was a bit rubbery (we've had better in Amuleto and Gustazo restaurants in Waltham). The Cotes de Provence Rose went perfectly with the meal, especially in the hot weather. The service was professional and accommodating. We look forward to going back sometime.
While the food was wonderful, the service was subpar. We waited approximately half an hour after our reservation for our table. Upon entering the dining room, there were a number of empty tables. Our waitress was inattentive and excruciatingly slow. Several tables were seated after us and ate and paid before we received our complete main course. One bright spot in terms of service was the sommelier. He was engaging and knowledgeable. While our food was delicious, we likely won't return with as there are so many restaurants with more reliable service in the neighborhood.
