So,we made this reservation 3 weeks out because we were advised it was "impossible" to get in to this "incredible steakhouse a la francais." At 7:45 we were seated at a tiny table - fortunately against a wall - because the tiny table next to us ( the middle tiny table ) was about 6-8 inches away. Privacy? NOT. Our... More

My wife and I had a late dinner there in February 2015. Nothing truly exceptional. The fried chicken was average, and I love fried chicken especially dark meat. My wife had a steak which was good but not great. Said all that to say to me it was an as expected place to eat for the price. Service was a... More

I am so glad I picked a hotel that just so happened to be right next to Bavettes. This place is fantastic from the atmosphere to the service onto the food. My husband and I ordered the shrimp for the appetizer and the bone in rib eye for our entree. This place serves large portions of food so we decided... More

This must have been one of the best steaks I have eaten. The staff were friendly and attentive. We were not rushed to order our meal so we could enjoy the ambience of the restaurant and our cocktails. The side dishes were big enough for my husband and myself to share. I would recommend trying this restaurant.

Bavette's is all around amazing. The atmosphere is fantastic, very laid back and comfortable. We showed up 45 minutes early for our reservation so we could sit at the bar and have a drink. They were able to seat us early since we were there. The service at the bar and our table was wonderful. We never had to wait... More

On Valentine's Day, our party of 6 were seated right away. It's a beautiful atmosphere with jazz music. Many steak options, salads, pastas etc. We had steak, meat loaf, stroganoff, pasta and burger for our meals. Every item was beyond our expectations. A little pricey! A side sweet potato was $9.00 as well as the mashed potatoes. Bread was heavenly!... More

I've been here twice now and both meals have been fabulous. The Main lobster is a knockout and a must order. On my second visit we tried some new items that were incredible - lamb, beef stroganoff and creamed spinach. The service is top notch from start to finish. The setting can't be beat. This is my favorite restaurant in... More

Good food but the noise level is for the young and young at heart and I don't fall into either group.
