Bastone is a local restaurant for me and I go there fairly often. My wife and I decided that we would like an early dinner on New Years Eve and picked Bastone because we were familiar with it and it had valet parking (cold night). Got there, the valet was no where to be found, so I dropped the wife... More

The Belgian-style ales are OMG good, whatever your palate. I come alone or with friends to eat the mussels (in various styles), enjoy the baguette, and drink truly outstanding beer. That's a small part of the menu & offerings, but what I love most here. Like being in Amsterdam again.

Located in downtown Royal Oak on Main Street, this restaurant serves salads, burgers, soups, and a wide variety of other entrees, along with full bar service. They have both booth and table seating, so it is perfect for a romantic dinner for two, or a large group. The food and service was very good. Props to our server, Robert, who... More

I have been to Bastone several times and have never been disappointed. What I like about this place it has a very unique feel to it. The menu has very interesting options and it's hard to make a decision. During this visit I had the Chicken Waldorf Salad and my colleagues each had a sandwich - all of us were... More

We went on a Friday night and we loved Bastone. We had a 30 minute wait at the bar that felt like nothing because of the friendly staff, great IPA and nice trio of mussels sampler. Dinner was featured an excellent steak & frites for me and a pizza for my spouse. It was fun

Craft brews are hit or miss with me, but having tried most of the beers at Bastone, I can say that they are all very good and very drinkable. Some places go too crazy with the hops or weird ingredients, but all of Bastone's beers are good. Obviously, this place is loud if there are more than a few people... More

I've had some good meals here - very good fish, great mac & cheese. It's hard to go with a group and try to converse, though, because of the noise level. The last time I was there it was very crowded, so we ate in the bar. This time, we were not thrilled with our meals (how do you screw... More

Went here for a business lunch and enjoyed it. The service was quick and efficient....we were in and out in about 40 minutes. The place itself had good character inside. The wooden tables were a very good compliment to the modern brewpub decor. I went with some potato leek soup and a grilled ham and cheese sandwich with jalapeño cream... More

Horrible service!! Waited almost a hour and a half for food orders to to be placed. As more of our party arrived no one attended to them to see what they needed or wanted. The elevator was NOT working for our relative that needed wheelchair assistance so we had to move our party to the 1st floor.... Total inconvience. After... More
