Bastiens is a dated quirky little joint. Having said that it's worth a visit. Good steaks, nice fried chicken. Put it on your list

Family owned since 1937. I had sugar steak since it is the specialty. It was very good, but my husband's filet....TO DIE FOR! I ordered no potato-double veggies, a nice alternative. Everything about this place is great-food, service and atmosphere.

We had the sugar steak and the Steak David. Both were tasty, was impressed they weren't doused and you could appreciate the meat. Our waitress was one of the family and told us the history of the place. It's a one time visit, but a...More

We were pleasantly surprised that Bastien's was very good. My daughter had the veal which was superb, my wife had the salmon with lingonberry sauce...the salmon was superb but we didn't care for the sauce. Suggest you order the sauce on the side and see...More

Movies should be filmed here. Our waitress rasped out the specials. She was awesome until we had ordered. Two of us chose the Sugar Steaks - 16 oz. medium rare. I HATE to write this: would have been better at Longhorn or Outback. Extremely average...More

Ordered halipino steak, amazing taste and the prefect combination of spices and sweetness. I would go back again for an vintage steakhouse experience.

Really enjoyable steak place, has the ambiance of a 70's Italian steak house that is family run. Food was very good, desserts were fabulous and the service excellent. Overall a great feel, would definitely go back.

My wife and I went to Bastien's after a friend recommended it. We have been back several times and the food and service is consistently great! The steaks are wonderful, and you get the sides with the price, as opposed to higher priced steak houses...More

They do. I have walked in many times. Sometimes they are too busy, but in my experience you can usually walk in.

Evocative of the 1960's-style steakhouses of the time, Bastien's has a truly timeless atmosphere. With its circular dining room spanning three levels, a classic piano and a high ceiling, this restaurant is the longest continuously owned eatery in the state of Colorado, with the same family behind its success for over 70 years. There is enough room to seat over 100 people to comfortably enjoy a meal or buffet and if you're looking to host a private party, the top floor of Bastien's is the ideal spot for any occasion or event. Meat lovers are well-catered for, with a range of beef tenderloin, prime rib and T-bones on offer alongside the house speciality - The succulent New York strip steak, with a sugar glaze that savours the juices and seizes the flavour.
