Atmosphere was very nice. The crowd was between the age of 20-30yr. We had reservations and waited for 15/min to be seated, no room at the bar. Not a big deal.
We were seated and given menues by our waiter, who did'nt return for our drink order for greater than 15/min. The remainder of the evening was similar. Two of the four dinner guests enjoyed their meals, the others not so much. The prices were much higher than expected for the quality of the food as well as the either inexperience or lack of interest in our party.

I love this place. Tomato and bacon salad and any filet and you can't go wrong. Keep up the great work!

The ambiance is excellent. Dark and cavernous. Wait staff is knowledgeable and very helpful. Group of four of us and everyone loved their meals. We did have to adjust to the darkness. Make sure your waitress gives you a little flashlight.
Two of us had the 10 oz fillet. Both of us thought it was excellent and even better than another favorite steak house in Chicago. Tender and done to our requested level of doneness.
My husband had the short rib stroganoff and gobbled down every bite. The fourth guest had the salmon and enjoyed it just as much as we enjoyed our beef.
Make reservations well in advance. Very popular.

The first time I went I was on a date and all was good except we were seated near the hostess stand and the hostess was listening in on our conversation. We could then hear and see her texting it to other employees. We saw one of the text messages. Very unprofessional.

Thought we would give it a second go around. We made reservations for several people through Open Table for brunch. We showed up and the restaurant was closed! No apologies from anyone. Avoid this place.

Bavette's is an excellent restaurant with high quality food and very good service. It is a low key, cool spot for a great meal.
