The food is great, but the service is terrible and ruins the experience. It's really sad because this was our absolute favorite restaurant under the old ownership, but we've had multiple bad experiences since they sold, most recently when our group of 10 went in for a birthday reservation a few weeks ago and (no joke) waited an hour and a half before our orders were even taken. We were completely ignored. We sadly won't be going back.

I live a half a mile from this restaurant but hadn't gone yet. Everything was amazing. We went early so we got right in. The ambiance is very comfortable and chic, the service was amazing and the food was fabulous! I went with my mom and she got the filet mignon - I got the eggplant parmesan and we started with the caprese. We also had a house margarita and prosecco. (Thursday nights is half off bubbly drinks ?). I asked the chef to come out to give him compliments. I don't do that often, but everything was perfect. Amy was our server and Beto was the chef. Clearly if you've read this far, you will know that I 100% recommend Bistro Baffi!

The food at this restaurant was very tasty. They have lots of vegetarian and vegan options. The service was also exceptional. I would recommend anyone in the Seattle area to come have a meal here for good Italian food.Food: 5/5

The decor inside is very cute, is great for say a date night or dinner with a friend. The service we received was very off putting and minimal. Our server didn't say hello, introduce herself, or say anything other than "mhmm" once while taking our order. Our cokes were also flat. The bruschetta was very very dry and thick, making it difficult to eat. The caprese was very good. The mac and cheese bites were mediocre. The margarita pizza was not great, the dough was 75% cooked, so it was very doughy along with not a lot of flavor. The best part of the meal being sliced tomato and cheese is unfortunate. Unlikely to return. They also include the merchant processing fee to your bill, which is weird since no reputable businesses do that. I wonder what were to happen if I wanted to pay cash.

OMG what great food. Stuffed mushrooms the best I've had. The servers were so polite and fast paced. The atmosphere in this place very genuine. Just an overall great experience. I recommend this to anyone 10/10.Food: 5/5

When this first opened, our first impressions were mediocre food at a high price point. This is not uncommon in our area.This food was either bland or gamey. Good bread, great margaritas. Service is always wonderful.We noticed that they have not been getting a lot of business so we decided to give it another shot. They are trying and food is improving.


Service was great! Very friendly staff. Food was very tasty and we enjoyed our anniversary there.


Couldn’t have asked for a better experience! The food was delicious, waitress was welcoming and efficient. We will definitely be back!

I have traveled for a living now for over 20 years, including 40 US States and 26 other countries. The one thing that stood out beyond everything was the variety of flavors and food around the world. I look for local more family owned places because it's normally unique and a different flavor of something you know. I ordered the Lamb Risotto for dinner, and I cannot explain the flavors and how well cooked the lamb in a amazing presentation with impeccable service! The owners created a good vibe and ambiance for a great comfort meal cooked from scratch for each order. If you are near, give this place a chance.

Nice little Italian place. Our first time there. Only three stars, Server forgot the sauce for my appetizer and failed to place my wife's alternate dessert choice on the order, resulting in a long wait for 4 thin pieces of asparagus.Food: 4/5

This one of the best and most authentic Italian restaurants I have attended.

Had our Anniversary dinner there, everything turned out great. We will be returning!


Good food, portions are reasonable for price. Sitting outside was a bit noisy due to traffic.


Sitting outside was a nice option. The food was okay. The lemon gelato was good. They seemed short staffed.
