Best Steak, Salmon & Pasta in Bellevue!.
Best dinners in Bellevue on Friday & Saturday: Dalani is the owner/chef who serves the best tasting steak in town -- with delicious lamb shanks on the first weekend of every month. Her salmon is delicious. She also makes great pasta & crepes!
Lunch every day -- crepes a specialty.
Saturday and Sunday brunch!
This is my favorite restaurant -- and the best value in the Northwest!
Great Food but very slow. We ordered our food at 11:30 and didn't get it till 12:45. It's fantastic quality food but they are very slow. they have a very small kitchen and have 3 people working there so they can't keep up. They can handle only 2-3 table max at a time. Will definitely go back but won't eat there if it looks too busy.
The Shrimp BLT Is A Must!. I have been here for lunch three times over the past month and had the same server each time. I would describe him as polite but not in a position that matches his skill set. With that said, the food more than makes up for the miss on service.
Hole in the wall, small town atmosphere, with great food and beverage.. My wife and I restaurant a lot. This is one of my favorites. I see in other reviews, people complained about the service. Our experience is that the servers, of which there is usually only one, are relaxed and maybe still in training, but that's part of the charm. They are always friendly and accomodating, and not hustling you for a bigger tip. We've been there maybe ten times, always for dinner, and always enjoy the experience. The rack-of-lamb in incredible and reasonably priced. We bring family and friends. Sometimes, we're the only customers there. In fact, that part is a real enigma. I hope, selfishly, that they can stay in business without ever being discovered.
Great fresh food, wide selection, cozy and relaxing environment. My 10 year old daughter chose the restaurant, based on the name and her love for ballet. When she saw that the menu had cinnamon crepes, she was sold. My husband looked at the reviews before joining us for lunch and they were very discouraging. We decided to try it anyway. Our service was timely and very accurate. The food was amazing - fresh mixed green salad, wonderful shrimp BLT, flavorful omelet and the presentation of the food, especially the fruit allowed us to feel cared for. We don't eat out very often, but the next time we are in the area we would return without any hesitation.
Vibrant food, Dead Customer service.
On my first trip to Cafe Pirouette the food was stellar, but the service was lacking. The good food was enough to bring me back a second time- but the service was even worse; and was so bad that I will never return.
Our server (both times) was completely aloof. And (again, both times) incorrect orders were delivered to our table.
It is disappointing that a place with such potential for delicious food can be ruined by the lack of customer-service.
The worst thing is that, even when the problems were brought to the attention of the server and the cook; neither of them seemed to care. Why patronize an establishment that couldn't care less bout retaining business?
Great Food...Terrible Service. We have been here a couple of times, the crepes are amazing but the service is always slow and on occasion non-existent. The last time we where there it took 25 minutes to receive our salads and then when our order arrived it was incorrect. We had no luck flagging down our server and finally I had to go track her down. I advised her the order was incorrect and she gave me a blank look and said she would get back to me. We waited another 15 minutes to no avail and my girlfriend had to go track our server down again. She said that the cook suggested we eat it anyway and she would give us a 10% discount. So at this point, they had not even tried to correct the mistake. I told her that was unacceptable, that we just wanted our bill (for my coffee), and we were leaving. When she gave me the bill, she attempted to charge us for the food even though it was not our order. I left the money for the coffee and we left. I do not think I will ever return even though the food is normally fantastic.
Food looked great, wished we had a chance to try it.
We're on vacation in Bellevue and thought we'd try some place local for dinner. I prefer local restaurants to box restaurants. I found Cafe Pirouette in the Entertainment book I'd purchased.
We arrived around 6:30 pm. We were offerered our choice of tables and the waitress brought us water right away. The menu look interesting, with choices of lamb shank, veal & chicken saltimbocca, not to mention the selections of savory crepes. A little pricey, with most entrees at $18 or higher, but I'm willing to pay for good food. After the initial contact with our waitress, we saw her, but never at our table. She read a large order to the chef, cleaned salad plates, took someone their takeout order. She walked past us several times, but we couldn't catch her attention. Finally after 18 minutes of no contact, we got up and left. She looked right at us, but never said a word.
It's a shame really. We were hungry and looking for something intriguing, new & interesting. Instead, we got the cold shoulder.
Wonderful bistro. Love this little place!!! Have taken friends there and even my daughter. All have loved the intimate atmosphere! Tiny and unique. Great food, wonderful service, and delightful atmosphere. Good for friends or a date.
Terrific atmosphere. Great little place that I wish I had discovered years ago. Try Saturdays for an easygoing brunch. The crepes, although not really French, are tasty and host a great combinations of veggies and meat inside. If you do go in the morning ask for a cup of coffee, whatever kind of coffee they use is great, think its Italian. When its not busy the cook/owner will come out and share a cup of coffee for you, she's quite charming. Only one time did I have to wait overly long for my food; but it was irregularly busy and the waitress brought out pastries for me and my friend to munch on while we waited. This also would be a nice little date restaraunt.
