Burien >Bistro Baffi Italian Fine Dining
Best Ravioli. Amazing dinning experiance! The best ravioli I ever had!
Great Happy Hour Menu. My fiancee and I went to Bistro Baffi and were pleasantly surprised to find out that they were serving Happy Hour Menu. I had the most amazing pork tenderloin with wild mushrooms and my fiancee had spaghetti Stella with grilled chicken. We had a bottle of Stinger Zinfandel and our bill including the gratuity,still came out to less then $60. Thumbs up, great job!
We went to Bistro Baffi with hopeful expecations, in search of a truly wonderful Italian restaurant. After reading the reviews we decided to try Bistro Baffi. . . . . what an incredible disappointment. Frankly, we will probably never return. We had 7:30 reservations, and didn't have our drink order taken for 20 minutes. When our wine was opened, it wasn't even sampled - they just poured two glasses, the bottle was set on the table and the server walked away. Another 10 minutes passed before a morsel of bread appeared on our table.
We sampled the bruschetta - nothing special, lacked flavor and we asked for some balsamic to jazz it up a bit. For our dinner we had the highly acclaimed risotto and scampi with the "pink sauce". . . tasted more like chef boy r dee, and the prawns were totally overcooked. We also had the "veal scallopini saltimboca" STAY AWAY FROM THAT if you know what is good for you!!!!! For $28 it was a piece of overcooked veal covered with a chunk of rubbery smoked mozzerella cheese that overpowered any other potential flavor. It was a total waste of $120. We left and went up the street to the 909 and had some dessert which was delightful! Wish we had gone there for dinner. Oh well. . . . . .live and learn!
We tried calling you , but the number that you provided with your reservation is a non working number.
We regret that you were disappointed and wish that you had voiced your concerns to us while at the restaurant. The chef would have been happy to make you another dish.
We take pride in what we do.Our priority is always making excellent dishes and making every guest happy .
Please feel free to contact us at Bistro Baffi.
Bistro Baffi Rocks My World!. The service at Bistro Baffi is absolutely the best. It can only be topped by the excellent dishes served up by Chef Michael Vujovich. Everything on the menu is fantastic. I wait in anticipation to hear the nightly specials. Pick one and enjoy. It is always a pleasure to enjoy a leisurely meal with good friends at Bistro Baffi!
I dream about Michael’s Risotto.
16 years ago when we moved to West Seattle there were few restaurants and we quickly found our way to each. We called a new restaurant - the Beach House - and asked what kind of restaurant it was. Michael (the one man show at the time) answered “we are your typical neighborhood restaurant”.
We hiked our way down to the Alki and came to understand Michael’s meaning of neighborhood. His was not a typical U.S. “neighborhood”, but one that had the true European sensibility. Michael and Dinka are gracious hosts and their staff is well versed in attending to the details of creating a fine dining experience but with the warmth of a local neighborhood feel.
We were pleased when Michael reopened with his second restaurant south of us in Burien. While it is further away than a stroll through Schmitz Park, it is still one of our favorite restaurants to share with friends or family or for a romantic evening. The food is exceptional and Michael’s kitchen is always willing to make accommodations for special dietary needs.
Dale is addicted the Michael’s Risotto con Pollo e Fungi and although I love wandering around the menu, I have a fondness for the Penne Arrabiata (great spicy kick), the Lasagna Napoli (never had better), and any of Michael’s fish dishes. For those who don’t tolerate wheat, pick any risotto and make sure you check out the flourless Chocolate Walnut Cake!
WOW!!!. Oh my !!!! I just got home from eating out at bistro Buffy WOW! The food is amazing !! And the people are so friendly and on top of things for sure …. I never needed anything, it’s like they are one step ahead of you in things that you might need …2 thumbs up
Hidden gem in Burien. We had one of those meals on Saturday that we are still smiling about on Wednesday. We started out with clams Rockefeller from the evenings specials that left us sopping every drop of sauce from the plates with our bread. My date had a steak wrapped in prosciutto that had the most amazing flavor. It was literally better than the steaks we had at El Gaucho a couple of months ago-- at less than half the price. The owner, Michael, makes you feel like you're having dinner with his family. This was our third visit and certainly not our last!
WONDERFUL!!!!!. We love the food, servce and atmosphere. The owner makes you feel welcome. It is amazing and we cant get enough, it has replaced our favorite restaurants. The bad news, too close to us and creates bad habits...
Excellent food and service!.
For those West Seattlites who remember "The Beach House" on Alki, this is Michael's and Dinka's place moved to Burien. While we still hate the fact that they moved away from our neighborhood in West Seattle, Lori and I still make the 12 mile trip to Burien for the delicious meals on a regular basis.
The atmosphere is quiet and upscale, the service is wonderful and friendly, and the food - wonderful.
Lori enjoys the Salmon on Risotto, I enjoy the Pasta with sausage, the lamb looks really good and we still haven't explored the full menu. The salads, breads and other amenities are fresh and flavorful.
Highly recommend the place for a quiet evening together or a celebration group setting. The wonderful and attentive staff can handle any occasion. A full bar and good wine selection only helps the celebration even further.
Hope this helps for those seeking another great place to enjoy the evening.
Doug and Lori
Unbelievable!. Hands down the best Italian food in Seattle. The seafood is amazing the food fresh. Michael makes your visit special. Make the drive! It is soooo worth it.
