Bastille’s ceviche, with a perfect balance of flavors, was perfect for lunch on a hot July day. The tuna “hamburger” was a tasty combination of tuna, quinoa, and chard and definitely something to try again. The service was helpful and attentive without being overly intrusive....More

We had a reservation for 4 and were seated immediately. The drinks prior to dinner were very good. Any questions regarding the menu or the specials for the night were answered immediately. The food was excellent. I can't wait to go there again.
