    We have been to Ben Paris multiple times and it has always been great. However, for Thanksgiving it was PERFECT! It felt like you were at a family Thanksgiving dinner. The portions were more than generous and served family style. The staff were so friendly, welcoming, and timely. We go out for almost ever holiday meal and this was by far the best we have had.

    We had a fabulous Thanksgiving meal. The food was amazing and those pecans bars were better than I've ever had. Wanda was an attentive server and took great care of us. She even boxed up the leftovers after each course so we are still enjoying the food!

    My wife, 1 year-old, and I traveled to Seattle for Thanksgiving and found Ben Paris while looking for a place to have Thanksgiving dinner. It exceeded our expectations. We travel a lot, but are still somewhat new to traveling with a baby so it’s always nice when the staff is accommodating to babies/children. Our waitress went above and beyond to ensure that we had an enjoyable experience. The food was indescribable - it was traditional food with a unique, flavorful spin. The ambience was perfect for an elevated, yet relaxed experience. If we ever find ourselves back in Seattle this is the first place we will go.

    Staying in the State Hotel, we went down to Ben Paris for dinner one night. I had the Butternut Squash Risotto and my husband had the Wagyu Burger, both were delicious. Drinks were good too, I had the Juice Box cocktail and my husband had the Can It Pale Ale, both were good. Our server was very good too. Would recommend if in the area.

    I first wondered into this place in desperate search for food in 2019. Since then I have tried to send everyone who would listen there, and have now crossed $1000 spent here. Sad to say, we will be taking a break from this place. Our "waitress" was having such a hard time with our basic request (asked for some Disaronno, help us all!). Burnt food.Where is all the wait staff? Proper bartenders? We have fallen in love each time we were here, had them fall in love with us. It was heartbreaking when we couldn't bring my stepson, not worried about it anymore.

    We went for a special family dinner - six of us- 2 visiting from Boston who were staying at the State Hotel. Very nice evening esp. since as a kid I went to the original Ben Paris on Westlake with my mom for lunches and fun to share that with the family. We googled Ben Paris so the family could see the old photos of it. Also very surprised to find Abeja wine from Walla Walla on the menu - one of the best from WA state and not often on restaurant lists. The staff was terrific from start to finish.

    Fries & burgers were good. I had the very expensive Halibut & the dish was too heavily seasoned & not good. Should have stuck with a burger...don't spend money on expensive food here...order bar food & you should be good.

    Appetizers were salty and soggy. Service was terrible- our server *forgot* to serve one of our entrees. When asked about where the missing food was we were told, “soon”. It never showed and we spent a precious evening out on the town waiting on food that never arrived. I will never go back to this place as long as air fills my lungs. Do better Ben Paris or you will be closed down within 3 months, maybe sooner.

    Ben ParisResponded on November 4, 2022Hello BetelBay, We appreciate you stopping in and allowing us to cook for you.

    Beautiful, hip, speakeasy feel…my specialty cocktail, the Gin Griffey Juniper, was just amazing from the taste to the gorgeous, over the top presentation. I would come back just for that cocktail!! The buttermilk fried chicken dinner with green beans and almonds was delish. Portions were generous. I would say that the service was a bit too laid back and rather slow at times. There was not a sincere greeting of warmth or of being present by any of the staff. Just a bit diffident. Not sure if short staffed, or…iNo seafood dinner specials were offered by our server, even though they were mentioned in general on the menu. I would suggest adding some kind of field greens (side and entree) salad on the menu.

    Ben ParisResponded on November 4, 2022Thank you for sharing this experience Knitbluedogs3! Sounds like a great time and so glad to hear about the amazing dishes you all tried out, not to mention the Gin Griffey Juniper, a true favorite around here. Appreciate your feedback about your arrival experience and will work the team to improve. Come back soon, we look forward to serving you again.

    A beautiful meal, maybe the best pork chop I've had in decades! The daily fish special was beautiful and tasty halibut! Lovely atmosphere, but a wee bit loud. Finely timed service, helpful and not cloying. Gorgeous, elegant dining room (that's not too fussy!) with stunning Kyler Martz mural. We'll return!

    Partner really enjoyed the Cobb salad. You won’t go hungry with that salad. I had the burger, which was som dang tasty, and the French fries that come with it are some of the best fries I’ve ever had. Worth breaking your diet for. The menu isn’t huge, but it is solid, tasty, and worth it. The room is very fun as well. The murals are a delight.

    Came into the city for an early dinner before seeing a show. When we arrived at 4:45, the place was pretty empty, but we were greeted warmly by the host and our waiter. Just in time for Happy Hour, we took a chance on the "tour of the menu" option and couldn't have been more pleased. So much food...and the flavors were out of this world! Seriously, after several awesome courses leading up to an entree, we enjoyed the best burger we have ever had in a restaurant. Go to this place...
