    We came here for Sunday Brunch. Per recommendations online we had a reservation. It wasn’t so busy at 9:30, and still wasn’t full when we left. I was worried, as I’m used to Portland breakfast establishments having a line around the corner (literally). No need, the food was fabulous! I had the ricotta pancakes, they were so delicious. Service was stellar. We also really enjoyed the wild wallpaper mural. The prices were great, especially when you consider the quality. Highly recommend.

    Ben Paris is in such a prime location to sight see Seattle! The ambience is fun and energetic: the painted murals are some of my favorites. The service was excellent and there is nothing on the menu that is not simply delicious - you can't go wrong! Enjoy.

    Mostly tourists. Good service but food and beverages just ok and overpriced relative to other options. I would recommend for folks that are mainly looking for downtown locations without access to other areas.

    From the moment I walked in the door, everything about my visit was wonderful. The hostess who greeted us was very friendly and seated us quickly and went over the menu and Happy Hour with us. Our server was attentive at checking in, but in no way hurrying. Once we placed our drink orders (Sazerac from Happy Hour menu for me, Seattle Sour for my wife), they were delivered quickly and both were delicious. We then put in our small plate orders while deciding on entrees. They were delivered at a staggered pace which worked excellently, and every piece of food was superb. Once our entree order was placed, we had time to finish our small plates before they were served. The presentation of both entrees (Parmesan Risotto and NY Strip) were perfection. Once our dinner was finished, we were offered a dessert menu, the largest issue with it was deciding which of the options to order. Dessert was some of the best I have had. I will definitely be returning soon. If I have any regrets about this visit, it is that I wasn't adventurous enough to try the tasting menu.

    The waitstaff was wonderful, especially Wanda. The food was really good, the octopus was the best I've had, and I've had octopus many places in Europe and other restaurants in the US and Canada. This was my sister-in-law and her son's first time and they fell in love with Ben Paris! He had the fried chicken and couldn't stop eating it, it was so moist on the inside and crispy on the outside. This is a great place to meet family and friends for a delicious dinner (or lunch) at a very reasonable cost. Because of the high ceilings, the noise can get a tad too much. We have two suggestions, one bread should be served with the octopus, you don't want to waste one drop of that sauce, and two, serving spoons need to be given on all shared plates, we should not have to ask for them.

    Ben Paris had a nice variety with some interesting breakfast items. The ricotta pancakes with vanilla sauce were wonderful. The avocado toast was also good, with the pickled red peppers on it. It was a nice option for breakfast while waiting for Pike Place Market to open. We would do it again.

    Our family went for brunch on Saturday, and everything was wonderful as always. Our food was excellent. I had the baked eggs which were fantastic. I also had a side of sausage which was especially delicious with the side of dijon mustard that accompanied it. My wife had the burger (sans bun) and loved it. The kids had the Ben Paris breakfast and the pancakes and though they loved it, it was enough food that they couldn't quite finish it. Our server was thoughtful, engaging and provided great service along with the rest of the team. It was a bit loud but in a lively way and fine for brunch on a Saturday in Seattle. We will be back.

    We were seated promptly, and our server was funny and engaging. The food, overall, was decent. Shishito peppers were spicier than usual—could be late season or perhaps they had some additional chili flake added. The burger was good in concept, but was far too greasy—I couldn’t finish half of it and had no desire to take the other half home. Fries that accompanied it were quite good—hot, crisp, and well seasoned.

    Was very lovely at the beginning. We started the meal really amazing got a round of drinks and ordered our food. We ordered one appy and a main to share. Unfortunately it took 45 min- an hour to come out. As we looked around tables who placed their order after us have received their round of appys and then their mains before we received any food. As our server came over an apologized we could understand as we both have worked as servers before. When the bill was dropped off it took another 20 min for our server to come back. He had cleaned all of his tables and checked in with every other table except for us. By the end, we just felt forgotten about. It was our only night in Seattle and it was the lowest part of our trip… unfortunately, wouldn’t come again even though the food was really amazing (once we got it).

    We did the family tasting menu and overall, the food was disappointing. The best thing from the tasting menu was the bread, which didn't even come from them. Olives and Marcona almonds came out as well, which doesn't really highlight the chef, so that was interesting. Timing was a struggle, we didn't get the first real food until 45 minutes into our seating time. Then the rest of the food arrived pretty quickly, which filled up the table. The food selection was strange with a scallop crudo and a heavy mushroom risotto being served at the same time. Champagne was served in a wine glass, and the dessert macarons were stale. Disappointing all around.

    Ben Paris is an upscale restaurant with a casual vibe. The food is so well crafted. My daughter and I shared the mushroom hash and the avocado toast. The mushroom hash was not the expected hash. It came in a wide bowl with perfectly roasted potatoes and little beach mushrooms in a creamy mild mushroom sauce with two easy over eggs on top. You may need extra bread to soak up every bit of the sauce. The avocado toast was served with two crispy slices of bread with at least a half of an avocado mash in top with one-half perfectly cooked light hard boiled egg on each toast with a sprinkling of marinated red Thai chili that boosted the lusciousness of the avocado. Service was extraordinary since our server knew we were sharing we had extra plates and silverware and an extra napkin. I can’t wait to go back1

    Really appreciate you thinking of our service dog and ensuring there was a good space. There were no issues. The food was delightful and I loved that there was an option for everyone. We enjoyed the ricotta pancakes and should have gotten them as a French dessert! That was on us, not the service, he did ask us! Should have taken the recommendation. Still, plenty enough for two!
