    We are in town visiting, and immediately this restaurant caught our attention. It’s aesthetically pleasing on the inside & quiet. Our cocktails were very good, as well as the octopus we had for an appetizer. Our server was very attentive and polite as well. We ordered 2 “small plates” and a pork chop for our main course. The small plates weren’t small, at all. Which is normally not a huge complaint but we had been munching throughout the day and weren’t overly hungry. The kale Caesar salad was delicious, as well as the truffle fries. My husbands pork chop was very underwhelming unfortunately. Half of it was fat, it seemed like a very low grade cut of meat. We ended up spending over $150, we love experiencing new restaurants in new cities and don’t mind spending that much for a meal that “wows” us. But this wasn’t one of those meals.

    Loud environment, hurried waiters…. And the fried chicken we ordered was supposed to have both dark and white meat. I got 2 backs, a drum stick and a wing. Where’s the breast?

    My husband and I did the tasting menu. Overall the food was very good (the hush puppies were crazy flavorful), but when you can add up all the dishes they brought us and it was cheaper by 25$ if we had just ordered everything individually it's a little disappointing. We do tasting menus a lot, usually they provide one dish off menu and that didnt happen. I also specifically asked to taste one dish and we didn't get it. We had reservations for 715pm and it took a long time to get service, the host ended up grabbing our drinks for us (which is awesome). We expressed our concerns to our server and he was amazing with his response and care. Overall, if you are looking for a tasting menu I would not try this place.

    I was dining alone; my experience started very well--I ordered the Seattle Sour drink, which was excellent, and started with the focaccia, which was so tasty! I ordered another drink and then the burger. That's when things went downhill. When I had arrived, there were several empty tables, but they filled up with larger parties. After he took my meal order, I never saw my waiter again, a tall, dark man who had been pleasant. But once he was assigned larger parties (bigger tips?) I didn't exist. My burger arrived; the fries were excellent, but the burger itself was so salty that it was almost inedible. I had no check in with the waiter and could not get his attention. I ate what I could, and another waiter took away my plate. It was another 35 minutes before I could get anyone's attention to get my check. My original waiter just ignored me while playing up to three tables with larger parties. Finally I got the attention of a man who had been seating people--he acted surprised at my annoyance, and then spoke harshly to a waiter who wasn't even mine--I felt sorry for him. I told him it was not his fault, but he was very nice. I know places are short handed, but my waiter walked past my table so many times and just avoided eye contact. He probably saw me as a minor tip as a lone diner. I liked the drink, but I would not go back again. So much for trying someplace new.

    Excellent lunch spot--very close to the Pikes Marketplace. Lots of folks were getting burgers, but we had the kale salad, burrata, and crispy chicken sandwich, which was plenty to share among 3. Highly recommend.

Cocktails are a must try. Don’t let the simplicity of the menu for you. Everything was absolutely delicious. We will definitely be back.

    Very good food, arrived promptly after ordering. We liked the ambience of the place -- open, big windows, bright light (Seattle Summer). HOWEVER: We walked in on time for our reservation. We stood at the front podium waiting about 7 minutes before someone finally showed up to check us in and seat us. The guy who finally arrived was apparently moving empty tables around in the outdoor seating area of the place, apparently not paying attention to customers standing just inside the front door and looking at alot of wait staff avoiding eye contact with us (obviously not there job to check us in, I'd say). When seated, we waited another *10 minutes or so* before waitress finally came by. Before she came, we sat there watching all he activity going on around us, seeing there were tons of staff in the restaurant. There was no apparent pandemic shortage of help, and the place was not quite full, several tables wide open. When the waitress did finally show up, she took our drink orders and handed us the menus. Drinks arrived pretty promptly. When the waitress served those, we had questions about some of the menu items ("what is dukkha?" -- "What is the cauliflower caesar that has kale in it-- is it mostly cauliflower or mostly kale?). She looked like a deer in the headlights, said she "should know that," and went off to ask someone more senior (I guess). The kitchen is an open one -- you can see what goes on in there. There was a cook with a headband and multicolored long hair hanging over the headband allaround his head. He was cooking stuff - hair waving over the food he was preparing. Then we saw him eating as he was cooking. Good grief -- don't show that stuff in an open kitchen. Get a hairnet, don't be chomping food as you prepare our food. But we all agreed the food was good, arrived promptly, well prepared. We liked our drinks too. The place just needs a bit of tightening up in customer service and kitchen hygiene to match the quality of the food.

    Really friendly, not fussy, service. My friends and I had the “Tour the Menu” which included multiple options from the cocktail bites, small plates, mains, and desserts served family style: highly recommended! The restaurant is rather cacophonous, so if you’re looking to have a quiet, intimate conversation, this might not be the right choice for you, but if you’re looking for truly excellent, innovative food, please come here!

    After waiting for half an hour, our server going back and forth without taking notice that we hadn’t gotten our food, we had to hail her and ask where our order was. She went and checked and when she returned she said our order was inexplicably lost. We told her to cancel our order (we had a concert to go to).

    We have been here before, about 2 months ago. I had the Mushroom Hash but this time it was different. It was still very good, but I missed the white mushroom cream sauce. The current sauce was orange and a little vinegar forward. Also, it would be nice if there were a couple of vegetarian lunch options, like a burger (not Impossible or Beyond, bit a nice bean, mushroom, etc.). I really want to try the fries, they look great.

    I was really impressed with Ben Paris. The menu selection is ‘down to earth’ but every component is highly sophisticated and well thought out, absolutely delicious. The service was professional and on point. The restaurant itself is handsome or chic (depending upon your perspective). The only downside is all the escapades of the homeless people outside but there’s not much Ben Paris can do to fix that. Overall I’m saying 9.7 out of 10! Do like we did and share a bunch of plates while you have craft cocktails, then move on to the entrees.

    Ben ParisResponded on July 6, 2022Thank you so much for coming in to dine with us and for sharing this review. We can't wait to serve you again.

    The beef burger was cooked to order and very tasty, tender, with great flavor with the red onion topping and brie. The duck leg was fall apart tender and rich, really lovely. The truffle fries were a great accompaniment and the focaccia bread was truly our favorite - soft and fluffy in the middle and crisp around the edges. Really delightful. Our service was outstanding, with our waitress anticipating our needs moments before we had to ask for anything. My companion and I shared every dish and our waitress had the burger cut in half for us, had share plates ready, and in general, took great care of us. The staff also gifted us with a special cookie dessert, in celebration of Pride Month and we were delighted.

    I remember loving their brunch before the pandemic but the quality of food has dropped a bit. I had the wild mushroom hash and the sauce taste like the chef forgot to uncap the vinegar bottle. Ingredients were fresh and they are at great location. I hope they can come back strong and make necessary adjustments.

    Food and service are great. Noise level is annoying. If the management would lower the volume of the background music, diners would naturally lower the volume of their voices. One has to shout to be heard. Consequently, this small and otherwise fabulous restaurant is not for a relaxing meal with friends. I do go alone sometimes, ideally when the place will be less crowded... and I am always made to feel welcome. My only criticism is that one can almost be guaranteed a frenetic experience. Not my ideal meal experience.
