I had book this as a special evening and made note in my reservation that it was my wife’s birthday. I have been to Bakes several times and the service and attentiveness was the worst I have ever had. There was no mention of my wife’s birthday and we had to constantly float down our server for napkins, silverware, drink orders, food. Even had to ask twice for the check. We were so looking forward to the evening and left early because the evening was such a disappointment. We wanted to order dessert but we were having to wait so long we just said forget it and left. So disappointed that no one ever looked at the reservation or paid any attention to the specialness of the evening.

We actually had a party of 10 (2reservation) two tables next to each other, in-laws /parents at one table children at other table, all children over 40 😬 worked out beautiful! We sat at outside patio but unfortunately I got chilled to quickly. Our Server was great!! Menu had good selections for me being GF. Music was the best! First time at “Bake”, can’t wait to visit again.

Our server, Eric, was fantastic! Very personable, efficient, helpful, positive attitude. We dined outside then had drinks inside listening to the jazz duo, which was lovely. Overall a pleasant evening and we are planning to return and have already recommended Bake's to friends! Thank you!

The band was good, the venue itself is great but the service was poor. The server did not come back and check on us, did not bring what we asked for, and had to be flagged down several times even though they were standing by the bar doing nothing.

Mark Dufresne Band was great. Thoroughly enjoyed them. The Manager was very accommodating and even helped out on the floor with service. Our waiter was very nice and friendly. He could have checked back more often to see if we needed anything. Food was ok. The hummous was bland, but the Thai Chicken wings were really tasty. French fries could have been crispier. Little soggy. Overall I really like Bake's for an intimate place to hear good music and have food and drinks at the same time. Acoustics are very good.

The dinner reservation was scheduled for a Birthday. The wait staff acknowledged it was a birthday dinner, however...nothing came in the way of cake or candle. We would have paid for it, had there been an acknowledgment. Thank you!

I have to say I was disappointed in the "show menu" concept. Not the food itself, my meal was fine. But the fact I could not order some of my favorites from the standard menu- like the burger, and the duck tacos. I don't recall this being the case in my previous visits.

I was pleasantly surprised that there is such an amazingly beautiful dinner/entertainment experience nestled in the heart of Bellevue. Easy access off the freeway, lots of parking, affordable, friendly and fun!!! It was so nice not having to go into Seattle. Chris - one of the owners, was amazing and very accommodating at all times, food was delicious and the entertainment had us rocking all night! I would recommend to all! 10 out of 10!!!

We were disappointed that the full menu is no longer available on a Saturday night. The abbreviated "show menu" choices are too limited (no scallops, duck, caesar salad), and most entrees either had chili peppers / chimichurri / curry in the ingredients, which not everyone can tolerate. Bring back the full menu please!

We went for the Whiskey tasting, which was good. Bakes had a representative from the featured distillery who provided the backstory to this new branded Whiskey and its parent company. We enjoyed the tasting, the information, and as always, the food and live music.

Amazing! Not crowded at all. Two Tone Blues featuring Tommy Wall were performing. They have a soulful and powerful voice and were playing their guitars phenomenally. The staff was very attentive. We enjoyed our evening here relaxing on our drinks, relishing the delicious small plates of food, and listening to outstanding blues music.

We ❤️ Bake’s Place, however when we pay for a concert we want to listen to the music. Unfortunately other guests think that talking over the performers (really loudly) is okay. People, go to a coffee shop or bar to talk, not a music venue!!!!

The ambiance can't be beat, especially in the spring and summer when you can be outside on the patio. We love the live music and variety of talent they have in. The food is it and miss. Sometimes everything is amazing, and then there are certain nights that every one at the table is less that impressed (and we are generally very easy to please). The service has always been great. The manager, owners and wait staff are always very friendly and helpful. We really really like this place.
