I was over in the Lake Burien area and found this place... I'm so glad we decided to go down this street and find this place by accident. Was great food, very attentive staff. Really is no reason for me to fight the downtown Seattle

October 29th we had arranged for a party of 20 to stop and eat at Bistro Baffi before a 7:30 concert. The food was great but the following things occurred:

- We were never shown a menu
- After looking online at reasonable menu prices, all the choices that night (other than just pasta) were $30-$35 (we were told there would be a set menu but told nothing of the higher prices)
- Wine glasses were topped off when only half empty and charged as a full glass of wine
- We were asked if we wanted a salad with our meal (as if it were included) and then charged for it
- The 20% gratuity and a $2 credit card fee were lumped together on the bill (giving the appearance of a 21%-25% gratuity per bill)
- We were all made late to the concert because they were late in getting our food to us
- This was all pre-arranged; time of arrival, departure, number in party.
- Basically the food was great and the server was nice enough but we couldn?t enjoy the meal ? we had to scarf down the food ? no time for coffee, dessert ? and rush out of there.

I might go again. A small party would be fine. I talked with one of the owners Dinka, (who is great, by the way,) and she assured me she was working with the server who was in way over her head. No one was happy at the end of the night.

Wow! I can't believe the review beneath mine. That's shocking!! I've had nothing but great experiences at Bistro Baffi with Michael and his staff. They are very attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. Whenever we go it's for a special occasion, bdays. My 12 year old granddaughter even chooses to go here for her bday! Were greeted like long time friends. We like the banquet room where it's very warm and cozy. Kat has taken care of us almost every visit. She even knows our preferred drinks appetizers and desserts. They have great wines by the bottles and cocktails are DELISH!! We all ordered off of the specials trays! Absolutely A-MA-ZINGGGG!! The filet melts in your mouth and all the seafood is so fresh! Some would say pricey, I say when it's that good price doesn't matter =D Michael and his staff sang happy birthday with a tiramisu! All in all just a wonderful time to spend with your loved ones!

Had an all-round bad experience here in October: waited til now just because we were working with the owner to remedy the problem--to no avail. Group of 20, known to be arriving at 5:30 pm and NEEDED to be gone by 7 pm (symphony concert). 1. Never given a menu, only a HUGE list of options orally to the whole table by one waitress (hence no prices seen). 2. Main dish not served til 7 pm--most of the group shovels in the food or leaves most uneaten. 3. Wine was "topped off" when glasses were half full still (illegal) and another glass charged. 4. Quoted group grattuity of 20%--actual bills contained gratuities of 21-25%. 5. Online prices shown to be in $17-$27 range, while our group paid at least $30-$35 per entree. 6. When 7:20pm arrived and we were begging for our bills so we could get to the concert (one of the composers was in our group), at least half of the group arrived at the concert after it had begun. After multiple discussions with the owner (who had left the restaurant himself to attend his son's football game), the only remedy offered was a bottle of wine if we "stopped by".

My wife and I went to Seattle to visit a friend. We decided to try this place out due to the reviews. I was kinda leary at first from the place being located in a dirty looking strip mall.

We were in for a very plesant suprise. The staff was very curteous and friendly. We were seated right away and givin our drinks.

We all ordered a different plate and were amazed on how good the food was. The staff was very attentative on how we were enjoying our experience and brought us anything we asked for. I thought it was great to see the owner/head chef bringing orders out to tables.

The local food is always served in a fantastic way. We have had company parties, family dinners and frequently have gone on New Years and Valentines Days. We have take friends visiting town and never hesitated to send local friends or business clients.

The great wine recommendations always seem to match the food every time.

From the Beach Cafe in West Seattle to now Bistro Baffi for 20yrs Michael and Dinka have never disappointed in making the visit a great night out.

The experience of Michael the Chef is what's behind the quality of the food.
Professional, quiet staff know how to anticipate your needs. They don't come asking "How's you folks doing?" when you have a full mouth!
The wine selection is very good.
I have been there several times and I am not getting tired. Every time is a new pleasant experience.

I first went to this place off a Groupon. I am so glad I did this. It was hard to find or not hard but in unknown territory for me. It is inviting from the outside and the inside. It was delightful the way the specials were presented. The staff was extremely friendly. I spent more than the Groupon but it was entirely worth it. The different courses were not served too quickly - plenty of time to enjoy the meal. Each part of the meal just got better and better. It was so delicious. We shared a whole fish - an experience I never had the pleasure of enjoying. We are going back to try some of the other options. Lots of choices.

I ordered lobster ravioli because it looked so good on the plate the server showed us. My sister ordered fillet Mignon and we paired it with Super Toscano wine. Fillet Mignon was juicy and grilled to perfection( I had a few bites), but the ravioli "stole the show"! Alfredo sauce kissed with fresh truffles just did it!
I didn't expect to find a restaurant of this caliber at a strip mall in Burien!

What made this place so special is clearly, everything about it! It was challenging to find because it's tucked away in a somewhat residential area.
We were greeted like kings by a friendly host and given a table next to the fireplace. The interior is cozy, and elegant and yet it feels casual and unpretentious.For a starter we had baked baby eggplant that was stuffed with different cheeses and served on spicy marinara. It was luscious and gave eggplant a whole new trend! I was feeling like pasta but once the server showed us a plate with their daily specials, the real dilemma kicked in .I couldn't resist the fresh Alaskan halibut, which turned out to be a great choice. The halibut was fresh, grilled and juicy with roasted bell peppers and cognac sauce. I loved it ! My husband had the homemade pasta with truffle oil , wild mushrooms and Alfredo sauce. I don't usually care for Alfredo sauce, but I tried a little ,and it was sinful! The wine list impressed us. You don't find Vibreti Giovanni Barolos from 1990's very often on wine lists. The server informed us that they also had a rare Barolo selections from 1961. Now that's remarkable for a local Italian restaurant.
We "settled " for Tri Corno Super Toscano, which was suggested to us. It was thick and complex, with deep raspberry flavor and satin finish They don't have a sommelier, but I can assure you that their staff knows how to pair your meal with perfect choice of wine. Looks like the owner not only takes pride in serving phenomenal food , but he also seems to be a great wine connoisseur. We ended our meal with Tiramisu, which was light a delicious, a perfect end to a royal meal!

Having dinner at Bistro Baffi is always party time! The restaurant is beautiful and cozy. The aromas are deligtful. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Chef Michael waves from the kitchen while flipping the spaghetti and deglazing his pan. The food is full of flavor. You really have to try it in order to understand! And, the ambiance there is always fun and festive. I love Bistro Baffi, and you will , too!

I am not your typical food blogger, but I had to write this review! I had venison ravioli at Bistro Baffi Saturday night and I am still thinking about it. The ravioli were homemade and stuffed with venison and cheeses and baked in chef Michael's pink sauce,that I absolutely loved. The perfect union of all those wonderful flavors, made this dinner unforgettable.

Wonderful delicious food. Very stylish, upscale & clean restaurant with reasonable prices. Fresh food made from scratch. We had no complaints what-so-ever. Our visit was very enjoyable and we had a tasty dinner with excellent house wine. City Search voted Bistro Baffi the Best Italian Food Restaurant and it fully deserves this honor. We always go back to this place.

The owners of Bistro Baffi take their business seriously and clearly attempt to provide a selection of food and wine designed to satisfy. I was taken aback at the corkage fees but the owners dealt with my concerns and it would be unfair of me to discount the delightful environment and great food because of this. My sincere apologies.

I love this place. The owners, Michael & Dinka, treat us like long, lost friends every time we come in. The food reflects the spiciness of Michael's Montenegran roots, and we never have had a bad experience that way. His wine suggestions are never-fail.

The owners' enthusiasm shines through at this restaurant. You can feel the love that goes into their business.

Congratulations Bistro Baffi for winning the best Italian restaurant in Seattle.We always felt that chef Michael's food was the best Italian in the city , and were ecstatic when he opened his new restaurant in Burien. We used to go to his Beach House cafe on Alki for 12 years. Now we have to travel even less to enjoy his food. I love chef Michael's pink sauce, and I used to crave it tremendously when he was gone to Europe before opening Bistro Baffi. I like all his dishes with pink sauce , but my favorite is "Penne alla Mike". This pasta has scampi that are actually cooked in shell ( in order to preserve the flavor, as chef Michael explained it to me once), wild mushrooms and spicy pink sauce.
Last night, I decided to try the lobster ravioli with Alfredo sauce, lobster mushrooms and truffle oil. The ravioli melted in my mouth. The sauce was perfect, not too heavy, and the combination of mushrooms and truffle oil gave this dish several different layers of pure eating delight ! My husband had grilled Chilean sea bass , with sun dried tomatoes and cognac sauce. His comment suggested that fish like this, one can only find in Italy or Greece. "Pure heaven" , he managed to mumble between his bites. We had L'Ecole Syrah with our dinner , and that was a very good bottle of wine. As we were geting ready to leave, I was already thinking about our next meal at Bistro Baffi.

What makes Italian food do delicious? I asked myself many times, and I bet many people did too. Is it the spices, or the heart they put into cooking, maybe the Italian-it must come out good-spirit? Whatever it is, one person is aware of the answer, that is Michael.
If you love elegant evenings, spent in a very much European way with a glass of the finest wine, this is your place! The atmosphere is just amazing with all the warm colors, everything is so...personal! Isn't it a great feeling when the chef comes straight to your table, asking how you liked the ordered specialty? That's the way to go! That is exactly why I always feel like eating at Bistro Baffi! Not to mention the out of this world delicious meals.
If you found yourself hungry (rather than sleepless) in Seattle, do not hesitate to try this restaurant! You will love it, and you will get addicted to the tiramisu!!

We have visited Baffi about 5 times over the last 2 years, mainly to give it a second chance. After the last try in October 2009, there will be no second chances.

The food is reliably poorly cooked and poorly prepared. My ravioli were tough and tasteless, and the pesto (sic) wasn't even blended, just torn basil in oil. The chef uses his signature pink sauce (a mixture of tomato sauce and cream) on just about anything-the night we were there last, it was minced clams. Steaks advertised as strip loin are laden with gristle. On one visit, two of our party ordered lobster cakes that were so spicy hot that they were inedible.

Our waiter was so loud that when he entered the room talking about 'this gentleman needs a spoon and this one a fork and the lady needs water' etc., that all conversation stopped until he left. What still riles me is that he insisted on serving us appetizers we clearly did not want, and then charged us for them. One of our party did not even eat shellfish and gave it to another diner.

This is a neighborhood restaurant that should be a welcome addition, but regrettably the food quality and consistency are so poor that we have stopped trying.

My fiance told Chef Micheal that his Salmon was the best he had had in his 46 years of life. He has travelled the world, and has eaten at the best restaurants, so that is quite a compiment.
This is our favorite restaurant. This is the only restaurant where the Chef/Owner greets EVERY table, not just the VIP guests. Warm and welcoming!
Thanks, BB!

My fiancee and I went to Bistro Baffi and were pleasantly surprised to find out that they were serving Happy Hour Menu. I had the most amazing pork tenderloin with wild mushrooms and my fiancee had spaghetti Stella with grilled chicken. We had a bottle of Stinger Zinfandel and our bill including the gratuity,still came out to less then $60. Thumbs up, great job!

We went to Bistro Baffi with hopeful expecations, in search of a truly wonderful Italian restaurant. After reading the reviews we decided to try Bistro Baffi. . . . . what an incredible disappointment. Frankly, we will probably never return. We had 7:30 reservations, and didn't have our drink order taken for 20 minutes. When our wine was opened, it wasn't even sampled - they just poured two glasses, the bottle was set on the table and the server walked away. Another 10 minutes passed before a morsel of bread appeared on our table.

We sampled the bruschetta - nothing special, lacked flavor and we asked for some balsamic to jazz it up a bit. For our dinner we had the highly acclaimed risotto and scampi with the "pink sauce". . . tasted more like chef boy r dee, and the prawns were totally overcooked. We also had the "veal scallopini saltimboca" STAY AWAY FROM THAT if you know what is good for you!!!!! For $28 it was a piece of overcooked veal covered with a chunk of rubbery smoked mozzerella cheese that overpowered any other potential flavor. It was a total waste of $120. We left and went up the street to the 909 and had some dessert which was delightful! Wish we had gone there for dinner. Oh well. . . . . .live and learn!

We also had the "veal scallopini saltimboca" STAY AWAY FROM THAT if you know what is good for you!!!!! For $28 it was a piece of overcooked veal covered with a chunk of rubbery smoked mozzerella cheese that overpowered any other potential flavor. It was a total waste of $120. We left and went up the street to the 909 and had some dessert which was delightful! Wish we had gone there for dinner. Oh well. . . . . .live and learn!

Pros: focaccia and pleasant servers

Cons: everything else

.

The service at Bistro Baffi is absolutely the best. It can only be topped by the excellent dishes served up by Chef Michael Vujovich. Everything on the menu is fantastic. I wait in anticipation to hear the nightly specials. Pick one and enjoy. It is always a pleasure to enjoy a leisurely meal with good friends at Bistro Baffi!

Pros: Penne Arribbiatta, tiramisu!

Cons: Not close enough to where I live!!

16 years ago when we moved to West Seattle there were few restaurants and we quickly found our way to each. We called a new restaurant - the Beach House - and asked what kind of restaurant it was. Michael (the one man show at the time) answered ?we are your typical neighborhood restaurant?.

We hiked our way down to the Alki and came to understand Michael?s meaning of neighborhood. His was not a typical U.S. ?neighborhood?, but one that had the true European sensibility. Michael and Dinka are gracious hosts and their staff is well versed in attending to the details of creating a fine dining experience but with the warmth of a local neighborhood feel.

We were pleased when Michael reopened with his second restaurant south of us in Burien. While it is further away than a stroll through Schmitz Park, it is still one of our favorite restaurants to share with friends or family or for a romantic evening. The food is exceptional and Michael?s kitchen is always willing to make accommodations for special dietary needs.

Dale is addicted the Michael?s Risotto con Pollo e Fungi and although I love wandering around the menu, I have a fondness for the Penne Arrabiata (great spicy kick), the Lasagna Napoli (never had better), and any of Michael?s fish dishes. For those who don?t tolerate wheat, pick any risotto and make sure you check out the flourless Chocolate Walnut Cake!

We had one of those meals on Saturday that we are still smiling about on Wednesday. We started out with clams Rockefeller from the evenings specials that left us sopping every drop of sauce from the plates with our bread. My date had a steak wrapped in prosciutto that had the most amazing flavor. It was literally better than the steaks we had at El Gaucho a couple of months ago-- at less than half the price. The owner, Michael, makes you feel like you're having dinner with his family. This was our third visit and certainly not our last!

For those West Seattlites who remember "The Beach House" on Alki, this is Michael's and Dinka's place moved to Burien. While we still hate the fact that they moved away from our neighborhood in West Seattle, Lori and I still make the 12 mile trip to Burien for the delicious meals on a regular basis.

The atmosphere is quiet and upscale, the service is wonderful and friendly, and the food - wonderful.

Lori enjoys the Salmon on Risotto, I enjoy the Pasta with sausage, the lamb looks really good and we still haven't explored the full menu. The salads, breads and other amenities are fresh and flavorful.

Highly recommend the place for a quiet evening together or a celebration group setting. The wonderful and attentive staff can handle any occasion. A full bar and good wine selection only helps the celebration even further.

Hope this helps for those seeking another great place to enjoy the evening.

Doug and Lori

Bistro Baffi was highly recommended to me by my business associate, who had his Christmas party there. Upon arriving we were served fresh homemade focaccia. We had a hard time deciding between the specials, they had 8 of them. I decided to go with the wild white king salmon and my friend chose risotto with Chilean sea bass. For appetizer we had stuffed mushrooms that were served in a real spicy sauce. We decided to have bottle of wine , just to "dilute" the spices. The wine we chose was Bistro Baffi Villa Toscana. Even though we were full we decided to split the tiramisu. The server told us that if we didn't like it he wouldn't charge us for it. We loved the food very much but the tiramisu was the highlight of the night. We will definitely be back, and I am thinking of having my 50th Birthday party at Bistro Baffi.

Bistro Baffi was a hidden delight. Tucked back in the corner of a Seahurst retail strip mall, it is truely a gem. Warmly decorated inside, it makes you feel you are in a quaint and cozy italian cafe. Charming and friendly, the staff is welcoming. Your water glass is never empty and ever changing nightly specials are a real treat. The "pink sauce" is to die for, not to mention topping off your meal with a piece of tiramisu. Huge wine list.

I have only lived in Burien for 5 years, a north end guy all my life and a connoisseur of great dining and entertainment experiences, no matter where they may be. Seattle in general has many outstanding establishments. As a new resident of Burien, I found many nice eateries, but one stood out amongst all the rest. It was because the food and drinks were great, but what was even better was the personal, genuine touch given to the food and patrons by the owners Michael and Dinka.

Michael, owner/chef, is remarkable with his Italian charm and charisma. I have taken the time to read all of these reviews and find it quite amusing that so may people feel the same as I do except for one, the review by mireid. I have to question her agenda, sounds like a jealous restaurant owner. If she would have taken the time to read all the other reviews on Bistro Baffi, I'm sure she would have realized how silly it was to make the issues she did. Maybe she had a bad experience at Bistro, we've all had bad experiences at any given restaurant, but choose not to go back if unsatisfied to that degree.

Whatever her agenda, it has no merit with me, and according to alot of these reviews, no merit with them either. Once again, Bistro Baffi is our favorite restaurant in Burien and I highly recommend it. Check it out, all these 5 star reviews can't be wrong.

Bistro Baffi is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is consistently fresh, well cooked and seasoned, and just plain delicious. I highly recommend the risotto. It's made with a spicy pink sauce that is amazing. I like to order the risotto with chicken and wild fresh mushrooms and my husband orders it with prawns. We both leave very happy. The owners of Bistro Baffi have done an excellent job in transforming this corner building into an unexpectedly comfortable and enjoyable spot to have a nice relatively inexpensive meal. Micheal, the owner and chef, is a delightful character...he makes you feel like family, he truly appreciates you coming to his restaurant so that he has the happy opportunity to share his kitchen with you. We have shared Bistro Baffi with out-of-town guests who were very happy and impressed with our restaurant choice.

Pros: Grilled meats & fresh fish, amazing risotto, excellent herb bread, quality ingredients

Cons: not within walking distance of my home :)

I've been a big fan of Michael's food ever since he owned a fabulous italian restaurant on Alki. I was very sad when he closed it, but thrilled when he opened a place in Burien. I don't have enough superlatives to describe the food in this place, it's not only the best Italian food, but the best food I've ever eaten! There are so many favorites to mention: pasta Pescatore, penne ala Mike, salmon risotto....and ah, that Tiramisu, everything is so tasteful and yummy, you don't ever want to go to any other place to eat. This restaurant comes with the whole package: great atmosphere, super friendly staff, clean, impeccable place with artisticly done decor and above all, every meal is prepared with passion. It's a great place for parties too. Seattle is so blessed to have Michael in town, I just pray he keeps this restaurant for a long time. If you are planning to visit Seattle, this is your place! I give it kudos, two thumbs up and highly recommend it to even the pickest eaters-you won't be dissapointed GARANTEED!!!

January 20, 2009 - Likes it - Who would have thought in a hidden little corner of stores in the residential neighborhood of Burien you could find authentic cuisine of Montenegro. It's far from the over sauced plate of noodles found at most places that claim to be authentic. The fresh ingredients show through each plate. I can honestly say I may have had the best cut of pork I have ever tasted. I started off with the deep earthy flavors of the stuffed mushrooms with a pink sauce that was kissed with just enough spice to leave you wanting more. I finished up with a flaming shot of Sambuca and tiramisu and the only was to adequately describe this desert (that I have had a million other times so I know this one) would only be adequately summed up in a sound... Mmmmm. The charismatic chef Michael visits your table, has a welcoming and warm staff all the while in a quaint romantic setting. The list of wines alone is worth the visit.

We were happy to discover that Michael Vujovich had returned to the area with Bistro Baffi Cafe. The Beach House Italian Cafe on Alki was one of our favorite restaurants, and we were sad when that restaurant closed. The spicy pink sauce at the new restaurant is as good as ever. We keep looking for tiramisu that is better than Michael?s, but it doesn?t appear to exist. In summary, I would encourage anyone who seeks a romantic European setting to try Bistro Baffi.

Everything is delicious! The chef makes his sauces and bread fresh every morning. You won't be disappointed if you go here. It's seriously a gem in Burien. Also try the house wine. It's amaaaazing.

We have been regulars since this restaurant opened.........(have our own favorites in the pastas w / red sauces which they do a fabulous job with.) We travel often, especially to Italy where we have family; this stands up to the best. Anyone saying otherwise needs to reevaluate.... We say "great job" to the owners/chefs and thank you!!

Each meal is prepared with love and attention. The specials sound so good each visit that I find it hard to make a choice...I day dream about the food and only want to go there when I go out to eat. Sometimes I even get it to go when I do not have time or choose to go home to have dinner with my dogs! The wine is lovely too. The decor is warm and inviting. Even the restroom is pretty. I really like the wait staff as well. We go to Bistro Baffi for every special occasion that comes along. It is my favorite hands down.

For all of you who think this is the best Italian food in Seattle clearly we havent eaten at the same restaurant. Everything here from the dry tough steak to the various bland pastas to the soppy bruschetta with very dated cheese is strictly average and your pay for it big time. Drive to Burien for this? While visiting Seattle you "discovered Bistro Baffi"?! Dearly I hope you found something else worthwhile during your visit. You must be crazy. Stick to places like Salvatores in North Seattle or the Pink Door downtown or even La Rustica in West Seattle. Now those are amazing places vouched for by my guests from Italy and the East Coast. I wouldnt dare run them past a place like Baffi. Or even stop by my place where I can whipup a meal that would embarass this place.

Anyway I know the 4 other reviews I read were probably written by staff or friends and I admire the attempt this place makes at being decent. However as a 3rd generation Seattle native I know whats out there and dearly wish someone would come along and create some kind of decent spot in Burien. I keep hoping.

The food and service at Bistro Baffi is impeccable! Upon arriving, we are always welcomed and treated like family by Chef and owner Michael, who enjoys "making the rounds" and interacting with his guests (a special treat).
His latest menu addition, Pumpkin Ravioli ,is perhaps, the best thing I have ever eaten. We have taken many of our friends and family members there and always have a great time!

Bistro Baffi is my favorite restaurant. This is where I go when I want to feel great. There is nothing less than superior about this place. I am a frequent visitor and can speak to many meals on the menu. l still haven't had an average meal there, the dinner always exceeds my expectations without fail. Food is delicious and fresh, the interior is warm and pleasing to the eye, the staff and the owners are wonderful and friendly. This is simply a place where you will feel re-energized and satisfied. Give it a try, it's only a short drive from Seattle and well worth it considering that it not only compares to major Seattle restaurants, but well surpasses them in quality and atmosphere.
