Pssssst! Listen....this extremely good food. Beautifully conceived. Lovingly prepared. This is obviously run by someone who loves food. (Keep up the good work Michelle!) The blue cheese salad with hazelnuts, trout almandine, bourbon

I ordered a mesclun salad at lunch (NOT the 3 for $15 lunch). It arrived with yellow and slimy leaves in it. I pulled those leaves out and asked the hostess if the kitchen could make me another (this after she blindly stared at the offending leaves, like I was crazy to complain about them). A second salad came out, slightly better than the first, but still with slimy leaves in it. I asked the server Chelsea to take it back, and told her that I just didn't want to have a salad anymore. Three minutes later, the chef/owner (I think) comes out and proceeds to lecture me about how I should expect imperfect leaves in the salad because it's organic. I asked him if that includes yellow and slimy leaves, and he reiterated that it was organic, from a local farm, which he named. No apology from any of the staff, no offer to try to set things right.
I called the local farm later that day, and turns out they aren't even selling mesclun mix yet, it's too early in the season. Hmmm....
Chelsea never said "excuse me' when interrupting our conversation to take our order. She didn't give me a second or two to catch my breath when I first showed up before asking what I wanted to drink. (Hint, servers, don't ASK what we want to drink, make SUGGESTIONS, like iced tea, lunch cocktail, something....you're supposed to sell, not just carry plates). The hostess never smiled, no one ever smiled. They just seemed pissed off that they were busy (why, I don't know on both counts) and that we were a late lunch table with two women.
We didn't order cheap, we weren't rude, we tried to be reasonable. My bread and butter plate were never replaced after they took it away with the dead leaves, and we had to ask for bread and butter, for which they made us feel like we were demanding.
I sent the owners a letter that afternoon. It's been a week now. As they don't seem to care, I am now resorting to this forum. I will never go back again.
Thank you.

Pros: hmmmm

Cons: well, read the review

The only reason I came to this place cuz it was one of the "Best Of City Search" ... I didnt even know it was a French Restaurant until I walked in and read the menu ... Anyway, it was a great experience; I came in with my best girl trying to impress her, but not trying too hard, and it wasnt over the top, like some places in downtown Seattle.

The waiter treated us well; we came in on a Friday afternoon, we sat in a nice romantic seat in the corner away from the rest of the crowd; the waiter explained the menu, without trying to sell us something expensive ... we started off with some wine, just so happens it was 'happy hour'. We had the Mussels and Lentel Soup to start, my date had the Salad with olive oil n salt and Frites, and I had the Burger n Frites; and we finished off with some exotic cheeses; with some more wine ...

We had an unrushed and very romantic time ... we arrived at 150p and left at 410p ... the waiter was very accommodating n friendly; of course at that time, it was only 10 to 25% full ... If youre looking for a romantic date place, with good service n food?! ... definitely go at a later time so youll get the best service ...

Pros: Romantic Date Place - Good Service n Food

Cons: 2 Much French Words On The Menu

Owner would not honor gift certificate for $20 given for terrible service for a previous dining experience. Owner was very rude and has no concept of good customer service. Given these tough economic times it is hard to believe that a business owner would care so little about his customers. Not worth the money and should be out of business.

A nice reprieve from most dining options in Seattle. The service can be a little shakey but the food, decor, atmosphere, wine, drinks etc are traditionally excellent. They tend to use local ingredients so their menu changes often which is nice. 35th St. Bistro is becoming a classic Seattle restaurant and bistro. They have a new lounge which is ok - their dining room is where you want to grab lunch or dinner. I hear they have a very nice yet busy brunch on the weekend.

I was really excited to go to 35th St Bistro after reading the reviews, so I made reservations for my husband's birthday. I needn't have bothered, it was a weeknight and there were hardly three tables that were occupied. That is why I was so surprised when it took them 20-25 minutes to bring us bread.

The service was slow over all, but I didnt mind. It went along well with the music and ambience. Now the food- I ordered the beet salad which was good and my husband ordered the scallops which was flavorful. For our entrees, I ordered their pan roasted chicken.. it looked yummy but it was absolutely lacking any flavor. It was actually hard for me to eat the whole thing. I felt like I was eating boiled chicken. My husband ordered the rabbit which was just alright, again, lacking flavor.

And for dessert we had the fruit tart which was once again average.. Overall it was a disappointment. Totally not worth the $110 I spent on both of us. I saw a lot of people having their burger and fries.. maybe that is their specialty!!

Can we get more of these restaurants? What do I mean? Ok...they use way cool ingredients AND they make it taste really, really good. Great atmosphere, too - they take care of you, its great music, nice ambience - not trying hard to be cool / sophisticated / new yorkish in so far that they don't try hard at being cool - they just are..this is 35th st. bistro. They use locally farmed food stuffs. Nice. Their meat comes from pasture animals - no hormones or antibiotics. It's just nice. No hormones w/ that - thanks.
These are the types of places we need to get more of here. Grab their bistro burger - I got it the last time I was in and it was tight. My wife got the braised short ribs - quite nice.
They could turn up the music a little bit though. Other than that...spot on. Nice french bistro experience w/ some credibility behind it...

I went here for a romantic dinner last weekend and was pleasantly surprised from the beginning. We were promptly seated under the lit tree. The restaurant has a very warm cozy feel, alot of charm. I had the beet salad which was good, but I may have had overly high expectations from the prior reviews. My boyfriend had the tuna carpaccio which was flavorful but the olives completely overpowered the tuna. I HIGHLY recommend the Muscovy Duck and steak frites... they really know how to do the classics. My duck was so tender and had a wonderful sauce, the steak was very juicy. We had the profiterols which was average actually... i probably wouldnt order it again. Service was nice. Dinner for 2 was $92 before tip. 2 apps, 2 entrees, 1 dessert and 2 drinks. Very reasonable prices. Overall, i would definitely come back, great restaurant!

I thought the food was very average. One big yawn and bill. I wouldn't go back even if someone else was paying. Okay, maybe if someone else was paying.

The fries--excuse me, the "bistro frites"--are the stuff of fantasy, covered in creme fraiche, I could eat them all night. Them, and the cheese plate (huge, and with tasty things like chocolate shavings, jams and other treats along with 5 generous portions of cheese), and teh happy hour specials at the bar, are enough to keep me coming here long after I moved away from Fremont. But the dinner specials should also not be overlooked. They try to do organic and seasonal I think, and the results are always stellar--tender meat, perfectly cooked fish, a great bouillabaise--with affordable wines and really great servers. Totally dependable date spot or "meet the parents" night.

i went there for a friend's birthday. The food wsas cold after an hour wait. After talking with mgt. we were given a credit for $20 only! The total bill was over $150! My food was cold then reheated in a microwave! How is a restaurant still in business with these practices! I will NEVER go back. I highly recomend you do the same. I have never been so unhappy with service.

I've been there twice and I plan on going back as often as I can. It's absolutely spectacular. The menu changes but you really can't go wrong. The Oregon Lamb Flank is sensational and the creme brulee is wonderful. The atmosphere is very warm and comforting, you feel like you're in Nice. The service is wonderful except be sure to not be in a hurry, it's a traditional, European sense of dining.

We came in at 7:00 without restervations and lucked out with one of the last tables. We had great wine picked out by our server and enjoyed everything! My boyfriend ordered the Chicken and was an excellent dish!!! The duck was fantastic. However the best thing of the night was the Beet salad different and very light. I could eat that dish everyday!

Thanks to the 35th street Bistro!

I've been coming to 35th St. Bistro for a little more than a year now but have never bothered to write about it.

I love the place!!

From lunch and brunch to dinner and "in between" it's all great! This is one of the few spots in Seattle where I can take a client, a date, or my mom! I've loved getting to know a few of the friendly faces there and and also getting to know the menu since I moved to Fremont. As the season turns to fall, I just know that they will change along with it. They use local and organic ingredients whenever they can, and trust me, it shows.
You can go get a bowl of soup and an iced tea at lunch for under ten bucks, or you can dine with reckless abandon and have an amazing night with wine, cheese, adventurous entrees and some of the most fabulous desserts this side of Coco La Te Da (R.I.P.)

I'm glad its only a few blocks away from me, but I would travel across town to eat at 35th St. Bistro!

My boyfriend and I cannot figure out how the 35th Street Bistro did not win the Best Breakfast in Seattle! I LOVE their eggs benedict and bellinis & bloody marys to drink. The croque madame is also fabulous. We haven't had anything there we didn't like. If you love breakfast/brunch, try this place! It is seriously better than many of the restaurants on the "Best of Citysearch" list for breakfast-- and believe us, we've tried (almost) every one!

After moving to Fremont recently I have been anxiously awaiting a dinner out with my boyfriend in our new neighborhood. The bistro had been catching our eyes. We arrived early for our reservation and anticipated a wait by the look of the full dining room. Welcomed to the bar to wait we were barely half of the way through our drinks when our table opened up. (the ginger mohito was amazing!) We started with scallops that were seared just the way that I always try for but can never get that perfect, then the best beet salad I've encountered and then onto the ahi tuna dish that I had never had anything like before. Delicious! My boyfriend equally enjoyed his selections and the wine list was full of great picks with very friendly mark ups. The service was warm and welcoming. We are so happy to have them in our neighborhood I will be in for brunch tomorro!

My husband and I went to dinner at the bistro last night and had a fantastic dinner. The grass fed grilled ribeye was amazing and so was the seared scallops and ahi two ways. It was our first in and our server was so wonderful at helping us navigate the huge wine list, that has great values of hard to find wine. The space is open and inviting although it can get a little loud inside at times. I can't wait to go back and try lunch as well.

I SO wanted to love you, 35th Street Bistro! You're in my neighborhood - one that desperately needs a great bistro. I've been there 3 times. The first was really quite good, and the service was just fine. The 2nd time, the service was so bad it has turned into a running joke with my neighbor and me. The waiter did not apologize and acted as if we were the problem (silly us - wanting our food within an hour of finishing our salads). We expected perhaps a glass of wine or dessert to acknowledge the disaster of a meal - but nothing. I thought I'd give it one more try - maybe it was just that waiter on that night - but the last time, the wait staff were so busy talking to each other that I barely got the time of day. The food is good, the portions are small (what most places would call small plates) - this is OK as long you understand what you're getting. What a shame - I so wanted to love - or even like - you.

I admit I had a soft spot for the former Still Life Cafe and had therefore been avoiding it's "new" incarnation as the 35th Street Bistro. But I still approached with an open mind when three of us decided to try it as part of the "Dine for Darfur" charity event (where 25% of proceeds would go to Mercy Corps). Anywoo -- we had reservations but one of our party was late. The waitress stopped by and check in and we told her we were still waiting for one more person. He arrived 5 minutes later at which point we waited OVER 20 MINUTES for her to come back to our table. When she did finally return she asked us if we had "had time to look at the menu" -- we almost laughed at her. Why yes, we had almost half an hour to practically memorize it! I had to prompt her for the specials. We then ordered everything at once for fear of her not returning, including two appetizers, cocktails, and our three entrees. Yes, we were practically the youngest people there (~30 years old) but we didn't deserve our server's disdain (i.e. 'putting up with us' like we weren't spending enough money). The appetizers were good (fries and mussels). My friend's roasted chicken was also good. BUT my asparagus ravioli was so salty I could barely choke it down. The sauce was way too thick and congealed before I could even finish it. And they overcharged me on it! (only a buck, but after everything else I couldn't help but be annoyed). Whenever our waitress stopped by (rarely) she hardly made eye contact. NEVER asked if we wanted refills/more drinks. We were too disgusted to try dessert. And there was no mention of their participation in the charity event except for a small flyer at the front desk that I noticed on the way out. Way too expensive for the ok food and RUDE service. Won't return with all the other great restaurants to try in the city! Ambience is nice and the appetizers/salads seem good. But it doesn't make up for being treated that way and for the terrible entree I was served.

Small space, but very friendly - both the atmosphere and the staff. Nice selection of wines on the list - several wines by the glass. The lunch menu has comfort food classics like a Kobe Burger with Pont Bleu and a Bacon, Lettuce and Avacado sandwich along with salads, quiche, etc. Fairly light options. Desserts were also good and the overall experience was top notch. I would definitely recommend the 35th Street Bistro to anyone looking for a casual place to dine in Fremont. We didn't have a problem getting in without reservations at lunch and dinner during the week but I've seen a line outside on the weekend.

After visiting the 35th St. Bistro on Saturday, I cannot wait to go back. The atmosphere is quite charming with high ceilings, dim lighting, white christmas lights, and a central tree (I know it might sound a little dorm-like..but it's really very enchanting). The waitress and bussers were professional, yet very personable. ...and the food! The food was delicious. I especially recommend the pear salad, smoked duck, and baked white shrimp.

The atmosphere is quite charming with high ceilings, dim lighting, white christmas lights, and a central tree (I know it might sound a little dorm-like..but it's really very enchanting). The waitress and bussers were professional, yet very personable. ...and the food! The food was delicious. I especially recommend the pear salad, smoked duck, and baked white shrimp.

Pros: Prompt Seating, Nice Wine List, Delicious Food, Charming Ambience, Wonderful Service

.

I thought this place was going to be really good, but then, I was WRONG!!!! So, we got seated promptly, which was good. But, I should have known to walk right back out when I had noticed that it was empty on a Sunday morning for brunch. We waited about 10 minutes before we were greeted by our "server" and once she did that she excused herself to take an order of another table. Then she came back. Took our drink orders, and food order. I asked to make sure my eggs were OVER HARD, she repeated that and said with a smile, "absolutely." We then sat there for another 10 minutes waiting for our drinks. I watched her take them (drinks) to another table, chat it up with the people sitting there, then proceeded to spill one of the drinks on the customer. We finally got our beverages. Another 30 minutes went by, while waiting for my food, I overheard another server making an excuse as to why this person got a peanut butter sandwich with a side of pasta. As if it were the customers fault. I finally got my food. It looked great. I cut into my eggs and yolk juiced all over. I asked for my server and told her I asked for them to be over hard. She looked at me with disgust, removed my plate, and sighed. Another 30 minutes later I got my food. It was cold and kind of gross. I heard the other server talking to another customer about how these other people were complaining about the "peanut butter" sandwich. I wanted to leave right then and there. After all said and done I walked out of there very upset, and annoyed. I am a server, if something happened like that to me, I would "comp" them and apologize. I guess that's the difference between "good" service and HORRIBLE service. Save your money and time, DO NOT GO THERE!!!!

Cons: everything. the place should get new servers

Great Eggs Benedict---my poached egg was cooked perfectly. SImply put, a nice neighborhood spot for a casual meal. I haven't tried their dinner menu but look forward to returning after the holidays.

This is a lovely place for a long lunch or a little late night tete a tete. I've had a number of enjoyable lunches here, but was in tonight for a late dinner/snack. Very nice ambience, the Frites are definitely recommended and risotto had a rather remarkably generous amount of Chanterelles in it. Courteous friendly service. Definitely a nice place to know about, and good place for avoiding the chaos of Fremont while still being near the center of the universe.

With the intention of dining at the Asteroid, we stumbled upon the bistro because of its inviting decor, while trying to find a parking spot. We were seated promptly, with no reservation, and were very pleased with our choice. The cheese plate was beautiful, the honeycrisp pear salad was refreshing and the trout was cooked perfectly. The portions were were surprisingly generous. The service was a bit slow but overall freindly. We will be back.

Now this is a great restaurant. The food was amazing, the service was impeccable and it all made for an entirely enjoyable evening. I'd love to come back every week with a friend or just a good book, order a big bowl of mussels and a glass of wine and enjoy every last bite. I don't think this place could ever get old.

I'm not able to recommend many restaurants to my well-traveled friends. Most of the Belltown scene is all trend and no substance. 35th Bistro is a place I recommend to even the most jaded foodie I know. It has this amazing wine list and a well balanced menu that, for nearly every time I've been there, has been well prepared and delicious. I think the wait staff makes a pretty good attempt at being informed and seem to really be proud of their food. I think the lunch service is excellent and have stopped by several times after the ballet or a movie and found them ready to serve everything on the menu. I've read some of the other reviews here and won't disagree with another persons experience - but often times I find that I get what I bring to the table. If I'm in a good mood and ready to explore and enjoy the evening - the server and restaurant will respond. My test for 35th Street was to simply tell the wait person to "bring me whatever the chef would like me to have tonight." Putting them on the spot - and they delivered - translates to me they take pride in what they are serving. I like that!

Cons: parking can seem daunting on a busy Friday or Saturday - but there is a paid lot across the street

I can't get enough of the artisan cheese platter at this place--it is served the way I like it: TONS of cheese. In addition to the chef's selection of six, well-sized hunks of cheese, you are also presented with ample bread and fine fruit spreads and honey to pair as you see fit. Wines by the glass are decently priced and the staff is always more than helpful in helping one decide what would go best with their food.

Having moved to the Queen Anne/Fremont area this summer, I am still in the honeymoon phase of trying out all the local eateries. On my list for weeks had been Fremonts 35th Street Bistro, and perhaps my experience there last night suffered because Id let my expectations become too high. The space itself is darling, with high ceilings, eclectic wood furniture, and a large ficus tree central to the dining room. Water is served from unique long-neck bottles, and the service polite if not exceedingly warm. Unfortunately, the food itself turned out to be a disappointment. My escargot-puff pastry appetizer rated well in terms of snail quality but was overly salty. The steamer clams in tomato broth were decent, but the broths flavoring was rather non-descript. In fact, lack of flavoring was the key problem I observed at 35th Street Bistro. My trout was bland, and my friends steak au poivre was even blander (which is hard to explain because it was coated in black pepper per au poivre style!). Even dessert was a let-downtiramisu more closely resembled gingerbread layered with cheap white frosting, and the profiteroles were simply blah. Though we didnt partake in wine, 35th Street Bistro does have a sizeable wine list in addition to a full bar. I dont believe Id return for dinner, but would consider checking back in for drinks and perhaps the cheese collage.

I called this restaurant for a table for 7 on a Friday night - yes, the time of reservation was early but I was really expecting a No due to such short notice and size of party; however, to my surprise, they were able to get us in. When we got there at around 5:30/5:45, we were taken to our table in the 'banquet room' - really more of an alcove off the dining room, but a great little space and perfect for our birthday group.

I am confused about the other reviews here as to service. We were treated famously - and definitely no rushing at all, in fact we left at around 9:30 (not once did we feel like they wanted us to leave).

But there's not only great service here. The food really was very good and reasonably priced. We started w/ mussels (perfectly plump and not too briney), scallops (not overcooked at all) and frites (oh yes, those were some darn good fries). I had the wild boar, which was perfectly cooked to my liking and the flavor was excellent. Everyone else was very happy with their entree as well. The wine list is quite extensive with a nice range of varietals and prices.

I would recommend this place to anyone for service, food, wine and reasonable prices. Oh, and don't forget to save room for dessert!

It's sad but true that no matter how good the food is (the menu lived up to The Seattle Times glowing review), bad service will terminate any musings of return visits. I called the restaurant as we were walking down Fremont last Friday evening confirming that they could take a party of four for appetizers and drinks (10:40pm). The gentleman on the phone sounded delighted, but were greeted by a bothered server. There was another 4 top and a 2 top in the dining room and a fairly full bar, so I felt confident we weren't keeping anyone late (being a sensitive diner and former server). But when we got the "who's going to take that table" from no less than 3 roving staff members, I became nervous that 35th Street Bistro was not a good choice. We had to flag someone (anyone) down for an initial cocktail and consequently not offered another. The people in the bar appeared to be having a good time (and maybe more than one cocktail) but our lonely table sat, feeling a though a nuisance. The moules et frites were lovely, as was the calamari. Just the snack/drink/beautiful surroundings we were looking for. But until the staff has turned over and the owners hire professional servers, neither I nor any of my party will be in for a return visit.

Yesterday we went here for dinner based on the positive review in the paper. Unfortunately, we had a very disappointing experience. The food was cold, my wife's vegetarian meal had pancetta in it(!), and my salmon was undercooked. Add to the less than desireable cuisine, the restaurant's high ceilings -- voices echo so effectively here that it was nearly impossible to have a conversation with yelling. Save your money.

The 35th St. Bistro carries itself like a true modern French bistro, not a cartoon-rendition. Yes, the fries are excellent, as they should be, but so were our elegant salads and entrees, and the wine list is very carefully selected, with unusual, excellent options. The food, wine, and ambiance all work together for a dining experience we don't see many other places.

I rarely feel compelled to write a review, but after our excellent dinner tonight I thought I would share. Our server was (thankfully!) well informed enough to make some very credible wine suggestions that would accommodate all four of our appetizer and dinner entrees. Escargot -- so rich, so fabulous. I had the duck, which is generally really good or really bad. Excellent. Paired with a port wine sauce, purple potatoes and leeks -- just gorgeous. We also had the monkfish (perfectly done), the steak frites (in my humble opinion, best in the city), and the ahi tuna (a very "now" ingredient but prepared in a very unprentious, just damn good sort of way). A very well done meal that left me satisfied and didn't shock me when the bill came. Thanks for being an excellent neighborhood restaurant!

What a fabulous find we made last weekend. My wife and I stopped in casually late Friday night and had an absolute perfect dinner at 35th St. bistro. Very attentive, helpful service, fabulous food (they even were able to make a special crab legs appetizer for us on demand) and nice, casual ambience. A great date night location. Special attention should be drawn to the wine list as well, which we felt was quite extensive for a small restaurant. We'll be regulars in no time!

We tried to get in at 7:00 but they were "booked". At 7:00 they were only at about 50% capacity. In other words, they treat walk-ins better than people who make reservations.
The food was below average. We had pork and duck. Both were cold and VERY tough. We went to this restaurant because we were celebrating a special occasion and it had great reviews. What a disappointment!!
We do not recommend it and we will never go back.

What a find! The Bistro is set in a beautiful space that is greatly enhanced by a very interesting collection of art. The paint, lighting, and music are pluses as well. Our server was warm and helpful and the owner was an interesting guy to talk to. Even better than the excellent atmosphere was the food and wine. The food is mostly French-influenced, and is prepared beautifully. I had a lovely duck breast that was served with a nice sauce and good vegetables. The really unique thing about the Bistro, though, is its wine list. It has an eclectic selection of wines from France, Italy, Washington, Oregon, and California, and even experienced wine conoisseurs will be able to find surprising and interesting choices. Overall, a very nice, relaxed dining experience that was about people and atmosphere, comforting food and wine. Highly recommended.

The fries are good. That's about it. They were late seating us for our reservation. The complimentary scallops were not good, and then the owner ignored us when we were asking for the bill. We will never go back. Too many good restaurants to try and the food was just ok or worse for the price. (One good thing: the server was nice and cute and tried to make up for it.)

I enjoyed my meal. The value of the daily pasta is a winner. Lots of good fresh seafood, but the pasta was way overcooked. It was pretty much falling apart when you put your fork into it. The salad was good...but really...$7 for mixed greens covered with a mist of flavored oil? The wine list was good. I'll try this place again, but I likely wouldn't order the pasta.

Gourmet continental cuisine. Fremont needed a restaurant like this.
I'm not sure why someone commented the wine list was small. It was 6 times longer than the menu!
Our food was excellent, the service good. Great ambience and lighting.

This is a great eating and meeting spot. reminds me of the small neighborhood bistros in Europe. There is a bar for the martini set, but the wine list, though small, is very good and reasonably priced. A place where you can have a drink, glass of wine, dinner, and even dessert for two and still be well under $80 buck.

We went to the 35th Street Bistro earlier this week and were pleasantly surprised. My husband started out with a cheese course that was delicious. The presentation was well done and tasty. I had the organic greens salad that was also tasty. For my entree I had the Parpadelle pasta with chanterelle mushrooms that was just amazing! They chef didn't skimp on the mushrooms either and the sauce was simple and light. My husband had the ravioli and he loved it. For dessert we had the chocolate cake, with was good, but not great. I will definitely return. My only concern is that the service is on the slow side, but maybe the staff is getting used to the space. One suggestion: clear the dirty plates before bringing the next course.

You know that feeling, when you go to the bank, to suddenly find out that your branch has closed and has been replaced by a Starbucks drive-thru? This is nothing like that.

Sometimes change is desperately needed as well as welcome. When the owner of the Stilllife sold her Fremont location to concentrate on the U-district store, the hearty meal and good cup of coffee was difficult to come by.

The newest incarnation of the space that was once Stillife has been blessed by a tasteful makeover and better use of space. Owner Bob Day has retired everything but a few floorboards and the window bench, and replaced it with fresh, seasonal fare, prepared by proficient hands. He has crafted a user-friendly wine list as well. This isn't your old bank, but it isn't a Starbucks either. This is simply well-executed, casual, savory and sweet fare.
