Bastille is a restaurant that seems to be unsure of its identity. Fun local place that happens to serve French food? Inexpensive French bistro? Borderline fancy upscale restaurant? It has elements of all of these but no real cohesive feel. The setting is pleasant but a bit cramped despite the restaurant's huge size. Not kid friendly in the least despite the relatively large number of families in the area, they had one rickety booster seat with a broken strap and no other accommodations for kids. The staff are very attentive about the little things like refilling water, but there were still long lapses where our server was MIA. Enough of the servers have a the cold, professional air you'd more expect at a country club that it must be part of their training, and it really doesn't mesh with the informal restaurant in an informal neighborhood. While portion sizes are good, the food is pretty pricey. Fortunately the food is largely excellent, and the wine list is top notch. If the restaurant manages to work out what it wants to be and recenters itself around that idea, it could be a major gem. As it stands it's not somewhere I'd frequent regularly, but isn't bad for the occasional dinner or bruch if you're in the area.
