Elegant little Italian Seafood restaurant in a strip mall that was a pleasant surprise. It was a little price but very nice & made for an enjoyable evening. We sat by the fireplace which added to the ambience. We would return on a future trip to the Burien or Seattle area.

Our son and daughter in law who lives in Seattle took us to Bistro Baffi for dinner. The atmosphere was "old school" ,the service superb and the meal was out of sight. I had a risotto dish that was to die for. The wine simply devine. Would we go back? In a heartbeat. In fact we have now planned to... More

This is a great choice to celebrate a special occasion. It is cozy and candle-lit, a little gem tucked away in a small strip mall. The food was delicious, and we especially enjoyed the house pasta with pink sauce. Only two desserts, but both were house made and delicious, although the walnut cake was more of a sliver than a...

Went to have some Italian, but after seeing the fresh seafood platter I couldn't resist and ordered the spaghetti with clams, mussels, salmon, scallops and spicy tomato sauce. Absolutely the best seafood I ever had!! Fresh, flavorful and very generous portion. They have their own wine. I had the pinot noir and it was excellent. Great little place!

In selecting this restaurant from the parking lot I did not expect the elegant ambiance. The display of wine bottles, the Mediterranean art work transformed me into another world. The menu was astounding! I did not know what to pick. I choose the Gusto salad, that was very refreshing and light. The wild salmon with capers and white wine sauce... More

Everything here is amazing, but I assure you I will never be seated or served by that woman again. It was truly appalling how we were treated.

The first time was with a group of business associates.The food and service was OUTSTANDING. The wine, salads, entrees and desserts were excellent. The only issues were that they would only do one check. For those tracking expenses, that made it difficult. The other issue was that they advertise a 20% tip will be added to groups of 10 or...

Dinner was excellent. The location/look from the outside is deceiving-- when we arrived we were early, but the place filled up quickly and was full when we left. Bruchetta worth getting! Stuffed crab mushrooms (pictured) were amazing!!!

Pleasant, unexpected, culinary surprise. The creative menu, casual/comfortable ambience and friendly/knowledgable service made for an enjoyable family gathering. Our server was very helpful in describing the menu items and assisting in the selection of wine to accompany our meals. Prices are on the high side for Burien, but not inconsistent with the quality of the food and service. Good choice... More

We were a party of four for a late supper, and chose this place based on reviews and proximity to the airport. Service was a bit slow after seating but was excellent thereafter. The appetizers we ordered were excellent -- the steaming hot mussels could have been a meal. The entrees came quickly; pasta servings were ample in size but... More
