Was passing through on my way home from Detroit and decided to make a stop at Bastone to check out the place, as there beer is quite wonderful.

Bastone had a nice atmosphere to it, in which it would be a great place to stop in for lunch or dinner, or just sit at the bar and have a round with a few friends. The place seemed a little more upscale but a wide arrange of people were present.

The quality of the beers were excellent as they were the previous few times that I tried their beers at beer tasting festivals. I ended up having the sampler which had the following beers:

American Blonde, Pilsner, Wit, Dubbel, Triple, Dunkel,Brown ale

All, except the Dunkel, were excellent and represented their styles well. The Dunkel had a off taste to it but may have just been at the end of the barrel or an off day or something. Highly recommend this beer.

The service on the other hand was a different story. The bartender started out well by presenting the different styles of the beer, but after the initial approach he seemed to disappear. The bartender that was there with him, also at times disappeared and left the bar unattended for periods of times. I'm not sure if he left or? but we never saw him again, and the other bartender only acknowledged us once, in which we were pretty much at the end of our order. We sat there another 20 min waiting for her to come back over to deliver the bill, in which she handed it to us and practically wasn't interested in helping us. I'm sure it may have been a off day but we weren't pleased.

Ended up not trying the food being we already had lunch for the day. Quite a few people were eating though and there was a nice selection of food available.

Overall not a bad place and was enjoyable, for the most part. The next time we return I hope to try some of the food out and look forward to what additional styles will be available. Bastone is pretty easy to get to and is right on Main st. (1,943 characters)

Great Belgian inspired beers in a hip atmosphere. Pretty good food, great belgian frites with a variety of dipping sauces. In Royal Oak, so expect a wait during peak dining times. Nectar De Dieux is a great tripel. Award winning brewer. (240 characters)

Beers littered with off flavors. I am perplexed as to how they have won so many awards. (87 characters)
