La Bete is about cooking the food that we like to eat without pretense or limitations. We want to showcase the bounty and beauty of the Pacific Northwest while building a sense of community in our neighborhood and local food scene.
Pork rinds and churros are magical.
Word on the street is the burger is superb
Not my favorite, but then again, I'm not fond of overpriced creamy French not so flavorful food. Good for groups.
Get the pork rinds to start.
Recommend the Champs Élysées, Star Gazer & Game. Pork Belly "Pozole Rojo" was phenomenal!
You can get every wine by the glass and its priced at the same rate as if you are buying a bottle, nice touch!
Customer service seems to have slipped since we last visited
La Bete is going to close it's doors on Aug 16, 2014, and will be replaced by something new by chef/owner Aleks Dimitrijevic.
Brunch is chill and delish!
Paparadelle pasta with braised beef tongue is awesome!
Cocktails, pork rinds, and waffles. Any meal is incredible
The Oyster are a must... I think they were the special not sure regular item on menu... Olive Oil cake is a nice touch to end.
Maybe on par with Altura; definitely one of the best restaurants on the hill.
Mediterranean chicken wings, heirloom salad, beef kebab, panna cotta, crepes...everything we tried was wonderful.
Absolutely delicious French food. Make sure to get the bacon-wrapped rabbit.
Almost everything I've ever had here was good. Check out the art. Some of it is by the owner and one of the waitresses Anna.
Monday nights pop-up Middle Eastern restaurant is amazing. Stuffed zucchini and smoky eggplant dip were my favorites.
Service sucks. Literally all the tables got water bottles, I didn't. Racist maybe?
Brunch with.... pork rinds. Don't judge me!
Duck terrine was excellent. I had a merguez sausage special that blew me away with flavor.
If you sit at the bar open the egg for a tasty surprise!
The mushroom bread pudding is amazing.
The rabbit tenderloin special was alright. Try Local 360 in Belltown versions.
Try vegetable fritters, mushroom tart, trifle, salted chocolate caramel tart -- oh just try everything.
Order the Star Gazer.
The lamb is a must have not to mention the chocolate salted caramel tart. OMG! So yummy. Sit at the counter & introduce yourself to Manu or Monica "in the middle". Either one will take care of you.
Skip-chicken wings, beef shank, duck breast Order-fingerling salad, mackerel, banana split
Old fashioned is too watered down. Hendricks martini (with a cucumber) hit the spot.
The stallion was interesting and worth a taste. Not particularly strong but good. The salumi plate was worthwhile although the chutney is super sweet and a bit much. Great atmosphere and friendly staf
Great pumpkin pie right now. And leg of lamb is delicious as well
Excellent cocktail menu
