Ode' to the old hurricane – I once believed 611's coffee was the best. i told everyone but in recent days thier coffee quality has suffered a decline to the pits of downright nasty and they dont even seem to care.
I spoke with the owner margret and she seemed to care even less then the rude gratuity demanding troll who made the nasty cup for me and was too proud re make it. His name is justin the short bald insecure troll with too many tattoos as others here have correctly referred to him.
I was a regular customer but now its over. Apparently other functions of the owners business take higher priority over the quality of the coffee served and re makeing a cup is out of the question.
Seattle is the coffee capitol and we love our coffee, If you are my favorite place to buy coffee and you screw that up and don't even care enough to remake a cup that i payed for then its over ...
611 you might has well close the doors, you lose!
Get over yourselves! – I can't agree more with CestMoi08! The service is slow and rude. The crepes are soggy and tasteless. I went there with some friends and when we walked in and said hello to the two women who were working there, they ignored us. When we asked if we could have a table, one of them sighed loudly showed us to a table without saying anything to us or making eye contact. Really? Is it that hard to be pleasant? The food took forever even though it was a slow weeknight.
This place is not worth your time, unless you enjoy being treated like dirt by pretentious hipsters or if you're in the mood for a totally forgettable meal.
DO - NOT - WASTE - YOUR - TIME!!!! – I'm not kidding-- do not waste your time at this high falutin' dump. I went to this place ONCE when I first arrived in Seattle years ago, and I went again recently to meet some folks there. I hadn't planned on eating anything until we were told that we had to spend at least 10 dollars if we wanted to have an additional table for our large group. The waiter said that particular night was a big one for them and they expected to be slammed with a lot of customers. The only people that trickled in consisted of a couple here and there. And an occasional boozehound that sidled up to the bar for their usual. Slammed my a$$.
As for food, they are STILL disappointing! What a bunch of self-important fools. I am no longer astounded by Seattle's utter lack of taste in food and how people here will continue to eat uninspired food because the 'ambiance' might be right or it's the 'hip' spot to be. So the 'jambon' - the ham crepe was an embarrassment-- look, essentially the dish just consisted of what amounted to SLICED DELI HAM FROM A LOCAL DELI-MART WRAPPED IN A BLAND, DISEASED LOOKING 'CREPE'.
The short, bald, tattooed waiter was a rude b@st@rd -- his insecurity is apparent and shameful. Where are the standards in waitstaff? Why aren't the owners embarrassed to have a person representing them that has no class or tact? Well, what can really be expected if the food's lousy-- if you have no pride in what you dish out, I assume, you could care less about who serves the food. I am unsure as to why this is called a French restaurant. Seriously. Is it because they use French words to describe their food? French food is not that boring! My god! My god! It simply isn't. Here's what I?ve come to discover about this lovely land that is Seattle - if a restaurant feeds people who do not expect any better, then the restaurant really has no standard to aspire to. The audience/customers are grateful for any schlock thrown in front of them. Come on Seattle! Demand more! Demand better!
Terrible service – Not recommended, lousy service and they take pride in that. I realize this is capitol hill but it was ridiculous how we were treated. We had waited a full hour with out even having a waitress stop by, I finally flagged down our waitress and asked how much longer it would be and our waitress said "this is how we roll, this is how it is here". I understand bad service in a place is slammed and under staffed but this place was fairly empty and I wont support a place that purposefully treats their customers badly.
GREAT CREPES POOR SERVICE TOO BUSY – While 611 is in a great location and has a cool space + wonderful crepes, this is the only place in my life that I've ever been asked to leave so others could be seated. Not only that, I was still sipping on my latte and had spent a fortune. Often times the service has been snotty there but this time, there was no crepe in the world good enough to get me to return to a place that doesn't respect me. Get a crepe at Joe Bar and call it a day.
Great Crepes and drinks – Great Crepes. Stiff drinks. I recommend a combination of Mushrooms, Tomatoes, and Cambazola. Server is a fun guy, lots of energy. Bar gets crowded after 10!
Bi-Polar Server – 3 friends and I went in for dinner last night. The food was awesome, the drinks were good, the service was good... until we got out check.
When our server dropped the bill, the menu items we ordered were listed, but their prices were not. We were going to split the bill two ways, so I put the names on the credit card next to the items that we had. I took it to the server. I said I didn't know how much to put on each card because the prices weren't listed on the check, but I put our names next to what we had to help her out. Then she told me she was busy and we'd have to figure it out for ourselves. O.K. She brought us some menus and I put the prices next to each item. I didn't know how much to put down for the Blody Marys my friends ordered or the Coke my girlfriend ordered because they weren't on the menu. My friend got up to ask her how much the Blody Marys and the Coke was and the server came to the table and said, "You should have told me you were having seperate checks." Maybe, but "We were just going to tell you how much to put on each card, but the prices weren't listed next to each item." then she said, "Not everybody does it that way." As she walked away with our cards she said out loud "This is torture!"
That interaction sort of put a damper on the evening. Everything was good until the end. We felt that she was a good server until we got our check. We didn't feel that we deserved that kind of treatment for only asking for prices of things when seperating out our checks. As a person who dines out a lot and waits tables, I have never been treated that way by a server. There were 4 other tables in the restaurant, so I think there was no excuse to have been spoken to like that.
If there is an employer reading this, we went in for dinner on Sunday, April 29th.
Very accomidating – You can get the server to speak French to you usually. the crepes arent as authetntic as one might have hoped, but they are delicious either way.
SIT AT THE BAR and make new friends! – Go to 611 Supreme for crepes! Sit at the bar and chat with new friendly faces. Drink coffee, eat crepes, and fall in love with 611 Supreme..!
Crepes and Cocktails any night of the week – Nothing is more appealing than crepes - whether they are plain with citrus butter and powdered sugar or used to hold any tasty combination of meat and cheese. However, aside from breakfast chains and hotel buffets, they are rarely a menu item. I go to 611 Supreme any time I get that craving and sometimes I come just for the drinks and intimate atmosphere. The owner/manager, Margaret, is very friendly and knows a lot about wine. If she appears too busy at times to speak, it is because this place fills up fast. Reasonably priced and always satisfying, this is a great place to bring friends or a date.
