Diner Reviews
  • "We had great view seats in the lounge & our food was superb--loved the hot seafood salad & the desserts are fabulous (& huge)! Unfortunately, our server seemed overworked, very stressed, and at times not-too-well-disguised rude. It took WAY too long to get drinks & even water to our table, & when we finally got her attention to order at least a starter, she looked highly annoyed & said she wanted to take drink orders from other tables first. It felt like we had to argue to place our order! Definitely not classy & I had to apologize to our guests. Felt sorry for the server... Apart from that, we had an awesome time, topped off by a lovely after-dinner walk along the beautiful waterfront. Highly recommend Arnies."

  • "Not a great visit to Arnies last night. The trouble started when they crammed six of us into a booth that is really only designed for four. Are server did greet us right away and was friendly and professional. She took our orders in a timely manner, but that was not the problem. We all ordered of the "Early Dinner Favorites" menu. Food quality was mediocre at best. Signature Salmon is farm-raised. Not expected from a restaurant that prides its self on seafood. I had the Cashew Crusted Lingcod with roasted onion tartar sauce. Very bland. 3 entrees came out at the same time followed by 2 more 5 minutes later. The 6th came out a good 15 minutes after that. Completely unacceptable. Skip Arnie's, head south a block and go to Anthony's."

  • "On a sunny Seattle day it's the place to go. We were there for brunch this time. The food was good and their fruit plate and sticky buns are delicious. We have been there many over the years and have always been very satisfied. They have a good happy hour too."

  • "I had the dover sole and my fiance had the red snapper on the special sheet. Both were prepared exceptionally. There's a big difference in taste when the fish is fresh which always is the case at Arnies. Arnie's also has the best clam chowder. It has a mild smokey flavor."

  • "Arnie's Edmonds is consistently good. Food prepared nicely, and service quite good. Nice menu specials."

  • "We have enjoyed dining at Arnie's for years. This visit was not what we expected. The air conditioning was on too high, the clam chowder was not as good as we have had there before, the butter is now of the "wrapped in tinfoil" variety, and our bottle of white wine was left sitting on the table without an ice bucket. On a more positive side, the scallops with risotto, and fisherman's platter were both good but not great. Again, we have had better at Arnie's in the past."

  • "Arnies in Edmonds has always been such a great restaurant in terms of location and consistency of quality. I like to know that when I take someone to have a dining experience that it will be good. I have never been disappointed..Arnies is a winner."

  • "The food was okay - not great - and the service mediocre. At 2:00 pm when the restaurant was quiet, the service should have been more attentive. The miniscule deck was noisy."

  • "We were welcomed by the staff and offered a great table with an even better view! Seamless. The Open Table reservation worked like a charm. Lunch was great with abundant portions and attentive service."

  • "Seniors love the place because of the early dinner offering. Poor quality food! This place looks for quantity and not quality. They are lucky they are next door to the seniors lodge!"

  • " Warm day so a warm night. Our table was ready however and unfortunately we were seated just in front of the kitchen, So noisy with clatter of dishes and pans. Server did have the air conditioning adjusted however. Have been there many times and always the food was very good and my guests certainly enjoyed the view and the ambience. Thank you."

  • "We celebrated our Dad's 83rd birthday in style at Arnie's in Edmonds. The food was excellent, the service attentive. They even brought a dessert with lighted candle for Dad and it was on the house! I made the reservation on-line and followed it up on the day of the dinner with a phone call requested a window table with view. Although Arnie's said they couldn't guarantee a window table, we were delighted to be seated with a spectacular view of the sound, ferries going in an out at the Edmonds dock and Mt. Baker in the distance."

  • "Went with the family for their brunch on Sunday. Enjoyed a mimosa in the outside lounge with a view of the ferry coming in. Fruit plate was a little sparse but the sticky bun was yummy. The eggs Benedict was delicious and overall had a pleasant experience."

  • "This was a three sister get together at 5 PM in the lounge hoping for a spot outside. We were never quick enough to get a table outside, first come first serve, and would have enjoyed a little more fresh air. Fortunately our table got some breeze whenever the sliding door was opened and we had a good view to the water. The food was yummy- the polenta fries and salt and pepper prawns appetizers my favorite. The waitress was friendly and helpful with menu suggestions."

  • "I have eaten at Arnies for years but the last time was spectacular. Everything was above standard. I can't say enough for the waiter we had, the food or the view. I asked for a window seat when I made the reservation and was so pleased."

  • "In town for a wedding. It was a great spot for a larger family dinner. Waiter was great! Good was fresh and cooked perfectly. Great wine list and excellent drinks from the bar. Are while watchin the sun set over the water. If you are in the area it's a must."

  • "My wife and I have dined at Arnie's three times now. The first two were wonderful. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was great. This time we were treating some dear friends to dinner to discuss business. We selected Arnie's because of our prior experience and were sure it would be a wonderful time. I was very disappointed in the Alaskan King Crab & Shrimp Diablo. The sauce tasted like canned Chef Boyardee. I had two bites and could eat no more. My wife had similar thoughts of her dish. We did not finish our meal but asked for boxes, hoping our kids would eat it later. They never did. I hate to write off restaurants that were once great but when a night out costs $150-$200, I don't make that mistake twice."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "The view at Arnie's is definitely standout. Unfortunately, it is the best thing about the restaurant. The food was not bad, but not all that great either. My party ordered four different main courses, and nothing really stood out, and the portions of king salmon in particular were quite small. The staff was friendly and attentive. Definitely a nice place to go for a romantic dinner or to enjoy an ocean sunset at the bar, just don't expect superior quality food."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "I like Arnies and have been many times. However, brunch was a disappointment. I had the Crab Benedict. The presentation was excellent but the yellow lemon sauce tasted nothing like Hollandaise. It was like sucking on a lemon. Very disappointing!"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "We have been to Arnie's several times for Sunday brunch. We greatly enjoy the panoramic view of the Sound, the atmosphere, food and service!"

  • "This was my first experience at the restaurant and I expected less for some reason. I'm used to eating at Ray's and Anthony's on Seaview Ave. NW (Shilshole).The view was incredible, the food was remarkable and I'll be back soon."

  • "On a whim our family went down to the Edmonds beach and located this restaurant on Open Table. Service and Food was great. We will definitely go back."

  • "We had Halibut and chips. What a great choice, excellent fresh fish and large portions. We will make Arnies our special occasion restaurant."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The views from the restaurant are beautiful. We had a group of 6 people and I don't think any of us were overly impressed with the flavor of our meals; they all had great potential, but were disappointingly bland (salads, fish tacos, seasonal specials). Our waiter was great - attentive and engaging. I would probably give it a second try and see if food was better."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We were interviewing a potential new partner, having lunch at Arnie's closed the deal for us. It was outstanding service and meal, however our waiter new exactly how much to interrupt when to be close and when to leave us to our conversation."

  • "We have been eating at Arnies Edmonds for many years, and in the past have always relied upon them for top quality seafood fare as well as good wait staff as well as a great location/ambiance. We were disappointed when we went with our out-of-town guests - the food, while just OK, just didn't measure up to what we are used to there. And the waitperson was not particularly friendly and didn't check back on us in a timely manner."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "I ordered Miso flank steak which I have had before and really liked it. On Sunday it was overdone (I ordered medium rare) and it was sliced with the grain and hard to eat. My mashed potatoes were watery and had no flavor. My friend was disappointed in his seafood salad. The other couple had no complaints."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "How could anything be better than sitting on the edge of the ocean having a great brunch with family. Not a typical brunch but more a three course brunch of which you pick off the a la carte menu. The food was excellent and the service top notch. When I am in Seattle again, I will go back in a heartbeat."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Seating here is well laid out with views of the water from almost every location. The menu choices included some featured items which we found excellent. Our out of town guests both had the salmon and found if perfect. We tried the scallops and were delighted to find them just done and to out taste perfect. Parking can be a challenge on a Friday or Saturday night and because of Arnie's popularity a reservation is definitely needed if you don't want to wait long. That said the bar is a great one and a couple will enjoy the views, but 4 or more might find conversation difficult. On previous occasions we found the service to be excellent, but on this visit our waitress brought an incorrect appetizer and one of four entree's also wrong."

  • "We had an early dinner at Arnie's before heading off to the theater. Everything was wonderful, although I think what I ordered (Prawns Undecided) topped them all; most especially the crab stuffed prawns. The only reason I am giving the "food" rating 4 stars instead of 5 is because there fish bones in the seafood fettuccine my son-in-law had ordered; so many, it made the pasta portion of the dish inedible. Although the waiter apologized profoundly (he was mystified as that particular dish did not contain a fish that was boney) and offered my son-in-law a complementary dessert, it still seems a bit beneath a restaurant of this stature; most particularly one that specializes in seafood. Other then that, everything else was superb."

  • "We chose Arnies for our Anniversary and we were able to get a lovely window table. (the outside tables were all full) The service was grand, however, the food was only OK. Sadly, We were both disappointed. We were just expecting a much better overall dining experience. The food was just ok. The bisque was the best - should have just had soup and salad! Just disappointing."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "We enjoy coming to Arnie's whenever possible, especially sunny days. The last time we were there, Mt Baker was shining in the distance providing atmospheric ambiance and a clear sense of place. Our dinners were well prepared with a light touch to the seafood which is their specialty. Their seafood salads are creative, not like you get anywhere else. We love them."

  • "After enjoying a beautiful sunny day at Marina Park, the wonderful experience continued on at Arnie's. The spectacular water view was just as beautiful and relaxing as the park. We were surprised to find that even though we didn't order a breakfast item our lunch item came with fruit and a sticky bun. There was a lot of food and the presentations added to the positive dining experience."

  • "Edmonds Arnies is our favorite restaurant. The location which provides outstanding views is matched with a comfortable restaurant and a relaxed professional wait staff. The brunch included a fruit tray, mimosa and sticky bun. The entree item we can't avoid is the seafood omelet. It's loaded with dungeness crab and shrimp. It is probably the best omelet I've ever had. Seafood has such fragile taste, no seafood omelet has ever been 'right' for me. This omelet is outstanding."

  • "I placed our reservations on Opentable. I requested a window table because we were coming to celebrate our out of town friends 25th wedding anniversary. We were seated away from the window. Watched 3 window tables for four seated with just 2 people at each table. Hostess said couldn't do anything when I asked about my request. There was no acknowledgement from the staff about our friends anniversary. Not even saying Happy Anniversary. Waiter was pleasant but had to be reminded about drink orders, water refill and when the orders came out we had to tell who's was who's. Not at special and celebratory as we had hoped. Won't plan any more special occasions at Arnie's."
