A word from Betty
Much like her sibling down the hill, Betty serves a rotating menu of bistro-style food using seasonal ingredients. We are centrally located amongst the trendy businesses along Queen Anne Avenue's bustling business district - step inside to our inviting yet eclectic and sophisticated atmosphere, featuring art by Bay Area artist, Judah Thomas. The restaurant offers seating in either our dining room or at the chef's counter where you can watch our talented chefs at work. Betty also has a full bar and lounge and a superb wine list with values from around the globe. Reservations are recommended.Continued

  • "Menu doesn't change too often (just like its sister restaurant Crow). Both are serve consistently good food and have great service. The wine list is light on quality WA wines (a personal favorite). Oh and dat cassoulet in the winter...cannot be beat in Seattle."

  • "Had dinner here prior to an event at Key Arena. Second visit was even better than the first. Fresh ingredients, seasonal specials, wonderful bar. Wine list and menu are brief but reflect great taste and good value. We really enjoy our times at Betty."

  • "We chose Betty for a special celebration. We had two amazing appetizers (grilled squid and an asparagus salad) but our entrees were a mixed lot, with the halibut and pea greens lovely, the lamb decent, and the pork loin way too spicy. It tasted as if an entire jar of pepper was dumped in the sauce, making the entire plate inedible. Our waiter was so busy it took at least 15 minutes for him to check on us. It was getting late for us, and although he was apologetic and offered to comp a salad (!), we opted for a quick dessert instead, and were pleased with the rhubarb pie."

  • "We dined at Betty before we went to the James Taylor concert. We had never been before. It is very cool, casual place with delicious food. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Great cocktails and a small but sufficient wine list. I would reccommend it to friends. "

  • "Great little spot tucked in at the top of the counterbalance. Menu is unique and fresh and prices are reasonable. We will be back to enjoy the ambiance and kind wait staff. "

  • "They definitely know how to cook their meat to perfection. From the steak to the lamb chops, it all melts in your mouth and keeps you coming back for more. My favorite meat they cook is their pork loin though--my husband and I have been here 4 times just because we crave their pork loin!! "

  • "The menu was linited but the food was great! However, we were greeted by a hostess without a smile and noone shared any information with us about the specials. In general, staff seemed a little unfriendly but food was great."

  • "Overall, the service and food was good. However, my salad and my steak was very salty. I ended up drinking 3 glasses of water during the meal and was too full to eat anything else. "

  • "Betty is a delight. We've eaten there a number of times and figured that it was time to share the love. At Betty the food is never over-seasoned (read over-salted, my pet peeve). And we love the fun and attentive wait-staff at Betty. The menu is not huge, but has all the bases covered with fresh and seasonal choices. The food is delicious and well prepared. We were recently there on a warm evening, and the windows were open to the Upper Queen Anne ambience. Nice and casual but still with a touch of class, Betty is a perfect place for a relaxed evening meal and conversation between friends."

  • "Is delicious!! I split this dish with my daughter because it is plenty for two. We even had a leftover snack portion that was excellent the next day! We also shared the shaved asparagus and arugula salad. A perfect dinner. "

  • "I picked Betty for my welcome home dinner after being abroad for most of a year. The food was exactly what I wanted but sadly the waitress was horrible, rude and made me not want to come back. Hopefully this is a one time occurrence. "

  • "We enjoyed Mother's Day early dinner in the lounge during Happy Hour. The offerings were good value and the bar bites for appes worked well. She enjoyed the corn soup and I had the burger; both were very good and of good value."

  • "Betty is a good location if you have an event at the Seattle Center. The menu selections sounded interesting but our dinners were just ok, not great. Wine options could be better along with non-alcoholic drink options. Our arugula salads were very good as were the fries that accompanied the hamburgers. The restaurant has a nice ambience. "

  • "I chose Betty as the venue for my partner's surprise, romantic birthday dinner. I had the halibut which was a beautiful, perfectly cooked piece of fish. Moist and flakey inside with a seared, light and tasty crust. My partner had the pork loin and loved it. The atmosphere was intimate though the bench seats quite uncomfortable. The hostess greeted us by saying we only had 2 hours as there was a reservation after us. Not a good way to start out our experience but the food and wait staff more than made up for it. "
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Food was excellent and the 4 of us had very different items from appetizer to salads, entrees and desserts. Service was right on too. Only negative was the heat...no air conditioning had been turned on and it was nearly too warm throughout our meal to enjoy it. "

  • "Went to Betty for Dine Out for Life. We sat at the counter and enjoyed watching the food preparation. After the a cured meats appetizer, we ordered 2 of our favorite dishes: steak frites and pork tenderloin, and both were outstanding: moist and flavorful! The tenderloin came with a wonderful veggie side dish that also impressed. Great drinks and attentive service too. Can't wait to go back."
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "Dine Out for Life was our excuse for trying Betty - thank you for supporting this cause - but we will need no excuse to return. Everything about the meal was great. A Manhattan was done very well and I followed with the roast chicken with asparagus and potatoes. It was amazing. Dessert was a tough choice but I went for the banana cream pie - again, amazing. Service was great and everything was pretty close to perfect."
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "We loved Betty! The food rib-eye was excellent, and my friend said the roasted chicken was really good. We both agreed that the cheese curds were some of the best we'd ever had. My friend really liked the banana cream pie too. The service was excellent. The server was really nice and knowledgeable. I will definitely come back to Betty."

  • "We sat at the chef's counter and ordered from the $28 three course meal special. We selected our salads (garden) and entrees (nettle and risotto for my wife, roasted chicken for me) We also ordered the octopus from the shared menu because neither of us had ever eaten octopus. Everything was beautifully prepared and delicious. We ended with the grasshopper/peppermint dessert for my wife (she raved about how wonderful it was!) I had the banana cream pie, which was very nice too. A very nice place to relax and be pampered. Waitress (Julia) was perfect."
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "My friend and I had a wonderful dinner at Betty. It was our first experience and we were a bit rushed because we were going to the ballet. Our waitress was very accommodating (she suggested we not order the chicken because that would take a while). We both had the pork tenderloin, asparagus soup and two different desserts which were all excellent. The portions were reasonable. Would highly recommend."

  • "We went to Betty during Seattle Restaurant Week and ordered from the prix fixe menu. I had mixed green salad followed by a Mexican Braised Lamb Shank; my companion started with the pear & Bibb lettuce salad and had the Oven Roasted Chicken for her main. We thought the food was really excellent - well-cooked and seasoned beautifully, nicely presented. The quantity was just right too. For dessert I had the Meyer Lemon tart and she had the banana cream pie, and again they were wonderful. The service was quick, friendly and professional. No mistakes, plenty of attention; water glasses were kept full and my friend's hot tea water was replenished. The server even offered to split the check for us without being asked. Overall a terrific evening!"

  • "The Steak Frites meal continues to be a huge treat. I have steak perhaps twice a year, and this is the spot. Tender, generous, perfectly prepared at med. rare, My husband Lamb shank was so ggood it fell off the bone. Nice moderately priced wine selection also. Queen Anne is so fortunate to have this place."

  • "I've been to some of the bigger, more popular restaurants in Seattle... And as good as they are, none compare to Betty. The food is consistent, sheet perfection. I go at least once a month and every time after I take my first bite, I question why I would ever go anywhere else. The steak and frites, phenomenal; the oven roasted chicken, mouth watering; the Betty burger, juicy and flavorful. From the appetizers and entrees to the accommodating and friendly staff, you will not be disappointed. My personal favorite place to sit is at the chef's counter--the chef and staff are so kind and hard working. It's a fun time!!"

  • "My wife and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary at Betty. I had he lamb shank and it fell off the bone and was deliciously tender. The waitstaff was fantastic, very attentive without being pushy, very sincere and knowledgable aboutthe menu with excellent recommendations. Atmosphere is energetic in the lounge so sit in the dining area if u want a more mellowexperience. Very reasonable pricing for the location and excellent food."

  • "We enjoyed sitting at the bar and chatting with the cooks. They were very helpful and friendly. The happy hour food was great. The service was really fast and friendly. We now want to go back and order off the regular menu after watching some of the dishes being prepared and described to us by one of the chefs."

  • "It's hard to be objective -- we've been going almost weekly since they opened years ago. What more can I say? Betty is perfect for any occasion. The food is well priced and healthy (low carb, if you watch your intake of their amazing fries). We never feel like we're over-indulging. They're cocktail menu and wine list will make you happy. I could go on and on. Betty forever!"

  • "Early dinner with friends. Service was warm, but not obtrusive. The place was empty when we arrived, full when we left, with a nice energy. Food was very good. It was my first time at the restaurant, so I was a little surprised at the limited menu. If what's on offer is what you want, it will be delicious. But don't expect a lot of choices. The only disappointment was an overpriced cheese plate starter course: a thumb-sized piece of supermarket brie and four thin slices of a decent white cheddar, accompanied by a few raspberries, some artisan-ish crackers, and a thimble of dried cherries. It was what I might set out if my wife's boss was coming to our house for drinks. (We don't like him very much.)"

  • "I took my girlfriend here for Valentine's Day and it was the perfect spot. The food was fantastic, the wine was great, and the atmosphere was perfect for a date. It was fairly lively in the restaurant but we could easily hear each other. It was a fairly romantic setting with an atmosphere that made it easy to ignore all that was happening around us. The waitress easily answered all my questions about food and wine and had great service."

  • "Waitress was not very attentive, and actually not very friendly. There was a hair in my french onion soup; she replaced the soup, but only at my urging did she remove the charge from the bill."

  • "Second, time at Betty; V-day. Service was amazing: Sara: friendly, knowledgable, personable, attentive. We ordered oysters, hamburger, pork tenderloin, & English toffee pudding. The hamburger was 5 stars. Absolutely perfect; quality of meat, bun, pickles- everything. Tenderloin was moist & flavorful; never had a tenderloin cooked so perfectly. My only recommendations: the chicories was a little too bitter for me, it was exactly how it should be; just not a fan of bitter. Also, we wished the oysters came on ice instead of salt. Large clumps of salt stuck to the shell and to the lemons; it overwhelmed the taste & texture of the oysters, but the quality was perfect. Dessert: Amazing. So sad, I forgot my leftover."
