    We brought our friends from Switzerland for lunch, knowing the view would be incredible and that they could drive there with minimum difficulty. They especially enjoyed the fish and chips lunch while we had a salad. Service was very attentive, especially the coffee refills. Overall, we will return when a similar occasion arises, though the location is a bit far for us for frequent visits.

  • Poor Service/Silly Happy Hour Rules
    MichelleVB
    Dined on 8/26/2014
    Not at all impressed with the service. I saw our server maybe 4 times, and she didn't follow through on all my requests. I didn't get my salad until half way through my meal. Took 10 minutes to get my glass of wine. And when I did get my wine, it was a very small pour. I call this out because as I looked around at other tables and even other in my party, other guests seemed to have fuller glasses. Also, I think it is silly to not offer happy hour deals to those who sit in the dining room... only if you sit in the bar you get the deals. I didn't see this called out on the Happy Hour menu. Maybe I over-looked it. Either way, I don't see the reasoning behind such a rule.

    We had a beautiful meal in the outdoor dining area overlooking the golf course, Lake Washington and the Seattle skyline. The patio area has beautiful flowers planted around it and there are sounds of running water from a man made water feature. Great setting! The meal was fabulous! Most of the people in our party had the halibut topped with Dungeness crab. It was amazing. The fish was so fresh and beautifully prepared. One of the best meals I have had dining out.

    Was kept waiting 15 minutes past our reservation when the restaurant was nearly empty. Reservation stated "outside table please" yet we were not offered nor seated outside. "Queen Mary's" a huge disappointment - a shadow of their former selves. Fish in fish tacos overcooked. All in all a disappointing, overpriced experience for us and our out of town guests, who had previously enjoyed dining here.

    Service was very slow, 30 minutes to have someone take our order, 40 minutes to get our food and another 20 minutes to get our check, then 10 more to the credit card back. Never refilled the water, never refilled the ice tea, never refilled the coffee. If you have time to kill, this is the place for you. Food was good, but cold when it reached the table. (Cold omelet--yum-yum)

    I chose this restaurant for the celebration of my friend's 88th birthday, made reservations and asked for a window table. We had to wait for a table, it was in a noisy side area next to 3 tables of 8, we waited AN HOUR for our meal. The food was good but the service disappointing.

    I love salmon and am happiest when I can get it for multiple meals in a day. The salmon chowder was truly special and I could have gorged myself on that and been satisfied. Thank goodness I only got the cup so I had room for the salmon entree' which was superb. The potato rolls were amazing and we were grateful that we could take a few home. Next time we're near Seattle, we'll definitely be back!

    This place has the best view in town, and the food is always very good. But we always make a reservation, and they still make us wait at least fifteen minutes for a table. This has happened every time we have gone here! There are always tables available, so I don't know why there is this consistent hold up.

    Food was just okay, but our wait since ordering was extremely long. Almost an hour actually. The staff while they were really nice took forever even to get the drinks going. I understand that it gets busy maybe this was borderline ridiculous. not something I would have expected for the $$$ I paid. View is amazing, place is really nice that is pretty much the only thing going for them.

    Came on sea fair weekend during the air show time; so accordingly the restaurant was packed. We had requested an outdoor table, none was available; understandable; we were seated at an indoor booth, outside views were wonderful, if somewhat obstructed. Food was tasty but not particularly memorable. Cinnamon roll was very sugary, and one would expect this, however it would benefit from the syrup being served on the side rather than over the roll. Calcutta burger very tasty. Fries advertised as "crispy" were not, although were not soggy. could have stood another round through the fryer to get a decent crips on them. Seafood Cobb salad was also very tasty and generous portion. Food was decent, just a few mis-steps in execution.

    Been here many times over the years and this time around we had the worst food. We are both vegetarians and the chef did nothing to accommodate our dietary needs. We had to pick the 1 (hot) item off the menu or cobble together some sides, which weren't great. I ordered risotto, which was probably one of the worst risottos i have I had. If it wasn't for the spectacular view, I'm not sure we would ever come back.

    Fabulous food, service, and views. A friend selected Calcutta Grill for her birthday lunch. We came on a beautiful sunny day, were served by a delightful waitress, and indulged ourselves with the most delicious, well prepared food. Salad was fresh and not over dressed, and meat was tender and tasty. We leisurely diner overlooking the golf course and the Puget sound region.

    Enjoyed a lovely evening at Calcutta. They honored my reservation request on time and window seat (on an evening where it was too cool to sit outside). Split the dungenous crab cakes, which were tasty and beautifully prepared. Rockfish entre was a substantial portion, just slightly crispy on the outside and perfectly cooked. Enjoyed a summer special glass of wine. Service was so friendly and attentive. Can't wait to go back.

    Food was good. Service was mixed. Issue seemed to be that there was no single person responsible for looking after our table. We had to ask for bread, drinks were slow, the entree turned up early (before we had chance to ask for wine) and was cold. We had to search out a server to ask for the food to be returned and warmed up.

    I was actually quite concerned when I saw some negative reviews on both OpenTable and Yelp about this restaurant. I made reservation anyway because I like the great scenic view and I think it will be great for our anniversary. We got a table by the window as I requested when I made my reservation. The overall service is quite good. I felt the staff were trying to do a good job and I think they certainly did. The food we ordered were all great. The crab cake is as good as most of the high end restaurants on the eastside. Smoke salmon chowder was wonderful. Grilled King salmon isn't the best I ever had. But it is good enough. (Maybe my expectation was low after reading some bad reviews.) Lamb Osso Buco is very tender and flavorful.

    We have eaten at Calcutta many times and it never fails to please. This time three of us went for a Sunday lunch and a nice touch they have is a complimentary fresh fruit plate for each table. We tried the Sweet Roll this time which was a 6 X 6 piece of heaven. It's great for sharing and would also be a great desert.

    We've been here on many occasions. They have good food and great views. However, this was by far the worst experience we have has service-wise at any restaurant in a very long time. Things started out OK but the food was slow in coming out and then our waitress virtually ignored us. She did rush by to hold up a dessert menu before dashing off again. She wasn't busy waiting other tables, she was busy preparing the table next to us by decanting wine and setting out limes and bottled water all in advance of a customer who had not yet arrived. While doing that she passed us 8 times without so much as a look. The busboy had to bring us our check and the manager rang the tab after we brought it to the front desk.
