Diner Reviews
  • "We recently enjoyed a wonderful Brunch at Fresh Bistro. Quality food, good ambiance, and great service."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Title says it already. Everything on menu excellent. Love the pork sliders."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "We chose to eat here based on the reviews. While the ambiance and service were good, the food was just average. Very unique offerings, very fresh, but taste-wise - just not up to expectations. Would not consider returning when there are so many amazing restaurants to choose from in the West Seattle area. Great concept, poor execution in the food department."

  • "We had the Restaurant Week special. All the choices were good and the food was delicious. They also have unique cocktails (Seattle sour) that I enjoyed. Slightly pricey but worth going back again"

  • "My husband and I tried out Fresh Bistro because we had a gift card there. Definitely worth it and will go back again. We loved the food! Amazing dishes and great ambience. They have a great Happy Hour menu, although it is still a bit pricey, worth a try. They have a great drink menu and the staff were very friendly. We enjoyed our experience and highly recommend a try."

  • "We had heard good things about Fresh Bistro and paid them a visit during Open Dining, so we ate off a limited menu. Our appetizers, entrees and desserts were well prepared, nicely presented and every dish we ate was very good."

  • "Every time I go to Fresh Bistro I get great food, and when I'm there with groups everyone is impressed. I'm really surprised it isn't more crowded. I think when all the new building is completed in that area of the Junction it will be so full I'll never get a table easily again. Great food, reasonable prices, nice menu selection, and friendly staff."

  • "The food was fantastic, especially the prawns and chicken. Our server was wonderful. Great martinis too!"
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Think of Fresh Bistro when you want quality, original takes on familiar items, knowledgeable wait staff, and a relaxing atmosphere. I count on the quality of the ingredients, the careful preparation, and the attention to detail. With many good choices in my neighborhood (West Seattle), this spot is one of my top picks. A favorite event is "Steak Mondays.""

  • "Fresh Bistro was a great pleasure for dinner. Server provided great service to enliven us all including a late teen and tired traveler. Terrine of roasted beets and chevre were incredible. Salads composed with wonderful ingredients. Vegetarien entree of cauliflower and tahini was pitch perfect. Cant wait to return."

  • "The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. Will definitely come back for brunch!"

  • "We were looking forward to our experience at Fresh and we were very disappointed. At first we were optimistic because we were seated quickly, the room looked nice and our waitress was attentive. Then the limited menu arrived and our waitress recommended the Lamb burger and we ordered it and then was told at 6:30 there were no more left for the night. My wife ordered a cauliflower dish and I had chicken. Well when the food showed up at close to 7:30 were we disappointed. The cauliflower was almost inedible, the chicken was uninspiring and the wait was forever. The only good thing was they didn't charge us because of the wait."

  • "Except for the dominating red pepper in the crab cakes, the meal was delicious! Great wine, great service."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "I've been wanting to try this place out for awhile and when I bought the TravelZoo voucher for this place, it was more reason to try it! It came with 2 apps, 2 entrees, and 2 desserts, so we were able to try alot: Crab cakes-pretty good, but small Lobster Mac & Cheese-really yummy! but does come with an entire lobster tail so it's a bit tricky to eat. not complaining too much, because it is lobster :) Steak Salad-really really good. pickled apples added a sweet and tangy crunch. the sous vide egg added a creamy texture and the steak was good. NY Strip Steak-my husband said it was ok and slightly overcooked, he asked for rare Pear Tarte-pretty good but the shortbread crust was a little too rich for me Vanilla Creme Brulee-creamy and sweet"
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "As I'm always looking for a new place to try, Fresh Bistro was recommended by my niece so why not celebrate there for her birthday. We started with the French onion soup which was pungent with wonderful melted cheese and extremely flavorful then moved on to the sweet potato crab cakes and a salad of bibb lettuce, gorgonzola and pears with hazelnut brittle and finished off with just the right amount of Vinny dressing. The salad had all the pop and left the crab cakes paling in comparison. Let's just say they could use a little more crab. For the main course we thoroughly enjoyed the brisket as well as the New York strip French dip and the meal was finished off with the chocolate lava cake and pear tart. YUMMM"

  • "food was great; they didn't have the wine we ordered, then only had one bottle of our second choice. Noise level too much for us. I would go back right at the beginning of serving in the hope that it wouldn't be so noisy."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "Quality has gone down over the years. It was a great new neighborhood restaurant in the beginning. They have not kept it "fresh"."

  • "We went on a Monday not realizing it was steak night. I don't often eat steak, but when I do I want it to be good. This was great! The meat was tender and full of flavor and the demi-glace was outstanding. My husband had the pork chops and loved them. We are glad we found this restaurant and highly recommend it."

  • "We went on a Saturday night and were in a bit of a hurry to catch a play. Our waiter was all over it, and the place was jumping. Well done."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "All four of our dishes were lovely and cooked to perfection. The pork loin with polenta and braised greens were delicious and just as good for leftovers. Stroganoff and brisket much enjoyed and the mini surf & turf was a yummy delight. Service was well done and we never felt rushed. It was a wonderful leisurely evening of friends and great food. We plan to try brunch next!"

  • "A friend and I went to Fresh for brunch and to watch the Seahawk's game. The food was excellent! The service was fabulous and the cocktails (so many choices!) were perfection."

  • "This review is for their monday night steak night only. We came and ordered the ribeye, steak salad and the bacon wrapped filet.,Twice baked potatoes,The ribeye was juicy and delicious. The filet was grey and the bacon wasn't cooked enough and peeled off flacid-peppercorn sauce not listed on menu either.I didn't make an issue when I was there, which I should have. More fair than just writing a review. Next time I crave steak I will pay more and go to Jak's. The potatoes were a little dry and my husband thinks the steak was precooked for his salad-looked greyish too. THe service was good and ambiance is nice. I have been there plenty of times and I LOVE their bahn mi."

  • "We've dined at Fresh Bistro at brunch and dinner. The menu is global and fresh. There's something for everyone as even our preschooler loves to eat here. They don't have a printed child's menu but do ask for selections. The wagyu lamb burger is delicious but you can't go wrong with whatever is on special either!"

  • "My wife and I enjoyed New Year's Eve dinner from the 4 course prix fixe menu. All courses were excellent and the entree of black cod was outstanding. We go to Fresh Bistro often for the outstanding happy hour in the lounge. We feel fortunate to live a couple minutes away from the restaurant."

  • "I have been there several times- was happy to see better service more friendly- but food seemed lacking this time - less flavor and not as good selection- for brunch - would like less fussy items- dont need peppers with eggs - also a little more pricey - hoping flavors return - not quite as excited in returning but will probably try again"
    Dined on 12/29/2013

    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "Everything was just okay. We ordered 3 appetizers and the server brought the first two pretty fast but the third took a lot longer because she forgot to put the order in. I had the chowder and the beef stroganoff. Both needed salt but there was none at the table."
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "We dine there often and are never bored with the refreshing menu. They seem to manage to rotate and modify often so that there is always something new to try. Have not had a disappointment. Service is pleasant and attentive."

  • "This is always a great place to bring my out of town friends/family for excellent food and a wonderful menu variety. This was the second time I'd taken my Chicago cousin to Sunday brunch at Fresh Bistro and it not only met but even exceeded her expectations (and she knows great food)! I had the halibut tacos and my cousin had a sweet potato dish with root veggies. Their prices are also quite reasonable and they participate in Dine Around Seattle."

  • "I've had the pleasure to dine at Fresh Bistro three times now; once for dinner and twice for brunch. All three times have been a wonderful and tasty experience. This last visit was especially excellent due to our wonderful server, Emma. She was friendly, timely, and made great suggestions. We had a party of four and ordered bloody marys & cappuccinos, the Hawaiian Breakfast, the vanilla bean waffle, vietnamese crepe, and the sopes... all were very delicious! I highly recommend Fresh Bistro and look forward to my next visit!"

  • "Fresh Bistro serves up innovative recipes using local ingredients and presents everything in very beautiful and creative ways. The food was uniformly excellent and the service superb. A casual, yet refined atmosphere makes it a great place for conversation and special get-to-gethers. Portions range on the smaller side so you'll have room for dessert and not feel stuffed but you might be a little disappointed if you're expecting more. The food is meant to be savored not devoured."
