My partner and I had our anniversar
My partner and I had our anniversary dinner at The Hunt Club. It was during the Dine Around Seattle Week so there were a couple of fuller tables nearby sampling the 3 course menu (probably why there was a bit more noise). However we went for the main menu and were not disappointed. Attentive wait staff, great cocktails, and pretty and delicious plates

My wife and I have been meaning
My wife and I have been meaning to visit this restaurant for many years. Dine around Seattle was a perfect excuse for us to stop in. The portions and quality of food was top notch and not watered down because of the promotion. The service was excellent and we felt very comfortable and taken care of. I highly recommend.

The decor and ambiance is
The decor and ambiance is outstanding. Be prepared to spend a little more than $$. Realistically the price is around $50 per person with salad, entre and sides. The taste is worth the trip up the hill.

The Hunt Club, a Seattle classic
The Hunt Club, a Seattle classic Dark wood paneling and ceiling and minimal windows with low lighting combine for an ambiance that is, at first entering a bit foreboding. But soon your eyes adjust and it is a cozy and intimate setting for that special dinner. We were celebrating a birthday, and despite ordering off the promotional menu (Open Table), upon learning that it was a birthday dinner, the waitress comp'd my girlfriend a glass of wine, and upgraded her dessert. Very classy and much appreciated. The clam appetizer that we ordered could have had more clams, but the hearty bisque-like broth made up for that, a bowl of deliciousness. Caesar salad had a touch too much dressing, but nice. Perfectly seared scallops and nice presentation.

Beautiful old cozy room. Extremely nice competent servers made the experience very pleasant. Great bread!

Elegant Classic is Hard to Beat
Met a friend for lunch before a medical appointment and searching where on First Hill we might go. I am on a special diet requiring proteing and veggies for lunch and my options are limited- no carbs. I had a lamb patty with cucumber salad and tomato chutney. It was perfect- great flavor and all within my low carb and low fat needs. My friend had a ruben and loved it. I love the ambience of an old world, dark, wood panneled environment that harkens back to another era. In the Hotel Sorrento, this was such a great place. I plan to return for dinner, special occasions and probably to stay the night for some holiday weekend. My friend's family often goes there at Thanksgiving. This is an old school classic. I highly recommend.

Mothers Day Brunch at The Hunt Club
Serivce was great -- prompt and extremely friendly. The buffet food was exquisite and bountiful. There was never a long line and all my children absolutely loved the experience. It was definitely an experience for all ages as my children -- ages 15, 12, 10, 5, and infant -- are all eager to make this an annual celebration of their mother! Oh, and my wife was absolutely floored at the surprise and said that without question this was the best buffet brunch she has ever been to. Great job, staff!

Great table combined with fantastic green salad, Tomato Soup/ grilled cheese sandwich made for good business lunch. Reserved table was ready and server was super.

Perfect: great food, great service
Our favorite go-to place for a family dinner, where the service is so good, the food delicious, and the place calm and quiet enough for real conversations. The bar, adjacent to the dining room, can get loud at times, but was not on our visit on Wednesday evening. The menu changes often. Had the lamb shank this week. Often boar in the winter. Generous servings.

Quaint, quiet, and serene
A perfect way to have a romantic night in. Food is amazing. The atmosphere warm and inviting. Great little spot.

Our little group's fourth visit to the Hunt Club in the past year. All of us were pleased with our food selections and thought our ever-patient waiter, Tim, was the best.. I had the lamb burger which was juicy and flavorful. I would order it again in a heart beat.

A Delight that Ressts the Fads
The Hunt Club is not a place for hipsters. If you want spare decor, throbbing sound, and foods you have never seen before, you won't like it here. But if you want to actually talk to your dinner companions while eating perfectly prepared dishes that reinterpret classic cuisine, this is the place for you. Nice bar. Perfect service in the restaurant and from the rest of the staff of the historic Sorento Hotel. My place in Seattle.

We came for a belated twentieth anniversary dinner. It was exceptional and the service fun. We enjoyed our night out

I always enjoy the Hunt Club
I always enjoy the Hunt Club and the corner booth in the bar which lends itself to leisurely meals and intimate conversation. Food is always good and served with pleasant unobtrusiveness.
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
The chef granted my request and served Tea to us on an off day. It was set up and waiting for us right in front of the fireplace. We sat in big comfy arm chairs and were served by Tim who was gracious and efficient. This was my first time to The Hunt Club. I'll come again!

The food was not only delicious
The food was not only delicious and perfectly prepared but is was 30% less than a comparable restaurant. A special treat was the jazz combo and singer in the lobby which was a great after dinner treat. I highly recommend the Hunt Club. Another bonus is that they are on the Passport card so one entree was free. Wow, can you ask for anymore?
7/18/2013 5:00:00 PM
Good but not great
While the food was very strong, the server didn't really know the menu, didn't ask about my drink choices, and the party next to me was very loud and obnoxious. On the whole a nice restaurant but not a top-of-the-heap place.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM

Our party of two sat in the bar and enjoyed a nice selection of food and drink before heading out for an evening event. We had very good service and the food from the bar menu, steamed clams, lamb burger and cheese plate, looked as good as it tasted. It was "Happy Hour" and the place was just starting to get busy so we were able to enjoy a quiet conversation.

Beautiful wood paneled dining room. Great service and very good food. Would definitely go there again when in Settle.

Had a great night out for our anniversary. Food, atmosphere and service was perfect. We live out of town and only occasionally go to Seattle, but we'll be back at the Sorrento Hotel and Hunt Club.

This was an outstanding choice
This was an outstanding choice after a full day of traveling. The ambience was just like one would expect of a Hunt Club with panneled walls and comfortable chairs--very relaxing. The bartender was friendly and welcoming. The wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable. Food was excellent. Lamb was prepared just as requested. I'm sorry it was so far away as I would love to be able to return on a regular basis.

Hunt Club Still shines
The Hunt Club has a new menu, one beer on tap now (Stella) and the same wonderful ambience and service. You can get a fine meal much more affordably and if you are up for a splurge that option is still there for you.

Lunch with friends
Three of us eat out at least once a month, and the difficulty is finding somewhere we can linger over lunch, talking, quiet enough that we can hear each other, and with a good variety of foods. The Hunt Club fits the bill.

Great atmosphere ,amazing good , and fantastic service. What more would you need from a great restaurant .

A tranquil treat
The Hunt Club is a charming gem, a relaxing oasis away from stress. Their lunch menu offers a stunning selection and admirable variety with quick an efficient service. The dine-and-dash menu is a very good deal; the crab cake and lamb burger are both perfection.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Hunt no further
Not for small budgets or everyday dining, the Hunt Club is a lovely special occasion place. We took advantage of the $28 special menu - food was excellent (although one gets the idea that they're skimping on portions when compared to full-menu service). Even so the evening meal with two non-alcoholic drinks and two coffees in addition to the three-course meals was over $90.
Host was pleasant and the waiter was superb. The setting is beautiful. I hadn't been there since the 90s and the nice thing is it hasn't changed much at all!
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
lovely working lunch
good food, lovely and fast service within easy walking distance to hospital areas. The creme brule and lavendar cookie were worth going light to enjoy!
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just excellent. Lamb chops and the sirloin were near perfect. Appetizers and desert were very good. Nice wine selection. A restaurant I would definitely recommend. Did I mention validated valet parking? Can't go wrong.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were a few minutes late due to traffic from East Madison. Called ahead so they would not give away our table. They said the would not but did anyway. Got seated in the lounge which turned our to be more relaxing and enjoyable. Food was all good. Service by one efficient lady was great.

Go EARLY and reserve Prime Rib!
Seriously EARLY. Our reservation was for 5pm (opening) and by 6, they were out of prime rib, which was the most delicious I've ever tasted. Bar none. Hands down. And I'm a chef. The lemon curd trifle was absolutely HEAVEN. Just marvelous, and the coffee was lovely and rich and full-bodied flavor as well. Our server was very attentive, and the whole experience was fantastic.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great fish, sans chips
I liked the beer battered halibut and the tartar sauce. The fries on the other hand were so over cooked and crisp that they tasted burnt. Please stop overcooking the fries. Over all the service was great. The waitress put our order in immediately as my party had to get back to work soon.

Hadn't been to the Hunt Club in quite a while. Better than average calamari and salad. Ordered two salmon dinners: my wife's was the best we've had this year, mine was better than average (slightly overcooked for medium rare). Sauce for salmon unusual and complement salmon superbly. Horseradish mashed potatoes a pleasant surprise. Asparagus well-prepared and overpriced. Lovely ambience, especially for a hotel.

The food was excellent! Took a group of girlfriends from Canada to brunch; They Loved It! It was my first visit; the Sorrento made me look good! I can't wait to return.

The food and service was excellent! Decor is beautiful.

We use the Hunt Club for business lunches, and it is a perfect location. The service and ambience are terrific, and the valet parking makes it very easy to get into and out of the restaurant with a minimum of fuss.
If one frequents the restaurant on a regular basis, it would be nice to have a few more choices from the menu, especially for those who prefer lighter foods.

Old World Elegance
The Hunt Club has the ambiance of an old English manor house, created with dark woods and brick. Located in the Sorrento Hotel, it's a good place to enjoy a cozy meal on one of Seattle's dark, rainy days. The atmosphere is peaceful and unhurried; the service excellent. (There is no view or outside dining.) The dinner menu is quite varied and includes small plates, a five course fixed price meal with choices for each course at $30 and some quite expensive special entrees. If you still have any room, the desserts are excellent.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
A Fine Place.
We had not been to the Hunt Club for several years. We were pleased that it is as good as it always has been. Thanks !

Great Night Out
When walking from downtown Seattle, you pay your dues to get to the Hunt Club. It's 9 blocks up a steep hill. But it's well worth it in terms of ambiance, service, and most importantly, quality of food. The Hunt Club is in an old, aristocratic hotel, the Sorrento, and the place just drips with class. Lots of polished wood and period accoutrement cause the visitor to feel comfortable upon entering. The menu is not overly complicated, featuring innovative courses as well as expected fare. The wine list is not overly complex or too expensive, either, but rather is fairly well suited to the menu. The service was friendly, informed, and not intrusive. All in all, the Hunt Club will provide you with a good evening out. Highly recommended.

Romantic Christmas Ambiance
It was our first time eating dinner @ the Hunt Club & my husband & I thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. I have a gluten allergy & our waiter was very helpful recommending options on the menu that would work for me. We loved the clams as an appetizer, the pumpkin soup was fabulous as was the herb stuffed chicken breast w-roasted cauliflower. The decor was particularly festive during the holidays w/beautiful garlands wrapped in twinkle lights draping the windows. We would definitely dine there again in the future.
