    We returned to Calcutta Grill for our 38th. Very good meal as usual with a new menu. Somewhat noisy due to a party that got louder as they drank more (I'm guessing). The room has a bit of an echo. Excellent service. Worth the drive.

    The only reason to come here is the view. The food takes forever which is odd considering it arrives either cold or frozen still on the inside. I've brought people here for breakfast and dinner and both are the same. The service is lousy and the food is worse when you finally get it.

    I love this place for special occasions because it is so special itself! The view of the golf course is amazing. The Seattle and Bellevue skylines where in spotlights from the sun. The brunch menu included all my favorites, but I joined a friend in ordering the Coal Creek omelet with generous amounts of black forest ham, bell peppers, green onions and cheese. Another friend enjoyed the Seafood Cobb Salad with shrimp, Dungeness crab and poached prawns. We were all very impressed with our meals. Our waitress was so fun, we asked her to join us, but she continued to take good care of us, even taking keepsake pictures. The class of the country club, food, view, and wait staff made for a very special birthday brunch with great friends!

    Perfect fall evening. Unbelievable view. The restaurant unusually quiet for such a nice night. The crabcakes were small and bland. Probably the worst I've ever had. Nothing like a Caesar salad on a warm plate fresh out of the dishwasher. The roast beef was very good, but that was the extent of the evening. I'll go back, but I won't be going back for the food.

    Can't beat the view or the ambiance. Staff is courteous and prompt, but not invasive. Great place to eat on the patio and look at Seattle lights or inside where it is dark and romantic. There are few to no healthy food options and entrees and soups were salty and greasy/oily. Presentation was good and prices moderate. I plan to go back and try the happy hour menu.

    I BROUGHT SOME FRIENDS FROM MICHIGAN UP TO SEE THE VIEW AND HAVE A VERY GOOD DINNER. THEY WERE VERY IMPRESSED WITH THE SETTING AND THE FOOD. IN FACT SINCE THEY ARE GOING TO BE HERE A FEW MORE DAYS THEY WILL TRY TO GET BACK. I HAVE BEEN THERE SEVERAL TIMES AND I HAVE NEVER BEEN DISAPPOINTED. ONE COMMENT I WILL MAKE THOUGH IS THAT SINCE IT IS A SPECIAL PLACE WHY DON'T YOU OFFER PRIME STEAKS AS YOU DO WITH PRIME RIBS. IT JUST SEEMS BECAUSE OF THE AMBIENCE OF THE PLACE YOU SHOULD GO THAT WAY.

    We arrived for lunch and had reservations. The Hostess with a british accent was talking to a couple of ladies for what seemed to be several minues without acknowleging our presence. She then seated that group without acknowleging our presence. After probably 6-7 minutes she came back and spoke to and seated us. Otherwise the food, wait service and ambiance were very good.

    We took our neighbor for a birthday celebration lunch. Fortunately, the weather was beautiful so we were able to eat outside. The menu was varied enough to have a choice for everyone, the service was friendly and competent, and the view made a fabulous background to our conversation. We have dined there many times, and we have never been disappointed.

    Every time I dined here it always seems like the food takes forever to arrive and when it does, it does not match the quality of the location. At this location you'd expect the food to better than Anthony's (a local NW seafood chain) and it isn't. I had the fish tacos recently, and they were ok but not memorable. They were a little bit dry, and a bit bland. Perhaps more sauce or salsa would have helped. I have had other meals (salmon), with similar non memorable impressions. Their salmon chowder on the other hand was good. The location and views are hard to beat though.

    Our only real complaint was with the prime rib. It was tough. Our waiter warned us about this when we asked for his recommendations, but my husband chose the prime rib anyway. I had steak and it was just fine. Everything else was lovely. Spendy but lovely.

    We had made reservations for a window table, which we got. However, there were A/C outlets blowing on us from above, so we retreated to a booth. The 2 of us split a small Caesar's Salad; very good, not heavy on the dressing. She had Salmon; I had Halibut--both nice and moist. Service was very attentive, almost too much so at times. Ordered coffee for dessert, which was strong to our taste and, unfortunately, was served lukewarm. She later made a comment about it and was brought a hot cup of same. I usually drink most of mine at room temp so it didn't bother me. Still, It seemed strange that I wasn't even asked if mine was OK. We split a berry tart with ice cream on it. Very good.

    Not sure what's happened here. Use to be a great place for weekend brunch buffet until they canceled that. But service and food has taken a noticeable nose dive. I ate breakfast there with some friends and service was so-so. A few things stood out. 1.) the waitress did not write down our order when she asked if we wanted beverages and got it wrong and had to ask again. Not very professional. 2.) the espresso came last after the meal even though it was ordered the same time as other beverages. I checked twice with the waitress on the espresso when we were waiting and here response was not very polite or professional 3.) eggs Benedict were overcooked, the yolk should still be liquid not cooked through

    Great views, above average food (for the price) but service is lacking. This is my second time I have had dinner at Calcutta Grill when I have had my server tell me "the bar is backed up". That, and not having your server explain or even attend to the table (bread? how was your meal? can I get you another beverage?) - service continues to be sorely lacking. Such a pity because the food Is actually quite good, and the views/outdoor dinning are to die for.

    We took out of town guests there to enjoy the food and the fabulous view. Neither disappointed! It is one of those restaurants you like to "keep in your back pocket" for special occasions. Summertime is perfect because of the views of the golf course, east channel, Bellevue, Lake Washington, Seattle, Puget Sound, and the Olympics. The bagpipes at sundown are a wonderful touch. Doesn't get much better!

    I celebrated my daughter's 17th birthday there. We sat outside at the perfect view table. Truly a memorable evening. The food was very good and the service was excellent. But the the ambience was simply amazing. The view is second to none on the Eastside. The bag piper came from behind the hills as the sun was setting--kind of surreal.. Then the lights of the Seattle, Bellevue and Renton came on. Simply a magical evening--and one my daughter and I will not soon forget.

    Such a lovely setting spoiled by staff which seemed rushed and too busy for the most simple level of service. Salad plates dropped at the table, never an offer for ground pepper. Steak delivered without s steak knife. Seated for ten minutes without service which came only after we asked to be helped. What a mess. At least the view is lovely.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our meal on the patio overlooking the golf course at Newcastle and the views of Seattle, Bellevue, the Sound and Olympic Mountains. Our Stuffed Salmon, Pork Ribs and Steak dishes were sublime. And the capper was the bag piper who started at 8 p.m. on the knoll about 50 yards from the restaurant and played for 20 minutes finally walking a path just off the patio. It was a gorgeous sunset and great place to celebrate an anniversary with our friends.

    Food was only so so, but the service was unacceptable. Did not retain my special reservation request. Waiter didn't know who the dishes were for, didn't bring what I ordered, then billed me for it anyway, was unfamiliar with my drink and then acted like I ordered something "odd". Believe me it is a standard drink. Caprese salad was all beefsteak tomatoes, not heirloom, with a small dollop of mozzarella. My "special" family dinner was the worst experience in a week long vacation. I will go elsewhere next time.
