    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 3/29/2009
    My companion and I enjoyed our 3-course meals; good flavors and nice presentation. Service was prompt and professional. We liked the open kitchen, but the ambiance was dominated by a very loud noise level, due to the contemporary sparse hard-surface furnishings. As a tinnitus sufferer, I don't consider this a positive aspect, but sadly for me it seems to be fashionable. (OpenTable rates noise level as "quiet", "moderate", or "energetic"!) At the end of the meal I was eager to leave, just to escape the din. Not a romantic atmosphere at all. But the food was quite good.

    I would definitely recommend Spring Hill for either a casual get-together or for a special occasion. The service was excellent and the food came out in a timely fashion. The presentation of the food was wonderful and the menu provided a lot of variety.

    I've now been to Spring Hill twice and it has been great both times! Their clam chowder soup is an amazing dish! We had mussels, oysters, crab... and all were so fresh, it tasted like they were just plucked from the ocean and landed on our table. Our waiter, Andy, was fantastic, really knowledgeable, great suggestions, great attitude!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 3/26/2009
    We had the "Dine Around Seattle" menu. The starters, pork rillette and lettuce salad, were OK - not very strong or memorable flavors. The entrees - olive oil poached chicken breast and the wood grilled flat iron steak. The chicken, again, was good - but not very flavorful (though the celery-root fricasee was rich in country flavor). The steak and potatoes, however, were divine! They re-defined the phrase "meat and potatoes". It was apparent that it wasn't the exceptional quality of the meat but the mode of preparation that made the meat stand out, and the potatoes tasted like campfire puree - OMG! The desserts - chocolate fudge cake with peanut butter ice cream (my favorite) and semi-sweet butterscotch pudding - great with paired riesling!

    tables were a bit bare and sparse looking almost like picnic tables, but the entrees were delicious, had the hangar steak with potatoes, very well prepared. too bad they charge for the rolls. waiter was a bit busy with other customers to attend, had to ask bus boy for things like wine and bread. overall, good quality food, would go back just for the food.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIP
    Dined on 3/25/2009
    We were there for the "Dine Around" deal and we weren't alone- the place was full. Unfortunately, they hadn't staffed up for the event and we waited too long between courses- a 3-hour dinner on a Tues.?. The waiters were running around a lot but there just weren't enough of them. The appetizer of blue cheese, dried beef, and crackers was good but rather small. My chicken with crispy skin was just okay. The skin (served separated from the meat) was crispy but cold and the breast was moist but rather bland. My companion said his tuna dish was bland as well. But the desserts were the stand out- homemade butterscotch pudding, grasshopper pie, and brownie with peanut ice cream. Too bad about the service though. And way too loud-do something!

    Food is excellent, service not so much. Waiter was a bit rude and a bit too familiar/pushy in his presentation. Would go again but make sure to have a different server.

    food was really good... one draw back.. I had to pay for 3 pieces of bread and had to wait 20 minutes. The bread came when I was almost done with the main course. Other than that I really enjoyed the food at the restaurant.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 3/18/2009
    I went to Spring Hill for the Dine Around Seattle promotion. Spring Hill did a wonderful job with the promotion, really showcasing their menu by having items that showed their focus on local ingredients and strong technique. We had the smoked blue cheese and the pork rillette appetizers, both of which were excellent. We followed with the flat-iron steak and olive oil-poached chicken. Both of these were excellent, but the flat iron steak stood out. The desserts were great, especially the balance of salt and sweet in the chocolate cake. The wine pairings were good, but perhaps a little uninspired given the quality of the menu. Still, a very minor ding in an overall great meal.

    It was empty at noon on Sunday. They refused to omit mushrooms from the baked eggs, which seemed oddly rigid. The service was otherwise rude and discomfiting. I won't go back.

    The rainbow trout was absolutely fantastic! After my boyfriend finished off his short ribs, he started in on helping me with my fish. The hazlenut dressing/crumbles made it absolutely delectible. We also thoroughly enjoyed our miner's lettuce salad, as well as dessert. Very glad we made the choice to have "date night" at Spring Hill.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    We had high hopes for this new place in W. Seattle. The waiters were nice and the place had great interior design. However I felt it was a bit petty for them to charge me 3 dollars for bread and butter when I spent $160+tip on dinner. I can go to another plenty of other places and have a $160+tip dinner and not be nickel and dimed for things that should just come with a dinner that expensive. We will not be eating here again on this alone.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2002
    Dined on 2/26/2009
    I have been here several times and never come away disappointed. This time was no exception. I had the short ribs at the recommendation of the server, and they were outstanding - very much a treat and not something I ordinarily would have ordered. I will say that unlike prior experiences, the service was slow on Thursday night. The restaurant was full and there appeared to be plenty of wait staff, but our orders and second round of drinks were a long time coming which was unusual. A gentleman who was not our server did bring us some delightful mango sorbet to cleanse our palets while we waited, and that was a great gesture. We were enjoying our gab fest too much to complaint, and I sense maybe they were just having some temp problems.

    A truly memorable hamburger -- probably the best in town! The roast lamb was fantastic, and I loved the fried sweetbreads. They seem to have a real sense for ingredients here and treat them with respect. Worth the drive to West Seattle.
