    Wasn't particularly busy but it was a Monday night. Our waitress was an adorable blond that gave us friendly and fantastic service. Great choice of cocktails and must recommend the one with a blood orange. The name escapes me but it did include the word fear. My boyfriend and I started with an order of their bread ( a must) the chefs bakers dozen of oysters (amazing) and the bacon wrapped venison ( best venison either of us ever had and cooked to perfection). Our entrees were the new York and the steak Oscar. Both were heavenly. We finished with the baked pear and mascarpone. This place has never let me down and I can't wait to come back:)

    On very rainy Sunday afternoon following an resounding Symphony performance, the Brooklyn Seafood ,Steak and Oyster House resturant near by was a very quiet setting to enjoy a cocktail and some small plates off the menu. Especially liked the Venison wrapped in bacon.... and some pan fried oysters with spicy red sauce was most enjoyable with a glass of Acrobate Pinot Gris. Bowl of Clam chowder also hit the spot. We never order desert...... but the waiter convinced us share the carmel pear offering----next time I want my own - no sharing!! Great day to start the week....Thanks Brooklyn....

    This is my favorite place for great food in Seattle! Perfect for a romantic evening or a night out with friends. We both had the Steak Oscar, a first time for my guy and the steak itself was melt in your mouth perfect! Presentation was exceptional, with the potato towers looking very hip. The staff has always been very attentive every time I have been there, even when it was with the children. The room is nice with warm woods and brass metals. The valet parking is a plus, so you don't have to find your own. LOVE LOVE LOVE this place!

    Went back after a couple year's away and had a wonderful dinner. Sat at the Chef's counter to take in the cooking action and thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful seafood dinner. The scallops were outstanding. Make sure to save room for the poached pears - one of the best desserts in town.

    Was disappointed with the thick,gooey, clam chowder. It was tasteless. Enjoyed the day boat scallops/ short rib. Delicious and well- presented. The key lime dessert was not like the previous time when I was in Seattle. It use to be light and had a very tasty lime flavor. This time it was very thick and lacked the lime flavor. Too much of the condensed milk. Excellent, attentive, service

    I've been this restaurant twice, once with a friend for drinks, oysters and dinner and a second time for a romantic birthday celebration...both times I was not disappointed. The oyster selection rocks, the chef's seating is the best seat in the house and the Steak Oscar is to die for. I highly recommend this restaurant for all occasions, except maybe not with the kiddies...you will want to enjoy this meal, the ambience, etc.

    We returned this year to enjoy a quiet dinner. The first time we didn't have reservations & were seated at the counter & enjoyed the view to watch the food prepared. This was highly entertaining. This time we had a table for 2 and we had another great meal. We plan on making this a regular stop when we visit seattle.

    I stopped in after going to an early evening lecture. Hungry but not starving. A couple of the small plates exactly filled the bill. The lobster ravioli was delicious with a cream sauce and fish roe (5*). Venison medallion wrapped in bacon had some gristle, and could have been cooked a bit longer, but was tasty (3* for an average 4* rating). Sitting at the counter with high-backed swivel chairs was interesting. The server was busy and stopped by occasionally. The wine list by the glass was adequate.

    I've never had a wedge salad with a wedge so small that the head of lettuce obviously served 10 portions. The scallop special was described to be very large scallops served atop a potato cakes with short rib beef on top. The scallops were excellent although they and the potato cakes were the size of a 50 cent piece. ( you get 3). Very disappointing that I took 3 friends there for a special visit.

    Our waiter (Nick) was prompt, attentive, knowledgeable about the wine list (gave great pairing recommendations). He also took great care to pace the meal in such a way we didn't feel rushed but still finished in time to make the opera. The food was beautifully plated and the lobster ravioli was amazing. The poached pear dessert is a must, and the clam chowder fantastic.

    Dined on 1/24/2014
    We ordered chowder, oysters, and finally the scallops as a main dish. The first two were excellent, the last was not. The bed of "short rib meat" the scallops sat on was almost inedible because it was so salty. My husband thought it tasted more like corned beef hash. Just a weird combo that didn't work. Everything else including the service was great.

    We really enjoy the food and service. We have been here three times now and each time we were not disappointed! The samplers of beer, oysters and scotch are a great way to try things out. There was nothing on the samplers we did not enjoy. The duck is wonderful, the steaks amazing and the seafood is very flavorful. The scallops in particular are a great treat! Cooked to perfection and paired with other great tastes. The only thing I can even remotely suggest to them is watch the octopus, the pieces I had were very tough. But overall a wonderful experience and great way to start the evening!

    We went to Brooklyn for New Year's Eve as a party of 4 and had a great meal. & service. Even though they were very busy, we didn't feel rushed while at the same time they made sure we were not going to be late for our evening plans. We had 1 1/2 dozen oysters which were all delicious & fresh. Our cocktails were prepared very well and were generous. The salads & entrees were excellent; we had the lamb shank, bouillabaisse, scallops and mussels. All were fresh, beautifully prepared and tasted wonderful. I also like the nice selection of wines at affordable prices, as well as higher end wines for those who want one. Our server was friendly and efficient. All in all, we had a great dining experience from start to finish.
