    This isn't a knock-your-socks off place, but sometimes you want to keep those socks on and have a nice, easy, tasty dinner without breaking the bank completely or driving far from home. Anthony's fills the bill reliably. We had the Sunset Dinner specials, a pretty good deal.

  • A wedding anniversary tradition
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 6/3/2014
    My wife and I have made it somewhat of an annual tradition to try and celebrate our wedding anniversary with dinner at Anthony's. The food and scenic view is really something that we look forward to. We are fortunate in celebrating our anniversary in June and we can enjoy the copper river salmon that Anthony's prepares. We have been blessed to be married for 47 years and when we have been able to dine at Anthony's it has always been very special for us.

    The Copper River salmon was outstanding, fixed like only Anthony's seems to be able to do and has done for me for the past 25 years. I travel to Bellevue for business and when I'm there during Copper River salmon season, I always have dinner at Anthony's, even during the years when the abandoned ghost ship was tied up and blocking the view! With Crab Cracker gone and 3rd Floor Fish Café out, this is it folks and still the best.

    Copper River Salmon. We were fortunate enough to make our reservation during the beginning of Copper River Salmon season. All 5 of us ordered it, and were delighted. The service was extraordinary. My wife has food allergies, and the server and kitchen were extremely accommodating, checking for ingredients and making sure her dinner was outstanding. Highly recommend.

    The salmon was a little lack luster. I expected more from a Sea Food Restaurant. I was hoping it would blow me away and it was quite average to bland. Same with the mashed potatoes.

  • Copper River Salmon? Really?

    Dined on 5/16/2014
    1st Day of Copper River Salmon season - YAY!. Taken to probably the worst table in the house, overlooking a cash register and pushed back into the farthest corner of the place, with poor views. I complained and were reseated - but a sign of things to come. I'm thinking - they think we're rubes. For meals, we all bought the $40 King Copper River Salmon on Day 1. We expected to get the succulent, red darlings that people expect from this fabulous catch. Instead we received what looked and tasted like a nice farm catch... a dryish, very pale pink filet that disappointed. Comparing notes at home, we both had the same idea-baited and switched to a farm raised fish? Unthinkable, but hard not to come to that conclusion. Never going back.

    Anthony's Home Port has a beautiful view of the Kirkland Marina, Lake Washington, and the Seattle skyline. The wait staff was very attentive and quick to seat me when I showed up early for my reservation. The menu is very northwest and mainly consists of seafood. The non-seafood items are fairly limited. The prices are a little high, but the portions are of reasonable size. The food was very good, but the ambience and view are the highlight. The noise level was on the quiet side which also helps enhance the atmosphere.

    Our neighbors just moved here from out of state, so we recommended we go to Anthony's in Kirkland. It was outstanding, service was wonderful. We were able to visit before ordering. Wait staff did not rush us to order, nor did they rush us to leave. We spend 3 1/2 hrs at the table, our friends were very impressed.

  • No taste
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 4/16/2014
    I was extremely disappointed in the food. No taste, extremely bland. We had an appetizer with lobster, mango and avacado that looked like a scrambled mess. My wife's salmon was a special and it was terrible. On a good note, the service was excellent and the food came out in perfect succession. I just wish it would have tasted better for the price. This was one of the few date nights my wife and I get. We won't be coming back.

    Heard great things. Didn't experience it here. The hostess never made eye contact with us when we checked in for our rez. We had to wait 10 min past our rez. It took another 10 before the waitress came to take our order. No bread, no drinks offered at that point. My husband ordered the wild Alaskan salmon and I had the lingcod. Both were mushy and tasteless. I didn't have to chew; I just mushed the food between my tongue and the roof of my mouth. The waitress never came by to check on how we were doing until it was time to pay. The only thing I did like was my drink: basil pom. The scene was beautiful despite the gloomy, rainy weather. Noise level was loud; not ideal for romantic dinner for two.

    My frist time here and was stunned by the great view overlooking Lake of Washington and the skyline of Seattle downtown. Restaurant itself is a little crowded so small group has the best chance to sit by the window. Ordered calamari as appetizer and the batter was thick and not crispy. Clam chowder was just ok, nothing special. Claimed they serve freshest seafood so I had cod, husband had salmon. Both our fish dishes were overcooked and dry. My cod was covered with white/tartar sauce so I can not taste if the fish is fresh or not. Service was good except sent the wrong dessert to my husband but we were lazy to complain because everything seems to take forever to arrive.

    The weather in Bellevue was wonderful on Sunday - sunny and near 70 - so we decided we wanted to go someplace to eat where we could enjoy the wonderful weather. Anthony's in Kirkland was a perfect choice - we went upstairs to the bar to have a glass of wine while we waited for our table to be prepared - and the timing was such that we got to see a wonderful sunset over Lake Washington. It was Restaurant Week in Seattle so we chose 2 of the special meals that Anthony's was offering - the Lingcod and the Salmon. Both were excellent. The view of Lake Washington, the ambiance and the food were all great this night. We will be back!

    Sunday evening was very busy, although we had booked there was no table available and we were advised to find a table upstairs. Service was friendly but not up to expectations. Food arrived before our drinks arrived. Main meal arrived too quickly and before we had the opportunity to order wine. However sunset view was gorgeous, waitress was friendly and helpful and thanked us for our patience on an exceptionally busy night. The cod was delicious.

    We went for a romantic dinner and we had a nice table with a view. They still had the heart decorations up and had the special holiday drinks, so we were glad that we had waited until the next day when we were kid free and it was not so crowded. The special red drinks were inventive and delicious. Food was delicious. Service was great. Our waitress made us feel special and we lingered a long while over dessert and coffee. We didn't feel rushed and really enjoyed the evening.

    It has been several years since the last time we ate at Anthony's. My wife had some great news and she wanted to celebrate with the family by going out to Anthony's...like her parents did when she was a kid. She really wanted crab - which is what she always ordered whenever we went. 5 or 6 years ago I participated in a focused group interview by Anthony's. I gave it raving reviews - great food, spectacular view, and amazing service...it was all true. Unfortunately it is no longer the case. They now have 1/2 a crab or two 3 oz. crab cakes! The snap peas were delicious except that they failed to pull the stems from them! I had their "Signature" NY Steak (fail). It was tough and tasteless. The tempura asparagus was the only saving grace.

    We enjoyed eating at Anthony's HomePort very much. A booth with a close-up view of the boats and view of the Lake and Seattle at dusk was really romantic. OpenTable was great for making our reservations since we were able to specify our desires for seating. The meals, seared ahi and silver salmon, were delicious. Anthony's is somewhat expensive, but well worth the price.

    We chose Anthony's for an "early bird dinner" before a performance at the Krikland Performance Center. It was a good choice, though I had someconcerns that the meal might be skimpy since it was on a special menu. I was wrong. The cajun style Rock Fish was delicious; just spicey enough. The shrimp cocktail was small, but a nice complement to the salad, and the dessert was a nice finish. Our server was spot on and attentive, and the hostess read and accomodated our seating request.

    I love Anthony's and this was my first time back after a rather dismal experience a couple of months ago. The Manager gave us a special invitation back and came to our table to meet and greet which I found professional and over and above for customer service. All that said I find it difficult to say that the service was terrible. We waited over 20 minutes between finishing our salads and getting our entrees and then the "medium" steak I ordered came rare but the server never returned to tell her about it. I was very surprised by the sad level of service after my last visit so I think it is time to look elsewhere for that relaxing dinner experience.

    Met friends for a Sunday brunch at the Kirkland location. They recently moved to Washington state and this was their first time exploring the Eastside. We had a very nice window table overlooking the boat slips and Lake Washington. The servers were friendly and very good at checking up on water and coffee refills, removing finished plates and keeping us satisfied. The portions were large, vibrant looking, and very fragrant and flavorful. Without a doubt I would recommend others to this location for brunch or dinner.
