Highly recommend it!!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMEuropean FlairTook advantage of the 'pre-theatre' menu before venturing out to the take in the 'Jersey Boys'. What a great combination! Thank you to the entire staff at RN74 who made our special evening truly memorable. Love the history of this restaurant. The food was excellent and all about the presentation.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a treat to go here!It's hard to find much at fault with this fine restaurant. The food is creative and inspired, the wine list is above and beyond most of the competition and there is a raw energy that exudes as you sit, enjoy and take it all in.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat!The service was over the top good, which is why I didn't give the food fives! But in reality, everything was 5's. We are in Seattle part-time and this is the best place so far. I hate to say that because I want to be able to get a reservation next time I'm in town!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything is goodNo matter what you order, the favors are amazing! Recommend trying thing you've never had before. Our server, Phillip, was fantastic.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this placeExcellent food and great service. The noise level is a real challenge for conversation, but the visual ambiance is great.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe total dining experienceThe total dining experience far exceeded our expectations and we would stongly recommend RN 74 to all those who appreciate service, food quality, and atmosphere.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst TimersOur first experience at RN74 before the theater. As Eastsiders, we hadn't made it in until this week, but we will be back again (and again). Food and service were impeccable. Atmosphere was a bit noisy for a "romantic" occasion (our anniversary) but that seems to be the norm in restaurants now, so we just accept it! Wine list and servers' knowledge of it were both among the best we have experienced in Seattle. Great evening.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent ExperienceEnjoyed everything about the dinner. The place was very busy but seemed there was a quick turn. The server was very aware of the menu and the specials and gave some very good suggestions. Jessie the manager was good and made sure we pleased.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMgemWe loved everything about RN74, great menu, food and amazing staff! Will be back again and again!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Foie Gras sliders!Amazing Foie Gras sliders! Everything was incredible with some subtly complex flavor profiles, and wine pairing recommendation was spot on. Every person that works there was so excited about the food and attentive to us. It was an incredible customer service experience. Thank you!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful food, attentivewonderful food, attentive service, but crowded seating and very noisy. At least the noise makes it hard to hear conversations at adjacent tables.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch is perfect!!Lunch is terrific as they have their great regular options as well as a fresh sheet! Salads are my fave and I have been here 74 times for lunch (they kept count) and still love it because the service and food are always outstanding! Be sure to try and coconut lime sorbet or like ice cream, a must for a perfect finish to your meal!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was really good as usual.It was really good as usual. Nothing outstanding but a fun place to be for an evening.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI had lunch at RN 74, theI had lunch at RN 74, the ambiance was vivacious and sleek. The waiter was extremely considerate asking about time constraints -love it- when he had take our orders. Our table enjoyed the Tomato Fondue (ie an inventive way to serve tomato soup with grilled cheese), Fish & Chips, Chicken with mushrooms, and the lamb burger. All were visually appetizing. The two with the lamb burger and chicken were extremely happy with their meal. The cod was fair. We'd all definitely go back.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was one if the best diningThis was one if the best dining experiences in Seattle. We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary s (both couples). The ambience, service, and interesting delicious food was perfect. The staff were very attentive to the fact we were going to an event that required us to be out the door by a specific time. We will be back, THANK YOU!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMRN74 leaves your mouth wateringRN74 was true to its concept of contemporary French. Their wine list is truly remarkable with old world selections and U.S. wine region favorites. We particularly enjoyed the beef bourginon, black cod, and ribeye encased in salt. Dessert was a true work of art - beignets and fried apple pie. The service was outstanding. We will be repeating our visit in the near future.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI would definitely recommendI would definitely recommend RN74. The service was very attentive and the staff was very knowledgeable about the dishes. It was lively but you can still have conversations at your table. I think the portions are a little off. I ordered the bone marrow appetizers and scallops entree. The marrow plate was huge and had three segments and a lot of bread. On the other hand, I only had 3 small scallop with a bit of cauliflower as an entree. However, the flavors and plating was definitely there.
One of my friends got the lobster pot pie served table side. It definitely seems worth if you are looking for a spurge.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat tasting menu with amazingGreat tasting menu with amazing wine pairing ! We had one of the best table of the restaurant. The food was delicious and thw wines too. The service was really personalized ! We spent a great night at the Rn74 !4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter listening to all thatAfter listening to all that hype, I was excited. I have to say, the food was very good, but nothing too memorable. Would I go back, yes. It's a good place to try for new comers.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Food, seasonal menusWonderful Food, seasonal menus the service is Superior4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMRN74 is a great spot to seeRN74 is a great spot to see and be seen, but thankfully it's also a great restaurant. The food from appetizers to dessert was excellent. My only quibble would be my black cod was almost too delicate, it lacked a certain "edge" that would have made it memorable. However, the accompanying veggies - oyster mushrooms and bok choy - were heavenly! My friend's steak was apparently fabulous, as I didn't hear any real discernable words coming from him the entire time he was eating it. This was a birthday dinner for that friend, his first time to RN74, and he was wowed. It was not my first time, however. And I'll be back again!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasantly surprised by howPleasantly surprised by how fabulous the food was. Great service. Really fun place.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Pinot Noir selection,Amazing Pinot Noir selection, particularly Burgundies.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and Extensive Wine ListFood quality was excellent, with good ingredients used that accentuated flavour combinations. Wine selection was extensive, but it took three wines to find the right one - keep in mind that I was preferring French that night, and the list has a high incidence of Washington and Oregon. Service was solicitous and even a bit overboard, but this is better than the opposite. The main attraction was the food for sure.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMI'll be backThe food was awesome, delicious and beautifully presented. We ordered the sliders as an appetizer - just sublime. Our group hadWe loved the train station style wine-list updater. However, the absolute highlight of the night were the desserts. The Creme Brûlée is insane! Presentation of the desserts was incredible. Fun and delicious night out.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI always go for the wine listI always go for the wine list but the food and service are always great as well.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service. WeGreat food and service. We enjoyed the pre theater menu. Portions are smaller on that menu which we were told before we ordered. Regular prices are high range. The service was very good. The restaurant is a bit noisy, so it's not the best if you are looking for a quiet evening. My only complaint is that many of the tables are very close together.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first visit toThis was our first visit to RN74 and now we wonder why we waited so long...3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst VisitGreat food in a lively spot. Mia did a great job at the bar making sure everyone was welcome!!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food! Love the cocktailsFantastic food! Love the cocktails and quality wine list. Snacks in the bar or a table in the restaurant are equally enjoyable. Service is superb.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMRN74 Rocks!Very loud bar scene when we arrived on a Friday night (a good sign). We were seated at a table and asked if we could be moved to a booth, as it may be less noisey.
The manager came out and personally seated us at a booth (which was more quiet), gave us his card and told us to email him personally if we wanted a booth next time we come! We were very impressed with his personal service and that of the staff. Dinner was very good; we had the tomato soup fondue with grilled cheese - yummy! The taglietelle with truffle oil, mushrooms and brocollini was awesome and the black cod was scrumptious! Be sure and save room for dessert! We will definitely go back. It will be a treat whatever occasion we celebrate! Highly recommend!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a find!What a find! From the vast wine list, the sommelier suggested a wonderful bottle of unoaked chardonney from a small California vineyard. This rich taste went very well with our orders of wild Alaskan cod. We savored each bite. Although we had to wait a while for the sommelier, the rest of the service was fast, friendly and efficient. We will return.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAdded to our favorites list.The staff was amazing. Our glasses of water were refilled without asking throughout the night. The waitress was energetic, offered great ideas from the menu, and attentive. The food was outstanding - cooked perfectly, presentation was amazing, and the flavors left you wanting more. The foie gras sliders is a must have if that is your "thing". The tomato bisque fondue is something I would specifically come back for, and we were offered another serving of grilled cheese sandwich bites to finish off the tomato bisque. The short rib was tender and melted in your mouth. The duck fat seared filet was cooked perfectly and tender as well. They have a great wine selection as well as scotch whiskey. The desserts are also a must try.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was superb. TheThe service was superb. The food was elegantly served, exquisitely prepared, and amply portioned. The decor was a bit confused and not special.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredible food but reallyIncredible food but really noisy. I had the tasting menu for March with the Loire valley wine pairing and all I can say is oh. my. God. Five courses presented very artistically by very knowledgable wait staff and paired with almost too generous pours of Loire valley wines that were just superb. $130 for food and wine but it was worth it to me.
The only downside was the noise level was really high for us (couple in late 50s) - barely could hear the wait staff at times. Interior has alot of hard surfaces with no real sound deadening so it is not surprising that it is loud at times. I think the theater crowd was there and it did get better later on in the evening.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMA great wine-restaurant in SeattleRN74 is the go-to place for a fantastic French dinner. Especially for the wines. The staff is great and the kitchen will bend over backward to accommodate. And did I mention the wine list? It's quite impressive and contains both trophy bottles and quite a few that very good without requiring the net worth of Bill Gates to afford. The restaurant is a good pre-theater, pre-symphony choice because of it's proximity. Valet parking at the restaurant is easy (and I *think* you can leave it with them until after the show).3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMOysters, Bone Marrow, Foie Gras!!!Our server was Pearl and she made our experience just absolutely perfect! We went in for a late dinner but we ordered many small plates and they were all delicious. Oysters, bone marrow, foie gras sliders, caesar salad (with a fantastic anchovies dressing), marinated olives and of course champagne!! We'll definitely go back. Again - Pearl knows how to serve and pace the food and give you space.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMService excellent. StaffService excellent. Staff very attentive and go out of their way. Food was good but not top notch. If had great food would have been outstanding by far. Has great wine list though.2/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother fine meal. Very wellAnother fine meal. Very well prepared. Potato leek soup and roasted duck breast, paired with Louis Latour 'Corton' Grand cru, Burgundy, 2002. Will definitely return.12/22/2012 12:00:00 AM
