- Wonderful mealTimboDined on 3/26/2014We went to the Steelhead diner on the 30 for 30 deal and were amazingly surprised. The food was plentiful and very good plus the wine and other beverage offerings were nice.Special Features:
- NIce dinnerKristineDined on 3/24/2014We enjoyed our meal at Steelhead Diner. The soup was especially good and so was the salad. We chose items off of a prix fixe menu.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Loved the service and good foodLizLarsDined on 3/24/2014We came for Diner Around Seattle and sat outside on the small deck. We had the soup and flafel for starters. The soup had good flavor, but the flafel was more interesting. My husband had the steak for a main and loved it. I had the mahi mahi and it was nicely done, but a bit too heavy on the crust topping. My favorite by far was the cheesecake for dessert. Divine! Excellent service and good drinks. An enjoyable experience.Special Features:
- Not dining al fresco!OpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 3/24/2014It was freezing in the restaurant. We all ate with our coats on. Waitress mumbled something about needing the door to the deck open. Great. This is Seattle in March. The sun is out but it is still COLD. The food was pretty good but not fabulous like previous visits.Special Features:
- Always a great dinner!ElkArcherVIPDined on 3/20/2014Everything was awesome. Service from start to finish was impeccable. The food is creative, constantly changing and reflects both local and seasonal sourcing.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- I always like to jump at opportunitKittyLoverDined on 3/20/2014I always like to jump at opportunities to try new restaurants during Dine Around Seattle and/or Restaurant Week. Very glad I was able to try this place. Love the friendly atmosphere, and the food was great. Had a salad that was fresh and their Tortilla Soup was delicious, as well as the dessert. Definitely would consider coming back. In fact look forward to checking out the outside dining in the summer.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Prime location failed to deliverWine4MeVIPDined on 3/19/2014You can't beat the location. Some of the food was over cooked. We were a party of six and the waiter couldn't bring all the plates at the same time. there was 2 to 3 minutes between the first delivery and the last.
- Love this placestevemarseattleVIPDined on 3/18/20142nd time here for lunch. Food is spectacular and service is great. I must return for dinner sometime bSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Decent NW FareAnthDined on 3/15/2014I may be picky - this was my choice to take a small group of out of towners. It is better than a generic chain, and the overpriced downtown tourist trap places, and has a wide variety of options for different palates. It generally feels easy and relaxed. But given my druthers I'd go plenty of other places first for food and ambience. Service was very good if slightly canned, which kind of fits.Special Features:
- So-SochefpepeVIPDined on 3/15/2014My girlfriend and I ate here while visiting Pike Place Market and found it to be just okay. The restaurant was crowded with tourists and the menu was what you would expect of a diner. Service was slow and our soups came out at the same time as our entrees. The crab cakes were quite good (Tom Douglas' signature item I understand) but the sandwiches were disappointingly small and cold (even the "hot" ones). This restaurant just didn't match the quality of Dahlia Lounge or Etta's, and I doubt we will go back.Special Features:
- Enjoyed another Dine AroundsfseattleVIPDined on 3/13/2014Enjoyed another Dine Around Seattle $15 3-course lunch (3 choices offered for each course). For appetizer selected the Crispy Roasted Garlic & Herb Falafel with 4 falafel deep-fried balls and a pickled carrot salad; entree selected the Cornmeal Crusted Rockfish Po’ Boy with French fries; and for dessert chose a delicious slice of Theo Chocolate Pecan Pie. All courses were excellent and not rushed. The rockfish po'boy with fries arrived hot and was very filling. A basket of soft bread with butter preceded the meal. Saul provided excellent service.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Superb!ElizDined on 3/12/2014Found this thanks to Dine Around. We loved this place: the ambiance, service, food, excellent by the glass wine list. We love finding new favorite dining spots when we visit Seattle. This is a keeper to return to. Glad Dine Around exists for new discoveries.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Services extraordinarire!OpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 3/11/2014Our server was awesome ... And the food matched nicely!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- First time's a charmPLCMDined on 3/10/2014Family gathered one by one and the wait staff was very graceful and accommodating, even though it was a very busy Monday evening. Drink and food were wonderful: the glowing yelp reviews about the crab cake starter were spot on. The Cioppino was absolutely marvelous...next time I would split this with someone, as is sized to share. After a meal like that, finish with mango sorbet and coffee. Very nice wine list, including splits of decent labels. I am very anxious to return again!
- Great local spotfoodie4everDined on 3/2/2014Steelhead Diner is a place that is perfect to bring visitors to, and even better to return to again and again as a local, it's that good. The food is fabulous, and the service is just the right amount of friendly attention without being overbearing.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good place for lunchFaceVIPDined on 2/24/2014We stopped in for a couple drinks and a quick snack and we were pleasantly surprised. The food is good and so are the drinks. Service was standard.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fabulous mealMalagamauiVIPDined on 2/21/2014We had dinner twice at Steelhead Diner on our last visit to Seattle. The salmon with cherries, smoked almonds and crispy kale was delicious, so good that my husband and I had it both times. One of the best salon meals we have ever eaten. Delicious is all we can say!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- always yummyBellinghamgirlVIPDined on 2/16/2014We can always count on Steelhead for a great brunch - try the steak and eggs, the marchand du vin and mushrooms make it exceptional (and this from someone who doesn't care for mushrooms). Consistently good service, this was probably our fourth or fifth visit.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Tasty food with a good broadPedroVIPDined on 2/15/2014Tasty food with a good broad range of beers and wine. Exemplary serviceSpecial Features:
- Great food and good service.JcaustinDined on 2/14/2014Great food and good service. Was there for valentines day dinner, surprisingly calm with a great atmosphere. I have been here quite a few times and have never been disappointed by the food or staff.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good grub with classy serviceBirthdaygirlDined on 2/14/2014Great lunch place for people who work or play downtown or want a break during their trek through the Pike Place Market. Kid-friendly but classy enough for the grown-ups,too.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- DisappointmentBirthdayBlissVIPDined on 2/7/2014In the age of so many special dietary needs one would think gluten intolerance would be accommodated in a restaurant. There was one GF dessert and it was no longer available at 7:30 on a Friday evening. Really poor planning. This was the second year in a row I went there for my birthday. Last year I told them on my reservation, but there was no mention made of my celebration. So I just didn't mention it this year. The rest of the food was really good and our server was great.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good SeafoodOpenTable Diner Since 2008VIPDined on 2/6/2014It was nice to have Salmon and have it cooked to order. It was tender and moist. My wife enjoyed her fish tacos. Our server was great and the restaurant is very nice looking inside.Special Features:
- Seafood lovers from MontanadisappointedDined on 2/1/2014Seafood lovers from Montana were my guests. Kasu cod was "out" at 7:30. Had to ask twice for forks and finally took one from the next table. Had to ask for a spoon for the cioppino. Eyrie pinot was so thin as to not merit the title "wine." A substitute should have been offered. Had to ask for dessert menus and dessert was a looong time coming. Had to ask for a spoon for dessert. Two boisterous birthday tables got lots of attention but the details were sorely missing at ours including attention from mid meal on. Pot d'creme was good as was the sorbet. I was embarrassed.Special Features:
- Oldie, goodieShawnADined on 1/30/2014Some of the reviews said this place is "past its prime." That's crazy. The service is great and the food is awesome. It's not at al touristy, even though it could be given the location. It's a classic Northwest diner - with a welcoming feel and great food.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- 2 vanvouverites dine in seattleOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 1/24/2014The mussels were good lots of tomatoe and garlic. Sicilian I think. Only a couple of entrays that. Caught my eye my friend had salmon a with blue cheese and kale and figs. It was fabulous my sablefsh was good too but not as unique as the salmon dish. Lg portions good thing we split the musselsSpecial Features:
- Winter birthday in SeattleSeattleFanDined on 1/20/2014This is by far one of the best meals I've experienced - anywhere! The salmon was prepared perfectly! All our dishes were unique and delicious! We tried the Lavendar salad, Pork Belly, Catfish... All just superb! A true find in the vibrant Seattle restaurant scene... Not to be missed!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- UnderwhelmedTom450VIPDined on 1/19/2014The menu reads great but the food is average at best. The fried chicken was over cooked and heavily battered. The salmon was just ok. Avoid the oysters, small and tasteless. Atmosphere was cold and dark. Pictures the the internet look nothing like the inside of this restaurant. Avoid. Go to Etta's around the corner for truly fabulous food.
- Getting tired...PaulDined on 1/19/2014We've had Steelhead Diner on our list of places to eat dinner the last few years on our twice a year trip to Seattle. The service has been great. We've always gotten the table we requested (through Open Table). I guess that we're realizing that there are very few fish options (for a place called Steelhead Diner). The food is just plain :-/ The prices are high for the quality. Boring. The fish and chips were very good, but they're fish and chips. We'll be looking for another place on our next trip.Special Features:
- First Mediocre ExperienceBellevueDinerVIPDined on 1/17/2014We've been here many times and have always loved it. This time, however, we were seated in a backroom they must use for private events. It also houses supply closets, the doors to which kept sliding open at our table. The wait staff covering the room were nice but not very attentive. Our drink order came long after our appetizers. And both appetizers and entrees were delivered a couple at a time, with a (too long) delay between delivery. Inevitably, two or three at the table had food, with the others waiting. The food was not up to the usual standards. My NY Steak seemed to be a pretty low quality piece of meat. Lots of sinew and inedible fat. Difficult to cut. I didn't send it back because we had already waited too long.
- Overpriced...GSreeVIPDined on 1/10/2014I was very disappointed with the portion sizes given the prices. I ordered the black cod dish ($37), which was very tasty, but also was sized barely larger than an appetizer. The description indicated 3 components beyond the fish that ended up being just barely present. The feel of the restaurant and portions don't match the prices in my experience eating around town.
- Good foodMGoelVIPDined on 1/9/2014I've been to Steelhead several times b/c I work right next door. Food is consistently good and fresh w/ new seasonal menus coming out each season. Steelhead is a good, solid, reliable place to get a good meal.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Wine Dinnerjmg98118VIPDined on 1/8/2014We attended Steelhead Diners wine dinner, with Willamette Valley Wines. The wines were all very nice, but the food was outstanding. I can't say enough about the scallops with celery root puree, truffle butter, and shaved mushrooms.. Scallops were cooked to perfection and just a serving of the scallops would have been worth the cost.. The braised beef ribs were falling off the fork tender and full of flavor. The Endive salad with grapefruit, nuts and citrus vinaigrette paired so nicely with Pino Gris. Over all one of the best wine dinners we have had.Special Features:
- Mediocre FoodMMMMDined on 12/31/2013Maybe it was an off night - but the food just lacked interest and flavor.Special Features:
- New Years dinerTestoreDined on 12/31/2013My wife and 7 year old daughter had a great time here. I had my first duck, outstanding!, and my wife and daughter loved their meals too. I would go back again if ever I'm back in Seattle. .Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great surprise last minute findOChemistDined on 12/27/2013We found ourselves visiting Seattle shortly after Christmas and did a quick Open Table search. Found Steelhead Diner and it sounded great. It was available on short notice and we really enjoyed our meals. I had the Fish and Chips: large pieces of fish (a bit of excess oil) with excellent fries. My wife had the crabcake and found it to be excellent (she's had many on the East Coast). Our daughter really enjoyed her salad with goat cheese.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- They weren't preparedJanetVIPDined on 12/24/2013We've eaten at Steelhead Diner several times and always had a good meal, so we decided to meet our son and his girlfriend there for Christmas Eve. Our reservation was at 7 pm---so fairly early, but they were out of the fried chicken, our favorite entree. Also, as it turns out--out of a few other choices as well. They apparently did not do a good job of ordering for the evening. We will still go back--I forgive them this one screw up!
- Surpassed my expectationsstarg39Dined on 12/21/2013Having dined at Steelhead before for a business lunch, it was interesting to see the differences for dinner. The crowd was quieter, the wait staff were extremely attentive, even though the the place was packed. Being a party of five we had a variety of meals ordered off the menu and each was delicious, though it was odd to see pepper placed on the tables but no salt. Looking around us, we found the other tables to be the same. Something against salt? Although a bit on the pricey side for our meal, we had a great time and were very impressed with our service. Our server was attentive without being intrusive. Kudos to her for making it a memorable experience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Englishman who loves beerwannabeDined on 12/19/2013I took my husband, who is English, to this pub. He loved the great service. LOVED the seafood options (tater tots and crab cake were DIVINE!) and best of all, loved the beer and the fish and chips. High praise from a Brit.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Bustling DinerLuvstoeatDined on 12/14/2013Creative food, excellent service and moderate prices make this a place we return to often. It is on the loud side which is great when you want to chat with friends, not for romantics. The mussels are the best and all fish dishes are cooked to perfection. My brother had the pork chop which was sublime.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
