Literally the best bread pudding I have ever had! Our server was awesome and we felt well taken care of by every staff member there. We'll be back!

If you’re looking for a nice dinner with the family, definitely look elsewhere. It’s more bar than grill, is very noisy since it is a small establishment and the food was hit or miss. The staff is friendly and attentive though. Seems like a good place for drinks with friends.

I have tried this restaurant three times for brunch and every time I walk out wondering why I came back, this is definitely the last time. The food is tasteless and bland. I am pretty sure I know how to make eggs better than The way it is prepared there.

Met some friends from out of town. Everyone loved the place. We sat on the back patio, it started the rain but they had large umbrellas and heaters so we didn't have to move.

I loved eating outside but when we arrived there were people in the next door restaurant that had screaming kids. After they left, it was lovely. Kudos to the young man working there that ran down the street after us to give us a birthday card left on the table. Super nice!

I've been to the 520 many times mostly for drinks but this visit was disappointing. The noise level was absurd to the point we were shouting at each other to hold a conversation. DO NOT sit in the middle of the room. Also the salmon was undercooked so they brought me another one. The staff was good but had to shout the specials. This was a Tuesday!

This restaurant is primarily a bar. As such, it is very good. If you want a quieter table and the weather permits, book an outside table. If you want a lively bar scene, this is perfect. Service is a bit slow as previously noted.

Service was excellent. Food was great and ambience was very nice. Great outdoor seating both on the sidewalk and on the outdoor patio. Great for families, after work get together, or friends getting together for dinner or drinks. Easy walk from all of downtown Bellevue makes the 520 a great Happy Hour location.
