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.

Good neighborhood Bar & Grill with several TV's around to watch games. Seating is fairly close together, so might not be the greatest for that intimate dinner, but good place to hang with your friends. Food was straight forward and well prepared.

Atmosphere was nice, we sat outside. Server was fast and efficient. We went at 3:00 which is when Happy Hour starts. We ordered the Fontina Grilled cheese and the Hummus plate. Both were excellent but the price even at just $6.00 was overpriced. Less than 1/2 the size of a regular entrée at 1/2 the price of the full size. My Cadillac Margarita was unlike any Cadillac Margarita I have ever had. Not in a good way. It had a lot of citrus and citrus pulp in it. Was not a fan. Would not order at Happy Hour again. Will go back though to try other items.

520 Bar & Grill did a great job with us - a party of 13 - at the busy 5 o'clock hour on a weeknight.
We made a reservation ahead of time and they had a nice table set up for us in the bar area. Only downside was the short happy hour - most of the party arrived after 6pm, missing the low prices on drinks/apps.

3 staff members took care of us - the service is excellent. Spot-on food recommendations, too! Thank you.
