I’ve been here a couple of times and it was a zoo both visits. It’s a small space, with too many tables that were too close together. The noise level made it hard to have conversation. Our table was just inside the patio door so it was drafty with the door opening the whole time. Servers and customers passing our table to get to the patio were constantly bumping in to us. The wait staff were trying to turn tables over quickly so we felt rushed. That said, they were pleasant, the food was fine, and prices were decent. There are so many choices in Bellevue, that we’ll move on.
Met a friend for dinner. We had a reservation in my name and I arrived first; the server knew my name and assured me that my friend would be brought to the table upon her arrival. When my friend arrived and gave my name, the server seated her on the patio (I was seated indoors). After waiting quite a while, she finally got up and found me by searching around the restaurant on her own.
Food was fine, not special.
Best thing was that they did not make us feel rushed as we stayed and talked quite a long time after finishing our meals.
Good food. Can only get eggs scrambled which makes me wonders if they get their eggs in cartons. Music was breaking in and out which was distracting. Good service by the staff.
Wait staff was super friendly, polite and gracious too!
Service should improve. Table for 7 and server had difficulty even just getting silverware out to table. My guests waiting for the server to come by a couple of time before they could even place an order for beer as she kept missing them. Food is good, good people watching. Good drinks. Service could definitely be better.
On a different time we waited 10 minutes or more just for water at the bar...and it was not busy at all. Bartender finally decided to pour it, it took 20 seconds.
Good food. Service was a little slow. And she could come back a little more often. Empty drinks for quite a while. But other than than that will definitely be back.
I really like the 520. The menus is really great and the owners and staff are very sweet people. What I don't like so much is the NOISE! Not sure why this place is so loud... lunch, dinner or cocktails it is always very LOUD (inside) and difficult to relax and converse. Call me crazy.... I'll be back... :)
My parents and I went to 520 Bar & Grill to have a celebratory new-job-dinner. We all ordered the burger and I added the avocado and bacon to mine. They exceeded my already high expectations... absolutely delicious, fresh ingredients and big portions too!! The service was also excellent. I brought my dog, so we sat outside on the patio. It was cold but we were brought blankets and seat cushions for our comfort. They even brought my dog a bowl of water. Definitely will be back!!
Very pleasantly surprised. Looks like a sports bar, but the brunch we had was delicious and the service was very pleasant.
This was my first experience and I'll definitely go back; such a gem in the middle of Old Bellevue. The menu is eclectic and unusual; the setting is vibrantly alive; the food was high quality and prepared perfectly. Our server, Brook, was friendly, funny, and attentive without interrupting our conversation unnecessarily. One of my new favorites for sure!
When they say their nachos are great here, they really mean great!! Most fabulous evening and was only out to play with my other half. Cocktails were amazing. Ambience is bustling. Hostess and servers were accommodating and attentive and not in your face at all! Great evening will absolutely be back :)
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!
It was nice, the servers took a little longer than expected for everything. The food was good, however.
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.
The Blackberry Margarita is to die for and the service is amazing
Our waitress was fabulous. Very professional and accommodatating . She was very knowledgeable with the menu and help use decide what to order. We will diffently come back and also with a recommendation of our server try your Restraunt in Lincoln Square location.
The food is always good. A bit loud so good for kids.
It's a great place for lunch but is really loud when it's packed for dinner. Great food and a good value in Bellevue.
Been a handful of times and never been disappointed. Great food, drinks and friendly staff!
We had a great friends get together. Great food and great house red wines cab and merlot!!! We will be back!!
Fantastic Bloody Mary. The waitress recommended a green chili Bloody w bacon. I loved it. Had 2!
Good food, friendly service! Overall was a nice brunch - the restaurant was definitely crowded, but the food still came out quickly and tasted great.
Steak salad is great. A little too loud bar atmosphere for lunch.
Fantastic salad and pulled pork sandwich today ay lunch. Our service was stellar!!
We love this place for Happy Hours and game days. Bar staff darling and on point. Only complaint is need new and bigger TV's. Cheers.
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.
Second time here in a month. Will go again. Great food, fairly priced. Great staff.
BLT today was good, fish part of fish and chips 5 nights ago was Terrible. Bread and batter inedible. Try Seattle Yacht club cod and chips.
Gute Location. Wenn ich in Bellevue bin versuche ich immer im 520 vorbei zu schauen. Essen super, Ambiente sehr gut.
Always a good time, good food, good atmosphere and pretty good service. We go for happy hour or a date night
I would recommend
Good variety and nice setting for outdoor seating. Enjoyed.
Delicious food and a great place to watch games with friends!
tables are on top of each other inside. Initial reception good, then got forgotten by bartender/server. Had high hopes, mediocre in the end.
Our server, Tavin was an amazing server. Excellent recommendations for food and beverages.
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!
Very attentive waiter. Great food, fantastic outdoor seating area.
We went to 520 Bar & Grill to celebrate my birthday. The staff were amazing, the food and beverages were delicious. I had the French 44 and the seared cod tacos.
UGH! Way too loud to talk, uncomfortable seating, and my fish was so dried out and over cooked I had to send it back. On the plus side, our server was absolutely a doll! What a great lady!!
Food was good, server was nonexistent- she spent more time behind the bar learning to make drinks
