We continue to love Bethany's table and had a lovely meal there this past weekend. We were lucky enough to have Keri as our server, who is always so pleasant and genuine. She makes every meal there even better with her wonderful and attentive service. We plan to return again and again!

Nice little neighborhood place. I brought my friend there who used to live in the area, and didn’t even know it existed!
The atmosphere is very relaxed, looked like there were a few families and friends that visit this place regularly.
I ordered two items from their daily special - both soup and sandwich were delicious. My friend ordered entree salad that looked very good too. We both finished our lunch with pistachio affogato - best I’ve ever had anywhere. Overall very good value for casual meal.

I made a reservation for a party of 4 at 12:15. This was a bad idea because the place filled quickly after we sat down and service was very slow. We finally ordered drinks which were very slow. Then we finally ordered our lunch which was very slow. They should give some priority to those who make the trouble to have a reservation and serve them quicker.
My recommendation, because Bethany Table's food is very good, is to not come at lunch time. If you are flexible, come at 1:30 or 2. Next time I will.

We went for a relaxing dinner and we had a great time. There was a very rude patron that was the only bummer to the whole experience but once he left and the restaurant took a deep breath of fresh air after his toxicity we all enjoyed our dinner.

Service was great and the food was wonderful. I had grilled halibut it was perfection! I would say my only disappointment is in how close the tables are to your neighbor. They were however, nearly filled to capacity on a Tuesday night so I know they are trying to serve as many as possible. I know I was happy to have a table!

Always a nice neighborhood place to eat! Friendly, fairly quiet and the meals are delectable! My first choice for dining out!
The Manhattan drink is just the right balance of liquors and the wine pours are full!
The beet salad with cheese crumbled was a great start and the seafood pasta dish flavorful!
A good variety to choose from for dessert! Yummy!

You can appreciate the passion, love, sweat and happy tears that makes this amazing restaurant. The chef creates dishes that are so special, simple, but yet so complex that you can tell it’s hand-picked ingredients. This restaurant is great as a treat, or a nice light meal to remind you what well prepared dishes should taste like. A fantastic local gem.

We travel from Olympia several times a year to pick up our wine club purchase and always stop at Bethany's Table. Great staff and fantastic food. I only wish the lamb shank could have been offered with a choice of noodles or the saffron rice.

Great food, friendly staff, comfortable yet finer dining atmosphere. My boyfriend is a heavy pasta eater and he claimed that the Fall Pasta was the best he has ever had. I had the Steak Frites. It was delicious. The only issue I had was that it was a bit chewy, but I ordered it more cooked than the server recommended, so that is probably due to my poor ordering. We ordered the Booker's 7 year Bourbon for dessert and it was an amazing finish to a great dinner. We will be back!

Overall it was a great experience. The food was fantastic, from the Crab Pasta to the Pork Chop to the Tenderloin special - all very tasty and good sized portions. When we arrived at 6:00 it was not too crowded, but by the time we left, it was full and very loud. It was also very dark in there, at least at the table we were sitting at. The interior didn't necessarily match what I would expect based on their menu and prices. It wasn't bad - I would describe it as "quaint" I guess. Service was mostly good. Maybe a little uptight. And although the timing was good throughout the dinner service, it took forever to pay. Ending a great experience on that note was a little bit of a letdown. Bottom line it was a great meal and I will be back for sure!

we are somewhat regulars at Bethany's Table so this wasn't our first visit. we do go there for happy hour and love the appetizers they offer. this outing was for a birthday and everything went very well. it is kind of close quarters so its hard not to overhear your neighbors but thats not much of an issue. food was excellent, I had the fall pasta dish with crab, by wife had the fall pasta dish and my son had the halibut special. we also split a couple of Caesar salads amongst the three of us and I have to say their Caesars are absolutely the best. service was excellent but then it usually is. oh, they make great martini's too.

This was just another if the many meals we have had at Bethany’s Table since it opened. This place has been a neighborhood gem & our favorite restaurant for years. Janet, Dave & their waitstaff do a great job of making their customers feel welcomed & serving them some of the most interesting, delicious meals we have ever had.
The halibut we all ordered was cooked to perfection & beautifully presented. The server was attentive & engaged us in friendly conversation. She recommended a very good bottle of wine. Great experience.
