Grilled halibut was a tad dry and disappointment from previous visit. But wild rice and kale accompaniments were outstanding. My dining partner ordered lasagne which was a big hit. The elevated division between booths enhanced social distancing and privacy. Iceberg wedge with blue cheese dressing was divine.

It was such a tasty meal with great ambience, we ate here two nights in a row! I thought the Betty Burger was a show stopper the first night, but then: I was introduced to the lasagna. Creamy, and delicious with a robust sauce that I did not want to leave in the bowl!
The servers are hip and happy too!

Food, service and ambience were all outstanding, as was the Betty Draper cocktail. We enjoyed the pumpkin soup, Cobb salad, steak and a Betty burger.

Will definitely return.

Service was great, but the food was honestly pretty awful. Won’t be going back.

We got the Cod dish (very slimy) the cheese plate (decent) and an Aviation & Strawberry Aperol Spritz

A variety of dishes on our table, the chicken, burger and lasagna with the wedge salad and tomato bisque soup as sides! Everyone was pleased and enjoyed their meals! Our server was very good and had assistance from her fellow workers! A pleasant experience! Betty’s did not let us down! Thanks!!

Appreciated how safe it felt. Nice distancing and environmental protections. Server very nice but did not provide desert menus so when asked if we wanted desert we just declined. I had the steak. The red wine reduction sauce was very good but the steak was a bit tough with a lot of gristle. That was disappointing. We will still try them again.

Avoid this place if you can. I booked outdoor dining because of Covid-19 and the seating was not honored. For your health, go somewhere else.

Responded on September 23, 2020

I am incredibly sorry that your reservation request was not carried out. Betty has worked to be diligent about our implementation of extra safety measures; including the removal of tables to allow proper distancing, staff wellness checks, hourly sanitation, and more. For us to make an error like this is unacceptable. We have scheduled a meeting with staff to update their understanding of Open Table and their reservation system so this does not reoccur. Thank you for your constructive feedback.

Our first meal eating out at a restaurant for months due to COVID-19, and Betty was excellent! our table outside was well-distanced from the next. cocktails were knock-yours-socks-off amazing. our appetizer of charcuterie was rich and yummy incl great olives. the Chicken entrees were divine, best poultry dish I have had for many years, and dessert was delicious. we'll be back!

This is my second meal at Betty. The first was delicious with great service and a robust, hearty ambiance.

This covid experience-Same great service and steak frites (both nice and crispy) and side of plumo green beans. Plus, something I really enjoy- still great ambiance but it was very quiet with so few people inside.

Betty is our favorite restaurant on Queen Anne and it never fails to give us a great meal at a reasonable price. Their soups and salads are always high quality and rotate by season, which I appreciate. The chicken and lasagna are two of the best signature dishes a restaurant could have, and their burger and pasta dishes are always great too. Always oysters available, and always a nice seafood entrée. People laugh at us for going so often but it is just the perfect neighborhood hangout, for us.

Favorite restaurant period, I find it perfect. Maybe because it’s in my neighborhood? Ha. Elegant feel, but reasonably priced. They do many dishes well enough you will make a special trip to back for like the chicken, the steak, the burger, salads and someone jilloves the gnocchi or other pasta

We had an early reservation and ended up having to adjust it twice. When we called to say we were running late, we were again told “no worries”.
We missed the restaurant entrance at first...it looks like an old diner, two aluminum glass swinging doors. A small hallway leads to the left, where a heavy velvet stage curtain hangs. Up the ramp into Betty world.
A warm classic welcoming bar and restaurant. Inviting, busy and comfortable.
Good craft cocktails, wine and beer lists. I had hot tea and the cup was preheated.
The cheese plate was fantastic. Crisp apple slices, homemade crackers, mouthwatering cheeses served with apricot preserves.
We had the beet and Waldorf salads. They were crisp fresh perfectly balanced...delicious.
Our son ( his 21st birthday) had the roasted chicken and loved it.
We both are vegetarian so we had the Gnocchi. It was served at a perfect temperature. Warm, rich, satisfying textures and complex flavors...very good.
The courses were perfectly timed, never rushed. The service from start to end was excellent, professional warm, real and refreshing.
We had to dash for a show, but will return to enjoy another superb dining experience and try the deserts.
Betty reminded us of a local neighborhood European cafe where friends and families gather to connect and to celebrate with excellence fare in a refreshing atmosphere.

Food was very good. In cold weather ask for a table away from the the draft created by the door opening. Service was good without being intrusive and the server was knowledgeable about the ingredients and food prep. My companions expectations were not high but were vastly exceeded to the point of "...yes, I'd come back and would tell my friends about it."

Betty gives you very good food at reasonable prices. The chef’s counter is great entertainment from a funny and knowledgeable crew. I had the cassoulet and she had the Betty burger. Both very good. The only unfortunate aspect was we were too full for dessert. They get my five star rating because they do good food really really well. And they’re really really nice. That’s a great combo to find.
