Contemporary American
Nestled in upper Queen Anne, just a few blocks away from the iconic views of Kerry Park, sits Betty Restaurant. We are proud to have continued to be a Seattle neighborhood staple for over 12 years. Our menu is best defined as seasonally- driven, thoughtfully prepared comfort food. Betty is a gem and in some ways a throwback - to a time when the food and the guest were the most important part of the dining experience.
We look forward to seeing you soon!

The kale Caesar with fried chickpeas was a nice twist. My husband and I shared the 1-lb steak & frites which, with the salad, was enough dinner that we were sadly too full to try any or there delicious sounding desserts. Steak was cooked perfectly and frites were hot, crispy and abundant! My only complaint was that the frites were served with ketchup. We asked for aoli and the kitchen's take on that was more of a chipotle mayo.

Betty is simple food cooked very well and sublime cocktails that you can't resist. If you want some tasty chicken, an exceptional steak frites, mouth-watering lasagna, and delicious seasonal dishes that rotate, Betty is the place to go.

Also, I think their happy hour (4:30 to 5:30 everyday) is one of the best in town.

Great ambiance and consistently good food. It feels like an employee owned business, in that the staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and give the impression they want you to return. My 2 go-to dishes are the roast chicken and lasagna, but every dish is great. I also love the small plates.

Betty has been around for a while but this was my first time. They have arranged the seating to accommodate COVID restrictions nicely. The wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The food was excellent. One appetizer between us and an entre each was more than enough for two. I definitely will return.

Such glowing reputation and reviews! I was excited, but food did not live up to expectations (service, however, was lovely; especially appreciated hostess thoughtful placing us in the corner of the restaurant - quieter just as I had asked in reservation, and she proactively turned down the speaker over our heads. She was very personable and clearly cared about making one's experience at Betty a good one.). Friend's pear salad was delicious; wild mushroom pasta dish quite large and, well, just 0k. Uninspired might be a good descriptor. Fried green tomatoes, which I assumed would be a veggie-centric starter was HUGE (quite sharable), but tomatoes were practically non-existent inside the heavily battered coating for each slice (agreeably crunchy but the shear amount of coating for each tomato slice was over the top and ruined the dish. Clams in chorizo broth was a good idea but poorly executed: oversalted, and the slices of chorizo in it would have been fine, but offered no contrast to the overly-salted and spicy broth.
So I will give it another try in the coming months, but this was indeed a disappointment.

The menu is down the middle, maybe not super inspired. But the execution of that menu is fantastic, the service is excellent, and the cocktails are yummy. Great everyday place that’s affordable and prepared with care.

What a great experience! I’ve know about Betty for years and have experienced happy hour a couple of times but this was the first time sitting down for dinner. All I can say is you can really tell they love what they do. The staff was friendly and professional. Food was timed perfectly between courses and each dish was amazing and as others have commented, the drinks were top notch. As we were leaving, the kitchen staff thanked us for coming in. Will now keep Betty on the top of list next time we are looking for a great meal.
