Much like her sibling down the hill, Betty serves a rotating menu of bistro-style food using seasonal ingredients. We are centrally located amongst the trendy businesses along Queen Anne Avenue's bustling business district - step inside to our inviting yet eclectic and sophisticated atmosphere, featuring art by Bay Area artist, Judah Thomas. The restaurant offers seating in either our dining room or at the chef's counter where you can watch our talented chefs at work. Betty also has a full bar and lounge and a superb wine list with values from around the globe. Reservations are recommended.

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.

Our first time in Betty and loved the atmosphere straight away.
Staff were excellent even though it was busy. Our steaks were the best we have tasted in a long time, cooked to a mouth watering perfection.Will defiantly be returning soon.

Good and service was good, but asked us to pack it up and leave when two out of four still had half a drink to finish. Tab was $330 for four of us, ought to let them finish their drinks. Only one party waiting to sit, so not overly crowded.

Betty is a great find in Queen Anne. Large friendly bar area. Not an extensive menu but what is on it is well executed. The Betty Draper on the drink menu is a definite winner. I’d definitely go back!

All is very good for a casual, and just shy of a special night out. More like a neighbor hood eatery. Menu is on the short side, wine was fab, and prices are moderate.

While still in mourning the closing of Crow, Betty gives solace to my heart and tummy. Note they ported up the hill, Crow's out-of-this-world Lasagna, a similar roasted chicken and many of the same great staff. Thanks to Betty, I don't need to miss Crow anymore!

Queen Anne is full of wonderful restaurants, but Betty is one of my favorites. The food is wonderful--elegantly plated, perfectly prepared. The wine list is very good. The ambience is energetic, but the space allows for small groups or couples to have good conversations.
