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.

Betty Ratings and Reviews
The rib eye and fish entres were terrific. The bib salad had big bib pieces with not much else--
for $13 overpriced and boring. The berry sorbet for dessert was tasty but the layered flourless choc cake was really disappointing-- bland and tasteless.Oh how I love a good, rich flourless choc cake-- really disappointment with this one. Great ambience.
Fantastic burger and fries! The burger itself had great flavor and was topped w/ deliciously crunchy pickles, garden fresh tomatoes, very thinly sliced red onion w/ a great sauce on the side! Fries were slender and perfectly crispy! Highly recommend the Betty Draper cocktail too! Great service!
I have been to Betty’s many times and enjoy your burgers and chicken! The only complaint we all had was the terrible service we had. It was a monday night and not alot of people in the restaurant. We had to flag our waitress to remove our plates and she complained of migraines. Sorry for her but she should have stayed home!!!
I’m a fan of Betty’s for many years whether it’s for happy hour, a friends gathering, a special event, or I’m alone and I eat at the bar with the fabulous bartender Angie! The food is creative, the staff are professional and I could take my dear elder friends who both use walkers and it’s accessible!
We like Betty for easy, tasty dining close to home. The menu is limited, but we have found that it always has something that appeals. The wine list is short, but well-chosen so you can enjoy a bottle of wine for a reasonable price. We are happy to see it so busy -- even later on a Thursday evening, which was when we dined. Betty is a nice amenity and important to have such a dining establishment to serve Queen Anne neighbors and our friends who have come from away.
Another great meal at Betty. First up, one of Betty's signature cocktails with names as inventive as the drinks themselves. Tequila, watermelon ice, rhubarb bitters and thyme simple syrup? Sign me up! Food started with a lovely chilled melon soup topped with chili oil which cut the sweetness of the fruit perfectly. As an entree, an oil poached wild salmon cooked to perfection. We were too full for dessert but there were some very tempting options.
Reservations highly recommended. You can request seating in the Lounge (over 21) or Chef's Counter or opt for the dining room.
Enjoyed our meal very much. While the restaurant is very family-friendly, it was great for a date too. Our favorite dish of the night was the roasted chicken, but the lamb chops, spinach salad and apricot roulade were very good as well. Some friends live nearby and it's their favorite neighborhood restaurant. I understand why--it would be mine too.
We are tired of always going to the same few places near Seattle Center before a play or, in this case, a SIFF film. Venturing slightly up the hill to Betty did mean that we had to find two parking places, but we absolutely enjoyed our meal. The pork tenderloin was savory and tender, cooked perfectly, with a tasty side of Israeli couscous and tomatoes. The mushroom pasta could have used a bit of salt and pepper, but was fine and very ample. Desserts of rhubarb pie and chocolate cake were delicious. All around us, big groups were happily celebrating graduations or birthdays or anniversaries. It was a happy alternative to the same old places and I think we will be back.
Wonderful staff - perfect combination of engaging and hands off.
We are the steak frites - excellent. Steak melts in your mouth. We also had the pear and burrata which was a great way to start the meal and ended with delicious lemon ricotta doughnuts.
Wonderful meal - if only I lived nearby!
We always enjoy sitting at the Chef's Bar so we can watch the action and chat with the chefs. We lucked out with a parking spot in front. That location has a serious parking shortage. The menu provides a nice range of items and prices. We chose the cheese plate to start. My wife had the rib steak and I had the halibut special. Her steak was excellent. My habit was beautifully presented, but a bit over cooked. It still glistened, but was slightly dry. Overall a fun way to celebrate our anniversary.
With so many great options nearby, we were delighted that a pre-opera, wedding anniversary pick of Betty (because one of us was craving steak) delivered big time. Perfectly-cooked, melt-in-your-mouth ribeye, a shaved asparagus salad to die for, and excellent wine. Next time we'll pass on the Italian donuts in favor of the consistenly-delicious pie.
Kudos to the staff for excellent food, service, and enough calm to carry on a conversation. A wonderful neighborhood asset.
