Volume of food on the plate, in this era has decreased a bit....but essential in these days of economic challenge! Show up, Enjoy! It's Worth it! ... A Seattle landmark for its Great View, Personal Service and Quality of Food.
The service was nice and quick, the food was a bit blend but the server she was awesome and very helpful.
Excellent as always.
Love the way the fish was grilled over applewood, our server Nick Was great, The only downside was having to wait over 20 minutes for a reservation we made over two months ago
Fabulous dinner spot to celebrate UW’s family weekend with our son. Excellent food, view of water and service. We will be back!
Happy to be back, it's been a while. Very good server and hostess. Honored our request for a window table. Food good as usual.
I felt as though the food was not exactly worth the price. Our waitress however, was superb!
Yes good, but average overall. Enjoyed the food and the great view of Seattle,
Our waitress was really great . Dinner was very good but a little over priced for what it is … fish & chips
Nice location on the water
Server was so rude. He clanked dishes in front of our faces, had an edge to everything he said. I’ve never written a bad review like this. I was so disappointed. Food was good but way over priced $39 plates for $10 meal. Rude to my elderly mother too, Just awful.
Great! Great great great
We love the Ivar’s Salmon House. We had a long friendship, moved to Atlanta, but has some relatives. We keep tipping after the Pandemic. Onward.
Northwest theme on the inside & great views of the water. Service was first rate & food was good.
Order anything salmon and get the clam chowder
Everyone was fantastic. Friendly helpful competent. Smiles all over the restaurant you have a great
Excellent experience at Ivars. Good service great food. Nice environment inside the restaurant.
Great food in great location….advised by the locals…it’s where they go!
We had Marcus as our waiter on a table of 8. He was outstanding!!
Ask for Marcus in the bar section. He is fantastic! Took care of us well, super funny, and he’s tried everything on the menu, so won’t steer you wrong.
Food was mediocre for the price.
Service was sufficient, but not outstanding.
Free desert for birthday.
The food is not memorable... it's close to cafeteria in taste.
Food and service was amazing coconut shrimp was the best shrimp I’ve ever had! Must try!! Salmon was amazing
Our server, Marcus, was excellent. We had a table on the patio overlooking the water; what a great view! The food was delicious and the cocktails were perfectly mixed. It was the perfect end to a wonderful day.
We are celebrating the family reunion here. Food and service is great. Had a good time
Always consistent food. The coconut shrimp is our favorite. Service could have been better.
This restaurant was amazing. The food was outstanding, our waiter, Jesus, was fantastic, cordial and friendly. The service was fast but with the great view of the city and the bay, I would not come here in a hurry. Enjoy the meal and the time. Great place for family gathering or for some food and a stroll on the waterfront walkway. We are from out of town but will definitely make this place a must when back in town.
King crab dinner was incredible
8 legs,sweet and tender. Great salad. Wedge with blue cheese and small bits of apple.. very tasty. My wife had crab cakes. They were over the top.
We had a great night. The food was great and the service was just as good.
Always great food, the Northwest Sampler was very good.
This place was amazing. We had a seat right by the water. The food was even better than the view. Great experience. Must go!
Our server Brad was excellent. Thank you for your kindness and service
Service was very poor and the food was equivalent to a TV dinner for the price of a nice dinner at another Seattle restaurant which has some pride in their food. Mashed potatoes were bland, crab cakes may have been frozen, green beans were limp… portions were small and prices were high.
Our waiter was nice, but very forgetful and clearly did not know what he was doing. It took over 20 minutes for him to come back to take our food order after the initial greeting. Definitely had too many tables for his level of experience.
They do have a spectacular view, but my boyfriend and I spent the night flabbergasted at the experience we received for the price we paid. We won’t be going back- Seattle is full of phenomenal dinner services and this was not one.
We enjoyed celebrating our 41st Wedding Anniversary at Ivar's Salmon House. The restaurant is unique and beautiful with gorgeous views of Lake Union and downtown Seattle. And, the menu selections fit and reflect on the interior decorations and local ingredients.
Very good for best time
My daughter fish fried is over cooked. In general it’s a great lunch
Flies everywhere throughout the meal. Terrible smell of food waste from the parking lot. Sautéed clam wasn’t properly prepped so there was too much sand and mud. Won’t come back for a very long time unless there’s significant change in operations.
We came in for dinner for my husbands birthday. We were excited about the view and menu originally. We were sat then it took the waitress nearly twenty minutes to greet us. I discussed our food allergies when she made it to the table and she said it would be easy to accommodate. I explained I had a dairy allergy and then ordered my food. Our waitress came back four times and explained I apparently was unable to get anything that came with the dish due to a dairy allergy. While this was going on our drink orders were also messed up, and our waitress additionally didn’t know anything about the liquors or drinks available so had to continuously be asked a question, go back to the bar, then return to answer the question which lead us to being at the restaurant for a long amount of time putting off our other plans for the evening. My partner received his food and it looked ok but not great. I got my plate, and it was the saddest chicken I’d ever seen. The menu said it came with roasted pear and prosciutto but it was seriously two slices of pear with the core still in it and the prosciutto as well as the chicken was dried up like it sat under the heating lamp for half a hour. The chicken was supposed to be sage as well but then literally had no flavor and was insanely dry. Had to send back my entree then couldn’t find anything else on the menu I could eat so I wound up being unable to even get an entree for myself. Instead I just had bread from our appetizer and a the gin drink I didn’t order. Overall great view but terrible experience especially since it was for my husbands birthday dinner. 🤦♀️
Usual nice ambiance, great view, pretty good service, average but pricy food.
The view of the waterfront was awesome. Service was great and entertaining. Clam chowder was good as usual.
