We were at John's to celebrate our 50th Anniversary. We were so pleased with the experience--all exceeded our expectations!

That was the best Seafood Linguini EVER! The roasted Brussel Sprouts were delicious and the Salmon was done to perfection.

The wait staff was very friendly and helpful--and comped a glass of champagne and the dessert!

It was a lovely celebration!

We have never been here before and was looking for a new place to try. Everything about our experience was awesome. The added bonus was the weather was warm and the location allowed us enjoy the view.

We celebrated my girlfriends birthday here. The location is good, we love Mukilteo, but views are limited. The food was outstanding. We were treated with a free appetizer AND free desert for the birthday. The menu is pricey but worth the money. Service was great. I would only say the inside decor is a little bland but that aside I would highly recommend John’s Grill for dining in the future.

We had a lovely time. Christine was delightful and your restaurant was more than generous to us when our meal included mushrooms when we asked to have them deleted. We will always come back. You and
The Bistro in Arlington are our favorites

The filet mignon was excellent and cooked perfectly everything else was equally good. We’ve only been there twice but it is becoming one of our favorite places for a high quality meal.

Wonderful neighborhood restaurant. Christine was an attentive, enthusiastic waitperson and the food was perfectly cooked. We tried the Brussels Sprouts, which were refreshingly NOT smothered with Balsamic and the Caesar Salad (not overly lemony). Hubby had the NY Strip with mushroom sauce (perfectly cooked) and I had Pork Tenderloin (so tender I could almost cut it with my fork). Dessert was the Mousse, which we shared. We will definitely be back. Highly recommend!

My daughter and I had dinner here on Friday Aug 28th. The staff was working extra hard to keep everything clean and everyone comfortable and safe. They were warm and welcoming! The restaurant was busy so don't expect a fast food experience. We made reservations and were seated promptly with no wait. This is a place to relax and unwind. Take your time and enjoy a nice meal at an easy pace. I had a red blend that was excellent and we started with the Peach Burrata salad. Which had a wonderfully light vinaigrette dressing. I had the beef stroganoff for dinner and my daughter had the chicken fettuccine. Both entrées were delicious and nice portions. We finished with a brownie ice cream desert. We had a lovely time.

John's grill was amazing! Everything looked amazing so we ordered A LOT of food and nothing disappointed. My cocktail was mixed perfectly and our server was delightful. My entree was the seafood linguini and it was AMAZING. That dish alone is a reason to come back again soon.

My husband and I went here for our anniversary! Our food and service was spectacular! We had the famous crab cake and I have to say that was the best crab cake I have ever had! The service was wonderful. It was clean and everyone was wearing masks. I felt comfortable dining there! We will definitely be back. Loved !

Best place in the North end if Seattle. Nice resurant and just the right size for an intimate dinner. Food was great and service outstanding. Perfect place for a quiet meal out. Had the crabcake appetizer to start with and was light and fluffy like a soufle. We both had house salad and filet mignon for the main course. Outstanding dinner all and all. Highly recomended for sure and we'll be back!

Loved John's Grill. Apparently this restaurant has been around since 1908, so that's over 100 years. They have a lot of reminders to demonstrate that the restaurant has been around a long time. There are photographs all over the wall of historic people and places. They have the hard wood floor and the tiled bathrooms. And the food is classic seafood and steaks. They have a Jack LaLane salad for two which was excellent. It's like a chef salad with everything in it. It was delicious. But in a few years, who will remember Jack LaLane from the 1960's and his exercise show. The oysters were good, standard. My steak was delicious, the John's Cut which is a bone in New York. Maybe the steak could have been thicker, but it was very flavorful and delicious. It comes with a baked potatoes and some vegetables. Classic. The Petrale Sole wasn't spectacular, but it was good. The side of creamed spinach was nice. And the pecan pie and ice cream were just the sort of dessert that everyone loves. It's not very inventive cuisine, but it's great. I would definitely go back for more.
