We celebrated a lovely ten year wedding anniversary at The Lark!
We’ve been to Lark a handful of times over the past 10 years or so (3 different locations) and have been blown away each time. Can’t wait for my next visit.
We celebrated our anniversary there. Food was great and service was fantastic. We will be back.
I had my birthday dinner with my family at Lark. Overall we enjoyed our experience & all of our dishes. Server was kind & knowledgeable on the dishes. I will note our dinner was 2 hours and 45 minutes, it felt like there was a lot of waiting involved. Good thing we ordered burrata & oysters as appetizers (which was really good). The Halibut in season was the best dish in our opinion. Desert & desert wine wasn't anything special and would not order those again. I would come back for a special occasion.
The service was attentive and excellent. The food was uninspired, except for the asparagus soup. Wine list was fair. However it was quiet.
Everything was amazing! Food was fresh and delicious. Beautifully presented. We didn't leave one bite behind, and we ordered A LOT of food!
The food was incredible! Every dish was delicious! I highly recommend it all!
Terrific ambiance. Unique building. Some entrees were excellent. One or two though ( out of 4) were only ok and even disappointing
Lark is a remarkable place. The food is superb, the service warm but in no way overbearing and the noise level allows polite conversation without shouting! Try it, you will have no regrets.
Wonderful experience, food is pricey but with it!
Great service. Wonderful meal.
I hosted a celebration dinner at Lark. The food, service, ambiance were fantastic. We were able to comfortably carry a conversation with the quiet to moderate noise level. Most were in dress attire. My husband wore nice jeans and a button down - we were fine. The booth was a little tight but not unmanageable. There is limited street parking and a small pay lot a few blocks away. I would definitely return. One of the best meals and experiences ever had.
Very enjoyable evening with wonderful creative cuisine - loved the mussels the cheese and the pasta!
We had high expectations for Lark which may be a reason we were disappointed.
We went for my fiancé’s birthday and I had requested a booth or nice table and we were put in a squished table where our chairs were bumping the tables behind us
We started off with the bread which I would not recommend it was a cold dense wheat bread which was hard to eat. Our starter courses were fine, but for dinner my fiancé got the crispy duck and I got the burger and neither of those impressed us. We also both agreed that the food was salty.
Because you’re so close to others, and it’s a big cavernous room noise level is high, at least where we were.
Overall would give three stars - it was a fun experience but not someplace that stands out to me as fantastic.
Great food! Spring Tasting menu had great options!
We got seated upstairs which does not have the same ambiance as the main level. No fish of the day offering. Waitress disappeared for long stretches. For a $40 corkage fee I expect something more than 3 wine glasses and a small first pour to taste. She didn't seem to know that the cork needs to be pulled slowly from a 15 year old cabernet. She jerked it out and it broke in half, obviously. Didn't offer to decant. We ended up doing our own refills.
We ordered the mussels for an appetizer which were excellent, but could use more bread for soaking up the amazing sauce.
My husband and I both had the halibut that was cooked perfectly.
We will be back!
Wonderful Vibe. The wait staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Overall, fantastic dining experience
I had a post Bday celebration and wanted to change atmosphere and try something new. Lark was supposed to be one of the best restaurants in Seattle. However, after dining over there, I must say this place is overrated. I was greeted by an unfriendly hostess, which didn't want to give a nice table even though we made a reservation in advance and arrived earlier. After negotiating with her manager, she gave in. The waitress forgot to bring bread and wasn't pleasant either. The food was great, we had octopus, pasta and duck, finished with a nice pineapple desert - really gourmet food and very well presented. However, the overall décor and ambiance are not exactly what we expected. The management should do a better job decorating this place from both inside and outside, put some light on, because it was getting darker and they still didn't have light on...- everything to make this place more lively and cheerful and of course, remind their personnel of smiles and being more friendly.
In the past, eating dinner at Lark has been our "event" for the evening. However, this time we met friends at Lark before attending a nearby theater performance. There were four of us. Two of us ordered the Octopus La Plancha with Bomba rice. This is a pleasantly smoky dish with a little bit of spice. The octopus was tender and juicy. I think it is on the menu a lot, perhaps all the time. The field green salad was a nice light compliment to the octopus dish. The small bowl of chowder was delicious and very rich. It was substantial enough that I did not have room for dessert after eating the chowder and the octopus. The mussels, ordered as a main, came in a large cast iron casserole with a side of grilled bread. It would have been nice to have a bit more grilled bread to mop up the delicious buttery broth. The fourth main was a special for the evening, scallops. At this point I cannot remember how they were prepared, but they looked delicious and our friend relished every bite.
The food is never short of exceptional here, even after years and years of patronage. What I miss about the previous iteration is the warm, friendly service. While the current service is professional, it always feels a bit distant and disconnected since moving to this restaurant space.
We got to lurk after a bit of confusing parking! Once that was accomplished all went well. Our server was informative and patient. The food is very unique and different in that they were not variations of typical dishes they were altogether new dishes... which is what we like! We stayed at our table for about 2 hours and had a great time. I would definitely recommend this place for a quiet dinner
I was quite impressed by the variety of the menu and the superb presentation of the food. The Pinot Noir was spectacular, and pleasantly generous; not skimpy like most area restaurants. The wait staff was courteous and prompt, but not intrusive. And the salad and main dish (duck) were truly superb.
We were seated in a booth, although there was just the two of us, such a nice start to the evening. We were celebrating my husband’s birthday and his dessert came with a candle. Low key and sweet. Our server was particularly good - nice, helpful, knew when to come over, offered good suggestions for what to order. It was easy to hear each other even though the restaurant was full, so it felt lively even without all the noise.
Good service. Lots of yummy menu choices. We had the steak tartare (superb), foie gras terrine (decent but not great), squid ink pasta with crab (amazing) and duck confit (delicious). Cocktails were not great but wine was nice and reasonably priced. Would definitely go back for a special occasion.
Our service was outstanding with wonderful suggestions for cocktails and wine oairings. Cannot remember server’s name. Female with red hair, cut in a bob, just longer than chin length. She was outstanding.
Halibut special was excellent. Waitstaff was amazing. Special place with great ambience.
My favorite Seattle restaurant! The food is divine and the service is impeccable.
Terrible parking situation. General outside area seedy
Easily one of the best restaurants in Seattle. Each bite was well seasoned and delicious.
The woman that answered the phone was rude curt and inviting. I like this restaurant but the staff taking calls need to take a lesson in customer service
The meal was great and our service was amazing.
Quaint atmosphere apps where very small and overpriced. The Halibut entrée was excellent. The service was not good Karissa was not engaging pompous and unfriendly. Definitely not a repeat for me
Overrated not creative food expensive small portions all entrees served lukewarm even though the place was not busy
We came to Lark to celebrate my husband's birthday with his brother and date. We were seated in a corner booth where we could have privacy for our celebration, and although we were tucked away, our server was attentive and knowledgeable. Each dish we ordered was delicious, and the pacing of the meal was perfect with no long waits or awkward pauses. Finally, my brother-in-law's girlfriend could not find a cocktail she liked on the menu, and our server suggested that the bartender could make her a drink suited to her personal tastes. After consulting with her, the bartender made not one, but two cocktails that she raved about and that she said paired nicely with the dishes we were served. It meant a lot to my husband that he got a memorable meal, but also that his guests were treated well too. Thank you, Lark, for a fine birthday dinner!
My wife’s squid no pasta was cold, her hamachi appetizer was over-seasoned with coriander. My daughters gnocchi and my Arctic char were delicious
You will want to go there for all your celebrations. The food was sublime.
