We always look forward to an evening here with friends. This visit, however, was a bit different than usual. Our waiter was less than attentive and the timing of our meal was way off. In between the appetizer and the main course we waited at least 45 minutes. When the main course arrived, the shrimp were tough, which is very unusual. We are hoping this was just an off night, and we won't experience these issues on our next visit. Hopefully, the wait staff will realize they are there to actually wait on the guests, not just take their order and rush away because they are too busy.

Wait staff was superb, the food, in our opinion was rather average. Casual atmosphere is fun and inviting. But the food was no better than a local chain restaurant that sells perhaps better food at cheaper prices. I’m a big fan of Montlake’s cousin, Neighborhood Services but the similarities end with the knowledgeable and courteous service. Overall Montlake is fine but there are better seafood choices.

As always!! the food was great, service good and friendly and we had a great time. I had the tuna tartar which was fresh & tasty. My husband had the soft shell crab & he said it was the "best he ever had"----and because he loves soft shell crab he eats it every chance he gets so has others to compare. All in all, it was a fun evening and we loved it. Definitely one of our favorite places to go!!

We are regular customers. Consistent quality. Competant professional service staff although on this occasion a never-seen-before waitress was excessively intrusive on our conversations. Halibut is a favorite as are the fish tacos, fish & Chips and grilled asparagus. Copper River Salmon was available at $45 and not a generous portion.

Pretty great, but quite pricey. wish they would dampen the room just a little more. Not impossibly loud by any stretch, but just a tad bit quieter and could actually be a bit romantic.
Super staff and food.

So very friendly and delicious. This place always treat us like their very best clients. We enjoy the tribute to Seattle and find the food to be authentic and amazingly fresh.

Tonight, oysters, fried shrimp, salmon belly, steak frites and Alaskan King Salmon.

Um, yes it was delicious. (My son said it was the best steak he’s ever eaten, I guess I have work to do.)

Enjoy

Wonderful neighborhood restaurant. Bartenders are great. Clam Chowder was delicious and different (not thick & heavy). Really recommend it. Tuna tartare was the best. Fish & chips was huge. Ahi Poke was very good. Key Lime tart parfait was interesting and very good. Great service. Could even come and sit at the bar & eat here. Will go back!

We had the oysters to start, then shared scallops, fish and chips and the white fish special; all were cooked to perfection and amazing. Veggie sides and deserts were great, along with an excellent wine list. The hostess, servers and bartenders were all extremely helpful and friendly; never rushed.

The meal was delicious- fish was fresh and flavorful and the rum cake was amazing! The setting is much more casual than expected, but it’s quite expensive for a casual place. Our meal (appetizers, entree, desserts, drinks) was under an hour.
