The food is always delicious and the staff are spot on with their service. The sourdough bread is heavenly and I could eat it all day.
However I feel the lunch menu prices are a bit steep. Quite steep actually. Maybe they can work on some less pricey items.

Appetizer is quite salty and not enough toasted bread to go with the salty crab dip.

Server was not very attentive and rush.

Asked for additional bread, but never came. Requested for a combo meal, but missing the combo. When asked about it, the server acted like the customer made the mistake.

Overall subpar food. For a chain restaurant that specializes in seafood, the only excellent offering is the view of Union Lake.

Loved our dinner here. Great options for those who don’t eat seafood to accompany those of us that do! Loved the crab dip.

Our server Brian was amazing! We asked for wine recommendations and he was great with lots of options and suggestions and took our personal preferences into it. The food was excellent and it was a beautiful night! Highly recommend!

Everything was fantastic! The lobster chowder may have been the best I've ever had.

May seem strange, but we ordered BBQ ribs at this excellent chain of fish resturants in the Seattle area. Carrots and red potatoes does not compliment BBQ ribs. Cole slaw was missing on the menu. So disappointed. Our server was excellent.

Gracious attentive service, and delicious fresh seafood, very generous portions. The atmosphere is fun, so Pacific Northwest and the view from inside or the deck of Lake Union is nearly panoramic. Its a bustling place at lunchtime.

Brought a girl from out of town who is very picky about crab cakes. Best she’s had at a restaurant!

I ordered the Macadamia nut encrusted halibut. Sounds delicious, doesn't it and for $40/plate, it should have been. However, it was so overcooked that i had to cut it with a knife and it tasted so bad my husband wouldn't even have a 2nd bite. The restaurant's solution was to offer me a free desert. Not exactly a fair trade! I certainly wouldn't order the halibut again and I'd have to think twice about even returning to the restaurant.

Outstanding! We dined here before a concert at Climate Pledge Arena. The food and service were simply outstanding. We loved the fact that we could sit at a comfortable table in the bar area and be able to watch the Husky game on one side and see out to the marina on the other. Warning: Be prepared to stretch your wallet. Dinner for two and a couple of drinks plus tip was $200 so it's not cheap to say the least. Well done, Dukes!

All was ok … a bit overpriced but that’s the price for the great views of lake union. My real concern was that we were never asked to show proof of our vaccination status so it’s likely others weren’t either.

Dukes on Lake Union is fantastic. Since the recent move, it’s the best restaurant location on the lake for views and they’ve laid the tables out in a way to give almost every seat a good view. Food was terrific, including the clam chowder, which is one of the very best, if not the best, in Seattle. All servers were really personable and attentive without hovering or being around “too much.” Dukes is a great and memorable seafood option in Seattle.

Very poor adherence to COVID safety. Even though signage is everywhere no one asked for proof of vaccine at the door. After we had been seated, walking by many diners unmasked, and asked about starters we asked the waitress about vaccine proof. She said they were making wait staff do it at the table instead of the greeters at the door. But she hadn’t. The party of 8 seated near us were not asked at the table. I mentioned on my reservation I was immune compromised. The place was very busy and loud, a real potential spreader.

Good, as usual. Experience felt well managed and with concern for COVID safety. Excellent attentive service. Prices have gone up slightly, but with a focus on quality ingredients -- Copper River Salmon a big feature on the current menu. Offers sizable portions. We had the 3 course menu, with an excellent chowder, very good spinach salad, and respectable fish and chips; a Copper River salmon and blueberry salad with blue cheese (excellent); and an "uncrab cake" (about the most crab content anyone offers in that cake) on a spinach salad. All very good.
