Amazing Happy Hour. I can't say enough about the burger in the bar.
The entire wait staff was great. Brett, Scott and Mario were very attentive and helpful during our dinner service.
We have been going to John Howie for as long as it has been open in Bellevue. It is pricey in all respects, but not bad enough to keep us from going. Good food, excellent service, good atmosphere-so why this review? I was disappointed to discover when I read my receipt the next day that the 20% that I considered to be a gratuity destined for my server was considered by John Howie to be a "Service Charge" that went to John Howie corporate. Why is John Howie making a service charge under any circumstance. If John Howie feels their price structure is 20% low, raise your prices accordingly and let the market decide if the value is there. If the 20% is the result of the edict to have a $15/hr minimum wage, say so. I don't support the $15/hr minimum wage rate concept and would not react negatively to your offsetting the impact of this ill conceived edict.
Enjoyed our 49th anniversary- excellent service by Shawn and others. The table side ceasar and table side chateaubriand WAS THE BEST! tHANKS FOR A GREAT TIME!
Ridiculously expensive.... but oh so ridiculously delicious! Amazing chef, amazing food quality, amazing service, amazing wine service/recommendations, great atmosphere and overall the best dinner we've ever had as a couple! The first 5 star dining experience that was TRULY a 5 star experience. Well worth the price!
Thank you for the fantastic review! We appreciate the support and it goes along way with our staff when their hard work is noticed. Have a wonderful weekend. We look forward to serving you again in the near future. Cheers, Tim L. GM
Stellar, as always!!
Fantastic night out - amazing food, drinks, and service.
Wonderful to hear! It always great to hear from our guests. Thank you for sharing your experience. Regards, Tim Lodahl GM
The food was perfect, the service fabulous. Not so great, the prices for alcohol are outrageous.
I'm glad to hear food and service meet your expectations. Would you provide some more detail on the alcohol portion? Was it wine, spirits, cocktails and were there any specific brands. Best, Tim L.
The food was kind of run of the mill in the middle. The steak was not very hot as expected and was kind of on the chewy side. For the price I would never go again. Other Steak restaurants have these guys beat. Service was ok but could've been better but due to the Covid-19 I will give them a good rating. The price was astronomical for the quality of food we received.
Thank you for the feedback. Did you have the opportunity to speak with a manager that evening? We will gladly replace any item that is not to our guests liking. Would you please provide some specifics on how we may better our service? I appreciate your time. Best, Tim Lodahl GM
Excellent service and the food was perfectly executed. Really amazing!
Thank you for the kind words! Please come see us again soon. Best, Tim Lodahl GM
As always food and service was outstanding
We appreciate the review. Our staff will be thrilled to hear their hard work was noticed. Looking forward to serving you again in the near future. Best, Tim Lodahl GM
Steaks were spectacular. Incredible wine list, with several vertical selections.
Crab cake dressing was too salty, though the cakes themselves were excellent.
We appreciate the opportunity to serve you. Thank you for sharing your review with the opentable community. I will follow up with the executive chef on the crab cake dressing. Have a wonderful week. Cheers, Tim Lodahl GM
This was an engagement dinner and I thought John Howie might take this more seriously or make us feel celebrated and they didn't. I was surprised and felt slightly let down. I thought maybe a glass of champagne or maybe a dessert? I am not one to try and get anything for free but I was a server for over 10 years and know that people like to feel special, especially with occasions like this. Honestly, I think I just had higher expectations. I will likely spend my money elsewhere if I am expecting the restaurant to come through on helping me celebrate.
Thank you for the feedback. I apologize your engagement dinner did not meet your expectations. I will share your review with the management team and we will look for new avenues to celebrate our guests special occasions. Best, Tim Lodahl GM
The Lobster Bisque was excellent as was the Spicy Habanero Butter Shrimp starter dish... 16oz ribeye was done as expected - to perfection...
Thank you for the private note. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your food items. Best, Tim Lodahl GM
