What stands out most here is actually the SERVICE! Every time we come here, the wait staff is so friendly and accomodating. The perfect mix of being nice but without interupting your meal all the time. The FOOD is also amazing, always so delicious. The sauce I got with my filet was amazing, and their Beecher's mac n cheese is so so so so good!! A must have!!

Our waiter was really nice and attentive. The food was delicious. The Mother's Day gift of a John Howie cookbook was really thoughtful. Thank you!

The service and meal were excellent! The hostess claimed to not have our reservation until I showed it to her on the open table app. Hence 4 stars for that hiccup in the beginning.

A truly elegant steakhouse experience. Service was top notch, attentive and friendly but not pushy. All the staff said hello and goodbye. Even the bus boy was awesome. Food was good, but should be expected. The filet was excellent. Would definitely go again just to be made to feel so special.

John Howie remains the best steakhouse choice in Bellevue! We were so happy to see many of the same professional service staff that we knew prior to COVID. It sounds like John Howie took great care of his team during the COVID lockdowns, and that certainly paid off as he retained so many talented people that make my wife and I want to always keep coming back. Food, wine selections, and service were stellar as always!

The food was decent but nowhere near the quality that it should be for this price. Service was just ok. Nothing was bad. But nothing was exceptional. Not impressed.

The steak and the side dishes, while delicisous, got cold halfway through the meal. The server had too many customers to attend to to notice when I needed another glass of wine. No one asked how things were.

I appreciate the feedback. Did you have an opportunity to speak with the manager that evening? We strive to create an exceptional experience and want to correct any issue in the moment. Would you please provide reservation name and date so I may follow up with the appropriate staff? Best, Tim Lodahl GM
