Pomerol is a locally owned Fremont neighborhood restaurant serving the best northwest ingredients in a French preparation with a wood fired grill and sunny patio.

The restaurant is named Pomerol, not for the famous wines, but for the unique, private, family owned properties that are still operated as they were 100 years ago. The town is tiny, the restaurants are excellent and the craftsmanship of the local people is amazing. We hope to bring that same feel with food, wine, and craft cocktails. A place that you can walk in and have some of the best meats cooked over a grill or fresh produce prepared in a simple beautiful presentation.

Pomerol is one of our favorite restaurants in Seattle. The rack of lamb, steak frites, and steelhead were all exceptional. Thanks for another wonderful evening.

Food was really tasty, but very expensive. Without alcohol we ended up paying over $250 on Valentines day.

Not a good experience. First round of bread was stale, second was cold inside and hot outside, so clearly frozen. Squash soup very thin and bland. Steak frites - steak somehow tasted acrid and was over cooked, fries lukewarm and soggy with oil. Brussel sprouts inedible - wilted and tasteless. Octopus chewy and acrid like the steak. Wine tasted like the bottle had been open for days. Entrees served right after the soup because they were fired at the wrong time. Overall, a poor experience all the way around - not recommended.

Pomerol has a pesant relaxed atmosphere. Our wait person was outstanding. The menu was diverse and interesting. The food was uneven. The cassoulet was more like bean soup, the chicken was ok but not served hot. The salads were excellent. I would not rush back here.

For the price the New Year’s Eve set menu was underwhelming. The beef was perfectly cooked and tasted good but the lamb was bland. Would like to have tried the normal menu. Service was good.

Try the octopus! Wonderful French bistro with a little more room between tables. We very much enjoyed the grilled octopus starter with a lemon cream. The endive salad was also excellent. I enjoyed the cassoulet which was full of sausage, duck confit and chunks of pork belly. My companions enjoyed the steak, properly cooked very rare. Dessert was molten chocolate cake which disappeared quickly.
My only complaint is the service. The server was very young and inexperienced and not right for a restaurant of that caliber. She was friendly, but really fell down on all of the things you would expect-checking back on food, removing plates and mostly explaining the cuisine instead of dropping it on the table and running off.

Absolutely terrible. The host or owner and also acting bartender was extremely rude. Careless, arrogant and so rude. I'm still shocked at this terrible experience. He even asked us to leave because he said we had stayed 2hrs and they had only budgeted for 1.5. This was after the fact that soooo many things went wrong with our waiter, food and drinks throughout the night. It was first and only time. Never ever going back and wasting time and money to be mistreated.

We stopped here before a show at West of Lenin and were pleasantly surprised that such an unassuming local restaurant could be so wonderful. We appreciated our knowledgeable server and delicious food and it was such a pleasure to be in a restaurant that wasn't overly crowded or noisy.

Dined with friends during restaurant week promotion; very satisfied with the value and quality of the food. The pork tenderloin roasted over a wood burning grill was tender and some of the best I have ever eaten. The cassoulet flavor was superb, but my quibble was that my dish seemed to be short on the duck. Salads and desserts were very well prepared

Our waiter was perfect but the food wasn’t. It wasn’t horrible, the desserts were delicious, but the rest wasn’t. My sauce was too salty, the taste of the butternut squash soup I can’t define but it wasn’t bsquash. Pork wasn’t tasty just ok. The Brussels sprouts along with the carrots I cook better at home. Cocktails were good and once again the people were very nice but so disappointing. Need to amp up the flavor.

I love this restaurant. Went there with 3 friends to celebrate friendship and a birthday and it was terrific. I think it would help for our server to have been better prepared for questions about food preparation. He is new to the restaurant, I believe, and was charming and eager to please. This definitely balanced the experience. Overall, this is a wonderful place and I'd both recommend it and return to it.
I also appreciated the thoughtful wine list.

We love this place! A small, unassuming space, the menu is always changing to maximize use of local ingredients. Tonight, (part of Seattle Restaurant Week) we had a number of options including the fish of the day added for just tonight. I opted for the pork, which was grilled over a wood fire, giving it a lovely smokiness. Many of the dishes are gluten-free so my companion had almost as many menu options as I had. Service is attentive and efficient.

Oysters were awesome. Arugula salad with hazelnuts, goat cheese, figs and grilled pears was okay - the pears could have used more caramelization and the greens a touch more vinaigrette. Pork chop and roasted vegetable risotto were so-so for the prices. Wines and drinks were fine. Comfortable decor but on the noisy side. Service alternated between being attentive and absent.

A big disappointment. The prices are about $4 more per item than on their website. My “grilled pear & fig” salad tasted like nothing but onion & salt. The tomatoes on the burrata were over-ripe and mushy. A $19 burger—I’ve had some $19 burgers in seattle that were worth the price & this ain’t one. We were 1 of 3 tables and the food took forever. Every cocktail was served in a martini glass—even the old fashioned—so weird. There’s SO many other places to spend your money and get an impeccable meal and service.
