Preservation Kitchen offers the elegance, warmth, and comfort of celebrating any occasion with the ease of feeling at home with family and friends, but without you doing any of the work.

Preservation Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
Went for Valentine’s Day and had a great pre-fix menu. We both had the filet mignon and it was cooked perfectly. The crab cakes were awesome and both of our desserts were as beautiful as they were tasty. The restaurant is actually the residence of a previous mayor and I can see why they converted it into the quaint restaurant it is today. I had the Brown Sugar Bourbon after dinner, and it tasted just like Christmas in a glass! We will definitely be back here.
Expensive fixed price Valentines Dinner. Seated in the back of the ale house rather than main restaurant. Appetizer was stale. Salmon was luke warm. Salad with strawberries was fresh, but dressing was bland. Crepe dessert was the only good course. Wine pours were generous.
Won't return again.
What an amazing find! This restaurant is in an old converted house, so the dining room is really a series of rooms. This gives you a sense of privacy, while also having the ability to accommodate groups (and there’s a separate room for the bar area). There’s lot of little nooks and crannies for conversation, and the multiple fireplaces add an ambience of coziness and warmth to the place.
The menu is wonderful. Not large, but instead focused on quality ingredients made with care. The food was delivered to us with pride, and it showed.
The service was exceptional. Fast, polite, prompt, friendly, attentive.
I’d highly recommend this place. Whether it’s with a group for drinks, with the family, or or on a date, it seems to have something for everyone.
I had a very enjoyable time at the Preservation Kitchen! I went there for the first time, on a Sunday evening. It was my girlfriends birthday, and she loved it, and enjoyed the cheese tray! ( It was great). I had the boar for dinner and it was delicious, it was in a pasta dish, but truly great! The serves was great, always there to help make decisions for you, as well as making sure you are stocked up on drinks and food. Friendly staff! Will go back again.
We always really enjoy the grapefruit sparkler cocktail, and the brunch dishes are reliably good. The sausage gravy on the "Mount Baker" was heavy and a little floury, but the Classic Eggs Benedict and Herb-Ricotta omelette were very good. Excellent potatoes.
We made reservations at 6pm for our anniversary. We were seated right away. But we sat and did not get fed until 45mins later, not even bread, just water. And their was no offer by the management of a concession. However the food was really tasty. We had the broccoli appetizer, duck, steak and mash, green Caesar salad, house salad, tiramisu, and chocolate silk. Mixed drinks were the virgin pomegranate and the ginger lime. The food was really the only good thing about the experience. We will probably not go back.
The restaurant was pleasant. The staff were all friendly and attentive (hostess, backwaiter, server). Suggestions were made in a very helpful way, questions answered, and service was prompt. The food was on the better side of average, but did not WOW. Instead, it was a nice experience that did not spark a strong memory. The establishment was fun and cozy, though table spacing left fellow diners fairly close. This was a fun and relaxed restaurant that my friend and I enjoyed.
Looking forward to first time eating out on Thanksgiving. Expected from the price and reviews a white table cloth experience. found instead a casual, family style setting with average service, average food and a noisy setting that made talking to my wife difficult. For the cost > $200, we should have had one of the local grocery stores make us dinner. Would not do it again. Would recommend the place to go for seahawks games if you had a crowd and weren't worried about the cost
We went on Thanksgiving and enjoyed it. Being a holiday, the menu was limited. We opted for the traditional turkey 🦃 dinner, but the other were tempting as well. Service was excellent and the food was of very good quality. The ambience is romantic and cozy. We plan on returning to check out their lounge.
My turkey dinner was ok, the turkey was not cooked well. My friends had the filet and they really enjoyed it. We felt rushed, they didn't give us a lot of time between courses. Staff was friendly but seemed a little scattered with the bigger thanksgiving crowd.
I’ve been here many times for weekend breakfast and a few times for lunch. This experience was mediocre. The service was the main culprit. My date and I decided to split our meals. We ordered an entrée salad and fish and chips. The server never reminded us that a side salad was included with the fish and chips. Awkwardly, our entrée salad and our fish and chips arrived, followed by the side salad!
Even stranger are a few more things. The side salad arrived after our main course. The entrée salad was split to share, but the fish and chips came on a single plate. Not a big deal and we probably would’ve asked for it that way, but no side plates or questions asked.
Later, the server stopped by to check on us. I was clearly finished with my salad plate and we were picking at the fish and chips. Hands empty, she didn’t feel compelled to grab our plates, as if that’s not her job.
The fish and chips were ok. The spicy chips are a bit of a surprise because sometimes they’re really spicy and sometimes they’re not, at random. The salad was quite delicious.
Note that the restaurant is hard to find. It's not well signed but once you find it, it's a hidden gem. Warm and inviting, with very pleasing service. The food was a little disappointing though. My puttanesca was completely under seasoned. My boyfriend's chicken dish had a biscuit which was slightly burned on top.
The desserts however were amazing! Try the bread pudding... It's out of this world. Would I go again? Probably not anytime soon .
My wife and I went here the other day as part of restaurant week, and were very disappointed. The ambiance was nice, but it went downhill from there. I had the shrimp & grits, and the shrimp were inedible. They weren't cleaned (had sand all over them), and were dry. After trying one, it was apparent that my meal would be the grits. My wife had the wild boar ragu, which was not very hot, but otherwise unremarkable. Despite having a reservation at 6, we were seated at 6:15, and apparently the whole room was available, so not sure what the wait was for. Waitress was okay, but not present or particularly friendly. We definitely won't be returning.
