 (Seattle)·Dined on November 7, 2012

Our party of five all raved about the food, service and ambiance of this wonderful gem of a restaurant. Two of us had the Macaroni and Cheese with bacon and it was mouth watering. Lots of bacon and a very nice cream sauce. Two others had the Boar Ragu Pasta and also thought it was very good. One of the party had the Cobb Salad and like the rest of us, enjoyed her meal. The service was very good also. Kept our water glasses full and did not rush us six girls as we sat and visited after lunch. We would highly recommend this restaurant.

I dined there recently with my nine year old son and my seventy year old father as it was his birthday celebration and we had a nice experience. My father and I had two really great glasses of wine and a few appetizers,the mussels,short ribs and the Macrina breads which were extra chilled as if thawed from the freezer and should have been warmed. I visit Macrina often in SODO and know that their bread is really good! We had the chicken which had very flavorful cous cous and the boar ragu. The atmosphere was really nice with turn of the century architecture charm but clean and tailored and very quiet which is important for my father who is hard of hearing. The service was attentive but not super friendly which can be good or bad.

We went here for my birthday and it was perfect. Even on a raining night, having a table by the window looking out over the yard was a welcome change from any other restaurant. The food was fantastic, seasonal and local -- it always great to find a menu that has a few surprises on the menu as well. We loved every bite and the service was fantastic. On a Tuesday, it wasn't very busy, but the tables are set further apart than usual so you really have a good space to yourselves and the interior of the house is beautiful. It's definitely worth the trip to Bothell for this, and I cant wait to go back!

We have been to Preservation Kitchen before, but this time we brought a guest that hadn't been there before. The food was fantastic and of course the Washington wine list great! There was a large party in the first room, which was very noisy, so it wasn't as quiet as we had hoped. We'll be back!

We used the recent Seattle Restaurant Week to try three restaurants that were new to us. This was the clear winner. With reservations for dinner, you will be seated in the quieter area of the restaurant - we lucked into a window seat, which was nice because it was out of the flow of traffic. Start with a Sazerac - an old cocktail that still tastes wonderful. The pork tenderloin was pink and flavorful - one of the best pork dishes I've had recently. Good salads. Good desserts. It's out of the way. it has parking that's convenient. It's well worth a try.

The appetizers (crab cakes & duck rilette) were very good and the entrees were also good (Seafood pasta & Sous vide chicken). The one stumbling block was dessert. My chocolate torte was extremely dense and not sweet at all. The ice cream helped. My boyfriend's carrot cake was very tasty, but the texture was more custard-like than cake usually is. Overall first impression was very good. Ther service was great and the building has warmth and charm. I would try it again.

This was Seattle Restaurant Week and the place was packed! Food was great, drinks and wine good, service probably a little stressed by the unusual crowds on a weeknight. We've been there before, found the food even better this time. Noise level allows conversation despite full rooms.

Preservation Kitchen was recommended to me by a coworker. I decided to take a chance and booked a 10/20/12 table for dinner to celebrate my husband's birthday. We loved it! They serve mussels as an appetizer (my husband's favorite and quite hard to find on many menus) and he ate every last one; said they were so very tasty and cooked just to the right consistency. Both our meals - filet mignon for him and salmon for me - were mouthwatering. Our wine selections were both smooth and velvety. And the desserts were rich - but not too rich - and heavenly as well. Our wait person was attentive, but not hovering. All in all a wonderful experience, in terms of both food and environment, and we will be back very soon. -Marilyn & Bill Andrews

I came here for Seattle restaurant week. I got the Polenta Tots which were quite tasty. The Wild Board Ragu was good too. The bread pudding was not as good as mine, but it was still worth the ending of the meal. Overall, I was pleased with my visit. I was expecting more from the ambiance as the path to get to the entrance is a bit strange and the inside was not what I was expecting, however, this should not stop you from coming in. I would surely come back to visit.

Food was amazing. Wild boar ragu and salmon were both excellent. Don't remember which salad we got nor the dessert but do remember both were very good. Prices seem fairly reasonable. Service was great. Can bring in a local bottle of wine without a corkage fee. Only thing I didn't like about the experience is it was very noisy...it was a busy night so all the tables were full and it was really hard to hear the folks talking right at our table. I would definently go back.

I have wondered about this restaurant for quite a while and finally tried it for brunch on a Saturday. It was surprisingly quiet (few other people), but the food was good. The prices are not bargain, but the food seems to be worth a little extra.

We really wanted to like this place. It has all the potential to be a great dining venue. Alas the kitchen falls short and service was barely adequate, with the exception of the hostess, she understands service! Food was dismal, "duck fat fingerling potatoes"??? Were either left over from yesterday, prepared that morning or ?? They were soggy and offered no hint of being cooked in Duck Fat. The Duck entree was tasteless save for the orange marinade it was prepped in. The seasonal veggies were overcooked and tasteless, the salads were under-dressed and weak. On a good note the bread plate was quite good as was the wine, and even though we did not enjoy the entree proteins they were cooked as we ordered, they just offered no taste.

It is difficult to evaluate PK now that they've combined forces with the Bothell Ale House. My reservations for Sunday brunch were made at the PK website, but we were seated in the Ale House portion which was much too noisy for conversation and a leisurely brunch. Fortunately, we were able to move to an outside table which made for a pleasant experience.

There are so many reasons to keep coming back to Preservation Kitchen. First off, the place itself is a charming, early 1900's house that is happily situated under the shelter of tall fir trees within a beautiful garden. The inside is rustic, cozy and hip - the perfect combination for a meal any time of the day or year. I've enjoyed brunch there on a winter morning (eating next to the cozy fireplace), and romantic dinners with candle light in our own little corner. The food and drink are superb, boasting locally grown and produced components across the menu. The staff are friendly, professional, and always accommodating - everyone clearly loves working there as much as I love eating there. My favorite place to eat.

We were there for lunch and everything we ordered were excellent. They use the freshest ingredients. The burgers were not just large, but delicious. Although we didn't drink, we noticed they offer a dozen microbrewery beers on tap...we'll definitely be back to try that. Also, the clam chowder's world-class.

The greens and bacon salads were fresh and bursting with flavor- we licked out plates clean. The wild boar ragout was outstanding, and so filling, we did not have room for dessert- would have loved to try their bread pudding. Note: when you first enter, there is a very casual bar/dining area to the left- this is NOT Preservation Kitchen- keep walking around the corner to a different part of the building.

I have been coming here for the last few years after I found it in my Passport restaurant guide. While no longer part of Passport we keep going back for Brunch and Dinner. The slow cooked pork appetizer on a small bed of potatoes is delicious. Never had a bad meal here. During the summer they have outdoor seating. There is also a full bar now in the back which is nice. Worth the trip from Kirkland (you can take 405 or just go up Juanita Drive). This is one of my best finds in the area which does not require going into Seattle.

Excellent food! Glass of Rose was served WAY too cold and we almost sent it back because it had no taste. But after letting it warm up it got much better. Noise of the room with only 2 other tables was almost too much to handle. A couple of people (from separate parties) were talking very loudly. One of the party's had an infant and a toddler (at 9pm!) but it wasn't the children that were loud but the parents! Perhaps the restaurant could install some sort of noise damping panels in the main dining room as the noise would be almost deafening with a full house! It's a shame too, because it's such a nice room, just a lot of hard surfaces. Would definitely return simply for the wild boar ragu--Excellent!!
