My friend and I shared the cheese curds with the honey jalapeno dipping, that was good. We also ordered the short ribs. That was sooo good and tender!! Our other friend ordered the chicken sandwich I think. She liked that as well. We also ordered the silk chocolate cake and that was good and rich. Overall would go again for a special occasion.

The service was good, but the foo, though the ingredients were fresh and good, was uninspired. The lamb shank was tender but bland, the avocado shrimp cocktail was just that but it was filled with celery I am sure to offset cost. Over rated restaurant.

This was my first visit to Preservation Kitchen. I intend for it not to be my last visit. The outdoor seating looked inviting so I can see visiting when the weather is nice enough to eat outside.

The grounds and building are lovely. They had the fireplaces burning which was really nice on a chilly Sunday evening. We were greeted warmly when we arrived and everyone was very attentive.

For the Dine Around promotion you had three different options from $22, $33 or $44. We went with the middle option.

My friend ordered the chile roasted cauliflower while I had the shrimp and avocado cocktail. Both were a nice starter before our delicious duck leg cassoulet. The duck leg was perfectly cooked with cous cous, garbanzo beans, sun dried tomato, olives and preserved lemon. That dish alone is worth the visit. We both ended our meal with the Tiramisu.

If you are looking for a cozy place with great service and good food, head to Preservation Kitchen.

I was completely disappointed in my brunch options as well as my choice of foods ... biscuits & gravy with a side of potatoes. Food came after about a 20+ minute wait ... I got a side, my other friend created her own continental and the third companion had the standard 2 eggs dish. My food was cold and lacked flavor. I was able to consume half of one half of a gravy covered biscuit and a few more bites of my potatoes before giving up ... I spent $30 (including tip) on this meal and the only thing I appreciated was the two coffee and Bailey's I ordered. Wondering now if it's worth a revisit for dinner to see if they can redeem themselves??!!

Saturday noon, got in right away, only 3 tables in use. We were seated right next to 2 very loud patrons which detracted from the atmosphere. After they left we had a room all too ourselves which was good for conversation, but a little too quiet. We had the coffee cake as our brunch starter and it was delicious - higly recommend that! Greek omelet & wild boar ragu were very good too. Our server was great!

Preservation Kitchen has been our go to restaurant for almost every dinner out for the last 2 years. The last two times the food has been average, at best. The service is always outstanding.

We had dinner here on Saturday. My ragu pasta was barely warm and the pasta was gummy. My husband's steak was perfectly cooked, yet served room temperature. The chips that are usually hot and crunchy and to die for were also cold. The portion size has also seems to have gone down recently as well.

Food was outstanding from appetizers through dessert. The braised short ribs are highly recommended. Service was friendly and efficient , especially considering our server was bartending and we were seated in the dining room (you rock Aluna!). Eclectic and warm setting that's suitable for a romantic date, or casual dinner. We will definitely be back soon!

Service was a little slow, although our server did an excellent job. She just seemed to have too much to do. There were three of us and most of us thought that the food was excellent.

The room got a little noisy just before we left when a group of women who were obviously excited to see each other showed up, but I'm sure that calmed down.

I would not hesitate to return or to recommend this restaurant to a friend.

We were there for New Year's Eve and were very disappointed. They were out of several items on an already limited menu by 8pm. Our past experiences have been great but this was awful. The lobster was tough, the soup was luke warm, and two of us had to split a steak because they ran out when it came time to serve us (they had taken orders for 2). The dessert was the best part and was good but left the caramel off 2 of 3 desserts.

This was our first time at Preservation Kitchen -- a 4 course New Year's Eve menu. Other than the delicious 1st course bisque -- crab for me, carrot for my wife -- the food was very average. The salads were mediocre, my lobster tail was as tough as shoe leather (and it was supposed to come with risotto but I think the pasty glob was mashed potatoes), my wife's cauliflower steak really just a grilled head (not a "steak"), and everything was served at room temperature (basques included). Service was slow. On the other hand, the desserts were good, the draft beer menu and wine lists extensive and mostly local. They were out of the wine we chose but the server's suggestion was excellent. All in all, with a final bill of $200 before tip it seems like they were trying to punch above their weight -- and they weren't successful. We'd like to go back on a "regular" night and see if it's any better.

My wife and I love this place for its understated, but excellent food, ambience, and service. I don't know if it's because or in spite of their location in Bothell, but they don't take themselves too seriously unlike a lot of places in Seattle. Most of our favorite spots are still in Seattle so Preservation Kitchen in Bothell is a hidden gem for us.

With Preservation Kitchen, you get the feeling of real local experience. The restaurant is in an early 20th century home on lovely grounds. The converted room spaces are cozy and comfortable. Upstairs are spaces for larger groups. Four of us came for Thanksgiving dinner and, overall, it was a pleasant experience. However, there were some rough edges. Our reservation was at 7pm (the end of the evening service). We waited for our table in the bar for probably 15 minutes, and didn't get service for drinks until nearly 10 minutes elapsed. My wife and I ordered the turkey dinner special. The turkey was tasty but the chicken leg was overcooked, and very tough to cut. We also found ourselves wishing we had some sort of cranberry side despite some whole cranberry in the dressing. Midway through our meal, the waiter came by the table to check on us and smelled strongly of cigarettes. The three of us ordered a root salad which was tasty but a bit of a surprise as the menu really didn't explain what sort of thing it really was; we expected a leafy salad with root garnish rather than just roots. The hint of lemon in the butter served with the excellent bread was a delightful surprise. Our guests ordered the beef dinner and raved about it. All of the deserts were fabulous. The house wines were enjoyable and nicely complementary. Despite some negatives, I would certainly come back again to try Preservation Kitchen at a more favorable time.

We ate there for Thanksgiving, so this was a nonstandard menu, and your experience maybe different. That said...

The holiday menu options sounded great on paper - turkey breast with deep-fried turkey drumstick, or filet mignon with braised brisket. In practice, the turkey entree was pretty good. The beef, however, was a 4-oz. underseasoned hunk of filet with a side of pot roast. Really a poor value for $69.

The appetizers were poorly done too. Cheese puffs and fried almonds were served cold, as was the apple-berry crisp dessert, which also tasted old and stale. Our server told us as we were seated that the house had a new chef, so we could expect much higher-end fare than in the past, but in our experience it was much sloppier and less well done than before.

Thanksgiving puts an unfortunate burden on the entire staff who have to work the holiday, so I don't want to be overly hard on them, but a $300-plus tab for dinner warrants a better experience than what we had. We ate there last Thanksgiving with a different chef, and had such an amazing time that it was a no-brainer to return this year. Next Thanksgiving, however, we'll be dining elsewhere.

What a disappointing meal. The Thanksgiving Day "Feast" included ample portions, but the quality just wasn't there. Turkey leg and breast chunks (you read it right -- not slices) were dry and tough. The potato gratin was very close to mash and the gravy was bland. Kudos for the cranberry dressing, but only in comparison to the rest of the meal. At well over $100 for two, outrageous pricing. Ambiance was cheerful though ....
