Steelhead Diner Ratings and Reviews
the seafood was perfectly prepared and the poutine was as good as promised. the only downside of the evening was that our really nice waiter was clueless about the wine list and the service was kind of slow. when asked about the wines, he had absolutely no training and admitted that they rarely get to taste the wines they serve. he said he would send his manager over and after waiting 10 mins for the manager, who never showed up, we just went ahead and picked one ourselves.
Steelhead Diner was delicious! The food was excellent, and the ambiance was great as well. But, I will say that the service was great at the beginning, and then really slowed down and was not very attentive. This was the 3rd time I had been there, and that never happened the first 2 times. Overall, I would highly recommend!
Steelhead never fails! The food is fantastic and Chef Anthony always has excellent selections on the menu. Still, my favorites are the Caviar Pie and the Razor Clam Chowder. The staff never lets your water glass or bread basket empty either. I can guarantee you won't leave there hungry!
Absolutely amazing food! Appetizers are large portions, so beware ordering too many for the table. The fried cheese curds (from Beecher's across the street) were pure heaven. Baked Macaroni and Cheese will spoil you for all others. And the braised pork collar was the best I've ever had. Prices are very very reasonable for the value received. It's on my list of must-visits whenever I'm in Seattle!
This was our first time visiting "Steelhead Diner", so when we invited our out-of-town friends to meet us there for dinner, we were hoping it would be a good dining experience. Good is not the rating I would give--GREAT, is more like it! Three out of four of our entrees were WONDERFUL! (I ordered the Fish & Chips, the fries were delicious, however,the batter on the fish was bland.) My wife and guests ordered more significantly and were all extremely satisified! Kudos to the chef for providing an authentic 'gumbo ya ya'(what we New Orleans folks call dark roux gumbo with andouille and chicken) to the menu. I've ordered "New Orleans Style" items from Seattle menus before only to be disappointed-this gumbo was "tre magnifique!
I go to Steelhead often for business-ish lunches. It's great--food's very good, the location is unbeatable, and the price ranges on the menu offer something tenable for everyone--from $6.95 for a very filling plate of rice and beans to full-scale lunch entrees in the $20-plus range. Love it.
This was my second visit to the Steelhead Diner. The first time was incredible and I had been dreaming of the meal I enjoyed ever since. The second time around was medium and I was disappointed, probably because I was really looking forward to going back. Maybe it was just a bad night. Definitely a great spot! If you go in Spring, the pasta with the local fiddle heads and nettles was a perfect 10 out of 10.
I had been to Steelhead Diner in the past and had thought the food and service was excellent. My wife and I decided to spend our first anniversary at Steelhead Diner because of our previous experience but were greatly disappointed in both the food and service. One of the appetizers tasted very good but our other appetizer and both entrees were not up to par. The service was very slow and quite unfriendly. I shared my experience with some friends that used to frequent the restaurant and they recently had the same experience. Am not planning on visiting the Steelhead Diner again.
What a great place! We have been several times and always have a great experience. The staff are very friendly and there is a very upbeat atmosphere. I would recommend Steelhead Diner to any out-of-towners and tell them to get an order of the cheese curds!!
This is my second time there. The reason I suggested it was because of the Gumbo. I had to have more. It is hard to find good New Orlean's style gumbo west of the Mississippi. Also the Collard Greens were highly recommended but this past time they were a bit vinegary. Overall a great meal, and a good time was had by all.
We had a fantastic brunch at Steelhead. We enjoyed our meals. I had a crab eggs Benedict which was amazing. Where steelhead continues to fail is with service. Our server was uninterested, didn't offer to get us another drink after our first was done, and I had to ask repeatedly for a water refill. The beat place in Steelehwad is the bar in front of the kitchen. The food is good there and the service fine. You sit elsewhere in the restaurant at your own risk.
A great place to bring visitors who are foodie seafood lovers. The menu changes depending on what's fresh, and you generally can't go wrong with any of the seafood entrees. Of all the meals I've eaten here, once my halibut was overcooked and it was too busy to send back, but the rest were all prepared perfectly. At lunchtime, the fried chicken sandwich is simply to die for.
The food was very good. The service was not good. The restaurant was extraordinarily crowded and hot. We were there for 3 and a half hours. I was very disappointed overall. Even though I had specifically asked for a nice table for 9, they stuck us with a table that should not have been more than 6 so it was elbow to elbow.
Steelhead Diner is a local favorite. The upscale diner fare is always hearty and fresh. This visit, food and drinks were great as usual. Service was slow and indifferent, however. Once seated, we waited for what seemed like ages watching waitstaff walk by our table on their way elsewhere - our server then came over only after we flagged a busperson. She was brusque and distracted and gave us the bare minimum of attention throughout our dinner. I think the staff was more focused on the several large parties who arrived just after we did (a party of two), but that shouldn't be an excuse. We'll go back, but I would hope management pays attention to how their servers cope with parties of all sizes.
The food was good (enough), but the service was not enjoyable. The overall staff morale seemed low, and so our meal was more like an imposition than the enjoyable event we were anticipating. Given the number of great places to eat in Seattle, I will seek more up-beat venues on future visits.
We liked the upscale ambiance you got as soon as you entered. Both the cod and the haddock were fresh and flavorful. The half portions option was plenty for each of us, even the guys. The service was professional and friendly and the wait staff was well versed on the menu and made solid recommendations. We brought a large bouquet over for our guests an hour in advance of our reservation and the staff had it waiting on the table when we arrived. An extra touch of service that we appreciated.
The food we ate was amazing. We had the fried cheese curds as an appetizer and couldn't get enough of them. The spicy sweet mustard sauce was so good I was eating it with a spoon after the curds were all gone. My husband and I shared a side of the red beans and rice, and it was probably the best we'd ever had--which says a lot because my husband grew up in New Orleans. I had the halibut for dinner, and it was cooked perfectly. My husband had the pork collar, and it was so incredibly tender and flavorful. Our waiter was extremely helpful and gave us great food and wine recommendations. We sat out on the patio which was really nice, quiet, and kind of hidden.
