RN74 - Seattle Ratings and Reviews
Little frustrates me more than when a restaurant takes reservations and doesn't work to honor them. We made a reservation for 6:30 prior to an 8:00 show as RN74 is near 5th Ave. Theater. Timing would have worked quite well but it took them nearly half an hour to seat us for our reservation. When we were sat we asked to order immediately and noted the time constraint. "No problem" we were told. However, we received our food five minutes prior to having to leave. What we were able to eat was quite good, but I hated paying for food I wasn't given the opportunity to enjoy. If you take reservations, please treat them seriously. In the end, I simply can't recommend this restaurant.
I don't normally take the time to leave reviews, but I love this restaurant.. It is a favorite. With all of the great restaurants in Seattle, this is one restaurant I continue to return. Consistent. Definitely great for out of town guests too. I don't normally order steak (I think there are more interesting food choices), but I now order the steak/frites. The Hangar and the Strip are the 2 best steaks I think I have ever had (the au poivre sauce is great too!). The French75 was too tart for me, but then ordered a Paper Plane and it was perfect. The Sommelier helped with a great bottle of Pinot Noir (usually too light for my preference, but it was full and delicious!) He took the time to explain the region of France it came from and how I should request Pinots in the future for my palate preference. The first bottle was "corked". He had already determined this so we would have never have known, but took the time to have us smell the cork and then taste the corked wine so we could taste the subtle difference in the future (it smelled and tasty a bit musty). Beignets! Yum! Tuna tartare tartare! Yum. I usually like the seared Foie Gras as well, but did not have this past night. RN 74 is definitely a favorite.... have been going there for years.
food was pedestrian with over priced menu. nice ambiance with ok staff. we ordered flank steak and seafood. my husband had his steak ordered medium and it came out rare and cold. They put it back on the fire and came back with medium well and without the herb butter and the french fries really oily. The mac and cheese was too salty for our side dish. Did not bother to complaint.
I have eaten here before, but this time found the service to be very slow, and the food nothing special at all. We arrived at 6 for a 6:15 reservation because we were going to see a play. It took us almost 2 hours to complete the meal. We were there on a price fixe meal offer, so nothing special as far as meal prep. The copy on the ad said we'd be served a 3 course meal, but what was actually listed on the vouchers was evidently different than the ad copy-what we received was 2 courses and we were charged another $22.00 for dessert. Between that, and wine, coffee, tip etc. the $80.00 meal turned into $200.00. For $200.00, I can assure you there are 10 other places we could have eaten at within a 6 block radius that would have blown this place away. So, we will not be back- even for Happy Hour. There are much better options.
The ambiance was great at RN74 and we were celebrating a birthday. The evening started out well with a nice card on the table from the restaurant. Then it took quite some time for our server to greet us and start with waters while we looked at the drink menu. A drink was ordered and also ordered our meals.
While our salad and soups were getting cleared our server also took the wine glass that still had a couple sips left in it. We waited for our next opportunity to let them know, but some time has passed until she returned. Our next course came out and still haven’t ordered our next drink. We eventually were visited again by the server and let them know about the glass that was taken away and they fixed it by “pouring a little extra” in the next one. Not sure if they actually did but at least it was acknowledged.
The meal was what I expected from a restaurant in this price range, but it wasn’t anything spectacular. For an establishment like this I was expecting much more in terms of quality of food and especially service, I don’t think it is intended that duck fat French fries were the most memorable part of what we ate that evening.
My wife and I had not been out to a fancy dinner for over 6 months so we did some research and RN47 was on a short list of spots we wanted to try. We have eaten at many of the top Seattle spots and want to go to a new place. We ordered the 5 course RN chef tasting experience with the Grande wine pairing. Each dish was timely, explained to us, and presented in the highest form of food art. Each flavor was spectacular and unique. Our server Jim and the team took excellent care of us and hats off to the chef and his crew. The restaurant had a fantastic decor and ambience. Small dishes and premium price only thing hard to take but then again you get what you pay for and this experience was worth it.
Modern open vibe. Interesting cocktail menu--the Maple Manhattan was quite nice. Wine selection is reasonably priced. Filet Mignon was perfectly cooked with duck fat frites that were flavorful. Bouillabaisse was rich with good variety of seafood. Would definitely dine there again.
Our dining experience at RN74 was magnificent all the extra touches were so heartfelt and appreciated. When we sat down there was a hand written card wishing us a happy anniversary, followed by champagne and more anniversary wishes. Our dishes, tartare, duck & steak were delicious, a great combination of flavors. Towards the end of our meal we were surprised again with an add on dessert with a candle and more well wishes. The restaurant is beautiful, food is delicious but all the extra touches truly made our dinner extra special - thsnk you RN74.
I wasn't sure what to expect what with the mixed reviews, but overall was very pleased. The food was delicious (beet endive salad, French onion soup, duck) though the food should have been served a little hotter. Service was good and friendly. We had an appointment for 7 pm. I called at 6:10 pm, after being kicked out of the Seattle Art Museum due to closing, and they accommodated us coming in about 30 minutes early.
We really enjoyed the vibe of this restaurant. The food was very good but on the expensive side. We decided to order a bunch of appetizers to make it a small-plate experience and that worked out well. They had a wide variety of wines and their ‘last bottle’ list was on the old train station schedule ‘ticker’ boards. So cool!
The ambiance and food was delicious. We had the truffle bread, steak tartar, Brussels sprouts, mushroom fricasee and salmon. They were wonderful. The service was very slow. We had allowed 2 hours for a good arty of 9 and told our waitress we had a show to catch. The drinks were still painfully slow even though the bar was not busy and food was slow. When it did finally arrive it was fantastic.
I’ve been to RN74 before and remember liking the food, but my husband and I went for NYE dinner and we were sooo disappointed with the quality of food and exorbitant price tag. The fixed menu was nothing special at $115. My husband ordered the regular fixed menu and I ordered the vegetarian option. My main course was lentils and mushroom. Neither impressive nor did it taste good. Please explain to me how that justifies $115! We felt ripped off but excused it since it was New Year’s Eve. In hindsight, we decided we were ripped off and wouldn’t come back.
What a great way to start off NewYears Eve. The tasting menu was awesome. I cannot decide between the SLOW-ROASTED TURBOT A LA CANCALAISE or the NIMAN RANCH PRIME DRY-AGED NEW YORK STRIP LION as the best OK both no actually all dishes were superb. The Grande Wine Pairings were spot on, very impressive. The Chateau de Beaucastel, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Rhône Valley, FR 1998 was particularly awesome with the New York Strip Loin. The chef Gary FX Lamorte was kind enough to come to our table and I complemented him and his staff on the excellent presentation and the taste of courses. If in Seattle, you must visit RN74.
Delicious. Probably the best chicken I have ever enjoyed except for the chicken leg (coq uu vin) and the leg only was a little on the dry side. Lovely Birthday wishes when we arrived and birthday dessert treat because we were so stuffed we didn't really order dessert. Had a decent wine pairings. Definitely suggest talking to the sommelier vs. waitress for wine suggestions. Sommelier was considerate and attentive. Did they assume we couldn't afford a nicer wine? That was a little weird they suggested a more price friendly when it wasn't the genuinely best pairing -- a couple choices might have been a little sweeter. And, given it was Christmas Eve, service was good but not amazing -- had to wait a while to order wine pairing for meal and for the check. But was a great table, great experience. Yum. I'd do that again!
Belated anniversary dinner in December. There was no problem canceling our original reservation (when someone got sick), and they were very gracious when circumstances brought us to this reservation 20 minutes late (we called ahead to let them know - politeness works both ways!). The waiter was personable and helpful. Although he pushed our dinners through in order for us to make theatre reservations, it still took forever and we had to pay our bill before we finished dinner. Food was great. Surprising number of people with young children, but kudos to the adults for actually making them behave.
