The Brooklyn Seafood, Steak & Oyster House Ratings and Reviews
The reviews are very misleading. This place is an over priced sports bar. They have multiple TV’s displaying sporting events.
We went for the seafood and oysters. The oyster selection was fantastic and they were excellent... except for the 1 of 3 condiments was cocktail sauce. The other two were chef prepared. Them being advertised as a seafood restaurant, we were really hoping to have some sort of crab dish.... unfortunately all they had was crab cakes. West coast crab cakes. If you have spent time along the east coast, you know what I mean. 10% crab meat and 90% breading. We were disappointed. The staff was professional yet not very friendly or even willing to engage us in short conversation.
I ordered the lamb leg which was excellent. The oysters were excellent. Everything else was fair. For $175 per person, we were disappointed. I’m sure others enjoy that place, but we wouldn’t recommend it.... except for the oysters. Go for the oysters and a football game. Maybe they will have chicken wings next time.
My friend and I were on a girls weekend away we wanted a nice dinner so decided to try this we arrived shortly after 8 and were told 3 times that we had to have our orders in by 9 which we found very rude and rushed. (We had made a reservation online so why have that time if you didn't want people there). The food came and my steak was well over cooked the server didn't seem to care... the new steak came out and the outside was burnt while the inside was pretty raw still (they were in a rush to get out so i can understand not taking the time to make the steak perfectly). At that point I was over the whole meal and just stopped eating it. I am pretty upset considering this was a 60 dollar meal and it was a terrible experience. For that price the meal should have been one of the best I've had and it wasn't. I could get a better steak for much much less. Disappointed and would not recommend this place
We booked this restaurant for good seafood. We left disappointed and will not be returning nor will recommend to anyone. The server we had was unhappy and it felt like he was angry for some reason. Food was not great- mediocre! I would have preferred to walk a few blocks to another restaurant.
The Brooklyn has always been a favorite; ever since it first opened I have been an occasional patron. The food is excellent, the staff mostly is good, though they can get a little high brow as if we should be privileged to be in their presence. LOL I suppose that does come from the Brooklyn’s rep.
The Brooklyn is pricey, though the food quality and preparation is exquisite. And this visit was definitely much better than my last visit.
My favorite place to sit is the chef's bar! Big "13 Coins-esque" bar chairs in front of the grill are the perfect place to watch the kitchen action. The oysters are fabulous as are steaks and fish. I had the lamb shank this last time, and I am still thinking about how great it was! The outside was crisp and flavorful, and the meat practically melted off the bone. My martini was great--they know how to pour them. It is not an inexpensive dinner out, so unfortunately I only go a couple of times a year; I would go once a month if I could afford it!
This was a remarkably good experience - all around. Our food was fantastic, our waiter was one of the best, and the ambiance was comfortable and classy. The waiter noticed our theatre tickets on the table and made sure we made it out on-time. He had great recommendations and was attentive without being overbearing. This was one of the best Seattle dining experiences we’ve ever had!
Per the suggestion of the front desk clerk at our hotel, when I mentioned I wanted something delicious, he suggested The Brooklyn. So glad he did.
Crab cakes were the best I’ve ever had. Oysters paired with vodka were amazing. Service was above the bar (thanks Rachel). All in all the best meal we had in Seattle.
This is our 16th year of dining here before a special concert. The service is outstanding in every way... knowledge of the food preparation and the pacing of the courses. The servers are impressive in that they have been there for years... well treated, we assume. The menu, while somewhat limited in options for each category, really does have something for everyone. It is easily viewed on-line. Overall, it is a wonderful dining experience for lunch or for dinner. Reservations are necessary at busy times (after games and before/after events at Benaroya Hall across the street as well as at lunchtime.) Can't wait to return !!!
The service was too quick and pushy one night, too slow and inattentive the other.
The crabcake was excellent, one of the best anywhere.
The filet was cooked to order (medium rare) and yet was cold and tough.
The wine list leans too heavily on Washington (local) wines.
I think Capital Grille does a better job (ouch.)
We had a great time. Excellent service and drinks. The calamari and oysters were spot on. Almost everything was perfect but one dish underwhelmed and the management graciously took it off the bill. Good staff and great attitude. I’ve been going to the Brooklyn for years but this was the first time I had dinner service and it didn’t disappoint.
First time at The Brooklyn and had a wonderful time! Service was great, our server was very good and friendly. The food was outstanding (you have to try the Creme Brûlée!), and when I accidentally left my credit card they called me immediately, and held it for me until the next day. Outstanding ambience for a nice intimate dinner. Will definitely be back!
Usually I really love coming to the Brooklyn and it pains me that our recent experience fell short of expectations as this is one of my favorite special occasion restaurants.
Our reservation was at 5 pm and one member was late but we ordered everything no later than 5:20 pm and told the server that we had a show at 7 pm. Yes, one of our guests ordered the chicken and we were fine with that as we ordered pretty much right away. Our entrees were served after we said we might have to leave with them boxed at 6:40. So we hurried through our meal (less than 5 minutes) and had to ask for our check as well. The meal was tasty but certainly it should not have taken an hour and twenty minutes to prepare. Secondly our rib eye steak appeared to have been warming for a long while. It was very disappointing to wolf down this dinner in such a hurry.
I am very well aware that it is the holiday season and we were not the only people running up the hill from the Brooklyn to the 5th avenue theater. But this is a very well established restaurant and usually the experience from drinks, food, to service is impeccable. I sincerely hope this was an off night for the staff and the Brooklyn returns to the service I have learned to expect.
