The atmosphere was comfortable. The wine list was great, we had a red from Trust Vineyards in Walla Walla. The bread with olive oil was tasty. Our meals, cod and steak, were delicious. We will be back!!
Whenever we visit Seattle, we make sure to make a reservation go have dinner here! We love this restaurant. The atmosphere is wonderful and a great place to celebrate a special occasion the st and melt in your mouth. Don't forget to save room for dessert, it is amazing, too!
Excellent crabcake. Scallop was very good, though I prefer one without the seasoning. Salads were ok.
the oysters were perfect!! the Ahi tuna should be on the happy hour menu, not as a main course item. Super let down by that. The salmon, beautiful presentation, quality-fantastic, well done!
Wonderful food & great service! We were in a bit of a hurry to catch a show and our waiter made sure we ordered the appropriate dishes and we had a delicious meal with plenty of time to spare.
Always a favorite, we will be returning to The Brooklyn again soon.
No better steaks and oysters in Seattle... and the cod was simply amazing. We weren't rushed for our Valentines dinner despite having a premium table. The Brooklyn is a classic part of Seattle dining and always great for a date night.
I enjoyed my duck dinner. The menu is varied and service was great.
Disappointing service from our waiter. He wasn’t fully present—not aware, inexperienced, slow——-not the caliber that the Brooklyn deserves to have repping their place.
We stopped in for a lovely meal on our way to a show at the 5th Avenue Theater. Our server was lovely, and suggested the scallop appetizer, which was incredible. It was the perfect stop on our special night!
In my last review, I was very disappointed in the service we received that night. I am quite happy to report a much nicer experience in this go around. But I will mention that the waiter asked us up front about attending a show and made a strong point of emphasizing an early order. We had a lovely experience at an old favorite.
Always great service and great food, for any occasion.
Our experience was wonderful overall. Truly my only disappointment was a small part of my meal. We both ordered the filet minon. The steak was perfect and so were the potatoes. However my carrot and the onion ring must've been just for looks because they were hard as a rock. If your chef wants a bit of feedback I'd say take those off the dish. 😬 Thank you for a great evening and amazing service!!
Went to the Brooklyn for dinner after the Symphony since it is across the street from Benaroya Hall. The décor is charming, with French posters on the wall. It was like going back in time to a bar / restaurant in old Chicago. The steaks were impeccably prepared and wonderful. The oysters were amazingly fresh, some of the best we've ever had. However, the cod was a little overdone and the salmon still a bit on the raw side. So I would recommend mostly the oysters and steak. It is a bit pricey, even with sharing plates over $60/person. I imagine it would be a good place for executives to take in a business lunch / dinner and not a particularly affordable family outing.
We loved the restaurant--we had the option of being seated at a table or at the bar to watch the chefs cook. We chose the table which was very cozy and a bit quieter. The food and the service were great!
We had the privilege to dine at the Brooklyn for our early Valentine's Day weekend. Wow! is all I can say. The food the excellent, the service was superior, the ambiance was just what we wanted, romantic and quiet. Highly recommended!
John was our waiter. He was AWESOME! With hi great presence, service, and conversations, he made us feel welcomed and well cared for. His smile and knowledge of the menu were professional and added to the atmosphere of the place!!! Thanks John for a wonderful dining experience!!

Loved the quiet ambiance in our booth....we could easily HEAR each other which is a problem in many other restaurants. Excellent professional service, great cuisine, lovely, rich old ambiance. THANK YOU!
Great lunch with a good friend whose retirement/birthday we celebrated. Nice ambience, wonderful service, excellent shared club sandwich (very ample for 2) --
We often eat at this restaurant before attending a symphony concert. Although a little on the high side for pricing the food is always good and creative. We have always found the service to be attentive without being obtrusive.
As with most downtown restaurants the wine prices are very high when purchasing by the glass.
