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.
Best meal ever!
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!
The food was good and Eric was an outstanding professional. Typical over-priced Downtown Seattle fare but delivered well.
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!
My guest had a scallop small plate for $18. There was one scallop. This was a rip off.
Whenever I come to Seattle from Bellingham, I HAVE to eat at the BROOKLYN....perfect for trips to SAM OR BENAROYA HALL
