The Brooklyn Seafood, Steak & Oyster House Ratings and Reviews
A classic in Seattle! Knowledgeable and friendly staff. It has been 20 years since our last visit and the place was as beautiful inside as we remembered. A little slow due to being Sunday night, but the food was great and the local oysters very fresh. Staff was quite helpful and helped us by arranging a taxi for our return trip to an area hotel. The wine list focused on Washington wines and prices were quite reasonable.
Another wonderful experience at The Brooklyn.
We eat here often before Seattle Symphony performances and really do enjoy the venue and the food. Our last visit was not as good as others, the filet wasn't cooked properly to order but the waiter 'made it good'. It seems to be getting more gourmet though, which we don't care for; i.e. there were supposed to be carrots and asparagus...where???? To me it was more for garni than part of the meal. Disappointing. They have also done away with ice cream and sorbet...booooo. Who wants another 1000 calories after a big meal? The salad, small bites and meats are still good, we will continue to recommend the restaurant and continue to eat here prior to the symphony. Would just like to see more veges on the entrée and maybe a selection of something 'comfort' food.
Very disappointing signature salmon dish for a “fish restaurant”. Sautéed and smoked salmon was flavorful but dry as a biscuit. The server graciously took it back. The prawn tapas looked beautiful and had a nice presentation with bacon wrapped around the base, BUT, the prawns were flavorless. I suspect they were defrosted in a tub of water.
The lamb shank in the other hand, may have been one of the best lamb shanks I’ve ever sampled. Wonderful fall off the bone super flavorful with a crust.
The ambience is festive and comfortable. The cocktail and wine lists are memorable.
My husband and I have enjoyed The Brooklyn as long as we have lived in Seattle. The service, ambiance and food as always very good. The wine list is exceptional and the craft cocktails are some of the best.
What irked me this visit was a charge of $4.50 for bread for a dinner tab of $150.00. It was offensive.
I was expecting a melt-in-your-mouth type of steak and was surprised that it wasn't. The scalloped potato was so dry I wasn't even able to eat it. The asparagus was great. I basically spent $50 on steak that wasn't worth the price. My husband and I had pizza later that night.
One of the filets (med ) had a bad taste, almost rancid. They did take it off the bill. The rest of the food was alright. Not quite as good as we have had before at the Brooklyn and tonight's meal was definitely not worth the price of the meal. The oysters and crab cakes were good. The other two steaks were ok. Again, was like eating at a mediocre meal at a high price.
We booked the reservation through Open Table. We arrived about 30 mins early to get a drink at the bar, but they offered to go ahead and seat us. Once seated, we were quickly attended to by one of the best waiters I have ever had. He was attentive, professional, personable, and efficient. The whole meal from start to finish was A+. It was a great night!
From the time we entered the restaurant the attention and service was impeccable. Our waiter, Eric, was most knowledgeable, courteous, and professional. I The drinks and wine selection were great and substantial. Better pour then many of the restaurants in the area. The menu selections were most impressive. The rack of lamb was superb as well as two different steak selections.So, we had a wonderful night. We will be back. It's on our list as one of the best restaurants in Seattle. Thank you.
My husband and I have loved The Brooklyn for years. But this was not 'our' Brooklyn. What happened? It was so noisy we had to nearly shout at each other to be heard (and it was a very small table). The food was not good - nothing like it used to be. Somehow the prices went up, but the taste and quality went WAY WAY down. I had the duck - which was flabby, tasteless and VERY rare. Normally I like rare, but it had an off-taste, like raw blood. I choked down as much as I could, but left half on my plate - not easy to do at those prices. The duck came with a spoonful of completely tasteless cous cous - not even salt on it. Two half-spears of asparagus that looked like it was heated in a microwave, and two 1/2 inch pieces of mushy carrots. Two, half inch pieces. That's it. It was one of the worst restaurant meals that I've ever had. My husband had the lamb, which was better. But, again, it was accompanied by few, plain sides that he said didn't have much taste. Nothing on the plates was yummy, creamy or hearty. It was all dry pieces of things. We also had the prawn appetizer. Store-bought thin slices of cucumber, smoked prawns and candied prosciutto. The only thing that had flavor was the prawns. Those were good. The rest was bland. How do you make bland prosciutto? Somehow they did. Our server was a scowling, unhappy, grumpy woman. She clearly wanted to be elsewhere. We were not rude. And we didn't ask for special things. We smiled and showed her we were happy to be there. But she didn't play along. She was just not nice. And she didn't care to hide it. I was so disappointed. Even more so when the bill came. $150 for bland, tasteless food in a dining room so noisy we had to shout to be heard. Our (former) favorite restaurant is now bottom of our list. I don't know what happened to The Brooklyn, but it isn't good.
When we asked the 3 hotel staff at the front desk about The Brooklyn they, in absolute, complete unison sighed out "Wonderful!". Well, duh, I took that as a clue and you should too!
Great service, excellent location near Pioneer Square, and super fresh menu (we did all seafood). We started with the oyster sampler; they almost melted in your mouth and sea sweet. We shared small plates - you just can't go wrong at this place.
Excellent service - our waiter knew we needed to be at the symphony at 7:30PM, and got us out on time, with no rush at any point. Waiter was friendly and helpful. Food was excellent, with outstanding choices. Prices were reasonably moderate for Seattle. I would recommend this restaurant for either everyday dining or for special occasions. Had a wonderful time.
Brooklyn was for our group of 5 a very pleasant surprise with its wide selection of fresh oysters and interesting seafood menu of quality. They also offer steaks and one or two dishes for vegetarians, but it was the seafood which grabbed our attention. Halibut was fresh and well prepared. The Brooklyn crab cake is one of the best of that genre we have experienced. All in all, a very nice place to dine. Service was excellent.
The oysters were great!! Service was excellent from Nick.
The main course dinner was disappointing. My wife ordered the Steak Oscar and was overcooked and lacked the flavor that is expected for the most expensive steak on the menu, very disappointing. I ordered the lamb shank, again over cooked, dry and just not the quality that was expected. Maybe the kitchen was having an off night, but overall disappointing.
What an incredible meal! Could be the best meal I've ever had! Oysters! Fresh and tasty! Salad! Fresh and delicious with lots of blue cheese! Steak! So tender you could cut it with your fork! Almost melted in my mouth! Incredible flavor! The service from Kevin was wonderful! Can't wait to visit Seattle again!
I went here with my friend after work one day and we did the Oyster tasting, that was amazing. I took my wife here for our regular date night and they loved it! I'm easy to please with burgers, my wife had the Oyster Sampler and was very impressed by the freshness!
