The Brooklyn Seafood, Steak & Oyster House Ratings and Reviews
The Brooklyn is a great place for oyster lovers and folks who enjoy steak and other seafood. It provides an urban vibe in a relaxed setting. If you just want some oysters, pull up a chair in the oyster bar. For full course dining, the back room provides a comfortable place to dine on solid fare.
The Brooklyn was a nice restaurant. We were from out of town but were specifically looking for a place that served fresh local seafood for my gf and steak for myself. We showed up early for our reservation but was seated right away. Host and waiter was excellent, very kind and friendly and on top of everything. Food wise, started with a Caprese Salad and my gf had a sampler of all the raw oysters. Caprese salad was not really what I was expecting, the balsamic glaze that the mozzarella and tomatoes were in was very sweet almost like a syrup but for the most part was not bad. My gf said the oysters were good. Main course my gf had the halibut and I had the ribeye. Her food was delicious whereas I can't say too much about the ribeye. I paid an extra $6 for the sauce that put over the steak which I thought was a little odd. The steak had the char grilled flavor which I love but other than that I did not taste any seasoning and the sauce that was an extra $6 did not add much more flavor. I also thought the meat was a little tough for being ribeye and the piece I had had a lot of solid fat which was almost a third of the steak. I was just disappointed paying $55 for a steak that I did not feel was worth the price. Dessert we had key lime pie, crème brulee and Irish coffee which were all excellent! again the host, server and ambiance were excellent so next time if we stop by for a meal I will stay away from the steak and try the seafood.
The Brooklyn is great for Benaroya Hall and Seattle Art Museum. Since we were headed to an event, we dined early, but the place soon filled up because of its location. The atmosphere is buzzy but not loud. We had a hard working waiter who was professional enough to comp a beverage when he did not serve it promptly. The menu is varied and tasty. Fresh seafood and steaks (on which I can't comment) come at a price but if you know what you are in for, The Brooklyn delivers.
Oysters are great, drink selection is good. Service was good but never asked if we would like a 2nd round of drinks.
For dinner the entrees were overly priced for the quality of the food. The dishes were not cohesive, did not make sense. Sauces did not go with the dish. Presentation was not appetizing. My sides were burned and chewy. I had spinach and it tasted like canned spinach and was black from over cooking it. Others that I dined with also had blackened side dishes that tasted gross. I expected more with the reputation of having the best happy hour. Perhaps that's because people just go there for oysters and drinks.
My mother (88) and I enjoyed our pre-theater dinner of salad and seafood. Increasingly, it is hard to find a comfortable, fairly quiet restaurant in downtown Seattle. This is one place we can count on for a good selection of scotch and seasonally fresh ingredients.
We come here frequently for dinner before the Symphony. The food is always very good and the service excellent. They are also good at timing so we have a leisurely dinner but make it to the Symphony in plenty of time. The chef's counter is especially good on a cold and wet night as it is warm and toasty sitting there.
The food is a bit pricey but worth the expense. I enjoyed the salmon. The menus is a bit limited but every offering is delicious. I have visited many times and found the service to be unexcelled. The staff enjoys their work and that is reflected in the service they render. Try the vodka sampler. You get five one half ounce pours and five oysters with caviar for $17.00. It is a great price and comes with a sheet explaining what you are tasting and why.
Our evening started with us arriving about 15 minutes early for our reservation. We were seated right, away even though we were ok to wait until our time. Our waiter was wonderful! He kept outer water full and gave us time to catch up with an old friend, who was visiting from out of town, before taking our order. I ordered the filet mignon med rare and my husband ordered the same except medium. Both were perfect and melt in your mouth delicious! Our friend ordered the Pacific Cod, I failed to get his feedback, however; he ate it all leaving me to believe it was good. The waiter checked to see if we wanted desert or coffee and left us to converse never rushing us to leave. Very enjoyable evening.
Thought we were going to an upscale restaurant. Waitress was not friendly or focused on customer service. Food was ok, seafood was good. Bill was 200 for 2 and I could have scaled back the restaurant and got the same for 125! Not worth the money or the experience, because it was a poor experience!
A meal at The Brooklyn is ALWAYS an amazing experience. There is not a thing on the menu that isn't fabulous. My only complaint about this particular visit was with the bottle of wine. We ordered a 2102 California pinot noir specifically because of the vintage, but, the bottle was 2013. Was my bad for not noticing on the label, but, the staff should have pointed this out. Thankfully, the 2013 was delicious.
When I want excellent food and service, you can't go wrong with Brooklyn. We love the taste of their Caesar salad and sandwich choices. Their waiters are quite responsive to our needs and very attentive. Lunch at Brooklyn was a great way to top our visit of the P Allen art exhibit at SAM!
There are many places I do not eat at any longer due to the excessive noise- loud conversations and loud background music. Tables at the Brooklyn were full the night I ate there, but the noise level was such that a quiet conversation was enjoyed as much as the food. Service was spot on-not pushy but attentive. Good recommendation for wine to pair with food. A very relaxing evening.
The Brooklyn is one of our favorite spots for pre-concert dinner. We like 6:00 reservations for 8:00 concerts at Benaroya. It offers a reliably high quality menu and wine selection. For oyster lovers (not me) it has a lot to choose from. Beware of large portions! My wife and I each ordered the "Oregonzola" salad at $13, which was way more than we needed. One for sharing would have been fine. I ordered the Ribeye Pork entrée and could not finish it. I must add that the menu does have several small plate choices. The food and service are always excellent.
I am retired now and do not live in Seattle. However, I used to enjoy having lunch at The Brooklyn on an occasional basis. Co-workers would sometimes have a drinks-after-work get together. Very nice, especially in summer when we could dine/have drinks outdoors. In the two years since I left the Seattle work force, I am happy to report The Brooklyn is still a top place to dine/socialize. Great staff, friendly and attentive waiter, great ambiance. Mixed review on the lobster ravioli. It was very good, but small portion (5 ravioli). The steak sandwich was outstanding. Overall enjoyable experience.
