Wonderful food and drinks without being unnecessarily overpriced. Excellent service and pleasant atmosphere. Not too crowded or too loud. Pretty much perfect.
Great food. Great service.
Food and overall service was fantastic. Rough start, when we arrived the front of house seemed a little out of sorts. Despite having a reservation that was made weeks ago it felt like we surprised the staff. Two tables were hurriedly pushed together near the door to accommodate our group of four, would have thought they would have been more prepared for a reservation. The server was fantastic after the initial confusion and the food we delicious! Table had the Pork Rillettes, Foie Gras, hanger steak, gniochi, and wild boar pasta... everything was amazing! Desert was the Tarte Tatin and Meyer Lemon Sorbet... we will be back, such an great restaurant!
We had a great night with delicious food and impeccable service. Highly recommend!
We had such a great post Valentines meal here. The service was unparalleled - genuinely friendly, helpful, professional. I decided after ordering a cocktail that I was more feeling their wine list ( which is a perfect blend of local and overseas labels), and they removed the drink from our bill. The food was amazing - we had their cheese plate and muscles (outstanding), their pork belly and burger main courses (unbelievable) and a special chocolate hazelnut panna cotta (super). Great atmosphere with the dangling cafe lights and rustically elegant decor. Would definitely rec'.
Food was truly fabulous; simple and refined and super fresh, like in Europe. We had a 5:30 reservation for four and to our surprise when we got up to leave it was 9:30! Loved our time there. It was so very relaxing. My only hiccup which I will bring to the attention of the restaurant is this. I brought two bottles of a French Biodynamic champagne because I have allergies. We ordered the beef rib for two and felt like a beautiful Chateuneuf du Pape to accompany it. The red was superb. Upon check out we were of course charged $30 corkage fee for both of my bottles which I would have sucked up had we not ordered the CDP for $100.00! I think that the restaurant should have removed at least one of our corkage fees. We dined for hours and enjoyed from their menu and wine list. Our server (both), one early and one who joined us a bit later on were both fabulous and exhibited true professionalism.. I would have said something about the corkage at the time but we were so relaxed that I did not want to spoil the moment.
Lovely ambiance, this place always fits the bill for flattering lighting and intimate conversation. Servers are pleasant and attentive but not intrusive. Food is divine but approachable. A real favorite and a true date night spot in the old fashioned sense.
We love Lark. Always wonder for date night, special occasion or business celebration. John and Kelly run an amazing gem of a restaurant. We can’t be more positive about the food, ambiance and overall experience. You should go just make sure we can book a table too!
Excellent in all respects.
Lark will not disappoint! First class food and servers make the entire experience flawless. A terrific wine list, and creative and class cocktails grace the beverage menu. Chef's specials keep the menu fresh and seasonal.
There were good and bad things and I'm hoping it was just an off night for this place.
First the bad...
I ordered the entree sized pasta with boar Ragu at $30.
- it came out lukewarm.
- the waitress didn't check back for over 10 minutes
- it was similar in size to what a child's portion might be. Pasta is cheap, be a little more generous!
- the pasta ( at $30!) was not hand made, it was the dried stuff you get at the store
- the sauce was bland tasting, similar to what you would make at home with canned tomatoes and ground meat.
Now the Good stuff...
- the very kind waitress comped both our meals (my friend ordered the same thing)
- everything else was delicious
-the place is lovely with a great ambiance, wait staff were friendly and pleasant.
I guess I would just suggest, don't order pasta here. Save that for another place that specializes in it. Other than that, just a lovely place.
We had scallops (“nothing special”), fried cod on a bed of greasy rice/mushrooms (ok, nothing special), and a cheeseburger (“delicious”). Steak tartar was good. Gnocchi was tasty. Service was perfect. I researched high quality restaurants and chose Lark. Disappointed.
Lark is one of the best restaurants in Seattle. Excellent, interesting, but not show-offy food. Fabulous service. A place where the customer, not the chef, is at the center of the experience. It's a restaurant for grown-ups. Being able to carry on a conversation with your dining partner is a rare treat these days. I don't come here often but always come back!
Lark is a gem consistently outstanding!!!! One of the very best restaurants in Seattle!!!!
The food was outstanding. I had the scallops and they were wonderful, cooked just right. My husband had the burger and was definitely not disappointed. Our friend had the duck leg which she said was fabulous. It was a very enjoyable evening.
It was pleasant and comfortable. Service was great and professional. Food was delicious and unique.
Overall, we are satisfied and hopefully to visit back soon.
Just awesome, as always. Keep up the great work!
Food is off the chats amazing, go
Dined at Lark on the recommendation of the principals at FareStart. In a word magical. I felt comforted and enticed simultaneously. The team there should be proud of what they’ve accomplished. Chris took care of me as I ate as a single at the Bar and the experience was awesome. kudos to the Lark team. I’ll be back.
Always good way to enjoy dinner with my husband. Love our server. Hate the parking issue.
The service was exceptional, and i'll be back for the gnocchi asap.
Great New Year’s Eve Experience. They did a prix fixe four course dinner that made eating here on New Years more expensive than a usual dinner here.
Always the best! The lighting in the dining room is way too bright, otherwise always a treat.
Anniversary dinner! Cozy room, excellent service and delicious menu. We loved our time here!
Didn’t know what to expect - was given this dinner as a gift. Took my wife and two adult children, and we were all very impresssed with the quality, care and service. It’s evident a lot of love goes into the menu, ambience and overall experience. Thanks to all.
The server was sick which made it uncomfortable
i was not in the mood for a large entree and so i ordered their hamburger. My wife ordered a starter rather then an entree, and my son ordered the duck as a main. there was a delay in our meal, so our waitress kindly brought a snack of salted nuts. when my hamburger arrived, i picked it up and immediately felt my fingers sink into a very soggy bun. ugh. there was a very bitter taste combination of red onion and greens on the top of the meat that i had to remove because of the taste. i couldn't pick the burger up due to the bottom bun being so soggy, so i placed the burger on the top bun and ate it with a knife and fork.
i should have had the hanger steak i guess. very disappointing.
The best restaurants can maintain the highest quality for years and years. This is one of those places. Every time my family and I eat here it feels special. Every time. I don't think I can say that about many other restaurants in town.
Another fabulous meal at Lark. Exceptional seasonal cuisine, refined but not fussy : Amazing Hamachi crudo, and venison, really loved the quail preparation. We will be back again and again!
Seared foie gras is just perfect! Steak tartare omg! The portions are just super small. It’s a very cozy decorated restaurant. The service is very good as well! I will still go back and even recommend this restaurant in special occasions.
Scrumptious food elegantly presented and a warm, easy environment and service
This restaurant needs more than two Sous Chefs on a busy night! The owner/ chef just came into the kitchen to pick up some food to go. He needs to pay a bid more attention on the Quality and presentation
We dined there with out of town guests after the symphony last Sunday and where greeted by a host, with shirt hanging out of his pants, than came the unprofessional looking waiter to take our order. Drinks took 15 minutes, appetizers came rather quick and they were okay. Entree’s for our whole table arrived warm, not hot. Sitting to long, before being picked up. Crispy greens next to my wife’s steak were greasy and unseasoned, steak was under cooked and tuff . Quail, tuff and cold. Scallops crispy and very brown on the outside, over cooked. Gnocchi were good, but cold. As a retired European Executive Chef I expected more from a Restaurant of this caliber with a great chef/owner.
The food tastes heavenly. We love everything they make. And the staff is delightful. It’s a real treat
Food is excellent! The waitress was not friendly. Actually she seemed arrogant. Parking is difficult to find. I would still return to this restaurant for excellent food.
Food was amazing, service was great, staff was super knowledgeable and attentive, ambiance is great. Loved it and will be back!
Amazing, friendly service that was attentive and executed fabulously.
Every time we eat at Lark, we come away feeling like we just celebrated a special occasion--even if it's just a Tuesday night. Always delicious. Always memorable.
The food was wonderful. The truffle chips were amazing!
The Lark never ceases to amaze us with the quality and variety of their menu!
Service is always impeccable!
