Great food with wonderful seasoning. The oysters were garnished with herbs and the meltingly delicious lamb had a complex seasoning with undertones of fennel. The Lemon pottet

came with a perfect, tender Swiss meringue that beautifully complemented the tart of the citrusy lemon curd. However, we went on a Saturday night and the two of us could barely hear each other across our tiny table. Unpleasant to have to almost shout over our lovely food.

The food and service was excellent. The cocktails, particularly the one with the duck confit(!), were executed amazingly well. A nice bit of the higher-end dining experience as the Greenwood neighborhood goes. Cheers FlintCreek!

Great service, good food (although the bison was a bit bland), but way too noisy for conversation. The staff gave us the quietest table (upstairs) which was very nice of them, but man that place is loud! Too bad, because it's one of the best restaurants in the north end.

Meal was sooooo delish! Everything - from the eggplant starter, pickled vegetables & baby gem salads, up to moses lake pork chops & chicken entrees. Service was very good, and recommendations from our server were spot on. We will definitely be back.

Very overpriced for what you get. Service was slow and forgot our starters. Luckily we weren't charged. All the food came at once with several servers which was nice. Steaks are underwhelming but sides were absolutely lovely. Corkage fee is $30. I don't know what the norm is but it felt high.

this place was fantastic. I gave it 4/5 stars on ambience because I thought it was cold in the restaurant. And on price, I thought the wine was a little steep in price.....
The food was great with nice choices and stuff that is different from the average fare. Beautiful interior which is nicely done and nice restrooms. The staff was very friendly and waitstaff super knowledgeable and approachable !

Our experience was pleasant at FlintCreek. The composed dished seemed to vary greatly in portion size. Duck breast was underwhelmingly small, while the pork chop was one of the largest dishes i have ever seen. To see these two dishes next to each other for the same price is laughable. The flavors on both were great but i think the duck breast dish needs some work. Overall it was a nice evening but i prefer RockCreek hands down.

The food was excellent, the cocktails were interesting and delicious. It seemed that the server was fairly uninterested in his job, but he did it adequately. Overall, we will be going back, but we may sit at the bar in the future or try to get a different server.

One of the best meals I've had recently. Traveled to Seattle on a whim from LA and decided to try this place... So happy I did. The BLT salad was phenomenal. I'm not a fan of bacon in general but this bacon was the king of bacons. I very much enjoyed the Durham Ranch Bison Hanger Steak as well. The combination of roasted walnuts with the cashew blue was quite delicious and the onion marmalade added a nice sweetness. Taste and quality go hand in hand and this place exceeds at both. Thank you Chef Erick for introducing yourself to this solo traveler and sharing your cuisine with me during this trip. I head back to LA - the land of foodies and quality dining completely satisfied.

FlintCreek has a great atmosphere for a date with an exciting menu to accompany it, but the reality of it is that items are overpriced for the quality of the food. The highlight of the meal was the acorn squash appetizer. We ordered the lamb and bison steak -- didn't leave much of an impression. The brussel sprouts seemed undercooked and lacking in flavor. Sorry to say it, but the brussel sprouts at Whole Foods is 100x more flavorful! Regarding the service, the small details like missing utensils (no forks for the appetizer and having to wait for utensils after the entrees were delivered), then getting asked if we wanted the check when we were just served dessert felt rushed to us. There were several tables still seated at that point, so it didn't seem like a push for us to leave for closing hours -- probably just a premature gesture. At $147 for the meal for a party of two (and that's with only one person drinking), I'd expect a higher level of quality and attention to the details in food and service. Will close on a positive note and mention that the service was very friendly and the overall flow of when each course was served was well-paced.

New in town and trying out the food scene in Seattle. Portions were just right but pricey. Food presentation was average. There were 5 of us - ordered the duck confit and duck breast, braised bison, pork chop, and venison. Some of the flavors got lost in the mix. 2 sauces served with the duck breast did not complement the meat. The cranberry sauce with the venison somewhat overwhelmed. Dessert was mediocre. Cocktail too sweet, not balanced. Wine list needs to be upgraded a bit.

Son came in to town to visit and I had heard good things about this place. Being a greenwood native thought it would be nice to go back to the hood. Only problem was the homeless guy knocking on our window when we were trying to enjoy our meal. Thank goodness for the man sitting by us that he went outside and asked the homeless panhandler to leave he must of been very convincing because they all left. Every thing was wonderful after that. Btw son said it was one of the best steaks he had ever had

Good ambience but not too pretentious, good service, great food. Lamb tartare was more than enough to make us excited for main dishes, bison steak was great while duck breast was just a par. The highlight was the desert though. Bruleed banana dish was to die for.

We love Rock Creek, and we respect the folks who own both these restaurants and we want them to succeed. Every experience at Rock Creek was superb. Five experiences at Flint Creek have been OK to marginal. Saturday night with out of town friend was not good. Actually, our friend had the med-rare bison and it was delicious. My husband had the pork and it was humungous, and very dry, which he told the waitress and she ignored him. I did not tell her that the medium rare lamb chops were barely medium, but tasted good. We feel that all the fine food and restaurants in Seattle represents a privilege and we rarely complain. We, also, take exception to the always cold and exceedingly loud atmosphere. The artwork is beautiful, but there is not one soft edge anywhere. The hostesses were wonderful. Our waitress was lovely, until she totally ignored a serious comment and just became too busy and unavailable. Yes, we paid her well, after all she is not the chef, but she does, indeed represent him to us, with some responsibility.

FlintCreek was a quiet cute steakhouse. The service was very good & the food was amazing. They had main entrees for people wanting something with all the fixings, but also had the cuts of steak if you want to go that route. I cannot wait to come back to Flintcreek.

This was our fourth visit, and the most outstanding so far. The four of us all agreed that every single thing we tried was delicious. Standouts were the endive salad, spicy eggplant, boar shoulder, and lamb t-bone chops. Plus a super-flavorful and filling vegetarian pasta dish.

We got good advice on wine and friendly and professional service. I highly recommend this restaurant
