The foie gras and escargot were equally good, but unfortunately not the fries which were quite soggy... So skip... read more

I've been here for wonderful and popular happy hour. I've had the incredible hamburger, mac & cheese and other delectables all of which were great. The venue is small and will have a line to get in if you come at the later happy hour time. I've also had business lunches here. Our recent lunch was amazing. We had a... More

John Howie Steak offers a lot of great steak options: Wagyu, Australian Wagyu and Japanese Wagyu. I tried the Australian Wagyu medium rare and was very pleased. It was tender with incredible flavor. There are a lot of great seafood options for those who don't eat red meat. My wife had the Salmon and really enjoyed it. The sides are... More

The service is amazing and the restaurant is a very good place for romantic dinner and or business dinner. We tried the Waguy beef trio, American, Australian and Japanese.

Great food. Great service. It makes a meal an overall event, not just a place to eat. Everything about John Howie's is well done and welcoming. The food is the best. Dining there is always a pleasure, particularly in the middle of a work day. Their happy hour and dinners are also fantastic. The lunch is not only great, but... More

If you love garlic this is the place for you. My favorite dish is the Farmers Chicken wings. Two people can split a dish. The portions are very big. Not much atmosphere good food. Not expensive! A very small restaurant.

My wife and I have been wanting to go here for quite some time on the recommendation of one of our foodie friends. We made it here on Valentines day. Short and sweet this is the best steak I have ever had in my life. All the food was five star, the service was impeccable and a great atmosphere. The... More

Great food, HORRIBLE service. First of all, I'm convinced this place is a little racist. The back corner had 5 tables. Every table in that corner had mainland asians sitting at it. There were no other asians at other tables in the restaurant. The maître d was by far the highlight of the night. His whole demeanor was negative and... More

My second time in 3 years. We went there - 4 guys after a full day at diverse BOEING facilities. Excellent steaks (Waguyu beef) - very tender and juicy. The salmon was a bit on the dry side and for the price of $38.- the portion was a bit small. Great wine selection. Excellent service. But - in my opinion... More
