Delectable food, great ambiance and service for our 25th anniversary!

Prompt, knowledgable and personable staff. Nice location. Food to die for. A bit expensive, but perfect for a special occasion or just to treat yourself to great food.

This was my first visit to John Howie and I have to say I was expecting more for the price. We were able to get out for not too much over $200 for two with tip including 1 glass of wine and two deserts. That is probably middle of the road for the prices here. I ordered prime rib. I... More

The service here is great, quick and attentive. However, the prices are top-notch steakhouse quality but the food in general is mid-range.

Everything was a pleasure to eat. We ultimately urge you to try this awesome restaurant which deserves its rating in TripAdvisor. Beware it... More

This was our first visit to John Howie Steak restaurant. We went there to celebrate our son's birthday and we're not disappointed. Our server Michael was excellent, very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. Michael brought out tiny little cups of salmon bisque for us and wow was it excellent, I should have asked if they sold that by the... More

Celebrated a friend's birthday at John Howie. I made areservation in advance since we had 7 people for dinner. The service and ages steaks were great, but the desserts (key lime pie and carrot cake) were not that good.

My wife and I always try to visit when in Bellevue. We use OpenTable for reservations as this place can fill up quickly. High end service with great steaks. You can really treat yourself with either the American, Australia, or Japanese Waygu streaks. Leave room on you credit card cause the steaks are not cheap but you will remember it.... More

We ate at John Howie's of Bellevue for the first time in July for our wedding anniversary. The dinner was outstanding, the wilted spinach salad for two prepared at the table was subtle and yet flavorful. The Wagyu beef was awesome. We ate the Idaho raised version which we think was just right marbling. The wine choices which the wine... More
