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

Got the 42 day custom aged ribeye. Would recommend it to anyone - top notch. The fried bacon is excellent too (habanero shrimp just so-so). The wedge salad is a full meal by itself. Drinks and service are good. The big downside here is expect to need a home equity loan to pay for your meal. The bill for 2... More

This steak house is incredible, the staff from the hostess to our waiter were amazing, our food was delicious and the steaks we had were the best either of us have ever ate. Our waiter was amazing and attentive but not over the top & the drinks were great too.

Stopped by in Bellevue to see my relatives and they took me to the John Howie's.... I live in Frankfurt and know quite a few good steak places there - the John Howie definitely can compete. We liked the warm, dark atmosphere, the friendly service and the great choice of wines. All beef choices on the table have been 'to... More

Normally when visiting Bellevue we always went to the Steakhouse on Top of the Hyatt, as they also serve very good steaks. This time we visited John Howie to try out their Jucy Lucy Burger, but discovered that they only serve it on the Lunch Menu, not for Dinner. So we quickly decided for a 46 days aged Rib Eye,...
