Great steaks and ambience

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

The price reflects the quality. We don't typically spend a lot on restaurants, but this was a special occasion. We could find no fault in the waitstaff, atmosphere, or our meal.

given the money spent, I don't remember anything there. The stake was okay but not great. The user experience is fine but not great.

The best Happy Hour food if you are a foodie. It is not inexpensive but worth it because there is a bit of a price cut during Happy Hour.

My husband was kind enough to take me to John Howie for a milestone birthday, as the prices are not for the faint of heart. I could only justify it for a special occasion. I wanted to try their Wagyu Beef. Upon being seated our server, Ran, promptly asked if there were any food allergies or sensitivities. I was very... More

In my opinion, this restaurant is over rated. The food was quite good, but very expensive. I suppose you are paying for good service, which they have, and atmosphere, but the steak was similar to steaks I have had at other restaurants.

John Howie steak offers an impeccable assortment of succulent steaks to satisfy any craving as long as you are willing to pay for it. We've eaten numerous John Howie dinners and have always had an excellent meal. The meal always kicks off on a high note with a delicious amuse bouche prepared daily by the chef. One of my all...

I selected this restaurant for a dinner meeting with a business prospect based on its reputation and high rating. The service was outstanding from the very first call until we left the restaurant completely satisfied that we had one of the finest meals available, served in a beautiful dining room with excellent service. We had medium rare filets, split a... More
