Very good food. Wedge salad was a bit light on the lettuce for the price but a nice plate. I had the halibut crusted in potato which was excellent. Friends had filet and ribeye which were both done perfectly.

We were able to snag a last minute reservation here on a Sat night. We sat at the Chef's table overlooking the cooking. The seats were comfortable and private. Both us had the halibut special which was outstanding. The wine list impressive and reasonable. Service absolutely above average. If you're visiting Seattle, this is a must do. My husband had...

Enjoyed a very good meal. Started with a "beer & oysters" sampler. Had four of each thing. The beers had unique flavor sand the oysters melted in your mouth. Of the four of us, two had scallops, one had halibut and the last all tuna. Everyone raved about their meals. Ended with delicious desserts. Dinner was a bit costly, but... More

We are fans of the Brooklyn - especially their "happy hour" (actually two hours). Remarkable list of appetizers and drinks at virtually half price. After a baseball game we stopped by and the bar tender (Anthony) remembered us from one year ago ! Great bartender conversation with his soft Louisiana accent and politeness. The food = the best....we ordered four... More

We have visited Seattle quite a few times, and we keep coming back to the Brooklyn. On this Seattle visit, we made an effort to try clam chowder at every restaurant we ate at. The Brooklyn won the unofficial award from us; it had truffle oil which put it over the top, with the best flavor. Also excellent this time,... More

My friends and I were visiting Seattle and had a progressive dinner. We started here and let me tell you the drinks and oysters were fab. The guys who were shucking were great - they were very charming and very knowledgeable. Very fun experience, can't wait to go back and try the rest of the place. I want to sit... More

What a terrific place, the shucker was great, the choices of oysters was long, the beer was good and local.. I wish we had the time to drop back in there for dinner, it is a fairly elegant place with "Happy Hour" oysters and a huge list of local oysters

We chose the Brooklyn because it was close to The Benaroya Hall for a concert we were attending. The restaurant is beautiful, the staff were warm and welcoming. We had the Caprese (which the balsamic was amazing), the scallops were to die for, cooked perfectly and had many flavors added to it! Its a little pricey but would recommend going... More
