Great taste and presentation!

The wait staff as very helpful and allowed us to move at our own pace. We sat at the counter and watched the chefs at work. These guys weren't "cooks" they were artists and very fine at their craft. It was fun to watch them work with such attention to detail. As I saw my food prepared it was... read more

Fantastic staff and fantastic oysters. Oh and great drink options. I recommend stopping in, casually eating oysters, and staying awhile.

Loved the drinks and oysters/appies for happy hour. Nice that it was lively but not overly crowded - even on the big game weekend.

We went to dinner there after a day of sightseeing. We sat at the bar overlooking the kitchen --- it was kind of cool, I guess... we were walk-in, and that is what they had available. We ordered break and a couple of steaks. They do charge for the bread (their restaurant, their rules) and while good, not anything super... More

We checked out the reviews for The Brooklyn and the were good, but not great. But we thought we'd give it a try. I ordered the lamb shank and my wife ordered the King salmon. Wow! Half way through our meal we looked at each other and almost in unison said "This is the best meal I've ever had." The... More

This was the second of two seafood restaurants we tried in Seattle. The menu here was quite limited with very few actual seafood choices. It is really primarily an oyster bar. we were a bit disappointed in the service. It was OK, but we ordered an appetizer that never came.

Food and service were great and the drinks were not too bad either. I guess I needed 33 more characters.

A bit pricey for what it was. Dinner menu was a bit more limited than I hoped for but they had a good wine list. We hhad steak and fish (ling) and although it was well prepared it didnt wow me. Would go again though.

We were very fortunate to have Liesel as our waitress! She was friendly, knowledgable, and efficient! The oyster sampler was fabulous. Her recommendations were great! Crab cake and clam chowder were wonderful. The scallops were beyond decadent.... No dessert necessary.
