This new version of Lark, located off Madison, just north if the IHOP, is outstanding. The design of the restaurant is lovely. Coming in from the dark and rain, it was warm, nicely lit, lovely, and sparkling. The booths (although a little tight in leg room) provide great acoustics for good conversation. The wait staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The... More

Very disappointing. Loved the old Lark. The welcome and greeting at the new Lark was warm and welcoming. Our server was terrific.The new location looked great. But then the food. The liver appetizer was large but insipid and tasteless. I had to hunt and peck for the meager pieces of cheese in my salad. The pork belly as a main... More

WE had dinner last night at the new location of our Favorite restaurant, Lark. Their new location is off Madison behind the IHop. The bar is slick and clean the dining room is quiet and well layer out so you are not on top of the next guest. There is a parking garage across the alley, enter on Broadway next... More

Chef Johnathan Sundstrom just re-opened Lark at its new location at 926 12th Ave, Seattle, WA 98122. Continuing his excellent cuisine of farm-to-table meals, the restaurant doesn't disappoint. We had a dozen fresh local oysters at Bitter/Raw, the new bar upstairs that also features an awesome charcuterie assortment freshly sliced barside, with procecco. We then headed downstairs into the high... More

What a delightful local restaurant. I was recommended to Lark by a recent transplant from San Francisco, as a great local place with locally sourced ingredients and a real sense of season. We were not disappointed. The care that was apparent as soon as we walked in the door carried throughout the meal. The service and the decor are understated... More

We loved Lark. Not a great place, just defonitely a good one wirh reasonable prices ($50 per person). Their system work as follows: out of a relatively rich list, you pick whatever small plates you like, and they decide what should be yhe order of arrival. We were a party of four, ordered 7-8 plates + 3 types of cheese... More

We love Lark. We love the attention to detail, both with the food and the service. Truth be told, we are a fussy couple with varying tastes and a number of food allergies - generally a chef's worst nightmare. In this case, however, we felt like royalty rather than a pain in the rear. We shared green beans and mushrooms,... More

We walked up here from Pikes Market and it was well worth the walk. No rush dinner, with an appetizer of cheeses, great wine by the glass, and very good food. Even though they call the dinners "smal plates" they were very well sized. Excellent and friendly wait staff. Varied menu with something for just about everyone. I would defintely... More

I wanted to try out Lark while visiting Seattle, because it seemed liked a nice intimate place for dinner. I think we definitely chose well. For the two of us we ordered 5 different items for dinner. This turned out to be more than enough food. We had the green beans with cherry tomatoes and bacon , and it was... More

the food dishes was perfect to order several and share among the 3 of us. But doesn't give you more than a bite or two of each. We ordered as we went. Food was the best of the 6 restaurants we ate at, but you have to appreciate the great preparations and small portions.
