The crispy trotter was phenomenal! Also loved the wagyu hangar steak. Food was flavorful, steak was done exactly as requested. Restaurant was comfortable. Bartender has a wide variety of gin.

We celebrated a birthday at this restaurant. Our waitress was friendly and it made dining an extra pleasure. Our cocktails were wonderful as was our meal. The restaurant is a bit pricey so I would definitely say it is for special occasions. The seating is extremely comfortable and the decor is modern.

Warm, professional service. Beautiful presentation. Good selection on the menu of interesting foods. All around a nice experience. You do pay a bit more to eat here, but you get what you pay for.

We got off to a bad start here when we ordered starters and main course, and they both came together. When we complained the waiter said 'I thought you wanted them together.' We told him we had said no such thing. But he was just an incompetent waiter who we could not find at the end of the meal, and... More

This restaurant is absolutely amazing. The staff was super helpful and very nice. The food was delicious. Wines were great and served properly. It was not very expensive, dinner for two with starter, entree, dessert and wines was less than $200. We had one of the best dinners ever at this place.

This new location is a nice up grade to the old place. Parking is still an issue but seems slightly better. Parking is bad anywhere on CH. The bar, Biter and Raw is up stairs and is really nice. We enjoyed a happy hour beverage up there then went down for dinner. While small plates continue to be the rage,... More

My partner and I dined last night at Lark Restaurant, and we kept exclaiming things like "memorable!" and "best I've ever had!" She ate the halibut with fried baby artichoke, which she described as "ethereal" and I (vegetarian) had the potato gnocchi with morels and fava beans. To start, we shared the spring salad, which was lovely, but the half... More

Everything was fantastic at Lark from the service to each bite of food. The steak tartare was on par with my favorite at walrus and carpenter. The Hamachi Crudo was amazing. The octopus was the best I have had. Overall a great night at one of my now favorite restaurants in Seattle.

Went for niece's 30th B day celeb. Salads were lovely and great fish entrees. Pleasant and innovative/attractive space, nice open and very light. Good wine selection and good desserts.

Tricky parking, but that is Capitol Hill. Don't let that dissuade you from going to Lark. It's one of the very best restaurants in the city. Interesting and well prepared food with a super professional wait staff. At the same time, totally unpretentious and welcoming.
