Terrific HH with excellent cocktails and atmosphere, well timed service. The HH deep fried bacon and maple dipping syrup takes one to a new dimension.

This is my favorite upscale place to go for a special lunch. The variety is from hamburgers to gourmet items. The atmosphere is quiet and elegant.. They serve a unique variety of breads--all yummy. The service is excellent but not intrusive. I enjoy the fact that you can get "regular " food but made with the best ingredients. Dinner is... More

John Howie is an elegant and great steakhouse. I can write a very extensive review about it, but I'll rather focus on what makes it different and unique. John Howie is a signature steakhouse exclusive to the Seattle area. This what I like the most. Whenever I have people visiting from other cities or abroad I like to take them... More

This place is special, i normally don't eat steak out because I can cook it home much better than most restaurants. John Howie is different, they know how to cook beef to perfection and they have top quality cuts. USDA prime and WAGYU just to get started. Try the couples Monster Rib Eye special! Happy hour menu in the bar... More

JHS is our "go to" restaurant for special occasions or when "only the best" will do! Everything about this place is outstanding! The decor, the selection, the service and of course the food, I truly believe this is the finest overall restaurant in the Seattle/Tacoma/Bellevue area. I have been there numerous times and we have never had anything but an... More

I would say this is a great place for a nice steak dinner. The food was excellent and the service was average. I believe that Daniel's Broiler and El Gaucho are much better in all areas. There really is nothing memorable to say. The filet I had was very good but my view of I405 was not as good as... More

Pros: Service is top-notch, great wine list from affordable to splurge, great cuts of steak. My favorite cut is the rib-eye cap steak which I think has the perfect blend of the flavor and marbling of a full rib-eye with the tenderness of a filet. Happy Hour is also great. Free validated parking. Cons: Appetizers are a bit of meh,... More

Super expensive and not tasty at all. Don't waste your money. If you want to try good steak, just go to Daniel's.

Have eaten here twice, both as a couple and with a group of girlfriends. The food is good---great steaks--but the place is noisy and expensive for what you get. I also found the waiters to be kind of pretentious on both occasions. Won't go there again.

John Howie Steak - a downtown Bellevue favorite. Located in the Bravern near 405 (freeway) off of 8th Ave. A great happy hour with a near famous cheeseburger, bar and lounge open till 11pm or midnight. Fine dining in the dining room. Lunch is quite reasonable ($12-$15 entreees) and delicious. Premium steakhouse for lunch meetings, dates or of course any occasion for dinner. Private dining rooms available as well. Catering available. A fine dining restaurant with more casual options for lunch, happy hour, the bar and lounge.
