I want to say this is the best steak house in Bellevue and Seattle area, high price is worth every bit because the food is amazing and the service is above beyond my pass experience. Our waiter was very knowledgeable of the menu. He made my son's birthday dinner the best one ever so my boy asks for John Howie... More

We enjoyed happy hour on a Saturday. The service was good. There's a nice selection of food on the happy hour menu; and it tastes delicious. Our drinks were very good.

It is a beautiful space and the lighting produced a cozy ambiance even though the room was rather full. We ordered the following: starter- bacon we shared the... More

Two for dinner. Interior what you would expect from a really high end place. Substantial wine list with well versed sommelier. The Australian wagyu was excellent and tasty as expected - be careful can be bit rich if you not used to such styles of food. It is certainly a place for when you want to push the boat some... More

Came here for my girlfriends birthday. I made the reservation online and mentioned that it was a special occasion for my SO. Once we arrived we were greeted by the hostess and our waiter was super friendly. Ordered the mashed potatoes with lobster, a lobster tail and the grilled salmon. When ordering coffee, a creme brulee came as a courtesy... More

Husband and I saw an ad while on the airplane for John Howie and were a little skeptical. We have to say it was one of our top 10 dining experiences. We had the 4 filet combinations and it was excellent. Also enjoyed a cup of Kopi Luwak and it was excellent as well. Wish there were more locations but... More

Great happy hour. You must try the tempura bacon served with maple syrup ponzu sauce. Definitely food crack. We also had the shrimp in habanero sauce, the deviled eggs and the deep fried Brussel sprouts, all winner. Two Pokemon stops near by too. I need to go back to try the rest of the menu!

....That has left a standing impression on me. The happy burger is the best burger I have ever had anywhere. Other restaurants that have left the same impression was a sea food restaurant in Cabo Mexico and a French restaurant in St Martin.

Try the amazing food of John Howie in smaller portions (so you can try more) and for a great price. We went with good friends and we all loved the the deviled eggs with truffled bacon and also the Brussels sprouts. Seven Flavor Prime Tenderloin Bites are out of this world good!

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.
