A recent family dinner visit to this highly thought-of steakhouse was exceptionally disappointing. Our waitress made it abundantly clear she did not like to deal with children (very well behaved and restaurant experienced five and seven year olds), misheard or simply didn't pay attention to what was ordered, brought the wrong things, and didn't pay much attention to any of...

Went there for lunch. Very competitively priced with excellent service and choice. Most folks were well dressed but some were casual and that seemed OK. Dinner is a fair bit more expensive but we'll try it out during our next visit.

There are very few restaurants that can be called elegant dining experiences, and we are lucky in Bellevue to have one of them in John Howie Steakhouse. The dark interior and soft furniture conveys a theme of luxury and the meal does not disappoint. From the very friendly and attentive staff in their crisp uniforms to the flawless presentation of...

This a classy restaurant with awesome staff and awesome food. That being said.. It also brings in the most socially incompetent patrons ever. John Howie's is this classy place with the best waitstaff you will find anywhere. Then, when you are seated the entire meal goes downhill from there. Why? Is it the food? No. Is it the staff? No....

My husband and I went for lunch and found the food to be good. The dessert portions were enormous and my lime pie was impressive in both size and taste. The staff were attentive but very formal. The view... well it was lunch time, so no pretty sunset but a view of the high way. My favorite part about this... More

For great cocktails and steaks in an upscale but comfortable atmosphere, you can count on John Howie. The staff gives excellent recommendations and beautiful service. The bar feels intimate in a good way and the bartenders know what they're doing. This is an expensive restaurant, but the quality of everything will likely exceed your expectations.

We travelled to Bellevue for a wedding and a friend wanted to have a birthday dinner here. They graciously accommodated us in the private dining room waiving the room charge for 12 people. The service was excellent and flexible. We had Caesar salad and I had the salmon prepared perfectly. The waiter made sure to be very specific about the... More

Went for our anniversary. As usual both food and service were outstanding. We love the shared spinach salad, prepared at our table over flame with quail eggs on top.

So disappointed. We have been to JHS many times and consider it our go to restaurant when we have international visitors. We went last night and the experience was awful. We normally love the tempura kurabota bacon. Last night it was all batter and you could hardly discern the bacon. My husband ordered the Australian wagyu medium, it came out... More
