This was a treat from my husband for my birthday. Such a lovely Restuarant with all the exceptional items one would expect of John Howie. Service was top notch with the greatest attention to detail. I had a wagyu steak (mid price) and oh wow! I seriously tried to eat it slow and savor every bite, but it was gone... More

We parked on the street corner nearby, not realizing there was parking in the same building. We ordered filet mignon, done medium. They were flavorful with fine grain, and comparable or better than I recall at Ringside, Portland or the Metropolitan, Seattle.

My wife and I recently celebrated our Anniversary at John Howie. We were joined by two other couples, one also celebrating an anniversary and the other a birthday! My wife and I chose to have the Chateaubriand for our meal, which was cut tableside for us. It was one of the best cuts of meat we have ever had!! Everyone... More

This is an excellent restaurant. The steaks are really great and tasty. The service was great and the atmosphere was good and had a top restaurant flavor. We had a large round table with 10 people which worked very well. The price is on the high side.

The food here was just OK after all the fan fare I just don't get what's so special much better steak houses in Seattle and Bellevue. The service was awesome but other than that it was disappointing

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....
