A busy Friday lunch crowd of locals, business casual and a brief case or two. Food was excellent as was the service. Exactly what you would expect from an establishment catering to the business world. Hamburger on a brioche bun and French fries dusted with Parmesan cheese was everything I was wanting.... next stop would be a taste of chocolate... More

Oysters were good. The rest of the meal was maybe three stars but the waiter was horrible! Haughty, obsequiously condescending, and verbose were the hallmarks of our experience with the waiter.

Went by myself to have a early dinner. Jeremiah and Jeanine at the bar were providing excellent service. Food was excellent and good value. This is a must stop for everyone who visits Seattle!

If you are the average tourist who goes to Pike Place Market when in Seattle take the time to walk down 2nd Ave towards the 1200 block and you'll come to this great restaurant. It is a classic looking, NYC, place with booths and tables, as well as seating for singles around the cooking area. But more important is the... More

This was our second visit to Brooklyn Seafood and they did'nt disappoint. I had the small,plate Lobster Ravioli and it was delicious as we're the Crab Cakes. Our kids had the Noodles and Ceaser Salad. Washington wines were fairly priced as were the meals. One suggestion might be to add a few more kids items rather that Noodles and Cheese... More

I ordered a selection of the oysters, so delicious! If you sit at the bar, you get see them shucked right in front of you. I also had the creme brulee, it had a nice sugar crust. Plus the custard was slightly chilled so it was a nice contrast. They have a good selection of liquors and the bartenders have... More

We went there for lunch and add some of their oysters, beer, dessert and more... Sat at the bar and received excellent service and advice from our bartender. Oysters were great, wine and beer suggestions from bartender were excellent and not biased by price. Had a fantastic espresso too. Would visit again, especially for trying the bouillabaisse (for some strange... More

The food was good, the staff was nice, but a little disorganized. The atmosphere was nice. You could go here for a business dinner or a date night.

I unexpectedly found myself in downtown Seattle for work on a slow Monday night. My minister in New York moved to Seattle 8 months ago and he was able to join me for dinner. I wanted to take him somewhere special, so we could have a very nice one on one evening together. So, I began searching through TripAdviser in... More
