I had high expectations for Lark, but was disappointed by some significant misfires, including a potato hash that was tough and crunchy, and a duck confit that was well cooked but flavorless, served on a bed of dirty rice and crayfish that tasted *very* fishy, and with beans that tasted like they had just come out of an aluminum can....

It was Seattle Restaurant Week and had business guests in from out of town. If we wanted to go anywhere decent we'd need reservations, Thankfully, we got lucky on Opentable with a 5pm reservation. 5 hours later we were still there! 3 for $32 makes Lark pretty popular but the menu has so much to offer. We started with the... More

Truffle flavored chips, cornish hen stuffed with foie gras, quincy tart. This food forward restaurant is not easy to find, but it is very much worth it. Located on a side street near Seattle University (one block away), this is every bit as good as previous reviews have made it out to be. The setting is a modern, sleek setting.... More

A great meal in a restaurant you can get a reservation at the last minute. Waitress service left a little to be desired, but the food made up for any inconvenience. Excellent accompaniments and spot-on preparation made our meal here a delight. We will return.

Visiting Lark for dinner comes with much anticipation based upon TripAdvisor and other reviews. I only wish it had lived up to all of the hype. The food tastes are extraordinary -- let's be clear. No way I give this restaurant a "Very Good" rating if the kitchen is flawed in any way. It's not. The service, while attempting to... More

Admittedly, I haven't eaten at every Seattle restaurant but I did a lot of dining at recommended eateries during my last visit; and hands down, this was my favorite spot. First off, it's a beautiful, comfortable re-purposed industrial space that is elegant yet simple. LInen tablecloths & banquette booths help absorb sound - a huge plus in my book. Service... More

First night in SEattle, family dinner. Great service, extensive interesting menu. Bread (had to pay for it) was delicious. YOU MUST TRY THE SKIRT STEAK. It was amazing. Two from our party ordered it and although everyone liked their dishes, the steak was the winner by far.

The four of us went for dinner last night at Lark. All was so perfect as expected from personal recommendations. We started with a variety of oysters for appetizers along with our tasty cocktails, so delicious. Then onto our wine choice a nice chardonnay from Domaine Drouhin from Oregon. For entrees we chose the Quail, Pork Chop, Lasagna and Pasta... More

Made a reservation here after a recommendation. Had a superb wedding anniversary dinner. Great oysters, main course, desert and of course Cosmo's and Malbec. Would highly recommend.

Lark's food is pretty and well presented. Unfortunately, it is not as interesting tasting as it looks. The tuna crudo was somewhat bland, which was a common theme. Excellent house made bread and delicious lard butter. The interior space is very nice, hip and inviting. While disappointed in the dishes we had, would try it again.
