Simply wonderful! Their waygu steak tartare is the most delicious thing I have ever eaten. Beautifully balanced cocktails and a great wine list. I love the seasonal menu changes. Worth every single penny and then some.

We went with a party of 8 people and had a very good dinner, good service and a good time. One person's dinner came out 10 minutes later than everyone else which slightly spoiled the experience. People liked the char, I liked the faro and the burrata salad. The wine list was sufficient to find something good to drink. But... More

The establishment is a little hard to find in the dark but well worth it. The menu changes with availability however we had the butternut squash soup, sunchoke chips, oysters, and the Farro dish. We had the apple tart for dessert. All were outstanding. The menu contains many unique dining items. Our waitstaff was attentive and professional.

The atmosphere here is lovely. The service is really good. The wine selection is limited but decent. However the food needs improvement. Raw bar platter is messy and too much work's crabs aren't pre cracked. Prawns require peeling. We had sides that were not edible due to over cooking. Some dishes were over seasoned. It wasn't just one thing, so... More

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
