Loved Lark. High end feel but laid back atmosphere. The staff was friendly and most eager to meet your every request. They use local producers for most of their food.

The space is inviting and comfortable. We had four diners. The cocktail menu has some interesting choices, and the wine list, while not extensive, covers all the bases from a few nice by-the-glass offerings up to special occasion bottles. The charcuterie board had good variety and was enough for four to share. The entrees, while on the small side, were... More

I met friends - all of us from out-of-town - for an evening at this place that came highly recommended. We ordered every choice to share and it was all terrific - cocktails, oysters, mussels, burrata, scallops, the wine selection, deserts - all of it. It will be tough going back - there's more I want to try - but... More

We liked everything about this restaurant. The atmosphere was great -- a place that instantly makes you happy, with high ceilings, nice lighting, and a reasonable noise level. The food is outstanding, especially the oysters, scallops, and duck confit. The waiter was knowledgeable, personable, and attentive, without being overbearing. Finally, the prices are reasonable for the quality of the food... More

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
