I have been at the Lark a few times and they always surprised us with amazing food choices and excellent service. This restaurant is located in the heard of Capitol Hill and shows a very nice ambient. I would put this restaurant into my top ten.

We had an 830 reservation Friday and were greeted by a gruff hostess when we arrived at 820 pointing out immediately that we were early and the table would be ready on time. I had simply walked in the door and given my name. We were in no hurry and happily went to the bar. There was really no need... More

A neighborhood "foodies" delight with relaxing ambiance, excellent service, and creative preparation of dishes. Portions are perfect for sharing which adds to the pleasure of being able to sample more! It's impossible to recommend any particular dish as the menu changes so sharing is best approach to make most of the dining at Lark.

Wonderful architectural setting, high ceilings and wonderful natural light. The menu is wonderful in terms of great fish, vegetables and meat dishes. Fun wine list and great recommendations. We had an excellent server, who recommended a great Pinot Noir. Our food was so fresh with wonderful simple yet complex flavors

So, I am treating family and friends to a night out, someone suggested Lark, supposed to have great small plates, lots of interesting flavours, so on. So after securing a reservation for ten, we did the carpool thing and all arrived at this small Capital Hill Restaurant. Now I am not big on trendy, so right off, I'm uncomfortable with... More

Your dining experience awaits you! We live in the neighborhood and this is a class act. The food was prepared to perfection and the service is excellent. We started with small plates, the pork rillettes and ahi, followed by the hanger steak and pork chop. For desert we ordered the biscuit short cake and malt ice cream. The food was... More

Was really excited to try this restaurant and I have to say I was disappointed. Food was fresh and seasoned well but can't say the flavors were on point. Beautiful presentation though.

Long day in Seattle and early dinner before long ride home. Lark beckoned because of the interesting, ever-changing menu. This was a great meal. Service and ambience is always important and Lark is just right on both accounts. We shared small plate starters and enjoyed delicious potato and serrano ham croquets and house-made burrata that was served with excellent balsamic... More

first impression service staff are so snooty, came across as if we were there for them. food was ok, not as good I was expecting, at times a little being to over imaginative, pork belly was chewy and had far to much fat, clams were to salty. would not recommend to anyone

I couldn't understand why this place was so quiet on a Friday night but then I heard they just moved locations. While get yourself there because the food is unique and delicious! Our favorites were a starter of green chickpeas (order it!),followed by the semolina gnocchi and duck confit. Fresh flavors, local produce, and share plates so you can try... More
