Description: John Howie Steak - a downtown Bellevue favorite. Located in the Bravern near 405 (freeway) off of 8th Ave. A great happy hour with a near famous cheeseburger, bar and lounge open till 11pm or midnight. Fine dining in the dining room. Lunch is quite reasonable ($12-$15 entreees) and delicious. Premium steakhouse for lunch meetings, dates or of course any occasion for dinner. Private dining rooms available as well. Catering available. A fine dining restaurant with more casual options for lunch, happy hour, the bar and lounge.

“Happy Hour Hamburger Heaven”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

Go for the burger, split it (its large enough) with another carnivore and wash down with a cold draft. Burp. Worth doing. Trust me. Just do it.

“"Maybe the best Filet ever....."”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Wonderful service by the entire staff, second to none. The Australian Waygu Filet was easily to best I've ever encountered. The sides were extremely well prepared and with sizable portions. I would highly recommend this restaurant for entertaining guests. You will not be disappointed.

“Great ambience and service”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Love this place for special occasions. It is pricey but also really good. All the waiters are super nice and helpful, giving their recommendations without being pushy. The wine list is really good and the steaks are superb. A must.

“Five Star Service”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

The staff at John Howie's is eager and ready to provide with great service. From the front door to the table and on to the meal, you are given 5-star attention. The steaks and sides are very good and the dessert we were given as a Happy Birthday treat was yummy!
This is a nice special occasion restaurant and it was very busy on a warm Saturday night in
August.

“The MUST”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

The best stake in the Bellevue area. Great steak, great service, wonderful atmosphere. Food worth every penny. One odd thing is they serve wine in 2 oz size, so when they bring you huge goblet with drippings of wine on the bottom it kind of makes you feel insulted, so I just went for scotch. Waiters are polite and very invisible in a great way. So we had great dinner and then kame back for lunch. Great burgers, try their peas and mushrooms.
