Golden Beetle

Golden Beetle is rooted in the spices and flavors of the Mediterranean. Our Chef and owner Maria Hines was a 2009 James Beard Award winner for best Chef Northwest. Maria has recently been bestowed with the honor of being a semi-finalist for the James Beard 2013 most outstanding chef. Maria draws upon the cultures of Turkey, Greece, Lebanon, Israel, Egypt and others to present the Northwest’s best organic and seasonal ingredients from local farmers and foragers. Golden Beetle is the third restaurant in the country to receive Oregon Tilth’s esteemed organic certification. We invite you to enjoy exceptional craft cocktails and exquisite, Mediterranean food prepared with a sustainable conscience.

"The standard fare (falafel, humus, spanakopita) was not at all "standard". Tasty twists made it all very special. The lamb meatballs were truly amazing. Service was a tiny bit off; the waitress - though very nice - kept walking away before we were done speaking or ordering (e.g. took MY drink order but walked away before my table partner could say what she wanted - this happened a few times).
We enjoyed the dessert donuts, but they were extremely pricey for what you get: 5-6 small donut holes with a honey sauce for $8. They need to lower the price by two dollars OR give a few more (they're just tiny balls of fried dough!).
Despite these little annoyances, the dinner was fabulous and I can't wait to go back!

"I find it incredibly poor taste when one makes a reservation for one and a restaurant insists on seating you in the bar. Even worse when there are only TWO other people in the entire restaurant and there are plenty of free tables for two not in the bar.
Restaurant advertised on Seattle Restaurant Week a lunch menu, so I booked a reservation accordingly only to arrive and discover 1) they weren't participate in Restaurant Week and 2) even though it was afternoon they were serving breakfast. Had it actually been a lunch menu, I might have stayed despite their deceptive advertising, but for the price I could get a far better breakfast elsewhere in Ballard instead. Gladly spent my money elsewhere.
Won't be returning and guessing from the number of restaurant goers, not many are."

"I have been to Golden Beetle over 12 times in the last year. I dine here at least once a month or every other month. I love the staff (especially Chris the bartender!) and the food is always consistent. The ahi crostini is one of my favorites, though it can be a bit salty. The harissa fries are the best!"

"The vibe, food, and friendliness of staff make this the place I choose to go on the now more rare occasions when I bother to go out to dinner at all. I highly recommend. It's a hidden Ballard gem, in a way..."

"Usually I don't complain but I wanted to share this with the owner Maria!!
My favorite niece from San Francisco was visiting Seattle on her bridal shower tour!
I picked one of Maria Hines restaurant to start her day perfect but I was very disappointed with the food!
Food was tasteless, way too much potatoes and the spiced pancakes were bitter!
I felt so bad/awful!!
But our server was great!!!"

"Casual yet Chic. Great location. Awesome craft cocktails. Excellent variety in Menu. I had the seafood risotto and it was the perfect portion. I rarely follow up with dessert but could not pass on the dessert menu at Golden Beetle!"

"Underwhelming food, too many ingredients were the same throughout the meal & on the menu. Service was not really an importance, no sense of hospitality. Just an order taker."
