Brunswick & Hunt Ratings and Reviews
This was our first time to Brunswick & Hunt, love the hardwood floors! Dani, our server was outstanding-- courteous , efficient, and very informative with the wine list and menu. Everyones’ meal was superb, from the delicatta arugula salad to the fried chicken and cornbread, to the sautéed wild mushrooms, to the wild caught sturgeon (yes, sturgeon!). We found our new favorite locally grown farm-to-table restaurant. Thank you, Brunswick & Hunt, We look forward to the next time!
Our favorite restaurant for the past 3 years. We came for a company Christmas Party Dinner. The food was great! The wait staff was very informative, knowledgeable, and helpful! Highly recommend. Favorite place....and I hate driving into Seattle....but it's worth it.
The atmosphere was great - very comfortable and not too loud. The service was excellent and the food was fabulous. We took a friend who was in town on business for the week, who had eaten out every night at a different place. He said this place would have to be at the top of his list of favorite places to eat in Seattle. I'd have to agree!
We cannot say enough about this restaurant. Creative use of NW ingredients without being contrived. Comfort food is king here with everything from a hamburger to black cod to fried chicken. Wide array of vegetable sides, a couple of salads and house pate round out the menu. Our friend needed to be total gluten free and servers and kitchen could not have been more accommodating. Wide array of specialty cocktails, but well done classics as well. Service is casual, but very attentive and skilled. The dining room/bar is anchored by an old, gorgeous back bar. Dark walls and subdued lighting makes one feel they are in a dodge somewhere Montana or Wyoming without the big game heads. A neighborhood gem, but we drive 35 minutes to have dinner. One of the best 'under the radar' restaurants in Seattle. Go... you will not be disappointed.
Turned off IMMEDIATELY by the background music- it sounded Satanic! Fire the the person who thought that was "cool".
Then you don't get to charge those prices for beyond mediocre service/attention, and mis-labeled food ( the fried chicken is someone's feeble attempt at Nashville Hot Chicken) that misled a diner who Hates hot chicken. As a result of your now misguided, originally inventive, mission clearly your evaporating clientele is showing up in your numbers- are you listening to anyone but yourselves???
Your place used to be a family members favorite restaurant. Hard to believe.
My husband's and my first time here. Thanks Chinook Book for bringing this restaurant to our attention. We shared a Cauliflower/Brussel Sprout dish as an appetizer and I have to say it's the first time in my life I have liked and wanted to eat cauliflower. I had the steak as my main while my husband had the pork tenderloin. Both were excellent along with the sides. The Apple Betty dessert was perfect to share. YUM! Staff was welcoming, friendly, personable, casual, not pushy. West Seattle drive to Ballard was well worth it! I have already recommended to friends.
My wife and I were very happy with our experience at Brunswick & Hunt. The highlights of our experience were the service and ambience. The meal was a lot of fun in a well-designed space with striking artwork and wood trim work, particularly around the large mirrored bar. The cuisine was a solid four stars, but not five. We started with carrots, beet salad, and winter greens ravioli. The carrots were well-seasoned and fresh, but needed moisture. Our beet salad had some vinegar to offset the natural sweetness of the dish, but the chef's choice of creme fraiche versus, say, goat cheese left the appetizer too sweet and absent a depth and richness it could have had. The ravioli was fantastic - fresh, al dente, wonderful sauce, well-balanced. Anna devoured her ling cod entree and my fried chicken with pickled pepper collard greens was a flavor bomb - fantastic. I was missing a bright element to the chicken entree to give my palette a break. Parking was awfully tough, but that's par for the course in Ballard.
A surprise tucked away that was more delicious and special than I had hoped.
I've already recommended it to friends!
It was my adult daughter's birthday, and we had freshly made (still hot) drop, cinnamon donuts presented as a gift!
The eggs Benedict (with smoked pork) was fabulous...really needs a better adjective.
And the quality standard of food and service stood out above others restaurants ... loved the individual coffee press too. Treat yourself to Sunday Brunch...i will be doing so many more times!
Brunswick and Hunt had been our go-to favorite place while we were living in Ballard. We met up with some old friends there and recommended this place and were sadly very disappointed. The food wasn't as good as it was before. It was cold and the vegetable hash looked like something I could've made (not good). I don't know if the "B" team cook staff was there today or what. The service is normally excellent but our waiter forgot to fill our water often and we ended up waiting for our meal for an hour. It's busy, granted, but I noticed people who came later were served before us. I think our waiter forgot about us. It was disappointing because we had recommended this place to our old friends and were embarrassed it wasn't as good as we had remembered. Also, it's disappointing that it's no longer the great place that we remember.
This is one of our favorite spots. The food is reliable good and creative, and the staff are always friendly. Whether sitting at the bar for cocktails and a nosh or enjoying brunch (the braised pork Benedict is not to be missed), I can highly recommend Brunswick and Hunt.
Been here 5 or 6 times now and it is always a pleasure. I've always had the same waiter, Kyler, and he is always personable and friendly. The menu is small (I think 7 entrees) and I have had the chicken, the halibut and the sirloin and have found them all outstanding. The vibe is neighborhood, friendly. I have recommended it to multiple people. Try it!
If you are lucky enough to get Avery (handsome bald gent) as your server, just take his recommendations on what to eat. You won't regret it. Lovely warm atmosphere. Amazing food. Great cocktails and small select wine list. Beautiful seasonal menu. Really a special place.
Last few times we've been here the service hasn't been as good. Both times we've waited too long after being seated for someone to come over, take a drink order etc.. One time we got up and went to the bar to order our drinks because we felt we'd waited long enough. That should never happen...not sure we'll be back.
This is the second time I've had breakfast/brunch at Brunswick and Hunt. I think the presentation is definitely a cut above, service great and food very nice. We each had a different breakfast item and all were excellent with the exception of the Dutch Baby which was more like a crepe then a dutch baby. However it was tasty ...like a Crêpes confiture with apricot jam inside. It is the typical noisy hard surface atmosphere and gray boring walls you find in most of the new restaurants. The noise level made it difficult to make conversation once the dining room filled up. On the positive they have very nice and warm toned artwork and an antique back bar which give it an inviting ambiance. Overall we all thought it was good and would come back again.
