A classically inspired cocktail menu, impressive wine offerings (glass and bottle), and house made desserts offered with warmth by a professional staff, invite a leisurely approach to dining.

Brunswick & Hunt Ratings and Reviews

The food was outstanding, the service was impeccable, the right balance of sincerity without too much formality. If you live anywhere in the area, I'd highly recommend you try Brunswick and Hunt for a weekend brunch or dinner any day it's open.

We waited 40 minutes while watching the chef pick up eggs with his bare hands, who had a mustache and beard that was not covered.
The food was ok, nothing spectacular.
The waiter was excellent.
It was so noisy my husband, who is hard of hearing, could not hear me, so we could not talk during lunch.
it is a good place for neighborhood people who drink or have little kids, if they can stand the noise.
There is NO PLACE TO PARK.

I came here for brunch and had an excellent experience. The waiter was very friend, informative and helpful, but not overbearing. The food was excellent, including their oven baked frittatas. The bloody mary was excellent as well, good spice level. I would definitely come back here for brunch and hope to come for dinner as well.

Arrived on Father's Day for Brunch. No one was there to greet us so we stood in the doorway a bit until someone saw us. As a note, another group arrived after us and got tired of waiting so just sat themselves at a table. We overheard them mentioned they had reservations and thought it was weird not to be noticed when they arrived, seated and have to ask for menus.
As this restaurant is not huge we was highly disappointed in the level of service - which was very slow - waited 35 mins for our orders to be taken.
Our egg dishes arrived both over cooked - the waiter did have one of our dishes re-done by the kitchen. Already a long wait by now, my husband decided not to request the same for his meal.
This restaurant has a nice history and beautiful back bar and paintings. However, overall, it was a big disappointment - service was slow and the food was just equally so-so.
Will not be returning anytime soon.

My husband and I split several of the small plates, and they were all delicious. The grilled fava beans were particularly good. The service was very friendly and quick. No issue making some of the dishes vegetarian on request.
Amazing food, fabulous service (thanks Rachel)!
The food was amazing. Literally, everything we had was prepared or cooked to perfection and tasted phenomenal. Our waitress, Rachel, was knowledgeable and attentive. The ambiance was mellow and warm with a large group of friends enjoying cocktails at the bar, a group celebrating a birthday behind us and the two of us out for a rare date night. Seemed like something for everyone.

Really pleased to have discovered this place that we like so much, and so close to home. From the moment we entered the restaurant we were charmed by the ambiance, the staff, and the story of the beautiful bar and its partner painting. My husband loves the cocktails, and I love the wine offerings. We always get the charcuterie and cheese plate, and we especially love the house cured ham and buckwheat crackers. Steak frites are perfect, and the halibut special is melt-in-your-mouth tender. I can't get enough of the asparagus, so perfectly combined with sweet ham, tangy cheese, and lemon zest. The Meyer lemon posset is a unique dessert offering that I particularly love. And on top of it all, we really love the staff. They recognize us when we come in, welcoming us back like old friends. What more could we ask for?
Excellent time for 11 folks
Birthday for me (64th) and 9 others + my wife was very enjoyable experience. Rachel , our server, is top-notch- she was informative , helpful, engaging, and attentive. The first small plates we ordered were excellent; we were in no hurry and never felt to be rushed. Very good bar. Dinners were exceptional, from the Fried Chicken to the Lamb, to the Burger. etc .Nary a clunker. Wow. Everybody had a great time and has voiced it.
Great dining experience.
We have a group of guys that meet up monthly for dinners around Seattle, and this was an excellent choice. Not only was all of the courses incredible, the staff was terrific as well. We had the pomme frites, clams, and the corn bread for appetizers, and they were so good we did a second round. We ordered all of the vegetable sides, and the artichoke hearts were unbelievable. The carrots were good (must like butter), the beets were execellent, and the cauliflower was good but slightly undercooked. Every main that came out was unique to each plate, but were perfectly balanced for the course they were presenting. My recommendations would be the Halibut, fried chicken or the lamb main course. The burger was the best value. Great restaurant, great service. Thanks!
Great neighborhood spot
Awesome service here! We were celebrating a special birthday and the waiter was a doll. He took the time to tell us about the history of the Brunswick and the painting (The Hunt)- and the food was impeccable! He also brought out a complimentary dessert that was a chocolate delight that was out of this world!
I would definitely recommend this place.
Great Neighborhood Restaurant
We had a great dining experience and I will credit a lot of it to our very friendly, waiter Cyler (sounds like a "k"). He even told my husband to come back for his birthday dessert because we had another commitment for dessert that night. Can't wait to go back from brunch some time.

My friend and I dined here on a Saturday night, and were amazed at everything we ordered. Our server was so kind, and attentive, and the food was delicious. I have made Brunswick and Hunt a favorite of mine, and highly recommend it!
So much more than just 'dinner'
We were kindly greeted upon arrival by the host, immediately greeted upon being directed to the bar to wait while our table was set up. Our drinks came promptly and we easily transferred to our table. We were always given clear indication of the wait time for everything - from the table, to the drinks, to the food. We were offered top favorite choices before ordering our food. We were treated with respect and were waited on diligently, yet did not feel at any point that we were interrupted in our own conversations. All in all, it was a wonderful evening and thoroughly enjoyed by all.
Good food but extremely slow service.
I really want this restaurant to succeed. So I am writing this for them as much as for patrons. The food is very good, although a vegetarian entree would be much appreciated. The waitress was friendly but the service was painfully slow. The restaurant wasn't full when we arrived at 630 but everything from the drinks to the meal took forever, at least 30 minutes for our drinks and another 30 minutes at least for dinner. On top of that one of the martinis that should have had sugar on the rim had salt instead. When they brought the replacement it was very salty so we suspect they just changed the glass and poured the already salty drink into the new glass rather than remake it. Cheap. We asked the waitress if they were short servers or cooks and she said no. Had we had another engagement, such as a movie or babysitter to get back to, we would have had to abort the whole thing. If they don't correct this they won't succeed so hopefully they will make the necessary changes. There is too much competition in this town for poor service to survive no matter how good the food is. Keeping my fingers crossed.

An excellent find in Ballard. Innovative food (the meats are excellent, but don't overlook the veggie dishes - the smoked mushrooms are exceptional) that is well prepared, a terrific bar that makes well balanced cocktails, served by people who care about what they're doing. One of our favorite places!
