Brunswick & Hunt Ratings and Reviews

We usually have wonderful experiences at Brunswick & Hunt. We came on Valentine's Day and had one of the last reservations at 9:45 since we had a wine class at The Pantry prior. We just felt a little rushed. The food, which is usually phenomenal, was slightly missing the mark. Nothing terrible, but it wasn't a truly fantastic meal. Hopefully they were just having an off night. Still, a very charming neighborhood restaurant with an innovative local menu. Lots of veggie options .

Simply put, loved it! Our server Avery was top notch.. descriptive, helpful and attentive. The food was delicious. We had the cauliflower, steak with frites and the lamb. Will definitely go back to this gem and want to try the brunch next time! Definitely recommended.

We had a quick dinner with another couple before heading to the symphony. The food was excellent. Our friends had not dined with Brunswick and Hunt before. We suggested they try the fried chicken which is one of their signature dishes. They loved it. We've eaten at Brunswick and Hunt several times now over the last few years and have always come away satisfied.

Brunswick and Hunt has great decor and great food! Host and Waitstaff were great. They have a nice selection of beer taps, good cocktails, as well as a nice selection of wine. The prices are a bit steep, but the portions were good and the food taste great! The Cooks did a fantastic job! Especially considering we had two people in our group with major dietary restrictions. Great experience!

I wanted to like this restaurant more. Like I wanted to like La La Land more. I was seated, then ignored for about five minutes. Wait person did seem to make up for it after that. Music is too loud and so disconcertingly unconducive to fine dining, or any other dining for that matter. My frittata and potatoes were delicious but my husbands dutch baby was cold, he was told it was supposed to be that way. First, that is not a dutch baby, looked for like a small folded over crepe which had a cold compote mixed in it. Husband was very disappointed but they graciously remade the "dutch baby" without the cold compote and comped us for it. Don't know if we will be back.

We stumbled on this great little place almost 2 years ago, as my other half and I were doing a lot of dining out and first dates at different places. The very first time we dined there, we ate at the Chef's counter, and were served by Rachel. They've always had superb cheese and charcuterie selections, and don't worry - if you don't know all of the names; they do a fantastic job pairing your tastes with the selections.
Probably the hardest thing about going to Brunswick & Hunt is not ordering too much. There are so many things that look delicious, and even trying to share things family style - we always end up with things to take home.
We had relatives in town this week; so, thought we would take them to one of our favorite places, we also just bought a new home closer to the restaurant, and recently got married - so, many reasons to celebrate!
We walked in and we're promptly sat at our table, and much to our surprise our server was Rachel. She had left about 6 months ago for another opportunity; but, how serendipitous to have her be our server - filling in for someone on vacation. You can always tell a good establishment by their staff and loyalty.
We started with the skillet cornbread with honey butter (not to be missed); then cheese & charcuterie and a nice bottle of wine, followed by some Fritters & Proscuttio, then onto Lamb Dhank & Fried Chicken (another item not to be missed), accompanied with Brussels Sprouts (fantastic), and another Califower (equally yummy) dish.
As you might imagine, we had to skip over dessert - and had left-overs. Can't recommend it enough!

Almost froze to death in this restaurant!! It took away from the entire dining experience. The waiter was great and enthusiastically recommended our choices which were good but not great. This restaurant missed the mark in our opinion.

This place is incredible. The service is always very friendly, helping and on point. The ambience is superb for a date or small group. And the food is absolutely incredible! My husband and I have gone several times and our food is stellar no matter what we order. And they always make a fun mocktail for me with ginger beer! We always find street parking nearby as well since it's not in the heart of Ballard. I highly recommend!!!

Excellent service: welcoming, gracious, helpful, seamless. DELICIOUS food -- every bite was great, and thoughtfully prepared. Had theatre tickets so we didn't have time for dessert, but will definitely be back for that. Brunch menu also looked great.

This place is wonderful. Only giving this 4 stars because I'm incredibly stingy with my 5's. The atmosphere is upscale but relaxed, food is incredible, bar is great, and the service friendly and personal. This is the kind of neighborhood place where it's easy to become a regular.
Highlights for me are the biscuits and the Vikings Blood Bloody Mary variant on the brunch menu. They're great at classic cocktails and have the kind of inventive bartenders who make tasty inventive signature/seasonal cocktails. If you like hot drinks, try the Anne Bonny and the St. Bernard before they drop off the menu.
They can get full, so it's worth making a reservation for more than two people during peak times.

We went to Brunswick and Hunt to treat good friends to a dinner out on New Years Eve, and had a really great time! The strengths of the place were the food (we really liked the diversity of the menu, which included several terrific shared vegetable plates in addition to the entrees and appetizers), the service (our waiter was absolutely great...a perfect combination of attentiveness, conversation, humor, and 'non-rushed' service) and the very funky, interesting space that the restaurant inhabits. We plan to return for sure!
P.S. Very nice wine list with great bottles for a very reasonable tariff.

I went here for brunch and loved it. I wanted to take my mother for a pre holiday dinner and the service was extremely slow. We ordered and it took forever for the food to arrive, when it did it was actually cold. Cold. Not room temp- cold. I complained to the staff, their response was to want to take my food back away to re-fire it. No thanks I already waited too long to get it. They did not take anything off my check or make it ok in anyway.
The price here is not cheap, unforgivable to me when it's $32 for a sirloin and everything is cold make it ok..... offer a free dessert or take my appetizer off the bill. Nothing was done.
Won't risk it again

This was a great neighborhood find! I am always happy to find a great place a bit off the beaten track. The ambiance and service were impeccable. The pacing was perfect. Our server was very amiable and knowledgable about the menu (and life in general) and we had fun conversing each time he came to the table. The menu is smallish and meat heavy. I had the lamb on the server's recommendation and it was a bit overcooked from my medium-rare request. This made it a bit dry. But everyone else's dishes were great. The food wasn't super inventive, but it was tasty and comforting on a cold, rainy night.

It was our son's birthday and we asked where he would like to celebrate. Brunswick & Hunt was his response. The forecast was snow, it was December 8. During our meal it began to snow which made the evening a bit magical. Upon arrival they welcomed us with smiles and acknowledged our son, sat us in his usual table. Our server was Jones, very attentive, but not to much. We all decided that it would be a good idea to graze. That is our nickname for choosing several items off the menu to share. It was a great idea! Love the chicken. A dessert with birthday candles was delivered at the end of our meal. It was a pleasant surprise and very delicious, enough to share. We highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to enjoying their brunch soon.

B & H ranges between very good and outstanding; on this visit a B+ not an A.
The staff is exceptionally attentive to special needs of its diners. We have dined here on several occasions and have recommended the restaurant to many other, which probably are the best indicators of how we evaluate the restaurant. This doesn't mean that the restaurant doesn't have its occasional minor shortcomings, but overall it is very worth dining at.

We went to Brunswick and Hunt to celebrate a birthday. We were a party of 5 and arrived early, and they had our table ready for us. Everything from the ambiance to the dessert were warm, inviting, and made for a very enjoyable and relaxing evening with family. We couldn't believe we had never been before, but will absolutely be back!

Cocktails & appetizers were excellent, particularly the corn fritters. Dinners were great (fried chicken) and good (halibut), and dessert was fabulous (apple crumble). The server was excellent, and we had a great time!

The food at Sunday brunch was good but not fabulous. The atmosphere was very interesting but it was a little loud for conversations. Service was slow but excellent server interaction-he was witty and friendly. The antique wooden bar is fabulous. I will return for another type meal and see how it goes.

We shared this dining experience with good friends (of 36 years) who were visiting Seattle--we had not seen them in over 8 years. We appreciated the caring service, wonderful atmosphere (great restored bar!), good food and relatively quiet sound level. We had a great evening. Our vegan friend particularly enjoyed the selections which were available to her.

Great place for good food and conversation. Cocktail w/bourbon, maraschino and absinthe was great. Cornbread was good, though not the best ever. Carrots and poached shrimp were tasty, though needed more chili and salt, respectively. Burger was high-quality, but a bit overpriced for what it was. Plum clafoutis was well made. Overall, a very enjoyable evening with good service.

Excellent service and food on Saturday night. The cocktails were very interesting and excellent. Although intimate and open beam design the noise level was not too loud. Bar and art were gorgeous as well. Fun place and Jones took great care of us all night.

Had an amazing experience at Brunswick & Hunt! Service was exceptional and the staff was very knowledgeable about their food and made the entire experience so awesome. The charcuterie board was one of our favorites we have tried. Will definitely be going back again.
