We had 3 kids with us and they accommodated us very well. We celebrated birthday and they gave a dessert with a candle free for the birthday girl. My guests were from BC and all enjoyed the food and the atmosphere.

My office recently had a staff birthday lunch here and while we were seated promptly, the order taken quickly(since we were on a tight schedule) and the food served within a decent time, that is where the service ended. The restaurant was not busy and our server was training someone, but after the initial delivery of our food, he never checked on us again!! Next time he came over was to deliver the check. I have several friends who work in the restaurant business and this would never have been acceptable. We didn't even see a manager. While the food was very good, I would be very hesitant to try this restaurant again due to the service.

This was the second time I have gone to Gordon Biersch. The first time was average - about what you expect from a chain restaurant. This last Saturday was the worst service I think I have ever had at a restaurant. They were out of several of the items that we had asked for and unwilling to substitute to make it right. The waiter would mumble and then just walk away not even waiting for our replies to his questions. I don't know if he was new or just having a bad night, but the entire experience was awful. I will not be going back for bad service and mediocre food.

Server was lost. Literally had no idea. Mixed up peoples orders. Forgot to tell us when items weren't available (ordered a burger with avocado specifically, it was served to two of us no avocado and then told avocado was limited in the US so we dont get it). He said we would have a discount but it didn't appear on our check.
Said he could split the check in 2 since there were 11 of us and so we had two people split it rather than all of us and he couldnt figure out how to do that and had to get "manager approval" it took another 20 minutes after waiting for our check for 20 minutes.
Forgot two of our drinks for at least 20 minutes.
Dining experience was over 1 hour 45 minutes and we were late to a concert.
Waters only filled once in that time frame.
Food was mediocre.

Gordon Biersch accommodated our party of 12 and made it a very fun going away lunch for a workmate. This makes a 12 person and a 50 person event I've sent there, and both times the staff, food and service went above and beyond. I will definitely recommend them for small and large groups.

As usual: This is one of my favorite eateries! The service is always gracious and efficient. The food is wonderfully prepared and plated. The beer is the best in town. I can barely wait to go for yet another delicious meal!

Had to get up from our seat to get our server to take our order and the place wasn't busy at all. Steak was salty and rare, not medium, as requested. Asked for 2 waters sans ice and an iced tea. Took about 20 mins to arrive, and only after we asked for them again. When water arrived, had ice in it. Asked for salad with no croutons, arrived with croutons in it. Pasta was decent. In the end, we took the steak home for the dog and split the pasta between us because we didn't feel like having another order messed up. Will not return.

This is the 2nd time we've used Gordon Biersch for a business group meeting and it was a very good experience - we plan on hosting additional events there in the future. They were very accommodating by allowing us to use the banquet room. The room is great - you can close the doors so it's quiet for presentations, etc. and they have a very nice A/V arrangement.

Excellent food, not noisy in the eating area, great service we had a play to go to at the Fifth Ave and a slow walking 82 year old mother that needed extra time to walk to the theater and the young lady was fast and still nice!
We went for a quiet lunch. The food had good choices for everyone. The restaurant itself has a bleak quality so you end up looking at the other diners. The benches are just like Palomino where you end up being bounced up & down a little. Like there's a lot of air in the benches. I was worried the children around us would be very loud but they were not. The Bar was loud and the noise spilled out to the restaurant which was fine but we were with some very quiet people. My mahi mahi had some great sides. It was a nice piece of fish, PERFECTLY done but a lot to eat for lunch (can't believe i'm saying that). Desserts are really nice. The chef is awesome but the servers are pretty young they might need a little bit more training or just more of them. The new thing out there seems to be to hand carry things rather than using a tray. I was always taught to use a tray but maybe that's at a lesser establishment. I wish there was either more of a view or something to look at because you end up waiting and staring a lot. Not sure why. Very good value.
Food was not good
Waiter was in outer space. Food was below subpar. My salmon was so overcooked. I asked for no cheese and I got extra. Waiter didn't come by for 15 minutes after we got our food and by that time I had picked away my cheese.... We won't be back
Unremarkable and over-valued
we haven't been to Gordon Biersch in years, and thought we would give it a try. I was disappointed in the overall experience. Menu selection was mediocre, quality of the food was not great (mostly from preparation - over or under done - but the quality of the cuts were poor as well, the presentation however was quite good). The service was also unremarkable - perhaps they were understaffed, but there were few diners in the restaurant and yet we were often looking for our server. Seattle downtown has numerous options within a short distance of Biersch and for the money, I would recommend trying any of them over this place.
Disappointed member of the party
Sat . night at 6pm GB out of the Chicken Schnitzel - Really? Poor excuse to say Comic Con was in town - plan for it! Server should've let us know at the onset if they were out of menu items. Instead, the order is placed then the server comes back & says they are out of that particular dish - disappointment. Kind of leaves a bad taste. The rest of the party thought the Blue crab & artichoke dip, GB Beer Mushroom Chicken & Housemade Lobster & Shrimp tacos were delicious and would order it again.
Bartenders were a gas!
We stopped in before a concert at The Paramount Theater for dinner and drinks. Their beers were exquisite, and the mixed drinks delightful! The bartenders made it so much fun for us, we decided to stop in again AFTER the concert! This will be a traditional stop before concerts from now on!
Moderately priced for downtown - Good beer
Stopped in about 4:15PM on Sunday after Paramount Theater. Not crowded. Ordered Golden Export and Marzden beers, both $6.25 for .5L and both were very enjoyable. Caesar side salads were okay but not memorable for $3.99 as an add on to an entry. Traditional sausage platter for $17.50 could have been more creative. 3 sausages, all the same type could have had some variety. It would not have killed them to provide more than just a skimpy portion of red cabbage. It was all tasty but could have been a lot more. The big polish at Costco is much better. My wife's seafood carbonara was very good and many of the other dishes we saw looked great. The chocolate Budino cake was a long wait and then they told us they were out of it. The substituted the excellent brownie sundae on the house and did not charge for our coffee. Food was good and we will return. Very convenient to the Paramount Theater and more reasonably priced than many places. Anxious to try other items. Service was attentive and friendly.
Great for after or before theater!
I often go to Gordon Biersch for an early dinner after a Sunday matinee at the Paramount Theater. It is convenient to the theater and the food selection is great. Everyone in the group can find something they like and I have never been disappointed with the food or the service.
Went to Paramount and was looking for a new place to nosh at...found Gordon's. Food was great as was beer, waiter, although short-staffed, was awesome and as attentative as he could be! Comfy wide booths so you didn't feel cramped. Loved the décor, quiet atmosphere. Came back later after performance at Paramount. Called a friend who met us there - we enjoyed more beer AND ice cream until closing! Will be back for sure!
