RN74 - Seattle Ratings and Reviews
Total experience was not worth the money. Service was ok, but when I mentioned that my fish was raw in the middle I got a look of disdain and no other form of acknowledgement. Seemed mad that I complained. Food was nothing special and the price was way high for the quality.
Group of 11, we were well-served, excellent food, all meals and temperatures came out as requested. A bit noisy for conversation, but normal. The one constructive comment would be that we were about an hour into bread and drinks before salads arrived, but main course was timed perfectly after. Wine list was excellent.
Overall, my wife and I had a positive experience. The service was very friendly, but the food was not over-the-top awesome. Honestly, I had expected a better seasoned steak as it was relatively bland. That being said, our booth seating was wonderful, as was our server, Jackie. Generally, it was a positive experience. However, with the number of amazing restaurants in Seattle, I don't know that I would go to this one again.
Pros: - Food was great and our waiter was very friendly. Everyone in our group liked the dishes they ordered and I really like the dessert in the end. 5/5 for food.
- Upscale and pretty good ambience.
- There was a large group seated near us and all the staff were busy providing them service. So scalability is a problem.
- Slow service - We rolled in at 7 PM and we got our table after 10 mins of waiting. We got served our food nearly after 2 hours. There was a fire alarm in between which kept beeping for an hour, I wouldn't blame the restaurant for that though. But our food arrived after 2 hours. The starters were served late and then the main course was late too. All the while the waiters were catering to the large group seated behind us. We ended up leaving the place at around 10:15.The delay could have been due a legitimate reason(s), but there was no feedback or update.
It was a combination of bad service and murphy's law. I won't go back.
I had not yet dined in a Michael Mina locale and thought in seeing the menu that it would be a strong experience. Started with escargot and found it to be dry and nearly bereft of any butter or garlic despite their menu description. The halibut was cooked perfectly but flavorless and the same could be said of the lamb. I was surprised that at 38 dollars the lamb portion was perhaps only 2 ounces. Overall while the service was top rate the lack of seasoning is something that will keep me away from rn74.
This hip and modern steak and seafood venue did not disappoint. Great cocktails, extensive wine list and perfectly-sized menu make this place very approachable. You don't need to spend hundreds of dollars (though it's easily done) to have a decent bite either. You can enjoy an entree and a cocktail for $60 or less. However, if you are celebrating as we were, I highly recommend either of the steaks and a few oysters to start. Impeccable service with just the right amount of attention. Great people watching with mirrors all around which also help to make this intimate space feel larger than it is. We'll be back.
We tried the RN74 experience 5 course meal with grand wine pairing for our anniversary and we were not disappointed. The food was fantastic, got me out of my comfort zone in food selection and introduced me to some fantastic choices. I would highly recommend it.
We've been to RN74 a few times and have always been blown away. This time was no exception.
The service is some of the best i have had anywhere and the food is always tasty. Not to mention the extensive wine list.
Thank you for helping us celebrate our wedding anniversary in style.
Food was fantastic, as was the service. Drinks were delish. Wish we'd known that you can only get happy hour menu/drinks in the bar because there were a few items we wanted to try off there. Next time, we will plan ahead, go early and sit in the bar instead of making a reservation.
This is my second time for the Seattle Restaurant Week(s) and just as the last, it's amazing! I'm sad to hear the Beignets will be going away but I anticipate the Crullers they'll bring on.
Loved the food! For dinner, I had the Foie Gras Torchon, Roasted Chicken Thigh and Beignets. The Foie gras was silky smooth and buttery with a hint of that liver flavor that I personally enjoyed. When combined with the Onion jam and toast, it melds together so perfectly and nicely, like a small bite of rustic France. The Roasted Chicken Thigh was pan-seared on the outside, making the skin crispy and blending so well with the pesto it was served on. the Beignets were fluffy and sugary and the strawberry rhubarb preserves added a splash of tart to the affair.
For Lunch: Butter Leaf Salad, Confit Duck Leg and Beignets. I won't chat more about the Beignets TBH because they're delightful.
The Butter Leaf Salad was a nice start tot he meal, the leaves were crunchy and fresh while the acidic vinaigrette reminded me of the Hungarian preparation with style. The Confit Duck? To die for. The meat was tender and buttery, the skin crispy and crunchy and the saw was a little sweet and tangy to cut through the fat.
Not only am I going back but I'm bringing friends.
If the idea of Restaurant Week is an opportunity for restaurants to impress new customers, they missed the mark. I selected the restaurant from a list, and came dressed like many members of the tech industry would. Me and my guest were seated in the back. The staff was very attentive, and the ambiance was very intimate, but the food itself fell flat in terms of flavor.
The first issue was looking at the special menu. The event touts 3 courses for "thirty-ish" dollars, but one item in each category had an "up-sale" option of $5-$15 in addition. The server also offered sparkling water with no indication of it costing extra. Wether explicit or implicit, a cash grab feels like a cash grab to the customer.
As for the food, the beef tartare, with many ingredients, did not taste like much of anything, surprisingly. The chicken dish was much more flavorful, but you can still get a better dish at Crow in Queen Anne. The chocolate pot de creme was rich and cremes, but failed to "wow" with any type of originality. Serving sizes were European, which I personally appreciate, but I came hungry, and ordering a side order of duck fat fries to share was a good choice.
By the end, a meal that should have totaled at $75 for 2 ballooned to $110+ (sparkling water!!! And a cider) without the food or experience leaving a positive lasting impression.
From the minute we walked in the door, we were taken care of. My wife and I were in town from Portland, celebrating our 7th anniversary, and lucked into Restaurant Week, which offers three course meals for $32 at over 150 Seattle area restaurants. After carefully sorting through online menus, we chose RN74 and its French atmosphere and attention to detail.
They were able to accommodate a same-day reservation change that enabled us to be flexible on our little getaway, which was nice. Then, when we arrived and were shown to our table by the hostess, there was a "Happy Anniversary" card SIGNED BY EVERYONE on the staff, and hand-written with a lovely message. Great way to kick things off!
We each ordered a cocktail with a spring theme. My wife had the Spring Pimm's, which had gin, cucumber, and mint. I ordered the seasonal sour, which had a charred pineapple-rosemary syrup and 10 yr old scotch, with a perfect amount of shaken-egg white foam on top. These paired perfectly with the duck fat fries, which come with a pickled ketchup that we want to replicate.
To start, my wife ordered a garlic soup appetizer, which was made with leeks and had fried garlic as a garnish. I ordered the asparagus with sauce gribiche, puffed rice, and very thinly sliced radishes. It tasted like spring on a fork.
For dinner, my wife had gnocchi with walnuts, pesto, and parmesan. It was very light, but still filling and delicious. I ordered the "short rib" with dauphine potatoes and an onion sauce. I put the short rib in quotations, because it was boneless, and tasted like pot roast rather than short rib, but was delicious nonetheless. The carrots that arrived with it were a bit crunchy, but the presentation was on point, and I was too happy to be picky.
Dessert was a long time coming, but we needed the time to make room, anyhow. The chocolate pot de creme was rich in the best way, and the beignets with rhubarb were just enough. Overall, a perfect way to celebrate!
I took my daughter to RN 74 to celebrate her success in school and as a last day out before went back to school. We chose items rom the Restaurant Week menu, but were surprised when we received our bill and were charged extra for the fries...we thought they were included. We ordered the soup, beef and the gnocchi, and beignets... and they were delicious!
Overall good experience at RN74. A friend and I dined here for Seattle Restaurant Week and didn't do any of the upgrades or additions to the menu because of the steep prices. The food arrived in a timely manner and the courses were timed well. I had the asparagus, chicken and pot de creme. The pot de creme was the stand out for me. The restaurant was rather loud with A LOT of people standing in the bar area (possibly waiting for tables?). Our server was nice but not particularly attentive. All in all I would return but likely only for a special occasion due to the price.
