RN74 - Seattle Ratings and Reviews
Really disappointed compared to previou ...
Really disappointed compared to previous meals at RN74. Yes, they have the best wine list in the city, but need to work on their menu. The Thanksgiving pre fixe menu was just terrible. The soup was reduced to wall paper paste, under-cooked and fishy fish and tough short ribs. Sides and dessert were unfortunately the best part of the meal. Dinner was over $300 for two people - there are much better options in the city.

WOW!!! Rn74 did not disaapoint!! We were there for Thanksgiving Dinner 2016, very very busy, had to wait a bit, but the staff was attentive and apologetic for the delay. Food was .... AMAZING! Menu was set for the holiday, entrees were Turkey, Blackened Cod and Smoked Beets at our table, all were really wonderful. Dessert was a bit too sweet, but atmosphere, service and ambiance were top notch!!

Been going to Kaspars for 25 years, looking for a replacement, think we found it. Excellent food, well presented. Seared scallops and glazed sweetbreads appetizers both outstanding, entrees all solid hits and the idea of the four "sides for the table" really changed the experience of the dinner, especially the grilled brussels sprouts refilled as soon as consumed. What? Yes! Apple tarte tatin truly a classic dessert, pumpkin praline pie, beignets with dipping sauce creative and tasty. Four of us were able to converse easily, truly a gift these days, and we enjoyed the service, attentive without being pushy or obtrusive. Altogether a comfortable, relaxed evening, so we will be back again.

Incredible. Went for a birthday dinner and was wanting something good. With most restaurants closed on a Monday I thought let's try RN74, WELL ... I'm not sorry the others were closed.
We did the degustation menu. Divine. Truly. I have e allergies to shellfish and no problem, at all, they just made up two courses on the fly. Delicious.
The staff, one word, genuine. Service was superb. Warm, friendly, genuine. Chef came out multiple times to check and genuinely wanted to know how the food was. The waitress genuinely wanted the experience to be great and gave us little tips about wines and places in the area to go, shared personal stories. The sommelier gave us details about each wine, where it came from, why it would go so well with the dish.
A truly amazing evening!!
Thank you crew for making it a special night to be remembered.

Dinner for 4 before David Sedaris show last wek. So glad to have picked this place! Super friendly great feel. Server was a perfect match of fun and professional.
The ox bone marrow and froie gras was phenomenal if you're into that sort of thing.
Spendy just like any decent place in Seattle but well worth it in my opinion.

I was in Seattle for work and by the time my day was wrapping up I was starving. Not knowing the area, I opened the OpenTable app and found this place- it was near by, had space for 1 at 5:30 and the reviews were great. Count me in!
Dining solo can be a lovely or terribly awkward experience, fortunately RN74 is the former. The seating was ideal for a party of 1, the small plates were appropriately sized so that I could try a variety of dishes, and the service was absolutely on point. Engaging, but not intrusive at all.
So glad I found this place- thanks OpenTable for the suggestion and thanks RN74 for the stellar dining experience.

I had dinner many times , it was my favorite restaurant not anymore .

Excellent food. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The ahi tuna carpaccio was amazing, the onion soup was the best I've had in Seattle. The trout was also amazing, the mix of flavours was excellent. The burger was also good but not as good as the rest of dishes. We had the beignets for desert, also amazing. We will definitely go back. Only downside for us was the level of noise. The music was very loud.

We went for an early dinner before a show. Service was great until the restaurant got busier, then it fell off. We would have ordered dessert and more wine, but staff didn't check back in time. The oysters were super fresh, small, and briny - absolutely delicious - and the rest of the meal was quite good, too. The wine list is interesting, but hard to navigate.

Extremely disappointed in our experience. We had a 7:45 reservation and let them know we had a 9:30 show. I was told this would be plenty of time. We didn't sit down until after 8pm although there were open tables. It took almost 10 minutes before anyone even greeted us at the table and another 10-15 minutes to get our drinks. We ordered very basic food as we were worried about time. We got our appetizers, oysters and ahi tartare around 8:35. I was very nervous about time. The waiter kept reassuring us. I had ordered a cold lobster salad and the husband ordered the burger. Our food arrived at 9:15 as we were walking out the door. They comped our "meals" which we didn't have time to eat and even asked to cancel the food so it wasn't wasted but that was it. The meal was still over $100 for two appetizers and some drinks. Not worth the money. We both went into the show hungry and disappointed. Won't be returning here.

We've been to RN-74 in the past and it has always been a solid restaurant. I think they have totally shifted their focus to more of a bar scene than a fine dining experience, which is fine...but their menu and pricing doesn't reflect that change. They no longer offer valet parking and it's a difficult place to find parking with a very busy street that you must enter from. We waited nearly an hour for a table and we had a RESERVATION! Then our dinner was incredibly slow to be presented.
The food was good, but certainly not worth the aggravation and terrible service. We won't be back.

We were going to a show, and let the waiter know we had a hard stop in 1 hour. He took care of that. The food was not impressive. Lobster salad and my wife's halibut entree were worth the price, but my mushroom risotto would not have passed Gordon's inspection on Hell's Kitchen - rice was gummy and the flavor bland. Should have ordered the lamb - the next table did and it looked better. I guess this is Seattle, but when you spend $100+ on a meal for two, with no alcohol, you expect to be impressed. We were not.

My first visit to this restaurant was very disappointing. The waiter was very slow to check on us and my left over box had a plastic lid in it when I took my first bite. Experience was one I won't repeat. It took my an hour to drive into the city , find parking, to wait and wait for a menu. Wait for dinner, wait for dessert, wait for check, I was there two hours and didn't enter feel welcome there.

Great downtown lunch option. The tuna tartar is not to be missed at any Michael Mina restaurant, and the croque madame is excellent. The service is excellent, and the ambiance is comfortable and eclectic. Highly recommend!!!

Food is okay but I'm very disappointed at the customer service. Staffs is not friendly and have no customer service skills . I been to many restaurant &fine dining but this has to the worse experienced of all. I did not feel welcome. I paid over$600 worth of food & drinks with an unwelcome , unprofessional service.

Our food quality was good as usual but the service was wholly unacceptable. Our server either forgot to place our order or there was significance kitchen issues as it took nearly and hour between clearing our salads and dinner service. The server and host came twice to our table to apologize. How did they compensate for the poor experience? The comp'd one desert. Very disciplining.

The ambience was great. Very hip and fun. Sadly, the food was very average. The bacon was completely undercooked in my burger and my green salad was essentially tasteless. We also coughed up a chunk of change for two nice glasses of "premier" wines. The pours were on the smaller side and the wine was freezing cold!

This was my first visit to Rn74 and I will be back! Came in for lunch during Seattle Restaurant Week and the staff was great. The hostess was very friendly and made our visit, our server Vinnie was also very knowledgeable of the menu. The place was packed for lunch but open tables became available at around 2 pm. The vibe is also fantastic, they have a lounge area with comfortable seating and a variety of wine and alcohol available. I will be back for happy hour!

Went for a quick lunch reserved at 1:00 pm on a Wednesday, the host didn't seat us until 1:10. We were seated and waited for the waiter who didn't arrive until around 1:20... He was short and didn't really introduce himself or the menu, which was fine. I had been there before for dinners so maybe that was the lunch vibe or the waiter. Food was a 45+ min wait in which we ordered a dessert to share but ended up leaving cash on the table because it never came. The waiter never once checked on us other than when he came to ask us about dessert, and when we wanted to tell him we were leaving he was MIA, only to be spotted having sips of red wine in the center bar. Nice... Because obviously waiters are really great at serving you? Thanks for the 2-hr lunch...not worth it if you actually have a life you'd rather not waste and a schedule.

Teeny tiny portions served by an overly exuberant waitress along with an inflated check, in an unnecessarily noisy atmosphere. Not sure why it takes half an hour to plate and serve pre-made desserts. And it might be my imagination, but the cocktails and wine portions seem to have shrunk to make up for the exorbitant prices.
