RN74 - Seattle Ratings and Reviews
This is the second time I have been to the restaurant and was less than impressed. When having a glass of wine and munchie at the bar I have been impressed but dinner was just not great. 4 people and 3 of us were underwelmed with our dishes. Mine was so salty that my lips were stinging and the waitress was so slow to return that I didn't have a chance to tell her about the pasta sauce being salty until after I had eaten all the protein in the dish (I was hungry and there was nothing wrong with the chicken). She did her best to make it right but my goodness it shouldn't have gone out like that. The steak my friend got was sauced and eaten in before she returned so he could tell her medium wasn't "rare" and needed it more cooked. I will go back to the bar but I won't eat in the restaurant for dinner again. Side note the endive salad was FANTASTIC!
I have known one of the business partners in RN 74 for 20 years and the way I was treated was rude, arrogant and down right disrespectful. We had an 8pm reservation, the hostess knew we had a 9:30 event to attend. She noted to grab a drink at the bar and it would be 15 - 20 minutes. Not only were we ignored or have my reminding her we had a commitment being dismissed we didn't get seated until 8:45. We immediately ordered the "quickest" item on the menu with no appetizers. The waiter was aware of the rush order. By 9:20 the order was still not ready despite my reminding the waiter of our need to depart. We got up and left. My only regret was cashing out at the bar.
If you want over priced wines, mediocre menu choices and rude, arrogant staff - be prepared to wait over an hour for your reservation,
Went there for our anniversary while visiting Seattle. We did the tasting menu. Food was great. Wine pairings excellent. Our waiter did a great job. The hostess/front of the house seemed a bit of a mess and confused but overall a very strong experience and we'd recommend to friends and family.
The food was excellent, but the service very slow. We waited 5 minutes for the Maitre'd to arrive at the front of the house, and then waited 20 minutes for our drinks. The restaurant was only about half full, but our waiter rarely came by, unless we asked for him. They also have a wonderful "last bottle" ticker board, which shows a list of 12-15 wines that the cellar is on the last bottle of (once the last of a particular kind is purchased, the ticker changes), but we only found this out after inquiring what the board meant - which was a shame, as we had already ordered a different bottle.
New lunch menu is too small, and they have done away with some old favorites like the Salmon BLT. I had a caesar salad with salmon. The piece of salmon, while tasty, was extremely small. My guest referred to the salmon as a "nugget." Certainly not a value dining experience. I won't go back for lunch. Maybe the dinner menu is better.
Date night at a place neither of us have tried. Most of the food was great! We received bread plates but the pre-dinner bread never showed up. Tuna tartare and the duck breast entree are highly recommended! The steak...not so much. I don't like butter on my steaks so I asked them to hold it, which they did. It seemed they let it sit too long after it was ready. It was done how I like it but the outside was dry. I haven't had that issue with other places when I ask for no butter on my steak. Definitely not worth close to the $50 price tag. Service was really slow. One appetizer, two entrees and the desserts and we were there for just under three hours. What I did appreciate was that one of the Managers noticed our wait time and removed our desserts from our bill without either my girlfriend or I having voiced a single frustration. All in all....is try it again as the worst part was the service but it didn't appear to consistently be that way across the restaurant.
This restaurant used to be such fun: good food, service, and energy. I've been there twice in the last month and it's obvious that the servers (even then sommelier!) are NOT enjoying what they are doing. There is a snobby, weird vibe there now that doesn't fit with Seattle. We had the same crappy server both recent visits (unfortunately). He seemed nervous, didn't bring us bread, seemed to be rushing us out, and it was just uncomfortable. The menu is SO small now. The tuna tartare was amazing but the chicken...meh. Of course, it is chicken... Not coming to this restaurant anymore.
We went as a group of 4 with a few Travelzoo vouchers so expectations with a prix fixe menu were not crazy high but man did they manage to disappoint. Our waitress constantly forgot to put in our orders for drinks and extra appetizers, never refilled our waters or checked in on us and when the time came for us to get going she was nowhere to be found for 20 minutes.
The food was meh. I was particularly excited about the beignets and the waitress told us to be careful as they were very hot....ummmm not even close lady. Mine as a fried dough brick. I had these before and they were so good we got seconds but not tonight that's for sure.
A disappointment unfortunately.
First impression was really good, friendly and professional front of house staff had the reservation ready and I was promptly seated. Service was fair - my Gin and Tonic did not arrive until after my starter and the waiter was trying to be overly funny which did not work for me (however this is just personal preference). The starter of Tuna Tartar was alright, however the chicken as main course was disappointing - the sauce was very oily and salty and so strong that I couldn't take anything else and needed a couple of glasses water to rehydrate. Otherwise the ambience is nice and the restaurant has a good layout. Prices were a little high for the quality of food, so I would not recommend the restaurant.
The ambience and drinks at this location were absolutely stellar. Would wholeheartedly recommend the black cod and truffle macaroni and cheese. Personally I ordered the gnocchi dish, and while the accompaniments were delicious, the gnocchi itself was a bit bland. However I would love to return for brunch to give some of their other dishes a try.
We have long been regulars and fans of RN 74. However we have seen some times when the menu or Chefs not at their best.
NOT anymore!! Chef Thomas Greisie is simply AMAZING! The food was creative and delicious. His passion for his work and the artistry by which he does it was evident.
We left happily stuffed as we just wanted to keep eating his amazing creations!
The chef came out and discusssed our meals with us always a nice feature. They have a one bottle left board that updates like a train station board and we had a steal on that! The food was creative, tasty, and local. The service was excellent the waitress even treated us to a port afterwards. The desserts were imaginative. One of our party had a giant macroon that had chocolate cream and raspberries Totally yummy!
If you haven't been to RN74 you truly are missing out. This local gem was a place my husband and I frequented often...before children. Our daughter just turned two recently so we decided to go back , with her ( keep in mind she is well behaved and we were prepared to leave if need be). They have not skipped a beat! Although probably not the normal for small children, they treated our daughter and us like gold. The food was as good, if not better. The details and the care this restaurant takes with the food and their customers is unparalleled. Probably the best steak we have had in forever. (We usually do the Met) but this was mouthwatering delicious! We have had several items and it has NEVER disappointed. The manager, Ashley, is a class act! Can not wait to go back. Thank you RN74, you made our night soooooo special!
