RN74 - Seattle Ratings and Reviews
Casual business lunch. I ordered the Arctic Char, which was perfectly tender with a crispy skin. Artioke hearts and lentils with truffle butter accompanying. Balanced, delightful, and not too heavy. My dining companion had the steak frites with duck fat fries. We were both quite pleased. Mellow atmostphere and rather quiet.
Went for an early diner with coworkers. Staff were courteous and service was prompt and as expected.
The bar does not serve beer on tap which I found lacking at a restaurant which identifies itself as a brasserie. Even the beer list could be considered on the limited side.
The Boston lettuce salad was very simple but the dressing was the highlight with its flavors of rosemary and tarragon.
The halibut was cooked to perfection, moist and flaky, but puree and the beans served with it totally overpowered the flavor of the fish.
The gnocchi was well prepared and tasted very very good.
We missed this time on dessert.
I would probably come back but not in the near future and definitely not for a business dinner.
Poorly executed little sibling to San Francisco's version of this restaurant. The food was flavorless and left us entirely unsatisfied. The wines were not much better -- I tried two different items and both were average at best. I think this place depends on the "Minna" name but Mr. Minna is clearly not spending enough time in the Emerald City to ensure RN74 is worth the trip. Pass on this one unless you want to spend a couple of hundred dollars on thoroughly uninspired fare.
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.
