RN74 - Seattle Ratings and Reviews

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.

The food was delicious. Wonderful steak tartare; even though it was not usual to serve with it they quickly brought out the bread we requested to go with the tartare. And the French bread was grilled to perfection. Perfect steak for me and trout for my husband. The beignets for dessert were perfect dipped in scotch-flavored Pots de Creme. The service was exceptional and they got us out in time for the theater.

I will start off with the positive. 3 out of the 4 diners enjoyed their meals. I did not however. we were there for a combination of restaurant week and my birthday. The restaurant week menu looked like a good French menu. And it is, sort of... The coq au vin, steak frites and gnocchi were all first rate and enjoyed. I had the trout almondine which I thought had next to no flavor. I was extremely disappointed. For dessert I ordered the profiteroles which were also not served in the classic way. They were also microscopic. For someone who drastically limits desserts, this isn't what I was hoping for for my birthday celebration. I guess I went with the wrong expectations. It was also way too loud and the tables are really crowded together. I thought the service was slow, and the portions just too small. I won't go there again, or recommend it.

The appetizer and dessert was really good but the entree was a complete disaster. Considering that an entree is suppose to be the the most important part of a meal it made the whole experience very disappointing. I will note that while this place is suppose to be one of the best French restaurants in Seattle it greatly lacked a French feel and while the good had French ingrediants it was not what I would call French in any circumstance. I hope this was an off night but I cannot recommend this restaurant with a good conscious.

The cocktails (all of the French 75 variety) were delicious and stronger than they tasted. The tempura shitakes (lots), oysters and truffle bread were all great starters. The bone marrow was quite large with some beef on top. The bistro steak, chicken with chanterelles, and mushroom risotto were also all good. A delicious meal in a warm, hopping restaurant. The pace of the meal was a little hard on the child with us, but once we had the truffle bread (comes with ricotta & honey) it was fine.

Went for restaurant week. Had the wine pairing with the meal. Service was excellent; courses weren't rushed and were nice portion sizes (on smaller side) for the 3 course meal...still had room for fantastic dessert. Try the beignets!! Ambience was great for date night or a nice dinner out with friends.

RN74 is a good meeting place for lunch although it got a little loud as the restaurant filled up. The food was very good, and the special prix fixe SRW menu gave a good selection. It was the first time I had heard of this restaurant but hope to go more often in the future.

Four of us went to dinner before the theater. All of us enjoyed our dinners. Had Trout Almondine and Risotto . The ladies that drank the wine thought it was really good they had the wine pairings. We all enjoyed our desserts too. Good coffee. It was during restaurant week.

We went because of restaurant week and RN74 is a place we've wanted to try but not interested to pay the $$$$ to do so since we are so regularly underwhelmed. We have many friends who are excellent cooks and generally in most restaurants we find the noise level too high and the food not memorable. Therefore, restaurant week gives us a great opportunity to check things out. Food and service were good. We have to say that we were disappointed that at these regular menu prices this restaurant was so casual. We expected something a bit more refined, more French in feel, music less loud, and patrons without small kids on laptops. The service was very nice, thorough, and professional. But couldn't the staff wear classic French bistro attire (white shirts, black pants, black aprons) instead of jeans? The food was also very good. My wife and I eat out quite a bit but wouldn't return to pay $30+ For an entree here. For that, we want a more refined experience which seems to be non-existent these days in Seattle. And it didn't seem particularly French to us. The experience was nice but not exceptional. What was exceptional was actually being able to hear each other for a change in a restaurant.

We came in before a play at the 5th Avenue, and it was restaurant week. Food is great, a little disappointed that it wasn't as advertised $32 for 3 course. The option I wanted was a $10 buy up. Make the menu fit the marketing.

First time here, we had the 3 for 32 with a few add on, I had the foi gras, which was the pate type, it was very good, others in my party had the butter lettuce salad and the parsnip puree, all raved about their choices. My husband and I had the trout, we were looking for something light and I can say we were pleasantly surprised (not sure why) on how good the trout was. Flavorful and beautifully cooked. I will say I am not a cabbage fan, but finished every bit of the cabbage that was served with the trout. Both our dinner companions had Coq a Vin and both said it was one of the best they have had. We like to try out new restaurants during restaurant week, if they serve a good meal on the shortened menu, it makes us want to return, and we will certainly return to RN74. Service was also spot on, friendly and efficient. If I had one negative and it is a small negative, is that they charge you for a coffee refill, that was a bit of surprise. but not enough to keep up from returning

My wife and I went here for our anniversary. The food did not disappoint! I was very surprised how empty this restaurant on a Friday night at 7:30. That could have had something to do with 90,000 people watching a couple of sporting events in close proximity at the time.
We loved the food, enjoyed talking to the chef (and his suggestions for the next time we visit) and would come back for another special occasion or as part of a larger group!

A close friend was in town for business meetings and I made reservations because I wanted to bring her someplace special and a place she wouldn't have in Alaska. She has to be careful with her diet, so I sent her a copy of the menu and she couldn't wait to try your food. We had an outstanding lunch with a visit from my favorite Chef Amanda ;-)

This was one of the most if not the wonderful most dining experiences of my life at 48 years old and I'm very high maintenance everybody nailed it out of the park and then some have a treat get a booth and enjoy yourself Jeff we'll pick the best according to your palette. The staff from Dominique to the manager Lawrence Matt or we like to call Matty Jeff the song Ben the executive chef please go in early to have a cocktail with Blair the bartender with the best wine experience in Washington. Have yourself a great evening tell them David of Aspen limo tours sent you

found the bartender rude - had a round of drinks at the bar while we were waiting for our table. When our table became avaialble I asked to transfer our bill to the table . He said he would prefer we settle the bill at the bar but could transfer it if we wanted - when i said I wanted it transfered like I asked for originally he would not make eye contact with me and was noticeable not pleased - not the best way to start our dinning expereince -

While the food is exceptional the menu is a fairly limited. What we found really outstanding was the service. There was not a server that passed by our table without looking to see if we needed something. If we did, they were right on top of it. Being light eaters both my wife and started with the butter lettuce salad which was fresh with a great dressing. I had the Hand-Cut Beef Tartare. The Potato Gaufrette was a nice addition and the beef was prepared into a nice patty.
My wife had the Ahi Tuna Tartare which was finally prepared at the table - delicious!!
Overall it was a very outstanding dining experience.

We were greeted and seated right away. Loved our booth seating, was easy to have a conversation without raising our voices. The food was delicious and the wait staff was friendly. The only thing I would mention is that our waiter checked in to see if we were ready to order, we were not, he said he would be back in a few minutes, but at least 10 minutes, a little too long... But overall a great meal and fun evening!
