Elegant restaurant. Eclectic menu but not everything works. Chicken pate was a disappointment as buckwheat pancake. Duck was ok but no ! mark. Deserts were the best but probably not enough to make up for expensive but not that great other dishes.

Lovely special occasion dinner. The noise level was louder than I like, but not as bad as some others (Ethan Stowell restaurants!).

Our dinner at Lark was memorable: excellent food, very welcoming and attentive service, lovely dining room. We had two specials that evening, a delicious tomato salad and perfectly cooked albacore. We certainly will go back.

Always lovely to visit Lark. Wonderful food in a great atmosphere. Knowledgeable staff well versed on the wine list. The staff member directed us to a small wine producer from Italy we would have overlooked.

A great first dinner on our US vacation....very friendly welcome and delicious food...the pasta with boar ragú and pangrattato was sensational. Plus a great bottle of local Viognier and a well-made cocktail.

We had a lovely anniversary dinner and felt well taken care of. We shared a vegetarian meal and loved how many options there were for us. The mushroom "carbonara" was the best! Thank you!

Lark was one of our best dining experiences in Seattle! The menu was made up of creative dishes, and each dish was well executed! Ingredients were fresh, tastes balanced, and portions appropriate. Cocktails were also creative and excellent...be sure to try the Smoke on the Water drink! We highly recommend Lark to anyone who considers him/herself a foodie, and also to anyone who just plain enjoys great food!

One of, if not the best, restaurants in Seattle. Food and service are amazing. Mostly small plates for sharing.

Best restaurant experience in Seattle. Each dish was made to perfection and they weren’t easy dishes either. Local ingredients, great menu, excellent wine choices (not so on the beer!).

What a beautiful room and atmosphere.47 years ago I went to SU right across the street and there was nothing like this in the area. We were back for a reunion of the heart and had a wonderful meal The strawberry gazpacho was delicious I had the Black Cod and my wife had the Salmon both well prepared a medium rare.I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a romantic delicious night out. I have the Lark cookbook now I am going to have to go home and blow the dust off the cover and work on some of their recipes

We went to Lark to celebrate my birthday (just my husband and I). The restaurant is absolutely stunning, and everyone we encountered was kind. We had their tequila cocktail which was perfect and crisp, especially on such a hot day.

For the appetizer we had their special, tuna prepared two ways. I also indulged in the strawberry gazpacho. YUM!

Dinner was a small order of gnocchi with our two mains, I had the market fish (halibut) while my husband had the king salmon. Both cuts were cooked perfectly. It was the best halibut I’ve had in my life - a perfect golden crust with a light molé sauce.

Everything we had was spectacular and the service was top notch. So glad we finally gave this place a shot! Will definitely be back.

Had a light meal, drinks and dessert. Strawberry gazpacho, pasta, sunchoke chips (!!!) and dessert were amazing. Not into the Restoration Hardware look-and-feel, but we’ll be back for the outstanding food and service.

This is one of the worst food experiences I have evhader . We ordered the charcuterie board and it was disgusting. The hanger steak is not worth the price nor is it very good. We came here for a birthday and left overly disappointed. Would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Halibut was fantastic, copper river salmon and the accompanying food was salty and very fishy. The dessert was a sideways thumb (rating, not food)

Great food and wonderful service with descriptions of dishes that helped us make choices.
Ashley was there at appropriate moments without hovering. A special occasion for us
and anxious to return.
