Had dinner during a Seahawks game, so it was noisy, but a fun noisy! Food was delicious and just enough.

We had great food and great service! The portions were not excessive, the taste was fantastic, the food was local and delicious. This will be our new favorite place to take visiting friends.

Always great food, we love the clam chowder and always bring visitors to this restaurant. The only thing was, this time I asked the server about the sustainability as our guests were curious about what makes Duke's different. Our server was unable to explain anything about Duke's story or what stands behind the sustainability claim - I guessed this is something servers should be able to explain as it justifies higher prices (and great taste!)

We are repeat customers to Duke's for these reasons 1) The excellent menu selections, 2) their excellent chowders, and 3) gluten free foods are available on the menu. The meals we were served were delicious! Our server gave us tips on the day's menu. Another win for Duke's

My salmon fish and chips was extremely dry and no where near to cost $33. I was disappointed.

Disappointed that after calling and being reassured that we would have a window seat for snowflake lane, we were sat in the back by the bar. Worse was walking to the front and finding open tables while snowflake lane was going. This is an annual tradition for our family and we were sad to not get to enjoy it this year. We were given the impression that because we had booked through Open Table we were given a second tier table even though we made the reservation a month ahead of time.
The service and food were excellent as usual. Dukes has the highest quality seafood and we always melt for the sourdough. This won’t keep us from coming back but I won’t book through Open Table for a holiday again.

I’ve had the same “silky salmon” dish at Tacoma, Lake Union & Bellevue. It’s just not as good at Bellevue. Mostly because of less sauce, if you ask for “cooked through” you get burnt and the potatoes accompanying are far less seasoned & cooked. Maybe it’s just Bellevue is so busy. But it won’t stop us from coming.

Enjoyed dinner at Duke's and cannot stress enough the staff took to make sure our order was correct. The manager and waiter went above and beyond recommending a great wine to go with dinner. We will most certainly be bake on our next trip.

We had a great time. There were 12 of us for dinner and snowflake lane. Requested a window seat and they came thru! Food was good,what I expected. Servers were all very nice. It was a good evening and definitely on the list of to-dos for next year!

First time to Dukes and it was fantastic. The server was great, he came to check up on us just the right amount. The food was delicious, we probably ordered too much food but it was so delicious!

We will be back for sure.

The group arrived at different times and staff was very accommodating. The food was fresh and well prepared. Portions were reasonable—not gargantuan. Prices were a bit on the high side.

We have enjoyed dukes in the past but the last several times that we have gone to Bellevue, Renton and or Ruston way the food hasn't been as good. The service is outstanding the ambiance is great!

We booked two tables for our family due to the 'not more than 4' requirements. This was because of the Christmas Snowflake Lane Parade. The tables were close to each other and our grandchildren were able to watch the parade from one of the tables. The food was wonderful, service was great, it was a perfect evening.

Delicious food and the staff is wonderful. We celebrated my in-laws anniversary with our two year old in tow. Our server was incredibly nice and didn’t bat an eye when my son spilled his apple juice all over the floor. We’ll definitely be back!

Disappointed that the clam chowder, cioppino, and crab stuffed halibut had gritty sand-like bits. The booth seats are very shallow so if you are tall you don't feel like you are sitting in a full chair. I had requested a window table during reservation thru opentable which never passed over to Dukes's. I booked there specifically to watch the Bellevue Christmas parade and we were refused window seating despite 2 open 4 top tables on the window which were not seated until after the parade finished. I have eaten lunch here many times and only recommend it as a casual business venue. The waitstaff is very nice. This seating was very disappointing.

Duke's Bellevue is always a lively venue with excellent food and attentive service. Howver, pricing is a little bit high and a long for the days of a more casual and less expensive Duke's.

Today had ribs as I did just a couple of days ago.
Last week dinner was excellent.
Today’s ribs were dry overcooked this was at 5:30 pm
Should be prime time for fresh food right?
Well ribs over done veggies cold and undercooked.
The wild child salad was excellent.
Hey Duke
Drop in yourself and spot check your customers eating — ask them
I frequently eat at Dukes in Bellevue and south center.
I’m sad to report is getting to be hit and miss
eating at Dukes.
In retrospect the last 6 visits 3 were troubling.

We met our daughter and her family here for lunch on a Sunday. There were seven of us, including three children. We were so impressed with the food, and the service was wonderful--attentive without being intrusive. We had so much fun, and could not have been happier with our choice of restaurant.
