I don't eat land animals so it might seem funny to give a review of a steak house. However, my son is a meat-eater and for special occasions I treat him here (his high school graduation June 2010 and his 25th birthday Feb 2017). Because the seafood choices aren't great (and I don't understand why ahi tuna nor halibut don't... More

We went here for a birthday dinner and we were very happy with our selection of this restaurant. I had the lobster bisque, which was creamy and flavorful. Our entrees were the American Wagyu Ribeye and the Eye of the Ribeye. The steaks were cooked to perfection along with the twice baked potatoes. Topped off the dinner with creme brulee,... More

Excellent bar selection. Went for happy hour and very much enjoyed my visit. Worth nothing that the quality is very good; just be prepared that the prices are above the typical steakhouses like Capitol Grill, Ruth Chris, etc.

A story with a twist, please read. Many months ago, my wife and I ate dinner at John Howie Steak. Our meal was wonderful, but what we found even more impressive is their expansive menu. We also learned that they sell a cookbook containing many of their recipies. The next year for Christmas we purchased the book. Several months later... More

Terrific HH with excellent cocktails and atmosphere, well timed service. The HH deep fried bacon and maple dipping syrup takes one to a new dimension.

This is my favorite upscale place to go for a special lunch. The variety is from hamburgers to gourmet items. The atmosphere is quiet and elegant.. They serve a unique variety of breads--all yummy. The service is excellent but not intrusive. I enjoy the fact that you can get "regular " food but made with the best ingredients. Dinner is... More

John Howie is an elegant and great steakhouse. I can write a very extensive review about it, but I'll rather focus on what makes it different and unique. John Howie is a signature steakhouse exclusive to the Seattle area. This what I like the most. Whenever I have people visiting from other cities or abroad I like to take them... More

This place is special, i normally don't eat steak out because I can cook it home much better than most restaurants. John Howie is different, they know how to cook beef to perfection and they have top quality cuts. USDA prime and WAGYU just to get started. Try the couples Monster Rib Eye special! Happy hour menu in the bar... More

John Howie Steak - a downtown Bellevue favorite. Located in the Bravern near 405 (freeway) off of 8th Ave. A great happy hour with a near famous cheeseburger, bar and lounge open till 11pm or midnight. Fine dining in the dining room. Lunch is quite reasonable ($12-$15 entreees) and delicious. Premium steakhouse for lunch meetings, dates or of course any occasion for dinner. Private dining rooms available as well. Catering available. A fine dining restaurant with more casual options for lunch, happy hour, the bar and lounge.
