Great Seafood in Bellevue – I recently visited 0/8 and was extrememly satisfied with their service. They provide a wide variety of choices for dining and drinks. With great prices for happy hour. Definately a must for seafood and wine in Bellevue.
Awesome Happy Hour – This is a great place to take clients for a drink and nosh after work. Excellent service. Classy but not stuffy. We loved our waiter, very funny and quick.
Worst Dinner Ever – I tried the cioppino and my husband had the scallops. Both were drenched in bottled garlic. We could not get the horrible taste out of our mouths even the next day. Our salads were lacking flavor, they could have offered fresh ground pepper, it may have helped but they did not. I would not go here for dinner, maybe a glass of wine and appetizer before you go somewhere else for good food.
Great Valentines Night – Tried for the first time and really enjoyed this place, the monkfish was great and my wife had a tenderloin, cooked perfect. Great service and wine selection, we will go back.
Great food and wonderful,extremely attentive service! – Ate at 0/8 last week for my Mom's birthday and was very impressed with the service and food. Our waiter was always there when we needed him... we never had to look around for him. The GM made sure to make it around to every table to make sure that the evening was going well... I was very impressed by that personalized service. The cold sashimi scallop appetizer is amazing!
Wasn't my first time there... have actually been quite a few times and have always had consistently good service and food. The fish is always cooked perfectly and the waitstaff is VERY knowledgable about the menu. Love the wine flights too! Would definitely recommend 0/8 to anyone!
Fine Wining and Dining with First-Class Customer Service – My husband and i went to 0/8 on a whim for our anniversary and it is now on the top of our favorites list! We didn't have reservations and told the hostess we'd be happy to sit in the bar until a table became available. She was super friendly and said she'd find us a table. A few minutes later the GM, Justice, came over to us and told us he'd get us to the best romantic booth... and scoped it out for us until something became available. Meanwhile our waitress, the wine and appetizers were great! Justice soon came over and brought us to a booth in the champagne lounge. We had the cod and the trout and they were AMAZING! Justice made sure that we had a perfect anniversary... especially by bringing us over two complimentary glasses of La Grande Dame champagne! Cheers to 0/8! We'll be back!
terrible food, bad service, waste of money and time – We had reservations for Saturday night (Dec. 27th), and our party of four were seated in a very large booth. My sparkling water took 35 minutes to appear. Our starters took over 50 minutes to appear after ordering it. The table next to us were overheard to complain often about when their food would arrive, I think they waited longer than we did. My salmon was the worst salmon (wild king salmon) I have ever had in any restaurant anywhere in the world. It was a small tail end piece with a lot of grey stuck to the pink flesh and the flesh was tough (difficult to cut and tasteless). Unbelievable really. The dressings for our salads were so lightly dressed, there was no flavor to the dressing (for both the green salad and the beet and fennel salad). The entry did arrive 40 minutes after the starter was served. On the one plus side, the scallops that two of our party had were done well, and the crab cakes were also tasty. The wine is totally overpriced. The total price for our tab was over $300. I can think of a dozen restaurants within the immediate vicinity that do a much better job at a great deal less, price wise.
Excellent Happy Hour – We were in Bellevue for business from Colorado and spent 4 days eating seafood - everywhere from the Pike Place fish market to the Eastside at 0/8. We couldn't make it to dinner at 0/8 but stopped in for happy hour on Sunday. We sampled several of the "nosh" items off the Twisted Cork Happy Hour menu including the shrimp salad, oyster shooters and scallops. It was all excellent, though the scallops were so good if I go back I may just sit and eat those until I'm full. The wine list is outstanding. If you're there for dinner, start with a taster flight to find one you love and then order a glass. For $16 I got to try three great Zin's (the Klinker Brick was by far my favorite). Overall a great choice in downtown Bellevue and some of the best seafood we had in the Puget Sound area!
Chef Dan has got it! – I was the lucky "8th caller" winner on Chef Dan's weekend radio show in late August, but had to wait until I returned from a 4200 mile roadtrip on the Harley before I could take my lovely girlfriend to dinner at the Grill. I got home about noon on Sept. 17th, spent a few hours making myself presentable, then picked up Tonya in the convertible. Because I wanted to make the evening as special as I could, I opted for the valet parking after pulling into the inspiring off-street courtyard of the several surrounding businesses.
We were warmly greeted by the hostess at her podium, and I explained that I was Dan's lucky radio show winner. As if on cue, Chef Dan walked up from the kitchen and the hostess introduced us. After a cordial welcome from Dan, we were led to our table. Because were dining under a special voucher, our waiter clearly explained our menu options, and gave us a few minutes to make our Starter, Entree, and Dessert choices while he went for our drinks. Both of us opted for the Crabcake starter, and the Cedar Planked Salmon for our entree. Tonya chose the Creme Brulee for dessert, while I was intrigued by a banana dessert with mousse; both were excellent! About the time we were weighing the pros/cons of licking our plates clean, Chef Dan came by our table for a courteous follow-up. As we gushed over the food and our entire dining experience, Chef Dan took the time to explain in detail how he prepares the Cedar Planked Roasted Salmon. He made us feel like we were the most important guests dining in the restaurant that night.
This review wouldn't be complete without acknowledging the outstanding service and attention by our server, Roy. He was professional and knew how to be attentive without becoming a disruption to our dining experience. Kudos to Chef Dan, and the entire team at the Grill. I will recommend them to all my friends, family and co-workers who want to enjoy a special dining experience.
What can I say but thank you! We love to hear from our guests how great a time they had at our restaurant. We like to think every guest is the most important guest in the house, regardless of whether they are in for a quick breakfast, happy hour, or a special celebration dinner. I have thanked Roy personally for a job well done! Please don't hesitate to ask for myself or Chef Dan the next time you are in so we can thank you personally as well. We look forward to your next visit. Cheers - Matt Bomberger - firstname.lastname@example.org
Too expensive – the food is OK however too expensive and doesn't worth it. They charged me $18 for a regular glass of wine and $10 for a bottle of wate (!). The scalops are really good, the entrees are overpriced and you can get better food in Town for 20% less.
I am very sorry to hear of your experience. I apologize that you did not receive the service and quality you expected.
We do have a broad range of wines by the glass (over 85 in fact) ranging from $6 a glass to $76 a glass (1995 Krug Vintage Champagne), with more than 1/3 of our glass list $10 and under. We also have lower priced options on bottled water. In addition, we recently changed our Happy Hour offering to provide more beverage specials ($6 featured wines, $4 drafts, $4.50 premium well drinks) and a broader choice of appetizers at a value price ($1.95-$5.95 from 3-6pm daily). We strive to keep our prices competitive and have benchmarked our prices with other local restaurants.
Please let me know if you decide to visit us again, I?d like to say hello in person. Either way, thank you for visiting us in the first place and thank you for helping to make us better.
