    Visiting from out of town. Keegen was an outstanding server! Sat on the patio for a Sunday evening dinner! View of the lake was gorgeous! Shared a tureen of clam chowder and a great salad! This is the first time I have been able to have gluten free clam chowder! It was absolutely outstanding! We topped off our dinner by enjoying coffee and carrot cake. Loved both of them! We loved our meal, service, and experience so much, we made another reservation for this week! Dont miss this wonderful restaurant!

    I had a 6:30pm reservation for a table on the deck. They wanted me to wait an extra half hour for my reservation. I would not agree so they gave me a table inside. Food and service were excellent. Being an Alaskan, I am used to eating fresh seafood, the seafood at Dukes is fresh Alaskan Seafood. Thank You Larry

    We were looking for a nice dinner spot to enjoy seafood near Lake Union. Unfortunately Dukes fell very short for many reasons. I had called to ask about parking and they said they had parking right outside. But they never mentioned that you had to pay for it. Then as we entered the restaurant we had to walk up a huge flight of stairs to get to the dining room. I was with a friend who has some physical limitations and getting up the flight of stairs was challenging for her. Once seated, we had a nice table with a nice view and the noise level was not very noisey which I was very happy about. But the worse Part of our experience was our server, Malakee. He is was not very attentive. Kept forgetting about us. Kept getting stuff Wrong and just generally his service style was strange. The food was all delicious but the service really killed the experience.

    Nice view of South Lake Union. Food OK. Coconut shrimp were greasy, but good. Dungeness Crab Cakes were not close to the best I've had. Much better seafood restaurants available in Seattle.

    ‘Battered ‘ fish &amp; chips was not only deep fried it had been deep fried beyond recognition. It was a charred lump of crumb. I should have returned it. Any chef who doesn’t know the difference between batter &amp; deep fry shouldn’t be working in any fish kitchen. My husbands salmon (drowned in sauce) was far from fresh, maybe that’s why it was drowned in sauce. The meal cost was extortionate for the quality &amp; if you like good food my advice would be AVOID!!

    We had an excellent business lunch here. I only wish I had known that the parking was so difficult so at least I would have planned to come early enough to find parking. I had to park next door since the parking at Duke's was full.

    We had a reservation. Upon arrival, I spoke to the front desk. There was some confusion amongst the staff as to who was working, hours, when, and where. After 12 minutes we were escorted to our seats on the outside deck. It took a good 10 min for water and menus to arrive. Another 10 minutes for a waiter to ask if we wanted drinks (there were only 3 tables with customers). Otherwise, the food was good, atmosphere great. The outside heaters were very nice as it was not real warm. I will return and hope the service is a little more prompt.

    This is our first time going to Duke’s. The reviews said that the clam chowder was excellent. We were not impressed. It was very salty. My husband and I shared an order of the fish and chips which were very good, and we’re piping hot. All of our food arrived at the same time, which I thought was unusual. After we finished the chowder, the fish and chips were still nice and hot and fresh. I really don’t see all the hype about the clam chowder being so famous. Lots of other Seattle restaurants have excellent chowder. But the noise level was very high. My husband and I could barely carry on a conversation and had to repeat things across the table. This is not the place for a quiet lunch. I’m pretty sure this is a one and done.

    The setting was beautiful and ambience lovely. We were only in Seattle one night and chose this restaurant. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. My husband ordered the special, which was salmon with goat cheese and blueberries and I ordered the cioppino. His dish was "okay" and mine was surprisingly tasteless. The broth had so little flavor that I had to ask for hot sauce and had to salt it. Service was fine. Brownie dessert was delicious. For $130 (including wine). I'm sure there are restaurants in Seattle with better food!

    Wonderful staff, lovely view, and food was great. Our visit was marred with a shrimp that was not properly cleaned. Personally a veined shrimp makes me visually ill and I could not continue with the meal. The staff was apologetic and gracious, and up until its discovery I was enjoying my Cioppino.
