Loved our meal at Quinn’s. The food was seasonal and fresh. We enjoyed a couple of small plate offerings as well as entrees. I would highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to returning.

Wonderful experience all around. We not only had an excellent server, but the entire staff was attentive and courteous. Food is good, there are some fine-ish options for foodies, as well as more casual options to please the general population. It was the cocktails that I liked the most. Great spot, definitely recommend for any size group of people.

Food was good but for it to be almost 30 dollars for a big plate, I was disappointed by the amount of food I actually got. Wasn’t worth the price of what I got. You should definitely let people know if they are going for a birthday that they get charge for the dessert which is crazy cause most places do free birthday desserts so that was frustrating. And, our waiter after we had paid our bill, came rushing back to the table asking us if we are okay because he noticed we didn’t tip him because we weren’t entirely pleased with our stay and then proceeded to say, “you know gratuity isn’t included right?” Like how dare you, just expect a tip from me I paid what I needed to pay dude so what’s your deal! I definitely won’t be coming back!

Food was just okay. I had read so many great things, perhaps I was expecting too much. The salmon was not very flavorful and was served rare. The Comte cheese plate was incredibly small and served with somewhat stale bread slices. The Scotch Egg was the best part of the meal.

I love coming here to watch Halloween shananigans - we sat by the window and were entertained all evening while we ate an array of excellent food - I had the Duck Muscovy - nicely rare yet crispy on the outside, very flavorful. The scotch egg, beef salad and cheese plate were also awesome. I ordered several cocktails and my friend had one suggested - we really enjoyed them all!

Really tasty food and generous portions (the bone marrow plate comes with 3 bones!). The service was excellent, Zach was very attentive and friendly. Only letdown was the cocktails were hit-or-miss - the first round was very mildly flavored, so on our second attempt we specifically asked for spirit-forward drinks and ended up getting good recommendations.
Overall very good, we'll absolutely be going back.

Home run for a unique date night! The location on Pike had a unique, fun and funky vibe. The staff was friendly and attentive without being invasive. We started with the pretzel and four gras...both were fantastic. The mains of the house burger and the risotto were stellar. They even treated us to a small glass of prosecco to celebrate our anniversary. If you want a little something different with high quality food, try Quinn’s!!!!

I love the atmosphere in this funky old building. The menu is small, but I've really liked what I've ordered the two times I've been there: first a burger, then the fish & chips. Service was absolutely perfect; our waiter was attentive, professional, charming, and friendly. The food was served with perfect timing and was piping hot. My old-fashioned was one of the best I've had, and the waiter helped us make an alternate beer selection when our first choice was unavailable. The tab before tip for a burger, fish and chips, a soda, a cocktail, and a beer was around $64, which we thought was very fair. Very vibrant neighborhood, great for walking around before or after your meal.

Great service friendly atmosphere, great food. The Steak Tartar was amazingly seasoned, the fois guas was paired with a sweet bread, the beet salad was perfectly pickled and paired with a nice gorgonzola, the steak friets was so tender you could cut it with a fork. The waiter made sure we were all taken care of and that we had a great time!

We came here on a Thursday evening to celebrate a birthday, having had a good experience here before. We chose Quinn's because the atmosphere is relaxed and cozy, and the menu is interesting.

TL;DR - Service was really good, well designed drinks, but someone wasn't paying attention to details in the kitchen.

Our waitress was really great about explaining the food and when we asked what her favorites were she had great informed opinions. The specialty drinks were very good. We tried the Old Man and the Daiquiri, Missed Opportunity, and Shrinking Violet. All 3 were very good! The plan was to get a few small plates so we could try a variety of things. We ordered the bone marrow, delicata squash salad, pork belly with grits, and Scotch egg. Except for the pork belly had a little something prevented it from being really good. The squash in the salad was barely warm and still hard, the bone marrow seemed like it wasn't roasted long enough to get a deep flavor and the topping while nice made the dish too sweet. The flavors of the Scotch egg were great, but unfortunately the egg was cold. In addition they offered to re-make the squash salad, but it never came out (the waitress very kindly removed it from our bill). I could have forgiven these things more easily if it has been a busy Friday or Saturday night, but not so much on a Thursday when all tables aren't filled and no one is waiting.

we arrived early for our dinner reservation and were quickly accommodated to sit at the bar and order from the bar menu (which is still excellent!). By the time dinner service started, we were brought those menus to order any additional items we wanted. Great service and atmosphere, we were just a bit disappointed with the marrow dish, but everything else we ordered was excellent!

I hadn't been to Quinn's Pub in some time and the menu had changed since that time. They are more meat-oriented now and source their meat from Wilderness Farms (in WA and MT). The waiter explained how the chef uses every part of the animal, so that there is very little gone to waste. I was in the mood for a burger, and the recent animal that had been brought in was a pig, but I was oh-so-tempted to change my order to pork. The burger is top notch though, one of my favorites in Seattle, it's reaaaalllly good! The fries are also excellent. My girlfriend had the mussels and also loved them, they were cooked in a white wine sauce and there were plenty of them for her. The beer list seems to have also grown since the last time I was there and there were some pretty good selections - the Quinn's Ale is solid, but I opted for a different Belgian ale - the Monk's Indiscretion by Sound Brewery, which was a whopping 10%ABV and paired excellently with the burger and fries.

I've been coming to Quinn's for many years now for dinner as well as happy hour and I've always really enjoyed it. I've brought parents and other visitors from out of town, and this was the go-to place I'd bring picky eaters since it can accommodate a range of palettes, from standard meet-and-potato end of the spectrum to more creative predilections. Today was an exception. The food came out extremely slowly. The steak entree I had was lukewarm at best, and, even the bread that was brought was stale and flavorless. No questions were asked when I barely touched my steak about what might have gone wrong. The service was generally apathetic and aloof. My partner's fish and chips and my side of mushrooms were good, hence a three star overall rating. I will come back to Quinn's since this disappointing experience does not outweigh literally tens of visits over the years, but I will have to give it some time.
