The Ballard Cut
Apps didn’t arrive until after the main courses and only after asked about. Pork chop unevenly cooked. Tartare exceptionally salty.
We went for my dads 50th birthday and it was a great experience! We all loved our meals and the whiskey suggestions were spot on. Knowledgeable and friendly staff in a very comfortable setting!
I went with a group. We all really enjoyed our dinners and the octopus appetizer was delicious. The only think I would mention that could use improvement is the strawberry rhubarb cobbler/. The topping ( oatmeal base) was not crusty or cooked it seemed like just sprinkled on raw which was pretty chewing abs not great but the filling was delicious/. I thought maybe someone forgot to bake it? I still would definitely return. Great presentation and flavors with everything.
Steak was not medium rare. Came out medium. Loud group behind us.
Food was excellent. Wasn't preparing a legitimate steakhouse meal (and steakhouse prices) but was very happy with the quality, quantity, and creativeness of the food we ordered.
Incredible spot to take a first date!
Great food and cocktails! Price was a little high but the food was phenomenal.
Cocktails and service were excellent, food was okay but inconsistent dish to dish. Steak was cooked properly, but wasn't a great cut of meat for the price.
Food was delicious, we had New York steaks. Service was outstanding.
Love the food. Our waiter was awesome and always right there.
We love The Ballard Cut - great people, great service, fun spot. But we are a little surprised by the prices. To be honest I don't normally really look at the prices of appetizers, entrees at restaurants/they're usually all in the same price range. The Ballard Cut was noticeably higher and I don't think the value was delivered. The mussels, venison tartare and cauliflower were very good. The carbonara was a good pasta but didn't quite live up to my expectations of what a carbonara should be. The half chicken was also good but looked more like half of a quail, and again quite pricey and even more surprising when we saw how small it was.
Really could not have had a better overall experience. All the drinks food and service were spot on. Sat outside on a beautiful Friday evening and enjoyed every minute of it. Tommy, Ross and Tenicia (sp?) were wonderful to talk to. Will definitely be back! 💖
My go to place in Ballard. Food is excellent, servers are friendly and attentive. Amazing whiskey collection. Every time I’ve been there, Tommy, one of the owners, has stopped by to discuss whiskey with me and even share a taste of some of his favorites.
Everything was amazing! We had the octopus, carrots, and pork belly for appetizers. Main course we got "the CUT" ribeye. Then dessert we shared the chocolate peanut butter pie, strawberry rhubarb ala mode, and the blood orange pannacotta! Each dish was thoughtful, fresh (clearly using the best local ingredients) and could've easily been my favorite yet! The service was also amazing. Everyone was responsive and kind. The star of the show, however, was the whiskey (duh)! Tommy (one of the owners) was not only a great host, but wonderfully knowledgeable about each of the whiskeys. He took us on a history tour explaining the origins and back stories of each of these rare and beautiful spirits. I will totally be returning and can't wait to see what new adventures await here! Cannot recommend them enough!
When I'm having a girls night out or want to impress my date, I take them here. The food and drinks are so incredibly delicious. And when I have trouble choosing, the servers are always attentive, full of information, and fun.
For my boyfriend and his best friend, there is nothing better than when the server knows their whiskey...and I mean, REALLY knows their whiskey. We basically got a history lesson along with our flights of Blanton's. It was really enjoyable and we will return for more drinks, food, and history lessons in the near future!
Our server Joey was so nice and friendly. The food was outstanding, some of the best king salmon I've ever had! Venison tartare was unique and delicious. I really liked the menu overall and would happily come back again.
Great drinks and excellent food. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Great experience. Food was delicious with a few very pleasant surprise.
We ate here to tonight to celebrate our engagement earlier today. To say the staff went above and beyond would be an understatement. Truly a special night for my fiancé and I. We had the NY strip and the tagliatelle as our entrees and both were amazing in their own right, we'll be drooling over them for weeks to come. The cocktails were delicious and the create your own whiskey flight was a true treat. Being out of towners, it might be a bit before we come back but rest assured we will given the chance and will also be forcing any friends and family we know coming to Seattle that they must come too. Thank you so much for a truly wonderful night out!
The staff, the food, wine and the experience was WELL BEYOND our expectations. Honestly, it may have been one of the best dining I have ever had. Can’t wait to go back!!
Terrible service. I had reservations for 915. They made us wait 45 minutes before they had us seated.
Service was Terrible. They never came back to ask for drinks or water. Once the check was cleared, they never approached us.
The whiskey selection was unbelievable. The owner put together a custom whiskey flight for us that knocked it out of the park. Food was outstanding. It felt like a time machine to a pre covid era. Can’t wait to go back!!!
Incredible experience. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. They helped my husband find a spectacular new whiskey to try. The food was delicious, too. We particularly loved the cauliflower and the tomahawk pork!
Stellar as always. Thanks again for always being the best of hospitality.
Excellent service, environment and meal. Ad a whiskey flight at the end that the owner selected for us and it was fantastic. Highly recommend.
The meal was incredible. Started with a whiskey sour, shared the grilled octopus and crispy pork belly. Finished the night off with a tasting of the half chicken and the pork chop. One of the best meals I have ever had!
Beautiful room, very nice people
Overall good night. Staff was very friendly, and very helpful. Had the tomahawk pork chop, which unfortunatley came out with the celery puree very cold. Teasted decent, but would have been better hot. Other than that. all good. The clam appetizer is fantastic!!!!
Tommy and his custom whiskey tastings are not to be missed. Bring a date, bring friends, bring whiskey novices and they’ll love what Tommy picks out for them!
Fantastic food. The Brussels and New York were amazing.
Our server was outstanding! Felt very safe sitting outside and had a heater. It was great
We had such a great experience at the Ballard Cut. We were greeted and seated promptly and the service was phenomenal. They print new menus daily and since those were delayed, we were given a small cocktail sample on the house while we waited. Our food was delicious as well as the cocktails we ordered. Would highly recommend if you need a place for a nice dinner or celebration.
We ordered a glass of whiskey and they left the bottle so we could see it while tasting which was much appreciated!
Absolutely LOVED the food, the service! A new fave !!
Most amazing service and food around. Love everything about the cut. The whiskey selection is unparalleled. Double Eagle Very Rare!
Super friendly staff, and quite accommodating given the cold temps outside. (Constant monitoring of the propane heat lamps!) Food was decent (I actually like that the menu is small!) And tasty cocktails. Try the Hot Toddy!
Amazing food, perfect service, phenomenal drinks
My husband and I chose to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary here and we were not disappointed. From start to finish The Ballard Cut was an outstanding experience. The libations were easily some of the best we have ever had. The food was perfect. Never during the whole experience did we think anything needed improvement or was missing something. To sit and enjoy not only each other but the atmosphere, the hospitality and the meal was truly an evening to remember.
Highly recommend, especially when looking for an outdoor dining experience that is warm and comfortable. Their patio heaters are almost as good as the food! We had the clams, brussel sprouts, pork chop and steak. A fabulous meal accompanied with great cocktails. Delish!
