Queen City Grill
Located in the popular Belltown area, Queen City Grill restaurant is more than it appears. Long and narrow with dark wooden pew-like booths, warmly colored walls that are almost tea-stained in appearance and a well-worn floor makes this shabby-chic place a popular stop for locals and visitors alike. While success has perhaps slightly overwhelmed the kitchen, you can always rely on the Grilled Salmon and Crab Cakes. Come to meet people and savor one of the approximately 500 wines from the cellar.
Went as a single for a steak about 6:45 pm on a Friday. Bar seating was fine. Ordered an 8 oz NY with a Caesar. The steak arrived well before I was able to finish the salad and had to spend some time under the heat lamp. Good piece of meat, but poorly seasoned. Salt and pepper were OK but the sauce was bitter and detracted from the taste of the meat. No baked potato available. Potatoes were mashed, and accompanying vegetables were spinich and a wedge of squash or something similar. My check included a drink I didn't order, and the system didn't permit its removal. The bartender returned $10 to me in cash (drink was about $7) as he had to hit my card for the drink.
At QCG's prices I expected good service, to include the ability to time the main course. The vegetables served with a grilled steak were inappropriate--mashed potatoes and spinich? The inability of the system to back out an improperly charged drink is not excusable.
At the suggestion of our server we tried the Queen's new platter-style dining (not yet on the menu - you have to ask for it or they have to suggest it). It works best with 3 or more people (we had 4) and basically everyone orders their own entrees, appetizers, etc., and instead of arriving at the table on individual plates, the entrees, for example, are served all together on one big platter. Similar to family style. The food, and the presentation were incredible! It really added to our dining experience -- it's much more intimate and fun to share your food and to see each course arriving on beautiful silver platters was very exciting. We did this all the way through dessert and cant' wait to go back and try it again with a larger group!
