WoW~

We had a party of 12 and they were amazing with us! It was a bunch of girls having cocktails and appetizers. The waitstaff was amazing! They had blankets and candles. We wanted for nothing that night. The staff is stunning and friendly. They really have a gem in 520. There isn't anything I can say bad! They exceeded my every expectation.

wonderful place, loved it!!

My boyfriend and I recently ate at 520 Bar and Grill and had a wonderful experience!! We sat on the patio which had a very romatic atmostphere! Our server was great with suggesting what wine I should try and my boyfriend just had a beer. We ordered the veggie flat bread as an app and it was delicious!! I tried the Ahi and it was the best i've ever had!! My boyfriend tried the asian whitefish and that was also fantastic. We talked with our server for awhile and told her it was our 1 year anniversary and she surprised us with a free dessert! Not only was that considerate it was also delicious!! I'd reccommend this to anyone who wants to just have a nice dinner with there signifacant other or even go with a group of friends! I checked out the menu and loved that they offered 2 happy hours! now what place does that anymore. The pricing was great for the quality and we'll definately come back again!
thanks for making this a special experience!

Good food and atmosphere

The food is pretty good, and the patio dining in the summer can't be beat. The staff is nice, but their reservation system is a bit lacking. Overall a good experience though.

Will give 520 another try

Stopped in to watch Saturday afternoon football. Some pros - the staff was awesome and attentive even though only ordering beverages and no food. Was there for a couple hours but they weren't at all busy (as in no table wait) so no guilt taking up spots. Unless sitting at the bar the tables were awkward to watch games, at least on the main floor, and tv's small. The main downside is there wasn't quite enough room for the servers to walk behind our table so either they'd bump our chairs or stick bodies in our faces! The first couple times you think, sure, okay they have to walk here to serve the patio but then after the sixth or seventh you wonder why 520 put a table immediately in front of the patio door. The patio looked pretty cool and had we been there for a meal definitely would've tried it out. Will go again because the atmosphere fit our personalities but probably not for a football game and will request different table.

Great Place

520 Bar and Grill has a cozy and friendly atmosphere. The staff made us feel right at home and Kelly our server was exceptional. This place is like a breath of fresh air. Also whats not to like about the food. I would definitely recommend the spinach artichoke dip and hot wings. Great value for a ton of food. Plus my wife and I can't wait for the outdoor patio to open up in the spring.

Things must have changed since the earlier reviews!

Well, things must have changed since the earlier reviews. Restaurants go through changes as they grow. Apparently, 520 bar and grill now in its 4th year has been winning awards for the last 3 years. I personally love how friendly and cheerful the staff is, the food is always fresh and just delicious. I love the honey chicken sandwich for lunch, or the seared ahi or steak gorgonzola for dinner. They have a brunch on the weekends too, try the spicy spanish burrito with avocado and chorizo, or the frittata omlette. The wines are superb. Or try a spritzer or the Medina Martini, and come with friends, this place has a super buzzing social atmosphere. Lots of laughter, smiling and fun. You can bet I'll be back!! 5 stars....not many places where you leave feeling this good about a place and your entire experience!!!

I just wanted to express how much I enjoyed your restaurant. I am fairly new to Bellevue and heard great things about it. I had the opportunity of meeting your warm wait staff and munching on some delectable food. Your bartender Aaron made me a delightful drink which I will soon return for another.

Response to Undercooked Food

We were told about this posting and how negative it was and we thought we should respond. We always strive make our guest happy, if they are not happy then we always comp our mistakes. If someone was not
happy with our salmon sandwich, it is our policy that we would immediately take it off their bill and make it up it up to them in some other way. Our restaurant is inspected on a regular basis (for the past 2 and a half years) we have always received an ABOVE average grade because it is so clean.

We pride ourselves on the fact that we have a OPEN kitchen, and because its open to the public, we go crazy making it look beautiful, because the public sees everything we doing every hour we are open. In fact, we created a bar top looking right into our kitchen so our Guests can eat and watch us cook at the same time. We are proud of this fact.. And because of this we are neat freaks and crazy about cleanliness. We even have an employee whose sole job is to CLEAN our restaurant 7 days a week. She works 3 to 4 hours every morning, before we open , cleaning our restaurant. ... top to bottom. Plus when ever the cooks are slow... you will always see them polishing the stainless steal. We may have some issues, like an hour wait for a table, sometimes louder than normal music or when were busy our servers are over loaded and our service down (so were forced to buy a drink if we can't get it to you in
4 minutes...) but we are not a unclean restaurant. That statement was not true and very hurtful. If this recent guest (name of blog guy) would like to revisit 520, we would love to show them around
and confirm all of the above. Sincerely, 520 management.

Great Bar...and Grill in Bellevue - Main Street

Listen, this is a GREAT bar for what it is: really nice, usually busy outdoor seating, great bar food, a great bar with amazing drinks. Really nice servers. People are happy here and that is why it is usually packed. It's got a great energy to it, it's family owned and run and its a beautiful reprieve from the often times corporate atmosphere that pervade the Bellevue dining landscape.

Enjoy
