Besides Seattle First Baptist Church, visit Lark in the vicinity. If you like Pacific Northwest cuisine, then this restaurant is worth visiting. The chef at Lark cooks mouthwatering oysters, venison and filet américain. Nicely cooked tarte tatin, gâteau and caramel ice cream might be what you need.

The wine list is extensive, it can satisfy the needs of all guests. It's a must while visiting this place to drink great chocolate frappe, espresso or juice. The good staff welcomes visitors all year round. Service at this spot is something one can call fabulous. You will appreciate attractive prices. There is a charming ambiance and terrific decor at this restaurant. Lark is popular among Frommer's experts because they granted it 2 stars.

So we've been here 3 times and the last time we went there will unfortunately be our last. Previously, the food was quite good albeit service + ambiance is OK. This last time was bad enough to warrant us leaving early and definitely not recommending it to anyone else. We ordered 5 of the starters and made the mistake of telling the waitress that we were out on a date night and hoping to relax for a while... I think she took our desire for a leisurely meal a little too far. We didn't even see our waitress for about 15 minutes after we sat down and then got our first dish another 15 minutes later. The hamachi crudo was overly salty, pathetically small - basically 1-2 pieces of sashimi-thickness fish - coated in dried herbs and well prepared fennel. The fish was fine but the salt and excessive dry herbs masked the flavor of the fish... all for almost $20! We got octopus that was borderline inedible due to chewiness (this was also in the $15-20 range) and the terrine parfait that came with huckleberries that were basically flavorless. The burrata was fine and the bone marrow was good but the whole 'meal' of tiny starters took almost 2 hours. Even our second round of drinks took almost 20 minutes to arrive at our table and we only ordered a glass of wine and a beer from the tap. At that point, we just left to go home given that our food took forever and, frankly, isn't worth the incredibly steep price. I'm not sure the chefs/cooks are even monitoring what they're serving. Aside from that, this is now the second time we've been seated directly next to the front door which is FREEZING whenever anyone opens the door. Add to that, that we made our reservations almost 2 weeks in advance... I really wish that someone could respect the fact that it's a terrible dining experience to be there, and given how far out we made our reservations I'd hope for something different. Maybe it's just the luck of the draw? Either way, you can eat someplace much better than here for the price.
Overall dinner was going amazing tell the last dish arrived and for some reason that I can only guess is due to the chef's love affair with local ingredients decided to add mushrooms to our final course when it was not on the menu and very much not welcome.  I can't even begin to tell you how much I loathe mushrooms.  And how much will power it took to not immediately send the dish back to the kitchen.  If it would not have been for this it would have been a very nice dinner.     Simple tip, dont add things that are not on the menu without telling people first.  Even if you think it is an upgrade or an important.
I can't say enough about lark. I discover them when I picked up their beautiful cook book in a spice shop one day. I quickly looked it up and made my a reservation for my birthday. Let me tell you it didn't disappoint. The menu changes seasonally and the wine selection is good. They always start you of with bread and a  smoked lard spread I was on heaven and just wanted to eat the bread until other food started  coming  out.  First  we ordered a cheese yum but the most memorable thing was the hanger steak! I melted and was content to die after that it was that darn good. I highly recommend!
