At Daniel's Broiler in Leschi, you can eat delicious steaks cooked under an 1800 degree broiler and observe activity in the marina and on the lake. At Christmas, the Christmas boat parades pass right by. One whole wall of the restaurant is all windows, which is what you want and expect when you eat at a waterfront restaurant.
It's a classy, dimly lit restaurant, even though it has a huge chandelier above the diningroom! Even so, it seems mostly to be a neighborhood establishment. You should feel comfortable wearing jeans into the restaurant. It is Seattle, after all...
I don't know what they season their steaks with, but my filet mignon was so perfectly cooked that I didn't have to salt or pepper it at all. They give you the option of adding a sauce topping to the steak (Bearnaise, Maytag bleu cheese, peppercorn brandy sauce, or the house special of asparagus, Dungeness crab, and bearnaise). I'm glad I didn't spend the extra money to adulterate my steak because it was just right as is. When the meal was served, I got to choose from butter, sour cream, chives, and bacon bits as garnish for my baked potato. That was really nice, as I was only expecting butter.
I gather that prices are typical of the steakhouses in Seattle, though I haven't been to too many. $38 for a 9 oz filet? You can do better in Southern California, but maybe not in Seattle. Overall, I was very pleased with my food and the dining experience, though one of my friends was extremely peeved by the waitress who kept trying to up-sell us on everything.
