This is the first place we landed in Seattle after flying in from the East Coast & we were starved! We couldn't have picked a better place - the food was delicious, the service quick & professional & the beers were cold. I had a Portabello Mushroom sandwich that was absolutely the best sandwich I have ever had. The mushrooms... More

As a local, I forget about great places near tourist spots. My husband and I visited this charming spot earlier this month. It is in an old building at First and Virginia streets right by the Pike Place Market. In the summer they have outdoor seating, you can even bring your dog! They had great Northwest art on the walls.... More

I was lucky to be in Seattle during a spell of excellent weather. The views from the 2 or 3 outdoor seats on the corner were great, with a view of the water and west seattle. The service was OK, a little bit slow and disorganized, but given the great weather and views, this was not a big negative.

My husband and I were planning to go somewhere else as he wanted a steak. Our tired feet could not hold out any longer. He saw someone outdoors eating a steak so we decided to go back and give it a try. He was very pleased with his meal. I selected the broiled scallops with potato gnocci and fava beans... More

We stumbled on this place on June 30 late on a hot afternoon after giving up on finding any place that wasn't jammed near Pike Street Market. The servers were quick with ice water (bless you!), attentive without being intrusive and knowledgeable about the beers, food, etc. The outside tables are a great place to people-watch. Happy hour appetizers were... More

They need to clean the grill because all the food tastes like old charcoal. The burnt grill marks on the pita bread ruined the taste. My husband's steak had a terrible burnt taste and he sent it back. They brought him grilled chicken and again the taste was bad. He had to get a burger & shake at McDonald's because... More

Found this place after walking around Pike Place to discover all the eating places have long queues, even for breakfast! So here's a really short write up: The good: 1) Friendly service - no fuss, easy, and friendly works every time for me! 2) Good selection for breakfast 3) The coffee The bad: 1) None I can think of!

My family and I have eaten here together at least 30 times, and we keep returning. The menu changes relatively often, so I won't talk much about that, except to note that the small plates are excellent and the entrees are usually quite good, as well. Steaks, mussels, pasta, cheeseburgers, and vegetarian dishes make it possible for everyone in your... More
