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
