UNIMPRESSED! They were way understaffed as the hostess was also the waitress, bartender, bus person, and you get the picture. Food took too long to arrive and they ran out of their namesake, the Branzino. If your restaurant is named for its best dish, you should never run out. Or at least you should account for enough NOT to run... More

We went back to Branzino tonight. It retains its comfortable charm and casual elegance. Wines had changed, as expected, but they still had 6 reds and 6 whites by the glass with 6 different varietals represented in each. Our greeting was again friendly and informal and we again got Paige as our server. She is a treat. We also went... More

A wonderful evening at a small neighborhood restaurant that had a great staff, delicious food and a comfortable setting. It was a plus that we could walk back to our hotel from the restaurant - all downhill. Will love going back.

We went here for dinner last night to celebrate my birthday. We did not have reservations, but they sat us at a table in the bar even though there were tables open in the restaurant the whole time we were there. We are early diners and enjoyed the table until a large, loud group came in. We had a hard... More

Branzino gets 5 out of 5 because it does, very well, what it sets out to do. It fits into the Belltown scene as a "neighborhood" Italian/seafood restaurant, offering a one page menu [6 starters, 7 small plates, 7 entrees, and 4 pizzas] and a one page wine list [6-7 different varietal of reds by the glass and 5 whites...

We had dinner last night before seeing something at Benaroya Hall. Our waitress Paige was first-rate. The restaurant staff and management are very nice. We got stuck in traffic on I-5 so we were 30 minutes late to our reservation. When we realized we were going to be late, I called was told that it was fine and to come... More

We went here with a groupon and truly enjoyed our experience. We started with the brussel sprouts and the meatballs which were both delicious. For our main course we had the Bolognese which was amazing and the chicken with incredible gnocchi. The chicken was cooked just right. This place really makes delicious pasta and I would go back for it... More

This is a quaint and beautiful restaurant perfect for a date night Reliable service and delicious food. Both meals my husband and I shared are some of the best and most creative Italian dishes we have tried. The spinach gnocchi was perfect in texture and taste. Only complaint was the small portion sizes for all three courses. If you are... More

Very pleasant atmosphere. Noise level is quite acceptable for a private conversation. Wine list is rich but wines offered are quite expensive (Could not find a red below $39/bottle... A Barbera d'Asti that proved to be delicious). Good food (I personally recommend the pork chop with string beans with morrels -- outstanding). Portions are not large, but plenty sufficient, given...
