Everything we ordered was to die for. All fresh, great flavors, and friendly staff. We had the best time and look forward to our next visit. It really is the place to take your out of town friends circa great night.

You can tell that you are in for a different dining experience when the chef's forearm has a tatoo that is the french culinary phrase "mise en place" (putting in order, ready to assemble.) Our table for 3 was right next to the open kitchen which gave us a ring side view of everything that came out ready to be... More

We picked this from Trip Advisor at the end of a busy day's sightseeing in Seattle. Matt's obviously takes advantage of the produce from downstairs, but that doesn't explain the slick operation of cocktails, exquisite food combinations and perfect cooking. Service was fantastic, and the scallops - total taste explosion

Went on a Saturday night with my husband and we were very disappointed. We were recommended to go here by several people but the food was average and very expensive and the service was sub-par. We would have been better off going any other place to get our seafood kick. As one of our major meals in Seattle it was... More

Had highly anticipated visiting this restaurant. Had been told that the view was "amazing" and that's true as long as you are sitting on the side of the restaurant (four tables) that doesn't face the old buildings across the way. Lucky them. The appetizers were very good. The salad was meh...hard to find the cheese that was supposed to be... More

Arrive early if you do not have a reservation. Opt for the bar if you are alone or just a couple if they have no seating in the main dining room as they offer the same food offerings. Their bloody marys are delicious. The food is excellent, prices are priced well for the quality of food you get. Their servers... More

super fresh seafood, inventive preparations, excellent service. seafood stew (signature dish) was a large portion of salmon, halibut, clams, mussels, and scallops in yummy curry broth. clams with fried pickled okra and tasso ham was exceptional.

Located on the second floor of one of the market buildings across from the main Pike Market, the decor is stark attempting to be "loft like". The open kitchen is a nice touch. The food was very good but there was much too much pork on the menu, either as a main course, a side or an accompaniment. The wild... More
