Half Chicken

This restaurant always seems to be quiet but the chicken is great and the staff knowledgable and friendly (if your waitress offers a wine recommendation take notice - she has excellent taste).

We eat here nearly every time we come to Seattle! Never anything we DONT like, and their Happy Hour is one of the best we've ever encountered! In fact, we often make their HH our "dinner!" Lots of fine wines and generous "small plates" to try, and I guarantee you'll be surprised at the value! And if you decide to... More

This was definitely one of the best restaurants I went to when I was in Seattle. I tried the soupe à l'oignon and the lamb burger with asparagus which was all exquisite! The hand made ice-cream was a perfect cherry on the top, absolutely delicious! They have a really nice collection of wines and spirits too.

This is our second time doing brunch at Cafe Campagne, the first being in January of this year. My son is really into all things French, so he wanted to check it out. We were definitely won over! Both of our visits here were perfect. The wait to get a table was painless; you give them your cell number and... More

We had eaten at Campagne twice on two trips 10 years ago. I loved it both times and was looking forward to going back, but unfortunately, it has closed and the cafe is still there. It was restaurant week & 3 courses were very reasonable. We ordered something else because that was what we wanted. I gave this a. 3.5... More

There was nothing wrong with this restaurant - Cafe Campagne was well situated, nice ambiance, cent menu selections, food prepared well. But there was nothing that even got it to rise to the level of "very good". The dishes were not inventive. One might have expected more fresh and flavorful produce being steps away from Pike Place Market, but the... More

Even before I moved to Seattle I had friends that took me to Cafe Campagne for dinner. Twenty years later I'm still going. The setting and location are really great. The food and wine are very good. The Moules Frites (mussels & fries) are always a great choice.

We called in for a quick lunch and sat outside on the sunniest day of the spring season. We were seated and served right away. The meal was good and a decent value, and the staff pleasant and attentive.

I was most impressed with the amount of time between the 3 courses. It was perfect timing; as I finished the soup they weren't shoving the next meal down my throat. The second course was the curry-fennel and omg it was delicious. Lastly was the creme-brûlée!!!!!!! Perfect! They didn't try to rush me out like most restaurants do to single... More

My husband and I spend a weekend in Seattle for his birthday and I wanted to take him to an excellent French dinner. I had heard good things about Cafe Campagne, but we were underwhelmed by our experience there. The food was okay, nothing especially memorable or amazing. The service was good but not great. Overall it was okay, but... More
