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 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

I don’t recall a hostess being so disinterested in me. No smile, no engagement, no way would she be working for me! The waiter was a little cool also but the French Onion Soup and Steak Frites and a good bottle of Saint Julien ‘Gloria’ made it all better. To the restaurant’s credit, our first bottle of Gloria was not... More

We just returned from a brief stay in Seattle. Seattle has an abundance of wonderful restaurants, but this is not one of them. We had dinner here our last night in town. The atmosphere is very casual and they try hard to make it seem like a French bistro, but the tables are crowded together so it's not a place... More

We visited this restaurant at the end of a very long day. I found that the menu didn't seem to have many entree choices. I got the french onion soup which the soup was good but there was too much bread in the bowl. Also had the half chicken entree which was pretty dry but the potatoes were good. Overall... More
