I would recommend booking at least several days to a week in advance for a routine weekend. I loved the quirky antique decor. There is no signage by the door so look for the address and a light pink door. Once inside, there is a flight of steps going down to the restaurant. I am not sure if a person... More

Don't look for a sign along Post Alley to help you find this gem, just look for the pink door! The restaurant is below ground (with high windows at sidewalk level). Atmosphere is charming and food is amazing. Our table tried the Caesar salad, beet with blue cheese salad, then butternut squash ravioli, chiopino and short ribs. Every dish was... More

Food was great. Our server rarely checked on us. We would have ordered more wine and food, but he didn't ask or come by in a timely manor. We had to ask for the dessert menu! Unique place.,

I normally don't go to Italian restaurants for dinner, but my friends wanted to go to The Pink Door, and it was one of the few places that served late dinner. We made reservations for 10:30 p.m. The cabaret was going on in the bar, but we were seated in the restaurant area. The cabaret sounded pretty fun. The atmosphere... More

This is a one-of-a-kind fabulous, quirky little restaurant; a real find. We sat outside for lunch and the place was packed. We just loved it. It is certainly not to be missed if you are visiting Seattle.

Outstanding Italian cuisine with great service. If you like live music, try to sit in the lounge area where local artists and bands play on most nights.

We decided to go here to celebrate my friend's birthday because she said she loved the food here. The online reviews seemed pretty promising and we love trying new places, so of course we were all about it! The experience was a disappointment to say the least. We didn't plan our visit during a burlesque show, so my review is... More

The Pink Door in Post Alley, near Pike Place Market is one of the hidden gems in Seattle. Having survived a couple of decade in a crowded restaurant market, The Pink Door has remained a consistently excellent restaurant. If I have out of town guest I usually take them here. Second only to the food The Pink Door has great... More

This a trendy restaurant & their prices show it. The entrance isn't well marked & you can easily walk by it, thinking it's just another door in an alley. The food is really good, flavorful & you can tell it's fresh pasta & cheese used. I felt I was paying for the trendy part of the establishment & not the... More

I mentioned I was going to Seattle on vacation to a couple I met at a party and they immediately told me I had to go to The Pink Door and well known 'secret' restaurant in an alley near Pike Place Market. The restanrant had no sign, but it does indeed have a pink door. I read a few reviews... More
