Loved the food! It was fresh, seasonal, and had interesting flavors. They have great outdoor seating which was perfect specially with a baby. The indoor portion of the cafe looked just lovely and perfect for a romantic dinner!

Boat St. Cafe is located in a coworking space in an otherwise pretty quiet area of town. We gave it a try because it was near our hotel, and were very happy we did. They were accommodating of an infant in a stroller, and offered a diverse and delicious menu. We had a couple of different salads, roasted broccoli, and... More

Fantastic food, great service and very romantic. (The romantic aesthetics are light and airy rather than dark and seductive, if that makes sense.) We sat outside on their patio and had a fabulous dinner. My partner has brunch there often and says the brunch is fantastic too. Might be hard to find if you're from out of town and driving... More

I had been hearing of this restaurant for some time, so I thought I'd check it out on this trip. The food was pretty good, and the service was adequate. What was a little weird was that we tried to get reservations for 6 but couldn't get them until 7, yet when we showed up at 6:30 it was empty... More

You need to go down a pathway or stairs to get to this place tucked in, not to far from the Seattle Sculpture Park. The salmon was good, simply prepared and nice portion. Good service. Relaxed atmosphere.

We visited on a Tuesday night and the restaurant wasn't that busy, but that was okay. (We had our hotel make reservations, but they had no record of it. Not sure who dropped the ball.) We had a lovely meal (Pork Chop, squid, Clams, and the special appy of the day). The dessert was amazing - bread pudding. Very tasty.... More

We have been hearing about the cafe for a long time, and finally got there on June 24 for lunch with friends. Really charming setting, nice service. But lunch menu is limited. I had the pot au feu, which was basically tasteless, meat marbled with gristle; yes, I know this is a classic French dish, but in late June this... More

Very odd location sort of tucked away with no view to speak and difficult parking. Appetizers were good. Excellent pate. Pickled plate was a bit too pickled/sweet. My vegetarian entree was the worst fine dining entree I've had in recent memory (I'm not a vegatarian either) Some sort of bland cubes of I can't remember over a pile of mushy... More

Boat Street Cafe is a hidden gem in Lower Queen Anne. If you don't know where to look, you will easily bypass this great little restaurant. I can here for dinner with a few friends. The service was prompt and courteous. We asked for, and received recommendations on both the appetizers and entree. Our meal was expertly prepared, and the... More
