Great wine, delicious nouveau cuisine, and lovely local place for a special occasion where you can dress casually.

Pair never disappoints. I go there most often for their fantastic happy hour. The moules and frites are deelicious! Gougeres, cheese fondue, sliders... how can you go wrong? Nice selection of wine and cocktails as well. Dinner is also excellent. And the banana bread pudding - wow! Only downside is that it can get a bit noisy.

Well worth checking out, this bar diner is very popular in a nice old building with a great select menu and very good choice of wines available

Visiting my niece in the upper U district and walked out for a bite to eat. Found this lovely little place quite by chance and decided to try it. Small and quaint but they were able to seat us without having a reservation. Seemed like a date place as it was mostly couples holding hands and staring in each others... More

Visiting Seattle at the end of April, I had the chance to be there while the ``restaurants week`` was happening, after looking up menus online, we decided to go at Pair since it looked very good and different! And it was! From the cheese fondue to the perfectly cooked fish, amazing crême brulée and tasty mussels, the overall experience was... More

That's the way I felt when we visited Pair on an early Saturday evening for dinner. You enter the restaurant and it's like being welcomed into the kitchen that was made into a dining room complete with a rustic feel. LOVED the bar right in the middle and the limited seating made me feel like I was one of the... More

Super cute place with rustic furnishings invoke memories of a small bistro in rural France. Very nice service and the small plates were so tasty! The salad was super fresh and the short ribs delightful as was the lamb. There wasn't one dish I didn't love. Can't wait to go back!

Pricey but popular. Small portions leave one a bit hungry - which often leads to ordering more dishes and before you know it, your bill is quite high. order with care.

We came for happy hour, which is a good way to avoid overspending. We arrived right at 5:00 and the restaurant was pretty full by 6. The food was all very good and the service was amazingly fast and attentive. My sidecar was definitely not as good as I expected (it wasn't BAD, just not balanced right) and I wasn't... More

We live very close to Pair, and it is one of our favorite restaurants in Seattle. You can design your own dinner by choosing from a list of small plates that are great for sharing, and their meals are made from seasonally fresh ingredients. The mushroom risotto, beef brisket with horseradish creme fraiche, and the potato leek gratin are some... More
