Seattle is the home of relaxed ambiance and wonderful food. Sikta & Spruce is a textbook example. Certainly not a fancy setting, but you will walk out after dinner wondering when you can return for another meal there.

Quite the culinary experience in Seattle. I really can't remember specifically what I ate, but can say it was a transformative experience. The menu changes, as any good restaurant would do, but everything was so fresh and flavorful, I wouldn't hesitate to return. We were a party of 4 at the "communal table" and had a fantastic assortment of bread... More

I was ready to love this place, had read a ton about it, was in town for one night from Boston and made reservations far in advance. Sitka & Spruce has a lot going for it - great atmosphere and location, we got to sit at the chef's table overlooking the homey kitchen, super friendly staff, solid wine list and... More

If you're a foodie, you just have to give this place a shot. Expect extremely creative and unlikely combinations on your plate.

Really unusual but delicious and creative dishes. Loved the warm cucumber and lemon dish, great heirloom tomato dish. All were excellent. Would definitely recommend. Cocktails were excellent as well.

Sitka and Spruce was an easy walk from my hotel and has a very nice market outside it during the day. Everything I ate was very good, especially the pickled plate (a pickled egg, homemade kimchee, pickled beets, and pickles). For my entree, I got a charred broccoli salad with butter poached oyster mushrooms, and almonds. It was very rich... More

Every plate we tried was amazing. The way they put a few flavors together that pair perfectly is excellent. We tried things we wouldn't have chosen at other places and were greatly impressed wit the result. It was nice to go on a Monday night so it was quieter than normal. The dining space is cozy and well designed, it's... More

Brunch with in-laws. We table shared almost everything on the menu. Everything was extremely original, fresh, and well executed. We wanted to order a second round of dishes it was so delicious. The house made ginger beer is outstanding, wish they had some dark rum in house!

I've always found it an interesting observation, that whenever you throw a party in a home, inevitably it seems that everyone winds up in the kitchen. There's something inherently comfortable about that setting. That's what this place feels like. Our family was in Seattle on the kick-off of a family holiday in the U.S. We'd never been to Seattle before... More

Awesome restaurant though getting a table can be fairly difficult. We actually visited on a Monday when the restaurant is run by one of the chefs as a taco restaurant. These are not your typical tacos though. Each was a lovingly crafted explosion of flavors. The best was the shredded pork, though all the meat.based ones were excellent. The cactus... More
