Anthony Bourdain spoke highly of Sitka & Spruce on his 24 Hour Lay-Over show, so I thought I'd try it. It was one of the most creative meals I've had in years and the ingredients were fresh and cooked perfectly. I had the stuffed delicata squash, pork sausage, cured yolk & creme fraiche for a starter which truly blew me... More

This is a great lunch restaurant. The atmosphere is rustic but modern. The style is family style. The food is very well prepared, fresh and the choice of ingredients very good. I would go back there for sure,

I was amazed with the selection of excellent quality vegetables and the portion sizes were great so that we could share a few different things. The beets were amazing and when I created a bite with all the components I was truly impressed. Would be happy to return again soon, excellent meal!

The small menu looks simple but each dish is layered and complex. Dining solo could only try a couple of dishes. A carrot and yogurt dish was full of bright sharp flavours. Soft scrambled eggs with shaved mushrooms and mustard seed was much more subtle but full of depth. Small but very nice wine by glass selection. The servers were... More

Enjoyed the food because they try to use what's in season and use unusual ingredients to prepare meat and vegetables.

I was split between Bar Sajor and Sitka & Spruce, and went for Sitka. The space itself is pretty intimate, shabby chic rustic, communal feel which was nice and warm. The open kitchen space was cool and the focus on local and seasonal was what I wanted. The food itself was good, I went in with high expectations and actually... More

Sitka & Spruce is open for lunch on weekdays, brunch on weekends, and dinner daily. Parking is available on the street, or in a nearby parking lot or garage (such... More

Sitka & Spruce, at the back of the market, makes use of its industrial space well; softened with white-painted exposed brick, raw timber, fresh flowers and dainty flickering candles in glass votives. And with a focus on the fab produce of the Northwest, each ingredient shines no matter how it’s prepared. When bread is as good as this it deserves... More

The food is far more interesting than the menu makes it out to be. Every dish I've ever had is simple, but with wonderful, unique flavors. The quality of the food raises the bar on simple dishes like omelets or salads. You are not just getting a soup or an omelet or something else, you're able to enjoy a terrific... More
