Delightful Dinner

We enjoyed our dinner at Sitka & Spruce and also loved the atmosphere. It is a small restaurant with the diners and the kitchen all in the same room. Fun! Good cocktails. One of us had the rabbit, which was excellent, and the other had the halibut, which was also good. It was a great find, and... read more

Unfortunately our dining companions spent an eventful couple of hours in the bathroom after eating the pickled veg dish! Setting and ambiance - great. Food - disappointing. I like unusual combinations of ingredients but it was a bit hit and miss at Sitka: The egg/mushroom/brioche was delightfully rich and yummy but the table gave a unanimous thumbs down verdict on...

We had a Sunday lunch at S&S,four adults and two children (6 and 8). Web site looked good and another guide recommended it. Conclusion- we have been there now twice-the first and the last time. Some reasons; Service friendly but not well informed Menu limited in scope especially for Sunday lunch (it claims to serve brunch) No children dishes (per... More

We walked in off the street completely unexpecting the experience we had, which was quite fun not knowing how a restaurant will be until you experience it first hand. Including the type of food they offer. The building and entrance looked cozy on a cold winters night. With no reservations we were told we could sit at the bar, and... More

My family came here for my sister's birthday dinner. We basically ordered everything on the menu. Unfortunately, only a few dishes really wowed us. The rest was just pretty good. We expected a lil bit more from here, but I'd be interested in trying the venue again with a different menu.

Always interesting, a great space, excellent service. Smart cooking. Great cocktails and wine; superb bread. If there's a weakness it's that -- like its sister restaurant the Corson Building -- Sitka and Spruce has an experimental edge, trying out new dishes and flavors. So go with a few people, try a bunch of small plates, don't expect every dish to... More

Not worth the hype. More for hipster dufus types who are wanting on taste buds. Coho Salmon dinner was a mishmash of flavours, The dish at best was palatable. The lamb with chick peas and quince was a disaster. Chick peas are difficult to combine with other foods. Even more so when cooked in quasi Indian curry with cumin. Nothing... More

This is a farm to table, earthy place, that seems to be missing the mark. I went with two friends who live in the seattle area. It was highly recommended by a 'foodie' so we thought it was a good call. The atmosphere is open, reused material, a bit hipster, earthy vibe. We were seated immediately with reservations, which was... More

A warm welcome, thoughtful recommendations in regard to the menu and first rate food and drink make this a perfect place for a relaxed weekend brunch. We ate delicious cheese, a dish of biscuits and gravy which was amazingly good, baked eggs with duck and a wonderful tarte tatin. The brunch cocktails were also great. We couldn't have been happier... More

This farm to table, open kitchen restaurant was absolutely delicious. My favorite was the bread with butter from London and the fresh tomato plate with basil, oh my goodness so good. I wish I lived closer.
