I was in Alaska for the first time and stayed a week in Sitka. What a wonderful place! Great views all day long, eagles and ravens abound, a magnificent trail system right near town (no need for a car), and very nice and genuine people everywhere. It made me want to move to town! I hung out at the Bayview... More

Uniquely prepared foods and smallish portions that are quite filling and a bit pricey. But such unique and special ingredients. Attentive service and nice explanation of all the unique ingredients. The building the restaurant is located in, is a unique combination of purveyors, cafe, wine store, gifts, flowers and more. Nice setting.

We were lucky enough to call for a reservation just after a cancellation, otherwise would not have been able to enjoy this unique restaurant. On Sunday evening, they had only 2 entrees -- a pork dish and halibut -- but both, and the appetizers and side dishes, were fabulous! The structure of the restaurant contributes to its uniqueness. We sat... More

Very friendly staff, who were happy to go through everything in the menu with us. Food was interesting, fresh and delicious. The vibe is very industrial/relaxed, but these people are very serious about their food (without taking themselves too seriously!). I love the central kitchen table that becomes a shared dining table. This isn't an "open kitchen" – you're IN... More

Lovely setting, lovely to see the preparation of our food in this uniquely designed mix of industrial and kitchen and the Hamptom's. We had been in Melrose Market earlier in the day for a great sandwich and to go to Button Home. We saw the restaurant prepping for dinner and were intrigued. I called for reservations but they only do... More

Sitke & Spruce came highly recommended by a Seattle local and didn't disappoint. A very creative selection of starters, small plates and main courses, served by attentive and friendly staff. Another bonus for the solo business traveller diner is a good selection of wines by the glass, although I would have liked to see more local and Oregon wines. That... More

We just came out of a show at the Paramount and walked up the hill to the Melrose Market where the Sitka and Spruce restaurant is located. This was communal dining at its finest. We sat at the long table directly connected to the kitchen worktops so were treated to a view of the chefs preparing ours and everyone else's... More

Our trio thoroughly enjoyed our dinner, including trying a wine from Hungary that we would never have found on our own. We are BIG on dessert, especially bc we were dining to celebrate a birthday. The menu was very disappointing in that regard. Panna cotta, cheesecake (egg nog flavor), ice cream and cheese plates. We aren't vegan so the dairy... More

I love the care that goes into the food here. It was a bit shocking that a beet salad would run $19 for the large plate version, but it was also several cuts above my expectations. Too bad the cooking fireplace wasn't lit for lunch, I would have loved that. Foodie heaven if you love vegetables.
