My spouse and I dined at Sitka & Spruce on a Sunday afternoon for brunch in early August 2014. We made a reservation on-line using the Open Table reservation system. 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

This is not just a place to eat or drink - it is a fun place to walk around and watch the fresh farm to table meat being butchered, try the good quantity of wines and beer and cocktails (the staff created a unique cocktail for my wife), great sandwiches, wonderful cheese selection and salads. Friendly staff, great variety of... More

This was our first dinner on our Seattle trip. Every thing about the meals was wonderful. We started with an heirloom tomato salad with anchovy and eggplant. The salad had nice acidity and balance to make it lively. Next we had the chanterelle dish with grilled bread and an egg yolk. This dish appears on their menu most often and... More

OK - -this restaurant came highly recommended, and the food was really good. But Seattle in the summer can be hot and Seattle-ites are in denial about the need for AC. We were sitting at a table in the evening sun (yes - blazing sun at 9PM) and it was about 90 degrees with no AC and a mini-fan blowing... More

Eclectic, authentic, memorable. The night I had dinner there they had a plate of chanterelles, snap peas, fino & raw egg yolk on grilled bread that was nothing short of amazing. Still daydreaming about it....

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
