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

Four of us Chicago foodies were staying in Seattle for one night before heading out on an Alaskan cruise. When we asked around, we heard that Sitka & Spruce was a "must do." So, we made reservations. We were very happy that we did! First of all, the restaurant is in a really hip, trendy neighborhood. Great for exploring, grabbing... More

Impressive/creative food in a very unique/cool space, plus excellent service -- it doesn't get any better than this! We really enjoyed the morels, roasted cauliflower (wow!) and Squid+ Garbanzos, but every bite of our 6 tapas-style dishes was outstanding! We highly recommend sitting at the chef's table -- while it is communal and our meal started with two noisy neighbors... More

This lovely restaurant has an excellent ambience (inside an indoor market), with fresh, delicious food, inspired menus, yummy cocktails, and great service. The bread, for the gluten-ous, is DIVINE (locally sourced, not made in house). The desserts were equally wonderful. High marks for a fun lunch experience!

Great food and bright atmosphere. Innovative menu items. Inside the Melrose Market, a building full of foodie gems, this restaurant is a pearl. Small, so plan accordingly, but like other Matt Dillon restaurants, superb flavors, beautifully presented.

We couldn't get a dinner reservation here on our weekend visit but did manage to come for brunch. Glad we did. The space is so pretty during the day with tons of natural light I'm glad we got to see it in daylight. I love the market like space, it's always fun to stroll through fabulous butchers, cheese, wine &... More

My business partner and I were attending a conference in the convention center and our local host suggested Sitka & Spruce--a walkable distance from the center. The plates are small and intended to be shared. We enjoyed a terrific salad (dressing was perfecto) with fresh mint. My partner had a poached egg on greens and I had roasted turnips with... More

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.
