Not amazing but good

We enjoyed our visit to How to Cook a Wolf. The food was very good but not amazing. The service was great and it is definitely a cool setting for a quiet dinner. Not a place I need to return to but glad that we tried it.

What a great meal. Unique flavors and cozy atmosphere. The neighborhood is fun too. I was in town for the weekend with a girlfriend and this was our best meal. Make your reservations and enjoy.

How to Cook A Wolf is quickly becoming our "go- to" spots at the top of Queen Anne Ave.. In a word, it is delicious in its simplicity. The appetizer small plates are meals in their own right and the pasta dishes change -- each being better than the last. Friendly staff and a small but tasty wine selection makes... More

My husband and I were visiting from Texas and we try to avoid "tourist traps". We made reservations here as it was in a "neighborhood" vs downtown Seattle and close to Kerry Park which we visited. Reservations are a must, even during the week. We loved the intimate atmosphere and service was top notch. The polenta fritters are amazing!!!!! We... More

My husband and I ate at How To Cook a Wolf on the first night of our vacation in Seattle. It was recommended to us by friends and let me tell you, we were not disappointed. We were greeted by a most friendly staff and served by a knowledgable waitress. We loved the cozy neighborhood vibe. Menu is seasonal, but... More

Came here on the suggestion of a friend and had a great time. Reservations should be called in ahead of time but we were able to get a seat at the bar and eat there. The clams, beet salad and the asparagus were fantastic and the wine that went with it on the suggestion of Joey the server/bartender was excellent.... More

We came here before the ballet and had an amazing meal of pasta and salad. My sister in law had called ahead and they had some gluten free pasta ready for her which I tried and couldn't even tell it was GF. The waitstaff was attentive and atmosphere was very nice.

The bruschetta was tasty. The cannoli were delicious. The gnocchi and the pork tenderloin were delicious. The salami board was very good.

Nothing less than 5 stars ! Three of us for dinner on Saturday night --- you definitely need reservations (singles maybe able to tuck into bar, but that was packed too) Fabulous service, small but diverse menu. At the recommendation of staff we ordered family style - one appetizer, two pastas, one meat dish. (Gem lettuce, two Bucatini and one... More
