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.

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

Are you visiting Seattle? Do you want one of the best meals you will find in Seattle? Then make reservations here. Reservations can be very difficult to get since the restaurant is quite small but they are worth the effort. This restaurant has many awesome qualities but it's most important is it's food. The food is Italian style and intended... More

This is a great place to enjoy a meal[s] with family and friends. Meals are served "family" style with small (generally) plates but enough to sare for four people, if you have more they will increase serving size to meet your needs. Staff was friendly, knowlegable and efficient. I would add two items to their menu; a pizza dis that... More
