Great food and service--very overpriced wine and dessert could have been better

The food is quite excellent here--we had the sweet potato, calamari, pasta etc. All very good. Very good service too. Two problems demote to 4 stars instead of 5: most importantly, the wine is incredibly overpriced! We paid $38 for a HALF bottle of a Piedmont Italian wine that wasn't good--too... read more

The four of us had an excellent meal here. With the small tastes menu we were able to try many different dishes and each one was distinctive and delicious. Executive Chef David Glass has elevated the bar for dining establishments in the entire Seattle area. The Hamachi Crudo prepared with kumquats was very unusual and while most of the preparations...

Small, intimate, date-night atmosphere. It is close quarters, so be ready to mingle. The food is divine. You may not know what you ordered, but it won't matter when you start to devour it! We had the squash, and two different pasta dishes and they were all wonderful and fresh. We enjoyed a bottle of "the Chief" wine, too!

I had heard great things about this restaurant and it was excellent! From the initial greeting, to walking out the door, we were taken care of. The food was fantastic, the server was flawless and helped with food and wine recommendations and paced the evening perfectly. We went there before a play since we were in that area and would...

Small but great ambiance. Excellent service. Great bartender. The butternut squash pasta was out of this world! Fun spot in the lovely Queen Anne Hill area.

I finally visited How to Cook a Wolf after wanting to try it for a very long time. Now I am sad I waited so long!! The drinks were unique and delicious, the plates were exceptional, and the pasta was some of the best I've ever had. For the plates, we tried the Salumi Board, the Polenta Fritters, and the... More

Cozy environment with wooden deco, nice crowd, yummy food. From entrée to deserts, we love them all. No matter of just two of u spending a evening with good meal, or a group with long table. They can accommodate your need.

As a birthday present to myself I booked an early table at How to Cook a Wolf after hearing about it in the media for a while. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to park on Queen Anne Hill (always a consideration in Seattle) and how low-key the place is. A lovely warm wood interior and cozy... More

Located in the Upper Queen Anne shopping area, it's an interesting and warm facility although small so small groups are best. It's also recommended to make a reservation. There is a large wine list and a fully stocked bar. The menu is family style although one plate would be sufficient for a meal. They offer a wide range of food... More
