We recently relocated to the Seattle area and this restaurant was on our list to visit. We saw their $30 prix fixe menu for Dine Around Seattle that included vegetarian options for every course and that prompted us to go. I am veggie; my husband is not.
Parking is easy- valet or self park nearby. Beautiful location, right on the lake. On a Sunday night, we had a table by the window with a perfect view.
Service was friendly and professional. The food was just terrific-- creative and very satisfying.
We also loved that they have an extensive list of wines by the glass, and you can order 1 ounce, 3 ounce, or 6 ounce pours, priced accordingly. How great is that? We asked our waiter Joey if he could recommend wines to match our courses, and he recommended wines we would never have picked on our own, explaining why he selected each one. All were very good; one was drop dead fantastic. Best part? The wines he recommended were reasonably priced and truly complemented each course.
We would go back to this restaurant for many occasions (we have already decided to go back with some friends). We probably wouldn't go here for a very intimate, romantic dinner. Even though the view is wonderful, it is a little on the noisy side for this type of restaurant.
ps. My dollar sign ratings are based on the restaurant's usual pricing; the Dining Around Menu was an excellent value.
