Staff very patient to my questions (because we had some preferences), extremely friendly. Food variety is right balanced for vegetarians and meal lovers. Quality is okay.

My sister and I ate here on our last morning in Seattle - the service was fairly quick and the breakfast was very good for the value. Nice little restaurant if you discover there is actually no complimentary breakfast at your hotel, as we did!

We were a little disappointed with the limited menu, but the food was very good and the waitress was pleasant and attentive. We dined for dinner - the restaurant was pretty empty.

We were staying at the Holiday Inn Express for a few days. First night in town had dinner at this place since it was next to the hotel and we were tired. The food was mediocre and service was super slow even though we were pretty much the only table at the restaurant. The drinks were good.

A quick bite, a complete meal, or drinks and appetizers, all are available at this convenient location. Food was very good and a great value. The bartender/waiter was excellent and attentive. Very professional.

We had a large group of people spontaneously deciding to go for dinner and drinks. Given the location, we decided on this restaurant. It was closed at the time and was only opening at 4:30 PM. We happily waited outside until the store manager flipped the sign and opened the door. From the moment we walked in, it felt like... More

I had 2 dinners at this restaurant. The meatloaf meal was great. The appetizer (baba ganoush) I had as a meal not so much. The manger came my table when she saw I had not eaten. When I told her what I felt about the taste she took it off of our bill. My husband was happy with all the... More

The people at this restaurant are very nice, and its menu is great. Customer service is topnotch. Todd, the bartender, is on point.

The selection was very limited but after ordering the food it arrived quickly and was really good. The staff was very polite and friendly. The atmosphere at the restaurant was quiet.

Went to the Emerald bar & grill for dinner, because of its convenience to the Holiday Inn that I was staying at. That was a mistake never to be repeated. My coke was completely flat, and my fries were as cold as can be. As bad as the food was though, the service was worse. I was finished my meal... More
