We stayed at the Inn at the Market so the Pink Door is just a foot steps away. You have to go thru the little alley to get to the restaurant. Made a reservation on a wrong date but we got lucky! They were so...nice to be able to squeeze us in that night. Very romantic atmosphere and I see why there r mostly couples there. We had their braised ribs and Lasagna and their garlic breads and all were delish! Must try if you are in Seattle! Gotta be quick with reservation tho as it filled up quick!More

Slow service and small portions made this a disappointing choice for us. Think it relies on it's reputation as I couldn't find anything to rave about.

The hype might have been Covid tempered but our meal was just very good and not the greatness we were expecting. The place was dark and circus decorated. The music was old opera and servers very cautious. The fish was tasty and the gnocchi was...not there. The place was missing something?More

RESERVATIONS are absolutely required. It’s across from Kells (my favorite Irish bar), so not a bad location. Very nice view of the water (depends on where they seat you), and pretty low-key. I swear that the pasta on the ragu was made a few hours...before it got cooked, melted in my mouth. Delicious pasta, my goodness it was to die for. My steak came out great, juicy and flavorful. A must, but better book fast because reservations go fast...More

My go to spot in Downtown Seattle. I have been here every time I visit Seattle. I have had a few of the other dishes but the lasagne is my favorite! It melts in your mouth

One of the best places to eat in the city, I can't praise the food and service here enough. It's the best Italian restaurant I've ever eaten at, I'm glad that they are still open for delivery, though the experience of dining in is so...much better - the lighting and décor make the food taste even better.More

Always happy~ lasagne , mussels and clams my personal favorites. At this challenging time I purchased a Gift Certificate...to use in the future when they are open againMore

The atmosphere, entertainment, and food are all on point in this crazy hole-in the wall locals favorite. Please go here anytime of day. Try to get reservations 5-7 days in advance to get good seats. Get a seat near the bar where you can see...the show.More

I am so glad we got to go before they temporarily closed down. For our one dinner in Seattle, we chose The Pink Door. I cannot recommend it more. The atmosphere was adorable, the food was delicious and the wine was amazing. Everything was perfect!

I was SO excited about this place! Read the reviews, and booked my reservations a month in advance. I consider myself a “foodie”, and saved my calories all day... We had reservations for a 5:30 seating, and checked in on time. The hostess asked us...upon checking in if we were exhibiting any cold or flu symptoms (because of the corona virus outbreak). We of course said no. The restaurant seemed bigger on the inside than what seemed so by the front entrance, and we were seated at a table toward the back of the place (closer to a water view). The menu was simple. We started with a bottle of Prosecco, and they brought bread to our table. We shared a Caesar salad (the best part of the dinner!) We all 3 ordered different entrees. One cioppino, one lasagne, and one linguine and clam dish. I tried all 3, and none were “stellar”. Nothing on the dessert menu appealed to us, so we all had a limoncello and called it good. Our server was non attentive, which was very unfortunate. Seemed that she was giving most of her attention to a table of 8 gentlemen seated beside us. With so many incredible restaurants in Seattle, I doubt I would go back or recommend it to my foodie friends.More
