The number one draw to this restaurant was the view of the Seattle skyline over the water. Beautiful during the day, but gorgeous at night! It was chilly the night we were there, but they had fire pits going, so even in November it’s worth...More

This is a seafood restaurant and the fish did not disappoint us. The wood fired trout was the special and it seemed like everyone ordered it. For those who wanted protein, the lamb shoulder was also very good. We can in November, so while there...More

This is a great restaurant with very good food. The setting is great and you can sit outside with view on the water. The interior is nice and trendy but the food is the main attraction...really good... especially the sea food... Book it and enjoy!!

Enjoyed a lovely evening with friends outside on the deck. Fortunately they had a reservation, as those outside seats are at a premium on a sunny day! Not real comfortable as in benches and picnic tables but they can accommodate more people that way in...More

I love the cocktail with homemade pepper butters. The food was very good but less than I expected in regards to flavors and portion sizing at this price level. 3 people tried the halibut and all three portions suffered considerably in size. Btw they add...More

Though we barely had an average experience here three years ago, we agreed to return recently with two friends, who really wanted to dine at Westward. We found the restaurant to be extremely loud and the menu rather limited. Portions, even our main course, arrived...More

Westward is a water-inspired full service restaurant and bar located on North Lake Union. Chef Jack Rodgers leads the team in new directions, striking a delicious balance between contemporary Northwest and Mediterranean flavors. The approach is natural and continually evolving, reflecting the simplicity of great products, fresh ingredients and the changing seasons. The wood-burning oven is at the heart of the kitchen and is an integral element in the restaurant. Each seat has unique views of the lake and the city and a large deck, fire pit and beach area provides space to sit outside and sip cocktails in the summer, or snuggle in the restaurant's wool blankets in the winter. The 150 ft. Dock provides boat parking for a meal or an afternoon whiskey. The menu includes imaginative, Mediterranean-influenced fare and delightful small bites.
