The place is simple and small but atmospheric. The French menus are short. The food extraordinary. Rainbow trout cooked in parchment with dill and scalloped potatoes! Forrest mushrooms with garlic and a six minute egg. $20.

I was in Seattle on business and headed to Le Caviste, which was relatively close to my hotel, for a late dinner. What a great spot--small, authentic, and not touristy. It's a little slice of Paris in the middle of downtown Seattle. The menu is...More

We happened to walk by this place on our way to another restaurant. We walked in because my husband was frustrated with my inability to figure out my Google map. What an amazing place carefully hosted by a gentlemen who knew so much about cheese...More
