but also the smallest ones. Raw. Like you are supposed to eat them. Great food all over. Great atmosphere too with the open kitchen. Expensive though.

Such a fun place with delicious food. We shared a lot of dishes. I especially loved the pork belly dish and the morel toast but honestly everything was so delicious. Also the atmosphere is really fun and interesting. I will definitely return.

Yes, there are only 3 entrees on the menu but that’s enough. The way to enjoy Sitka and Spruce is sharing. Four of us enjoyed salad that was amazing, lamb, chicken, gnocchi and cauliflower. Drinks are awesome. Dessert delicious. Service perfect. Small venue with a...More

Really small portions of very average food. But it is pretentious and priced at 3x what it is worth.

This restaurant has an ambitious approach that exceeds expectations. Located in a market space in downtown Seattle - the former industrial use is still evident but is overlayed with a fine dining service that is uniquely the product of this vibrant city and the resources...More

Located in the back of the Melrose Market, Sitka & Spruce is a culinary delight. An excellent spot for a romantic dinner, or to celebrate with friends. The menu and bar rotate regularly based on season and availability. Cocktails all around! Yum! The food was...More

Yes. At least when we were there. There were 3 "main" dinners, but we sort of just ordered 3 various app/sides and they came out in courses as our dinner. It was a little different, but the food was top notch. Beautiful... More
