When Specialty's first opened, the food was fresh and the service was excellent. Now the tables are dirty all the time and the service is sub-par at best. While a few of the servers seem to care, most are bored and barely make an effort.

I am allergic to dairy. Last week I ordered a club sandwich without mayo and cheese. I explicitly told the server that I was allergic. He heard and acknowledged me but neglected to actually LISTEN. The sandwich also has ranch - luckily we were watching them make it and were able to get it re-done without ranch. Seriously, it's a food allergy, I expect them to try a little harder.

Great bakery by the transit center. Sandwiches aren't that special after all.

The downtown Seattle Specialty's Cafe' is good for the money. Clean enough and efficient in service, but both University Village and especially the Bellevue Sq. locations are out of control. Dirty tables all the time, dirty floors and really poor service. The food has even gone down hill. I used to love this place, but some thing or some one is missing from the way it used to be.
