“romantic eatery on the coast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

Wonderful, romantic old depoe building with a husband and wife team that really care about your experience. The food is excellent. Our steak was too well done at first, we mentioned it, and a new one swiftly re-emerged, done perfectly, It was Valentines Day Weekend so the place was swathed in red lamps and soft red light and our corner table was cozy and intimate. Definitely worth a repeat.

“Eleven years of delicious dinners!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

The Depot in Seaview, WA has been and continues to be a consistent delight. Terrific food prepared with imagination and a deft touch; really good servers; and skillful and good natured management. Really well run restaurants seem to run on autopilot. The Depot could teach lessons! And, this has been going on for eleven years! Only the best restaurants last and prosper this long and continue to deliver excellence. Our most recent dinner was a full-house wine tasting and dinner wlth l'ecole no. 41 from Walla Walla in March. Our fellow wine-drinkers were from all over the Northwest. It's worth the drive - arriving is like finding the gold at the end of the rainbow.

“It's a gem. ”

The Depot is small, cozy and has a great atmosphere. The waitress was great and the menu has a good selection. There's no better gumbo or ribeye.

“One of the Best......Again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014

The Depot Restaurant, where to begin. It is located just inside Seaview, Wa. Michel, the Owner and Head Chef, has himself a well known Dinner House style restaurant. His place, The Depot, is open 7 days a week. It is only open for dinner. I was commenting to him regarding the Filet Mignon that he prepared for me. Details in a min. I asked Michel where he bought the meat from, thinking it would be from 1 supplier. WRONG. He uses several and buys only the best a supplier can offer. Not only is this for the meat he buys but also for all the food he uses. There's that attention to detail Michel has, which is reflected in all the dishes The Depot has to offer.

The Filet Mignon I had the joy to eat was one of the best I've had in a long time. Thick, Tender like you would not believe, and with a taste that only grain finished, locker hung and aged beef can have. Cooked to perfection! My- o- My !

The Depot has wine to offer as well. The list is well balanced with something to offer to each entrée that makes the entire meal even better.

Hats off to Michel and The Depot Restaurant in Seaview, WA. This is another "got to go to" place not to be missed.
