We had a party of six, and were lucky enough to get seated right in front of the picture window that offers a view across the entire city and through to Puget Sound and the Olympic mtns beyond. Service was friendly and prompt, and they offer daily specials that are not on the menu as well. The Ceasar salad can be had with or without anchovies. Others had a grilled pear salad served on a bed of greens which was also very good. My wife ordered the steak special, a pepper crusted steak which was seared nicely, and cooked to her exact liking of temp ( rare ); it was very tender and really flavorful, and was on a bed of their gnocchi with a side of asparagus. I had the grilled eggplant dish, which was a really interesting take on eggplant parm. No breading on the eggplant, which allowed the flavor to shine, with goat cheese and mozarella balancing each other out, topped with a basil pesto on a bed of greens. For a fan of eggplant, every bite made my mouth happy. We had the flourless chocolate dessert, which was really dense with an intense dark chocolate flavor but not too sweet - it would appeal to those who really like dark chocolate, but if you prefer a creamier chocolate taste, maybe not so much. If I lived in Seattle, it would be someplace I would return to often enough to work through the whole menu.
