No outside signage make tracking it down a bit tricky - but we got there! You need to book! The seafood is superb. Great service, excellent wine list and knowledgeable staff. Wish we could have eaten here twice!

My friend Bruce said this was the place for lunch when visiting the Pike Place Market. The man does not lie. Delicious food in a casual setting. Really fresh seafood, nice portion sizes and a nice wine list by the glass. Upstairs dining room just off the market filled with light. Tip from Bruce: make reservations for lunch. Most folks just wander in and the dining room isn't that big making for long waits.

The food is outstanding, the view of the market is great, and the service was attentive and accommodating. I know places hate splitting checks for large groups, but they did it for us. Everyone was blown away by the food. And very reasonable considering the location. I think it helps being hidden upstairs with such a small sign to mark its location. Find it!

We headed over with some friends as this place was recommended by a waiter at John Howie. We where with a group of 12 people and where able to select from the menu a la carte . That alone was great . I ordered some chip and dip as a starter and a sandwich catfish as main course .
Both meals where excellent except for the soup. But anyway the soup wasn't that big and there was plenty enough food for lunch :-)

Enjoyed my friends , food ,atmosphere and scenery
A must go when downtown Seattle

Angelique was a talented and humorous server who expertly managed our group of five. The food recommendations were spot-on and the wine worked for us. A pleasant evening spun into a marvelous memory because everything went so smoothly. Angelique had us all smiling and completely satisfied. What a good place to dine!
