A word from Pogacha of Issaquah
Welcome to Pogacha!

We feature a Northwest menu with the added flair of the Adriatic. Our cuisine is often described as Italian in that we feature pizzas (aka Pogachas) and pastas. At lunch time, we also feature sandwiches and salad. We bake our sandwich buns and serve fresh rolls with each menu twice a day and also use the dough for our gourmet pizzas. Our dinner menu includes seafood and steaks, lamb and beef tenderloin skewers along with our salads, pizzas and pastas. We have a large bar with a great appetizer selection and daily happy hours. Private dining rooms are available for special functions and events.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "It was sort of bland, really needed more lemon and seasoning. Pan juices are so important to this dish, but there was no evidence of that. I think the chicken should be "pounded" and flattened more, then cooked very quickly, instead of sort of thick the way mine was. the veggies were undercooked, hard rubber unseasoned. mash potatoes were good. My husband ordered the same thing and his chicken was overcooked and dry. Our friends' food looked good and I did not hear any complaints. "

  • "We sat in the bar because the dining area was so dark for lunch. Bar staff/waitress was great and the food was delicious. She brought a wonderful bread pudding gratis for the birthday girl. Reasonable cost...Would go again!"

  • "As always Pogacha's comes through with a good evening out. Server was prompt, informative and friendly. Food was well presented and tasty. Veal Marsala (evening special) and salmon were our choices. Very good."

  • "This was our first visit to Pogacha. We each tasted the 2 salads and 3 entrees. The dressing on the beet salad lacked flavor and the apple/walnut/gorgonzola was okay; both would have been improved with fresh ground pepper which was not offered. The signature pasta with chicken and port-soaked grapes was too sweet; the sauce was unbalanced but improved with some balsamic vinegar, salt and fresh ground pepper.The chicken over mushroom ravioli was good, a little gummy, and lacked salt. (I do not add salt to everything, but salt enhances flavor and most dishes need some). The 4 season pogacha was not good: it was doughy, not crisp, and had too much cream without any identifiable flavors. The wines were nice. We will not likely eat here again."

  • "We had reservations. My companion and I sat in the waiting area for over ten minutes. When I saw a group of people come in and get seated before us WITHOUT reservations I thought something was amiss. I didn't say anything though, because I knew the hostess was aware of of presence (we were sitting right in front of her). I thought perhaps a table for 4 opened up before the table for 2 and that's why they got seated, so we kept waiting. After another 10 mins, the hostess comes up to me and asks, "Are you waiting for something?" And I said, "Yes! Our table! We had reservations at 7:30." It was like she hadn't even seen us before. It was not a good first impression for an otherwise enjoyable dining experience."

  • "Our group of three couples had a wonderful dinner after going to the Beat the Winter Brews Fest event at Gilman Village. Everyone enjoyed their meals and enjoyed the music as well. Pogacha is always consistent and we have enjoyed ourselves every time we have had a meal here."

  • "Waited very long between courses. Tiring, boring, and hungry. Foods seemed okay, on the better side. Outside looks okay, but the dining area wasn't very attractive...low ceiling, perhaps? And one part of the ceiling was concave, seemingly leaking."

  • "Every time we have been to Pogacha we have had excellent food, excellent service, and a wonderful time. We have been to celebrate our anniversary, Valentine's Day, and my husband's company Christmas party as well. We've never been disappointed."

  • "I've been a fan of the Issaquah location since I worked for a food distributer and would deliver to the location. When I needed a romantic dinner for my then girlfriend (now my wife) Pogacha came through with flying colors and we've been loyal customers ever since. We've been coming to Pogacha every year for our anniversary and it's a great experience every time. The food is great and the servers are all very pleasant and attentive. Definitely go here if you are looking for an intimate romantic dinner!"

  • "Pogacha is a fantastic blend of several types of spots. It fits whether you are casual or a bit more spiffy, since both will feel comfortable. You can get pizza (well, Pogacha, which is better) & burgers, or step up to crafted seafoods, pastas or prime rib. My favorites are there tender lamb shank, or the burger that's half beef/half lamb. Leave cheese off it and enjoy how rich it is."

  • "We made a reservation to have dinner at Pogacha on Friday night before attending the play at Village Theater. The three of us were very pleased with our food selections, the service was outstanding and we got to the play in plenty of time. We will be back!"

  • "Our server was far too slow for a luncheon service. Not certain if the problem was his or the kitchen's. Next time I will alert the server we have limited time."

  • "The experience wasn't worth the expense. Crab Manicotti was dry and the Chicken Madeira was tough. Had to wait for beverage refills and ask twice for a glass of wine."

  • "Food was great and the service was excellent. The Tomato Basil Soup was the best I've ever had. The Salad (apple, walnut, cheese) was perfect with just the right amount of dressing to enhance not smother. The Salmon salad was a tad too spicy. Could have turned the heat down a bit on that one. Would have been a perfect evening except for the noise level. Hate to have to lean in to the table to hear the person sitting right across from me. Still a great place to eat with an excellent location if you are going to the Village Theatre. We will be returning to Pogacha's in Issaquah."

  • "This was our 2nd time to Pogacha after having a wonderful dinner December. This time was very disappointing. The service was poor. I think the waitress was overwhelmed. We sat in a room in the back of the restaurant that looked out at the back parking lot. This room has absolutely none of the charm of the rest of the restaurant. I ordered the lamb shank, it showed up looking steaming hot, turns out the sauce was hot but the meat was cold in the middle. One bright spot a very nice young man who was busing the room was very pleasant) Very disappointing after a nice first experience. Unfortunately, we will be trying someplace else for our Saturday theater night."

  • "My daughter and I decided to have dinner at Pogacha before an evening at the theater. We arrived 90 minutes prior to the event at the theater. We were seated and ordered quickly and let the server know we had tickets to the local theater - infact I left the tickets on the table as a gentle reminder. Our beverages and salads came quickly but we waited and waited for our dinner order to arrive. Finally about 25 minutes before the event at the theater (over an hour since being seated) our dinner was placed on the table. We ended up taking our meal in a box. The day old dinner was OK - would have been better when served. My family and I are regular customers - but not likely to return. Wallace"

  • "I love the menu here. So many choices in the form of salads, pastas, pogachas (thin crust pizzas) all very appealing. Everything tasted great. The wine list was also quite acceptable with a nice range in price. I can't wait to come back again."

  • "Very helpful server got us to our play on time. Restaurant great about splitting portions. Food very good. Will go back."

  • "Food was outstanding. Prime Rib was cooked as desired and tender. Pear-Gorgonzola was delicious. Service was good. A very good place for a pre-play dinner."

  • "We had Christmas Eve dinner there this year. Lovely décor. Great service. The food is always excellent. Mushroom ravioli are the best! Salads are fresh and never over dressed. No wonder they are still around. We only wish that we had room for dessert."
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "Great spot to have dinner before going to the Village Theater. Look on the back of your play ticket, sometimes there is a coupon as the restaurant is a sponsor of the local playhouse (which is world class by the way and something you should take advantage of!!). We will be going to eat here again when coming to Issaquah."
    Dined on 12/12/2013
  • "The food was delicious, it was really noisy and I could not hear my date from across the table -- we were sitting in a booth, service was okay -- find it really annoying when they bring your main meal out at the same time as your appetizer."

  • "Stopped in before a theater event. Food is consistently wonderful, quickly delivered. Service staff are friendly and meet any special requests. Always a go-to place!"

  • "The restaurant accomodated our bigger group and provided separate checks which is always appreciated. The waiter also honored a coupon for one group who met the criteria. We were going to the theatre and had left 1.75 hours and the waiter was attentive and fast enough without us feeling rushed at the end. Good experience!"

  • "Just having warm pogachas delivered to your table is worth the trip here. I had a delicious soup and great caesar salad and one of our friends had the marsala sauced ravioli - very tasty!"
    Dined on 11/17/2013
  • "I had the Salmon Fettucine which had probably 8 cut out pieces (almost 1-inch) of salmon on top of the pasta. I don't use salt but I had to this time to give my food some flavor beside the green sauce and an abundance of olive oil that was used for the pasta. The salmon was pretty tasty on its own, baked in smoke. They had a generous list of wine for selection. I had the Malbec since that is my favorite; but I did not care for this one. I questioned the server whether it was really a Malbec and not a Merlot or something else since it was too acidic and did not have the bold, full body taste a good Malbec usually has."

  • "Lived here a few years, and finally have Pogacha a try. Very glad we did! Food was great, and our waiter Kendall was outstanding and very attentive. Crust on my flatbread was perfect. We're definitely looking forward to coming back."

  • "A group from work wanted a nice but not too expensive place to hold a going away party. Pogacha was perfect on all counts. They opened up a side room for us which gave us some privacy and they also gave us great service and good food. We noticed as we went out that the bar was noisy but we couldn't hear it at all from where we were sitting."

  • "My wife had attended a group luncheon several months ago and raved about their french fries and club sandwich. So... when we were looking for a spot for Sunday brunch we decided to check it out. Great time. Great service. Great selection and yes, the fries were one of a kind . We'll return and try dinner when my mom visits."

  • "The five of us chose to dine here because of the variety on the menu. Some of us need to eat gluten free, dairy free, and/or vegetarian. We were all able to order without having to modify anything. (Although one of us would have appreciated more vegan options.) Our server was just attentive enough to take care of our needs and allowed us to take our time catching up. It was exactly the dining experience we were looking for."
