    I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at this restaurant. Food was fantastic, service was delightful, and did I mention the food was fantastic? Honestly, I've never had a bread pudding that I liked, but their apple fritter pudding was probably one of the best apple desserts I've ever had, and I've lived in Yakima WA my whole life. I've had quite a few apple desserts. Great wine that they recommended, as well.

    Had read good things here on open table, such as "good wine list" (it was brief and uninspiring), and "good for foodies" (not this one). Virtually all meat dishes were pork. Sorry to say there are lots of people who for religious or personal reasons do not eat pork. Had a kale Caesar salad which was pretty one-note and had no zing (anchovies? lemon? garlic? Nope. Didn't taste anything here.) Came hoping for a "find" but found it was not a place I want to rush back to.

    My daughter and I came here for the first time recently and loved it! It was so fun to share the different dishes, and I loved how they had specialty items to fit the season (i.e., they were well into Octoberfest on our visit!). The place is quite small so I recommend reservations as it appears this place fills up quickly! We'll definitely be back.

    The food is delicious--my brother declared the beef slider to be one of the best burgers he'd had in his life, and the gravlax I had was perfect. We all enthusiastically cleaned our plates, but they arrived after a longish wait .The staff were all very pleasant and knowledgeable, and the local food and atmosphere are wonderful. A little tightening up of the service would do wonders, and maybe a little lowering of the music level. But for good food at not-exorbitant prices, it's great.

    Over the last several years, Ravish has been one of our favorite restaurants. Unfortunately, the last couple times we've gone, the food quality seems to have slipped. They have changed the crabcakes for the worse; the short ribs were tough and not particularly tasty; and they no longer offer one of our favorites, the pulled pork sandwich.

    We had read a number of the reviews and thought we would try this restaurant. The food choices were extremely limited. We ordered the kale caesar salad which was blaugh and did not have enough dressing. For a main dish we ordered the special of the day Halibut. The Halibut was fair, but the beans that came with it were partly burned. There were just no decent additional salads or main courses from which to choose. I would not recommend this restaurant.

    My family of four went here on a nice summer evening, we were on the early side of dinner and were seated at a nice table of our choice. The decor is charming, and the staff very friendly. The food was very good, we arrived 5 minutes before happy hour ended so we had five little apps that were tasty. The cocktail of the day was also very good! As the meal ended, we were a little disappointed that our service was kind of non existent, empty dishes and water glasses sat for quite a while. There were only two guys taking care of all tables (and make cocktails), and as the restaurant became more full, it was hard for them to keep up the great service. Other than that, we really liked it and would go back again.

    They were so sweet at Ravish. The servers that weren't even serving us were saying hi to us as well - I felt like I knew everyone there by the time I left. They even offered us two bags of fresh biscuits because it was closing time and they didn't want them to go stale. It makes sense to do that but so few restaurants actually do it! You rock awesomely Ravish!

    Ate at Ravish Sunday night...they were out of many items due to demand over weekend which seemed given that it was a holiday weekend. Attentive service to start with cocktails, but food took nearly 45 minutes for simple food, i.e., salads and a reorder of bread. Having said that, the food was terrific.

    Inventive dishes, well prepared, often with ingredients they grow themselves. Every once in a while, you find a restaurant where the chef(s) actually seem to live the ideals of grow local, eat fresh, do interesting things with the taste possibilities. This is one.

    We had the Halibut with corn relish, and it was tender, moist, delicate but nuanced. We also loved the vegetable soup with thyme. We decided to split the dessert - it was a mistake! We ended up fighting over it - a layering of almond cake, creme brûlée, and rhubarb topping which was absolutely delicious! We should have ordered one each. Next time...

    Ravish gives you a happy feeling just walking in the door. The menu is filled with lots of interesting and tasty small plates. The roasted veggies (asparagus and mustard greens that night) and Mac And Cheese that we shared were both outstanding. We grazed first on some yummy nuts and a grilled artichoke. We love the opportunity to try lots of small plates and eat as much or little as you desire. The servers are friendly and there were several unusual well-priced wines by the glass available. Go and be ready for fun!

    Our group of six had a wonderful Mother's Day brunch buffet at Ravish! We loved that the food was presented in smaller servings - just a few bites each - so we could sample everything without either getting too full or wasting food. The flavors were outstanding! Lots of fresh herbs and unusual combinations. The cocktails were very yummy - the Bloody Mary comes with a veritable garden of pickled veggies!!! Can't wait to try Ravish for dinner!

    Hurray! The Kale Caesar is back on the menu at Ravish. Order it with a dose of quinoa and you're good to go. Crab cakes, as always, killer. Had a wonderful libation created by John who's a regular chemist behind the bar. The drink featured rye and a simple syrup made with brewed rhubarb. A perfect drink for the warmer months ahead. Lisa is the perfect waitress - always a delight. Dessert was an amazing sugar cake topped with flan. Oh boy. I may have to go back again tonight.

    We discovered Ravish because of a Chinook book offer and we are glad we did! Great cocktails and Happy Hour choices of wine and drinks. We were really pleased with our food options. The small plates were great and we (including our kids) particularly loved the roasted artichokes and the harissa quinoa salad. The baked brie was delicious but definitely more like a dessert than an appetizer.

    Ravish is at the top of our short list of most favorite Seattle restaurants. We have been there for random weeknights when we wanted to treat ourselves, weekend date nights, the Valentine's Day special menu, many birthday dinners, and now Sunday brunch. At Ravish you can always count on creative but unpretentious, amazing delicious food with extremely friendly, relaxed servers and lovely interesting cocktails (nonalcoholic too). This Sunday brunch was no exception. We love what you do, Ravish!!

    The folks at Ravish were awesome enough to accommodate our large group of 20 on a Saturday night (we went there after a show). They called us back to confirm the rez and worked to seat us even though we were late by 30 mins. We missed the regular dinner menu (which is fantastic), but the late night menu is very fun too. The craft cocktails were distinctive and tasty and the service was impeccable.

    Our first visit was a great experience! We were wise to ask the waitress about the portion sizes as we were both hungry but wanted to make certain we had room for dessert. We started off with the chicken skewers which were tasty and had a nice flavor with the port. Also, we shared one slider (meatloaf). With the latke and the quinoa, we had a little too much carbs as the size of the quinoa was larger than the rest of the plates. All flavors went well together for an enjoyable evening. The bread pudding was the star of the evening. If I had to change anything, I would have skipped over the quinoa and had a full size chicken skewer between the both of us as that would have balanced it a bit more. All of the dishes were tasty.

    Traffic was bad, parking is difficult but the rest of our party had arrived and already started. We shared everything, standouts were the cheese plate with fig jam, honey and walnuts and the meatloaf sliders. Cocktails are truly crafted, delicious and exceed the high level of creativity we are coming to expect in Seattle. Great service from the same long haired fellow, we hope he waits on us every time because we are definitely going back. Only one disappointment, i.e; dirty looks from one of the folks waiting at the bar for a table, perhaps they are overbooked to compensate for those no-shows (could that be you?) but the place got jammed and we were still eating and drinking. I'm not about to rush because your schedule is tight!

    We dine at Ravish every few months. Enjoy the atmosphere and food. Causal and relaxed. Some new items on the menu, the ones we tried were good... Chicken and steak skewers, and they had a smoked duck and pickled veggie plate that was very good. And, can't leave with a potatoe latki. Good beer on tap... Waitress who remembers us.
