    Anybody can offer a basic hamburger, but Relish offers unique burger concoctions that are worth trying. Great location in the Westin, fun ambience, doting service staff. Worth a lunch look.

    Surprisingly I guess because it's a hotel restaurant. It's a little pricey - burgers run about $12 and sides are $3 (burgers don't come with a side), but it's in a hotel, so... The hostess was cold, but the waiter was nice. The food was delicious. The fried pickles were spears rather than sliced and just ok, but the parmesan tater tots and sweet potato were great. Wish I had brought a sweater - it was freezing.

    We ate here because we were staying at the Westin and wanted somewhere close to eat. They have a full bar and a great selection of beers on draft (more than I expected for them being in a hotel). The menu has good variety, and the cheese curds are amazing. While it wasn't too busy when we were there, I would highly recommend making a reservation if you are in a group larger than 4 - there aren't a ton of tables. Our waitress was very attentive and overall it felt like we weren't even in the hotel anymore. Great hotel restaurant.

    Ate here several times for breakfast and lunch while staying at the Westin. My husband and I loved the open atmosphere overlooking downtown Seattle. Everyone was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed my salads, burger, omelettes. We didn't mind paying for convenience, great service, and healthy food. Will definitely be back when in Seattle.

    My boyfriend loves burgers so I thought this would be 'the place' to go to celebrate his 20th b-day. However, that was not the case. The restaurant's ambiance was all it really had going for it. I had no idea it was in a hotel so it was a very casual feel. After seeing pictures of the restaurant I thought it would've been a hot spot for locals and foodies. The burgers were fair, I ordered a medium-rare burger and was served an overcooked almost burned burger. As for the name, I would have thought there would have been different types of relish to add to burgers- they had ketchup and mustard, that's all.

    Saw write up about this restaurant on Thrillist, but wasn't able to get there in time for the Breakfast Menu. My disappointment lasted only briefly because had I gone with the Bacon and Egg Burger I would've missed out on the Relish Signature. My wife went (Big Blue) and boys (Kids Salmon burgers) were equally as pleased. A bit much for lunch, but hey...we were on vacation!

    Well you look at the menu and the choices and the name and expect wonderful things. Not to be. I ordered my burger medium rare hoping for a medium burger. Came out well done. Two types of relish were set on the table, neither of which stood was special, considering the name. The burgers are tall but the meat was dwarfed by the stuff on top, none of which enhanced the burger. I had the bacon and egg. The fried egg was overcooked along with my patty. The calamari was bland but tender. Sweet potato fries and pinion rings, right out of the freezer bag and into the fryer. My wife did like the brussel sprouts. If you are wanting a good burger experience, this is NOT the place to be. A mom & pop diner will outshine this place on any given day.

    not bad, but definitely not the best burger in town. It is about what you would expect to find in a hotel restaurant (a couple bucks more than it should be and nothing special). Great place for a convenient bite if you're staying at the hotel, but not sure why you would go there otherwise. It's just another Seattle burger... the cocktails weren't bad though. So if you're staying at the westin and need a cocktail, it's a good spot for that.

    Located on the ground floor of the Westin Seattle, Relish is an extremely convenient choice for travelers arriving downtown late in the evening. Other nearby restaurants often have long waiting lists, but Relish was very convenient for when we arrived in Seattle on a Friday evening. There is a good selection of local beers. I particularly liked the tater tots with parmesan cheese; and the burgers are high quality.

    After reading about Relish we had high expectations. Thinking it was a popular place, we made a reservation. We arrived to a nearly empty restaurant and although the restaurant is huge, they seated us next to a screaming child. We quickly decided to move into the bar, where we were greeted by the most rude bartender ever. The food was not spectacular, but it was good. We liked the happy hour menu. With so many great places to dine at in Seattle, we won't be going back to this one.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    We saw that it got 4 out of 5 stars on OpenTable so had high expectations and were very disappointed. Seattle is such a very great city for foodies and Coldwater Bar & Grill just does not meet the bar set by even the most average restaurants downtown. Nothing on the wine list looked inviting to us. My salad had too much tart dressing, hubby's calamari was oily and main courses were similarly unimpressive. The waiter said that most of the patrons were staying at the hotel so I guess they have a captive audience and don't try very hard. I'd like to advise those guests that Dahlia lounge is less then a block away and a little slice of foodie heaven.

    There wasn't anything spectacular about the food here. I had the rib-eye steak and it wasn't very flavorful and not very tender. I've had better steaks from Black Angus. The chopped Chelan salad with mixed greens, bacon, Oregon blue cheese and roasted bosc pear was tasty as well as the rustic brick oven hot bread with roasted vegetables, olive tapenade and cambozola. My wife enjoyed the clam chowder and her New York strip steak. Our waitress, Giulia, was a sweetheart, very friendly, happy and very good service. I would come back because of her, but I won't be back for the food.

    The setting was great, very up town. The food was good, we started out with a Ceasar salad which was great. We coupled that with the Oven Brick Hotbread. My wife had the Neah Bay Paella which was stuffed with half a crab, mussels, shrimp and clams. She took some home and thought it was even better the second day. I had the rib eye which was a little on the small side and slightly over done but still very tasty. We shared an order of Lemon Risoto which was very tangy and tasty. The service was first class.
