Worth a visit to Hotel Murano
We wanted to try something new, so we went to bite for lunch. My burger was prepared to perfection, and the accompanying fries were some kind of herbed garlicky blend that was totally addictive. The hubs had some kind of turkey, avocado sandwich that he loved, and an amazing banana-vanilla bean shake. Our server was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The hotel housing Bite has wonderful glass art on display. It was quiet when we were there, which the staff said was unusual for a monday at 1 pm. Definitely would go back, even if just to get my own milkshake.

We were there 3 pm for a late lunch, so we had the restaurant to ourselves. The waitress was fantastic; the food was great & the view of Mt. Ranier was amazing!

Great Menu &Kobe Beef Burger
Great variety on the lunch menu with many different types of cuisine; I had a hard time choosing which to try! The Bite Burger (Kobe beef with bacon relish) was delicious. Garlic fries that accompanied it were just okay; not very garlicky, but cooked well; crispy. Reasonably priced.

Place to celebrate
Great food. Great presentation. Great service. Drinks a little pricy but well made. Had a graduation dinner there and would definitely return. Definitely not your typical hotel restaurant food .

Excellent place to dine
Dine there for my daughter birthday. It was more than what I expected from reading the reviews. Definitely one of the better places to dine

Great welcome from the host who engaged my elderly folks right away. Prompt, professional table service came next, along with fresh bread- the only criteria my dad will judge a restaurant by. My mom and I had reuben sandwiches, dad had the NW salad. With gravitas, my mother (who is from NYC) said it was the best reuben she ever had. And it was good on marble rye without too much dressimg but generous with swiss and sauerkraut. My dads salad was brimming over with cold fesh crab and more over a bed of romaine that . After lunch we strolled the art filled Murano Hotel where the Bite is located. The hotel might be mistaken for a art museum if it weren't for the guest rooms above. Great experience, would recommend highly.

Dinner for 8
I took a group of 8 people to BITE for dinner while staying in Tacoma. Many of the group had eaten here previously and had high expectations. They were not disappointed, in fact we had the exact same table as we had previously. Everyone enjoyed their meal and I didn't see much (if anything) left on the plates as they were cleared. Also impressed that substitutions were readily handled by the kitchen staff.
Only concern I would note is that when I originally tried to make this reservation (on-line) it was for 10 people, and was not reservation accepted. I changed the reservation to 8 and it was accepted. However, there was plenty of room available in the dining area so I'm not sure what a larger reservation would not have been accepted.

Great Brunch - Expensive Parking
Had a spur of the moment brunch here and was really impressed. The menu selection was great and provided a lot of options. Both me and my guest extremely enjoyed our meal. We felt like the portions were good and the prices were very reasonable.
The one complaint is having to pay for parking at the Hotel itself at $8.00 for a Sunday. Either reduced or validated parking for guests is reasonable especially for Tacoma. Also, having to park, then pay and then go back to your car to put the ticket is not ideal in pouring rain.

Had a good time with some girlfriends for a birthday. Met at the bar downstairs for a cocktail before heading up to the restaurant. Food was good, service was good. Would def recommend to friends for a quiet yet amazing night..
