This is a great restaurant for a group outing. Sometimes there is a band as well which is good but also can be very noisy. The food is very tasty.

This was our 1st time at Sip.
This was our 1st time at Sip. It was a weeknight and we were pleasantly surprised by the live music. Everything was great except the service. Our server was mostly waiting on tables across the room, and several times we had to ask another server for something. One of our wines was corked, which was immediately replaced (and removed from the bill)--but only after flagging down someone who could help us. After we arrived home, I noticed that it had been Ladies Night, with happy hour drink prices all night. This was not mentioned to us, and we may have changed our drink order if we had known. Despite this, we will be back.

Sip, Issaquah-- Great Restaurant
While this restaurant qualifies as a "neighborhood restaurant" it's sophistication makes it a destination place to eat. The ambiance, food, wine, service were all excellent.

food and wine sampler were delicious. it draws a mid-40's - 50's crowd. It feels similar to Purple Cafe, but not quite as good.

Very good food. Excellent
Very good food. Excellent service. If you like jazz, Sip is a great place to eat. But their background music is very loud. If jazz is not your favorite or if you want to have an intimate conversation, Sip may not be the optimum restaurant for you.

First time -- nice experience
My wife and I went to Sip the first time and had an enjoyable visit. We sat on the patio and had the sliders (very good) and crabcakes (decent) from the appetizer menu and a few cocktails. Service was really snappy and server was very courteous. Definitely will go back.

Off the beaten path...
...but we'll worth the effort. Great food, friendly and competent staff, upscale atmosphere. Unique menu!

Did the whole nine yards, appetizers, wine, entrees and dessert. Appetizers were fresh and a nice twist to the Poke and the pork belly and scallops were delicious. Sea bass is a favorite of mine and was prepared just right and I added the garlic mashed potatoes--not a cous cous fan... Hubby had the duck ramen and slurped it up. Dessert was fine, the brulee flight was a nice idea.

Great Way To End A Day
Had a wonderful dinner seated outside and enjoyed some great wine and food. The service was great, the setting was perfect and meal was excellent. Definitely a comeback on our list of places to dine in the East Seattle area.

We come here every so often
We come here every so often and are always happy with our meals. About the only criticism I'd make is I wish they had a more extensive wine by the glass list.

We found it very quaint. Food was very good - we went early hoping it would be a quieter experience and it was wonderful.

The courses were perfectly paired with wines provided by Treasury Wine Estates, including Stag's Leap, Penfolds and Beringer. Karen Ward, who represented the wineries, was attentive and provided just the right amount of information about each wine. It was truly an enjoyable dinner and worth the price.

As always, service and food is good/excellent. We were seated by the fireplace, which was really nice.

Great Food and Wine!
Amazing food. Executive chef, Chris Brown, adds wonderful seasonal fare to an already delicious menue. Great for dinner or to share small plates. Wine list and wine wall are impressive. Great options by the glass and wine flights. Love this place! We dine here regularly.

First Time Customer Will Return
Seattle Restuarant Week brought us in as well as the good things we had heard from family & friends. The food & service was perfect. The winey list was off the chart!

Creative Menu, Reliably Good
The ambiance gives you the impression that only 1st daters would come here, It's dark, the bar is huge, there are expensive wine bottles lining the walls. And yes, the regular menu prices are only worthy of 1st dates. However, once you sit down and take a look around you see families and even kids. I went for Restaurant Week with 2 friends and my 2 year old daughter. We had an early dinner, but no one gave me the stink eye for bringing my small child. The staff was quick to make sure my daughter had an appetizer and some bread before the rest of us even ordered our meal. I appreciated that. In the past, I've always made it for the 9pm happy hour, the Ice Cream sandwich is to DIE for....trust me, I'm a pregnant woman I know GOOD STUFF!

Went knowing Sip was participating in Seattle Restaurant Week. OMG! All 3 courses were amazing, our bottle of wine was crisp and we loved it (good to last drop!). Have wanted to go there since it opened, and so glad we finally went. Staff was friendly, quickly responded to our need to get to movie on time, and prompt with refilling water glasses (never had to ask for it). Thoroughly enjoyed our meal that night.

Three of us...ages 91, 62, 68. Like everything about the restaurant. The noise level was too high for my elderly mother...but we run into that at most restaurants. Great food...sea bass, salmon, lamb ragau as I recall. This is our favorite place in Issaquah when we visit my mother. Generally a younger scene...which is fine.

Service was very good and
Service was very good and we weren't rushed between courses. It was a very relaxed comfortable dinner. The Ancho Filet was amazing! This was the best meal we;ve had in a long time.

This was a really nice dining
This was a really nice dining experience. I went w 4 of my friends for a birthday dinner and the service was great. I didn't really like the duck ramen dish but I would definitely come back and try something else .

Nice wine bar
Good wine bar in the highlands. Decent wine list, but sommelier seemed inexperienced when asked for recommendations. Food was excellent, service could have been a little more attentive but still was fine. Liked it, will return...
