Very comfortable, casual restaurant. Easy to hang out and visit with friends. Sometimes service was a little scattered, but just fine if you're relaxed and not in a hurry about it.

Fantastic Local Foodie Spot
The food was fantastic! And the mac and cheese was phenomenal! Love the local food usage and the fast change of dishes as ingredients are used up. It keeps me reassured that they are buying local and what is in season.

We have eaten at Ravish a number of times over the last few years and Ravish remains our favorite Eastlake Neighborhood restaurant!!!

Best of Eastlake
My fiance and I love this place. The potato latkes, and mac n' cheese are a must. We tend to explore with our third dish and have yet to be disappointed. The constantly changing beer/cocktail selection provides for other fun exploration. Staff is great, and the bi-weekly trivia is tough but not too tough.
Will continue to come back again and again

Bright atmosphere with wonderful touches. Great food and fun to share. Love that style of eating when it is hard to decide what to pick. Wonderful neighborhood place to go but worthy of driving there too.

My martini was perfect, served in a lovely old fashioned etched glass. We shared the roasted veges,crabcakes, and chicken skewers. Flavors and spices made us say yummmm throughout the meal. Our server recommended a glass of the Lightening Viognier Roussanne Marsanne, which caused me to find it for home use. A happy girl was I.

small bite fans eat here!
This is my favorite way to dine: several small plates so we get a variety of tastes. I really like the chalkboard menu options - fresh, seasonal, then add the staples from the printed menu and you get a great meal. I will definitely go there again.

I have been to Ravish several times. Nick always makes us feel welcome and makes us feel at home. The atmosphere is hip, yet comfortable. The food is fresh, unique and flavorful!

Ravish has a unique and eclectic selection of small plate foods and distinctive drinks. It is one of my favorite eatery locations.

novel flavors, brilliant cocktail
The small plates style enabled my dining partner and i to order four different food plates: beet salad, potato latkes, steak skewers, flatbread. All were fresh and flavorful. Slightly disappointing was the flatbread special (grilled peaches, arugula, olive oil, prosciutto) which was a bit dry and more bready than i prefer. My finely crafted cocktail---a daily special of rye whiskey, grapefruit juice, fresh mint, and an olive---was creative and killer. Service was a bit slow at first, but was attentive once we placed our order. Am planning to check out brunch a weekend soon.

Great Chic Venue!
This place is the perfect dive bar for chicks. Immaculate décor, fantastic food, women chefs, predominant women customers, and very attractive bartender and waiters. Great recommendation!

We love Lisa and the Quinoa and seasonal salads and dressing. Remember the Burrata as well!

While not exactly in a vibrant zone of neighborhood bustle, or perhaps because of it, Ravish is an exciting alternative to cavernous mayhem with routine cuisine. The exceedingly pleasant, modest space is actually accommodating for an audible dinner conversation over thoroughly enjoyable, reasonably-proportioned plates. Not only does it make for a pleasant dining experience, but the bartender is dynamite!......how often can you get a perfectly made pisco sour in this town?!

Great Shareable Plates
We enjoyed our experience at Ravish. The cocktails were delicious and the shareable plates were reasonably priced. The steak skewers and the beet salad were are favorites. The steak was tender and flavorful with the chimchurra spices. The beet salad with blue cheese and candied walnuts was a perfect blend. We were impressed with the homemade desserts including homemade ice-cream and sorbet and wish we had room in our stomaches to try them all. A great place for friends to chat and snack the night away.

My partner and I were celebrating our anniversary with dinner at Ravish. This was our first time at the restaurant and we will certainly return. The atmosphere is absolutely romantic - a beautiful mix of chabby chic meets Parisian flair. The food was simple yet elegant. I adored the Sweet Potato Latkes and my partner could not get enough of the baked brie (with carmel and apples). The portions are not huge but are adequate and reasonably priced. The house wine was also a tasty surprise.
The only "con" was the slow service. Once our food was finally ordered - they did serve us as soon as the food arrived.
Highly recommend this for an impromptu dinner for someone special. The menu has something for everyone.

Everything there was fresh, tasty, and prepared perfectly. The brie, pulled pork, and latkes are must orders. Cocktails were all done very well, not too sweet. Check out the du jours, they're definitely going to be worth it. Great food and service, very glad I found this place.

My favorite restaurant
I hesitate to give an honest review of Ravish. Yes - it's selfish of me, but I want to keep this gem a secret. Ravish opened up a few years ago three blocks from my house which makes it easy to get to but honestly - I'd drive here if I had to. The interior is sharp and creative. It's a small restaurant may 10-12 tables, with a teeny bar, but I love this place. The menu boasts a solid menu with specials doing as specials do: change every night. The wait staff is genuinely friendly (they'll remember your name) without being overkill. Drinks? They stock a small but well thought out inventory of hard liquor and wine, and are happy to create a drink for you. Desserts are all wonderful. I will never grow tired of coming here.

Came for dinner -- it's tapas
Came for dinner -- it's tapas style and there were several interesting and nicely prepared things -- and now most recently for brunch. That was even better: imaginative preparations, excellently done. The latkes, topped with a pile of chopped bacon, had an extraordinarily complex and good taste; the smoked salmon hash was even better, with all the tastes of the salmon, excellent roasted potatoes, onion, pepper, and egg distinct yet blending into a great-tasting whole; the croque monsieur was made with great ingredients and had an unusual and good light gravy-sauce, all on a to-die-for biscuit.

The quinoa salad was the greatest, with wonderful piquant flavor. Chickpeas, wilted arugula, and other goodies made it a spectacular find. Generous serving over fed the vegetarian in our group of four, with plenty to share with the three omnivores. Crab cakes and skewers were also delicious. Green salad did not disappoint. We will be back, and may ask them to cater an upcoming wedding. Marvelous!
Ambiance is perfect for a neighborhood bistro.

A gem on Eastlake
We've walked by Ravish for years saying we needed to try it. Booked it through open table at the last minute Friday night. What a totally pleasant surprise. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. The food was wonderful and prices more than reasonable. We'll be back often.

The food was very good (Brussels sprouts and delicata squash roasted) but very well done. The house red was a good pairing for the food, slightly oaky.

Best date night in awhile
From top to bottom this was a really excellent dining experience. The food was delicious and the service was cheerful and prompt. I really appreciated the simple preparations of the food done really, really well. So pleased with this place, and I will be coming back.

Some nice touches
Ravish is a small place, spartan, but nicely furnished in a way that gives some character to the space. Well-thought-out menu of small plates you can mix and match. At brunch, the potato latkes are very good, and most things display a nice sense in the kitchen of taste combinations. The complimentary fresh-baked spice breads (pumpkin at this last visit) to start is a very nice touch.

This was our second trip to Ravish and both times the food is inventive yet not pretentious and always tasty. Several menu items perfect for kids- i.e. the Pigs in a Blanket. We had the chicken liver pate and it was delicious. The drinks and bartender's personal attention to us and our drinks made us love this place the first time. The perfect Manhattans this time did not disappoint. Happy hour is a great deal and includes good food drink.s,i.e. the Manhattan ! And both times we got dessert - we don't usually but their selection is fun and comforting enough to seduce and the Theo chocolate brioche bread pudding was wonderful. The servers are equally personable and attentive. It's a wonderful dining experience and is now a go-to for us.

Ravish is delish!
The. food. is. awesome. Very few restaurants in Seattle live up to my expectations. Ravish exceeded them. Everything was fantastic. Go here. You won't be disappointed. Unique Moroccan influences and a hard to beat craft cocktail happy hour to boot. I will be back. Often.
