A word from The Pink Door

The Pink Door is an independently owned (never cloned, never genetically modified) restaurant that has been quietly dedicated to fresh & local Italian food since 1981. Its seafood & produce driven menu has been the central theme throughout its wildly popular domain in Seattle's Pike Place Market.

Diner Reviews
  • "This restaurant has it figured out. Great food, great atmosphere, character and great service. If you're reading this review trying to figure out if you should go here, quite messing around and just do it ;)"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "I make it a point to go to The Pink Door every time I am in Seattle. I crave the Lasagna. The servers are fun and the view is beautiful. It's like a treasure hunt finding The Pink Door...what a treasure."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "I booked through the Seattle restaurant week website, only to find when we arrived that the special menu was not available on Friday night. So we were a bit disappointed about that but otherwise had an excellent night."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "This little Italian gem tucked into an alley with virtually no identification is worth the search. Excellent service, very good food, and surprising entertainment"

  • "Went to the Pink Door for lunch to enjoy the dine around Seattle 3 course meal. The food was great, but the service was poor. My husband and I waited 30 minutes before we got bread, water, or our wine. This was after we ordered our food. One server spilled water all over my husband and our table. When we asked the server various questions about our food, he had no idea what the ingredients were."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "The food exceeded my expectations from my last visit a couple of years ago."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "I've been there now on multiple occasions and they never fail to impress!"
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "If you didn't know where and what it was, you'd never find it, but I don't think it's a problem for them. This is a really unique restaurant, in a cellar, but so eclectically elegant. Tables were close to each other, yet you could have a conversation. A great find!"
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Once again, some of the best lasagna (I wasn't going to have two this time but I couldn't resist having a second helping as the first was so good)."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "My husband thought it was some of the best pasta he has ever had. The lasagna is also very good. We especially enjoyed the fixed prix menu for Seattle Restaurant Week. Excellent cheese on the appetizer cheese board (sheep, goat, cow). Be sure to make a reservation."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "My favorite place to eat in all of Seattle. great FOOD AND GREAT ENTERTAINMENT!"
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "I thought from other reviews that there was a cabaret and that on a Saturday evening we'd see a performer with our dinner. Unfortunately not, which was disappointing. I recommend checking their website or schedule carefully or come not expecting a performance. It also took more than an hour for our entree and our server didn't check in or seem aware of the wait."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "The place a little hard to find as there are 3 different entrances that were not from any main street. But once you're there, the place has such a great personality and the food tasted authentic and different. You start with celery with olive oil, and their calamari was sauteed. I had seared scallops for my main course and it was divine. I would probably only go once for the experience since there was other food there that I would prefer to go to."

  • "Nice place, with great food and wine, ideal for a romantic date or a special occasion."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Everything about this visit to the Pink Door was spot on... The staff and server were friendly and attentive. Food was absolutely delicious! As promised, they got us out the door in time for curtain call... without ever feeling rushed. Our special evening couldn't have gone better."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Great experience...amazing food...will definitely go back...large wine list and late night show option..."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "We had won a gift package and included was a certificate, from one year ago, well we were blown away.!!! Try the ceased salad, the chiopino , the bruschetta, the owner came over and introduced herself. Don't miss this great place, se sweet and cozy!!! We are going back!!"

    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "What a treat. Don't miss the lasagna, it is one of the best I have ever had, and certainly not typical for this dish. The service was outstanding and the menu is attractively priced. The entertainment a real bonus. Enjoy this unique place."
    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "THIS PLACE WAS INCREDIBLE! dinner and a show- five shiny golden glimmering stars"

  • "My friends visiting from California and Connecticut felt special and enjoyed their time at the Pink Door. The food was delicious and the wine was excellent. Our waiter was attentive and had a great sense of humor. We will definitely come back again!"

  • "It was my husband's birthday and I wanted to do something special for him. We loved the food and the services provided. It was kind of difficult to locate the "pink door" though and the space was a bit small. Will recommend to couples on a romantic date."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "As two graduate students we can't get out much with our student loan budget but we like to get out when we can. This was a fantastic atmosphere, great food and just a overall wonderful dining experience. Somehow they have an intimate dining set up that doesn't make you feel like you're sitting on your neighbors lap even though the tables are really close together. also, we were so pleasantly surprised because we decided at the last minute to go to dinner on a Friday night. We got on their website at 6:30 PM, got a reservation at 8 and when we arrived at the restaurant we were seated immediately. I don't know if we just got lucky but it was amazing!"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Wish they'd advertise when trampeze is performing. Very mysterious burlesque in another area?"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "I took my long time friend, who was new to Seattle to this wonderful restaurant. We were both impressed with the food and the service. The waiter was very knowledgable and engaging. We had a great time!"
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "This place was great and delish! I would recommend the lasagna with a glass or red wine. Inside setting was beautiful and very calm. Was dinner down with a pink lady drink~ YUM! Can't go wrong here!!!"
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "I just loved this gem. It had great ambiance and amazing food. The waitress (Iris) made wonderful recommendations. My only regret is that I do not live in Seattle. I would eat at the Pink Door all the time. Amazing ...."
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "How odd to have a restaurant without signage....beware! Hard to find, but worth the effort and then not something you'll soon forget. Be sure to make a reservation to avoid disappointment. Most every night they have entertainment, but it doesn't start until later - you may want to choose your dining time accordingly. Service was exquisite and caring.....cheez plate appy to die for! What a great experience.....wished we lived nearby....we'd be there again and again!"
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "The Pink Door came recommended to us by friends and did not disappoint. The food and service was great. Truly a gem and we will be back for sure."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "Romantic setting with light music in the background. We were lucky enough to see an incredibly talented trapeze artist. Great place to hangout with your loved ones. Awesome food and fast service. Will definitely go back."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "What a fun last evening for a vacation. Wonderful food,impeccable service and very unique entertainment. We will definitely come back. My thirteen year old daughter reaaly enjoyed the experience but it was also very directed towards us "adults""
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "Took my daughter here for a graduation-from-college lunch, and she loved it. Great atmosphere and perfect service. We had a variety of dishes and all were delicious, though my lasagna was nothing special (mostly cheese and pesto, with no vegies). My sister said the cioppino was perfect - not rubbery like most places. The beet salad was fantastic, as were the meatball subs. Excellent bread served with lunch, and we immediately went out and tried to find some just like it in the Market. No luck, but you can ask - I think it's sold in Pioneer Square. Overall, a really wonderful lunch in a funky atmosphere, and we will be back!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "the food excellent. however, we really wanted to go for the entertainment aspect,but when we arrived we were told that the trapese artists are only on sundays and mondays, and burlesque seating is a first come first serve with a line out the door starting at 10:00pm. the website was not clear about this."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The food was outstanding, amazing, exquisite!! The oysters on the half shell were the best we have ever eaten and to die for! Can't wait to get back to The Pink Door!!"
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "Dined there recently at the recommendation of many locals. The food was ok, not anything really wow, but where else can you dine while having a trapeze show overhead. I would do it once but I don't anticipate it being one I would return to should i be in the area again."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Dining here was fun, there was a show that had a great vibe to it. Food was really good. Not kid friendly. Food a little pricey for how much you really get. My wife's plate hardly had any food. Mine was similar."
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "I love the pink door! We brought our kids (4&1) and still love this place. Everyone was super nice to our kids but the setting would be more ideal for a date night. The food was amazing and we will definitely return soon."
