Diner Reviews
  • "My wife & I dined at the Pink door in mid July and had an exceptional dinner. We were seated out on the deck which we had requested thru our open table reservation. From the unmarked industrial looking dusty pink door in the alleyway to the final dessert this was just one great dining experience. We ordered a crimini mushroom, barata and squash blossum flatbread, a new york strip steak, linguini and clams and closed with a nectarine crostini with vanilla gelato. This is not a steak house and yet this was the tenderest and best seasoned strip steak we may have ever tasted. The view was brilliant looking out onto Puget Sound at sunset. Nice experience all the way around."

  • "Food didn't disappoint - was as good as some Italian I had in Italy! Wait staff was fantastic all around. Restaurant was really flexible to work with as we had a big group and wanted to handle the bill discreetly. Will definitely come back and recommend TPD in the future!"

  • "Even though my dining partner was 45 min late, the staff was friendly and attentive. I had a wickedly dirty martini and some antipasto, and they brought me the gluten free bread and extra fresh mozz I asked for. I tried the chilled rose they had on special and I am wishing I had several bottles at home. All in all a lovely time."

  • "We had a lunch date at the Pink Door to celebrate our 10-year anniversary. We enjoyed a lovely spot in a quiet part of the outdoor dining area, despite there being a fairly large crowd the day we visited. The food was top notch, as usual. Excellent service, terrific food, and reasonable prices. Try a fresh peach crostata to finish your meal--DELICIOUS! You can't beat the view or the ambience. We'll be back!"

  • "Our reservation was made for the wrong time on open table and when I received a confirmation email I called the restaurant and te manager politely informed me that the deck was booked but they would find some space for myself and my date. They did! And it was a lovely corner table w an unobstructed view if the sound. Our server was friendly, unobtrusive, made lovely suggestions (the heirloom tomatoe bruschetta was amazing) and kept the drinks coming. All in all a 4.8 out of 5 star experience."

  • "We went to the Pink Door for dinner and got a great spot on the patio. The service was good and the food was outstanding, as were the cocktails. For food, we got a nice assortment of the prosciutto, mussels, risotto, and lamb. Super delicious and we can't wait to go back!"

  • "Our waitress was absolutely wonderful and really enhanced our dining experience. She was super knowledgeable about the menu and made great recommendations for appetizers and desserts. The cheese plate was spectacular - highly recommend. And the Nectarine dessert was simply out of this world! The entree's though... well, disappointing. There were 5 of us, and none of us loved what we ordered. I got the scallops and they were not good... too much sauce on the plate, hard green beans with cold, gross white sauce on top, and a very bland potato type thing. Also, and this may sound petty, our table cloth was ugly... We ate on the patio, and if I were to go back, I'd sit inside and hopefully get the same great waitress."

  • "Came in for early dinner prior to a show. Servers were attentive and knowledgeable. Food was good, but it wasn't great. It's just not one of the restaurants that I would personally rush back to visit."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Outdoor rooftop dining is great, weather permitting. Wait-staff are attentive and personable. Food is excellent. Seasonal cocktails, not so good. I would stick with ordering your regular call drinks that aren't so creative."

  • "You walk out on to the deck and the view right away is amazing! Then comes the great wine list, appetizers, dinner, and dessert! Overall amazing time, all aspects."

  • "This place just isn't worth the price and we are used to spending significant money on dinner. It's just ok. the Risotto was good but advertised as having crab. there was one bite of crab in the dish. The salmon was overcooked and we didn't sent it back because on the advice of the waiter we ordered it medium rather than medium rare...he basically said it would be bloody if we ordered it medium rare. The almond chicken was also overcooked and a bit dry and even a litte burned. The wine just wasn't good...an $89 bottle of Amarone that wasn't even close to worth the price. It was wine, but just not a good choice for the menu and seemed really overpriced for the taste. The waiter seemed nervous and not really knowledgeable."

  • "The highly recommended lasagna was fantastic. Did not disappoint at all. However, the bologenese was just okay. Standard at any other Italian restaurant. Not bad, but nowhere near the level of the lasagna. The waiter at times disappeared or seemed annoyed."

  • "My mom was recently visiting and I took her to the Pink Door for lunch. We had a lovely table outside with a view and a delicious meal. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. I had not been to the Pink Door in years and was reminded what a great Seattle establishment this is and will definitely be coming back this summer."

  • "It was fun trying to find the place.... People were all nice.. Was a little dark in there for me to read the menu but I managed. Thank you all very much!"

  • "What is that about? At least three varieties of Chardonnay are offered by the bottle but not by the glass. Also was certain my reservation was for outdoor dining and did not get seated outside until dessert. Kinda disappointed in the experience."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "The evening got off to a rocky start when one of the water glasses arrived at the table with food crusted on the side. I ordered the Calamari app., but I am not sure what I got. It was long pieces of some seafood (the size of slender hand cut fries) with spinach in a Marinara. It was OK, but definitely not like any Calamari I have ever had. Entrees ranged from pretty good (my Pappardelle al Ragu Bolonese (well cooked and with a nice flavor) to Rigatoni and Mama's Meatballs (chewy -definitely not al Dente - pasta with weird tasting meatballs). It was like the episode of Everybody Loves Raymond where Marie gives Debra the wrong spices to make her signature meatballs. These were what Debra must have produced. We skipped dessert."

  • "To start at the beginning, the reservations were very easy and I was given a chance to pick where I wanted to sit. This is the perfect place to go for a nice date. The food was delicious, the waitstaff was helpful and attentive, the atmosphere was very romantic, and the menu was slightly erotic. The novelty of a trapeze performance (only on Sundays) easily set the date apart. The pricing is very good compared to other resteraunts of similar nature, not to mention the location in pikes place allows for plenty of fun after dinner activities."

  • "Unique dining experience . Great food, even better service. Great place for a date or small group of people. Friendly hardworking staff. Great location. I would recommend calling ahead for a reservation. If your a local and you haven't been here yet then give it a try its very nice despite being located in tourist central just above the first Starbucks and Pike Place Market. I won't say anything about the entertainment, except its great and you should experience it for yourself. Enjoy!"

  • "Dining on the patio overlooking Puget Sound on a Summer evening is wonderful and the food is equally amazing. Love this restaurant and we will be back!"

  • "The Pappradelle Bolognese is our favorite. Cooked to perfection, slightly al dente once combined with the sauce. Filling, but lunch entree boxed for the following day is included."

  • "I chanced upon this restaurant years ago (mostly because it has no sign so got me curious) but only got to eat here last year and again this past weekend. It was my guy's birthday so I thought he would enjoy eating here at The Pink Door. The service was impeccable and they got us a corner table on the patio overlooking the Sound. Even though the atmosphere was convivial, it was quite romantic for the two of us and the food was delicious, as usual! Get the antipasto plate!"

  • "I love everything about this restaurant. The environment was wonderful, the waitress was friendly and helpful and the food was outstanding...and you have to have dessert there...so yummy for my tummy. We went back for lunch a few days later and it was still outstanding. will come back again and again and again. Highly recommended ."

  • "This is the most popular place for a reason. Reserve in advance. We loved it so much the first night that we returned on our second night in Seattle. The Italian food is excellent. Staff is lovely. Everything was perfect. I highly recommend it."

  • "The Pink Door used to be a classy and cool place to go to dinner. It was good for a romantic occasion. Not anymore. It's way too loud, and there's no expectation for how people should dress. There were people there with their baseball hats on (backwards) and wearing flip-flops! This is certainly not what I was looking for when I made a reservation to take my girlfriend out for her birthday dinner. We will not be back.... It's too bad because the food and the service were both really great."

  • "I had been wanting to go to The Pink Door for years so when we finally went, I was worried it wouldn't live up to my expectations. Turns out I didn't need to worry. :) The decor, service and food were all amazing. I highy recommend the Cocchi-Belli cocktail and the scallops for dinner. My husband had the peppersteak and it was also great. We didn't have room for dessert but the dessert menu was very tempting. Also, we ate early-ish so didn't see any of the entertainment. However, trust me, you don't need the entertainment to make this restaurant worth a visit. We will definitely be back to The Pink Door next time we're in Seattle!"

  • "My wife and I had a very enjoyable time here. the service was fantastic and the food really good at a reasonable price. We were surprised that our server offered a lap blanket when the air got chilly. It was a first, and my wife was 'warmed' by the experience."

  • "My husband and I joined a local couple for dinner at the Pink Door. We were able to sit outside. The view of the water was wonderful. The food was out of this world. And the service was some of the best I've ever experienced. Run as fast as you can to eat there!"

  • "My mother and I ate here on the evening of Saturday June 21st while visiting Seattle. I had heard great things about The Pink Door and was not disappointed. We were seated on the deck and were able to enjoy our meal al fresco since the weather was pleasant. My mother raved about her lasagna while I very much enjoyed my spring lemon risotto. Kudos to Terrance for the great service too!"
