A word from Vito's Restaurant & Lounge
Vito’s is an iconic 21 and over restaurant and lounge located on First Hill. Opened in 1953, it has a history rich in cocktail culture, organized crime and east coast, family style Italian food.

In April of 2010, Jeff Scott and Greg Lundgren purchased this Seattle institution and began a major restoration of the space. Their goal is to return Vito’s to the glamor and style of the 1950s, respect its colorful past and set the course for a 21st-century resurrection. Over the years the club has fallen into disrepair and poor alterations. They have replaced the dance floor with a performance space centered around a grand piano, with lounge singers, jazz trios and Lynchian curiosities that will dazzle and entertain into the early morning.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "I love Vito's--great cocktails, live Brazilian jazz, delicious food, what more could you ask for?! A perfect spot for sipping drinks by candlelight with your date or to go with a group friends for a big night out."

  • "I hadn't been to this Seattle icon for decades, but I went there a couple of years ago for a friend's birthday party. The food was surprisingly good, and we had the privilege of hearing Ruby Bishop perform. She also is a Seattle icon not to be missed, talented and charming. We have been there many times since then. The food and service are always a cut above, and we have never been disappointed in the music. We love Johnny Astro, and we enjoyed the Tarantellas when we chanced to catch them. Kind of looks like we have become regulars. . ."

  • "Sorry to say, this is no the Vito's of long ago. Poor service, dingy and food lacking."

  • "We came to listen to a favorite group of musicians and decided to arrive early and have dinner. The food was very tasty and the service cheery and responsive. I really appreciated that our server took the time to break up the bill based on our individual orders and how some dishes were split. I'd return to savor the dining experience without the band."

  • "Our only real disappointment was how "petite" the glassses of wine were at happy hour. We like this place but probably will cross it off our list unless that changes."

  • "The service was excellent, including recommendations and thorough explanations on cocktails and dishes. The food was pretty good, portions were great, and prices were fair. An easy place to get a drink and a meal before an event at Town Hall. Atmosphere was loud, but cozy at the same time. I'd go back again for sure."

  • "We were looking forward to having dinner at Vito's but were deeply disappointed. The food was marginal at best and the cost far exceeded the quality. It was very noisy and the temperature inside was cool, however, when we asked the server if the heat could be turned up, it appeared that he was able to accommodate us. The server in general was courteous and did an acceptable job. This was my wife's birthday and we had relatives with us, so in all we were not pleased with the experience. Sorry, I really wished I was able to give the evening more positive comments."
