About

Branzino restaurant is located in the Belltown neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. The quaint restaurant features both a bar area and tables for dining. Dim lighting and dark wood give a cozy, romantic atmosphere perfect for a date night. On a pleasant evening, dine on the patio out in the front of the restaurant. Branzino not only offers a wine list, but allows customers to bring a wine of their choice and only charges a small corkage fee to cork and pour it.

Branzino serves Italian cuisine. The grilled octopus and the beet salad are both popular starter options. Dish choices include such entrees as pappardelle bolognese, mussels and the namesake branzino.

The Arugula salad with Beets and the Prosciutto Olio Pizza were excellent as was the
Prosciutto Olio Pizza we had once before. Maybe the best of all three we have ever had.

Sadly though, When an Italian restaurant at 5pm (opening time) on Tuesday is out of the
main pasta on the menu something is really wrong. This place always seems to be out of various things now including coffee that a friend wanted recently.

Attitude and very minimal service also explains why this 4th. time visit for us will be
our last.

Music (modern) was so loud we asked twice to have it turned down.

We think we know why the entire time we were in the restaurant there was only one
other couple who came in to dine.

This used to be a great restaurant and they even offered Lamb at times but something
has gone really wrong .

Sad.

The pasta my husband and I had had the texture and shape of chewing gum or mochi. It didn't have the shape of pasta at all and very very stretchy. My husband said he almost choked several times. It was so weird. We never had pasta like that. The worst pasta by far. We'll never go there again.

We had been to this restaurant a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it. But this time was very disappointing. We were the only people in the restaurant and several wines were crossed off the list with a felt pen. The salads we ordered were mostly lettuce greens and were very unremarkable. The pasta dish we shared was good but small and overpriced. The restaurant is pretty and cozy, but I wonder if they are closing?

The service was great, the food was delicious, and prices were reasonable. It is not in the heart of Belltown so finding parking wasn't bad at all. I had been wanting to try the restaurant nod will definitely go back.

The service was attentive and fast. Particularly for a speacilty food menu. The food itself was well presented and tasted even better. The wine list was substantial but, not overwhelming and the suggestions were great. It's a wonderful and romantic place for an evening with your sweetheart. It made our Valentines weekend superb!

Went in for the whole fish - their speciality filleted at the table. It was a delicious fish, but way too many very sharp bones to navigate. Menu is pretty limited - same items from a year ago when we were there. We will not be back - will find a new spot to try.

This was my second time there and I was hoping for a better experience. After they completely ruined a special occasion the first time, this time wasn't much better. Again, half their menu wasn't available because 'the order didn't come in.' This must happen a lot there. This time we ended up not ordering dinner and going elsewhere because everything we came there for, yet again, wasn't available. They also have very poor service from the second you walk in the door - no one greats you. Even if you call, it takes forever for them to pick up and when they answer with 'hello?' Not 'thank you for calling Branzinos. This is ...' Or something to that effect. So unprofessional. When I called to change the time of the reservation, the person I talked to didn't even relay the message and they almost gave my table away. It's just one thing after another and we won't be going back and making sure our friends don't waste time or money there. Disappointed.

When we walked in, music was blaring. After two requests it was reduced.

The food was fair but without real significance. No outstanding dishes, lacksidasical staff. Dark décor. Tried three dishes, none of which struck me as special. No suggestions from the waitress. More as if the entire experience was bland.
