We are following CDC guidelines and protocols, 50% capacity with 6ft social distance between seated tables and no bar seating. Maximum party size will be 6 guests, therefore large group dining will not be available. 

Public Health Seattle & King County issued a new COVID-related directive, that advises all residents to keep their faces covered in indoor settings, including restaurants, whether fully vaccinated or not.

Since 1994, Café Campagne has built a regional and national reputation as Seattle's foremost classic French restaurant. Located just along the historic Post Alley of the Pike Place Market, we offer a dining experience that is exceptional in traditional food & wine, and comfortable in ambiance and service. A Parisian café tucked into Pike Place Market’s Post Alley, not to be missed!

The food was a bit heavy handed. Duck Confit was dry and Boeuf Bourguignon was too salty. This has been a very good restaurant and we're hoping that they get their groove back after the long covid shutdown.

I have been eating at Café Campagne for many years. The food is delicious. They use only the best ingredients and it always tastes like I'm back in France! I love sitting outside and watching the Market activity. But I must call out the service - it is always amazing. This time we had Paul. He was so professional, yet warm and friendly. He made our lunch extra special. THANK YOU Café Campagne for being a neighborhood gem.

Cafe Campagne had just reopened when we visited and we're glad they reopened!! It was a good experience even though you could feel they were still ramping up. The food never disappoints. Worth a stop while visiting the Pike Place Market as it takes you away from the hustle and bustle of the market and serve you a very good meal.

We went for Quiche but they were out of all Quiche and all bakery goods. Had cassoulet
that was good--as always. The service was mediocre. I have had better service there before. This was an off experience. This is normally one of my favorite restaurants around the Market.

We found this little gem the last trip we took to Seattle back in 2018. We went back on this trip out and were not disappointed. The food was amazing, the ambiance was so quaint, and the service incredible. We will be back again the next time we find ourselves in Seattle WA. Thank you !

A brilliant combination of poor service and barely inedible food drags the once hallowed Campagne restaurant deeper into the dustbin of 1980's and '90's Seattle culinary history. We ordered three lunch entrees and a side for three people. The server got 3 of the 4 orders wrong, but did so quite slowly to heighten the frustration. Service continued at a languid, incompetent pace from beginning to end, although our obviously inexperienced wait person was kind enough and smiled, and the ambience in the middle of the Market is nice, so if you had an americano and croissant and didn't have any place better to be and weren't in a rush it would be lovely. My Dungeness crab quiche had a custard-like creaminess, but was very light on so-called crab meat. My wife's soup of the day -- dumplings in soup -- involved a couple of flavorless doughy balls and some green tinted water for broth. She barely ate it and regretted she did not send it back. Ditto for our friend. Another highlight was the fresh french bread and butter. Alas, we have moved on and shall not visit this establishment again, and but for the unwitting tourists, I assume it will wither and die and a better use will be found for a lovely little corner restaurant in an ideal location on Post Alley.

Cafe Campagne has been my very favorite lunch/breakfast (and sometimes dinner) spot in Seattle for more than 2 decades. I can't even count the number of times I've been here for birthdays and meetings and visits with out-of-towners, and just-because lunches - and all the friends and family and professional colleagues I've had join me. I've never had an experience that wasn't fabulous - until yesterday. It wasn't horrible by any means, but since Open Table asked... our service wasn't up to par. Of all the amazing restaurants in Seattle, I suggested CC for lunch with my LA agent for her first visit to Seattle. I had requested my favorite table in the reservation and sure enough, we were seated there (thank you!). But, when the young man who was our server looked at me and said, "And the gentleman will have?" - and I am very much female, there's seriously no question - things got weird. He caught himself right away and was super embarrassed, apologizing for the mistake - I guess he was just on autopilot? Then when I asked for the wine-by-the-glass menu a bit later while I picked out a wine, I didn't see him for a good 20 minutes (someone else brought our lunch). When I did see him, I had to wave him down to finally order that glass of wine and hand him back the menu. He'd forgotten. Then, we were left for quite some time after we'd finished our meals, plates still on the table, and my agent had to leave to catch a flight. Since she was paying, she caught our server's attention by showing him her credit card and it seems, sadly, this offended all the staff for some reason. We received no "thank you", no "enjoy your day" as we left - just tight-lipped faces and eyes averted when they came to pick up our plates and deliver the receipt, etc. Honestly, I was kind of shocked. And embarrassed. I've never had that kind of treatment here in more than 20 years! I will try not to let it tarnish my love for CC, but I thought you should know.

The table next to us was so loud that we couldn't have a conversation! Our intention to order mussels and pomme frites (shown on online menu) was thwarted by a change of menu due to Valentine's weekend. Sadly disappointed by a very special place.

Cafe Campagne has THE best, most authentic cassoulet in town. Multiple meats cooked with beans and served in a crock with excellent seasonings. Also the French Onion soup was loaded with onions topped with gooey cheese on bread. Very very good!! Service was excellent as well. Our favorite French place! Still miss the upstairs Campagne restaurant.

We had one of the best meals in memory, enhanced by attentive and very professional service, the spacious, cozy back room, and Campagne's lively location in the Pike Place Market. Surprisingly, it was less expensive than I would have estimated given the quality of every dish.
