Approachable sophisticated Pacific Northwest cuisine, simply prepared using the finest regional ingredients and served in a dining room with maritime-inspired design and sweeping views of Elliott Bay.

Ethan Stowell and Four Seasons Hotel Seattle are thrilled to announce the name of their new restaurant collaboration: Goldfinch Tavern. Named for the state bird of Washington, the American goldfinch.

The upscale tavern pays homage to the city’s pioneer days, when taverns catered to lumberjacks and sailors alike, providing a place for travelers and locals to both socialize and conduct business, all while enjoying drinks and food.

Brunch menu. Eggs Benedict with crab was perfectly balanced, but needed an in-house bread Or brioche. Burger was cooked to correct temp. Service was on point, managed every request. Great overall experience.

Best brunch of my life!! Went for my birthday with friends and it was amazing. Bottomless mimosas, amazing brunch buffet spread with an entree plus they brought out a personal birthday dessert! Tom was our server and he was so nice, took our photo and did not let any of our beverages run dry. I will be back for another/every special occasion.

As I ordered a house salad and then the tuna for dinner, the man who took our order (our waiter changed after that, and our second waiter was excellent) asked me if I wanted bacon and avocado on my salad. I said sure. I've never been asked such a question before for a dinner salad, and just figured they were items that he was offering. When the bill came, my little first course dinner salad had turned into a $23 salad. I was so surprised and somewhat upset. I felt he had been very incorrect in (1) asking the question in the first place and (2) not indicating there was a huge extra charge. I didn't want to complain in the moment because I was with my very sensitive teenage daughter. I've gone to Goldfinch several times and had positive experiences, but this was so negative, that I doubt I'll return for dinner.

Very attentive thoughtful service. Food wasn’t as good as one would hope. Restaurant was busy, Friday evening, kind of loud. My duck was delicious, friend’s lobster ravioli was flavorless. Her dessert, chocolate cake, was dry with a schmear of ice cream. Server promptly took offending cake away, brought a scoop of ice cram immediately.
Location is great, so nice to have valet parking.

We tried Goldfinch because we had enjoyed the former Arts cafe when visiting SAM. The new version makes sense. Not inexpensive but high quality as one would expect. One nasty surprise was the $17 charge for "validated" valet parking. It's a pity they abandoned the former policy (4 hours free), at least for museum visitors, and their disclosure was non-existent ("yes, we validate").
The 20% service charge is understandable, but with that plus no break on parking, Goldfinch becomes a no-go for museum-goers like us.

My only complaint is that the food is much too salty.
