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.

Overall good experience - Had a mix of happy hour and dinner menu items. The good: Great choices on happy hour menu; great happy hour oysters; great service; great tasting food. The not-so-good: Restaurant is really dark (OK when eating but hard when trying to read the menu); Parking is expensive; and portions are small ($30 black cod was two portions of maybe 2 oz each with no starch included). Would recommend for an upscale happy hour date or a special occasion.

My boyfriend and I went to this restaurant for Valentine's Day and had a great experience! The tables each had one long stemmed red rose, which was a really nice touch! The menu was a 4 course menu specifically for Valentine's Day, which was $95 per person. The first 2 courses were shared appetizers that were pretty substantial and included oysters, bruschetta, pork belly, pasta and some other things. The desserts were also amazing! The main course was pretty good.

The ambience and service at this restaurant are great. It is a high end restaurant that still keeps a casual atmosphere without being sloppy, which is why this is a great restaurant for special occasions but also for a night out to dinner. I want to try their brunch menu next!

We went on Valentine's Day expecting the normal Ethan Stowell experience, but were incredibly disappointed. The food tasted very "assembly line" and posts of the preparation were completely left off (dressings, etc).

Appetizers were dry and bland. Valentines meal was overpriced for quality.

Food took a long time to arrive, seemed like our waiter thought we had all the time in the world. 1 dish (wife’s) pasta came out not cooked enough, we sent it back. my burger and fries were excellent but I did not want to eat without my wife , so we talked and my food got cold, waiter did not seem to care and didn’t offer to warm my plate or give my wife something to nibble on while waiting for her dish. It took for ever for her dish to come back out. Waiter was oblivious to our waiting. Ran into asst mgr when leaving and he ask how everything was, I hesitated but told him what our experience was like, he didn’t seem to care, he could have offered to discount our bill, offer us a free appatizer for next time, but nothing. We will not be back.

Food was excellent. The Ct opus appetizer was so wonderful I could have eaten a whole plate of it. The lobster ravioli and scallops were also excellent. The restaurant is a bit dark but nice and views are great from some tables. Service was very good.
