About How To Cook A Wolf
This neighborhood restaurant atop Queen Anne is cozy and intimate. As a nod to the restaurant’s literary namesake, Chef David Glass repeatedly impresses by doing so much from this tiny kitchen. The continually changing, Italian-inspired menu focuses on smaller plates and fresh, daily-made pastas, typically enjoyed family style in the warm, wood-clad dining room. Stop by the Queen Anne Farmer's Market before dinner, and you might see Chef Glass gathering ingredients for that night's menu. Have dinner at the bar and sip Prosecco while watching the kitchen create.

How To Cook A Wolf Ratings and Reviews
So pleased with our experience here from the food to the service to the cocktails. We were able to try some new dishes and the small plates were spaced out perfectly. My wife and I had many options to choose from for a nice dinner and this did not disappoint.
Absolutely a nice experience of my birthday night. A super lovely place with great food and services, 20% service fee was included but totally worth it.
We tried the oysters, beet salad, roast half chicken, chicken liver mousse and 2 kind of pastas: spaghetti and bucatini; had cannoli and passion fruit sorbet for dessert. Chicken liver mousse is a MUST TRY!! Savory and very flavorful with the crackers. Cannoli was also super great!
Will definitely go again :)
Every dish we had was amazing and I love that it's family style! Our server was attentive and gave us great recommendations. We ordered the beet salad, polenta fritters, gnocchi, and bucatini. The bucatini was my favorite dish but is a little heavy on the black pepper. Their cocktails are also pricey but delicious!
Fantastic service....thank you, Joey. Watching chef David and his team prepare our incredible meal was entertaining. Every course was beautiful in both presentation and taste. We will add 'How to Cook a Wolf' to our favorites list and are looking forward to our return visit next time we are in Seattle.
Table was still in use so promptly seated at bar. Joe got us a drink and made us feel right at home. Drinks, Oysters and apps were amazing. Meg(I think that was her name) took care of us and once table opened up got us seated. Food amazing. Hospitality excellent. Putting Wolf as a regular stop on our future dining dancecard.
Absolutely spectacular meal from the first course to the last. The carpaccio, burrata with sunchokes & kale salad were perfection. Then there's just nothing as amazing as their homemade pastas and all the plates are perfect for sharing. Exactly the night out my husband & I were hoping for...we will be back!
First, this restaurant is not big, make a reservation and expect to be in close proximity to the table next to you. That being said the overall vibe is awesome! Cork tables, barrel walls, copper accents, and just an upbeat vibe. Was actually greeted by the chef and chatted with him while the host was returning from a table.
Second, the food is awesome! Most of the meal comes as shareable with others at the table. Wife and I split three dishes plus a desert and it was perfect! The Bruschetta was four large servings and was great, play on flavor of the apple, pickled onion, goat cheese and pear butter was great. Second course was the Halibut and it was just perfect, there isn't much more to say about that. Third course was the Gnocchi, as my wife described them as little pillows of awesomeness. The sauce was spicy and delicious while the pork cracklin added flavor and texture! For desert we had the Chocolate/Peanut Butter Terrine with banana ice cream and it was lick the plate good!
Service was good, server took some getting used to, didn't show a ton of emotion but he warmed to us by the end of the meal.
As I mentioned above, this is a small place and it can be a bit on the loud side. With close proximity and an open kitchen there is just a general volume level that you get used to. Not horrible but if quiet/intimate candle light dinner is what you are going for, this might not be it.
This is what I have come to expect from an Ethan Stowell establishment.
This is our 2nd time here, and enjoyed it just as much as the first. The food is always great and service was amazing. We had reservations which I believe is always recommended because of the smaller seating arrangement. The best is the bread, but again all the dishes from pasta to pork loin was delicious.
This place is INCREDIBLE! Just order it, seriously! The raw beef, the raw fish, the plantains, pastas, oysters, desert, everything! Just when you think you're full, you're wrong. This menu is an adventure in culinary artistry! Bold, but light, acidic but sweet, balanced in char and sear. I am so happy we found you, our little Seattle adventure was capped off with the best dining experience we have had on the west coast. We loved every moment. Even after closing (well after) our server made sure we had the best and most significant and inclusive experience. We are so honored to have been in your staffs and chefs hands. Well done!
This is my second visit to How To Cook A Wolf, I loved it so much the first time, I decided to share my experience on a first date with someone.
My experience was automatically off to a great start, because the Manager Meg remembered my name ! I had only been here once before, 2-3 months ago. Now that is a great memory and helps bring down first date nerves !
The first time i visited the restaurant it blew my socks off, and it would be very hard to beat that experience...yet the second time i visited turned out to be an even better experience.
My date had a few food intolerances to yogurt, milk, cheese etc. Our server was very accommodating and had the chefs separate the ingredients or substitute with alternatives. That extra effort goes a long way in my eyes to ensure everyone can experience their delicious food menu ! We also brought 2 bottles of wine to uncork, they didn't blink an eye, chilled the white and poured every time our glasses were nearing empty :)
Before we knew it, we had been there 2 1/2 hours and it was closing time ! Great atmosphere, great service, delicious food (scallops are a must) !
If you haven't tried this hidden gem, put it on your list !
Thanks to everyone there for making it a great night !
