There are a couple of great appetizers on the menu, but otherwise this was a disappointing visit.
The place is really in the heart of Fremont, that's what got us interested. But the experience is not at all good. We went there for happy hour and the server kept on waiting and not taking it order so that we could miss the happy hour. I finally flagged them down and ordered. I guess that didn't make the server happy, because she kept on insisting we order more food. She asked us four times, whether we will order dinner or not, even after we ordered appetizers and finally we got sick of it and said no. So she, promptly said, I'll get you your checks and came back with checks as if she wanted us to pay and leave. We were hardly there for 30 min. Besides she was very curt in her responses, like she was upset. I would understand such behavior if this place was full, but there were hardly 4 tables taken, rest everything was open!! Such an awful customer service experience. Would never want to go out there again!
Not enough staff. We waited ten minutes to be seated and a half hour for a drink (and one of the five that came was wrong). Only two servers. They doubled as host/ess and bartender. There were six of us for a leisurely meal, so it wasn't a crisis for us (though the delay getting the first drink was annoying) but I wouldn't want to go there thinking I was going to get out in an hour or so. Food was good but a bit on the pricey side, even for a $$ organic restaurant. We didn't know it when we booked but it is a sister restaurant to Tilt, which we had eaten at the night before with other friends and we also found that below par and over-priced (though service was fine).
I’m sure this restaurant has a large appeal for the healthy organic foodie folks. For us, this menu was a challenge to find an entree that had a satiable meat/protein level. We were very hungry after a long morning and just felt we had to order a number of extra starters to feel full.
A favorite brunch spot! Delicious food, bottomless mimosas and excellent service - every time.
Good food, unbelievably chintzy portions. My team went for a business dinner and ordered family-style, which was priced at $48/person. The platters were small and there was barely enough to go around, especially when it came to the entree. It was a plate of salmon filets that we had to halve in order to feed everyone. Ridiculous. Flavors were good, but you do not get what you pay for. Avoid the “family style” option. I’d give it another chance but would order from the regular menu. Disappointing.
Overall our experience was just fine. The service was friendly and quick, and the ambience in the restaurant is very nice. Flavors were good but the food lacked a bit of elegance, especially in the two pastas we ordered. One of them was so much al dente that it bordered on crunchy, which put a damper on the otherwise tasty sauce. The salmon was slightly overcooked and lacked any kind of moisture or sauce on the plate, which I think would have helped the dish overall. All that said, the caprese salad was delicious with very fresh and sweet heirloom tomatoes and the perfect amount of chili oil. The blueberry roast chicken was a standout and we all enjoyed the bites off of my husband's meal (much to his chagrin as we didn't have anything as delicious to trade)! I might try this place again, as the wine list was nice and it looks like if you order properly you could have a good experience. For now, I'm giving it 3 stars because it's just that - average.
Wonderful venue. Delicious food. Value for dollar is great as it relates to quality but portion size is small.
Great experience, and great food. Service was top notch, would recommend to anyone looking for just great quality all around.
Great food, rude service.
The not so basic breakfast is incredible. 10/10 would buy again.
Nothing wrong with the food just wasn't all that flavorful or memorable. Definitely not worth the ~$30 price tags on most dishes. Pasta itself was good and well made but beyond that nothing special in the slightest.
Excellent service and great food.
Cozy place just off Fremont Ave.
Always a great experience!! The wait staff is very knowledgeable and accommodating, and our food was delicious!!
Great food. Good wine. Comfortable and overall a lovely dining experience.
Fathers day brunch exceeded our expectations. The kitchen was slow but the waitress was attentive and kept us informed. The smashed potatoes were the best potatoes I have ever tasted! My husband loved his salmon Benedict on polenta. The salads served with The brunch yesterday and well dressed.
We ordered an appetizer, large pasta, and secondi. This was perfect for sharing for two. The food was good, not amazing, but had a unique Mediterranean/Sicilian flavor, which is what the restaurant is known for.
Better than most me too restaurants in Seattle
Poor recommendation from server for some food items.
Service was slow.
Bill total was incorrect, server had added drinks from another table
to our bill.
Will likely not be returning.
The service was excellent- we got stuck in traffic and they were so understanding and accommodating- the waiter was knowledgeable and very attentive. The food was great - don't miss the carmelized broccoli- and the ambience very nice- It was a lovely evening and we will return soon!
Great appetizers to share and graze. The waiter made a mistake on our order but the food was tasty anyway.
Brought my mother here who was visiting from out of town. I continue to be impressed by the imagination and creativity of Maria Hines to prepare dishes (her pastas, in particular) that are so unique and tasty. We had her ash mafalde, her coffee bean rigatoni and her durum bucatini with pork and beef sugo were all outstanding, tasty and memorable. She also offers wines which complement her Southern Italian cuisine (including Puglia, Calabria, Sardinia and Sicily). We chose a Planeta Cerasuolo di Vittoria which complemented our meal perfectly. It reminded me of a NW Pinot Noir with luscious red fruit and great balance, texture and length.
This was our third visit and we will not be going back again.
Some dishes really tasty, some bland. On the pricey side.
I was very disappointed in the food. I had the chicken and waffles and the gravy was really tasteless.
I would recommend someone going to this restaurant based on the meal I had there before this one. This time we ordered the chef's whim, which seemed more like the chef's leftovers. For a restaurant with such lovely pasta, fresh ingredients, etc. I was quite disappointed with the whim. The potatoes particularly (fingerling) were over salted and microwaved to a point where they were dry and chewy. The limoncello ice cream was very good. The pasta with veggies was average, the salmon was good - the sauce was excellent, but overall, not an inspiring meal. Wish I ordered the lamb!
Four of us had the family style chef’s dinner. Everything was delicious. We had an event to go to after dinner and on a fairly tight time schedule. Server was quite busy but did a good job of getting us out when we needed.
After waiting a long time for our entrees after appetizers, three of the dishes were either cool or downright inedible. The lamb crespelles had a mask of melted cheese on top of the burnt crepes. By mask i mean you could completely lift the cheese off the crepe and shatter it like a cracker. A salmon dish was way overcooked with lukewarm mashed potatoes and a pasta dish had the look being sitting unattended for sometime. So disappointing. While they did comp all the food, there was an air of unapologetic contempt from the server. The broccoli appetizer, however, was super.
Great place in the Fremont neighborhood. Had the surprise menu with the wine selection that we shared, that was a great experience. Would come again.
Brought my mom here for Mother's Day. First of all, they never topped off my mother's cup of coffee.
I paid $14 for ONE octopus tentacle! $14! I guess I should have inquired as to what I was getting before I dove in and ordered it. It came nicely camouflaged in a huge bed of greens.
My pasti primi was so-so. Unremarkable red sauce. My mother's seafood pasta primi was laden with a goodly number of mussels but little else in the way of bona fide seafood. Chinooks' gives you more seafood in their seafood pasta than this place.
I ordered the eggplant as my secondi and it was truly dry and tasteless as if it had been sitting for a long time (we waited a long time for our secondis). It was dressed with a few tomatoes on the side but nothing else covering it.
Only my mother's chicken dish and my IPA beer saved the day.
I hate these places where you get small plates for huge prices.
I will NEVER return here.
Food was great, like the restaurant and atmosphere but Waiter was not friendly at all. That ruins it
Wholesome, creative yet unpretentious food. Amazing service!
Very good waiter and extremely good (and unique!) food.
Everything about agrodolce is superb. Food, wine, ambience. We love coming here for dates and with friends. Also - bonus that it’s organic and they make all their own pasta. Love.
Excellent food and nice ambiance. High quality! We'll definitely go again.
We ordered a number of dishes and shared family style. Everything was good but nothing was ‘crave worthy.’ I would come back.
Ambiance was lovely, relaxed and classy. Service need some improvement in being professional in handling situations, can be more polite and empathetic, they don't like to hear a complain about the food.
We ordered grilled octopus and arancini as appetizers, arugula salad, squid ink pasta with crab and lemon, roast chicken and a glass of mixed blend white wine.
All the food can do with a bit more seasoning, something is missing in the taste, I'm not sure there is love in the food, that's how my food would taste like after an argument with my husband..bland..but that's OK since they have some good quality pink salt on the table to add which we did and it made a big difference.
The wine was so so.
The worst was the chicken came out raw, we sent it back but Chef insisted it was fine since he checked the temperature and because it was dark meat on the bone so that'w why it looked like that. Made us feel inadequate for complaining, I wasn't going to feed my 5 year old raw chicken. The servers just started giving us some bad vibes for complaining..so much for paying customer rights..and I still tipped about 20% because I know how hard work it is to be in service. But suffice to say I will not be returning there nor will I recommend anyone to the restaurant. If I was the manager, I would have apologized and offer something else, maybe dessert or wine to make it up, never ever be condescending but diplomatic.
Our service was terrific. The Seattle Food Week menu was outstanding. Nice evening!
Our server was great and the food was interesting and something new
Pretty disappointed with both the food and the service. My friend and I showed up right at 10 when they opened, and there was only one table seated. We didn't have any special requests and ordered straight off of the brunch menu, but it still took a half an hour to get our food. After 30 minutes my friend's meal arrived, and i was told it would be just a bit longer because my poached egg did not turn out right and they had to re do it.
When my meal did finally arrive (I ordered the chicken and waffles) the waffle was soggy, the skin on the chicken was mush and the chicken itself was a bit dry. It was as if it had been sitting under a heat lamp for the last 30 minutes.
The waitress gave me my mimosa for free, which was nice, but it didn't make up for the extremely slow service and the lackluster food. I won't be too quick to go back, at least not for brunch.
