Food was very good and staff very friendly. Wine was very expensive and cocktails seemed to have watered booze.

I heard that they had the best Italian in Seattle and I was not disappointed. Everything from the atmosphere and menu to the staff and food took me back to Italy. The server MADE sweet tea for us. The Risotto was fantastic as well as the Beef. Great experience for us.

Amazing as usual. This is my favorite Seattle Restaurant. Every time we are in town, this is a must. Great food, great service, so friendly. Outside dining was extra special last night. See you in August when we’re back in town.

We made reservations for my daughters Birthday. And even though they didn’t have a highchair for her son, they gave us a space with plenty of room for his stroller. They have the best hostess I’ve encountered in a long time. She really wanted to make sure that we were having a good time and that our table was comfortable for everyone. Major kudos to the whole team.
Fantastic job.

Amazing food, and service. The owner welcomed us and gave goodbye both. Only issues were crowding. Felt like we were on top of each other (other people) which made it loud. However i would absolutely go there again.

The dinner salads were very good with lots of ingredients. The main courses less than steller, steamed brocoli and runny mash potatoes as a way to fill a plate are not acceptable for good main entries.

We loved everything about this restaurant!

The carpaccio was sublime. The spaghetti Bolognese was fantastic. And you must order the gnocchi. Delicious little clouds of pasta in a sauce we all had to sample

The cocktails are so good too!

We were seated quickly but it was a little warm inside. Our waiter was outstanding! We shared caprese and while it was simple it was fabulous. We had viewed the menu in advance and I was very much looking forward to their short rib on polenta. Turns out they didn’t have any polenta. Our waiter was quick to offer risotto instead which was quite nice. My husband had rigatoni with wild boar and peppers. He loved it. We were too full for dessert.

I've been to Assagio many times, and always enjoyed my experience there. Not as much this time. Our server was extremely respectful and enabled us to talk extensively without unnecessary interruptions. Much appreciated. The food was not as wonderful this time. We shared orders for Gnocchi, Pollo Marsala and Chicken Parmisiana. I actually didn't taste the Gnocchi but was told it was quite good (and extremely filling). I was underwhelmed by the two chicken entrees. The Chicken Parmisiana was warm, not piping hot, and the pasta side dish overcooked. Pollo Marsala was a better preparation.

Perhaps the kitchen is overwhelmed and too many items are pre-cooked. I'm not sure. I understand that staffing is an issue at many restaurants these days, and must also be the case at Assagio. While the dishes came out from the kitchen much faster than I expected, there's no reason why they wouldn't be served piping hot (unless they had been pre-cooked and then not sufficiently re-heated). Just speculating....

Next time I'll stick to their pasta dishes which require immediate fresh preparation.

Everything about this dining experience was outstanding. We were lucky to get an outdoor corner table under the shade of an oak tree. Our server was super-friendly and witty and knowledgeable. The food was memorable. Yes it was on the expensive side, but excellent value for money.

The food was outstanding! I never had a empty water glass. a the food came out fast! Been in seattle for past few days, and this was the best restuant I went to. I recommend getting the chicken marsala it was delicious! And the cesar, those crutons were amazing!

However it was super expensive for how little food we got- the salad was big however the chicken was a small piece.

The hostess was friendly!


I think our server was the owner and he seemed a bit stressed out
