Barolo Ratings and Reviews
We were really looking forward to a great event for our son's 40th birthday party while visiting Seattle from out of town, but unfortunately we were not overly impressed with the experience at Barolo's. Our server for a group of 12 (she needed help!) was abrupt with her presentations and take aways, and it seemed like she hardly had any time for us. Not great seating, VERY noisy, food was fair, but we were happy as a family to be there together and had a good time as a group.
We were late because of traffic and when we called to let them know the hostess was lovely and told us not to worry. The place was full but our table was waiting when we finally arrived. We now were in a rush as we only had 35 minutes to eat before leaving for the theater. Our waitress was terrific, put a rush on in the kitchen, and we had a delicious plate of mushroom ravioli in no time. We will definitely be back when we can take our time to savor all this great restaurant has to offer.
I like Barolo for the food and the service. Their staff is authentically warm and time sensitive. I arrive there via bike and they are courteous about absorbing obnoxious safety jacket and paniers into their coat closet....really lovely front desk team and nice servers.
And warm lighting, candles and cozy well done meals - I'll go back.
Food and service are excellent! I would suggest trying the Wild Boar with polenta. Amazing.
The cannoli was pretty darn close to tasting like my Grandma's recipe.
The only thing that keeps me from five stars on ambiance is the plastic chairs at the tables. They are so uncomfortable and make the place seem a little cold.
This wasn't our first time to Barolo. We've dined there a dozen times or more. Barolo offers great food in a beautiful dining room (except for the view of McD across the street!). The service is impeccable and the wine list is lovely.
We will continue to include Barolo in our dining repertoire.
(Shout out for their sister restaurant Mama Melina. Another favorite, neighborhood gem near UVillage)
This was my second time to visit Barolo and, again, it was an excellent experience. The service was friendly, cheerful and “light” - Jessica, our server, has a wonderful approach with people! The food was just perfect - fresh, cooked to perfection, and just the right portion size. I will be back!
Absolutely fabulous! My fiance ordered the lamb shank, the featured entree of the night, and I ordered the Filet de Borolo and Portobello mushroom. Both were just to die for!! The lamb was falling off the bone and by far had the most meat ive ever seen on any cut of lamb. The filet, rare, was tender and peppered to perfection. A+ on the sauce pairings as well. I wont even get started on the dessert 👌👌👌
I arrived an hour early and they still seated me graciously. It's an unassuming small restaurant tucked into the corner of the building with great food. The candles and flowing white sheer curtains create a very up-scale New York vibe. The Penn noodles with salmon and asparagus were wonderfully paired and full of smoked salmon flavor. The servers are very attentive. The small bar is dark and intimate and I'd suggest you start there before your meal.
My wife and another couple wanted a tasty, quality dining experience, checked out Barolo on Tripadvisor and a couple of other places. It was very good. A great menu, excellent selection of Italian wines, and a great server. I have the octopus appetizer, which was outstanding, and the beet salad, also excellent. Everyone else loved their meals. Enjoy!
Just the thought of the wonderful meal I enjoyed has me drooling. We started with a grilled salad that was what I’d describe as their version of a Caesar and worth writing home about. Garlic was the star of this dish in the best of ways.
Next up the ravioli of the day. Ricotta and prucuitto with a cream sauce and wild mushrooms. This house made pasta melted in your mouth and was worth every calorie.
Our secondi was veal scallopini and if I thought I could get away with licking the plate, I would have. First off the plate was absolutely beautiful. In addition to the extremely tender, melt in your mouth veal, it also included a beautiful side of spinach, a wonderful long/thin carrot and a couple of slices of Yukon gold potatoes.
We finished our meal with tiramisu. It included a wonderful blend of textures and flavors.
I would not hesitate to go back. Did I mention the drooling.
The food was not worth the price, the crab pasta dish was bland. My coffee was lukewarm. The squid appetizer was good. My daughter wrote a white dress and after sitting at table the back of her dress had black marks, some substance rubbed off onto her dress.
Excellent foot and service and I love the decor. The only issue is the noise and specifically the music level in the dining room is unreasonably loud. Table of three we almost had to shout to hear each other. With the high ceilings and bare floor there is nothing to muffle the sound. They need to decide if they are a club or a restaurant.
Really really noisy!! I could not talk to my daughter who was only a few feet from me. The coho salmon special was fantastic - melt in your mouth but not on the menu, only for specials. I was not impressed by the desserts - we tried the poached pear and the cannoli and both were so so. For better food and atmosphere we go to La Fontana Siciliana in Belltown.
Grilled cesear salad and lamb burger are my favorite. Food overall us excellent, and I'll return for a date night with my husband. The service has improved since I was last there--friendly, professional. Lunch time was quiet, and I hope this restaurant receives it's due accolades!
I love this restaurant, they serve up yummy bread with olive tepanade on the table, which is divine. My favorite dish is the fettuccine al granchio, house made pasta with alaskan king crab, EVOO, garlic, pepperoncino and organic grape tomatoes. My husband had the Ahi Tuna tartare which was lovely, the children shared the spagettini with claims.
Our second visit to Barolo was definitely not as good as the first. Our calamari starter was only just barely warm and the clams were loaded with sand (at least they were fresh;). Our entrees were equally unspectacular, pasta with crab was super fishy and salty, pasta w lamb ragu was too al dente and half-moon pasta with truffle was average.
