Barolo was nice. Service was efficient and friendly, if not particularly engaging. Food started out fantastic - grilled marinated octopus was delicious and plentiful. I'd go back for the carbonara alone - it was truly awesome. Our second pasta dish of mezzalune and truffle was very nice, but paled against the carbonara! Sadly, the sirloin steak they so kindly split for our entree was, for lack of a better word, mushy. It had clearly been 'jacquarded' with giant needle marks throughout that is an indicator of lower quality meat. Then the texture was as if the steak had been reheated. With a bland sauce and plain, slightly overcooked vegetables, the whole dish was a sore disappointment. I apologize for not having said anything on the evening, but they were busy and I wasn't sure how the waiter would handle the situation. Overall though a solid evening that we thoroughly enjoyed.
We were there for a birthday which has become a tradition. The food was good. We had a little trouble communicating with our server but it was okay.
Excellent dinner. Food was outstanding. Wine selection was extensive.
We had an excellent server but the osso buco was far from excellent. All in all, a nice place but not 5 stars.
Barolo never fails to deliver! The food and service were impeccable! The staff is so inviting and helpful from when you walk in the door to when you walk out the door!
Everything was great except for the lobster risotto that was extremely salty. They re-do it for us but wasn’t that good after all.
I ordered Osso bucco and it was phenomenal. My two dining companions enjoyed rigatoni that was out of this world. The calamari appetizer was a great starter. Alessandro delivered impeccable service. All in all a terrific evening and dining experience. It’s clearly five stars.
We visited during Seattle Restaurant week this time and the 3 course menu choices were varied and delicious. Between the four of us, we covered all the choices. This is also one of the best places for Happy Hour in Seattle if you are a foodie!
We had an excellent meal during restaurant week. Food and service were both excellent. We will definitely be going back.
Best restaurant in Seattle!
Really fantastic Italian dishes. Loved the veal carpaccio, great salads, perfect ravs, sea bass portion too small, rack of lamb was plentiful. Biggest issue is noise: happy hour is rambunctious! Excellent wait staff. We'll go again. :)
My friends birthday party and it was disappointing that 5/6 meals were not great. Overpriced and we were stuck in a corner when we originally booked the king table. They let the party who was before our booking start 1.5 hrs late which went over into our reservation. Not sure I will recommend or go back again. All of my friends were not happy with their meal.
Barolo was a great place to take my wife for our anniversary
The venue was not as intimate as I would have liked for a romantic evening but I would have sat on the curb in that gown for the food they served. I am going to dream about that food for a long time. The bar has been set.
Our 4th visit to Barolo. The food and wait staff(servers, runners and bussers) are wonderful the FOH hostesses are less than friendly. First time? Maybe a fluke...but 4x is def a pattern.
It’s not that they don’t have space, or there is a wait...that’s fine...it’s the delivery of those messages that’s where the problem comes in. Unfriendly, not welcoming at all and down right act annoyed at your presence.
When the first people you interact with leave a bad taste in your mouth, the best food and wine can’t bring it back every time
Barolo's menu is fantastic - changing seasonally, with good variety of modern cuisine, yet still offering some more traditional Italian fare. Our meals were so very good - quality, quantity and lovely presentation. Despite the very busy night we visited, our service was excellent and personal. I bring guests here as I know they will be impressed. I also like the vibe - younger, lively yet upscale. Also, very reasonable valet parking is available right out front, so don't let lack of street parking deter you.
The food was good, the ambience was fine. We were a group of 6 software developers wearing tshirts. The waiter made numerous awkward comments about our attire, which came across as snooty to me.
Went for my 21st Birthday and had a great time! Def watch for prices, but so very elegant and welcoming.
Perfect date night with my wife. Romantic, understated elegance, great food, excellent server (Carrie). Great experience. One of our favorite restaurants in Seattle. Thank you!
Details were great, the pasta wasn’t done well and the flavor was off.
The very best Italian Seattle has to offer. Great ambiance, terrific wine list, amazing service. Calamari and foie gras starters are incredible.
Don’t miss Barolo if you are dining in Seattle. Every visit is special. And be sure to book in advance. The food is created out of old family recipes and it is absolutely spectacular.
not a really good experience in terms of seating. We were a party of four and got seated @ a communal table. A 14 people party was also seated on that table. Soon, the party grew to be 19 and invaded us. We had to ask to be moved. No apologies nor excuses. Otherwise, the food is pricy but good. Wine is outrageously expensive
Very nice restaurant..was placed next to the large dining table that had a ladies nite..which made it a bit crowded and loud
Had a great time, the food is a little exspensive, but I had the boar and it was awesome! My wife had ravioli and she loved it.
Very nice place, high end.
Great for special occasions
Not every day eating.
Unless you have the money for that.
Loved the ravioli and bread pudding
Nice spot for good Italian food near downtown. Bar area was jammed and very noisy.
Menu was nice sampling of authentic Italian dishes. Service was very attentive and helpful. Nice selection of wines by the glass.
Only negative was table wasn't ready when promised.
Excellent restaurant. Area for improvement is the noise level, sounded like a club the way they had the music. Hard to focus on the food when the base is hitting your eardrums.
Wow!! Excellent spaghetti. Exactly the way I like it, Al dente with spicy rose sauce....
Spaghetti to die for......
Great service to top it off.....
Wonderful service, and the valet was very helpful with a car situation. Highly recommended.
I love this restaurant. It's a great experience every time. I recommend making reservations.
While our experience was great our food was a little disappointing. Even after requesting the wild boar be cooked medium rare, the meat was definitely well done. Additionally the tuna with our tuna caesar was barely seared and had a slight greyish coat instead. The service was outstanding regardless!
Our server was just amazing. Wish I got her name so I can complement her to everyone! She made sure we were taken care of and everything she recommended was amazing! Service is awesome.
The perfect pair. Theatre and dinner at Barolo. We had a spectacular lunch a few months ago and decided to try their dinner menu. What word is better than spectacular? It would be Barolo! Milan was our waitress and she met our needs to perfection. We highly recommend this restaurant.
Our experience was excellent! Loved the food and had excellent service.
We had a wonderful time, the Italian food was prepared to perfection, and we had a wonderful wine to go with it. Our server was superbe. Yes it's a bit expensive, but it's a very special place.
I’ve been here several times when we travel to Seattle. This time they gave our party of 6 a private dining area. A white curtain separated us from the other tables. Our reservation was for 7:30. By 8:15 the noise level had reduced considerably. We had eaten here previously earlier in the evening. I now understand to reserve a table later in the evening if you want to converse without yelling. I do not like the techno music, but the volume is low enough in the dining room. Good food, wine list, and service.
A wonderful night with friends, one who was retiring. The cocktails, food and service were outstanding! Alexander was fabulous! Also, they accommodated our group with individual checks which was really convenient.
