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.
I want to like Barolo, but the food wasn't great---I had the gnocchi and it was not soft and pillowy, and my husband had a dish that was way too salty. The service was great, the ambiance so so. There's much better Italian in Seattle, for sure.
Went here for my boyfriend's birthday. We really felt that the server and staff went all out to make it a special night. We were not rushed and the food was great. Definitely get the Antipasto!
We went to celebrate a friend's birthday. The menus arrived with 'Happy birthday' written across the top. The server was knowledgeable and attentive, but not over the top. The food was outstanding. And they brought a beautiful dessert, complete with fire cracker as candle! We loved it!
Great food and service. The Lobster Risotto is amazing. Excellent wine choice. We celebrated our 21st anniversary. We had a specialized menu and dessert with a candle.
We were seated immediately for our reservation 20 minutes early. A great surprise wishing us a happy anniversary. Excellent service started immediately. Thank you!
We had a lovely and delicious dining experience. Thank you!
Our server was warmly professional!
Great food, great atmosphere
Food and service were superlative. The noise level was awful.
Discovered this place a month ago. Loved it the first time and the second time was just as good. Their bread and tapenade is incredible and the pasta dishes are to die for! Best duck and wild boar around. They have valet parking which is a plus. Will definitely be back!!!!!
Service was poor food excellent
Made a res for my friends bday dinner. We were sat at a Beautiful table and they had her name on the menu! She was so happy and they totally made us feel special. Thank you Barolo!!!!! Gorgeous.
Unfortunately the music is still a disruptive loops ambient beat. Really get with the times. The awful music does not match the beautiful place and exceptional food. I visit this place less and embarrassed to bring guests just because of this one thing. Just play Billy Holiday or anything rather than techno... Please!
Great experience. Outstanding service.
Great food and service as always! Tough this time we were seated half and hour later than our reservation.
It is with regret that I must not recommend Barolo to my friends, nor will we return. We have dined with you often, and what bothered us was the crowd of people in the restaurant on Saturday night. In the booth next to us was a loud gentleman broadcasting around the room to other guests trying to impress everyone, with his three lady guests we suspected as not being of high character. On the other side was another rowdy table of less than desirable dining patrons we would want to be sharing the evening with.
Barolo has become a late night hangout for a young and lower caliber group that frankly ruined our evening. Add the fact is was cold inside, we won't be coming back, which is a shame given the food was outstanding. Ambiance, décor and ability to converse are required.
I was meeting a friend in downtown Seattle for dinner before we took the monorail to the opera. We wanted something nice and relaxed for an early booking (5 pm). Our waiter did an excellent job of letting us enjoy our meal but stopping in often enough so we didn't feel rushed for time. A bit pricey for what we ordered but I know I can count on good food and service in a nicely-decorated setting. It wasn't my first visit and won't be my last!
Overall great. Service at first was a bit slow. Food and presentation lovely. Loved the fact we could have another order of house made focaccia that was to die for at no extra charge.
Although service was excellent , food was good but not spectacular as we had anticipated . Did not enjoy the style of music ,as it made you feel like you were in a 30s single bar rather than a 5 star dining establishment .
Flavors were enjoyable but definitely need to improve the texture of the pasta noodles and ravioli.
Overall 3.5 star
One of Seattle’s best and most consistent dining experiences. Delicious food, outstanding wine list and exceptional service.
