Gorgeous location! Their patio is perfect for dining safely outdoors with a beautiful view. The fried artichokes were delicious.

We came for Restaurant Week but noticed that they'd left all the more interesting offerings on their main menu. We were seated by a gentleman who almost made it seem like the process was burdening him. A young woman came after a few minutes to fill our glasses, spilling water across the table but nothing seeming to notice. Our server was next, no warmth whatsoever, not then and not for the entire evening. It was like going to a restaurant where everyone hated their job.

The food was average. I ordered a fried artichoke appetizer that was overly battered and poorly seasoned. My girlfriend had pork belly--better but nothing spectacular. She was assured their gluten free pastas were wonderful, but the pasta quality was poor. The sauce was quite good. I ordered rack of lamb and asked for it medium rare; it came with two tiny pieces in the requested range, one nearly raw, and the fourth overcooked.

The only thing "worth it" at Como was the view. It's undeniably lovely. And I imagine that's the only thing that keeps a suffering restaurant such as this one--with an unimpressive menu and staff who seem depressed, disinterested, and disengaged--from drowning.

While nice that we could sit indoors, the service was slow, orders forgotten, and unimaginative foods served. The view is good, though! Come for a cocktail and forget the food.

We reserved a table for my Birthday and no one acknowledged that it was my Birthday once. Not from the greeter at the door, to our waitress, to the Manager. At the end of the meal my husband has to finally ask if we could get a Birthday candle. My husband also ordered lamb rack medium rare. It ended up being well done and served with nothing but a sauce that looked like wallpaper glue. Also five tiny lamb chops for $32. They had to remake his dish while I waited and mine got cold. All in all a very disappointing experience.

Very nice experience overall, the food was AMAZING! Because I had gotten there right at open I felt that maybe the staff hadn’t quite ironed out all the details so it felt a little disorganized and two servers were discussing who was taking which table right in front of us.

The risotto was very salty but everything was presented well. The table service was excellent but the owner/manager was a bit a pushy about us not being at the table more than 2 hours. Definitely not the Italian style of the leisurely meal and enjoy your time with a time limit hanging over you.

We enjoyed our first visit to COMO very much! Wonderful view of Lake Washington on a beautiful spring evening. I had the carbonara and beet salad, while, my husband had the gem salad and pappardelle with boar. Everything was delicious! Our server Brooke was amazing! We will be back!

Seating staff were slightly annoying in teminding us about time limits at the table several times and insistently asking when our friends who were parking were going to arrive. Otherwise, great experience overall, including by the wait staff....

The view is amazing! And the design and ambiance is really nice. My glass of Rose was good, but a cool $15 a pop so I stayed with one. The food was mediocre, and this is my second time there. I eat vegetarian when dining out and their options are very limited to say the least. It seems they could come up with something more enticing than risotto for the non-meat-eaters that dine there. The artichokes for an appetizer were breaded and fried, the beet salad was pretty good, the mozzarella pizza was bland and not very flavorful. It seems people like it though, as the restaurant was busy.

Charming and genuine owner checking on us was a nice touch. 2 out of three dishes (pizza and wild boar pasta) were outstanding. Crab risotto (noted by the lovely kitchen staff who brought it out to us as her favorite, so we were sure it would be good!) was virtually crab-free. Two small identifiable pieces of crab in a large bowl of risotto. VERY disappointing. Worst part of the evening was the snarky waiter who started out by correcting one of our guest's pronunciation of a menu item. A completely unnecessary action intended to embarrass. He couldn't have been less interested in our table as he sped off to fawn over a table he apparently found much more intriguing. He was a dramatic contrast to the nice folks who seated us, checked on us and brought us our food, but he really was a poor mark on the evening. We will think twice about returning.

Our daughter was home from college for a few days so we took her to COMO for an early dinner on Sunday. We had not been there before and are so happy now to know about it! It was a beautiful day and the view from the deck was gorgeous. Our drinks and food were delicious - we had the fried artichokes and clams as appetizers and the the Papardelle with Wild Boar, the Crab Risotto, the Gnocci and one of the pizzas as entrees. The desserts weren't quite as incredible as the rest of the food (we tried the pear tart and the cannolis), but I suspect the tiramisu would not disappoint. We will definitely try it next time as we will absolutely go back. Thank you COMO for a special evening with our daughter.

We had a great experience at COMO. We had a reservation for outdoor setting but the weather took a turn and it was too cold. They found us an indoor table right away that was still socially distant. The server was fantastic with a great energy and offered wine and food suggestions. I will be back! Love it all.

I made a reservation for the patio for two to celebrate a birthday. We ordered a ton of food. The waitress got one of the ordered mixed up which was okay but the food was average. Nothing special for the price. The let down was the manager. He was arrogant and made an inappropriate comment to my sister. We won’t be going back.
