Northwest
Approachable sophisticated Pacific Northwest cuisine, simply prepared using the finest regional ingredients and served in a dining room with maritime-inspired design and sweeping views of Elliott Bay.

Goldfinch Tavern is a collaboration between Ethan Stowell and Four Seasons Hotel Seattle. Named for the state bird of Washington, the American Goldfinch.

The upscale tavern pays homage to the city’s pioneer days, when taverns catered to lumberjacks and sailors alike, providing a place for travelers and locals to both socialize and conduct business, all while enjoying drinks and food.

    Disappointing entree ... at this price point, I expect excellent food; mine was overcooked and tepid.

    Food was very good. Server was great. One thing was the restaurant was connected and open to the lobby. So people checking in and coming and going kids running around the lobby took away from what could have been more romantic setting. I sat towards the corner so it was not as bad for me but i can just imagine how more annoying that would be if I sat in the front part of the restaurant. A small issue but not one that would keep me from coming back would be I order bread service to come out first. It didn’t get to the table until after the appetizers and almost immediately after the main course came out which was not ideal. The non flavored bread (also very hard to chew and eat) and non flavored butter was not very good either. A softer bread with some flavor or a butter that don’t taste like Vaseline would be nice.

    The restaurant is in a convenient location in the Four Seasons at First and Union but the view is not spectacular. The service was excellent. However, the entrees were on the expensive side, halibut at $62 and scallops at $53 and cocktails at $17. I had halibut at Carmine's which was much better for way less a price.

    Food was great, but wasn't sure if it's a common practice to charge 20% tip upfront. We normally tip at least 20% or more but we haven't encountered a restaurant that charges 20% tip upfront for 3 people.

    The hamburgers were delicious but the crab cakes a bit mushy and underwhelming. Like many restaurants these days they seemed understaffed, however the servers and waitstaff were extremely gracious and clearly trying their best to provide top-notch service.

    Pre-game brunch, and it was perfect. Exactly what we were looking for in a menu, with delicious food and drink, a lovely city/water view, and gracious service. We will be back to take advantage of the full brunch with all you can drink mimosas another time!

    I didn't expect much (fancy hotels can be hit or miss) but the experience ended up being great. Maybe it was because the restaurant was mostly empty when we went to early breakfast (before 9am on a Monday). Every member of the staff was professional, welcoming, and very accommodating of the young ones in our group. Food was fantastic, location and ambience were also terrific. Renewed my faith in fancy hotels. The only negative is that there was no outdoor space.

    Hard to beat the atmosphere at Goldfinch: service and setting are wonderful as always. Food is down a notch: my longtime favorite octopus dish is no more, and the gnocchi was underdone while the peas were overly mushy. Cocktails are $20+ each, so that was some sticker shock. But the scallop main was perfect, as was the burger (I can forgive them for putting dill in the fries!). It's still my favorite physical dining space in downtown Seattle and the atmosphere will keep me coming back.

    We went for my partners bday. We both ordered the omelette, it was terrible, over cooked, brown and tasted like a sponge. Very disappointed since it is the four seasons and it was $20!! We chose the eggs Benedict for a replacement. Thankfully that was delicious. The server was very apologetic and was very gracious

    Our servers are very nice and cordial. Everyone, from the front staff to the servers was great. The food, not so much. The burger I got was too juicy, the bun ended up soggy and it became inedible. I saw other servers and wait staff walking by with half eaten burgers. Next time I will be ordering something else.

The food was fantastic, the service attentive and considerate. They even gave us Lego style utensils to keep our toddler occupied. Will gladly come here again.
