We were excited to try GoldFinch based on the community feedback, but we were very underwhelmed. We had brunch with bottomless mimosas. I had the burger and my friend had the pancakes

I appreciated John’s service. He was very kind to us and was very attentive to our needs/wants. He seems like a very respectable human.

They are really in desperate need of a good bartender. Most of their cocktails are barely average. Food is average. Ambience is average.

We loved the ambiance, Concierge style service, creative and tasty drinks and fantastic food. Also, we felt very safe, as temperature checks we’re done upon entry, the in dining tables were spaced at quite a distance between each other and everyone were masks.

We love Goldfinch. It’s an excellent place to dine but there is room for improvement.

GREAT food and wine. REALLY GREAT service. Ambiance is NOT SO GOOD. Someone really needs to work on the music and vibe. It makes me want to leave as soon as my food is done.

Goldfinch did a great job of making us feel safe (from Corona Virus) & comfortable during our dinner. Our waiter (John) was excellent & although we missed the "Chef’s Table” option from the menu, our ultimate choices were all very good! We will definitely return to Goldfinch at Four Seasons!!

Went out with our immediate family to celebrate our 14 year old's birthday during these uncertain times. Our temps were checked upon entry and we had to get two tables as we are a household of six but we were accommodated with social distance in place and enjoyed our evening out together. The food was great!! The halibut special was cooked perfectly and the flavor was delicately paired with a saffron risotto which was perfectly cooked. The birthday boy enjoyed the rigatoni with lamb ragu and the cedar plank salmon did not disappoint as usual. Just great to dine out while being safe.

I visited Goldfinch for dinner with family. While the place is better known for it's brunch, I would rate the dinner experience top notch. Due to covid-19 restrictions, the main dining hall was spaced out and perhaps did not have the "weekend festive buzz". But I appreciated the pandemic specific measures - hand sanitizers, non-touch temp checks, etc. We got a nice booth by the widows overlooking the Puget Sound. The drinks were fabulous - I ordered a Guava mule and the smokiness of the drink was exciting. The main course was wonderfully well presented. I ordered their wagyu beef based burger. Definitely nice. I can imagine hanging out with friends over drinks and having fun. Perhaps I would have preferred to have a more diverse, full menu. However, with the sides, appetizers, and the entrees, we were full by the time we finished. And last but not the least, the team at Goldfinch were super gracious and helped with all our requests.

The food was very good! The tip is automatically applied at 20% which isn't okay because the service was not good. Over 15 minutes just to get drinks and our order taken.
The view is beautiful and the food was great, but not worth what the cost was.

We received poor service. I made reservations for dinner and were not told by our wait person that dinner ended 8:45. So when were we’re ready to order dinner, we could not. We shared one small plate before that and it was very good. Also the same wait person was not very attentive to our needs overall and there were some delays in service. I live in Seattle and have frequented my share of excellent restaurants with great food and great service and that is what I expected especially from an upscale place in a five star hotel.

We enjoyed our brunch as much as we did the last time we visited before the lockdown. We really appreciated all the protocol with good spacing between tables and we now order our food using the mobile menu. The food was great and our favorite was the trio of desserts.

You would expect near excellence at a four seasons restaurant. Sadly way below expectations. Omelet was tough, most everything was cold and people next complained about their eggs Benedict. An overall bad experience.

I had an incredible evening and can't thank the staff and the restaurant enough! I want someway to give 4.8 stars. While the food was amazing the main dish I ordered was not what I got. While it was still amazing I didn't want to make a mention of it there because we were having a great time and your team was so very polite and nice. Amazing all around otherwise.
