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.

    It was a very uneven experience with some good and some bad. The halibut was excellent; the pork chop was fine but nothing an average cook couldn't have made at home. The accompaniments ranged from very good (although not fabulous) to nearly inedible. The worst side was the nettle, which was so chewy as to be nearly inedible. The morels with sauce were fine but nothing special; same with the asparagus. The banana dessert was very good but could have been better - there were three small slices, and the overall taste was good but not amazing. Worst of all was the potato sourdough bread. It is a round loaf with a very hard crust. That could've been okay but it was cut in half rather than in slices, so unless you want to tear it up with your hands or teeth it was hard to eat - we spent a lot of effort hacking at it. On the plus side it came with an excellent olive spread - one of the better aspects of the meal. Overall the experience was disappointing because the mediocrity of most of it (not to mention some hard-to-eat items) did not justify the astronomical price. In terms of ambience, it could've been quite nice I also downgraded that somewhat because a couple of issues that were not the restaurant's fault impacted our time there. The worst was that four women came in and sat nearby who were so overly perfumed that it took away from our food enjoyment. In addition, again, not the restaurant's fault but what should've been an outstanding view was impacted sunset at dinnertime - mandating pulling down the shades to prevent direct sunlight. As mentioned earlier, given the astronomical price it was a disappointing experience, with lots of good but lots of misses.

    The service was phenomenal, especially since we had two 2 year-olds with us. Lots of delightful touches for the kids - booster seats already in the booth, "Lego" stackable silverware, and the kids' breakfasts is honestly a great value. Toddler dining isn't always the most enjoyable, and I'm sure it's a headache for restaurants, but we felt so well taken care of and will definitely be back as a result.

    I recently stayed at the Four Seasons and enjoyed a couple of meals at Goldfinch Tavern while I was there. The food was delicious but unfortunately both times we ate there service was extremely slow. I would expect better service for a restaurant in the Four Seasons. Everything else was wonderful!

    Great restaurant with variety of choices for guests with special dietary needs. At the bar… red wines by the glass are too warm to enjoy (and quite expensive)

    At the end of the day, it's not bad for a hotel restaurant. But if you are expecting it to be exceptional because it is an Ethan Stowell, expect to be disappointed

    My husband and I enjoyed a lovely relaxed lunch on a gray and rainy day prior to visiting an exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum. I selected the lunch special: a duck confit salad that included some tasty fermented-style cabbage. It seemed Provençal so I paired it with a nice dry rose’ from Provence. My spouse ordered the salmon salad which he reported was perfectly prepared. Our server was friendly, attentive and elegant. We’ll be back.
