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

Food was great as was the service. However, when making an 8:00 AM reservation, it would be nice to know that the kitchen doesn't open/serve until 9:00 AM.
Temperature check and masks required upon entry. Was seated very quickly and the service was excellent. The halibut was fantastic and the drinks were on point. 10/10 would come again.
We enjoyed our anniversary brunch there with feta service and delicious food. We felt safe even with indoor Covid dining.
Excellent Sunday Brunch with a view!! Felt very safe - temperature checks as you enter lobby. Hand sanitizer at every table. Well distanced tables. Plan on a designated driver if you choose the bottomless mimosas!
This is my husband’s favorite restaurant, and an easy choice for our wedding evening dinner. Despite the safety precautions and slightly limited menu, we had an amazing meal. Highly recommend for both lunch and dinner.
We did the $55 bottomless mimosa's , for 2 ppl our bill was $145 because there is a service fee. SO OKAY.... Lets focus on the food. It is a 3 course situation but they halved the portion sizes. The flavor was ok. nothing exciting. I had the chowder, and benedict, hollandaise sauce was a little on the runny/ watery side. The chowder was chowder, not much in the way of flavor, it just was. The desserts were cute very creative since it was halloween. Overall the mimosa was the best part and i dont know maybe thats what ppl want to pay for , but it was not worth money. Won't be going back.
Overall- service was great! View by window not so. View of the public storage logo building. Food was awful. Mash potatoes were extremely salty. Chicken dish was overly dry.
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.
Tasty food, attentive service. Will return in the future.
The best brunch in Seattle! Make sure you get the Bloddy Mary ;)
One of my favorite restaurants in Seattle and the best service. Fun cocktails and always love the oysters and crudo. Thank you for a lovely anniversary dinner!
Service was pretty poor. Waiter was attentive at first, but then had to flag down staff to get something or a drink.
We had such a great brunch at Goldfinch Tavern! Everything was awesome — the food, drinks, and service, plus with all the measures the staff took, we felt super safe.
Really nice spot in the Four Seasons. Great burger!
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.
The food was great. The waitstaff was outstanding.
Beautiful birthday brunch.
This restaurant was definitely beautiful and we had a great view of the pier and Great Wheel! The food was amazing very pricey so definitely come prepared!! Gratuity is included in the price YIKES! Again be prepared.. but our server made our experience wonderful.
I had an excellent experience at Goldfinch. The service was outstanding, all the food was tasty and the ambiance is just what I was looking for being on a date with my boyfriend.
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!!
Great service ,best waiter & yummy food & drinks !!😀
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 ambience and food were impeccable, not to mentioned the service. I was especially impressed with the cleanliness! I will definitely be back.
Wonderful food, service, and ambiance; Four Seasons has adapted well to the COVID environment
What stands out most is the excellent service and attention paid by the service staff. I felt very well looked after.
Went here for a dinner date, and the food was amazing. It was sunny and we had a table seat and it was a very nice view !
The Salmon was perfect. I enjoyed my experience very much.
Excellent first destination out given easing of Covid restrictions. We felt safe and well taken care of.
Fantastic food and service! And they have safeguards to keep us all safe.
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.
Made birthday reservations after restaurant could open. Nicely spaced diners, felt safe and well cared for by staff.
Overall sets a high standard for dining and safety during Covid-19 epidemic.
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.
We have a lot of business meetings here. Both the staff and food are top notch. This would also be a great location for a date night or celebration as the views are phenomenal.
Kurtis the bartender was personable, polite and made excellent drinks!
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.
