Our server , Jackie was wonderful, very friendly and excellent server. Food was delicious! Love this place 🍷🍹🍽
Everything was great until we received burnt and luke warm lasagna. Disappointing after waiting 30 minutes for it.
The staff was great and the 6 different meals we ordered were each incredibly good. Fantastic experience in an iconic Seattle restaurant. We’ll be back!
A little hidden away from the main part of Pike's Place but it is a gem worth finding! Food and Ambiance was great! Service was very nice. We really enjoyed ourselves.
It had been many years since I’d been to Il Bistro since I no longer live in Seattle but I found it to still be a delightfully cozy and delicious spot for a special meal. I had the steelhead trout special, simple preparation that let the fish flavor dominate. Served with a strongly flavored garlic & oil pasta that I loved. For dessert, Italian cheesecake that was creamy and rich, drizzled in lemon. My two wishes would be for better bread (warming it at a minimum would help) and to add decaf espresso so one could enjoy with dessert and still plan to sleep that night.
Lovely restaurant with attentive service, wonderful food and wine and very courteous in accommodating our schedule in order to make a concert. Will dine here again.
Great food and equally great service!
They were out of half their menu although due to busy previous two days but guests should have been notified about this before they were seated. Service and everything else was top though
Quiet, cozy, and warm - the perfect spot for a wet winter evening in Seattle. Our food was delicious, the scallops were outstanding.
Incredible food, excellent and friendly staff (special thanks to the sommelier), and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening.
There for Valentine's day. Prix fixe courses were all imaginative and perfectly prepared. Live band as well.
The food was extremely overpriced, very underwhelming, late to arrive, and disappointing overall
Several courses were served cold, most notably the soup, pasta, and steak. Drink order was served incorrectly. Steak was mostly gristle
I returned here as it was the place where my wife and I had our first date...our marriage has flourished. Unfortunately,I can't say the same for what I thought would be a pleasant V Day experience
Il Bistro was as fun and enjoyable was ever. Took four guests from out of town on Saturday, I had mentioned in the reservation that it was a special dinner, and they gave us a lovely table. The atmosphere of Il Bistro is wonderfully old school swank, perfect lighting, and the staff is very personable and very well trained. The cocktail program is strong, everyone found a house cocktail worth trying, and the food was good, the appetizers being the strongest as we shared sautéed calamari, very tasty meatballs, bruschetta, and a terrific carpaccio. The bar also has a lovely selection of amaro's, and again, the staff really knows how to make sure you have a great evening. It is a genuinely nice experience in the heart of Pike's Place Market, and just steps to the Zig Zag for a nightcap afterward.
They were a little behind on getting our entrees to us. But they made up for it with the food be glorious.
Up there with top meal ever! Best calamari app, delicious salad and entrees were superb! Waitstaff was kind, professional, knowledgeable and capped off the amazing meal. Have been here a few times in past 25 years but they have really stepped it up!
Food and service was great!
Happy Hour was well worth the value. Great atmosphere. Perfect location.
the food, atmosphere, and service was exemplary. this is our favorite happy hour place as well. we bring friends and family to il bistro at every opportunity. THE BEST!!
The atmosphere was charming. We had an excellent appetizer, which was followed by wonderful scallops and the other main dish was fine. Our complaint was that the food was not hot when it came out. Service was very good most of the time and the helpers were very attentive. The reason for a "good" rating was that there were a few times when our waitress was a little slower than we would have liked. Overall an enjoyable evening.
Food was exceptional. The only thing better than the food was their service. Perfect spot for a date night!
The menu was limited when it came to vegetarian options, but the server and chef worked with us to meet the diverse dietary needs of a party of seven.
Nice dining experience in Seattle. Great wine and service. Recommended for anyone visiting the water front.
Best dinner we had in Seattle!
The ambience was comfortably wonderful. The whole evening had a warmness about it.We were greeted upon entering with a welcoming smile. We were gracefully seated. The waitress was gracious and knowledgeable. Her overall service to us was excellent. We never felt hurried, nor did we ever feel neglected. She always smiled.
New Years Eve
Celebrating a visit with a close friend
We highly recommend Il Bistro. Excellent service and good. We eat there every chance we get.
Food was fine but the noise level was terrible and there seemed to be only one waitress for the entire restaurant and an overly energetic Asian busgirl!
Consistently great food and service! We usually come for their Happy Hour but took family for dinner and it didn’t disappoint!
Great dinner with romantic lighting and ambience! We’ll be back
The staff were friendly and responsive. Food was good, not great (bread served cold, plates of food delivered warm, not hot). Little poinsettias on tables were dead.
We appreciated that they were open on Christmas, and would give the restaurant another try on a normal night.
Food and service was great. Our server looked overworked but still was attentive to her tables. Overall, it was a good experience.
The food and atmosphere are quite good.
However the restaurant was very noisy making conersation at a table of four very difficult.
Due to the noise level I would not recommend the restaurant.
Great as always!
We thoroughly enjoyed it!
The service, food and drinks were all superb! Highly recommend!
Food was amazing. Can’t say enough about the service. Recommend this place to anyone.
My husband and I ordered a drink and our order was taken at the same time. Drinks arrived and seconds later so did the soup and a Caesar salad. It was very loud in the restaurant and I had lost my voice so we asked to move to a different table which our server said was no problem. Once we had moved, it was less noisy and a much preferred location. Overall, the food was bland and delivered in lightening speed. The salad despite being a Caesar which main ingredient besides romaine is generally garlic but this one did not have a hint of it. Mostly it was smothered in Parmesan. My husband’s soup was not much better and tasted like salty water. Immediately after we had finished half of our appetizers the main courses arrived. My husband had the risotto de jour and I had the linguine de Mare. Mine was similar to buttered sea water with mussels, clams, shrimp and squid. I thought I detected a faint taste of fennel (my husband said I was being generous) but again no garlic, lemon, onion, wine -nothing. My husband’s meal was better with shrimp and a cheesy, salty sauce. So here we are having a lovely time despite the unimpressive, tasteless food and we both only ate 20% of the portion and not once did the server ask how our meal was. I think it never even occurred to them to ask. The bill was $105 dollars and probably the worst meal I have ever had. Not sure why the restaurant was so full. A total mystery to me. Save your money and stay away.
