Pleasantly surprised by how delicious the food was! The steamed clams were the best we’ve ever had! Love the values of Farestart and we will definitely go again. Great conversation with our waiter who explained the organization to us thoroughly.

Had lunch to celebrate our friend’s birthday. The service was very slow and our waiter assumed we were done and provided our bill. At that point we decided to pay and leave.

This is a large and lovely restaurant with a variety of seating options. My review reflects the fact that all employees are in job training; that said, the food is very good. The service was a little slow, but enthusiastic. I would just remind potential customers that the higher than expected meal prices provide a contribution to a very worthwhile effort. Kudos, FareStart!

The salmon sandwich was terrific. Blackened salmon cooked just right with a tasty aoli.
The apple crisp was a great way to end the evening.

We tried Maslow's for the first time recently and loved it. We had the cauliflower and a beet salad to start, and then had salmon, mushroom pasta, and the Hainan chicken dish. All were delicious. We will definitely come back to this restaurant.

Large, well designed dining place. Good lighting, good variations in seating (up close or distant from TV screens) so you could find the ambiance you wanted. Food was a good offering (hanger steak w/ fries, fish and chips, pasta with mushrooms, asian vegetables with chicken) but not really special in seasonings. Meals came with no bread and no side salad.

We had a family get together with out of town guests and our meal was genuinely wonderful! They were able to accommodate meat eaters, vegetarians and vegans. We all agreed our meals were excellent. We have already been a couple of times and will be back. It's very easy to park nearby and never crowded in the evening after the work crowd has left.

The restaurant is very noisy. Our service was fair - had to keep asking for our waiter. Food was ok. Steak was overcooked, the portion was very small and was overcome by too many greens.

I was there because my goddaughter is going to culinary school, it could give one confidence that anyone can do it. The place was impressive as well as the food and service especially since it is run by homeless. Everyone was very professional. If something was a impressive standout, in my opinion, it was the dessert. The presentation and flavor was awesome, fresh and tasty. I am not a dessert person either. I am not a drinker but the others all seem to like the bar which is good because that is where the money is made in most restaurants. The bathrooms give a modern and warm acceptance of all who come.

Went to Maslow's for a burger and beer pairing event they put on. Nacho burger sounded great, tasted pretty good, and the beer was good. The real let down was the service. We had to hunt someone down to get a menu, waited 15-20 mins for the waitress to show up and take our order. The food and drinks came out quick, but we never saw our waitress again. Sometimes you can rationalize bad service when the restaurant is full, but half the tables were empty. 30 mins after we finished eating we had to go to the front reception to ask for a check. Normally I like the default 15-20% tip to ensure servers make a good wage, but we had no service and still got stuck paying 20%. Won't be going back.

We made reservations to take out of state friends for dinner. We believe in the concept that Fare Start advances, and wanted to try out the new restaurant. The food was excellent, our server Angelo was wonderful, friendly, considerate, helpful, and sincerely interested in making sure our experience was exceptional. One of our party has hearing difficulties, and our special request to be seated in a quiet area was readily accommodated. I had the smoked pork belly (awesome, crispy and delicious, other dishes ordered were fish'n'ships, steak frittes, and vegetable ratatouille. Every plate was sent back to the kitchen clean. Good wine list, great Manhattan, tasty desserts (key lime tart kit, blackberry cobbler a' la mode; neither over-sweet) and great service support for our primary server made this experience one that we will definitely want to repeat. So, a great dinner for four for with wine, cocktails and dessert under $200 was a delightful surprise in Seattle. The only other surprise was that this restaurant was not packed on a Saturday night. Given that, I will be back, and soon.
