The spiedini with a glass of Ferrari Rose' Brut kicked off the dinner well. My niece and I love beets, so the beet salad with red and golden beets, goat cheese, etc. was the perfect blend of earthy, creamy and savory flavors.

Then the match to remember--Halibut with cannelini beans and the Chianti Classico from Molino de Grace was splendido!

While our server was on it, there was a busser who tended to our table with anticipation and an effortless, invisibility I rarely see and feel as a diner. Promote him, soon!
Mille Grazie to Monica and the team!

We had a very enjoyable meal at Mingo West. The ambience and service were excellent. The food served to my dining companions was excellent, and the prawn and crouton appetizer that my husband and I shared was extremely tasty. I contacted the restaurant in advance, due to dietary restrictions beyond my control. After corresponding with the staff, we agreed that I would probably do well to order the steak, since it was one of the dishes that didn’t appear heavily dependent on dairy. I was told that the staff could prepare a different sauce for the steak, and I asked for that when I ordered. The steak was excellent, but it really didn’t have any sort of sauce. The best restaurants that I go to will come up with a creative substitution. The rest just leave off the flavor. The steak fell into the later category, but just barely.

We met friends at Mingo West to enjoy each other’s company during a leisurely meal, and we did just that. Our server was excellent, and we didn’t feel rushed. My friends and husband went for the food, as well as the company. For me, the food and drink were mixed, but I’m still glad I went.

Seated promptly after checking in for our reservation. Set up delivered with water, then came server asking if we wanted more to drink than water. Took care of that, and after receiving drinks ordered our meal. Soup of the day was very good, but didn't want to eat all the Garbanzo beans, saving room for the Ravioli, which was very good! This was on the menu, not the special. Server kept watch over us without hovering, and when the water level in glasses was low a bottle was brought and our glasses filled. Enjoyed coffee after dinner.
The comfort level was good, but sitting in the bar area tables, there are the Plexiglas partitions between tables, so they tend to get in the way of moving around. Noise level in that area is high as well, which can take away from ambiance to some degree. Enjoyable dinner and we will return at some point.

Mingos never disappoints. The lunch menu is so good it’s hard to choose! Pasta, risotto, pizza, burger or sandwich? The ravioli and the sautéed shrimp risotto were spectacular. We’ll be back!

We had a wonderful lunch day. It was our first since Covid. We love Mingo to have our lunch days. The food was amazing, except my Caprese salad. The tomato was soft and mushy, but my Butternut squash soup was soooo yummy. Yes, we will be back, as this is one of our favorite restaurants. Thank you for a lovely lunch.

Our table was ready and we had an excellent server. The menu was diverse enough to satisfy all. The halibut was slightly over cooked. My beef / chianti pasta was excellent. It was noisy. All in all a good evening.

Under-seasoned, slightly burnt flavor to entree components, broken & oily Caesar dressing, hurried & robotic service won’t bring us back any time soon. Anniversary dinner indicated in reservation system but not acknowledged by establishment. Disappointing for our $$!

Delicious food and drink at Mingo. Their calamari appetizer was great -- perfectly crispy with a slightly sweet dipping sauce. They have an ever-changing kind of lasagna -- last night was one with braised pork and a tomato-cream sauce. Very good, and very rich; most of it went home and will be my lunch. Hubby got polenta-crusted cod -- also very good, crisp and flavorful on the outside. He mentioned that the sauce had broken though. But it still tasted good even if the texture was a bit off. The offspring got pasta dishes -- fusili and ravioli -- I found them a bit bland but they liked them. The fabulous lychee cocktail is worth mentioning, huge burst of lychee flavor with a touch of bitterness from the grapefruit and bitters to balance it.

The only negative is that when I made the reservation, I was asked if there was a special occasion, and I said yes -- it was my b-day -- and there was no mention at all. They really shouldn't ask if they're not going to at least wish their patron a Happy B-day.

But the positives outweigh that. I will be back.

My husband and I had the braised risotto special. It was good but the braised pork was basically absent leaving really only a creamy tomato risotto. Wish there had been more neat since it was a main course.

We had a table for 5; three generations. Staff was super helpful and friendly and stopped by often (but not too often!) to ask if we needed anything or to remove the plates that were being cleared at a fast pace. We had the calimari (perfectly cooked) and shrimp pedieni skewers (love the fennel and crispy bread), followed by excellently dressed salads, followed by various pastas and the Pollo chicken dish. I simply love the sugo! (braised beef in rich dark tomato sauce with penne). The waiter was more than happy to pack up and label our leftovers for us. Note: like many restaurants in Seattle, they require proof of vaccination - which is great for those of us who are vaccinated and concerned about being around those who choose not to get vaccinated. We will be back (we go there about 3x per year) We prefer it over DeCarli as its not so loud. Another nice touch is that they have amazing garage doors that open to a great patio in the round with a water feature.
