Tribeca brings a chic, sophisticated, upscale casual vibe to the heart of Downtown Seattle. The restaurant features a combination of industrial and classic modernism. Exposed brick walls, long banquettes and candlelit tables give the place a timelessly style, sexy fun ambiance. Our communal table is very popular with large parties or small parties looking to meet new friends and celebrate life while enjoying our freshly prepared food. There is an open kitchen, where guest can sit back and watch the show. Our house made fresh pasta Is on display or stop by and watch us make it daily

My group of 6 was able to make a Saturday night reservation the day before, and the restaurant was still full when we arrived. We had very prompt service, the staff was friendly and attentive, we didn’t wait too long for our food, it all arrived fresh and hot. My group loved the homemade pasta and pizza. I highly recommend the saffron fettuccini with short rib ragu. Our group was at a high top closest to the bar so as the night got later it got a bit noisier. If you want to interact with the whole table I would recommend a table away from the main entrance bar. All in all I highly recommend.

Fun place to try out. Yummy Italian food. Fun cocktails. It is tiny, so definitely make a reservation. Large portion sizes. Not a ton of items on the menu, but lots of options.

Food was great. Server wasn’t very nice and not at all helpful but they stick you with 20% tip no matter how large the party.

We've found our new pre-theatre spot. Kind if a cozy place, with a chic vibe. Our entrees were served hot and were delicious. We also tried a signature cocktail and they were delicious too. Our server was exceedingly accommodating but never intrusive. Overall great experience!

A really great restaurant. The chicken piccata was very good but we loved the caprese salad more as our starter. The desserts are super good.

Restaurant was closed for the day when we arrived even thought we had an Open Table reservation. Very disappointed in Open Table for accepting a reservation for a closed restaurant and in Tribeca for not informing Open Table of its closure for Presidents Day. However we did receive 1,000 Open Table points for dinner even though the restaurant was closed. Thanks to Tribeca for this compensation for the inconvenience.

Great pre-theater location. Solidly unique menu w/ a variety of takes on genuine Italian dishes. Attentive, yet not smothering, service. Can get a little cramped between the tables.

We had a reservation and were pretty much sat as soon as we got there. The staff were very friendly and we had excellent service. Each item was brought out with great timing and plates taken away as we finished each course. The food was excellent! We got the red velvet cake for desert, it was a unique twist and by far the best I’ve ever had.

Fantastic classic Italian fare and a good selection of spirits. The arancini are a must, and I've never ordered a pasta that wasn't wonderful.

Unfortunately, the prices are creeping up a bit and the deserts are not nearly as memorable as the entrees.

The food was under salted. Very expensive for the price. I’ve had better pizza at Papa Johns at less price than Tribeca charged for a cheese pizza.

Started off by being put into a corner in the bar on a high top table that was uneven and the chairs wobbled. Ordered two drinks. Bellini was mediocre and the black Manhattan came out half full looking like someone had drank half my drink. Not what I expect for a $14 cocktail. The arancini was decent. The caprese was just a pile of cherry tomatoes with buratta cheese on top okay but not seasoned. Carbonara came out in a soup bowl size container. My wife started eating eat along with a large piece of hair. They did take that off the bill along with the Caesar salad my wife ordered to sub her dinner. I ordered the filet which wasn’t really a filet but a ball tip steak. Misleading people on your menu is wrong speaking from a customers point of view. Service was friendly and responsive. Overall atmosphere was energetic but very cramped. I had high hopes for this place. Hopefully changes can be made and I’ll give it another shot in the future.

Bland.

Bland wine: Cab tasted like water and was served in Dollar Store/Walmart type stemware. Couldn't bring myself to order a second glass-something I normally do. Scant selection of hot tea-two or three varietals.

Bland server: Server put forth minimal effort, initial greeting was more of an information session about him: He was "waiting for the caffeine to kick in", and "This is one of those Seattle restaurants that automatically adds gratuity". Later, same server was unable to answer the table's question regarding one of the offerings on the charcuterie board. He brought us to-go boxes, but we had to do the boxing...pet peeve of mine. And for the lackluster service, we, the ensnared patrons, not only had to produce a tip, but an obvious line on the bill indicated that we could tip an additional amount.

Bland food: Before making the reservation, and having read the reviews, I was on the fence about dining at Tribeca, but for a myriad of external factors, I ended up selecting Tribeca...after all, its pasta...how bad could it be. A frozen microwave pasta meal offers more heat (both temperature and taste), more flavor complexity and overall more satisfaction.

Hopefully Tribeca will accept this constructive review, improve and prosper.

P.S. This is not the first time I've felt compelled to write a review +/_, but it is the first time I actually have written a review.

Was looking for a nice Italian dinner for family during the holidays. Found this on yelp and needed reservation for 8 and it was available. Service was good , food was very good. My only negative was my son Said the risotto was bad. I wish he had let them know but besides that I was extremely happy. Would go again.

This is nothing more than a loud bar with marginal food, and servers who don't seem to understand that no one wants their hands on the drinking portion of your glass. This place might be convenient for the surrounding hotel patrons, but do not go out of your way to eat here.

We decided to celebrate our 1 year anniversary with Tribeca. This meal was so fun for us! We started at the bar where we were served delightful cocktails. We were given the table of our choice and Rachel waited on us. This was the highlight of our experience. The meal was absolutely delicious, but the service was even better. We will return! Meal: Garlic twists, Pasta Carbonara, Chicken Piccata, and red velvet for dessert. All OUTSTANDING!

Everything about our experience at Tribeca was outstanding. Our server was polite, fun, very attentive, and knowledgeable. Food was spectacular and the chef was happy to make a special request dish not on the menu for my boss from out of town. Great job. Thank you and I'm looking forward to taking friends there next time we go to a show at the Paramount.

We started with the charcuterie plate, the brussels sprouts, and the meatballs, they were all delicious. I had the pasta carbonara it was very tasty. The pasta is made fresh. Another member of our party also had egg plant Parmesan and said it was absolutely wonderful.

Pretty typical for a business area restaurant - commercialized versions or Italian dishes. If you want real Italian food, go to Italy.

We have eaten here several times and have enjoyed it most times. This experience was less than sub par. The server was great and the cocktails were good. The food was less than. I had the beef and honestly it was the worst piece of meat I have eaten. It was a salty tough and poor quality meal. I was so disappointed in my meal I do not think we will return

Disappointing dining experience that left me feeling fleeced. We had reservations but were seated at a bar. We waited about 10 minutes before being greeted or served water. Meanwhile, servers were all over the bar area but no one would even make eye contact. When we did get a server, the service was perfunctory—they took our order and brought the food to us. I had to ask for drink refills and the check. Lastly, the prices were higher than the quality of food deserved (ie, the pizza described as having asparagus actually contained about six 1/4” pieces), so when the mandatory 20% “service charge” was added in, we felt very overcharged and underserved.
