We were with family who had not been to Violet before so we all did the tasting menu. It was fun and delicious as always, really helped to convince them to try something new. SIL would never eat lamb (gamey) before but she was blown away by the lamb dish.
We love the unpretentious atmosphere and perfect service every time.

The food is a good 4 stars, and the service is fantastic. The place is popular and had more people on a Friday night that what was safe under WA Covid guidelines. Really not safe for people over 60.

Food was incredible. We did the tasting plate but were able to mention a few things we wanted (Fois Gras!) The owner came to speak with us for a bit and happy to see them still here after Covid. Lovely vibe and amazing food.

Unforgettable dining experience. Chef William and staff went out of their way to accommodate me as a vegetarian, seeking a multi-course Omakase meal. Much of the produce is locally sourced and has personal significance, which Chef will happily share the origins of with you. Wine pairings were on point. INCREDIBLE!!!

Went there for my husband’s birthday celebration. My kids had the Omakase menu as well and had lots of fun tasting the different dishes. Service is amazing, the place is super clean and they are taking all the necessary measures compliant with the state guidance. We will be back there!

It was a nice touch to have the owner come around and check in on us and also they gave us some bubbles since it seems they could see my birthday was coming up via Open Table profile.

We have been here only twice and really loved the food both times. The American omakase (tasting menu) was fun the first time. This time we did our own tasting menu by ordering multiple dishes a la carte. The service was wonderful (again). However, beware if you are in a high risk group for COVID-19! The servers do not mask. The tables are not arranged so that diners are 6 feet apart. It was empty the night we were there. (We were there when they opened basically, so it was early.) When another couple came for drinks, they were placed at the table next to us. Granted it was on the patio and probably the couple wanted to be on the patio as we did but just FYI.

Fancy dining on the hill! Good food, decent ambiance. Overall I recommend this place. My only gripe is the restaurant should let diner know when they ask for a basic Manhattan (house liquor) that they'll be charged $40 per drink. This left a bad taste for me.
