About the restaurant
Il Terrazzo Carmine, owned and operated by Carmine Smeraldo, is one of Seattle's true dining anomalies - a highly successful restaurant with unfailingly high standards and a loyal, sophisticated clientele. The cuisine has been acclaimed as Seattle's best by the media and more importantly, by local diners.
Il Terrazzo Carmine is located in historic Pioneer Square - nestled in an urban-renewed alley with entrances through the vintage lobby on First Avenue or through the delightful courtyard in the back. Since 1984, Carmine Smeraldo's classic Italian restaurant has been where the locals have chosen to return over and over again. From the Carpaccio Di Bue and Spaghettini Dell 'Ortolano for lunch to the Suprema Di Pollo Farcita and Zuppa Di Pesce for dinner you will know you have gone to a place where excellence is a way of life. Arguably the best Italian restaurant in Seattle, Il Terrazzo serves classical Italian cuisine with an atmosphere you may want to call home and never leave

Our server, Mike and his assistant (I’m sorry I didn’t catch his name) were top notch. We came on a very busy night, but they kept their cool, composure and communicated well. Thank you, we’ll be back.

About the restaurant
Wild Ginger has been a staple in the Seattle food scene since 1989 - serving authentic Southeast Asian cuisine, craft cocktails, and more. This location has a hip, modern vibe and an industrial feel complete with a large U-shaped bar, custom lighting, authentic artwork and décor (such as a beautiful multi-colored Indian wedding shawl), Indonesian wood and copper details, floor-to-ceiling glass windows, an outdoor patio, and more. Both the bar and satay counter provide guests the opportunity to see all of the action unfold right in front of them. Enjoy dining outside this summer on our patio!

About the restaurant
** Wild Ginger - Downtown

The food at Wild Ginger spans the Pacific Rim from China to Indonesia. We pride ourselves on offering traditional dishes from these distinctive regions and insist on house-made ingredients. Chefs make spicy chili sambals, fresh coconut milk, delicate egg noodles, and our pungent oyster sauce all from scratch. To achieve the sublime flavors of the East, there is no substitute for the time-honored customs of these rich and ancient cultures.

About the restaurant
Approachable sophisticated Pacific Northwest cuisine, simply prepared using the finest regional ingredients and served in a dining room with maritime-inspired design and sweeping views of Elliott Bay.

Goldfinch Tavern is a collaboration between Ethan Stowell and Four Seasons Hotel Seattle. Named for the state bird of Washington, the American Goldfinch.

The upscale tavern pays homage to the city’s pioneer days, when taverns catered to lumberjacks and sailors alike, providing a place for travelers and locals to both socialize and conduct business, all while enjoying drinks and food.

Excellent food and great service. I am less enthusiastic about the automatic 20% service charge that goes to the restaurant. I guess it is a local thing...

The fried chicken sandwich was excellent - with a crispy crust, and moist on the inside; the topping was spicy but not too biting. I substituted the salad for fries - it was excellent as well, as was the espresso martini. The service was excellent as far as intention, including the caring wait staff and the front entrance person - at lunchtime, clearly, they were far too busy but tried as well as they could. I mention this because they made it clear that they cared, that I was not being ignored, and apologized for the wait time. This made a difference to me because as a solo elderly female diner it is easy for me to get overlooked, and in a busy place (with a large lunchtime crowd from the nearby convention center) that is not unusual. The environment was charming - a slightly retro mid-century look, fun and hip but not overdoing it. It was lively but not overly noisy despite large parties. A tip: for lunchtime, book a reservation online, as people coming in were told there were long waits (and there were clearly many people waiting) but online there seemed to be availability for shorter waits. Given the food, environment, and caring service, I will be sure to go back soon, and bring friends with me.:)
