I took my wife to the House of Seven Brothers for her birthday. We had the fry bread (wonderful) and the fried brussels sprouts (I am not a brussels sprout fan but I will order this one again next time), and I had filet oscar, she had top sirloin. For dessert we had the fantastic carrot cake (it was healthy, right? It had carrots in it!) and a candle for Joy to blow out. The service was excellent, as usual. We love this place.

About the restaurant
The PNW landscape easily lends itself to Italian cuisine. Similar to that of Mediterranean towns, Edmonds is just steps away from Ocean’s Bounty, minutes from the closest vineyards and just hours from some of the best agricultural resources in the nation. Join us as we welcome you into our home for a delightful meal that Nonna would be proud of!

Always great place to visit. This has become our "go to" place for dinner. If you haven't, try the spicy wontons.

About the restaurant
Girardi’s Osteria is a family owned and operated Italian restaurant. It opened in 1999 and has been an Edmonds landmark ever since. Girardi's is cozy yet elegant, with a friendly and knowledgeable staff. The food is wonderful and represents many different flavors of Italy as well as some fusion creations.
Large 3-sided fireplace in the center of the dining room warms the cold days, while the beautiful patio with a 3-tiered fountain, overhead electric heating, a beautiful mature flowering cherry tree in the middle and Merlot Grapes growing on the trellises provide a garden-like outdoor dining experience seasonally.
The dining room is bright and airy with many windows facing the east and west, and bar and lounge area provide a comfortable space for drinks, appetizers and conversations.
Girardi's signature dish, Fred's Salmon, a gently smoked and perfectly prepared Salmon served with wild mushroom risotto and roasted asparagus is served Thursdays through Sundays and not to be missed.

Great food from a large and varied menu. Friendly attentive service. Only hiccup was that they had given our reserved table to someone else and couldn’t seat us right away. But the people we were meeting were late, so it wasn’t awful. This was probably the fourth time we’ve been there, and the quality of food and service has been consistently high. Definitely recommend.

Haven’t been back to this place in over 10 years and it’s still wonderful! Xavier was perfect for our girls night! So warm, kind and efficient. Food was very tasty! We ordered the pastry feta, sliders, Greek salad, artichoke dip, fish tacos, and French fries. Every bite was devoured! Thank you Paula and Niko for always being so wonderful!
