This is a night club that tries to be a restaurant by day. The food was ok. The device seemed fine. Just a limited menu in a strange atmosphere especially the bathroom.

Great prices for the large food portions. We are from out of town and went on a Saturday night. Stayed for the club after dinner and the music and ambience was amazing. Dj played all the hits. Our server during dinner was awesome. All the servers and bartenders were friendly and attentive. We all agreed we would definitely go back again.

Went for birthday and Latin dancing. Initially the place was empty and service just so so. After dinner the service and ambiance improved. Latin dance music in two rooms. Great dancing.

Sadly, I was disappointed in the experience. We arrived early & were seated immediately- the restaurant was empty. Our server was delightful, a real asset to the restaurant. However, the bar tender - who acted as if he owned the place - ruined the dinner for us. He was loud & bossy, arguing with the only 3 customers at the bar. When I asked if we could hear some Bosnian music (since we were in a Bosnian restaurant) he said no, lied that the owner wanted the current music. The owner wasn’t even there but we were subjected to strange elevator music anyway. We quickly finished our food & left.

Enjoyed a wonderful meal here. It was a beautiful evening so we sat outside. Service was excellent! We decided to sample a number of shared items - flaming cheese and gyros sliders were really, really good! Fries that accompanied them were also great. Wish we lived closer - we'd be regulars!

Space is dated but outdoor seating looked nice. Our server was attentive but rather rushed even though place was practically empty. Wine list was non-existent so we ordered martinis which were decent. Happy hour food was better than I expected with good portions and flavors. However, with so many options in Belltown, I would not go back.

Service friendly but very slow, especially given there were few customers. Lamb kebab had no flavor, and looked microwaved instead of grilled. Red house wine terrible. Chopped salad no flavor either: so so tomatoes, very little feta, and no hot pepper. All of this very disappointing for someone who has visited the real Sarajevo and knows how great Bosnian cuisine can be, even in the cheapest most basic little restaurants. Interior most uncharming.

This was a delayed Valentine's meal for my wife and I. She has connections in Bosnia, so it seemed like a happy convergence of Seattle with her interests. The woman who waited on our table was from Montenegro, and very good at her job - we were well looked-after throughout our meal. She was knowledgeable about the menu and offered good advice. My wife had a great mezze platter (I tested it thoroughly) and a succulent chicken kebab. I enjoyed a delicious calamari started, although my salmon was rather dry, although tasty. I'd probably say it's my fault for foolishly straying from Balkan choices! Anyway, there was no sign of the internet-promise of live music or dancing while we were there (early-ish on Sunday evening) so maybe we should have delayed our meal until a more party hour. But in compensation the restaurant seemed quiet (not empty), comfortable and satisfyingly romantic.

Sarajevo is a good restaurant - not the best in Seattle but suitable for a meal. The food was good, not great, but still enjoyable. I can see this restaurant as being more attractive if more people were there.

First our waitress was really nice this was surprising as they seem understaffed and she was the only one taking care of 5 tables. The appetizers and entree were good though the entree was not a lot of food for the price (medium plate of pasta for $14). Friend got the salad, lettuce was essentially burnt. If you want cheap drinks and good service then this is for you! If your vegan or vegetarian, don't really recommend.
