I went with my husband for dinner and we had cevape and shopska salad. I am from Serbia and my husband from England and we agreed that this cevapi we had here can easily compete with ones we had in Serbia, amazing taste and meat was so fresh. Ajvar and kajmak that came with it was so good. Kajmak not like in Serbia, but still good :) Shopska salad not the best but good(tomatoes in usa and serbia can’t compare). Palacinci for desert good as well. Waitress was very nice. We will definitely go back for some more cevapi and my husband to try their sarma :) Enjoyed it a lot!
Decent food for a place that's really focused on its nightclub revenue, not so much the restaurant it seems. Don't get the Brussels sprouts though. Severely undercooked and under seasoned.
Great options for some Balkan/Mediterranean chains. Great place to stop in for a meal!
The restaurant is large and the service was attentive. However, the food was much to be desired. We had chicken, beef and lamb shishkababs. They were all mediocre. The rice that accompanied the food tasted old. Meat was rough.
We arrived early and received excellent attention. I did worry that the establishment was not properly staffed for the evening. The restaurant filled, and there was only ONE person on the floor to:
hostess, bartend, waitress, etc. Can not imagine what was happening in the kitchen, too. Aside from my feeling bad for the staff at Sarajevo that day - we had an outstanding experience. The food was EXCELLENT !! We purposefully chose the traditional dishes offered, no calamari or American. And it was ALL delicious ! Generous servings, very reasonably priced ! We will be back ! It was SO, SO GOOD !
Ordered basic dishes: got the Hummus plate, and Gyro sliders, both were really good, decent portions, great pricing during happy hour. $20 and you have two dishes and a beer, not bad! Like the table next to the window, nice view
Everything thing was very tasty. My wife and I had two small plates (Cauliflower and Brussels Sprouts) and a Falafel sandwich. I desperately wanted the lamb burger too, but I glad that I didn't because we still took a significant amount of food home.
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.
Amazing place, friendly staff, delicious food. U can find everything what you want. U should def visit there
Always delicious food
Great food - attentive service - large portions - great value. Two thumbs way up. Better than anyone anticipated!
Great food yummy desserts you should try crepes and baklava.
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.
Great food. Especially the shrimp. Really good service too. Underrated gem. Beats tavolata which is right across the street
amazing food and great service!! the goulash was delicious and the bread to die for. the server was super friendly and knowledgeable.
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!
Food was delicious and service was great!
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.
Had an amazing time! Great food, drinks, and service.
Interesting menu combining traditional dishes of the Balkan region and contemporary US additions. Well prepared, nice use of spices and herb, fabulous bread, attentive service.
Great spot for people watching. The food is good and the server was so friendly! Try the brie with fig. Yummy!
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.
Food was exquisite and the service was impeccable.
only 1 server/bartender for whole restaurant. he seemed annoyed
This was an excellent double date night location. We arrived around 8pm, We had a meat platter! It was huge!!! Then the restaurant turned into a night club and we danced! The staff was friendly and accommodating. I will be back.
We enjoyed the happy hour with $5 well drinks and beer. They offered a nice selection of small plates, also at a discount. It was a great place for a pre-symphony dinner at a very reasonable price!
It was very fun and tasty. Latin music in the background, and good food served till late. If you go try the Cajun prawns.
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.
Love this place, it feels like home away from home ;-) Superb service and great food, thank you Maja, Dino & the crew.
Good food and servicr
I enjoy this place so much. I go at least 4 times a month. Drinks are strong. Food is fantastic
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.
Food was delicious!
Everything was excellent. The tvs took away from the atmosphere but overall things were great.
Authentic and Delicious. Next time I'm in Seattle I will dine here again.
Best calamari we have ever tasted. Flambing cheese was excellent. Lamb kebabs were disappointing.
Fourth visit for us and always enjoy it. Terrific food and service. We hear that it really gets jumping after 11pm but we always go for dinner.
