Italian | Downtown, Seattle

I have been going there for years. I made a reservation but was seated at one of the worst tables in the restaurant. We asked to please move, and we went to the second worst table. We are in our 60's, and wasn't happy with the seating! Uncomfortable More

We celebrated our annual office Christmas brunch at Coastal Kitchen this year. The menu is nicely varied and everyone enjoyed their meal. A little surprised that it cost $300 for 8 of us with only one alcoholic beverage and no desserts between us. But very enjoyable. More

Japanese | Belltown / Pike Place Market, Seattle

Wa'z serves Kyoto style Kaiseki cuisine with a creative twist using Northwest fresh ingredients. It is always a treat to dine at the counter, with Hiro-San who is the head chef and owner of the restaurant. The menu changes monthly, with a theme which is seasonal and festive at the same time. Great thought is given to assemble each dish, from the presentation, to the quality of the food and taste (with choice selections of the freshest ingredients), the colors of the different compositions, and the garnish, all in perfect harmony, sometimes with a kick (a delicate touch of yuzu flavored spice). For me, it is always a feast not just for the tummy, but the eyes and the mind, sometimes whimsical, and sometimes stimulating imagination and a sense of nostalgia (of travels to Japan), not just my taste buds. Hiro-San never disappoints. The cuisine gets better each month. I look forward to going back each month because I am so curious what Hiro-San would create....it's addictive! More

We've been making kimchi and sauerkraut as Kraut Pleasers since June 2015. After searching for a better way to share our kimchi we explored ramen and udon noodle bowls. Serving them all winter at our Little Winter Market we then opened in the spring of 2017 as Setsunai Noodle Bar using our fermenting kitchen as the base. We’ve now moved the fermentation side of things over to our local shared access community kitchen, Taproot. We are in the heart of the village with plenty of parking and a local beach within site. We serve our bowls with both traditional Kimchi and Golden Napa for you spice wimps. We have dumplings with seasonal fillings and kid bowls with just noodles and broth. More

Discover Seattle

The iconic city tucked inside the Pacific northwest coast does see a lot of rain, but when the sun shines on Seattle, it dazzles. Don’t miss the chance to dine at one of the many waterfront restaurants serving oysters and Pacific-caught seafood. Take a stroll downtown and wander in and out of bookshops and bakeries. Arguably the birthplace of American coffee culture, there’s hardly a better place to enjoy leisurely lattes accompanied by hours of computing and the occasional pen and paper sketch.
