Italian | Ballard / Fremont, Seattle

We had a wonderful anniversary dinner. While short ribs are served at many places, San Fermo's had an extra depth of flavor that made them out of this world, and the polenta was delicious. The pasta we had was also quite special, a seasonal ravioli was rich and simple at the same time. More

We are regulars here but came to celebrate a birthday as we are rarely let down by the menu here. We had the butter lettuce salad, carrots, tuna dip, and the special pizza which was a bianca pizza with asparagus and prosciutto. Everything was amazing and well balanced in flavor. We also got a very reasonable bottle of wine for $44. Highly recommend! More

American | Ballard / Fremont, Seattle

This is a small but warm inviting restaurant. The minute I walked in, I was greeted by "Jones" (as it states on my receipt). She was fantastic and from New Jersey with a great presence. The menu is small but the food is wonderful. We started with the bibb salad, I had halibut, husband had pork chop and we finished off with profitaroles. (?) It was our anniversary and they treated us wonderfully. My only critique is, the profitaroles are more consistent with light biscuits. I make my own and they are lighter and fluffier. This place is legit. They make so many things homemade. There are things brewing in the kitchen in bubblers. Homemade rocky road ice cream with homemade marshmallows...Omg. Please give them a try and see all the uniqueness that is Brunswick and Hunt. More

The pork belly hash!!!!!!Amazingly good, it was the hit at the table. Still thinking about it. A friend had the cauliflower sandwich, which looked delicious. Bloody Mary's all around. Yum. And also the DUMP TRUMP cookie - we bought 2! (for the cause) Definitely will return. More

Absolutely love their food. Flavorful and authentic! Their tortillas are so amazing. My husband and I were so impressed with ALL of the salsas and guacamole. (We are hard to impress having just moved here from Texas). All of the food is just fantastic. Will be going back for many visits! More

Excellent paleo restaurant. Take the time to talk to your waiter. Loved that the chef came out to talk to us. They are very purposeful about what they serve and how they present it. More

Greek | Ballard / Fremont, Seattle

Food is delicious. Fresh and vibrant flavors. Great neighborhood casual vibe. Live music on Saturday nights. Portions are very large. Pita is tasty. Honestly, all of it was great. Heads up that the service is a bit unusual, sometimes giving unexpected responses to questions or wandering off mid-sentence. But she does seem to have a purpose when she walks away still talking, just a different style of interaction with people. Was great and hilarious about answering questions: example, meals came with a choice of side dish, including greek salad or authentic greek salad. We asked what was the difference and were treated to a hilarious diatribe about how a real Greek would be ashamed to eat lettuce and it's a useless vegetable, but some americans want it, so they have to offer it. Well then, we didn't dare order anything other than the "authentic greek salad." Although, honestly, I'm sure she'd have happily served us whatever we'd asked for. Lovely spot, we'll definitely be back. More

The Loft is Amazing! I have been a customer since it was opened several years ago. Many Ballard Bars try to imitate them but few succeed. A great place for people, Not pretentious, no evil eye from locals, and perfect blend of sports bar/cafe/late night spot. I don't know where Dan finds his employees but i have never been treated poorly there. Staff is quick and courteous and friendly. If you haven't been to the Loft yet I assume you just moved to Seattle this week. Check it out now .. Thank me later... More
