Mexican | Ballard / Fremont, Seattle

Took my wife to Gracia for Valentine's day 2018. We haven't been there since last summer and forgot how good it was. For the Main entree we split the octopus...it was simply the best octopus ever! Tender with perfect flavor and crispy ness. Had the tuna ceviche appetizer special...and regretted not ordering two! I can't miss their tacos, so we added a barbacoa taco and a beef brisket taco for the final course. Including shots and beers we got out of there for ninety bucks! Insane good food, chef Chet is a genius and it's fun to watch his team make it happen. More

Greek | Ballard / Fremont, Seattle

As we walked in for our reservation, there was an argument going on between the cook and what appeared to be every other employee. Great start!! Got seated, menus, & water. Drinks took quite a while. Food came out slow, but there was a large party getting served. Food was awesome. Somehow the arguing cook & the rest of the crew manage to put out a great product. The live music, singing, and a belly dancer made it well worth enduring the worst service we have experienced in years. More

We had to wait a few extra minutes for our table, but the host went out of his way to make us feel good about it - gave us some champagne, acknowledged and apologized for the wait. The food was excellent - we shared an entree (the bavette steak) and a couple of appetizers. The wine list was quote good as well. It is a bit on the expensive side (most entrees are $40 and above).

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
