We went here for Valentine's Day and were offered as we walked in the Chef's table which is behind the bar in the kitchen. It was nothing fancy with a couple stools and a bar table but the chefs were very interactive and full of entertainment to talk with. The food is unique and the cocktails are great!

Nice open kitchen dining room. Pleasant not too crowded but full. Not too noisy. Pace of service was prompt and attentive. Not rushed. Food server was a nice woman who knew the menu and accommodated our mixed needs of vegetarian and meat eating diners. Cocktails are shaken and crafted. Started our meal with thin and fresh tortilla chips served with the trio of salsas. Could have taken a straw to the Picosa (roasted tomatillo with dried chilies), We started the meal with a lightly dressed beet and cucumber salad. Then settled on the Rajas Poblano tacos—three per plate. Poblano pepper, queso Oaxaca, carmelized onion and poblano cream sauce made the vegetarian tacos of a philly cheese steak, but much lighter. The spaghetti squash tacos were delicious and equally rich. My wife and friend really enjoyed the fish and shredded chicken tacos. The dessert was incredibly satisfying—a churro and salted caramel ice-cream sandwich drizzle with Carmel sauce and some sweet creamy sauce. Insane! More

Our dinner at Marjorie's was treat. Donna, the owner, was open and told us about the restaurant's name. We told her we were attending a play and she was very attentive to our time. The food was outstanding. Both entrees, chicken tika masala and gnocci were delicious and the carrots with za'atar amazing. I highly recommend Marjorie's. More

Italian | Capitol Hill / First Hill, Seattle

Had been wanting to try Vitos for some time, intrigued by the old italian 50's mob heritage. It was a great place to celebrate a birthday and they accommodated a switch from 4 to 5 guests on a Friday night. The food was delicious - small appetizer pizzas, an antipasto tray (watch out for ghost pepper salami), mains included large portion lasagna, perfectly cooked short ribs and large portion chicken marsala. No one left hungry or disappointed. Desert came with a candle and plate sized tiramisu. The music started at 9, right as we were ending our meal and we could see the band - a crowd started coming in and it felt like an old timey jazz bar - highly recommend for a fun nite out that is more than just grabbing a bite.

When trying to find a new restaurant for Valentine's Day dinner, Oddfellows came up and I'm so glad it did (thanks Open Table). Our waitperson was friendly, upbeat and gave off a great vibe - always adding to any dinner experience. I had a gin cocktail that was a bit small for the money ($11) for a champagne-size class but yummy. Hubby had beer and we were off to the races. A carrot-ginger was the soup of the evening and it was soup-crack! A bit on the spicy side ("ginger forward", as described by our waiter) and truly full of carrot flavor. It was only served by the bowl - a lovely soup to share. The chicken was a sizable portion, juicy and accompanied by a delicious side of sautéed greens. I could have eaten a bowl of the greens. My husband ordered the steak special and it was very small and gristly. Not impressive but not worth a complaint. We passed on dessert because we were so satisfied and full. We will return with heartier appetites. More

Three friends met at Jimmy's for a late lunch mid-week. It was very quiet, the food was delicious (we all opted for comfort food) and the wine selection (by the glass) was nice. We had a very tasty California sauvignon blanc. And, because we were dining in off hours, we had the waiter to ourselves. I would definitely go back, especially since I'm often looking for a nice meal mid-afternoon. More

The flavors were intense and wonderful, and we both kept trying to steal bites off the others plate but at the same time guard our own. The staff was very attentive, kind, but not over-bearing, as well as they can make craft cocktails if you just give them flavors and a base liquor it was AMAZING!! More

They answered all questions and even brought over a complimentary dessert for the birthday girl. Wasn't too crowded and was delicious as always. They had great non-sushi options for a few people from the group who aren't sushi fans. We ate in the dining room, but I've been there for happy hour, too, which is awesome and a super good deal.
