This is the finest Italian restaurant this side of Italy. The tasting menu is to die for but if just having a quick meal the pasta is ridiculous! More

$$$$
Contemporary French / American | Capitol Hill / First Hill, Seattle

Bateau is not your traditional steak house and if you prefer grass-fed beef to commodity, go here. A wide variety of cuts are available as well as interesting takes on classic sides. The steaks are very rich and flavorful, due to the grass diet, so you can go a bit smaller than corn fed. Service is attentive and particularly shines if you respect what makes Bateau unique. More

Contemporary American | Capitol Hill / First Hill, Seattle

We were visiting Seattle and having troubles finding places that offered healthier menu options, a variety of menu items (we have kids that are picky eaters) and offered items at a reasonable price. Tallulah's hit all of the above and oh so much more! Their dishes had tons of veggies in them and the decor was straight out of a magazine. Not to mention the tasty cocktails...We would definitely eat here again! More

Quinn's PubQuinn's Pub
75 reviews
$$$$
Gastro Pub | Capitol Hill / First Hill, Seattle

The food is delicious, especially their burger and fries. Quinn's is a great location if you are going to Neumos or Barboza. Quinn's is also fun if you like to "people watch" as both floors of the restaurant have nice lighting and views of Capital Hill life at Pike and 10th. However, when one of our party tried to get a drink at the bar, they were questioned as to whether they were eating at the restaurant. It is confusing that a reatai with a BAR seemed bothered by someone ordering at the bar. More

Italian | Capitol Hill / First Hill, Seattle

We all had a wonderful time. Our table server was great. There was one thing we all were not too happy about. The busboy kept wanting to take away the plates that we were still working on without asking us. He was so quick to take away the plates that we wanted to keep whereas when we wanted him to take away the empty glasses away, he wouldn’t. Perhaps the restaurant needs to give him more training in this area. Thanks. More
