Contemporary American | Capitol Hill / First Hill, Seattle

Overall the food was very good! The portions were small and therefore I don't feel they were a good value. I'd have been perfectly happy with the price-point if the portions were a bit bigger. There were 4 of us dining together, eating family style. I don't think any of us left the restaurant full, let's put it that way. They were out of an appetizer and a beer that we ordered and I think they were also out of one of the entrees we wanted (although now I'm not completely sure on that one). Our server was just friendly enough but didn't come by our table very often. He also didn't try to engage with us, he just did the bare minimum. Overall, we had a good experience, but it could have been better if we'd been able to order everything we wanted and if our server had been more attentive. More

We chose Poquitos because it looked like they had more interesting variations of Mexican food than we have at home and we were not disappointed. The food and the service were both excellent. However, if you want to have a conversation, forget it. It is SO noisy that we could not hear each other across the table. Other than that it was a great meal. More

Japanese | Capitol Hill / First Hill, Seattle

We all ordered the 3 course meal, which was creatively presented and delicious (all 4 diners felt good about their choices; everything was uber fresh and cooked perfectly). The service was professional without being stuffy or pompous. And our servers were very knowledgeable about the menu and the food itself, i.e., the ingredients, preparation method, source of food, etc. Impressive. The miso soup was quite good -- probably the tastiest miso we've ever had (unusually creamy for traditional miso soup, but delicious!) The only negative was I felt the final bill was a bit overpriced, for the amount of food presented in each dish, and also their "upcharge" for items that I consider standard in a Japanese dinner: they charge $5 extra for white rice and miso soup with their 3 course dinner!

Mexican | Capitol Hill / First Hill, Seattle

The service was good - our server explained the daily specials, provided recommendations, delivered items and cleared the table when appropriate, refilled beverages, all while not being too overbearing. My partner and I were both craving classic margaritas and they hit the spot. We ordered the queso which was good, but not fantastic, however, the salsa was tasty. I had the shrimp tacos (comes with 4!) and also had a side of rice and beans. The flavors worked well and the portions were more than enough. She had a rich stuffed pepper dish and is still talking about how much she enjoyed it. We enjoyed a shot of espresso at the end and walked home, well fed and refreshed. More

Went to Dunbar Room for Mother’s Day Brunch. Greeted promptly, wished a Happy Mother’s Day and seated st a very small table for 4. We had an 11:00 reservation and there were only a few other patrons dining, yet, we were seated right next to another party. The table was barely big enough for drinks and coffee, let alone water glasses and plates. The food was good. Not outstanding. The Caprese eggs were tasty but cold and had hard pieces of egg dispersed through the helping I took. The pastries were very good, light and flaky. The roasted herb potatoes were very good tasting but could’ve been cooked a few more minutes. Our server, a young lady, (can’t remember names very well) was attentive to our needs, friendly and warm. The piano player was very good but played too loudly for the small amount of people in the room. More
