Contemporary American | Capitol Hill / First Hill, Seattle

The food menu is certainly interesting. They've split it in to 3 sections with a few options in each. I dined with a friend and, as we have similar tastes, we often order a dish each and share. The cauliflower and chicory salad were both excellent. The mushroom flat bread was good but not mindblowing (a bit burnt around the edges for me). The entrees were where (I thought) the execution could've been improved. More

Food was great, wonderful ambiance and service with a casual but professional feel. Some dishes were very French as in not a lot of filler which is nice. Oysters were really fresh and good but I would like some horseradish or vinegar as a garnish. Definitely would go again. More

Went there for dinner on a Monday night, the place was quiet, with mellow background music that allowed for conversation. The staff was friendly and the food came out super fast. We noticed they have “meatless Monday’s” which doesn’t replace meat regulars, but offers a vegetarian special as fun and healthy alternative. More

First time here and the food and service was great. I sat at the bar while waiting for a friend and ended up eating at the bar also due to the service and care. Donny the bartender is the best. He knows tequila well and provided some great recommendations. The carne asada with the chorizo is a savory combination. I will definitely come back to try some other food items and to try a flight of tequila. More

Stumbled upon this place while organizing a pub crawl and was lucky to get a 10pm seating last Saturday night. There's a slight attitude at the door, but that quickly gives way to the warmth of the inside. The drinks were imaginative and we gave the bar folks creative license. The food was awesome and easily shared. Fun & different for sure. More

Server was nice, but refused to bring us water. We asked twice. Told us we had to go the bar for that. We were dining. Not just doing drinks and apps. The manager was the only one who didn't mind getting us water. It just didn't make sense to me. I "could" have gotten my own water from the bar. But why? How hard is that. I am in the service industry btw.....so I understand what busy looks like. More
