Comfort Food | Downtown, Seattle

Loved it! The food was outstanding and the atmosphere unique and fun. It's a small place and very popular so you need a reservation. I only wish there were a few more entrees to choose from on the menu, but the ones we ordered were delicious and I'd rather have quality food than a huge menu of options. I had the brisket and my boyfriend had the meatloaf sandwich. He had a beer and I had the cider which was nice and dry and crisp. The brisket was tender and I loved the arugula side. The sauce on the brisket was unlike any I've tasted. It's very noisy, so not great for a first date or if you're trying to catch up with an old friend! But otherwise the noise wouldn't bother me, it makes for a fun night out. More

I don’t miss an opportunity to eat or grab a drink here. Service is always good, and the food excellent. This has become my ECCC lunch hack, as it’s close to the convention center but off the radar for most. Paid off again this year, with plenty of open space - but I’d made a reservation just to be on the safe side! More

I took my husband here for his 40th birthday lunch. We sometimes go to Rider on date nights because their tasting menu is delicious and a good value in comparison to other fine dining restaurants. The staff did a wonderful job of making us feel special. Later in the evening we went to Aerlume for dinner and their service was sad in comparison. I regret taking him there. For anyone looking for a special occasion dining experience I would highly recommend Rider. They put the effort into making your experience delightful. More

I met a local on Maui and she recommended Daniel’s. The staff at the Hyatt Regency Seattle also gave you great reviews. We’re visiting from Hawaii and will recommend you to people that I come in contact with. I’m a Bell Captain and meet new people everyday that I’m working. If I find out they’re heading to Seattle, you can bet I’ll send them to Daniel’s Broiler !!! More

Tanakasan is a very reliable place for good meal that is nice while still feeling casual. The setting is a bit unique, being open to the building it is inside of, and the noise level isn't quiet, but there is plenty of room between tables so it allows you to relax and have fun. The food varies from decent to outstanding, the dumplings are always worth ordering, the chicken wings are amongst the best in Seattle, the coconut beef is a nice sweet/savory entree, and the shrimp pancake is a real winner. The Happy Hour is terrific, and the house cocktails are very good, especially the sake slushies. More

For a hotel restaurant, this place is pretty good. We had a very attentive wait person who went out of his way to make us comfortable. My only complaint about the menu is there could be a little more variety regarding the variations you can request for the build your own burger and there could be two or three more specific choices. I do recommend it for anyone, either staying at the hotel or just walking in off the street. Great table views of Seattle street life. More

The service here is spectacular. The minute you walk in you always get greeted with a smile and friendly face. The food wasn't 100% as good as we remember, but the value, service and location make up for it. We joined 2 friends for my hubby bday and from the minute we sat down the restaurant wanted to celebrate with us- dessert would be on them. They were attentive and didn't nickle and dime us for a few extra crackers or such and that is so welcome! Overall, it is a great steak house with good prices and convenient to the theater. Highly recommend and happy to return. More

The we stayed at the hotel and ate at the restaurant for breakfast. The ambiance was very fun and everything seemed hand-picked and curated. The service staff was very friendly and helpful. They accidentally served me cream that was started to turn (it did not taste bad but curdled in my coffee) and apologized many times and got me new coffee and even discounted my food, which was very kind. The food was filling and the biscuits were excellent. My only wish is they offered the brunch menu all week, as I wanted to try some of the eggs Benedict, but it makes sense they cannot serve everything when there were only a few customers for breakfast during the week.

The serving part was great, except we ordered a bottle wine and the server bring us the cheapest one but after tasting it he was ok by changing the bottle for the one we wanted from the beginning. The food was very very salty and spicy. We couldn't return it back cause we already had to deal with a glass of champagne for which i was waiting for about 15 mins and i did not drink cause it didn'treally have a good taste, but it was in my bill and i paid for. Nevermind. The other thing is the too loud music because of what i could not hear my friends i was dining with. We had other expectations? but life happens. More

Everything was great but the Thanksgiving winelist was very limited. If we didn’t want a very inexpensive glass of wine (we didn’t and the options were limited to 3), we had to order a full bottle in the $100 range. There was nothing in the middle which is a trick restaurants use to force diners to spend more for the wine. We ordered a $180 bottle since it was a special day, but just didn’t like having very few options. More

Downtown Seattle offers a unique culinary experience. Here, you’ll find access to fresh, diverse, and delicious food. A trip to the local market may culminate in an unparalleled seafood odyssey. If you prefer to sample the local chef-made offerings, you can find some of the best clam and salmon chowders in the country (sorry New England). While downtown, you should also take advantage of one of the most developed coffee scenes in America. In that same vein, Seattle’s craft beer offerings are also impressive. Washington State is also home to impressive produce. Local apples and cherries are a true delicacy. in addition to traditional American dishes and international cuisine, but you would be remiss not to sample the plentiful options for authentic Asian dishes, Polynesian fare, and authentic African cuisine.
