Food was excellent overall for our group of 6 people. However, I ordered the signature pasta, a lamb meat sauce, and the pasta was under cooked. I know the difference between al dente and under cooked. This was under cooked. Also, I used open table for the reservation and in the comments section I wrote that I needed a comfortable table for a business dinner. When we arrived we were seated at a long table meant for communal dining and the other group we shared the table with were very loud. I thought that was rather inappropriate since I took the time to write a note to the restaurant when reserving the table. More

Our family was directed to a nice round table set up for 10 people. It was in an area away from the main crowds and we enjoyed it very much. Everyone got food that they liked and we all had a great time. I had made a cake for two of our daughters birthdays and the waitress brought us clean forks and little plates to serve the cake upon. They were very accomodating and did not make us feel rushed. We may make Bahama Breeze our annual dinner for the twins birthdays. More

I’ve lived in Seattle for almost 7 years and have been told many times that this place is a must-try.

Fabulous food, great service! We started with the mussels and both had the salmon. Wow!! Delicious!! Highly recommend!! I had a great local beer on draft and she had a local wine which she proclaimed was the best wine she’s had an a very long time!! More

Discover Downtown Seattle

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.
