I started with the fried pork/shrimp wontons, which were overly fried -- too brown and crunchy, but very tasty nonetheless. Main course was the seared ahi tuna. This cooked perfectly and delicious. The accompanying salad, although creative, was dry in the mouth because of the mint, and pretty plain without the mint. Dessert was the Douglas signature triple coconut cream pie -- complete perfection. So, overall, did not meet my full expectations for a TD restaurant, but a good place to eat. I will probably go back to try other appetizers and entrees before writing a full review. More

I hadn't eaten there before but the salad I had was excellent. However, the only minor problem was that one of our party had the barley and kale? salad and there was almost no barley in it, but the female waitperson was excellent and took care of it and brought extra barley to the table which made her salad excellent. I loved the karaoke, didn't realize they had it here. And the sports TV's were excellent for keeping up on the mariners score too. More

Delicious Food, Nice setting. Very friendly staff. I will probably come back but I would definitely warn anyone eating there watch out. They automatically add the tip and don't make much of a note of it, so I did not realize until later they got me for about a 45% tip. that left a bit of a bad taste in my mouth.

We walked in and immediately assumed that we were going to get a “Friday’s restaurant” type experience - kitschy restaurant with lower quality food. We were wrong. Kitschy restaurant? Yes. Food quality? Really good. Everything from the burgers to the kids cheese pizza to the salmon on a bed of mixed greens was delicious. And, we were totally impressed that The Pike Pub makes their own catsup (or now has it made for them) and that they are a no GMO, no high fructose corn syrup restaurant. Our kids were happy and the adults were happy which is sometimes a hard combination! The service was excellent and our server was very knowledgeable as well as very accommodating to special requests. Definitely recommended for family dining. More

We took my mom to Frolik for Mother's Day because we knew there would be a stunning view on a gorgeous day. Everything was fantastic on the patio! The only thing I would recommend is that the patio has some umbrellas or something, because we seriously got sunburned from being out there for 2+ hours. Also, offering more vegan options would be really helpful! 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.
