Seafood | Lake Union / Eastlake, Seattle

This place was a gem! I am sorry I missed happy hour because the raw oyster deal looked great. They had a nice selection of oysters from the raw bar. The cocktail I had was perfect. For dinner, I had the steamed clams and fried Brussel sprouts and both were flavorful and more than enough for one person. I would definitely return next time I’m in town. More

Contemporary Italian | Lake Union / Eastlake, Seattle

The food was as advertised. The pasta is better than most restaurants in Seattle. The wait staff seemed a little put off that we weren't willing to be rushed through dinner. The one downside of this restaurant is that it is extremely loud. It appeared that they were aware of the problem. There are a few sound dampening pads on the ceiling, but not nearly enough. By the end of the meal, we were all touching shoulders as we had to lean in to hear each other. More

Loved the Food! The guacamole was Delicious and served with fried flour tortilla chips, something a little different and very good! All of our dinner selections were also very good. Have been there in past summers and eaten on the patio which has an amazing view and is a great place to enjoy a summer cocktail. More

Maslow’s by FarestartMaslow’s by Farestart

American | Lake Union / Eastlake, Seattle

My adult daughter and I chose Maslow's for a quick dinner before leaving for the airport. It was "restaurant week" but, although that menu looked good, we chose to order off the regular menu. House salads with a balsamic dressing on the side were very good, with a mixture of greens and other veggies. My scallops were excellent and I am a self-avowed scallops snob. My daughter was happy with her sandwich - a variation on a French dip. 2 salads, 2 mains, and soft drinks, with tip, was about $70. Service was efficient but not rushed. Restaurant is large, tables are well-spaced, and it has abundant natural light. I like the "farestart" aspect of dining here, too. It's win-win to have a very good meal and also feel like I'm contributing to a good cause. More

Korean | Lake Union / Eastlake, Seattle

The food was amazing. That is what would bring us back. Our original waiter was great. Very accommodating to dietary restrictions with our group. He was going off shift in the middle of our meal. Passed us off to a waitress that pretty much avoided us, which couldn't be easy as we sat right next to the order station. When 20% tip is built in, it's hit or miss with the service levels in Seattle. Thanks for the reminder. More

The clam chowder is AMAZING! I'm generally not a fan of clam chowder but had to try some of my husband's bowl since Ivar's is known for their chowder. I'm a convert!! Really good. I enjoyed all my food, the service and the view. Would definitely go again! More

Since Flying Fish opened in it's original location it has consistently been first rate in every way. Add to that a waiter like Fernando and you've got a home run. He is one of the best in the city. Always a good time with good food and good service. More

The Men of Kenatic gathered here for a working dinner and everyone agreed Henry's is worth a return visit. Better than normal pub grub with a nice selection of beers. Whilst a chain it had a nice vibe that works in trendy SLU. The Men of Kenatic say Yes to Henry's! More
