Italian | Lake Union / Eastlake, Seattle

Food was exquisite. Only two (minor) complaints: bill was put on our table when we had just started to eat dessert, which seems inappropriate at a fine restaurant. Table next to us was exceedingly loud and person seated immediately adjacent to me continually bumped into our table--maybe separate these tables a bit more? Would definitely return as food was truly memorable. More

An absolutely perfect experience. We were out to celebrate my little brother's 21 birthday, and both our server and the bartender went above and beyond to make our celebration a success. The ambiance was lovely, the food was great, and the kitchen was very accommodating of food intolerances. More

Korean | Lake Union / Eastlake, Seattle

We had the opportunity to visit Revel on the evening prior to boarding a ship for an Alaskan cruise and the experience was excellent! Hannah's service and guidance with the menu was perfect and the food was an exciting blend of the known and the less-known! We would recommend a visit to Revel for anyone who lives in the Seattle area as well as for visitors, such as we were, who are looking for something a bit out of the ordinary and highly exceptional.

Daniel's Broiler - Lake UnionDaniel's Broiler - Lake Union

Steak | Lake Union / Eastlake, Seattle

Alaskan "Copper River King Salmon" is the yearly highlight of Salmon season in Seattle, WA, and it only runs for about one month. Daniel's Broiler was doing their first grilling of this extraordinary delicacy the night we arrived, fully expecting to have a hard time choosing the steak of the night: but, folks who really know how to grill steaks, and that's the Daniel's folks, are the first choice for grilling Copper River Salmon! So we both (after a long and serious discussion with our delightful, and highly attentive, waitress) ordered it "medium rare, with excessive warnings that it should not be even a tad past that," and it was PERFECT! PERFECT! That's it. The head waiter dropped by to check things out, and we, again, said "PERFECT!" Over and out! More

Mexican | Lake Union / Eastlake, Seattle

There doesn’t seem to be a link between actual open tables and the Open Tables app. I made a reservation and it took 20 minutes for an actual table to open up for us. Once the food showed up - it was delicious! Just think the staff was overwhelmed with the lunch rush - but the lack of real-time table availability could be improved upon. More

Seafood | Lake Union / Eastlake, Seattle

Six of us had an early dinner on a recent Thursday, so it was quieter than normal, which we liked. Although I expect that high ceiling would dissipate sound well during peak times. Every dish was fabulous. The highlight was a large, fried Rockfish. The wine was excellent and reasonably priced. Our server was knowledgeable and responsive. Although the total cost was expensive, it was worth it. More

Birch is a great little secret of Seattle’s. There were surprisingly few people eating there when I took my friend to celebrate a birthday. The food was amazing; delicious and beautiful. The service staff was attentive without being intrusive. We did the tasting menu and the wine pairing, which is exactly what I’ll do next time I go there. More

Discover Lake Union

The cuisine in Seattle's Lake Union/Eastlake neighborhood is as diverse as the population with something for every taste. The waters of the Puget Sound provide an abundance of fresh seafood. Local favorites include wild-caught salmon, Dungeness crab and savory oysters from the nearby Canadian shores of Fanny Bay. Visitors to Seattle can also find plenty of Asian-inspired fare, from upscale pho and ramen houses to revolving sushi bars. Northwest natives care about their health and that of the environment, so most restaurants have vegan and organic options. Try vegan donuts, rich vegan chocolate cake or flourless pancakes at one of Seattle's many vegan bakeries. The public transportation system in Seattle is excellent, so leave your car at home, take the bus or train to the city and bring your appetite!
