- OTOpenTable DinerSan Francisco Bay Area •1 review5.0Dined 2 days agoGreta has been a server there for 17 years. I went in there once for the first time a year ago and I was lucky enough to have her again on my most recent second visit. She suggested the very best highlights of the menu and was even able to have them recreate an amazing off-menu squid ink pasta and prawn Calabrian chili dish that I got my very first time in. It was delightful because I had been thinking about that dish ever since that first time I had it a year ago. If you’re ever in Seattle, make sure you get a reservation for The Pink Door. It’s beyond excellent in every way. Every bite of everything we ordered was exquisite. From the scallops, to the affogato dessert, and every appetizer we had in between. This place is fabulous.More infoThe Pink DoorPrice: Expensive• Italian• Belltown / Pike Place Market•4.8

We usually go for brunch but a girlfriend and I were attending a concert so decided to go for dinner. The escargot were cooked perfectly and served with a baguette for dipping into the scrumptious sauce. We shared the cassoulet and it was cooked to perfection.More infoCafe CampagnePrice: Expensive• French• Belltown / Pike Place Market•4.7

- OTOpenTable DinervipPortland / Oregon •51 reviews5.0Dined on Jan 2, 2023We went to Cutter’s Crabhouse to celebrate the first visit to meet our first Great-Grandson. My wife has developed allergies over the last 2 years that were, at times, devastating. Brett, our server, introduced himself, he was friendly, professional, and attentive to details. We told him about her issues, produced a card listing all the allergies, and Brett asked if he could show it to the chef and get his suggestions for a “safe” dinner. He returned and said he was bringing Jackie, his manager, in to make sure there were no mistakes. Jackie took time to ask questions, listened to my wife’s answers, and took our orders and got us a great meal. Both of the Cutter personnel went above and beyond to ensure we had a great dining experience! Despite being busy and short staffed. Whenever we return to Seattle, we will be sure to stop at Cutter’s Crabhouse!More infoCutters CrabhousePrice: Moderate• Seafood• Belltown / Pike Place Market•4.4
