Great food and service! The halibut was to die for and the steak was cooked perfectly!
Lovely place and great food!
Fantastic meal with a fantastic staff and food.
The moment we were seated we were given 1 paper menu to share. Ten minutes later our waiter came, and my husband told him we'd like to have a drink first. The waiter wanted to take our whole order right then, so we decided on what we were ordering. Our drinks arrived with the delicious burrata salad. Hmm... was he listening? We ate the salad, because we figured the entree would soon follow, which it did. Both dishes were delicious, yet we waited... and waited for our second ordered drink, which arrived at least 10 minutes after we'd finished dinner. We let the waiter know it was my husband's birthday when we ordered, and reiterated that when he ordered dessert. The waiter brought it with zero fanfare- no candle, no "Happy Birthday!" Hmm... The atmosphere was sterile, rushed, and loud - somewhat uncomfortable metal chairs on concrete floors. The food was awesome, but service & ambiance were lacking.
Truffle fries were amazing as was the Mac n cheese- portions sizes for salmon and burger were smile- although a ton of fries…
Exceptional dinner and drinks. Service was fast and personal.
Delicious food and friendly attentive service. Truly an excellent spot to dine with friends
The barmaid/waitress took our order so quickly that I couldn't add a side to my order. We ordered a salad as an appetizer, but they brought it out with our dinner. We waited 30 minutes for something to eat. Then, when the runner brought out the salad and meals, I expressed dissatisfaction so he left the salad and took off with our dinners! When the food finally came back out, the steelhead was warm but dry. The barmaid wouldn't even look at me, let alone apologize for the mistake. The draft beer was not very cold. The room was drafty. Worst choice we made on this trip,definitely don't recommend.
I was excited to return after having a wonderful meal with out-of-town guests in the fall of 2019. Last night was not like that meal or experience - the service was not the same, nor was the quality of the food experience. And we were seated in a hide-away bar area upstairs (different name of establishment on the window), and certainly had an entirely different vibe than the restaurant (not chic at all). I had hyped the restaurant to friends that were joining us, and I felt bad that I had told them it was "so good". I was disappointed and it was an average experience.
Amazing! As always. Josh is the man too. Great service.
The food was amazing. I would recommend this restaurant to a friend! I didn't give service 5 stars because I felt like they pay too close of attention like they would try to pick up the plate when I took my last bite and hasn't even put the fork down. I think it's good to pay attention but it's kind of distracting. Although I prefer this over not paying attention at all :) Still appreciate their service and love our experience there.
Food was unbelievably salty probably due to the fact that covid doesnt let the chefs taste the food as they prepare it... Real disappointment and some of the dishes had a little too much char. Really missed the pre-covid flavor and good food they used to serve
Ran out of most of the dishes on the menu. The reservation I had was for the restaurant but our table was downstairs in a windowless room devoid of any ambiance. Really not great.
Very nice food, ambience and service, would definitely reccomend
Amazing experience all around
Food was under-seasoned and pricy. Drinks were good but pricy. Servers were very pleasant but forgot a couple of our requests. Overall good experience but there are other places nearby with higher quality at that price point.
Great food. Great service. Would recommend for a date night.
Creative menu and everything was expertly prepared. The scallops and chicken schnitzel were both outstanding. They accommodated my garlic allergy which was much appreciated.
Food very good and served hot which was much better than last visit. Service excellent.
One of our favorite downtown spots. Excellent service interesting craft cocktails and menu. First sit down visit since COVID. Music was a little loud but did not ruin evening. Wonderful oysters for an app, grilled Octopus prep changed but still very good. Everyone at the table enjoyed their main course selections; paella, halibut, scallops and trout. Highly recommend
Excellent, creative seafood. Helpful waiter. Proper concern for covid safety.
I was really disappointed in this restaurant. It was really good reviews but I’m not sure why. The food was at best average and the service was inconsistent. Our waiter was nice but we had to asked several times for drinks. My husband had to wait 15 minutes for his drink. The food is really overpriced and not worth it. I wouldn’t go back.
Great overall experience and the staff were very accommodating. Also, very apologetic about the longer than expected wait with our reservation ( this was no way a big deal for us, though, I can imagine some of you complaining). Our server was friendly and had answers to our questions. Being able to see the chefs do their thing was great, and I definitely appreciate the hard work they put into their craft. The Octopus was new for us and - while very salty - was great to try for the first time. It isn’t something we would order on our next visit. The Fried Green Tomatoes were very well done, not greasy, and the actual tomato still had it’s vibrancy. The Scallops were perfect. Honestly, the Oysters and the ambience were what we came for, and we were not disappointed. Mostly parties of two, with the one big group in the center. Everyone was in their own world for the most part, and you felt comfortable. A huge thank you to everyone at Shaker + Spear.
I took my mom and grandma here for Mother’s Day and it was so nice. The food was really amazing and not pricey at all. I bought 3 entrees an appetizer and a bottle of wine for under $200z
The interior is really fun and there is an awesome bar set up. I’m planning to bring any guests we have here in the future.
We sampled three or four of the appetizers and then each had a separate entrée followed by a split dessert. Cocktails on top of all that of course.
The food preparation was uniformly great and the service was outstanding. Really enjoyed chatting with the general manager who gave us a tour of his bank of the Sellitti downstairs and told us about surviving the past year. Looking forward to going back again sometime!
This restaurant was amazing! I made reservations for 5:00, as soon as they opened for dinner and we were one of very few groups in the restaurant. It was the perfect place for a date night. I had the best steak filet I’ve ever had and we also tried the burger and the potato bread, which were amazing. Everything was flavorful and perfectly cooked. Our waiter was amazing, funny and attentive. This will definitely be our new Seattle spot. The parking was the only downside, we had to park in a garage a few blocks away, but that’s to be expected downtown.
Birthday trip to Seattle.
First date - ton of fun. Liked the somm
The server/ wine person Ryan was really lovely and knowledgeable.
Buratta & asparagus was flavorful and beautiful.
Amazing service plus amazing food. Perfect birthday dinner for the wife.
Food were excellent 😋 when in Seattle, you must go!
Food was very tasty and staff was friendly. I would visit again!
Amazing time .
Great staff and amazing food! Would definitely go back for another amazing experience! Travis and much and TBD chef's cuisine and style of cooking were beyond superb! 5 stars all the way!
The service was excellent, but the food was just ok. It wasn’t anything to write home about.
My family loves to go to Shaker + Spear for celebration dinners, because the food is amazing and the service is so good. This was the perfect place for our first family meal out in over a year.
Nate was absolutely amazing and took great care of us. The general manager stopped by our table and introduced himself, a classy atmosphere all the way around I can’t wait to go back.
Great experience, fantastic food. Everything from drinks to dessert was amazing.
Amazing food and service. Clean, quiet atmosphere. Perfect date night. Recommend the charred octopus starter and the scallop entree.
Delicious food. The salted cod beignets surprised me. The waiter recommended them and I wanted to order another!
