Atmosphere was great for Valentines Day! We had expected live music. They have done that in the past.
Food was pretty good, but portions a bit small. Wedding cake dessert was fabulous!

Very disappointing. Cocktails were good, food was just ok but very expensive. Awkward / uncomfortable service.

Pleasantly surprised! Lived here 2 years and never wanted to go in as I moved from Napa and thought it wouldn't measure up. It was a great dinner and experience.

We were placed right next to the wine tasting table. Lots of traffic, noise. Iwe would have been much happier sitting at a table in the bar.

I reserved a table for two for my boyfriend's birthday, and this dinner did not disappoint! It was incredibly romantic, and they even sat us next to the fireplace. I could tell our server was very pleased to be waiting on a young couple on a special night out, and she gave us very honest recommendations that made the evening that much more special. The ambience was very cozy and private. I would definitely recommend this place as a treat for someone special.

There is 3% surcharge for which they don’t tell you and it goes to the business owner per waitress.

My friend and I visit Sip about once a month as a middle meeting ground for staying in touch with one another. We especially like going on Wednesdays since it's half-price bottled wine night and with Sip's impressive wine selection, it's always an adventure to try a new wine. Service is always attentive but unobtrusive, and the owner/manager usually stops by to chat briefly. With each visit, it feels more and more like the place where 'everybody knows your name' :-).

The only downside to this last visit was our dessert, which was a pear-apple cobbler topped with vanilla ice cream. The cobbler itself was really more like a piece of pie and its crust was as hard & tasteless as cardboard. The filling was good, but scarce...thank goodness for the generous & delicious scoop of ice cream that topped it.

I emphasize this was an anomalous occurrence in all the time I've patronized this restaurant, so please take the info into account accordingly.

Looking forward to our next visit, which will be our holiday get-together. See you there!

This is a restaurant that could be super good, but it misses on a few key points. When we got our final bill, we noticed that there was a 3% surcharge added to the total. What?? When asked, the waitress said the owner does that instead of raising the price of meals. I find that sneaky and deceptive and have never seen that at a restaurant before. Probably most people don't even notice it, which is I'm sure what he's hoping for. Really not cool. Just be transparent and put the real prices on your menu, bud. There is an extensive wine list but no one could manage to find the type of wine we were looking for on their digital wine list. The sommelier seemed lost. Very very talkative but not much knowledge of wines offered there or how to find them. She spent way too long at our table being not helpful. The one she finally recommended for a hundred bucks was a disappointment. On the positive side, the place has a nice atmosphere and the food is quite good. We had a great manhattan at the bar before dinner and the bartenders were amicable and skilled at their craft, if it can be called that. The fireplace is nice and we will go back and eat at the bar next time.

Nice ambiance for a date. The food was good, the portion size a little on the small side.

Loved the ambiance and menu. Always try to make a trip to Sip when in Fall City. Wonderful neighborhood restaurant. Always interesting to see what is featured on their menu.
