The Pink Door is part circus burlesque, part Italian restaurant, and is one of the best dining experiences you can have in Seattle.

Service was awful, didn’t get offered bread like all the other tables, garlic bread (that we bought separately) was burnt I couldn’t even eat it. Food was good not a lot of flavor but still really good.

As usual, the food and ambience are great at The Pink Door! We always enjoy ourselves when going here and enjoy bringing out of town guests. I am disappointed in the professionalism of our server at lunch yesterday. He had very poor service skills and had a disagreeable personality that ultimately impacted our dining experience.

We came here for our anniversary, the staff was very accommodating I had made reservation for by the window but decided we wanted to move after being seated to the lounge/show area. Our sever was very sweet she brought us a small glass of prosecco to toast and treated us to dessert after our meal. Overall the experience and service was amazing, the food was good not great.

This is a hidden gem! My wife and I made a reservation weeks in advance celebrating our honeymoon. Not only were we greeted with smiles and a champagne toast at our table, we had the best view in the house with the Bayfront view. The food and service were over the top as we were not rushed and enjoyed every second of our appetizer, meal and drinks. The view was the best in the house and it was the perfect place to have a date as it is not loud and we were able to have a conversation at a normal voice. Wish I lived closer to to Seatlle to visit this wonderful establishment on a weekly basis!

The food was delicious but there was this one guy that asked me to moved my napkin because his 2 hands were occupied and he was sarcastic when he said "I only have 2 hands", i don't mind moving the napkin but I mind the comment, I didn't travel from LA to get that kind of service at a high recommended it restaurant.

Food is excellent as always, but server could be friendlier. I asked for special of the day, waiter told me everything is on the menu. I’ve been there many times (10+), they always have something not in the menu or the fish of the day; something to that sort. Also, I had to ask for bread while other tables are served without asking. Disappointing!

Pink Door is one of those special experiences that you have every few years, if you're lucky. One of those hidden gems that you just happen to stumble upon- encountering a buzzing, musical hub down a flight of stairs. I felt like I was walking into a Speakeasy. It was wonderful and the food seemed to be cooked by a fleet of Nonnas. Cannot recommend highly enough- the lasagne, the handcrafted cocktails, the swelling, uptempo music, it was amazing and purely memorable. Less about filling your tummy, and more about a fantastic experience. Highly recommend going at night.

Waitstaff was attentive and helpful. The menu was varied and our party of four enjoyed everything we ordered. Two of us had dietary restrictions and the waiter went through the menu, meal by meal, to let us know what we could eat given our intolerances. You know it's a good restaurant when everyone gets their dish and makes yummy sounds. Highly recommend and will definitely be back.

The entertainment was awesome! We went on a Sunday night (when the aerialist performs), and were very impressed by her talent. It's not often you get to watch a trapeze act inches from your table in a dimly lit, cozy Italian restaurant. That being said, the food was only fair. It wasn't bad by any means, but I was expecting much better things out of the kitchen based on the price tag of the meals. The meals were also pretty small portion sizes. My husband is 6'9" and consumes a lot of calories a day, and he ate two whole baskets of bread in addition to the meal and left hungry. (This might be a special case, but I did feel cheated on the amount of food for the money.) All in all, you're paying for the entertainment and the ambiance of the place, which was superb and well worth it.

Everyone raves about pink door. It’s cute, hidden and a nice little Italian spot, but nothing so memorable or insane that I’d die to go back. They do shows (burlesque) and so not knowing this and seeing a line down the alley to get it, I was a bit confused. We did get to skip that line, but no one tells you this. Because a show was going on we were seated in the very far back. It was freezing inside the restaurant- we asked for them to look into it because everyone was wearing their parkas. Overall the food was ok and I didn’t see the show or wasn’t even told about it and offered to buy a ticket- wish they had said something.

My husband and I celebrated our 3 year anniversary on Halloween here and our waiter was dressed as Ursula and really took care of us. We even got two free glasses of prosecco. The entire staff was in costume, and Ronald McDonald was doing Karaoke. So much fun! And the food was delicious as always, you really can't go wrong with anything on the menu, even if you can't pronounce it 😂.

Pink Door offers an amazing dining experience. The alleyway entrance leads downstairs to a fun dining room, but there’s a second space with a large window overlooking the Pike Street Market and bay! The service was perfect, and the food was delicious. While our cioppino o and lasagna were fresh with flavorful twists, the bread pudding was one of the best desserts ever!
