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

Ratings 9.0-9.8:If the 8.5-9.0s are the restaurants you’ll frequent for more than just special occasions, the 9.0-9.8s are the all time great restaurants of their city. Restaurants that will be around 20 years from now, assuming the Earth is still around.

Setting & service were excellent. Appetizers were great. Main course unimpressive. Ciopino was bland, vongole was smothered in bacon so couldn’t taste the clams. Rigatoni & sausage was the only winner.

We had lunch at the Pink Door. Lasagna - melts in your mouth!! We asked what was in it and were informed no meat and no cheese - what?? It was heavenly. We also had their specialty lunch pizza which was very flavorful. Had a view of Pike Place Market which was fun to watch all the activity while enjoying lunch.

It’s a little difficult to find the restaurant down Post Alley, no signage just a light pink door.

The Pink Door was a great restaurant tor my friends to come to. I was visiting a friend that lived in the Seattle area and she had not been here before. We would have loved to have received the bread basket that all of the other tables around us had received, but we did not. Overall however, it was wonderful food!

The Pink Door is one of my favorite spots in my city of Seattle. I have eaten there at least four times this season. One of the draws in the summer, besides the spectacular patio overlooking Puget Sound, are the dishes with extraordinary heirloom tomatoes! The caprese salad featuring fresh mozzarella and heirloom tomatoes and bruschetta with the tomatoes are fabulous!

On this particular visit for my birthday, our server was wonderful, the weather was terrific, all of our food was exemplary and the view unmatched. We concluded our meal with fresh brewed coffee and a tantalizing lemon tart! You must visit The Pink Door!

Great everything!! My Daughter and Son in Law had 2 drinks ordered for us upon arrival. This was for my wife's 60th Birthday Dinner. They delivered promptly. The food was excellent and the Lasagna was excellent as usual. Service was great. The only blemish is that when we've dine an many top line restaurants and I make reservation for a very special event like a 60th Bday, we've always been presented a small cake, coffee or something to end the night. It's always a very classy touch. We didn't see our server once the bill was laid down. Missed opportunity. Still one of our favorites in Seattle!!

Went a little earlier than reservation, very accommodating. Evidently it is the place to go around Pike's Market....there was a line outside before it opened. Quite a bit of ambiance...lots of mirrors. Food was okay. A little offended that the first drink was No No Trump but it is Seattle!.

Food was ok. Found a rock in my food probably due to the clams but still there was a rock in my food. All the waiter did was take it away and that was it. Waitress only checked on us probably once or twice, Could have been better.

We had a reservation and were seated immediately.
We were greeted and provided with specials by our friendly server.
She brought us complimentary glasses of prosecco for our anniversary.
The grilled octopus was tasty and well seasoned. Not the most tender octopus I have ever had but still very good.
We shared the summer risotto next. Perfectly seasoned. Anise was the predominant flavor. Still delicious and creamy with very fresh crab.
The cioppino was tasty. The broth was similar to a minestrone. The seafood was just a touch overcooked.
Overall a very lovely meal. Excellent service.

This restaurant is all about interiors. The ambiance was intimate and good for dates especially if you are seated near the front where they have live music. At the back of the restaurant offers a great view. The food was okay or below average. Ordered Linguine but it was undercooked and too salty for me. Offers only a handful of dessert menu so not a lot of options especially for dessert lovers and with sweet tooth like me. Would i recommend this for a date? Yes. But for food quality and service, my apologies but no.

Our first time in Seattle & any time I researched places to go for dinner, this spot popped up! An awesome (and kind of hidden!) joint on the very cool Post Alley, and the restaurant is really pretty inside & way bigger than I expected. We started with the octopus (yum) and got entrees we both loved (mine was the mixed seafood -- forget the name) and my boyfriend got the rabbit. Both really great dishes -- my only negative comment would be that my portion felt a bit small. Would definitely recommend & go back to try other things here!

Highly recommend their garlic bread for the extra $6 - it was delicious!! The ahi tuna app was awesome as well. The food was very good, but be prepared for an extremely limited protein menu. When we visited there was only one fish dish (they were not offering the branzino style that night), one beef, one pork and one rabbit dish. No chicken. So if you’re looking for pasta you’re in the right place.
