What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
9.2

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.

Have dined at the Pink Door several times and always a delightful treat. The innovative menu is amazing and never disappoints. Flavors are amazing and beyond satisfying. Love their signature soup! Pasta perfection and appetizers unique and beautiful presentation. Highly recommend the Pink Door, but make reservations early. We have been turned away before weeks ahead of desires dates. Five Star meals and service.

I came to the Pink Door with my girlfriend. We sat near the window by the waterfront, which was amazing.

We ordered the cheese board deluxe and it was fantastic. Well worth the money spent.

I order a jack & Coke, while my girlfriend ordered a Tito’s with ginger ale.

I ordered a rigatoni entree and it was barely enough to feed a small child. My girlfriend ordered the linguine and to no surprise the dish was small.

After leaving the restaurant I spent about $100. Very disappointed with the portion size for the main entree.

The restaurant was nice, but I wouldn’t go here more than once.a year. It seemed to be more talk than anything.

When I made the reservation I said one person was in a wheelchair and we were celebrating a birthday. When we got to the restaurant, the first thing we see is a threshold a wheelchair cannot go over and a flight of stairs going down. . . plus a hostess that was not friendly or not trying to help the situation. I told her what the reservation said and she ignored me. Plus nothing was said or done for the birthday celebration.
BUT our server was friendly and her service was great. Plus the food and drinks were very good.

Thomas was a superb waiter. He really made our experience. My favorite restaurant in Seattle. Authentic Italian and fabulous wine list. My sister was visiting from New Jetseg and was so impressed by the food.
Your Oysters were the BEST I ever had!!

We were seated by the window facing pike market and the water, which was fantastic! The lighting and candles in the room were nicely adjusted.
Food wise it was kind of mediocre. We actually liked trout which was the fish of the day. However, there was too few choices on the menu. Maybe the appetizers and desserts were just not cater to our taste.

This was our second visit and (like the first), it was fab! The menu suited all 4 guests, (and I have dairy/gluten sensitivities). The food is beautifully presented and very tasty - the tuna appetizer is delicious, and the roasted garlic - fantastic. Our main courses, again, were very flavorful... linguine with clams, trout, and Branzino Style white fish... amazing!
Lola, who was our server/adviser for the evening is wonderful, very engaging, funny, amiable and wonderfully professional... attentive but not intrusive...
There was no rushing us out of the door and we enjoyed a great evening.
Well worth the visit - just do it! You won't regret it...

Pink Door is one of my favorite date places in Seattle. The Puget sound view from this restaurant is mesmerizing. There are good vegetarian options and the vegetarian Lasagne was my favorite. Their live music is amazing. I have visited this place before and it never disappoints.
