A Note about Spring Reservations:

LUNCH: Can't find what you're looking for?  We DO release additional reservations the DAY OF!  This is for those that are local, spontaneous, maybe a quick business lunch or just in the neighborhood. DAY OF reservations are typically seated in our view Dining Room, but feel free to make a request and we will do our best to accommodate you.

DINNER: Spring Dinner Reservations are seated in our Inside View Dining Room due to cool spring evenings… But if you prefer outdoor dining (and it’s early in the evening) make a note and we will do our best.

FULL OUTDOOR RESERVATION AVAILABILITY BEGINS IN JULY

The Pink Door is an independently owned (never cloned, never genetically modified) restaurant that has been quietly dedicated to fresh & local Italian food since 1981. Its seafood & produce driven menu has been the central theme throughout its wildly popular domain in Seattle's Pike Place Market.

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.

There were four spiders at the table we were sat at and I noticed them just as we finished our appetizer. The spiders were nearly crawling on me and I have a bad phobia of spiders. I stood up to find the server for 5 minutes and finally had to go find her. Then she made us stand in the middle of the restaurant and someone else came and told us there wouldn’t be any seats for us anytime soon. We sat ourselves at a table in the bar area. The server had a very bad attitude and didn’t even so much as ask how she could make our experience better. She instead made us feel like we were such an inconvenience to her for asking to move. Service is terrible at this restaurant.

This was an amazing experience and the food was awesome. Sat in the bar area and the bartender was awesome and so was the service. We are an older couple and were enjoying ourselves UNTIL the young manager came by and inquired if things were okay....basically insinuating that she thought we were fighting. We told her yes that we were having fun and she told me that was fine but she also told me to be civil. Being chastised by a presumptuous twenty something year old in a brutal way left a bad taste in my mouth!

The food is fine but I do not see how it has over 4000 good reviews in yelp and I waited for almost one month to get the seat. The interior design is great and vibes was nice. But really, I do not see their food is above the average with this price range $40/person. So if you are coming for food, not worth of the waiting.

Make reservations to get best table. Portions are generous, even if you pay for the split plate fee you will be ahead. We split salad, entree and appetizer and were very full. Service is done with precision, very skilled and confident staff. Five stars for chef and staff.

The Pink Door has been one of my favorite restaurants for over 25 years. However, at our last visit we noticed that things have changed. What used to be a smart, funky, relaxing place to have a great meal has turned in to an upscale Applebees. Overstuffed strollers were sitting next to tables as parents kept getting up and returning to attend to fussy babies. Children spilled drinks on the floor and parents left it to the wait staff to clean up. The new addition is beautiful, but the extra space also seems to have created a less intimate feel and experience, which we always loved about the Pink Door. Thank goodness the food is still as delicious as ever, but we did leave disappointed, wondering if our experience was a sign of change, or just a bad night.

So so so good! My husband and I took his mother for a little mother’s day lunch and lucked out without door seating. The view was beautiful! She has a few dietary restrictions but our waitress had great recommendations for her. My husband and I have had dinner here before and happy to say the food did not disappoint. Love it here.

Not many menu choices - I had spinach lasagne which was good but wished for some sausage or more flavor with spices. Husband ordered ziti with meatballs - pretty standard fare but pricey at $19. Appetizer of roasted garlic for $14 only had three very small pieces of dry, tough bread (not toasted or fresh) and small amount of spreadable cheese that tasted like cottage cheese - I don’t recommend it. Atmosphere is fun, but don’t expect great food.

One of the best places to eat in Seattle. Varied selection (not just pastas). Crafty cocktails in a romantic setting with a lovely aerialist show in the bar area. If you snag a table in the back you get a view of the Duwamish and a fabulous sunset. NOT TO BE MISSED if you're visiting the market.

Loved the Branzino and the arancini were perfect.... best I’ve had outside of Italy. Our waiter didn’t get my wine right although he said it was rose’ it definitely was not. It was a dry white. Also it shouldn’t be considered odd to ask for a fresh fork for fish after you’ve used one for tomato based antipasti. It’s a lovely restaurant not a diner and the wait staff should automatically change the cutlery . The bread is amazing... chewey and perfect . We had a window table which was nice for our birthday celebration .
