My husband and I had the best time. We loved everything we ate. I am in awe of atmosphere and the culinary. Not one bit disappointed. 37 years in business and there is no sign outside to show people how to get in. That tells you how good this restaurant is. Bravo.

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!!

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.

We really enjoyed our experience at The Pink Door for food, the unique entertainment on the weekend evenings, and Ambiance. Our service was not especially attentive or friendly, but was reasonable. It would have also been better to book or request a table in the lounge area since we were interested in seeing the performance without having to stand on the staircase. Our table by the window overlooking the water was amazing.

Loved this restaurant, and exceeded our expectations for food, service, and ambiance. We had a window table overlooking the sound, our server made great recommendations, and was just the right amount of attentive. Penn Cove mussels and clams were delicious, as well as the Neah Bay salmon. We'll be back again.

We had a fabulous time celebrating our daughter at the beautiful Pink Door.
Our server Lou was personable and funny, willing to take the occasional photo too.
The food was delicious and the menu varied enough to attend to all our needs ( daughter vegetarian.)
The view was magical and the ambiance was warm and inviting.
We will be returning soon!
Thankyou

The Pink Door never disappoints! Even if you can't sit outside, it's so cute inside. Great for any occasion, really. The food, though, is good good. Didn't try the wine, but list looks extensive. They change their menu every 3 months, so go often.

Every time I dine at Pink Door I think it can’t get better. Whenever my friend visits from out of town and his mom stays in Seattle to visit with him I take a week day off we do lunch at here. We arrived about 20 minutes early our noon reservation but were still seated immediately outside as requested. If you haven’t dine outside at Pink Door it’s a must. We had a wonderful leisurely lunch with excellent service. We shared the tuna crudo as an appetizer so refreshing the citrus of the orange paired so beautifully with the tuna. My friend had the lasagna which os a very generous serving he ended up taking half of it home. His mom had the clam linguini she us unable to eat garlic due to health reasons and they easily accommodated. I had the Springtime Risotto sometimes it can be prepared to rich this was perfect and didn’t feel heavy at all the Dungeness crab was quite a treat and the fresh corn added texture and brightness to the dish. Can’t wait to dine here again soon

Good food, great service. Was a bit disappointed that the fish of the day was scallops, rather than a whole fish. The Bruschetta was excellent with fresh tomato slices and basil on cibatta. We also had meatballs and fresh baby carrots which were wonderful. The risotto topped with a small amount of crabmeat, was mixed with golden corn, which detracted from the dish. So while tasty, I would not order again as it was more creamed corn, than risotto. The view from the dining room overlooking Pike Market was lovely. The service from the time we arrived to when we left was excellent. I recommend this restaurant, but make sure you understand how the dishes are prepared.
