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.

I'm not normally a huge fan of italian, but this place was absolutely amazing without breaking the bank. As soon as I heard the lasagna was the owner's grandmother's recipe and had been on the menu since the 80's, I had to try it. No regrets on that one. My sister had the clam linguine and was treated to a bowl that looked like it was just full of clams. She had to dig through them to find the pasta. Also amazing.

Fantastic food! Great lasagna, great vegan dish. We will be back. We went once before and the pappardelle was great.

I doubt will go at night because I've heard complaints that the "entertainment" is political and it becomes unpleasant.

Always a shame when a restaurant allows comedians to alienate half their diners....

I came for a birthday celebration. We had the lasagna and cioppino. Both were excellent. We sat in the bar on Monday to see the aerialist. We were able to see two performances over the course of an hour. They were definitely a draw, however they were a bit short. Overall a very fun experience with great service and great food and a great show if you were able to catch it. Almost hard to find, there is no sign just a Pink door in post alley.

Decided to go out and do something new with a friend, I heard so many good things about this place so we went here. I made sure to make a reservation 2 weeks in advance. You would think that a reservation 2 weeks in advance would give us a nice table and all, it didn’t. We had an awkward table and were seated away from the pretty view. The place is beautiful overall, just didn’t get to really appreciate it all that much. The food was alright and the service was awful. Our waitress was never around and our glasses were always empty. Personally wouldn’t go again.

Really enjoyed my first dinner @the Pink Door. The entire experience, from checking in through dessert, was outstanding. I was pleasantly surprised by the fun and eclectic dining room. Our server was amazing. He was very knowledgeable about the menu, had great recommendations, and was super friendly. The menu has both classics and in season options. Food was fantastic.

We discovered the Pink Door several years ago and had a great experience, so looked forward to dining there again. Finally made it back and were pleasantly surprised to see that they had expanded into the adjacent space so there's much more seating available...and now with views of the water beyond the Market. Very nice environs, good service, good food, will go again!
