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.

We had an amazing dinner (as usual); however, this was the first time we caught the Cabaret Show. We notified the hostess that we were interested in the wait list. The staff was amazing! They set us up right in the front row. Great show and great staff!

Great fun, old speakeasy vibe-wonderful food and service, outstanding view! Our only problem was finding it-GPS got us in neighborhood, had to ask 2 local security guards where it was (hint, look for the alley with the tables and lights above the PPMarket)!

The outside patio on a nice weather day is a fantastic place for lunch during a visit to Pike’s Place market. Right inside the market blocks, but you’d never know it in this secluded restaurant. Great food, service, and ambiance.

The reviews on this place are great. Its not terrible, but for the hype and price I was pretty disappointed. On the waiter's recommendation I tried the rigatoni, I can only assume that the noodles came from a box at Safeway. My partner and I each ordered a cocktail, they both tasted like scented soap.
The food was meh, I would have not been horribly disappointed if this is what I had gotten at Olive Garden, but there is a reason I didnt go to Olive Garden. The drinks were pretty terrible.

The Pink Door was absolutely incredible! It was a tad difficult to find but was a wonderful experience once we found our way. The interior was absolutely stunning and the food was top tier, high quality authentic Italian delicacies. The price range was average for a restaurant, ranging between the cheapest $5 appetizers and the more expensive almost $30 plates, but a quality far betond any other I have ever been to. Absolutely delicious, filling, and beautiful. Would 100% recommend for business meals, dates, or family outings. Wonderful!

This place was so amazing! There were so many things to choose from I had a hard time deciding. I went with Dungeness crab risotto and was not disappointed! My dad got the lasagna and my mom got the seared scallops. Everything was delicious! I will definitely go back my next time in Seattle.

Good food and atmosphere but our service was horrible, made us not want to go back. Server asked if we wanted an appetizer and we order one with him. When it had not showed up for 25 minutes and tables that sat down after us were getting their meals, we asked and he said he forgot. He never asked how we wanted the steak cooked. It showed up extremely rare and even after sending back it to make medium it was still on the rare side. He knew nothing about wine but at least he admitted that and brought out a tablet that gave a full description of each wine. At the end of dinner he put both the check and the then later the credit card receipt for signature in between my wife and my son's date when I was clearly the one paying. When we booked the reso on open door, it asked if this was a special occasion and I checked it was a birthday. My son's date also said something to the server when she stepped out for moment and nothing ever came of either request. I finally asked him at the table and he said, "We don't do that unless you want to buy one then I'll put a candle on it". Seriously, I drop nearly $200, get lousy service and then you can't pop for a scoop of ice cream or a cupcake? Management - Please train your staff on your time not my nickel and deliver a little something extra, especially when you botch the entire night. After we left, our conversation for 10 minutes was how the evening was a disaster from a service standpoint. Not the impression you want to give at Pink Door one would think.
