                                                      Very busy spot but it is a tourist trap. Overly priced average at best Italian dishes. The wait staff where attentive. Had the lasagna, small portion and not very flavorful. Ordered the meatballs, they where tough and dry. Cesar salad was the best part of the meal.

                                                      I had a lovely lunch with my son. It was his first time at the Pink Door. He enjoyed the food. Thank you for a memorable experience with my son.

                                                      The best halibut entree I have ever had, and I'm in the fish business! I'm hoping they'll share the recipe.

                                                      Everything was wonderful at the restaurant. My husband and I dined here three years ago while in Seattle and just had to return. Our dining experience was better than perfect. Our server, Lexie, was AMAZING and should be commended for the superior service we received. The decor was unique and our food was so delicious. Both my husband and I ordered their specialty, the bolognese, which was the BEST we have ever had, anywhere. The dish, which had the most luscious meat sauce and wide homemade noodles, melted in our mouths. When in Seattle, this is a restaurant you should not miss. You will LOVE it! You have to go up a street across from Pike's Market (Post Alley?) and look for a metal pink door. There isn't a sign outside with the restaurant's name on it; you just have to know where it is. If you can't find it, ask a resident. Also, make your reservation at least a few weeks in advance. The place is always packed to the hilt. The prices are somewhat high, but believe me, what you pay is worth every penny.

                                                      Food was amazing! Rockfish was absolutely delicious and the clam linguine was the best we've had since being in Italy. Food portions were good and we were stuffed. Ahi Tuna Crudo and everything green salad were both refreshing. Olive oil served with bread was a good quality oil. Highly recommend this place! Pride in food and service evident.

                                                      Very nice sitting at the bar and the service there was wonderful. I made a reservation over a month in advance but upon arriving they could only seat us in the lounge or bar area. Very disappointing. The ahi crudo was fantastic and well as the green salad. Unfortunately the fish of the day, Halibut, was a bit on the dry side. The flavors were lovely. We will return and hope to have better seating next time.

                                                      Excellent good, great ambience and views. Service was good but could have been more attentive & prompt. Am guessing the surge in guests post-COVID might have slowed them down.

                                                      We had Roasted Beet Ravioli and the famous Pink Door Lasagna. They were both delicious. Must have. Followed by tiramisu. Yummmm!!! All the dishes were light and sooo flavourful. Usually Italian food just gets too heavy very soon but we scraped our plates to completion this time :D my pink door mocktail was also interesting. Thank you!

                                                      Such an amazing ambience nothing you would be expecting. The food is very expensive and just alright!! The value was a little over rated for the price!! Add a little herbs to the olive oil for the bread even that would make a huge difference!!

                                                      We had a reservation but didn’t get seated until 25 minutes later. We specifically went there for the ambiance and entertainment but never got to hear any music or see a performance. The food was amazing and so were the drinks. Our server was fantastic. By far one of the best I’ve ever had. Just a little disappointed in bringing people from out of town to see this unique Seattle place but not getting the full experience. Other then that, it was great.

                                                      We have eaten at Pink Door many times. While it is still good it wasn't great- We had a very nice table at the window that I had requested which was very nice. Our waitress was training someone, she was friendly however we had to ask for water several times, we ordered a drink and entree. The tables are very close to one another and our glasses were at the end of the table empty- pretty obvious.. The portions have definitely gotten smaller. The service just wasn't at par nor the food as in the past. It was enjoyable however we will try some other restaurants, but will return one day.

                                                      I brought my wife, mother in law and my daughter over for a morther's day dinner. They absolutely loved the food and atmosphere. The lady who served us was very friendly and more than accommodating to some of our requests. Pink door is an old institution of Seattle and knowing that it has been around the 80's warms my heart. I wholeheartedly recommend this place.

                                                      Never disappoints (although no patio dining due to PNW weather). Aracini was marvelous, halibut perfect and a fun cocktail. Great way to start off Mother’s Day weekend.

                                                      Overall great experience. Food was great, drinks could be better. Kind of loud to us but it is in a very touristy area. We’ll be definitely going back. For the best views reservations are highly recommended.

                                                      I had not been for 14 years, but had the food on a pedestal and it exceeded my memory and expectations. The service was excellent and the ambiance is so lovely and unique. I certainly will not wait 14 years to visit again.

                                                      Tries too hard to be “trendy”. Would have preferred plain old iced tea rather than something that tasted like I swallowed a florist.

                                                      The Pink Door was a great Seattle surprise which we had never been to before. This was our 4th trip to Seattle, and we are glad that we decided to give it a try. The service was very good- polite , friendly and attentive server. Our dinners were delicious. On our 1st visit, I enjoyed the linguine w/ clams. So much so that I ordered it again on our 2nd visit. Loved it again! My husband had the bolognese the 1st night and the lasagne plus an order of meatballs the 2nd night. They were all wonderful. Even the garlic bread we ordered was exceptional! The live music was an added bonus! We will definitely return if we ever visit Seattle in the future.
