    Deciddd to try eating dinner considering how good brunch is but everything we had left us unimpressed/disappointed. My boyfriend had the risotto which had no seasoning. Everything else was just ok.

    Delicious and on point! Shared the NY steak and halibut dishes, everything was amazing even the pea puree that I was not expecting to be so divine. Wish their vodka well was not Gordons, since Sky or Smirnoff would make more sense for a restraunt of that quality, but when upgraded the cocktail was fabulous. Especially when a cocktail is paired with oysters to start the meal. So yummy! Sweet service and attentive but not overly bothersom but aware. Will return as soon as possible and hopefully get in for a brunch.

    My favorite restaurant in Seattle! The food is always fabulous, and the atmosphere reminds one of an intimate neighborhood restaurant in Italy or France. Every dish I’ve had at this gem was delicious and perfectly prepared. They make ketchup from scratch!

    The food is great, it is a place where I would definitely want to revisit. They are severely short of people and we had to wait for more than 20 minutes to get anyone to even take orders. After that, they expect people to move on after meal because another party is waiting for that table. Well just take the food orders faster, maybe that will help.

    Went here for brunch with the family because our hotel was right across the street. Delicious, freshly prepared breakfast in a cozy little place. Very good coffee and attentive service. Would go again and again if I would live in Seattle
