We went to the 5:00 seating and felt very safe. The food was terrific and service safe and attentive. The appetizers were superb and generous. Keep this place in business, we highly recommend them.

Stunningly good food, everything exquisitely prepared. Unpretentious and pleasant modern space, very quiet, especially good for couples. Ambiance a bit library-like at the moment, but that's because of the plague. Very mindful and cheery staff.

The rest are just totally geared now to take out for the time being. That’s why I only give it a four-star at this time.

Enjoyed a tasty and elegant dinner with my boyfriend to celebrate his birthday! Vendemmia does a good job with following COVID safety practices.

It was a little chilly inside because the window was open, I think to keep fresh air coming in so it’s understandable, but it does make the ambience less romantic and cozy. Just bring a cardigan!

Per usual Vendemmia exceeded our high expectations. They knocked it out of the park tonight. Hamachi, Burrata with stone fruit, green beans, ridiculously good pasta as always, and flank steak. No room for dessert but our best experience there yet!

We eat periodically at Vendemmia and it's always a great and interesting meal. We haven't been since COVID. Food was good as always. Snap peas with crab and a great pasta dish made for an enjoyable evening.

Appreciate all they are doing in response to Covid. Just hard to have a great ambience and service during this time. The server seemed super skittish (understandable!) but kind of defeats the enjoyment of eating in a restaurant, might as well get takeout.

Great food, as always. Had a well-mixed summer cocktail that hit the spot, and the wines were very nice. Service was friendly and prompt.

Spacing is appropriate for the times, but it certainly is more fun with a packed house. Keep supporting so we don't lose this place; they are offering food to go for those who don't feel safe eating out.

The food at Vendemmia is outstanding that said as we know these are crazy times we felt unwelcome. My husband and I had date night and we were out in less than an hour.
Honestly, restaurants need to decide if they really want to be open. We followed all the rules and yet it was uncomfortable.

Always good, and menu is updated quite frequently to take advantage of seasonal items. This is a "go to" spot for me, and I have had only one meal here (in dozens of visits) that has not been terrific. Menu is not extensive but offers some really good stuff! Remains a local favorite.

Vendemmia is the cutest spot for a great dinner in Seattle. Service was quick and attentive and the ambience was lovely. Open kitchen concept allows for a very open feel and it is fun to watch the chefs create before you get to enjoy. Host, Katie, was very sweet and helpful with menu options ! Definitely will be coming back. Also check out fish market connected to it during the day for great tacos.

Great little Bistro. The restaurant fell a bit in quality last year but now it is back up to par. Still a little pricey for what you get but a lovely dining experience.

I had a not-great experience a few months ago and posted accordingly. This time, the place was as I remembered it. The difference is that there were servers that were familiar. I wonder if the new staff that has been hired on are just not up to par? Anyway, food and wine were great as was service.

Outstanding food! The menu constantly changes so I am not sure what will be available in what form any given time, but the crab with snap peas, burrata with hazelnuts and tomatoes, and the bucatini were all top tier winners. I suggest getting an order of bread to go with your pasta because the sauce is amazing and you'll want to sop it all up.

I like it so much I already made new reservations for some friends coming into town in a week.

Service was top notch and every dish served was absolutely delicious. Our group of four enjoyed sharing bites from each other’s plates. Drinks from the bar were perfect. We had a special request and it was gladly accommodated without hesitation. We all raved about the food on our way out of the restaurant have the intention to return again very soon.

Service was much too long -- 45 min from end of appetizer to entree presentation. The appetizers were excellent, especially the broccoli, and the risotto special was great, but two pasta dishes were a) overpowering in flavor and b) pasta underdone, not even at al dente stage. Our first time and we were looking forward to it based on reviews and friends' advice, and have had great meals at Raccolto (same owners), but were quite disappointed overall.

The ambience and service were excellent. The pasta was good, but a bit salty. The fish portion was tiny (less than 3 oz, I'd say) and it was a replacement for the scallops that they were out of. It was about 3oz of halibut on a bed of leeks for $32, not what I would expect at all. So, go for the pasta and the red meat but skip the fish.
