Japanese
An Izakaya is a common Japanese bar/restaurant that is often found in cosmopolitan areas for after-work relaxation and an opportunity to unwind after a busy day.
Izakaya restaurants all have a multi-faceted menu and offer many types of food such as sashimi, tempura and yakitori; all appetizing dishes which go well with the alcohol served such as beer, sake and shochu.
Due to the informal atmosphere, instead of ordering and eating individual platters, customers usually share all dishes with one another in their party.
While maintaining true to the Izakaya environment, WANN have brought class, sophistication and refinement to match the modern people of today.

We waited over half an hour for our food. Definitely not a good choice if you only have an hour long lunch break.

The service was a bit slow and the food was mediocre. The house cold saki had no flavor.

The service at Wann Izakaya was beyond amazing, my family and I had never been to this restaurant and our server was very understanding and helpful to show us what we really wanted to eat.

It was horrible service we were the only ones there and the lack of service was badd I ordered edamame which they forgot and then brought it to me in a plastic bag and still charged me for it. Second was that I ordered a banana tempera and minutes later stated srry where out of vanilla icecream and offered us another flavor and still had to pay full price for something they lack on having. I will not come back for awhile this is the 3 time I have an unpleasant stay.

Restaurant was empty when we arrived at a peak dining hour, which should have tipped us off. We were seated promptly but had to ask for cocktail menu. Ramen broth had an off, metallic taste. Octopus balls came out hot and were probably the best item on the menu. Sashimi was OK but a little too close to room temperature, making us concerned. Overall, the experience was lackluster, and at times we felt as if we were inconveniencing the aloof waitress. The bathrooms were filthy and there was one empty soap dispenser that looked as if it hadn’t been filled in quite some time. Terrible value for what we paid for. Would not recommend.

Bento Lunch at Wann is a fantastic deal - 8 or so options for the main protein (incl. sashimi, tempura, tonkatsu, salmon teriyaki, japanese fried chicken, etc.) plus salad and side dishes for $10.

Service was good, generally quiet restaurant, about 1/2 full when we were there at 1pm.

We enjoyed happy hour at Wann and it was a steal. Four large "small" plates and drinks for under $50. The octopus dumplings and grilled beef dishes were nicely seasoned and very tasty. The place has a chic kind of feel with jazz in the background and a sound level that made it easy to have a conversation. Service was good, but sometimes a bit over-attentive. But I can live with it given the quality of the food and location.

Very nice place and servers were very attentive but unfortunately sushi was so so and a little hastily made. It was restaurant week but not sure that should make a difference.

We had made an online reservation, and were seated immediately .We ordered bento box lunches, which were beautiful and very tasty. The food was well prepared and presented quickly during our weekday lunch. Detracting from these positive points were dirty eating utensils, dirty glassware, dirty windows, and failure of waitstaff to bring tea, etc as requested. Someone needs to get better eyeglasses and clean that place really well.

Popped in at the tail end of happy hour and enjoyed a real izakaya-like experience with the family, sharing 8-10 different bite-sized dishes between four people. It was an enjoyable meal and the server staff was on top of their game, dribbling out the dishes just in time as we finished the others.

No problem that we showed up early for our reservation. We were seated immediately. Service was perfect. Attentive and friendly, but not annoying. I love the happy hour menu and also the main menu variety and ordered too much food because the portions were larger than I expected. Loved everything. Can't wait to go back.

The food was amazing and the service was great. The only thing that would've improved it would have been something on the website letting me know there was a Valentine's day prix fixe before I made my reservation. I didn't find out until the day of. Even though it was good, it was unexpected.

Wann has great happy hour and a good selection. I brought my friends here for the first time and they enjoyed all the dishes. Our favorite thing was the fried eggplant in soy broth and the shrimp tempura roll. Would highly recommend and has more seating for happy hour than the other japanese place down the block.

Good happy hour selection and prices. Our waitress was great but the kitchen staff and server seemed to be very confused and they kept trying to bring us food that we didn't order. Then, they ended up missing one of our orders completely so we had to wait a long time to get our last roll. Our waitress was very kind and apologetic about it though.

This was the perfect dining experience for a birthday meal with my friends before going to the Moore Theater. The waitress was kind, delightful and very efficient. The menu was great and the price was excellent! I will definitely eat here again.

We arrived to restaurant and the staff seemed disorganized. At first we thought it was due to early evening and happy hour time. The floor in the bar area was sticky and it was not just in one area. We decided to only have an appetizer and a drink and then left instead of staying for dinner.

The sushi and tsukemono were pretty good, but the service was terrible! The food took forever and our server rarely checked in on us. They were out of one of the pieces I ordered, and didn’t let me know until my order arrived. I was afraid to order a replacement since it took an hour to arrive in the first place, and it wasn’t even that busy. I won’t go back; there are too many other good options for sushi in Seattle.

Relatively quiet on a Sunday night. Food was fast and well prepared. Tap list was short but covered all the bases. Great service in English and Japanese. Better than average izakaya if you're looking downtown.
