Wann Japanese Izakaya
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 absolutely enjoyed our first visit to Wann. We will definitely come back again, and hopefully soon! Food was delicious and our server was attentive and a delight to chat with.
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.
Value was great- went during happy hour and ate for less than $25
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.
Sushi was a little slow as sometimes happens when the sushi bar gets backed up. Service was fantastic
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.
We were on vacation and just took a chance on a local restaurant. It was great! Great happy hour prices. Food was tasty.
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.
Delicious food good atmosphere overall a great experience
Great service and great sushi.
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.
Excellent service and selections for dinner. HH is fabulous and so close to the theater its wonderful!
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.
The food was just okay, the service was very slow, and the menu was typical prices for Seattle. This is not a place I would recommend to friends.
Consistently good spot with an awesome happy hour. Excellent rolls, tempura, miso, sushi & sake. Very friendly, professional and excellent service.
Meh izakaya. Meh service. There's a bunch of better places with similar menus in Seattle. Go there instead.
It’s was great. Quiet Friday night. Perfect for a date. Will definitely go back.
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.
Pleasant surprise in the heart of Belltown
Our server was very friendly, and all of us were happy with the food! Overall a good evening.
The food and the atmosphere was a great fit for this little sushi restaurant. And the happy hour specials were great also!
Good happy hour menu, for both drinks and food; note that tea is per cup, not unlimited pots like Chinese restaurants. There are a few booths that are raised above the rest of the floor that I think are fun to sit in.
It's fine. The happy hour menu is a pretty good deal. The "Okay" public health rating needs to be worked on. We had an event nearby, but I would NOT make a trip here otherwise.
Solid business lunch when on a budget
Excellent dining experience! Loved the food, lots of great happy hour choices too. Service was fabulous, food was tasty and fast!
My partner and I had dinner on Valentine's day. The menu was Prix fixe and included 7 courses, some of which is on the regular menu. The tuna tataki was delicious. As was the ebi in spicy sauce.
Excellent Happy Hour! Friendly staff, good vibe and not too loud. The food was delicious as well - specialty roll was worth the $$. Shrimp dumplings were tasty and the miso is yummy. We will definitely be back!
This should not be called an izakya restaurant, it's nothing like an izakaya in Japan. It's just another mediocre Japanese place. Sorry I just wasn't impressed with anything. Food, service. Ambiance. Nothing
Squid Robata was completely burnt. Manager was rude when we asked for enough ponzu for everyone at the table. Our party included children and they put us in a dark area around the corner from the main restaurant that seemed as if it wasn’t in use anymore. Waitress was very nice but other than that we did not have a good experience.
This is a lovely place to grab a pre/post-theatre performance meal. The happy hour menu is generous (lots of choices) and the service was excellent. Dishes were the right size to split between two people and the food wasn't too heavy (more "snacks" that are filling than actual solid "meal"). It was a great place to hang out and have a conversation over drinks and food.
The happy hour prices were great and the food was good
Had reserved for 8pm. Arrived early. No hostess. Place looked empty A group of strange people dressed in strange costumes were filtering in.
A girl finally walked by. She said she would find someone. Another 10 min hostess finally She talked to 2 girls who just arrived. I told her I had a reservation..it was now 820pm. She said we would be seated behind the walkin groups of 6 and 2.
I showed my confirmation. She said we would be seated behind the walkins It would be at least 30 min. Had taken a cab there...not impressed. She said she could recommend 2 other Japanese places. I had already tried them . Nothing until 915. It was obvious she knew the strange party of 6 some of whom were now necking! We went to Japonessa. BEST!!!!
We appreciated servers being very attentive and friendly.
Food was very salty i.e. roll, ramen. Rice was mushy and doughy.
We met some friends from Seattle here and had an absolutely wonderful meal. Every item we ordered was delicious. You can't go wrong at this place. And the prices were quite reasonable as well,
