About Wann Japanese Izakaya

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.

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.

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!!!!

I hadn't been here in years, so it was a very pleasant surprise to enjoy their happy hour menu. Too much, actually! The portions were incredibly generous for the price, a good range of sushi rolls, nigiri and sashimi -- as well as cooked food. Drinks weren't shabby either! The apple sake was tasty. Only bad thing is the garage next door. DON'T PARK THERE, no matter how tempting it is to be right next door. My car and several others were broken into -- and people who park under there told us it's not an uncommon occurrence. The smell alone should put you off.

I've had my share of Japanese food, both _in_ Japan and stateside, and I expect anything calling itself an "izakaya" to excel at a diversity of small(ish) plate cuisine and have a reasonable selection of credible sake. Good sushi is of course always a plus. Wann hits all the bases, serving up a great fusion of traditional foods and Northwest zest. The seating space is intriguingly diverse, including a glassed-in rock garden and private banquet rooms. It's a few block walk from Pike Place, but totally tractable and totally worth it.

A great small plates place. Go with a group for happy hour (all day Mondays and Tuesdays!) and you'll be able to fill up on a huge variety of tasty morsels. Both traditional Japanese and contemporary/fusion offerings. The decor is also a tasteful and imaginative blend of traditional and contemporary Japanese. Generously sized small plates, exceptionally good prices and attentive service. Interesting cocktails if you like that sort of thing (I don't) and a good selection of wines, sake and shochu. The only drawback is the Belltown lack of parking. Otherwise, a winner!

Terrible service. Ran out of seafood - in a sushi restaurant.... Told us would be 30 minutes before our entrée arrived. And then eventually mine arrived but my wife had to wait. Explaining to the waiter we would like to eat at the same time they took my food away, and then 30 seconds later a separate waiter brought it back, again without my wife's..... All in all - this place was a circus. We left at that point and went to a different restaurant

I was really pleasantly surprise with the menu. Everything was good and in good portion for a reasonable check.
Strongly recommend to try the Brie Tempura with Raspberry Soy Sauce.

The butabara (pork belly) skewer combined with nigori-sake was super awesome!
The servers were super nice as well. The place is great if you like Japanese izakaya food.

Place has a pretty good happy hour! During the weekday I would suggest going before or at 6:30 ish , any later than that, the restaurant get's super packed and ordering happy hour food could take a while! Overall not bad :)

I've been looking for a sushi restaurant that also has a romantic feel to it. Wann was just that. My boyfriend and I went here for our date night. I really liked that it was quiet and had lower lighting. The background music was nice too.
I had tempura udon - I enjoyed it and would come back to get it again. I also got a specialty roll, but can't remember which one it was. My only complaint is that the menu on their website didn't match the menu in the restaurant - the menu in the restaurant had a lot more options, but at the same time was missing some of the items I saw online. There was a roll on the online menu that I wanted to try, but it wasn't on the menu in the restaurant so I had to pick something else.

Great service, atmosphere, and food. I would go back to eat more of all that chargrilled goodness on a stick. I will say that the meatballs were so-so, I wouldn't bother with those.

Overall a great experience and I would go back. The happy hour menu is GREAT and is extended late by ending at 7PM so good for those who work late.It had wide variety and dinner and drinks for 3 people was under $40, which is AMAZING. Our Sushi rolls were among some of the better rolls I've had in Seattle. I also liked the seating.The service was friendly but left a little to be desired. there seemed to be some confusion over seating me for my reservation and I kind of got forgotten about while I waited. Once I was seated,the hostess said she'd bring water but didn't and our server didn't appear for another 15 mins. I was afraid we'd miss happy hour but they graciously let us make the HH order.

We were stunned at the value of the meal. 5 of us walked away not only fully satisfied but a little tipsy with a bill clocking in at under $30/person. If you're in Seattle, an absolute must.
