  • Space Needle

    4 out of 5 stars

    Seattle Restaurants

    SkyCity is open for lunch, dinner, and Saturday and Sunday brunch. Since I couldn't go for lunch and didn't want to waste a Saturday or Sunday on the Space Needle, I had dinner. The main draw for me was: "As always, your elevator ride and Observation Deck access are complimentary when dining at SkyCity." At that time the ride up was $6.00. Now it...

  • Amy's on the Bay

    Port Orchard Restaurants

    The whole experience is one to savour. Amy's on the Bay overlooks Bremerton and Sinclair Inlet, giving a lovely evening view over the water. The ambience is so enjoyable and there is no doubt about the nautical feel of the place. The food is undoubtedly the main attraction of Amy's, however the whole package makes is a superb dining experience....

  • Seafood Restaurants

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Seattle Restaurants

    Known for their huge servings, the Crab Pot restaurant sits on the water overlooking the bay & harbor. Just down from the Seattle aquarium, it is what you think of when you think Seattle seafood. Wait staff bring your order to your table and dump the contents of a huge bucket of seafood on the table accompanied by wooden mallets and a board to...

  • El Sombrero Mexican Restaurant

    Port Orchard Restaurants

    I have eaten at El Sombrero for many years without complaint. Today, however, I killed 8 fruit flies while eating my meal. I saw countless others flying around near our table. The large tub of salsa was left uncovered on the counter. It was disgusting. When I brought the issue to the attention of the server, she said, "Oh, I know. We always have...

  • Ivar's

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Seattle Restaurants

    Ivar Haglund opened his first "fish bar" in 1938. Ivar's was so successful that there are now more than 25 "fish bar" locations in the Pacific Northwest and plus another 3 full service restaurants which have variants of the Ivar's name. On a beautiful afternoon in Seattle, we had taken the free downtown bus to Pioneer Square, after which we...

  • Pub / Brewery

    4 out of 5 stars

    Seattle Restaurants

    The food was unique! I love trying new foods and this restaurant definitely had a huge mix of new! The atmosphere was fabulous, a tad dark in there but comfortable and fun. The view is looking from inside a historic building into other historic buildings. The interior definitely frames the building's character nicely. I tried a pizza with asparagus...

  • Anthony's Restaurant

    4 out of 5 stars

    Seattle Restaurants

    This is a great family restaurant! The exterior and interior theme is beach-there is a sand box outside for the kids to play in and all kinds of sea stuff hanging from the ceiling and walls. The view is beautiful....you can watch the ferries cross the Sound into and out of Edmonds and the marina loaded with a variety of sized sailboats sits around...

  • Salty's

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Seattle Restaurants

    First off I want to say that Salty's has excellent food, and that the service provided to our group of VirtualTourist members during the Seattle Worldmeet in 2012 was wonderful, right down to allowing us to occupy some of the prime real estate in the restaurant before some of the group arrived, as otherwise there is no way to reserve a specific...

  • Cafes

    4 out of 5 stars

    Seattle Restaurants

    While the first thing that catches your eye when you walk into Specialty's is the very attractive sweets in the display counter, their primary business is lunch for the surrounding office buildings. Many of the offerings here are soups and salads, and they have a reputation of being very good. This is a rather unique concept, as they can be very...

  • Chinese / Japanese Cuisine

    4 out of 5 stars

    Seattle Restaurants

    The "International District" as it is called is the old part of town where Asian immigrants from all over eastern Asia once came to do business, get their family associations settled, look for work, eat, and even arrange marriages. In recent days, there has been an effort to try to convert the "International District" to more of a tourist area,...

  • Mexican Cuisine

    4 out of 5 stars

    Seattle Restaurants

    While it is a chain of restaurants, it should be noted this is a small, local chain of restaurants. There are currently only four in the Seattle area. The stated goal of the South Lake Union restaurant was to be a modern and urban, but at the same time keep a neighborhood feel that the rest of their restaurants have. They seem to have succeeded...

  • Italian Cuisine

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Seattle Restaurants

    This restaurant was recommended by other VT correspondents. I went to this restaurant for dinner last summer in August 2005. The food was excellent. I had the seafood pasta-amazing, and the kids had the lobster ravioli. We liked the food so much that we went back the next day for lunch before we left Seattle. We will definitely come back to this...

  • Steak / Grill Houses

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Seattle Restaurants

    Some years back, a Portland, Oregon restauranteer that frequently was asked in helping out start up other restaurants was doing an interview with the Oregonian newspaper. One of the questions was "What is the most difficult decision new restaurant owners face that you tell them?" The answer had to do with reducing the size of the menu. They said...

  • Wild Ginger

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Seattle Restaurants

    This has got to be the biggest Asian restaurant Ive ever been to...and WOW was it worth it! On busy 3rd Avenue this swinging place was packed to the gills with locals and where there were no more free tables they sat at the bars and ate! After checking in with the reception we found a small lean to table with high stools for our customary cocktail...

  • Pan-Asian and Pacific Rim Cuisine

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Seattle Restaurants

    Once you pass under Interstate 5, the nature of the International District changes. This area is more a traditional working poor Asian community rather than tourist center. However, this also means that it has the economical and still excellent Asian cooking that some would like to find. Pho Bac is one of the more eccentric of these locations, as...

  • Burger Houses

    4 out of 5 stars

    Seattle Restaurants

    Big Food is regarded by some of those I have talked to as being one of the better food trucks in Seattle. However, they also have a location inside the Armory Building in the Seattle Center. The location here is fairly easy to find: it is on the north side of the building near the entrance doors. It is also easy to find because it is the only such...

    Seattle Restaurants

    In Seattle, the biggest name in coffee, is the internationally known "Starbucks".But after many visits to the Pacific North West, I have come to learn that there is one with a name BIGGER than Starbucks.(or star yucks as I choose to call it) BIGFOOT JAVA,with locations from Puyallup to Bothell, gives Starbucks a run for the beans! The taste and...

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Seattle Restaurants

    With multiple locations throughout the city, Pagliacci is everywhere. The pizzerias are casual affairs, ordering at the counter from one of a half dozen pizzas of the day. Most are standbys, but a few are more complicated and interesting. Buy by the slice or by the pie, and sit back to enjoy in the funky atmosphere of the place. Delivery is also...

  • Dick's Drive-In

    4 out of 5 stars

    Seattle Restaurants

    This isn't fast food, it might seem like a tourist trap but i've been eating at Dicks all my life, it's always been good and it always will be. With practically everything on the menu under a $1 it's a unusual experience and all of the Dick's in Seattle are drive in 's except for the one downtown. The special is great and the milk shakes.

  • Thai Cuisine

    4 out of 5 stars

    Seattle Restaurants

    Here you will find quite a variety of Asian (while I am no Asian food expert, most of them appear to be Thai inspired, though there are a few that fall into the "Pan-Asian" category too.) dishes that will satisfy a number of tastes. There is a bar with a reasonably good selection of drinks available. There is some outdoor seating available,...

  • The Fishermen's Restaurant & Bar

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Seattle Restaurants

    When you go to the Fisherman's Restaurant and Bar, make sure to choose the tables outside- not only you have a view of the Puget Sound with the ferries come and go but you can also watch the Great Ferry's Wheel as it picks up its passengers. We came here just to rest after our Harbor Cruise but ended up ordering some fish and chips! The salmon was...

  • Ray's Boathouse

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Seattle Restaurants

    This is a must when in Seattle. A wonderful ambiance overlooking the Sound. You might even be able to snag a table outside if you're lucky. The service is over the top. Rely on the wait staff to steer you in the right direction. You won't be disappointed with the specials. I had the Sablefish and it was marvelous! You will have to deal with a few...

  • 13 Coins Restaurant

    4 out of 5 stars

    Seattle Restaurants

    13 Coins has been a Seattle landmark since 1967. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner 24 hours a day, every day. They are best known for their exhibition-style cooking, large high-back leather private booths, and exceptionally large portions. They cater to anyone who appreciates gourmet cuisine and exceptional service. I had the New York Steak...

  • French Cuisine

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Seattle Restaurants

    Calling Toulouse Petit Kitchen and Lounge "French" is taking the term a little loosely. The decorations inside are certainly meant to appear as though it has been taken right out of France, and so is most of the food. The noise level, waiting line and crowded conditions are more likely to have people thinking of Italy I would think, however. In...

  • Etta's Seafood

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Seattle Restaurants

    This is primarily a seafood restaurant, and I have been there before for dinner, and it was good. But, they have a great brunch on the weekends! (Saturday, too - not just Sunday.) The restaurant has a nice ambience and an excellent wait staff, and it's proximity to the Market makes it easy for visitors to find. I had Huevos Rancheros, which were...

  • Paseo Caribbean Restaurant

    5 out of 5 stars

    Seattle Restaurants

    OMG. Get yourself out to Fremont and try a Cuban Roast from Paseo. Do not let the long line scare you off - it is worth the wait. Melt in your mouth pork slathered in garlic aioli and other ingredients, all served on perfectly toasted bread. The pickled jalapenos add a kick that in my opinion makes the sandwich.

  • The Crumpet Shop

    5 out of 5 stars

    Seattle Restaurants

    This is a wonderful place selling tea, crumpets, scones, and more. They have a range of similar breakfast-like items, but not just at breakfast time. The main reason to go here, though, is the endless flow of good, hot tea and the wonderful crumpets with many topping choices. Crumpets, of course, are not readily found in this country and it's...

    Though I do love Starbucks' regular coffee that is made up with hazelnut flavored syrup, it is yet strange why Starbucks' does not actually brew hazelnut ground coffee? Or french vanilla ground coffee for that matter? Thank to a friend I recently learned about a company in Germany that does provids french vanilla (or hazelnut) ground coffee. Two...

    The Phoenix Vietnamese Restaurant was another great local place our friends in Seattle brought us to. We love Vietnamese food and this little place was not a disappointment. It was very convenient, we could walk there right from their house. You are not likely to come here as a tourist but if staying north of the city or driving that way to...

Their food is well-presented on a sizzling plate with the beef fajita mixed with fresh vegetables (sweet onions, zucchinis and yellow squash) with...

    With so many seafood restaurants to choose from in Seattle, I decided on giving Cutters Bayhouse a chance....and I wasnt wrong! With Pike Street Market for a backdrop this was a truly special setting. As always we started with cocktails in the bar, while we watched the little sushi chef prepare his wares at the separate Sushi bar just inside the...

  • Belltown Pub and Cafe

    4 out of 5 stars

    Seattle Restaurants

    So, now this place is open again, called Belltown Bistro. It's part of a local chain that also owns the BluWater Bistro on Lake Union, in Greenlake, and in Leschi. Pretty good food, but I was hoping for an independent. The atmosphere has changed from the old pub, and it's now more restaurant/club. The menu is costlier, and they play foreground...

    Sure, we've all heard of & probably been to Starbucks. I know it originated in Seattle, but why not try something different? Seattle's Best Coffee is a great start. It's very well-known to the people of Seattle, but we don't have any where I live. It looks like according to their webpage they are expanding quite a bit. I really enjoyed their Chai...

  • Red Mill Burgers

    5 out of 5 stars

    Seattle Restaurants

    This is seriously THE best burger I have ever had, anywhere. Period. They use such fresh, top of the line ingredients and high quality meat that it makes just an incredible experience. They can be pretty busy so go off hours. There is one in Greenwood and one in Magnolia The double bacon deluxe with cheese.

    Caffe Minnies is open 24 hours, but I've only tried it at either very late after the clubs and bars close, or very very early in the morning (e.g. around 5 am). I asked the late night front desk person in the Westin downtown sometime around 3:30 4:00 am where I could grab a good breakfast, and she mentioned this place. Minnies has sort of a...

  • in honor of Bert Grant: Brewing Pioneer

    The idea of the brewpub, a place were beer is brewed and served with food, needs little explanation but in 1982, it was an entirely novel idea. Bert Grand did just this in a small town in eastern Washington State called Yakima. It was one of the first craft breweries in all the United States and heralded the coming of a new age of beer. Housed in a...
