We had an early evening reservation for 4 recently on a Saturday. The two people joining us are very special people to us and so wanted to make sure that we had no less than a pleasant experience and not only were we all together hosted beautifully, the food and service went above and beyond our expectations. To the point that our guests who had never been before are still talking about it. I had the ragou, our guests had the steak and chicken and my husband had the pork chop and all the dishes were raved about.
If you are looking for a quiet yet memorable experience or even just a great cocktail, you'll find it here. Well done Jill and crew! Bon appetit! J&R Manning

Everything was pretty good! I went during the lunch hour so it was fairly loud & hard to have a conversation but that’s probably true of just about any place during that hour. Would definitely go again.

Our server Kerri was amazing, with a great knowledge of the menu including the wine list. We shared the octopus fried rice, gem wedge salad, and the daily special duck confit. Except for the salad being somewhat overdressed, the food was excellent. Will definitely return!

Lecosho is a favorite of mine and my wife. I won't try to describe this last delicious meal there but will just say that we have never, ever been disappointed with any aspect of dining at Lecosho during our ten or so visits there over the last few years. Excellent food, excellent service, nice space. Lecosho is very, very consistent in the high quality of their food and service. Looking forward to returning.

My wife and I had been Lecosho several times for Happy Hour, but this was the first time we had been for dinner. It was amazing. We kind of go wild when we attack a new menu for the first time so we got 6 small plates/sides and split one entree (they make it very easy to split almost anything on the menu).

The real standout was the Spanish Octopus Fried Rice, which is hands down the best fried rice I've had in Seattle. I'd go back just for that. The smoked duck was also terrific.

Their menu changes often, so what is on their website is merely an example of what they serve, but so far everything we've had their has been wonderful.

Finally, of the four times we've been, the staff has always been extremely courteous and going above and beyond to be helpful in numerous ways. This has quickly moved into our top three favorite restaurants near the Market.

I've eaten here before. It's always good. On this one occasion, it was quite busy. I had taken my mom there for lunch. Our lunch entrees were taking a long time. Our server, Katie, apologized for the delay and indicated that lunch was on the house. We appreciated that the staff took care of us, acknowledged that we'd been waiting a while and still served delicious food. Thanks, Lecosho.

Lecosho has a great atmosphere and good service. My fellow diners had heard the burger was good and ordered one to share, they were not disappointed. I ordered the seafood stew for $20. It consisted of 2 shrimp, one small piece of whitefish, 6-8 tiny clams, one sliced fingerling potato with small pieces of chorizo in a bland broth. It is very rare for me to walk away from a meal hungry, often I don't even finish. I am a big fan of fish stews and this was by far the most flavorless, fishless stew I have ever eaten at a restaurant. On the bright side, the fish was fresh. I would go again but definitely not order the same thing.

Good food but not $100 dinner we just split a salad and each had a pasta and a glass of wine. I’ve done much better for 100 bucks. The sauce on my pasta was delicious but I think they were five pieces of it? Holy smokes how expensive is pasta?

I always recommend Lecosho to friends. My experience is always fabulous. The food has never been less than delicious. I still crave the pumpkin soup you once served, but am never disappointed with the newest selections during every visit. And we always, ALWAYS appreciate when asked if we will be attending a play or any event so they know we are on a schedule. Please keep up the great food and great service. I'l be back again. With friends in tow, as usual!

New Year’s Eve dinner, early time to beat the crowd.
Food overall was good but heavy on salt. This is coming from someone who loves salt.
Smoked duck was definitely high on smoky flavor but pairing with Lardo made it too heavy/greasy; it needed something to lighten it up. Loved the wait staff recommendation for the pork chop and ragu pasta, both on regular menu. Staff may need to help diners chose their wines to pair with food, helps enhance the experience.

I’ve just about given up on downtown restaurants with their tourist prices, abysmal service and meh food. Lecosho was a pleasant surprise. We got a corner table — maybe because we bothered to reserve? Service was unobtrusive and thoughtful. The mushroom risotto was just a hair undercooked but not unpleasant. My guest, a picky eater, was happy with her scampi. I’ll be going back, for sure, especially if visiting out-of-towners want to meet up near SAM.

Our first time at Lecosho and we enjoyed it but not enough to make it back on a regular basis. Had an outstanding fried rice/octopus appetizer. Bride had beet salad—she said it was nothing special. Her entrée was the mezalunas which she felt had an almost too sweet sauce. I had the boar and beef ragu which I found a bit dry but still good. Finished with their fresh Madeleines which took forever. So long that our server comped them. Place is REALLY noisy. So noisy we could no hear our server most of the night.

Lecosho is just ok. The meals are fine, but the overall cost doesn’t make me rush back. For the dollars spent here, you could eat on the waterfront and have that experience.

Great meal as always. Also, my last visit there, I lost my (very special) bracelet. It was a loose fit, and when we returned home, I noticed it was no longer on my wrist. We live an hour drive from the restaurant. We had gone to a concert in Seattle after dinner at Lecosho, and I wasn't sure exactly where I had lost it. I thought the chances that I would find my bracelet were slim to none. I called Lecosho when we got home that night, and before I could get all of the words out of my mouth, the host said "as a matter of fact, we do have your bracelet!" He set it aside for the next time we came in to the restaurant, and we went back for lunch a week later. Got my beautiful bracelet back and had another great meal at Lecoshso! That is what I call "Above and Beyond"!

this is my 3rd time here...such a great option when going to a concert nearby. The staff was helpful but unobstrusive, with great recommendations for drinks, wine and food on the menu. Everything is delicious, the atmosphere is low-key (you can hear your dining partners without any problem), and I will definitely return
