Celebrated new job with Friends had a lovely time
We enjoyed some nice and very interesting drinks that helped warm up the conversation by asking each other various ingredients and such... very useful;) and beyond that, the atmosphere and vibe is really cool and nice. I like the downstairs much more but the whole place is nice anyway. Enough that I may take another date there... so thanks guys!
Very cute place in a unusual small location, very cool entrance. Food is very nice!
Fun idea of ringing a door bell to enter. Friendly staff and good service but overall didn’t live up to my expectations. The small plate servings were minimal and didn’t warrant the price in taste. Ordered the steak tapas, tuna and lumpia. Tuna was high quality but tasted like it came out of a can. Lumpia, maybe I’m spoiled by my friend’s homemade version so the ones on the menu were not impressive.
Having plant-based Filipino food options made the experience great and inclusive and enjoyable to share with vegan friends. :-)
It’s silly that people had to wait out in the cold for their table. Have to hit a literal doorbell to be let in. Setting a tone of mystery before getting your meal is interesting but its also unnecessary and even more annoying when the service does not live up to the hype.
The experience and ambiance of this "speakeasy" is very enjoyable. If I hadn't eaten a meal prior to arriving, I would have tried more than the marinated olives on the menu... would like to return to try some of the other food. The cocktails that I tried were very unique and tasty!
Great little place you have to work a bit to find. Very interesting cocktails and awesome food to match.
Fantastic service, drinks, and food. A wonderful way to celebrate our birthdays and kick off our Seattle trip!
Fun, cozy, dark spot for an excellent cocktail or two.
Nice place awesome drinks .. and the lumpia to die for ..
We were glad to learn ahead of time that reservations are needed to get into Knee High, or we might have been very disappointed on our "speakeasy tour". The entrance has a certain charm, and the ambiance inside is very appealing (though the low light made it necessary for some of us to use our phone lights to read the menu, haha). I was "forced" to rate the food in order to proceed with the review, but we only came for cocktails. After seeing the food menu, we decided that we have to come back to try the food sometime. The cocktails that we ordered were very enjoyable; some of us were particularly fond of the "Absinthe Minded".
Good ambience with decent food and good drinks
We wished we were seated downstairs with better ambiance. Also, the servers very very inattentive
This place gets it when it comes setting the tone and overall fusion. The drinks have a deep south elegance and western flare. The food ushers in a Filipino comfort food blending in the Asian influence into the fold. Great place for a date and renting a place for a event that requires intimacy.
We loved the absinthe and the spanish tuna plate. ......
Amazing drinks and fun atmosphere. We were only planning on staying for 1 drink but ended up ordering 3! Great for a first date and the speak-easy vibe is really fun
I love this place: the delicious food, the unique cocktails, the gorgeous period decor. My only disappointment was that we were seated in the entryway dining area as opposed to downstairs where the most beautiful decor is. Seriously, gorgeous. Of course, the mural in the upper dining room is lovely and the view of the upstairs bar is also lovely. The prices were more expensive than we originally thought but it was so delicious that it was worth it. Definitely a must-see if you’re in Seattle—just make sure you make a reservation in advance.
Second visit, service and craft cocktails were outstanding!
Knee High Stocking was a fun experience with interesting food and drinks!!
Amazing atmosphere for any occasion. Definitely worth a return visit
Overall great experience. Lumpias were delicious. The only negative about food is really small portions for the price.
Awesome cocktails and un-ordinary Filipino food - easy, casual vibe!
Great speakeasy. Unique drinks. Server was awesome. Girlfriend loved it
Funky, cozy spot - great for a special occasion or that"wow" factor. Cocktails were intricate and complex, and the bartenders were amenable to substitutions and also making simpler options (hint: best gin & tonic!). Filipino food was superb, filling and just spicy/greasy enough to suit the mood. Service was attentive and careful, despite the volume of customers. Only criticism: Background music was on the louder side which strained conversation at times.
The ambiance and essence of this special gem is very much in the style of a proper speak easy. The entrance is a little hidden, the light is low in lounge, and the bartender dedicated to making specialty cocktails. The mixologist will take time to perfect your boozy libation. While the wait staff is a little inattentive, the drinks and food offset the wait time.
It took an hour for our drinks to come out, the food was overpriced and not very good.
ad fsssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss a
Love that it's hard to find! Would definitely come back!!!
Compared to other cocktail bars that I have been to in the city, my experience was just ok. Our staff seemed distracted and while they offered to make a drink based on our preferences they never actually told us what they made. I would go again if I was close, but of the many similar types of place in Seattle, I won't go out of my way to visit.
Had a nice stop in for some apps and a late night cocktail.
Lovely cocktails, great food but a little cramped. Downstairs seemed roomier and had a much more 'speakeasy' vibe, but we sat upstairs next to an open window.
Amazing bartender (Mihail)! Amazing (although very expensive) cocktails
We did a small tour of Speakeasy's in the area last Friday and hit a few in the area. The ambience at Knee High didn't seem like a Speakeasy which is what we were hoping for, but more of a corner bar. When we first sat down, the bartender didn't pay us much attention - quite different from the spot we'd visited just before this one. After awhile we were finally greeted and upon asking a few questions the bartender warmed up and it was a better experience. Great martini - he nailed it. We didn't order food so I can't speak to that, but the drinks were good. For a more "Speakeasy" style experience, I would recommend doing something more with the general seating area. The bar area fit the description a bit better but general seating felt like a standard cafe so we moved from a table to the bar. I liked the doorbell to get in, that added to the feel. I would make a few little changes, but it was overall a good time.
I would have recommended Knee-High a couple of years ago. A few things have changed since then. The cocktails seem less interesting (but that may be just me; maybe my tastes are changing). The hostess the last few times has been quite impatient, curt and snotty. The bartender during my last visit was a delight and creative. But the previous bartender was a jerk and snob, and the bartender before him was friendly but pretentious. The music has worsened considerably. It used to be that, whenever I went in, Knee-High jazz was playing. Nearly every time for the past year, all I hear is bass-heavy, thumping electronic.
When I moved to the city a few years ago, people mentioned Knee-High as a place worth visiting. Nobody does anymore. I'm not surprised. The staff are less friendly. The drinks are worse. The ambience has become less interesting and no longer offers a pemium over other clubs to justify the cost of the cocktails (other beverage prices seem standard).
The service window in the upstairs kitchen ruins the upstairs-bar experience. That space used to feel cozy, like a hidden, quieter corner in the back of the bar. Sitting there now feels like sitting next to the front door -- uncomfortable and drafty.
The rudeness of the hostess last time I was there deserves special mention. A friend and I had come in at 8 (half an hour before our reservation) and were seated at the bar because there happened to be space. Around 9:40 the hostess asked us if we were going to have another drink. When I said "no, we're fine" (our drinks weren't even empty), she broke eye contact, curtly put the bill on the counter directly in front of me, and, without a word, walked away. We had been at the bar for 1 hour and 45 minutes -- 1 hour and 10 minutes after our reservation started. Her message was obvious: "get out." Mission accomplished. Neither my friend nor I will make the mistake of coming back.
Don was an excellent bartender. Total professional and a pleasure to speak with.
The thrill of these hidden gems will never wear off. The service was excellent, the vibe was engaging. My date thought it was the most wonderful and romantic place. Thanks for making that happen.
If you like the hidden bar experience, knee high is Totally worth it.
