The cocktails were good, the service was good, and the food missed the mark- it wasn’t inedible, just not very intriguing or memorable. The restaurant has a great location, and is physically inviting- the outdoor/glass house seating area sparkles.

The service was not good at all. They brought the food before our drinks....as one example.

The first time I felt compelled to write a review. Our table was not ready (despite reservation) so we were asked to sit at the bar and have a drink while we wait. My friend is recently sober so we inquired about mocktails. The bartender was rude at best. After ignoring us for 5 minutes, he informed us he did not have a mocktails menu nor did he offer any alternative. We ordered ice tea. The two ice teas were $6.50. I wanted to pay cash to get away from the bar as quickly as possible once our table was ready. I had $7 cash so my friend added 4 quarters. He said "I don't need your change, ladies" in an almost mocking fashion. Once we arrived at our table we were ignored by staff with the exception of a gray haired man whose main purpose seemed to be micro-managing the staff. At one point in time he interrupted our conversation to say "if you whisper I won't be able to eavesdrop". I literally lost my train of thought. Despite a wonderful meal here last month, the halibut was dry and the rice was very undercooked. After asking the waiter for mocktail ideas and sharing our experience at the bar he said "I don't know about mocktails, I'll ask the bartender". We said "don't bother". The bruschetta was the only good thing. I work near Pike Place and Red Cedar is typically a client dinner location for us. Unfortunately not after this visit.

The location is in busy part of Seattle and tourist mecca so that is part of what one needs to know. Food was decent/good but not special. Service was terrific and everyone there was very nice and accommodating. It was convenient to Pike's since right there and was absolutely fine for lunch.

My friends filet was over cooked. We were the only table in the restaurant and so we got rushed out before actual close time. Otherwise I love this place!

The location was lovely, seated out in the covered outside space, with the glass walls pulled back. Staff was attentive, food was great. The only challenge to the meal was that we were there at Noon - and apparently everyone else was as well - the Kitchen apparently was overwhelmed and it took a very long time for the food to come out.

We are pretty hard to find Sharon! On your next visit, try taking the elevator from the top of Pike Market to the second floor, the doors will open right to the restaurant! We're glad you enjoyed, and can't wait to see you again!

Beautiful place for a yummy dinner!! We tried the baguette with olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette,salmon bruschetta and for dinner we got the rigatoni and the artichoke pasta. Everything is good for sharing too. Smaller portions but enough to still share for 2. If more than 2 go ahead and get a few more things and that will be enough to share!! Great place, great wine, great service loved the food!!!!

Burrata was great but was on a salt block and over time turned way too salty. By over time, I mean within minutes. The pizza was decent. The service and ambiance made up for it.

We decided to have a last minute mini celebration for getting a new job. It was a spur of the moment thing and I’d been wanting to visit this restaurant. It ended up being dead slow so we nearly had the place to ourselves- apparently they had just opened up for their first day following their usual 3 week holiday. The food, service, and ambiance was great but I’d suggest going for brunch or lunch instead- I think I have 5 Pan seared scallops and 6 asparagus for $36? Glad we had a certificate :) we’ll be back for weekend brunch!

The restaurant was nice, server was friendly, food was good. That being said, either the food was overpriced or the level of the restaurant is a little low. $38 for Steak Fritte that was OK and sitting on plastic chairs didn't really fit. Either the prices should come down a bit (in which it would be a great place to grab a good meal near Pike Place Market) or the quality of the food needs to come up a little to match the prices. Good meal though, and the patio seating section is pretty cool.

Had been wanting to try Red Cedar and Sage for a while, and my mom was in town which seemed like a good excuse to come. We had a really wonderful experience. The food was delicious, and there were so many things on the menu that it was difficult to pick what to order! Great service, our waiter was really funny and engaging but wasn't overly persistent about coming over.

My only complaint - and this is mostly theoretical - is that I can see it being a loud environment when really busy. The enclosed patio area especially seems that way, and in fact we declined to sit there because of the noise factor. Tables also seem pretty squished together, and I think I might have felt a bit claustrophobic if it had been much busier. I understand restaurants wanting to get as many people in as they can, but that shouldn't come at the expense of being able to sit comfortably and enjoy my meal and dining companions' conversation.
