Enjoyed brunch out on the enclosed atrium on a chilly Sunday afternoon. Food was wonderfully presented and absolutely delicious. Mimosas were quite delicious as well!

After finally finding it we were welcomed by a lovely friendly host/server who seated us ti wherever we wanted. It was nice and toasty warm in the outdoor covered area. The server took our order promptly and food came quite quickly. Presentation was nice. My husband had the banana foster French toast and I had the crab cake Benny. Delicious hollandaise and good potatoes. Unfortunately the eggs were a little overcooked for my liking but the server didn’t ask his I wanted them. She was kind enough to offer to replace it but I opted for two new eggs which cane quickly but would have liked a little more more hollandaise to go over my cooked down crab cakes and English muffin. Also it seemed a little pricey for the atmosphere. $27. My husbands was delicious and more modestly priced. Also I think the inside part of the restaurant could be a bit more tidy. It seemed a bit cluttered with unused bottles of condiments on windows sills and counters. Kind of cramped. Can’t take away the friendly and accommodating service.

We enjoyed every bit of our brunch. Restaurant noise level was minimal. We were not rushed and our server was as pleasant as she could be. Each of us enjoyed our selection of food items. Definitely will return.

We were out in the rainiest night of the year, so the restaurant was empty on a Friday night. Clean plate club of our family of five, top new york steak 2" thick, salmon dish eaten by 15 year old - cooked to perfection and gone! Filet, excellent, New England Clam Chower eaten by Boston-girl: not as rhick as I prefer but really a good cup of chowder, I would order again. Shrimpz scampi-good. Tomato soup and lobster mac & cheese - all excellent.

We arrived with a party of 7 for an 11:30am reservation. Weren’t seated until 11:50 even though restaurant not full. Staff running around like crazy, drinks didn’t arrive for another 1/2 hour, meal arriving well past an hour of being seated. One meal not fully cooked and not returned until we got the check. Won’t return.

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.

シアトルに行くと毎回、最後の晩餐に選んでいます。ただ、今回は今までとメニューが大きく変わっていました。勿論お料理はとても美味しかったのですが、ちょっとおしゃれに飲みたいときのおつまみ的なお料理は少なくなったように思いました。ちょっと見つけにくいところにありますが、是非言っていただきたいお店です。

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.

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!!!!
