Italian | Madison Valley, Seattle

We went during Restaurant Week. Our salad and artichoke appetizers were terrific. The second course of paperadelle Bolognese was good, but we thought would have been better a little saucier and a little more flavor. We are looking forward to going back and trying their pizza. We loved the atmosphere and service was great. More

Contemporary American | Arlington, Northwest Washington

The Bistro is a steadfast, reliable place to go when you want an above average meal in the Arlington. That said, I've been going for almost 10 years and the menu never changes. It's good food but it's under seasoned and not exciting at all. The chef appears to be talented and I'd love to see him be brave and experiment with something new. Especially with the vegetarian options- pasta with veggies? It's insulting. More

The Great American Grill - The Hilton Garden Inn IssaquahThe Great American Grill - The Hilton Garden Inn Issaquah
$$$$
Contemporary American | Issaquah, Eastside


We are located on the main floor of the Hilton Garden Inn Seattle/Issaquah, which has been an Issaquah staple for 11 years. We were launched as a re-branded restaurant on May 15th, 2018, with a desire to break the mundane “hotel food” mold. At Trailhead Kitchen + Bar we believe that hotel food should be more than just burgers and fries!
Our menu is inspired by the riches of the Pacific Northwest and the incredible community surrounding us. Our Salmon Panino, Washington Apple Harvest Salad, and Steak Au Poivre will give visitors a true taste of the region and locals a taste of home.
We pride ourselves in serving creative and delicious meals in a laid back warm atmosphere. We also feature craft cocktails (and mocktails!), local beers and an extensive wine list.
We are excited to share our passion for food and drink with Issaquah locals and our out-of-town guests! We look forward to welcoming you soon!More
