I love this place. The patio is great for outdoor seating. I haven’t had a dish that I didn’t like. The gnocchi is probably the best I’ve ever had. Highly recommend this place! More

Yummy deep dish. Feels so local. I just learned that this is a chain. Seems like they could use a bit more help as things took a while but overall, a great experience. More

Farm-to-table | Ballard / Fremont, Seattle

Overall it was a great experience. The ribeye, alas, was over done; it was difficult to cut and difficult to chew. Disappointing for a place that is literally named 'Carnivore' and charges premium prices. It was tasty, nevertheless. The sides, however, were superb! I will definitely return. More
