I really like this small neighborhood restaurant. The bartender made some excellent cocktails. The wait staff was attentive and just the right balance of professional and friendly. The decor is very cool. We loved all 4 appetizers and 2 main courses. Very well done and our foodie friends from out of town agreed. More

Contemporary French / American | Capitol Hill / First Hill, Seattle

This was our second time visiting and this time we brought friends. We raved about this place for a while and probably over sold it to a few. But it does not disappoint. The beef-centric story, experience and menu isn't heavy, isn't fatty and there are times you think you might be eating something else and are blown away when you hear how the plate is broken down. We loved the Heirloom Tomato BLT salad when we were there last Sept, and although understood it was seasonal was bummed when we couldn't experience it this time... BUT, the asparagus with trout roe is the new BLT!!! It was one of my favorite dishes this time, really amazing. More

Northwest | Capitol Hill / First Hill, Seattle

We never fail to love everything about The Tin Table--the food is consistently good, right portion size, and well-priced. Particularly love the floozy burger, and just about all the pasta offerings. Dessert is always a hit. It's a wonderful and special atmosphere. Always feel welcome, and so fun to stop by the ballroom across the hall to watch whatever dancing is underway. More

Italian | Capitol Hill / First Hill, Seattle

Alia the host was amazing, and seated us promptly at a very comfortable booth in the lounge. Max, our server, provided outstanding customer service, was knowledgeable on the menu, and was efficient throughout our meal. Malcolm cleared the way for each course with style and grace, and ensured there was nothing further we needed whenever he stopped by the table. Dom, the bartender, poured delicious drinks and actually came out to greet our table! We did miss the tagliolini with boar ragu. BRING IT BACK :) More

Quinn's Pub

$$$$
Gastro Pub | Capitol Hill / First Hill, Seattle

The food is delicious, especially their burger and fries. Quinn's is a great location if you are going to Neumos or Barboza. Quinn's is also fun if you like to "people watch" as both floors of the restaurant have nice lighting and views of Capital Hill life at Pike and 10th. However, when one of our party tried to get a drink at the bar, they were questioned as to whether they were eating at the restaurant. It is confusing that a reatai with a BAR seemed bothered by someone ordering at the bar. More

Loved visiting Barrio. Went with family and started with their blood orange margarita and nachos. Probably best nachos I've ever had. Afterwards, we had the chance to try many tacos but my favorites were the beer battered shrimp, pork, and chicken tinga. All in all great food, and will definitely be back! More

Comfort Food | Capitol Hill / First Hill, Seattle

A great option for lunch or brunch after mass at the Chapel of St. Ignatius nearby. The menu had enough variety to keep everyone in our group of 6 happy. One guest with mobility issues was grateful for the easy parking and elevator. However, when he wanted to use the restroom he had to trek out through the lobby and up a fairly steep set of steps to the restroom. Luckily he was able to navigate it. Not sure what someone in a wheelchair would do. More
