Farm-to-table | Lake Union / Eastlake, Seattle

Wonderful dinner-I was excited that it was beautiful food, unique, delicious and filling unlike some restaurants that focus only on the presentation. The wine pairing was amazing. It is pricey but worth it and we hope to go again next year when they are open for their short summer season. Really amazing dinner! Lovely experience in a beautiful setting. More

Mediterranean | Lake Union / Eastlake, Seattle

The wine list is reasonable. We had a bottle of Chateau Pierre-Bise Cremant for $54.00 and it was excellent, about as good as "real" champagne. Mixed drinks also well done for reasonable price. Highly recommend the Cicchetti Trio for appetizer, great to share for 2-4 people, especially the stuffed dates, the lamb dolmathes and the olives. The watermelon salad and the short ribs were spectacular. The pasta dishes were very good but not as special. The creme brulee for dessert was great. We were 4 friends out to dinner together and had an all round great time. More

I went to Le Messe with a group if 6 friends for a Bachelorette Dinner and the entire staff at the restaurant treated us so nicely. Everyone congratulated the bride-to-be, offered amazing drink, appetizer and food selections. The meal was unreal and we couldn't stop talking about how good everything was. To top the end of an already amazing dinner, the staff surprised us with champagne - they really went above and beyond. Thank you so much!! More

Seated earlier than our reservation in a location of our choice (outside). Friendly and efficient waitstaff. Very accommodating bartender who came out to the table to ask me questions about a drink I wanted him to make up - came out great! Very good appetizers and main course (their pasta is very good). Good single glass wine choices. This was my second time back and can’t wait to go again. More

I have been to Republic several times and have always enjoyed my experience. I generally recommend Republic when I have out of town guests at home or at work because the location is great, the food is always fabulous and the service is outstanding. More

There doesn’t seem to be a link between actual open tables and the Open Tables app. I made a reservation and it took 20 minutes for an actual table to open up for us. Once the food showed up - it was delicious! Just think the staff was overwhelmed with the lunch rush - but the lack of real-time table availability could be improved upon. More

Seafood | Lake Union / Eastlake, Seattle

A great place to grab lunch in bustling South Lake Union. One of the few places that allows reservations and is quiet enough to hear yourself think AND hear the person you're having lunch with. Service is attentive and food is delish. I had the fish and chips which were very airy and light and didn't leave me feeling like I needed a nap when I returned to the office. More
