Italian | Lake Union / Eastlake, Seattle

A special day for us(49th wedding anniversary) was made even better by the service, food and setting at Serafina's. The day was hot, but the patio was quite comfortable and the water glass refills appreciated. I always recommend Serafina to people who have never experienced the food or atmosphere. More

Contemporary Italian | Lake Union / Eastlake, Seattle

I love the foot at Le Messe. But if there is one thing they can improve on, it's reducing the gap between when appetizers and pasta are served. My wife and I have been to there no less than 6 times and most of the time, we have to wait quite a while for the pasta. More

An absolutely perfect experience. We were out to celebrate my little brother's 21 birthday, and both our server and the bartender went above and beyond to make our celebration a success. The ambiance was lovely, the food was great, and the kitchen was very accommodating of food intolerances. More

Rafael, our server, was incredibly accommodating to many special dietary needs we had...and was just a warm, friendly and professional guy! We'd come back just for him...but the food was amazing as well. Thanks More

Fusion / Eclectic | Lake Union / Eastlake, Seattle

A very nice place if you don't like crowds for brunch. Food is good. The only, subjective, disadvantage is that it does have a dark interior that for some is more associated with dinner time rather than brunch. But we did not mind at all. Great place! More

The bathrooms were less than ideal. The toilet is water efficient, but doesn't flush the bowl clean. It was dirty. The nozzle on the soap dispenser fell off so I moved over to the next sink to wash my hands. Other than those issues, the food was awesome as usual. I would recommend Wild Ginger McKenzie to a friend! More

Mexican | Lake Union / Eastlake, Seattle

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

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

Birch is a great little secret of Seattle’s. There were surprisingly few people eating there when I took my friend to celebrate a birthday. The food was amazing; delicious and beautiful. The service staff was attentive without being intrusive. We did the tasting menu and the wine pairing, which is exactly what I’ll do next time I go there. More
