fOOD WAS PHENOMENAL AND A GREAT SETTING. Spendy so great for a special occasion!
The best oysters we had all weekend, in fact, they were so good we had them twice.
Loved everything about our experience!
Best scallop dish I ever had. Highly recommend
The octopus appetizer was stellar. The service exceeded expectations, too.
We were a party of 6 and each of us thought the food was outstanding. The octopus appetizer was fantastic. Everything was prepared so well. Among us we had scallops, linguini with clams, chicken and dumplings, and paella. Each was delicious and we all love the brussel sprouts. If you are going to splurge, this is a great choice.
I reserved a table for my husband and myself for dinner before a show at The Moore. Having never been before, I thought I would have to rely of reviews from other sites, but was happily surprised to have our server be so enthused and excited to tell us about the menu. We started with the Salted Cod Beignets, which were amazing. I had the Scallops and my husband ordered the Pallela, both were prepared and plated with such care (we were able to watch the whole preparation as we were seated near the open kitchen). The flavors were fantastic and the overall experience was wonderful. 10/10, will be back.
Awesome new menu items for the season still love the dynamite shrimp new add but the Dungeness crab salad is amazing plus the pinxtos inspired by Spain bar snacks.
We had such an amazing time here! The service and food were outstanding. My boyfriend looked up who the Chef is and turns out she came from Chateau Marmont in Hollywood and at one point trained under Bobby Flay at Mesa. Highly recommended and we will definitely come back if we’re out this area again in the future.
Great atmosphere in the heart of downtown. A creative and well executed menu offered an adventurous taste experience yet kept things familiar and approachable. Definitely looking forward to my next opportunity to eat here.
It’s my daughter’s 21st birthday and it was a great experience. We reserved for 9:30pm and came in a little earlier. We waited at the bar by the lounge and had a drink. Before we got our drink, our table was ready. We ordered a dozen of oysters which are really sweet and fresh, you won’t even need lemons with it... which got us to order another dozen!!!
We did a family style and ordered branzino, whole snapper and paella!!! Everything was perfect... the taste, the amount of food and the service was superb!!! There’s nothing else I can ask for. We finished with a really good dessert and they even put candles for my daughter’s birthday. I would definitely go back here. Thank you a Robin for taking care of us!!!
Grilled octopus and whole snapper. You won’t regret those!
I was there for brunch. Excellent but I spent $100 just for me. That is way too expensive for one person!!!
Delicious and creative offerings, genuine and efficient staff.
Such a great experience! Our server was excellent. She was so enthusiastic, described the food so deliciously, and answered our questions thoughtfully. We went in Friday, 2/7th. Lived the Parmesan truffle fries, paella, crab salad (so good!), and everything else we ordered. Will definitely go back!
Outstanding food and service! Very nice environment as well.
You are always warned about the restaurant attached to hotel...Shaker + Spear vanquishes that myth. Our server, Rose, was passionate about everything S+S. She was so authentic-she liked working there-refreshing.
On to the food, started with the octopus app-delicious-done just right. Friend had the paella..a tad too moist for my friend...but the ingredients and combination was excellent-everything shined but complimented the other. Scallops unbelievable-fresh, huge, tasty...dessert-creme caramel with crispy cookie...interesting tart apple sorbet choice...might have gone with a rich vanilla ice cream but still a very guilty pleasure.
So good we returned for a second late night dinner at the bar. Josh directed us to the sardine starter and fried snapper main...wow.
Worth the stars...
This restaurant was such a blast! I took my boyfriend here to celebrate his birthday as the last stop on a day of fun adventures. We ordered the crab dip and crackers, octopus starter, whole snapper, seafood paella, truffle fries, and creme caramel! Everything from start to finish was impeccable but my favorites were the octopus and Thai-seasoned snapper. Not to mention, the server was so sweet and enthusiastic, she seemed to really enjoy her job and was incredibly helpful with suggestions for dishes. It was a bit of a risk to venture out of our typical celebratory dinners at John Howie or Daniel’s - but I am so, so glad we did. Without a doubt I will be suggesting this to friends and putting it on the list to come back to soon!
We had a fantastic experience the other evening. Food, drink and service were outstanding. My husband and I both had the arctic char which was cooked perfectly, and my husband inhaled his lamb meatball appetizer.
The service, though, really made our evening. We told the host we were going to a concert at the theater across the street after we ate. He mentioned he wasn’t aware of a show there, and later came by to update us that in fact our concert was at a different venue across town. The host had already asked the kitchen to speed up our order, and our server made sure we got out promptly to make our show. Such thoughtful and friendly service made it a wonderful experience, and we made our concert on time!
Interesting and delicious food. Great service. We were in a hurry, we’re given food recommendations that allowed us to make our show and still enjoy a relaxing meal.
Excellent food and service. Our server Katie was particularly efficient and friendly. We are already looking at a date to go back, this time with friends.
Party of 2 reservations for 545pm prior to a 7pm show at the Moore... Seated on time without any issue even though they were fairly packed... Cannot say enough about our server being FANTASTIC!!! (I will update once I paw through receipts & find his name)... Great recommendations & very accommodating for dietary restrictions (I'm a pain & well aware)... Will definitely revisit:D
Had a great meal with outstanding service.
Very well situated when seeing a show at the Moore theater. Nice ambience.
Great place, outstanding service and very attentive service. Will be back!
Kate was our waitress and she was absolutely amazing!!!
This modern restaurant can compete with the best restaurants around the world (including those in my Melbourne hometown).
Food and service was outstanding
Katie is awesome
The tastiest seafood we’ve had in a long time. A great spot to grab dinner before a show. We will definitely go again.
We sat at the chefs bar and were able to see all the dishes prepared. I can’t wait to come back and try more of the menu.
Wonderful interesting menu and food, elegant but inviting atmosphere, fun and friendly waitperson
Everything was lively, festive and executed at a fantastic level for our NYE dining experience. From the maître d’ who greated and seated us, to Keegan, our waiter; every detail and in whole, it was about as great an experience as I’ve had in Seattle. Keegan was superbly versed at dealing with and suggesting menu items for a person w multiple food allergies. Aside from that, he was perfectly friendly and efficient! I have dined here before and been impressed, but maybe the festive occasion made it all that much better! Keep it up S&S, you are appreciated by these two diners (at the very least, but likely thousands more)!
Great food, friendly service and lively atmosphere. Love this place, will go again.
Great! The food was fantastic.
Wonderful, delicious food.
Chairs cheap and flimsy. Tables could be larger, and chairs should be heavier, more sturdy.
Service variable...depends on the server.
We arrived early and the hostess graciously seated us. Crab dip appetizer and Delicata salad was amazing. Lamb meatball appetizer was tasty but tiny tiny portion for the price.
Biggest disappointment was the Rosemary Popover. Popovers should be hot, airy, light and steamy, but these were dense and cold. The outer crust was tough, it took major effort to rip a piece off and chew. Yuck.
The Chicken and Dumplings was ok. The crispy fried chicken skin was intriguing and unique touch, but the skins were over done so incredibly hard and chewy.
Service was friendly, but incredibly slow.
For the price point, it was an inconsistent dining experience which leaves me unenthusiastic about returning.
Delicious food (especially for seafood lovers), great ambiance with the right amount of dimmed light and moderate background music, amazing service with great recommendations from the server and sommelier!! Salt cod beignets, crab and sunchoke dip, Arctic char, and seafood paella stood out as Star dishes. Overall fantastic experience for celebratory family dinner out!
Fabulous from start to finish. My third time for the snapper and it did not disappoint.
