There was not a thing wrong with this place, the staff were inviting, the music and the whole experience were phenomenal, I would definitely come back. I am very interested in their more fun and light hearted performances like Cirque or Movie Themes, etc.

Very festive venue with top service and comfortable seats. The sound (Four seasons by Vivaldi and Piazzolla, Seattle Symphony) could have been better. IMHO, it was not as brilliant as I recall from other venues (Vancouver BC, Detroit, Europe). I will still return! We were more than compensated by the Superb Tango Performance by Eva & Patricio! We will follow... More

Benaroya Hall is the home of the Seattle Symphony Orchestra, the NW's emerging world class orchestra. Beautiful architecture, great acoustics wherever you are seated in the hall and fine food and beverage refreshments for any appetite. BRAVO!!!

Who knew that a concert hall with a railroad tunnel running underneath it (a tunnel under Seattle) could be such a lovely place! The home of the Seattle Symphony, the lobby is an atrium that reflects the weather. The Symphony Hall simply shines with wood and clear music. The Recital Hall is the home to smaller productions, look to see... More

I don't think there is a seat in Benaroya Hall that would disappoint anyone when it comes to acoustics. Granted, being close to the stage is desirable for many obvious reasons, however don't turn down an opportunity to attend a performance here if you love music. The hall itself is very nice and comfortable. The reception area is very nice... More

The sounds and acoustic is amazing here. There's a projector playing as the performers are playing their instruments and it was very entertaining to see. We sat at the upper level middle but we had a great view still to see all the instrumentalists. It was beautiful to watch and listen to. Worth a visit!

Wonderful architecture and luxurious interior. Plays host to a whole bunch of musical events that cater to mostly classical tastes, especially the Seattle Symphony Orchestra.

We attended a Christmas concert by the Seattle Men's Choir and sat in the box seats with our adult children and their guest. From a sound point of view the blending was heavenly, but I am not sure if it was the seats or the choir that made it hard to understand their annunciation. I am thinking it might have... More

We saw John Mellencamp and had to leave mid concert. Acoustics better suited for classical concerts,
