I simply can't think of any downside to this place. Service, ambiance, location... all stellar! And some of the most creative and delicious dishes ever. Absolutely loved it!

We both enjoyed the food...service was great, very helpful, and the vibe very Seattle. Ordering is always hard the first time and the wait staff was very helpful. We walked in so sat at the window, which was not only fine but a fun, active city view of the street. I would order most anything on the menu...based on taste,... More

I was so looking forward to this meal. The restaurant ambience itself was excellent. The food was creative but not as good as I expected. Three of us shared several dishes and found ourselves wanting more, portion-wise.

Due to terrible Seattle traffic I arrived 20 minutes late for dinner with my sister who was kind enough to order for me. Let me just say,I could have survived on their bread and butter which is infused with salt and complete comfort food. In addition, I received the brussell sprouts which were amazing and shared my sister's salad with... More

Try the burnt squash with tahini, yogurt and honey! Also introduced me to New Mex Suave peppers. Really great place but a little on the pricey side. Worth it though!

This was an amazing dining experience. It is a cute, small restaurant that is somewhat casual and not pretentious, and had excellent service and outstanding food. The chef really understands flavors, and everything was interesting and delicious. We bought a bottle of wine at the Lower Bar Ferdinand (in the same builiding as Sitka, ask for Marc, he's amazing) and... More

Saturday brunch. My baked egg dish with tomatillo, peppers, potato slices and the sautéed mushrooms they happily substituted for chicken was so tasty and comforting. The crisp baguette and whipped butter were perfect. I had a glass of champagne. Sitting at a high wood table near an open kitchen, I was able to watch an intent chef's smooth work, and... More

We went for dinner on one night and breakfast another morning. Both experiences were culinary adventures with amazingly personable experiences with the staff. This is so much what the new Seattle feels like. This place is in a great venue.
