Terrific, meat oriented restaurant from the same people who bring you the met grill. Beet Salad, and lamb medallions were both excellent. Kale salad was also very good. One of our other diners had the short rib and it was delicious, with a bit of asian spice. Not many veg options. Medium level noise level Good wine list.
Great atmosphere and awesome staff, Susan was extremely pleasant. The salmon was the best I had the whole trip including the pairing with tequila??? Tried them together and it was awesome! The pork chop was the beat we've ever had! Highly recommend making this a stopping point if you're in Seattle.
Large portions, so delicious! Highly recommend. My groups only concern was the asparagus wasn't too their liking, still worth going to!
I'm vegetarian and this place blew me away! There was really only a couple vegetarian options but I would absolutely go back just for the entree! Amazingly prepared! And everyone else I went with loved their stuff. Great cocktail menu. Great wine selection. Unique beers.
Nice casual place, good selection. Our bartender needed to find a personality.

Radiator has been on my list of places to go for a long time. I was excited when a friend and I finally got a chance to check this place out for happy hour. We got the tater tots w/fried egg & gravy which is a great appetizer and the $8 debris sandwich (pork, smoked cheddar, fried egg, fritos). They have a selection of whiskey that they age in their own barrels from some of the top distilleries around the country like Eagle Rare & Maker's Mark. If you're looking for some good whiskey downtown, but sure to stop by for this really popular happy hour spot.
Such a great place to get a cocktail! Cool funky decor and some good music set the stage for a good time the drinks kick like some pioneer 12s, but are very well crafted. I suggest the blister in the sun for a spicy kick on a cool Seattle night. Unfortunately I didn't get to have dinner here so I can't give a proper review on food.
Nice little whiskey bar that offered up some unique cocktails. We thought the whiskey/bourbon selection was okay (we're not far from Bourbon Country, so we're used to seeing quite a bit more) and the bartenders were friendly. Prices were a little high for the drinks and given how small the place was, it did feel a bit cramped as more people came in for happy hour. Didn't get a chance to try anything on the food menu unfortunately, but it looked good. Point of note: This place is a little tucked out of the way and can be a little difficult to find at first if you're not paying attention. Facing the main entrance to the Pike Market, go to the building on the right - there will be stairs going up to the second level and that's where you'll find Radiator.
The food and whiskey is amazing. Love this place. One of my favorites in seattle
I can not come to Seattle without coming here. The turkey drum confit is my go to, but the brisket and lamb shank are both really great too. Huge whiskey selection and always good local beers. Go.

The food was lovely. Tried a few small plates and oysters. The bartender was knowledgeable and attentive, even with the place completely packed. We sat at the bar, but it looked like the tables were receiving good service, as well. A major plus: there are outlets all over under the bar!
Upscale cocktail bar with some small plates. Service was a bit lacking, as the place felt understaffed. But the food was ok just super small portions. Some craft cocktail options that were interesting and refreshing. It's a hip spot that's worth checking out for a drink.
Love this place. Change the menu everyday, but keep a few of the staples on there at all times like the burger. Smaller plates and awesome cocktails. Highly recommended. Doesn't take reservations (except weekday lunch), so plan ahead.
A cozy cocktail bar with high quality drinks. Our server was not especially friendly but was very good at her job and knowledgeable (so I didn't mind at all that she wasn't entirely friendly). The presentation of the cocktails was also above average and the atmosphere was perfect for a late night pre/post show drink. I would definitely go back.
Great food and staff! We came in from Milwaukee and were going to swing in for a drink and some cheese, but ended up getting a "Taste of Seattle." The staff were so sweet and the atmosphere was so comfortable. Ended up having some oysters, and other regional favorites - kudos to the chef. Would recommend in a heartbeat. Totally worth a visit.

Had dinner in the bar & was served by Rachel who is one of the best servers I've ever had. She did a fantastic job. If you sit in the bar ask for her . I shared Chateaubriand and it was excellent. The thing that struck me was how accommodating & nice everyone was & willing to do whatever it took to make my visit enjoyable.I know there are negative reviews out there but perhaps a one off? I'll be going back & I live an hour away.
Nothing but great things to say about this place, I was visiting from Canada at the time and had a night on the town in Seattle with a lady friend of mine. With it being a Friday night and not having a reservation we thought it would be impossible to get a table at anytime soon but that wasn't the case, within 2 minutes of us walking through the door we were properly treated and shown to our table. Our waitor Jim was amazing he made sure we got our drinks and fresh bread right away and when it came time to order he went through and explained all the different dishes with different cuts of meat and the appropriate way to have them cooked. All in all amazing service everyone was super nice and caring, we were in and out of there within an hour And on top of that one of the best steaks I've ever had. Keep up the good work guys I'll defenitly be back next time I'm in Seattle!! 👌👌
The night started off well, valet was prompt and professional. The host staff charming and the bar was great, had one of the best Manhattan's ever. Our server Jim was fantastic, nothing but good things to say about his service. I had the filet which was good, but my husband's steak came back twice undercooked, so I enjoyed dinner alone. After the second time his steak came out he gave up on getting it right and I was already finished eating, so he when without. We accepted the comp desserts in place of the steak, but those too where lacking. $250 is alot to spend to walk out the door hungry. For a place that prides itself on steaks we were really disappointed. Again this review is not a reflection of the service, it's a poor review for the kitchen.
A classic steakhouse with very friendly and experienced staff. An extensive winelist with quality wines from all over. An iconic Seattle restaurant that has had many well known celebrity's grace their doors.
this place is our celebration destination. Great experience, great food, great staff. Craig, the maitre d is great! be sure to make reservations and drop in early for a drink at the bar.

Fast, healthy, delicious food. Even if there is a line the wait is small. I love the simplicity of the Poke
Pretty unsatisfying poke. Instead of the shoyu-ginger-sesame flavor of Hawaiian poke, this oversauced mush-bowl masks the flavors of the fish and any other of the fresh ingredients with a huge squirt of what looks like some simple garlic-chili sauce (I asked for medium spicy). Avoid.
Good, simple Poke place with lots of options. Poke Alice is my Monday lunch spot each week. The albacore is delicious and all their fish is very high-quality.
Fantastic, fresh & delicious! Great location for a healthy/tasty lunch option. The staff is friendly & service quick. The only oddity is that they reside in what seems to be a former lobby, but that's easily overlooked upon the first taste of their food!
Good value, fast service, decent quality ingredients. Overall great place to add to your lunch rotation. The entrance is on 2nd Ave close to Spring St. There are a few tables inside (and outside when it's warm) if you want to eat there but most folks get their poke to-go Things that differentiate this place from the nearby comparable options are: More protein options Fewer sauce options - mainly restricted to their house sauce and spice level (flavor-wise it's along the lines of a sweet/salty soy based sauce mixed with some hot sauce depending on your spice level) Crab salad is a little heavier on the mayo than the surrounding places Option to mix base ingredients 1/2 and 1/2 (so option for half salad half rice, etc.) Poke serving size was an exact scoop rather than a heaping scoop (but that did not bother me - it's looks small when you order but after you eat your realize you are full anyway) Spam musubi. The quality/flavor was good compared to other options in the downtown area and it will satisfy the craving, but it's not the best I've ever had. No edamame topping which is one of my favs but they do have quinoa as an option
