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.

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.

This is so good. Now when they say good burgers and fries oh and milk shakes. This is where you go. Its pretty cool that the owner takes from the restaurant in Tacoma Frisko Freeze. So just know you pay for everything separate but it was all good. Best part they had fries with milk shake.
I often get overruled but this is one of my favorite burgers in Seattle. Really fatty and juicy burgers with a good array of sauces. Fries are decent. All in all it's a gut-bomb but the flavor is amazing, especially when you're already a little tipsy.
Great burgers! Fries were a little too salty for my taste, but fried to be a nice soggy and crunchy consistency. Space is tight and it was packed when I went on a Tuesday evening. I'd recommend it but, but be ready to take your food to go or hope that there is a seat available to enjoy your amazing burger.
Always good option for a late night burger. Crowd can be a little hairy at that hour but that's the case with lots of late night places... In the day it's a good, normal spot.
Just discovered this Seattle gem. These are the best burgers I have ever eaten in the city. Coupled with a very courteous staff; this is a go-to place for anyone hungry for a great burger.

TL;DR: WAY overpriced food with mediocre taste. Read the fine print because you're being charged for more than you think. Chili's with a bigger bar. Head somewhere else. The Good: Staff is always kind and helpful. Food is prepared at quoted times. The pasta (specifically the mac and cheese) is pretty good. Discount (25%) during lunch if you have a Washington driver's license (you'll need it). The BAD: Pizza is small and mediocre and the burger is pretty bad. It's greasy and covered in way too much mayo to make up for the lack of flavor. I asked for medium rare and received a burger that was brown throughout (well done). The sourdough bun is barely sour and has the consistency of a regular bun rather than The fries are a greasy/soggy mess, but spiced well with pepper. Lunch prices look lower, but they aren't. For example the burger during dinner costs $17/14. This means $17 with fries, $14 without. During lunch, this burger is $13.95 (And you'll still be paying the extra $3 for fries). Not to mention there's an extra 4% gratuity automatically charged to you bill for the kitchen staff (not the service though). So now that $14 lunch you thought you were ordering is nearly $20 for a soggy mess of a burger and fries. Even with a discount bringing this to $16, it wouldn't be worth it. Mixed drinks are OK, but nothing to write home about. The Result: My girlfriend and I live very close by and have ordered at the restaurant and do go multiple times trying various items, but we have both decided to never return. The price and quality is not worth the convenience.
My boyfriend and I were headed to the Hard Rock Cafe and saw this on the walk there. It looked so cool inside we pretty much immediately decided to eat there instead. I'm so glad we did! Our service was awesome and the food was beyond delicious. 10/10
Wow, where to start. You might notice a theme in this review... walk any other direction and you will find a better place to eat. When a place looks busy on the outside but dead on the inside... walk away. When the waiter seems coked out and can't really help with your selection... walk away. When you ask for a dark and stormy (rum and ginger beer) and are told "they just aren't working today..." walk away. When your Hawaiian pizza has no distinguishable pineapple on it and multiple waiters(except ours...) swear it is, (supposedly a pineapple jam splattered on the pizza)...Walk away. When your waiter delivers your drinks and then takes your food order, drops off a bottle of water(without saying a word), then drops off the bill without saying anything...Walk Away. When you find out the waiter upsold you for $7 rum for your drink without informing you... Walk away. Good thing we didn't get food poisoning... but really I would avoid this place... Seattle has so many better places to eat than here.
A completely average overcooked burger with overly salty fries. Given the price, I don't see a good reason to come back.
The food here is always fresh and delicious. The handmade pasta is perfect! Not overly cooked, it taste just like real Italian pasta. The servings are a little big, but if you go with a group of people its great for sharing and trying different plates. I recommend trying the beignets - the sweet and the savory ones. The cocktails are excellent and servers give great recommendations. They also have a happy hour drink wheel that they spin every hour. It's pretty fun. The only negative is they won't seat you until your entire party has arrived. This is a policy at other restaurants too. Just make sure your entire party is present or you could loose your reservation.

Big juicy burger with good hefty fries. The party is good-sized and made well done but not dried out. Would come back again for a good burger.
How dare they make my food in a timely manner! I mean COME ON GUYS, I mean I got my drink first thing after I payed jeez get with it. ON TOP OF IT ALL... The food was good and exactly what I ordered I can't believe I it denouttaden would eat there again.
Great food, reasonable price for downtown Seattle. Everything tastes fresh, and the owner is so nice!
Pure meat flat iron patty, but not overly greasy. Good bun, fresh jalapenos, completely melted pepper jack, avocado mashed just before plating. This is how burgers should be done.
If you like little dive restaurants with comfort food, grease, and lots of ketchup you'll probably like Saley's. I think there were about 6 tables and 10 chairs total inside, so it is very small. The two guys frying the burgers and fries were ok but the environment is more Greasy Spoon than Creperie. Be sure to look at the more recent reviews, and you'll note they no longer do crepes, for example. The place is marginally clean, meaning it doesn't scream 'clean'. Having said this, my burger was fine as were the big steak style fries (cooked nicely, not greasy). I'd go back for sure but feel it only rates 3 stars because it really simply isn't anything exceptional.
