Friday Night Happy Hour

Thought about this post while I was bouncing around in Belltown waiting for a pal--we ended up at Twist and their happy hour specials weren't too shabby. Had a good time watching all the people and had a few pretty good drinks. Actually I like Ventana Restaurant, which is right next door and the same owner, a little more. It's not as crazy loud in there, the food was great, they were open late, and the atmosphere was perfect for sitting and just enjoying the night.

Best Caterer in Pacific Northest

just came across your post and had to mention a catering company that I am now in love with! The Organic Table Catering, based in Seattle, was absolutely amazing! I went to a wedding this past weekend and was stunned by the use of all organic and local ingredients. I have already booked them for my parents 30th anniversary in June :)

Unfamiliar Territory

A few of my friends and I hit up Desert Rose Bar & Lounge for happy hour the other night and were quite impressed. Not only is the restaurant gorgeous, but the food was really good! (we tried the hummus, steamed mussels and grilled octopus.) We don't typically find ourselves venturing outside of Hollywood, but Los Feliz just found a few more frequent visitors!

Opal in Queen Anne Closing...what's next?

Absolutely love Enza! Sorrentino's was good, but you can really tell they changed up their menu and plans to really make this pop. Wonderful, home-made pastas, warm tasty bread and a very genuine and happy staff. Probably one of my top 3 Italian restaurants in the Seattle area :) I just recently checked out their take-out deli, La Mondellina, and it was great, too! Super fresh Italian food to go...just what the doctor ordered :)

Looking for GREAT Indian food in the city or Laurelhurst area...

My friend came into town (Seattle) and we were searching for some great Indian. After looking around online and asking a few people, we ended up trying 2 different places during the week he was here. We tried out Qazi's Indian Restaurant in Fremont and Jewel of Indian Restaurant on Roosevelt. I liked both of them! Good well-rounded menus, pleasant staff and neither place broke our wallets.

Venue for 120 people for a 50th Anniversary

Oh, too bad Ray's Boathouse was booked :( Such a great Seattle venue but they do fill up fast! I give another vote to the Waterfront Seafood Grill. I went to a wedding reception there (well over 100 people) and it was incredible. Salty's is really good, too...less spendy but you'll still have great meals and great views :)

Sushi for lunch in downtown

Love, Love LOVE Red Fin Sushi for lunch!! I always go for the Sushi Lover's Combo it comes with delish miso soup (they have a great sashimi combo, too) or the Salmon Teriyaki Donburi. I've tried a few other place I'm working in downtown Seattle, but none have compared to Red Fin so far :)

Please, help me find this place.

It's Le Gourmand and it's WONDERFUL!! Anytime I have anyone coming in from out of town here are the spots we go:
Either Portage Bay Cafe or Geraldine's Counter for Breakfast/Brunch
Pike Place Chowder at the Market for some amazing chowder (they have so many choices it's hard to pick just one, but the seafood bisque is my all-time fave :) and Le Gourmand for a wonderful dinner :) For inbetweeners, we head to Smash Wine Bar for amazing wine and good samplers (the wine pours are quite generous, too)! Or if your in a seafood mood, for a change from the Market, we head to Seastar Restaurant & Raw Bar (there's one in Bellevue, too....great food, amazing drinks...just great. Hope this helps!!

Looking for fun, un-stuffy, Italian style Trattoria in SEA

Here are my 3 favorite Italian restaurants in the Seattle area (in no particular order); Enza, Rialto, and Mondello. All have wonderful real Italian menus, great ambiance and a good family feel to them. My husband and I are huge Italian fans and have tried damn near every Italian restaurant in the greater Seattle/Bellevue area, and these are the only 3 restaurants that we have left happy and satisfied each and every time :) Give 'em a try and see for your self!

Please help! Rehearsal dinner suggestions needed!

Ahhh, I was going to suggest Portage Bay, too!! That's where we did our rehearsal dinner and it was perfect and their catering company, The Organic Table catered our wedding and it was also wonderful. So sorry that they are booked, but on a good note, I've been to Ponti Seafood Grill quite a few times and they have great service, wonderful dishes and plenty of room for the size of your group. Good Luck :)

Good eats near Green Lake Park (SEA)

I was searching for some reviews (other than yelp) on Eva Restaurant & Wine Bar before my husband and I went to check them out...your review was the most right on, so thanks for that. We also tried Pasta Freska mentioned on here too, as we had heard a little about them as well, and they were also delicious. A huge bonus is that Eva is in the Greenlake area whereas we still had to venture downtown to Pasta Freska on Westlake Ave. All in all, both places were great, fab wine list at Eva, and both reasonably priced :)
