Need advice -- am overwhelmed

I thought I'd report on our fabulous Seattle trip, here at the airport headed home. Right off the plane we stopped at Shuckers to have some terrific oysters. For the birthday celebration we went to Matt's in the Market, a really great spot. I had the frisee salad and scallops, both of which were quite good with really interesting flavors. Following lots of advice, we took the group of friends to Quinn's on Thursday night, which couldn't have been more perfect. A wonderful waitstaff and fabulous burgers, and the margaritas weren't bad either! Friday night, my husband's birthday, we went to Le Pichet on the advice of our hotel. After an awkward wait (there is no foyer, so you are literally standing by the other diners), we had a truly wonderful meal, which we also felt was quite reasonably priced. We shared a mixed charcuterie plate, and I had a green salad with grapefruit followed by the pork loin and polenta special. Delicious! For our final night, we again hit a real winner -- How to Cook a Wolf. We loved the small space, the delightful waiter, and our food was spectacular. The plates are meant for sharing, and although we loved every single thing we tried, our favorites were the hamachi crudo and the pasta with cauliflower. Thank you for all your advice, and I'm certainly glad I don't live in Seattle -- I would weigh 500 pounds.

Thanks, these are great suggestions. What about either Staple & Fancy or How to Cook a Wolf?

My husband and I are looking for 4 great restaurants (good wine lists a bonus). Celebrating our son's 21st b'day one night, taking some of his work friends to dinner another night. Recommendations from others include Harvest Vine, Lark, Cafe Juanita. Also Zoe. Would love to go to Walrus & C. But concerned about the wait. We are staying downtown and will have a car. Would love some advice!
