Always a delightful experience, a very interesting menu and a great atmosphere. Situated in the Melrose Market , between Pike and Pine, east of the freeway in a lovely old building. Great service and willing to accommodate dietary needs.

We visited for dinner following multiple recommendations of some well informed Seattlites. The location was beautiful. However, from, the start, the service was awkwardly hostile and waitresses surprisingly untrained in proper service. 1.

We had a great dinner here. Be aware that the menu changes daily to take advantage of what's in season. Two of us shared a salad, steamed clams, root vegetables and quail. Each dish was meticulously prepared - wonderful combination of flavors and sauces. Plenty...More

Yes. At least when we were there. There were 3 "main" dinners, but we sort of just ordered 3 various app/sides and they came out in courses as our dinner. It was a little different, but the food was top notch. Beautiful... More
