We stopped here for a drink late one night. I had the #1 best drink of my several weeks in Seattle, a San Miguel cocktail made with Gin, St. Germain, Lemon, and Rhubarb bitters.

Ocho is one of my favorite spots in Seattle-for its food and drinks. Need I go on? Okay... They serve authentic tapas dishes, which is great if you want a lot of little things instead of a big entree. The broquetas are amazing, so start with that. The sangria is mixed well and they use really good liquor. Other than... More

Great little spot. Presentation and taste on the drinks was top notch. Went there for breakfast. Tiny dining space but it creates the atmosphere. Definitely plan on a round two soon.

Instead of going to Ocho, here's my advice: take about $80 or $100 in paper money -- it doesn't matter in what denominations -- and burn them in your sink or your backyard or just out on the sidewalk. If you're not the kind of person who thinks burning cash is a good idea, then you probably are the kind... More

All the small plates and the one entree, which the chef was kind enough to adjust a couple of veggies in it to accommodate a Ketogenic diet, were very tasty. Rich flavors and good presentation. In the small dining booth area with tiny tables to push together for couples, the music played too loudly above us to thoroughly enjoy conversation.... More

We came in on a Saturday around 11 for brunch. They don't have many tables but we got one and had coffee and food. The atmosphere is vey nice and we enjoyed sitting and visiting. With only 1 waiter/bartender and I'm assuming 1 cook, things move fairly slowly so I wouldn't recommend if you're in a hurry. The food we... More

We were just in Seattle for three nights and we had dinner at Ocho on two of those nights! Oh my gosh I love this restaurant! It was so great that we almost ate there on the third night too....tried to show a little restraint. Our son lives in the Ballard area and he dines here regularly. Every dish we... More

A delightful tapas bar, with a creative menu of seasonal small plates with echoes of traditional Spanish flavor and Arab influences -- familiar favorites such as tortillas with eggs and potatoes, grilled shrimp with garlic and herbs, tasty morsels of grilled bacon-wrapped dates, squash blossoms filled with salmon mousse -- accompanied by a nice selection of cava bruts, wines, and...

You can get food here, and it's perfectly decent, but the real reason to come is for the drinks. The best margarita in the Pacific Northwest -- you can trust me, I've tried them ALL.
