Whether for brunch or dinner, Boat Street is one of my favorite restaurants in the city. The first thing you'll notice about Boat Street is the location: Hidden down a small driveway off an otherwise busy commercial street. Once you're inside you'll be enveloped by an eclectic mix of industrial and rustic. The menu, while clearly influenced by the Northwest location, is unapologetically French. At brunch you'll find a variety from the expected rich scrambled egg dishes to the myriad of different benedicts all the way to puy lentils with a poached egg. Dinner shows a stronger local influence and regularly features local shellfish and salmon. Which is not to say there is a shortage of heartier dishes like pork chop or rib-eye steaks or heavily French dishes like a plate of various pâtes. During dinner, the scene is an understated romanticism for dinner. Bunch is brighter, livelier, and filled with families.

One of Seattle's treasures! All their food is prepared with passion and love and tastes so good. They are wonderful to use for catering events as well.

The Boat Street Café is a charming rustic restaurant that is inspired by the French region of Provençal. The vision of Boat Street Café is to stimulate an exquisite dining experience by both its food and environment. We went to brunch here a few weeks ago to celebrate my fiancée’s sister’s birthday. The brunch menu is pretty extensive with a good combination of sweet and savory. Also, I like the fact that their French menu is easy to interpret and you’re not left wondering what you just ordered. For my meal, I ordered the eggs benedict with goat cheese and artichokes. The rest of the table ordered the poached egg over pork hash, cornmeal custard cake with bananas, and corn pudding with sausage. The dishes are just the right portions and served with fruit and mix greens salad. The eggs benedict dish was delicious with the right balance of flavor in the hollandaise sauce. The only downside is that there was no meat in the dish, so for meat lovers, be sure to get a side of bacon or sausage. The pork hash was tasty as well with a smoky flavor to satisfy your savory needs. I didn’t try the other dishes but everyone looked pleased. The other distinctive aspect about Boat Street Café is their atmosphere with slate tables, wood floors, and bistro lighting. The place looks like a setting for a Kinfolk magazine photo shoot. This space is perfect for socializing, being romantic, and celebrating special occasions. I enjoyed my experience at the Boat Street Cafe and look forward to dinner here sometime soon.

this is where I took my date for Valentine's Day. I think I made a good choice in taking her here for the atmosphere and the location. I would have only changed two things however. One, there was this door that kept on opening and closing very loudly. Two, I ordered the rabbit which was very delicious but it only came with the rabbit and nothing else. I understand its an expensive plate but some potatoes with have been nice

"We were surprised how charmed we were by this funky little ""daylight rathskeller"" with an artistic flair filled with attractive 30-somethings. We ordered the Halibut with mint sauce, and a double-cut pork chop and both were excellent. Bring a well-padded derriere if you intend to sit at the tables the slab-sided wood benches -- which we chose anyway because they provide the best crowd watching!"
