A quick trip to Seattle launched a frenzy of "OMG" so much to eat! I am sure everything has been said about Pikes Place. I shall add to that list. Our lovely concierge at The Mediterranean Inn suggested we go to this place in the Pike Alley that has no signage by design and enjoy some wonderful farm to table Italian food. Well, first off we never looked for it we only happened to "find" it and what a joy. A total whimsy European cave like main dining room, equippted with "trapeze" accoutraments, yes trapeze, more on that later. We started of with the "green" salad of butter lettuce, asparagus, fava beans, pistachios and a tarragon vinaigrette. one word . DELICIOUS. followed by the house made linguine and clams. The garlic, lemon, white wine sauce with parsley was insanely good and the clams seemed to have floated in that morning, again superb. Then we had the fish special which was a marbled salmon from Vancouver. when I say I have never tasted salmon this light, soft on the tongue, cooked to perfection at medium rare, with a pesto drizzle and red pepper coulis. I was blown away. Only to faint after dessert of get this! Nutella cheesecake with candied pecans and dark chocolate. Some where in there the lovely trapeze artist used the things coming down from the ceiling and performed feats of grandeur to add extra whimsy to our already magical dinner. Needless to say we went again two days later for more of the best food in Seattle, served with style, class, grace and fun. PS. lots of bread for soaking up the pasta sauce.

Food was fantastic for lunch. Decently priced as well. We had to bring my dog to seattle and they were willing to let him in as long as he stayed laying down. They even brought him some water. Very pleased with this restaurant and thankful for their willingness to let my family and dog in.

We were very pleased we went through the anonomous pink door last friday. We were greeted by an unexpected lively atmosphere and by friendly attentive staff. As we hadn't booked we went to the bar until a table was ready. We had bread which was a good start, and l chose lasagne pink door which was a delicious vegetarian dish, the other two in the party had pappardelle al ragu bolognese which was very well received. It was a shame we were in a hurry because we would like to have stayed longer. A place to be recommended.

My favorite restaurant in this city! The cioppino here is AMAZING. It's my go to meal. The lasagna is made just the way it's supposed to be. If you're lucky enough to be there when they have performers then you're in luck. I work at a hotel nearby and I recommend it all the time. The only thing is, it's sometimes hard to get a table for dinner if you're a last minute type person. They get busy, but fir good reasons. Enjoy!

Awesome place for dinner. For a quieter and formal experience make sure to make reservations to sit in the main dining area (coming down the stairs from the main entrance it has a bit of a speakeasy or Cabaret feel). There is also a more casual and festive bar and and dining area on the other side of the restaurant - often with live music and other acts. There's plenty of outdoor seating during the warmer months with fantastic views of Puget Sound and is a great place to have a relaxed dinner with friends as well.

This place was nifty! Loved the whimsical decor, charming waitstaff, and delicious food. We ordered: Blistered Asparagus. Dining companions devoured most of it before it got to me so no photo, but I thoroughly enjoyed everything about this dish. The asparagus was well seasoned and cooked to the perfect texture. The tasty eggs and prosciutto added flair. Garlic Bread. This was okay. The bread was charred which gave it a nice smokiness, but it was not flavorful enough. Cioppino Pink Door. I expected that their signature dish would not disappoint, and I was absolutely right. The clams, mussels, calamari, prawns, and fish were all delicious, but the broth just knocks the whole experience out of the park. It was flavorful, complex and interesting, without being overpowering. I loved it so much I had to tilt the bowl so I could spoon up every last scrumptious drop. That segues to the best and worst thing about this dish: it does not come with any pasta, bread, or other sort of carby goodness! On the one hand this is a light yet satisfying dish that is perfect all on its own, and I should really be grateful for the lack of additional calories (see: huge serving of tiramisu for dessert); but on the other hand I was a bit taken by surprise and found myself wishing for something to sop up the delightful broth with. Tiramisu. The serving size was shockingly large and made me feel immense guilt for indulging in such sinful gluttony. It was delicious though - can't go wrong with something so classic! I also had the mocktail with strawberry puree, lemon juice, and a splash of balsamic vinegar. It was sweet and tart and sublime. Overall I really enjoyed this restaurant. The meal came out to be a bit pricey but was well worth it. Add in the great service and beautiful decor, I'm sure it'll be a good time for anyone. They also have performances in the evenings, which I plan on returning for!

My wife and I went for our 7 year anniversary, for the first time, and it did not disappoint. This is old world Italian charm, wrapped in romantic ambiance, with a sophisticated taste experience, and although they offer a live Cabaret and Burlesque show, we only came for the dinner, this night. The Pink Door is a high-end Italian experience and trust me, worth every penny. Terrence was our Waiter for the evening and this guy is incredibly professional and truly knows his stuff, he even remembered our names. He really impressed my wife and me. Terrence suggested a few vegetarian dishes and I chose the "LASAGNA PINK DOOR" with fresh spinach pasta layered with besciamella, pesto and topped with marinara sauce, with a "CELERY & MUSHROOM SALAD," with my usual Ginger Beer, and boy did Terrence pick two winners. They were two exquisitely prepared dishes and the experience of what a Foodie's dreams are made of. So very delicious, a fabulous dining experience, and Terrence really made our anniversary a night to remember. We'll be back for the show.
