Mama Mia's

 1 star(s)  (05/19/2012)
“If is not broke don't fix it!!! Formerly Dave's Pizza & Calzone for 18 Years. It had great pie dough and sauce whic was used by several previous owners. New owner has changed out the good pie dough and sauce for something really awfull, totaly tasteless. Pizza by the slice left in the warmer too l... ”

Greenwood Mandarin Restaurant

“Yes, I just gave Greenwood Mandarin Restaurant a perfect score! And it's well deserved, let me explain further... My fiance' Cassandra and I have been searching for a great Chinese restaurant in the Seattle area since we moved here from Wisconsin two and a half years ago. Try place after place,... ”

Irwin's Bakery and Cafe

 5 star(s)  (05/31/2011)
“I used to live within walking distance of Irwin's and what a treat. Such a special place where the food is delicious, the revolving art shows cutting edge and the ambience comfy and welcoming. I would to go in abour 9 am and have coffee and Blueberry pie and write or just enjoy the music. I miss you... ”

Rose Petals Restaurant

 5 star(s)  (03/19/2011)
“I went there the other night after driving by a few times and seeing what looked like alot of fun happening inside. Although, I might not exactly have fit in with the crowd, everyone treated me so kindly and I had a ball. I was able to do some school work and watch a ton of dancing laughing and go... ”

Pau Hana

 5 star(s)  (02/13/2011)
“Hawaiian Style eats in Seattle--nice people running the place (and service us too)--not just the owners, but also the service staff, and janitorial staff too! Portions are generous, pricing is great ($10 and under), drinks are great too (try the Li-Hing Margarita = amazing!) Been back 3 times si... ”

Leilani's Lumpia Land

 5 star(s)  (01/14/2011)
“Leilani's Lumpia Land had the most wonderful and delectable morsels called Lumpia that I could not eat just one of these rolled up hot resemblance of an oriental spring roll. Like potatoechips I had to eat more. They were irresistable. It satisfied my hunger as I was walking capitol hill toward B... ”

Madhu Cuisine of India

 4 star(s)  (06/26/2010)
“Belltown's new Indian Food restaurant and bar! I was very excited to see this open recently and I love stopping in for chai on the cloudy days. For happy hour - it can't be beat for well drinks and beer, the $1 dollar appetizers are a great addition but I almost always order the chicken pakora - so ... ”

Bernard's On Seneca

 4 star(s)  (10/31/2009)
“I consider this place a real find...reminds me a little of my hometown of Milwaukee with the local pubs and restaurants...and the German food and beer...I have made a new friend in Mary the waitress...a beautiful soul with a warm personality...the prices and food are wonderful...”

Pasta Freska

 5 star(s)  (01/23/2009)
“How can this be the first review of one of Seattle's best restaurants?? Go for lunch and you'll enjoy a solid Italian-American buffet that will please everyone. But go for dinner and oh! won't be bothered with having to pick from a menu, but instead Mike will greet you at the door and seat ... ”


 5 star(s)  (03/09/2008)
“Twist seems to be turning into a place for more than just drinks. They had a new chef join them several months ago and he has really transformed the food. I had eaten there last year and the food was okay, but when I went back recently with a few friends the new chef (Vinnie I think?) came by to c... ”

Bengal Tiger Cuisine of India

 5 star(s)  (08/17/2006)
“Best Indian food on the planet. Owner is also the chef, he can personalize anything to your taste. Menu has a wide variety of dishes. Service is quick and attentive. The prices are very reasonable. Was voted best Indian restaurant in Seattle by a recent Seattle times poll. Once you try it you ... ”

Park Place Deli

 1 star(s)  (08/09/2006)
“It is extremely rare that I have such a terrible experience somewhere, much less feel the need to tell others about it. My experience yesterday at Bites & Bistro in Madison Park really lit my fire. So much so that this morning I was still smoldering. Yesterday I stopped in to get a quick sandwich to... ”

Grand Buffet

 5 star(s)  (05/26/2006)
“Grand Buffet is not pretentious. It is a place you go to fill up on American-Chinese style food, a place that's almost always busy and with good reason. A great place to go with your family or with friends, expect noise, a slightly tacky environment, adequate service and great food. In general se... ”


 5 star(s)  (02/09/2006)

 5 star(s)  (12/28/2005)

Jai Thai

 4 star(s)  (09/29/2004)
“Great Thai food at a great location! This small restaurant has excellent spring rolls and chicken satays. I had a great experience there.”

Von's RoastHouse

 5 star(s)  (07/10/2004)
“Wife and I are both Weight Watchers, but neither of us could hold back, even with the "Neo Food", which sounded delicious. She had the sampler (turkey, pork and chicken), and I had the Caribbean Jerked Pork. And the Elysian ESB beer. QUITE good! And speaking of beer: the decor, consisting of beer... ”

El Gaucho

 3 star(s)  (05/22/2004)
“El Gaucho is a unique dining experience. It is pretentious, overpriced, and so dark that not only can one not see the food, one cannot read the menu. I was forced to move to one of the distant dim lights to read my menu, which shocked the waiter, who hustled me back to my table and, guess what, hand... ”
