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... ”

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... ”

“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 ... ”

 5 star(s)  (05/14/2001)

These comments are regarding the fine dining room upstairs, which is much different and a different menu as well. My husband and I went there for our second anniversary. very beautiful view if you sit by a... ”
