Contemporary American | Capitol Hill / First Hill, Seattle

Four partners and friends with their spouses shared a celebratory dinner at Lark. The cocktails, appetizers, main courses, desserts, and wine were enjoyed by all and the service was excellent. My hamachi crudo, beet salad, and osso bucco were delicious. The Lark Fashioned and Pinot Noir complimented the meal well. We will return soon. More

Another enjoyable night at The Palace. The updated wine list is outstanding, and interesting mix of US and wines from France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Australia, and Argentina (may have left one out). Well put together. Food also great, the chicken remains the best in town. More

Mana tops the chart on creativity and flavor! Such a unique dining experience, with a very well executed veggie forward menu. The pace of the meal was great, and we really enjoyed the intimacy of the experience. The wine and non-alcoholic drink pairings were lovely as well. I highly recommend a stop here if you're in the Leavenworth area! More

Italian | Issaquah, Eastside

We've been a few times before this, but last night they really sealed this place as one of our favorite places to go. Made a reservation online using Open Table and mentioned it was our anniversary. When we arrived, the table was set with rose petals and lovely red flutes. We promptly got a pour of Prosecco and a happy anniversary wish. It made the evening very special for us. Thank you for the little touch. We appreciate it very much! The food was incredible, as always. More

Peony Kitchen offers a fresh interpretation of Chinese cuisine in a vibrant and stylish atmosphere. In the 1930s, Shanghai was considered the Paris of the East and it was the epic center for any artistic avant-garde.

Peony’s concept is a nod to that era. The restaurant's name itself can be interpreted as the Chinese national flower Peony or the stage name of a female lounge diva. Peony is an eatery where diners can get a taste of old China and modern Chinese cuisine.More

Discover Seattle

The iconic city tucked inside the Pacific northwest coast does see a lot of rain, but when the sun shines on Seattle, it dazzles. Don’t miss the chance to dine at one of the many waterfront restaurants serving oysters and Pacific-caught seafood. Take a stroll downtown and wander in and out of bookshops and bakeries. Arguably the birthplace of American coffee culture, there’s hardly a better place to enjoy leisurely lattes accompanied by hours of computing and the occasional pen and paper sketch.
