Steakhouse | Belltown / Pike Place Market, Seattle

Ipanema's never disappoints! My wife and I come here about once a month and the menu keeps the favorites (garlic steak, house sirloin, ribeye) but also has new tastes to keep you guessing. This last time they offered ribs and drilled schrimp. The price is worth it, at least my wife and I think so. As long as the garlic steak and house sirloin stay on the menu we'll keep coming back.

The restaurant is gorgeous. Really great atmosphere. The music was super loud and didn't match the mood the decor suggests. The staff are absolutely amazing. The uniforms for the female staff are unfortunate. Could be more classy, less hooterish....Excited to try the outdoor seating. 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.
