I would have given this restaurant five stars, but the service was terrible. I ducked in on a Wednesday afternoon for a quick bite and drink and was incredibly disappointed by the bartender's service. Despite there being only two of us at the bar and a table of four in the corner, he was inattentive, unfriendly, and managed to get... More

We came here for dinner during our recent trip to Seattle. Monsoon is one of our B&B hosts' favorite restaurants nearby, so of course we wanted to check it out. We arrived a bit early for our reservation, and had a happy hour drink while we waited for our table to be ready. We liked the small plates menu and... More

It's hard to admit.... But, I'm not really a big fan of Asian, Pan-Asian, or Asian-American cuisine. I've been luck enough to go to China twice and Japan once--so I've tried. Never been impressed....., 'til now. This is not just the best restaurant in an Asian tradition I've ever eaten in, but perhaps one of the dozen or so best... More

We were delighted with the excellent food and friendly service--nicely appointed dining room, too. Chic. They take the extra steps to serve food that is well about average in taste and presentation. Don't miss it!

We had a lamb dish and a prawn curry dish as well as a few appetizers that were all very good. Sitting up at the kitchen bar offers an interesting perspective to see all of the food coming out. It's definitely worth checking out, although not quite the value it was priced at for me.

It is a Vietnamese restaurant with touches of other Asian foods and plenty of modern influence. Each single dish was very well presented and simply delicious!

Though I am a bit tired of Asian Fusion restaurants this spot was quite nice. The oysters were divine and the mignonette was delicious. Not at all spicy but an interesting mix of flavors. The drunken chicken and eggplant dishes were excellent.

The food and menu were varied and interesting, service was pleasant and efficient, the setting is casual and upbeat. My daughter and I ordered 5 appetizers and no entre and shared with our other two diners so we tried a lot of different foods. The rib appetizer was great, but it was all so good. It was a delicious and... More

One of our favourites and tonight was my wife's birthday fete shared with daughter and her partner. Soluritas (Monsoon's take on a margarita) were great as usual to start the evening off. We ordered the Dungeness crab and shrimp starter roll which was fried but not greasy with a light rice wine vinegar sauce. The Drunken Chicken was excellent as... More

There were three of us that shared a variety of dishes. The dishes were very different and is a cross between Chinese and Thai. Started with the Ahi roll which was nothing special. The crispy veggie roll with the sauce was very good and a must. We tried the drunken chicken which these fellow posters recommended and we were not... More
