Delicious food and top notch service. A great place for friends or family or a date night. Nice wine list. Portion sizes are just right, many things can be split. Definitely a must-try restaurant if you are in the Seattle area

Loved this place! Great food, ambiance and cool vibes with an occasional singing chef! They were playing Sir Duke and singing along while preparing the food. We had the bucatini, summer squash ravioli and grilled snap peas. Highly recommend this place!
