excellent varied menu; healthy options. the Tomato Bisque is still a hit! Wonderful Korean Tacos that were new to me and great; friend had the chicken tacos which were a small order (2) so she had an additional order. Lovely staff. A relief from the fast food places in the mall. Beer and wine available.. More

Northwest | Union, South of Seattle

Good service, nice meal. Was disappointed to see two items on the menu not available, one of which I had been very interested in ordering (pork chop(. The duck was quite good, not what I’d call “Peking “ necessarily but still excellent. Surprisingly, the star of the dish was the rice. My wife had the ravioli which she loved. The seafood and flavors are right up her alley. Nice portion sizes of each dish. Prices were a bit high but reasonable for a nice meal out, more expensive but akin to fine dining such as Brix 25 in Gig Harbor. We’d probably come here again for a nice meal out, but the dining credit certainly helped our decision and would likely flavor it again. More

Discover South of Seattle

Whether you're headed into or out of the city, there are many wonderful reasons to linger south of Seattle. The dining options here are more laid-back but with the same quality you'd expect in the big city. Classic American seafood is still in high demand, but the area also supports less common cuisines, like Caribbean and Thai. Get a real feel for the Pacific Northwest with locally sourced, award-winning chowders, or get a taste of something else entirely with island-inspired dishes like jerk chicken. Pan-Asian fare abounds. You'll have your choice of everything from traditional miso soup to Thai swimming rama.
