What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
9.2

The Pink Door is part circus burlesque, part Italian restaurant, and is one of the best dining experiences you can have in Seattle.

Ratings 9.0-9.8:If the 8.5-9.0s are the restaurants you’ll frequent for more than just special occasions, the 9.0-9.8s are the all time great restaurants of their city. Restaurants that will be around 20 years from now, assuming the Earth is still around.

Great experience and ambiance. Food was delicious, but not cheap. The restaurant wished me a happy anniversary with my SO and brought us small glasses of champagne, through our OpenDoor res. Excellent touch!

The place exuded freshness in every aspect and tender loving care. My sister and I were visiting Seattle-this place is a definite, "we have to go back". Esp. for the aerialist.

We were seated by the window facing pike market and the water, which was fantastic! The lighting and candles in the room were nicely adjusted.
Food wise it was kind of mediocre. We actually liked trout which was the fish of the day. However, there was too few choices on the menu. Maybe the appetizers and desserts were just not cater to our taste.

This was our second visit and (like the first), it was fab! The menu suited all 4 guests, (and I have dairy/gluten sensitivities). The food is beautifully presented and very tasty - the tuna appetizer is delicious, and the roasted garlic - fantastic. Our main courses, again, were very flavorful... linguine with clams, trout, and Branzino Style white fish... amazing!
Lola, who was our server/adviser for the evening is wonderful, very engaging, funny, amiable and wonderfully professional... attentive but not intrusive...
There was no rushing us out of the door and we enjoyed a great evening.
Well worth the visit - just do it! You won't regret it...

We had a wonderful experience as usual, but my dairy allergy limited my choices and my entree was uninspired. Despite that, we all really enjoyed ourselves and look forward to returning.

Pink Door is one of my favorite date places in Seattle. The Puget sound view from this restaurant is mesmerizing. There are good vegetarian options and the vegetarian Lasagne was my favorite. Their live music is amazing. I have visited this place before and it never disappoints.

Great food, great service. I've been coming here for over 10 years and take all my out of town friends here as well. This holiday season has been hard (my dad passed away suddenly) and we almost skipped celebrating all together. Instead we went here, to the restaurant him and I found together and were greeted like family. Our waitress was wonderful, and the food was (as always) perfect.

The restaurant is not easy to recognize since they don't have any sign outside and only a pink door. They have great atmosphere because of the live house performance. However, the food portion is a little bit small.
