A Note about Spring Reservations:

LUNCH: Can't find what you're looking for?  We DO release additional reservations the DAY OF!  This is for those that are local, spontaneous, maybe a quick business lunch or just in the neighborhood. DAY OF reservations are typically seated in our view Dining Room, but feel free to make a request and we will do our best to accommodate you.

DINNER: Spring Dinner Reservations are seated in our Inside View Dining Room due to cool spring evenings… But if you prefer outdoor dining (and it’s early in the evening) make a note and we will do our best.

FULL OUTDOOR RESERVATION AVAILABILITY BEGINS IN JULY

The Pink Door is an independently owned (never cloned, never genetically modified) restaurant that has been quietly dedicated to fresh & local Italian food since 1981. Its seafood & produce driven menu has been the central theme throughout its wildly popular domain in Seattle's Pike Place Market.

What Insiders Are Saying

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.

The restaurant is a gem in Seattle! My parents and I found it by accident and thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Thomas, our server, was very knowledgeable, efficient, and on point. The ambience was comfortable and eclectic. The food was very good with some unexpected and welcome twists.

The Pink Door is very eclectic and the vibe is really unique and cool! Staff is accommodating and service is great. Our food was delicious. The fresh catch was exquisite. We were entertained by a sultry aerialist. Her exotic rope and hoop dan e was quite beautiful and sexy. This capped the outstanding experience we had here. I highly recommended next time you visit Seattle.

Loved the service and sunset view. Would recommend to go around 8:30-9 and take the waterfront seating to enjoy the sunset. I could not get a table while trying to make early booking so booked seat at the bar. On reaching there they adjusted for a table overlooking the sea. I got lucky and I thoroughly enjoyed the night.

Fantastic spot! Went on Sunday for dinner to celebrate graduation/fathers day. There was an aerial artist who performed three times during our meal (have to sit in “bar area”. Food and staff were superb! Worth waking up early and making the reservation a month prior. Will definitely be back! :)

I am so so happy I listened to other Yelpers and made this a "must go" on my trip to Seattle! We were only seeing the city for one day and with how in demand this place is, decided to go with a 3:00 pm early dinner reservation rather than wait for hours at peak time. It was perfect weather so we dined on the patio and it was literal perfection. Started off with an amazing bubbly glass of prosecco, then had the rigatoni with meatballs. So fresh and delicious. BUT my biggest advice is to GET THE RICOTTA CHEESECAKE. We asked for a side of strawberries with it. But it was the best thing I have ever tasted in my life. Packed with so much flavor, my friend literally drooled when she took the first bite. Didn't want it to end. They also put a little candle on it for my birthday - loved the acknowledgement! Thank you so much for a great time!

Hands down the food was amazing but our server, Hayley, definitely ruined our experience. My friend and I felt rushed and the service wasn’t personal nor anticipatory. Being in the service industry myself, I did not feel well taken care of.

It was a upbeat place. Very crowded with little space. Very loud. We liked the atmosphere though and the pretty flowers. It would probably be good to have a sign for the first timers or a brighter pink door because it was hard to find. The food was tasty and the dessert was yummy!

The staff was extremely accommodating when we asked to change seating and our server was kind enough to let us know that even though we’d be changing servers, they had a system so we did not have to tip servers separately. Have always been a fan of this place.

Our experience here was amazing to say the least! My husband and I came here for our anniversary and they sat us in what I would say was the best seat in the house to see the aerial performances. The performer was fantastic and very friendly. She came up and greeted us when she was finished with her performances. We started with oysters, then had the salmon (fish of the day), and finished with the chocolate mousse. Everything was delicious! We were so impressed with the service, food, and ambiance. We will definitely come here again!

We loved the Pink Door, once we found it! We aren't too familiar with downtown so we had to ask directions several times even with Google maps. The dining room is well appointed with a lovely view, and the food was delicious. The highlight however was our waiter. We were late arriving but he was patient, friendly and professional. A lovely experience for our group of 5. We will definitely return.

The food at The Pink Door is exquisite -- I've never eaten anything here that I didn't like! The ambience is also ideal for all occasions, making it a versatile and delightful venue for casual outings and formal celebrations alike!

I do have mixed reviews about customer service, though. Servers tend to be very friendly and attentive, but I've had issues with the hosts/hostesses on more than one occasion. During my most recent visit, my (large) party and I arrived a few minutes before our reservation time. The hostess was very rude and dismissive of us upon our early arrival. Furthermore, she made no effort to try to seat us together, even though I had called the restaurant TWICE ahead of time to verify that they could accomomodate us. We ended up having to sit at two separate tables, although they did seat us near each other.
