Another West Seattle lame duck! – Gave it 2 tries! Failed both times. Poor service....lousy food! $25 for salmon and they overcooked even though I ordered it medium rare....poor salmon died for nothing!
Wassup with the antipasto – Like the ambiance a lot. The bartender is efficient. We bought the 12 dollar antipasto and they basically just took the stuff out of a jar and placed it on a plate. Some basil, oregano and/or garlic would have been nice. Doesn't make me want to order an entree if they take so little pride in their appetizers. Still, it's a cozy, nicely decorated place to have a drink.
Best restaurant in West Seattle now – I can see why 1 reviewer thought the service poor because the host has a "flat" demeanor, but, the rest of the staff was knowledgable, helpful and downright friendly. Plus, the food was stellar. Sea Bass was some of the best in town, period. Flank steak was tender and delicious if a bit spendy at $19. $13 pasta dish was the cheapest on menu, yet delicious.
Lackluster At Best – The tone is set at the door, with the owner/host not showing the least bit of happiness that you came to spend your money there. Followed by servers too busy to give you service, and food lacking any flavor or distinction. Flat food for way too much. Good luck
