Capitol Hill (Seattle) short notice weekend dining

  • 7

Where can we go (party of six) for good food but without advance reservations on a Saturday or Sunday around Capitol Hill?

  1. Harvest Vine on Madison--you can probably get seating at the big communal table downstairs.

    On 19th: Vios (903 E. 19th). Also on 19th: Monsoon--probably after 8:30 (good food, slow service).

    For pho (Vietmanese Soup), the dependable Than Bros. on Broadway. Also on Broadway, any of the Thai places on the north end, not far from the Harvard Exit theater.

    1. Charlies is good,its not spectacular.It's kind of like a gourmet Sharies,but consistant,not sure if you need reservation,we never did and I used to go there alot but we only had 2 or 3 people.

        1. Thanks for your replies. Anything on Broadway?

            I like Pho Cyclo on Broadway across the street from the Harvard Market QFC. Awesome pho and good selection of standard vietnamese dishes. Pretty cheap too!

            1. Monsoon was a good suggestion, but I do think that the rest of the posts were a bit harsh on the hill. There are a fair number of good places, depending on what you're in the mood for. Tango and Rosebud are good places for a small group, and the food is generally pretty good, if not brilliant. The Garage has decent food, as odes 22 Doors up on 15th. La Spiga is great, as is Via Tribunale for excellent pizza. There's also Galerias for decent Mexican in a pretty setting. And there's always Broadway Grill, which, if you're interested in a place where a group of six can hang out and have a decent burger or salad, is not a horrible choice.
