            Echo yes on The Herbfarm and September would be the perfect time to go - harvest of so many things seasonal, including their herb garden! It is a wonderful experience, worth the drive from downtown to Woodinville.

          2. Salumi
            Palace Kitchen
            Inn at Langley

            1. union
              cafe juanita is NOT in seattle!

              1. Mistral - custom made meal, no menu.
                Rover's - leisurely french meal, great wines, a sense of home-cooking, if you lived in a mansion.
                5 Spot - lowkey diner with new regional menu every 6 weeks.

                    Mmm, Paseo's. I'm getting lunch there tomorrow.

                    Matt's in the Market


                    1. re: bergeo

                      Paseo's dinners are also good, and a bargain.

                    2. Saladman, judging by your list of top 5 restaurants (which indicate a penchant for hearty/ Italian/ steak), i think you might enjoy Barolo, Tulio, Cafe Juanita (in Kirkland)...consider also Waterfront Grill if you're looking for some straightforward seafood/steak PS. i'm not a Harvest Vine fan (ymmv)
