Help on Dinner in the Queen Ann area of Seattle

I made a post eariler on what to get out our upcoming trip to Seattle. Thanks!

I now have to add a slight update. We are meeting some friends for dinner before the Springsteen show and we need a mid scale place for 7 not too far from the Key arena.

Any ideas,

Thanks again!

    1. re: staffstuff

      Buckley's is walking distance - pub style, reliable food. Call ahead, b/c they could be busy due to basketball. They will get you in and out in time for the concert.

      Via Tribunali on top of QA is a worthwile stop. Amazing neopolitan style pizza. Would have to drive from there to the Key, but only about a mile. I guess you could walk - it is downhill! Again, call ahead they are busy, even early, but definatley worth it!

    2. tworeally good restaurants on top of the hill are Betty and How to Cook a Wolf. I odn't think Wolf takes reservations though. you would probably have to repark form these places. every place will be crowded becaus eof the concert. there's Tup Tim Thai and Crow on lower Queen Anne.

      1. Dinner on top of QA, at any of the places already shared, would be my preference. I would park there and take a cab to the show. Wish I'd one that the last time we attended the theater.

        1. If you want walking distance to Key Arena, I would go to Moxie. If you just want to be near Key Arena, I would go to Portage - on the top of Queen Anne.

          1. I would also suggest Moxie. Killer food and you're not going to get gouged.
