  1. Not fine dining, but great food and a great atmosphere at Delancey's in Ballard. My favorite restaurant in the Seattle area.

    1415 NW 70th St, Seattle, WA 98117

    1. Check out the Waterfront Seafood Grill - good steak (rib steak is excellent) and seafood, good service. Downtown you have your pick of steak places - the Met is the best local one...but there are also chains including Ruth's Chris, Morton's, Sullivan's, Capital Grill, and El Gaucho. You may also want to check out Canlis.

      As much as I love Delancy, it's probably not what you're looking for (it's a really tasty pizza place).

      Canlis Restaurant
      2576 Aurora Ave N, Seattle, WA 98109

      Waterfront Seafood Grill
      2801 Alaskan Way, Seattle, WA 98121

      1. Although the rest of the menu can be hit or miss, I really like the sable fish preparation at Ray's Boathouse.

        6049 Seaview Ave., Seattle, WA 98107

        1. re: Lauren

          Just had that dish on Tuesday at Ray's Cafe and it was delish. Sat out on the deck and OMG did it get cold! Never have eaten downstairs, so I can't comment on the "finer dining" Rays...but if you want a true Northwest experience, get a table on the deck, wrap yourself in a fleece blanket and have some wine, chowder and fish!

        2. If you like sustainable, organic local cuisine, try Tilth or Stumbling Goat.
