Looking for toddler-friendly AND delicious in Queen Anne

We just moved to the neighborhood and are looking for casual places we can eat out without wishing we'd stayed home. It's not worth it to us to eat out just to eat out, but if we can get a yummy meal and not worry that our energetic 2-year-old is out of place, all's well. I can tell Flame, Olympia, Queen Anne Cafe, Five Spot and that Italian place with the play area are kid-friendly—is the food any good? Conversely, I've heard nice things about the food and Chinoise and Emmer & Rye but don't know if it's right for a toddler.

Asian and pizza are probably our favorites, but we're open to anything.

  1. Via Trbunali, Chinoise, and 5 spot are kid friendly and decent food. Emmer not so sure. I am not wild about the food at the others you mention. Wolf great food, but not for kids.

    1. I have taken my kids to Emmer and Rye. they were pretty accomodating, but one of the few tables with kids there. They are also a bit older, so perhaps a bouncy 2 year old may be a little out of place....the staff will be accomodating, so maybe if you dined early.

      Chinoise, Orrapin and Ototo are great with kids, as is Via Tribunali. They are our mainstay places for grown up enjoyment with kids in tow.

      Ballard has some good family places, too.

      1. Enza's (the italian place w/ play area) is very good. They'll make kids food first, which is nice as well.

          Enza's is super kid friendly with a kids area.. As is Twirl, the cafe across the street, on Thursdays they are open late and you can let the kids run wild while you have a glass of wine and a sandwich.
          Toulouse Petit is okay to bring kids too.

        2. heh, I'd recommend getting something frozen at Eat Local and taking it home! :)
