Anniversary Dinner in Seattle

  • 9

I am going to be coming back from Iraq for our anniversary. I've booked the Waterfront Marriott. The questions is: where should I go for dinner? The first things to pop into my mind were the Waterfront Seafood Grill, Matt's at the Market, and Canlis. Other recommendations are appreciated. While a view is nice, food is first as I should get plenty of the view from the Marriott. I am a Seattle native, but my wife is not and has not had much dining experience there.

  1. Chez Shea, Joes. Very good food. Same building as Matt's in the Market - just at the far end of the hall - same floor. Romantic setting. It could be perfect for a sentimental night. Enjoy!

      Agree completely. Ask for a table along the windows.

        The Pink Door was very good when we dined there in May. It is located near Pike Place Market. We also loved our meal at Anchovies and Olives. :)

        3. What's your budget? There's a big gap betwen Chez Shea (which I agree is a nice romantic spot with good food) and Canlis (which is amazing, but also amazingly expensive).

          1. re: Tom Armitage

            Seeing as how I've been saving every dime I've been earning this year, I don't mind spending a little before I start eating dust again. That said, I don't want something ridiculously expensive. I've had some $15 steaks that beat anything I've ever had from any of the "good" steak houses for $70+.

            1. re: Tom Armitage

              Chez Shea is a nice place to relax and enjoy good food in a quiet, unhurried atmosphere. You are staying only a dozen blocks away; a nice walk. From there, too, it's a short stroll to Zig-Zag, for cocktails, or any number of bars, pubs. theaters, and entertainment venues.
              Take care of yourself, and thank you for your service.

            2. Crush. How to Cook a Wolf. Corson Building. Tilth. Dahlia Lounge. I think they represent Seattle cuisine well.
