2 nts in seattle

My husband and I are finishing a trip thru British Columbia with 2 nights in Seattle. We love seafood, and great food of all kinds, upscale casual, nothing "stuffy". Price is not a problem, but we prefer to have reservations, he is not big on waiting. Also, hour hometown has fab Italian, so we shy away from it when traveling.

I was thinking about Dahlia Lounge
Sitka and Spruce

these are dinners. For lunch we will do Matts and Elliots for oysters. Should we do Elliots for dinner?

Great atmosphere, fun or great view helps make the night.

    Skip Elliots for dinner as they are not the caliber of the other restaurants you mentioned. You will have an excellent view at Canlis but it will cost you. However, if I were to have only 2 dinner meals in Seattle, I would make one of them at Long's Provincial.

      If possible, try Elliott's for happy hour!

        If you are looking for a Tom Douglas place I would do Lola's over Dahlia. They take reservations and it is fun. Also a good place for breakfast. Canlis is great as is Poppy. If you are looking for a nice view and good seafood you can get reservations at Ray's downstairs.
