Indulge yourself. Until the cows come home.
by Jerry P.
It is a destination. Incomparable ambiance and great food. I love their Caesar salad and how they do it in front of you and the cheese/fruits/nuts tray to end an amazing dinner. Never disappointed.

Sweet Jesus order the Oysters Rockefeller!
by Nick S.
I am a Seattle native and this is by far my favorite restaurant. Start with oysters and let the wine captain pick your wine, trust him he knows what's good.
by Meghan D.
Best restaurant in seattle.

They prepare the bananas foster right in front of you. It's the choice dessert.

Found Bananas Foster as Yum Yum. Try it and dish on it at http://dishonit.com
Amazing drinks from the bar. Ordered a 82$ steak medium, and got it well. Everything else was delightful though.

Seattle’s original El Gaucho was part speak-easy and part Hunt’s breakfast club. That was 1953 and it was run by Jim Ward. By 1985 that era had come to end.
Get the steak sandwich on HH
by Jon F.
Best. Burger. Ever.
by Dan W.
Amazing HH deals!
by Michael E.
In the dimly lit, cabaret-like ambiance, a vodka cocktail can cost up to $22. A porterhouse: $65. More of an expense-account and celebratory-steak-dinner kinda place. Happy hour: Su-M 5-11 & T-F 5-7
