  • Sullivan's Steakhouse
    Sullivan's Steakhouse: A User’s Guide Hand-Cut Steaks | Fresh Seafood | Classic Cocktails and Wine | Gluten-Free Options | Live Music Sample Menu Appetizer: oysters on the half shell Entree: dry-aged new york strip Side: three-cheese macaroni with a garlic-butter crust Dessert: bananas foster bread pudding Where to Sit: If you'd like privacy to propose to your partner—or to discuss a proposal with your business partner—request to be seated in one of the high-backed booths. Special Events Every Tuesday evening, one of Sullivan's sommeliers guides guests through curated tastes of wines and beers paired with bites from the menu. They're occasionally joined by local winemakers and brewers. In addition to daily happy-hour specials, the restaurant also offers late-night delights for night owls or actual owls who enjoy blue-cheese meatballs. There's a prix fixe menu year-round, but Sullivan's also sometimes adds seasonal tasting menus—for example, the Summer Fling menu pairs an 8-ounce fillet with a Maine lobster. With live music performances nearly every night, diners don't just have to be entertained by busboys melodically clanking stemware together while clearing tables. Vocab Lesson Rib-eye steak: a tender, flavorful cut of beef from the rib section that is prepared either bone-in or boneless. Steak oscar: steak served with toppings of crabmeat, asparagus, and a creamy sauce—either hollandaise or béarnaise.

  • Palisade - Seattle - RUI
    Palisade: A User’s Guide Upscale Surf and Turf | Live Dungeness Crabs | Waterfront Dining | Affordable Prix-Fixe Lunch | Indoor Fish Pond Sample Menu Appetizer: teriyaki tenderloin Surf: crab-stuffed jumbo prawns Turf: spit-roasted prime rib Dessert: salted-caramel ice cream with granola and caramelized bananas Where to Sit: The 180-degree wall of windows overlooking Elliott Bay ups your odds of nabbing a stunning waterfront view. But the rest of the dining room offers its own picturesque scenes including a fish pond replete with a babbling waterfall. When to Go: Budget-conscious diners can score the same incredible views and fresh seafood during affordable prix-fixe lunches or “first seating” dinners held before the evening rush. While You’re Waiting: Order a classic cocktail cooled by one of Palisade’s signature ice spheres, which are designed to melt slower and chill drinks longer than traditional cubes. Inside Tips Although all of Palisade’s seafood is fresh, the dungeness crab might just be the freshest of all—the kitchen stores them live in a 600-gallon tank. Because it’s nestled in the harbor, this restaurant can be a tad difficult to find. Call ahead for directions. While You’re in the Neighborhood By land: Stroll through the 12 acres of greenery that make up Magnolia Park (1461 Magnolia Boulevard W.), admiring clear views of Puget Sound. By sea: Take a sunset cruise courtesy of Far Niente Sailing Charters (2601 West Marina Place).

  • Salty's On Alki
    The Three Faces of Salty's on Alki Gorgeous Views Despite there being three restaurants, each Salty's boasts a waterfront view. The Seattle location looks out on Elliott Bay and the city's skyline, the Redondo Beach location has views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains, and the Portland spot oversees the Columbia River. And customers don't have to fret about getting a window spot—the spectacular sights are viewable from nearly every seat in the house. Tons of Awards About the only thing longer than the menu is the list of awards. A plethora of critics and publications have heaped praise on Salty's on Alki, naming it everything from the Best Place to Bring a Date (West Seattle Hearld) to Best All-You-Can-Eat Buffet (Seattle Weekly). Wine Spectator has given the Seattle location an Award of Excellence every year from 2003–2013, and Seattle Magazine also named that branch the restaurant with the best view from 2009–2011. Sunday Brunch Salty's on Alki’s brunch, replete with a huge all-you-can-eat buffet, has been lauded by publications ranging from OpenTable to Seattle Magazine. It’s not hard to see why. Every Sunday (and Saturday at the Seattle and Portland locations), the staff situates trays and trays of prawns, salmon, dungeness crab, oysters, and other fresh seafood next to made-to-order omelet stations, waffle bars, hand-carved meats, and every dessert Betty Crocker could ever imagine. It's even got a make-your-own bloody-mary bar, where patrons can whip up custom hangover cures.

While You're in the Neighborhood Before: Scope out the 360-degree view of Seattle from the periscope at the top of the Museum of History & Industry (860 Terry Avenue, Lake Union Park).

  • Jak's Grill
    The Three Faces of Jak’s Grill Buzz-Worthy Happy Hour The doors aren’t even open when the crowds start to gather for happy hour at Jak’s Grill. The West Seattle location only has 20 seats, and come 4:30 p.m., the scramble can resemble a game of musical chairs. If you’re lucky enough to nab a seat, you’ll be treated to a full hour of food and drink specials. The Jak’s burger is the top-ranking item on this truncated menu, described by the Seattle Times as “the kind of burger your neighbor grills on the Weber during the July Fourth weekend.” The smokey half-pound patty is topped with the basics: tomato, lettuce, and onions, with cheese available for an extra dollar. Beef Done Right Burgers aren’t the only well-grilled treat on Jak’s menu. You’ll also find prime top sirloin, new york strips, and even filet mignon—all aged a minimum of 28 days and cooked simply without pretension. And while you won’t get an elaborate plating or fancy garnish, you will get a bearnaise or demi-glace, a large cut of steak, and hearty portions of salad, veggies, potatoes, and fresh bread to round out your meal. Weekend Brunch Weekend brunches also bring long lines to Jak’s reservation-free dining rooms. During this time, you can nab a burger, a steak sandwich, or a jazzed up breakfast benedict served atop Jak’s famous potato pancakes. As if that weren’t enticement enough, a brunch happy hour rewards early birds with discount mimosas and breakfast basics.

  • El Gaucho
    Five Things to Know About El Gaucho El Gaucho is the flagship location of a hospitality empire that now includes five beloved restaurants, a catering company, and a luxury hotel. Original founder Paul Mackay set out to create an upscale steakhouse where every aspect of the service makes guests feel like a VIP. Find out more about what sets El Gaucho apart from Seattle dining: The 28-day dry-aged Niman Ranch certified Angus beef steaks and certified Angus beef tenderloin filets might be the stars of the menu. . . . . . but vegetarians aren’t left out, either. El Gaucho’s vegetarian menu includes truffle linguini, roasted sweet corn, and nine other elegant dishes and sides. Dinner can be a show. Guests can catch a glimpse of their steaks as they’re cooked on a charcoal grill in the open, exhibition-style kitchen. Tuxedo-clad servers bring the show to diners as well with tableside preparations for certain dishes, such as the chateaubriand center-cut tenderloin or the freshly flambéed bananas foster. Don’t expect much of a view, though. El Gaucho doesn’t have any windows, and that’s by design. Mackay wanted guests to feel like they’re transported into a whole different world where their every need is cared for. Hit up happy hour for the best deals on a pricey menu. With steaks ranging in price from $37–$145, a meal at El Gaucho can be expensive. Nightly happy hours give diners a chance to enjoy steak sandwiches, tenderloin sliders, and signature cocktails without breaking the bank completely.
