Another amazing dinner here last evening! The food and service are flawless. If you go a bit early, the happy hour (5-6) is a sweet way to begin the evening. I would categorize the menu as French/American, with a wine list featuring lovely, affordable French wines.

The only downside to our visit was we waited over an hour before we got any food. I don't mind waiting for an excellent meal but at least provide something to nibble on with the wine or beer. We did the price fixe menu and began with Taramsolata - Capers - Onion - Dill – Sea Wolf Rye (they didn't... More

Found this place by accident, but glad we did. Quirky location with the restaurant split into 2 rooms of what looks like a former warehouse. Menu was limited, but had some great brunch and lunch options. Clearly a focus on the seasonal and local. I had the duck Benedict, another friend had the steelhead and, to be honest, I can't...

Earlier in the month I had reason to have a family gathering, with family coming from Europe and The East Coast. These are people who like good food and some them have experienced the best the world has to offer. My family is the local branch so we are not formal people. I wanted to find a place that would...

Great food and fantastic experience, food was good but plates small and expensive. Nice funky atmosphere but ritzy style and those small artsy plates

We visited the Olympic Sculpture park and found this restaurant nearby. There was not an easy path to get from the park to the restaurant, but the meal was worth it. Service and food was excellent and reasonably priced. Highly recommended!

Met a friend at the Boat Street. A little difficult to locate, it's down a ramp-way and to the right. It was a beautiful warm Saturday morning and we decided to sit on the patio. Enjoyed a light breakfast with fresh strawberry scone and egg white omelet with ham. Tasty. Shared the small drip coffee...STRONG! Good service, tasty food and... More

Had Mother's Day Brunch. French Provincial food with a Pacific Northwest flair. Menu was diverse enough for a brunch that everyone was happy and well fed. One of the best Bread Puddings I have had in a long time. Wait staff very polite and efficient. I would definitely go there again.

It reviews so well that I thought I would grab brunch here this morning. It starts poorly with another patron getting shoo'd out the door (which was open) because they only open at 10:30. His watch said 10:29, mine 10:28. The menu comes with a rather wordy list of warnings and admonishments at the bottom....yeah...ok. 25 mins from seating to... More

We went to Seattle for a little break, but my advanced Valentine's Day dinner planing was late. I couldn't get a reasonable time reservation in the 'normal' nice restaurants so off I went to find something new. And we found the Boat Street Cafe (Boat Street Kitchen). What a nice surprise. The restaurant is a little out of the way,... More
