**** (4 stars)

This place is an excellent choice for a meal that will entertain the kids and provide credible food for the adults. The decor is a step beyond Rainforest Cafe-level (although the animation of the dinosaurs is not going to challenge Disney). The menu is typical sports bar plus some larger plates, and the service is good. It's large and fairly noisy, but so are dinosaurs.

This is a review of the food truck, which was parked near Pike Place Market at at 4th and Pine. Very good pork and chicken pastor tacos, served with lime and your choice of mild or spicy sauce. Three to an order, and one tortilla per taco, so more fork food that hand held.

***** (5 stars)

This beautiful old house is the setting for a terrific dining experience, and also Oregon's largest pinot noir collection.

We opted for the tasting menu, which consisted of more than a dozen different items, many emphasizing mushrooms. Our favorite courses included the mushroom trio (especially the soup and the tart), the A5 Wagyu, the dual gazpacho intermezzo, and the spectacular dessert plate.

Service was very professional and welcoming, and the wine list is certainly spectacular.

Charming atmosphere, great service, and some stellar dishes. We particularly enjoyed the mushroom appetizer, with its rich, creamy sauce, perfect for dipping the accompanying toast, and also the bread. Not a drop was left!

Excellent wine list, and very helpful advice from the sommelier.

A great spot for a relaxing evening of excellent food and drink in cozy ambiance.

Very cozy, welcoming restaurant that offers both counter and table seating for (currently) a five-course set menu. It's really more courses than that, as there is also a two-part amuse bouche and and intermezzo.

Highlights on our particular night were the various sauces and compotes, the sorbet and intermezzo, the succotash that accompanied the salmon, and the carbonated(!) blueberries. Lowlights were the rather tough duck breast.

A wine pairing option perfectly matched each dish, with some interesting and surprising selections.

Services was friendly, precise, and professional.

This spacious restaurant is doing a great job with breakfast. I really liked by Breakfast tac, which was essentially an open fast breakfast burrito. Nice crispy bacon and a delicious smoke salsa to accompany it.

The pancake side was also excellent, with a slightly crisp edge, and ample maple syrup and butter.

You order at a counter and they bring the food to the table.

A big, airy place with friendly service.

This place is hilarious! It's all just one huge joke at the level of thirteen year old humor, and it's wonderful. The fact that every employee is so engaging and in on the joke makes it all the more fun. There's good stuff to eat, funny photo opportunities, a large gift shop, children's play area, and of course the opportunity to bring friends gifts that have passed through Uranus!
