Customer Reviews

Our small law firm (20 people) held our annual holiday party here last night, and it was fantastic. We had a four-course dinner lasting about three hours, and everything from the service to the food to the wine, could not have been better. Our employees raved about the food in particular. The atmosphere is elegant but with a relaxed, romantic, and yet modern vibe. I was the "party planner," and thus made the reservation and selected the various courses, and so I want to mention that the restaurant did an excellent job of communicating with me about all the details in advance, which helped make the night a seamless success. We give Barolo the highest recommendation and look forward to dining there again soon!

Barolo is one of those rare finds that you want to keep a secret so they always have a table for you, but is so good that you can't help spreading the word about them in spite of yourself. Their seasonal offerings are amazing. Their kitchen is probably one of the best in Seattle at preparing seafood, which, in this city, says a lot. Their pasta is gorgeous, their sauces are perfect, and their portions are generous (for a gourmet restaurant). They have a wonderful happy hour (if you can get a seat in the always-packed bar) and are excellent for a business lunch. It gets low-lit and romantic for dinner, and they have impeccable service and an impressive wine list. I have never had a bad experience there and will continue to go there every chance I get.

Absolutely amazing. Our server was very attentive and knowledgable about the menu and wines. The food was incredible. We ordered the foie gras and calamari apps. Both were beyond perfectly cooked and delicious. The flavors in the foie gras were beautifully accented by the sauce and white beans. I got the filet mignon as my entree and it was the steak that dreams are made of. I ordered it rare and it was obviously quickly seared and allowed to rest which really showcased the kitchen staffs care and attention to detail. My husband ordered the veal ossobucco and it was phenomenal. Our bill came to $165 and I would have paid double that for the impeccable food and service. The best restaurant in Seattle!
