The Pink Door Review

With its Post Alley entrance and meager signage, the Pink Door's speakeasy vibe draws Pike Place Market regulars almost as much as its savory, seasonal Italian food does. In warm months, outdoor dining in Seattle doesn't get much better than the ample deck here, with its shaded grape arbor and views of Elliott Bay. The food is good, and the pappardelle al ràgu Bolognese (with slow-simmered meat sauce) and cioppino are standout entrées, but people come here mostly for the atmosphere. The whimsical bar is often crowded, the staff is saucy and irreverent, and cabaret acts regularly perform on a small corner stage in the lounge.

    The Pink Door Review

    This is a very odd place to eat. We have been to the Pink Door on two separate trips, and I would have to classify our experience as "inconsistent". The experience, depending on when you go, is a mix of dining and trapeze show. The trapeze is kind of fun, but can be too up close - you may have to move your seat mid-meal so you aren't in the way of the show. The room tends to be quite dark - wait staff carries mini flashlights so you can read the menu, and hot in the summer. Our first experience with no show, and ordering cioppino was great. The second visit with the show, and with pasta was less appealing.
