Seattle >Sazerac Restaurant
Not impressed. Hostess was unhelpful, so we sat in the bar, our waitress was slow and inattentive. The menu is kind of strange, not a lot of things to pick from, and a lot of it is trendy foo-foo crap that you've never heard of. Overpriced and portions were small.
Bland, Bland, & Disappointing.
I went here based on a coworkers recommendation, but was thouroughly disappointed. My "tangerine buerre blanc crabcakes" had no hint of tangerine, but did have a strange cinnamon-esque spice mixed with the crab-- a bad taste which overpowered any dungeness taste there would have been.
The caesar salad dressing is bland, and the lettuce is served whole leaf style, you cut it up yourself, most inconvenient during a business lunch. Lunch service was slow, and my drink wasn't refilled until I was ready to leave. What a disappointment!
Join in the N'awlins-style frolic in this swank-yet-goofy hotel restaurant in the heart of downtown..
Big booths, bright colors and sweet Southern accents on a strangely high percentage of the waitstaff add up to relaxed, fun atmosphere. The signs order diners to "shut up and eat," but with so many dishes sized for sharing, expect plenty of conversation. Servers check in regularly and keep everyone happy with sincere recommendations, flirty smiles and regular refills.
While the menu changes frequently, one thing is consistent: Every little thing is house-made. An outstanding ingredient is the andouille sausage; try it on a thin, crisp pizza or in a thick, rice-filled gumbo. Cornmeal-coated catfish is tender, and the fresh-ground burger is wonderfully juicy; a creamy vegetarian choice involves soft dumplings, artichoke hearts, peas, mushrooms and plenty of butter. It's imperative for chocolate lovers to save room for the warm pudding cake topped with fresh cream.
Values their customers. We had a very large group for dinner on a Wednesday night. However, every item and second-choice item our table asked for was out.. this was on top of the exceptionally long wait time for our wine and dinner choices. However, not only did the manager offer her apologies, the meal and wine was on the house. When we finally did get a meal and a bottle, it was certainly mouth-watering. The food was excellent and the attention the staff gave to making our nights memorable as a great (as opposed to tortorous) experience motivated all of us to return with a larger crowd and larger tips.
Drinks & apps are great, the meal was average.
The appetizers are creative and colorful. The drink menu had a great unique selection (vanilla lemon drop!). After having some hush puppies and oysters, I was certain that Alexandria's may be replaced for our favorite cajun in Seattle.
Then dinner came... such a let down. It's not that it was bad, but it certainly paled in comparison to the appetizers and drinks. The 4 of us tried 3 dishes. I had the beef tenderloin, which i would suggest but the blue cheese au gratin potatoes were tasteless. My buddy had the ribs, which had little meat but he liked the sauce. The ladies had the flash fried catfish, which was the best of the meals but still nothing to write home about.
Service was not only prompt but incredibly pleasant. I'll probably go back and try lunch, the staff alone have inspired me to try it again.
another whacky place. It seems as if the theme of seatle is to have a whacky place serving contemporary American food (see other reviews). This place was actually a bit more sophisticated than the university based eatery. Service was very professional and attentive. The food was really good. Pork back ribs were excellent and my husbands ham and cheese macaroni was whimsical and interesting. Pretty good place in a neat setting. We would recommend it to any friends coming into town.
Great Food Great Service!. We had a wonderful time at this restaurant! From the moment we stepped in we were greated by extremely friendly waitstaff/host etc and never felt ignored. The food was incredible! I recommend the ribs while my husband loved the salmon with pancetta. Once again the service was great-prompt and attentive throughout the meal-very satisfying. Loved the new dessert menu. This place is lively and fun with a great menu, atmosphere and staff. Highly recommended!
Great Happy Hour!. Sazerac has an amazing happy hour! Great food, great drinks and great prices! We ordered a combo of items - chicken, fries, veggies, & pizza. Everything was really yummy! The only problem I had was the server's attitude. She seemed to be really mad to be working and was actually pretty rude to us. I'm hoping she was just having a bad day because I don't think all the servers are like that. But, the happy hour made up for her bitter attitude!
Sazeracs - Flatliners, Greg and Megan!.
Everyone visiting (or living near) Seattle should visit Sazeracs! You WILL come back! I highly recommend sitting at the bar and ordering a Flatliner -- Not only is this the best espresso drink made, but watching the bartender flame the drink and make sparks fly is worth the price of this delectable drink! Order one and you are quarenteed to feel special!!! After three years of testing, I can attest that no one makes a Flatliner as good as Sazeracs.
The food is excellent, creative, cooked exactly to order and has a beautiful presentation. This is only topped by the fantastic service!! Megan greeted us with such a genuinely warm welcome that we knew we would have an awesome evening. Greg, the bar manager, took excellent care of us that we had to stay at the bar!
Sazeracs, THANK YOU for such a memorable evening! Heres to many repeat visits!
