Seattle >Table 219
Trouble Getting a Table if Your a Lone Female Diner. If you are a female, and dining alone at night, the restaurant manager will try to seat you back in the hinterlands in the bar instead of at a table. Looking around, you'll see all kinds of men dining alone at tables. It makes you wonder.........
I learned about Table 219 from their Groupon promotion which I finally used this past weekend. It is a fun little place on Broadway. The food and service were great. They have a selection of different sized plates which you can get for yourself or share with others.
My wild boar enchiladas were totally amazing, and the bread salad was great too. There were quite a few things on the menu I would have tried as well, but alas I will save them for another time.
The zucchini fries are awesome, btw
WHAT TOOK ME SO LONG TO FIND THIS SPOT?. A month ago my husband and I went on a walking date (we live on Capitol Hill) and strolled into Table 219 for the first time. We had such a GREAT meal and I was so pleasantly surprised by their menu. So many places these days feel like they have the exact same thing. The menu had creative offerings and everything we had was so tasty. Also really enjoyed Gary our host for the evening. Went back again this week for brunch with a friend and had an equally fantastic time. I'm hooked now. So great to find a new place in our neighborhood. Love it.
219 was fantastic. This was an amazing night with my wife. Truffle oil popcorn was so good. When I remarked on this to the server they brought us out another serving. I'm all about that. Deviled eggs were a surprise in there deliciousness but the duck confit nachos were just freakin' great. Round that out with a healthy pour into the wine glass and some of the better veal this world has to offer and we really had a great date night. We're taking friends back there. You should go.
What's not to Love?.
We went last night for my 42nd bday dinner before a night on the town and the staff was fantastic, handling our party of (get this) 16 without a sweat.
Those of my friends who had not been before are planning to go back immediately- we basically ordered most of the menu and shared, there wasn't a bad dish on the table, it was all top notch! The food, the service and the really fun and relaxed experience made for the BEST party!
Great neighborhood spot. Menu is interesting and the food well-prepared at this Broadway spot. Great people-watching from the tables by the windows, or the outdoor tables when the weather holds. The place closes pretty early though, making it a poor option for after-movie dining.
Disappointed.... My husband and I recently decided to try out a new breakfast spot for our anniversary. We arrived at Table 219 to have brunch last Saturday. We were seated fairly quickly by a grumpy waitress who didn’t say more than a couple of words to us. To say she was “unpleasant” would be an understatement. We both ordered off the menu and sat on the outdoor patio. Our food arrived and we couldn’t have been more disappointed. My husband ordered a fried egg, bacon and French Toast. It seemed like a great deal for all the food you get. The egg was tiny with two small pieces of burnt bacon with what looked like fried sourdough bread (French toast). It was not appealing. I ordered the Greek Omelet which sounded great from the description in the menu. It consisted of underdone / slimy eggs mixed with feta cheese. The “Greek” veggies was a tomato sauce with a few Kalamata olives and capers thrown in. It was cold and tasted like eggs drenched in cold salsa. It was disgusting. I would never go there again. Not sure where all the good ratings are coming from.
Example: great place for good bread. 4 of us went on Sunday for brunch. I was impressed by the choices on the menu, very creative and the combination of ingredients sound excellent (e.g. charizo + monchego or brie/apple/avocado omelets) The execution, however, wasn't as great as expected. We all thought our omelets were a bit too blend/dry, and the egg Benedict was just so-so. the yam fries were excellent, but everything else we ordered were just all right, 3-4 stars decent to good, but not 5-star "wow". would go back, but wouldn't consider in the same league as Cafe Besalu or 611 Supreme
very tasty food! smallish portions.
2 of us went for brunch on a saturday at noon, no wait which was great. service was attentive and we loitered for 2 hours after we finished without any type of complaint from the staff.
food was very good, their eggs benedict was fabulous and i'm not usually a fan of eggs. the sauce is a tangy tomato based sauce and the potato pancake as a base is such a clever touch. delicious. the french toast was also excellent, really nice flavors and definitely something special.
i will say that i thought the portions were a little small and the dishes come with no sides. ie, french toast was 3 pieces of bread and toppings. eggs benedict had 2 small pieces of bread and a wedge of fruit. i'm a small gal and i was satisfied but not overly full. i'm pretty sure my husband would have been hungry after one of those dishes and would've needed a side.
HI Sherleymark2003 - thank you so much for your gracious review. We truly appreciate it. Thanks for mentioning the food. Locally sourced and cooked with only the freshest ingredients, we traditionally get rave reviews and appreciate the feedback. We do have dishes with larger portions for the same price - please ask your server for guidance to that end the next time you visit us.
Thanks again - Sincerely, Gary and Stacey: Owners - Table 219 and Geraldine's
Worst Service I've ever seen. We had read good reviews of this restaurant for Sunday brunch, so we were excited to give it a try. After we were seated, a server brought us water. Then we waited, and waited, and waited. Not a single employee would make eye contact with us as we sat there and sat there, and sat there. As we sat there for almost 15 minutes without even getting menus, other people were seated, brought drinks, and ordered. In such a small place like this, it was just amazing - it was like we weren't there. Finally we just gave up and left. I don't support restaurants that have no respect for their customers.
Hi Kenny - we must say we are shocked and unsettled about hearing about such an experience. Sunday is the only day of the week both of us - Gary and Stacey - are not in the restaurants. This is something we addressed with our staff immediately after reading your review. As the owners, we are in the restaurants on a daily basis and have never encountered a table that has not been addressed or attended to. We apologize for the experience and hope we can make it up to you.
Sincerely - Stacey and Gary - Owners, Table 219 and Geraldine's
