Seattle >Pasta Freska
Best Service and Best Italian Food anywhere!.
5 Star is no longer then standard, Pasta Freska raises the bar and exemplifies 10 star service!!! When we walked into the restaurant we were greeted by Chef Mike and his team of pasta professionals. We were expecting the typical spaghetti, linguini, etc... BUT NO! We were guided on a SURPRISE DINNER extravaganza! Each course was specifically prepared for us, from chicken marsala, eggplante parmesan, and the most wonderful seafood pasta dishes ever. The service was amazing, and chef Mike even took the time to sit at our table and enjoy a couple sips of his wine selection.
If your looking for a relaxing and affordable evening, then you've got to visit Pasta Freska and Chef Mike. Food excellent, and service superior! By the way, we tried chef Mike's lunch buffet recently. Got to say.....SIMPLY THE BEST! WE ARE NOW LOYAL PATRONS OF PASTA FRESKA! THE BEST.
A stinker of service. After going online and reading about Pasta Freska I was thinking it will be great. What a disappointment. But after reading the reviews about the service its soo true. The service is horrible. I waited for a table, there was 3 tables full. Then no water, the waitresses were so unfriendly. I thought I was a leper. Didn't even say hello, or welcome. It was like a tedious chore for them. And waited for the wine which had to ask numerous times for. I could have walked to the corner grocery to get a bottle. I will never eat there again.
Bad Service at Pasta Freska. The food is good but the service is absolutely terrible. This restaurant claims to take reservations yet they don't honor them. We waited for over an hour for our "reserved" table. What's the point in taking reservations? After standing for an hour, we were finally seated. None of the servers described what would come next. Friends had told me about it but I expected our server to give us an overview of how everything worked. Our wine glasses were empty and I had to ask several times for our drinks. The meal started out ok...but then we a 30 minute lull between courses. Water was never refilled so we did it ourselves. Overall, a terrible experience.
Good food, terrible service. This was a first time visit to the restaurant and we decided to go for lunch during the week just to try something new. We went all the way through the restaurant to the opposite door before we found someone who worked there and then we had to ask her if we could sit anywhere or be seated. After sitting we were informed that they "ran out of menus". After looking around the practically empty restaurant we inquired about what our ordering options were, which was the buffet or they could make us something. I'm not sure what they could have made since we had no menu or list of ingredients to choose from. So, we got the buffet, which was actually very good considering it had probably been out for awhile. After sitting and eating we never saw our waitress again and got passed up numerous times for more water. When we were ready to leave we not even presented with our check after they cleared our plates. We had to go to the register to pay, which is fine except we saw someone in the table next to us pay their check that was brought to the table, so we waited extra time for our check to be brought. I guess it just seems like too much of an effort for a simple meal at lunch that is supposed to be fast and stress free.
Where has this place been all my life?!?!. Praise God and pass a fork! I am sick and tired of fast food and get-you-in get-you-out restraunts. No taste, no service and no value makes me resist going out. But now I have found Pasta Freska. My wife and I recently went for an anniversary dinner on the suggestion of a friend. The servers were very attentive. The menu (or lack of one) was an excellent switch from the norm. The meal was beautifully (and slowly) paced. We were never rushed, which allowed us to thoroughly enjoy the meal and each other. The wine chosen for us was excellent as well. Appetizer, Salad, two courses, dessert plate, bottle of wine, plus complimentary liquers (after the chekc was paid) cost us $104.00 total, including tip and tax. THIS IS A STEAL IN MY BOOK! Seattle needs to relax, enjoy the lost art of eating and support restaruants like Pasta Freska!!
Best Italian food in Seattle.
I dine at Pasta Freska once a week. Have ALWAYS had excellent service, great & wonderful food. The Chicken Marsala is to die for ...
So what if there is no menu? its exciting, just need to chill out & have FUN !!!! People are so controlling just sit back and relax with a glass of wine.
However I was there when this obnoxious couple came in and the woman was SO MEAN to the waitress, good riddance. I hope your date dumped you.
And now she is running all over town, saying what bad service she had, and NOT the case. Maybe she needs a class in how to be nice to employees, and obviously has poor customer service skills... she belongs at a place with no class like a Greasy Truck Stop Diner.
PASTA FRESKA IS VERY CLASSY ELEGANT PLACE...
Everyone needs to experience PASTA FRESKA !!!
My favorite Italian food in Seattle!. For people who live in large cities and get out and about, this restaurant is for you. If you are going to complain about paying $30.00 for a decent bottle of wine that is hand picked by a restaurant owner and a "different" dining experience that exudes service and style unlike your typical suburbia chain restaurants.... please do not take up a table at this place. This is an Italian place and dinners are served at an Italian pace. Expect to spend 2 hours eating great dishes, drinking good wine and being served by people who actually know how to run a great neighborhood joint! I would eat there every night if I could!
Great for a night out with friends!. I was here with a party of six people and we had a wonderful time. We sat outside on the upper deck and relaxed over a great meal and several bottles of wine. It was a lot of fun to have them surprise you with different dishes and courses and the service was very friendly!
While on vacations we discovered a gem!.
It's been almost 2 month since our vacation, but I had something pending...write this! On our vacation through Seattle and other places, we found just by chance this great place. I took us by surprise the fact that there was no dinner menu...we were kind of weird out by it until we realized that we were in for a real treat. The food, wine, service....everything is just awesome and we had just the best time. The very best dinning experience during our stay in Washington. If we would have known of you guys, we wouldn't have paid for such an expensive and horrible dinner at the space needle. You guys are the best and I hope you stay around for our next visit... We have recommended your place to many of our friends....

not just a meal, a great experience!.
We just got back from Italy and found the best Italian food right here in Seattle! My husband is an ex-chef and we were both blown away with the service, presentation, personal attention and above all, the exquisite meals. It is a completely different dining experience with each course tailor made for each person at the table. I told them I was on Atkins and they accomodated each of us accordingly and beautifully. Each course a wonderful surprise. I have recommended this restaurant to everyone I know and they have all thanked me. And the bill was less than I expected.
