Seattle >Stumbling Goat Bar & Bistro
Still Great Lamb.
Used to go a bunch before the owner switch over. Loved the atmosphere and the food was clean, rich yet simple, and overall great.
Went here last week and I was very pleased. Service was solid and the lamb was still very tender and rich. Wine selection is still top notch.
Excellent for special occasions. My husband and I were in town from Portland for our anniversary and had researched dinner spots ahead of time. On a Sunday evening, it was quiet, but the staff was still attentive and very pleasant. The food was above and beyond our expectations. For the level of service and quality of the food, we would have expected, and have in the past, paid twice as much at bigger name restaurants. To say we had an excellent dining experience is an understatement and Stumbling Goat may just entice us to make the drive north again sometime!
excellent from start to finish.
I love to eat but i hate to cook. I feel fortunate that i live in a city that has a lot of great places to eat. I have never written about a restaurant before but i feel compelled to write about "the goat". Often times i go out to eat and there is one course that doesn't measure up to the rest. I have never felt that way at the stumbling goat. Every bite that i put in my mouth is delicious, seasoned without being over engineered, interesting with out ostentation, it is down town food in an easy to get to, casual & comfortable room.
The salads are great, the entrees are as well, the cheese plate is my favorite in town and changes often and the desserts are to die for. I always feels welcomed by the staff and owners and Cheeto in particular is attentive, knowledgeable and fun. There i said it! Great service and killer food.
We had the most amazing hanger steak -- always go with the chef's recommendation: medium rare.
Top to bottom -- a good experience! They treat their people well and it shows in the food and the service.
I'd go back any time of the week, except Mondays -- they're closed.
Great Job Stumbling Goat!!!. My friend and I had the perfect meal at Stumbling Goat. She had the braised rabbit and I had the tenderloin which was served with fig - my fav! The new owners of the Stumbling Goat are doing great things with the menu, featuring the foods of the season and incorporating these seasonal fruits, vegtables throughout the menu. I'll have to come back soon before the Sugar Pie Pumpkin Risotto is gone. Yum! I love fall foods!
Quite Possibly the Best Restaurant in Seattle.
Stumbling Goat Bistro was truly one of my most favorite dining experiences to date. The service was FABULOUS. Our waiter was knowledgeable, passionate about the food he serving, and just an overall jolly man. His joy for food was contagious. He was attentive but not over bearing.
The food is simple - but so unique! And the menu rotates depending on the season. It was so so delicious.
This is a perfect spot for a first date or a 10 year anniversary. And really, I would go here alone too. It is such a fabulous environment. Not only does the food taste wonderful, you feel like you're doing something good for your body and community.
WELL DONE Stumbling Goat. You guys are the best.
Wonderful, cozy and romantic..
Why is it that I am so good at reviewing places when we're out of town but I'm so lax when it comes to great spots in my own town? Well, I apologize to Stumbling Goat because this review is long overdue.
We're in the neighborhood and have walked by Stumbling Goat more times that I care to admit without going inside. We finally made a reservation and ventured in for a proper culinary experience recently, and I am so glad that we did!
The ambiance is wonderful, cozy and romantic without seeming overdone. At our romantic table for two, it felt like we were the only two people on the world (but that we did indeed have a great chef with us). The staff was helpful but didn't hover and every part of our meal was delectable....that's hard to find!
Now that we know it's in the neighborhood, we save our pennies for every opportunity to return to Stumbling Goat.
Everything was perfect. My husband and I felt instantly welcomed by the hostess and our waiter. He chose an excellent wine for us. Our meals were extremely tasty, perfectly seasoned, the meat perfectly cooked. My husband pointed out it's a good sign when you don't have to tell them how you want your meat, it just comes out right. Even though we were stuffed, we indulged in creme brulee and it was sublime. This is now one of our favorite restaurants.
Great Ambiance, Delicious Grub, and Fun Staff. Located on the main stretch of Phinney Ridge, The Stumbling Goat features some of the best comfort food in all of Seattle. I went with my wife and her 3 friends, and as "just one of the girls," our server enjoyed giving me a little good-natured ribbing, and didn't hesitate to be frank in his recommendations. Based on his raves, I ordered the lamb shank and it was absolutely the most delicous thing I've had in Seattle. Coming from the foodie capitol of the west (San Fran) to a good-but-not-great city like Seattle, I was very happy to find a place that reminded me of home in both a daring menu, competent and confident staff, and a dark and modern vibe throughout. I highly recommend this place as a date spot or a nice place to have conversation amongst good food and a pretty decent wine menu (although a little too pricey for drinks).
I love this place. I can't say enough about the quality of the food served here. It's local, organic when available and delicious. They steer toward comfort food but make it feel like gourmet food. My friend and I laughed mid way through the meal when we realized we were oohhing and aahhhing over essentially beef stew, roast chicken and mahed potatoes. But it's great, great quality, well seasoned, well thought out food combinations. It's a casual atmosphere and the staff is quite friendly and helpful in their recommendations. I would highly recommend the Stumbling Goat
