Review for Sammamish Galliano's.
Since City Search doesn't have the Sammamish location yet I had to use the Tukwila one.
OK so first, I used to go to DCs all the time mainly because it was there but I didn't like any of the bartending staff...so I was glad when a new place opened up and was even more glad when they had new bartenders (and easy on the eyes too!). But then I saw Brian. And in his usual way he was chatting up people for upwards of 20-30 minutes at the booths and leaving the other bartender to pour drinks for everyone (servers and the other customers in the bar that weren't being monopolized by Brian. And by the way...he's not that interesting.)
I was very happy that the new bartenders (Todd and Adam ) worked the weekends because that was when I came in the most. But now I see that more DC staff returning and Todd was "no longer here". WTH? At least Adam was still there.
So on to my positive review for Todd even though he's not there anymore. He is a master drink maker. He was very attentive and super nice.
Adam is the same way. He always has a smile for everyone who walks in, can always recommend the perfect drink and when I ask him to "surprise me" he does. Consistantly.
So all in all...it's a great bar...when Brian isn't there. :)
