Dining at The Pink Door

I love restaurants with atmosphere. The Pink Door in downtown Seattle has it. If you’re in the Pike place Market area and want to relax and people watch, make a reservation for dinner.

The restaurant is tucked away in Post Alley. The door is a much paler pink that you’d expect from a place that named itself after the door. When you walk in, you’ll descend a flight of stairs as you overlook the dimly lit restaurant. In the second half of the space, you’ll see a door to a patio with great views of Puget Sound. The bar and a stage also occupy the back half of the restaurant. So be sure to sit up close if you want to catch the cabaret show or a jazz band.


I visited The Pink Door recently with friends. There’s something for everyone. The food is Italian-American. I had champagne and a delicious veggie pasta dish tossed with olive oil and pine nuts, but carnivores will love the meaty menu items. The desserts are decadent too.

It’s not a quiet place; it’s hopping, and relatively loud (the live Jazz was a welcome source of noise though). It’s a romantic as you want it to be, but if you’re not on a date, you won’t feel out of place.
