What makes this place so great? I don't know if it is just the food or maybe the service or even the cook in the kitchen. Some how all of these things coming together in one space works incredibly well. Everyone seemed to actually care I was there. Was like being adopted for the evening.

Speaking of food, we enjoyed the rich crab gratin first and then shared a fabulous chop salad that was so simple it was amazing. For dinner we split two entrees. I had the perfectly cooked fresh salmon, still pink in the middle like it should be and crispy skin on the outside. My wife enjoyed the seared scallops, well she got a few bites that I didn't eat. I'm not sure where they get their desserts, but I'd like to find out. Our server presented us with a tray of tarts ranging from chocolate to salt to fruit stuffed. We went with a luscious chocolate one. I can't remember the name and I was told they change all the time. Who knows what we'll have to pick from next time.

I'm sure I could write all night, but I'll have to save something for next time.

I have to say 94's back wall is far more interesting and entertaining then the "gum wall". I think it should be deemed a new market landmark. 1000s appear to have left their messages about what they loved and some even disliked about 94. This was actually my first time there, but won't be my last. Turns out I've been walking right by them every week. That is one thing I love about the market, finding new things all the time. I've lived here three years and I don't think I've even seen it all yet. Next time you are at Pike Place stop in and leave your legacy and see what others left behind. Don't worry, it won't turn your stomach like the "dna" wall as I like to call the mess of gum.

Pros: Great staff who you can tell love what they do.

Cons: Can't eat out every meal.

Dined here New Years Eve, which did cause me to lower my expectations for service knowing they would be busy. Be sure to visit their website first, they have a lot of "expectations" of their customers. Such as don't ask for recipes, don't look for salt and pepper, be sure to communicate any special needs, be realistic about size of wine pours etc. I actually found this refreshing as they are being honest with people.

I had the tasting menu, and was pleased with every dish (mushroom and arugula salad, scallops, risotto, tenderloin, pumpkin tart). The wine pairings (five in all) were both exceptional and disappointing. My wife had a parmesan fettucini that was rich (damn the diet) and tasty.

One area where they could improve- service was competent but rushed. The "cards" with pending reservation times noted in other reviews were missing but the same information WAS written on the butcher paper tablecloth. So we knew we were expected to vacate our table 90 minutes after being seated. This also explained why our table location was sub-par even though nicer tables were available- they plan it all in advance. Our dessert order was taken with 15 minutes to deadline. We weren't shown the dessert tray, just given the verbal rundown (my choice was fixed but my wife could order from the full menu) nor offered coffee or after dinner drinks (my wine pairing was automatic). As noted, it WAS New Year's Eve so perhaps on less crowded days they don't subtly rush you through your meal. On the plus side, our water glasses WERE kept full, and our server was pleasant if not overly friendly. The chef thanked us on the way out.

I am glad we tried this restaurant, and may visit again on a non-holiday weeknight to see if the service is any different, but I'm not raving about it.

This is most definitely a hidden gem, but quickly becoming a hot spot.
Very romantic decor, great staff and fabulous food.
Their wine selection had a nice wide variety, prices were reasonable and overall experience was very pleasant.
We were thinking the staff would be snobbish, but were proven wrong. They were very helpful and polite.
We will definitely go again and again.
PROS: Food, Romantic, Great location
CONS: Parking

94 Stewart Restaurant has some gut filling appetizers and some giant entrees as well. We definitely enjoyed our meal and we will return again. The service was fine.

Just ate at 94 Stewart this week after reading about it in various magazines. What a find! Although our server had a bit of an odd demeanor, he was extremely knowledgeable about the food and helped us pick some excellent wines. The food was outstanding in every respect, from the seafood chowder to the black cod to the steak. I can't wait to return to 94 Stewart again and again - this will surely become one of our favorite places in the city.

Let me start by saying we eat out quite a bit. My wife and I visited 94 Stewart for the first time on Valentine's Day 2008. At first impression it is very quaint and cute with a walk through hanging drapery separating the entrance and the dining area. After we were seated is when we started to feel awkward. Every table had free-standing reservation cards with a heart and the party's name on it (which was a nice touch) however, on the back side facing us was the time of the reservation as well as a "Out Time". We already felt rushed and we hadn't even seen our waiter yet, according to the card we had 1 hour 15 minutes to eat and get out. Anyway, we thought it was just overlooked and that the waiter would pick it up. They didn't, and it was placed prominently on our table and everyone else's table for our entire meal. I understand that Valentines Day is a busy night, however not what I would have expected on such an occasion and for a restaurant of this price level (my wife and I spent $150 for our meal with tip for two). There are several other restaurants at this price that would have given us the experience we desired.

The food was again just OK, and not breathtaking, the fried avocado was the only uncommon treat. We had the scallops and steak (I can't remember which cut it was). The scallops were pretty salty for my taste and would have much rather been able to taste the scallops than only the salt. The steak for my wife was prepared a little better but still left you thinking of other things.

Overall we felt very blatantly rushed in and rushed out. Didn't enjoy the feeling of "dining out" on such a special occasion with the time cards on our table and the food was just average for an above average price. I would have much rather gone to Campage or Canlis for the price.

I love taking business associates and friends to 94. I always know we'll be treated like real people, not just dollar signs. I don't think I've ever seen the same menu item repeated a single time. The kitchen limits their selection to whats fresh. Our server is always willing to stand behind every single one of them too. How many times have you been out to eat to ask the server about a particular dish and they have to have a side bar with you in order to tell you to avoid that sub-par dish. NEVER at 94. Sometimes the soups aren't for me, but I still steal a little bite if I'm with friends and EVERYtime I've been blow'n away no matter what it is. I'm sure the kitchen does just throw in a little of this and a little of that. If they ever made a manual on everything they put out of that small kitchen I'm sure it would be in volumes that had to be added to every month. And get real, if I was the cook down the street I'd NEVER walk up to another in the business and demand a recipe. A good chef doesn't even have them, it is just a little of this and a little of that. I've learned that much watching my father cook when I was a youth. I'd suggest reading their website if you haven't had a chance to join this family. It's as honest as they are in side that door.

We were attending the PCMA Convention in Seattle when we decided to take a free afternoon to check out Seattle. There were 3 of us, and all being from other cities Conventin & Visitors Bureau's, we dine out a lot and love to check out the local cuisine. We had heard that this restaurant had very good food. Yes, this was true; the food was good, but wow the attitudes there were so snooty. Our server was very condescending. When we asked what a "must have" was on the menu, his response was a very haughty, "everything on our menu is good." After dining, I asked if the Chef would share the recipe for her soup. Instead of handling this diplomatically, he just hedged by saying that she just "throws stuff in there." So I went and spoke to the Chef herself telling her how much I enjoyed her soup and could she tell me what she puts in it. She was just as haughty and kept answering me that she uses spices. When I asked which spices, she finally said, "I don't share recipes." She said this so rudely to me that I was taken aback. It wasn't like I was from the restaurant down the street and planned to steal the recipe. I felt that I was complimenting her, and she was simply rude about it. Whether she shares her recipes or not (and really get over yourself), to speak rudely to someone who has just complimented you isn't very smart business sense. We left feeling that our experience was less than positive. If you want good food, by all means check out this restaurant - just don't expect to be treated kindly.

I absolutely loved this place. The food was well prepared, timely and un-rushed. The wait staff are not only friendly, but truly like doing what they do... and it reflects in their service.

In a city bowled over with chowders, this one is certainly the best!

Before going to most restaurants that are over the range of fast food money, I usually check their reviews. And i must say 94 stewart had award winning raves, with their wine menu and many advertised statements of being a family ran and owned restaurant, that I'm sure every restaurant would love to be labeled as. The first time dining their I was semi-fascinated about what lurked beyond the burgendy and gold curtains, to the dimly lit dining room. But when entering, the one thing that confused me the most had to be the cheaply cut paper coverings with crayons on the table. Now I'm all for entertainment throughout dinner, but what the hell? Theres a difference between denny's and a supposed fine dining establishment, I'm an adult or was the place attracting strictly children... again the confusion. The servers were attentive enough, I drowned in water, and the pacing back and forward with the hostess was a little bit too distracting for me. I wanted to tell him to sit down somewhere and let the servers serve... OH the food was okay, over priced for its portions are true, i read it in a review but experiencing it in real life cements the fact. I'm paying alot, i mean can i get some seconds maybe? lol... being that it looked like all the servers were gay... I love gay men mind you... being overly vulgar about it is the difference. I know your gay... it is okay.

Ahh Valentine's... or as we in the industry refer to it - Amateur Night.

As one in the biz, this restaurant is such a breath of fresh air. A staff that is honest and always tells you like it is. In my visits to this local favorite I've overheard the servers successfully convincing the guests to just leave the menu as the chef intended it. I only wish I could be that honest at my job and have the backing of a kitchen that puts their all into every dish they put out. Those with a sense of adventure and an understanding of what it takes to be this passionate will love this restaurant as much as the many regulars I see on my far too infrequent visits.

Hmmm... I wonder if they're hiring?

Besides the fine food (I had sea scallops and my friend had copper river salmon), the service is excellent.
Our waiter was patient in helping us select the perfect wine to go with our seafood dishes--a pinot noir from New Zealand. We felt transported to another land because of the decor and containment of the space.
The lighting (or lack of) also contributes to the atmosphere. The best thing of all is we were left to dine for over 2 hours with little interruption except a check on needs such as water refill, completion of a course, etc. It is rare in most restaurants I have been to in the USA for such a luxury of time. I had eaten lunch at this restaurant over a year ago and that positive experience motivated me to return for dinner. I was not disappointed.

This was one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had. My husband and I love to come to Seattle frequently and stay at the Inn At The Market. We had never tried this restaurant but it?s close proximity to one of our favorite hotels meant we had to give it a try. We had reservations which had been re-confirmed the day before and we arrived 10 minutes early. Even so there was some confusion as to where we would sit and it took several minutes to be shown to our table. When we were seated our server turned the reservation card around to show the next reservation for our table which included the name and time of the next reservation and he drew our attention to it while mentioning how much time we had to order, eat and get out.

While ordering I asked for a different side dish than what came with my meal. Our server commented that I really didn?t know what flavors went together or I wouldn?t have asked for the change. When one of our table mates asked where the restroom was located she was corrected with a sneer and told that the WASHROOM was located at the back of the restaurant. Our entire meal was a study in how to treat people as though they were ignorant, unsophisticated, and beneath contempt; at one point our servers huffing and puffing became so outrageous that we all began to chuckle.

The food was OK. The fried avocado was bland and greasy, the beef dishes were well cooked and my side dish wasn?t too bad despite our servers warning to the contrary. However, it is hard to appreciate the food when you are being so ill treated. So while we will continue our patronage at the Inn At The Market we will explore other dining options.

One of the more interesting hors de ouvres i have had in my travels is the fried avacado and crab. The corn relish mixed with the lime dressing was a delight. As well, the Halibut in champagne sauce was fresh and perfectly cooked. However, the dessert was a disapointment. Im not usually a dessert fan but the plate of tempting treats was just that! Alas i was disapointed in the blackberry slump, the crust was chewy and hard to cut, perhaps due to a microwave zap or just not perfected, but it was the only part of the meal that was not up to par.

Sitting at the bar which overlooks the grill was a treat. the service was friendly and prompt. the location is nice for a decent walk to the market and back up Pikes and i would recommend the place as a romantic spot to take a date. The price is at the highend of the spectrum but the end result was well worth it.

We called ahead to ask if they could do something vegan on a busy Saturday and, not only did they make an amazing dinner, they added it to the menu that evening. Fantastic service with a nice humorous edge and appreciated dry wit! Service was not oversolicited in the least nor was our server at all snooty. LOVE THIS PLACE!!!

Pros: Great food, great service

Service was great but food was average at best. Drink choices other than wine were limited and not very good. For the price, I think I would go somewhere else next time.

When in Seattle, I always make a point to visit 94 Stewart. Creative menus, marvelous flavors, truly "family" staff atmosphere. Try the monthly wine dinners for a truly fun and delicious evening. Be prepared for "fun with attitude". Andy and staff have repeatedly salvaged days that weren't so great until I arrived at 94 Stewart.

When in Seattle, I always make a point to visit 94 Stewart. Creative menus, marvelous flavors, truly "family" staff atmosphere. Try the monthly wine dinners for a truly fun and delicious evening. Be prepared for "fun with attitude". Andy and staff have repeatedly salvaged days that weren't so great until I arrived at 94 Stewart.

.

My husband and I went to 94 for dinner and unfortunately our experience was very hot and cold. The hostess was almost unfriendly in her greeting. She found our name in the computer and seated us immediately with no warmth, or smile, or really any communication at all. The waiter was almost schizophrenic in his serving. One minute he was smiling and laughing and a beacon of hospitality, but the next visit he seemed almost sullen and had a lot of attitude. The food also seemed to be hot and cold for us. The Romaine & Blue salad was wonderful, but we asked for it to be split and instead of doing that in the kitchen they just brought an extra plate forcing us to reach across the table to split the salad ourselves. Certainly a small inconvenience, but it would have been nice for them to take care of that for us. We had the Foie Gras Terrine and found it to be fairly flavorless. I was disappointed since I normally enjoy foie gras, although maybe the style of preparation and my lack of understanding it was to blame. I had the Oregon Rabbit which was amazing! The texture, the flavor, every aspect was right on the mark. My husband had the Roast Pork Loin which was tepid at best. The flavor was good, but it just wasn't hot enough, and it seemed a bit dry. Maybe the plate sat for a while before being delivered. I don't think I will visit 94 Stewart again since there are so many good restaurants in the area that have truly impressed from the first visit on.

Of the 20 items on the lunch menu I only see four of them as sandwiches? Why don't you order something else? And what deli are you going to that offers anything even close in quality and freshness to the few this restaurant is offering this month? Yes you can get chemical filled, weeks old, coleslaw at KFC, but with the option for fresh hand made coleslaw, I'll choose it every time (what is that lovely sauce they make it with). The few times I'll had the fortune to be able to dine with the family at 94 I have always felt the chef was open to question and my opinions. I know she changes the lunch menu all most every month and if there was something different I had in mind I'm sure she would put great thought into it. I guess I'm more of the old school of thought; if I have a complaint I let them know in person and not wait to complain where little to nothing can be said or done about it. I guess some people are just happier complaining all the time. Appears to be a common problem in this information age. I'm happy there are still restaurants in this big city that still believe in the small town ideals. I'll keep 94 at the top of my list and continue to enjoy whatever the chef feels like creating that day, because I will always know I get not just the best fresh ingredients, but I know she is giving it her all every time. If there is ever anything I do not like, don't worry I won't be a coward, I will let her know face to face as any person should do.

My friend and I went here on a Sunday evening. Although it was not busy, the waiter seemed to be hurrying us along. We had the fried avacado appetizer. The crab part was really good but the avacado itself was very bland. My friend had the pork chop which was average at best. Not very flavorful and cold. I got the steak. It was very fatty, tough and also cold. Why we ordered dessert I don't know. Both of them looked as if they were in the pastry case uncovered for a week. The crust was so hard that by the time I applied enough pressure to get my fork through it, it almost flew off the table. And both tasted terrible. The wine list is impresssive and our bottle was great, however it was one that I knew well and never dissappoints. I dine out a lot in Seattle and am often asked for suggestions from friends. I will never recommend this place. Very very disappointed and unimpressed.

We met up with another couple for dinner on friday night and Andy was our server. He was quite jovial and told us a bit about the establishment and how much he loved the place. 3 of the 4 of us are discerning wine drinkers who were pleasantly surprised at Andy's recommendation of _____? I can't remember what it was, but it was a luscious red that was totally reasonably priced and suited our meals beautifully. So good, that we had 2 bottles. The menu changes constantly so for us, appetizers consisted of an outrageously good seared scallop salad, and an equally great mushroom soup. It was a little rainy out and we were looking for some uncomplicated, hearty comfort food. I had the crab linguine w/sundried tomato and wilted spinach which didn't disappoint with it's generous portions of whole crab leg. My husband had the new york steak which he said was pretty good. I asked him why he didn't get the pork chop or any other meat dish on the menu for that matter, and his response was that he didn't like any of the preparations ... he's not a meat with warm fruit kind of guy. But he did say his soup was superb and that the foie gras terrine (appetizer) was very memorable. All of the desserts were made in house and were wonderfully uncomplicated ... very generous in size and more rustic and approachable than the tall swirly dealios you see everywhere now. We had chocolate cake made with Oban scotch, a warm blueberry cobbler/tart a la mode, and caramel cheesecake. Sometimes it's not about the drama ... sometimes, you just want some good food. We'll be back.

Pros: great wine selection, relaxed atmosphere, takes reservations

Cons: of course ... parking

I'm a concierge nearby, and I send folks to 94 Stewart whenever I can. I've been in at least 10 times in the past couple of years and have never been let down by the food or the service. Sounds like the last reviewer must have caught them on a very bad day--certainly possible--but not my experience there. At lunch you must have the crabby sandwich, and I suggest sitting at the counter to watch the chef-owner at work. She is pure zen beauty. Really in her element. For dinner, take the server's suggestions. Let them guide you. You won't regret it.

We spotted the restaurant on the way back from an errand and decided to give the restaurant a try for lunch as our business often includes recommending good places to eat. We were seated by a pleasant young busser and given one (?) menu for the two of us. The server, Andy, who was wearing a backwards cap (unusual for inside a business) approached and was a bit standoffish as he informed us of the soup of the day. Bread plates were placed on the table but bread was never served. When the server came back to take our order, he was a bit impatient as we could tell by his body language. The food was brought to to the table by the same server a while later and since there were only two of us, it was a bit odd to have the "Denny's" treatment of "who gets the...?" One would think such a restaurant would have servers who know how to properly record customer seating and and their noted food orders. My friend ordered a Reuben and enjoyed his sandwich. I ordered a Cobb Salad for $16 and was a bit dissapointed with the size and presentation as it differed from the typical presentation. The dressing was very heavy on the salad. The server delivered the salad and left without offering pepper (not on the table) and when I called him back over, his expression was one of complete annoyance. The busser did a good job of keeping the waters full. When we were finished with our meals, the server asked if we wanted dessert or coffee but did not offer any extra effort to tease our dessert palate. We were handed our check which included an industry discount (the discount was appreciated and concluded he saw our name tags on our jackets before we took them off) but there was no verbal acknowldegment or conversation thanking us for our business or future referrals. We did not see any sign of management or staff on the floor other than the server and the busser. Overall, we were not very pleased.

I'm a Seattle native and have been to many of the nice restaurants in the city. For our one year anniversary, my husband and I celebrated in Seattle. I had a hard time deciding where we would go. We chose 94 Stewart because we love family owned places. We were amazed by the food and overwhelmed by the service. They went out of their way to make our anniversary special! My husband (from the midwest) loves steak and orders it often. He said this steak was the best he had ever had. This is quite a place and we will definitely be return visitors when we are in Seattle.

We loved the atmosphere, the great avocado appetizer (which we immediately tried to recreate at home), and the brown bag wine was so fun! Will plan on going back!

My gal and I ate here before a play. We were running late and only had an hour. The waiter ensured that we were out of there promptly and even had a cab waiting for us to whisk us away to the theatre. I thought the service was excellent. The food was also very good. I had the beef tenderloin and it was magnificent. it was cooked to perfection. It was rare, but not too rare. The sauce was also very good, not too over powering. The avocado appetizer was also very good. The lady had scalllops which were fabulous. Next time I will allow for more time. They had a great dessert menu.

I also liked the "feel" of the bistro...very funky place.

My wife an I took two visiting CA friends to 94 Stewart today, along with our law student son. The food was incredibly over salted, the lamb sausage in the so called Cassolet (a thin soup in this version) was raw and the steak was almost completely missing from my son's New York Steak Sandwich. Oh, and the waiter was smug and indifferent. They boast of a 400 bottle wine cellar, but were out of my first four wine choices. There are many better bistro styles restaurants in Seattle. Avoid this one.

Thoroughly enjoyed my night at 94 Stewart. Service was warm and attentive and you just had the feeling that staff and customers were both happy being there. This night I planned to have an appetizer, salad and dessert and skip the main dish. Started out with the soup of the day which was excellent. Pumpkin and smoked bacon with a nice balance of spice. Next, the Scallop and Endive salad which was just wonderful. Next a chocolate caramel torte, which had I been doing good on my diet up this point, was now all shot to you know where. All in all, a great spot with over the top service and selection. Looking forward to going back.

I've been a fan of 94 Stewart since shortly after they opened, and have eaten here many times. My favorite thing to do is sit at the food bar and look into the kitchen, although those seats were all taken on the most recent visit. Lindsey has a wonderful knowledge and enthusiasm for wine, and is happy to share both tastes and knowledge if you ask. Don't go here for fast food or on a tight time line, while they will be happy to accomodate you, it would be a wasted experience. Plan to relax and enjoy, and they will take care of the details. Wine is good, food is great, and Celinda always creates interesting and tasty desserts. You might want to look at the dessert options first so that you can plan your meal. I always send out of town guests here and they are invariable happy. I like to go on a non weekend night so that things aren't quite as busy...I would bet the one reviewer who was not happy probably came in on a Friday night in the midst of the dinner rush a time best avoided.

Even a place this great can have a few off nights. I continue to go back for not only the great food and service I receive consistently, but the fact the staff is like a family (many of them are part of the same family) means they really care and show it. They take every comment positive and negative and grow from them. I've seen them in action many times. As a regular counter goer I've spoken with the chef/owner(Celinda Norton) and sous chef (Jef Hagen, another family member) numerous times. If something is not right the chef will get involved. So if there is something not to your liking, let her know (don't be a coward and post it days later, when they can't do a thing about it). I know I'm sure I've been one of those people who has hogged Lindsey's attention while she spouts her wine knowledge. I'll apologize now for making your service a little slower and maybe your check taking an extra minute to arrive. It was me! I did it! I was so interested in the great offerings of the night I couldn't resist. Oh, on that note don't miss the brown bag, great chance to try something you may never even thought of. Pair it up with a little cheese and you can't go wrong for a great start or late afternoon snack. If your lucky maybe Nic (the cheese steward) will be in the house when you stop by and you can take up as much of his time as you need while he tells you all about the great selections he has brought in this week. Don't worry he doesn't just limit himself to the local selections. I've had the chance to try some amazing things from all over the world I have yet to find at even some of the top cheese shops in town.

I researched before I took my boyfriend to this place for his birtday and had great expectations. For a place of fine dining, the food was not all that good, and the service was horrible. It really ruined our entire dinner. The "avocado appetizer" was not all that good and why was there a 15 minute break between the time the server took our plates and a new dish arrived for each of the 2 appetizers and the entree we ordered, not even mentioning the fact that it took equal time for our drinks to arrive as the first appetizer? Once our Roman lettuce appetizer arrived she asked us if we wanted some fresh ground pepper in which we replied yes, and then she doesnt bring it at all? Why even ask? Once we got our check (after I had to ask a different server filling our water), I waited watching our server talk to another table for 20 minutes and then another 10 minutes passed until I got up to hand the check to some other person behind the bar. I think he was the owner. I made a remark about how I've been waiting for the check to be processed and the owner didn't even say anything and didn't even care that we were very unhappy. Over all the service at this place was extremely bad and the food was mediocre. On our way out the server didn't even glance at our direction even though she was near our table. My boyfriend informed me later that our server was the owner of the restaurants daughter. Poor service must run in the family. May have been worth maybe half the money I spent at this place.

We have had 2 fabulous dinners here - the service, wine, and food are all exceptional. It had been 3 months since our first visit, and the sommelier Lindsey remembered us, what we ate, and what wines we liked. Never have we had such personalized, warm, knowledgeable service (and we dine out a LOT). Both of our visits were true dining experiences... not rushed, very personal (the service was not poor - we enjoyed the time between courses to try different wine samples)! Lindsey knows her stuff... she poured multiple "brown bag" tastes for us, allowing us to try and guess the varietals. Not only were the wines delicious and unique, it made our meal fun and educational. The well rounded wine list is now over 6 pages and offers something for every palate and budget. The food is creative and delicious, reasonably priced, and the portions are very ample. This has become our favorite new restaurant!

The food here was excellent. From the appetizers to desserts, everything was tasty, creatively prepared & perfectly cooked. The service however... We had the wine sommelier for our waitress. While she was friendly & energetic, she's a pretty bad waitress. We waited 5-10 mins before she ever came to the table, and then were done with cocktails before she ever came back to see if we were ready to order. (which left us without drink or food for a period of time) Since she was the sommelier, i figured maybe she was filling in for someone tonight and probably was better at her "real" job (the wines). Ah, but not to be so. Thankfully i know a little bit about wines, at least enough to get a decent bottle. I mentioned what I was looking for in terms of taste, etc and asked for her recommendations. She said "let me go look and bring a couple recommendations" (never asking my price range). This was when we ordered our apps and meal. Our main course was on the table before she ever came back with the wine (after i flagged her down 2 times). Her descriptions of the wine were nothing more than "this is made in the classic Cab style". Told me one of the 3 she had was her absolute favorite. I decided to pass on that given that she really wasn't offering me much, and chose a vineyard/varietal i was sure would please. She opened the bottle right there and poured (it was good) Thankfully i made my own choice, b/c she came back 5 mins later and said "oh, i had the wrong bottle for that one i told you I loved" (she was completely clueless). And just so you don't think it was us - the people at the next table had to cancel their main courses b/c they were late for a show and she (the waitress/sommelier) had forgotten to put the order in. They had been their 90 mins with only drinks & appetizers. She was profusely apologizing to them - they took it in stride thankfully, appeared to be "regulars"

The food here was excellent. From the appetizers to desserts, everything was tasty, creatively prepared & perfectly cooked. The service however... We had the wine sommelier for our waitress. While she was friendly & energetic, she's a pretty bad waitress. We waited 5-10 mins before she ever came to the table, and then were done with cocktails before she ever came back to see if we were ready to order. (which left us without drink or food for a period of time) Since she was the sommelier, i figured maybe she was filling in for someone tonight and probably was better at her "real" job (the wines). Ah, but not to be so. Thankfully i know a little bit about wines, at least enough to get a decent bottle. I mentioned what I was looking for in terms of taste, etc and asked for her recommendations. She said "let me go look and bring a couple recommendations" (never asking my price range). This was when we ordered our apps and meal. Our main course was on the table before she ever came back with the wine (after i flagged her down 2 times). Her descriptions of the wine were nothing more than "this is made in the classic Cab style". Told me one of the 3 she had was her absolute favorite.

Pros: Fabulous Food

Cons: Chaotic service (at lease if you get the sommelier as your waitress)

My husband and I went to 94th Stewart for the first time to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary, and we didn't want to leave!!
Great wine!
Great Cheese!
Great nouveau cuisine!
Can't beat the ambiance, and outstanding wait staff!
Beware of the delicious desserts-- Once you start you can't stop!!
We suggest this restuarant to anyone looking for a little bit of heaven in a busy city!

I took my boyfriend to 94 Stewart for his B-day recently since neither one of us had been there and the reviews were all highly recommending it. From the street it looks a bit non-descript but step inside and it's a quaint intimate setting with red velvet drapes separating the seating areas to add a bit of drama -- it is still a casual seattle scene, not pretentious. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful when it came to selecting menu items. We shared the Fried Avocado appetizer....this was so tasty and amazing. My boyfriend had the Pork Loin which he loved and I had a Sea Scallop dish with coconut rice and cilantro that was out of this world -- so many enjoyable flavors that I still to this day think about that dish...although it looks like they've changed their menu and don't have the item any longer :(. My boyfriend loved this place and he can sometimes be a bit of a critic so that says a lot !! We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience...the food, service and atmosphere were all exceptional and we will definitely go back!!

This is in the old Garlic Tree location- they did a nice job redoing the decor. I took my out of town cousins here so they could get the feel for the Pike Market atmosphere. The food was OK, nothing to write home about. I had the white salmon from Neah Bay, which was an unusual offering. There is not a lot of variety on the menu, either. Good location in the market, though, so they should do well.

Go to 94 Stewart for good food, exceptional service, creative menus, and to feel like a star! I first went to 94 Stewart for my birthday dinner, which to my great fortune fell on a Tuesday night so we got to take advantage of their Capitan's Dinner. We had the wine steward as our waitress, and she took excellent care of us, and made me feel very celebrated! I have been back numerous times and highly recommend it to my friends. It's a great place for a date or celebration. The heavy curtains create intimate spaces and set the mood for any occasion. Don't forget to check out the desserts-- original creations by the chef that are sure to make you smile!

I have searched fine restaurants from San Francisco to Victoria and found this place called 94 Stewart in the Pike Street area. What a find! The place was packed and they still got us in! The food, wine, and service was a ten. And on the way out the owner asked us how everything was and invited us back! Very friendly and warm. Great for a first date, casual or lusting for great food and service. Thanks Andy!

My wife and I were on vacation in Seattle and had recently read the July issue of Food and Wine Magazine which included a rating of the best new restaurant wine lists that featured 94 Stewart.
Originally drawn by the article we were fortunate to find the restaurant was so much more!
Lindsey Norton, the wine steward, was more than worth the price of admission because of her personal flair, knowledge and warmth!
Between courses of wonderful food that Chef Celinda Norton provided - a savory and chunky Dungeness bisque, a "Crabby", a Dungeness Crab Salad and a list of cheeses that were exotic and samples of wines Lindsey was offering - Lindsey would move from table to table where winery representatives would try to seduce her with their wines to make her list.
Kim, "Assistant/Host", told us when we arrived and mentioned the article that she had been trying to get a copy of Food and Wine and by the time we were through our late lunch she had secured one.
It was a wonderful, relaxing and fitting cap to our visit to Seattle and all of the wonderful Washington State wines and seafood it has to offer!

We recently had dinner at 94 Stewart and are planning a return visit in July. The food was exceptional and the Lemon Tart dessert the best I have ever had. The menu variety provides ample selection and the wines are excellent and reasonably priced.

To my mind it is definitely the best restaurant in Seattle.

I tour with the musical, "Chicago", so we get to sample food from around the world. A castmate and I had such a wonderful lunch, that I had to join city search to write the review for it. We had a 'tipsy crab bisque', made with white wine and cognac, salmon fish and chips, which was made in a tempura batter, and the dungeness crab three cheese maccaroni. The apple cobbler made with Grand Marnier was perfection. Patronize these folks! You won't be disappointed, and tell 'em 'Amos' sent ya!

94 Stewart is such an oasis. I have dined several times over the last few months and every time the incredible staff gives new meaning to perfect. These people really care and it shows. Chef Celinda's menus are so intriquing I just wish I could eat more. The food is nothing short of amazing; always perfectly executed and presented with artistic integrity. The wine list! My word, such incredible choices and Lindsey is so fun to chat with. She really knows her wines and always recommends something fabulous that pairs perfectly with my dinner. This is a restaurant that knows what service is, also. No matter if it's a laid back Sunday night or a full house Saturday night, the service is not only professional, knowledgeable and right on, it's fun. My hat's off to the staff of 94 Stewart. You're one in a million!

Thank you, 94 Stewart. I recently brought in some very hard to please out of town guests and you made us heros. The food was superb, like every time we visit. Wine pairings were amazing. Your staff made such an impression on our guests, they gushed all the way home and believe me, this is a tremendous feat! We cant thank you enough for how welcome you always make us feel every single time we visit.

What a surprise this place was! Contrary to other reviews, I found the staff friendly and knowledgeable. The service was impeccable but not intrusive.

Cheese Lovers: There's a cheese menu and a cheese "guru" who happily came to our table and offered solid reccommendations. I had a bowl of crab soup (can't recall the exact name) and it was simply great. The baked oysters-- served au gratin style--was one of the best dishes I've ever had, anywhere, period. The wine list was awesome and offered several quality middle or lower-priced choices. The desert selection was also incredible and our server said each item was made from scratch by the chef that day. We tried two and I believe him.

In my opinion this is one of Seattle's best restaurants, and a perfect addition to the market area. Even if you are in doubt, check it out.

For my birthday I researched restaurants and based on the reviews I've read, I chose 94 Stewart. Upon arriving, we were seated and given menus. I did not see my waiter for approximately 25 minutes and finally had to flag down another staff person to please find my waiter. When he finally did reach my table he informed me that he had completely forgotten about us. Kind of hard to do with only three other tables of people in the restaurant. Not a good start. An apology was never offered.
I had the New York steak which had a sauce that was heavy on the salt, the dessert was also very weak. My wife did have a pasta dish and that was good.
Overall, I could not recommend this restaurant when there are so many great restaurants in Seattle.

I can not even tell you how much I just love 94 Stewart Resturant. Never have I had a bad meal, and the service is always genuine. My favorite item at lunch is the Crabby Sandwich, and if you ever go you just have to try the chowder.

The Scene
There's a funky Market feel in this family-owned subterranean bistro--velvet curtains separate tables to create private "rooms" and the checked tile floor and famed prints of old Seattle add to the eclectic atmosphere.…
