It saddens me some people prefer going to japanese restaurants where they cover up its natural flavors w/blobs of sauce(high calorie high sodium) and call it "flavorful" and think that is "traditional" japanese food. Have you BEEN to

I usually frequent Umi Sake House a few blocks away and I'm not sure I'll ever wait in line at Umi again after this 1st highly impressionable visit to Wann!!! It was Happy Hour all day (these run Mondays and Tuesdays) and where do I

After reading all the glowing reviews on Citysearch, I was excited to try Wann. My husband and I have been to all the other Japanese restaurants up and down Belltown-- and there are many! Unfortunately, the food is not nearly as exciting

Izakaya is an upscale place in downtown. Their menu is very diverse. Appetizer, two entrees and drinks came to about $75, including drinks and sashimi.

I thought that was very reasonable for outstanding food and quality service.

We ate here for dinner and there was hardly enough lighting to read the menu or see what we were eating! It's literally like eating in the dark. So I recommend bringing your own flashlight (I say it with sarcasm, but seriously there needs

We went last weekend and were blown away by the food here. We arrived at around 6:30pm on Saturday, no need for reservations. Nice restaurant, not a pub style place at all. Beef tataki and tempura brie were just amazing! Really

Great food...my favorite is the beef tataki! The prices are very reasonable, especially for being in Belltown. I talked to one of the managers and found out that the chefs are all from Japan and don't speak English (I'm not sure how much

I came here with a friend, and was pleasantly surprised at the tastes I was able to indulge in. I ordered a couple of small dishes that the server warned me would be spicy (oh come on, I eat spicy food all the time! Bring it on!)...well

Pros: interesting combinations, great tasting small plates, friendly staff

So I guess "izakaya" refers to a casual after-work hang-out, but this place looks so fancy inside! Maybe that's why it hasn't found its fan-base yet. It's a pity. The food is great. Really great. I've been several times (I work across

Great Happy Hour! \r
5 happy hour dishes, 2 alcoholic drinks, green tea, and some juice came out to < $40. Original drinks, elegant dishes, and cold japanese beer on tap make this a favorite of mine. Plus they have the best spicy tuna roll

Pros: Ambience, Original drinks, Service, Spicy Tuna Roll, Sesame Ice Cream (seriously)

Pros: Different from other Japanese restaurants in Belltown, open late, tasty food

Cons: A bit expensive

It's not the sort of Izakaya that I expected. It wasn't smoky enough, rowdy enough, loud enough. I've always associated Izakayas with pub grub and atmosphere, but Wann is decidedly upscale in decor and culinary presentation. \r
