Looks like the Rat Pack could walk in any second. Leather high back studded bar stools, pendant lighting, and a relaxed staff all contribute to the retro styling. Food was delicious, but watch out! Not a place for dieters! They don't hold back on the oil! Dine at the bar and watch the cooks toss up a meal in the flames! Good place for after hours chillin' and munchies.

If you haven??t been to this or one of the other 13-Coin restaurant ?? you have missed a fabulous Seattle icon. Picture yourself in a wonderfully dark 1950??s smokey restaurant. While the lack of smoke takes from the image ?? it does make for a better dining experience. Great food as well.

Thank you for the worst meal I've ever had. The fatty meat. The raw vegetables. The waiter who acted like he just got fired. What the hell happened to this restaurant. I used to love going here. now its an expensive grocery store because no one knows how to COOK the food.
Letting me know I wouldn't have to pay for your first mistake? Of course you took the first plate back. I can bet that even you wouldn't eat it.

My second order, I'm thinking who can mess up manicotti but congratulation, you messed up the second meal too. How much salt do you REALLY need in manicotti. Trying to save money by piling on the cheese?

The woman next to me ALSO gave you back her plate because your chef didn't know how to cut tomatoes. TOMATOES!!!

I paid gratuity because its the polite thing to do. So you should return the favor and give me WELL COOKED FOOD when I've ask nicely and paid for it.

The food wasn't cooked.
The meat was so fatty it was floating on top of the sauce.
It came to me cold.
The waiter acted like he was just fired.

Then some man came and said, "you don't have to pay for that dish. That was abnormally fatty."
Well great. Thank you for letting me know that I wouldn't have to pay for your restaurant's mistakes.

I make a second order of manicotti because really, who can mess that up?
13 coins can!!
So much salt, I drank water to keep from throwing up. The vegetables inside of it was still crunchy which made me wonder if the meat was cooked.
A layer of oil surfaced on top of my meal within three minutes.
The waiter also didn't care to say, "be careful, the plate is hot." which I realize but still he just didn't bother to even act like he cared for my safety.

The woman next to me also gave back her order because the chefs messed up cutting up the tomatoes. THE TOMATOES.

And in the mist of all this, my friend sat there. She was smart and ordered a salad, which I'm guessing is the only thing that they can "COOK" well.
I felt bad that she had to wait and paid the bill when I really wanted to sit there and dare the entire staff to eat the food they had just cooked for me.

I've heard many good things about this restaurant and had been wanting to go there for a long time.

My boyfriend and I went for our 3 year anniversary and I ordered the filet mignon. The steak itself was decent but nothing spectacular. However, the fried onions on top of the steak smelt horrible. They had the smell of old oil, exactly like the smell of fried onions in a can that are 5 years old. I was extremely disappointed because it was obvious that the onions where either from a can or fried in very old/dirty oil. I don't know much about cooking and food but I know the smell of old fried foods. The pasta that came with the steak was below average as well, just pasta with olive oil and parmesan cheese on top. For what we paid, it was certainly not worth it.

Despite that, the fact that it is 24 hours is great. It is also a lovely environment. Would probably order something different next time.

Pros: late night dining, environment

Cons: cost, quality of food

Friendly waiters BUT
hair in bread baskets, crumbs on floor, manager not happy to have these things pointed out; food way overpriced. This restaurant is not what it was in the past; surly management in these times means 13 Coins will be closing before long...

For about five years I ate breakfast at 13 Coins almost every Saturday. It is a bone fide Seattle institution.

Historically it has been famous for many things including huge portions, huge number of choices, huge chairs to watch the open kitchen cooking, and huge waits during busy times. The food was outstanding and reasonably priced, all things considered.

Over the years it has changed hands. The portions have gone down a bit, as have the crowds. Nonetheless, the food is still good. I had lunch there, opting for a good Caesar and adding crab to it - yummy. My friend, Linda, had a frittata which is still huge and still tasty.

My boyfriend and I have been going to the Coins for a very long time and it has always been our favorite for late night dining. We go there mostly for the chef's counter show which can be amazing and so much fun! It's great to watch the chefs at work and the interaction between staff and customers makes it an experience that you won't find at many other venues. Quite often if you don't want the side dishes that are offered with the entree they will substitute for you. We love having somewhere cozy to go late at night and the free parking is a real bonus. I don't really like to sit anywhere but the chef's counter and will wait for it. Something else that I find a plus is you never know who might be eating there. One time when we were there we spoke with Elliot Gould who was dining there after the theatre.
I am only giving 3 stars though because we have noticed a change in the quality over the last couple of years. We had a horrible experience there last year, but I wrote the corporate office who responded quickly with an apology and a $50.00 gift certificate, which covered a nice lunch. The attention to detail just isn't the same. We will still go back, but I do miss the old Coins. You used to feel like you were at a 5 star restaurant. The food and staff were incredible and quite a few of them had been there for as long as we have been going there. Now I don't seem to recognize any of the staff and their training isn't what it used to be. I also agree with the cleanliness issue, the ladies room could use an update and maybe new fixtures.

13 Coins Restaurant has decent food, and friendly service. The interior is very nice and clean. The place is always crowded. The price of food is reasonable. I like the atmosphere there.

These reviews tell the tale. 13 Coins used to be a great place. We went there and were so disappointed, the food was inedible, the service was at best incompetent. the place was actually dirty with food and debris all over the floor. There are so many great places to dine late in Seattle. I will never go back to 13 Coins, it's was a lot of money for horrible food and service. Rating: NO STARS SKIP IT!

I have been going to 13 coins for a few years. The last 2 times I have gone have been just aweful. The prices have gone through the roof and the food has gotten BAD! My bill was $110.00 for 2 but the food was worth about $20.00. I will spend money on good food and not have a problem but I do have a problem with over priced bad food. My sever left in the middle of our dinner, our new server had no idea what was ordered so I recieved over cooked food and and VERY SLOW service. I called to complain once I got home and was offered a refund. Although this was not why I called, I gladly accepted. When I went in the office to pick that up, the General Manager had no idea what I was talking about but said she would look in to it and call me the next day. I never heard from her. Bad food, Bad service, Bad manager. Save your money and go to Dennys, they serve the same food.

The first time I went to the 13 coins was after a monday night football game, and other than subway it was the only place open. The food was good, maybe a little over priced, but when it is late and you want a good meal you can't go wrong here, they have anything that you could want.

the reviews are back and forth on this place, but I decided to give it a shot either way. I am happy I did. Lets get something out of the way - the food here is good. I didn't have any of the problems that some of the other people reported with things being poorly prepared or less then fresh. My food came out really fresh and was well prepared.

I agree that the cream based pasta dishes are probably more rich then most people are used to, I am Italian and the cream sauce was stronger then usual, but not negativley so. These dishes are prepared with rich taste and quality in mind, not being healthy. The easy solution is to order something that isn't cream based, they have such a huge menu you can find just about anything on it - and healthier dishes are included.

The main issue here is the price, and most people are right, most dishes are priced higher then they maybe should be, but not by much in my opinion. The plates are pretty large, which compensates a bit for the high price, I would say. Also, if you are driving, the location has an abundance of free parking (much of it right across the street in the Seattle Times lot), which saves you some cash.

The last stand out is the service and ambiance. From the chefs to the waiters, everyone is really nice, attentive and engaging without being overly so. The location is huge, super clean and well decorated. It's a really nice place and is really large, which explains the prices (in addition to the good food).

If you dont mind paying a little extra for great service, good food and a sweet location - this is the place to go. Suggest you come with a group or a date you are trying to impress, if you are going to spend this kind of cash for location and service - might as well bring some friends :-)

A favorite spot to eat, also recommend it all the time to friends seeking out good dining. The atmosphere, extensive menu and great service makes this place very conducive to great dining.. You can sit at the counter and watch the chefs as they prepare the food. Comfortable and private stools are available for you to sit and enjoy watching the fascinating cooking skills. The service has always been excellent, several great breakfast dishes served daily.

I picked out 13 Coins during a Google search for "Late Night Dining" and decided to give it a try. The ambiance of the restaurant was nice, and I was seated in a spacious booth. They waited on me immediately, and gave me an interesting snack combo of somewhat stale French bread and a mixture of olives, celery, carrots, pickles, tomatoes and salami slices. Not complaining though. The menu looked interesting, with a wide variety of stuff, but the prices were REALLY high, especially for a casual diner.

With such high prices I expected the food to be amazing, and sadly, it wasn't. My girlfriend ordered the salmon pasta dish, and what arrived was a basically generic piece of salmon with some fairly bland noodles, and the entire thing was DRENCHED in buttery sauce. This was unfortunate, since she doesn't like buttery things, but the truth was, it was too buttery even for my tastes. For a nearly $30.00 entre, it was really underwhelming.

My own dish was the Crab Louie, and while it wasn't bad, there was nothing exciting about it either. It was served on a bed of lettuce with a few stray olives and pickled artichoke hearts, all of which tasted old. It also had two hard boiled egg halves, which were undercooked, overexposed to air, gelatinous, and totally nasty. I've had better hardboiled eggs in the salad bar at a fast food restaurant! The entre was a solid 4 out of 10, and it cost $25!

We only ate about half our food before asking for the check, and the entire meal cost over $70.00 including tip! And we didn't drink any alcohol, and I had water. I expect food of this quality to cost around $10-12 per entre, so the prices are just ridiculous. I definitely won't be going back.

I went to 13 Coins early on a Saturday evening (before 6 pm) and was seated right away. We sat at the counter so we could watch them cook. We ordered the Calamari for an appetizer and it was WONDERFUL! They did not overcook it as most resteraunts like to do and the dipping sauce was perfect! For entrees I had the Steak David - Filet mignon topped with fresh crab and served with Hollandaise sauce on the plate. I could have had just the filet and been just as happy. The Filet was cooked perfectly and it practically melted away from the knife. It came with pasta which I don't eat. But I'm sure if I had asked for a substitute it would not have been an issue. Also ordered by my party was Veal Parmagiana and another steak. Everyone raved about thier food! Desert was Creme Brulee and I couldn't have asked for better. They fired the top so that there was a nice thick shell. No soft spots which always leaves me a little disappointed.
The highlight was being able to watch the kitchen staff cooking. We were seated near the Head chef and he was entertaining and didn't seem to mind answering our silly questions about what they were doing. He cracked a few jokes and the whole staff seemed to be having a great time working, which really goes a long way in the overall dining experience.
I will definately go back... and soon!

We visited the 13 Coins, Downtown, on 11-15-07. We had read a number of the reviews, so we were not surprised at anything. We arrived for an early dinner (4 PM), and as we expected, the hostess tried to seat us at the counter. Noting that the place was virtually empty, we asked for a booth and were seated at the only one without a window and with such a dark lighting that it took us nearly 5 minutes for our eyes to adjust enough to see our menus (yeah, exaggerating just a bit). We ordered couple of pasta dishes, both of which lacked much quality for the price -- thin sauce, bit overcooked, too salty. Also, my coffee was lukewarm, which I really hate. Wait staff was adequately attentive. It is classy looking place, for a diner, but with the price, I would not recommend the restaurant except for one visit ... just to verify what others say.

Pros: Classy diner decor

I cringe when this place is suggested...the furniture is the only appealing part of the experience. Food is to die for...and not in a good way. Horrendously overpriced for the cheap ingredients and snotty service by bitter servers. The last time I went, the 11-teen-year-old hostess was literally leaning against the wall with one leg up, and didn't even look us in the face when she asked "how many?" Grease grease grease is the overpowering taste of EVERYthing. Be sure to keep the salt shaker close. It will help give the impression of actual flavor.

I cringe when this place is suggested...the furniture is the only appealing part of the experience. Food is to die for...and not in a good way. Horrendously overpriced for the cheap ingredients and snotty service by bitter servers. The last time I went, the 11-teen-year-old hostess was literally leaning against the wall with one leg up, and didn't even look us in the face when she asked "how many?" Grease grease grease is the overpowering taste of EVERYthing. Be sure to keep the salt shaker close. It will help give the impression of actual flavor.

.

Came in on a Saturday at 6:30 pm...realized that the wait would be long so we took the bar option (full service menu). We waited over an hour and 15 minutes for our meals to arrive! And when they did....one was totally wrong! When we asked to have it fixed, the server said she would and did....the same time we got the check we got my guest's corrected meal request!!! No apology, nothing taken off the bill....not going to be back!!!

We arrived at 11pm on a Tuesday night (2 of us) and had to wait 15 minutes before we got seated. We found this quit unusual considering we saw several booths open and plenty of counter space. After the wait we where to our amazement, seated at the counter instead of the booth we requested. Asking about this we where told that the booths that where available where for 4 people only. (we where the only ones waiting)
After being placed at the counter we noticed the cooks where very dirty, in fact the entire kitchen was a mess. Dirty towels laying on cutting boards, cooks using dirty knives to cut food. Garbage everywhere. Needless to say we decided not to eat there and left.
I do not recommend this restaurant to anyone!!
You would have a better time at Denny?s

If you want cheap, greasy and fast...go to Dicks, BurgerKing or McDonalds.
13 Coins is well worth the money at 2am or later/earlier.
Expect to be treated as you are. If you are loud, drunk, obnoxios, expect to be treated with a long wait, slow service or maybe never seated, in hopes you will leave.
On the other hand, if you appreciate good food, are willing to let the chef have the time to prepare your food, and know that dining costs more than Dicks, you will be in for a treat.

I so much enjoyed sitting at the "bar" and watching the chefs prepare my meal. The crab was excellent and highly recommended. A little expensive, but very taste satifying. Parking...Hmmm???

This place is not a place to take a date. They are open 24 hours but don't go in there just for coffee. They have a minumium order of $20.00 they can be expensive.

Let me say that again. 13 Coins is the King of late night dining! 24/7 this restaurant offers so much more than the average. The staff puts on a great performance and treats guests very well. It really doesn't matter what your in the mood for because the menu covers so many tastes. This is a fun place to meet with friends after bar hopping and clubbing. The atmosphere doesn't put you to sleep and can be crouded. For couples, Irecommend seating at the bar, where you may even feel like your Royalty.

Don't take some of the "too expensive" reviews too seriously. Yes, if you decide to go to 13 coins, expect to spend a bill. One of the posters (cindylou, I believe,) complained about the $6.50 minimum and $2.50 split plate charge and the fact that they discourage people from filling up on free bread as a way to save money. They are well within their right to discriminate, they are running a fine dining 24 hour restaurant, it is understood that you are coming there to "dine" not to "feed".
My wife and I discovered this well hidden restaurant because we work at night and often have to work on our birthday and anniversary. We love this restaurant because we can actually have a five star dinner at 1 am. We love the atmosphere and the fact that the entire restaurant is on display in the preparation of our food.

ATTENTION REVIEWERS: For the benefit of those who are reading these reviews, please be fair and list WHICH 13 Coins is being picked or panned. The 13 Coins in Seatac is by far superior to the downtown Seattle location. I have heard nothing but bad reviews about the downtown/Boren location but very good reviews of the Seatac location. I have been to the airport location in Seatac many times and have had good service and good food with reasonable consistency. Although, I too, like a previous reviewer, had a bowl of vegetable soup that was served lukewarm and tasted like it was from a can. AND...occasionally, the wait staff can be aloof and unprofessional. To be fair, I normally get good service from a smiling face.

I would like to add that I can echo the thoughts of others in saying that if you're reviewing the restaurant purely on the food, then yes, it is definitely overpriced. However, I must say that one a cold, windy, wet night, nothing is more comforting than to settle into one of those wonderful high-backed leather chairs at the counter and let the warmth of the kitchen thaw you out, as the tinkling of china and chatter soothes the winter-weary soul. So from Nov-Mar if you're lonely and looking for somewhere warm, delicious and entertaining to be, 13 Coins is definitely worth the money.

Also, one more thing, different chefs have different styles, one may completely bury a dish in cheese or oil, whereas another chef will use his ingredients in much more appropriate proportions. All chefs (or line cooks) are not created equal. The first chef Hugo or "Chili" as he is aptly nicknamed, is my personal favorite for his speed, accuracy and friendliness.

13 Coins is one of those places you would take out of town friends for a nice, late dinner and drinks on a cold, rainy Seattle evening.

After reading mixed reviews, I decided i'd have to try it and find out for myself. NEVER AGAIN!! I have heard they are "pricey"...but I assumed (obviously a bad idea) that there would be some reasonably priced entrees (such as salads, sandwiches, and the like) for my college friends and I. Mistake. Not only are they vastly overpriced, but there's an minimum order amount for each person. AND...you can't be seated until your entire party arrives. AND...they charge you 2.50 for split entrees and orders to go. When we asked for a refill of bread, the waitress replied that "looks like you still have some in the basket" - yeah, a mouthful sized heel piece! Drink refills were incredibly slow, as was the food delivery. Sure, it was pretty late, but - if you are going to advertize yourself as a fine dining esablishment which is open 24 hours, you better do it right all 24 hours!! I really wanted to like this place. But they have given me nothing to go on. The customer obviously does not come first - this resturant has an attitude, an overabundance of rules, and bad food. What more can I say?

Yes this place may seem dark and creepy and is located in what seems to be a dead end road, but once you're inside, the food and the service is amazing.

You wouldn't think a place that offers 24 hour dining would have much to offer... see Jack in the Box and Denny's. But 13 Coins is a nice place to dine, to take someone on a date, to go for drinks, or just to go to eat casually. They have a huge selection of food. I haven't tried everything, but the steaks are amazing and their Creme Brulee is to die for!

Don't let the creepy exterior stir you away from the lovely interior! This place is a must!

13 Coins have mastered the art of destroying simple, healthy breakfasts. My spinach omelet was swimming in a pool of oil, and contained a gross lumpy bechamel sauce. And they had the guts to charge $10 for ruining some eggs.
My friend had the worst eggs benedict he's ever had: greasy bread, wilted tomatoes.
Even the coffee tasted like socks.
We were frankly insulted that they'd offer this and then ask for money for it. A total disgrace.

I've eaten here twice after operas and the food was terrible both times. I had spaghetti once that was cold paired with incredibly watery marinara sauce. The second time I had fish and chips which was also cold and rubbery. I believe the the average price for these delicacies was roughly $16 each. I do like the ambience here and I suppose coming for a late night drink would be ok.

Well...I read the reviews, but decided to give it a try for myself. I had a cup of vegetable beef soup (a tea cup) practically all broth and tasted like it was from a can. I ordered Linguini with Dungenous crab sauce that consisted of Spahetti al fredo topped with grated parmesan cheese. There was so much cheese it was unbearable, and the crab was cold crab meat in the center top of the plate (not mixed in or made with the sauce). My date had Rainbow Trout that was very salty and full of bone in every bite. (and the title was boneless). It was accompanied with 2 slices of tomato and plain linguini (no sauce-dry). I did not eat my Spaghetti w/cheese crab and the waiter asked if I would like it without the cheese. I was not offered a different dish, but I didn't expect it.

For $80 we got well; Nothing. bad calamari, cooked vegetables ... oh wait there was chicken there some where underneath, that tasted like, well cooked chicken. Also this is the only restaurant that managed to spoil Crem Brule. On the positive note they do great coffe, too bad they are not in that business.

before an event, i took a large group of my friends here for dinner, beforehand raving about the atmosphere and the fun i have had before. we did make reservations and were able to compromise with the manager about a few things. everything was going well, however communicating with the waiter was difficult because of his abnoxious humor treating us as if we were children. also, what he recommended, i had never tried before so i decided to do so.... chicken parmigana? yuck. under the sauce was a breaded chicken patty that looked like it came from a costco's pack. aslo the fettucine this time was not creamy nor flavorful like before.... i think i will stick to late night visits

I don't think you'll find a better 24/7 offering within western Washington. My wife and I are 'regulars' at the Sea-Tac location and have always enjoyed taking at a seat at the chef's counter (1-6) for an amazing experience. The waitstaff are quick, fun and precise in delivering great service/food. The managers make sure they take care of any issue on the spot and the chefs prepare some amazing dishes (especially at 3:30 a.m.)! Where else can you munch on oysters and sip Opus One at that time of day?!

I have dined at many, many restuarants in Seattle and I have never has so much fun as I did at 13 Coins. My girlfriend and I went there after hearing the ads on KZOK and I must say it was terrific. I ordered the Crab Cakes for my appetizer and my girlfriend started with the prawn cocktail. Both were perfect. For our entrees I had Steak David and she had the salmon, both absolutely amazing. Be sure to ask for the big chairs in front of the chef's. Its a hoot!

I've dined at 13 Coins a couple of times, generally for late night dining. I have found the service to be consistently inattentative and rude. The prices are on the high side. Don't expect to be seated promptly if you go for late night dining. The food is mediocre at best. The parking is plentiful, though a bit sketchy. The atmosphere is great, and the booths are conducive to privacy and late night chats. Without question, this restaurant is one of the most overrated ones in Seattle - avoid it.

Basically an upscale 24-hour diner with average food and mediocre (at best) service. We waited at least 15 minutes after being seated to get a menu or get our drink orders taken. Finally a waiter appeared with menus. The food was nothing special. Entrees ranged from about $13 to $45. Appetizers about $12 to $15. After the meal, the waiter pulled a "rush job" to get us out. For a place with so many high-priced menu items I would expect much, much better service.

I like to go to 13 coins at midnight on thanksgiving.

I like to sit in the high-backed romulan-style chairs at the counter and smoke cigarettes and drink wine and watch the cooks cook.

I recommend the Steak Sinatra (always order dishes named for musicians). Almost everything on the menu is overpriced, but your only other choices for 24 hr dining downtown are Minnie's Cafe and The Hurricane.

Very attentive excellent waitstaff.

Do you like standing around for ungrateful staff, then you will love the 13 Coins. Misguided by co-workers I took my wife there after a show, three other couples suffered along with us for over half an hour while waiting for hostess to finally decide the mostly empty booths could be occupied. Our server with an attitude came by after another 20 minutes handed us menus and then impatiently stood waiting to take our order. The food when it arrived was dropped by the same server, the re-done order showed up an hour later, promptly followed by the bill before we even took our first bite. This establishment likes to put on a showy face but prefers to treat people like theyre at a McDonalds but with much higher prices. BEWARE this place unless you enjoy waiting around for a dawdling attitude-ridden staff.

I have been hearing Bob Rivers of KZOK raving about 13 Coins so I took my family there today for Father's Day. Bob...YOU DA MAN! We had a blast! Food was amazing and our server was the best. They even had this magician going around and my kids loved him. Sad to admit I have been living in Seattle all my life and had never gone to this icon. Those days are over! I'm now a regular. I had the special: Filet Mignon that was as good as I've tasted and my wife had the Halibut which she said was the best she's ever had. My kids split a huge plate of pasta and they loved it! Prices are fair and I love that I didn't have to search for a parking place. I hate that! Thanks 13 Coins for making my Father's Day one of the best ever!

Excellent food. But don't think your on your way to a Dennys. The food is tasty, high quality, and they offer an extensive menu. However, you're being served by nicely dressed, well-kept waiters, bread served with olive oil before meals etc. It's a classy/casual little place for all hours and all kinds of meals. Prices are on the higher side for late night dining for most, but all the food, selection and service are worth it.

I have been living in the Seattle area my whole life... I LOVE 13 Coins, and have since I was a little girl. It used to be the special place that my dad took me, now my husband and I have weekly dates there. It is dark, and can be busy, and not everything is great on the menu. But if you have patience, and enjoy some atmosphere, it is a great place to be. I love the Club sandwich!

My sister recommended 13 coins to me when I wanted some late night dining with my boyfriend for our 1 year anniversary. I should have gone with Denny's instead. At least you go there expecting ok service and ok prices. Here, you pay outrageous prices for horrible food. It took an hour and a half to get seated, and the front desk was completely rude, as was the service. I would not recommend this place to my worst enemy.

Pros: None

I first went to 13 Coins when I was about 13 (I'm 39 now), loved it then, love it now. I almost always get either the Chicken Parmesana or Chicken Piccata, and the zabaglioni for dessert, and it always tastes perfect. The atmosphere hasn't changed a bit since back then, which is comforting in many ways. (Annoying occasionally, too, but hey, I can deal with it.) A traditional favorite!
