The quality of the food here is amazing, and the cost is extremely reasonable. I went a few weeks ago and actually expected there to be less food, or lesser quality as most restaurants have done that during the downturn of the economy.

In fact, the food was BETTER.

Great place, don't miss out.

I've been here several times, only for breakfast. To die for is their pear, almond coffee cake. But, everything we've tried has been very fresh and good. Very good espresso. It's in good walking distance of all the shops on Broadway, which you can peruse after breakfast.

A month ago my husband and I went on a walking date (we live on Capitol Hill) and strolled into Table 219 for the first time. We had such a GREAT meal and I was so pleasantly surprised by their menu. So many places these days feel like they have the exact same thing. The menu had creative offerings and everything we had was so tasty. Also really enjoyed Gary our host for the evening. Went back again this week for brunch with a friend and had an equally fantastic time. I'm hooked now. So great to find a new place in our neighborhood. Love it.

This was an amazing night with my wife. Truffle oil popcorn was so good. When I remarked on this to the server they brought us out another serving. I'm all about that. Deviled eggs were a surprise in there deliciousness but the duck confit nachos were just freakin' great. Round that out with a healthy pour into the wine glass and some of the better veal this world has to offer and we really had a great date night. We're taking friends back there. You should go.

We went last night for my 42nd bday dinner before a night on the town and the staff was fantastic, handling our party of (get this) 16 without a sweat.

Those of my friends who had not been before are planning to go back immediately- we basically ordered most of the menu and shared, there wasn't a bad dish on the table, it was all top notch! The food, the service and the really fun and relaxed experience made for the BEST party!

Loved it!

Menu is interesting and the food well-prepared at this Broadway spot. Great people-watching from the tables by the windows, or the outdoor tables when the weather holds. The place closes pretty early though, making it a poor option for after-movie dining.

My husband and I recently decided to try out a new breakfast spot for our anniversary. We arrived at Table 219 to have brunch last Saturday. We were seated fairly quickly by a grumpy waitress who didn?t say more than a couple of words to us. To say she was ?unpleasant? would be an understatement. We both ordered off the menu and sat on the outdoor patio. Our food arrived and we couldn?t have been more disappointed. My husband ordered a fried egg, bacon and French Toast. It seemed like a great deal for all the food you get. The egg was tiny with two small pieces of burnt bacon with what looked like fried sourdough bread (French toast). It was not appealing. I ordered the Greek Omelet which sounded great from the description in the menu. It consisted of underdone / slimy eggs mixed with feta cheese. The ?Greek? veggies was a tomato sauce with a few Kalamata olives and capers thrown in. It was cold and tasted like eggs drenched in cold salsa. It was disgusting. I would never go there again. Not sure where all the good ratings are coming from.

4 of us went on Sunday for brunch. I was impressed by the choices on the menu, very creative and the combination of ingredients sound excellent (e.g. charizo + monchego or brie/apple/avocado omelets) The execution, however, wasn't as great as expected. We all thought our omelets were a bit too blend/dry, and the egg Benedict was just so-so. the yam fries were excellent, but everything else we ordered were just all right, 3-4 stars decent to good, but not 5-star "wow". would go back, but wouldn't consider in the same league as Cafe Besalu or 611 Supreme

2 of us went for brunch on a saturday at noon, no wait which was great. service was attentive and we loitered for 2 hours after we finished without any type of complaint from the staff.
food was very good, their eggs benedict was fabulous and i'm not usually a fan of eggs. the sauce is a tangy tomato based sauce and the potato pancake as a base is such a clever touch. delicious. the french toast was also excellent, really nice flavors and definitely something special.
i will say that i thought the portions were a little small and the dishes come with no sides. ie, french toast was 3 pieces of bread and toppings. eggs benedict had 2 small pieces of bread and a wedge of fruit. i'm a small gal and i was satisfied but not overly full. i'm pretty sure my husband would have been hungry after one of those dishes and would've needed a side.

We had read good reviews of this restaurant for Sunday brunch, so we were excited to give it a try. After we were seated, a server brought us water. Then we waited, and waited, and waited. Not a single employee would make eye contact with us as we sat there and sat there, and sat there. As we sat there for almost 15 minutes without even getting menus, other people were seated, brought drinks, and ordered. In such a small place like this, it was just amazing - it was like we weren't there. Finally we just gave up and left. I don't support restaurants that have no respect for their customers.

We can't afford to eat out much, but when we feel like splurging, we share the French toast with a side of bacon which is positively amazing! The bacon is thick-cut, not too smokey or fatty and cooked just right... not whimpy and not too crispy. The French toast is crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, plus the toppings are always fresh. Our favorite is the vanilla poached pears and the mixed berries are also great, but nothing good can come from the lemony bananas so just skip those. The service is fast and friendly and we always feel right at home, but no dishes to clean up! So, even if you're not a meat eater, the menu is small but varied enough to accommodate even the pickiest eater, and the price is right on! Just GO!

Cozy, fun brunch with wait staff that treats you like an old friend. Very welcoming atmosphere that's warm, friendly, and inviting. Instead of being treated like "you're lucky to be here" you actually feel like everyone is "happy to see you". Beyond the fab service, the food is AMAZING - orignal dishes with the best quality ingredients. I'm still dreaming about my egg and bacon sandwich with arugala....mmmmmm.

We go here almost every weekend. The service is great and the food is delicious! Big bonus- they have breakfast and lunch available on their weekend brunch menu. The bread salad is amazing, as well as the chicken skewers and lamb burger w/ sweet potato fries. The french toast was some of the best I have had. They use high quality ingredients in everything they make and it truly makes a difference. This place is a gem on Broadway, I won't go anywhere else!

My wife and read about El Greco in Seattle Magazine and we've been making a point to try all the top-rated breakfast spots. I ordered the garlic sausage frittata and my wife ordered the french toast of the day (a specialty at El Greco). My frittata was made with egg whites (because I am allergic to egg yolks) and I was happy that I didn't have to order it with Egg Beaters. My fritatta, while not traditional, was great. It was coated in a light cheese (can't remember the type but it wasn't the typical Jack or Cheddar) and it had slices of this garlic-chicken sausage that is probably a local product (maybe Isernio's?). The toast was made from an Italian rustic bread (I think) and it too was awesome.

My wife had the french toast which was served with a blueberry compote(?) and creme' fresh butter, unbelievable! Definitely the best french toast I've ever had, possibly the best breakfast I've ever had and I eat out A LOT. The french toast was slightly crispy on the edges with just the pefect texture in the middle. My wife also ordered the bacon which, I was told, was cut at the restaurant so it was slightly thick and very flavorful.

The waitress was attentive and quick and she seemed to know most of the other patrons.

We will definitely be back.

It's tradition for my coworkers and I to come up to El Greco on Fridays when they are open early for brunch (They are also open for brunch on Saturday and Sunday). I look forward to this day all week. The brunch here is amazing! My favorites are the el greco benedict, a unique spin on the traditional benedict, and the avocado & pepper jack omelette. You can always expect a new & delicious dish, as Stacey (one of the owners) promotes new specials weekly. And don't forget to come here for dinners Tuesday night for the 1/2 price bottles of wine!

Went to El Greco for dinner Saturday because of a coupon in the Entertainment Book of all things. GREAT MEAL. We will definitely be back. The server was very nice, the menu was resonably priced, and the food was great. Fantastic mezze plate, wonderful lamb, great bottle of wine. A lovely place too (frankly surprised something that nice exists on that block of cap hill).

I'll take people back to this one. Wonderful find!

Quality of the food was outstanding. Menu prices of the food choices was very reasonable or a (one $) on this sites rating scale. Definately will be back. Service was slightly better than average. The apparent popularity of the resturant kept the waiters very busy. Establishment was busy but we were seated fairly quickly. 16 year olds to 60 seemed to be the customers age range and that was sort nice not having very young children in the resturant. This made for a quiet enjoyable meal for adults. Single drawback to the business was parking availablity in the local area.

There are three things one must know about lamb:
1) It's too cute to eat, really.
2) I think it's usually to oily and gamey/"weird"
3) I love the lamb dishes at El Greco. Enough that I commonly make the mistake of ordering lamb at other places.
If you have an adventurous, yet focussed and self-aware, palette, El Greco will suit you just fine.
Oh, and their wine is half-off on tuesday nights.

We were seated quickly and our waitress was very friendly. At a friend's request, they made the eggs benedict without the canadian bacon, although this was only possible because the bacon was late to arrive that day. I had the avocado and pepper jack omelette with sour cream and pico de gallo. It was delicious and came with rosemary potatoes and sourdough toast. The toast wasn't great, but everything else was wonderful. It was relatively cheap as well. I would go back.

El Greco has been a favorite for at least 10 years - the best kept dining secret in town. Forget paying a fortune at the upscale restaurants - the food at El Greco always surpasses the finest dining establishments at a fraction of the price. The owners are incredibly friendly and make you feel right at home. Stephanie deserves "Server of the Decade" as she is the best in town. Go to El Greco - you will be stunned at how excellent it is and kick yourself for not having been there before.

I was lucky enough to be introduced to this place by an 'insider' and am I glad! The food is excellent more of an upscale Mediterranean fusion than true greek, this place has a perfect mix of menu items with fantastic prices.

The owners have really hit the mark and the place reflects the time and care they both put into the place- it positively glows with elegance.

Make sure you hit the happy hour (M-F 4-6) for half price appetizers and try one of their amazing drinks. And don't miss the outstanding brunch on weekends!

The Scene
Local art adorns the aqua-blue walls, setting the informal Mediterranean mood somewhere between cafe and bistro. Service is very friendly, but servers can be a bit overwhelmed during breakfast and dinner…
