Probably won't go back. Good but nothing special and the food wasn't as fresh as I like. Also had trouble finding something appealing and interesting on the menu.

Great spot, had a delicious meal, and great service. would definitely recommend for a nice downtown dining experience. Sazerac is a whimisical place, a place to drink 5-7 nice cocktails with your supper, or a place to grab a darn good bloody mary with brunch. It's downtown, so expect a nice meal that certainly isn't cheap - but is very reasonable priced for downtown Seattle restaurant.

I didnt have a reservation for a wednesday night so we had to wait 30 minutes which is fine, makes you think it must be worth the wait. i had found the menu online and was impressed and looking forward to southern food with a gourmet feel. We were on a rare date night downtown and wanted a good meal, willing to pay for it. Once we were seated we were given happy hour menus (at 7pm) and thought how nice they have happy hour but that was the whole menu, burgers, pizzas and salads. Not the "southern"food i was expecting.. We asked our server for a dinner menu and she looked bewildered that we would ask for that, we told her never mind and ordered drinks and some mini burgers and pizzas. If you were looking for cheap they were only $2 but not the nice meal i was looking forward to. The burgers were cold. We told another busser and he still left 2 plates of barely eaten burgers on our table while we ate our pizzas. If we said we arent going to eat them why would we have to look at them for the rest of the meal. The pizzas were good, Our drinks came as we were almost finished eating. We were never asked how was our food, although the burgers were sitting on the edge the whole time. So our nice elegant meal was cold meat and $2 pizzas. As I walked thru the restaurant to go to the restrooms I glanced around to notice that everyone, in all there nice business attire, was eating burgers pizzas and salads. I thought maybe only our burgers were cold but i saw other barely touched plates of them being collected as well. The service was about the worst ive ever had anywhere. that is the main reason i am writing my very first restaurant review. I was really confused and shocked and we were out of there in a half an hour.

After walking around and just finding some random place to dine like we usually do after a show on a friday night, we stumbled on this little gem. We were hesitant at first because the place practically looked deserted but went in anyways, what heck it's an adventure right? We were seated right away. Usually when going into a restaurant you have a few seconds up front before they bring you back, it was probably because they were slower that evening. Our server was great and we had our drinks very quickly. We ordered the beef tar tar and I got the butternut squash with goats cheese, while my boyfriend enjoyed some sort of deep fried chicken with mashed potatoes collard green and veggies. It was very southern. Everything tasted great. And the portions were huge. Thankfully my dish was a small plate at a very affordable $8, so I was able to enjoy the two huge bowls of potatoes and greens they put in the middle of our table. When they say large plate they really mean it. Dessert was good to and the wine selection was pretty good. Overall we had a good time with a friendly server who wasn't over attentive. We would defintly go back.

My wife and I had dinner at Sazerac last night because we felt like having some southern comfort food during a rainy & windy night. I was a bit skeptical about the restaurant?s service because of some recent reviews here on Citysearch. However, we were very pleasantly surprised!

After being greeted very warmly by the hostess, we were seated in a booth of our choice. Our waitress introduced herself promptly, drinks arrived quickly and so did our food. My wife had the catfish and I had the scallops with an extra side of brussel sprouts. The food was very tasty and we enjoyed our meal.

Sazerac has a great atmosphere ? it is painted in warm colors and soft music was playing. Despite the reviews, we found the service to be attentive, quick, and friendly ? if maybe a bit inexperienced ? and we were able to enjoy a romantic evening out.

We went there for Happy Hour...well, I thought we did. The guy at the reception was pleasant and polite. Everything was great until we got a table. The server (I am talking about you, Baldie!) was horrible. Happy Hour menu was horrible. $4 draft beer? What's happy about that? And there was no price on any of the food menu for Happy Hour. We were still willing to try after we saw flaming stone ovens....but the server did not come back to get our order after he slammed a glass of beer in front of me. So we left. That's just too bad. It looks pretty promising for pizza and great atmosphere, but when the service is that bad, nothing looks appealing.

A sazerac is a drink from New Orleans, just so you know. The food here is great New Orleans/ Southern fare. Catfish, ribs, potatoes, and other tasty treats. The atmosphere is light and lofty and kind of hip. A good place to meet others after work for drinks or a tasty dinner.

We took our daughter to this establishment for her milestone 18th birthday. We made our reservation early and called ahead of time to insure that well behaved children were welcome. We were informed they were and that children frequented their establishment. When we arrived our server was GREAT and the food was pretty good as well. HOWEVER, when my child fell and started crying we were ASKED TO LEAVE!!! Can you believe that!! If you are looking for a nice dinner to enjoy with your family do NOT visit SAZERAC

I recently went to Sazerac for business meetings for both breakfast and dinner. Dinner was delicious and I highly recommend the pork belly. The server was very attentive and personable. Breakfast on the other hand was seriously lacking. It took about 30 minutes just to submit our coffee orders let alone order breakfast. There were perhaps 6 other tables that were occupied, three servers, and yet it took forever. Thankfully we had time, but the service was seriously lacking, not once did the server come by and ask us how everything was, nor did he offer refills on our drinks until we were done with our meal. For a restaurant to charge the prices they do with nearly non existent service... It was pretty appalling. The other thing to keep in mind, if you check out this restaurant, is the limited menu selection. Considering there are so many amazing restaurants in Seattle, given the option, I would go elsewhere before coming here.

Pros: evening service

Tried it, loved it, can't wait to go back. After 1st reading about Sazerac on City Search, I went with my sisters for my birthday. We all loved ordering from the unusual menu choices, and the setting was fun, and casual even though we were dressed for the 5th Ave. theater (which was just down the street). The service was super friendly and you could tell the employees liked the food and were happy to suggest.

A group of friends and I went out for happy hour cocktails. It was very busy so we forgave the lengthy wait and brusque attitude when we were finally acknowledged. When our drinks did arrive most were incorrect. When I had asked to have my drink re-mixed the server argued with me saying that it was correct. I had to explain that I shouldn't taste citrus or see citrus pulp floating in a dry gin martini with an olive (My guess was that the bartender in her haste had not rinsed the shaker after the previous cocktail). My friend had ordered one of their signature cocktails which was completely wrong, she asked for a plain house martini. When the bill arrived she had been charged for the more expensive drink. When we brought this error to the server's attention she snidely commented that there was only a 50 cent difference. Unfortunately for her this comment resulted in a huge difference in her tip. Three of the five of us had worked through college in the industry and are known amongst our friends as huge tippers. This is the first time we've ever stiffed a server.
We ended up leaveing and going to the cute Thai place across the street for great cocktails and amazing service.

Cons: Horrendous service

We went in just for dessert. We think that the bartender would have rather not had us there. Why? Your guess is as good as mine. He totally ignored us. Take the order and leave. Bring the food and leave. Bring the check and leave. Nice work dude, your mama must be proud. Uninspired, Tired food, lame service...

I've been wanting to try Sazerac for years and tonight I was finally given the opportunity. I wish I could get the last 90 minutes of my life back. The experience of sipping grossly over priced cocktails ($12 for the cucumber sensation? Come on.) amid a lavishly pallid decor was only outdone by the drab flavors of the blue marlin fish of the day dish. Avoid this dish if possible.

Perfectly nice service, but I unfortunately can't recommend Sazerac. My taste buds were bored to tears.

Everything was perfect from the ease of making a reservation online to the last morsel!

If you are looking for something a bit different, but do not wish to sacrifice flavor or service I strongly recommend you check out this Gem!

Special thanks to our server Shayla who was knowledgeable and attentive.

The menu is not broken down into the familiar appetizers and entrees but rather lets you build your own meal based on how much you want of what. Like a wonderful piece of Jazz it becomes a composition unique to the individual.

My dining partner enjoyed a single oyster (you can order just the number you want) and we shared the wedge of oozing St. Andre brie from the Tasty Little Morsel's portion of the menu. My partner then indulged in a demitasse (more like a bowl at nearly any other venue!)

as a main course I had the ribs with sweet potato fries and my partner had the catfish. We were both wonderfully pleased with our meals and might have let the other have a taste if we werent feeling so selfish!

All of this combined with a very nice bottle of wine for just about $100 was a real bargin for downtown Seattle... and yet, we never once felt that it was anything but the best!

I strongly recommend that you give this wonderful place a try!

I'm not one for "pretty food". I could care less how it looks as long as it's manageable and yummy. This place focuses too much on presentation and not enough on taste. Also, I'm 5 feet tall and 100lbs - after my lunches there, I can usually still eat a burger (i.e. not enough of the pretty food). Tried breakfast once, it's good. If you must go, do breakfast. Service was good, place is very pretty/hip/modern, but darn it the food is a thumbs down.

Four of us went to Sazerac after finding it on the 25 for 25 list of restaurants. We wanted a nice meal in a somewhat casual setting that allowed for us to do "family style" and share various dishes. The wait staff was busy but great and very supportive of our sharing.

In all the food was good, not great. The Focaccia pre dinner was supposedly "homemade" but wasn't exactly tasty. They would have been better off not providing any bread with the meal.

The app of triple cream cheese and toasted butttered bread was simple yet delicious and the hush puppies were awesome. Who would have though hush puppies and molasses would go well together?? We feared the puppies would be dry, but they were AWESOME!!!

The crab cakes were okay. The hint of spice was great, the fried green tomatoe was delicious, the combo not our favorite. The cakes were missing something. Probably crab is my guess.

The gumbo was cold but tasty. Nothing too out of the ordinary or fabulous to make me order it again.

We shared the catfish, the "funky pizza: ham and sage", and the pork ribs. Order the catfish, it's amazing. The funky pizza had amazing ham and the combo of the cheese blend, sage, and salty fresh ham was incredible. Finally, the ribs were nicely plated and the sweet potatoe fries along side were devoured. The meat was nice and also devoured.

Finally, dessert. There was only one ooey gooey chocolate cake left (which is the main reason we chose the restaurant) and we were all very disappointed. To make up for the loss, the chef added some free extra chewy molasses cookies (superb!) and berries along side. We also got the coffee ice cream. It was by far the best coffee ice cream I've ever had and tasted like coffee, imagine that!

In all, Sazerac was great. Some stuff a bit bland for me, but the setting is comfortable and very open, the busy waitstaff was kind and the fod was not at all typical to seattle.

My wife and I visited Saerac for the 25 for $25 dinner. The restaurant was supposed to have valet parking, but their lot was full, so we had to drive around looking for a spot. Once inside, we were seated promptly, but it took us a little longer to order than we would have liked. No big deal, though, thus far.

For my starter, I ordered the Caesar Salad with Garlic Crostini. The salad was ok, but was a little on the bland side. The crostini had an incredibly depressing looking anchovy on top that looked like it came straight from a can. Don't get me wrong, the anchovy was good, it just reminded me of the 'Where's the Beef?' commericals of the 1980s. Now came the wait...

We waited for at least an hour to get our entrees. In the interim, our waitress came over and asked if we needed anything. We said we would like more water. The waitress kept fluttering by, giving our table a quick glance now and again. Ten to fifteen mintues later, I had to flag down someone to give us the water we had asked for. When we finally got our entrees, my wife's butternut squash ravioli was cold. When the waitress came by to ask us if everything was ok, we just looked at each other for a few long seconds and said yes. We were both afraid that if we returned the dish, we might have to wait another hour to get it back. I had the catfish, which was the highlight of the dinner. The lemon whipped potatoes and accompanying sauce were great, and, luckily, warm. We finished the dinner off with gooey chocolate cakes, which were pretty good. The service got a bit better at the end, but the combination of no available parking, bad initial service, no water refills without pestering the staff (some of whom were just standing around drying glasses or talking), and one cold dinner led me to rate Sazerac with a 3. The only saving grace was that the food was pretty tasty. I doubt if I will return, but, if I do, it will be for that reason alone.

The service got a bit better at the end, but the combination of no available parking, bad initial service, no water refills without pestering the staff (some of whom were just standing around drying glasses or talking), and one cold dinner led me to rate Sazerac with a 3. The only saving grace was that the food was pretty tasty. I doubt if I will return, but, if I do, it will be for that reason alone.

Pros: Decent food

Cons: Inconvenient downtown location, bad service, cold food

I've always had good food and a fun time at this jovial and creative food joint. You'll get different fare than the usual PNW menu items found in most other restaurants of this price range and trendiness. I like their 'Southern/Cajun" flavors and they really make an effort to make the usual ingredients (clams, crab cakes, polenta/grits, salmon, sausage, pizza, ice cream)...alot more inventively prepared...and all I've had there has been tasty, a good value and beautifully presented!

This place has potential. A group of girlfriends went out for a birthday celebration and feasted on the 25 for $25 menu. I thought the food was good and everyone enjoyed their dinners (the gumbo, mushroom fricassee, butternut squash ravioli, catfish, chocolate cake and sorbets were all given the thumbs up). The cocktails here are rather expensive (can't even get the cheap house stuff if you wanted) - made me feel like I was dining in New York City instead of Seattle. But we are a young group so maybe older diners with larger salaries can afford multiple glasses of $8 wine. The waiter really diminished our dining experience. He was obviously irritated that we were ordering off the 25 for $25 menu and rushed us through our ordering. If anyone had questions or was a little indecisive he would answer curtly and move on to the next order as fast as possible. I understand it's the dinner rush but at least give me a minute to decide what I want to eat! This restaurant is pretty small but the tables aren't crammed in to fit more so you're not bumping up against your fellow diners. I did see some people being seated in the bar area for dinner which I imagine left a lot to be desired with regards to atmosphere. I would come back but probably on an off hour so I don't have to bother with over-worked waiters.

Pros: Good food, great hostess

Cons: Rushed waiters with snotty attitudes

Hostess was unhelpful, so we sat in the bar, our waitress was slow and inattentive. The menu is kind of strange, not a lot of things to pick from, and a lot of it is trendy foo-foo crap that you've never heard of. Overpriced and portions were small.

I went here based on a coworkers recommendation, but was thouroughly disappointed. My "tangerine buerre blanc crabcakes" had no hint of tangerine, but did have a strange cinnamon-esque spice mixed with the crab-- a bad taste which overpowered any dungeness taste there would have been.

The caesar salad dressing is bland, and the lettuce is served whole leaf style, you cut it up yourself, most inconvenient during a business lunch. Lunch service was slow, and my drink wasn't refilled until I was ready to leave. What a disappointment!

We had a very large group for dinner on a Wednesday night. However, every item and second-choice item our table asked for was out.. this was on top of the exceptionally long wait time for our wine and dinner choices. However, not only did the manager offer her apologies, the meal and wine was on the house. When we finally did get a meal and a bottle, it was certainly mouth-watering. The food was excellent and the attention the staff gave to making our nights memorable as a great (as opposed to tortorous) experience motivated all of us to return with a larger crowd and larger tips.

Pros: Value, Staff

Cons: Crowds

The appetizers are creative and colorful. The drink menu had a great unique selection (vanilla lemon drop!). After having some hush puppies and oysters, I was certain that Alexandria's may be replaced for our favorite cajun in Seattle.

Then dinner came... such a let down. It's not that it was bad, but it certainly paled in comparison to the appetizers and drinks. The 4 of us tried 3 dishes. I had the beef tenderloin, which i would suggest but the blue cheese au gratin potatoes were tasteless. My buddy had the ribs, which had little meat but he liked the sauce. The ladies had the flash fried catfish, which was the best of the meals but still nothing to write home about.

Service was not only prompt but incredibly pleasant. I'll probably go back and try lunch, the staff alone have inspired me to try it again.

It seems as if the theme of seatle is to have a whacky place serving contemporary American food (see other reviews). This place was actually a bit more sophisticated than the university based eatery. Service was very professional and attentive. The food was really good. Pork back ribs were excellent and my husbands ham and cheese macaroni was whimsical and interesting. Pretty good place in a neat setting. We would recommend it to any friends coming into town.

We had a wonderful time at this restaurant! From the moment we stepped in we were greated by extremely friendly waitstaff/host etc and never felt ignored. The food was incredible! I recommend the ribs while my husband loved the salmon with pancetta. Once again the service was great-prompt and attentive throughout the meal-very satisfying. Loved the new dessert menu. This place is lively and fun with a great menu, atmosphere and staff. Highly recommended!

Sazerac has an amazing happy hour! Great food, great drinks and great prices! We ordered a combo of items - chicken, fries, veggies, & pizza. Everything was really yummy! The only problem I had was the server's attitude. She seemed to be really mad to be working and was actually pretty rude to us. I'm hoping she was just having a bad day because I don't think all the servers are like that. But, the happy hour made up for her bitter attitude!

Everyone visiting (or living near) Seattle should visit Sazeracs! You WILL come back! I highly recommend sitting at the bar and ordering a Flatliner -- Not only is this the best espresso drink made, but watching the bartender flame the drink and make sparks fly is worth the price of this delectable drink! Order one and you are quarenteed to feel special!!! After three years of testing, I can attest that no one makes a Flatliner as good as Sazeracs.
The food is excellent, creative, cooked exactly to order and has a beautiful presentation. This is only topped by the fantastic service!! Megan greeted us with such a genuinely warm welcome that we knew we would have an awesome evening. Greg, the bar manager, took excellent care of us that we had to stay at the bar!
Sazeracs, THANK YOU for such a memorable evening! Heres to many repeat visits!
