Owner operated by Chef Kevin Davis and wife Teresa, The Steelhead Diner is a smart casual restaurant located in the heart of Seattle's Pike Place Market. Come visit our modern take on the classic American diner - and enjoy contemporary comfort food created with a Northwest twist. Soak up stunning views while enjoying our exclusively North West wine and beer list. Also available: a full bar, and a large selection of non-alcoholic choices. Watch nightly as Davis and his crew create menu items in the restaurant's interactive open kitchen surrounded by views of neighboring Puget Sound. Kids welcome. Family friendly.

"I met a friend here for lunch and ordered my usual chicken and Andouille gumbo. It is consistent so I knew I would enjoy it. Although right next door to Rachel's Ginger Beer in the market, they don't offer her sodas on their menu. We didn't drink alcohol since it was early in the day but opted for lemonade which tasted fresh, not out of a bottle. Overall a satisfactory meal and I chose it for the prime location rather than the culinary aspect of the menu."

Bar Sajor is centered around an untraditional, stoveless open kitchen featuring a wood oven and fireplace. It serves a menu that focuses on our wood-fired kitchen and the unparalleled bounty of the Puget Sound region. Our menu changes daily, and we do our best to showcase the beauty of our region's food ingredients. We have a bar that features a thoughtfully curated beverage list featuring mostly small production wines, as well as cocktails and sodas made by our team.

"I had read some underwhelming reviews but wanted to see for myself so dined here Sunday. Despite everything being cooked in the wood fire oven, nothing we ate had any char or smoky flavor. The roasted zucchini with marble potatoes had no carmelization, were frankly boring. The muscatel aioli was the best part of the dish which cost $16. The Chuleton de Buey got rave reviews and the ribeye tasted good but again there was no char which in my mind is the best part of a steak. Desserts were decent but not great. For all the money we spent, at least one dish should have been amazing. None were. A friend opined Matt Dillon's food is not that great. She was right. The space is beautiful and I really wanted Bar Sajor to be great. Too bad it's not."

Altura Restaurant brings the seasonal emphasis of Italian cooking to the bounty of the Northwest with artisan technique. Guests enjoy the elegance of the freshest ingredients, simply prepared and perfectly presented. Chef Lockwood crafts his weekly-changing menu to celebrate the best, most seasonal products available, highlighting Northwest produce and foraged items where appropriate, as well as specialty Italian ingredients.<br /><br />Similarly, the 80-bottle wine list strives to combine highlights from the Northwest with Old World selections from small producers in a range of styles. Wine Director Guy Kugel has hand-selected each label, and will pair wine flights, glasses, or bottles to suit the desires of each guest.<br /><br />Altura encourages its guests to dine in the Italian style by providing a tasting menu coursed dinner format, whereby the guest chooses selections from three, four, or five course sections, or opt for our 7-course Chef's Tasting Menu.

"My husband and I dined here on our anniversary as we know it's pricey but the food and service is excellent. With so many great dining choices in Seattle, it takes an exceptional level of attention to details to rise above the rest. Altura was amazing in both food and service. Chef Nathan's gnocchi with lamb, beef and iberico ragu was so delicious, I could have eaten just that and been happy. The spot prawn crudo pleased the eye as well as the tastebuds, being exquisitely presented as if in a food magazine. There was not a single misstep in our dining experience. The food and service feels like fine dining but this restaurant is casual enough that Seattleites who deem "dressing up" a distateful chore, will feel welcome."
