"This place is convenient for an early dinner before shows at Benaroya Hall. We hit the Happy Hour in full swing so it was noisy, filled with downtown office workers in large groups. This was a Tuesday. There is a good selection of fried fish and chips, sourdough pasta, pizza, salads and burgers. The bar wall displays a myriad of liquor bottles beautifully lit. We don't drink cocktails so I can't comment on the quality. Two of us split a cod and chips, and an interesting pizza topped with smoky bacon, apple and dried cranberries. They did not skimp on the thick-cut chunks of bacon. The chips (fries) were great too! The portions are large so three slices of pizza went home in a box."

"Highly recommended by friends so we made a reservation for a Sat at 5:30. The small and medium plates all sound great so it was hard to decide. Most memorable were the chili cumin pork ribs, so tender with great flavor and heat! The sardines Escabeche were a little "fishy" for my taste and I normally love fish. The black cod in the cha ca was deliciously silky but the bowl of vermicelli needed a little broth for moisture which the mango dipping sauce did not provide. Companion''s pork vermicelli bowl was better with a side of Imperial Rolls that were moist and more flavorful than any I've had at other Vietnamese places. I can't comment on the cocktails as we don't drink hard liquor but the bar was packed with happy customers."

Fond memories of food in Syria, Lebanon and Persia are transplanted to today's Capitol Hill in Seattle, Washington. <br /><br />Enjoy Man’aeesh and other traditional street food from our takeout window, a snack and a cocktail in our luxurious lounge, or a relaxed, elegant, meal in our well-appointed dining room.<br />

"I chose this place when friends asked to go to dinner somewhere with good food where we could actually have conversation. We used to tell people Mamnoon is one of our favorite restaurants. However, on this occasion, the music was too loud, diners were loud and it was early in the evening so drunken folks should not have been a problem. To be fair, we did dine here on a Saturday. We had to almost yell and pay close attention to hear our dining companions across the table! The starter delivered first was hummus which I did not order. The muhamarra was great as usual but the filled dumplings were bland. There were six main dishes, two with eggplant which we don't like so we had beef/lamb meatballs and shish taouk (chicken on skewers). The chicken had good flavor but was dry. Unfortunately I can no longer say this is one of our favorite restaurants and would only recommend it with caution."

"The space is beautiful but I can only give food and service a good rating. The cabbage salad with hazelnuts and cheese sounded better than it tasted. My tagliatelle with venison ragu was good but arrived warm, not hot. The chocolate pudding on a wafer with olive oil gelato was on the precious side and I really couldn't taste any olive oil flavor. One woman took our drink order and another came to get our food order but didn't say she was our server. My husband's prosciutto appetizer was delivered by a runner but our server never came by to offer bread to go with it. The wait for our entree was on the long side and I noticed the people at the next table sat a long time with no food. True it was a Saturday evening but we were seated early, at 5:40."
