Floor to ceiling glass doors gracefully invite shoreline vistas right to your table as you dine beneath grand ceilings lit by contemporary chandeliers. Chef Bev Gannon's newest venture offers a truly distinctive dining experience where traditional island flavors are embraced by the flair of her own personality delivering a taste of sophisticated culinary elegance right here on Maui. Savor more than just your dish as you indulge in decor rich in textures – touches of bamboo, marble, and lava rock compliment chic artwork and locally handcrafted accents.

"This place is always busy on the weekends for breakfast/brunch so be sure to make a reservation to avoid a wait. The food is delicious. The fruit bar is a great addition to your pancakes etc. It is loud & energetic so not a place for an intimate meal but wonderful service & food."

"We had a nice meal here and service was adequate. The atmosphere is the reason to go here. The pool in the middle of the room & the "rain" are interesting if not a little hokey. We were there for the live music which was vary good."

"This is our 2nd year celebrating New Year's Eve at Aqua. They do a very nice job of making the evening feel special. Good service. Celebratory hats are given out before midnight where you can see the Space Needle fireworks from the the restaurant. A very nice night!"

It's difficult to say what is most appealing about the Barking Frog - the food, the wine, the atmosphere. All of the above earned this casual bistro featuring country fresh Northwest cuisine rave reviews. Honors have included "Restaurant of the Year", "Most Innovative Wine List" and "Wine Grand Award" awards, presented by the Washington Wine Commission. Delectable dishes entice guests to linger in the light-filled dining room or to gather around the fireplace. While in the summer, lunch and dinner are served in the courtyard. <br /><br />Wine tasting in Fireside Cellars - Many wineries are open for public tastings, others are not. However, there is one place where you can relax with friends and fellow guests to taste the finest that Woodinville Wine Country has to offer - Fireside Cellars at Willows Lodge. Join us from 4PM-11PM Sunday-Thursday and 4PM-12AM Friday and Saturday.

ART Restaurant and Lounge<br />Inspired by the Hotel's collection of works by the Northwest's foremost contemporary artists, its proximity to Seattle Art Museum and our chef's creative flair, ART Restaurant and Lounge celebrates authentic Pacific Northwest cuisine with unique global influences.<br /><br />With a setting as thoughtfully designed as a work of art, the restaurant's interior is a highly detailed sculpture featuring woods native to the Pacific Northwest. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer sweeping views of Elliott Bay and the Olympic Mountains. <br /><br />Acclaimed local chef Kerry Sear returns to Four Seasons with his best-source approach, which incorporates fresh, locally produced ingredients into menus designed for a signature dining experience. Sear works with local organic growers, foragers and independent specialists to introduce an unexpected twist to Northwest fare.

Tango Restaurant and Lounge serves Latin inspired cuisine and cocktails in a fun, sophisticated 1908 brick building on the cusp of Capitol Hill. From the Tango front door it is just a short walk to the Convention Center, Paramount Theater and ACT Theater. Tango is a family owned restaurant that prides itself on great paella, ceviche and mojitos. <br />Come on in and enjoy!

Caffé Corretto is an Italian staple consisting of a shot of espresso and a pour of liquor, usually grappa or amaro. <br /><br />At Corretto, we bring you this marriage of coffee and liquor with interesting, modern corretto twists, a carefully selected amaro and grappa section, and great coffee from Slate Coffee Roasters. <br /><br />Our kitchen serves fresh pastas and house made raviolis using the best local and imported ingredients from Italy we can source. <br /><br />We want to be a part of your neighborhood experience and hope you join us soon—be it for coffee, cocktails, a glass of wine on our patio, or dinner with friends.<br /><br />Grazie Mille!<br />
