Harvest Vine has long been a favorite of mine in Seattle – but under specific conditions. If I can’t sit on the top floor of the restaurant, I’d rather just go back another time. I know that might sound picky of me but if you’ve been there before then I think you can understand where I’m coming from. The bottom section of the restaurant doesn’t have nearly the same appeal that the top section does. The best seat in the house (in my opinion) is at the bar where you’ve got a front row seat to all the action. It’s like watching a symphony right in front of your eyes but rather than instruments being played the chefs sing and whistle while plating gorgeous dishes from the smallest and cutest little sauté pans that you’ve ever seen.
During the summer on warm nights the garage door walls are rolled up and you’re able to fully enjoy a beautiful Seattle summer night. It’s a great spot year round and should definitely be on the top of your list if you haven’t already been there.
If you’re a beet fan definitely get the beets to start. You’ll want to sop up all the yummy olive oil and vinegar with bread once the beets are gone. If mushrooms are on the menu get those for sure! You really can’t go wrong here. I’m always amazed at the wonderful creations the make and each time I go back there’s a new menu.
