Goldfinch Tavern at Four Seasons Seattle

Approachable sophisticated Pacific Northwest cuisine, simply prepared using the finest regional ingredients and served in a dining room with maritime-inspired design and sweeping views of Elliott Bay.

Ethan Stowell and Four Seasons Hotel Seattle are thrilled to announce the name of their new restaurant collaboration: Goldfinch Tavern. Named for the state bird of Washington, the American goldfinch.

The upscale tavern pays homage to the city’s pioneer days, when taverns catered to lumberjacks and sailors alike, providing a place for travelers and locals to both socialize and conduct business, all while enjoying drinks and food.

"Came here for brunch with a friend right after I got engaged. They made me feel so special and even brought us some cookies with a "congratulations" message and a candle. The service from start to finish was amazing, such friendly and helpful staff. Quality of the produce was amazing and the food was absolutely delicious . Lots of options for those who want to indulge and also plenty of healthier options. Great atmosphere and overall A+ experience. Will absolutely be coming back here."

"Good food, service rushed and the prices expensive. Had a business dinner that cost 265.00 for two martini's, 2 salads, 2 entries and a 52 dollar bottle of white wine. What was interesting is when they brought the bill, they at that time let me know they added a 20% gratuity. It made the whole experience tacky. I normally give 25 to 30 % tip but didn't just because of how they approached the automatic tip for two people."

"We're glad to have tried this restaurant again, after a disappointing experience in July. The menu selection is much improved since then to include more items of interest. We really enjoyed every one of our choices. Our experience was also much enhanced (and we were able to stay long enough to appreciate dessert) by being seated at a table with actual leg room--something weirdly not true of every table in this establishment.
Service was, as always, solicitous.
So, we're likely to return, although the ambiance remains jarring. One would prefer to enjoy such delicious and pricey food in an atmosphere that did not feature a television screen in prominent view.

"This was my first visit to the Goldfinch Tavern. After hearing great things about the dining experience, I was suitably impressed after this visit. The service was impeccable and the selections during the lunch hour were diverse enough to meet with each diners needs. I would highly recommend for lunch. On my next visit I will have to sample their dinner offerings."

"My only complaint is my husband and I had received an Ethan Stowell Restaurants gift card for our wedding that only had a website on the back- ethanstowellrestaurants.com
We were under the impression that the card was good at ANY of the restaurants listed on the website and I chose the Goldfinch Tavern based on the location and menu- NO WHERE ON THE WEBSITE DID IT MENTION THAT THE GIFT CARD COULD NOT BE USED THERE. So when we went to pay, we were told that while Ethan Stowell "consulted" on the menu at Goldfinch, they were actually a "Four Seasons Restaurant"- whatever that means- and refused to take our gift card. Since we had received this as a gift, I would have chosen another one of the restaurants on the site, had I known.
The staff (including the Manager) seemed well-versed at explaining that the gift card could not be used, but again, NOTHING at the physical location stated that the card wasn't good there. Honestly, the Four Seasons should just be asked to be reimbursed by Ethan Stowell or come up with a similar arrangement, because it felt like a bait and switch and left a sour taste in our mouths. You can't expect your guests to know what you don't put in writing at your own establishment. The food is excellent- will I be back? I don't know- I think they could have handled the situation better and I expect better service from a Four Seasons establishment."

"This was our first visit to Goldfinch but will not be our last. The food was fabulous, although the restaurant is a bit noisy. This is because of its location off the hotel lobby, so it can't be helped. Anyway, we will go again knowing it is not appropriate for a quiet intimate dinner, but also knowing that we can expect a wonderful meal at a fair price and great service to boot."
