"Food and service here excellent and I'll be adding this to my running list of casual date spots in Seattle. The smoked fish crostini was a great starter and super delicious - great size for sharing. I had the Bigoli which was very flavorful while still being a pretty simple dish. It was even better the next day, and the same goes for the pappardelle with pork! Our server was so friendly and gave us great wine suggestions."

"Went for an anniversary dinner. The food was great, but I was a little surprised on the portions for the amount I was paying. I ordered the sea scallops as an entree and ended up with 3 sea scallops, peas, and some various seasoning/sauce on it (though I did ask for no mushrooms on it). I'm not one to typically complain about portion sizes since I'm not a big eater to begin with (5'2" and 120lbs) but when paying for a $30 entree I kind of figured there would be more? I ended up ordering a pasta dish after my initial order of the entree and an appetizer to begin with and there was plenty there (probably more like 3-4 servings). I wish I had been aware that the portions are exceptionally small with their entrees-which was a bit of a disappointment since we went here after such a great experience at Staple and Fancy and assumed that with paying $30/entree there would be plenty of food there. My husband ordered the tuna and it was a bit more food but still fairly small portions-much like would be on a generous appetizer. I do anticipate at a more expensive restaurant there to be smaller portions, but I don't anticipate being hungry after already ordering a appetizer and entree and having to order a third thing on the menu to feel full. The food was all delicious and the server was particularly hospitable, presentation was beautiful but I don't think we will be returning for anything other than oyster happy hour here in the future."

"Possibly the best meal I've had in Seattle. The menu lives up to its anchovies and olives billing, and is well-complemented by vegetables at the top of the season. The peas that accompanied the salmon collar were amazing. Innovative flavors in the desserts too - I'd definitely come back."

"We went for restaurant week. My husband's main course, rigatoni, was delicious and had a rich meat sauce. Mine was the anchovy and bread crumb pasta, which we've enjoyed very much previously, but which seemed devoid of anchovies or much flavor Tuesday night. The appetizer, three quarter-sized slices of escolar, seemed similarly chintzy. I wouldn't do restaurant week here again."

"Fabulous food! We've eaten there twice. The first visit everything was impeccable. The second visit the food was still great but the service was terrible. Everyone has a bad night so we'll most likely visit again. Their pasta is phenomenal."

"The food was impeccable. It was my boyfriend and I's first date, we are both foodies so when this place was recommended I couldn't say no. Each bite had us quiet because we were savoring it! The service was amazing too. They came by at the perfect time to see how we enjoyed our meal. The music set the tone, along with the lighting so the entire vibe was as perfect as it could've gotten. We will definitely be going back there."

"the parking here is horrible. the spaces are way too small. I have a compact and could not fit. there are not enough spaces either . worst of all is there is no pay box. you have to call a number put in a pin hen they text you a code then you have to pay using a credit card over the phone. if you went into the restaurant like I did, you need to go back out to get your license plate. worst system EVER."

"Arrived early for 5:30 reservation and were seated immediately. Server was friendly, knowledgeable about the menu, recommended a delicious wine, admitted he made a mistake on the entree and immediately fixed it. Food was delicious, however, we were disappointed in the "crudo" anchovies that looked for all the world to be from a jar, cured in olive oil. We've had fresh, crudo anchovies in Italy and there were nothing like what we were served here on Saturday. For a restaurant that has this fish in the name, they can do better! The rest of the meal was delicious and the value is excellent. Definitely would return to this restaurant."

"After a GREAT meal at Ethan Stowell's Bar Cotto (which shares the facility with Anchovies and Olives) we were very excited to try the seafood focused sister restaurant. The food was pretty good. Service needs work."
