"Superb service and dependable high-quality food are the reasons to visit Il Fornaio, the casual atmosphere and reasonable prices are the reasons to return again and again. Central in the Denny Triangle and easily accessible via bus, light rail, and on foot."

"Il Fornaio - It was not too busy, but they seemed short staffed. The waiter gave us oil and balsamic vinegar but forgot to give us bread. He also made it seem like the kitchen was really backed up and it would be a 15 - 20 minute wait for a salad. I still ordered it and it came out in a timely manner. However, it was extremely overdressed. Overall, the food was okay. nothing WOW."

"I had a party of 6 dine there on a Thursday night and we got what was possibly the worst service we have ever had in Seattle. I ended up hunting down the waiter to 1) get our deserts after what was a 45 minute rest and 2) having to go ask the manager if it would be possible to get a check before people started dozing on the table. Bottom line, a truly horrible experience."

"The restaurant clearly read the details in the reservation request as we received special treatment for my daughter's birthday. Our server was gracious and patient, the available menu items all delicious. (I went with Toscano).
The only disruption came from noisy diners at a different table who also insisted on lots of flash photography. Otherwise, from seating and drinks to dessert and espresso, this was a lovely experience. Thank you!"

"The food was excellent as usual, but the waiter was somewhat distracted by two large parties. Not his fault, probably too much for one guy to cover. At any rate we will always go back since the food is truly some of the best Italian we have found in the NW."

"The food was wonderful. Tasty bolognese (sp?) sauce. The only drawback was the service was extraordinarily slow. It took over 15 minutes to even get our drink order in and one dining partner ordered a drink during the meal which she ended up canceling because dessert arrived. Then the computer system went down and we had to wait even longer. Bit of a bummer as I've eaten there before and had superb service."

"This was my second visit to Il Fornaio this week. The food was very good both times, and the prices were decent, especially for a downtown restaurant. But this visit the service was terrible.Sitings of the waiter were few and far between. When we were considering dessert I asked "Question: Chocolate cake or zabione?" He looked at me annoyed, expressionless and said flatly, "That is not a question. That is a statement." He didn't check back on us, and when it was time to pay took the cash from two of us and and one credit card from another and didn't come back. At least 15 minutes passed. When he finally returned he told us they were rebooting the system and he wouldn't be able to charge for quite a while and hoped we could wait. When pushed he said there was another way he could do it if he had to, but definitely let us know it was a total pain for him and that he really didn't want to. We waited at least another 10 minutes, had to call them back over, he said it still wasn't fixed, Now it had been at least 25 minutes since we finished our meal. Again he didn't offer to do it in a different way, so one of us had to lend our friend cash so she could pay without her card and we could leave. He never apologize for the wait, never apologized for the inconvenience, and never offered to do anything to make it right."

"I've been to Il Fornaio many times for lunch and had good experiences. This time I tried to meet a friend for dinner before a movie. The restaurant wasn't all that busy but it took well over an hour before our food showed up - so we missed our movie. My friend enjoyed her meal but I ordered "prawns in garlic" and got a total of 4 complete prawns (lungs, heads, the whole shebang) which were flavorless, mushy and watery. Next to no actual meat to eat, a few beans, potatoes and some spinach on the side for $30. I was very disappointed. The ambiance was very pleasant and wait staff nice, but I won't be going back for dinner again."

"Fuimos para celebrar el cumpleaños de mi hermana; la atención es súper buena,nos sirvieron unas Bruschettas cortesía de la casa, ricas, pero el servicio es demasiado lento.
La comida rica, los postres, típicos italianos.

"This was one of the poorest dinner experiences that we have had anywhere. Firstly, the waiter had very little interest in whether we wanted any toppings such as cheese or pepper for our meal. Furthermore, the meal was average at best in delivering a reasonable flavor with a decent presentation. Lastly, not once did the waiter ask how our meal was or if we were satisfied."

"Our service was slow, our food took a VERY long time to come out, and when it did, it was luke-warm/cold. Servers didn't ask if we wanted a second glass of wine, which we would have had, considering we sat there for over 3 hours. on the plus side, we got to catch up with our friends and weren't rushed to get out of there."

"My husband and I ate here on an overnight trip from Portland. When we saw it was here we jumped at the chance to go since they are no longer in Portland. It was good and classic. The restaurant is huge which may be good for crowds but we realized we missed the ambiance of a smaller place"
