The atmosphere overlooking the water is outstanding as is the service is over the top and the attention to detail. The Canlis family is on the 3rd Generation with this restaurant and it is a must do on your Seattle lust list.
With its swanky service, live jazz and glittering candlelight, El Gaucho Seattle will transport guests to a past-era where hospitality and romance reign. El Gaucho’s strong vegetarian menu (which includes Roasted Vegetable Quinoa as well as a truffle soup filled with wild mushrooms and cream), meat takes a backseat to vegetables.
The 1st Ave. original, with its limited hours and drink selection, has been providing fuel for nine-to-fivers in the form of delicious slow-roasted and smoked meats for more than 30 years. And now that Peco’s has opened a West Seattle location, barbecue is available morning, noon, and night from this fork-and-knife-style favorite.
