Tips from the Net @ Athenian

Very busy place, we came around 130 on Saturday, and luckily only had to wait 10 mins for a table for two. Crab cakes were awesome, salmon was flavorful, server was eccentric. Great view of the Sound and cascade mountains that are still snowcapped. It's very relaxing to watch the sailboats and ferries from your table. Must try this place. GooglePlace - May 2017

Arrived just past noon on a Sunday when the Pike Place Market was packed due to the awesome weather of the weekend after several days of non-stop rain. Being alone I expected to get a seat on the bar but instead got a great booth by the window overlooking the bay(!) The service was awesome and I was glad they offer breakfast all day long since I really wanted to try their 'Crab and Shrimp Cake Benedict' which turned out to be really yummy, and what I can appreciate: low on salt, so less sodium for my diet (why is it that so many other restaurants miss this?) Coffee was good too, something a Colombian Café fan can love too! All in all, amazing experience and very nice service. Highly recommended. GooglePlace - May 2017

Do not go here if you don't like noise and the Pike Place atmosphere. Busy, bustling place and full of conversions, the place is always packed! We had a party of 8 on a Saturday at noon - no way we were going to NOT have a wait, so we sat at the bar, simpler than waiting for them to have to throw together an 8 top! Fast, efficient service. Food was absolutely what I expected, delicious. Our entire party got completely different things - from oyster shooters to Belgian tripel, from fish tacos to soup. Everyone left full, checks all had tip included and everything was split up correctly. Will definitely be back next trip! GooglePlace - April 2017

We were recommended this restaurant by a local bartender because we were looking for really good oysters. Man, this restaurant did not disappoint! Their happy hour at the bar is awesome, and full of locals. It doesn't feel touristy at all, which was a nice change from the day. Get an oyster shooter with the siracha chili vodka. 👍🏼 GooglePlace - April 2017

Sometimes tourist restaurants are excellent places for a fine meal. The Athenian is at its best before the Pike Street Market becomes crowded, a perfect place for a late breakfast or early lunch. Such was my experience over a bowl of delicious seafood chowder, while sitting at a window table watching ferries head out for their appointed islands as the Ferris-wheel began to turn ever so slowly with its first customers of the day.
