I loved this place! The food was amazing and very unique. I will be back again soon
We had a reservation, were waiting for 20 minutes, nobody came neither to greet us, sit us to the a table or ask for more patience. They were clearly over booked but I think you can do better than this service wise. We left without having dinner
Great family atmosphere- with a good energy for fun and conversation.
Perfect Pre-prom dinner for my son and his friends. The chef brought out his special recommendations and treated themgraciously. A great dining experience for the youngsters.
Very personable host and waiters were right there with next fish at beginning, giving more time between meals toward the end and dessert. So move to simply talk, drink wine and not worry about what comes you had to make. Bravo to the chef and owner..
If it were possible to give Mike's food 6 stars, I would do it. It's been 7+ years since our last visit yet Mike remembered us, remembered our food likes/dislikes, and chatted with us about all the changes. Fantastic food mostly customized to your tastes. There is no menu; you just talk with Mike and magic happens. It's well worth fighting to find parking (parking would be the only downside) and then driving again to get to theatre.
Great food and fun time
The place looked pretty run down, inside was a bit cleaner. There were fruit flies everywhere and we were not asked what type of Wine we wanted one was opened and placed in front of us. When we looked it up on google it showed the cost to be $7.50-$20.00 when the bill came the bottle of wine was almost $40.00. If you were to go to this place be ready for sticker shock when the bill comes, for 2 people it was over $110.00 not including a tip.
Amazing food and wine. Chef chooses food and wine for you. Delicious.
Love the surprise element of this place. You get about 7 courses and you aren’t sure what is coming next. Every course was excellent.
This was our second time in the last two months to celebrate a birthday. First time was great. This time was a disaster. Food was cold. The same sauce was on the first three dishes. The last dishes were served from a pan dripping with sauce. Owner couldn’t remember what we had. The presentation was absolutely disgusting! This was a $175.00 meal for four people and truly owner should be ashamed! It was busy , meal took 2 1/2 hours. This would of never been served on King 5 like we were served! We will NEVER go back and first Seattle resteraunt with this bad of experience!!!
Enjoyed our meal !! It was creative, delicious and fun !!
Outstanding dinner and personal experience. Having to not order off a menu was the best!
The most amazing restaurant. In the 10 years I've been dining there I have never been disappointed.
Unusual place. You meet with the chef and discuss what you eat and don't eat and then they bring you food--you don't choose. Everything was well prepared and interesting. The food was very good and although we didn't choose our own meal, everything was great.
We love this place. No menu, no fuss - just a great person who asks you if there is anything you do not eat and if you would like a glass of wine. Then the wine and food start flowing. All the while a lovely singer is doing requests around the room. Love it!
Fun place. Food so so. Requested no shellfish and our “chicken “ course tasted good but also distinctly like shrimp to me and my guest.... mentioned this to server who said that was not possible. He offered to bring something else which I declined.
Charmed by the owner and chef every time I visit! The food and atmosphere is exceptional. We make special trips into Seattle just to eat at Pasta Freska. Would recommend to EVERYONE.
The chef will greet you at your table to discover your preferences, but then your meal will be a mystery. You'll eat whatever the chef makes! It's all delicious and there is so much food.
What a terrible experience. My husband and I arrived at 6:45 for dinner and left at 9pm - not by choice, but because the food, which was spread out over 6 tapas/servings, took over 2 hours to be served. When asked when the next food will arrive, the staff seemed to have no idea and only offered vague time estimates that turned out to be inaccurate. The tapas, themselves, were very mediocre and small. Although tasty, they were not worth the time or the money spent ($28 per person). I was still hungry leaving the restaurant.
The worst part about our meal was the service. I watched as the owners and the servers went around to all the other tables refilling waters, getting bread for other patrons, and clearing plates. Maybe it was because of where we were sitting, but my husband and I did not get any attention unless the food was FINALLY being served. Even then, I had to ask for my water to be refilled or plates to be cleared. We tried asking the owner what we were eating, and he would brush us off and only say one-worded answers. I do not understand why the service was so bad, given that the owner and the servers were just standing around waiting for the food to be cooked (which, again, why did it take so long?).
If you choose to come, make sure you have already eaten otherwise you will be very grumpy.
Awesome. More words required per the app
We love this place! No menu, no problem. The foods always good and the wines well paired.
Enjoyed coming here. It's a surprise meal, so you don't actually order: food just shows up! While not the best Italian ever, it was quality dining with a cozy, intimate atmosphere. A unique experience and worth a look.
Absolutely fantastic! Didn’t realize there really was no menu. But everything that was brought to our table was extraordinary. Miranda has the voice of an angel and a superstar!
Pasta Fresca is a one of a kind place. You don't order off menu, you are served what the kitchen is making that night. We have always been delighted with the food and the atmosphere is as unique as the food. The chef is a gregarious host who treats everyone as an old friend. The singer who graces your table with italian opera to "Over the Rainbow" is delightful.
So if you like a little adventure in your dining experience, try Pasta Freska!
We had a reservation for 6:45 and showed up a few minutes early. The place was packed. Over the next 15 minutes, several other parties showed up, also with reservations, also with no place to sit. We finally left at 7:00 to go find somewhere else to eat. The owner offered wine to those waiting but it was clear that something went wrong with allowing so many reservations during a time when they clearly had no tables. I've eaten here before and so my food/service ratings are based on that experience. It is good (and I have a groupon to burn) so I will be back.
A unique way to have dinner. We did not order, the waiter simply asked us what we did not like and slowly began to bring food out for us to eat. It was a good amount off food and it was delicious.
We never got to try the food. Showed up at 7 pm for a 7:30 reservation. There were lots of people waiting and no hostess or check-in process. Chef would approach and seemed to randomly pick people to seat with no regard to reservations or order of arrival. After being ignored for 45 mins and passed over 4 times for people who arrived after us, we gave up and walked out.
Outstanding food and service. Great for a relaxing dinner but not a place if you are in a hurry as the ability to eat, talk and take your time eating is part of the European Experience you get eating here
Very friendly and personal service. The "surprise dinner" was really a surprise to us and we enjoyed it. All of the food was delicious and I thought it was a good value for the price.
Best place ever
If you get 2 bottles of wine they judge you...but other than that this place is fantastic and I’m definitely going back
This meal was not only great food...it was great fun!
If you are OK with surprises, this might be the place for you. Pasta Fresca serves a no menu dinner where the chef decides what you will eat (with consideration for allergies or strong dislikes). Food was good, but not outstanding, service was excellent, and a 5 course meal was only $30 pp.
Warm atmosphere and a true NW jem of a Resturaunt. Would recommend to anyone that loves authentic Italian. Trust the owner, he does a great job serving dishes that are specific to your liking.
Food was good and staff was nice however we shared a few foods we dislike when we arrived yet they served them to us anyway. Also while they had an abundance of wine, they would not allow me to choose what I wanted.
Very unique and fun experience. No menu just tell them what you don't eat and everything is a surprise. It's not fancy, more neighborhood quaint. Would definitely go back.
Check your bill before you pay it. The owners son decided to add $50,00 to my bill and not tell me he did?? Until
I questioned him and he said he would take it off the bill? Why would he not confront me before giving me the bill
I will never return here do to this..
