Chef’s Table at Restaurant Bea

Restaurant BeaWe are big fans of Restaurant Bea and have written about the Madrona restaurant many times, but we are not the only one that enjoys the Seattle restaurant.  Seattle Weekly, Seattle Times, typical restaurant websites such as Yelp, and even other local blogs have all given Madrona’s Restaurant Bea  a thumbs up.  All of the sources agree that you should try Restaurant Bea, but we would take it one step further and say: you should not only dine at Restaurant Bea but also reserve the Chef’s Table.

The Chef’s Table is literally in the kitchen at Restaurant Bea.  The round table seats 2 to 4 people and allows you to experience the inner-workings of the restaurant while enjoying a 5-course meal that is selected for you by the chef.  Watch the chef prepare your meal while the bartender, just a few steps away, suggests a wine that would best compliment the next course.  A fun and different experience at a Madrona restaurant that you are not able to enjoy at other Seattle restaurants.

Take our advice, call well in advance and reserve the “Chef’s Table” at Restaurant Bea.

Seattle Met Reviews Restaurant Bea’s New Chef

As of two weeks ago, when Restaurant Bea‘s favored chef Tom Black of the Barking Frog, and 35th Street Bistro in Fremont was replaced with a lesser known chef, there has been some discrepancies in the quality of food, according to a review by the Seattle Metropolitan. Have you noticed any differences in the restaurant’s service?

The review also stated that the food critic had come a little early in the chef’s transition, and still had high hopes for the restaurant overall, which has been a Madrona favorite for locals and visitors alike. If you’re in the neighborhood, you be the one to judge for yourself.
