Held twice annually in April and October, Seattle Restaurant Week is Greater Seattle’s largest discount dining celebration across King County.
About Seattle Restaurant Week
It all started when local area restaurants united to thank diners for their support of the restaurant community over the years. Since its inception, Seattle Restaurant Week has provided diners with the opportunity to dine at some of the best restaurants in the area for a great deal. It continues to be a celebration of food and remains to be the broadest reaching, most price-conscious restaurant promotion in the area and one of the lowest priced restaurant promotions in the country.
Seattle Restaurant Week is a great opportunity to visit the award-winning restaurants you’ve always wanted to try and to rediscover old favorites. It’s a celebration of the cuisine that makes our region a culinary hot spot.
Operated by the Seattle Restaurant Cooperative, a non-profit association of local restaurateurs united to represent local area restaurants, Seattle Restaurant Week is also presented with The Seattle Times. The Times lends its expertise of the local consumer landscape and years of managing restaurant promotions.

Diners can visit their favorite participating restaurants throughout restaurant week and enjoy special prix fixe menus. Participating restaurants offer a three-course dinner featuring an appetizer, entrée and dessert with at least three options under each course. Some participants also offer a three-course lunch. No passes, tickets or coupons are required. Prices do not include drinks, tax or gratuity. The promotion runs Sunday through Thursday; excluding Friday, Saturday and Sunday brunch.
Reservations are not required, but are strongly encouraged. Walk-ins are appreciated; however, there is no guarantee that walk-in guests will be accommodated. To make a lunch or dinner reservation, contact the restaurants directly. More than 165 local restaurants are serving up three-course dinners for just $35, and many also offer two course lunches for $20.
