In this town, we often say: The more, the merrier. In recent years, Seattle's culinary scene has become increasingly renowned and even more memorable, putting the city up there on the dining circuit with destinations like New York and San Francisco. Not only is the food here exquisite, the service memorable and the drink local and tasty, but the ambience also leaves an impression at the majority of the town's favorite eating establishments.
Once inside spaces funky and formal, intimate and inventive, diners enjoy the flavors of the Northwest that permeate their dishes and their surroundings. And thankfully for those who like to convene with family and friends (I mean, who doesn't enjoy breaking bread with loved ones in a festive atmosphere, right?), countless Seattle venues offer roomy tables at which groups of folks can collectively enjoy the food and the company.
The rise in popularly of "family-style" meal servings also complement the trend of group dining. Whether it's heaping bowls of crispy chips, juicy oysters, fresh pasta or sweet beignets you're after, the following restaurants we've gathered follow the philosophy that dining is most enjoyable when shared with those whom you love. So gather your people, and get ready to chow down.
