I picked this up at the library and I'm not really impressed. This might have been a nice guide to have when we first visited Seattle for a long weekend, years ago. But, having lived here for over 2 years now, I think most of the places she recommends are pretty well known go-to places. I was hoping for something a little more in depth or to find some surprises. Also, I'm REALLY surprised at how sparse the coffee mentions are. I had to double check the publish date - there's some places she mentions that are NOT that great or have gotten to be awful. (For example, Lunchbox Laboratory has gone WAY down hill and is not worth a mention.)

I really waffled on the rating... I wanted to give it a "2" star, on the "jaded resident and I know what's good and what isn't" scale, but as a visitor, I'd have given this a 4 or 5. So I split the difference and gave it a 3. Like I said, this would have been GREAT to have when I knew nothing about Seattle and all the neighborhoods - although, again... had I followed this book's advice and gone to Lunchbox Labs in the last year, I'd have been pretty mad. (Seriously. Was once good, but DOWNHILL. AWFUL. AVOID.)

I bought this book as a birthday present for my boyfriend and it's just great! I'm probably more excited by the book than he is but it suggests some really great restaurants and has an easy-to-follow format. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone looking to delve a little deeper into the Seattle dining scene.

I think that this is probably a very good and quite useful book. However, the publishers (or someone) made the terrible mistake of thinking that simply reading the text over into a digital format would provide a satisfactory Kindle version -- and it most certainly does not!! Throughout the Kindle version, there are references to page numbers and yet, in that version, there are no pages (just locations that are not the same). The index (which looks great) gives direction to pages -- which, again, don't exist. So, the only way to find something is to painfully flip pages until you find it. Certainly that isn't what a digital format should provide. In addition, the author refers to the web site for many restaurants and they aren't provided -- of course they should be and they should be active so one could get to the site merely by clicking on the reference. There is no excuse for producing an ebook that is almost useless.

I seriously carry this book with me every where I go. It's just the right size to fit in my purse so when I'm on the go in Seattle and I'm not sure where to go and don't trust the restaurant on the corner or my friends consistent poor taste in food then I whip out the Food Lovers' Guide! The way Keren Brown has organized it is flawless and so easy to use. It's sectioned into North, Central, Downtown, West Seattle and South so wherever you are you can easily find a great place to eat in and feel confident in where you're sitting down at. There's even an Eastside section, too! She has places in Redmond, Bellevue, Kirkland etc that all sound amazing that I haven't even heard of and I've been raised in Bellevue. So excited to visit every single place in this book!

This compact book captures the Seattle food scene focusing on 5 major regions of the city of Seattle. Author Keren Brown keeps her pulse on the bountiful culinary scene by including the full range of foodie options from long time coveted Canlis to off the beaten track Oberto Factory.

This isn't your run of the mill laundry list of eateries. North, Central, South, West Seattle, and Downtown regions are showcased starting each chapter with some neighborhood background and history. Be it Bakeries, Landmarks Eateries, Destination Dining or Specialty Markets and real favorite recipes, Food Lovers Guide to Seattle leaves no corner of Seattle unexplored.

What a marvelous gift for any Food Lover or newbie to the city. Just make sure to buy two because once you start reading, you will want your own copy.

Love this book. I constantly use it as a reference whenever guests are in town or when I'm planning on taking my daughters out for a get together. Every time I open the book I'm bound to find a restaurant I have yet to visit, and with the way it's tastefully written the reader is immediately drawn to get out to Seattle and try new places. I've visited numerous places Keren has recommended in the Food Lovers' Guide to Seattle and I have been more than satisfied. I decided to purchase a bunch of books just to have and give to friends and family as a token of my appreciation and love for them, but also as encouragement for them to get out of the house and savor what Seattle's food scene has to offer!
