  • 'El Encanto' Pop-Up at COMO

    Jul 11, 2022 only
    COMO's Executive Chef, Gabriel Chavez, is getting back to his roots. Join us for our third El Encanto pop-up, the latest addition to our restaurant family (stay tuned!). Chef Chavez will be crafting a menu based in traditional Durango, Mexico recipes, passed down throughout his family. There will be some familiar dishes from Chavez on Capitol Hill, closed but not forgotten, and many new items to bring Mexico to the shores of Lake Washington. By making a reservation for this dinner you will enjoy the COMO space as normal, but with a completely different menu for one night only. Make Monday better with margaritas, slow roasted meats, mezcal and recipes by Mama Chavez!

    While this Italian restaurant is in a lovely setting overlooking Lake Washington, the three different bottles of red wine we ordered were a huge disappointment to the point of being undrinkable. Had to finally settle for a bottle of Prosecco. Clams and pork belly starters were very good. They should serve focaccia to the table, rather than having to order it. Steak was marginal and the two pizzas were good. This dinner experience didn’t live up to reviews or expectations. Cranked up the music so loud it was nearly impossible to continue conversation across the table. If you go for dinner before the sun sets, take your sunglasses as there is no provision to filter a blazing setting sun screaming off the lake.

    Food was absolutely delicious! However, by the end of our meal I couldn't wait to leave. There were long delays and inconsistency in service. Overall, the staff was not very attentive. Our server was very friendly but was slow at taking even our first beverage order after being seated. We weren't informed about the evening specials, but heard it mentioned to other guests after we place our order. It took 45 minutes before our appetizer arrived, another 30-minute wait for main course, as well as delays to close out our check. The setting is beautiful, but it is extremely loud as guests are having to talk above a constant droning bass sound in the background music. It was hard to talk to one another across the small two top. Be aware two top seating is limited. We were seated at a two-top among 5 tables positioned too close together. In this seating area only one guest is able to see the water views and the other is stuck staring at a bright white wall. We absolutely loved our meal but will try other locations before making another visit.

    NOISE LEVEL INSIDE UNACCEPTABLE, impacted the entire evening, literally couldn't talk with the wonderful guest we'd invited. Great food overshadowed. Server never came back around to ask us for a drink with dinner, very distracted. Has all the makings of a really great restaurant, with some interior noise deafening work, maybe staff would do a better job? Disappointed.

    Four of us on a beautiful day. We went by boat from Seattle and had an early dinner on the deck. The atmosphere can't be beat on the water. The service was great and food wonderful. Best appetizer was probably the fried artichoke. Halibut wrapped in parchment great, and the rabbit risotto was perfect.

I would definitely add Como to your regular "hot spot" rotation for good food, great service and a spectacular view!

    The food was authentically Italian and very tasty. Overall ambiance was fairly loud and energetic as seating is quite close, but we enjoyed the rustic theme and you can’t beat the waterfront views. Service was subpar though. It took over 10 minutes to be properly greeted after being seated and the staff was quite clumsy with place settings, clearing dishes, offering things like water or fresh ground pepper, and other basics. Good experience overall and I’d recommend, but don’t expect the service to exceed expectations.

    The setting it lovely looking out at the lake -- the place is bright and nicely appointed inside. Sadly the food did not match the ambience. Chewy calamari, poorly executed halibut en papillote, carbonara, and rabbit risotto. The cannoli shell was soggy and not crunchy -- a sin to cannoli lovers. Probably best to snack on a pizza and have some drinks here while admiring the view!

    The food was good but the noise level was ridiculous. We were there for our anniversary & we couldn’t even carry on a conversation. The AC was also a problem & they were unable to move us out from under it. On the play side, our server was very nice, the food was delicious & the view is spectacular.

    Made a reservation for dinner and the staff acted like I was burdening them by wanting to sit at a table rather than have dinner in the waiting area or the bar. Then they went out of the way to put us at the worst table in the restaurant and ignored us most of the night. We literally past like 8 open tables on the way to ours, so I am not even sure why they were making such a big deal about sitting us at a table when there were so many open? They either need to manage their reservations better or not take so many walk-ins if they know they have reserved customers coming. Overall, the customer experience killed the dining experience and I will probably not go back.

    The food and vibe are good but the staff were not very accommodating or nice. I booked for a persons birthday and said that’s why we were coming. Not one person even acknowledged it. I don’t know why they have a place to say stuff if they arnt going to read it. Woman next to us dropped the F bomb over and over and said totally inventive stuff as she drank more and more it was annoying and rude.

    Como is in a great location with its water view windows on Lake Washington. Service overall was quite good and very friendly. It is pretty noisy but you can still carry on a conversation. The Italian-themed wine list is a winner. All my friend and I had were pasta dishes and a salad. While the food wasn't bad and the price was reasonable, it just wasn't something to rave about. It is possible that other pasta dishes than what we had are better - and likewise pizza and entrees. So a very nice ambience, decent wine list and average food.

    Love the look and the view. Love the idea of the place. Great staff. Want to believe Italian food is tasty, and that it can be done here. But hm. Had 10 dishes between us. Enjoyed the fried green tomatoes and the pappardelle ragu. But no one needed teeth. We all missed crunch! We’ll come back for the view and try a second time with other choices, and stay away from the back of the restaurant where the noise level gets deafening.

    This is my 3td time at Como. The food is excellent, don’t get me wrong. But the host chastised a couple in front of us for being late. Super awkward. I checked in with 4 of my 5 people. The 5th got stuck in Kirkland traffic. They wouldn’t seat the incomplete table, and then said we had 9 minutes until our reservation was forfeited. Like, we came to Como because we had good experiences there before. This was a reunion dinner and we wanted it to be low stress and casual, and instead it was tense the whole time. Our server had zero personality. The staff hovered over the table to keep us moving. Dinner and dessert felt rushed. They dropped the check off without asking if we wanted another drink, despite us being well within the 2 hour mark of our reservation. On the way out, we wanted to sit in the lounge. Just to have one more drink. The host told us no, there’s not enough room. We could have fit… Regardless, it’s really disappointing that they have this mentality and don’t want customers to feel comfortable. As good as the food is, we will not be going back. Do better and treat your customers with respect. I don’t wanna get yelled at when I go to dinner.

    Very very noisy, louder than rock bands playing in bars. Couldn't hear the person sitting two feet away across the table. My hunch is that the restaurant is shaped in the form of a narrow, curved vestibule that acts like an echo chamber. While the ceilings are high there, the arched and curved ceilings further reflect and reverberate the loud chatter from the customers. I strongly recommend an acoustic engineer to fix this problem, otherwise the good food and good service offered will come to naught.

    We always get the spinach appetizer, and the artichoke dish- they were terrific as always. Last night we ordered the Gem Lettus Salad - and there was a stone fruit & pork belly dish with frizza lettus - they were both delicious! Our Server was wonderful, her name was Hailey. And the female bartender, kicked out a delicious drink!
