About the restaurant
We are a 21+ restaurant and bar. Founded in 2018 by Joel and Matthew and purchased in late 2022 by Becky and Jon, the vision remains the same: Old English pub vibes, high quality food.

We loved The Shambles from the minute we walked in and now we continue the heritage of what was created before us. On the food side: high quality steaks, cut in house. Cooks who have the freedom to create seasonal dishes ranging from foraged mushrooms to house made sausages. To go with your meal, we offer skillfully made, non-fussy cocktails, carefully selected wines, a plethora of beers, sours, and ciders on tap and a a robust non alcoholic selection. We top it all off with warm and knowledgeable service. At the Shambles, you can join us for a lovely date night, get together with friends OR choose to sit at the bar and get an ear full of cheesy jokes and unfiltered chatter We are serious about our service from top to bottom and we can’t wait to serve you!

About the restaurant
Small and romantic we specialize in celebrations with family and friends, or just a quiet dinner with good conversation. We are family owned and operated and have been serving our community since 2001.

Drive in to Opera Alley and be transported. We strive to bring approachable food and beverage, a sense of comfort and community, as well as a unique and quality dining experience. We call ourselves a "cafe" in the sense that we are not pretentious and offer a fine dining experience in an atmosphere of comfort and respite.

Parking in Opera Alley, and downtown, can be a bit of a challenge, especially on the weekends, so please be sure to give yourself plenty of time when making reservations to find a parking space, or consider a night off from driving and get an Uber or Lift!! Eat good food often, break bread with friends and family, spend time with those you love, and we will see you soon.

The pork chop was the best I have ever had! And the winter salad with the crispy gnocchi was a perfect match. Spring was creeping out and the setting was magical. Thanks for a great evening!

Von’s Woodinville features true Seattle Sourdough, bespoke spirits, scratch cocktails, and the legendary Wagering Wheel. We are located down the street from Woodinville Whiskey, and next door to Novelty Hill Winery. Von’s features the city’s largest collection of spirits, over 1000 and growing. Our kitchen specializes in sourdough pizza and pasta, prime marbled hamburgs and made-to-order salmon chowder.

We are equally excited to introduce Northwest Spirits (now open!), our family craft distillery, which will be intimately situated next door. Come sample our Bar Boss and Savor Spear collections. Rich in flavor and aroma, these are reward spirits for your Halcyon Days.

About the restaurant
Carnal focuses on the bold flavors of wood fire and caramelization balanced with acidic, raw, and seasonal elements. We are a passionate group of cooks who do not cut corners and hope that is evident when you try our food. Our signature dish is a bone-in beef rib that is sous-vide before grilling over an open wood fire and finished with rendered bone-marrow. We source many of our ingredients from local farms and fisheries.
