The happy hour here is a great deal. There's lots of choices and all are good. A lively atmosphere and charming market location make this a wonderful venue for an evening with friends.

Recently dined at Il Bistro for a business dinner. The location is excellent within Pike Place marekt. Very nice staff, excellent service, warm decor, and the food was excellent. I had the rigatoni bolognese which was delicious. Il Bistro provided a delightful experience!
