Seattle Weekly's Description

It would require many dollar signs to convey how expensive a meal at what many consider Seattle's best restaurant can be when you go all out, but you won't regret a single dollar of your splurge. When chef Thierry Rautureau whips up five or eight courses featuring seafood, caviar, foie gras, minted tea sorbet, and squab with cauliflower mushrooms, then tops it off with "a symphony of desserts," you will want to give him a standing ovation-that is, if you can still stand. Diners seem to get daunted by the hushed-voice (flawless) service and the doorstop wine list, but Rautureau swears you can pop in for a couple of dishes and a glass of wine. Consider taking him up on his dare.

    Theirry Rautureau had put together one of the most inviting pre fixe french restaurants in town. The menu is suburb, seasonal, and always perfectly executed. I recommend going with the sommelier's wine pairing if you are not much of a wine aficionado as their bible-sized cellar can be a bit overwhelming. And if you're gawking at the price - I assure you, it is worth every succulent penny!

    From chef Thierry Rautureau, it’s simply the finest French cuisine in Seattle, served in a pretty Madison Valley house with creamy walls, polite pastel paintings, and reverent service.

    Rover’s is no drop-in neighborhood joint. But when Rautureau saunters over in that silly hat, his welcome genuine and his smile down-to-earth, it can feel like one.

    Try the Amuse Bouche (via @Foodspotting)

    Definitely get the Vegetarian option. This was simply a fantastic 5-course affair. They were gracious enough to make me a lovely mocktail too.
