Our upscale, waterfront tavern pays homage to the city’s pioneer days, providing a place for both travellers and locals to mingle over craft beer and cocktails, fresh-caught seafood and the simple-yet-delicious flavours of the Pacific Northwest. Named for the state bird of Washington, the American Goldfinch, the restaurant is a collaboration between Four Seasons Hotel Seattle and Ethan Stowell Restaurants.

Because our menu has an emphasis on fresh ingredients, sometimes you’ll see something different on the website from what you actually have in the restaurant. We can promise you that whatever you do have, it will be delicious.Joe Ritchie Chef, Goldfinch Tavern
Chef Joe Ritchie
Raised in Washington State’s Snoqualmie Valley, Chef Ritchie’s first job was harvesting local blueberries for 10 cents a pound. A childhood surrounded by dairies, orchards and rivers full of trout led him to enroll in and graduate from the Scottsdale Culinary Institute in 2001. Various jobs in well-known kitchens followed, including time with Jerry Traunfeld at both The Herbfarm and Poppy, Grouse Mountain Grill in Colorado and a stint at two Michelin-starred Cyrus in California. In 2013, Ritchie joined the Ethan Stowell Restaurant team to help open Mkt, before joining us as chef of Goldfinch Tavern.
“I love the instant gratification you get from cooking; the intense challenge it provides, and how it has let me develop a deep appreciation for all sorts of ingredients.”
