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. Celebrating and embodying the neighborhood culinary spirit in Seattle, Four Seasons partnered with Seattle native and multiple James Beard Award nominee, Chef Ethan Stowell. His highly acclaimed restaurant group has more than a dozen neighborhood restaurants in the city.
Goldfinch Tavern will be closed until further notice, due to Washington State’s emergency proclamation to temporarily shut down restaurants and bars to further expand protections against COVID-19.

Weekend Brunch Buffet
Meet us at Goldfinch Tavern this weekend for bottomless mimosas and a brunch buffet menu filled with a seasonal assortment of light and fresh dishes both savoury and sweet.
Trust the Chef
At Goldfinch Tavern, you’ll taste a variety of seasonal dishes. The “Trust the Chef” tasting menu leaves the decisions up to our chefs. Dishes include a variety of highlights from the menu, as well as exciting, off-menu dishes featuring the latest ingredients from the Northwest’s latest bounty.
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.Ethan Stowell Executive Chef and Restaurateur of Ethan Stowell Restaurants
