#1153 #S696 - Table 35, Seattle - 6/23/2010

Update: Table 35 closed in Oct. 2010

This is still a fairly cool looking place, but the changes to the decor seem to be primarily just subtractions from the ultra swanky Ama Ama. The cocktails seem to be okay, but not in the league of, say, the Feedback. I had a Port of Seattle (Warres Otima 10-year Tawny Port, Rogue Dead Guy whiskey, bitters, served up with a bourbon soaked cherry) which was nice. I am glad someone is maintaining the space as a romantic sort of venue, but the Table 35 owners (who also own Salute in Bellevue) don't have the same dedication to the ambiance as Ama Ama did.  Or course Ama Ama went under, so maybe it's more practical to have televisions with sports and a sound system playing Top 40 sorts of music, but it certainly does not help either the romance or the perception that you're in some place unique.
