After more than three years of running away, virtual vows, minimonies and other socially distanced ways to get married during the pandemic, Seattle’s wedding season is back in full bloom. While exceptional cuisine is part of the nuptial plan, some of the best restaurants in town also make for an excellent wedding venue.

The luxurious downtown Hotel 1000 has a wedding menu that features options like grilled lamb chops, beef tenderloin, and roasted halibut; Pillar ballard Ray’s Boathouse excels in salmon, fresh oysters and mussels, as well as his leg of lamb rolled with herbs; and the award-winning Canlis offers three-course dinners with highlights like wagyu and decadent chocolate fudge.

Here are eight notable establishments (including two hotels with excellent restaurants) that also host weddings. Do you know a place that should be on our radar? Send us a tip by emailing [email protected] As usual, this list is unranked; it is organized geographically from west to east.
