Food & Drink

As the oldest boutique hotel in one of America’s great dining cities, the Sorrento has held a gold standard for food and drink since the days when “farm-to-table” was a foregone conclusion. We feature three distinct hospitality areas, each on the ground floor, open to guests and the public and also available for private parties and events.

The Dunbar Room is our full-service dining room, a refined but casual restaurant that’s equal parts upscale European bistro, all-American steakhouse and Northwest seafood bonanza. The Dunbar’s cocktail menu (created by local craft cocktail bartender, Scott Hadley) and all dining menus, are available in the Fireside Room, the piano-lounge-in-the-round adjacent our lobby.

Early last century it was a billiards hall. After World War II it became the Grill Room, a Filipino restaurant decked out in pukka shells. From the 1980s into the mid 2010’s it was known as the Hunt Club, a dimly lit den of rich food and strong drink. For its latest incarnation, we’ve drawn from yet another era of our storied history. From 1961 to ’64, Hotel Sorrento’s dining room was known as the Dunbar Room. We’re proud to restore the name and begin a new chapter of the Sorrento story.

With the Dunbar Room, Hotel Sorrento has created a relaxed, refined environment in a bright but cozy space reminiscent of a Parisian train-station bistro or midtown Manhattan café. As the bustle of the hotel carries on outside, the Dunbar remains a sanctuary, relaxed in attitude but attentive in service.

Our dinner menu features the freshest Northwest seafood pulled from the Puget Sound and the Pacific, grass-fed beef and sustainably raised pork and poultry, and produce sourced from farms across Washington State. Our bar list emphasizes our favorite local wines, beers and spirits, alongside preferred liquors and vintages from around the world. Ours is a modern twist on classic cocktailing, representing a variety of strengths and styles. The Dunbar Room is both destination restaurant and neighborhood clubhouse, a special place for any occasion.

a gathering place

The depth of character found in Hotel Sorrento’s Fireside Room can’t be manufactured; it’s gotta be earned. Swathed in ochre mahogany paneling, furnished in eclectic midcentury-modern, outfitted with a baby grand piano and encircling a wide, octagonal central column, the Fireside Room is a throwback to more elegant times. During the day, it serves as a luxe office space, with power outlets, WiFi, and coffee and tea service for small meetings.

Evenings bring craft beers and ciders at our bespoke Fireside Bar, the occasional jazz-piano performance and, with cooler temperatures (what we in the Pacific Northwest call “nighttime”), a roaring fire in the fireplace.


Happy Hour

The Garden


Daily, 11:00a – 10p, weather permitting



As temperatures rise and daylight lingers, Seattlelites head out in search of outdoor eating, drinking, and lounging. Inspired by Hotel Sorrento’s original square, Italianate garden, The Garden is our warm weather hub of hospitality.

Reopening in early May 2016, The Garden will be available for lunch, early evening cocktails, and relaxed dinners through the summer.
