Check In – Check Out

Food + Drink

Featuring spectacular drinks and delicious food, join us to savor our new Dunbar Room menu.

As the oldest boutique hotel in one of America’s great dining cities, Hotel 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. The Dunbar’s cocktail menu and all-day dining menus are available in the Fireside Room, the piano-lounge-in-the-round adjacent our lobby. In the Summer, we open the Garden, our warm weather hub of hospitality. In fair weather, you can indulge in cocktails and live music on  Saturdays and Sunday morning Jazz Brunch.

Dunbar Room


Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner: Daily 7a–10p
Saturday/Sunday Brunch: 10a–2p
Live Jazz Music Sundays from 10:30a-1:30 p
Dunbar Room Bar: Daily 11a–close



Early last century it was a billiards hall. After World War II it became the Grill Room, a Filipino restaurant decked out in puka 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 Italian-inspired menu features the freshest Northwest seafood pulled from the Puget Sound and the Pacific, local 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.

Please note that we will not be serving Sunday Jazz Brunch on 12/17, 12/24, and 12/31.
