Aalto Lounge Restaurant Review

: This hip lounge features the Scandinavian-style design for which world-renowned architect Alvar Aalto was famous. It’s primarily a bar with a French dominated wine list, with wines available by the glass, beer and creative cocktails such as Serrano-infused vodka with pineapple and lemon juice and "adult jello shots." The menu is simple --- mac ‘n’ cheese, roasted vegetable pasta, baked pretzels, artichoke dip --- but well executed and inexpensive. You can't beat the value of a grilled cheese and tomato soup combo for $2. Late at night, the place gets busier and louder with DJs providing music from 9 p.m. until closing. On dry Northwest days, the back garden is an enjoyable place to dine and drink al fresco. Genial staff is always relaxed and glad to see you.
