a wood-fueled bistro

Inspired by the American Craftsman movement with its focus on simplicity, originality and natural materials and the new “bistronomy” of Paris, Samara is a comfortable and intimate gathering space. We offer a menu celebrating local vegetables, sustainable seafood and heritage breed animals prepared in our wood-fueled brick oven and hearth, as well as a composed drink selection of biodynamic wines and seasonal batched cocktails. Located in the Sunset Hill neighborhood of Ballard.


Please join us from 1 -7pm for Thanksgiving Dinner!

We will be offering a 4 course prix fixe dinner consisting of a shared snack platter, choice of vegetable, entree and dessert. Supplements and wine pairings will also be available.
