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 for New Year’s Eve! We will be offering our seasonal menu as well as a few celebratory supplements. Cheers!


We will be closed on Xmas Eve, Xmas Day and New Years Day.
