Came here during happy hour to try their mini pizza's. It's probably the best time to come since their regular price for a whole pizza is kind of pricy. With happy hour, you get to try different varieties if you are sharing. Happy hour pizza is $7 and I have to say it's pretty good. HH beer range from $4-6. I wanted to try their coconut cream pie since Seattle is known for good coconut cream pies, but it was way too expensive at $12 a slice. I was turned off by their pricing, but their pizza pies were delicious. It's worth it to come during HH only. And to add, they have an automatic 20% service charge with their bill.

Neat place to check out. Pizza was okay. They have made pizza into an art the way they do it from scratch, but just wasn’t a huge fan of some of the combinations. Glad we went. Just wasn’t as impressed as we thought we’d be.

Seriously the best pizza ever known to earth. I'm from LA and I catch myself salivating just thinking about their pizzas. If only this was located in LA but I ordered their mushroom truffle and what a winner selection that was. Their dough is fluffy. Small place with communal tables but a must try when you're in Seattle.

Swallow's Rest is located in the heart of local chef Tom Douglas's restaurant empire. All are great -- but his take on pizza is amazing. Be sure to try the roast veggie starters.

Excellent gourmet brick oven pizza in Seattle. Make sure you attend happy hour 3 to 5pm for the best discounts on pies; $16 to $18 personal pies go to $6. All pies are terrific especially the wild mushroom and truffle oil or the sausage and fennel.

Delicious flat bread pizzas in a lively atmosphere. Their happy hour pizzas are $6 for a smaller portion. Try to come between 3-5, otherwise pizzas range from $15-$19. I love the soft egg and prosciutto pizza.

We tried a couple of different "pies" here...service was great, but the food fell a bit flat for us. There wasn't anything mouth-watering about the flavors nor original. The ambience is great, feels very urban and hip, noise level is party-like, but the food combined with average prices aren't enough for us to want to return sadly....love the concept and love being able to watch our pies bake in the open fire ovens - kind of a cool touristy-place to take out-of-towner visitors, but not a home-run for flavor profiles. It's also pretty cramped inside so the seating can be a bit claustrophobic for some and it's rather small in general, so if you come during peak hours, be prepared for a long wait. Also, you are forced to sit at large tables with strangers unless you're lucky enough to get a table or maybe they take reservations for the tables? Not sure? So it was a bit on the awkward side if you're looking to have some privacy during your meal. But if you're in the mood to mingle, this is probably a great place. I also noticed quite a few families with younger children inside, so it was nice to a see a good mix of all types of people - felt earthy and welcoming.

Serious Pie is the epitome of what pizza should be. There is always a wait for a seat, but it goes fast. The pizza is perfection!

You can't go wrong with any of the delicious pies here but a personal favorite is the penncove clam pizza.

Um, YUM! Got off a flight that landed about an hour later than expected at Sea-Tac, checked in at the hotel, then went wandering off for dinner. This place was perfect. We got the Yukon Gold pie - amazingly simple, yet delicious - perfectly baked dough with rosemary, cheese, and thin, crispy slices of potato. My friend had the shrub of the day to drink, I had the homemade grape soda. Under normal circs, we probably would've ordered two pies, but since our stomachs were still adjusting from East Coast to West Coast time, one was perfect. Super nice staff too.

Seattle is not known for great pizza, but this place is pretty much the best you'll get in the city. The toppings change seasonally and the crust is some of the best I've ever had. The only reason I don't give it four stars is that it's pretty small and sometimes hard to get a seat since they don't take reservations.

Gravy, biscuit, fried chicken. Fantastic morning breakfast! Get there early enough so that there is enough street parking and claim a seat by the window. The restaurant is pretty big so seating shouldn't be a problem.

Would recommend serious pie to anyone! Loved it so much! Salad, pizza and dessert was delicious. Definitely going back later.

Had the chanterelle and truffle cheese pizza. It lacked flavor and the crust was black so I could taste burnt crust with just about every bite. Pizzas are overpriced for their size. So what is the big deal about this place? Might give them another shot and try something else another time I visit Seattle. But for now, it was very mediocre.

Apparently, I haven't drunk the koolaid. Serious Pie, is seriously average. Yes, they have some unusual toppings/combos, but who doesn't in an age of artisan za? So I am not sure what all the fuss is about, like Tom Douglas' other ventures, the food doesn't manage to quite live up to the hype or the price tag. Having grown up in Chicago eating the best deep dish at Giordano's and getting slices of thin crust at John's in Greenwich Village, NYC, my standards are high.

The pizza is well made, but I think they try a little too hard to make them fancy and high class. I had an egg and arugula pizza with olive dressing and it just wasn't very interesting.
