Prelude Restaurant

Food_(c)RinaJordan.JPGPrelude Restaurant, operated by SAVOR..., is a 188-seat full-service restaurant, conveniently located on the south end of the entry level lobby.

Executive Chef Nathan Batway creates and executes Prelude’s seasonal menus focused on fresh, local ingredients, complemented by a premium selection of wines by the glass and half or full bottle. In addition to a range of appetizers, dinner entrées and desserts for evening performances, Prelude serves a fantastic brunch prior to matinee performances.

Prelude also offers the option to pre-order for the intermission. From dessert and champagne, to a full multiple course meal, Prelude provides full meal service during the intermission by having your full order prepared, on the table, and waiting for you when you arrive.

Prelude opens 2.5 hours prior to Opera performances and 2 hours prior to Ballet performances.

We encourage you to make reservations by calling 206-615-0404 or by filling out the OpenTable form above. Below you will find current menus. Please note that menus typically change with each production. 


We are working on new and exciting changes in our concessions offerings throughout McCaw Hall. You can still skip the lines and pre-order for the intermission at any one of the concession locations. We hope you will come and experience the changes yourself!
