Embracing Love, Flavor, and the Community: Discovering Sparrow, Kirkland's Hidden Gem 

Sparrow, an American Contemporary restaurant nestled in the heart of the Juanita neighborhood in Kirkland, came to life on July 5th, 2022. Beyond its delectable cuisine, Sparrow seeks to be more than just a restaurant; it aims to be a symbol of love and connection, drawing inspiration from ancient Greek mythology where sparrows were revered as the sacred birds of Aphrodite, the goddess of love.

The restaurant takes its name from the sparrow, a creature symbolizing true love and spiritual connection. Just like the Pacific Northwest teems with these beautiful birds, Sparrow infuses its food and service with the same love, creating a unique and enchanting dining experience.

Pacific Northwest Ambiance: As you step into Sparrow, you're greeted by the charm of the Pacific Northwest. Adorned with deer moss and weathered wood walls, the ambiance is both rustic and inviting. The bar, with its quartzite top resembling avocado skin, sets the tone for a romantic atmosphere complemented by dimmed lights, beautiful booths, and tables.

Sparrow caters to various party sizes with flexible tables in the dining section, while tall booths provide cozy spaces for small groups and families. The private room, accommodating up to 22 guests, is perfect for special events. The large outdoor patio, shaded by evergreen trees, invites guests to savor unbeatable summer evenings, complete with a dog-friendly atmosphere.

Shaded by gorgeous evergreen trees, Sparrow's sunroom becomes the perfect retreat during the beautiful PNW summer days. Guests can create lasting memories with loved ones, indulging in flavorful delights while basking in the warm sunlight filtering through the greenery.

Sparrow takes pride in its specialty cocktails crafted with freshly squeezed made-daily fruits and hand-dehydrated garnishes.
