Seattle Restaurant Week — the giant among restaurant promos — is back, with 165-plus spots making $30 three-course dinners (and lots making $15 two-course lunches) from October 18 to 22 and October 25 to 29.* With more than 165 restaurants participating, it’s tough to choose. We’re here to help.

We’ve put together a few lists to make the dining deal decision easier. And don’t forget to make reservations, and tip well (your servers are dealing with a lot of cheapskates).

Ordering off restaurant week’s special menu might make a first date feel less special, but if you and your longtime squeeze want a date-night spot, here are 10 of the best tables for two.
