L’Oursin (‘sea urchin’ en Français)

L’Oursin is a French restaurant, bar and wine shop in Seattle’s Capitol Hill/Central District. We specialize in updated French bistro cuisine, natural wine, cocktails and French spirits, with one of the largest collections of Armagnac, Calvados and Cognac in Seattle.

We’re open daily from 5-10pm. Our kitchen service ends at 9:30pm. Our cross streets are Jefferson St. between 13th and 14th avenues, across from the Seattle University Championship Field. Street parking is generally available around the restaurant.
