I had a pretty nice experience at Madame K's! The service was great, the pesto pizza was tasty, and, even though it may have been a glorified cookie, the Big O dessert was delicious! I recommend sitting on the back patio - the garlic smell isn't as intense and you have a great view of Shilshole Ave (hey, who doesn't love to look at industrial Ballard?). It's definitely a great place to go with the gal pals. Oh, and get their sangria - it's fantastic!
