Seattle Times' Providence Cicero reviews W Hotel's new restaurant, TRACE. She praises chef Steven Ariel's food but pans the service at the hotel restaurant. From "listless" service to "oblivious" staff, Cicero likens TRACE's delay in bringing the check to "Denny's on a Sunday morning." Cicero ultimately awards the W restaurant two stars, saying that the food and cocktails ably distract diners from service lapses, especially the "stunning" lamb chops and "imaginative" Sicilian margarita.
