This past weekend, Seattle restaurants were permitted to open up again for dine-in services — but it’s up to diners to decide when they will feel comfortable sitting down at a restaurant again. Right now, in “phase 1.5” of reopening, restaurants in King County can open indoor seating at 25 percent capacity and outdoor seating at 50 percent capacity, with other health guidelines in place. Bars, breweries, and wine taprooms also qualify, if they serve a full food menu. Several restaurants have already started the process of reopening.

Eater Seattle wants to hear from readers regarding when they will feel comfortable dining out at restaurants around the city again. Take this brief survey, which includes questions concerning timeframes on returning to restaurant dining rooms, seating arrangements, ordering and payment options, and other COVID-19 measures.
