Seattle and Whidbey dining

We've just returned and have some tips. We only had two nights in Seattle and one was Monday. We did eat at Tango again for tapas. We thought it was ok this time but think we're going to try Harvest Vines next. The highlight dining expereince was Matt's at the Market for our lunch on Tuesday. We loved this place! Good food, a great atmosphere and a place we're definitely going to hit again perhaps for dinner.
We did stay at the Inn at Langley and opted for the CHef's dinner. Unbeknownst to us, the chefs had changed two weeks before our arrival. While we wanted to really like the meal(we found the chef earnest -Matt Castello of Dahlia Lounge and the Alexis and the price per person somewhat daunting)..I'd suggest skipping this experience for awhile. The food again was somewhat tasteless and while interesting in description just seemed to lack body! Maybe he just needs to get to know the island and its ingredients or have mure certain footing in that kind of cooking experience. The whole thing felt a bit like the Emperor's New CLothes to us..lots of hype and very little else.
