A great place to find at Seattle Center.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMCollector's dream !!!We had a delightful lunch and a wonderful tour of the gorgeous exhibits !!!! Loved the collections in the center of the tables and lining the walls - Dale is a man after my own heart - I'm not the only collector.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday LunchWe love to eat at Collections Cafe so much that we chose it for a birthday lunch celebration. Our adult meals were spectacular and the children's meals are sophisticated and delicious takes on classic kid fare! I would and have highly recommended eating at Collections.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMVery pleasant, interestingVery pleasant, interesting menu, and we appreciated the quiet so we could carry on a conversation with friends without shouting and leaning across the table. For that alone we'd return.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food & menu & serviceCollections has an interesting menu. The food is good and reasonably priced. I appreciate the gluten free menu options. The service is friendly and efficient. We enjoyed being seated on the patio on a sunny afternoon. This is a great spot if you are enjoying an activity at Seattle Center.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect compliment to the museumHad a wonderful Mother's Day meal with the family (all adults) during out tour of the museum.

Great place for lunch!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our server andWe enjoyed our server and diners taking photos of the various collections in the restaurant. Great conversation starters.
We were disappointed in menu options and that their wines by the glass options were gone. It was a beautiful day but outdoor table service was limited as well. May go back for a snack some time but not for dinner before the theatre.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMVery tastyThe food is quite tasty and not too pricey. The menu changes seasonally so it's fun to go back.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMChange in menu?We have been to Collections Cafe several times so we do hold it to a high standard. It is a good location for pre-theater, ballet and opera dinners. The noise level is also low enough that we can actually carry on a conversation. However, the food was not as good this time as it has been in the past and the menu options seemed less appealing. The roast chicken was a poplular choice at our table due to an article in the paper that morning about the chicken at other restaurants. However, the chicken here was not as flavorful as it should be. The apple salad, although very good, should be offered in an appetizer size. The goat cheese gnocci was excellent as was the burger..5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMchihuly collects stuff and deliversvery nice wait staff very interesting food items good portion size and very nice wine list5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a pleasure, and hopeAlways a pleasure, and hope to go for dinner at some point.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMHow Can You Miss with this!I love Collections and have been there many times. I go every time I go to the Glass Garden, but most recently I have been there twice (and planning a third) when taking guests to Book-It Repertory Theatre just across the walkway from you in the Center House Theatre.I am on the board there as well and would love to have a dinner/theater offering together. We have arrangements with other local eateries, but you are the closest and the best! I would love to put you in touch with our staff to see what we might arrange. We are just beginning our outstanding (and acclaimed!) performance of Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn Uncensored which will be followed by The Financial Lives of the Poets by Jess Walter. We will be in touch!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful portions on theWonderful portions on the Restaurant Week lunch menu.

Unbelievable. I had the prawn appetizers and then the chopped salad which was super. My date had the daily choice steak and it was great too according to his reports. Even the bread brought to the table was super delicious.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe hostess was very helpfulThe hostess was very helpful by accommodating one in our party who has mobility issues. Our server, Dane, was helpful and gave menu recommendations which we liked very much.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMI'm always pleasantly surprisedI'm always pleasantly surprised when a tourist destination delivers bot excellent quality and value. This fulfilled both. Prices were reasonable. Our guest had the hamburger which looked like 1/2 pound, bacon thick enough to see; he pronounced it excellent. I tried his shoestring french fries and we both thought "better than McDonalds". My husband had a salad which he said was excellent, but enough for a small country. I had the small goat cheese gnocchi appetizer; fine flavor, sufficient food. The only disappointment was the panna cotta dessert; too much gelatin. We'll eat there again when visiting CGG. Plenty of children present, but it's divided up so we weren't bothered.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Hamburgers and RoastedBest Hamburgers and Roasted Chicken ever.

We absolutely loved our lunch entres ~ the flavors and presentation were exceptional. Our waitress provided good, non-intrusive service, and we enjoyed looking at the artwork on the walls and collection in our table (and we walked around to other tables to view other collections).
It's not a cheap eat, but definitely worth the price. Looking forward to our next trip to Collections cafe.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a fun place in theThis is a fun place in the Seattle Center.
