  • "My friend and I had dinner here recently and had a great experience: we loved the beef tartare with taro crisps, lamb and peas (but not the semolina dumplings which were bland and unworthy) and fresh beignets! Our waitress was spot on and we would definitely return. :)"

  • "Loved it! The doughnuts were delicate, not too sweet and really yummy with the jam. And the Cobb Salad was very tasty as well. I will definitely have lunch there again!"

  • "I went here for a team dinner with my coworkers and enjoyed it so much I had to bring my wife back for restaurant week. Everything we had was amazing, and was well-paired with the recommended wines. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. Not a place we could afford to regularly go, but the perfect place for a special night out."

  • "Enjoyed a delicious Restaurant Week 3-course lunch for $15. Three choices were offered for each course: appetizer, entree and dessert. Selected a nicely prepared refreshing salad, melt-in-your-mouth grilled cheese sandwich with a side of creamy tomato soup and for dessert a very tasty chocolate truffle cookie. Elena provided excellent service with a smile and made the dining experience even more enjoyable."

  • "Came here for the SWR lunch. The food is great and the portion are reasonable. Order "Beef tartare" (seaweed pesto, kewpie mayo, tobiko, taro chip) for appetizer. Beef itself seasonable heavily with sesame oil but the fish roes on top give it additional layer of flavor and texture, unlike ordinary tartare. seaweed pesto is a great addition; never had it before. One complain is the taro chip is still oily; the kitchen should have wait for the oil to drop or remove some of oil before serving. The combinations are great. Entree Albacore tuna (sticky rice, cucumber, fresno peppers, thai basil, nuoc cham, spicy peanut sauce ) is also great. Everything is seasoned to the right amount."

  • "A good restaurant with great appetizers and entrees. The kitchen was rather inconsistent the night we were there. It got out appetizers out quickly but took over 30minutes to get our entrees out. Overall a satisfying meal. The desserts were excellent and you need to save space for it."

  • "Dahlia was one of the first of Tom Douglas' restaurants and as all his restaurants it continues to shine with near perfection every time."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We've been to Dahlia Lounge several times and always have a great experience. The food is fantastic and it's such a great space to enjoy dinner with friends. Be sure not to miss the doughnuts for dessert. They might be my favourite part!"

  • "Had dinner with a party of four prior to attending the Broadway rendition of the Lion King on Saturday night. The service, food, and atmosphere were fantastic. The fresh, sustainable seafood and vegetables were all cooked to perfection. The wine top notch. The experience was full and satisfying. Will certainly return again and again!"

  • "Dahlia Lounge has always been awesome but I especially love them for their wonderful brunch menu. Love the ambience of the restaurant and the food is consistently of a high standard. I LOVE their "Made to order doughnuts," "Benedict," and "Five spice duck hash" are all to-die for!"

  • "Live in Seattle and have not been to Dahlia Lounge for awhile...so glad we returned! Place is like we remembered, greeted warmly at the front desk, table was ready and treated very well at our table! Food was excellent, tartar, oysters, halibut, lamb chops and the steak were all good choices! Our server was friendly and did a good job! So nice to see a Seattle classic still going strong with continued good food and service! Will return!!"

  • "Yes great service and beautiful restaurant but we won't be back. Too many other restaurants in the area to try. The food was nothing special. In fact my fish was dry and I couldn't finish it. We were here years ago at its old location (from out of town) and had a truly memorable meal of the most amazing black cod! It's true you can't go back! And now I won't go back!"

  • "We have been to Dahlia's many times and the food is always beautifully prepared and presented. We had Artic Char and our son had the Duck and they both were delicious. One of the things I love about Dalias's is their menu is very diverse so there is something for everyone. I recommend this restaurant."

  • "We have heard a lot about this restaurant and went to celebrate our anniversary. The service was excellent, and I am a bit hard to please. The food was very good. We enjoyed our evening very much. The added bonus was that the food is locally sourced."

  • "I believe if its a Tom Douglas restaurant, it will be extremely good. In 2 trips to Seattle this year we have eaten at 3 of hes restaurants and brought baked goods home from the Dahlia Bakery. Everything absolutely wonderful. Service is tops. Being the son of a baker, his baked goods and desserts, which are all prepared in one spot for all his restaurants, are superb. The Dahlia Lounge is his first place in Seattle and food is outstanding as is the service. Among us we had crab cakes and rotisserie 5-spice duck followed by a rhubarb tart w/buttermilk ice cream and the Triple Coconut Cream Pie. Highly recommended restaurant."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "We recently visited Seattle and The Dahlia Lounge was mentioned as a place to try on our weekend getaway. We made reservations for 8:45 and arrived earlier than anticipated. They were able to seat us early without any problems. My husband ordered the pork tenderloin which was delicious and I had the Peking Duck. The duck was okay, but the sauce, cabbage and veggies underneath was probably my favorite part. The atmosphere was quiet and romantic and we definitely enjoyed our time here."

  • "We were very happy with quality and preparation of the food. The service was good too."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "We dined at 8:30 PM, when the crowd thins out and the staff is more relaxed - our favorite time. Started with 6 oysters - delightfully ready to slurp with plenty of brine. Then I had a mahi mahi cooked perfectly, probably baked, then finished under a broiler, skin was removed, nice sauce. My wife went the other way and had almost every appetizer on the menu, and she was very pleased. We hadn't eaten at the Dahlia for some time, tho we live very close. The meal was a reminder that the Dahlia remains Tom's flagship restaurant. Dinner as above for 2 with 2 glasses of wine each ran $125 plus tip."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "The food, service and ambience was great. The restaurant seated us in a private part of the restaurant and we were able to have conversation. Our waitstaff was excellent and the food as usual was excellent. The Beechers grilled cheese and tomato soup was excellent."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Dahlia lounge almost always bats 1,000 in consistency. On this occasion, however, they missed the mark in that the steak I ordered was tough and chewy. They also had a long 12-15 minute break between salad course and entree. Everything else, including the service, was exemplary."

  • "I've been to Dahlia alone, with my wife, friends and business partners for lunch and dinner. Like all of Tom's restaurants they are dependable yet far from boring. He's the best restaurateur in Seattle and his places are like good friends."

  • "I have been going to the Dahlia for over 20 years and it continues to surprise and please. The food is excellent, inventive and the staff is warm and helpful. Lunch is great- one has a choice of a regular entree or a fabulous salad. Dinner has it all. Not to mention the desserts which if you have room left... A tiny example of how well the Dahlia does it is how they dress their salads. I have never had to ask for a salad (side salad or entree) to be lightly dressed. They get it. Really- many fine dining establishments don't always including Canlis.. Pretty good wine list too!!"
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "It was simply a fantastic dining experience. Waiter was polite and attentive but not obtrusive. Ambience was very mellow and exuded a type of old opulence. The food that we ordered (flat iron steak salad) was perfectly prepared, fresh and tasty!"
