Diner Reviews
  • "We celebrated our 5th anniversary here. We were wished a Happy Anniversary upon our arrival and given a corner booth. The server was very patient with our indecision and helpful with recommendations. We considered having just plate after plate of the excellent green salad, but decided, with so many delicious offerings, to have an actual dinner. Although my halibut was cooked slightly more than I would have liked, my husband's steak was perfectly cooked. Everything else was excellent. If we could afford it, we would eat here far more often."

  • "Dahlia Lounge is my top pick for a really nice dining experience in Seattle, but my recent Friday night experience leaves me reminding myself this is not NY, but Go-to-bed-at a-sensible-Seattle."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "So many fabulous places in Seattle but this is too good to skip. Fresh, inventive and always something new to try."

  • "At a time when the restaurant was almost empty, our server was almost invisible"
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "The food was amazing, and I think I have high standards. The server was very friendly and knowledgable. I brought my own wine, as this was my birthday, but the wine list looked impressive and reasonably priced. I want to go back to Seattle so that I can try other things on the menu!"

  • "I got the shrimp cobb salad. I love cobb salad and sadly, this was a disappointment. It was almost all lettuce. It was also about the most expensive cobb I've had. My husband had duck hash and he liked his dish."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Whatever they do at the DL, they do it right. Lamb was cooked to perfection. Scallops were seared exactly right."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Very little food for the price. Flavors seemed odd - we ordered a dish that seemed to be an Asian "fusion" of sorts and it just turned out that none of it was done well. Won't be back, and will avoid this along with several other TD restaurants. Please - Serious Pie or Lola are better options in the area if you want to pay too much for too little."

  • "Dined with out of town guests who were extremely impressed. The ambiance , service, variety, presentation and taste were all wonderful!"
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "The items they got right were fabulous. The items they got wrong were terrible. The geoduck was well past its prime and downright fishy tasting. The regular duck was overcooked. The crabcakes might've been the best I have had in my life, and the salmon was fabulous. Half of our meal was great, the other half was bad. If they could put it together and have everything as good is the crabcakes, this would be a five-star restaurant."

  • "Consistently great. Nice entrees, especially fish. I depend on this place! Why can't Tom build some place in University Place, WA?"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Salmon was blah - skin was cooked well - very crispy, but that was it as far as any special flavor. Steak was over sauced and tough. Scallops were bland as well. Fourth diner can't remember what he had. VERY $$$$ for the lack of originality, flavor, or uniqueness. Tom D are you riding on your fame? Coconut Cream pie was delicious!! Best I ever had. But I'm not a dessert person, so - forgettable."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Really, really good food. All of our dishes were seafood in one form or another (except of course the exquisite coconut cream pie Tom Douglas restaurants are known for, and which did not disappoint), and all were fresh, delicately prepared with gently balanced flavors. Delightful, satisfying, our go-to spot for that really wonderful meal you're willing to splurge for. The prices are up there for this out-of-town girl, but I'm happy to save up for the experience! Oh, and the house martini was the best I've ever had..."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Beet salad was delicious and unique. The salmon was tasty but for that caliber restaurant I was a little disappointed. I have had better. The pretzel bread on the plate was surprisingly the best thing. Potstickers we top notch."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "I took my family to Dahlia Lounge for a post-graduation dinner. I'm sure it's a great restaurant, but my experience was awful. For the price shouldn't every dinning experience be awesome. Food: The short rib appetizer was incredible. However, my fish was extremely dry and my dads steak was over cooked, I can not speak for anyone else at the table. After placing our order, our meal for 8 did not come out for an hour and 15 min. Service: In that time, the waitress did not come by once to check on us. Before ordering it took me over 20 min to flag her down because I couldn't for the life of me make eye contact. She didn't even come around to ask us for drinks. I've worked in the service industry and this was unacceptable, even for Seattle."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Dahlia is my family's favourite restaurant to eat at when we visit Seattle. I've never been disappointed. The food and service are always incredible. This time I had the bread salad, which I hadn't tried before and it was fantastic. The doughnuts for a dessert are a can't miss also."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "I've been coming to Dahlia Lounge for the past 20 years and I've always had a consistently delicious meal. Simply prepared foods with incredible flavor. Make sure you try the bread salad and the doughnuts with seasonal jam and marscapone (both are always a treat)! Make sure you bring a dollar or two for James, the homeless man that greets visitors and keeps the area clean, and extend him your hand and a smile. He's a good man."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "From the outside the place looked deserted but once inside you can tell the diners were enjoying their meals. Very good size portions for priuce of quality food. However when paying for bread and there are choices one should be told that in advance."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Was in town for the marathon and tried the Dahlia Lounge as it was very close to our hotel and the reviews were very good. The restaurant did not disappoint. The food was fantastic. Service was very attentive and the atmosphere very warm and inviting. I would definitely return if in the area."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Happy to enjoy another delicious meal at this Seattle favorite! Had a seafood sampler appetizer which was ideal for sharing. The halibut with pappadum and chickpeas was great as was the salmon. Nice atmosphere and attentive but not pesky service."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "First time visit. Recommended by several friends & it was great. Food & service were second to none. Would definitely go back."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "We're always happy with our food and the service at Dahlia. Brunch usually includes our two kids, and they've done a great job accommodating all four of us more than once. The bacon is to die for, the eggs benedict is a dependable favorite, and there's nothing on the menu that has ever disappointed."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Usually go here for dinner but lunch was very good. A baked turkey for a great turkey sandwich , and a very tasty potato salad, with homemade pickles. Take me anytime!"

  • "Had an early dinner on Tuesday, June 10th with friends in town from the mid-west. Just the typical great Dahlia Lounge experience. A chef prepared strawberry concoction with cocktails. The table side service was professional and attentive. My guests had salmon and raved about it. I did oysters and then the risotto."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "I had halibut w/ chickpeas and curry sauce which is one of best fish dishes I have ever had in a restaurant. "

  • "my family had brunch at the dahlia lounge after staying downtown saturday night. we have twin four year olds and we were originally a bit hesitant taking them to brunch. however, the staff was wonderful and accomodating. the girls loved the warm donuts, and our meals were all terrific. we particularly enjoyed the crabcake (good sized crabcake with a full salad that accompanied it). reasonably priced for the quality of food and service. "

  • "Celebrated my birthday here with a friend. The drinks were amazing, the appetizer with clams and fiddlehead ferns was off the charts delicious. We ordered the tasty duck and the halibut. Both with great flavors. We topped the evening off with the crème caramel which was so smooth and silky I wanted to cry. The waiter was perfect. He was knowledgeable, attentive and sweet. I can't wait to go back. It was a wonderful culinary experience."

  • "Dahlia lounge was a repeat for us as we had been there a few times previously on visits to Seattle. Once again it didn't disappoint! We had the Ahi starter and Peking Duck main. Both were excellent! The duck is very tasty and is a good choice if you are looking to avoid a few carbs! To finish DONUTS!!!! and they also were not a disappointment this time! What a simple but spectacular way to finish off a great meal!"

    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "we go to this place about every 2 to 3 weeks. the menu has lots of small plates and large we love to share so no matter how hungry you are you can go there... plus they keep updating it so it feels like you are going to a different restaurant each time you go. What you can rely on is the same cool cocktails, neat half-size bottles of good wine, and great service. All the Tom Douglas restaurants offer great food but Dahlia Lounge is the one where the service is dependable. We start with the seabar sampler EVERY time, if you like sushi/sashimi you don't wanna miss it. Afterwards, the chocolate mousse cake and the coconut cream pie are amazing finishes to the meal and not too big or heavy"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "We had high hopes for the restaurant as it came highly recommended in Trip Advisor. We had the seafood sampler but most of the food was disappointingly bland. The razor clams didn't have the any distinguishing flavor or texture (we had them enough times elsewhere to know what they should be like) - my husband had to commit the cardinal sin of adding salt to his seafood. The salmon and tuna were OK, octopus was decent. The redeeming highlights were the smoked black cod, which was delicately smoked and moist, and the famous coconut cream pie."
