It is this spirit that infuses every aspect of the restaurant, from its design and ambience to service and of course, our cuisine.

    We had a group of 6 so were able to sample a few entrées. My albacore was stupendous, I would order that again in a heartbeat. It came with excellent sides vegetables, potatoes and piece of sweet cabbage - just excellent. 2 people ordered salmon which was quite rare, smoky flavored, very soft but with a sear on the outside. The person who ordered venison was very happy with their selection, and I heard positive reviews on the clams and the scallops. Salads and desserts were fine. The cocktails we started with were all very good, I really liked the house Old Fashioned. All in all, we really enjoyed this small eatery tucked away in Magnolia.

    I recently saw this restaurant on some top 100 list so added it to my 'must try' list. Very disappointed. Some of the menu items were great (albacore loin), but some were not. The special venison osso bucco came with pickled vegetables. What an odd combination. I make better at home. Server spent the entire time promoting his own side business. Would not return.

    I hadn't been to Tanglewood since shortly after their opening. I had a great meal then and did again on this visit. Excellent flavors; i really like that the natural flavors of foods are highlighted and not covered up by strong sauces, herbs, etc. Strong recommendation to lean toward seafood when ordering. The other things on the menu are still very good but seafood is where Tanglewood excels.

    Our dinners were great - seared albacore and bacon wrapped chicken breast - were great, as were the accompaniments. Real attention to detail for fresh vegetables and sauces, well done. I enjoyed the carrot and kohlrabi latkes, and the wonderful salad with fresh peaches. This is a real find and worth the trip to Magnolia

    Great food, unique/industrial location. The tasting menu for $45 was a great deal. Only a crying baby at the table next to us put a damper on a great evening. Not sure what the restaurant could have done about it. So glad we tried Tanglewood Supreme while we were in town.

    If you want a nice view this is not your place as it is on small road overlooking some dumpsters but the inside the resturant the ambiance was lovely with a great open kitchen. If you like cooking would be fun to sit at the bar area around the kitchen. We did the tasting menu - 7 courses for $45 which was great value. Our server was very professional but not particularly friendly. A man who I'm assuming was the owner also walked around throughout the night chatting with diners and was very friendly. Overall a great experience

    We ordered the sampler: courses for $45. Perfect size courses with an amazing and delicious preparations. Tasted a few items I know I would never have order on my own--so pleasantly pleased with the flavors. I was worried that there might not be enough food for my larger size husband but even he was full….I had part of my entree packaged to take home-wanted to be sure to have enough room for dessert--sure glad I did! Vegetarian sampler only $35.00 We sat at the chef's bar this visit and enjoyed watching the chefs prepare the meals.

    I went here for a nice romantic date night and was not disappointed. If you're looking for ambiance, then you could likely find better places since it doesn't have a view or anything, although the town of Magnolia is nice and the inside is put together well. If you want to impress with amazing food and service, this place will not disappoint. I'll be back for sure.

    $45 for a 7 course tasting menu? That's the best deal in Seattle. The dishes were inventive and very tasty. I even ate and enjoyed octopus! I especially loved the chèvre-stuffed squash blossoms that were done tempura-style.

    We went to Tangewood for our anniversary and had a great meal. The food was priced reasonable, was innovative but not off in left field. We shared the grilled octopus. It had a wonderful flavor. My wife had scallops. They were more than accommodating for her lactose intolerance. I had the Hanger steak. The steak was one of the best flavored piece of beef I have eaten. The only downside was it was very loud even with it being a small place. We will be back for sure.

    Started with a cocktail. They make the best Manhattan in town! Food was very good. Started with an order of squash blossoms and root vegetable fries. My husband loved the fries but decided next time we'd pass on the squash blossoms. Next we had a wonderful quinoa and heirloom tomato salad. It was so good I tried to duplicate it last night at home. Theirs was definitely better. Then we had the tuna and hanger steak for our entree. The hanger steak was fantastic. My husband felt the tuna was a little bland in flavor. He said he'd definitely order the steak next time. We didn't have them this time but their scallops are fantastic too. Be sure to make a reservation, it's a very small restaurant that fills up quickly

    Our family had yet another exceptional meal at Tanglewood Supreme. No traffic to deal with to get there from QA,parking right in front, the three of us were thoughtfully seated at the corner of the counter so we could easily converse and watch Chef effortlessly turn out dish after dish. Started out with the Honeystung. A perfect summer cocktail. Every dish we had was superb and shared both desserts. Great NW wine list. Always exceptional service. This is the most consistent, high quality restaurant. And can I say this...they have air conditioning! Yay!

    This was our fourth dinner at Tanglewood Supreme. We keep returning because it's phenomenal - some of the very best food in Seattle, and we eat out a *lot* at the top places from Ballard to Fremont to Belltown to Capitol Hill. Who'd have guessed that a place that competes with the very best would be tucked away on a little side street in Magnolia? We've had the tasting menu - wonderful. We've gone with groups of 6, ordered all but one of the 7 dinner entrees available that evening (the killer was deciding which one *not* to order), and passed the plates in synchrony - a fun and outstanding rotating meal. We've always had wonderful food, wonderful service, a great mix of people from the neighborhood and the city. It doesn't get any better.

    After dining there a second time I have to admit that the quality and preparation of the food has been consistently great each time. My family lives in Magnolia so this is a convenient location, but there's plenty of convenient places to go in this neighborhood, it's just not often you find a place that can offer a gourmet dining experience repeatedly. They were very thoughtful in their menu recommendation for our 2 year old and also advised against the more expensive tasting meal as the long timeframe would probably surpass our daughter's tolerance level. Our server was knowledgeable about the menu and happily answered questions. Our party of 6 + 1 child had a great meal for our special family occasion and we'll be back again!

    This restaurant is fabulous. The service is friendly, knowledgeable and impeccable. The food is creative and fresh. We chose the tasting menu--chef's choice. Each of the seven tasting dishes were outstanding. It's Magnolia location means that parking is easy and it's really close to downtown Seattle. It is especially nice to be welcomed by the owner and know that he takes such pride in the restaurant and the service. It really shows.

    Terrific fish dishes highlight this tucked-away neighborhood gem, down an alley from Starbucks. The food preparation -- which we enjoy watching from our seats at the counter -- is spectacular and the service is perfect. The only negative is the lack of decor -- there simply has been no effort made to make the room look even marginally attractive. Good thing they have great food and service.

    We celebrated my birthday on a Tuesday night at Tanglewood Supreme and had a great time. We both had the tasting menu (7-course, 2+ hour meal) and were very happy with the options. While all courses were great, my two favorites happened to be the first and 6th courses and both were based on scallops. The first appetizer was a scallop cerviche which was amazing...and the sixth was the scallop entre. Highly recommended. If possible, definitely sit at the counter around the kitchen so you can see all the food being prepared.

    This small, contemporary minimalist design restaurant with some open kitchen seating seating is perfect for patrons who are into expertly prepared food with out of the ordinary presentation and preparation and some adventure in the limited range of options, but which include choices for those less adventurous as well. Everything was fresh, succulent, and imaginative and the service was excellent as well, a great choice for a special occasion for those dining primarily for the quality of the cuisine and service vs. location and setting.

    Chef Jeffery was right there across the table from us, preparing our tasting right as we were eating them. Each plate was filled with incredible flavor combos, each one pitch perfect (but a note for other diners, the tasting we had was pescatarian, but did include octopus, for what that's worth for others with peculiar choices of meat they do/do not eat). The desert with the basil ice cream blew me away.

    My parents were visiting from NY, and I wanted to impress them with Seattle dining. Tanglewood Supreme was a perfect way to do that - amazing locally sourced seafood, interesting combinations of flavors, and warm ambiance. While not cheap, the prices are reasonable for the quality of food. The portions are just right, leaving enough room for dessert (which was also delicious). We also got a visit from the restaurant's owner who was able to share some of his personal stories about the food and the business - it shows how much he cares about the dining experience of his customers. I highly, highly recommend.

    This may have been the most consistently excellent meal I have had in quite some time. A frequent business traveler, I eat out A LOT. I researched this restaurant online and took a gamble that it would be a hit with my business associates, who were joining me from NYC and France. We were seated at the corner of the chef's table, which gave us the opportunity to converse while at the same time look in on the activities in the open kitchen. Quite impressive. Although we were disappointed that they were out of oysters for the evening, we decided to begin the evening with a round of edamame and a really nice local Pinot Gris. I had the scallops, while both of my comrades opted for the steak. Scallops were perfect, steak was unbelievable

    Four of us had an enjoyable Friday night dinner here. Excellent service with good food and cocktails. A pleasant and fairly busy small neighborhood restaurant, with tasteful modern decor (with tables built of apparently re-purposed old wood). Nice for us to venture from our home turfs of Ballard & Wallingford up to the happening "downtown" core of Magnolia, where Tanglewood Supreme is located along with numerous other new restaurants nearby. Reservations recommended, as on busy nights looks like it fills up fast.

    We had a lovely meal but the waiter seemed impatient rather than attentive and made a big deal about how the timing of the entire evening would be off if the one person who wanted the tasting menu selected it. The rest of us made it clear that we didn't mind waiting the two hours the tasting menu might take but he still discouraged it and was not accomodating. Then I felt rushed to order -- he came to our table to see if we were ready at least 3 times when it was obvious we were relaxed, taking our time and enjoying our wine. I'd go back because the food was great but would request a different server!
