A word from Tanglewood Supreme
Tanglewood Supreme is a local seafood bistro that brings a "fisherman to table" experience right to each and every diner. This philosophy inspires everything we do extending well beyond seafood into how we source our meats, produce and local spirits. With an uncompromising focus on excellence, the very best purveyors that the Pacific Northwest has to offer are our partners. It is this spirit that infuses every aspect of the restaurant, from its design and ambience to service and of course, our cuisine. Whether your palate craves fresh seafood or perhaps something equally delicious from the land, join us, sit at our chef's counter or perhaps a cozy booth, and taste a delicious modern twist to a bounty that is combined with a respect for tradition. Cheers!Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "My husband and I enjoyed dinner from the tasting menu: 7 courses including dessert. Each course was delicious, interesting, and artfully presented. Also, it was just the right amount of food (for us); not too much. About 2 hours from seating to leaving. We will absolutely be going back."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "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."

  • "We were a party of 6 and all enjoyed everything. Cocktails, soup, salad, entrees, dessert, coffee were all very good and the presentation was pleasant. Great service and uncomplicated interior design added positively to the experience. Tanglewood Supreme was a great place to enjoy good food and catch up with family and friends."

  • "Excellent chef. Every single dish was special. From appetizers to dessert."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Excellent variety of seafood - well presented. We did the 7 course tasting menu and loved the 2 1/2 hour meal."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "How wonderful to have this hidden gem in Magnolia. The weathervane scallops are the best I've ever had, cooked just right, and the oysters were fresh. The salmon tartare was also a treat. What a great little place. I'd stack them up against anything I've had for seafood in Seattle!!"
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "We are great fans of chef Jeffrey. His flexibility with accommodating special requests is always so very appreciated. The menu items are always creative and delicious. It makes me happy to have your seafood!"
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "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"

  • "We did the tasting menu and every dish was spot on. Wines were also wide enough for diverse pairing. Staff is very talented."

  • "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."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Down an obscure alley in Magnolia, this is a true foodie find. Chef Chappelle never disappoints. Super fresh ingredients always done with a twist. I tried an amazing new Hef beer. The goatcheese cheesecake is sophisticated, subtle and superb. Cannot wait to return."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "Great food, excellent service. We will definitely be back."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "This small but cozy little restaurant is a nice addition to the neighborhood. The food is excellent with a menu that is limited to a few choices but with preparation that is far above average. The service is friendly, the server knowledgeable. Highly recommended. Next time we will try the tasting menu!"

  • "Had a fantastic dinner here with a beautiful date. Daniel our server was attentive, kind, efficient. We did the 7 course tasting, each course was memorable, but the 6th course, scallops, was a masterpiece. It moved us to an awed silence. Only complaint - we were at a table against the wall that had a fire alarm switch right at eye level. Is didn't affect dinner, but it wasn't a very classy touch. Any way to avoid that?"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Tanglewood is located in what can charitably be called a side street, but is really a large alley that runs parallel to McGraw, in the heart of Magnolia village. I make it a point to sit at the counter whenever I go to Tanglewood, because we find the chef and his sous chef enormously entertaining as they prepare the various dishes for the patrons. And that's the extent of the ambiance at Tanglewood. You decoration of any sort -- just bare, reflective walls which make the tiny room a bit loud. But the food is just excellent and never fails to please."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "So, the power went out as we were seated. They had an emergency generator for the kitchen but no light throughout the restaurant. The wait staff was unbelievable; lit candles and proceeded to bring us a bunch of cold, non-cooked items which were all delectable. After about 45 minutes we were getting ready to head out when the lights went on! We stayed and had a fabulous dinner. It was a Valentine's Day dinner for my hubby and I and, I must say, very romantic indeed."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The food was amazing and the service was wonderful. It was a bit loud for our romantic dinner, but not so loud that we couldn't enjoy ourselves. We will definitely return."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "My valentine will be out of town on the 14th so he took me here to celebrate early. Had the tasting menu and couldn't have been happier. Took our own special bottle of wine and it was no problem. Great value! We enjoyed 6 different types of seafood over the 7 courses. Service was excellent. Owner came out and gave us a special greeting. We will go back again. We live on the East side but it was certainly worth the trip--even in the snow!!"
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Some of the best wait service I'd had in Seattle...good pacing of dishes, well informed about the food and wine menus."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "This was the second time we visited this bistro. We had the 7 course tasting dinner ($45) both times. It is a two hour event, but the time goes quickly because it is just a wonderful experience. Usually, your memory of an excellent meal is always better than the second time you have it. The second time we were there was just as wonderful as the first. The first time we went the restaurant was very busy and unpleasantly noisy. The second visit was on a Tuesday, we sat in a booth, and it was fine. Excellent service. I highly recommend it."
    Dined on 2/4/2014
  • "Tanglewood is worth coming to Magnolia. Kent, the owner, is very engaged and makes customers feel special, so do the waiters. I like that the menu is limited, changes, and each dish is special. Thank you Tanglewood."

  • "Celebrated my brother's birthday at Tanglewood Saturday night and had a fantastic time. The happy hour small plates were delicious, the entrees were amazing (we shared bites of the salmon, the scallops, and the lamb osso buco), and the desserts were downright decadent. Service was spot on. Looking forward to returning another night to try the albacore! Reservations are a must as it's a cozy little space."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Took my lady here for her Birthday and had a blast. The food was great, service was awesome and the cooks were amazing. I would definitely recommend it, we did the 7 course tasting and it was a good choice, got to sample a lot of the very fine different flavors they had to offer."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "This was our first time dining at this tiny restaurant. We were seated literally right at the door... the maitre d' said all the other tables were reserved for others... fine, but within 5 minutes of our being seated, two other 2-tops became available -- would have been nice to be offered a chance to wait for one of those, or even to move. The good: Nice cocktail and wine lists, and nice menu variety without being too long. The buttered potatoes with my fall-off-the-bone Lamb Osso Buco were deliciously light. The "could be better:" oysters arrived on a bed of rock salt rather than ice, and many of them were warmer than we like (and varied in temperature). The scallops were served on the cool side, and my red wine was served too warm."
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "Albeit I only dined once and the food was fantastic, the menu didn't really pop out at me as different or unique. I went for dinner and was disappointed when the Salmon Pastrami sandwich (I read about it in an article) wasn't on the menu, most likely a lunch item. I realize it's not fair to expect each restaurant I visit to have a unique and personal menu, but nothing stood out beyond the typical 'fancy' dishes like scallops, lamb, fish etc. I just want to be clear though, the food is delicious and expertly prepared. However, there wasn't anything special (besides the sandwich) I couldn't find at another restaurant closer to where I live in Bellevue."

  • "Looking for a dining adventure? This is a fun little spot, tucked away down an alley in a chic little part of Magnolia. I brought my professional foodie friend and she loved it! We recommend the Honeystung cocktails and the chef's 7-course tasting menu. Interesting and delicious food, finely crafted, with fresh ingredients. Our table enjoyed the rutabega and apple beignets, greens with apple, cheese and nuts (salad), a scallop crudo with plantain chips, mussels and clams in white wine (with amazing root veggie frites), tuna filet in a miso broth with greens, sake poached octopus, and a fabulous warm dark chocolate cake. Wonderful evening..."

  • "Excellent choices - oysters on the half shell, mussels, pumpkin risotto, delicious house salad, tuna tartare. We enjoyed sharing several small plates and then we shared 1 entree off the dinner menu. Our entree was lamb shank and it was melt in your mouth good."
    Dined on 1/3/2014
  • "My wife and I had visited here 2 times before and had horrible experiences. One thing in common - The same server... We decided one night that we'd try it again after waiting quite sometime. We went in with an open mind and definitely with the 3 strikes philosophy! Wow! This time it was a completely different story and we had a great experience. The food and service were outstanding and they give any restaurant in the Seattle area a run for their money. I travel around the world quite frequently for work and I'm so glad that we have something of this caliber only a few blocks away. We can now say "we've got a place"!"
