A word from The Tin Table
The Tin Table is hidden away on the second floor of the Oddfellow's building. Upon entering you'll feel like you've just discovered a secret. Brick, tin and a wall full of champagne glasses are just some of the elements of the space.

Chef Frank Wiegosiek loves to combine his passion for food and art into an edible palette of simple, colorful and creative plates. By using the freshest, most thoughtfully raised ingredients, Frank's menu shows his appreciation for the local farmer, and whenever possible he uses sustainability and locally sourced organics in his food.

    Excellent meal. Fascinating old building. Handy place to have a nice meal before swing dancing across the hall at the Ballroom. We weren't locals, so the convenience of not having to look for parking in two different places for a night out was what drove our choice, but the food was surprisingly good and the service was excellent. No air conditioning on a warm evening, but there were ceiling fans and we were seated next to a big open window. The ambiance evoked glamorous evenings in the 1930s and 1940s. The building is now somewhat threadbare, but feels authentic. The very steep stairs are a reminder of how much building codes have changed over the decades.

    We had tickets for a show at the Oddfellows and so made a reservation for the Tin Table right next door. The food was wonderful, our server was amazing and went to a lot of trouble to find our preferred bottle of wine when we came back after the show for a drink.

    We enjoyed our meals at the Tin Table, but the food was overshadowed by poor service. The wait staff could not remember the one special and had to dash off to retrieve his notes to refresh his memory. Our starter arrived after dinner (although the waitstaff did comp it since it was his oversight). After our post-dinner starter was finished, the waiter brought our ticket before asking if anyone wanted coffee or dessert. Then he seemed annoyed that we might be interested in dessert. Waitstaff in seattle are generally very professional, but this guy needs some training about how to execute his job.

    We often celebrate with friends and family at this delightful venue. The energy from the Century Ballroom adds an extra fillip to the hospitable friendly service starting with the warm smile at check-in and "happenin"bar scene. The extraordinary menu is full of tasty dishes, varying with the season. One of us tried the Boar in a fit of adventure, but was disappointed by its unusual texture and fat content. However, the rest of us smiled over our succulent salads, baked halibut, steak frittes, and my favorite, the Floozie Burger, best on the west coast. We like knowing there is always a gourmet vegetarian selection, as well. Of course the meal is enhanced by the outstanding wine list and reasonable prices.

    We hit Tin Table on a Tuesday and it was very chill, but I can imagine with its lovely food and location that it was a rare night. We had a group of four but I was early so I had happy hour sangria and the truffle fries - I can't stop telling people to go get these tiny shredded fried pieces of heaven. I had halibut with shaved asparagus I loved EVERY BITE!!

    We were sat in a far corner without any light. The waitress eventually came around and took our order. 50 minutes later, after having to get up to find her, did our dinner arrive. It was explained to us that because we didn't order appetizers, our dinner was delayed. When dinner did arrive, the halibut portions were tiny-- medallions really. The steak was decent. Throughout the meal the entire restaurant was silenced as the bartender beat what appeared to be a sack of ice. I would not recommend Tin Table and will not be returning.

    If you want your steak properly prepared to Medium Rare, then you better order it rare here. I'm not super picky, but I do like my steak a little pink (not well done). And when I sent it back, it came back (20 minutes later) completely raw. I guess they showed me! Will not return. The giggling obnoxious bachelorette party type at the next table didn't help. I found the crowd to be not very interesting loud-talkers....lots of first date awkwardness.

    Super friendly wait staff, good food and nice atmosphere. We picked this place last minute not knowing fully what to expect since we weren't locals and the reviews were mixed. The location is a bit odd located on the second floor of what looks like a small office building or apartment complex. Once we got upstairs, we were pleasantly surprised by the small and fun nature of the room. We were greeted and seated immediately. Everything we ordered arrived fast and hot and we both enjoyed the meals. Would I recommend this place as a must visit for those visiting Seattle? Probably not. But I would suggest if you need a last minute selection, go for it.

    This is a charming restaurant in an old ballroom facility. Very different and funky -- sort of like you'd find in the Village in NYC. Service was excellent and very friendly. Food was good, but probably not up to "foodie" standards. Overall, a very nice experience I'd do again.

    After profusely apologizing because the table we reserved wasn't quite ready, we had a seat in the lounge area. The funny bartender challenged my basic cocktail order and suggested jazzing it up a bit. I said sure! No sooner had he brought us our drinks and our table was ready. Our server knew the menu inside and out and worked with me to navigate the dairy-free friendly options. The salmon and the pork were both delicious. Had we not been so full we would've tried dessert. There are sooo many new restaurants in the Pike / Pine corridor, not all of them will make it. It comes down to the basics: great food, friendly service, fun atmosphere. Tin Table gets it!

    Wonderful atmosphere, delicious food and good service was the perfect place to go before seeing a show at Century Ballroom. The following night, my husband and I went to see the show again and popped into the bar there. Nice cozy chairs, brick walls, dark light and a clever display of glassware lit by blue light .... simply loved it.

    My husband and I are total foodies and we love restaurant week for the opportunity to go check out new spots and try some new foods. We have been taking part for years now. But we were disappointed with Tin Table. It felt like we were put back by the kitchen because their additional little dining room is back by the kitchen. So the romantic aspect was pretty much out at that point. We had the scallops and the liver as appetizers. The scallops were so small that i wouldn't call it an appetizer and the liver was Interesting but not a home run. Nothing to wow us in the appetizers for their small size. We had the lamb and the lasagna for dinner which was good but again, not great. And we were still hungry by the time the dessert came.

    I've been eager to try The Tin Table and Seattle Restaurant week was the perfect excuse. Sadly, my dining companion and I were both underwhelmed. We had the apple-wood smoked sea scallops (which I did enjoy), roasted rack of lamb w/ couscous, nettle lasagna, key-lime tart (also tasty) and flourless brownie. The couscous fell flat and was plain, leaving a lot to be desired. The nettle lasagna underplayed such a great local & seasonal item -- nettles. Drinks were great and our server was very friendly. Would recommend to friends for happy hour/drinks.

    Came here with a group of seven last Saturday night. Everything was great; the food was delicious (recommend the trout, gnocchi, and mussels for sure), and the drinks just right....however. We could not stop laughing when a group member ordered some bread for the table, and all the waiter brought was literally a medium-sized piece of bread--basically a portion for one person. After a few drinks, it was pretty funny, and we 'shared' the piece of bread around the table with each person breaking off a small bite. Other than one drink order mix-up, we had no other issues and had a wonderful evening here.

    I went there because of the supposedly vibrant cool atmosphere but mostly all tables were organized into 2 big groups leaving an empty space in the middle. My table for 2 was against a wall at the kitchen entrance, isolated from the others and it felt pretty awkward. I was hoping for a cool sophisticated vibe and the whole birthday group with ballons really spoiled that. It also took forever for us to be seated and to even get a drink in the bar while we waited. The food is nothing special so big regret to have booked in that place.

    I had dined at the Tin Table before but never in the back room. It has 4 small tables. It's not as pretty as the main dining area but it was signifantly quieter. As we left the restaurant it was notable how noisy the main dining area is. They open the back room on weekends only. Our sever was very attentive and had lots of attention to detail. They were out of the wine we chose and as we debated another option she brought us a sample of each of the two we were considering which helped us choose. From the window we could see people playing bicycle polo on the basketball court across the street which was entertaining. Liver pate starter was delicious. Had both the menu duck risotto and special seafood risotto and both were wonderful.

    We've dined here on 3 separate occasions and it's hit or miss. The ambiance is lovely but the menu is limited and they always feel just a little under-staffed. Service people are all super gracious and fun but they seem to disappear throughout the meal and no one else is around to ask for salt and pepper or the bill. Overall, I give it a B.

    Shoestring fries and arugula salad were simple and perfect. The duck risotto with pecans was rich, with a delightful balance between savory and sweet. The rice was cooked perfectly. The gnocchi were bursting with flavor in pesto with pear and cherry tomatoes. I also appreciated the good selection of moderately-priced wines In all, a wonderful destination for a superb dinner.

    I took clients to the The Tin Table on 2/20. When we first arrived at 7pm on a Thursday, the place was empty and the lights were up. Felt very stoic/rigid. We saddled up to the bar to have a drink before heading to our table. The bartender did a great job with our cocktails - we tried several including Laman's Terms which was yummy. We were shown to our 4 top which was located by the window. I find the whole Century Ballroom building drafty and cold. We were cold throughout dinner. Salads/starters were small. The mains were decent sized, but nothing that memorable. Overall, I would not rush back to The Tin Table - there are too many other great spots in Seattle.

    The Tin Table has become our go-to spot on Capital Hill for special occasions or a happy hour burger. You have to try the Floozy burger and truffle fries. Best burger in a long-long time. The more formal foods and desserts never let you down either. Drinks are wonderful, prices are reasonable, service is great. Be sure to take a class or go dancing at the ballroom after dinner!

    I came here with friends for a bday dinner before a night out in Cap Hill. The menu looked amazing with all the great options. I kept it simple and went with the steak and frites. The layout of the restaurant is interesting. We were seated in the back by the kitchen,but getting there was a bit of an obstacle course. Service was a bit slow and not sure it was that busy. We came and it was snowing pretty good out. But ordered a scotch on the rocks and it took a while to get my drink. Steak came out cook how I liked it med rare. Flavor was ok not great. There was a small dollop of blue cheese but not enough to add flavor to the steak. There was also a small bundle of arugula. And the remaining 2/3 of my plate was covered in curly fries.
