- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 10/22/2014Honestly one of the best dining experiences and best meal of my life. Go!Special Features:
- Ravishing foodrattlebrainDined on 10/22/2014I've walked by this place many times and wondered if it was even open as it seemed so quiet. I decided to give it a try during restaurant week, which was a brilliant choice. Once inside the little house which is Tilth, my husband and I felt as though we'd stumbled upon a large hip dinner party - it was lively and welcoming inside, full of people celebrating life with excellent food and wine. Many of the menu choices were intriguing twists on familiar foods, such as roasted chicken finished in duck fat. We'll return again and again!Special Features:
- Loved it!Foodie34Dined on 10/22/2014Went with my girlfriends for a girls night-out and to try their menu for Seattle Restaurant Week; and we couldnt be happier. The service was top notch, food was great and we had a wonderful time. Will do it again.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Restaurant WeekOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 10/21/2014An excellent meal which we had anticipated. We were here for the 3 for $30 special and added a $25 wine flight which was delightful,Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fantastic ServiceJoeADined on 10/20/2014SO and I came here for Seattle Restaurant week. Our server was fantastic. And the ambiance was great: their choice of music (mainly Sinatra era/style tunes) was spot on and set a great atmosphere in the cozy dining room. Overall, the food was great - the highlight dishes for me were the Tuna Croquette and the Chocolate Ganache Cake. The cake was fantastically decadent and the croquette was perfectly cooked, crispy outside and perfect inside. The one slightly down point was the semifreddo, which was a little too frozen/solid, but the server quickly corrected that by bringing us another chocolate ganache cake instead.Special Features:
- Creative not tastyYuanDined on 10/20/2014I went to tilth for the first time during seattle restaurant week and is a little bit disappointed. I get the soup for appetizer, it is creative, and a good one as well. For entree, i get the pumpkin risotto with goat cheese and is a bit disappointed. it is simply a creative, yet weird combination. I can only eat half of the serving size. I switch the dessert from pumpkin to chocolate cake at the last minute and was right! (my friend get the pumpkin one and is simply weird) The quality chocolate cake used is great, so are the mousse(?) on the top of it. You can taste the seasalt from eating the cake, which, to me, is a great one, though is said to be less creative. The service, nonetheless, is absolutely wonderful.Special Features:
- My first time at TilthPepperDined on 10/19/2014I had first seen the chef on Top Chef Masters, and resolved to visit, when I saw Tilth on the SRW list, I knew it was meant to be. The restaurant is in a small former house, so it's quite cozy, but very beautifully decorated. It definitely has an intimate atmosphere. After our server took our order she came back with a surprise amuse bouche. It's always fun to feel like you're being treated! The two stand out dishes were the pork belly and the sasparilla. I could probably have both every day and not tire of them! Couple that with prompt friendly service and you have a winner!Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 10/16/2014We enjoyed every bite of our meal. From the apple/celeriac soup to the broccoli to the perfectly prepared Albacore. Service was perfect and the ambiance of the restaurant is fantastic.Special Features:
- Great for brunchLkm27VIPDined on 10/12/2014Great service and cozy atmosphere. I wish the food portion is little more. If you go with a lot of appetite you need to order two. It is good place for romantic dinner for couple.Special Features:
- A Sure-Thing Kind of DinnersirilinneaVIPDined on 10/11/2014We haven't been to Tilth in a while, however we've always had delicious brunches and dinners here in the past. This past dinner was incredible. Each dish was delicious, we did the tasting menu, a bottle of champagne and two wine pairings. All were fantastic. The tuna belly, steak and the theo chocolate dessert were the highlights. As was the bottle of champagne the sommelier helped us select. The only thing I don't love about Tilth, is the tables are incredibly close to each other. So if you're a lively bunch (us), or a couple on their anniversary, you're cramping each other's style trying to both enjoy yourself, but not bother your neighbors who are about a foot away.Special Features:
- Excellent Food and ServiceamparksDined on 10/11/2014Celebrated at Tilth for a birthday brunch. Reservation was for 4, but a second table was quickly adjoined to ours when we arrived as a party of 5. We appreciated that, since most places would just crowd in another chair at the end of the table. We were also given two complimentary loaves of banana walnut bread in celebration of our son's birthday. Yum! The menu selections, food, ambiance and service were all quite excellent.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Loved the small plate optionFoodfanDined on 10/10/2014We ordered a bunch of their small plates. Our server was knowledgeable about the menu and brought our food in the right order and spaced it nicely so we didn't have 10 plates at our table at once. The food itself was really aromatic and flavorful. Our favorite for the evening was the steak. We'll have to come back to eat just the steak in the large plate option. It's definitely pricey, hence the fine dining tag, but it's worth the experience esp if you are celebrating, like we were.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Unbelievable tasting menuBugsBunnyDined on 9/27/2014The imagination and execution of the chef and her team is unbelievable. Pairings of items you wouldn't consider came off perfectly (mushroom pesto papardelle over a corn paste, watermelon slices with feta, salmon perfectly cooked with zucchini 'pasta'). Waiter was very knowledgeable and a nice guy to talk to over the 2 hour tasting experience. Great looking space inside and out. Music choice initially was odd for the environment (upbeat jazzy pop), but replaced by a perfect sound (French mellow jazz).Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Tilth, a GREAT place to dineNannDined on 9/22/2014What to say about Tilth except that it is exceptional! As many times as we have been there we have never been disappointed with anything. Every month the menu is different, and every month the chef gets it just right. No end to his imagination and talent.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Repeat CustomerCarolynRDined on 9/21/2014Tilth remains my go to brunch spot. The service is always great and the food is impeccably presented. It also never feels crowded for brunch which I find is a rare feeling for sunday brunch in seattle. I will be back time and time again!Special Features:
- Seattle45dinerDined on 9/20/2014We always love Tolth. The seasonal food is great and there is always something for my meat and potatoes husband as well as myself.(tending toward vegetarian)..Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Outstanding food, great serviceBallardFellaDined on 9/20/2014Already recommended it to friends as an indulgent pleasure that's wirth every penny.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great foodsonumomDined on 9/19/2014Got the wine pairings with the 5 course tasting menu. The food was amazing but I was disappointed with the wine pairings. Not worth the money. Great ambiance and very romantic so perfect for a date night and special occasions.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A few issuesOuttolunchDined on 9/18/2014The food was great - flavor, texture, presentation. Service was very good. However there seemed to be a lighting war going on with the staff. Lights would go up, then get turned down. We asked for them to be turned up because we were unable to see the presentation of our food. We actually turned our flashlights on to see the food - not good. Also 3 of us had to wait while the 4th person in our party had to send her entree back because it was not done as she had ordered it. By the time she got it, our food was warmish and we had waited about five minutes - unacceptable. Would I recommend Tilth - with these issues noted - very loud, lighting poor.Special Features:
- DownhillEat2liveDined on 9/17/2014We used to love Tilth, really. It was definitely a place to find really great food thoughtfully prepared. The ambiance was great with limited seatings during the night, and servers that always insured that your wine glass and water were refilled. I want you to please note the past tense. Now, what can I say. Our first course was slapped down in front of us with the person running off. No mention of the preparation and worse, no seasoning on my tomato salad. Some salt or pepper would have gone a long way. The salmon rillette was actually a mousse, and a chef that doesn't know the difference should be called into question. But still, we had hopes from there that were quickly dashed. The chef has no idea how to balance flavors. Sad.
- Good food, great date!OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 9/16/2014We ate out on the patio and it was very quiet and a great date night. Our server was amazing and was very helpful finding the perfect drink for us.Special Features:

- It's Tilth, y'all!!!TheDiningJsDined on 9/12/2014Visited for our 5th Wedding Anniversary and was HIGHLY impressed as this was a gem off if the traditional dining path!! Really enjoyed the 8-course regular & vegetarian option, with the wine paring, and left completely satisfied as we received a most delectable array of culinary surprises that became EVEN BETTER with their wine compliment!!! I HIGHLY recommend Tilth for any romantic, small group, or other festive occasion as they will really take care of you!!! :))) JFSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Delicious unique foodOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 9/12/2014The food was amazing! Great choices and fantastic delivery. I enjoyed everything. However, our waiter was not very helpful, did not even attempt to explain the tasting portions or options on the menu. He was cordial and answered questions when asked directly but I am definitely used to a more engaged wait staff that represents the menu and theme of the restaurant.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- PattDined on 9/12/2014It was an experience. Definitely a special occasion, perhaps a one-time only destination. Waiter was attentive and not overly intrusive.Special Features:

- Tilth Birthday DinnerGDO1Dined on 9/6/2014We had a great dinner at Tilth with one exception. We ordered the 5 course tasting menu which was great with the EXCEPTION of the steak. It was too tough to eat!Special Features:
- Great food!badgerdinerDined on 9/6/2014We just love the offerings at Tilth. They offer seasonal, local, organic food that is always top notch. Portions are a bit small. We recommend getting a bunch of stuff and sharing it.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- A gem in the Emerald CityOtowndinerVIPDined on 8/29/2014We found Tilth during a recent trip to Seattle. It was a very enjoyable evening in a relaxing neighborhood setting. The food was outstanding, service great. The wine pours a little short but a unique selection. We would absolutely return and recommend you venture into this area and enjoy dinner.Special Features:
- YUMOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 8/24/2014Our brunch was awesome. We chose to order a bunch of the side/half order items so we could taste more of the things that caught our attention. The french toast was awesome with the blueberry compote. Tilth's bacon is the absolute best, and the 1/2 order of biscuits and gravy was amazing.Special Features:
- Happy BirthdayYordknsDined on 8/24/2014This was our first time at Tilth and we came because of a write up I saw for waffles with smoked chicken gravy. We arrived a little before 10:00 AM on Sunday, they opened the restaurant within 3 or 4 minutes of the advertised opening, and we were the first table seated. I ordered beverages for us and the they were out of the Pimms Cup so my wife substituted a mimosa to celebrate her birthday. I had the biscuits and gravy while my wife settled on the French Omelet. Both of our meals were delicious and struck the perfect balance between a lovely presentation and enough food to leave you satisfied. Not sure her side of potatoes was needed but we finished them. Gorgeous day and the outdoor seating made for a nice start to her birthday.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Almost 5 starsjtckDined on 8/22/2014In my world, everything has to be near perfect to get 5 stars. So 4 stars is a noteworthy restaurant for me. We had the 8 course tasting menu on a Friday night, and it was an amazing meal. Some courses were 5 star worthy: the chilled corn soup, the pasta, and the salmon were all stellar. The others were very good and full disclosure: we ate every bite. The service was very good as well -- my major complaint is that I had to ask for water 2 times. Tilth isn't a place I'll return to any old time, but when I am looking for fresh, inventive and well-crafted flavors, and money is no object, I'll be back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Foo-foo foodOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 8/20/2014The food was good-- perfectly cooked salmon and flavorful risotto-- but pricey. Two dinners from the a la carte menu, one glass of wine, one cocktail, one dessert ran $105. I could have treated nine friends to a delicious dinner at a neighborhood Thai restaurant for the same price. But if money is no object, go to the Herbfarm.
- Good, but troubling declineFoodFanDined on 8/17/2014Tilth has always been a bit inconsistent in our experience. Vegetarian/Vegan options are consistently well-conceived, but proteins are sometimes not prime quality and overcooked often enough that we no longer frequent the restaurant. We decided to stop in last weekend for the duck burgers, which is one thing that is always good. But service standards are slipping, and the cocktails rather weak. To us, these are often fundamental signs of a struggling restaurant, and it is a quick path to demise when your regulars can't remember why they used to come, and new customers will have a mediocre experience and no reason to return. A quick and relentless attention to former quality, great service and detail is needed before it's too late.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
