Art of the Table
We went for the five course tasting menu with wine pairing. Every single dish was delicious and impeccably presented. For the fine dining experience that it is, the menu price was very reasonable. Our only quibble was the fairly quotidian location (right on Stone Way Avenue), though this was mostly mitigated by the fashionable, newly done interiors. Art of the Table has immediately gone to my second-favorite fine dining experience in Seattle (after Canlis)!
I wasn't aware that a fixed menu should have been chosen with 7 or 5 courses... and a hefty price ticket, although there was no price indication whatsoever. Food was quite good, but too expensive.
Outstanding restaurant!! One of the best from every angle !!
The service and food were amazing! This was my first time meeting my vendor and the whole dining experience made it easier for me to get to know my vendor because of all the great food and wine we got to talk about and try together.
Service was excellent I was disappointed in the price value for the dishes that were served. Some of the courses the plates were too large for the dish. Unfortunately the taste was average on some of the dishes. We were prepared to pay the high price for the pre fixed menu but left very underwhelmed and disappointed in the amount we paid for what we ate
Amazing service, amazing food, a chef’s dream restaurant. The staff made us feel extra special for our anniversary and sent us out complimentary Prosecco. We upgraded our prefixed to enjoy the caviar. Everything was to die for!
Yes, it's pricey. But it is indeed, art. Our food was exquisite, and so very beautiful. Each piece expression not only of artistic talent and color with food, but culinary expertise. Do yourself a favor and experience it. You will be happy you did.
Really an excellent meal, but a bit overpriced
Service and food were excellent. Recommend for special occasions.
Our dinner was in part a gift from a client, as we normally don't splurge on a place like this.
Exemplary food, but I will say that there were too many courses. Yes, a first world problem I know...
It would be nice if one could order ala carte, but am aware that they may not be what the owners/chefs are interested in doing.
I placed a reservation a few weeks in advance for a special celebration dinner and was pleasantly surprised by the great service throughout the whole process. I received a phone call a week or so before the reservation to ask if anyone in the party had any food allergies (which no one had, but it was great that they would accommodate). Skip forward to the dinner, and the service and the food were amazing! We all had the seven course tasting menu and were no disappointed. I would highly recommend this to any group looking for a place to celebrate a truly special occasion.
Do not waste 200$ per person for the tasting menu
We liked the restaurant. The food is great. We had the seven course tasting menu. The service was perfect and we liked the fact that the noise level was low.
Simply the best food in Seattle! We literally flew in just for this dining experience.
Totally wonderful, unexpected and outstanding!
Anniversary and birthday celebration went super well with the 7 course chef tasting menu. Got to try some first time dishes of the night and loved the duck breast dish the most.
Very creative and each dish is different from the next!
It was all very very good. I can’t gush over the whole experience. We’ve visited 1,2, and 3 star restaurants in NYC and in Europe that deliver tastings for less money. I think for about $280 each we expected a bit more.
Food and service were amazing!
Art of the Table is pricey and if you’re not a fan of tasting menus you can dine in the bar but we tried the 5 course menu without the wine pairing. We enjoyed every morsel. Impeccable service. So fun to sit at the counter and watch everything being prepared and plated.
We had great food, but our main server was very blah. He was not engaging or enjoyable. Unfortunately, this can greatly affect the overall dining experience, and it did.
This place is really very good indeed. It's not cheap, but it's a special experience. Thank you.
It was a magical experience from start to finish. The service was outstanding, the food was out of this world (they call it a 7-course meal and give you 12 total dishes!), and the drinks were phenomenal. This is my new favorite restaurant!
It was a lovely experience
Delicious, inspired food and a beautiful restaurant with impeccable service. The price tag is appropriate. However, I wouldn't recommend it at this time- while still giving it five stars. Though the price is appropriate when spending $500 on a meal for two, enjoying the wine is a must. The wine pairing was not in any way comparable to the food. Instead of selecting amazing wines, the selection was unique and unfortunately fell flat. What works for this restaurant is that its unique food is extraordinary. When/if that same standard is applied to the wine pairing, it would be a natural first choice for a return experience. Without extraordinary wine, the food falls short of its potential. I'm not a wine snob. The wine selection was just not good, let alone extraordinary.
Great for a celebration.
We enjoyed the great food and service for three hours!
You can choose 7 courses or 5 courses. I chose 7 courses, but I wish I could have chosen 5 courses.
Perfectly curated menu. Superior service. Excellent interaction with the chefs while dining at the chefs table. The most amazing experience I’ve ever had.
I could sum up AOTT in one phrase: trying too hard. From the three (3!?) amuse bouche plates, to the weird wine choices, to the overly elaborate dishes, the entire experience was one of a restaurant that wanted desperately to be great but failed at every turn.
The plates that deserved three or four tastes had six or eight. The wines weren’t just unique but downright weird, sherry mid-meal wasn’t just a “bold choice” it was terrible. The entire meal was like that.
And the service. Ouch. The waiter assured us the wine pairings were “about 2 glasses worth”. It was seven. The first courses came too fast, before the previous was done. Then it was agony, we waited 20mins between courses once, many times 10-15mins with an empty table. The meal took three agonizing hours.
In sum, this place needs to step back and breath deeply. There is talent, don’t try so hard.
Excellent service & food - staff was knowledgeable about all of the dishes & the execution by the kitchen was first class.
The restaurant seating area offers a choice of 5 or 7 course fixed price menus. We had the 7 course meal and purchased the wine pairing as well. When splurging on a meal in this price point, you want to be wowed - and we were "wow-squared". It was an phenomenal meal. Each course was extraordinary. The food was delicious, the ingredients were often unusual, the flavors were 'to die for' - just a culinary experience unlike we have had before in Seattle. Can't recommend it highly enough; though be sure to be prepared for the price point. Worth ever bit of it.
Overall food was good, service was great. Not worth the price tag
We went to Art of the Table on our anniversary and had an incredible experience. The food was out of this world and the service was exceptional. It was a slow night so it was a bit quiet, but we can't wait to go back when the energy is high. The staff did a great job making our dining experience special. I would highly recommend AOT. Thank you for a great night!
I have been there 2 times and both experiences were excellent. The service is superb and the ingredients are always fresh. They will cater to any food restrictions you have.
Amazing service from Taylor and Lily made the dinner even more special!
The chillest restaurant crew I have ever seen. Everyone was friendly and took time to explain things, discuss the food and it's preparation. And the food was art!
This was a tremendous evening.
I wss very excited for this dinner and I have to say I was disappointed.
Overpriced for the quality.
Service was not fantastic.
Food had great pieces, but also pieces I wouldn't eat again.
Excellent food which we are still raving about, wonderful receptionist and staff! Our only issue was our main server. The restaurant was not too busy and we were only three people in our table. Before we began our orders. I politely asked if he could take a photo before the table became cluttered and he said he wanted to get our orders in, fine we said. When he came back, I asked again and he put it off twice. I don’t know what that was about! Finally, I asked the receptionist and she graciously accommodated us. He seemed rushed but did answer our questions, and explained the courses up to a point, but would walk off while talking, his voice trailing off. He was polite to a point but seemed to be put off or indifferent with us. Maybe he was bored with his job? I don’t mean to single him out but it did affect our overall experience since we are talking about him right now. He did come back with answers when we had questions about the wine and answered our questions regarding the courses. When you do a tasting, there is a rapport that you establish with your server in connection with the meal. It is part of the overall experience. It must have been an off night for him or something. He would be an excellent waiter if he just engaged his customers a little more and had a little joy in his step like the rest of your staff. That would have made the whole experience worthwhile and an unforgettable one!!!
Everything was amazing, the food was exceptional and I loved every mouthful. The staff are friendly and happy and just overall was a great experience.
Met a lifelong friend here for dinner on his suggestion. Service was impeccable and knowledgeable about everything. Most of the courses were slam dunks and all were adventurous. Highly recommended.
Very special experience. Food was exquisite. Spacing between courses was perfect. All around an outstanding meal.
