The service was great the food was above average but less than the price I paid. I don’t understand the obsession with fennel now a days because it was in everything. Also, an old fashion with half the glass ice and strong taste of cinnamon is NOT an old fashion. Overall above average but over valued. Solid ambiance, excellent accommodating service.

The dinner was outstanding. We chose to not make any choices and ordered the pairings with the dinner. We were sat promptly and we were attended to very well. You definitely get what you pay for here. The smoked muscles were AMAZING!!!!!
We will absolutely be back.

Russell was our server and he was superb. Two of the ingredients used were things that I avoid because I generally can't stand them, but I ate every bite of both dishes. That's the highest compliment that I can give a chef! I visited while they were at 25% capacity. I definitely felt that they were taking better precautions than other places that I visited in Seattle, during the same week. The food and service were top notch. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Wow!!! What an amazing dining experience. I took my wife out for a date, and we did the wine pairing which was great. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about every dish and wine selection. The ambiance was very quiet and intimate... but best of all... The food! Everything we had was amazing.

Food and overall experience was amazing. The meal was exquisitely executed and every course was perfect. My only complaint would be that the wine pairings (while also wisely chosen) were not explained with any level of knowledge.

Will absolutely be coming back.

Went for Seattle Restaurant Week and I thought it was well worth the price and value of the food. Service was top notch and super helpful. The restaurant was setup very well for post-COVID restrictions and guidelines. I think the food was delicious except that my rice (with rockfish) was cold and the guac and chips were average; however, everything else was great! Even the wine which was only $36/bottle!

The food at Art of the Table is hands down the best in Seattle. It can compete with any place in LA, SF or NYC.

The hostess informed us that we must have our mask on even if we are sitting at our table if we aren’t eating or drinking. This made conversation awkward. They informed us before we even got to look at the menu that we have the table until 6-6:30. They got our order wrong. Their churros was brown on the outside and dough on the inside which means oil was too hot. Overall, would not recommend. Over hyped. Terrible dining experience.

What a lovely spot! The food was so creative and I can't wait to go back and try the different menus. Great to find a spot in Seattle where parking is not a huge hassle. Cocktail (Oaxacan Old Fashioned) was yummy. I think it was all super creative and I'm glad to try so many cool things.

I brought a work colleague here after a long work day, and no, it wasn't a business dinner. I wanted to 'show off' Seattle to someone that lives in NYC and has experienced great cuisine all over the world. Long ago I had been to the original Art of the Table - the one just a few blocks from the current one - and it was a cool experience. I'd not been to the new location and didn't really know what to expect. The restaurant is beautiful and welcoming. There is no loud music making conversation difficult. The bar seating is great if you want to watch food preparation, and I would recommend it. The menu is interesting, and has a choice of 7-course fixed price or a la carte. The a la carte menu shares some dishes and the fix prix menu, but not all. They can accommodate vegans and, given their kitchen talents, probably any food restrictions. We both chose the fix prix menu with the wine pairing, so that is just over two hundred per person, before tip and tax. I believe they brought us three amuse bouches. One was an oyster, and I am not a fan of oysters. It wasn't bad. In fact, nothing we were served was bad. However, very little that we had was truly great...in fact, I think it was an amuse bouche that really stood out. The dishes were all beautiful, colorful, extremely well described to us, and properly cooked. The problem is that most of them were good, and the wine pairings were good, but they just were not worth the overall cost of the meal. For example, I had many meals at Rovers over the years, so very similar price and number of courses. Rovers never disappointed, and I always felt that I got my money's worth. This was not the case at AoTT. In my opinion (as a foodie and wine collector) the meal should be $25 less and the wine pairings should be $20-25 less. They are not serving expensive wines, and the pours are rather frugal. The tip was added on for me without my input. I felt disappointed by the total when the bill came, not 'yep! worth every penny!'

Wow!! What a wonderful culinary experience we had recently at Art of the Table! I was visiting my daughter and her boyfriend. They had heard about this restaurant and wanted to try it. We opted to go with the "small plates" option instead of the tasting menu. All of the items ordered were presented beautifully and tasted truly amazing. Start to finish, every dish was delicious and artfully prepared/presented. Our server, LeeAnn, was very well versed in the menu options and was a delight! We really enjoyed ourselves and look forward to visiting again soon. Don't hesitate to add this restaurant to the list of favorites in Fremont area!!!

Monday night was very quiet, which can be a plus! Shared a variety of great dishes among three adults. This is one of my favorite "special occasion" restaurants in Seattle. Creative and tasty food and great service. Can't say what it is like when its busy, but it was perfect.

Overall underwhelmed for the price. We had high expectations and it really fell flat.

Scallops were great but the paired it with orange slices with the seeds still in them and celery that was fermented which overpowered the scallops. It shocked the pallet.

The Wagyu beef was tough and when we told by the waiter that it was a "hybrid" Wagyu beef. We know our beef and it was overcooked. The waiter didn't suggest removing the steak and correcting the issue.

Overall an OK dinner, but $600 for 3 people, one who didn't drink, and 20% gratuity on top of alcohol was a little crazy.

I would skip this restaurant. It was very overpriced for what we received. Sorry!!!

$125 a plate 7 “course” dinner. Courses were more like bites. Service was painfully slow and by the end of our 3-1/2 hr dinner my exhaustion overwhelmed my palate. Gratuity was included as well so 2 meals and 3 drinks ended up costing about $400. Not worth it.

This was the worst tasting, tasting menu that I've ever had. The food was either too salty or had way too much lemon. It was worth a try, but I probably won't ever go back.

This was our second time at Art of the Table and will be back for sure. Amazing menu and the service was incomparable. James, our server, was simply outstanding and such a knowledgeable sommelier as well. One of the great aspects of this restaurant is that the tables are wide and so there is plenty of space for a large party to stretch out. Likewise, the tables are ideally distanced from one another to give you privacy and help keep the noise to a minimum. Again, an amazing experience and one that we will be back to enjoy.

Art of the Table is by far the best restaurant in Seattle. When we are trying to decide where to eat out, we usually default to AOTT because we have not been able to find better. Local ingredients and creative recipes. They also have a great wine pairing. Most restaurants around Seattle default to a "local-wine-only" pairing, but AOTT finds the best wine from around the world to pair with the dish. Excellent.

Being from California we expected to have a 7 course meal that was exactly what we paid for a “Tasting Menu”. Although service was great, the food wasn’t. From our entire meal we only had a truffle pasta which we upgraded to that was decent. The order our food was served did not match. The first three items before our tasting began we’re good. Once are tasting began it nose dived completely. In tastings we’ve experienced prior to here such as Vespa, Scratch and others, your dishes are served after one is finished. There was several occasions were the dishes were doubled up in our table taking away from the experience of a tasting menu. Cocktails are good the food and order of tasting needs work. Definitely not worth the price if you understand what a tasting menu is suppose to be like. We wish this restaurant the best and hope that this review helps them increase there quality.

Wonderful service and ambience and great food with gorgeous plating - but beware hidden fees and “upgrades” disguised as parallel options. An interesting - but not necessarily “good value” - experience, as we paid 25% or so more than what our on-menu numbers for food, drinks and gratuity suggested we should.
