For over a decade, Art of the Table has been the restaurant in Seattle to celebrate food and those who dedicate their lives to raising, growing, foraging and catching our produce in the Pacific Northwest. Through our intimate dining room, our 10 seat chefs counter overlooking the kitchen, and our close relationship with local farmers and artisans. The menu at Art of the Table, crafted by chef Dustin Ronspies, changes daily to reflect a full range of seasonal, local produce, with all items made from scratch. Our tasting menus are the best expression of what we do. Along with our tasting menus, we offer a la carte dining option in the bar and lounge.

Art of the Table is more an experience than a place to eat. Sitting at the counter, one watches master chefs prepare intricate dishes, and then gets to eat them! You'll leave feeling entertained, satiated, and you'll run through the flavors in your mind for days!

Great food, outstanding service. We had not been to AOTT since it moved from the original location over a year ago. Glad to see the fun and food are up to the same standards. In addition to the 5 courses (you can also choose a 7 course or 3 course) all kinds of little "inbetweens" come, making for a thoughtful, tasty and quite filling meal.

We had the 7-course chef's tasting menu. The tasting menu started with 3 amuse-bouche, and then the 7 seasonal course. Food has fantastic flavor pairings and creativity. Service is also very wonderful.

The food is good but not great. There are many other places where the food is as tasty or better and more interesting. For the amount of money, I expected to be wowed and definitely was not. Oddly older crowd for the location.

For the price you are better spent doing the tasting menu at Canlis. It seems the menu is the same week after week as the same complaints people posted weeks ago we agree with. And the 20% surcharge on top of a already inflated menu gives you insult to injury when you get the check.

After I spent 20 minutes trying park my sedan in a garage that had nothing but compact parking, I had the dubious honor of sitting in a restaurant where it was very cold, and the tasting menu I spent 373.00 on left me so hungry I went out and ate again. You remember those cliched hoity-toity restaurants where your food is so tiny it looks like a small island in an ocean of round ceramic....this is one of those places. And it wouldn’t bother me as much If the food was good, but it wasn’t, I got a piece of duck for instance that was basically raw, not cool. Not going back. Super disappointed

Amazing experience, I would definitely go back. Ive been to many high priced restaurants with a tasting menu and often leave disappointed (even when Im not paying). This was the opposite, I wanted to tip them more than the 20% that was added to the bill.

Nice ambiance, servers were slow and inattentive. Food was pretty good but timing of plates was poor. Certainly overpriced for the experience and we didn’t appreciate a fixed 20% tip for mediocre service.

We had a fabulous time at Art of the Table- we went for my husbands birthday with four of our friends. We did the 5- course tasting menu and each course was perfectly presented and tasty. Everyone enjoyed themselves and the meal was spaced out so nicely. A couple people had cocktails as well- very creative and yummy as well! Definitely a splurge but worth it. :) We will be back!

I was disappointed to find that the website info was not aligned with what they actually had for menu and prices. Additionally, they ran out of their main course, and served us an alternative which wasn't as expected. I've been here in the past when it was smaller and more intimate. It has lost its uniqueness and personalized touch that it once had. Now it's like every other restaurant out there. The food was nice, but not what it once was. Happy for the owners success, but what once made it special is gone.

Certainly hits the bar for any foodie. Each course contained the sort of loving detail (e.g. a few slices of pickled kumquat) that set great chefs apart from good ones. The atmosphere seems a bit ordinary given the extraordinary plates but, otherwise, it's hard to find room for improvement. We'll be back.

We went to Art of the Table for our anniversary and had a lovely evening. It's one of the best restaurants in Seattle. We decided to go with the 7 course chef's choice menu, which is a blind menu. Each course was an adventurous surprise and it was delicious! If you are a foody this is a must do! Wine pairings were perfect. If you have dietary restrictions they can accommodate. We cant recommend this enough for a special occasion.

The food and the service were phenomenal. The duck was cooked to perfection, and the arctic char ceviche was delicious. Our server had a great knowledge about the wine that was paired with our dishes. The meal was a bit pricey but well worth it.

Our third visit to the new location. We have never been disappointed and Friday night was no exception. We always sit at the chef’s counter. Dustin and his team serve perfection with every course without being pretentious. This visit we had the 7-course - the lamb crepenette was the BEST lamb preparation ever. We say this every time...can’t wait to go back!

They were very accommodating with one member of the party who had an allium allergy. They called the day before about food problems and then were able to work around a specific food sensitivity. Not sure what it will be like when they get rid of the ala carte menu next month but the food, service and ambience were terrific.

Still good meal with small plates to share but the last 2 main dishes (entrees) - artic char and pork belly were a bit too heavy and overdone. It seemed that the those 2 dishes were not up to par as the rest of the meal.

We were late 30 mins for a reservation I made several weeks ago and we were very apologetic! We called earlier and informed the hostess that we were running late and she said it was “Okay”. Our reservations were for the bar table overlooking the chefs doing their magic but when we got there the hostess took a look at us, frowned and said “Hmmmm” I think you are too late for the reservation at the bar and took us to a dark and very isolated southern corner of the restaurant. It was also unfortunate that she sat us right next to a very, very loud and intoxicated group. Now, please keep in mind this is Art of Table and it was a romantic early Valentine’s dinner. I am typically shy but felt wronged and complained only about the noise. The same hostess informed me that she too noticed the loud group ( but still sat us next to them) and promised they will most likely leave soon. By now my date and I felt we were being punished by the hostess. Now, please also keep in my that when we walked into the restaurant there were both seats at the bar and several tables in the main part of the restaurant.
To balance this part of the experience we both had a very nice meal service and the food was amazing.

I have dined at Art several times in the past however this was my first visit to the new location. Previously I always left with a favorable impression. However this time I left disappointed with my spouse commenting to me "well I don't need to come back here anytime soon". Several issues; First Parking; it is great that that Art now offers off street parking. However unless you drive a smart car you won't want to park your vehicle in the micro sized spaces. I opted to park in the street to avoid dings and scrapes. I don't drive an enormous vehicle either, Tesla Model S. Pacing; Art advises to allow 2.5 - 3 hours for the tasting menu so that was our expectation. However the rapid arrival of dishes and zealous clearing by the servers made us feel rushed. At one point one of us left to go to the restroom and the server insisted in setting down the plates even though one of the party was missing. The server then loitered for a bit because they wanted to describe the meal, until it got too awkward so they left and returned later. This is a huge faux pas IMO, a server should never deliver food if the diners are not all present. We felt like we were being rushed so we deliberately slowed our eating to provide more time between courses. It felt like we were being rushed, I don't think this was the case but the food arrival rate was too aggressive. It would have been nice if the server had inquired about course pacing. The new location while nice architecturally amplifies that noise level in the restaurant making it difficult to hold a conversation. The background music level was loud enough that it was not really in the background and was possibly causing diners to talk more loudly further exacerbating the noise in the restaurant. I know that some find loud dining experiences pleasurable and restaurants want to be rated energetic or vibrant. Example Open Table's own noise rating system lists energetic for the most noise, really? energetic why not unpleasant or painful
