While the food was outstanding, our favorite part of the night was our waiter James. He was extremely knowledgeable about the food and wine and had such a fun personality. We want to go back just to see him again!

The experience was fantastic. At the end of the dinner, they treated us for a vegetarian course since I had initially forgotten to mention I don’t eat red meat. Their service and attention was immaculate. Recommended and I’ll return again…

This was our second time visiting and the menu exceeded our expectations this time around as well! Really loved the variety of the ingredients and how everything coupled with the vegetables so harmoniously. It was such a lovely time-- hadn't been able to talk with friends in a long time in person so we were able to do that while also talking in depth about the food with each course. Every course left such a strong impression and the flavors and textures were very thoughtfully balanced. Servers were also very attentive while also being hands off. We appreciated how they observed from afar but didn't hover and let us eat in our own time. It was hot that day but inside was a very comfortable temperature and it didn't sound overwhelming or loud that we could chat at normal volume. Looking forward to what will be in store in the future, always a great experience!

Easily among the best meals we’ve ever had. Brilliant, creative, and endlessly inventive. Has a pleasantly relaxed ambience, surprisingly for a place of its caliber—almost cafe-like.

Food was creative and you can tell that the menu has been tastefully designed for a sophisticated palate, but the ingredients, ambiance and service fall short of the price tag. Overall I did not feel I got my money’s worth. Service was probably the biggest opportunity. They couldn’t keep our glasses full which seemed odd for a place that charges so much.

Look all the food tastes good, but for $125 for a tasting menu of 5 courses, I expect way more. Way way more.

1 oz of tuna
1.5 oz of salmon
3 agnolotti (0.5 oz of rabbit)
2-3 oz of beef

Seriously? My son and I went to McDonald’s afterwards. He and I went to Alturra a couple of months ago and for the same price had more courses, more substantive courses, and better service.

Oh, and $29 for a glass of wine from a bottle that retails for $47...really? that’s 309% markup. Crazy.

Do not recommend.

Great ingredients and some great cooking techniques for several dishes but that’s where it stopped. There wasn’t anything particularly yum/wow about many of the savory riches. The salmon skin had a great crust but the flesh was overcooked and undersalted. The rib steak was overcooked. The sweet pea sorbet with elderflower was really nice as was the desert (olive oil cake with mint ice cream). Wine pairings were very nice. For two people our bill came out to $450 after tax and service with only one wine pairing. I think there was about $200 to $250 worth of value for what it was. Background music was a bit loud. In terms of ambiance and details, there were some obvious details that were lacking. For example, the cutlery was high school cafeteria quality, which is not what you’d expect when you’re paying $200 or more per person for a night out. I’d go back again at ~$100/person but not at $200 plus. Since the wine pairings were solid, I would recommend stopping by and buying them by the bottle from their “store” section at the front of the house.

Works of art on the plate with outstanding wines and friendly service. Several dishes were “fastastic” some were very good, dessert was extraordinary. Pricey splurge for a special occasion.

This was an amazing experience! The staff is top notch and know how to take care of guests. Each course was flavorful, balanced, and delicious. The spacing was done so you were never rushed and instead felt like a meal among friends. The care and concern for guest safety was obvious and provided great confidence. My wife loved the short rib while I loved the foie gras but both were tremendous! Finally the dessert was the best I have had. Not too sweet, the use of apples provided a wonderful splash among the rhubarb and almond. We can’t wait to come back again!

I thought the five course tasting menu was terrific. I live four blocks away and have always wanted to dine at Art of the Table but could never afford it. Out of the five courses (vegetarian menu), four were five-star, couldn't be beat- beautifully presented, with a mixture of tastes that was a thrilling gustatorial experience. The amuse bouche- *, the dessert *- But the 4th course- some kind of vegetarian tamale with mushrooms?- looked fine but taste somewhere around a 2.5 or 3.... I left most of it on my plate (and the servings are not huge.) It always gets me- How can a classy restaurant like Art of the Table have 4 courses plus and have 85 to 90 percent be spectacular, and then one dish that is really unacceptable for a fine restaurant. I hope to go again and have all five courses be terrific. I HIGHLY recommend this restaurant. next time, I would send the dish at fault back to the kitchen and ask for something else.

It was my first time dining at The Art of the Table, and it will not be my last. The food was delectable. The service was phenomenal. Two out of the three in our party opted for the wine pairings, with each pair tasting like soulmates— highly recommend! It was my 30th birthday and my family had come from out of town to see me, so we had a lot to talk about. The service wait patiently as we took some time to finish. It felt kind and genuine, and I did not feel rushed. I had called ahead of time to let them know I was pescatarian, and they assured me they could create dishes suited to my diet. They did. And I am so happy I had called ahead of time to ask, as I was not disappointed by any means. I’ve told any one who’s asked (and those who have not) that they ~*must*~ experience your restaurant’s exquisite food and service. 10/10. Thank you!

Every single meal we have had at Art of the Table has been outstanding. The service is amazing, the food is absolutely divine and well curated and the ambiance is cozy yet chic. We have been coming to Art of the Table since 2015 and have never been disappointed in the take out or the in dining experience. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would!

AOTT is our #1 favorite special restaurant in Seattle. We have never had anything less than an outstanding experience and a perfectly remarkable and memorable meal. Chef Dustin is a magician with ingredients. We love that we are given a printed menu of what is included in each course. We are already thinking about our next visit....Russ and Kim Addy

We did not choose the wine pairing; the selection of glasses available was slim and the two I tried were so crappy it detracted from an otherwise quaint tasting menu. I would describe the only red as water with red food coloring. The cocktail I chose to start was likewise a detriment to the experience.

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!!!!!

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!

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!
