We enjoyed seeing all of Chihuly’s collections as well enjoying a delicious lunch. Our salad and soup were delicious as were the specials we ordered. I would recommend this restaurant after enjoying the Chihuly Glass Museum.

Every dish has a special touch so whatever your tastebuds might be accustomed to, a new flavor awaits. The aioli on the crab cakes was a delicious surprise and the chicken and mushroom ragout with polenta was tops. Great fun to check inspect other tables (unoccupied) embedded with Dale Chihuly's personal collections. Recommend they advise diners that an order of beignets includes five pieces which is a lot for two people to share since it includes fresh fruit.

Drinks and food really good. Waiter was exceptional, funny and attentive when needed. Only negative was unfriendly hostess who barely spoke and couldn't be bothered to crack a smile.

This is a beautiful place to have a leisure lunch. The food was excellent (and pretty large portion!) and the service was great!

We've eaten at Collections a number of times the past few years. This is the first time the food did not measure up to past experiences.

Everything was first, service, ambiance and people watching! All amazing! The beignets were out of this world!

Collections Cafe is a quirky gem in the Seattle Center. Embedded with Dale Chihuly's collections obsessions, there is a lot to look at and spark conversation. The food is very good and the menu changes at a reasonable pace. It's great for a business lunch or a bite before attending one of the local cultural venues.

Our waiter was terrific. He was fast, efficient, and didn’t disturb us too much. Also it was really nice when he brought a birthday dessert to the table. Great surprise for our birthday girl!! Thank you. Only one tiny complaint, a bit noisy — lots of hard surfaces.

The hostesses were welcoming and got us in early. Our server was wonderful - very friendly, attentive and helpful. Food was good and enjoyed by all.

It would be nice to have some glasses of wine priced closer to $7-9 in the afternoon. Also very cold near the door when it opens but hard to do anything about that.

Overall all love the cafe. It's unique and fun and really appreciate being able to make a res.

Excellent location for Seattle. Shakespeare performances... Staff is exceptional. Food is tasty and imaginative. Environment is interesting and not too noisy. The wall of windows overlooking pedestrian walkway provides great people watching. Love this restaurant!

Not much of an option for vegans - which was a surprise in Seattle. They had a delicious vegan soup - but then delivered with sour cream in it.

I love going to the Collections Cafe, which is part of the Chihuly Glass Museum. The Cafe displays various collections from Dale Chihuly’s childhood, all presented in creative fashion. The food is always tasty, and if you haven’t been through the museum and gardens you’re missing one of the truly special highlights of Seattle.

Went to lunch here the day after Christmas; they were serving brunch. Had absolutely FABULOUS Crab Eggs Benedict! One of the best things I’ve ever eaten. Service was good; only negative was that the food took 20 minutes to be delivered.

My husband and I made reservations to eat here because we planned to see the Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibit. The food was delicious and the service was good. The hot buttered rum was delicious! Be sure to check out the different collections located within the tables. Be careful if you sit at a table next to the window. People walk along the adjacent sidewalk and some demonstrate rude/gross behaviors. I was so disgusted I almost could not eat my lunch. Of course, this not the fault of the restaurant so perhaps you want to choose a table away from the windows if you have a weak stomach.

We went for Saturday lunch. Restaurant wasn't crowded, but service was extremely slow.

I hadn't seen the recently remodeled Café until this visit and it's nice! A bit more open and breezy feeling. The wait staff was very attentive to us and well informed about the menu selections. Food arrived in a timely fashion and my client and I were able to chat with little distraction. Nice seafood louis for me and burger for my guest. The burger - well, the bun, kind of crumbled, so he ate it as a deconstructed burger, with knife and fork! This is a lovely venue on the Seattle Center campus. Thank you!

Brunch at Collections was a hit for the birthday girl! We all had the delicious vegetable scramble and shared a biegnets & friit platter. Service was outstanding - professional, friendly and attentive. No wonder this is a favorite spot for Girls' lunches and pre-theater meals.

Good food, constantly changing menu, the proximity to all the venues in Seattle Center cannot be beat. Expensive, but the location explains it, I think. Recently, I have been dining in the glassed in area. Previously, I was afraid it would be too cold and austere, but no! It is now my favorite part of the restaurant. It is warm, inviting, and I love all the plants and the views of people passing by.
