Both meals we had we're amazing. The crab cakes we're the star but the alaskan salmon was amazing. Drinks and desert we're equally spectacular. The service was not astounding but definitely better than expected for a restaurant with gratitude included. Our waitress was however very accommodat in of my food allergy. Amazing restaurant that we will definitely visit next time we are in town.

The portions were extremely small, low value to food level. I don't expect whopper sized meals from a upscale restaurant, but the ONE crab cake I ordered was about the size of a silver dollar which not much else to go with it. Unfortunately I was still hungry after my meal, and truthfully, I'm a lean man and don't eat a lot of food, but this is even a too small for me.

The food itself was tasty, but be prepared to spend a lot of money if you want enough to feel satiated.

For being the flagship of the Tom Douglas empire I was disappointed. Food was good but the service and atmosphere were not. I might go to another Tom Douglas restaurant but will not go back to Dahlia Lounge.

Excellent food. They changed the menu and unfortunately they don't need the duck hash anymore :( . Service, food, everything great. Tom Douglas is always a warranty. GF options!

Crab cakes were great. Halibut overcooked without much flavor. Appetizer mussels ok but overpowered by the bacon. Service prompt and attentive. Kind of touristy.

Our server was wonderful, kept track of the time for us, since we were all going to see Pearl Jam down at Safeco after dinner. Everybody really enjoyed the food and each others company. It was great to be able to converse at normal levels. The server, sorry I don't remember her name, made sure everyone had beverages and was very good with a few orders that were slightly off menu. She made us feel like very welcome guests.

What a delicious meal! I had the crab cakes yet again and started with the tomato peach salad....it was so good! That salad, I might return soon just for that! We had a great evening.

This was our first visit to Dahlia Lounge, as we were in Seattle on a vacation. We started off with some nice cocktails and then moved into some small plates, mains, dessert, and a nice bottle of Washington red wine to accompany it all. The food was all very creatively done and quite fresh. Service was good, with one minor complaint, which is they brought the salad course and the appetizers all at once, versus serially. We've learned to tell folks to course out the food and I think we mentioned it here as well. That said, it was a minor issue in an enjoyable evening. This is really good local fare in a nice setting, so check it out if you are in this part of downtown Seattle.

Great food!
Everything is very high quality.
Few dishes were amazing, most of them were on great side.
Sea food appetizers are pretty good - I recommend getting the large sampler (all of above option)

We had a family brunch to send my mother off on a cruise. The menu had just enough choices to make everyone happy. Food was delicious. Try the French Toast.....or just ask for a taste of the Woodinville barrel aged maple syrup. A number of our party have various food allergies which they were also able to accommodate.

This was one of our favorite places to eat in Seattle. This was one of several restaurants owned by the same company. In fact, they own (15) different & all very good restaurants in the Seattle area. All the way from: breakfast, bakery, pizza, and they also have a stand alone store that sells items from all of their restaurants. Next to one of their breakfast restaurants they have a cooking class you can sign up for.

While visiting Seattle for a wedding, my wife and I went to Dahlia Lounge on the recommendation of her daughter, a resident of the area. We could not have been more pleased with the experience. It's a quiet romantic place to take your loved one to enjoy a great meal. The service is spectacular. Our waiter was very helpful with just the right amount of conversation. But the main reason we were there was THE FOOD, and that was fantastic. Fresh and expertly prepared. The squash blossom tamales is the absolute best dish my wife or I have ever tasted! If you are in the area I highly recommend it.

Our wonderful waitress tipped us that her favorite brunch item, not on the printed menu, is a crab cake Benedict. We all ordered them, and were so glad. Food and drinks were exemplary, and the restaurant is attractive and rather quiet for the number of happy diners. What a treat!

Ate in the bar. Bartender was genuinely friendly and helpful. Suggested a seasonal salad (with pluots); the taste was amazing and the presentation beautiful. Wanted another little something so I ordered the roasted shishito peppers, which were also outstanding.

Took my nephew and his wife who were visiting from Ohio to lunch at DL. DIdn't want to scare them with anything too exotic, knew I could count on this place for good food. They were quite late, but our server was very understanding. Not a cheap lunch, but not outrageous, and delicious. Good drinks, too.

I was very excited to come to the Dahlia Lounge for our Anniversary. It is clearly not an Anniversary type atmosphere. We arrived and was greeted by a very nice waiter. We ordered a beverage and I bet within a 15-20 min period he asked if we were ready to order 6 times. When you spend this kind of money you want to enjoy your time. Finally we ordered an appetizer the DUNGENESS Crab. Maybe two bites per person. Not good. Then we ordered the beet salad which small but tasty. Then ordered the entrees. I am from a commercial fisherman family and ordered Fresh Halibut. It was so over cooked and dry but I didn’t send it back. My husband ordered squash blossom tamales and my husband said it was fine. I ordered wine with dinner which was fine. The French fries were better than my whole dinner. We had Coconut Cream Pie which did not disappoint. Anyway, I really wish I had a much better review since we traveled so far for this “special dinner”

Our family had a wonderful dining experience at the Dahlia Lounge. Our server was informative and provided excellent recommendations for our meal choices and beverage pairings. The service was almost as good as the food! All of our dishes were delicious and the portions were large. A good place for foodies visiting Seattle looking for a great food experience.
