                                                            Everything was delicious. The kitchen was very slow though.

                                                            Beautiful space. Late reservation, so it was super quiet. Very friendly greeting at the door, also on the part of the bartender (I sat at the bar). Wine was delightful, oysters sublime, beet salad-my favorite, and larger than I expected. Am not sure what all the hype about the tomato soup is about, however. Famous biscuits should be served all day. I wanted to try them with the soup.

                                                            Dahlia Lounge is one of my 2 favorite restaurants in Seattle. In 10 years of dining here--often to celebrate very special occassions--I have not had a bad meal. Actually, it just occurred to me that I've never had a "bad" experience here--a difficult or disappointing server, for example. I can't recommend it too highly.

                                                            Crab cakes and green salad was to die for! The gnocchi was outstanding as well. Wasn't thrilled with the red wine by the glass.

                                                            Dahlia Lounge has been one of my favorite places to dine for over 20 years. The experience is perfection, from start to finish. Best Manhattans in the city, beautiful oysters, a perfect steak and the grilled bread salad is divine. Finally, their coconut cream pie is the ONLY coconut cream pie I will eat. 10 out of 10 stars!

                                                            Had a great valentine’s dinner. Great service, food, and ambiance for a very reasonable price. Coconut cream pie was amazing/dangerous. Highly recommended.

Food was absolute bomb! oysters and the toast appetizer were great. 8oz skirt steak was okay.. but the duck was really really really really good. Next time, I'm gonna get the entire coconut pie instead of one piece!

We ordered everything on that menu plus a side of their fabulous fries from the main menu. Everything was delicious - especially enjoyed the king crab appetizer!!

                                                            Love Tom Douglas's restaurants and Dahlia Lounge was his first one so it's extra special, and the hot donuts are incredibly delicious. Their bakery is right next door so everything is super fresh. The food was very tasty and the portion sizes were just right. We went for lunch on February 14th and as it turned out, it was the last lunch they are serving and they will only be open for dinner now. But there is also Lola's across the street (another Tom Douglas restaurant).

                                                            Wonderful, perfectly prepared food, superb service. Our waiter even thought to ask the chef if the dessert was pregnancy safe (it had bourbon in the cream) and she remade the dish for us without us having to give it a second thought. Highly recommend a visit to this restaurant.

                                                            The service was outstanding! The food is always good but we felt extra taken care of this dinner.

                                                            Remains an All time Favorite -- I have not been to Dahlia Lounge in a couple of years but when a friend suggested it for a birthday dinner, I walked in wondering why it had been so long. The ambiance has such a warm, welcoming vibe. You can have a conversation easily because the restaurant volume is perfect. AND THE FOOD -- it continues to excite! Smoked avocado salad, the bread...We split a lot of different delicious dishes, including the duck. The portion was so big I thought they had accidentally given us two. Waitstaff were attentive and gracious. It won't be long until we visit again.

                                                            We have eaten at the Dahlia Lounge for years, shared many life-events, birthdays, anniversaries and graduations. I am very sad to share that the quality of the food has drastically declined. Based on the 2 meals I had with my dining partner, I doubt we'd go back. My cod with quinoa and beet slaw so so salty I couldn't anything but the fish. Typically the chefs at Dahlia Lounge artfully combine flavors however, I all could taste was salt. My dining partner's crab cakes will up to usual standards but the potatoes accompanying were lack-luster and uninspired. Perhaps Tom Douglas needs to check in with his staff at this site and actually TASTE the menu options they are serving. I should note - as usual the wait staff was very professional was great, too bad they have to serve such disappointing foods.

                                                            High prices for breakfast, but the meal and the service was exceptional, so its hard to complain about the cost. Its a Tom Douglas restaurant, so we expected excellent. I'm not sure why the level of customer service cannot be like this everywhere, but this was a gold standard: friendly, non-intrusive, quick, precise, and attentive. FYI: this is one of his restaurants that has dropped tipping, so expect a 20% "service charge in lieu of tips" on your bill. I, for one, like it.
