Awesome food and ambiance
Disappointed - service was okay but not great. First ordered bread with condiments.... okay, but for $12 would have preferred to just have some bread like most restaurants. My halibut was good, but not great. And two table mates had the salmon and said not great. Oh yea - and we also ordered the roasted cauliflower with Parmesan which was totally dried out. The best things about our meals were the donuts and coconut cream pie for dessert. Probably won’t be coming back.
The Dahlia Lounge is known in the Seattle area as the best or one of the best restaurants overall. It's reputation is well deserved! The food was delicious and very well prepared. The servers were very friendly and helped answer our questions in a competent and gracious manner. The whole experience made us both very happy. It is a wonderful place to celebrate an anniversary as we were but would be excellent for many other occasions as well. I would heartily recommend it for anyone who wants a fine dining experience. As most people know, it is definitely on the expensive side, but well worth the expense and worth saving for to celebrate important events. I also like the 20% mandatory gratuity policy which goes to the wait staff and other restaurant workers. This takes the pressure off the wait staff who are already excellent.
Dahlia Lounge is evolving into a good, safe, but expensive place to take out-of-town guests and relatives. The food is good, but has devolved into the unimaginative -- it used to be more interesting. The service has become kind-of strange since Tom Douglas switched over to a 20% fixed service fee instead of tips -- directing more of that money away from the female servers and towards the male kitchen. Teens-to-twenties still love the donuts, and the coconut cream pie.
We have loved Dahlia Lounge for many years! It is superlative in every way! Highly recommend it! Love the staff… Love the food…Can’t say enough good things about Dahlia Lounge!!! Welove it!
Took out of town friends for an authentic Seattle dinner. Great food and ambience. Highly recommend.
Stay for the dessert, and dinner was fantastic as well
One of my hisbands favorite restaurants because of the duck and coconut pie! Waitress Susie was fun!!
What a lovely spot for a celebration! From the moment we came into the room, the service was excellent (Jordan, our waiter was fantastic!) and the food was divine. You MUST try the coconut cream pie...
This was my 3rd trip to Dahlia. Food was great but left hungry. Portions this time seemed a bit smaller than I remeber. Would go again as the food is awesome, but yet quite pricey.
We went for our anniversary and were pleased that by telling them in advance we were treated to a drink. The service was friendly and professional, a nice combination. The food was far better than average but the duck was a bit dry. The portions are great for sharing. The feeling is of sophistication mixed with comfort. We were not rushed.
Great meal! Highly recommend.
Lovely environment with creative food and kind service
Simply put, there are not better options in town for Tomato Soup and a Grilled Cheese sandwich. I understand the nuance of these words. But they are true. Honestly, the entire menu cannot be beat. Even the seasonal chicken salad with peaches was outstanding. Like any Tom Douglas restaurant, we highly recommend Dahlia Lounge!!
Really appreciated Dahlia’s quality in every dish we ordered. And our server was superb!
We appreciated being able to have conversations during the meal. The noise level at most restaurants is unacceptable.
Excellent food, great cocktails, nice wine list and perfect service. A lovely date night find!
Dahlia seems quite dated. Food was good, but not interesting. There are many more affordable places with great food. Ambiance hasn’t changed in the last 17 years i’ve Been going there.
Great food, great service. Only the freshest ingredients
Portion sizes ultra small apps and bevies
Fish entree enjoyable
Service - low morale - indifferent - apathetic
As always, Dahlia was superb, the Asian salad was just right and the Beechers grilled cheeze sandwich was very good, expecially with an extra slice of ham, hard to beat this lunch. They even remembered our spot in the back away from the noise, this place has been consistendly great ever since we started going here 15 plus years ago....
I ate at Dahlia Lounge many years ago, and enjoyed the meal and service. I was excited to bring a coworker during our visit to Seattle for a conference. The servers made no effort to smile. The salads were dropped off without eye contact. We waited 30 minutes for our food, and then the wrong meal was brought to our table. We waited another 20 minutes. After that the server was more congenial. We should have been offered a discount or an appetizer or a dessert, but they didn’t offer anything. I was embarrassed that I brought my coworker to Dahlia Lounge. The food was good, but not worth the price. I don’t know if our experience was because we made our reservation through OpenTable. They automatically add a 20% service charge instead of taking tips, so maybe they think good customer service isn’t required. I will never go back.
Quiet enjoyable meal. Small menu but good service and good quality food.
I was very disappointed in this restaurant. Although the 3 others in our group said their entrees were very good, my fish was dry and overcooked. We waited over an hour between the time we ordered and when we received our entrees, and the restaurant was not full. We did not have a lot of cocktails/wine, and not all of us had a salad/soup/appetizer. We shared a couple of desserts. The bill came to $400 which I felt was way over priced for what we got. If the food had been "to die for" I would have felt it was worth the money, but in my opinion it was not.
It’s one of our favorite restaurants in Seattle! The service and food are consistently excellent.
We had a lovely meal and basically shared it between 2. 1 entre, 1 salad, 1 dessert and 2 glasses of wine. Lovely food and staff, but the cost was way out of our budget. We were using a gift card so we could do it. If we were using our money we would go elsewhere.
Delicious food in a relaxing environment. Service was excellent and server was extremely knowledgeable about menu selections.
Great restaurant amazing service and the food was spectacular. The salads were amazing and the entrée beyond belief. A little spendy. but worth it
Good drinks, great food, outstanding service.
My wife and I went to Dahlia lounge for early dinner on the weekend. The waiters and waitresses were super polite and gave us advice on the portions and dishes we wanted to explore.
The bread salad was exquisite and so was the duck entree.
The desert was also fantastic (ask for the doughnuts - they’re very similar to sopapillas)
Found this restaurant after searching info on Tom Douglas' restaurants. All of our food was delicious. We tried the fresh bread (made next door in the Dahlia bakery) and three dipping sauces, beet salad and Tuna Tartare for a starter. While all were yummy, the Tuna was outstanding! I could have eaten this for an entree and wanted to lick the bowl. For dinner, our group had the duck, pasta and halibut. Everyone loved their dishes and finished every bite.
But, our server really made the night for us. She had excellent recommendations on drinks, food suggestions and at the end of the night surprised us with complimentary desserts. She was everything you want in a server to make your night memorable!
The food was great, but the service left much to be desired.
One of the most consistently excellent restaurants in Seattle.
Perfect food. Professional and personable waiter. Lovely atmosphere. Absolutely horrible bartender. We will be back 100 times, but would really love for your bar to be better
We dine frequently at Dahlia Lounge. We had an out of town guest from San Diego. She thoroughly enjoyed her meal at Dahlia Lounge. Thanks to the staff for taking good care of us and making our guest feel at home.
Dahlia lounge was great ! the food was fantastic and the cocktails were amazing. Bit on the pricey side but worth it nonetheless
Great food. Halibut done very well, tuna tartare and beet salads. Creme caramel for dessert was excellent. Service was a bit slow and server switched out halfway through our meal or the evening could have been a 5...
Delicious! Excellent service in a fine Seattle dining institution. A must visit for anyone who loves to eat.
Great food and service!
The food is just not as good as it used to be. It was my consistent go-to place for out of town guests. Not any more. Two mediocre meals in a row. Disappointed.
Doughnuts were awesome!
