Dahlia Lounge Ratings and Reviews
I went to Dahlia Lounge during Seattle's restaurant week, we ordered wood-grilled pork, wine, dessert and some appetizers. The restaurant's famous dessert is coconut cream pie, but I ordered torte and it was pretty amazing too. Prices are high, and gratitude was %20. Ambience was ok.
My husband and I were visiting Seattle from NY and to celebrate our anniversary chose to eat here. It was a wonderful experience on every level. We appreciated the thought and care put into our dishes which exploded with wonderful flavors and we will be back.
We went for Seattle Restaurant Week and it was just OK. I think I'll go to Palace Kitchen next time. The meat was overdone and the coconut cream pie was OK but not the best I've had. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was very nice so we had a very enjoyable time. But, the food is the most important thing to me so I wasn't impressed.
Haven't been there for awhile due to awful traffic and parking downtown. But friends from KC wanted to try meal since SRW was in full swing. Had the pumpkin fritters which was better than anticipated. Pork loin entree cooked to perfection--moist and flavorful. My favorite dessert is the triple coconut cream pie. The SRW meal was FABULOUS!!!
We read the Seattle Times article for Seattle Restaurant Week and the review of Dahlia Lounge and its history of great food and great location. We were going to Seattle Art Museum for the Andrew Wyeth exhibit so decided to reserve for an early lunch. We might have been the first party seated for lunch, but our table felt so private that I barely noticed as the restaurant filled. We selected from the Restaurant Week menu—delectable tomato soup, spinach salad with goat cheese, lentils, raisins, apples and I added steak. And of course coconut cream pie bite. It was a delightful lunch with many thanks to Ian, our waiter, and to the chefs.
We were so looking forward to coming back to Dahlia Lounge, as we came a while back and loved their coconut cream pie. We were underwhelmed for lunch... the menu choices were not exciting, the food took an hour to get out to us and it was mediocre at best. The "peppers and hummus" came with maybe a teaspoon of hummus and 3 peppers.... very bland and we literally thought it was a "compliments from the chef" dish because it was soooo small. The coconut cream pie is now mostly whipped cream. Very sad because we used to love this place.
The Dahlia Lounge has been around long enough now to be considered on of the old Seattle classics...food is nearly always of high standards although last Saturday my friend's crab cake topped with a mish-mash of everything including popcorn (!!!) was pretty silly...and not very good! But that's more the exception to the rule. I've eaten there probably 40 times and have never been anything less than pleased...and the service remains stellar and professional, which these days is much appreciated.
Ughhhhhhh!!! I was visiting with my husband from NYC. And heard so much about the Tom Douglas restaurants, I couldn’t wait to try them all! Started with this one. THERE WAS A HAIR IN MY CRAB CAKE. their signature dish, and also my favorite food!! I was chewing and it was in my mouth and I wanted to DIE. Ruined my whole stay and my love for crab cakes. SO GROSS. They did offer me another and didn’t charge. I thought I could get passed this. But it’s a week later and I still feel that damn hair. Blechhhh. Bon Appetit!
Dahlia was recommended by Seattle locals. The food was creative and nicely presented. We combined a starter, a salad, and a main which we shared and thoroughly enjoyed. The salad with blackberries and beets was a nice surprise. Definitely visit Dahlia for a great meal in a warm and comfortable setting.
Wow! I can't say enough wonderful things about this spot! Went with a friend for dinner before a concert at The Moore -- best decision ever. I would even say that this might be in my top-five favorite meals of my short 30+ years of life so far. Service was exceptional; our waitress was attentive, funny, and knowledgable about restaurant offerings. We mentioned what time we needed to be at the show and were out of there right on time without feeling rushed. My only disappointment was that I didn't have room for more food! A++++ in my book - another great Tom Douglas hot-spot.
Celebrated our anniversary here. We were seated at a window table which is great for people watching. Service was friendly and helpful. We had the black cod and steak. Both were excellent. If you like coconut cream pie, don't miss it here. It's their claim to fame.
The mandatory tip included in the bill is quite off-putting, enough that it makes one more critical of the whole dining experience here. (To its credit the restaurant warns you in advance that it will allow you no discretion in what to tip.). How was the food? A little weird, but OK. How was the service? Not neglectful, but not prompt. How was the experience? Not good enough to repeat.
This was a joint birthday for my wife and her best friend which we looked forward to celebrating in a nice restaurant. To make this review a short version of our evening, it seems that perhaps the waiter should have written our order in lieu of memorization. I ordered a grilled bread salad which I did not receive and our dessert which was ordered was coconut cream pie which we did not receive. We did however receive bread which we did not order and some donuts as a thank you for spending our birthday celebration with the Dahlia Lounge. We were charged for both items which we did not order, rather than complaining and completely spoiling the evening we chose to say nothing.
I love this place for business lunches. The location is great, the booths are quiet, comfortable and right sized for a close-in conversation, and the food is always reliable excellent and seasonal. The decor is beginning to feel a little dated, but Dahlia consistently delivers on food quality and service.
