I was really dissapointed. Came with my family and everything started out great, but the food really disaapointed. I ordered the “Eggs Benedict with Pork Tenderloin”. The poached egg was perfect. The pork was very overcooked, tough and not very enjoyable. The english muffin was also tough and difficult to cut.

My daughters Grilled Cheese was served burnt, with large burnt pieces of cheese on the plate. My other daughters French toast was also charred black and served in a way that was difficult for her to eat (huge chunk of bread). Both kids plates looked like they were just labled “kids” without considering what kids actually like/eat.

Service was fine, nothing special. I’ll admit I was annoyed by the required 20% service fee given I had a poor experience. The waitress felt bad and comped me a “birthday discount”. It wasn’t her fault the food was poor quality.

The cod was very good but there service was a bit lacking. Server never introduced himself and follow up on requests was slow. I just don’t think you need to remind your server that you ordered a drink....table was next to the noisy kitchen. And for a Coconut Cream Pie....you’d like to taste the coconut; but not here. Ugh....lots of $$ for average.

Better even than I remembered. Great service. Focused on fish this time: four appetizer combo and black cod with wheat berries — very different from other seafood in this town of seafood. A little pricey but certainly reasonable.

The noise level seems to have gotten worse. The food and service is tops. Unusual combinations of elements in each presentation. We always go here for our "Birthday Celebration"

We even have a candle on the dessert. Such a neat touch for adults, just one candle!

So disappointed. I Ubered downtown to meet my husband for an anniversary dinner and was completely unimpressed. I don’t usually write things like this but it was so blatantly bad I just have to do it. EXTREMELY slow service, 6 pm on a Tuesday. It was not even a remotely full restaurant - we were hungry and thirsty and everything took forever. Food presentation looked rushed and slopped onto plates, soup was room temperature...just really everything was disappointing, carpets looked dirty...I’m just so sorry to have to be writing this - I really wish I didn’t have to.

I had been looking forward to trying this restaurant for a long time. To be honest, I did not love it. What I disliked most was the attitude of the hostess when I checked in for my reservation. I was dining alone which is often what I do particularly when I travel by myself in a new city. Her comment that “this is a very busy time” and I don’t know where we can put you” was very off-putting. I ended up in the bar which was fine since I had a table. I will not eat at the bar or on a high level table but fortunately that wasn’t the case. If a restaurant is too busy to handle single diners, they should not allow for reservations for them. I am very sensitive about this.

The service was okay but not as attentive as it could be. I was never asked if I wanted more coffee. They add a 20% service charge. I really wonder if this does not give server an incentive for tips and thus they are more lazy.

Some of the food was very good but I found the breakfast potatoes to be much too salty.

I don’t think I will return to this restaurant on a return trip to Seattle.

This is one of a handful of restaurants in Seattle that we keep going back to. You can count on well prepared food and a professional wait staff. We have never had a bad meal there and we love the customer service. Good wine selections too. Then there is always access to great desserts from the bakery next-door or from the menu.

My wife and I introduced a couple to the Dahlia Lounge for the first time. They both enjoyed their entrees and drinks. She had the Dungeness crab cakes which were full of crab and outstanding flavor complemented by a hibiscus and gin cocktail. He had.the skirt steak with an excellent Oregon Pinot Noir. I think we added two new converts to the restaurant my wife and I have enjoyed for years. The Triple Coconut Cream Pie and dessert doughnuts we wonderful and satisfying as usual.

Our table was ready at the right time which was appreciated. The service was a bit slower than I thought it should be given the attendance in the restaurant. Our server was pleasant enough, but kept referring to our older guests as "darling," "sweetheart", etc. I know that some people find that endearing, but they did not. Just thought I'd mention that for future reference.
