Liam's - Permanently Closed Ratings and Reviews
In a word, the food at Liam's was adequate -- it wasn't good or bad, it just was. In truth, I've made a much better sandwich with little thought and fewer ingredients. My friend's salad was much the same, so I'd have to say that the value we got for what was paid just wouldn't justify another visit.
I went Liam's a few days ago to do a belated birthday celebration for a friend. It was pretty good. Quick seating because i made reservations or because it was late and there were open tables? The waiter was friendly and quick toanswer our questions about recommendations. When I asked if there were birthday specials he brought my friend a dessert menu to choose from (she didn't actually get anything but it was nice that they had that). The food was pretty good. I had pork chops, my friend had Mac ncheese and my other friend got lasagna. The lasagna was the best. The wait for food went a little but long and the food a bit on the pricey end considering we're college kids without real jobs yet, but good for a special occasion. I would tell a friend to try it.
Enjoyed a lunch at Liam's with family from out of town. Partook of the Dine Around Seattle promotion and all three of us had a different entree. We all enjoyed the food with good flavors.
My niece ordered the meatball sandwich which came with house made potato chips. The chips were close to burnt so not as flavorful as they should have been.
I enjoyed the sausage and gemelli pasta dish as well as the mussel appetizer. The bread served with the mussels was not anything special but allowed the diner to enjoy the delicious broth that the mussels were served in.
I find myself meeting friends at Liam's for lunch or brunch at least once a month. It's central enough (and has good enough parking) that friends from all over the city are willing to meet me there. Liam's is unpretentious, but the food is always a notch or two above very good bar food. I had a frittata with Beecher's cheese curds and veggies that was just about perfect. My dining companion had a waffle and bacon. She orders waffles each time we go out to brunch and pronounced this the best by far. I like that so much at Liam's is locally sourced. It just tastes better that way.
I had the steak salad with chimichurri. I asked for the steak medium. Only three small pieces of steak done rare and chewy. The plate was not pretty to look at as all the ingredients were to close together as one lump. A companion had salad and the pieces of lettuce were too big so they had to fold or cut in order to eat. Another had crab and it was basic and plane, not cooked in butter or any flavor.
This is a favorite spot for dinner. Our most recent visit was notable for a very good red wine on the list and good service, available & responsive but unobtrusive. Disappointed that my favorite mussels were not available but enjoyed the salmon instead. My partner was happy with his steak. We'll keep returning...
We enjoyed excellent food and drinks at Liam's! The staff were very friendly. We went later in the evening, so it wasn't too busy. Warning: the map marker on OpenTable shows the restaurant in a dead end street that is a residential area. The restaurant is actually in University Village.
I was just going out to dinner with my daughter... didn't really realize that it was Valentine's Day. I was able to get a reservation (thanks open table) and we had a great meal and truly enjoyed ourselves. Liam's was busy, but not so crazy. The food was very good, flat iron steak, flat iron salad. Completely satisfied and a wonderful evening!
We went here for Valentine's Day dinner. It was romantic because the fireplace, candles, and twinkly lights were beautiful and gave a rosy glow to everything. It was intimate because unlike a lot of restaurants that cram tables together so you are almost sitting closer to a stranger than to your date, the tables were spread far enough apart so that it felt very private. As for the food, my roast chicken was yummy with crispy skin, just the way I like it. There was a special chocolate mousse dessert that was also great. The service was very good. We will be back for sure.
An absolute delightful evening ... In addition to great friends, quality of food and outstanding service all were a perfect match! I had the oven roasted chicken with fingerling potatoes. I wish I knew how to reproduce this entree at home and look forward to returning to enjoy again.
Located on the newer side of University Village, this is a great spot for dinner or a nice glass of wine to take a break from shopping. When inside, you have no idea you're in a mall. For that matter, U Village hardly has the typical 'mall' feel. Anyway, food is always great and lots of great options. They have gluten-free options but the menu is pretty meat-centric. However, I never have an issue when I ask for modifications to my meal. They're very accommodating! My only wish is that they had more gluten-free, vegetarian options. Particularly in the appetizers - why doesn't anyone ever carry gf crackers? Service is always great and they have a fantastic wine list and always feature a Washington wine of the night. I definitely recommend this spot!
The restaurant was nice, atmosphere good. The food selection was good and the server was friendly and attentive. Two of us ordered a waffle and they were both cold when they arrived. The butter on top was cold as well so it just sat there like a stone. The flavor of the cornmeal waffle was good, though on the small side. Could be that they just need better timing to make sure all the food is hot when delivered. I also thought it was a little pricey.
A miscue on who was covering our table started off with us waiting for 10+ minutes without any server or staff interaction whatsoever. We had to flag down a team member to let them know we needed some help to get things going.
From that point on the service and food was flawless.
All of the food, we are repeat customers, was exactly as described and prepared skillfully and tasted great.
In the end it all worked out.
I enjoy the Liam's Happy Hour menu so invited a friend to meet me at Liam's for lunch. We were both disappointed in our meals. My friend ordered the turkey burger and it arrived burnt and way over cooked. She had to request condiments, since it came dry, although it did have lettuce. I ordered the tomato soup and cheese sandwich. The soup was good, but the cheese in the sandwich was so salty I could only eat half of it. Very disappointing lunch.
Unfortunately the service was terrible. Friendly waiter, but rather awkward or inexperienced. He had a hard time getting our drink orders and dropped a glass on the floor. The food was lukewarm. We all ordered the black cod dish, which was pretty good. He didn't offer us a second glass of wine or beer and he was nowhere to be seen when we wanted to order a second glass. We were all disappointed.
3 of us came for a late lunch on a Sunday. It was busy, but we got a nice booth in the back. All of our food was very nice. We had a crab cobb salad, a caesar with chicken, and the soup and grilled cheese combo. Portions were big, but not overwhelming. My daughter raved about the grilled cheese and soup. She is a vegetarian and this was a perfect lunch on a cold wet day. The only small complaint was it took a while to get our food, but we weren't in a hurry and enjoyed a nice glass of wine while we were waiting. The servers were friendly, just a bit busy. Love the glassy baby candles on the tables and the funky art on the walls.
Amazing food- all of it. Had the Restaurant Week dinner with avocado toast (crunchy and creamy, with just enough spice and lemony zing), the steak and fries (that steak was To. Die. For. So juicy and tender- and perfectly complemented by the chimichurri and fried onions), followed by the delicious apple and cranberry cobbler... a home run meal!
Hosted an out of town guest at Liam's - for dinner. Though I have enjoyed lunch at Liam's, my dinner entree was disappointing. I had the scallops over lentils and chantarelles. Both the lentils and chantarelles were overcooked - until dry! The scallops had dollops of mustard on them, detracting from their otherwise delicate flavor. The wine was tasty and the ambience is very pleasant. In sum, I would recommend this restaurant for meetings over small plates at lunch. For dinner I would look elsewhere.
