We visited Loulay on a Thursday evening for our wedding anniversary and were not disappointed. Our server did a great job walking us through the menu and answering our questions. The food was exquisite - well presented and cooked perfectly. Highlights include the parisien gnocchi and the pork chop. All in all a great evening and will definitely be back!

Upscale take on classic french cuisine. Decor is modern but cozy, with high ceilings and muted colors. Service was excellent, attentive but unobtrusive. The menu is well rounded, with something for everyone and our dishes were expertly prepared.

The perfect place for brunch with a friend before going to a matinee at the 5th Ave Theater. I always love the food here and our server Yassine made us feel most welcome to be there.

Lovely way to celebrate a special birthday dinner for a close friend. Booth seating felt intimate for three people. Food as always was superbe. The excellent music sound track was an added benefit because i am a fan with same taste as whoever curates the station. French gnocchi was a big hit on our menu.

We started with French Onion soup- very good flavor, and then an order of crab beignets. Nicely done,but I would have liked more crab.

We should have stuck with the chicken or beef stew., which we had once before. Instead we got simple items off the Second course menu. Scallops were good, but there were only two. Gnocchi was bland, and a bit over- cooked. Both items were too expensive for what they were.

I have dined at Loulay several times, usually on a Theater day , to enjoy a nice lunch. I brought a friend along on Thursday, she had never been there before and was very impressed with everything and said that she would make a plan to bring a friend of her's on her next visit so they could enjoy it also..........I felt pleased that our visit had the result I expected!! We WILL be back.

The food was wonderful and the wait staff was attentive and friendly. Would have given 5 stars except for the seating. I was a single diner so they stuck me basically under the stair well...wait staff had to reach over the stair rails to serve my food. It was not that crowded when I was there and I would have appreciated a better table.

As usual, Loulay is our first choice for a restaurant whenever we visit Seattle. We had a wonderful evening and great food. From tasty first courses to wonderful braised meats ,(beef) and delectable fish (sturgeon) to scrumptious desserts, every bite is a delight. You won't be disappointed!

Our server started by informing us that we should only get one course because of our curtain time, then proceeded to ignore us for 25 minutes, not take our order and we ended up having 10 minutes to eat. Poor form, especially for a restaurant that deals with theater goers frequently.

We dine here regularly and have generally been impressed with the great service and food. While the food was good our waiter was inattentive- we told him two in our group had a theatre performance but he never came back for additional drink orders- a bisser brought me the wine list. After some time another runner saw I was waiting to order and got us wine. The delay between the appetizers and main course was about 45 minutes. Disappointing.

Loulay is a place for amazing food and attentive service, located near ACT, 5th Ave, and Paramount. The upstairs is nicer if you like watching the cooks work. The food is the highlight, prepared in the french tradition and is amazing: great flavors wonderfully presented. The wait staff works as a team to ensure customers feel well cared for. It appears that food is delivered and serving places removed by whomever is going in the right direction.
Loulay is not someplace I list as a great value. It is amazing, and someplace I love to visit, but the price is commensurate - meaning it is on the pricier end of the scale.

I’ve never had a dining experience quite like this. Amazing staff and manger. It got hectic right after getting seated yet the staff was on their A game. Water kept getting filled and the food was amazing. I’m not much of a critic on food but the overall experience and how they ran their restaurant should be the standard on a dining experience. A+
