It was my husband’s bday and we went as family with 2 kids.
Food wasn’t great, ok. We are foodies and this came nothing close to the best restaurants we had tried. We spent $250 for 3 entrees, 2 appetizers, 1 dessert and drinks. Nothing lasted as wow, this is incredible.

Very Salty pasta - 2 out of three we ordered. Not sure if the chef tried it or not with recipe or ingredients. Some dishes on menu but actually no inventory but not let us know when menu was given. Disappointed. Portion is very small for all dishes.

In the neighborhood so convenient dinner place. Food was good, but the tasting menu was a bit disappointing in that it was all from the menu and didn’t each dish didn’t seem anymore connected to the other than if we’d ordered a la carte. But most plates were done very well. The crudo first course and pasta course were great. I would go back and to try the black cod

It was absolutely fantastic!
It felt familiar right away. The decor is thoughtful, clean and somber.
The food is really good, including the pasta -I am Italian and I was pleasantly surprised! Friendly and knowledgeable servers.

We had the chef's choice and every dish was really well prepared!!

We will be back very soon!

Food and ambiance were great! Hostess chased me down like a crazy person for my vaxx card before I could even say hello to my family waiting at the table for me. Terrible way to be welcomed but it all went uphill from then on.

The food and ambiance was fabulous!! Our server was also fantastic!!! Why I gave 4 stars as opposed to 5 is because your hostess basically kicked us out stating there was another party coming. There were 2 other empty tables of the same seating capacity, and my friend and I were finishing up the bottle of wine we ordered. There was no need for this rude intrusion.

I heard about autumn through a friend and was excited to give it a go! My partner and I treated some friends to dinner there on a cold, rainy evening. The cold part being important. While the starters were quite lovely, they were also quite cold, being served on cold plates in a mostly wood and concrete space. I did really enjoy the chewy carrots, but for the price would have liked a larger serving. The cauliflower starter had a tasty sauce but it was very pasty.

I had the black cod as my main and it was SUBLIME. Buttery, perfectly cooked (it WAS warm, unlike the starters) and with an amazing sauce. My partner had the pork, which they said was also very yummy, but cooled down way too fast.

The staff were all super lovely, attentive, and helpful. They accommodated dietary needs and our server even took off the menu requests for mocktails for two of our party, both of which were very good (we simply requested particular flavour notes and a sweetness level).

Overall it was good, but it would be better if they had warmed the plates so the food didn't cool so quickly. Also, the kitchen really needs better ventilation. Tables near the cooking area are smoked out and as someone with asthma, I couldn't have sat on that side of the restaurant and made it through the meal comfortably.

Visited during Seattle Restaurant Week, the menu was great! The salad with the entree was a bit too bitter for me, but my friends enjoyed it. Autumn has the same owners as Haymaker, and I love Haymaker. Our server, Rebekah was friendly and attentive. Will definitely come back!

Our food was fantastic! Loved that they did a sample of all the starters for Restaurant Week. Both the mains were incredible. Already planning our trip back!

Cute space and really attentive, knowledgeable wait staff. Perhaps it’s just restaurant week, but felt main course upgrade was not worth it and starters/main/dessert was good but not great.

On a rain-soaked, blustery night, the experience in Autumn was a delight. The meal was a luscious blend of flavors, textures and aromas that took the idea of comfort food to sophisticated new heights.
It was Restaurant Week, so our group was expecting 3 choices. It was a pleasant surprise to be treated to 4 small plates as starters. The textures ranged from polenta sticks crisp outside and creamy inside to red oak leaves in a sassy green goddess dressing. The standout was charred baby leeks in herbaceous chermoula.
For the main, I chose agnolotti with bits of sweet pumpkin floating in a decadent buttery sauce.
The grand finale was a perfectly silky panna cotta accented with poached pear.

We appreciated that Autumn had outdoor seating and effective waist high heaters that heated up the metal chairs delightfully so. And yum!! Autumn delivered inventive flavors in their cocktails, starters, and mains that delighted with every course. Gorgeous plating and lovely service and the husky in the apartment complex next door was sweet to boot. Have already recommended to others as a delightful date night location.

It did feel a bit rushed having our server coming around a lot but she was super friendly. The food was amazing and the drinks came out super fast. Would definitely want to come back! Loved the open kitchen and the vibe was super chill; it did get a little loud by the end but it wasn’t the end of the world.

This was absolutely one of the best dining experiences we have ever had in Seattle. We ordered two pasta dishes and the black cod. Looking back, I wish we had ordered every pasta dish on the menu. Can’t wait to go back!

Tasty unique dishes, all with lots of flavor. My table and I enjoyed the shishito pepper, and panisse appetizers. Both delicious, although the shishito pepper portions were on the rather small size when split between 3. I ordered the black cod which was amazing. Highly recommend this place for the service and food.

The outdoor seating was ok, but not great. My group had dinner on a Friday night sitting at the outdoor patio (primarily for COVID precautions). The outdoor seating has 4 tables, each with 4 chairs. It is covered. While there were heaters available, there were not enough to direct heat at every table. Our table ended up being rather cold halfway through the meal, despite bundling ahead of time knowing we were sitting outside. I would absolutely return to this restaurant, but would personally opt to sit inside or only choose outside during the daytime when it’s warm & dry.

Service, food quality and setting are very good. The overall value, however, is poor. We have been to Autumn several times and found many serving sizes ridiculously small. Some appetizers priced at ~$16 are so tiny that you're asking yourself whether the chef got distracted while loading your plate. In the interest of longer-term sustainability in this neighborhood, Autumn should seriously re-visit their micro-portion business model.

Very small plates and high price point. Food was good, just left feeling hungry and it wasn’t cheap. We also sat outside and they had no heat. To be fair they did call to tell us they didn’t have heat, but should offer blankets or something

It was good except the brightly lit sterile bathrooms right next to our seats was not pleasant. Also the lighting overall was too bright for a romantic date spot. The food was good, but there were pretty limited protein entree choices. I thought there might be some specials but apparently not. Too bad because it's walkable to our house so we were hoping this would be "our" spot, but it's just not really that worth it.

We had the chef's choice and it was delicious. For $72 pax, we got way more food than I think we would have gotten ordering a la carte. We got three appetizers, three pastas, two proteins, and two desserts. Every dish was delightful. The shrimp pasta was especially good!

The dishes were creative and well prepared. Oysters were probably not at their prime time and a little bit too fishy. Gelato was awesome as it was served with a pinch of salt.

In terms of the environment, maybe the restaurant was trying to comply with covid guidelines, but an opened door after sunset was a nightmare. Overall positive experience.

Lively, but not too loud atmosphere within a modern stylish space. Complex flavors blend beautifully to create delicious dishes. We loved the Shishito Peppers, Oysters, Tonnarelli and Black Cod plates. Kind and quick service. autumn is a treasured addition to the Phinney neighborhood.

The whole menu was fantastic. Autumn (unsurprisingly) had a defined and cohesive vision. The timing of the dishes was perfect. I’d highly recommend three apps and two of the pastas and you’ll be all set.

I'm a big fan of General Harvest's two restaurants in West Seattle, and Autumn is a wonderful addition. The menu is different, but also familiar. It's easy to trust that you're going to get really good food. You know it's good when lively conversation pauses so you and your friend can revel in the delicious first bites of each new dish that arrives at the table. Well done!
