We had no complaints with the food or the service. Infact the service was wonderful. It was the 20 percent service fee that left a sour taste in our mouths. Being from out of state we were not aware of this fee nor were we told. As a result we left a 20 percent tip on our bill which already included a 20 percent service fee. In total we paid 80 dollars in tips on a 176 dollar bill

Priced higher. Champion was not that fresh, Appetizers, average, outstanding main and desert.

We ordered octopus, and beets, as well as the spaghetti with clams for apps, They are ok- average. The only interesting one was Outputs with the watercress - that was very interesting and refreshing.
Spaghetti with clams was too oily.
Beets salad - with miso, I thought that was an interesting concept, but the sweetness of miso actually brought out the bitterness of beets more, created undesired combinations - not good.
Highlight: the sea bass as main dish came out surprisingly good. It was so well cooked, tender, the flavor very clean, yet with subtle umami and sweet of the fish. I have to say it was one of the best I have ever had.
My husband had the duck breast, he felt it was slightly over cooked.
Desert: we had sesame cake and soufflé. Sesame cake was soso, the cracker decoration was better than the cake; the soufflé was outstanding, best I found in Seattle so far.

All in all, worth the visit. At the least, I’d come for that soufflé

Worth a visit.

The food was very good, fresh ingredients and delicate flavors from the appetizer to the dessert. I went there to try the restaurant week menu. Great place to visit with an amazing view.

Wow! I can easily say the experience at Charlotte was the best one in Seattle yet. John was our server and he was FANTASTIC! Everything brought to the table was the best of its kind; we started with a Kobe beef slider which featured lamb bacon (which I didn’t even know existed), the steak was crusted with foie gras 🤭, the sea bass would fall onto the fork upon contact and we had this very unique and tasty dessert which was a play on a fruit & cheese board (pictured). All the food hit all the right taste profiles and textures for a flavor explosion in your mouth!

The restaurant is on the 16th floor with wonderful views of Puget Sound and downtown Seattle. The food was outstanding, though a bit pricy. The octopus was very tender and accompanied by lightly pickled vegetables, pine nuts and a broccoli sauce. The salmon and the sea bass were both cooked to perfection and served with wonderful, complementary sauces and vegetables. The lemon tart and the raspberry panne cotta were beautifully flavorful. The wine list was decent, though heavily weighted to expensive, higher-end wines. Service was attentive and impeccable.

Service was outstanding. Food was quite good and tasty. The octopus in particular was excellent. The cocktails were simple, but refreshing and not a mash of sugar.
For dessert, the soufflé was super good. It was moist, fluffy and not overly sweet.
Overall ambience was just right - bit of music playing with folks talking but not loud. The views were excellent.

Wonderful! Go at once. Seattle has arrived with a world class hotel and restaurant. The only complaint I have is have a reasonable price on some WA wine. Too expensive for ordinary wine. And not all of us want super expensive wine.
The design, layout, and architecture is fabulous! Service was great. Food was great. Classical music was great. Really greta for special occasions and date nights!

Great choice of drinks but no book-thick lists of options. Same with dinner menu. Not too many options but each pick is a win. Special thanks to our server, Daniel, he is classy, fun and very knowledgeable. Overall it was a great evening, definitely will come again.

Worst/wierdest service. Reservations for the 7:30 tasting menu - not seated until 7:50; no food arrived until about 8:15. There was regularly 15/20 minutes between dishes coming out. The restaurant was practically empty, seemed like there was more staff than customers. The server was nice, but the service was as if we were at a diner - not at a $200 per person "fine dining" experience: not replacing utensils between courses, knowing nothing about the wine or food... Some of the courses were good, but most of them were the a mish mash of flavors that did not go together at all. The pork belly was served with wilted lettuce wraps that had brown spots on them. I left hungry.

Their bathrooms are amazing, though.
