Great food especially chicken liver mousse and Gratin sunchoke mushrooms.
Usually better. We ordered a salad that had 4 ingredients and 1 was missing. Steak Frites were not hot. Otherwise was fine and they comped us a dessert. We will be back but they were off their game that evening
I've been meaning to eat here for some time and it did not disappoint. We shared four dishes and each were spot on - duck drums, kale salad, squash soup, black cod. It was the right amount of food for two and the cocktails were delicious also.
Each time you dine at L’Oursin, it is better than the meal you’ve had there before. The crazy thing is, the first meal I had there was one of my best in Seattle and I’ve been back many times since. In fact, I tell everyone to go there. The service is if the highest class and care without feeling formal. The food is insanely good, and the beverages somehow magically uplift the entire experience altogether.
Amazing food, ambience and great service!
Definitely I will come back
Really enjoyed the great variety of great small plates.
For future visits to Seattle L'Oursin will be on our list.
Best date spot in town
Great food - Awesome natural wine list!!! The service was great in part because the servers were so knowledgeable about the food and the wine. Cool spot - very comfortable
The food, all of it from start to finish, was just great!!! Service was spot on and they have a fantastic natural wine list. Cool place. What more can you ask for???
I am returning 2 days after my first visit.
My favorite restaurant in Seattle. Great menu, great service. Comfortable atmosphere. They helped my vegetarian friend find something to eat that wasn't on the menu. Great experience both times I have visited. Do not miss.
As ever the service is professional, attentive and kind; creative and flavorful dishes to share, and a beautiful wine and cocktail menu to explore. Well done!
Great spot for a special occasion or date night. A little pricey, but the food quality is excellent. Service was fantastic and the overall ambiance of the restaurant is charming. Highly recommend!
This is the place if you like sea food prepared the French way.
This is a good spot.
Some of the food was outstanding, the main dish was fine but not amazing. The wine pairing was good and not terribly expensive. The ambiance is ok, a neighborhood/empty feel with moderate-loud noise. $200 for two of us with a bottle of wine seems not a "value meal." The service was OK but a little slow.
Not to be missed! Fantastic food and service!
Meal cooked with care and precision. Good variety in the menu. Quiet Sunday evening, with good service..
Food: We tried 6 items from menu, everything was pretty tasty, but there were things like capers and olives that were in 2 dishes that were not mentioned on the menu, which was a bit surprising. The steelhead was the top dish in flavor and presentation. The urchin was beautiful in presentation, but could've used room temperature butter or warm bread so that we could actually spread it.
Ambiance: it was pretty chilly in the restaurant and the lights were very bright. The bottles lining the wall and the light fixtures mimicking urchin were very on point.
Service: our service was top notch and made the difference in our night.
Overall, it was good, but not great. I would try it again for a happy hour to try something different.
My wife and I have dined here in the past. This time was particularly impressive. We were here for our anniversary and treated like VIP guests. They made our day special even though they did not know it was a special occasion. Zach and staff couldn’t be more personable or knowledgeable.
Could not love their food more. We ordered oysters, charcuterie, cod, sweetbreads....everything was so delicious. You will not regret picking this restaurant.
Exceptional, interesting food that is carefully prepared. Lovely setting. Much better food and fairer prices than other places in town. Will definitely go back
Consistently among the very best spots in Seattle. Great wine list, distinctive cocktails and a really fabulously balanced menu that’s prepared meticulously. Such a welcoming staff and ambiance as well.
We had a great meal. The Oysters Rockefeller was excellent as was the rest of the food. I was a bit put off by the $3.00 charge for additional butter with the bread and by the no-refill policy on coffee after dinner. Overall, we would go back.
We wanted to try the tasting menu but was not available on Monday evenings,
Four of us shared 6 appetizers and all three entrees plus two desserts.
Everything was delicious, well prepared and nicely presented.
I sent drinks to the kitchen and the Chef or Sous Chef in charge came over to thank me.
Rarely this happens and we thought it was very nice.
Service was very good and genuine.
Definitely would return.
Wonderful. Only word to describe it.
The food was delicious, service was stellar, location is convenient, no complaints.
I asked during dinner that if we can get a candle on the dessert. Sadly the server totally forgot about it! Looks like they were very busy the whole night. Suggest hiring more people or please remove the fixed tips!
Food is okay considering the price.
Went on a Wed evening so was not crowded at all. Lovely gem of a place - innovative and tasty cocktails. food was fine - just prolly overpriced for what you getting.
Seafood choices and bar menu were good. Service excellent, overall good dining experience.
Had a birthday dinner here and everything was exceptional! Service is wonderful, wine even better and food is amazing! Recommend for everyone :)
Bring your own champagne if it’s a special
Occasion as they don’t have any on the menu...
Service was excellent. Every course was way too salty for the 3 of us. Many people love salty food, but we don’t.
I'm sorry your food was salty. We strive to season things perfectly, but everyone has different tastes. I encourage you to engage in a dialogue with your server; they're here to help you have a great experience. If you had given us the opportunity, we would of course have been happy to gently season the rest of your meal. I must also point out Ruppert-Leroy's “Les Cognaux” Champagne is the first wine on our bottle list, followed by many other sparkling options. Thank you for the opportunity.
Everything was okay until the entree
Duck breast served well done. Not a hint of pink. Chewy and looked like, as my date said, pot roast. Not very apologetic server. Will never go there again.
Disappointing food and service was very slow. The natural wine was good and the place is cute. Only dishes we thought was good was the chicken. Would not go back.
Delightfully surprised by the selection, preparation and service. Most impressive wine list. Very knowledgeable server. Great addition to the neighborhood and city. Thank you.
A stunner, an all time date spot - food, wine, ambiance. Amazing
The bar is not a comfortable eating space. Seated with my knees mashed against the bar, I had to lean forward at 60 degrees to get my mouth over my plate. But the food was great!
Probably the Best Cocktails I have had this year and I have been to bars
in NYC, Chicago, Detroit, LA, Amsterdam, London and Split this year!!!
Absolute class and refinement. We come here at least once a year, if not more, for special occasions.
Birthday celebration — they provided a complimentary dessert. Thank you!
Food was tasty and sophisticated. Salads with watermelon and watercress were fantastic. Oasis buco was delicious.
