Ordered a pizza which was soggy. Ordered swordfish and the accompaniments were bland. Nothing special. There are so many restaurants in the city that serve better food for the same price. Do yourself a favor and go elsewhere.
The food and service were excellent. Noise level very high.
Their burger is one of my favorites in Seattle and I love that they will cook it medium for you!
The drinks and Brussel Sprouts were the high lights of the meal. Our server was a little to enthusiastic about everything on the menu, making it difficult to discern his recommendations. The space has a nice feel to it, but the chair choice can make getting in and out of the table difficult.
We had an amazing meal at Outlier with friends and family. The Steak Coulette Frites was outstanding. They were even willing to substitute their incredible duck fat fries (instead of the frites) as a gluten-free option for a couple of us in our party who have Celiac. The Duck Bolognese was to die for. Great ambiance and wonderfully attentive wait staff. Another nice tip that we discovered by accident, is that the Kimpton Hotel Monaco next door has free valet parking for up to two hours when you eat at Outlier. We plan to go back very soon!
The setting is creative. But too many hard services make for too much noise. The receptionist was indifferent to our arrival and offered no assistance with hanging coats on a poorly placed rack that had flimsy hangers. The food was good but the seating was uncomfortable.
Food was very tasty. But service was a bit slow and awkward. Multiple times left sitting with empty drink glasses, paused meal, or asked to clear plate while still actively eating. But food was excellent. I'd go back.
Very interesting menu. Unusual combinations, lots of color. Carrot dish was exceptional. Great pierogies
We made a reservation, when we arrived the restaurant was pretty much empty, no host in site, one server. The rest of our group was at the table, they had been given coffee and water but no menus. We joined them and then waited. And waited. No menus, no coffee, nothing. We got our own menus and continued to wait, as other guests wandered in and mostly sat themselves. At most the restaurant was a quarter full. We found a bus boy who brought us coffee but said the waiter would come soon and take orders. We saw a lone waiter out busing tables, chatting with others, finally got his eye and let me know one of our party had to leave by the end of the hour (we have already been there 25 minutes). He took our orders and we waited some more. FINALLY her meal came, leaving her about 5 minutes to eat and run. The food was okay, not great, not terrible. Our daughter ordered a cup a tea with her meal which only came after several reminders, after she was done eating. So no, I don't recommend this place. The food was just okay, the service pretty hopeless, the atmosphere rather cold and sterile. Hopefully they will get their act together in the future.
Had Thanksgiving buffet, food was delicious. Would have given 5 stars but they were out of a dessert.
Thanksgiving 2018. No meal description, just chef favorites. We wanted to give it a try. From start to finish, excellent service. They were energetic, attentive. There were small groups and large groups. We asked our waiter Chris about buffet dish favorites. We tried everything but Chris was right in his suggestions. Dressing and green beans were the best. We especially liked the turkey leg confit and duck. The desserts were wonderful (no pumpkin pie or pecan pie), bread pudding, pumpkin cheesecake and berry cobbler. The most interesting dish was the butternut pear soup. Our waiter Chris was excellent and made sure to invite us to visit again.
Went there for Thanksgiving dinner buffet. The food was fine but not great. The food wasn't that hot, so the warming pans weren't doing their job. For the price we paid, it should have been amazing. Our server was friendly and attentive but not overbearing. He exaggerated the quality of some of the dishes. Overall an ok but not wonderful experience.
I ordered a simple salad with salmon added and was pleased to find the salmon was done perfectly; some of the tastiest I've had in Seattle - which is saying a lot! The salad itself was fresh and tasty. Our server, Chris, was pleasant, helpful, and fantastically quick.
Food was tasty, ambience was cozy and service was very good
Had a great experience here. Speedy service and delicious food. Highly recommend!
Great service by Javier! Javier is friendly, happy and great at his job
Waiter was really friendly and couldn’t have been more accommodating with my gluten free diet issues. My friend and I also really loved our meals and mimosas!
We really enjoyed sharing small plates. Our favorites were the curried carrots and flat bread. Really creative interesting dishes. We will definitely go back.
We dropped in for a quick bite which took longer than we thought to get served. I had the albacore tuna salad with a side of duck fat fries. The tuna was a big slab seared on one one side and semi-raw in the other which was ok but just did not look that appetizing. The pea vines were stringy and tough and didn’t add to the dish - better to have just stuck with mixed lettuce. When I got the duck fat fries I was surprised that they were fingering potatoes under a heap of grated cheese and asked to send them back. The explanation was really misleading and didn’t give any indication they were not real fries. I send them back and the waitress was great. My husband had the duck pasta- tasty but too much pasta and it overwhelmed the dish.
Snapper was tasty but served in a bowl with broth, but with a fork. Should have been described as soup and a spoon provided.
Server was confused a few times. The bread that we ordered to eat until our entrees were ready wasn't brought out until after the entrees were served. Server misremembered the desserts and had to go back to the table twice to ask for 2nd and 3rd choices.
The restaurant's practice of stating the price and then adding a 5% surcharge that doesn't even go to the servers continues to offend. Just raise the prices to cover Seattle's labor costs. Putting a line of tiny print in the bottom of the menu appears intended to deceive. This is a permanent rise in wages in Seattle, not something that's going to go away. This restaurant is not a chain so you don't have to have your prices match the rest of the chain; just have the food prices reflect what you pay in wages just like every other restaurant.
OK as a hotel restaurant. The atmosphere was not impressive. The menu looked good online but in person was also quite average. It wasn't bad. But it wasn't great.
limited salad and vegetarian options (sides but no entree) but fresh veggies, too oily on baked/fried front; no soup
Small plates were tasty and innovative. Curried carrots, wild mushroom toast, Brussels sprouts. Rockfish was messy to eat by hand and the accompaniments did not compliment the fish. Wait staff were attentive but not intrusive. Like so many new restaurants the noise level made conversation difficult for all of us and impossible for one person with hearing aid.
I have eaten here monthly since mid 2016 for business lunches and the food and service is always good or great. Unfortunately the new design of the restaurant is 100% hard surfaces with zero acoustic treatments, so even at lunch it’s very difficult to hold a conversation above the noise level. That might be ok for the evening crowd but it’s bad for a business lunch. I can’t imagine how the staff deal with it!
For now we have decamped to Trace across the street where you can actually have a conversation. Hopefully Outlier can address this design issue and we will return!
Brinch 2 days ini a row staying at hotel. Missed tge mark on few things. Food made w quality ingrefients but every dush missed an element on flovor profiles. Missing either salt or acid or herb or spice. Sas because jt coykd be great. Potentially a brunch issue. We hasvtheur foodcat the Big WA wine rastingbandvit was fabulous there! So maybe a brunch issue.
Despite running late with traffic we were seated and served very promptly, service was great. Food was unique with very fresh ingredients. Cucumber salad was fresh and light and the Pierogi was a delicious hearty vegetarian dish.
We dined on the same night as a large private party. The restaurant was very noisy and the service seemed to take longer than it should. They were out of two of entrees, even though it was only 6:45 on a weeknight. The food and wine were excellent though so I would definitely go back.
Took the team out to lunch for great food and conversation.
Good food and nice wine list yet the dining experience really lacked some ambience which made for an all-round “nice” date night venue, but not one I would rush to repeat.
The restaurant was pretty quiet and the serving team seemed pretty thin on the ground despite this. It also looked as though they were more interested in getting ready for the breakfast session in the morning (presumably from the adjoining hotel) than catering to current guests.
Great time and great food. The beer selection was excellent.
We wanted to try a new restaurant so made a reservation at Outlier last Saturday evening. The four of us go out pretty frequently and enjoy trying out new restaurants whether in Seattle or the Eastside. When we walked into Outlier there was nobody at the hostess station for at least five minutes. Finally a busboy noticed us waiting and got someone to help out. The ambiance in the restaurant didn't really make for a fun evening. The lighting was way too bright and lent a cafeteria feel to a restaurant that had a modern design. We debated whether we wanted to stay for dinner as we perused the fairly limited menu. We ordered cocktails and two appetizers. The guy who brought our olives spilled the entire bowl on the table and it wasn't properly cleaned up afterwards, leaving oil residue on the table where I was sitting. I couldn't put my arms on the table at all for fear of ruining my blouse. At this point we decided to pay for what we'd had and went to another restaurant for dinner. Our server appeared immediately annoyed with us as soon as she determined that we weren't going to order dinner and was quite abrupt with us at that point which was really unnecessary. We won't be returning.
Great service, good bright meeting place
Great food and service. The drinks were expensive and tasted diluted
Good French fries and nice cheeseburger construction but meat was bland. Hostess was friendly but service ambivalent. No one stopped to ask how my meal was.
I loved the quaint atmosphere and fabulous food. The staff was so wonderful, and the brunch menu was all we had hoped. I would have liked to have had some almond milk with my coffee, but the tea was a great alternative.
I would definitely suggest the malted waffle!
Went for Dinner. Has limited menu. Oysters were very good. Had a burger. A little on expensive side. Was there at five. Bar was noisy making it difficult to hear.
Great food ... service was a bit slow but just because there were not enough servers.. our server was awesome
Food was delicious and service was excellent. This was a nice “discovery” as we were staying at the hotel and wanted dinner nearby — thus, no expectations about quality of menu. We were pleasantly surprised at the special attention to the food and presentation.
Great food but disappointed by the atmosphere. Our table was basically in the path from the entrance. It was loud and difficult to have a quiet discussion with my date. The salmon was excellent. The cocktails were good.
