    Service was excellent! Prices are fairly high, so food quality should match. Website happy hour info was inaccurate, as was info about heated patio. I love that you can sub an Impossible burger patty into any burger, but both of ours was burnt and crunchy. They offer free valet parking for 2 hrs, which make this a convenient place near Columbia Tower to have a drink and a meal. Our waiter was top-notch and attentive.

    I ordered the shrimp and grits And it looked really good on the menu which included poached eggs. When it arrived it had some kind of tomato thing on top that had a burnt taste and there were no eggs. I had to wave down a different waiter because our waiter could not be found to tell him that the dish was supposed to have eggs & he ordered them for me. When the eggs did arrive they were overdone like a boiled egg . By then the grits were cold. The bloody Mary was underwhelming.

    It was a burger on a plate with a pickle. It needed to have fries, or a salad, come with it on the plate. Fries were extra and the smallest portion fed our table of three people. I got the lamb burger and asked for it to be medium, but it was really medium rare if not rare in the middle. Taste of it and the American burgers ordered at the table were good, but not great.

    We had the American Breakfast and eggs and potatoes were cooked just right, often potatoes can be undercooked. We especially appreciated the rosemary salt, it was a nice touch. I would recommend that toast get buttered as it comes out of the toaster as it's always too cold once it reaches your table. Service was very good. We would go back!

    Food and service were both poor. I can empathize if they are short staffed. Just set expectations with customers. My drink never came and I had to ask for it from staff walking by. Apps came out after our main course. Apps (Brie cheese and squash)were flavorless. Smash burger was not smashed, but rather just a normal burger with two thick patties. Tater tots were just balls of lightly baked sweet potatoes. Wouldn’t go back.

    Service was incredibly slow despite the restaurant being mostly empty. The server was inattentive. Somehow the place kept getting more and more smoky- I don't know what the kitchen was burning. The food was a mixed bag- some was fine, some was less delicious. I used to come here before COVID, so I probably have a biased view of what it should be like.

    If you had to choose between dog food and the outlier. Definitely go with the dog food. I haven’t had a meal this bad in a long time. Food was cold. Not cooked all the way. No flavor. We went to McDonald’s and had fish sandwiches. Please close and reboot this joint. Yes. It’s an outlier. One of the truly bad restaurants in Seattle.

    Extremely slow service and minor resentment after sending our 2 over cooked burgers back. Second medium rare also come back well done causing the burgers to be dry and Unenjoyable. The over the top milkshakes and some of the flavors are great but the over all cost and service don’t make this a place I’ll return to.

    The cocktails were very good, the poutine as well. However the Outlier Burger was pretty average for the price, I was underwhelmed. Service was incredibly slow, food was overpriced, and the restaurant was very loud. Cool venue but I won’t recommend this to most.

    Nice space and good wait staff. Burger was so-so, certainly not worth $20 -- especially since fries were extra. Brisket pizza was good, though a few too many brisket bits were just fat. $10 for a lass-than-a-pint beer was also out of bounds expensive. Burger, appetizer pizza, a beer, simple mixed drink, and side of waffle fries was over $100 with tip.

    The website made the restaurant seem very nice, but the reality was just the opposite. No ambiance, terrible acoustics. Service minimal. The food was the real disappointment. We ordered a burger and gourmet fries. What we got was an undercooked burger, cold (untoasted) bun, cold additions (over grilled onion, wilted lettuce, SWEET pickles (who does that on a burger?)), and no presentation. The fries were also cold, over salted. and you could hardly eat the way they just threw the parmesan on. Don't waste your time or money on this place.

    The menu shown on open table and on their website is not updated. This is purely a pizza and burger restaurant. Staff was friendly but understaffed. I wouldn’t have chosen this restaurant had I known they didn’t have all of the items listed on their online menu.

    Our dinner at Outlier was fantastic. The asparagus & fresh greens salad was perfectly dressed. My husbands Steak Royal was done to perfection, and my Diablo Prawns were in a to-die-for sauce. Finished with an excellent apple tart and a fine creme brulee. Servers couldn't have been nicer. Highly recommended!

    All hard surfaces make it a bit noisy. Menu is short but we were both very happy with the excellent quality of the entrees. Dessert was not printed on menu, but was available (crème brûlée was excellent). Wine list was short but we found a delightful red blend from Oregon.

    took a cab in the rain and arrived on time the host said they basically couldn’t seat us they were way to far behind understaffed etc normally this wouldn’t bother me but you should probably notify opentable and or other booking apps so you can stop taking online reservations

    Booked for a special occasion several months in advance, restaurant cancelled our reservation 2 hrs before. Booked us into a close by restaurant that scored zero in every metric. A really poor match for an alternate restaurant for our younger group. So disappointed that we travelled from all over US and Canada to join for one special evening. Should have stayed in hotel and ordered in pizza and champagne!

    Fantastic table side service. Very creative house cocktails, with servers going the extra mile to ensure you'd be happy with the drink/cocktail you order would be enjoyable. Eagar to provide samples/taste to ensure you're satisfied with your order. Food menu is very diverse and delicious. A place that I think many people would find a dish they'd be happy with. Layout very accommodating to groups. There's a couple of side-rooms that can fit larger (6+) parties. Became a "must return" restaurant after trying the first appetizer.

    The menu at the restaurant did not match the one online. Our server was earnest and helpful. He tried almost too hard to get us the best deal on how to order what we wanted. The space is designed to be as noisy as possible. Old guys like me don't really enjoy that atmosphere. The food was very good and servings were almost too generous. Given the quality of what was served, the price seemed moderate.

    Watched our food sit on the pass thru long enough for it to be cold when it got to us. Severely overpriced, and I got sick a few hours later.
