The food was very good. We had the carrot starter which was by far the most unique dish we had. Very good. We also shared a bunch of other plates like the laksa, the roasted chicken and the steak frites. Each was well done and tasted good. They had a limited wine list and some interesting cocktails. We had a very attentive server who kept us well fed and with full glasses.

Business lunch. Contemporary design amplifies noise. Excellent food and service but too few gluten free options. Over half the menu is sandwiches but no gluten free bread available.

It was a little disappointing to see that they serve the drinks in the broken glass. I pointed to the broken glass. the waitress was very apologetic and was willing to remove the charge from the bill as well as bring me a new drink with no charge.
She either forgot to remove the charge or something else but the charge was on the bill. Surprise!!!!
I had to talk to the manager. The charge was removed from the bill but the holiday spirit at the table was a little suppressed. To deal with that type of nonsense at the New Year Eve dinner is unpleasant.
In general , the food was excellent!

I took my grand-daughters there for lunch and when they misunderstood the server and ordered a "medium" burger they thought they were bringing them a medium-size burger, not medium-rare cooked (they're kids! and I did not pick up on it). Anyway, chef gladly took it back and cooked it a longer to be well-done and brought them both back a fresh bun. They were very happy with the service that we got there, so thank you!! It's not often that I have the chance to take my grand-daughters out to a nice lunch downtown near where I work!

Christmas Morning breakfast - limited options. We were fortunate that Outlier was open - and right downstairs in our hotel.

The food was great and the staff were cheerful - even though I imagine they'd prefer to be at home with family. I tipped accordingly - Merry Christmas and thanks for being there.

Fabulous dinner and drinks on Christmas Eve.
The staff were cheerful, lovely and efficient.
Superb recommendations and knowledge about the various dishes, and preparation.
The signature cocktails were divine. I asked for, and received the recipe for my favorite.
We will visit Seattle again and most certainly return to The Outlier.

Outlier is a great addition to the Monaco. The food (Christmas Eve dinner) was outstanding in taste (the chef made cabbage delicious), and presentation (the rockfish was spectacular). Our server, Scott W., was as close to perfect as possible -- helpful, attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. We will come back when we can.

Had a great dinner of small plates . They made great drinks plus a custom mock tail for a pregnant member of the group. Pleasant and attentive staff.

By far the WORST dining experience I've had over the last 5 years in Seattle. Service was slow and inattentive. We thought it curious that the cheese board had fig spread and tomato jam but no flat bread or bread slices then the next table got theirs and saw that indeed it should have been there. We could have complained if someone had bothered to ask how we were doing.

Then my "duck breast" arrived. 1 slice of breast intact and another precut into 4 bite-sized pieces. No, these weren't duck breast halves - they were literally 3/4 inch strips cut from the breast so I'm guess each breast half was split between 2 orders. Also, all the seasoning for the dish was in the greens under the duck. The meat itself was just salt and pepper. To be fair, the cooking on the duck was done correctly and I'm sure it would have been good if it had still been hot when it arrived but it was allowed to sit before a food runner discovered it so by then the moisture had ruined the crust on the outer skin.

My wife's salmon was well prepared but it was served with a flavorless corn cake that was too mouth-dessicatingly dry to take more than two bites of.

On top of bad food and poor service, they tried to present us a bill that was more than twice what we ordered.

I'd rather eat at Jimmy John's and support the murder of endangered species than eat here. If you get the opportunity to miss this place, take it.
