Extremely slow service though the actual servers were very nice. Food was good, drinks were only so-so but for the price definitely not worth it. In the area we were seated, the tables were so close together that there wasn’t even really enough elbow room between us and the couples sitting next to us. Overall it just wasn’t a good experience and I can not recommend it to others.

The atmosphere is modern and fun. My friend and I had dinner here on Valentine’s Day, so they were only offering a prix fixe dinner menu. The cauliflower soup with Dungeness crab was so delicious. We had one each of the entrées and shared them. We had roast chicken served with wonderful grilled brussels sprouts and lardons on a bed of mashed celery root, and a fillet served on fancy hashbrowns and creamed spinach. The filet melted in our mouths and we loved everything but the creamed spinach. For dessert we got one each of a chocolate cake and the pears stewed in red wine served with mascarpone. The cake smelled and tasted a bit stale, but it came with amazing raspberry crisps made of caramelized sugar. The pears were good but the sauce was a little too “interesting” in a way we couldn’t quite identify. We did not finish either one. Overall, I would probably eat here again, but will not make a special effort to come back.

Really bad experience. Slow service. Steak was ordered medium, but was presented undercooked to the point of being unsafe. This was our third try on this place - we won’t be returning.

Went here for Valentines day which had a special menu provided however my husband has celiac disease so they allowed us to order from the menu. Food was very flavorful. The appetizer carrot vadouvan dish was amazing. Also had the steak and frites which had good flavor and potatoes were nice and crispy. Had a squash salad which was ok but nothing amazing and the cheesecake as we were able to get it without crumbles so was gluten free. Cheesecake didn't have a lot of flavor but maybe that was because we didn't have the crumbles too. Overall it was a good meal, friendly service and fun ambiance.

Very disappointing Valentine experience. First Open Table shows about $30/person when it is closer to $60. When we arrived, we were given a table in a dark spot next to the bar. We asked for a booth and hostess told us we would have to wait with no offer of a better location. The table next to us was declined by the next five patrons who were offered better seating. We were only offered a prix-fixe menu for Valentine Day with two options. Other tables seemed to be able to order other items off the regular menu, but we were not given any other options. We both had the filet which was very good. The space is concrete, steel and chain link. It is loud and dark. To top it off, they added a surcharge to the bill which was NOT disclosed on any menu. Other places in Seattle don’t have hidden charges. When I asked the hostess about the surcharge, she first pointed out the price for the meal, when I clarified that a surcharge is not the price, the hostess told us that is was required by Seattle and then said "would it make you feel any better to talk to the manager". This seemed like a blow off and we let it go rather than pursue it then and further spoil the evening. Undisclosed fees are simply unacceptable (& possibly illegal). The prices in the menu should be the cost, not a lower limit plus whatever the establishment decides to add.

Very disappointing experience! Horrible overhead spotlights shining in our eyes. 2 of the entrees on the menu are pizzas - they were not available on a Saturday night! Duck breast was a salad but no reference to it being a SALAD - offered as an entree. Waited 15 minutes for a beer and glass of wine , after being seated. Service was rather condescending and we were then ignored.
Would not recommend this restaurant for dining. Perhaps the bar experience is better.

Food was delicious. But service was very poor. Had to ask for knife multiple times, wasn't offered dessert and barely saw our server. The lighting was also odd. Felt like we were in a cafeteria. Made a reservation for 4, but got a table meant for 5 which made it difficult for everyone to converse.

Our server was excellent - and made our experience here even better. My dinner was on the lighter side - roasted carrots with several other tastes to combine with it (as directed by the server) to create a wonderful blend of flavors.

Delicious mushroom pizza. Okay duck bolognese. Service was odd--delayed and awkward at 11:20 am, then hyperactive for a bit, then delayed and awkward near check time. I'll be back but wasn't any more than pleased/okay/content overall.

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.

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.
