Just okay. Food was pretty good, but seemed a bit pricey for what it was.

Way too expensive with slow service on both drinks and food. Food was great but overpriced. Dinner for 2 was $270 which was with 2 drinks each

his was a nice stop for a late dinner. It's a cool setting in the Hotel Monaco. Everyone enjoyed their drinks. The dinner choices were varied. The Heirloom tomatoes and burrata were nice to start. The burger was a hit. Overall a good meal.

We saw our original waitress only once ... at the time she took our drink and food orders. The restaurant was NOT crowded. One of the two drink orders was not correct and we had to wait for another waiter to walk by to make this known. After waiting a lengthy time, we inquired about our meals to a waiter who happened to be walking by. One meal was brought out 5 minutes later and we thought the second meal would be right behind it but after another prolonged wait, we had to ask about the second meal and then waited another 5+ minutes for the second meal to be delivered.

Very friendly staff, excellent food. A bit pricy, but I'm from out of town. So, my frame of reference is skewed. Would definitely recommend and go again myself.

We went to Outlier for dinner before a bachelorette party. It wasn’t what we expected at all. There were only 3 other tables there on a Saturday night at 8pm. Our server had bad body odor and the food wasn’t anything special. The drinks were okay, but again, nothing special. The atmosphere screams hotel restaurant. Had we have realized the restaurant was in a hotel we would not have chose it.

Our experience was very good. Service was wonderful with the waiter making good suggestions. We weren't so crazy about the Curried Carrots. The pastrami toast however was wonderful. I'm not a fan of beef tongue but I couldn't tell I was eating tongue. Also enjoyed the beef tartare and the Ssam Rockfish. We demolished everything.

The restaurant was almost empty when our party arrived. A few people came in a little later. The waiter came over to take orders but only took a few drink orders then left. When he came back I had to say I would like to order a drink please.
When he took food orders it was the same thing he took a few then left we had to point out others would like food also. The service was terrible and the restaurant had only a very few other people in it. It appeared they had more employees then guests.
The food was very good but it was such a shame the service was awful. Especially how it is connect with the Monaco Hotel which has impeccable service and employees.
Very disappointed

Fantastic brunch with all the usuals and some wild combinations that were delicious. My only beef is that we were seated in a corner of this expansive space and could have enjoyed the ambiance much more if we had been out in the open.

My husband and I had a fantastic meal here on Sunday night.
I only had a light sweater on and was chilly so our waiter got us moved to the chef's counter where we got to watch them prepare the food- including the $140/32 oz steak!
We had the Pierogies with braised pork as an appetizer- so so good- Im craving them still. We also had a nice salad, the tuna Nicoise & a seafood over noodles dish. All were delicious. The chef's were super nice when I asked questions about the food- they even let us try the frities cooked in duck fat.
The only thing I didnt like was the TV's playing some kind of sports- tho I never like TV on when Im eating,

I made a reservation to eat there before the Pride Parade. The service was fine and everyone was friendly.
Our food came out lukewarm. The ham on the benedict was so salty, the three of us who'd ordered it couldn't eat it all. The bloody Mary's (they were on special) were so weak, we had to order another shot. It was like drinking spicy tomato juice before we added a shot. My husband got a Manhattan, which he did enjoy.
It's unfortunate because the location was great, they had good music being played by a DJ, the service was fine, and everyone was kind.
But the good things mentioned above added with bad food and drinks doesn't make a repeat customer.

We really enjoyed the food and service at Outlier. The peppered bacon is delicious, and my son devoured the chicken and waffles. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive, which was much appreciated. Highly recommend for breakfast (we haven’t tried the other fare).

Outlier was a quick place to get a late brunch on a Saturday on our way to the Seattle Art Museum. The food was very good as was the service. The place was fairly empty as it was a late and we had to order quickly before the kitchen closed.

I occasionally would go here when it was Sazerac. I thought I would give Outlier a try for an office lunch. It was fine and I would go again. It wasn't drop your fork amazing, but a very acceptable alternative for a casual business meal. It won't impress clients, but the food is tasty, served in a reasonable amount of time, by competent wait staff. All a the lunch thought their food was good to very good.

Definitely a hotel restaurant, lots of business people in from out of town probably staying at hotels nearby. Food was better than expected, but a little overpriced probably due to its clientele. If you’re local to seattle you can find something better for a better value.

The staff was friendly and the food was really really delicious. I wish I could remember what I had - it was the first day of a 6-day whirlwind conference, but the fact that I remember the restaurant says something about how good it was.

The individual who was originally supposed to be our server basically ignored us for 20 mins after we we're sat. I went and spoke with the greeter at the door, he went and found a different server who was absolutely wonderful. Food was absolutely great.

The server was very good though the wait for our drinks was too long given the place was almost empty., The menu was a bit limited and the same ingredients showed up in numerous dishes. They are very fond of truffle oil, asparagus , and hazelnuts right now. And it's really loud. They blast the music and it's a very auster place, so it's extremely challenging to talk. It was also so cold I needed to go get sweaters for the people in our group.
