The ambiance is modern, the bar has a good selection and tasty cocktails. Unfortunately they food is overpriced and uninspiring. The food attempts to be eclectic, but for tapas the portions were smaller than expected and they were missing taste. The muscles were Thai based, super salty with a tasteless curry. The Oysters were super small and only had a vinegar based compliment with it. The Tostada was super small. The only good dish was the Ahi Tuna dish. Honestly, I rather go to Elliots, pay more and get better food.
Nice and close to a large amount of businesses, including mine, in the area for a nice sit down lunch.
Terrible experience for mothers day, super expensive brunch buffet, the pastries were old, a hard scone and a dry croissant, the beef started ok but with each cut, it started to be fatter and fatter, the seafood was flavorless completely, I don't know if was because it was a buffet that they forgot to have people in service, no service at all, I order an orange juice that never came.
I was here for drinks a year ago and I recommend this place, at that time was fine, for mother's day it was a disappointing experience ruining the mother's day brunch.
The mothers day brunch buffet was quite wonderful. Amazing crab and prime rib. Cocktails were great too.
Amazing! Loved the food and omg the OJ!! Super friendly staff!
Happy hour wing size (3wings) is embarrassing. Wings tasted great but that’s such a rip off. That’s 1/4 of a pound for $6, don’t be so cheap nobody is expecting that small a size even for $6 should be at least 6 wings.
Didn’t expect to order chicken when PNW area (think salmon) but limited menu choices so I asked server what the top seller is and she said the chicken-so I ordered chicken and it was fabulous! Quite surprised, actually.
Birthday dinner for my husband. I put this in on Open Table. I didn’t expect any perks but would have liked to have been checked on by servers more than a couple of fleeting moments.
Food was good.
Outlier was a fine, not overly memorable, and loud experience. The acoustics of the room are terrible- so many hard surfaces, it wasnt even that crowded and it was hard to have a conversation. The food was good but quite oversalted. The service was fine. Cocktails overpriced. The wine we had, a Bordeaux from Oregon, was the best thing we tried. Unlikely to return, which is a bummer as it’s always hard to find good restaurants downtown.
Great lunch. The food was fast and good and the service excellent.
We were very happy with our choice for Easter brunch. The quality service was perfect. We were surprised to see that the restaurant was not full, which made it relaxing for us.
The meal was good, the service was great. I don't really care for the metal-clad tables...this restaurant does not exude "warmth." The noise was moderate, but I do like how the tables are not one right on top of the other. I was disappointed with the $18 burger, which didn't even come with cheddar cheese (it was cheap american cheese, which certainly has its place, but not on an $18 burger). My friend really enjoyed his chicken bowl, the portion of which was appropriate to the price.
We were staying at the Hotel Monaco. We decided to try out this restaurant next door. Our waiter was really unfriendly, unhelpful, rude and arrogant. When we asked any questions about the menu, he made us feel like we were annoying him. He made it clear that he would do no substitutions. There were a number of comments he made that were inappropriate and borderline nasty. The food was average. Crab/shrimp salad a disappointment . Mussels were fine, as were the brussel sprouts. They charge $4 for a small plate of substandard bread. The cocktails tasted watered down. Altogether a disappointing experience .
From the cocktails, appetizers, main course, and service was a perfect 10. Love this restaurant
The menu had been made considerably smaller and less innovative since our first time there. The food felt very overpriced for what it was, which was basically tasty but uncreative and uninteresting.
A memorable dining experience!
I had one of the best burgers I've ever had! "Outlier" Cheeseburger american cheese, PLOT, smokey island. The sauce on it was amazing as well and the burger stayed juicy until the last bite!
Our server John was fantastic, which set the tone for a great brunch. The food and drinks were as good as advertised.
Service was great food was good
The drinks were average but their Korean fried chicken wings were amazing! So tasty and would definitely order again.
The Outlier was great experience that we enjoyed very much. Great menu, great food and a great staff in a wonderfully fun an comfortable setting.
I ordered a burger for lunch and with the first bite I found it to be excessively salty, and I like salt on my food. Upon delivery to the table, part of the bottom bun was soggy from meat juice, making it challenging to eat because it was very messy and falling apart. I'd suggest they drain off some of the meat juice and perhaps toast the bun to help with this. The kitchen was kind enough to grill some onions for me, which they don't usually do, so I was grateful for that, but I think they added a lot of grease, contributing to the problem. I had salad on the side instead of fries. The ingredients were fresh but I couldn't taste or see any dressing, so it was kind of flavorless. Overall, a disappointing meal, and I won't be back because I think their lunch menu is odd (the burger was the only option for me).
Great cocktails! The food was solid. The mushroom side (which i was SUPER looking forward to!) was way too salty :/
The food and service was great however they stuck us by a table up by the door and it was cold. I had made a reservation a couple of weeks in advance so was disappointed in where they sat us.
Totally fine all around
It’s fast simple and generally open. Limited menu, so can’t go that often
Great food and service! Our waiter was very attentive and made sure that each one of our special order requests were delivered correctly to the table.
Food was outstanding, waiter was friendly and very thorough. It was my wife’s 20th wedding anniversary and couldn’t of went to a better place thanks
I (and my staff) love this restaurant - for a casual meal, an important client meal - or just for a drink. Great service, food is spectacular! Love the place.
We all loved the comfortable, relaxed feel of this place. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The seafood cobb salad was refreshing and paired nicely with the mushroom pizza, making a nice split lunch for two. Also we all loved their version of the French 74. Service was well-timed and friendly.
The food was wonderful and our server was awesome!! He recommended a great glass of wine to go with my food and we wanted for nothing. The hostess was not friendly or welcoming AT ALL which was odd for being a Kimpton employee. All in all, I would definitely eat here again.
This was a wonderful evening with some great food- my friend totally flipped over the coconut mussels. Our waitress was lovely too! I cannot say enough great things about this place. Cheers!
great lunch, great service.
recommend for business lunch.
I liked the cozy small corner style booths - nice for conversation for the two of us. I enjoyed the "Market Fish" (mahi mahi) and my husband had the steak and frites. We easily split a dessert of ginger ice cream on a blondie. I was delighted to see a Kir Royale on the happy hour menu as I hadn't had one in years - it didn't disappoint. As more people arrived, the restaurant got much louder - something I'm finding in many restaurants and wish they would do more to dim the crowd sounds.
Noise when a corporate event began. Would have been fine without them. This was a Friday evening.
Service was slow. Food was bad and highly overpriced. Would not recommend it.
We visited Outlier prior to the symphony one evening so we were on a fixed time schedule but had plenty of time. The ambiance is nice; typical open kitchen and floor plan so it is noisy but not prohibitive. The staff were excellent; we never had to wait for anything, plates were cleared timely, but we really didn't know they were there. The food was surprisingly good as well; flavors and combinations were well balanced, portions were appropriate, everything was very fresh and seasonings did not overpower the dish. The only thing that was a negative was a surcharge that was added to the bill to cover Seattle's $15/hr labor rate. It was not noted on the menu but after raising the issue to management it was appropriately dealt with. I do have high praise for management who took the feedback and immediately addressed the issue. We will visit outlier again.
The drinks were over price, but the food was delicious and the service was great. Didn't know that the valentine special you had to have. A bit pricey but great food and the portions were perfect; not too big.
I enjoy Outlier as a place to eat with coworkers, it's good food at a reasonable price. Yesterday, February 6th, we had a possible hire on-site to join us for lunch and meeting, and decided to go to Outlier. We all ordered burgers, medium rare, as an aside. While we were waiting for food to show up, the restaurant started getting smoky, more than normal. We joked that it was our burgers burning causing the smoke.
When our food showed up, it proved that I was right. My burger had about 1/8 that was medium rare, the rest was burnt. I didn't want to complain, simply because we had a prospective employee with us, but it was fairly disappointing.
Great service, the food is always good. Unique but not uncomfortable. My favorite place to sit down for lunch on a weekday!
