We were there quite early in the evening. The food was good although the main dish and hot sides were only moderately warm. Three of the thalis were either a pickle dish or a salad which makes the price seem a bit much. Our server was just kind of going through the motions, not overly attentive at all. [I kind of attribute this to the whole 20% tip built into the bill — there is no incentive (or dis-incentive) to perform]. Our wine pours also seemed over-priced for the quantity. We won’t get in a rush to return.
Food was great and pricing wasn’t too bad. I would definitely go there again.
It was good except it took forever to get our meal. We came in at 8 and didn’t eat till about 10. One appetizer before that, but only one of our party was having that , so everyone had to wait a long time for their food.
The food is always great. We appreciate the variety of dishes with a choice of main; everything is orchestrated to work tog ether. Professional service and noise levels that aren't through the roof.
From start to finish, everything about Poppy exceeded our expectations. Friendly, attentive staff, thoughtful menu and presentation, quality of food was excellent. Cocktails were an unexpected highlight.
This place is always amazing. Every time we go we are blown away. And they went above and beyond to accommodate kids! Great food and service.
Everything was excellent except that service was INCREDIBLY slow. The wait staff was very good, and apologized many times, and even comped us a delicious appetizer. I don't think our wait time was the norm. But it was at least an hour before we got our food.
My favorite restaurant in Seattle never disappoints
The food was outstanding and the service was great. But it was so noisy it was different to hold a conversation. The decor is also a bit stark. The restaurant could do a better job creating more character, ambience and “old Seattle” feel.
Really enjoyed the food and service, including Kate at the front desk.
We know why they automatically add a service charge to the bill (3 persons dining) because the service is so poor. Food was good but had to send one dish back because it was cold. Management need to train staff on better service. Lots of staff standing around talking to each other instead of filling water, clearing tables, etc.
Gorgeous food worth every penny, wish they offered some more affordable wine options
I would recommend the food to my Indian foodie fiends to try Poppy’s delivery on the Thali plate. The food was outstanding. The decor is cold, hard and the space is very loud.
Great overall- excellent food and great service!
Good time together
The food was not what we expected at all. We ordered a thali that had several different types of small dishes. While the food may have been made well, it wasn't very tasteful and did not resemble Indian food at all. The dishes didn't seem to go together. Our waitress was also not very friendly and it felt like we were being rushed to leave. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone looking for good Indian food, but it might be good for those willing to be adventurous
Every bite intriguing and delicious. Jerry Traunfeld is THE master of herbs. We had a lovely dinner with delicious cocktail too. Hoping he writes a cocktail book next!
Big bummer, we were so excited about Poppy.
Do not order the Dosa! It was so not a Dosa, we don’t know what it was.
It was a white underdone chewy pancake. The salmon was not fresh, it smelled when they brought it to the table, and totally over cooked.
We will not return to Poppy.
Very expensive dinner for amateur cooking.
The chef needs to train his cooks better, and the wait staff needs to bring the food out when it’s hot! All of our food was cold.
I can’t believe this place.
Creative food opportunities- especially the meza 10 dish. The naan is outstanding.
Corner of restaurant location a little awkward.
We love out in the 'burbs" and make the drive to Poppy.
My family and I love Poppy. We have not had a bad-anything.
First time there and we had the Tuesday Thali. Delicious, great way to sample flavors at a very moderate price. Will return!
Our first time at Poppy. We had an excellenct, knowledgeable waitress and the food was wonderful. We will definately be back.
This is the perfect place for shareable dishes that are inventive and adaptable for vegetarians.
The staff at Poppy are always so terrific, the setting always so relaxed and cheerful, the food so focused and amazing but never fussy. I could never come to Poppy often enough.
Really great food...and unexpectedly a great value.
Always a great experience on every level! Love sharing Poppy with others!
Food was good. Be aware they add 20% service charge but still put tip line on check...I did not look close enough and double tipped.
Outstanding food. Service was a bit slow between courses. But disappointed that after paying the bill I bought a book and got hit with a 20% service charge on the book. I would return for a future meal, but I won't be buying any more books there.
I absolutely loved the food at Poppy, all the different taste in stations of every course were delicious the service was great everybody was friendly the only thing I think I would say negatively is That there are a lot of hard surfaces so if you’re looking for modern it’s perfect if you’re looking for a comfy you might want to reconsider but definitely five star on the food
The wait staff person was very good and gave great service. We had to wait a long time after ordering before we got our food. Close to one-half hour. The wait staff came twice aside the kitchen was very busy and apologized.
We've been to Poppy many times and had great experiences. However, on our last visit the server routinely forgot about us - it took 20 minutes after sitting down to get waters and place drink orders. Once we finished our entrees we sat with dirty plates for at least 20 minutes until someone noticed and asked if we'd ordered dessert as part of the pre-fixe menu. After finishing our meal, we waited over 30 minutes for the check. While we like to enjoy and linger over dinner when dining out, it was clear that the service staff had forgotten about our table repeatedly. The server was kind enough to comp our two drinks, but still took over 30 minutes to bring us the check. After over two hours of dining on a weeknight when the restaurant was only about half full, we were happy to leave the uncomfortable chairs. While we enjoyed the food, the portions were small and it seems that the restaurant has started to veer away from the original thali experience. We were huge fans of this restuarant and are sad to see it change.
Astounding variety of flavors.
Service and cocktails were amazing, it was a bit loud.
Went here for a triple birthday celebration and it was perfect. Had a table near the front windows, which was lovely, and the atmosphere was perfect -- nice but not stuffy, convivial but not too loud. The food was so much fun to share, as there were so many interesting flavors incorporated in the meals. Service was friendly and they didn't rush us. Thank you Poppy!
Beautifully prepared food, enticing choices and flavors, generous portions, comfortable atmosphere, excellent service. A special place.
The food was absolutely fabulous. I can't complain at all about our food. I love the eclectic combination of flavors that go in to all dishes and drinks. The bussers around us also worked hard to make sure our water glasses never stayed below half full for very long.
Unfortunately, the service left quite a bit to be desired. I'm sad that I had to get a manager involved because we ordered our first round of drinks before we even ordered appetizers and by halfway through dinner had never been checked up on to see if we needed any refills. We were sitting at the bar and were being waited on by the bartender, who was very overwhelmed with making all the drink orders for the entire restaurant, and serving anyone seated there. I get that he was busy, but it's not OK to go through 2 courses without being asked if we needed anything else.
The management was very quick to respond and get us taken care of, but I hope they work to make sure the bar is more adequately staffed in the future.
We love eating at Poppy! Always surprising and creative. The layers of flavors in every dish simply amaze. From dosas, to pork shoulder with pineapple kim chee, we never know what to expect and we're always delighted. And desserts are off the charts! This is a special place for celebrations and relaxing into the artistry of great food well done.
Always delicious and inventive. I didn’t realize it was Restaurant Week till I made the reservation, then I thought that the a la carte menu would also be available, which it was not. So the choices were less copious and slightly less interesting than usual, but dinner was still great. What they can do with eggplant … !
Went the first time for Restaurant Week. Great menu, reasonable wine at fair prices. Service was a bit slow, but I would definitely go back.
We had a another wonderful dinner at Poppy. Taking two friends who had never been there. One friend had the Vegan Thalli and it was delicious. Just love the place - friendly, great staff, great ambience and fabulous food.
