The food was amazing! Best food in Seattle by far!
The Corson building is Always exceptional. A treat
Incredible from start to finish. I can't recommend this place enough. Came in for the a la carte menu on Friday but will be returning to try their tasting menu on Saturdays and Sundays!
Spectacular all around! Definitely fun for my foodie sister for her belated birthday. Staff and chef nailed it! Thank you!
Pretty darn amazing! 8 courses of sure bliss! Their prix fixes is up there with Herb Farm. Well thought out menu with great wine pairings! I appreciate the combination of family style and individual plate services. Great job and we be back again!
The Corson building is such a special place! There is really nothing else like it in Seattle. All our food was delicious & really interesting! Perfect night! A great place to celebrate our anniversary :)
Friends had been telling us to eat here for years now, and we finally took their advice! The food is fantastic and interesting, the staff is extremely friendly and relaxed, and it's fun to eat at the same table as others!
Very cozy. My friends were all love it! Will come back !
Valentine’s Dinner very good! We really like eating at the community tables and getting to know neighbors!
This is destination dining == worth a journey. The only other restaurant I know in the United States with such consistently interesting and delicious food is Chez Panisse.
This was a lovely dining experience that highlighted seasonal ingredients and a great value. We will definitely return!
The chef is an artist. The food was amazing. Every part of the dishes were perfectly prepared.
Food and service were absolutely amazing! It was a first time for us and we will be back.
I booked us about 2 months in advanced for our anniversary dinner, not knowing it was a social seating arrangement. Thought I was a little nervous when I found out, we ended up having a fantastic time. The hosts were really good about putting us near other couples and not in a larger group. We had so much good conversation. And then there's the food... With a good 15 minute introduction on what you'll be eating for the night, and then about 2 hours of amazing food coming your way, the price you pay is well worth the experience. You should appreciate food if you're going here, and I don't mean strange foods or the like. Just well cooked, well flavored, meticulously picked ingredients, with a comfortable social aspect. They called me the night before and asked if anyone was vegetarian and when they brought me out my delicious meat dishes, they also brought out the same thing but in a veg dish for my girlfriend. Definitely will go here again when I find the right occasion.
Very tasty daily menu, great value for the quality of the food.
The Corson Building was quite the experience. The food was exquisite - but rather than belabor the point in waxing poetic on the inimitable culinary delights, I want to highlight a couple of unexpected gains from the evening:
1. Since our party spent no time looking over menu offerings (the dinner is prix fixe) we were able to enjoy time with our friends sans interruptions or ancillary banter.
2. The dinner lasts ~3 hrs - again, you can focus on the company.
3. Invariably, you will eat things you never would order if left to your own devices. Since the plates were each scrumptious, this is another big positive for the Corson Building.
In sum, great for special occasions. Fantastic, unique food with a fun, lively atmosphere (assuming you're not dining with dullards).
Our dinner was so special. It was more like being at an intimate dinner party in a close friends home than just a restaurant night out. The kindness of the staff and ambiance is truly special and made for a memorable reunion of friends from far and wide. All dishes served were amazing. Unique and delicious.
We went to the Corson building for our son's birthday We were not disappointed! The flavors they use are exquisite and unique. The presentation beautiful. We did have to save for several weeks before we could go to this delightful venue but it was totally worth it!
I had an excellent dinner at one of their Sunday suppers. It was truly an amazing experience, one of the best meals I have had in Seattle. The food was beautiful and delicious, and it was fun to sit at their community tables. Incredible value for the price too!
Loved the experience! Communal tables are set up in what is basically the living room of a beautiful Italianate style renovated 1910 mini mansion. Very charming and quaint atmosphere with soft lighting resembling candle light. Upon arrival, one is greeted with a glass of champagne. You can chat for a few minutes while they make final preparations for the dinner, then you are invited to sit down and get to know your tablemates. The food was wonderful and plenty of it. Sunday supper included rabbit pate on toast, a huge gorgeous salad, ling cod and finally braised lamb with kale and whey. I was sceptible about the whey but it was delicious! The dessert was very good too! The meal included red and white wine. I thought the food and the experience was well worth it! Can’t wait to go back!
So much flavor in the food, an awesome experience.
We sat with six strangers who quickly became new friends. We had a family style meal of wonderful, delicious foods. We drank wine and laughed and chatted in a timeless and comfortable old space. Sharing a meal with a disparate group of strangers ensures a new experience each time... but the food and wine will be consistently good if you go to this venue. I can't guarantee good company, but I can't imagine not having a good time.
Very nice place for date. Great ambiance and good food
We had a wonderful night! We love to eat out, but our budget only allows it occasionally, so we save up and then indulge ourselves. What a treat! European-style atmosphere right in the heart of Georgetown; it's like you step into a secret portal when you enter. The service was phenomenal: warm and welcoming. The food was creative and delicious. Loved the entire evening.
I booked a reservation for the Corson Building for my first anniversary over a month in advance. My wife and I were very excited for the prix fixe Sunday supper. However, only 5 hours before our seating, I was called and informed that there was a private event and they would not be able to honor my reservation. They offered a reservation for Sitka and Spruce as compensation, but that is not even close to being on par with what we were expecting for our anniversary dinner. Needless to say, we have zero desire to give the Corson Building our business after how poorly they handled this.
Beautiful experience, food and ambiance and service. Unique environment inside and out. I'd love to know more about the history of the building. The neighborhood is a little noisy but fascinating and well off the beaten path of haute Seattle cuisine. A must do.
Interesting food that is not typically found on a menu. Portions are incredibly small, even with multiple dishes ordered, left wanting more food.
We have been wanting to try the Corson Building for a while and decided to give it a go for our Anniversary. We had our 13-year-old son with us as well.
From the moment our car pulled up until we left everything was just lovely. The staff was friendly and accommodating, the food was interesting and delicious and the wine menu was excellent. Really loved it.
I was slightly concerned about the communal seating and whether my son would find something he would eat (he's a bit picky). The chef made a lovely plate for my son that he enjoyed and we shared a table a very nice foursome.
Will definitely be back! Excellent spot.
Loved everything! Such a cool place!
Food and service were outstanding. We especially enjoyed the charm and ambiance of this unique location. We ate outside because the weather was nice. However, we were under the flight path to King Co. Airport, which happened to be fairly busy that evening. Besides having to pause our conversation, we adapted well and continued to enjoy ourselves. We will return, but probably eat inside.
Beautiful space and amazing food. I can't say enough. We went on a Thursday for a birthday dinner and it did not disappoint. Next is the Sunday dinner!!
Small, industrial building repurposed into a one of a kind dining location. Very few places have this sort of intimate ambiance. The service was tremendous. Highly recommended - especially for special events.
This is some of the best food I've ever experienced. I try to go at least once a month. My only hesitation is that there is no soundproofing whatsoever, and the room gets very loud.
A wonderful quiet dinner. The food was impeccable!!
This was our second time dining at The Corson Building. In a increasingly expensive and food-fancy city, The Corson Building stands out for exceptional service (this, in particular, really seems to be a struggle for the majority of Seattle restaurants) and delicious, innovative food which---unlike a lot of new restaurants on the scene---exceeds expectations. We will return!
Entering the gates is like entering the garden of a friend's cottage in the countryside. Surrounded by gardens, you nestle into the main eating room, candle lit, very low-key and cozy with a great view through to the kitchen. Very warm and attentive service, and exquisite food. Flavor pairings born of experience, passion and excellent ingredients. So happy to have discovered this place!
My husband and I decided to go here for his birthday dinner because we heard the chef from Sitka and Spruce was also affiliated with the Corson Building (and Sitka and Spruce is our absolute favorite restaurant). The actual space is very charming and perfect for a romantic evening. There were only eight or nine dishes on the menu ranging from small plates to entrees, and we ordered four of them. I would have rated the food five stars, but our main dishes came out lukewarm at best. The flavor combinations were fabulous though, particularly in the rabbit dish. Our waiter was kind, but overall the service was very spotty and we felt as though the other party at our table (they have communal tables) was receiving much more attention than we were. We are generally willing to spend on good food, but given the discombobulated service, I think we will definitely choose Sitka and Spruce in the future.
I would give six stars if I could.
Everytime I come to town, I check out the Corson Building and it never disappoints. The place is a bit private and space is limited. Reservations are a must. Food is always delish though the portion sizes are small for the price. But I love the way the place runs with the open kitchen in the back and the shared seating. Quaint and nice for a special occasion, especially in the outdoor patio.
