We were both underwhelmed with the Seattle Restaurant Week menu and selection. Expecting a bit of showcase for this newer restaurant and the lunch was a bust. In general the food was prepared OK, but having the same vegetables on the appetizer and main course Niscoise plate was awful. The tuna was a bit dry, reflected a canned tuna in dryness if not more. If the salad was intended, it was, but no green beans was the chef’s mistake. Carrots were a poor replacement. The appetizer with carrots, snap peas, fennel etc was great and perfectly prepared, salted seasoned. Tasted great, but then the main course mimicked it enough to lead to disappointment. Maybe I’ll try again, maybe not.

There was a bug in my friend's meal, and the server didn't seem to care. She grabbed a towel and picked it up. She didn't even apologize that there was a bug in my friend's food. Gross.

First time visit during Seattle Restaurant Week. Soo good! great selection, good portions, excellent service, we asked the staff for more info on the delish cooking spices and she came back with all the details on the ingredients and preparation. Very attentive. Large open space felt clean, fresh and authentic. Seating area in the loft good for larger groups. Flowers and baked goods greet you at the door. Highly recommend!!!

The London Plane is one of my favorite restaurants in Seattle. They have many unique dishes, and I almost always bring out of town guests here. It has a great ambience for almost any occasion, and it’s usually never too noisy. Some may find the prices for their dishes and the amount of food on their plate to not be worth it, but their ingredients and the preparation are impeccable and do make it worth the money.

Excellent food & service as usual! However, loud music was played, which we do not remember from previous visits, and which is out of keeping with the style of the venue. And please don’t stop the Plane Breakfast! It was missed.

The pork belly breakfast was difficult to eat - the meat wasn’t broken down properly and was quite chewy. My friend had the semolina pancakes which were heavenly.

I was skeptical to do brunch here based on the reviews, but we t anyways. It was a mistake, the poor reviews are there for a reason. Their “brunch menu” is called the “day menu” it consists of only a few items, it is NOT what it says online.

Lady who sat us was nice. However it took a bit for our server to come greet us. Which in fact he did not greet us at all. He stepped to the side of our 2 person table and stood there very awkwardly not saying a word. I decided to break the ice by asking a question about their menu. He looked at me like I was dumb and basically reread exactly what the menu stated, only adding the word “soft egg”. (Which were not very soft and they were cold) What I had wanted they were out of. So I went with his suggestion after I asked him for one.

My meal came out, a piece of bread with some dark looking marinara sauce on top of, with an egg and a few sliced pieces of Brussel sprouts & cheese slices. I removed the egg from the bread after tasting the sauce, which I did not like. Touched the egg and it wasnt very warm. I slid my plate to the side and did not eat anything. Not one person working there noticed or cared.

While the other person I was eating with was finishing his toast the server came over and asked us how it was. I said I didnt care for the sauce so couldnt eat it. He asked if I wanted anything else and I declined. He took my plate and the other persons, even though he was still eating.

The server brought over our bill, which included an extra charge for a $3.50 “egg” on top of the $14 toast I got that I couldn’t eat. 2 mimosas and 2 egg dishes totaled $58.90.

I was so disappointed none of the servers cared, at his rude approach to our table of not saying anything and not trying any harder to make things right with my meal. Our server created a horrible experience. I will never go back and would advise to skip this place based on service and food. It sucks.

I went here when it first opened and was not that impressed. Some friends wanted to try it and I figured we would give it another go. Our food was wrong and half the entrees came out 10 minutes after the first two. Server explained it that he was quadruple sat. I’ve been a server for many years. If he was quadruple sat he was the most calm and collected quadruple sat server I’ve ever seen or he just didn’t care. Food is okay and the service is terrible. Don’t waste your money. So many other place I would rather go.

Overall the food was good, well prepared and presented but not memorable. We went on a Friday night during the winter and it was pretty empty. I'm sure the lunch atmosphere during the week is much better.

The food we ordered was good but the mid-week lunch menu was very limited and we had a hard time settling on something we thought we would like. It felt more brunch-like in tone. Their bread is wonderful and I love the ambiance and the bright open windows. Service was great too.

The ambiance at the London plane was great and I love the interior, but I didn't have a great experience with the food. I went here for breakfast, during the week, and apparently that's not a great time to go. I had a slice of ginger molasses cake and babka, which were both really good, but I had originally wanted a biscuit with preserves and they were out. I then tried ordering the pourage (it sounded amazing on the menu) and the waiter came back a few minutes later to tell me they were out of that too! There was also a third item I can't remember that I tried ordering from the menu and it hadn't been available in over three months. I couldn't catch a break during my visit here and the coffee was also super bitter.

Go to this restaurant. The chef is destined for greatness. Catch him now.

I rarely leave unanimous 5-star reviews, but The London Plane deserved it. The atmosphere is inviting, and the server was attentive, friendly, and had a great attitude. The food, though, was what blew my mind. This chef produced the most creative, well-executed meal we've had in a long time.

The London Plane offers a three-course dinner with 2-3 choices per course. We ordered everything and boxed up what we didn't eat because the selections were so interesting. The restaurant bakes its bread on site, and it's incredible. We took a loaf home. Our salad was perfect and unusual: the chef could have over-balanced the bitter greens and earthy goat cheese with a vinegar-forward dressing, but instead the dressing was flavor-light until after the rest of the salad left the palette, at which point this wonderful hint of sour remained to brighten it. A thoughtful and varied selection of cheeses with herbed crackers. Charcuterie with duck prosciutto (among other things) and a brilliant pickled fennel and strong stone-ground mustard. Perfectly cooked trout - medium rare with crispy skin well seasoned. Braised beef with a beautiful char, depth of flavor, and accompaniments.

But the potatoes. Of all things, the potatoes. Imagine taking fingerling potatoes and boiling them in salt water until fully evaporated, then adding smoke and other seasonings. These were the best-cooked, most flavorful potatoes I've ever eaten, and the remainder of the plate balanced the salty smoke so the entire dish was irresistible.
