I love London Plane. On this particular visit, the quiche was a bit dry but still tasty. The vibe, the service, the ambience--all top notch.

I've been here many times and enjoyed it. However today the menu was sparse and the soup I ordered was cold and barely curried. Really disappointing and a very much diminished experience to prior visits. There are now so many great choices in and around Pioneer Square, so I'm surprised to see this change.

I love this place. The staff is great and the service is fantastic. Although, I find that their food is under seasoned and on my last visit my meal was surprisingly over salted and I love salt. I am just confused.

Nice place, energetic atmosphere, great location. The toast I ordered was good, but not exceptional. My friends ordered a salad that they didn’t enjoy as much due to its bitterness. One of the friends provided feedback on the salad, and they took it off her check. Good overall service!

Sunday 11:45am reservation... big mistake. I’m thinking of trying this place again earlier than 11am. The place was packed and noisy. There was times when I couldn’t here my friend talking.

Then... the long wait... 45~55 minutes to get our orders on table? Food... cold... Jesus! Waiter gave us cookies to apologize for the long wait.

First experience- big disappointment however the interio ambience was impressive, except for the noise level.

Good food but way too expensive for the actual amount of food you get in your plate, i starved all day. There is no ice in the water which is very appreciable when it is so cold outside.
The restaurant is noisy but the interior decor very nice.

There should be a line around the block every weekend for brunch at London Plane. It is a best kept secret in Seattle. Excellent cuisine and amazing atmosphere. With a glass of wine during a late lunch with the sun shining through the big windows, one feels more like they are in Paris than Seattle...

Overpriced. The duck breast I ordered came with a side of sautéed kale -- a sodium bomb with absolutely no attempt at a proper garnishment.

We we're disappointed in the food for the cost. Beautiful presentation but the taste was lacking flavor. Little sauce to go with dry raw mushrooms. Left them on my plate. Too many good restaurants downtown to spend $100. at. Probably won't go back.

We had been here for coffee earlier in the day & really liked the atmosphere. Our food was delicious, three of us had the cod and one the steak. Two had a dessert & said it was delicious. The portions were not huge but food excellent & imaginative.

Thr lack of experienced staff made this meal a very disappointing one. The pastry was great, but the hot food was close to cold. We waited 15 min before was served and another 20-30 min food to arrive, and there were only one other table when we were there. The place is pretty but I would not come here to have sit down meal again.

Went for weekend brunch with friends early afternoon on a warm day. Patio seating was perfect but inside might have worked as well isn't it looked roomy and bright inside too.
We all ordered different types of dishes with a thick slice of bread and toppings. We all agreed that they were overpriced for the amount and the labor for the preparation... I'd try other "cooked" dishes for over $12 ones, or try their baked goods that were mostly sold out when we got there.
Some dishes were sold out, so better get there earlier and reservation is highly recommended.

Chicken was dry and fish was a little under cooked. I know it's supposed to be barely cooked but cod should still flake and it was borderline raw/ difficult to cut. Expected more from a Matt Dillon gem!

The service was great and they offer a lot of delicious shareables for brunch featuring unique flavors. The only thing I would recommend is to put a sign in your opposite location; we thought it was closed despite having reservations. The staff was very accommodating during a busy game day rush and the food was a welcome change to the usual pallet. Fresh, different and more "Real" than the typical Pioneer Square find.

The ambience is perfect. Very Seattle. Corner restaurant with pottery and flowers and cards and baked goods scattered around and for sale. The food was inventive and delicious, but the plates were very small for the price. My main dish tuned out to be a small salad. It was delicious but more a starter. And since our food arrived more than an hour after we sat down, I didn't have the time or energy to order more. If you have no place to be and aren't that hungry you should try this place.

We arrived on time . Nice server. Drink order taken. Drinks came. Lovely. Food order taken. And then crickets. 40 minutes went by without food. Thank god for the blueberry coffee cake did show . Only one had ordered it but we 3 shared! By the time the tiny, meager portions arrives we were drunk. And the food was forgettable. Nice staff. Lovely environment but service and food were barely ok.

The menu and service are somewhat "precious" -- trying too hard to be "special." Our team of servers mistook one drink order and never brought another. I expressed surprise that such a carefully curated list of beverages includes only one black tea -- Early Gray, which some folks really do not like.

Quiet Saturday night - not very busy - but good food and service and always great ambiance. I've been many times for lunch or brunch when it was super crowded so it was nice to have a more relaxed atmosphere although it was so quiet it was almost dead. What a miss for potential diners! Great spot!
