We attended during Seattle Restaurant week. The food was phenomenal and the service was impeccable. I've found other restaurants to be brusque and hurried during this event and Tilth was classy and surpassed my expectations. I will be bringing clients, visitors and family back again and again.

Everything was fine but nothing really stood out or was outstanding - food or service. I’m glad I tried this place for Seattle Restaurant Week since I’ve been meaning to go for a while but I probably won’t be returning since it’s normally on the pricier end yet nothing was very memorable.

Delicious and interesting food. Tried five dishes (including dessert) and none were less than "Very Good". A good place to go for the adventurous: There are both exotic ingredients (new to me, at any rate...); plus interesting preparations of familiar ones--the roasted carrots and cauliflower with caraway seeds were both amazing. The vegan "cheesecake"--lavender flavored--was a marvelous discovery for dairy-intolerant folks like us . Will be returning as often as we can afford to :-)!

The food, as always, was exquisite in preparation and presentation, and the dining room is one of the loveliest in Seattle. But the food was bland. The roasted cauliflower dish had a green "harissa" but with no discernible spice, nor enough of it to cover each piece of cauliflower; so we both added salt to give it flavor. The gnocchi was bland, too, as was the pork chop. Of course pork chop is always rather bland if there's no punchy sauce, which there wasn't. Knowing that the chef has acquired a bland palette AND under-sauces each dish, I think we'll go elsewhere (e.g., Joule) for flavor.

The pork was amazing! Looked like the size of the piece of pork was different on each plate, but it was so delicious it doesn't really matter.

Most dishes were great, a couple were just a bit too herb heavy that they came off a bit soapy

It happened to be restaurant week, so my boyfriend and I got different options and shared it all. Everything was fresh and delicious and interesting and beautifully plated. And maybe it’s just because we come from NYC, but it was incredibly reasonably priced ($35 for 3 courses). Highly recommend!

I love Tilth and it will always be a special occasion place for our family and friends. Typically we go for dinner this was our second time going for brunch. The food was perfect and the ambiance always comfortable and pleasant. What was disappointing was the service from our server. Unsure if he was in a bad mood or distracted but he definitely did not provide the service we have come to love from Tilth. A few mishaps with placing the wrong plates at the wrong places which honestly not a huge deal. When dining with you we have always had fabulous servers who really connect with you and have good conversation with. He didn’t try at all to connect with any of us. Seemed annoyed if we asked for something and didn’t check on us after the food arrived. Again not a huge deal but what we have always loved about Tilth, besides the delicious food is the spot on service that came with it. Unfortunately you guys missed the mark this past weekend. We will be back but would love to have a different server!

The restaurant was a quaint and beautiful one. I felt the staff was a bit rude. We were greeted by two hosts - a lady and a man. The lady was very kind all through the experience and gave us a warm experience. For some reason, it came off like the man was a bit conceited and disinterested in the way he spoke with us. Good service and a welcoming atmosphere is paramount to a good experience and i felt like this restaurant lacked it. I would advice the person (I don't know if he was the owner) to be more cognizant of how he greets people.

Consistently great dining with generous and creative menus. I love the setting in an old Seattle Craftsman home. It is quite popular and often quite crowded. For me the two primary negatives are the tables are too close together almost elbow to elbow and the noise level. One other thing: the print on the menu is really tiny and the lighting is low. I'd recommend more contrast on the menu and larger font!!

So, I try to select a day where there is likely to be more room. Love the place!!

The foraged mushroom omelette is what made us return. It is cooked perfectly and the mushrooms are the best we have ever had. Everything tasted so fresh and delicious! My son insists that the peanut butter waffle with pomegranate and maple ricotta can't be beat! The service is also great and atmosphere very comfortable. It's our favorite Seattle brunch!!

Food was excellent, but not really worth the experience. Notwithstanding a reservation, we were asked to wait on an unheated porch with minimal information as to when our table would be available. After getting quite chilled and complaining that their "sun" porch is cold, we were moved into the bar to wait until our table was ready - 25 minutes after our reservation. Eventual table was so cold my wife needed to wear her coat indoors. Waiter explained that we were near an air return and it would be cold - and they would not be doing anything to improve our dining experience. (Many empty tables by the time we left but they never offered to relocate us...)

When the final bill eventually arrived, $10 was taken off with no explanation. So, I guess they understood that it was not an ideal dining experience. Nonetheless, from the host, to the manager to our eventual waiter, we encountered an attitude of indifference that bordered on callousness. Food was good, attitude from the the personnel we encountered was unpalatable.

We were celebrating our son’s birthday. We have always enjoyed the food at Tilth. They were at the forefront of the farm to table trend. My husband and I started with a delicious cocktail. The 4 of us shared several appetizers. The beet tartare was outstanding , on a cauliflower horseradish purée. Excellent burrata as well. Our least favorite were the hush puppies. There was an excellent coconut squash soup. The main courses were excellent as well. Our son had scallops, his girlfriend seared tuna, my husband the gnocchi with braised duck, and I had the pork cheek which was served with wonderful baby carrots and turnips. We shared the best tapioca pudding ever, as we were all full at that point. A good, reasonably priced wine list as well.
