Delicious food with unique blends of flavors. We got the duck meat gnocchi and hazelnut scallops, but our favorite was actually the mushroom caramel dessert. The mushroom aroma could be made subtle with the ginger and chocolate or very pronounced with just the tapioca.

I love coming here because of the seasonality and variety of the menu from season to season.

As always, great food and great service. Sadly, we were surrounded and in close quarters with people who apparently don’t get out much and don’t have restaurant manners...very loud conversations and disrupting and interacting with others at tables next to them. From under which rock do these people come? I encourage the restaurant to double its prices on holidays like Valentine’s Day in hopes that the crowd can better sort itself. I am quite sure that Tilth would still be booked solid.

Tilth is ordinarily one of the most civil dining experiences in the city. That would seem to be the third leg of its brand stool after quality of food and quality of service. Ambience is perhaps more difficult to control and yet so valuable when found. I hope Tilth can find ways to set expectations in the future. Canlis has done it.

I've never had a meal short of excellent at Tilth, I only ever get the vegan tasting menu and it never fails to satisfy. The cuisine is never particularly adventurous but the execution is pitch perfect every time. Plus, it's pretty much the only restaurant where I can get a truly fine dining experience and eat vegan without having to call ahead and pray the kitchen doesn't just phone it in.

Took my boyfriend here a couple days ago to celebrate his 28th birthday. I was nervous because Seattle was in the middle of a extreme blizzard; Washington had declared a state of emergency and almost all stores and restaurants closed all weekend. Most roads, highways were closed off from the snow and cars were scattered on every street abandoned, unable to drive through the ice. Luckily, we made it to Tilth and were greeted by the most friendly server who was ready for us and took our jackets and settled us in. We had the grand tasting menu and were STUFFED before the end of the meal. I had requested on OpenTable through the comment section that the staff acknowledge my boyfriend's birthday by writing "Happy birthday!" on a plate or light a candle during dessert. They held true to their word and we had a wonderful night. Thank you!

I really wanted to love Tilth for brunch and while the food was tasty, it wasn't exceptional. I also feel like there are other brunch options nearby in Wallingford that served better food at lower prices (Julia's for example). We did go during the big snow though so I feel like maybe they were a little short staffed and the experience and food might have been better if that hadn't been a factor.

We had an absolutely fantastic dinner for my birthday. We had the large chefs menu and we could have been fine getting the regular chefs menu. And we are not small eaters. We also got the wine pairings which were fabulous. We did not leave hungry or thirsty. The tuna course was stupendous. For a special event we would definitely go back. Loved it!!!!!

Tilth is always lovely - the food is excellent, seasonal, & tasty and the service is always helpful, without being overbearing. We sat at the bar this time which meant it was a little louder than it is elsewhere in the restaurant, BUT it's a really fun spot because you can see into the kitchen and experience all the goings-on back there.

This is a place that strives to make magic in everything you eat. Most times they achieve this goal. Every morsel is amazing. The combinations are typically an epiphany. This night (my birthday, which they totally did not acknowledge even though it was listed on Open Table; maybe an Open table faux pas?) everything was as always; amazing except for my wife's entree. A very badly conceived gnocchi with braised duck (almost ZERO duck could be found) in an asian fusion pomegranate seed wild honey mess that was totally inedible. This restaurant prides itself on hand making things so why were all the "home-made" gnocchi all the same size, same shape and all stodgy. My wife ordered a small portion and was billed a large.

Other than this, Tilth is still a place to try.

We enjoyed the cozy ambiance. Service was attentive and friendly without being intrusive. And the food was delicious--from the creamy coconut squash soup to the rich, earthy mushroom risotto and seared scallops! We arrived early, and the room got a bit noisy as it filled up. But we thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. We'll be back--soon!!!

We had eaten at Tilth for dinner a number of times, but had never had their brunch (Saturdays and Sundays). They have a lovely brunch menu, including a prix fix three course meal, which would have been too much food for us. The entrees we ordered were excellent - I had the quiche with blue cheese and a potato crust, C had the wild mushroom omelet. Both were excellent. There are plenty of other things on the menu we'd like to try, so we will be back.

Have had dinner here a couple times, and this was our first brunch. It was immensely enjoyable and I would say I enjoyed it better than dinner, which was a really great experience as well. Love her food sourcing and thoughtful creations.
We tried the orange cranberry muffin (wish the jelly and creams came on the side instead of slathered on) ginger waffle plain (for picky little one), the sourdough French toast, a bit sweet however delicious, the foraged mushrooms omelet (LARGE, should be shared, and the hash.
Every bite was savored or brought home to enjoy later.
Would definitely make this reservation again.

On a drizzly night our group ordered the smaller of the two vegetarian tasting menus. The courses grew from the simple but delicious apple celeriac soup to a gorgeous and flavorful bean cassoulet. Excellent service and a cozy warm setting made for a wonderful evening. And the commitment to local flavors included a Theo Chocolate ganache cake, showing off our favorite fremont factory.

Disappointed on Christmas Eve. My vegetarian wife had one choice, the cassoulet which was tasty but just a bowl of mushy beans with nothing special considering the price. My lamb was excellent but half as much more would have been optimal. The celeriac soup was wonderful but again about 20% more would have made it perfect. The chocolate dessert was excellent. For two of us the bill was $314.45, including a mandatory tip which was without any alcohol. I was on the verge of being hungry. It was good, but the price is high for what you get and it wouldn’t take much to make it right. I have seen many other reviews saying the same. Maybe they should listen.

Very disappointed in our Christmas Eve meal. Incredibly rich, and not in a good way... very heavy butter and truffle tastes stuck around way too intensely. Heirloom bean dish look positively unappealing, and the cheesecake honestly had no flavor, like at all. I expected to pay beaucoup bucks for my dining experience, but I also expected the quality of the food to match the steep price tag.

We ordered the tasting menu with the wine pairings. The portions were perfect, and a couple of the dishes were truly outstanding. Most notable was the arctic char, and everything on the plate was absolutely extraordinary. I felt the pacing was too brisk, with zero time to savor the last sips of wine before the plates were whisked away and the next course served. The sliced rib eye looked perfectly prepared and enticing, but the dish was very disappointing since it was served barely warm instead of hot. Our last experience at Tilth was so memorable that our expectations were high, but this time it was not up to that prior level. Despite that, it was a pleasant evening and our guests enjoyed it.

Food was not not good, but for a 'fine dining' experience with tasting menus with these prices it was really not spectacular at all. Fish and meat dishes were the best, rest was just okay (risotto was actually overcooked). Wine matching was disappointing and some courses where way too big for an 8 course meal (although we note that Americans may disagree with this, but we're used to European standards).

Exquisite. Tilth serves the best food in Seattle. Here's what I wrote for google:
Culinary artistry! The celeriac soup made me swoon. Since when does celeriac soup make anyone swoon? It has the wondrous tang of apple and is poured over a little diced apple and ricotta for extra creamy richness. The char was exquisitely prepared -- so buttery soft but with a perfectly crisp skin like I dream about. It was wonderfully flavorful with its parsnip puree (so smoky, nom nom!) and balanced by broccolini and a slightly citrusy vinaigrette. I would have liked the risotto to be a bit chewier but the flavor was perfection. There's something magical about the combination of the rare ribeye and delicata squash. They made a glorious bite together. And dessert was gorgeous, richly chocolatey with chantilly cream that I won't forget for a long time.
The wines were perfectly paired with the tasting menu. I love that they have multiple options for the tasting menu -- size options and vegetarian choices.
I hadn't been to Tilth in some time, and found myself wondering why. Our server (new to the restaurant) was delightful and a real pro. And I just love the homey but elegant interior. I'll remember to do this more often.
