Definitely top three meals of our lives. We ordered the tasting menu with wine pairing. Well worth the price. What a wonderful experience.

It’s quiet, we were seated immediately and there is a lot of care put into the food. Yogurt, quiche, tuna salad were all tasty. Cons - the service is extremely slow. Fine if you are lingering but still a little slow for us, considering how long our coffee was empty. My waffle was dry to borderline inedible. We will try one more time.

My mom and I shared a large summer squash salad, and two small plates: the pan roasted halibut, and the lamb loin. Each dish was absolutely fabulous; cooked to perfection and accompanied by sides and sauces that made the dishes sparkle with flavor. Best of all we still had room for dessert - and can highly recommend the Theo's chocolate cake and the strawberry shortcake. A fantastic dining experience.

We have never had a bad meal here. It’s always solid, delicious, seasonal and fresh. I took my husband here to celebrate a work milestone on a weekday and it was pleasantly quiet. Small note: We barely drink but did want a sip of wine and they were happy to accommodate us with a half glass.

Always a great experience! We had the five course tasting menu with wine pairings, and everything was delicious, as always. I will say that they used to give us little bags of their granola at the end of the meal, but they haven't done that in a while. It was a super nice extra that I miss. That's literally my only complaits. Everything was great, and the service is exceptional.

I brought my family here who were visiting from out of town. We had a vegetarian and gluten allergy in our party and everyone was able to eat fully and beautifully. Andre was our server and he was fantastic; knowledgable, personable, warm and funny. I love this restaurant and can't wait to come back and taste more goodness!

Truly enjoyed every aspect of our special-occasion dinner. From the moment we entered the restaurant we were invited to take our time, savoring the lovely soft and warm decor, get guidance from our server on food and drink selections, the nicely paced service and the delicious food, so attentively prepared. Standouts for me were the burrata, summer squash salad, bread with cultured butter, octopus, lamb, and lavender creme brûlée.

Food quality was very good, except tuna in the salad had too much of that plastic-y connective tissue tuna is known for. Tasted fresh and good, just unappealing texture. Cheeses we had were very good. Wife liked the risotto very much, but it was a bit bland for my taste and I'm glad I didn't order it. Cocktails were very good. Overall impression was good. The place is packed very tightly with tables and you'll be sitting very close to other diners, so don't expect any privacy. We knew what to expect, price-wise, but thought the prices were still a bit high considering the portion sizes. We did not leave the place hungry, but maybe choose another destination if you're *really* hungry, or are semi-to-very wealthy. We might go back again sometime, but it's not really a "new favorite."

We had a long leisurely dinner with old friends from out of town. We have eaten at Tilth in the past and have never been diasappointed. We also like that it is a quiet restaurant where it is easy to converse. The food has always been superb but I have to say that this most recent visit was one of the finest meals I have had in Seattle. The four of us shared the Hors d’Oeuvre, Northwest artisan cheeses, Endive salad, mini duck burgers, pan roasted halibut and one desert of Rhubarb crisp. More than enough food and we all bonded over having the same meal. I don’t drink but my wife and friends shared two bottles of a German Pinot Noir Rose’ which they said was outstanding and paired well with our meal. Our server Melissa was informative, attentive, paitient and thorough. She intuitively paced our dinner in the somewhat slow manner we desired. The night was outstanding.

We got a baby sitter and went on a date night out. Food and service were just OK, for the price I was expecting much more. I left feeling very underwhelmed and wished I had made a different reservation.

The appropriate dress code of this restaurant is casual as is the appearance of the restaurant but the service is anything but casual. You wait in the entry for them to check your reservation at the opposite side of the house, the wait staff are very formal and efficient but friendly. The food was really good and the portion size is good. It's nice they give you the option of a half or a full serving for different budgets because it is on the pricey side. Overall we had a very enjoyable evening.

The waiter suggested a return trip for dinner, which I may do. I had much higher hopes for Mother's Day Brunch, however, the execution left some things to be desired:
- Baked Eggs were VERY runny
- Smoked Salmon eggs Benedict was replaced with pork belly (and no explanation?!)
- Ran out of Orange Juice

I have read about this restaurant and it had been on my “go to” list for some time. It was Mother’s Day brunch so the option were limited. My friend and I each ordered different items. I thought I would share but everything I ordered was so outstanding that I couldn’t share. My friend felt the same way. The food was fresh, well seasoned and beautiful to look at. I’m anxious to come back and try the regular menu!!

We tried the 5-course tasting menu & each dish was well-prepared and high quality but the pacing was so slow! After finishing each dish we waited about 20 minutes for the next one, and the whole meal took almost 2.5 hours. I can definitely enjoy a long leisurely meal but there was just not enough food and too much waiting for it to be very enjoyable. It wasn’t super busy either. Disappointing for a $250 meal. Maybe ordering from the ala carte menu would be a better way to go.

Made a reservation for birthday dinner. We arrived about 20 min early but were seated right away. We had the 5 course tasting menu w paired wines. Everything was delicious and many dishes were a celebration of spring, e.g. green risotto w peas, green leek soup poured from a teapot. Everything was beautifully plated and memorably delicious. Waiter wished me a happy birthday and brought chocolate dessert w a candle. Ended w lavender meringue and a glass of port. Wish I could have dinner here every week!

The food at Tilth is always wonderful . I have never had anything to eat that was not the best. The duck sliders are worth the drive. It tends to be too noisy, which is the only negative comment. Service is great. The food is local and organic. Kudos to the chef!
