I think you should offer a ‘mussels 3 ways’ entree or small plate, a savory
Version of the 3 way creme brûlée.

The food was delicious, the decor was fun, but the light fixtures and floor were dirty and dusty. The wall, ceiling and fixtures all need dusting to make the place shine—candle light was really a nice touch. The service was good.

The staff was amazing and the food even better!! First time there before a concert at Key Arena. I had the shrimp and grits which were perfect. Sister and niece had salmon - again delicious and cooked to perfection. I will definitely go back!

My husband and I with our 2 adult children were visiting Seattle and then went onto Vancouver. This was our best meal of the entire vacation! Everyone’s meal was beyond delicious and flavorful. The portions were great. Our waitress was warm, friendly, funny and helpful. We ordered appetizers and then main courses. The scallops were so sweet. The Brussel sprouts were amazing. We loved it all but couldn’t even finish our dinners but really wanted to!

Huge menu - everything I’ve ever had there is terrific. It can be a little noisy (energetic) which is fine, just don’t go expecting quiet, low key. The food is outstanding. The service was excellent - very efficient and accurate without being in your face.

Reservation special request was met. Service was very friendly, accurate, attentive to our intentions. Food was excellent. Small issue with beignets which had sat too long and arrived a bit soggy. But onion soup, salads, lamb ragu, and chicken were all a treat. They should, however, make Happy Hour menu available to all!

Disappointed. Our food was definitely not freshly prepared. Our order landed in our table in minutes. Mains were put on the table without clearing the plates from the appetisers. No new cutlery. Nothing. The guy didn’t even say anything... the plates hovered over the table and we were surprised that he didn’t clear it first.

The meatloaf was good. The Nola sea salad confusing with blue cheese and olives. Did not go anywhere with a very generic dressing. The appetiser (pork cheek) very small pieces of dry pork meat on bread with strong pickles ruining the taste. We were disappointed, mostly in the service ...

The food was good. Our waitress however came off as a snob. I asked her about light beer she pointed to the menu, and since i didnt live here i didnt know what the beers were so i ended up picking a beer that i knew. She also didnt ask if i wanted another one when i was done. Just came off as a big snob

Very nice different exotic and traditional creole and french meals, it is not like everywhere so you need time to read the menu. Nice wine choices and could be very good ones. This place is not common so it is not cheap, indeed, but you won't be diseapointed if you look for something unsual.

We made reservations at Toulouse Petit Kitchen based on reviews and were not disappointed. The ambiance was energetic, inviting and eclectic. The food was fabulous from appetizers, main courses to delectable desserts. Just a short walk to Key Arena to listen to Andrea Bocelli and our evening was a complete success!

Once seated took 15 minutes for anyone to come to the table and only after spouse asked hostess. Server gave impression that we were a burden. Did not ask any question expect once how was meal or do you want desert.

Last time (1 year ago) we went was great and would have recommend to all our friends. After visit number 2 won't go back, or recommend.

We love authentic cajun cooking and felt our meal was as close to New Orleans as we've found in the PNW. Great Food & ambiance, we will return again and again.

Another incredible dinner experience. We have honestly never had a bad meal here. Made my early Father's Day dinner a pleasure; Gumbo, Shrimp and Grits, and Meatloaf fed my family well.

Our server was a delight; talkative, friendly, and passionate.

Thank you

I was pretty disappointed in this restaurant. We went for a special occasion, as it had been recommended by a friend. The service was very bad (the waitress was sort of hostile), the food was mediocre and overpriced, the décor was creepy, and it was too loud to talk to each other. I can see liking it for the bar or for a different occasion, but I will likely not be going back.

Came here with my family to celebrate my successful thesis defense. I wanted a nice dinner that was still within the $15-$25/plate range and this fit the bill. It was a bit loud and dim lighting made it difficult for my middle-aged parents to read the menu and the bill. Our server was friendly, but wasn't the most attentive. I am grateful for the kitchen staff's willingness to redo a dish to meet allergy restrictions. My partner is allergic to dairy and forgot to specify, assuming the dish was dairy-free via the ingredient list and did not anticipate the parmesan garnish.

My grandma and dad ordered the Creole Wild Prawns and Tasso Linguine and absolutely loved it. They speechlessly devoured their plates and my dad even commented that he could have swam in the sauce. My mom ordered the Jumbo Wild Pacific Shrimp Creole, a rice dish, and enjoyed that as well. My boyfriend and I were less enthused with our dishes. The Foraged Mushrooms with Proscuitto Tagliatelle was flavorless and the Housemade Garlic-Fennel Boar Sausage with Jerusalem Artichokes in a Bright Tomato Sauce was good, but nothing to rave about. We also ordered dessert -- the seasonal sorbet, pecan pie, and beignets. The pecan pie was nontraditional and much more of a cake, which was disappointing. But overall, my family was pleased with the experience and would likely come here again.

The server barely served us. She seemed very busy with other stuff but never stopped by our table. She never introduced us any special menu, nor answered any questions we might have. After we sit down for 20 min, she stopped and asked what we wanted to order. And then disappeared until we needed our check. That’s it. Very bad service.

Food was good but I won’t be going back. I realize I’m a bit particular when it comes to cleanliness but watching wait staff, a bartender and busser pet/hold a dog, not wash their hands and immediately serve food is a deal breaker for me. It’s one thing to bring a dog into a restaurant (I’ll assume it was a “service animal”) it’s another thing to interact with the animal and not be hygienic.
