Had dinner before going to see mama Mia at 5th ave. Wow it is my second time here and the food was just as amazing as the first time. Was with some friends and we all tried each other’s entree and literally everything was delicious. We made reservations knowing how busy it was the last time we came and it was a good thing cause as expected it was just as busy. I had the buttermilk fried petit half chicken. The gravy was so savory and the chicken was well prepared. The entrees were a perfect serving. Everyone finished their plates. We finished our dinner with buttermilk beignets with a coffee syrup and it was absolutely mouthwatering. If I could rate it with happy emoji I would give it a 100 happy faces. It was a little pricey but very well worth it.

My boyfriend and I ate here for the first time while visiting from Los Angeles. Hands down one of the best places we have dined at. I'm big on ambiance and appearance of places we eat. I knew the moment we pulled up on seeing just the outside of the restaurant that it was up my alley. Upon walking in the host was super friendly and our waitress was just on it. The place was packed and our waitress gave us her full attention and her food reccomendations were so helpful. The food was dynamite and the restaurant itself was super unique, with a hip vibe and romantic setting too. We definitely will come here again when visiting Seattle.

I always take out of town guest here as the food is amazing. However, the last few times the service has been terrible. I took some friends last week and the server was very rude. Slammed the coffee and food plates on the table and rudely took all our plates and didn’t ask if we needed them boxed. We spoke to the manager, but didn’t seem like they cared. Excellent food but service is diminishing.

There were four of us, and we batted four for four. Everyone had a wonderfully delicious meal, from appetizers (tuna tartare and a duck terrine) to entrees like the halibut. Let's see: How soon can I get back to Toulouse Petit???

 (Los Angeles)·Dined on January 31, 2018

The food was very average, and considering the price, below average. The server was fairly friendly but the lack of clearing off our dishes was disturbing. I guess the server is not the one who clears things and our starter dishes weren't picked up until we were just about finished with our entrees. I had ordered a hot tea, when the 3 teas selection was brought out I didn't like any so I used a tea bag I had in my purse. The server knew I didn't use any of their tea bags because I asked her to take the plate away and told her I didn't like them. We were still charged for the tea, I guess because I used the hot water. Overall, not a good experience.

Food is excellent. Waitress was rather aloof, but there were six of us. We needed to ask for our check.
The men's room was disgusting. Filthy.

The interior was really nice looking and we were excited for the experience when we sat down with friends. Unfortunately, the service and food didn't live up the ambiance. Servers put the wrong food in front of each diner each time. It took 3 hours (!) to finish our meal as servers disappeared for 30--40 minutes at a time several times -- what exactly were they doing? The place wasn't even super busy. The made our old fashioned with rye instead of bourbon, despite our request for the latter. My french onion soup was thin, lukewarm, with almost no cheese. The rabbit paparadelle lacked flavor or visual appeal. Wanted to like this place so much but the service was so poor and slow, and the food so below-par that I can't say we'll ever go back. Bummer!

Good food and service. Too damned loud to carry on a conversation. No correspondence between the valet parking and the desk. When we arrived, valet took 10 min to appear. When we left it took 15 min for him to appear. Inquiries at the desk inside went unanswered because valet is independent contractor.

We were seated near the front door and next to the window on Queen Anne, should have asked for different seating. Got to see a Lyft rider try and get in the wrong car. Yay. Was humorous, just wrong timing. Halibut was overcooked. The service was terrific and the prawns and andouille sausage in cheesy grits with crawfish were awesome! Drinks were very good.

The bottle of wine came out while we still were working on our cocktails. The dinners came out before our appetizer so we sent that back. When the dinners came out one was incorrect. Now all that said the food was excellent and the staff was on top of the issues to correct quickly. We had the manager at our table apologizing and offered our appetizer free. We didn’t have to complain. They were on it. I would try this place again.

If you're looking for an exceptionally delicious meal, this is one of the best restaurants in town.. The food is always outstanding, from starters to desserts. There is a full bar, and an extraordinary bottled wine selection . The restaurant tends to be loud, so come prepared for that. The service is good, but you might need to prod your server for attention if it's busy. Toulouse Petit also has an incredible brunch on the weekends. For me, the only criticism I have is the (2) television monitors in the lounge showing sports, sports, sports. Give it a rest, Seattle. The restaurant would have a more appropriate and attractive ambiance without them. Regardless, this is a must for a consistently fine dining experience.

All our food items ordeeed were good with the exception of the risotto. It arrived very starchy and or under cooked. The server took it back and it returned piping hot. Possibly microwaved. Not so under cooked but still very starchy. It stuck to your teeth. The halibut, wine, oysters, and dessert were all good. Just steer clear of the risotto. The server removed the dish from the bill, which was nice
