Amazing fare in this bustling joint. Superb and attentive service. Especially loved the wonderfully flavored fried chicken, but all dishes were winners.

Had a fantastic dinner again at Toulouse Petit! Love the ambiance (how can you not like all the lit candles on the walls) as well as the food! Recommend to anyone looking for a nice place for a night out!

This is a good spot, although I have to wonder why it has been named one of the 10 most favorite restaurants in the US (pretty lofty praise). The menu is quite creative and the food a cut above normal--worth the effort to seek it out.

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.

Toulouse Petit specializes in flavorful, spicy food, so we didn't hold back! This was the first time I tried their banana cream pie...MMMMM, it reminded me of the pies my mom used to make!

I had so been looking forward, I live in DC and it's been one of my favorite Seattle places, but I was disappointed this time. The beignets were too well done, the wait staff not very helpful.

Service was good, food was ok to fair. I think they may have too many items on their menu. The food was either over or under seasoned. Nothing really was a hit:(

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.

Just fantastic, every time we go (which is just once or twice a year). My favorite food is Louisiana/New Orleans/Cajun food, and this is the closest you can find to it around Seattle. Great atmosphere and soooooo good.

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

The food was yummy, especially the filet mignon and garlic boar sausage. I would skip the flourless chocolate cake because it's got orange flavor in it and I don't care for that. The margaritas were outstanding.

Located close to McCaw Hall which made it perfect for dinner before attending The Nutcracker. We enjoyed the beautiful tea lights in holiday colored glass candle holders. Food was delicious and menu was interesting - a lot of choices. Service was attentive. A very nice dining experience!

For the high cost - you'd expect great or even outstanding service. I had to on several occasions track down our server or someone. After we got are meal we never saw our server again until we went and found him. Upon exiting the restaurant the hostess didn't even look up from your cell phone to thank us for coming. No manager came around to see how our meal was... Super disappointing...

Staff were ok. Waitress wrote all the orders right in front of us, which we thought was kind of tacky, but she was nice (although kind of weird). Food was ok. Portions were good but the food wasn’t amazing. Prawns with the spicy tomato sauce was delicious!

Overall a good experience.

Celebrated wife's birthday with sons. Had 3 starters, Marcona Almonds Valenciana, Castelvetrano olives in Calabrian cure and cheese plate, all wonderful. Three of us had different steak options all fantastic flavor, cooked perfectly and great sauces, one son had Toulouse Wild Boar and Lamb shoulder Bolognese. My son insisted I try his Bolognese, wow! We have been to this restaurant 3 times now, always consistent spectacular food and service. We love the vibe and décor of this restaurant, highly recommend!!!

Very nice atmosphere with impressively large menu. I had the porterhouse pork chop that was delicious...very moist and not overdone - smothered in grilled Brussel sprouts and pancetta. My wife had the halibut which was excellent. All the entrees seemed reasonable priced for an upscale restaurant. Wine list seemed a bit sparse but we found a bottle we liked.

All in all a wonderful experience and we definitely would go back.

We (party of 4) really enjoyed the entire evening: food was delicious and interesting, friendly service, lively crowd, and great ambience. We needed a place for an after theater meal, and Toulouse Petit was just right...they held our table until 9:30, as the play ended late. We would all come here again

 (Seattle)·Dined on November 20, 2017

We had a reservation and were seated quickly, but the service was exceedingly slow. Granted, the restaurant was busy, but we went for stretches of 30 minutes or more without seeing our server, and attempts to flag her (or anyone else) down were unsuccessful for the most part. We didn't even order our meals until we had been seated for nearly an hour. Our server was unapologetic except for a very brief "thanks for your patience" at the very end, mentioning that everyone had arrived at once. Food was OK, but nothing to warrant a special trip. My "medium" burger was tasty but well done. The bun was soggy with tomato jam, probably because it sat around for a long time before being delivered to the table. Fries were crispy and delicious, if only they weren't absolutely covered in salt. I might give this place another try, particularly the Jambalaya and steaks looked good, but I won't be rushing back.

We enjoyed the ambiance- it feels elegant and romantic. My husband enjoyed his shrimp and grits meal but I was very underwealmed by the rabbit pappardelle. It felt like the chef forgot to salt it and it seemed very bland. I took most of it home so I could doctor it up with some spice. Not thrilled to have to do that for a $17 meal.

Atmosphere is incredible, not sure there's anything else in Seattle like it. It's sexy and moody yet lively and happening. The lit candles around the perimeter of the room help with that. The food is good, a big variety, but the service was annoying. The waiter was very business-like and made us feel very rushed. He seemed stressed out and irritated. I would've appreciated a more relaxed, friendly server. He also got our dessert wrong HOWEVER he did apologize and fix it right away.
