Our first time, and came away very impressed. The food and atmosphere were two cuts above, and I'm sure we'll be back for more.

The service was excellent. Wine prices quite high. The food was good. Best meatballs I’ve had at a restaurant. Pasta was good, too.

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!

One of my favorite restaurants in the world. The menu is eclectic and the food and drinks are superb. The blackened prime rib was so good I nearly cried.

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

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.

Myself and a group of friends went for the first time on Saturday night. The ambience is pretty cool and our waitress was spot on with her recommendations. The only thing is some of the pasta dishes were too small , specially for boys, and not many vegetarians options. I would recommend get the seafood dishes instead! Beignets for dessert is a must!

Not as enamored as we've been on our many previous visits. Decent service, always a fun vibe, good drink choices, but food was just average. Maybe they need to step up their game, or perhaps they have so much bat business they no longer care as much about the food..,

Made a reservation for a birthday dinner for 3. Arrived a little early and were seated right away. I am not sure if it is because we were seated near the bar, and we were there during happy hour, but it was a bit loud. The service was okay. We only saw our waitress a few times, but the bus boy and a few other staff members were very attentive. We always had full water glasses, which is something I really appreciate. The food was amazing and the waitress brought out a plate of delicious beingets and a slice of cheesecake for our birthday celebration. While both were amazing, I think we all agreed that the beingets were the best. The coffee sauce that they are served with is amazing! The cheesecake came with a lemon curd-type sauce and some fresh strawberries which were amazing. We ordered the fried green tomatoes with crab for an appetizer, which was incredible. For entrees we had the braised pork and gnocchi, jambalaya, and shrimp with andouille, crawfish, and grits. All were amazing. If you are a like a little heat with your food, I would recommend any of the items we ordered. Not too spicy, but not too not spicy. Definitely will be going again if I am in the area.

First time experience as part of Seattle Restaurant Week, early on a Sunday evening after a Seattle Opera performance. A chef's choices for the prix fixe menu for SRW tell a great deal about her/his point of view. The food at Toulouse was excellent, accurately reflecting the general menu and not down-playing the choices.

There were several bumps in the service that warrant the 'good' rating. We had to request refills of water more than once; we had to ask for appropriate knives for steak; and the staffer who cleared our table did so only one dish at a time, dashing off before the other diners could mention we were also done with a course - a reluctance on his part that would not be out of place in, say, an Indian restaurant, where disinclination to remove anything from the table (no matter how empty the dish or small the table) reaches a height.

That said, the general interaction with the servers was excellent, as was the wine recommendation make by the main one.

I will certainly return!
