    The hotel restaurant area was very nice. Water view. The food was fair with very long delays between courses. The wait staff was personable but not on top of refilling water or coffee. The food was not hot enough. The deviled eggs were the best part of brunch. Desserts were very good. Easter brunch was not worth the money. Room service cheeseburger and fries were delicious. I have a moderately sophisticated palate and this and the service delays did not meet my expectations.

    The ambience is amazing! The food was good. The service was below average. The staff was friendly but very slow, drinks came out five minutes apart from each other, staff didn't check on us and then came and gave us the bill even though we wanted more drinks and coffee. I will go back but the service needs to improve.

    Mixed reviews, because I had heard such amazing things about this place, the views were spectacular, the food was great, and I really enjoyed my first server - he was lovely! As I was finishing up my meal, though, a new server replaced him and asked if I needed my sandwich boxed up. Yes, please, thank you, how nice! However.. after she grabbed my plate, she proceeded to check on a man at a nearby table, asked if he was all done with his food, and then I witnessed her stack his plate on the same arm as mine! His plate was literally dripping down into my plate. Unfortunately, I am appalled, disappointed and disgusted and will not be able to enjoy the second half of the grilled cheese I bought. Isn’t there a segment about cross contamination when you take your food worker card test? It is extremely unsanitary, especially for a nice restaurant like this and with covid still lurking around.

    The views did not disappoint and the restaurant felt very welcoming (not pretentious). We only ordered the muscles and kimchi grilled cheese for lunch. The portions were good and the food tasted great! Don’t worry about not getting a window seat, the restaurant has plenty of windows for you to experience the glasshouse feel.

    We’ve been many times, and both food and service are consistently great. We happened to be in celebrating my husband’s 55th birthday. Both the hostess and waiter noted that - it’s that sort of attention to detail that makes a difference. We will definitely return!

    Did the prixe fix menu, the dining room is gorgeous with amazing views. Service was very attentive. I believe the waiter was French (didn’t quite catch his name) was very friendly, and allowed for accommodation for a food allergy. Really raised the experience. Food while generally good was mixed. Some dishes I loved others I was mixed about. I’d come back though, especially as it looks like the menu changes.

    The food was mediocre for a upscale restaurant. The window seat view of the city was beautiful. The setting was romantic and there were two gentlemen playing jazz throughout the night. I would give it 5 stars if the food was better but they have great drinks.

    We had an excellent brunch at Charlotte. The only disconcerting things were that the coffee was not piping hot and also two of us had ordered crab toast and were surprised that it was served cold. Even the soft cooked eggs on top were cold. In spite of being cold it was still delicious. We loved the ambiance as we had a table right next to the window with a grand view of the Seattle waterfront and to the south to the Smith tower and the sports arenas. Our waitperson was attentive and efficient . One last thing, the bill includes a 20 percent service charge so keep that in mind when considering a tip. And finally we split the bill between two cards. One card was charged 1/2 but the other was going to charge for the full amount. We pointed this out to our waitperson who was very embarrassed by the error and corrected in immediately .

    Lovely view. Decor is a bit cold and cafeteria like for my taste. Uncomfortable chairs. Cool bar. Lots of groups in the bar so service was so slow ( 25 minutes to get a drink). My Seabass was excellent, Kale and Broccolini salad was unimaginative and bland. Red Velvet cake was a great surprise. Sold out of the short rib which sounded good. Service was slow. Took over an hour for food to come out. So overall I was pleasantly happy with the food but not the ambience or service. Many will love it. Some will find it pretty good. Unsure if I would go again
