    Absolutely one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. We've been to the Corson Building for both the A La Carte (1) and Prix Fixe (2). The Prix Frixe experience was so much better. We did the wine pairings both times and that was quite an experience. For the Prix Fixe experience, you need to be comfortable sitting at a community table and talking with someone you don't know. On both occasions, we had amazing table neighbors that made the experience even that much better.

    Winter is inside time and it's hard to keep an inside voice when good food and drink abound as it did Saturday evening at The Corson Building. It was our first time eating here, a Valentines dinner for my husband and I. We were greeted by the owner Matthew and handed a sparkling apertif . He had called the day before to see if there were any dietary restrictions which I thought was quite the personal touch. He also stressed "doors open at 630pm" . We sat in our car for a bit having arrived early and rain in a state of downpour. Family seating is the name of the game. We were at a 10 top and enjoyed meeting our fellow diners. I wasn't too sure about the family style initially but it was quite lovely. The chef and her assistants created scrumptious plates beginning to end. My husband and I left satisfied and satiated. We will return with the sun and warmth to take advantage of the outdoor seating. It looks lovely out there.

    This is my favorite restaurant in Seattle, the setting/ambience is SO lovely, the food is INCREDIBLE, and it's always a fun social experience with the staff and the other guests. Seriously, nothing I ate tasted good the next three days after I ate here. The staff is so nice and welcoming, they helped my family identify a random herb the found outside in the garden. Being greeted with a cocktail is nice too. I can't wait to take a bunch of family and go back in the summer!

    The food is unfailingly delicious, invintive and unusual in it's ingredients. The wait staff are gracious, knowledgable, patient and understated. The building is a cross between a french and italian farm house with nice touches here and there without being fussy. I have never been disappointed.

    Really wonderful taste profiles. Sophisticated menu. Wines are pretty pricey though. Our waiter was really focused on other tables so that was a bit frustrating (about 20 minutes between our entrees being cleared to him coming back to drop dessert menus, for example).

    The whole experience is unique and I do recommend trying out the Corson Building. The food was nothing less then delicious. We loved the prex fix menu and family style eating. Service started out strong but fizzled to nothing by the end of the meal, to the point where we had to go find him to get our bill, and then again to get our visa receipt to sign. The acoustics are terrible, especially if there are some raucous guest as there was the night we decided to go. The small space and brick walls are not conducive to really hearing each other, which is something our family actually likes to do. But the food was amazing and a couple of bottles of wind come to the table as included in the price of the prex fixe, even without ordering the wine paring. Which ended up being perfect for us. I would definitely return in the summer months when we could sit outside in the exquisite garden.

    Went there for our anniversary. We found The Corson Building charming. The service was attentive and professional, and the food divine. Every dish we ordered surprised us with its creativity and depth. As everyone has mentioned, it is communal seating, which to us was a little strange at first but quickly ceased to matter. We will be back!

    We enjoyed the thought put into every bite of food. Very artistic food combinations with a lot of attention to texture and flavor pairings. We ate the best lemon tart I’ve ever had. The one thing that was just okay for me was the seating. There are two long farm-style tables with multiple parties seated at each. The evening we were there it was mostly couples including me and my husband. We sat in very friendly proximity to another couple and it was hard to have an intimate conversation without listening to the adjacent couple’s conversation.

    We had an incredible evening. There were 6 of us; because of the communal seating, there were an additional 4 people at our table - part of the fun was getting to know them! We had course after course of amazing food - lamb served two ways, some amazing seared scallops, a spectacular lemon tart. Special dishes (also fabulous) came out for those with more restricted diets. It’s a splurge - but well worth it!

    The Corson Building is one of those hidden gems that people hope to find before it becomes so popular that you cannot get into it and LONG before the staff starts leveraging their reputation at the expense of their kitchen to fill the house. Truly an exceptional experience with a perfect blend of 5-star service and food blended with a warm, come-as-you-are ambiance which is perfect for everything from a romantic dinner to a pre-theater treat. Great for groups or special events, the quality and creativity of the food is surpassed only by the wine list -- as a life-long foodie, I can say without reservation that every dish was a delight and a few were truly exceptional. Run, don't-walk, to the Corson Building. You will be glad you did!

    I'd been wanting to go here a long time. We went on a Sunday night for the prix-fixe dinner. The food was good, but a bit too repetitive. The fish course was incredibly good, but the rest was not at that level. Our main complaint was the noise level: it became physically painful to be there as people resorted to shouting louder and louder to get heard which then just ramped it up to the next level for them to have to shout louder. I think I would like to try it again when it is warm enough to eat outside.

We told them of some food allergies ahead of time, they did an excellent job accommodating! The atmosphere was nice and quaint. Would definitely recommend and would definitely go back!

    This was our first time at the Corson Building. Matthew was very accommodating and friendly (owner). The menu is small but delicious. We shared 2 appetizers with 5 of us and we each had our own entree. It was more than enough. It's a small, cozy hard to find place in Georgetown but we will definitely be back. The tables are designed to hold around 10 people so we shared a table with another group. It really didn't matter at all as we were able to converse with our group very well.
