We spent $100 on stake, rice and ONE drink. Cute little place, but food and drinks were way over priced for what it was. I was expecting a ton of flavor and everything just fell flat. Pretty bland unfortunately.

It's a small place, but very good. There were 2 empty tables that were reserved the whole time we were there (5:30-7pm) but they were turning people away at the door. Odd.

I would recommend the Loft in Edmonds for any occasion. I especially like the cozy yet sophisticated environment. The food and service were both amazing. The appetizers were large portions and the shoe string truffle fries and roasted brussel sprouts are my new favorite!

Granted the Seahawks were playing Monday night football, but we didn't expect the game to be going upstairs in the dining area, especially since we were the only ones in the small area. Hence the lower rating on ambiance.

I wanted to have a charcuterie board and salad for dinner along with a nice cocktail and choice of wine; Loft Cafe +Social Lounge was the perfect place. Good food and drink with a fun atmosphere.

We frequent The Loft every couple months or so. Servers have engaging personalities.

Sometimes the music is obnoxious. On our last visit the youngest customer was in their 40’s and two couples in their 60’s yet the staff played drum-machine techno music that made the evening less enjoyable. Catering to customers instead of to staff would help to ensure customers come back.

Our server, Hannah, was amazing!!! Her timing was perfect. She made good recommendations and was friendly and accommodating. I wish happy hour could be served upstairs - I wish I’d known before sitting that happy hour is only downstairs because our group was meeting for happy hour. But it worked out - the space is beautiful.

The Loft is a cool place. Have been there a few times. Food is great and the atmosphere is laid back and cozy.
The service is slow. This time it seem too busy, but actually took 3 hours from when we sat down until we got the bill.
Great place, but don’t go there if you’re in a hurry

Great food and service. Half-price bottles of wine on Wednesday, which is a great deal. Only problem was the noise level. The noise from the bar carried into the dining area and was quite loud. We plan to go back when we can sit outside. Awesome menu.

Great bar-only, Happy Hour experience. Ordered truffle fries, chicken wings, and the Wagyu sliders—all were delicious, but a special call out to the sliders. Yummmm!

Awesome. We went for the first time during Seattle Restaurant Week. $35 for 3 course meal. The menu is limited to 3 choices each course. The food we had was very good. We’ll be back! The menu looks amazing!

We haven't dined at The Loft for a long while, due to Restaurant Week we decided to try them again. We had an excellent dinner. The wait staff did a great job. Niko made sure we were well taken care of. We will definitely go back.

Our first time at The Loft, will definitely go back again. Excellent service and food. We had the short ribs and the cod, a side of roasted brussel sprouts, crème brulee for desert. Too much food to finish, have another meal we took home with us.

Very enjoyable ambiance. Although romantic the loft is up a steep stair case so be careful. Service was very good in spite of staff having to go up and down many times. Even water was refilled often. Nice cloth napkins and table settings. We arrived early for our reservation and they went out of their way to seat us right away. The menu is interesting and I recommend the gnocchi. Prices are moderate so not an inexpensive dinner out. The only misstep was my martini. I requested Blue Sapphire and got Tanqueray. Lots of good restaurants in Edmonds so nice to see they are working hard to earn another visit from us.

We enjoy the food at The Loft, but do feel that some of the dishes are a bit overpriced, especially the short rib. The octopus was delicious, but the burgers were each done one level above what we requested. The medium rare was medium and medium came medium-well. The Loft is noisy, to the point of unpleasant at times, so if you are looking for quite conversation, it is best to come at an off hour. The service is always top notch!

Small space, squeezed together bar seating (cozy). Excellent service from bartender and server. We sat in the bar during happy hour and had apps & cocktails for a meal. Everything was delicious, drinks were perfect. A little speedy but what isn’t these days? A romantic spot or a great place to have a drink with friends. No kids!! 🙂
