As good as it ever was! With COVID spacing, very comfortable and quiet. A very pleasant place on a lovely afternoon. Menu much like it was before and preparation still thoroughly high quality. Sassy and personable service. The beignets are wonderful, large and filling, and made even better by the whipped mascarpone and rhubarb toppings. The frittata was plate-sized and delicious throughout. The Croque Monsieur tasted of high quality ingredients and was equally delicious.
You will never have a bad meal here. They have very high standards, and sometimes that means your food might take a while, but this is consistently one of the best restaurants in Seattle. They could charge more and get away with it, but the value for quality of food/service is always on point. Go here as often as you can.
Delicious cuisine and delightful service
Perfect brunch spot. Went there to try their Dutch Babies. Fantastic! Exceptional service.
Amazing brunch! And amazing service. Make a reservation far in advance.
A wonderful dinner experience in every possible way
As always, we had a wonderful experience at this restaurant. The food was delicious and service was top notch. Highly recommend it and make the reservation early!
Great Cocktails, wonderful French Onion soup and friendly staff!
One of those places where I want to order everything from the menu. All our food was hot, fresh and delicious.
The food is awesome but there is only indoor seating.
Excellent experience post our vaccinations! I recommend booking now as I believe Seattle knows about this real gem!
Only 7 tables so great for social distancing. We started with a cup of soup which was delicious! Ham hock and kale. We split the TBC breakfast and a lemon Dutch Baby. Really yummy! We also had a bottle of champagne, which was good. The service was honestly outstanding. It ended up being a very special brunch. We will definitely be back.
All of the food is amazing but the French onion soup is the best I have had anywhere, from Europe to Australia and points between.
Tilikum is a gem! Exquisite food, warm servers and atmosphere -- chef-owner Ba Culbert has created a very special place that is a definite must for any occasion!
Everything was absolutely delicious. Delightful evening and need to go back soon!
I’ve been enjoying Ba Culbert’s Tilikum Place Café for years — I’m a Belltown resident and have long made Tilikum my home-away-from-home. From the exquisite food (new out-of-this-world menu addition: meatloaf) to the warm and welcoming atmosphere and people, I was delighted to celebrate my birthday at TPC by dining in after a yearlong pandemic. Every dish is alchemy!
Simply in my mind the consistently best meal in Seattle.
Tilikum Place is one of Seattle’s food gems. The food is excellent, beautifully presented, the wait staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Can’t wait to return.
The food we had for dinner was incredible! One chicken and one fish. It was fabulous and our server was really attentive to our needs.
Excellent meal and service. The food was well done and well portioned.
It was just like before the pandemic but with fewer patrons. Glad to see they have takeout. I'll try that next time
excellent food, great atmosphere, friendly staff.
The amount of food is small, but it is of high quality and is quiet and friendly. It is very regrettable that Dutch Bay is only day-time.
Fabulous food and excellent service. Very prompt. Baked bean dish was ridiculously delicious!
Tilikum never skips a beat. They are on point with ambiance, service and food. I have always had a great experience here.
I loved the smoked salmon quiche. Presentation was great and food was made with good quality ingredients.
Everything is excellent! Anyone choosing to dine at Tilikum Place Cafe will not be disappointed.
Love the warm, comfy atmosphere, excellent food, and THE BEST staff. Always welcoming.
First restaurant meal in over a year! Pricey but absolutely delicious!
We had a fantastic meal and felt like the tables were appropriately distanced.
This is a cozy place with a variety of comfort food, always a pleasant experience to eat there.
Always excellent on every level. Well, could use some old world wines.
A joy to be back at a Tilikum Place! Delicious food, terrific wine, friendly and excellent service for our special trip from Sequim for dinner. This is my favorite dinner option in Seattle, and after a year in shelter, we were not disappointed. The quality is high and the value is more than reasonable. Looking forward to our next visit!
Warm, intimate dining. Excellent, friendly service. Our server seemed to know everyone! Food was delicious and don't miss the array of Manhattans as a cocktail choice.
Food was delicious, service was good, friendly and fast
Great food and atmosphere! The food was unique and flavorful and the staff was wonderful!
Great as always.
Show up early, find parking nearby. Enjoy! Try the baby pancakes!
