Despite the limited seating and limited menu in our Phase 2 environment , the staff combined to make a pleasant Friday night date night experience . Thank you for a great meal.
This is my favorite restaurant in Seattle and never disappoints. Food and drink are great and staff are wonderful.
This restaurant is a Seattle treasure. Solid food that’s inventive and interesting. Great variety. Good wine selection and excellent cocktails.
Incredible service and good - will definitely be back!
Great service and very delicious food. Nice bistro ambience and not overly expensive. Well located on a quiet side street yet close to all downtown attractions.
Menu was not extremely extensive, but the good was top-notch quality. Service outstanding, nice atmosphere. First time we ate there - there will likely be many future times.
We had a lovely time celebrating a birthday over brunch. The food was so scrumptious and we enjoyed the casual yet charming atmosphere. It’s such a pleasure to be in a space not over designed. The savory Dutch baby was a hit and the plate with roasted tomatoes, beans, bread, bacon, and eggs waste super tasty too. We can’t wait to try lunch or dinner here too!
If the first reservation is at 11:00, it might be appropriate to open your doors 10 minutes early or have your first reservation at 11:15. The bread for the daily sandwich is good but so tough it’s not really sensible to eat as a sandwich. And the chicken salad sandwich was more of an Apple salad sandwich in my opinion. The pastrami hash was delightful and beautiful! And the mushroom soup was amazing with the clove in there, loved it!
Great food, friendly service! I’ll definitely be back!
I love this spot. Our server, Matthew, was outstanding. He was attentive And his descriptions of the dishes were outstanding. The food is amazing and I can’t say enough positive things. Come here it’s the best
I’ve been many times for brunch and it’s never disappoints! I always bring my out of town guests and it’s always a highlight in their trip!
Tilikum is always in my top five Seattle restaurants. I hadn’t been for awhile, but it was just as good as ever and the ambiance is perfect. The salads are amazing and creative, I had the brussel sprout salad with kalamata olives and a yogurt dressing...so good! If the special entree doesn’t interest you the chicken is always fantastic. Oh, and the bartenders really know what they’re doing at Tilikum!
Service was impeccable. Food delicious. Small restaurant with warm, friendly vibe
We ate at Tilikum place for our daughter's 10th birthday. We ordered the classic Dutch baby, the sweet Dutch baby, baked eggs, coffee, juice, and a bloody Mary. Everything was exceptional and the servers were attentive and friendly. If we still lived in the area, we would be regulars. Seriously one of the best breakfast spots we've visited and we have traveled frequently. Love the baked eggs!!
It’s always great to go to a favorite place and be treated like a member of the club. We had a delicious meal sitting in our preferred spot at the bar. Both the food and the ambiance are so “French Bistro” that you really feel like you’ve been someplace else.
This place might literally be the perfect ‘neighborhood restaurant.’ The place you look forward to returning to and feel welcome every time you walk through the door. Love it.
Wonderful evening, with great food and fantastic service as always. Excellent menu at the moment, rabbit was particularly good
Chef changed the cream cod sauce to vegan for me. excellent food and accommodation
We love Tilikum Place for our special occasions. The staff is fantastic and if you have questions about the menu, they describe things to a T.
A hidden gem . Let’s keep it a secret ;-)
This place never disappoints! There were four of us and every entree was excellent. Don’t miss the Brussels sprouts!
Loved this cozy brunch spot! Great service and exceptional brunch. Best morning meal in the last year, we’ll definitely be going back.
Had breakfast. Had the special eggs benedict. Great food as always. A few times I felt like waiting a bit to get people’s attention. Ambiance at the bar was low key. I had no expectations given the early time.
Anyway, overall this is a great restaurant. A bit expensive but top notch. The cooking process is exposed. You see the people cooking and pressing fruit. Looking forward to my next visit.
As always, the food was excellent, service was incredible and vibe was perfect.
Always the best
Always a solid meal here!
Just really like it. We have been going there for years.
Great want to come back
Loved the dutch baby pancakes, so soft and fluffy!!
Excellent as always. Such a wonderful way to end a busy week, to have dinner at Tilikum.
It’s simply and truly my favorite place. The staff, the food, just everything. In 10 years I’ve never once had a bad meal.
The staff had birthday cards on the table for me when I arrived. WHO DOES THAT?? ♥️My heart and tummy are always so glad I came here and I will continue to refer it to everyone I know. I can’t say enough about it!
My favorite local spot. Always!
We went for my wife’s birthday. The restaurant made note of it and everyone was in on the celebration. I was very grateful for that.
We felt well cared for—start to finish. The meals were delicious, particularly the unusual preparation of the true cod served over a fennel slaw.
Enjoyed the food and service
The Pineapple upside down cake was too starchy
Unfortunately this place didn't live up to the hype! Food was bland and the dutch babies were doughy and lacked any flavor at all :(
Always excellent service and great food!
Great experience again. Very consistent food and service. Chef continues to produce creative dishes that deliver delicious food.
Always reliably good
