Waited for 40 min for the food, latte was poorly made, very liquid-y and tasted like diluted, no milk froth, no latte art, very disappointed at the latte. The sweet Dutch baby was too sweet, everything else is pretty good (potato quiche is super good). Server wasn't super attentive.

Had Sunday breakfast at Tilikum Place Cafe on a recent trip to Seattle. Good thing I made a reservation 2 weeks in advance because the place was full. The place is very cute and quiet with a great view of the Space Needle from my window seat. The Savory Dutch Baby (the reason we came) was fantastic and absolutely worth the trip. We also has a Pork Belly Benedict special and Baked Eggs - both fantastic! Great food, service, ambiance and no wait with a reservation.

The kitchen was very slow. Service felt disjointed - it wasn't clear who was serving us, it took long time to order, it was hard to flag someone down for requests (ie to take our order), etc. This was intended to be a "lunch hour" kind of lunch, but it took almost two hours to get in and out! Ambiance is great, food was decent, but it just took too long and we didn't feel adequately valued by the staff despite having pretty standard expectations for service.

My Tilikum Fry Up was delicious. And, my vegetarian friend equally enjoyed his Portabello Mushroom Dip Sandwich. The staff was very welcoming and their service was perfect.

Without a doubt, the BEST brunch in Seattle. The place has a wonderful ambiance and the food is extraordinarily creative and delicious. There is a full bar and french press coffee available. The service is exceptional. Depending on who you're sitting near, it can get a bit loud, but not too loud to have an intimate conversation. Early reservations are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED or you will wait for an hour or more to be seated. If you do have to wait, it's still worth it.

Thursday night date night. We arrived early and were seated right away. Not crowded when we arrived but full soon after. Waitress pleasant, attentive, and helpful. Food was good but not outstanding. We both loved the Brussels sprouts. We really enjoyed ourselves but not blown away. Would easily recommend.

I love, love, love the food at Tilikum Place. I try and get there as often as I can afford it, and for special occasions.

On this instance, everything was amazing - the bar service, the ambience, the extra bread and the warm environment. The only thing that didn't get 5 stars was my food, this time. I had the scallop special with mini beans and kale and it was probably the most disappointing meal I've had there. This is no reflection on TPC - this was just a major miss and out of the 25+ meals I've had there, an acceptable one. That being said, if you see this review Open Tablers - I can't suggest TPC enough. GO!

Amazing! I had the Tilkium Fry - the baked beans were fantastic as was everything else. Adding the Beecher's cheddar to the toast is a MUST.

Get a pot of french pressed coffee while you're at it, the brew they had was fantastic.
