Tulio’s was a little disappointing for breakfast. Food was not hot when served and not deserving more than it was pretty good. Not great. Service was okay.
This restaurant places all open table reservations
In the noisy and cramped bar!
Service was terrible!!!
Food was only mediocre.
Our table was practically semi-private in balcony and service was wonderful. Delicious food, wine -- an absolute lovely evening!
Food was ok. Had to send 1 dish back, it was completely burnt. My dish was ok. Lacked any seasoning on the roasted red potatoes. It was difficult finding the ham in my omelet. Even though the wait staff was great the kitchen staff is in need of an upgrade.
We had high expectations based on TripAdvisor and Yelp. We were seated at the last table before the kitchen. My chair, with its' back to the waitstaff counter, was bumped multiple times by waitstaff passing by, with no apologies. The service, while courteous, was exceedingly slow. The bread was akin to cheap Wonder Bread, not delicious or Italian-tasting. The gnocchi starter was delicous; the pears in the burrata were out of a can and were not amazing. The entrees were tasty; the lamb & pork belly pasta were delicious. The chicken was very flavorful, although quick cool by the time it was served. The presentation of the Agnolotti, the only vegetarian entree offered by the waiter, was slop-like; a grey-colored goo covered the noodles, causing the dish to look very unappealing. We will not be returning and were disappointed in our experience.
Super as usual! Juan was our waiter and did a great job. He had good recommendations for us.
The food was terrific - pork and duck, some of our favorites presented in new ways. You won't be disappointed!
Fabulous food and service. The waiter was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list. Dinner was superb!
I am a classically trained chef and no that doesnt mean i can critique their food as i have a fraction of their experience but i know what im eating and that was some of the best food ive ever had and i would gladly eat there again
Portions were small and very bland tasting for the prices. Service marginal at best. Upon being seated, the bus person walked by us twice with a pitcher of water , once catching my eye, and kept on walking. As he walked by us a third time after stopping at tables on either side of us, I had to call out to him and ask if we could have some water . He either chose to ignore me or did not hear me, and kept walking. I ordered the risotto wich was served in an enormous bowl, but was the equivalent of a 1.5 measuring cup. It was under cooked and looked and tasted like oatmeal. This was a Valentine dinner and my lady was not impressed, especially after I had talked it up and told her about all the rave reviews?
Great food & service! Wish I had a scoop more of the orecchiette pasta but the homemade apricot lavender sorbet was phenomenal! Will definitely eat here again when I am in Seattle!
Good place for lunch or dinner but difficult for larger groups due to very high noise level making conversation difficult.
This is a treasure of a restaurant! We'll miss James.
The staff, knowing it was our anniversary, gave us two red roses and a free dessert. We truly appreciated that kind gesture. Everything went smoothly, our waitress was very attentive. It was nice to have valet parking. Thank you.
It was definitely okay. But for the price ($170 for one split appetizer, two entrees, and two drinks each) it wasn't worth it. I've had much better food. It was simply decent in my opinion. I won't be going back. I wasn't impressed. 3.5 stars.
The waiter and the food was great.
The source of our disappointment was the treatment we received on arrival. Although we made our reservation several weeks in advance, the hostess led us to the worst table in the room. When we asked for another of the many open tables, we were told they were reserved and were offered a slightly better location. Tiny table in high traffic area. Shortly after we were seated the hostess led another nicely dressed couple to the same lousy table we were first offered. Most of the better tables and booths remained vacant during our meal.
Despite the excellent food and attentive waiter, the mood on our special Valentine evening was spoiled.
Food was good, but Someone from New York or Chicago would never call this an Italian Restaurant. Ordered spaghetti and the noodles were little curly Asian style noodles in a clear broth, tasted ok, but not my idea of spaghetti
Long story short, if you screw up spaghetti in an Italian restaurant .....you are not Italian
Tulio's, as usual, provided an excellent experience for us. The food was delicious, the ambiance cozy and warm, and the service was exceptional. Great experience.
Great food. Server was cold and had an attitude. While the service itself was good, I did not like his demeanor or attitude.
Wonderful anniversary brunch
Fabulous food as always . Sat by the kitchen so was loud. Server was a bit grouchy.
Actual noise level on a Saturday nite with a theater crowd and several large parties diluted the previously experienced ambiance of the restaurant ... It was actually too busy; better when the theater crowd hit the road ... Not sure if there is room, but a soft string quartet playing during dinner time would sell out the tables most every nite ... Again, make certain not to focus on the side items rather than the quality of the food which was delightful ...
Terrific, as always. If you haven't had the chicken, please do. Find out what folks have been raving about for 25 years.
But with a half dozen new options on each menu that keep Tulio always current.
Old... makes you believe that it is a modern eatery when in fact it is old and crusty. The linguine vongole was the worst I ever had. Yuk.
We hadn't been to Tulio's in at least 25 years and yet we felt like we had just been there. Everything we tried was excellent.My wife had the Swordfish special while I went for the more traditional Orechetti with house made sausage. Nothing disappointed us from the warm and friendly service to the exciting entrees. It was without a doubt a very special evening
The lunch experience is an absolute treat! Great food and superior service make Tulio truly a superior restaurant
We were here before a show at the Paramount and server was great accommodating for our food intolerances she was also very patient and attentive. When I wasn’t sure which wine to try she immediately brought me samples of each. The food was also great. I started with Kale salad, then had bone-in ribeye, and finished with the tiramisu. What can I say, but I will definitely be back!
Not only was the main course incredible, the dessert course simply blew us away. The table enjoyed the cherry chocolate cake, pistachio semifreddo, and tiramisu, and each selection was expertly appointed. To top this all off, our waitress was incredibly patient and accommodating with members of our group that were inexperienced with ordering fine Italian, as well as those who were GF and vegetarian.
This was our first time at at Tulio, and we loved it. This is a great place to celebrate. They wished me a happy birthday from when we came in and gave me a glass of champagne and gave my daughter pomegranate juice. Our server was very friendly and attentive. Everything was delicious, and they made it a great evening!
Nice brunch menu. Would have liked a few lunch items offered. Service was great. Highly recommend before going to the theater on a Sunday afternoon.
Wonderful atmosphere only matched by the excellent service and our food was truly amazing!
