Loulay Ratings and Reviews

The ambiance is excellent and the upstairs dining option is a real plus. It's fine dining, folks. You have to expect the prices will reflect that. We spent $150 for 2 meals with drinks and dessert., main courses and appetizers. Everything was good. Can't say any one thing was spectacular. I would like to see the entrees grow in size. I had the flatiron steak with the demi-glace, which was nice. But given the price of a flatiron, not an expensive cut, I would expect at least 1/2 pound. Definitely did not get that. No carb. Some small onions and turnips. Would have liked a fuller plate. Easy reach of theatres and symphony does make it an additionally attractive destination. Plus City Center parking is very near. That was free as we had a drink at the Palomino and got the card stamped.

The Chef in the Hat continues to hit his stride at Loulay. A perfect mix of terrific food and impeccable service, with an upscale but not stuffy atmosphere. Great place for a dinner with family or friends, either as the evening's event or before a movie, theatre or the symphony. We've visited several times and never been disappointed!

We were excited to go to this wonderful Seattle gem. Having been a fan of the Chef in the Hat from Masterchef, we were looking forward to trying his food. It did not disappoint. We started with an appetizer of Crab Beignets: they were delicious, the harissa aioli was added just the right amount of heat which was tempered with the cool micro greens. My wife saw the look in my eye and quickly admonished me not to lick the plate. My wife had the risotto which was delicious and beautiful with edible lily pads on the top as a garnish. I had the Muscovy Duck: both my wife and I decided that I had chosen the better meal, the flavor was outstanding and I would order it again without a seconds hesitation. Once again, I would have cast aside the thin vestiges of polite society and licked my plate clean. Lastly, we ordered the seafood bouillabaisse: the mussels were cooked to absolute perfection, the most tender mussels I have ever had.
Then the night was capped off by a personal visit by chef Thierry Rauturaeau. I was just barely able to restrain my little-girl squeal of delight. Obviously, I am not a proud man.
As you can surmise, I would wholeheartedly recommend Loulay. Go on, you deserve this.

The reservation was for an early dinner before a show. The seating was prompt, the server attentive and knowledgeable, the food fabulous (appetizer thru dessert) and the bill swift, allowing us plenty of time to walk to the theater.

Food was cold, menu both on website and OpenTable was not the same meaning my wife didn't get what she had planned (it was also her birthday). Furthermore, the fish (salmon) 3rd course was off. It tasted really fishy and was slimey and bad - $38 for the pleasure of two horrid bites.
We will not be returning and would encourage others to avoid. There are much better alternatives in Seattle.

We took a client there and we had a really good time. The food has nice portions (not overdone as is most places). What we liked the most was that the food was "lightly sauced." Many restaurants overdo the sauce, salad dressings, etc., and Loulay does just the right amount. I really enjoyed it, and we will come back again.

The menu, food and service were great. They only missed the mark on gluten free guidance. Despite telling the waiter a few times of my wife's dietary needs, they clearly served her gluten which caused an unpleasant next day.

Loulay categorizes its dishes in basically small, medium, and large sizes. Not wishing to eat too much before a movie we each ordered Muscovy duck and seared foie gras with a side of grilled summer vegetables of yellow and green squash. It was a superb dinner, and just the right amount. We will be returning, I'm sure.

Great service, wonderful dining room layout (love the balcony seating), mostly great food. My scallops unfortunately were not cleaned properly and were quite full of unpleasant grit. However, all the other dishes were great and the flavors outstanding.

There is noting special about this restaurant. It's located downtown and I feel as thought it caters more to tourists than locals. The only stand out dish was the foie gras. Everything else was mediocre or overlooked (pork chop). There are much better options with the same distance as Loulay. I will not be returning.

Loulay consistently has excellent food and attentive, careful service. The menu is set up (roughly) by portion size, small, medium and large. One dish from any two categories is enough for the average person. The menu is balanced nicely between meat, seafood and vegetables. Duck and scallops were excellent the night we visited; ditto desserts.
Absolutely outstanding! I've driven by ...
Absolutely outstanding! I've driven by Loulay for years. Thought about going in but it was off my normal route. I've totally been missing out. My BLT was the stuff of legend. I swear. Incredible. I'm going back next week for dinner!!

The place was a tad noisy but the food was really good. The French onion soup was rich and cheesy as it should be. The lobster risotto was also rich but delicious nice level of lemon to go with the lobster and the rice was cooked al dente.

The location is very nice
They managed to bring the wrong starter (but thankfully they billed the one they brought) - which tasted ok;
2 scallops for 22$?
And after reading the rave reviews about the service, which we didn't have - we couldn't help but be disappointed...

We were seated at a lovely table by the windows.
Caprese salad was delicious but with limited mozzerella.
Seared Scallop second course was likewise delicious but contained two sea scallops for $22.
Grilled King Salmon was intensely fishy to taste and was served luke warm for $38.
Steak Frite was brought to our table barely warm, intensely chewy and without tenderness. The side salad had numerous pieces of old, brown lettuce.
Wine list was impressive and weighted toward the high end and moderately high end price range. To my recollection there were remarkably few choices (perhaps 3 or 4) for red wine under $40.
Atmosphere and service was good. After we registered our feedback to our server, we were given about a $30 discount on our bill.
Conclusions: uneven food preparations, overpriced and not a good value for money spent.

Our server, Brian, was outstanding, with very detailed explanations of everything. This is our second time and it was even better then the first. For the special occasion of eating out with our family (missing one daughter) it was perfect.
