This restaurant has great potential but needs to take a few steps to make it great. Select entrees esp. the small plates were outstanding ...the polenta with mushroom demi-glaze reductions was amazing. We were disappointed in the pomme frites especially from a French restaurant...Ivar's does a better job. They need to step up the décor ...dark veneer plastic tables was a bit distracting from the elegance of the room.

Great atmosphere and decent food, but sadly not good enough to justify the relatively high cost and pretention. The kitchen also has consistency issues across dishes, namely in the portion sizes of identical dishes.

Five of us met for a later lunch (1:45) and had the place almost to ourselves. The food was outstanding, service great, and we had a wonderful time. I had forgotten what a great job they do with food. Can't wait to go back!

This was the best experience I have ever had at a restaurant. I would not have changed anything about it. The food was out of this world delicious, and the service was incredible. We will definitely be back next time we are in Seattle.

The meat was a bit undercooked but tasted pretty good
Great even pre-movie for a quick bite to eat!
We stopped in for a quick bite before a movie and the server made sure that our food came out on time and brought us the bill immediately before we even had to ask. Great service, delicious food, great location to shopping and theaters.

The service and food were excellent. Our server guided me to the fish of the day, a type of cod that I don't exactly recall which was delicious. My husband had the salmon. The sommelier guided us to the perfect Pinot Noir. I highly recommend this restaurant. My only regret is that we did not have another meal there. We were in Seattle for six days and just didn't have time.
Everything was a little too tricked up for our tastes, but it is clean, friendly and tasty. We prefer the traditional French Bouilliabasse, for example. Hard to improve on the real thing by substituting Siracha for Rouille, for example, but this is really a nice restaurant, so give it a chance to get great.
Good upscale restaurant but nothing memorable
We arrived early (4PM) after a Sunday matinee performance at the Paramount Theater. The restaurant did not open until 5PM so we sat in the bar and ordered a beer (Pike Brewing Kilt Lifter $7) and a carafe (24 oz) of white house wine for $28. Most of the wines on the menu were much more expensive. The house wine was light and refreshing but not memorable. We both had French onion soup, a house specialty and it was excellent. I make my own onion soup and this broth was rich and flavorful topped with lots of cheese but I would have added a shot of brandy to finish. At $11, the soup was not a bargain. My wife had bouillabaisse ($27) and I had the fresh catch, Ling cod ($34). Prices were comparable to other seafood restaurants in Seattle. Desert was Spiced beignets ($10) which we shared. Service was attentive and professional and the atmosphere relaxing and calm. 2 weeks prior, we completed a 20 day cruise on a Holland America ship and we found the LouLay food comparable to the Rotterdam Dining room (not the buffet) but at a much higher price. While we thoroughly enjoyed the dinner, nothing made us say, "Wow, that place is really worth coming back to." We have several well known seafood restaurants in Federal Way and DeMoines on the south sound that serve up a comparable meal for at least 20% less and you have a waterfront view.

Mid week Dinner
Everything was great, food and service, our second time here, same great experience as the first !
The food was good, but the waiter had no knowledge of the menu, was awkward and unhelpful throughout the meal, and overall ruined a birthday dinner. Will not return and do not recommend given all the wonderful dining establishments in Seattle.

Very nice place to dine in! The stake is awesome!
I looked this restaurant up on Open Table to be within walking distance from our hotel, we got a bit lost and so were 20 minutes late for our reservation which had been classed as no show. We were shown to a table for 2 in front of the kitchen which I declined and then sat at a tall bartable. Our waiter was cheerful and outstanding, not so much the hostess. Food was good, wine list good wouldn't go again.
This is my favorite French restaurant and go-to place to enjoy a fine meal with friends whenever I am in Seattle. MMMM mmmmm!

Excellent food and very professional service. I would recommend this restaurant especially those who are picky about their food.

My husband eats at Loulay a lot for work, but I rarely join him. He was familiar with the menu so was able to give us good advice on ordering. I found the dinner portions to be very appropriately sized. Big enough to satisfy, but no so big as to be too stuffed for drinks, deserts, appetizers. I really enjoyed the Neah Bay lingcod. My husband had the steak. Very professional wait staff was completely service oriented!

Squash sandwich was very good. My friend enjoyed her kale salad. Service was pleasant.
Risotto was great and crab fritters and onion soup a hit too.
The selection and food were amazing! This restaurant was recommended to us and we are so glad we took that recommendation! The pork cheek was incredible as was the service and ambiance!

We had dinner here before a lecture series and it was wonderful. Everyone was very friendly, helpful and professional. The food was incredibly good and unusual. We will definitely return. (this was our second visit as we were here last year when we were in town).

We met some out-of-town friends for Sunday brunch. The food and service were excellent-- when I had to step out to quiet my crying baby, our server had the kitchen remake my dish (poached egg over asparagus) so it would be hot. Very gracious!

I think loulay is one of the best dinning experiences that I have had in a long time. The food is so so soo good, and the atmosphere is both sophisticated and laid back. Crab beignets are always great, but what I like about this place is aside from a few staple dishes like the beignets the menu is constantly changing. There's always a surprise and each dish is better than the next. We had a rhubarb dessert that was so refreshing and creative, I'm still talking about it days later. I would highly recommend this place, if you like delicious food you will like this.

The food was creative and delisous! The staff was well trained and knowledgeable. Our server Ashley was faboulis! Bestro style but with fine dining, attention to detail service and food. Value was very good but found wine prices high due to selection. A few more moderate selections would be appreciated.

I couldn't find an open reservation and had to settle for the restaurant next to the Seattle Sheraton. And, I am SO GLAD I did! Loulay is a great restaurant! The food is excellent, the wait staff goes above and beyond. We liked this place so much that we went back for brunch and enjoyed that as well. Great find! Don't be afraid! It was wonderful!!!
