Loulay Ratings and Reviews

I was coached to ask for a booth in the back, and it was a good thing because otherwise we'd never have been able to have a conversation over the noise. The food and wine were wonderful and the "large" wine pour was adequate, but alas, the prices are beyond my limit for anything but a SUPER special occasion.

Rovers was our favorite restaurant in Seattle, and we were sad when it closed. We have eaten at Loulay a number of times, hoping to glimpse some of the old magic. Until yesterday, the magic eluded us. Yes, the food was good, but not exceptional. Yesterdays lunch was exceptional. I had seared scallops, one friend had the Dungeness Crab Risotto, another had the Salad Nicoise. All were wonderful.
Service at Loulay is always excellent.

So, I've been here many times before for dinner and absolutely loved it, so when a co-worker came in town, who is an absolute foodie, I thought! OH let's go to lunch there! I was severely disappointed. The lunch selections are very mediocre, at best.

The food was delicious and is true to French cuisine. There was even a French speaking family seated next to us. Our server was thorough in explaining the beverages and specials and provided the correct silverware for the dishes we selected. However, I found Loulay to be overpriced. I incorrectly assumed that the price rating of 2 dollar signs out of 4 would be affordable. Turns out an appetizer dish consisting of half a quail (a tiny bird), one fig, and a smear of puréed potatoes costs $20. My fiend had a $13 glass of wine (apparently that was the cheap wine). Unfortunately, Loulay is simply out of my price range.

I have dined at loulay in the past and it was wonderful. this second time was not as good. the quail was delicious. the rhubarb dessert was not good. the wait staff at times was not attentive but did apologize and gave took dessert off the bill.

2 orders of the same thing trout, but only one was served they did not put the other order in. Had to wait 20 min before mine came and my other group member was done with his meal. Mine was much better and fresh his seemed do have sat for a while.

Never disappoints! The food is always delicious and creative and presentation is lovely! Whether you are entertaining guest, having a romantic meal or hosting a business meeting the staff caters to the scenario by serving at just the right tempo. The restaurant is lovely too!

Very nice place, good seating and attentive staff who explained the menu well and were able to help with recommendations. We went for a broader range opting to order selections for the table from the 3 different courses versus everyone ordering individually.

Loulays has always a top of the line experience for us. It is sophisticated, but casual. We enjoyed the Chef's previous restaurant, Rovers, but this suits our lifestyle and commute requirements better. The Chef in the Hat is a talented and congenial host. The wine choices are outstanding, and the food is interesting and well-prepared.
Loulay is by far my favorite Downtown Se ...
Loulay is by far my favorite Downtown Seattle spot on OpenTable. The service is excellent and the food options are interesting and varied. I'm often not big into french cuisine but when done properly I really love it: Loulay does a fantastic job at offering amazing food at fair prices in a chic environment.

This was our third visit to Loulay, and we very much admire Chef Thierry R, but in this particular case, I ordered a hamburger. The wait person asked how I would like it cooked, so I said with "some pink" but when I received it, it was instead completely cooked all the way through. This is trivial, but my fries were also extremely over salted.
We will return. Earlier visits were completely positive. In this case I would have to say the kitchen was less than spot on.

The brunch at Loulay was ok - we ordered croque madame and eggs benedict. My friend and I agreed that we've had better eggs benedict elsewhere, and my croque madame ended up being a very heavy, cheesy/creamy, bready dish. It was a very large serving, but there wasn't any excitement or flavor to the dish. We did order the beignets for the table and enjoyed those. Perhaps we shouldn't have started with dessert first :)

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.

Every course was expertly prepared with sensational wine pairings selected by Scot Smoth, beverage manager. The short ribs were "melt in your mouth" amazing - it was one of our best dining experiences of the year !
