Loulay Ratings and Reviews

The burgers an mussels were both very good!! I was pleased with most things- except the service. Our waiter forgot things (drinks, condiments, etc) multiple times and then would avoid us when we would try to make eye contact. I do recommend the food and wine though :)

We were pleasantly surprised and would go back again in a heartbeat. First, I asked for a quiet table in the reservation - and we were shown to a table on the upper mezzanine that was nicely quiet because of the lower ceiling and distance from the noisier, lower scene. Second, our server was terrific - very friendly but professional at the same time - though he did let us wait a bit too long to order dessert. But the food ... oo-la-la. The scallops were great - can't stop thinking about them. Several of us started with the crab beignets and were so happy with that choice. Other favorites were the mussels, steak frites, risotto, pork chop.

This has become the favorite place for my friends and I to meet. The food is uniformly good, as is the service. Our favorite dishes from the summer menu are the dungeness crab risotto and the seared scallops with gnocchi.

Enjoyed a birthday dinner and the foie gras on the menu. Was excited to learn there was a chef's counter hoping we could watch and perhaps interact with the kitchen staff as we very often do at 13 Coins at SeaTac. This was disappointing as there was no good line of sight. The counter was elevated in front of us and piled with stacks of dishes. We had to peek around the serving ware to try to see what they were cooking. The chefs made no attempt to interact with us in any way though we tried to ask occasional questions about what they were doing. I would say skip the counter and go for a more comfortable booth
The waitstaff was very pleasant and attentive.

We went to Loulay on our wedding anniversary, mostly because we really like Chef Thierry Rautureau's restaurant Luc in Madison Valley. Loulay is a little more formal, a beautiful room. We had several dishes, topped off with a chocolate desert on which they had written in chocolate "Happy Anniversary!"
They will pour their wines by the glass either 3 oz. or 6 oz. at a time, which makes it easy to taste a few that look good. A good mix of Columbia Valley/Walla Walla, California and French labels.
The total bill was not cheap, but actually a little less than we had anticipated. Decent value. We will be back.

4th or 5th time at Loulay, and another excellent experience. Lovely food presentation, and portion sizes ideal (except the "second" risotto which is too small for a second or the cost. Otherwise all very good indeed.

Loulay has really stepped up their midweek lunch game. The menu is varied and eclectic with very reasonable prices for the portion size. Service was friendly and efficient - we didn't feel rushed or bothered at all yet we were still in and out in under an hour. The seared scallops were perfect, as was the risotto. We'll be back soon!

Food to die for. We shared all our dishes which included the Crab Beignets, the Dungeness Crab Salad, Muscovy Duck and Grilled King Salmon. For dessert, we shared the Spiced Sugar Beignets with vanilla diplomat creme and valrhona chocolate sauce. Everything was delicious. That it was in our hotel made it even more enjoyable after a day of touring Seattle.

This was our 2nd visit to Loulay's and it was amazing! We had some friends from out of town and they were extremely pleased with the food and the restaurant ambiance. Our waitress was very polite, kind and very knowledgeable of the menu. We'll definitely choose Loulay for special occasions in the future.

Not my first time, not my last. A dependable, delicious choice. This time I had the steak frites and it was just what I wanted. Perfectly cooked, of course, and balanced plate with the small and very tasty salad. Great service.

I had been wanting to try Loulay since it opened, but was leery of negative reviews about their service. I am sorry I waited so long - the service was perfect. The menu has a nice variety and some interesting plates. The crab beignets were delicious. Looking forward to going back soon.

We chose to go to Loulay for our anniversary. We were fans of Rovers and wanted to see
what Terry did with this place.... and we love french food. We made reservations but our table when we arrived was "not quite ready; they have their bill"- so they comped us a drink in the bar while we waited- ( we requested a booth- its quiter than the main floor area)
Because it was our anniversary ( ?) or was it the wait(?) they wisked over 2 glasses of champagne to our table when we sat down. The menu was lovely ( check online) and the waiter posed 2 specials they had that were amazing. With our shared dessert, they wrote out "happy anniversary " in Chocolate... that went well with the ice-cream! On of the nicest dining experiences we have had in a long time!! We will be back again soon.

Dinner at Loulay is always a treat...but this time was magical!! We started with a house made buratta with peaches and basil, probably the best appetizer I've ever ordered. The combination was so unexpected and yet so perfect together that I had to wonder why it hadn't been done before, the peaches were that perfect ripened sweet, soft...I could go on and on! Then the chef came out to our table and it was to fun to talk with the famous "chef in the hat". Scallops were cooked perfectly, and I am very picky about them and don't order them often, but the waiter suggested when I asked and I am so glad he did!! Service was fun, as we were celebrating, but was unobtrusive with our neighbors who seem to be having a more romantic evening. I can highly recommend this wonderful restaurant!

We needed a place for dinner after shopping and I was a bit hesitant because around 7:30pm on Fri they had an opening for 8PM. This is rare. But I chose it based on the ratings and it was a perfect choice. Located right in the center of downtown in walking distance from the major shopping and art venues. We had a great service, our server was super helpful, food was excellent and the place is very nicely designed. All three of us were very happy so now I am recommending it to all my friends.

It was small and very busy. Maître d' skipped over us as we were waiting for a table, even though we had reservations. Waitress "didn't see us", so we waited longer than necessary for service. We ordered a $7 non-alcoholic cocktail, which was much smaller than I anticipated. However, once the food arrived, it was fantastic and the final bill was tolerable. The place is decorated nicely and had a good "bustling" vibe to it, although it's a little loud for my own personal taste.

The beignets were great, portion size were such that the three of us were able to share. We were there for brunch, our table ordered the omelette, eggs Benedict and the crab salad. All the di ashes were delish, the eggs Benedict was the standout. According to my husband "it could easily be the best egg Benedict" he's had. My crab salad was a little "short" on the greens, but otherwise good. Definitely will be back the next time were in Seattle!

WE did not like being placed on the 3d floor, esp. since one of our guests was elderly and it was a difficult walk for her. Also we felt like we were at the children's table - i.e., out of the main action. Would have preferred a table on the main floor.

Another satisfying visit for lunch as I work my way through both the salads (this time the nicoise) and red wine by the glass. Will be back soon to try the duck confit. The Nicoise presentation is the best I've experienced yet. That 7-minute soft-boiled egg it brilliant. The waitstaff is always gracious and welcoming, at least to me. I truly enjoy my time at Loulay.

We had a pre-theatre dinner at Loulay on a Friday evening. Our party arrived two hours before curtain. High quality food--French bistro with plenty of flair. Sea Scallops were divine. Service languished on this occasion. The server, knowing we had theatre tickets, squandered time on the front end with too much time for drinks and wine at the start. Then sold us dessert with too little time left for the kitchen to get it out to us. Probably should not have sold it to us. We did make our curtain.
A couple I met in Seattle recommended I ...
A couple I met in Seattle recommended I try Loulay, I'm very glad I took their advice. I unknowingly ordered three new items on the menu, the foie gras, the duck and the bouillabaisse. All were exceptional, as was the rhubarb panna cotta. The suggested wine pairings were spot on, wish I lived 2000 miles closer. From one chef to another, and his brigade, well done.
