Loulay Ratings and Reviews
Loulay will always be one of my go-to recommendations for anyone coming in to town. Always a favorite brunch spot for myself, as it's near where I live, and also a great drink spot pre or post theater. Creative, authentic, flavorful cuisine- there is sure to be something for everyone on their menu.
I was dining alone, but I do that a lot. They sat me at a table for one, which was nice, but there was a guest book ON the table, and it turns out, this is a dedicated table for one. It DID have a view of the kitchen and one could hear the expeditor, which was entertaining. And in the guest book, folks seemed very excited about this table for one. That's why I mention it, because it isn't something I've seen before, and folks seemed to like it. Personally, I thought it was kind of weird--I mean, the guest book and it being a big deal. I eat 98% of my meals alone, anywhere from five-star steakhouses to cheap diners. Mostly towards the high-end, though. And...I've never felt it was weird or unusual. I've always been comfortable. But the folks in the guest book seemed to think it was unique. Having the guest book was unique, but the experience (at least for me) was not. I'd have preferred to sit at the bar in back or the bar by the kitchen. Service was a bit slow--coffee was often low--and when they did bring coffee, it was awkward to pour because of where the table is placed. That wasn't so bad, but it was easy to feel off the beaten path.
Anyway, about the food. The salmon benedict (a special for the day) was VERY fresh. It was a good benedict. I also got a half order of biscuits and mushroom gravy. I've had that before but not here. I wanted to compare. The gravy was very good. The biscuits weren't that great, BUT the only place I've ever had them was known for its biscuits, and that definitely makes the difference. I wouldn't order again, but the gravy was a good one.
Beautiful place with fabulous French cuisine for Mother's Day breakfast. Service is attentive and professional and the ambience is elegant but not stuffy- a really lovely menu and everything we ordered was delicious. Highly recommend the Wild Mushroom Scramble or the Eggs Benedict du Jour-
My wife and I have dined at Loulay multiple times.
The food is always excellent and very creative.
The service has always been outstanding.
The owner is a well known chef who has been in Seattle for many years and has an outstanding reputation.
The location is downtown and close to several of Seattle's theatres.
Centrally located and has a nice menu with good selections. Generally the items are expensive, but look good when they arrive. We sat in a booth, which was private and comfortable. Service was good, and the food came quickly.
My dish was a disappointment. I ordered the dungeness crab with risotto. It was bland and uninspiring. It had the texture of baby food, and taste to match. Frankly I was expecting a bit more flair from this place.
We selected this restaurant based on proximity to the theater, and were pleasantly surprised by the incredible food and the intuitive, kind, and knowledgeable wait-staff. They made fantastic suggestions for wine and dinner. I will go back for my birthday and have the best desert of my life. A lovely, lovely night.
Food quality was outstanding, as was the service. Protein portion sizes were generous, but the vegetable garnishes could easily have been doubled to balance the plate. First and second courses were quite small, which we expected based on our waitress's description. The French onion soup and trout amandine will definitely bring me back.
Another lovely meal at Loulay. Went to dinner with 3 others, we shared the beet and smoked yogurt salad and the seared polenta - both delicious. We all ordered different entrees, but I to say that my roast chicken was the best of the lot! Yes, it's possible to have bad roast chicken. The version at Loulay has a crisp, salty skin, moist meat and served with roasted fingerings and a small salad. DELICIOUS!
We went to celebrate my wife's birthday and they made the whole experience very special. We were lucky enough to sit upstairs at a quiet and comfortable table.
Make sure to get the charcuterie board to sample some of the amazing skills that this chef has. There was a wide variety of incredible options.
Overall, this is an ideal place for a special occasion that requires a romantic and laid back ambiance.
This brunch is great! It should be featured more across Seattle Brunch reporting. We enjoyed the French Toast, Croque Madame, and Biscuits and Gravy. All were generous portions and well executed. Everyone from the host to our server was highly professional and knowledgeable of the restaurant and menu. Great experience.
This was a family trip to Seattle with our adult son. This restaurant was recommended to my son by a friend and it did not disappoint! We are all foodies and our server, Brooke helped make some great choices. The Bone in steak was incredible. The menu said it served 2 but we were able to feed 3. We also had the mushroom dish in course 1 along with the mussels. We were impressed by the food, the service and the ambiance!
