Loulay Ratings and Reviews

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 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.

A friend invited 3 of us for lunch at Loulay, the resturant is very nice, new and comfortable. The menu was amazing we had a hard time deciding so we ordered 5 dishes, the Beef Burger, Crab Risotto, the Kale Salad, Farmer's Lunch and the BTL, all were excellent. There were more dishes I wanted to try so I returned two more times that week with more friends. We ordered the Duck Confit Salad, NW Seafood Stew, Crab Risotto and the Beighnets for dessert. The next day we ordered the Mushroom Salad, the Lunch Special Tuna and Salad. The service was very attentive and friendly. It is now my favorite downtown eatery and could eat there everyday.

Great restaurant in downtown Seattle. Attractive contemporary environment.
My wife and I enjoyed the Candied Walnut & Arugula salad, Mussels and the Pork Chop. Everything was excellent. The Pork Chop at first glance appeared to be too thick to be tender and good. Not the case. You could cut it with one slice of the knife with a great taste to match. It was very good. My wife asked our server, Julie, if she could find out how the pork chop was prepared. Julie came back with a detailed description of the process to my wife's delight. She was also a very good server.
Scott Smith really knows his wines as well.
In summary, it was a wonderful evening dinner!

My 2 year old daughter was fussy, crying and a waiter spoke disparagingly of my family with a group that the waiter was serving. I informed the waiter that I overheard him and he appeared embarrassed but he did not apologize. The restaurant was not child friendly, not helpful. For example, staff standing at the door did not even offer to hold the door or help when we were struggling with the stroller and the door. My wife and I found the staff aloof, insensitive. Also, there didn't seem to be any ethnic diversity amongst the restaurant staff employees. To pose it in the vernacular "what's up with that?"

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.

I found the food to be mediocre and under seasoned and bland. The only good selection was the appetizer scallops. My bouilliabasse was bland. Little tomato taste or seasoning. Little flavor to seafood. My friend had the halibut and said very dry with little taste . Dessert was a mix up but torte I ended up with tasted like a chocolate mousse with a lot of gelatin added . Peanut butter one had little flavor of peanut butter. For price and hassle with traffic I would not return.

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!
