Dinner at Poppy with friends proved to be a very unpleasant experience. The first 'hit' came when parking in the lot behind the restaurant. Evening charge is $10, but when the credit card is processed, it's $12.20 (sales tax added). There ARE lots in Seattle where the tariff is set so that the final price with tax rounds out, but...

I love dropping in for happy hour or just for appetizers. The Thalis are also a treat. The wait staff is very good. Dessert and coffee are reason enough for a visit. Great location as well.

Poppy serves Thalis, an assortment of creative and beautifully prepared foods in small dishes. You choose one combination from the list of 6 assortments or so. Be prepared for a surprise in your mouth. Some flavors may be familiar, some not so, but it will be a fun and unexpected meal. Most dishes were wonderful, one was a bit unusual... More

This restaurant is located in a pretty hip area of Seattle. Unfortunately, because it's so popular, parking is kind of a pain. The restaurant actually has a large parking lot in the back, but you must pay, and pay dearly. On a Sunday evening, parking there would cost $12! That's ridiculous. Instead, we drove around and around until we found... More

The apps were excellent, we ha the dumplings and the octopus. Well seasoned and very fresh tasting with the herbs. The dumplings were nice and spicy and the octopus was tender. The main courses were really nice as well, we had the gnudi and the halibut and enjoyed them both. Nicely portioned and the side dishes (small cups of different... More

Located in Capitol Hill, Poppy's is an original restaurant serving Thalis (round tray with several small dishes), a nice way to discover various dishes. Great food combinations and the easygoing, attentive service make it a wonderful place to have dinner with friends.

I've only been here two times and both times were a wonderful treat. You receive several small plates on your tasting tray that allow you to sample the many wonderful dishes they offer. The first time we went, it was with a group of five and we all ordered different thalis. There was a nice, if small, range of feature... More

The small plate presentation of the meal is fun and if, like me, you want to try many different things at a meal it is a great way to do so. A friend and I ordered two different thalis and shared, allowing us each to sample a good portion of the menu. All of the options seemed to be well... More

Poppy's presents it's food as tasting trays called Thalis. This was a really fun way to try a bunch of different things on the menu. My daughter and I shared one and couldn't finish all the food.

I agree with other reviewers that this is a novelty restaurant. It's good to try at least once, but you won't feel compelled to come back. The thalis allow you eat many dishes at once. This is a great way to see what a restaurant has to offer, but Poppy bases their entire menu on the sampler idea. Some of... More
