My first time dining here was with a big group for a birthday event. The staff was very attentive. The food and drinks also came out surprisingly fast, as I was with a group of about 25 individuals. The food was delicious! I ordered the duck as my main dish. It came out on a platter with about 4 or... More

Wife and I wanted to dine at Poppy since we read about it when it opened. We knew that the chef was from the Herb Farm, and the reputation that the food there was the best anywhere. Upon arrival for our 6:00pm reservation, we entered from the pay parking lot in the back of the restaurant. Nice to be able... More

The restaurant was very good. The meals are served in a group called a Thali and they change depending on what's available. We had Chicken, Salmon, Duck and Squash Blossom Thalis. As appetizers we had Eggplant fries and spice krispies (fries) There little dishes with palate cleansing cucumbers with spices. Nan's were served as the bread. All dishes were cooked... More

If you want a little bit of everything, go to Poppy. You will not go home hungry. I went with a friend and we made a reservation on a Saturday evening. We ordered two appetizers and each got our own main plate. Ask the waiter to explain how to order because you do need a strategy. The food was SO... More

We celebrated our first wedding anniversary here with old friends. Because we were on a short weekend trip from the East Coast, we asked our friends to pick somewhere casual but unusual, and that's exactly what we got, so we were not disappointed. To start, the small plates are outstanding, and wonderfully innovative. We had four small plates, and each... More

Enjoyed a nice evening with friends at Poppy. Food was very good, but also a bit twee. Seemed like it was just too much thought for the ingredients. Table had everyone of the four thalis - not a bad one amongst the group. Plenty of the small plates as well, which were all very good. The wine list was OK,... More

I was seated in the patio, which turned out to be the restaurant’s herb garden. It was a lovely warm night, but the patio is shaded and was scented with lemon balm, behind my chair, and other herbs, and I was treated to glimpses of the resident hummingbird just beyond my table. The food was excellent. The five dishes accompanying... More

We had dinner here on a Monday evening with local friends. Service was a bit slow, but that might have been due to the fact that we were there during dinner hour. The chef loves to work with fresh herbs and a lot of unusual flavor combinations. Behind the restaurant, by the outdoor dining tables, is a large herb garden... More

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...
