Noisy and worth it.

Indian style "thali" meals but NOT curries. One central entree served with 5 small complementary sides and delicious poppy seeded naan. Service very helpful.

After reading great reviews and looking forward to a James Beard award winning meal. The only thing fantastic about the meal was how quickly three different people came to apologize for the food. It was like the chef was missing. Appetizer arrived begore the wine. Uncooked Chipotle powder on lettuce, no salt on the angnilotti, the duck was dry and... More

Indian in presentation, innovative in concept, Poppy offers excitingly delicious flavor combinations of the freshest local produce. From my charred escarole with melt-in-the-mouth pork belly, through the perfectly cooked salmon on its Thali tray with multiple small plates (a tasting menu for one!) to the caramelized peaches in brown butter, every mouthful was a delicious adventure. This busy, buzzing restaurant... More

My husband and I did a trip in Seattle attempting to eat at only James Beard award winning restaurants. Of all the ones we visited, this was our favorite. The thali style dinners allowed us to try lots of different bites all delicious solo, but even more delicious when eaten together. The flavor combinations were really incredible. We took advantage...

I had the ricotta stuffed squash blossom which I found to have a very strange taste! This is a dish I really like and have eaten numerous times in Italy and at home. Apparently something has been added to the batter. Doesn't work! The zucchini agnolotti weren't great either. Apparently this chef had been at the Herbfarm, another restaurant I... More

There are times when a James Beard Award winning chef or his team do not live up to your expectations. This is not that place. Our group of five shared five wonderful appetizers, each of our main courses was raved about at the table. Lamb Osso Bucca that I had was wonderful. Two bottles of wine, one a 2005 Spanish... More

Wow! Poppy is not only visually beautiful, but the food is extraordinary!!! In addition, the service is friendly and informative. I live across the country from this restaurant, but I can't wait to eat here again!! Even if it seems impossible, save room for dessert!!!

I have eaten at Poppy 3 times and each time it was excellent. The executive chef is extremely creative and talented. *Full bar with excellent craft cocktails. My dining partners have enjoyed the wine selections. *The menu consists of numerous small plates/appetizers which are very interesting and delicious.

It was a little pricey for what you get. Presentation was excellent and this type of dining takes a little longer. Very unique dishes but what we had was tasty.

Beautiful restaurant, fun location on Capitol Hill. Really interesting and wonderfully successful food combinations. Fresh, flavorable local herbs and veggies. Sausage was to die for. Seasonal food prepared perfectly. Chef Jerry Traunfeld is a culinary genius. Poppy is a wonderful representation of his skills. You will not be disappointed!
