Poppy is located in Capitol Hill in a very nice neibourghood. The place is very nice, quite big with a modern bistrot decoration. I liked it a lot. Staff is very friendly and describe very well the cuisine and give great advices for wine. Cuisine is not classical at all but creative and the quality is top, not too pricey.... More

We loved the Thalis menu. So much variety and bursts of flavor all on one plate. It seems like a lot of food but everything comes together and melds perfectly.

If I'm in the city, I will not pass up the opportunity to eat and drink at Poppy. Sometimes I go to Seattle just to dine here. You can go alone, on a date, or in a party and be equally comfortable. The menu always offers something new and unique - you will not find tired restaurant fare here. On... More

Interesting food and drink menu. Every dish is made with fresh locally grown food. Every bite is burst with flavor. I thought the dishes are so small that I won’t feel full with the 7-item thalis, but surprisingly I was very satisfied and full. All thali come with nigella-poppy naan...which is pretty good.

Delicious cuisine! Fresh fusion of herbs in every bite! Each mouthful is a delight. This is a very busy restaurant, make reservations. We had the lamb and sea bass. The appetizer poached oysters, amazing. The prices are great considering the excellent food. Be sure to have dessert! (we had the hot date cake...yummy)

The restaurant serves fusion food, which is not my favorite, but the food was really good, prices reflect the quality (fair, not overpriced). Service is also good, since we were there on a busy Saturday night and we had our mains served within 15-20 minutes (we skipped the appetizers which according to the waiter can be served faster).

Friends and I had dinner here, following the recommendation of a local Seattle-ite, who called it "Light indian" fare. The Thalis presentation, with lots of little dishes indeed resembles Indian food, but the flavors are more PNW. Our duck in red cabbage and steak were both fantastic, would go again tomorrow. And, for the price, you actually could.

I really want to like this place. On my first visit, several years ago, I wasn't impressed. I thought the food was nothing special and wouldn't recommend it. Since that time, several friends have visited and loved it. So I thought I'd give it another try - restaurant week provided a good opportunity. My boyfriend and I went with a... More

I visited Poppy often when it first opened and again just last night. There were five of us, all absolutely raving. The food was fresh, tasty, lovely to look at. We're all veterans diners at some of Seattle's best restaurants and cafes but the blending of flavors and perfect use of herbs and spices left us most impressed.

This is a restaurant that we frequently ate at when we lived in Seattle. We kept coming back to it, because every visit was different, surprising and fun. The restaurant is owned by the renowned Jerry Traunfeld (formerly head chef of the Herbfarm. The way I learned about him was that I saw his books for sale at Poppy's on... More
