Very unusual meal

The food at Poppy is striking and unusual. The four main dishes come with a variety of small dishes, two cold, two warm that compliment the main dish flavors and provide lovely contrasting textures and flavors. The service is warm and the room is very comfortable, stylish without being fancy or... read more

I had the TREMENDOUS fortune of dining at this FANTASTIC restaurant, and I had an AMAZING dining experience! I REALLY LOVED EVERYTHING about this place! The ambiance is chic and modern, the menu is FULL of FANTASTIC flavors, and the service was EXCELLENT! Here's how it went down for me: 1st Small Plate - fried mussels with lovage aioli... DELICIOUS!... More

This is my 2nd visit. My first was about a year and a half ago. Concept has remained the same though the menu has changed. I believe they change the menu seasonally, maybe more often than that. You can check their website for the latest menu Its a casual layout and noise, while not excessive, does exist. Their thali approach... More

When I travel solo it's hard to taste everything I want, but the thalis takes care of that. You get a main with numerous small but yummy sides. Everything changes with the season so just go with the flow. Even though you'll be stuffed, try to make room for the rice crispies...the spice is just that good! Be warned, the... More

Wife and I picked Poppy's on the fly based on trip advisor and yelp reviews and it was a great choice! We eat light and like to share. On this visit we sat at the bar and had the eggplant fries (phenomenal!) and the trio of spreads with naan (also very good). Definitely a great choice with plenty of other... More

A new dining experience for me. Fresh, creative and tasty dishes. A great variety of food included in the meal. I had the chicken and absolutely loved it!

I have tried pretty much all the best restaurants in Seattle (not to brag or anything), and everyone in my family consistently chooses Poppy for special occasions: birthdays, graduations, you name it. The reason for this is the amazing food, service, and atmosphere. If you strongly prefer traditional meals, obviously this isn't for you, but I have even been to... More

food combinations are imaginative, although I am not certain the combinations really work. The chef seems to be more intrigued with being unique than creating flavors that taste good.

As I am french... I am a bit difficult. The ambiance is nice and quiet. Starters are very good. Wine menu is interesting. The main courses are creative but there are too many different things in the plate. You loose the main element (shrimps for me...). A place to go anyway.

So, restaurant reviews are always quite subjective; as well, they can be so influenced by a single experience based on one night and one set of servings. All these things are true about the experience my wife and I just had a at restaurant in Seattle knows as Poppy. To start everything we ordered was excellent – well beyond “oh... More
