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...

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.
