Part of the Kimpton group- original food presentations, lovely atmosphere and open kitchen. Staff were courteous & knowledgable. We had Sicilian mussels ( great - lovely pepper kick to a light sauce), halibut, beautifully cooked ( not so easy) & veal chop which was cooked perfectly. Highly recommended.

We asked our concierge for a recommendation for an Italian restaurant within walking distance from our hotel. We were not disappointed with Tulio. Although the place was practically sold out the night we visited, the concierge talked the restaurant into reserving a place for us in their bistro/bar area. We had a small corner table that was more than comfortable,... More

We were staying at a hotel around the corner, so this was a natural first stop for breakfast during our week-long trip to Seattle. Being from the east coast, we struggled with the time difference and were happy to find the place open at 7 am! Even better, we were welcomed into the warmth and quiet atmosphere by friendly staff...

Attached to the Kimpton Vintage Hotel, this is a nice place for a dinner after arriving tired and wanting a nice meal. The atmosphere is nice - dark wood, good mood lighting, and a large attentive staff. We shared the Fra Mani meat appetizer which is a cold plate (cold from the fridge where I assume it was assembled earlier... More

We led a two day workshop in the second floor space of Tulio's. Everything was amazing. Mallory and David were the folks who helped us - Mallory with all the arrangements and David with the execution. We had the most enjoyable interactions, follow through, attention to detail, sense of humor and last minute accommodation to our requests. Our attendees were... More

We had dinner here one evening, although just at the bar instead of the full table service. Personally i wasn't impressed and was expecting more considering all the rave reviews this place has received. It was expensive and overpriced for what it was. Food portions were quite small, the guy at the bar wasn't friendly at all, plates were taken... More

Wonderful old world atmosphere and unique wine list. Was able to order gluten free linguini with clam sauce and learned they have an entire menu dedicated to gluten free eating.
