Description: Centered around the cuisine, decor and imagery of the French Quarter and New Orleans and creating the feel of the Big Easy, Toulouse is one of the most intricate and ambitiously built restaurants in a generation. Our expansive menus offer culinary diversity and range from traditional Creole and French Quarter menu choices to traditional Parisian and French countryside preparations to more innovative dishes that are entirely unique to Toulouse. At Toulouse we are tremendously committed to offering value in all of its various forms, which includes our intricate and texturally rich decor, cuisine prepared with discipline and skill, fabulous cocktails, a diverse Northwest and French centered wine list, unrepeatable and unique people, and accessible prices in an adult escapist and community environment.

“Unbelievable food and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We knew about Toulouse Petit, because of an article we read in a Seattle magazine.
It was even more wonderful than we expected.
The breakfast was the best! The Eggs Benedict are to die for!
We were served by this great guy named Rodney, and we noticed the whole staff was very good!
So we came back for dinner and we wanted something simple, their menu is very extensive, but we wanted the filet and pommes frites with the aioli and this amazing demiglazed.
The server at dinner was also great his name was Jake and he suggest a great french wine that complemented our food perfectly.
The place is very special, the tables are beautiful, the candles at night are such a nice touch!
We wished we had time to have a few more memorable meals there, everything in the menu sounds wonderful, they use very gourmet ingredients, and the prices are very reasonable!

“Best Breakfast Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

I was in Seattle to visit family and we stayed near the Space Needle. We read about Toulouse Petit in a travel book and decided to go for breakfast. It was superb in every way. I had french toast with caramel and pears and I've never had anything like it. Besides excellent food, the service was attentive and efficient. It has interesting and eclectic decor. It's a good thing I don't live near this restaurant. If I did, I woudl be a much larger person in no time. I highly recommend it.

I ate here several times during my stay in Seattle. The service was always friendly, and the food excellent. Some of the best creole/cajun food, anywhere.

“Amazing brunch in lower Queen Anne”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

Great service, good atmosphere and the food is amazing! If you love seafood and brunch, this is your place. Even if you aren't a big fan of seafood, the menu is big enough to find something you'll love. Plus, the fresh French press coffee is tasty. A great Seattle brunch stop.

“Huge selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

The ambiance is little weird, but I guess Creole. But we came for the food and it was very good. The selection is unbelievable and usually we prefer restaurants specializing in just one type of food, but based on the reviews we came to try this one. The crab with grapefruit salad was very good, and so was the cauliflower crab soup. the tuna carpacio was very good and I loved the wild boar sausage. The duck confit was spicy and that disappointed my wife a bit (she does not favor spicy food), but I loved it.The desert was huge and good. The wine selection is extensive as well. Service was excellent, with the exception of the person taking the reservation, she was little ornery. Overall pleasant experience.
