I visited Poppy as part of Seattle Restaurant Week. I loved the whole Thalis approach. It was really fun having small tasty dishes to try that so nicely accompanied the main dish. The flavors were exquisite and out of the ordinary. Our visit was an epicurean delight. :) In addition, the service was friendly and fairly prompt. The only consideration... More

I had a wonderful birthday celebration at Poppy this year. I love Jerry's menu choices and he is a master of delicious, interesting and "to die for" food. Go to Poppy and revel in the sumptuousness.

Nice idea of borrowing the thali concept from indian cuisine so as to offer multiple small courses all together. The restaurant is usually busy and the food is good.

We decided to explore this place on a Sunday night and we were really happy with the experience. The gorgonzola fig popovers were amazing! We also had the egg plant fries, the salmon, the steak and we both had the lemon verdana cocktail. We loved the drinks. All the sides were in their own little dish, which was great because... More

We ate at Poppy based on a recommendation from friends in Seattle and we were pleasantly surprised. We are not big fans of Indian food, but the Thalis were unique and really good. We started with the eggplant fries (amazing) and the fig toast (again amazing). I wanted the duck, but didn't care for the sides/salads, so the server was... More

Our experience tonight at Poppy was mostly positive. It was my first encounter with a 'thali menu' - which here means that each main course is surrounded by five small sides, each with a different taste, so the relation between the entree and the sides tastes builds itself. It was different, it was mostly good. The interior decoration is nice... More

oh no - what happened to Poppy? I'm at a loss...initially we were seated by the restroom (which I have to say had a minor smell), we ended up asking to be moved (no way can we enjoy dinner with people going in and out of the bathroom). Initially we didn't protest because it looked like a full place until... More

We eat out often and there are 'acceptable', 'good', and 'great' dining experiences. This one was off the charts 'an experience in your mouth" Delicious! We had the eggplant fries, octopus and crisped broccoli, figs on the brochettes, salmon and steak thallis, and then the dessert thallis with pandan ice cream w roasted coconut and hummingbird cake. WOW! If you... More

Had high expectations. The steak was good. The appetizer was good. The service was good. The patio seating in garden was sweet. The variety of condiments / presentation was 5 out of 6 good. The French wine was good. The fish was just okay. The odd 1 or 6 side presentation not so much. The dessert [shared] was too much,... More
