We ate at the Dahlia Lounge on a recent visit to Seattle. It was very good. Spouse and I each started with the basic salad and it was fabulous. Large, simple, perfectly dressed. We ordered bread to go with the salad and it was delicious Dahlia Bakery bread. Just this would have been a perfect, simple meal.
We shared the crab cakes as our entree. To the kitchen's credit, we each received a beautifully presented plate, each a half-order as we wished. (Some restaurants insist on bringing one plate and expect you to schlep the food off one plate onto another in order to split it, one of my pet peeves.) The food was delicious, crab cakes with a potato salad. I guess my only complaint is that there could have been more crab to filler, and I wish the crab had been larger lump pieces. And, it was $32. At any rate, it was still good. We split the coconut cream pie, not something I'd usually order, but this is the place to get it. Just really good and decadent.
The evening we were there the music mix was 60s and 70s R&B and soul. It was fabulous. You just don't get this music most places. What's not to love?
Ambience is comfortable.
The only reason I didn't give five stars is because I've actually had better crab cakes. And, it's not inexpensive. Still, I'd easily recommend this restaurant.
