Not a gluten free/vegetarian friendly choice. With a friendly word to the wait staff, a basic salad was organised. Ordered tea and had to ask for a second tea bag as pot was too large for one tea bag, was told I would be charged extra! As I was paying for a salad that had half the ingredients missing I... More

Yummy is all I have to say about this place. They have well priced happy hour specials and well crafted treats and drinks. I loved the shrimp- extra tasty. Everything was super fresh, including the awesome decor. Each table has its own little "collection."

Fun ambiance, good food, very nice wait staff. Tea or coffee or a more substantial snack is easily served. Specials change, so be sure to ask. Their soup is wonderful, especially on a cold Seattle day. It's hard not to keep looking, and looking at all the collected items of old. Toys, accordions, string holders...too many to mention. Fun and... More

The artwork and displays of eclectic antique objects are worth the trip here! A ton of accordions hanging from the ceiling?? Hello!! We spent an hour unwinding here and would hop up to check out the different displays under glass at each table as different diners left. The prices are high so be prepared but the artwork is really enjoyable!

Attached to the Chihuly Gallery. We arrived for lunch on the day of the March on Washington (DC) so it was very busy, but we got a table for 4 fairly quickly. Good staff, the food was varied and good - I had a grilled Caesar Salad which was quite good.

In addition to the great exhibits at Chihuly Glass and Garden, the are done very nice vintage collections built into each table that you can enjoy while you wait for your food in conjunction with your visit to Chihuly. Our table had transistor radios. Another had fishing lures. There is a wall of vintage tube your American radios. Very interesting... More

Outstanding food with great service. Geraldo, our server was a delight. Reasonably priced for both quality and location. Don't miss the crab benedict. Definitely making this a regular stop when in the area.

We had a coupon for free appetizer with entree purchase so we decided to eat there while we waited for our guest to visit the space needle. (My mom has a fear of heights so she did not want to go.) I've been to space needle plenty of times so I stayed with my mom. Our waiter was a very... More

The atmosphere brings as much to the table, literally, as the food! It's great to see Dale's collections and inspirations for his artwork. I had the fish n chips and loved that had a unique take on a classic!

There are not that many seatings in the restaurant. As a group of five people, we found it a little cramp sitting at the table where the waiters bring dishes in and out. You can get either burgers or brunch style dishes. Highly recommend not to get their Pear Ravioli dish pasta as it's not worth $20 of food. Nonetheless,... More

Dine on delicious dishes created with local, fresh ingredients at Seattle's most unique destination for lunch, dinner or weekend brunch. While you enjoy our Pacific Northwest-inspired menu, you'll be surrounded by many of Dale Chihuly's colorful collections. You might share your table with toy soldiers, 1950s cameras or transistor radios. Pair your meal with a fresh lemonade or choose from a hand-picked collection of craft beers and Washington and Oregon premium wines. Inside, enjoy spruce plank walls, bright green chairs and the stunning back-lit Drawing Wall with 36 of Chihuly's drawings or, when the sun shines, toast its warmth on one of two patios in the heart of Seattle Center. Extend your experience by visiting Chihuly Garden and Glass. Everywhere you look, you'll be inspired. Between May 27th and September 5th, Collections Cafe will serve Brunch from 10am to 4pm.
