Home of the deservedly famous triple coconut pie.

T.D's first restaurant and still has it going on! I'm a fan of their brunch in particular. It may be a simple menu but perfect execution trumps complexity any day in my book! Homemade jam and biscuits replace conventional toast, yes please!

A Seattle classic, don't miss breakfast here- the donuts and homemade jam are delicious!

Yummy baked goods! – We heard about this bakery from the next door Serious Pie waitress who raved about the coconut cream pie. So, of course, we had to try it! Though, when we went it was already closed. So the next morning we tried again and we got a fig bar, yogurt and granola cup, and a bitesize coconut cream pie to-go (they put it in a small chinese to-go looking box which was perfect ).

I absolutely LOVED all of them, and I REALLY enjoyed the granola and yogurt cup which I kept craving throughout my visit in seattle~

Definitely worth a visit to taste some of their baked goods. I would for sure go back if ever back in seattle.

Great place for some soup and bread – When I get a chance for a qick bite in downtown Seattle I head to the Dahlia Bakery. On a cold or wet or overcast day a warm bowl of soup always sounds great and the Dahlia Bakery delivers. There are other soup flavors, but my favorite is their house made tomato. A bowl of soup includes a piece of bread as well.

The baked goods are all delicious, if not a little high in price. If you want some bread, rolls, or the famous coconut cream pie this is the place for you. Smaller baked goods like cookies can be a little expensive.

Long-time Favorite – The Dahlia Lounge remains one of my Seattle favorites, as it has consistently delivered delicious Northwest cuisine and good service since I started dining at Tom Douglas restaurants 14 years ago. I was sad to see the Dahlia move to its current larger space, because I loved the intimacy of the smaller Dahlia. However, the dimly lit dining room with hand-blown northwest glass and the discrete servers who are usually interesting people create the magic needed for an intimate dinner for 2 or 10. Tom Douglas invented Northwest cuisine, and he continues to impress with his varied and creative menu options.

best piece of pie in town – My favorite actual pie in Seattle is undoubtedly, invariably, the luscious, one of a kind true Seattle recipe for creamy coconut cream pie to be found only at Tom Douglas' little bakery on 4th avenue, called Dahlia. Lots of places have pie in Seattle. If you try and compare bakeries, you will not find a better slice of pie than that coconut cream pie at Dahlia. It literally is the one item that keeps people coming there every single day. Very fresh, very creamy, absolutely best of breed coconut cream pie. Tom, if you are listening, this is the reason that Dahlia is successful -- but one little smidgeon of feedback -- the crust could be just a little bit flakier. But, don't get me wrong -- you still have the best in town! Readers, you can even go and get a $2 mini-pie "bite" there if you don't want to buy the whole thing. Like a cupcake, but in pie form. YUM and keeps your calorie count in check as well. :)

Great Brunch Spot – My husband and I have been hearing about this place so we decided to give it a try, and we were not disappointed. The brunch was amazing! We have sense been back several times and have taken out of town guests who shared our sentiments. The wait staff is always friendly. We have been for dinner as well and wasn’t as thrilled, we enjoy the brunch menu a lot more. The price is a little high for 2 people if you get a Mimosa or Bloody Mary, but it’s worth the splurge!

Pretty decent Sunday lunch. – I was not blown away, but it was a nice meal.

I had a crab cake with some roasted potatoes which was very nice. My wife had the cheese burger and tells me that "the meat was very juicy and the veg was perfect. The fries were nicely seasoned".

I will go out again to try the full menu. I really hope to be blown away! Please don't let me down again Seattle!

Good Northwest fusion food – I have been to the Dahlia Lounge many times and on every occasion, I have absolutely loved the appetizers. They are always impeccably crafted and delicious food pairings.

I always enjoy the main courses but not always as much as the first course. Their beverages are good and my friends liked the wine chosen by the waiter.

Dessert is also a good choice, with many tempting offerings. The creme carmel is quite nice and one friend of mine loves the coconut creme pie. The donuts are my least favorite, but hey, someone probably loves them.

The service has always been very friendly and tasteful, and they have offered to take back choices if I didn't like them. The prices are just what I would expect for an upscale, elegant restaurant, but obviously they're not cheap.

Very "good" but not "GREAT" – We came to Seattle on a weekend visit from Portland. We decided to have dinner at the Dahlia Lounge based on it's reputation.

We each had the "Special" of the evening which was a New York Steak.

The meal was "Good" to be sure, but I wasnt at all "Amazed".

I had Oysters as an appetizer and I was a little unimpressed. The Steaks were Good to be sure, but not any better than other restaurants that serve New Yorks.

My wife didnt like the mashed potatoes that came with the steak. They were green due to being whipped with herbs of some sort. Almost like they were trying a little too hard to be creative (I thought they were ok).

I would recommend this restaurant, but I think the expectations should be lowered a bit. For a celebrity Chef, this is NOT what I'd expect.....I was expecting to be blown away.

In short, this is a very good restaurant but not "GREAT".....

The definition of mediocrity – My girlfriend and I live a few blocks away from the restaurant and decided to try it out. We had avoided it in the past because of the expensive prices but decided to treat ourselves. Don't make the same mistake we did! Save yourself some money and get a decent meal. There was nothing special about this place. Neither the food nor the service warrant the outrageous prices. We will not be dining there again.

Okay food, cool service – Our family of four came for lunch, and while the food was good, it wasn't outstanding or memorable. The salads were salads with nothing special to mark them from other restaurants, the tomato soup was good but truly not anything that stood out. What was memorable was the decidedly cool attitude of our server. She was servicable but not helpful nor warm in anyway, she was much more responsive to the businessmen lunching behind us. The lunch menu is very short, by the way. Be forewarned. If I were going to spend $20 a head on lunch, I wouldn't do it here.
