"My girlfriend took me here for a late birthday dinner, and it was my first time being there, and hands down had one of the best services there. Our waiter was tentative and patient with us. We definitely ordered more than enough food for the two of us but the quality and the flavors were delicious we barely had leftovers. We started with the Baked Brie and holy, it was SO good, that it disappeared instantly. We also had the cheese and meat with some olives which were also on point; you can never go wrong with a good charcuterie! Then split the Arugula & Radish Salad, and for our mains, we had the Maine Lobster Baked Mac & Cheese and the Roasted Alaskan Halibut. The Mac & Cheese was literally one of the best mac & cheese I've ever had, and they did not disappoint on the pieces of lobster included in it. The halibut was perfectly cooked and perfectly seasoned, didn't need to add anything, which is usually rare for me. Overall experience was amazing; I enjoyed every bit of it. I would definitely recommend this place if you're looking for a cute place to celebrate or have a nice dinner out with your significant other or friends." - Joyce

“YES, YES and YES !! I stopped by this place because I was looking for real food and not burgers again. And finally, I found the Graal in Seattle. Nice little location, with a sympathetic terrasse. The menu is pure as the place. The food menu is clean and easy to understand. I had "La Planche du Fermier," and it was like being home to me. The "Tome" was great, the "Pâté de Foie de volaille" a pure délice, and the "Beurre Breton," finally the best butter I found in the USA, period.” - Robert

“Food. Wine. Service. Atmosphere. All top notch! Came in on a Sunday night around 8pm without a reservation and was sat immediately. Had an outdoor high-top and loved the outdoor lighting and casual atmosphere. Our server Lauren was personable and very friendly. I loved the small 2 oz. wine tastes, which allowed the opportunity to try so many. We ordered the bread with ganache and chevre, which came out hot and delicious. The mac n cheese had truffle oil and was one of the best I've ever had (and I am very picky about my mac n cheese). Would definitely recommend and hope to go back next time we are in Seattle!” - Kelsey
