Tilth is one of the only certified organic restaurants in Seattle. The food is wonderful and very rich. A real dining experience. The staff are all very friendly and attentive....

OK - Too Pricey 4/16/2011

Good: Ambience. Bad: Service Menu confusing Steak too gamey. Improvements: More variety on the menu Steak less gamey Very confusing for 1st time visitor. Other: I think that I would go back if the price was about 1/2. But with a moderately priced bottle of wine and no dessert, it cost me and my wife about $175. We were just confused at how the appetizers and entrees worked. We ordered: Mussels - very expensive and ok for appetizers Risotto - it was pretty good Halibut - the celery overpowered the nice fish Beef - it was way too gamey! Just disappointed! We were so looking forward to going too!. more

A very nice evening at Tilth 7/5/2007

My wife took me there for my birthday. The service was excellent. Our server had great recommendations from the menu (you have to try the duck burgers!) The wine list is good and the food hit the spot. more

Not there yet, especially in service 2/18/2007

We also had disappointing service from the indifferent staff, really a shame for what shouldve been a special meal. Our best dishes were excellent (the duck burgers my favorite), but two of the appetizers and entrees, half of what the four of us ordered, were ordinary. At the prices they ask, eveything should be a knockout. They'll have a winner when they focus on making everything special for their each of their customers, every night. They're not there yet. more

The Mini Duck Burgers make it worth it... 1/28/2007

Went with a party of five for a birthday last weekend and all the food was fantastic. We shared a full order of the Manila clams which were wonderful, as well as one of the salads and the Crispy Pork Belly. The crispy pork belly was very rich, tasty and not surprisingly a little fatty. The flavors were great, it was just extremely rich. 2 friends got the seared tuna, the other two got the confit...I got the mini duck burgers, and I have to say they were absolutely delightful. Succulent and flavorful, juicy as all get out, everyone coveted my lil duck burgers so much I ended up handing out a couple. The heirloom tomato ketchup was tangy and complemented the ground duck well and the fingerling potato chips were a novel idea done right. The dessert were fantastic as well. Service was great--our waitress was always quick to answer any questions or make suggestions or accommodations and although it was pricey, it was well worth it. I'd like to go back to check out their brunch. more

Disappointing 1/9/2007

I've wanted to try the food at Tilth for months - ever since I started reading about it. I've only heard good things from friends who have eaten there, but I was very disappointed. My boyfriend and I decided to try it last Sunday for my birthday brunch. I figured if there is any day I won't feel guilty spending $12 on scrambled eggs (or having my boyfriend spend $12 on scrambled eggs) it's my birthday. So we went... The service was some of the worst I've ever experienced - there were only about four tables seated the entire time we were there, and yet, the server disappeared for TWENTY minutes before taking our order. Even then, the order was wrong (!) - I ordered the truffled scrambled eggs, he brought a two egg breakfast with sausage (huh?). He apologized and put my correct order in, only to bring it out wrong again (!!!) - this time it was just the toast (wheat instead of white), but he had literally asked me what kind of toast I wanted four times. We also ordered the $8 bloody marys, which were almost undrinkable. They make their own tomato juice with no salt or something, and they didn't seem to use any other flavorings (or vodka, that I could tell). I had to spoon salt into it (nope, no salt at all!) just to drink it. The woman who made them asked how they were and I said (trying to be nice) that they could have used some salt, to which she replied "yeah, we lost our salt thing". What does that mean? Why were they still making them? The food, itself, was fine, but terribly overpriced. My boyfriend got the salmon hash, which was good, but not spectacular, and I got the truffled scrambled eggs (good, but smallish portion and not worth $12). I just don't know what was going on that morning. Another table had to flag the waiter down to get a coffee refill - AND had to point out the coffee pot to him when he couldn't seem to find it. Very strange. more

Tilth - solid new restaurant in Wallingford (it's organic, too) 11/9/2006

My wife and I were big fans of Mandalay Cafe on 45th, and were sad to see them go out of business. The good news is that the old Mandalay space is now occupied by Tilth, an all-organic restaurant led by a crew of Earth & Ocean veterans. We dropped by last Saturday around 8pm with no reservation. The old dark interior had been brightened by a new paint job and much-improved lighting, giving the space a bright, fresh feel. While most tables were occupied, we were quickly offered an open two-top near the bar and settled in to scan the menu. Tilth's concept is innovative (even surprising) preparations of all-organic (mostly local) ingredients, served in a small-plates format. We struggled a little with the clear desire to be "different" (no comfort food here), but settled on five offerings that spanned their range: a soup, a salad, a fish, short ribs, and a savory custard (billed as a mushroom creme brulee, complete with carmelized sugar crust). Of this range, the soup and fish were excellent, the salad very good, the custard well-executed and fun but probably not a repeat, and the ribs only OK. We paired all this with a nice sauvignon blanc by the glass, passed on the dessert offering (a little too esoteric to catch our eye after a solid meal), and would up with a tab in the $100 range, tax and tip included. Overall, our experience at Tilth was a good first start for a restaurant that's still shaking down its operations. Ambiance, service, food and wine were all well above average, with a few standout moments and an interesting, differentiated approach on both ingredients and preparation. We'll certainly go back, and hope the neighborhood embraces what's certainly the most high-concept restaurant 45th has seen in a long while. more
