This was my 3rd visit. Staff seemed tired and not as attentive. Food was a little less than I had hoped for. Probably won't return given other possibilities.

As a first timer, I enjoyed myself! We arrived earlier than our reservation time and sat at the bar until our table was ready. The bartenders were great, attentive and funny. Once we sat at our table and ordered food, I was impressed. The cauliflower, leek, crawfish cream soup was delicious. For our main course, my friend and I ordered the same thing, shrimp, crawfish and grits... grits were extremely thin, not southern style like I’m used to, so I ordered a side of rice to give my meal more body, instead of the “grit sauce.” We end up moving back to the bar when friends joined us. Overall a great experience and I can’t wait to go back!

I had the Rockfish although I really couldn't tell if it was actually fish. It wasn't like a fillet sitting in a bouillon with sauce drizzled over it. It was more like a couple pieces of fish drenched with too much bouillon and even more drizzle sauce to make it look fancy. If you run out of fish or don't have enough - say so. Don't try to fake it and charge +$20 for it

I tried a few of the Cajun options and it was a terrible mistake. The other options might have been better; but do not get anything in the Cajun section. That includes the worse hurricane I've ever had. The wait staff were outstanding.

Delicious!! The menu is overwhelming with all of the wonderful choices, but you can't go wrong! The Dungeness Crab and fried green tomatoes was divine. The gumbo, jambalya, and the shrimp with andouille sausage and cheesy grits was amazing! Definitely a place we will go back to!

Food was absolutely amazing and the atmosphere was lovely!
Great for date night. Awful to see that a „wage surcharge“ was added to the bill to support the staff‘s wages (not as part of tip)
Can only hope management adapts to support fair wages for their employees!

Delicious food and drinks! Great service and environment! The prawns in pesto sauce were amazingly delicious as an appetizer. For an entree, I got the lamb, beef, and pork bolegnese, which was fantastic! My girlfriend got the dungeness crab pasta, which I was a bit jealous of because I thought it tasted even better than mine! Overall, a great experience, and since there were so many other menu items that also caught my attention, I'll definitely be returning.

The décor and atmosphere are delightful. Reminded us of Paris, not New Orleans (where we were residents for more than a decade). The menu sounded like NOLA, but the food we had missed it. The recipes were not Creole or Cajun and the preparations seemed to have been made in batch and stored in the refrigerator. Good place for a drink and an app.

Went for a date night with my wife. We had a reservation but they were “running late” so eventually we got moved to the bar area, not great. We then proceeded to order drinks, appetizer and main. It took 20 min for the drinks to arrive, the second drink was equally slow. The waiter kept acting surprised and blaming some other person(s) for the delays. The appetizer was burnt, it was Brussels sprouts. The main dishes were decent, jambalaya and a pork chop but hardly spectacular. Overall, it was a sub par experience and for me personally, I would not be going there. Not that it’s terrible, but there are just many better options in Seattle, why waste another evening. Oh and no draft beer, why?

The food and service was OUTSTANDING. My sister ordered the roast duck and I ordered a salad with a poached egg and potato coins- both were excellently prepared and the duck with the most tender and juicy I’ve tasted in my life. The candlelit atmosphere created a warm and enjoyable dining environment. There was a mix up in the kitchen with my order and our waitress made sure it was fixed quickly and did everything to make it right. Highly highly highly recommend.

Waiter was polite considering how busy it was. A lot of food for the money, e.g. the hedgehog mushroom bowl was enough for 2-3 people as a side dish. Three cheese samples were small than expected. Same furnishings from 12 years ago last time i was there. Busy and vibrant place to go before a show at Seattle Rep nearby.

Food and service were both excellent on our recent visit. The only reason this review isn’t 5 stars in all categories is because the cane seat chairs are badly ripped and broken which not only makes them uncomfortable to sit in but creates an eye sore. Hope Toulouse Petit will spring for some new chairs soon so the atmosphere matches the food and service.

Based on the pictures online I got really excited about how this restaurant was made up in my mind. I do believe however in pointing out positive critiques and I would recommend taking away the disco ball and the choice of music that’s being played with the rest of the Decour this will make it a true experience New Orleans style .

Went here for a birthday dinner. The service and food were amazing! Authentic southern comfort food with a cool ambiance. Cocktails were great too. The only problem is there menu is very large and it was hard to decide what to have for dinner and desert. Not a bad problem to have for sure😎. Highly recommend for dinner, breakfast or HH
