We have our favorite restaurant in Seattle when we are going to Seattle Rep, The Crow. We fancied a change and we are so pleased we did. The Tilikum is a friendly restaurant. Looking out at the Space Needle and seeing the Monorail flashing by created a special atmosphere. The food was delicious and the wine selection excellent. I had... More

Would HIGHLY recommend reservations for breakfast! Very small quaint restaurant with not much seating. It's worth the visit and staff recommendations were superb. Delicious food and a great way to start your day.

Absolutely yummy. Unfortunately the service is a little bit pushy and cold. I loved the grilled cheese but could pass on the attitude.

We chose Tilikum Place Cafe based on ratings and were not disappointed. It is a short walk from the Space Needle. The cafe itself is small and easy to miss. Inside is a lovely and quaint and personal. The service was outstanding. We enjoyed squash soup and French onion soup as well as their signature chicken. The chicken was great... More

We came here on accident we walked by and we were lucky they were able to fit us in. The place was so packed and after eating we knew why. The menu featured many unique and tasty items. A great vibe too. A foodies paradise a must visit in Seattle.

This unassuming cafe, tucked amidst showier restaurants is not to be missed. I dined for Sunday brunch and even arriving at 8:45 am, reservations are needed. Yet, even with the cafe buzzing at full capacity, the meal was served leisurely and service was pleasantly unrushed. The food is spectacular. And my only regret is not ordering more off the special's... More

This is a great little cafe, close to the Space Needle, that offers a very tasty brunch. Unique menu items, and a very homestyle feel.

Great for those that love fine dining/ foodie experience. Their menu changes based on what is in and their specials for the evening go quickly! The chicken is a staple and never leaves the menu due to popularity. The food and service is GREAT! Be sure to get the noodle/pasta appatizer. Like a light white sauce to noodle with a... More

I have been having quite a few mediocre meals lately which has led me to give some less than stellar reviews. That all changed this afternoon. I arrived in Seattle having flown in from Philadelphia. By the time I got to the hotel it was about 1 PM in Seattle, 4 PM "my time" and I hadn't really eaten. I... More
