    Conversation is always a great place for brunch. Their B&B deal for 2 is amazing. You get 2 delicious entrees and a carafe of Mimosa in your choice of orange or grapefruit for a great price! It’s located conveniently close to Pike Place in case you’re in the mood for a Market walk after. Definitely recommend the Waffle…most buttery waffle I’ve ever had and the berry mix on top elevates it’s flavors. Will continue to return.

    If I wasn’t so hungry I would’ve walked out. The service was so lackluster for such a nice property. I felt like we were a burden to the server to have to bring us our food. Vibe was lame…would never go back.

    My wife and I love brunch, so when I was looking for a new spot to try for our wedding anniversary, I came across Conversation. We had their biscuits & gravy, classic benedict, and shared a waffle. Prices were decent for downtown Seattle, and the Brunch & Booze special was definitely worth it! Not to mention, fantastic customer service all around. I'll be back for those biscuits & gravy, and I'm looking forward to trying their lunch/dinner menus.

    The food was good, and the service was okay. We were very upset to see a hidden 20% fee added to our bill which was not specified before we sat down. I felt like the server or host should have let us know about this before taking our order.

    ConversationResponded on July 20, 2022Hi there! So sorry to hear that this was not made clear. We do state our automatic 20% service charge on all menus provided as well as on the bottom of the check once delivered. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed the food; We would love to have you join us again in the future!

    I don’t always enjoy eating out because I am gluten and dairy free. They were so friendly and accommodating and I can’t remember ever enjoying food so much. The cucumber starter, eggplant main, and half chicken were some of the most amazing meals I’ve ever tasted. True artistry.

    What a colossal disappointment! With so many choices, don’t waste your time here. The staff could not even provide a basic wine list (we got 3 different stories about that). We ordered 2 apps that were ok, not great, and just decided to leave. $99 for two glasses of champagne, a small tuna Tatar, and 6 oysters thanks to the 20% service charge! Oh yes, lousy service at 20% with 3% of that going to the hotel that we weren’t even staying at? The entire experience was insulting, to say the least.

    Food was good. Ambience was good. I think it would be a much better experience if properly staffed (which I recognize is difficult to do these days). So, while our server was friendly, knowledgeable and got everything right, the restaurant was very understaffed. To her credit, our server warned us that the chicken dish (which 2 in our party ordered) took 30 minutes to prepare. Sadly, in reality it took 55 minutes, which is a long time to wait for an entree. Long gaps with infrequent check-ins to refresh drinks, clear plates, etc. If you have flexibility in your plans, this is a great place. If tight schedule, I'd consider other options.

    My girlfriends and I went for brunch on Sunday at 10:30 a.m. and we were perfectly pleased! We made a reservation but really didn’t need it. There were people there but if we didn’t have a reservation, we wouldn’t have had to wait hours for a table. The food was amazing and the service was likewise. It seems more family friendly than presumed—but as a group of 20-year-olds, we were unbothered bc people were respectable and kept noise to a tolerable level.

    We booked dinner here for my birthday and it was wonderful. Our server Danelle was fantastic - very attentive and personable!! The food was absolutely delicious; we ordered the burrata, roasted cauliflower, and the charcuterie board. Presentation was gorgeous (especially the burrata) and the flavors worked very well. We also ordered dessert and I would very much recommend the dark chocolate custard (one of the best deserts I've ever eaten)
