Jerry Traunfeld is a flavor savant. His knowledge of Asian flavors is encyclopedic and he weaves them all together at Poppy. Had a different thali every time I went and was never disappointed. Get the dessert. It's so worth it.

I rarely give five stars but this was a very fun dining experience and the food was delicious. The cod was exceptional and all the side dishes were excellent and thoughtful. The deserts were also delightful. The food is creative and a fusion of Indian style presentation with international twists. Afterward I was satisfied but did not feel like a... More

Great restaurant and service. Served Thali style- main dish with small side dishes .Try the Ling Cod Thali or Beef Thali. Side dishes are just the right size to have 5 of them with it being too much food. For an appetizer try the popover filled with cured ham very yummy. For dessert we had the Pana Cotta & Marshmallow... More

The food was unusual and beautifully presented. Don't know how to describe it but it was certainly a taste sensation involving lots of different food combinations and flavours. Absolutely loved it and would go back in a minute. The service was great and knowledgeable. Very nice ambience.

Thali style I think it is popular in Nepal. A center round plate and several smaller bowls. Unusual taste profiles. Worth trying. Of the 7 items I liked 6. Service was a bit slow.

I dined at Poppy with some wonderful friends for my birthday, and during restaurant week. It was a great celebration that started in the bar. The bartender… or should I say “mixologist” started the evening off right. While I am sure the drinks on the menu are good, the drinks he made just by asking our likes and dislikes were... More

Good friends introduced us to Poppy and we were delighted they did. They are food connoisseurs and we all enjoy testing new recipes. Poppy is an attractive setting - colors are subtle and reflect the name. We had a great bartender who recommended a wonderful wine to me. My companions all had cocktails which they loved. As it was restaurant... More

Great, tasty food presented in modestly unusual forms/ingredient mixes. Very enjoyable and original. Wine list is well chosen and matches menu well.

Poppy has its own garden, and the mixed drinks are seasonal to match--a much more interesting option than wine. In March, there is a nettle, wine, and cava palate cleanser--perfect with a thali (many small plates around a main dish.) In restaurant week, or March's 'dine around Seattle' the deals are particularly good: all this, plus appetizer and desert.
