What Insiders Are Saying
The Corson Building, an elegant home that was built in 1910, has been repurposed as an upscale American restaurant. Come here to propose.
We were here visiting from our home in France. This is the best meal we’ve had in Seattle in years. Such interesting flavors and textures and everything was cooked perfectly. Plus Matt the owner is wonderful to have as a part of your evening.
We enjoyed the thought put into every bite of food. Very artistic food combinations with a lot of attention to texture and flavor pairings. We ate the best lemon tart I’ve ever had.
The one thing that was just okay for me was the seating. There are two long farm-style tables with multiple parties seated at each. The evening we were there it was mostly couples including me and my husband. We sat in very friendly proximity to another couple and it was hard to have an intimate conversation without listening to the adjacent couple’s conversation.
We had an incredible evening. There were 6 of us; because of the communal seating, there were an additional 4 people at our table - part of the fun was getting to know them! We had course after course of amazing food - lamb served two ways, some amazing seared scallops, a spectacular lemon tart. Special dishes (also fabulous) came out for those with more restricted diets. It’s a splurge - but well worth it!
There was a private party going on upstairs so the noise level may have been higher than it normally is.
New Years dinner was a well balanced affair. The staff was excellent and the dish quality was what you would expect from such a renowned restaurant. Thanks for a very enjoyable evening.
The Corson Building is one of those hidden gems that people hope to find before it becomes so popular that you cannot get into it and LONG before the staff starts leveraging their reputation at the expense of their kitchen to fill the house. Truly an exceptional experience with a perfect blend of 5-star service and food blended with a warm, come-as-you-are ambiance which is perfect for everything from a romantic dinner to a pre-theater treat. Great for groups or special events, the quality and creativity of the food is surpassed only by the wine list -- as a life-long foodie, I can say without reservation that every dish was a delight and a few were truly exceptional. Run, don't-walk, to the Corson Building. You will be glad you did!
Outstanding culinary experience. Would recommend for special occasions. Worth the price.
annual holiday dinner with friends. as always Corson Building does not disappoint. one of my top 5 restaurants ever. food and ambiance is impeccable!
I'd been wanting to go here a long time. We went on a Sunday night for the prix-fixe dinner. The food was good, but a bit too repetitive. The fish course was incredibly good, but the rest was not at that level. Our main complaint was the noise level: it became physically painful to be there as people resorted to shouting louder and louder to get heard which then just ramped it up to the next level for them to have to shout louder. I think I would like to try it again when it is warm enough to eat outside.
Our server was sincere and knowledgable, never overbearing but always on point. I am still thinking about the food and wine- so good! The atmosphere was accommodating and unique without being overbearing. A great value. Had a fantastic time and will def be back.
Thank you, as always, you are so kind and lovely. The food is tremendous, and even more so with such generous service. You make the meal. So glad we can walk to our sweet neighborhood gem.
Everything was so delicious with complex flavors. This is the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion.
Beautiful experience all around and would highly recommend. Impeccable service and food.
Amazing as always.
We can't wait to return. We had JUST A FABULOUS MEAL>>>>ALL 4.
The lecture and directions on how to conduct ourselves were a little long and took away from a direct experience of the space and the surrounding guests.
Service was ok, not exceptional.
The best food and the best service period!
Every dish they served was delicious! Even though there is the recall on Romaine lettuce the substitute for caesar was cabbage and macadamia nut salad that was delicious. More than enough food. We told them of some food allergies ahead of time, they did an excellent job accommodating! The atmosphere was nice and quaint. Would definitely recommend and would definitely go back!
Simply amazing! The place is gorgeous and will make you think you're on vacation in another country! The staff was super attentive and the food was beyond delicious. We will definitely be coming back and recommending to friends and family! Definitely make reservations!
Delicious as always. Thank you for taking such good care of this celiac. It's such a treat to eat there.
Every bite food was incredibly delicious as usual.....That cod with the fennel, new potatoes and aioli. OMG. Love love love this place 😍
Great little restaurant in Georgetown. Fresh menus daily with Knowledgeable wait staff.
I can’t say anything but good things about The Corson Building! The food, the staff and the experience are all top notch. This is truly a Seattle gem and I am looking forward to my next visit to see Matt and team! Well done.
Best northwest restaurant I have ever experienced!
I truly love this place. its hard to say if the food or the service is better. but suffice it to say, both are consistently excellent. I'm always impressed
It’s always a wonderful evening at The Corson Building, particularly with friends who’ve never been there before. It’s such a unique setting and the food and wine selections are fabulous.
Best food I've had in a long time. The price was appropriate for the caliber of the food. Service was attentive and the music wasn't too loud. It is my new favorite restaurant and I will sing it's praises.
This was our first time at the Corson Building. Matthew was very accommodating and friendly (owner). The menu is small but delicious. We shared 2 appetizers with 5 of us and we each had our own entree. It was more than enough. It's a small, cozy hard to find place in Georgetown but we will definitely be back. The tables are designed to hold around 10 people so we shared a table with another group. It really didn't matter at all as we were able to converse with our group very well.
Great food and amazing building but we had to share our table with someone who we didn't know, this made the experience a little more disappointing. I wish we had a heads up on the phone at least
Outstanding food, wine and service. Enjoyed every single bite. Clearly presenting delicious and tasty food is a passion in this establishment. Wish I lived closer to Corson Building but it's a big commute from Charleston, SC
Amazing dinner at the Corson building! We loved the Greek inspired lamb and beautiful seasonal cocktails.
One of the best restaurant-experience in Seattle...
Great food,service,and location
The place is well hidden with limited parking. The food is quite family style and updates everyday. I especially like the meat, like lamb kabab they cooked and salad selection.
Our party were excited about dining at the Corson Building having read reviews. Having never been there, it was difficult to find and extremely difficult to find parking. We discovered upon entry that all the tables were communal, and we were seated at a table with 2 adults and a 2 year old which was not a good mix. The menu was confusing and though the waitress explained how best to manage, the portion size and variety of items was rather minimal. What could have saved the loud and cloistered ambiance was the food. Though the descriptions were complex, the food was rather bland and tasteless. After leaving, there was agreement among the four of us that it would not be a restaurant we would visit again.
The building and gardens are beautiful. The whole ambience was amazing. You must enjoy sitting with strangers. To me, this was part of the charm. If you are a foodie that enjoys the company of other foodies, you will be in heaven. If not, you won't be.
Also, be prepared to spend time. This is not a rushed meal. Just enjoy the experience.
Perfect for a special occasion, especially if you have a group you want to celebrate with.
We came here for a date night. The restaurant has common table seating inside, but we met another really nice couple and ended up having a fun evening of conversation. We started with a tomato and nectarine shared salad, and then moved on to the lamb kofte and halibut entrees. The halibut was amazing along with all of its accoutrements. The lamb had excellent flavors, but was a little dry. Overall wonderful experience.
Delicious! The outdoor summer seating for Sunday supper was a lovely touch. Appreciate them being so wonderful about my special needs eating (celiac). Can’t wait to return.
The Corson Building Restaurant is the best food I ever had, creative menus with an amazing mix of tastes, a symphony of deliciousness. Menu changes daily, but also they change with the seasons, and every season we are impressed.
Recommend making reservations..
The Corson Building exceeded our hopes and expectations. The meal was beyond lovely. Matt, the owner, was our amazing host & waiter. His patience with my senior parents and his interest in sharing about the building and the menu was exceptional. I so look forward to going back.
Everything was amazing! The service, ambience, wine and especially the food!
