Amazingly delicious! Short wait! Friendly and welcoming staff. Ambience is great ! Most importantly the food is spiritually delicious! Check out their specials!
Elyse was a wonderful server!
I am an eggs benedict lover and i can easily say that the best eggs benedict i've ever had is at toulouse. They can make it with crab (my favorite), ham or duck! I tried the buttermilk beignets for the first time recently and i had definitely been missing out, they are bites of heave. Make sure to go during breakfast happy hour, everything is cheaper and the service is still fantastic.
I've been to many restaurants in the Seattle/Eastside area and this place knocked my socks off. We had the duck confit, prawns with sausage, even thinking of it makes my mouth water. The ambience, service, everything was sensational. Agreed on other reviews, worst thing is deciding what to have. Anyone would loves and enjoys food must try this place, I promise it won't be your last time.
9-11 M-F (almost) all their breakfasts are $6! Worst thing about this place is it's so hard to decide what to have.
I went here twice last week, prices and the food was great. I had the friday sandwich ""BLT"" unique with dejion mustard. the other time I had a cajun breakfast with eggs and crawfish in a sauce. potatoes were wonderful too. I little unusual combinations but surprisingly delicious. good vibe and decor too. not far from Seattle center.
Sitting down at Toulouse Petit you will not feel as if you?re magically transported to the heart of NOLA; in fact it looks like it's older brother Pesos - just less Dia del los Muertos.
Sitting down, you will be welcomed by a great wait staff (judging the cuteness factor big and little brother have the same taste)and surprised to hear an eclectic array of music. then the menu comes, and your mind goes every direction with the vast selection in front of you!
Side note: People will complain about authenticity - we are in the PNW not NOLA. It is great food, with a Creole twist. Think of it this way, anytime someone gets blue crab in the land of King and Dungeness I am a fan.
Toulouse is also affordable, the food menu features 50 menu items priced under $5, and at least ten of their best selling cocktails are now priced at $6.95
It will take more than a few trips to work your way through the 75+ menu items; and if you?re like me you may get stuck along the way. For me, it is the fried green tomatoes with blue crab and the BBQ shrimp. One day I'll branch out, and when I do...I've got some choice to make - actually over 70.
I am especially wary of large menus, because there's no way that a kitchen that has to cook close to 100 dishes can cook them all well and reliably. Either I chose well at Toulouse Petit or their batting average is off-the-charts, because we enjoyed everything we ordered. One trick seems to be than many of the happy hour bites ($3-$7, more or less) are served cold or with minimal cooking, so much of the work is done ahead of time. Worked for me, because the tuna tartare was pitch-perfect and the frisee salad with a poached egg and lardons was exactly as I hoped.
The architecture and decor are gorgeous, with dozens of candles on the walls and exquisite tilework on the floors, walls and even in the bathroom. I would probably not go here on a weekend night, though, as it seems to be smack in the middle of the LQA sceney-scene. Our server started out snooty until we apparently ordered her favorite dishes and she warmed up to us. Still, I definitely got a vibe that I would be underdressed and not cool enough to be seen there during the hipper hours.
I'd definitely like to sample more of the menu and try it for brunch, as that seems to garner particular raves.
I visited for a late night supper and so was already hungry when I arrived. The mega menu was a bit overwhelming, I was finding SO many things that sounded amazing that I found it hard to decide. I was close to ordering one of everything, you know like when you go to the grocery store hungry and buy everything that looks good? I refrained however and was pretty happy with the salad and small plate I ordered. I need to go back with a group for happy hour, 50 items $5 and under? That's how I like to sample a restaurant's menu, order lots of small plates and share, getting a lil taste of everything. All in all, was a really nice place, looking forward to trying some of their other offerings.
