The Corson Building is a home, a restaurant, and a community. We are dedicated to food, celebration, community, and culture, and work to provide one of the few human experiences we all have in common: eating. We are built on a foundation of relationships with a diverse collection of friends, teachers, hunters, farmers, foragers, importers, winemakers, fishermen, artists, and activists. We work together to celebrate the daily nourishment that food provides. Unless we are booked for a private event.

Lovely place; about 2.5x too expensive – I heard great things about the Corson Building and was charmed by the ambience when I arrived. Food is very good; rustic and served family style. The setting is also unique: a converted old building under a freeway exit in the historically industrial Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle. The service is friendly as well. Had I paid the $90 (dinner) + $30 (wine) = $120 (total), it would have met my expectations, although at those prices I would expect nothing short of French Laundry, Le Bec Fin or Gramercy Tavern, a pier of which this restaurant is decidedly not. Nonetheless I was prepared to be delighted by this place and ready to pay $120 (plus tip) for the experience. Two things really disappointed me: 1) the wine pairing really meant a 1oz pour with every course, and 2) the price per person at my table turned out to be over $250. Of course (1) is related to (2) because we asked for some bottles of house wine to compensate for the skimpy pours and were – we later discovered – charged extra for that. Food aside, I just saw a more fundamental business problem here, namely a large discrepancy between results and expectations. Corson is a wonderful and creative restaurant but I guess I just expected a lot more from a $120 per head dinner. And what I got actually cost me over twice that amount. I’m sure the result was unintended, and perhaps we caught them on an off night, but all told the experience felt like a gouge.

Fresh, local, and tasty – We ate at the Corson Building on their third night of service at the end of June. It reminded me a lot of what the Herbfarm used to be when it was in Fall City--an intimate, personal, rustic setting with fantastic food. It really felt like a dinner party (though Matt and Elizabeth are far better cooks than any of my friends). The tables are communal and food is served family-style. As you arrive you're offered sparkling wine and delicious appetizers as you take in the surroundings (garden, chickens, lovely old building...a micro-farm right under I-5). Our meal was excellent (especially the morels and artichokes and the olive oil cake dessert) and the wine pairings introduced us to some Italian varietals we hadn't tried before. I appreciated the family-style approach because it allowed for a very relaxed pace to the meal and encouraged at least some conversation with others at the table. It was an absolutely lovely evening and we'll go again if we can get reservations.

The latest from Seattle's culinary golden boy, Matt Dillon, this un-restaurant takes reservations only and is open only a few nights a week. – In Short With Matt Dillon and Emily Crawford co-chefing in the kitchen and the dashing Wylie Bush in the front of the house, this newly remodeled and much-talked-about building will open to the public several nights a week for prix-fixe suppers. Anxious diners should call now to score a reservation while they can--The Corson Building has been the most talked about (un)restaurant in Seattle since last May, when the then-unfinished historic building hosted bad-boy chef Marco Pierre White for a night on his book tour.
