My wife and I ate here on a Thursday night before heading to the Edmonds Center for the Arts and a concert by Jeff Bridges and The Abiders (which was excellent). We got to the restaurant during happy hour (4-6 p.m.), so ate and drank at much better prices than the normal menu. We sat upstairs in the loft, which... More

Super cool place to get cocktails. An outdoor area that is sheltered from the rain. You can ask for blankets when it is cold. Great atmosphere. However, the only good menu item for food: their fries are really. That is it. The more expensive the dinner, the more disappointing it is prepared. Keep it simple. Do not order the salmon.

We stumbled upon The Loft while wandering through downtown Edmonds today. The recent reviews suggest The Loft is closed, but the closing was apparently short-lived as they are very much open. We arrived early-ish, around 5pm, and had our pick of seating. The main bar area is narrow and small, but the seating in both front and back is spacious... More

I was going to purchase a Living Social Coupon when it was posted. Went to The Loft Facebook page to see what their lunch hours were before I purchased... and found out it was CLOSED ... Out of Business! WHY were they selling Certificates if they were no longer in business?

You enter a very narrow and crowded bar and are led to this wonderful outdoor room, ceiling of translucent plexiglass with walls of trees and bamboo. I has the Kobe sliders and bacon wrapped asparagus which were ecstacial, if there such a word. The others had the shrimp fettuchini and salads. The food was excellent, the wine terrific, the service... More

I've been to the loft 3 times and it has gotten worse each time. The food isn't very good and the employee's are VERY unfriendly. There are many better choices in Edmonds, don't waste your time here.

There's way too much to say about our bad experiences here, but I think this says it all: We WATCHED our food be delivered to another table, saw the other table TOUCH the food and figure out it wasn't what they ordered, and watched the server TRANSFER our food from their table to ours. UNACCEPTABLE and GROSS. Nice atmosphere, OK... More

The Loft has wonderful food selections and a nice variety of options. You can share a few tapas or order your own meal and I have never been disappointed. The service seems to have slipped this past year - leaving me feeling like I am not valued as a customer. The back courtyard area is delightful but I hate how... More
