Food was great. Server was unexceptional for what we paid. I expect more at a fine dining establishment. Overall good but server could be more attentive and friendly.
Absolutely amazing. Would go back!
Personable, friendly service, delicious food. Best scallops and risotto ever.
Craig was awesome ....
Perfect service and food. King crab and oysters highly recommended
I couldn’t believe we had to pay for some bread...
Decent, was not mind blowing but service was excellent enough to try their food again. Didn’t like the fact they charge for bread when it wasn’t even hot. Oh well.
The service was great. We were interested in a Rose wine, and asked the waitress her recommendation.... she CC admitted that she didn’t know much about the selection, but sent someone over that was able to help us out. We loved the wine he suggested. The food was good, we split a lot of stuff and they were totally cool with it. Overall it was a fun girls night.
The service was seriously lacking. Food good. As the waiter presented the bill he told us of a 21% service charge assessed to all diners. Ridiculous charge for subpar experience.
Awesome food and our waitress was superbe with the two toddlers!
18 choices for oysters.....wow. Are waiter was very good, let him choose a nice selection of 5 different oysters. So good!
From the awesome oysters on the half shell recommendation to the seafood pasta and salmon entrees, the meal and service were great.
Oysters and chowder were absolutely amazing! Had the sockeye salmon, tasted fresh and well cooked
Always a good bet for great food when in Seattle. Easy to find, great location, and comfortable.
the oysters here are wonderful. we got a large platter, a side salad, and a loaf of their sourdough. It was the perfect dinner in Seattle.
I have been here 3 times within the last 3 months. I am a local, and a lover of seafood. The first visit I was treated wonderfully, my best friend was in town and our server made some fabulous recommendations. She connected with us on a personal level and recommended dishes.
The second time was my anniversary with my partner. Not only was our reservation late, we had requested a window table and was told they gave our table up but if we wanted we could wait 30 min for another one. Our server leaves us at the table with no menus or water for about 15 minutes. When he comes over, he is smug and seems as if he has no time for us. No recommendations, no warm welcome, nothing. A screen would’ve been a better server.
The third time was a date night with my partner. This time we were able to get a table with a window all the way in the back. Again we sat at our table for 15 minutes without being brought menus or water. When the server came over he again did not make ANY attempt to connect with us or tell us about some of the food. As we are huge foodies and have questions about pairing. Our drinks arrived after waiting more, with a sweated glass (it had been made and then sat for some tome before it got to us). I ordered a gimlet and was given a half brown lime. My partner ordered a McCallan shot with a rock ($20 shot of whiskey), he was given a glad with a shot and ice from the soda machine filled the glass. The whisky was watered down immediately and ruined the taste. We then get to the oysters and clams, both were absolutely amazing. Best oysters in the state, clams were perfect. We ordered a side of Brussels sprouts which were close to inedible. When they arrived at the table they were cold, with cold cheese on top.
The device we were then given has little explanation. We were told to read the pamphlet and if we had questions to ask. The device died in the middle of processing payment and we sat there for 10 minutes waiting for our server to return.
I first are here when they opened in the mid 1970s. Then again in the early 2000s. And this past week.
The food sadly is just not very good. If you have " been around" a little bit, you know you are eating tourist food on the Seattle waterfront. I had hoped they raised their game a little. Rent is probably expensive and they try to keep prices reasonable for the tourist crowd. The result is mediocre food. Same experience I have had there all three times.
The pan fried oysters were mostly bread, not oyster, the potato concoction was not very tasty. The steamed vegetables were not overcooked, but so much spice was added it really overdid the effect. The apple cobbler was just sliced cooked apples in a caramel sauce. The was no crust ( cobbler) at all!
Our server Charles was great. He made the evening more interesting by explaining how different kinds of oysters are farmed. All of us really enjoyed that. Good ambiance seated near the old wood timbers that were part of the original warehouse.
Overall...fun knowledgeable server, nice ambiance Unfortunately the food was not so great but edible Not horribly expensive for what we got. Maybe you get what you pay for. Perhaps that is fair. Had we paid for more expensive meals I may have been a bit more displeased. If you go and know much about food, keep your expectations low and you will probably be fine.
Outstanding chilli shrimp and house salad. Both gluten free and filling.
Excellent food. Excellent service. Just a great meal overall.
Excellent place for seafood on the Sound. Our waiter was superb and helped us pick which oysters to try since it was a new food for us. The food was excellent (salmon and fish/chips), a little on the expensive side but that seems to be expected at such a fine establishment. Would visit again when in Seattle and looking for seafood.
They forgot to put in our order for our entrees and we waited almost an hour until they realized what happened.
We were in Seattle for a vacation and chose Elliott's for dinner. Our waiter was attentive and so friendly. The food was great. especially loved the scallops and risotto. We did think the entrée prices were a bit high, but the food was really good. We would recommend this place!
Hee hee hoo hoo
The crispy white shrimp appetizer plate was good but slightly undercooked. Still edible or else I would have returned them. Chowder was delicious.
Marissa was and always is great. The food was excellent and the staff is always very attentive.
Bad service and mediocre food.
Oysters were great, fish and chips were not worth $25. Definitely not a place that should be putting a automatic 20% gratuity on every bill.
Our waiter was attentive and very knowledgeable about oyster and beer pairing selections.
Our waiter was outstanding. Food was terrific. Spicy crab chowder was the best.
The food was great. The server was wonderful and the bill was confusing showing a 20% surcharge. We wanted the waiter to get the tip and we would not know that by the bill, so we had to tip in addition but would like to have that a clear message. Great time...
We had a lot of fun. The food was delicious and our server was very nice. Great birthday celebration.
I have dietary restrictions and asked for sautéed carrots instead of the roasted vegetables because the roasted vegetables have garlic in them. They were able to accommodate me but the carrots were awful. How can you mess up carrots? My fish was good though. My husband had sockeye salmon and he said it was not good. Our last experience at Elliotts wasn’t good so we will not be returning. our waiter was fine and was very patient with our friend who asks many many questions. My husband didn’t think he was very good that’s why I gave him three stars
Food quality has deteriorated and they now have an automatic 20% gratuity.
Amazing food and great service. Beautiful view, too.
Great place. First time there, but would go again. Rockfish tacos were wonderful.
Traveling Seattle for the first time celebrating several occasions. It was a late night dinner for us and our server was awesome.
Besides the oyster..the food wasn’t the greatest. For $36 for my salmon entree, I expected to be wow. My husband Wagyu dinner was gross. For $40 thought it would be a thick steak but instead shredded meat. He commented “Smells like dog food.” Honestly my $150 dinner could of went somewhere else. I guess go here for oysters! The waiter was nice!
Our waiter Michael was awesome
We visited Elliott’s twice. The first time was for happy hour, and we sat at the bar and the food and service were FANTASTIC. So, we decided to come back on a Saturday evening for dinner. The service was severely lacking - slow, and inattentive, though when the server made an error with our order, she attempted to correct it with offering an additional appetizer, which we declined. The oysters were amazing, but the salmon was a rather small portion, and nothing special really relative to other restaurants we visited on our Seattle trip. The restaurant has great atmosphere and the food is generally very good, though we found the quality, value, and taste much better with our happy hour experience than our dinner experience.
We had the fish and chips, lobster Mac & cheese and the grilled scallops....hands down the grilled scallops takes the cake! Everything tasted amazing, we had good service and many helpful suggestions as this was our first time there.
