The service was great and the food was delicious. Weren’t that hungry so we shared fish and chips, Caesar salad and some great raw oysters. The horseradish slaw was a nice surprise! Staff was attentive and everything seemed ‘COVID-19’ safe. Sitting outside, on the water, on a perfect Sunday afternoon made it perfect. As locals. We are Elliott’s fans!

Great outdoor seating by the water. Food was great. Love the shoguko oysters. Scallops were perfectly cooked and delicious. Food order got mixed up so there was a long delay. However all the staff was very apologetic and the meals were comped. We will definitely be back.

Prices are very high but the food is awesome. I gave value a 4-star rating because I do think everything is way overpriced. The drinks were only 20-20 as well.

I have been happy with the food quality and service at Elliott’s. Often at touristy places it is a big disappointment. Not here! Caesar salad is exceptionally decadent.

This was honestly the BEST experience Ive had. The food was fresh and amazing. We were seated promptly at our reserved time. The social disctancing and safety percautions were explained and we were able to enjoy our special occasion. When my boyfriend declined any dessert for his birthday celebration due to being KETO the waitress was sweet enough to bring two extra oysters with a candle on the sign. It was much appreciated. You could tell the staff was happy to be there

A good choice for outdoor dining on the waterfront. I felt the portion size was quite generous and the food was delicious.
Other than a 30 minute wait for a 6:30 reservation, I was very pleased.

The outdoor seating was perfect, right on the pier! The food was terrific, social distancing was implemented, and I was very comfortable at this location. I would recommend if anyone is looking for some great seafood, go here.

Elliot's is one of our go to waterfront places. With their outdoor seating right on the harbor there are plenty of sights to keep me visually entertained while sipping a drink. And, the food is some of the best seafood in Seattle!

Our server was phenomenal. Watching her with her tables was like artwork, she was a great conversationalist. View from patio was nice. They even had a hand written card for us, as we were celebrating our anniversary. Oysters were wonderful, great selection! Our entrees were just mediocre. I have the rock fish and my husband had the fish and chips. I would recommend for a light bite of oysters and chowder with water views but can skip the dinner.

Overall experience was good. My only complaint is that we made a reservation and requested outdoor seating but had to wait 45 minutes before being seated. With all going on with Covid, more people want to sit outside so it is understandable. It was just a bummer as we had. To make my friend wait and it was her birthday. Otherwise, all good and waiter was terrific.

This was our first time dining out since early March, and we had been craving oysters from Elliot's for a while. Felt like the staff was taking the situation seriously, tables were well spaced. We felt comfortable dining out. Food, cocktails, wine were all up to the usual Elliott's standard. Service was fantastic.

The food was amazing, the view was beautiful and the service was great! We both agreed we had the best calamari we’ve ever had. Also had an assortment of fresh oysters. Delicious! For entrees I had the scallops and my date had the rockfish. Portions were very satisfying and the flavor hits just as much. Last up was the lemon cheesecake with blueberry compote that hit the spot!

Excellent oysters and mussels, and the rest of the meal (halibut, fish and chips, crab cakes) were also good. The service was excellent, everyone wearing masks, masks enforced for patrons, QR code for full wine list, restroom doors with a foot pull attachment so you didn't have to touch the door with your hand, and the outdoor seating was perfect. This was a night out we desperately needed and we felt very comfortable in this setting.

I have been to Elliots several times. This is the first time that neither of us liked our food. I would think that if it is a limited menu that the food would be as good or better than before social distancing.

I ate here during July 2020. The restaurant used good table spacing and all servers were taking proper covid precautions. Our party was seated outside to enjoy the great views while dinning at the pier. The food was very good and service was attentive. We had the calamari appetizer, scallop entree and rockfish entree. The entrees were great and the calamari was pretty good but we'd probably order a different one next time as there were so many options that sounded great. Overall we had a great experience and would return.
