Elliott's Oyster House Ratings and Reviews

We had last minute reservations later in the evening and Elliott's made it a seamless process. The ambiance was perfect, our table which had a waterfront view was stunning and the service was pleasant. In summary, it was a perfect evening. It was our first visit to Seattle as well as to Elliott's and we will definitely be back again. Already looking at December 2016 travel dates. It was simply lovely!

We went to Elliotts the other night based on reviews I had read. Apparently I am in the minority, but this was the worst meal I've ever had the service was OK and then he was fine but the seafood was horrible the shrimp cocktail was like cardboard. I sent it back I ordered the crab cocktail. It was $26 and so salty I could hardly eat it. I ended up rinsing to crab in my water glass because I didn't feel I could send another dish back. Then I got to the crabcakes and they were mushy, lacked flavor, and extremely disappointing. I would not recommend this restaurant and I would never go back again.

The oysters at Elliott's are always first rate, the staff is knowledgeable in recommending varieties. One of my regular stops every time I am in Seattle. And the oyster Happy Hour is a great oyster deal if you can fit into that time frame.

I made this reservation to celebrate my sister's birthday. Requested a window seating so she could enjoy the view as they live in Boise - we did enjoy a booth by the window. We arrv d 20 minutes before our reservation time and we're seat d 20 minutes after our reserved time. Waiter was non-memorable (Matt). I had to check my ticket to see who waited on our table - totally non- descript. What was most disappointing was no recognition of my sister's birthday celebration. Will not be picking Elliott's for a special occasion celebration again. BTW, the fish and chips were terrible, there was a chunk of fish that was hard and non chewable. The calamari was also disappointing, looked and tasted like popcorn shrimp. My two star rating has a lot to do with the boring, uncaring and totally unmemorable waiter.

Great view of ferries docking, ships embarking was a nice backdrop to the excellent service and tasty lunch. My only complaint ... the pretentiousness and expense of the oysters. We had a few, but they were hardly worth the fuss or expense. We'll return to Elliott's, but probably grab some 2-buck shooters down the street.
I was visiting a friend in Seattle so we ...
I was visiting a friend in Seattle so we decided to go big and make reservations and what we thought was the "best seafood restaurant in Seattle". Unfortunately, I have nothing good to say about the experience. Drinks sucked - not well mixed and tasted cheap. The fried oysters were fine - tasted like any bars fried food. The scallops were chewy and seemed old. And the crab - normally one of my all-time favorite meals - we went for the $60 spicy crab - and it just sucked. I was actually sad. It was cold, lacked flavor, and I don't know how the crab tastes better in the southwest at a Red Lobster in comparison to a sea side famous Seattle restaurant but that is just wrong. I won't be going back.

Wonderful dinner, had many first's that night from my daughter and her girlfriends trying oysters, king salmon and halibut. -all were delicious and our server was so helpful in getting them to try foods they had never had before.

Our server was slow, it took quite a long time to get our drinks and to get our order. We never got bread and butter. They sat us at a booth right where the vent was which was very cold. I asked our server if we can moved table but instead she said they can turn down the fan. They never turn down the fan.
Food was fine but overall service was not impressive.
We visited this restaurant with friends ...
We visited this restaurant with friends visiting from out of state and ordered the potato bread, chopping, seafood yakisoba, Kumamoto oysters, salmon sandwich, and pear and walnut salad. Everything was delicious and we'd definitely recommend all to try this place. It also has breathtaking scenery of the water and ferries.

Oysters are a bit pricey, I'd expect to pay that price in LA - not Seattle. Granted Elliott's is in a touristy area, they could still create a more inclusive oyster eating atmosphere by pricing their signature product better.

We were expecting high quality seafood and were incredibly dissapointed.
When trying out a new restaurant I start with happy hour to get an idea of the chefs palate
However the oyster chowder was too spicy , crab cakes soggy, and lack of attention from the wait staff made us want to leave.

Overall my experience was an 8 out of 10. 1 point lost for the wait time, even with a reservation & another point lost for slightly overcooked potatoes. The service was really spectacular though, and our salmon was some of the best we've had, and cooked to perfection. Nice wine list as well. Decent price point for the quality.
Although the crab legs were very good, t ...
Although the crab legs were very good, there was some question about the value for the price. The special chowder was outstanding, and a request for a slight variation on a menu item was happily agreed to by the chef - and turned out very good
The waterfront view was amazing, and the service was very good. We will return - but won't likely order the crab legs again

The food was good, not great. The risotto was very tasty. The lobster was tasty but over priced. Overall very expensive for what you get. Atmosphere was so so. We could not see out very well. Our waitress was the best part of the eve. The creme brulee was delicious. Our waitress brought it for the birthday girl on her own. Very nice of her.
