Elliott's Oyster House Ratings and Reviews
Our salmon had raw spots in it which our waiter tried to convince us was how 'most people like it'...and he said it would be an additional 20 minutes to get it cooked through. So...we ate around the raw parts. As a big salmon lover, I frequently order salmon and have never ever had it served to me like this. We paid over 30 dollars for a piece of salmon and it would seem to me that the restaurant would want to make sure our fish was cooked to our liking. I will never go back here again.
I've heard a lot about Elliot'ts and I love Oysters on the half shell, which is the main reason we picked Elliott's. Unfortunately, that was really the only great food I had. Their raw oysters are fantastic. Others said the steak salad was very good and it looked delicious. The seafood salad on the other hand, had overcooked product on it and if you could find the crab (which Elliott's is famous for) good luck. The appetizer I had was the Oysters Rockefeller - and I'm so sorry to say it was possibly the worst Rockefeller I've ever had. The oysters were HUGE and they had some kind of liquid cheese sauce (like 7-11 Nachos) on top? what? Our waiter was good but he was of course super slammed due to the fact it was Mother's Day :) over all it was OK - I'd say lunch or happy hour for cocktails and raw oysters -- good deal.
Being from the Midwest and relative seafood novices, our experience there was rather disappointing. I'm sure it is great if we were more seasoned. The calamari was slightly above average, a tad tough, and the dipping sauce was rather bland. I had the Alaskan sockeye salmon and asked for it medium. 70% of it was perfectly cooked, but because of the variance in thickness I felt more turned out medium rare. My wife had the full dungeness crab. It was her first time having that and had issues getting good chunks of meat out of it. Now this might be how it always is, but something that should be noted by the server. To reiterate, if you are a seasoned seafood expert then you might have a different experience, but if you are "newer" to seafood then you might be very disappointing dropping $160 for dinner.
All the tables surrounding us received complimentary bread before there meal and then towels after there meal, we weren't even offered.
Also our server was horrible at refilling our drinks, they were empty pretty much the whole time.
I only conttinue to go back for the amazing food, and bar selection.
First time here.WOW! Perfect everything. Service superb(Jax).
I had Cioppino,my wife Cajun Alaskan king salmon. Perfect in every way. Our server,Jax, as knowledgeable as they get. She knew all 30 types of oysters they serve. Will certainly return next time in Seattle.
Happy hour menu was great, they have $1.5/ oysters and it tastes pretty good. When our server was taking our order, she sighed/ was rude because my friend wasn't very good at English. Then we asked her to split our table in two bills, she was kinda mad and said we don't do this at all. We were upset because of the server's attitude. Other than this server, food was tasty, view was great, price was reasonable!
Hubby ordered cioppino. Crab in it had funny flavor like about to go bad and meat was mushy-ish, generally a sign of not fresh. Waitress took crab piece out of stew for chef to check for ???. Came back and said it was the herbs in marinara sauce which made the crab smell funny!! Maybe restaurant should not use this herb(s) as people would want a crab to smell & taste fresh!!!! Poor way to handle situation!! Furthermore, we have all had cioppino many times in the past elsewhere and have not experienced funny tasting & smelling crab. It was insulting the way this was handled. Hubby ended up ordering something else. We have been to Elliott's multiple times in the past and have always recommended it to other travelers going to Seattle. Hesitant to recommend now,
Everything was really amazing. The food was great, the servers and runners were friendly. The only thing was that even though it was still a Sunday, it was really busy and the server was kinda slow on waiting on us. But like I said it was because they were busy so I understand. But other than that everything was wonderful!
Upon arriving, the staff were quick to accommodate our reservation. The food was delectable, the service was refreshing, and the ambiance was great. Our server was immensely helpful in food selections and assisted my wife with platter choices and was very outgoing. We will definitely be making future visits to this establishment.
We were traveling cross country and at our stop in Seattle I checked TripAdvisor for a good restaurant and Elliotts had great reviews so I booked our anniversary dinner through OpenTable. In the note section to the restaurant, I indicated that it was our anniversary. I also ordered flowers from the on line partner. When we arrived the hostess said happy anniversary, then we were taken to our table where the server also greeted us with happy anniversary. We split an order of oysters Rockefeller and it was to die for. At the end of the meal the server dropped off 2 spoons and left, not long she returned with creme Brule and again wished us a happy anniversary. Dessert was on the house.
Wow, what a fantastic meal we had. By sitting at the bar for a pre dinner drink, we got acquainted with our bartender who was able to steer us in a great direction as to what to order! We loved the calamari appetizer, alder plank salmon was perfection and the seared sea scallops were generous and moist inside/crisp sear on outside. The risotto was delicious!! Just sorry we were too full for dessert
