Elliott's Oyster House Ratings and Reviews

The only down side: extremely slow service. It appeared that they could use a few more servers. However, it's also understandable that wages are so outrageous high in Seattle. I don't want to pay double or triple what I paid to get my food 10 minutes sooner. Thank you all you socialists in WA!!! Anyway, the best oysters ever!!! Get Elliot's bay oysters!!!

As always the experience was very good. The location on the waterfront is wonderful and even with the construction for the new tunnel, parking was easy. The crab cakes and salmon were excellent while the crab and shrimp melt and cracked crab were very good. We plan on returning within the month.

We had a delightful lunch at Elliot's, we enjoyed some fresh Kumamoto oysters an amazing salmon entree & some delicious crab legs . Everything was delicious , the service was very nice & we look forward to going back to Elliot's in the very near future ....

The service was really quite good.
The restaurant was cold. It was 39F outside. The A/C was on. We asked for the A/C to be turned down. It was. Temporarily.
The salmon was too rare and a few pin-bones had not been removed. It was also bland. At best.
The asparagus was undercooked.
The pomegranate sauce might as well have been nonexistent. And the potatoes (were they potatoes?) were awful.
The risotto was lumpy and tasteless.
The scallops were mediocre.
The Apple Crisp was not crispy. More like oatmeal. Just awful.
The creme brûlée was very well done, thank God!
Altogether over-rated, over-priced, and a meal and visit to NEVER be repeated.
Sorry, but this was a disaster.

Service was slow with long periods between being checked on by waitress. My fiance ordered the lobster and was very dissatisfied. The lobster was rubbery and over cooked and was sent back twice before having to substitute another entree. Even though the manager was responsive, he did not compensate us on the bill. We spent nearly two and a half hours waiting to receive an acceptable entree. That said the scallop dish that replaces the lobster was excellent. But overall it was not an enjoyable dinning experience.

Elliott's is always a special treat. However, on this occasion, it missed the mark. We weren't brought all of our oysters to begin with. The server noted it when she brought them. It took approximately 15 minutes and 1 additional reminder to receive the extra oysters. To her credit, she added a few extra for us after that reminder. After that, we did receive our entrees, and we were as happy as a clam (pun clearly intended).

My daughter and I decided to have a special night out for New Year's Eve and dine at a nice restaurant. We went to Elliott's Oyster House and it exceeded our expectations. The staff was friendly and welcoming, the food was delicious and of substantial portions, and our waiter, Mike, was very pleasant and courteous. We had a wonderful evening and I would like to thank Elliott's Oyster House for playing such a huge part in that!

Our reservation was on New year's eve, we had very good dinner that night. Next evening we were walking the piers and decided to go back, we had oyster rockefeller for second time so you can say we liked it. For dinner we split a grilled seafood salad that was excellent, and plenty for splitting. The wine was incredible Malbec Tomero. I believe we will revisit next time in Seattle!

We brought out of state guests for dinner prior to the NYE celebration on Argosy Cruises.
A nice wine selection as well as local beers (including a couple of IPAs).
The seafood selection was excellent. Our guests enjoyed a variety of oysters for the appetizer portion. Then on to great selections for dinner.
It's not an inexpensive dinner but for special occasions it's perfect.
Lots of parking across the street.
I appreciated the phone call on the day of the dinner to confirm, it's a good business practice.

My friend and I had dinner at Elliott's for New Year's Eve. It's one of my favorite restaurants and I knew they wouldn't disappoint. Great fresh oysters for a starter and then we had the king crab entrée. A bit pricey and I don't know if it was really worth it at $72. But it was a special occasion and therefore, we both decided to spring for it. It was totally delicious and we weren't sorry. Great friendly service too. Thanks for a great meal, Elliott's!

Our waitress, Dohui, was fantastic. They knew we needed to leave at a specific time and delivered a perfect evening that didn't feel rushed in spite of our time constraint. The oysters were fantastic and Dohui had great recommendations for us based on our picks for dinner. Well done! We'll be back!!

My husband loved his ciapinno. Said it was the best he had ever eaten. I had fish and chips, nothing special there. The cole slaw had a horseradish dressing which I really didn't like. The fries were cold and the frozen type, I wouldn't order this again.
It's family place, lots of kids and very busy waiters running around.
It's good for every day eating. The staff was nice.

We had reservations and still has to wait 20 minutes for our table. The service was really slow. Our waitress was very sweet and helpful and moving with urgency but she seemed to have several tables spread all over the restaurant. We had to wait about 30 minutes between EACH Step of our meal. And the food was just ok... nothing to write home about. It was also extremely noisy and congested.

At $75 to $100 per head, charging for mediocre French bread is inappropriate. Additionally, using barely warm, non- clarified butter with hot dungeoness crab is just plain lazy. The ambiance is still great. But, this restaurant is not what it used to be.

We had a wonderful assortment of oysters to start. So fun to be able to mix and match! Everything we had was great, with exception of the chowders. But the sea bass special, fish & chips, and chiopino were fantastic!

Our favorite place for oysters. They always have a great selection to choose from. The servers are well versed on what's good and can make a recommendation to suit your tastes. We love smaller, briny oysters, I requested a dozen with those characteristics. I got to enjoy 4 different types that were absolutely delicious. Nice ambiance, excellent service.

We reserves for a holiday meal with family from the US and Europe. They sat us at a table next to the door even though there were plenty of nice tables inside the restaurant. It was very cold, uncomfortable and noisy. When I mentioned it was cold, they didn't seem to care. We ate quickly and left. The food was mediocre. It was a huge disappointment.
