Elliott's Oyster House Ratings and Reviews

Made late night dinner reservations for Valentine's Day. Showed up 10 min before my reservations and was told there would be a 40 min additional wait past the reservation. No apologies given. Will never go here again.

Valintine's Day disaster! Reservation made a month in advance for 7:30pm dinner with a window seat request. Arrive at 7:25pm and told it's busy and will likely be a 30 minute wait. "Feel free to wait in the bar (standing room only) and we'll call you", "but what about my reservation?" "Sorry sir, it's just Valentine's Day you know". Our wait is 50 minutes. Seated at small booth not near a window. King Salmon was simply overcooked. I got mad enough that everything ended up being free (to their credit). I will not return nor recommend. Takes the Metroplitan Grill out of play for me as well (sister restaurant).

Always a fan of Elliotts, was a little disappointed in portion size of half sandwich & salad lunch option, and I've gotten it a few times before and it's always been perfect. But overall this is one of my favorite neighborhood places I often take visiting family/friends to and suggest it to business partners.

The bartender was very attentive. The staff handled the transition of our drinks and orders to our table smoothly. The waiter was a little overworked but took good care of us. And the quality of all of the food and drink was very good. Everything met our expectations.

Elliott's didn't come close to meeting our expectations. $18 for two tiny crab cakes? The waiter recommended the sole for my husband and it was terrible- soggy and had barely any sauce. Even further, the server never asked if everything was okay or if the food was good. Worst $100 meal I've ever had.

We made reservations at this restaurant to celebrate my birthday. The ciopino was unbelievably delicious, with generous portions of Dungenous crab claws! Every meal at the table was well-prepared and the waitress fun and attentive.

Food only rates a good for one reason. Looking online it said they had a highly rated Shrimp Louie, but when we tried to order it it was not even on the menu. The cocktail waitress thought they might have most of the ingredients, but not all. When I asked the waiter if they had the ingredients they did not even know what a Shrimp Louie was. Sad for a seafood restaurant. Needless to say had to find another shrimp dish. The food we ended up with was tasty though, except the shrimp were overdone, plus a little to expensive for what you got. Nice atmosphere on the water!

One of my favorite dining spots in Seattle. Some say it's "touristy" but I dont' care. The food is great. Have an oyster flight and the alder planked salmon. It never disappoints. A great wine selection and friendly efficient service.

The food was good, the service was great, but the atmosphere was below par. We were seated in a room off to the side where there was only a very LOUD group (probably 25) discussing business - long winded guest speaker and all and our family of 5. The server was very apologetic that we had to be in there with them. She said they didn't have enough people for the private room. I'm assuming we were their "punishment" since I had 3 small children with me. As I said, the food was good, very overpriced, but still good.

We love this place but every time we visit there seems to be a minor problem but they're adding up. You cant beat the location, oysters, and ambience. Service is questionable as we had a reservation for 7:15, were seated @ 7:30. Order taken at 8. Finished our meal at 10. We couldn't wait to leave so we asked for check when we ordered dessert.

We had the Oysters Rockefeller, Spicy Crab and Corn Chowder, Seared Scallops and Braised Beef, and Grilled Prawns Risotto. Risotto did surpass my expectations. Chowder was amazing although it was a small cup for $7. Oysters Rockefeller were also very good. Seared Scallops would have rated them higher but only got 3 for the price of $39. A bit much for so little. Tasty food. Cocktail menu left much to be desired. Overall a 3.5 star dinner.

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!!!

We are locals and this is a great place for seafood whether you are a local or visiting Seattle. There is consistently great local selections of local catches, great service, nice ambience and view.

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.
