Elliott's Oyster House Ratings and Reviews
Was a great experience until we got the ...
Was a great experience until we got the bill. While ordering, asked the waiter if I could get a side of sauteed shrimp for my 6 year old daughter, or something comparable to that. He said, sure, and that it is a little skewer of shrimp and asked if she would be ok with that. When we got the bill, it was $26 for the shrimp. It wasn't even a whole dinner, it was just about 6 shrimp. You can get a pound of shrimp at Pike's Place Market for $24. I thought that was very poor service by the waiter not to tell us the price especially since he knew it was for a 6 year old.

Our waiter was wonderful. We both had, what for us New Yorkers, were local, expensive treats: Dungeness Crab and King Salmon. They were both wonderful. However, since one of us got their's cold, and we had to wait about 20 minutes, they comp'd us dessert. The restaurant is on the water, is pretty and festive. If it's a tourist joint, it's a classy one.

I took my family, including my out of town relatives, to enjoy the best of Seattle seafood. We had an eager waiter who did a good job, but didn't go beyond that level. Our apatizers were crab cakes and calamari, and were good. Only 2 cakes. When dinner finally arrived, the plank salmon that 2 of us ordered was raw in the thick part of the cut and overlooked in the thin part. Waiter sent chef apology and comped one of the dinners, but for the amount we spent, you would expect perfection. I rate Elliot's average at best.

The whole experience was great, sitting outside on the pier . We had two dozen oysters of 12 different kinds that server picked. Eight we really liked with a couple glasses of wine. My wife had the sea bass which may had been slightly over cooked, but she still thought it good. I had the grilled halibut which excellent. Service was great. We spend two hours at dinner in total and would come back again. We live in the Dallas area.

It was very hot that day, but we sat outside under an umbrella and there was a slight breeze off the water and it was wonderful. Don't know how anyone could stand to be inside in the dark and cold air conditioning on a day like that. We were celebrating my husbands birthday and then attending the Seahawk game. Our waiter was great and we each had a delicious meal in a beautiful setting. I have a shellfish allergy and your wait staff always seems to pay close attention to that so I feel safe. What more could you ask for?

Great service, good recommendation regarding wine. Wait staff excellent. Food very good. We felt well taken care of. The only negative was the tinny background music (we were seated outside) that ground on throughout the whole meal. One couldn't really hear it but it added a low level stress that was mildly unpleasant. Overall, we'd go back but they should address this issue.

According to Yelp, this place was highly rated and rightfully so. I had the Alaskan Salmon (the cheapest one on the menu) in the Cajun and it was easily the best Salmon I've ever had. Also, you can't get a better view than this, right on the Seattle waterfront. Would recommend as a must-see place.

It was a very busy Saturday night we requested a table for our party of six with a view and got put in the complete back room in the dark with air-conditioning freezing is out! The food was average mine was burnt and I had to send it back and my new food was okay...

Took a dear out of town guest for dinner to introduce her to our PNW seafood. First, the restaurant and surrounding area were packed with tourists and it was all quite hectic. Our evening was HORRIBLE ! Started with warm beer - was told by the server that it is the new "trend" HUH????? Ordered the appetizer tower - served room temp at best. Calamari were absolutely tasteless, cold, and left a greasy coating in the mouth. Dinner arrived much later and was stone cold. Ciopino was watery and cold. Risotto was so salty it was inedible. The "hot" whole dungeness crab was cold and tasted days old and reheated. Drawn butter was solid and mashed potatoes were like wallpaper paste and stone cold. Absolutely the worst meal in total that we have had in years. The only saving grace was after sending back all of the entrees, the manager did comp our entire ticket. We were fortunate we didn't get sick !!!!

Had the dungeoness crab hot and cold. We ordered the oyster stew which was ok . We decided on a cold appetizer dinner which was delicious. The extra money for the potato bread was not worth it since the bread was chewy not crispy.

Made our reservations on OpenTable and when we arrived there were people waiting but we were seated right away. The restaurant is big so it did not seem overcrowded, if it's a nice day request outdoor seating. Service was good, very attentive, food came out in reasonable time and the waitress gave good descriptions of the different types of oysters and salmon. The entrees were very good, my wife had the king crab legs, my daughter the king salmon, my other daughter the scallops and I had the halibut, we all enjoyed what we had. The entrees do not include soup or salad. It is pricey, expect to pay $50-60 per person.

I had family in town on vacation and they wanted (naturally) to go for a "nice" seafood dinner. It was awesome. Two of us had a selection of oysters, I had Oysters Rockefeller, there was calamari, risotto and king crab legs. Cannot say enough good things about this place - it was packed on a Tuesday night.

We lucked out: the day we had lunch there it was 70, sunny, and we were able to dine outside with a view of the harbor the Bainbridge Island. Started with a spinach salad with smoked salmon that was very big and enough for two. Lunch was Dungeness crab--she had it steamed with drawn butter, I had it with a spicy sauce that tasted of Thai chili sauce and pineapple juice (different but I liked it). Dessert was homemade ice cream (chocolate with chocolate chips and pecans) and sorbet (blackberry and currant, nit too sweet), both were very good. The server was very accommodating and didn't rush us at all (we were there for over two hours--the food didn't come rapidly and we were in no hurry, plus it takes a while to dismantle crab and savor it).

Service was excellent. Everything we ordered was wonderful from the full Dungeness crab to the peach cobbler. If you like oysters you'll love this place with over 50 varieties. All fresh and tasty. The King Salmon on Alder plank is a must Cooked to perfection. You won't be disappointed but make reservations far in advance. Outside by the water at sunset is best tables.

Elliott's, as always , was wonderful. The food was outstanding and the service was great. Mike was our waiter and he went out of his way to make our dinner a very special occasion. We try to get to Elliot's as much as possible We are so happy that they are open again.

Elliott specializes in fresh seasonal seafood. They have a wonderful selection of raw oysters and if you are there for Happy Hour the oysters are only $1.50 instead of $2-$3 each. The large menu offers a large variety of fresh fish and shellfish to satisfy everyone's palate. Everyone was pleased with their dinners of prawns, raw and fried oysters, cropping, king salmon, and halibut. Quality and freshness of their seafood prepared to your specific taste was key to this restaurant. We sat on the patio for an early dinner which was quieter than inside seating. Our waiter was very helpful to offer suggestions which was very nice.
