Elliott's Oyster House Ratings and Reviews

I'm not rating it for 5 stars not actually because it is bad, but because my purpose is dating and it is just not an appropriate place for dating. The food is not bad though the volume is low so I got hungry again after two hours. But if you would like to see whole bunch of kinds of oysters, this is the place for sure.

Bad start to the evening with the unfriendly waitress and her lack of knowledge regarding oysters, this was followed up by some below average Fried calamari and average crab cakes I will not be dining here on my next trip to Seattle

Visited on a Friday for lunch . Lunch menu is reasonably priced, although disappointed there was a 30 minute wait for outdoor seating at 3:30. Food was excellent (two of us had cioppino and one blackened rockfish and both were excellent). On slightly negative side, while pan fried oyster appetizer was tasty, there was a bit more breading than I remember from our last visit in 2014 when dish was phenomenal.

The service and ambiance is fabulous! I would give six stars. The oysters are great. My husband was disappointed in the Salmon entree salad as it seemed to be a hunk of salmon with mixed greens piled on top. Not very imaginative.
We arrived early for our reservation but ...
We arrived early for our reservation but were kept waiting until the allotted time. When we were brought to our table there was an entire row of empty tables - no reason to keep us waiting. We waited 10-15 minutes without anyone coming over to help us. Finally we snagged a waiter who told us that it was not his table but he took pity on us and took our order. He later turned the order over to the fellow that was supposed to be our waiter. The food was tasty but by the time it came, we had been sitting there 25 minutes and were not very interested. The food was decent but nothing memorable.

Loved Elliott's OH for a very long LONG time. They were number one in my book for not just the oysters and martinis but the steamed clams and linguini were to die for. It's been a good 6 years since my last visit there. The steamed clams and linguini got weird and not to my liking. But I do have to say ya can't mess up a good tray of oysters!

Was so excited to go but the service ruined a $500 tab. It was 4th of July and not many people there dining. However, we got seated in very back and our server wasn't very nice. Was trying to rush us out but we wouldn't allow it. Wanted to enjoy cocktails and fresh oysters before ordering dinner. When we wouldn't cave to her pushing us to order, she just quit coming by to check on us. Guess it hurt them more than us...my alcohol tab was cheaper since I couldn't order more wine! Overall it was a disappointing experience for such a wonderful place. Not sure I'll ever go back

Outstanding. We had been to Elliott's many years ago and the meal definitely left a good enough impression to return on our most recent visit to Seattle. Food was out of this world and our server, Jay, was excellent and very attentive. We enjoyed crab claws, shrimp and oysters as an appetizer, and very much enjoyed the halibut and scallop risotto. Our drinks never went unfilled, and we were surprised with a free creme brulee for my fiancé's birthday. Definitely recommend and will absolutely return.

The reception was good, and we were seated timely. When the food arrived, it was great. Unfortunately, in between we saw little of the waiter, and the dinner dragged on and on. Perhaps they were short handed, but the groups around us were given much more attentive service. It'll be a while before we return.

The service staff was conflicted in who serves what table and that it was appropriate to argue in front of other guests. Their food was tasteless and different from their menu description. Shuckers at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel is a lot better oyster restaurant.

I really enjoyed Elliott's Oyster house. we went for lunch had a reservation and instead sat at the bar for lunch. I would reccomend eating at a table as the bartender was exceptionally busy, but very friendly and knowledgeable. The seafood was perfect and we had oysters, not the best, but the Dungeoness appetizer was perfect.

Appy's, Dinner and Drinks were all delicious!
Our waiter was tentative, and very kind he brought dessert for birthday.
The hostess, should've been more honest when we first arrived, stated we had reservations and requested to sit on outside patio, hostess said could do in about 15 mins... so thought it would be fine to wait... almost 30mins later, asked when we would get our seating and then at that time was told patio is on a first come first serve basis, and looks like maybe another 15 mins or so, but could seat us inside at anytime, which I wasn't aware of when we first got there and then said we'll do just that and forget the patio. If she would've just stated this in the beginning, then it wouldn't have been a big deal but that was very misleading, and we waited around for over half an hour having a reservation when we really didn't need to.
Regardless, after finally getting seated, service was a bit slow, understand were a bit busy, but overall ended up enjoying our dining. View from our inside seat with a view was probably just as nice as sitting outside.

Was visiting Seattle with three picky teenage nephews. We got them to try the oysters and boy did they like them! The freshness and huge selection of local oysters was impressive!
The Coho alder plank smoked salmon was fabulous. Absolutely wonderfully cooked.
Lisa, our server was very attentive and gave us great advice which is always appreciated!
I will be back hopefully soon !
