Best Seafood Restaurant in town. If you want fantastic Seafood or if I want to impress an out of town guest with a phenomenal Seafood dinner then Elliott's is the place for you. Absolutely the ONLY place to go for fresh and delicious Seafood. I've been going there for years and have never been disappointed. Also, Valet Parking right in front. 5*****

Great location with a view on the main tourist drag; however, food is overpriced and not particularly special. The chilled seafood platter (named, the "Celebration") on the "shareable" section of the menu sounds really attractive, but is overpriced seafood with average quality. The Dungeness crab lacked any real taste and I would have done better with some sticks of imitation crab legs. The snow crab legs were the only thing of any taste. The Manila clams on their appetizer menu was delicious and the broth it sat in was good. They definitely need to offer some bread so patrons can sop up that flavor. Service was average for a nicer place like this. We got there at the beginning of the evening before the dinner rush, but our waitress became very busy and our food took a long time to come out. It's unfortunate when you see other patrons receive the same dish as you that arrived after you did. Other than the less than attentive and slow service, the waitress was polite and responded to requests when asked/reminded. There are better options out there, but if you want to pay for convenience and a view, you can take the gamble.

Outstanding food and service!!!
This was our 2nd visit to Elliott's Oyster House and it did not disappoint. Outstanding food, drinks and service. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and personable. A great dining experience with our 2 (young) boys!! We had oysters, the house strawberry salad and wild mushroom strudel to start. All were delicious and not a morsel left. For our main course, we ordered the alder planked sockeye salmon (tasty, although I prefer the Cajun Pan Seared version we ordered last time) and steamed full Dungeness Crab. And who could say no to the Salted Caramel Sundae for dessert??? Four spoons please!!

Our server seemed to balk at the idea that dungeness crab could be frozen, though it is often served after having been frozen. After eating, I found that all the commercial crabbing areas had been closed for months, which explained the dry, overcooked, overly expensive crab. Service took a long time. Fish was poorly cooked for the price level. Oysters were good. Bread was good (but not complimentary?!). Overall, poor value, over-worked and inattentive service, great views, inflated check. Would not come back.

I was concerned when we first walked up that this place was/is extremely touristy due to it's location but was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and the terrific menu. The oysters were terrific and I was able to sample some types I hadn't had before. The waiter was a bit "stiff" but all and all it was a good experience.
Wonderful dining experience.
Elliott's can't be beat for delicious food, great service and scenic views. We went for lunch on a beautiful Seattle day, and our out of town guests were impressed with the overall experience. Thanks, Elliott's, for a great time!

A huge disappointment! A seafood/fish restaurant should know how to cook fish properly. 2 of us had the halibut and it was so over done. For the price of the meals don't even bother! Go somewhere else.

Can't go wrong with fish tacos - delicious! Ambiance is wonderful and is not hard to get into at lunch time.
Oysters! Have a fun to eat sea foods. thank you. happy
The table I booked was not prepared in time.
The restaurant itself was nice. However, The table I booked was not prepared in time. So we should wait about 20 minutes to be prepared. And one of our party was in a hurry and could not had lunch enough.
Prepare to wait
Even if you make a reservation you will be waiting 20-30 minutes. It is annoying if you are expecting to be seated when you requested but the food and cocktails are worth the wait. Oysters a la carte from various locations plus the only native oyster to the region. A foodie's delight with a price to match. dines alone with 2 cocktails, half dozen oysters and the alder lank salmon and was out $125 plus tip A Puget Sound sunset can make anything better. Request an outside table and be impressed. The bartender was quite knowledgeable about oysters and the chowder was perfect albeit small portions Very good food and views but not quite worth the price

The food and service was great. The appetizers were also great. It is a restaurant great restaurant that I would certainly recommend to anyone. We would certainly go back for dinner again.
Food and view make it worthwhile
The food was outstanding. The halibut was in season , locally caught, and prepared well. The location and view of the water cannot be beat. Service was mediocre at best, which made the experience somewhat disappointing. Wine by the glass was limited, beer and cocktail menu pretty good.
Great waterfront location with a wide selection of seafood. Oysters are the main draw; so much so it's in the name of the restaurant.

Really wonderful experience! Everyone was extremely friendly. Our server helped us pick the perfect thing for every course and talked to us and understood our likes and dislikes.
Great selection of oysters. Server was super helpful with choosing a variation of flavours. One slight negative, it was crazy loud in the restaurant. Would have loved to have sat outside but there were fewer servers out there and the wait time was too long.
The King Salmon Adler style was amazing!
The King Salmon Adler style was amazing!
This is the place for wonderfully fresh, outstanding raw oysters!! Great selection and wait staff that really knows the taste and source of every oyster variety. It doesn't get more "Seattle" than this - sitting outside by the water, enjoying a sunny afternoon with chilled wine and great oysters while watching freighters go by and the ferries come in and out. Mesmerizing!

The waitress was very kind, but she seemed too busy. We ordered a bottle of wine, but she brought a glass of wine to my colleague instead. The chowder was great, but the seafood platter was average. The oysters were tasty.
Fantastic Food, everything was very fresh.. Kudos!

This is a lovely restaurant, and the service is top notch. They have a very good selection of local oysters, and the wait staff is very knowledgable and helpful in directing you to the best choice for your special tastes. Indoor seating is nice, but if you can get outdoor seating during the spring/summer, the views are amazing. I'll definitely be going back soon!
Visited while in Seattle. Located on the pier by various tourist attractions, the restaurant is also a tourist destination. With that said, the water view is beautiful and the oysters are quite good. Service is good too. But, in the end it's a typical seafood restaurant; not hip or trendy.
Discovered Stellar bay oysters
First time to dine here. Arrived 30 minutes early and was seated by the window with a good view of the bay. Went for the oysters (Stellar bay topped others) and the lobster, of course!, Totally enjoyed the special evening with my 23-year old daughter, who traveled with me for a weekend get-away in Seattle.

We came for anniversary, first time highly recommended!! We had the tower, raw oysters and Rockefeller.. For appetizers !! The oysters were fine. The tower wasn't to our expectations.. The crab cake was fine.. The dip was hard to eat cause the bread was burnt so we asked for another one!! The service was fine.. The tower kinda ruined it for us.. We were planning to have dinner after but changed our minds!! It was disappointing that they also charged us for bread that was supposed to be replacement!!
