A word from Cutters Crabhouse
One of Seattle’s proudest traditions is the Pike Place Market, right next door. The market thrives by providing the highest quality seasonal products indigenous to the Pacific Northwest. This allows Cutters--totally remodeled in April 2012--to be directly influenced by the unique nature of the market. Because of Cutters' ongoing commitment to incorporate only the finest seasonal Northwest ingredients in all menu offerings, we can truly say: “If it’s there, it’s here."

    Cutters is a wonderful option for entertaining out of town guests and for celebrating special events. The atmosphere is lively and the location is central to the tourist core of Seattle, being adjacent to Pike's Place market. The close-up view of the city and waterfront with the mountains in the distant is pretty special.

    We went to Cutters on a Tuesday night for dinner. The restaurant was not packed by any means yet somehow our waiter still had s very difficult time coming to our table. Even after eating he left our empty plates for over 20 mins before offering dessert. I was not impressed and have had better experiences before.

    We had a very nice evening here and the view is amazing. We ordered the King crab legs, which were excellent. If they put you in the corner booth (extremely tight on one side - I'm 5'8" and 130 lbs.) just ask kindly to be moved, they will do it with a smile.

    We're from out of town and Cutters was recommended to us by a good friend who's local. He wasn't wrong. We set up our reservation on line, which was convenient and easy. The staff seated us right away and the front house staff was prompt and courteous, with great senses of humor. I had the Alaskan Halibut and my wife had the Baked Crab. The fish was flaky and moist, with good flavor. The ginger in the recipe was prominent. Overall quite good. According to my wife, the crab was also excellent.

    Celebrated our tenth anniversary and everyone from the hostess to the bus-boy helped us celebrate with good wishes. Our meals were perfect as was our wine selection. One thing to keep in mind for visitors to Seattle is that Cutters offers a Courtesy Van to pick up and deliver guests at their hotel. This feature is greatly appreciated by us retired folks.

    Comical
    Dined on 10/2/2014
    The service staff where comically arrogant. The restaurant was approximately 25% occupied and despite being on-time for our reservation, we were left to stand in the lobby for 10+ min. After recongnizing us the greeter answer calls, took the names of others arriving, strolled away, anything but seat us. No exploitation was provided. Once we were being seated and saw how deserted the restaurant was, we had to laugh. The server at the table had the same “I'm above this all" attitude. I found myself apologizing to my out of town guests. The behavior of the employees ruined what was otherwise a good meal and view. I'm not planning to come back anytime soon and supect only the owner will care.

    Good things: Sunset view from a window table, nice atmosphere, sushi. Bad things: $40 for King salmon drenched in balsamic vinegar? The chef's special was not good. The entire plate was black from the vinegar. Being the adventurous diner that I am, I decided to try it instead of sending it back. Not a good idea. The underlying ingredients were a good idea but it was ruined before it got to me. This place is expensive and definitely not worth the money with other nearby places offering better cuisine for less money.

    My wife and I enjoyed our shared birthday brunch at Cutters Crabhouse overlooking Elliott Bay just north of Seattle's famous Pike Place Market. Parking is available in a garage under the restaurant, and Cutters will validate your parking ticket for a 50% discount on your parking. We loved the calamari for an appetizer (plenty for two to split) and each ordered an entree of fish tacos. All were very tasty, and beautifully presented. Our service was excellent. Since we both have birthdays this week, our server invited us to each pick out a complimentary dessert. All in all, it was a gorgeous day, a fantastic view of the bay, and a delicious brunch. We will return to Cutters soon!

    Cutter's was the best Seattle dining experience we had over the past week. The service was friendly and thorough without being bothersome. For a busy night it was extraordinary not to have had some hiccup. The steamer clams were excellent and the halibut amazing. The restaurant is spacious with wide spacing between tables allowing for normal conversation and not being bothered by conversations at adjacent tables. We will definitely be returning on our next adventure in Seattle.

    The Alaskan King Crab was among the best I've had; cooked perfectly, easy to get out of the shells and very sweet. The accompanying vegetables likewise were very nicely done. The grilled romaine was superb. We had made a reservation and were seated at a table by the window with a great view. Altogether a very enjoyable dining experience.

The offerings vast and the Quality was terrific. Would return in a heartbeat! Seattle in the Fall with a high of 80º & no wind made it a perfect spot to be! We were never hurried nor felt rushed.

    We took my sister in law and cousin to Cutters during their visit. They LOVED IT! My sister in law loved their oysters, she said they were better than Elliot's Oyster House down on Pier 56. The crab dip appetizer is delicious! The highlight as always is their Smoked Salmon Chowder! Creamy, bits of crunchy salmon skin, big chunks of salmon!!! My husband got the crab-stuffed prawns and loved them! Also said that the green beans were cooked perfectly, good amount of seasoning but keeping the integrity of the vegetable and crunchy. Our cousin got the lobster gnocchi bake and loved it. I split the crab fettuccine. It was amazing! Everything is delicious here and the staff was very accommodating and helpful! Can't wait to come back!

    Had friends come to town and wanted to take them some place with a view and local food options. The view was great, but the updated menu is very limited. Even more limiting was the service. Our table was in the midst of what must have been a table of toddlers based on the mine field which was the carpet surrounding our table. The hostess pretended not to notice - something it appears she has to do a lot. Our waiter was nice enough, but couldn't seem to find his way back to our table very often even though we were there early and the place was fairly empty. The main dishes were poorly done - over sauced in a way that completely overwhelmed what was on the plate. All in all a bit sad for a place that once was a safe option for friends.
