Elliott's Oyster House
Perfect ExperienceOur server and your bus staff we're very friendly and efficient, overall i could feel a good vibe all away around and between the staff they all worked together. The timing of the food was perfect, the food was fresh and delicious along with our drinks, and surpisingly I didn't feel like the prices were too ridiculous, pleasantly surprised. I would definetly visit again and make reservations for a special occasion.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA winner every time.We went to Elliott's to celebrate Mother's Day. We had another fabulous meal. The BEST crab cakes. Excellent calamari. Beautiful oysters. Scallops, halibut cheeks and Steak Oscar were all superb. My Steak Oscar was incredibly rich and delicious. Our server was Cary. He was excellent and extremely professional and attentive. We can't wait to go back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful ExperienceWe were late due to the Mariners Game and the staff kept our table with the view. The service was superb, the food was the best ever. We truly will be back. My 13 year old grandson loved the delicous steamed Crab and fresh oysters.
I would and have already recommended this restaurant. We had one of the best Mother's day lunch that I can recall. I also aprreciated the free parking pass to our garage. It really gave us the opportunity to walk the waterfront and Pike Place market without worrying about a large parking tab.
You will see us again.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMbest salmon ever..our family went there for celebrating Mother's Day. It has a good view for dinning outdoor. The Alaska King Salmon is the best . we will definitely go back again.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMProfessionals all roundWe made on-iine reservations for a busy Saturday night, requesting a window table. Our table was ready within five minutes of our arrival, although the restaurant was packed with a line of drop-ins waiting to be seated. The hostess remembered to let us know our friends had called to say they would be a half hour late. The waiter was attentive, even though he had plenty to do, since every table was full! And the food was excellent, delivered while it was still hot, which sometimes doesn't happen on a busy night. All in all, a very pleasant experience.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great WaitpersonWe were lucky enough to have Simon for our waitperson. Perfect! Unobtrusive but so helpful and attentive to our needs.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDinnerOur server ,Fred was really knowledgable of the menu , friendly and very attentive to our likes and wants.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I had beenMy husband and I had been to Elliott's on a previous trip to Seattle.We returned this year with our children who also love fresh oysters. We made a reservation this time and were rewarded not only with a fabulous meal and great service, but a fantastic view.This will now be a family destination when we travel to Seattle.Food:All was very good;I have a special note about the crab cakes.I am originally from Maryland and have a certain expectation about crab cakes.I have lived in Oregon for 15 years and have found that most chefs completely over-season their cakes and add way too much breading - totally obscuring the experience of fresh crab.Not so at Elliott's. They were full of meat and I could appreciate the delicate flavor I enjoy in crab.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFinally...great seafood!We sat at a window table as requested and really enjoyed that boat view! The food was more expensive than the 2 star indicator, but worth it as it was scrumptious! We don't get good seafood where we live to the assortment and freshness were top notch! The really expensive salmon melted in our mouths. The crab cakes were just that.fresh crab...no filler detected!! The only downfall was our waiter forgot our oysters and I didn't want mine as dessert so I missed out on what they're really known for...bummer!! Otherwise service was good so we enjoyed it overall.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I thoroughly enjoyedMy wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Elliot's.

Save room for that Carrot Cake...top 5 ever!!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMJust had a lovely dinner atJust had a lovely dinner at Elliott's Oyster House this past Friday evening. Everything that we order was tasty and beautifully prepared. One of us had never had oysters before and our server was kind enough to suggest a couple to try. The service was especially amazing and we really enjoyed how attentive our server was. I'll definitely be back and I look forward to exploring the oyster menu a little more as well.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a fabulous early dinnerWe had a fabulous early dinner on the deck. View was wonderful, mussels were outstanding, perhaps the best I've eaten anywhere!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectionThe outdoor seating with a close up view of Puget Sound set the scene for an amazing dining experience.
The service was impeccable and the food top notch.
The oysters Rockafeller was fresh and tastey and the seafood linguini was to die for!
This restaurant will be the first stop I make next time I in Seattle.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat as always. have beengreat as always. have been going there for 20 years!4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThey treated us very niceThey treated us very nice for a anniversary dinner, waitress very good excellent food.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was recommended by aThis was recommended by a local upon our arrival. We were not disappointed . Food was great. Dress was casual and it was right on the waterfront area of Seattle .3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOysters! We love them, butOysters! We love them, but never really know which ones to order. We told our waitress just that, and she took it from there. Scallops were amazing, and the halibut special was transcendent. Also, surprisingly accessible wine list, in both label and price, so hooray for that. We'll definitely add this to our favorite list, especially when we have out-of-towners.
Only drawback: we made reservations, but still waited 30 minutes. I used to hostess, and know that some nights are just like that, but this group of hostesses seemed a little intimidated by the grumps and weren't very communicative with anyone at all. But, like I said-- been there.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMPricey but worth itThe oysters were great, considering me and my sister are not big fans of oyster but we actually liked it. The salmon was cooked & seasoned perfectly. I also love the ambiance and the view.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first trip toThis was our first trip to Elliotts in many years. When we walked in everything smelled very good and the restaurant is in a great location. The appetizers and/or salads were very good. The wine list was good and reasonably priced, though I do wish they had a couple of 1/2 bottles like at The Met. I ordered the grilled "fresh" halibut, but it was cold and watery in the middle. I don't see how this could have been fresh. It had to be frozen. My daughter really enjoyed her risotto & grilled prawns and my wife's cioppino was pretty good.
On the good sides, the service was very good and the atmosphere was very enjoyable. Perhaps we hit them on a bad day, but I'm with so many great seafood places in Seattle, I'm not sure if we will be back.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMElliotts is probably my favoriteElliotts is probably my favorite Seattle restaurant. The views are spectacular if you get a decent table ( I didn't my last time :( ). The food is exceptional, especially the oysters. I would go for the oysters alone, but the rest of the food is outstanding as well. Last time they had fresh halibut just off the boat. My entire party ordered it and it was delicious.
We all had a terrific experience at Elliotts, I wholeheartedly recommend it.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent dinner and eveningHad an excellent king salmon dinner as suggested by our waitress. Prepared perfectly and just the right amount. Was able to walk back to our hotel without feeling stuffed, but content. Our daughter had the prawns risotto which was also excellent. We ate out side but got a little cool tword the end of the meal. Very nice view and location.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and Great serviceWe have been here several times and always walk away fulfilled knowing that we had a great dinner. This time we had two of thier specials: halibut and rockshrimp pasta. Both of them were absolutely delicious and the portions were very hearty...not the pay out your but for a thimble type place. We will be back for sure.
Oh yes, their oysters are delectable as is their fried truffle ganache dessert. yummy!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMElliots is a class act atElliots is a class act at a reasonable price.

Great service as usual.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful oysters!Excellent quality seafood and delightful selection of fresh oysters3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy!Food never disappoints. Wait staff is friendly, timely and very intuitive. Had a little issue with the dinner on us offer that was going on, (previous server didn't explain how the program works to me) but the server figured it out, gave great customer service and left a satisfied and a happy customer.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent seafood with a great viewElliott's is a primo seafood spot right on the waterfront with excellent views of Elliott Bay, the skyline, ferry traffic and West Seattle. The food is always top class, and the Oysters are served with Knowledge. Seafood is the focus, but there are appetizers like the warm, wild mushroom strudel that are wonderful as well. Strong wine list. Weak point might be desserts (which are really good, anyway), but you'll be stuffed to the gills by dessert so it probably doesn't matter. Servers are accommodating, patient and friendly. Use the curbside valet parking - worth it. If you're in Seattle, Elliott's should be on your "do not miss" list.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic oyster selection,Fantastic oyster selection, over 30 varieties. Our waiter very helpful in picking out the very best ones - not just a matter of price - and then discussing our findings as one would do with great wines. Continued with the excellent "Ultimate" seafood plate to share.3/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter was awesome superOur waiter was awesome super nice and checked up on us constantly which was great.

The food was fantastic. We started with the oyster soup and the spicy crab corn chowder soup. There was a wonderful selection of local oysters so of course we had to select several to try. Yum! Next we had a large platful of the tequila lime mussels. They were cooked to perfection. Last was a full dungenous crab, steamed. We could not pass up on dessert too. We had the cheese cake. Another yum! Can't wait to return to Elliots in warm weather too. To sit on their deck by the water.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was amazing! The onlyFood was amazing! The only complaint that we had was the speed of service. It may be the culture I the place, but we weren't prepared for it. Everything else was perfect.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
