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."

    We have been to Cutters Crabhouse a few times over the past couple of years, and always the service was impeccable and the food great! This time was very disappointing; we had to wait about an hour for our meal, after telling the waitress we were interested in dessert we eventually had to go to the desk and get our own menus, and then of the 4 Creme Brulees we ordered 3 of them were burnt (and you could taste it).

    The food was good but overpriced. $200 for four people, only one drink each and no dessert seemed like a lot of money. I think for that amount, a side salad should be served alongside the main meal.

    I used to love Cutters but this past Thursday the food was not what I expected, and the prices were very high! The halibut was $43 and was so bland, the veggies had no seasoning and the mashed potatoes were way over mixed and it was like a mass of starch. The menu selections were not that great either. I liked Cutters before they remodeled. I will not be going back. Too bad, because it has an awesome view.

    Not cheap but the food was tasty. Crab was good but was maybe a tad over cooked. Perhaps because the legs where sliced in half lengthwise to make it easy to eat. I'd rather work for it and have it be more moist. Flavorful and still enjoyable.

    Our reservation was at 830, but he table we were waiting on was taking a long time. The lovely hostess communicated with us frequently while we sat in the bar waiting for our table. We eventually ended up just staying at the bar because of the delay. Didn't mind at all. The bartender that night was hilarious and attentive. Great experience overall Also, scallops were amazing, portabella burger was delicious and the mojitos exceeded their 9.28 rating from the bartender.

    I was a visitor in Seattle and Cutter's was recommended by our hotel upon check-in. We had sushi as an appetizer and it was delicious. I felt the dinner choices were somewhat limited but decided on their only salmon dish. The menu stated it would have a coconut sauce. I am not a huge fan of coconut but the waited insisted it was a very mild hint of coconut so I ordered and was disappointed. I should have had them hold the sauce. My son's meal was delicious. One more thing...the coffee seemed very weak which surprised me as I expected to have outstanding coffee everywhere in Seattle.

    We came to cutters to celebrate the visit of my Mom coming from France. We were very well seated in a corner to have a panoramic view. First experience of a brunch for our visitor: the food was fresh, tasty, original, very well presented and with generous portions. The service was fast, watchful and the kid menus were a very good deal including a dish, a juice and a Sunday ! My husband also came with a big party of colleges and had a similar great experience. A very good location if you want to explore downtown Seattle !

    Not only was the food excellent, the water view amazing, the proximity to the Pike Place Marker convenient; the service was the best in town. Not only was the waitstaff attentive to our needs and helpful with recommendations, but the restaurant's own shuttle returned us to our hotels after dinner at no charge. The next time I am in Seattle I will return to Cutters.

    We reserved through Open Table for Easter brunch for a group of 4. I requested a window table and actually got it! The waiter was busy but attentive and very nice. My husband had the "best French toast" he'd ever eaten. My daughter enjoyed her eggs benedict. My smoked salmon soup portion was very small and very rich. I never did ask what the crunchy things in the soup were! The wedge salad was not as good as I've had. Maybe too little bacon or no blue cheese chunks? Not sure. I didn't even bother to finish it. We were blessed with a bright overcast day so the view was great! We went for a stroll through the Pike Place Market afterwards. It was a nice Easter brunch.

    I took my mom here for lunch for her 85th birthday and it happened to be restaurant Week. When we began looking at the restaurant Week menu it was quite apparent from the server that she was not pleased. The meal was delivered timely but there was little to no follow up. Check was dropped early and we were ignored though much of our visit.

    There are virtually no finer views of Seattle to accompany an outstanding meal combined with superlative service. Cutter's is truly a gem in the Seattle culinary scene. The seafood is prepared to perfection and in the correct portion size. The menu is diverse without being overpowering. The views from the restaurant, especially at sunset, are beautiful with the entire Puget Sound in front of you. The service was attentive, prompt, professional and pleasant. If it is your first visit to Seattle or your fiftieth, Cutter's needs to be on your list.

    My fiance and I went to Cutters Crabhouse during Restaurant Week, which meant we got to try six things (two appetizers, to entrees, and two desserts). Everything we order was consistently done well from the chop salad all the way to the carrot cake bread pudding. None of the seafood was overcooked, making this a great place to go to enjoy fish or shellfish. I would definitely recommend dining here.

    We were celebrating our 47 anniversary and were taken to a "small" booth with a great view of the waterfront. The booth however had very uncomfortable seating and NO leg room. I think if some of the staff sat in the booth, they would understand our problem. It was the only negative part of our experience.

    I took a friend here for a Friday birthday lunch. It was a bit pricey for lunch but was worth every penny. I had the gnocchi which I loved! The sauce was amazing the each piece was perfect. My friend had the seafood curry. We are both curry fans but we agreed that it was by far one of the best dishes (curry or otherwise) we had every tasted. Absolutely perfect!

    I enjoyed the SRW and had the 1/2 crab sandwich with the wedge salad, which went very well together. The salad was generous but the 1/2 sandwich, although very tasty, did not have much crab on it. The Bloody Mary was excellent, so I had two!! Roy my waiter made my dining experience perfect! Also the Host was really nice and friendly. Your staff is great!! Wonderful view, and a perfect spot to people watch at the waterfront park next door.
