This allows Cutters to be directly influenced by the unique nature of the market.

Service was horrible. Food was cold and late. I was entertaining $25M in business opportunity and the restaurant came highly recommended. Thankfully the restaurant experience didn’t kill the deal.

The food was very underwhelming....the menu items sounded amazing on paper, but when we actually got the food, it was overcooked and cold. The best thing on the restaurant week menu was definitely the appetizer--the clam chowder was excellent. The creme brulee had WAY too much sugar on top. We had to take it all off. The service was very very slow... it took them 10 minutes just to give us water when we sat down. Won't be back any time soon.

We were greeted by two hosts, who were very informally joking (to include a girl one is "seeing"), then as we were seated, the host acted like it was an inconvenience to show us to our seat. We immediately noticed how dirty the cloth on the seats were, presumptively from cocktail sauce. We then asked if we could be moved to a table with a waterfront view, then we met with the "that section is usually reserved for those with reservations", so of course we informed the gentleman that we did, in fact, have reservations.

As we moved to the further section of the dining area, we made the quick realization that the hosts seated the more formally dressed parties (older white couples in jackets and nicer clothing) where the better, and cleaner I might add, tables were.

We immediately ordered appetizers. I ordered four traditional oysters, and my date ordered the clam chowder without the bacon. About eight minutes pass and we receive the appetizers, the oysters as described, and clam chowder with bacon. My date politely brought up that she thinks the chowder has bacon in it. The server insisted it was prepared without the pork, but with visual confirmation, she was proved wrong.

We ordered our entrees, the sea scallops for me, and a half pound of king crab legs for my date. About twenty minutes elapses before we get the food. The crab legs are cold, and the scallops are barely darkened. We were over it, we kept quiet and ate. The overall taste of the scallops were exceptional, minus the temperature. The mayonnaise creamy sauce was interesting with the vegetables and braised pork belly, which was also a little under room temperature.

Overall, the food was decent, and reasonably priced. The wait staff seemed unexperienced due to my water glass becoming empty three times, and my counterpart's twice. The window overlooking the Puget Sound was filthy, with a blocked view. We simply felt dismissed and discriminated due to our casual appearance; will not return.

Sever seemed to leave table area after one question being answered. Had to recall server several time to place drink orders (one person would order and the server would walk away). Brought bill after asking for desert menu. Sever seemed to be distracted and was not impressed.

Oh ya, food was great.

The standout was the attentive service by Ben our server. That and the drinks were excellent the view was great and the oysters fresh.
But what came off the stove lacked quality and inspiration. I hate to write it off as a 'tourist restaurant' but that's kind of the deal. There are far better meals right nearby.

Cutters Crabhouse is my favorite Seattle restaurant. I have been going with family and friends since 2010. I have never been disappointed in the food or the service. The employees are cheerful, helpful and attentive. The food is outstanding. I will remain a customer as long as I live in the Seattle area.

We were disappointed in our overall experience - it wasn't horrible, but just "ok" and for a tab of $250 for 4, that's disappointing. We had a 7pm reservation but weren't seated until close to 7:20. Not a big deal. Service was very good and our waitress was friendly and efficient. But the food mostly fell short. My "shrimp stuffed with crabmeat" was served with only FOUR very small shrimp and the filling was primarly breadcrumbs, I honestly couldn't see or taste much crab. I had to scrape it off the shell as it was presented butterflied with the shell still on. My husband ordered a tuna roll and it was OK. The lobster/shrimp mac & cheese was enjoyed but the best meal of the night was the grilled steak - go figure for a seafood place. They did bring my daughter a lovely creme brulee to celebrate her birthday which was a nice touch. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this place when there are so many great seafood restaurants in Seattle. It's a shame because the view is dynamite.

We went twice in the span of 3 days. The first was for a birthday and they made every effort to make the experience a great one! The only complaint is that there are some spaces where the floor manager and servers do a lot of talking, sometimes shouting over a table to speak with each other that can be detracting. The best seats are the windows overlooking the bay.

A bit overpriced for our taste. Dining room was very dark. Food was very Good overall except the crab legs were full of water with covered the plate and ruined the risotto. For $65 I expect better. Many better options in Seattle including Etta's right across the street.

Cutters has always been on my list of Top 10 Seattle restaurants. But this time I was disappointed with diner. The food - salad, rolls, pasta entree with crab - was all mediocre. I will certainly give Cutters another try, but did not thoroughly enjoy my meal. The waiter, however, was outstanding.
