Cutters Crabhouse Ratings and Reviews
While in Seattle my wife and I dined at Cutter's Crabhouse specifically for their crab entrees. We made a reservation and were seated within five minutes of arriving at the restaurant, near the window with a view of the bay. It took a couple of minutes for our server to make their way to our table and get our drink order, then proceeded to take ten minutes to bring our drinks. We decided to try the spinach-artichoke dip with Dungeness crab, which was excellent. For our entrees, my wife ordered the crab trio, which consisted of king, snow and Dungeness crab, while I had the king crab. The food was fresh and wonderful and were immediately happy with our food. The manager of the restaurant came by our table and was very nice and engaging, she brought us some chocolate covered strawberries that they had from their Valentine's special the night before. While the food and ambiance of the restaurant were wonderful, the attentiveness of our server was lacking. There were too many times that we had to ask the server for a different section for drink refills, butter for the bread (that never arrived) and to get the bill at the end of the meal. Again, the food was wonderful and the view was great.
There were not many choices on the menu. My friend ordered the medallions and they were so overlooked she couldn't eat them. The menu I looked at when I ordered was way different from when I had to order. It was Valentine's so they basically had a very limited selection. We wanted seafood but for this evening would have had been better off going to a steakhouse. Our drinks arrived half way between the appetizer but only after we reminded our server. This was a very expensive evening and we received little in return.
We were the first diners on Valentines Day and the wait staff was still preparing tables. they switched out all of the clear candles with red except ours. Then another server went around sprinkling flower petals on the tables except ours. Then they forgot our drinks. Then they forgot the olives for the martini. Then later the manager went around to the tables around us greeting the guests and asking them how they enjoyed their meals but he didnt stop at iur table.
The food was good. I had the crab stuffed prawns. However, there was minimal crab on top the prawns and I felt the prawn shell could have been removed before serving. It was hard to scrape the meat off the shell. View was great! We requested a window but they said they were not available. However, two window tables remained empty the whole time we dined.
We had excellent service and food at Cutters Crabhouse last week. Great chowder with applewood smoked bacon, traditional wedge salad was yummy, succulent crab, fabulous fettucine with a creamy red sauce and prawns, and tasty sourdough bread (at no charge!). Our server was attentive and efficient. Good wines as well. Of course the water view is always spectacular! Great time!
We loved our experience at Cutters. We both have been there several times over the years & noticed a few changes. The restaurant was empty when we arrived & that surprised us. The prices went up (normal over the years) but the amount of food & quality decreased. The scallops were few & SMALL. Very disappointing.
Food was good. Service was OK. Waited almost 15 minutes for a table with a reservation, server was a bit abrupt and forgot a couple of things. A couple of time the server taking care of the next table talked so loudly that my party literally had to wait for him to leave to be able to hear each other. Prices seemed reasonable for downtown Seattle. The view is great. It's a good option for lunch or dinner if you're in the area, but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit Cutter's.
The crab dip tasted very fishy.
The crab cake was poor. It was overwhelmed by too many other ingredients. The waiter noticed by distaste and did not charge us for it.
My husbands meal was good, he got the halibut and chips.
The cheese curds were great.
It was disappointing that the best food we had was fried.
The hostesses were overwhelmed... we arrived 30 mins early to our reservation. They asked us to sit in the waiting area. We waited for 40 mins and then at 6:10 I asked if we could be seated. They gave me a poor excuse as to why others had to be seated before us. Considering it was a Saturday night at 6:00 pm. They should have been better prepared for the people coming in and frankly more accommodating.
I took my boyfriend out for a birthday dinner. We were greeted right away when entering the building. Hostess was nice, but had to double check if our table was ready for a reservation. Had to wait in the lobby until we got sat down at our table. Waiter was Hank and very helpful. Food was delicious! Disappointed because my boyfriends food was not cooked how he liked it. He ordered the filet Oscar medium but came out looking like medium rare. Had to wait even longer for the food to cook some more in the kitchen. Overall a great experience but a little disappointed that his steak was undercooked.
The food was very tasty and nicely prepared. The steak Oscar was particularly good and the Caesar salad, which included kale, was really delicious. The halibut fish and chips were tasty and there were three pieces of battered fish but I think for $24, a few more of the garlic and parmesan fries might have been warranted (they were really tasty!) The setting overlooking the water, watching the ferry boat coming and going, and with a straight-on view of the Ferris wheel was truly spectacular. Our waitperson was also very enthusiastic and helpful and offered great service. I would recommend Cutters, especially to visitors to Seattle.
I've been going here for years but something has changed. Got there early, still got seated late even though it was practically empty. Confirmed our anniversary on entry but that was the last of that. Were actually out of snow crab, wasn't delivered!? Chairs were disgustingly filthy, food sat up and ready for several minutes without being served and frankly the cleanliness, service and food were not on par with all the years of history I have had with them and definitely not worth the money. So dissappointed, this used to be my go to place and typically busting at the seams. Word must be out because the place was virtually empty. So sad.
I booked a reservation for 5:30. We showed up 15 minutes early for happy hour and they said “maybe you can get in” and we waited at the front of the restaurant. 15 minutes later they sat us. I was expecting the restaurant to be busy. It was not. They sat us in the worst possible spot in the restaurant. There was multiple booths and window views available, but they sat us in the back/middle (no view). I thought to myself “maybe these tables were reserved”, nope they were empty the entire time. Service and food was good, but being treated sub-par made me not want to eat there. I will not be recommending this place to any friends nor going there again. P.S. when you tell every couple about happy hour in the bar, make sure you tell every couple.
Was here for my birthday and the food was AMAZING!! Our waitress was extremely nice and helpful. The service was great and the food was to die for. I have been here multiple times and it never disappoints. Though the food is more on the pricey side, the portion sizes are still very good. I love this restaurant.
We had a wonderful time at Cutter’s! I brought my family here for my mom’s birthday and we were all so impressed with the food, service, and excellent view. The service, in particular, was stellar. My mom and I have Celiac’s, which makes eating out a challenge sometimes. However, the chef made my mom a gluten-free version of the dish she wanted, even though a gluten free version had not been offered on the menu. They also brought out a free dessert for my mom’s birthday. Our waiter was very friendly, accommodating, and attentive. And the food was delicious. I highly recommend Cutter’s for any occasion!
Our meals were delicious and the service was both professional and fun. We had an outstanding waiter who was not only friendly, but made the effort to ensure his customers were totally satisfied with their orders. The Prime Rib and Seafood Mac & Cheese were excellent.
We waited over an hour for our entrees after a skimpy salad. The entrees were not very attractive. Mine was cold while my friend's was hot. The waiter was not on top of the situation. The entree was scallops with fingerling potatoes for me and it was really boring. My friend had scallops with risotto and the risotto was under-cooked. I would not go there again.
