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 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 our menu offerings, we can truly say: “If it’s there, it’s here."

We were in town on vacation and my husband really wanted crab. I’m pregnant so I can’t eat a plateful of seafood, but we checked the menu ahead of time and made sure there was steak on the menu for me. My husband started with oysters which he said were wonderful and then had the crab sampler plate. He was happy with his meal. I ordered filet mignon with a crab topping. The crab and sauce were delicious. My steak on the other hand was not edible. It was dry, very chewy, and difficult to swallow. I would have liked to tell our waiter and give him an opportunity to correct the issue, but we didn’t see him again after he took our order. Someone else brought our food and not once did anyone check to see how we liked it. Additionally, I had run out of water and there was no one to ask for more. My husband ended up giving me his as he had ordered a beer as well. Overall, the experience was irritating. When the waiter finally came over after my husband had finished all of his food, I was able to tell him about the steak. He offered to get me something else, but by that time it was too late.

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.

Poor service. Sent pasta back too spicy as a marinara sauce . Presented again with a ton of cayenne peppers. Not sure done on purpose. Offered to take off bill and that’s it. What a rip

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 understand that this is close to Pike Place, but it's not worth the prices they are charging. They don't seem to have mastery over cooking seafood either. Not bad, but not impressive. Not worth the prices.
