The Pacific oysters were huge and the crab cake special appetizer was great. The sword fish, halibut, and jambalaya were all very good. Finished dinner with a molten lava cake.

Had out of town visitors and wanted to show them the view and enjoy a seafood meal. Menu is limited, but ample. No focaccia which we always looked forward to.
Great and informative service.

Wonderful view with great selection of food and drinks. Some items were out, but we were told upon sitting what that was. Our waiter was very friendly and answered all of our questions. We also went with a dessert and the caramel sauce was possibly the best caramel I've ever had.

Good food, but somewhat slow service. The restaurant is clearly suffering from lack of staff, as only about 10% of the tables were occupied, and the choices for dining times were extremely limited.

Nice place overlooking Puget Sound. The crab and artichoke dip was very tasty. The house Louie was outstanding - best prepared salmon I’ve ever had. And the key lime pie really topped off the meal. Excellent service as well.

We had a very nice time for our anniversary dinner. My first time to eat halibut or crab cakes and I enjoyed both immensely. The key lime pie was yummy too! The hostess and waitstaff were terrific, and the view was too. We will definitely return the next time we visit Seattle!

It’s not what it used to be. I call it CCC ( cheap commercial crap )for tourists that they charge a huge amount of money for. One pound of King Crab $154 and it’s not so good. I would absolutely pass.

We took two friends in town for Alaska Cruise to Cutters. We had a nice view table looking over the sound and privacy. Service was attentive and outstanding. Enjoyed wine and beer with starters of crab cake/dip, Penn Cove mussels (exquisitely fresh and melts in your mouth). Cutters Louie was unusual with salmon, prawns and crab, fresh and refreshing. Salmon entree was done just right. Linguini and Jambalaya were enjoyed by our guests. Molten chocolate and key lime pie complimented the courses.

Will be back soon for sure.

Was not impressed with the service - brought oysters after our dinner was served - never came by and asked how things were going or fill up water. Was not very crowded - food was okay -

Great king crab legs but pretty pricey. Really an upscale restaurant — don’t think “crab house”. No complaints whatsoever. Food excellent, service great. Ambience excellent with views over the bay.

It was our 30th anniversary and the host placed us with a great view, but even better, we were almost by ourselves in the raised floor seating area. He even made sure our server was aware and congratulated us. It was greatly appreciated and he exhibited what great customer service is all about.
Thank you,

Trinity was an excellent server! The kitchen really went in on the crab and spinach artichoke dip it was the best I’ve ever had in my life. The host Chris is also my new favorite person, I’ll forgive him for seating me behind a a couple big parties who blocked the view he told me I’d have but he was so elegant with his words and made me feel special! Thank you Cutters for an wonderful dinner.

They add a 4% Living Wage to your total check which was a surprise. It put a sour note on the evening for us.
