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.

We had an excellent experience at this restaurant with our two girls. The king crab legs was so delicious and I appreciated that They offered a 1/2 lb portion instead of just 1lb... Which is too much for me. My husband's halibut was perfectly cooked. Our girls got a kids meal and salad and the restaurant was very accommodating to their request to switch out fries for brussel sprouts. The kids meal at $9 came with a beautiful bowl of fruit to start, a generous portion and a small sundae for dessert! We were impressed! Our server, Ethan, and the manager were both proactive sensitive to my gluten allergy which was very appreciated. Both were also extremely kind, professional and attentive. The view topped off this great dining experience!

Beautiful Restaurant in Friday on the waterfront. The menu was wonderful the service was on point. We enjoyed the calamari, manila clams & Keylime pie. We appreciate that our jambalaya was divided into two plates. Very nice evening

The food and ambience was great. It was my husbands birthday and Father’s Day. He was greeted at the door with a Happy Birthday and referred to by his first name. We were greeted by our amazing waiter James in the same manner. We would definitely recommend Cutters and would return next time we visit Seattle. Great Job James, thank you for the impeccable service!!

Host and servers were great. Food was subpar - hard potatoes, tough English muffin, very little crab on the Benedict especially for the price.

Overall we had a great experience. The server did an excellent job, made great recommendations. I ordered the grilled salmon and my food was tasty but served room temperature when I like my food hot. We had a window seat, which provided good ambience, but there were cranes and construction in our view, which is no reflection on the restaurant. The value was comparable with other Seattle restaurants but we felt the dinner was overpriced.

Food was not very good. Fish I came to restaurant because it was on the menu Black Cod... told when I got to table it was unavailable and had been for a while and still on their website. Steak and crab cakes were dry and food was over priced.

Appeared short staffed but they did the best they could overall. Had to wait awhile to receive our wine bottle and at one point we had to pour for ourselves instead of the usual custom of the wait person doing it. I suppose if they were appropriately staffed our person could’ve been more attentive. But food itself was fine. Not mind blowing but certainly not the worst. You’re here for the location and views.

We enjoyed Cutters for lunch on Sunday May 23rd.
It was only our 2nd time out dining after 16 long months.

Upon exiting it was only then that I saw the Landry's LSC display.
Wish I had known earlier as I am a Landry's Select Club member. Sadly I didn't get to earn any points that day.
