This restaurant his nothing short of horrible. They served my daughter raw salmon still cold and completely red inside. The births are set up awkwardly in the restaurant.

The service could not have been worse. We saw our server three time during the visit. Once to take order. Once to ask if we would like another drink and once at payment.

Was very dissatisfied w service. The price on advertising menu didn’t match the price in the bill. Our mussels came extra spicy when we were promised that non spicy can be ordered. They were sent back and when i received another drink i assumed it was a compensation for the mess up. Instead I was charged for an extra drink I didn’t order. The food was good but the bad experience overweighted the quality of food.

The food is very good but the salmon was slightly overdone. The view and service made up for it though, and it is always a favorite spot for me with friends or family. King crab legs were top notch and worth the $78 price for a special occasion.

This was one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had. Both the food and service were excellent. And it was quiet enough that we could actually hear each other speak. The location and view are wonderful too, of course. I wanted to do something special for my brother for his birthday and this absolutely fit the bil!!!

Only complaints are that service was slow and the pasta on the kids menu was linguini when the restaurant has penne on the menu. It is a nightmare for a kid ages 2-7 to eat linguini. Penne is much easier to handle and less messy. Beyond that, the food was great and the waiter was very knowledgable in answering questions.

We went to dinner at 9:150pm reservation time. Good menu and oyster variety was amazing! There was a good table deal for $90 that offered a combination of seafood including 10 oysters. Server did not really review the menu with us to let us know best deals. We did not order the deal because we could not cancel the oyster order we had already made. Maybe next time or maybe not.....we felt a bit rushed by our server.

Very disappointing visit. Arrived with reservations and had to wait for 20- mins. Tables empty but were seated late and not in a very desirable area of the restaurant. Food was only warm and not very tasty. The waiter was good but disappeared for long intervals. The oil used for the calamari dish was old and should have been replaced. Overall a disappointing visit that will have us staying away. Too many superior options in town.

Food is great. Our waiter was great also. My only complaint was how unorganized the hostess was. We had a 7:30 reservation but still had to wait 15 min for our table. And while we were waiting she appeared to seat several walkup parties. Would definitely come back for the food, though.

I always tell my Alaskan friends to make it a point to make Elliott's at least one meal stop during their stay in Seattle. I also usually tell them to try the Ling cod if available, and the spinach salad. I was disappointed that you no longer have it on your menu, and Kale is no substitute...... not even close.
