This restaurant has a great excellent service, but unfortunately, we got a terrible food. We ordered Dungeness Crab, it was really salty and too dried. The manager changed and gave us free crab, but still the crab was still too salty.

I got the king crab legs which were great but the sides were not, it came with mashed potatoes and green beans both of which were cold and bland and the green beans were very uncooked. My husband ordered the halibut, which was also very bland. This was a very expensive dinner so overall the experience was disappointing.

Found this place on Google reviews. Not disappointed. Was quiet around the harbour but Elliott's was packed, glad we booked. Service was good but more importantly friendly. Food was amazing. Definitely recommend

We have been to Elliott's a number of times, but this was the most disappointing. For $250.oo you would expect to have much better food than you can make at home. My wife commented that my mashed potatoes and beans i make are far better and tastier than we had at the restaurant. Bland at best. Not sure what's up, but hope Elliott's is not on a downhill slide with their food as "reputation" will only get you so far. We'll try you again at some point in the future, but be assured if our food experience is disappointing again, there are many fine restaurants around.

Amazing atmosphere. Use Open table to reserve a table outside so you can take in the beautiful bay views. The sunset is amazing. The waiters are extremely knowledgable about their menu and wines to pair with what. Don't be shy, just ask. Very impressed with the whole dining experience. Freshest seafood!

Great place! Wonderful views by the water. Food was pretty good but, not something to come over and over again to. The service could’ve been a little bit better. But overall, it was a pretty good experience.

Great food and service. Attention to the comments on a reservation- very pleasing. Maybe a bit pricey, but still worth a visit. The only downside was a charge for an extra piece of toast to come with the mussels - kind of “dime and nickel“ for the fine dining establishment. Both halibut and rock fish were flavorful and nicely presented.
Would come back on occasion.

Delicious crab cakes. Oysters were small but good flavor. The swordfish was well prepared and not overcooked. Added bacon to the swordfish for added touch (since bacon goes with everything).

By far, the worst service we have received in years! There were so many employees walking around and walking by us and not doing anything to help the service improve. We had to ASK for a server, to order, for silverware and for a check.

Everything about the meal itself was fantastic... my only complaint, was more relating to the etiquette of our server... the restaurant had touch screen credit card units, which was already set for 18% gratuity... I could have adjusted it, but the server was really pushy - instructing me to ‘just insert my card... now hit ok’... When I asked, don’t I need to sign?... again he was abrupt, ‘no. Just hit ok’ (which it then prompted me that I needed to sign)... I will be much more assertive for the privacy that servers usually give you when making the decision to tip the amount you feel is appropriate. This level of pushiness was unacceptable in an older server who should know better. Food though? Fantastic...

Worst dinining experience ever. Exceptional choice for oysters (expensive but worth it). Definitely not acceptable service. If you don't want customers, just make it clear. Will never return again

We were in Seattle for the first time and decided to try Elliott’s for a birthday dinner. Our reservation was for 7pm but we weren’t seated until 40 minutes later. The manager apologized which was nice of him to acknowledge it but still set our evening back from other plans. The waiter was nice but a little overbearing. The service was extremely slow due to the apparent overbooking on the reservations and the food was average at best, which we were not expecting based on prior reviews. Needless to say it was a disappointment for the occasion.

We celebrated our anniversary here and our server took such great care of us. He gave great recommendations, made sure our food was what we were expecting and treated us with such care. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant for any meal, but do yourself a favor and make a reservation.

Our server, Javier, as well as the food, was excellent. However, the hostess at the front desk was rude and condescending.
If we had not been a repeat customer, we would have just turned around and left.

The food was good, but Elliott's was overrun by tourists. The servers were trying, but they were clearly serving more customers than they have the capacity to handle. I had been there many times before and I used to count on Elliott's as a reliable, quality seafood restaurant, but I won't be returning. With the high prices and too many customer's for the staff I can see they got greedy.
