Had a gift card for Elliott’s and my boyfriend and I decided to go for my birthday. Atmosphere and view is nice. Seating was quick. We asked for a booth since there were at least 4 open and were told they were saving them for reservations. Would be fine but both our table and the booth could sit four people. Drinks came out wrong. Bf ordered the New York steak medium and it came out barely even rare. He asked for it to be cooked more and it came back charred and burnt. I had the Bering Sea crab legs which were good. And for dessert we had the salted caramel sundae which was probably best things we ate all night. Service was not quick and our server did not seem interested in us at all. Never even introduced himself and barely checked in. Not worth the money.

We started coming here for special occasions several years ago. The menu is very diverse with fresh local ingredients. Food is always prepared nicely and prices are fair for what you get. We enjoy the friendliness of the wait staff and who could not love that view? Oh, and did I mention the oysters?

A true tourist trap. Food was sub par and prices high. A lot more options in Seattle to try than this place!

It was a great experience. Our waiter seemed rushed plus the dinning area was a little squished. I could hear the whole conversation off the take next to me. Food was good and spicy. Ceaser salad was a little sad. Well dressed but kind of limp. I really enjoyed the wine list and trying oysters.

We arrived at the restaurant at our reservation time and we were immediately seated even though patrons without reservations were waiting. We started with oysters and they were excellent. We than had both clam chowder and an order of their spicy corn chowder. Both were good but not hot. That was disappointing. Calamari was also ordered as an appetizer and it was terrible. It seemed to be just small bites of breading with out any calamari. We would not return.

Good. Not $175.00 great. The food was just mediocre - nothing special.

Absolutely wonderful meal for my guests from out of town. We started with an assortment of raw oysters and they were incredible. Our server, Ryan, expertly guided us through our selection and everyone in our party enjoyed. This was the first time I have tried your Dungeness crab cakes and you now hold the title for best crab cake in Seattle. We also enjoyed a variety of lunch items and we were all very happy campers. Great place, great service, great views.

I was visiting Seattle on business and used the opportunity to take my son (who is a UW student) to dinner. We had a delicious meal at Elliott's. Our server was excellent. She made some great recommendations regarding menu choices. We enjoyed everything from our oyster starter through the sorbet we had for dessert. My son's entree, the sockeye salmon, was absolutely delicious!
