waitress was great. Food was good, but came cold.
Great food with a great view of the water. Staff was friendly and very accommodating. If you love oysters, this is the place to go!
I'll be back!
The food was SO DELISH that we came to dinner to Elliotts TWO dinners in a row 😋
GREAT food, ambiance - perfect place to celebrate my daughter’s birthday.
Our server was fantastic! She was funny and had great recommendations!
Staff very attentive and genuinely nice. I had the seafood linguine and it had a bit too much going on. The extended wine list link is printed on the food side of the menu instead of below the wines so I ordered what I thought was the only caberenet sauvignon and didn't care for it. Manager let me swap it out for a better bottle on the extended list. Nicer wines more than 100% mark up. Fun location, sit outside of you can.
Delicious food (I ordered the scallops and they were cooked to perfection) and amazing, personable staff. The outdoor dining area was so nice and very warm
Last minute decision turned into an excellent late afternoon. Oysters, mains and drinks were outstanding. Waitress was great...knowledgeable and friendly. Definitely on my list of restaurants to frequent often.
Andy was the perfect server. All staff were super friendly and efficient. Best halibut ever...moist and flavorful. My companions raved about their meals, fish and chips and chicken.
The atmosphere is great and they’ve done a wonderful job of following covid guidelines. I felt very comfortable with their space and am appreciative of being able to see the incredible views from inside or out! The outside eating area is set up to be warm and is as elegant as the indoor eating areas. As usual, the food and service were outstanding!
Good food. Nice service. Nice view over the bay. A little pit pricy.
The oyster and artichoke dip didn't agree with me. The fresh oysters were great. The service was quite good except for the offputting pitch the server made at the end to get a higher tip because the house kept too bid a portion of its mandatory 20% surcharge, which is also offputting. Hostess was great. Steak was undercooked--more rare than medium rare.
Excellent first post-covid lunch with friends. Elliott's has figured out how to keep people separated safely and the lunch was terrific. Fresh salads, fresh fish. We'll be back soon!
Outstanding seafood and superb server. I think his name was Andy? (Curly hair, from Kansas)
Our waiter was very knowledgeable. The food was mediocre. The 20% added charge was ridiculous. It was cold and the heater that was next to us was out of propane. The staff said it could not be refilled. So we just froze. Definitely a disappointment
Food has slipped, and delivered without key ingredient. Waiter annoying. Given 1.5 hours to get out. Bad night!
There is a time limit for how long patrons can sit at the table. I understand why but it also took 20 minutes before anyone even took our drink order. Overall we enjoyed it but the service was a little lacking.
Great oysters, excellent calamari and champagne - a very fun and successful dining experience!
There is an automatic 20% service charge that goes solely to the restaurant. On an expensive meal, hardly seems fair to the server.
Good service, old but clean interiors. Friendly wait person. Good cocktails & appetizers. Husband enjoyed crab cakes w/root veggies. My seafood pasta was congealed & tasteless. French fries were soggy. Guinness chocolate cheesecake was great! Very pricey, so come w/ $$$.
Waiter was very slow and forgot about us alot. He never asked if we want a bowl or cup for soup and charged for the bowl. The soup was almost cold like if it was last of soup on bottom. Never asked what was wrong just took it and walked away. Wife and I both got the filet minon and for the price was not worth it. Bottle of wine was the best out of all food. They charge you automatically 30% Tip on the bill I'm sorry you should do that especially if ur staff did poorly. Manager was good and very professional took the tip % off. And he was very good about listening to the issue. Unfortunately we will not go back we give 2 out 5 stars.
The food was excellent complemented by outstanding service from our server, Tom. he made the evening perfect
Great experience and menu options, must be prepared for abundance of options and beverages
Food was very good. Service was slow but good. We had a reservation but we’re still put in a seat near the door. It was a special occasion and I had asked for a view with a view. I would go again when in Seattle
Love this place. You can always count on great food and happy staff
Food was good. Service not great. Wait staff not very attentive or friendly. We were outside with a great view but there were no heaters so it was cold.
Service was okay; however, given the fact that a 20% service fee was automatically added to our check it would have been nice to have received better service. We needed to ask to have refills of our drinks, a minor inconvenience. Also, we were there to celebrate our 25th anniversary and the waitress brought our check without asking if we wanted any dessert.
My expectations increase when a 20% gratuity is imposed. The appetizers were ok. Tiny portions. We didn’t like the fact that our ordered potato bread was served cold. Glad that our waitress replaced it heated. (Most classy establishments don’t charge for this type of bread). My draft beer was served in a water glass and not in a frosted or chilled glass mug.
Our entrees were good. Oysters tasted very fresh.
Waitress was courteous. Bus person did not respond to our many “thanks”.
Overall it was just average. Perhaps overrated on the app.
My only real complaint would be the additional 20% charge that went to owners. It was inappropriate! It was unprofessional for the waiter to point this out on two separate occasions.
Very comfortable and safe outdoor seating. Excellent food and service!
William was an amazing server. Great experience. Wonderful food!
Our first visit to Elliot's was a memorable seafood experience and it lived up to its reputation. Our server, Kelly, was not only polite and efficient but also informative about the cultivation of oysters and the history of the restaurant. If you cant decide between the Creme Brulee and the Guiness Chocolate Cheesecake, get both!
The food was fresh but not as flavorful as we thought it would be. Our server was friendly but didn’t have any specific recommendations. Just said everything was great. We though It was good but not so great.
This is a must go spot when visiting Seattle. Great environment for dinner on the water with great views.
Outdoor tent was
Well ventilated, warm and great waterfront view...Delicious food and excellent service!
Food, service, ambiance was wonderful. It was a bit pricey!
For a touristy part of town this place is the place to go to. Food and service was excellent and it's nicely located on the pier with views of ferries coming and going. As a Seattle native my only issue is the touristy pricing - which would prevent me from returning. A "nice" dinner for two with a few oysters and a couple drinks each shouldn't land at $200 (w/tip).
When in Seattle we always make time for one meal at Elliotts's. Their food is exceptional and the service is always outstanding. Now, next time I go I'm just going to say bring me 5 loves of your bread and a bunch of butter because it's just the best sourdough loaf I've found in the NW. lol I had the scallops while my wife had the crab/shrimp combo salad - with soup to start. All were great. We both highly recommend Elliott's!
