I have been to Elliots several times. This is the first time that neither of us liked our food. I would think that if it is a limited menu that the food would be as good or better than before social distancing.

I ate here during July 2020. The restaurant used good table spacing and all servers were taking proper covid precautions. Our party was seated outside to enjoy the great views while dinning at the pier. The food was very good and service was attentive. We had the calamari appetizer, scallop entree and rockfish entree. The entrees were great and the calamari was pretty good but we'd probably order a different one next time as there were so many options that sounded great. Overall we had a great experience and would return.

My boyfriend and i went here for an early dinner on July 4th. We got oysters on the half shell, calamari, and the scallops with risotto. It was amazing and our server was awesome. We will definitely be going back!

Our food and our server were excellent.... Elliots is definitely not cheap and the new service fee adds 20+% on top of your bill and your server is only getting a small percentage of that so when they are excellent as ours was plan to tip additional.

Amazing customer service everyone was super friendly and made me feel at home. The waiter took the time to explain how the food was made and details about where it was from which was very interesting and nice to hear that everything was fresh and mostly local! The food was AMAZING!! Everything i ordered i would give 5 stars! The dessert and food was perfect. The restaurant itself was beautiful! Great feature is that once you are done dinning you walk out through the back which happens to be the pier. Perfect for watching the sunset or even just to walk around. Definitely will be coming back

Waitress was not attentive, was not courteous. Drink order was substituted and she did not ask if I was ok with that. Receipt reflected charge for a different drink. Empty plates remained on our table for too long.

Everything was amazing, as it always is but we were a little taken back when we received the bill. They have included an automatic 20% service charge. We were not told about this until the waiter dropped off the bill. Of course, we had a lot of questions about this and wanted to know where the $$ goes, especially since it seemed that we were expected to pay a tip, twice!! Our waiter said that the restaurant owner gets a percentage then all the other workers get a payout. So, I asked if I decided to tip more on top of that 20%, who will get that and he said that the waiter gets 100% . Not sure I will go back because of that random charge, I don't think it is fair, unless you just assume that 20% is the tip and call it done.

Disappointing. Know this has been a difficult time for the restaurants on the waterfront but the steep increase in prices coupled with poorer quality in their food preparation will make us think twice before eating their again.

My server waited on me inside while I waited for my date to arrive and moved me outside to a table with a great view right before she arrived. It was evident that she was focused on making sure that we had a great time. She gave us just the right amount of attention.

The food looked great and tasted better. Great wine menu.

Enjoyed finally coming back to our favorite Oyster House in Seattle to celebrate. I look forward to the full menu coming back as my son and I come for the oysters, which were excellent, but my wife comes for the creme brule, which was not on the short menu.

Nice meal in any event, glad you are back open... hope you stay that way.
We'll be back

We're long time fans of Elliot's, and since we live in West Seattle, we can go quite often and indulge in the world's best selection of PNW oysters, and other seafood entrees. We just happened to be there on what became the last evening they could be open temporarily, due to the Covid-19 regulations that shut down restaurants and bars. We ate at the bar counter and had great conversation with our bartender and other patrons. We're only sorry that we can't go again until the regulations are lifted. Life, please return to normal. Elliot's; we'll be back!

Food and service was fantastic! We’re visiting from the east coast and found this to be a great evening out. The server was very knowledgeable and super friendly. He guided our selection of about 20 oysters from around the Sound. We had a wonderful experience and will absolutely go back.

Good food and service but when the bill came, the server who was excellent all night told us there’s a 20% service fee the restaurant changes and asked us to tip more on top of that. There was only two of us dining, my bill was already close to $200 and you’re charging everyone an automatic service fee? For this and this itself I won’t recommend this place, which is too bad because oysters were good. Value though at 20 percent service fee is terrible. This fee should have been mentioned prior to ordering.
