Great location, with nice view. professional serve personnel.
excellent cuisine. friendly atmosphere.
Despite 20% service charge (which often leads to complacency) Andrea was a wonderful hostess. We had a great evening and great food. Highly recommended
Great food! The salmon was cooked perfectly and coconut pie was delicious. They no longer allow tipping as a 20% service charge is already included in the bill, which the hostess told us about as we were being seated. Good service, although I was not greeted when I arrived even though there were multiple people at the hostess counter.
Actually attended to check out the place during Seattle Restaurant Week. Couple of us ordered off those menu choices and simply loved the Chowder, Spinach Salad and Salmon, but of course the Coconut Cream pie was the best! Two others ordered the burger off main menu and were both very pleased as well - WOW the amount and taste of the french fries!!! Would definitely go back again and highly recommend the place!
Overpriced mediocre food. Typical of a tourist area. Biggest waste of $200 on food for two I have ever spent.
We ate at Etta's during Restaurant Week. The choices on the menu were appealing and the price was certainly right. The salmon was overcooked. Maybe some people like it that way but as a NW native it was overdone. Our waitress could have been more attentive. We had to remind her to bring the tea that we had ordered. Then we received green tea when we had asked for black tea.
The server was outstanding and very informative and knowledgeable. My fish was really good... my husbands fish stew could’ve used bread to soak up the remaining sauce. A little pricey but comparable. The waitress made the night worth it!!!
Excellent dinner, they seated us quickly food came out in a timely fashion (but not rushed). Our waitress was excellent with our 16 month old - got her food out quickly and packed up our food when we needed to leave. Overall great experience.
Usually I have a wonderful experience with food at Etta's this is one of my favorite special locations with my husband. My co-workers and I went for SRW and I was disappointed. The salmon was very overcooked and the seasoning was completely different than the usual salmon. The wait staff was really attentive and good though.
Loved, loved my my meal at Etta's. Great service, wonderful table looking out onto the street. I would go back to Etta's in a heartbeat.
Food was amazing and our waitress Marilyn was very kind and fun.
As usual, a wonderful experience. The food was wonderful. Even with slight changes over the years on things on the menu, it was delicious. The service was phenomenal. We had wonderful wait staff.
Wonderful seafood great drinks and a coconut cream pie to die for. Found service not at highest levels might because of Seattle’s new wage practices auto 20 percent added on to bill
Bartender is the best of all seattle
Always good food. Prefer the smaller footprint to the larger restaurants. Tom's places are all worth it!
A fun place with an interesting view looking out toward the bay. Food was very good, service was good, ambience is kind of clubby. Great fir dinner, not so much as a really special date
Good food able to carry quiet conversation nicelocation
Enjoyed SRW lunch meal. Only 2 courses out of 3 that were listed. The salad with pork belly and cashews and a mustard like dressing was excellent. The rubbed with love salmon was outstanding, too. Cooked to perfection. But my friend's salmon wasn't cooked as well. I couldn't describe it but it looked odd and did not see the fillet flake apart with a fork like mine. The famous triple coconut cream bite wasn't included since we ordered the salad. We decided to split a full slice of the pie, and it was FABULOUS!
Wonderful food and service.
The salmon was overcooked, but everything else was delish. Our waiter, actually all servers disappeared for about 20 minutes. It ended up being a very long lunch
I liked my spinach salad and salmon was flavorful and moist, but rather than wedge of cornbread pudding, would have preferred something else like some sort of potato. I thought it was good, but not spectacular. The dessert which was cheese cake could have been better, maybe just a little larger and not such a hard crust. Perhaps something slightly more traditional in shape and texture. The service was good.
Very forgettable...service includes a 20% mandatory tip which leads to mediocre levels...The bread was the highlight..$160 for 2 people.
Been here a number of times over the years. Consistent with some good side dish cjoices. Carrot soup was excellent. Prompt service and seating. Wine by glass a tad limited
Perfect place for a relaxing dinner.
We were very well received. Friendly, knowledgeable service. Beautifully prepared plates with very tasty meals. A good variety of delicate dishes to choose from, as well as a good selection of wine. Ultimately the best seafood I’ve had in Seattle. Thank you, Etta’s!
Great service great food!
We had the New York steak and the seaweed linguini. It was good, not great. Didn’t feel like it was the highest quality of ingredients- local or not. Dungeness crab in linguini was pretty fishy. Pasta had a good flavor. Steak was tougher than most NY’s we’ve had and was plated with a lot of ‘gravy’ that I felt took away from steak flavor. Waitress indicated they are known for the salmon and crab cakes, so maybe would have been more pleased with these selections, but as someone who crabs and fishes it’s hard to justify purchasing seafood we already do well.
We booked a table during restaurant week. It was busy, but everything went very well.
We had a table by the window with a nice view. Location is right by Pike place market and the original Starbucks, so it is no doubt busy, but would be a great place to take visitors for nice lunch or dinner after visiting the Market. Service was excellent, attentive but not intrusive and all the food was excellent. I had salmon with polenta and asparagus, my husband had a smoked pork chop with pureed cauliflower. It was all wonderful -Loved the cheesecake--very light and creamy w graham cracker crust, cherries and pistachio. We will be back.
We very much enjoyed our dinner here. The waitstaff were friendly and accommodating. Dinner was delicious and well-prepared. I always worry about restaurants over-cooking seafood. Not a problem here. It was fresh and lovely.
I ate here for my birthday and the food was real delicious!! Calamary very tasty!! They do include the service charge (gratuity) and service was excellent!! That did not bother me at all. Will definately go again while visiting Seattle.
I went here with a group of friends to celebrate a birthday and restaurant week since none of us has ever tried Ettas. We love other Tom Douglas restaurants but there was a 'typo' on the restaurant week for lunch option-3 for $18. When we got there and looked at the restaurant week option, it said 2 for $18 and server informed us that we can add dessert for $3. Our food took longer than everyone else's who were seated well after us. We had a great server and my salmon was delicious but not my favorite Tom Douglas.
Service was very slow and inconsistent. Our food came out before all of our drinks were at the table, and there was only three of us.
I was there a year ago and wasn’t impressed.
We tried it again and had an amazing meal .
Every item was excellent from the oysters to the entrees that we all had. Very good!!!
Great seafood brunch items, Excellent service and good cocktails
Easter brunch was terrific! Everyone loved their meals and the service was outstanding from the moment we walked in. We will be back to Etta's!
Fabulous. Food was great; location fun for view and people watching. Brunch cocktails yummy
Great food and service!
The server was slow to greet us. We didn’t talk to anyone for 15 after we were seated. Almost walked. Good was decent server was nice but slow.
My husband doesn't eat seafood (but I love it) and so he had a steak while I enjoyed a steamed crab. Both were very good. And when I told the waiter that my husband didn't eat seafood, he offered a menu from a sister restaurant, telling my husband that he could order from it if he so chose. The steak was on the Etta's menu, though, so that's what he went with. We really appreciated this extra gesture from our waiter.
Sweet place for lunch - excellent fish/shrimp and chips!
