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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

The 20% forced tip thing is a sham. Just pay your employees what you're supposed to pay them and set your prices accordingly. I will continue to avoid restaurants that impose the forced tip.
