The OpenTable Team

No disrespect to coffee and cream cheese-smeared hot dogs, but seafood reigns as the most delicious and enduring icon of Seattle's dining scene. Emerald City chefs need not look far beyond local waters to source star ingredients for the best seafood in Seattle. Plump oysters plucked from the edges of Puget Sound, salmon from the Copper River and Dungeness crab scooped up from the Pacific all dazzle foodies citywide. But where are the most experienced, expert diners eating seafood in Seattle? Discover the Tastemaker Lists. We used data from thousands of restaurants to determine the best eateries according to OpenTable's smartest, savviest diners. Book a table and get ready to feast on the finest fish and seafood of the Pacific Northwest.
