A bit pricey but you're sitting at one of the best waterfront view restaurants in Seattle.
Very walking area and good (paid) parking options abound. Food is better than average and the vegetables were surprisingly fresh tasting.

Physical distancing was observed and service staff wore their masks appropriately. Our waiter was attentive and polite. The cocktail menu is interesting. The wine list is extensive and not outrageously expensive. Our Caesar salad was excellent; the two entrees were delicious (grilled shrimp / halibut) and we were able to request minor changes (French fries instead of rice / halibut grilled instead of Cajun spiced). We completed our meal with a Mountain Blackberry Cobbler, which was delightful. We enjoyed ourselves immensely!

Overpriced and all the food was overcooked. Would probably not return. Service was solid. Going to Seattle you’d want to try the seafood, but not when it’s overcooked. We tried the blackened fish which was $40 for a small sliver and super dry. Over priced and not worth it. The clam chowder was the best option.

Dinner outside at sunset was a beautiful ending to a wonderful dinner. The Fettucini with Salmon and the Peach Slush for dessert was perfect!!

Our Fish and Chips were good. There was nobody eating inside when we went, everyone was out side. We sat inside which was fine but our server didn't really seem to care about taking care of us. We are in the service industry ourselves and so I may be a little more critical the the average patron, but I think it is really important for that server to at least pretend as though they are interested in taking care of you. I had Ice Tea and it tasted rancid to me so I told our server and she seemed a little put out that I didn't like it. I was not looking for her to take it off the bill, but she did not charge me for it.

Comfortable space to dine outside and watch sunset by yourself, with friends or family. Very conscious to spacing and cleanliness during the current situation.

We love this restaurant and appreciated the ability to reserve an outside table. The food was good but there was a very limited menu compared the usual. Understand problems related to the pandemic but would have appreciated a couple more offerings for under $30. The service was excellent!

The only complaint was the restrictions because of the pandemic. There was no valet or handicapped parking so my invalided husband needed to walk quite far.

We were disappointed with the lobster tail dinner. The lobster was not quite cooked through, and was chewy. The mashed potatoes were seasoned so much you couldn't taste the potatoes. The green beans were too al dente, and swimming in butter. Luckily the outdoor view and great service from Kaila made it a good experience, but we won't be rushing back for another lobster dinner, even at $20.

Great spot to watch Elliott bay, lovely environment, great service. The food was OK not wonderful, shrimp were dry and clearly cooked before hand and warmed up, not the greatest. Still, special and good place for out of town guests....

Food at Anthony’s is always very good if not haute cuisine but isn’t priced like that either! Service was great and it’s always a joy to be on the waterfront. (We miss miss miss our Shilshole location!)

We had the special which was tempura battered shrimp - all you could eat with a tangy coleslaw and french fries. The shrimp were large and the batter was excellent and they kept coming until we were full.

Bell Street Diner is one of our neighborhood restaurants. We love it! They have a fabulous patio right on Elliott Bay with amazing views of the Seattle waterfront, Mount Rainier and the Olympic Mountains.

We are treated extremely well at the restaurant by everyone who works there. We usually sit at the counter and talk to the chefs while we eat. During Covid-19 we have been sitting on the patio. A little hot on this visit but great just the same.

All of the food is excellent. The focus is on seafood but they offer a variety of entrees, salads, chowder and desserts. Try Bell Street Diner out!

This was a wonderful experience, much needed right now! We sat outside where the temperature was perfect, and lovely view. Our server couldn't have been better! What drew us in was the all you can eat prawns, which were so delicious, light batter and so tasty I didn't use any sauces. With hand cut fries and good coleslaw, it was a yummy meal. We didn't overeat, and are considering returning for another great experience!

Our server was amazing. She didn't hover but brought us what we needed, when we needed it. It was almost like she was reading our minds.
Ans the prawns were fantastic! The best part may have been the coleslaw. It was the best coleslaw I've ever had!
