The clam chowder was very good, but the rest of our meals were disappointing. I had a chicken pot pie that was OK but my S.O.'s halibut was way overcooked and very dry - granted, halibut is a delicate fish, but we expected more from a Douglas restaurant. Wait staff were very friendly but not particularly knowledgeable about their fare. Not sure I would use the term "ambiance" but it was comfortable and casual.

Beautiful oysters, the best halibut we've EVER had and THAT PIE! Coconut Cream Pie and Pecan Pie to die for!!! It is so hard to find a restaurant that you can have a pleasant conversation in these days without feeling like you have to lean in and yell at your date or strain to hear if you are on the receiving end. Not the case here. It was such a refreshing change of pace to be able to sit comfortably and have a conversation in a normal tone of voice over dinner. Thank you!!!! Looking forward to coming back to try your Fishmonger Stew!

We L💜VE this place! We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and did it in true PNW style - at a Tom Douglas restaurant! We started with steamed clams with chorizo, butternut squash soup and a crab cocktail (never would have thought to use coleslaw as a base - YUM!). Dinner was halibut and clam linguini (DE-lish!) We capped it off with warm apple pie and a huge scoop of vanilla ice cream. Perfect NW dinner! And our server Phil was awesome.

For a Tom Douglas restaurant I was disappointed. Clam linguine -- pasta was tough, clams were tiny and way too much garlic on the bread -- which if it had been roasted garlic might have been ok. We also requested a table on the patio, which was not honored or acknowledged.

The only thing that made the evening not a total waste was the coconut cream pie.

We’re huge fans of TD’s restaurant. We honestly love his restaurants. In fact our favorite is Carlile. However, Seatown was a big let down. Food was nothing, not impressed, at all. Portions are super tiny, and that goes for dessert. $12 for a sliver of a slice for triple coconut cream pie was ridiculous. We’ll stick to our favorite. Serious pie is amazing. Dahlia is a classic and still one of our faves.

We met friends on Sunday for lunch - it was lovely! Thankfully we had a reservation and were seated on the patio. The food was exceptional! we had oysters, a king louis salad, clams/mussels and a chicken potpie that was full of chicken & vegetables (contrary to another review's experience). I was delighted to finish with the triple coconut cream pie that they always talk about on Seattle Kitchen! This was my first Tom Douglas restaurant experience - I can't wait for the next!

The food was good. Perhaps not as exceptional as I have come to expect from a Tom Douglas restaurant, but still good. We recently had a clam chowder at another Seattle Oyster Bar that was exceptionally good. We were disappointed that the chowder at Seatown didn't measure up. But all in all, we would recommend the restaurant and probably return.

King Louis salad was fresh and flavorful and filling. Chips and Salmon dip was a delight. The asparagus starter with blue cheese, bacon, and cashews was other world. Crisp and tasty seasonal drinks specials and the servers were first rate while maintaining a casual atmosphere. Love this place and will return!
