    Forst and foremost our service bu Gabrielle ws excellent. We were the 2nd table seated as we arrived just as they opened. It is a waterfront restaurant but they sat us at a table away from the window seats. When we asked if we could have a table by the window with a view we were told those were reserved for “club members “. We were never offered a membership. As a former employee of this restaurant we were trained to always have what they called a “guest first” mentality. Clearly this is no more… unless you are a member of the club. When we left an hour later not a single view table was occupied. We won’t be back.

    My partner had Dungeness crab which was quite tasty. My fish and chips however was mediocre at best. I’m guessing not local, and frozen. I was pretty disappointed, and definitely felt like I wasted my money, and will not be returning.

    Restaurant location was really good with great views across the harbour. Menu choice was good with a nice range of meat and fish dishes. Portion size was about right - enough to fill you up but not too much. Some of the food tasted a little over seasoned with salt, although not overwhelmingly so. Service was fine but felt a little rushed - plates taken before both of us had finished eating and bill presented before we had asked for it.

    Poor quality food considering the price. Also felt we didn't get nearly as good of service as the larger tables around us. This was supposed to be the 'fancy dinner' of our honeymoon, but we were very underwhelmed.

    The person seating us at 5 ish on Sunday did not like that we asked for a table with more view. It was given to us as they tossed the menus down and marched away. We appreciated the new table for showing our out of town friend the great harbor view. Our server was great as was the food. Sorry the front desk person was having a bad day.

    First and foremost - it's a Landry's restaurant. Make sure to sign up for the Landry's Select Club! (No, don't work for them; but, the perks are awesome) There are two seating sections: bar and dining room. I sat in the bar area by a window and loved it. Dining alone this time, I read a book while having dinner. The clam chowder was amazing! I'll have that again. For entree, I decided on the shrimp with pea risotto. While delicious, I could have used some more (heat) spice; not in the form of hot sauce or tabasco, but some sort of chili or something. That would have taken it to the next level, I will visit again during this trip and have the Crab Sampler - reasonable price for a half pound of each of three crabs - $140. I'm here for a conference from Houston.

    Not the restaurant we remember from our time as residents of the Seattle area. Food was very mediocre and over priced. Waiter staff was un-engaged and needed to be asked for refills. I don’t think I will return.

    We got there an hour early on purpose and sat at the bar. We wanted to get a table by the window for the views. The person at front said that he would try but its very difficult. The bartender was very arrogant and was getting involved in all of our conversations. He is a detriment to the business. Others at bar were mentioning the same thing. When we were seated, of course we did not get the table we requested. There were 2 tables open where we requested and they said no. We asked to wait until another table in front of us as they were having desert and he said no. We sat at our table and did not have anyone sit in the open tables at all while we were there. The food was good and a bit pricy but still good. Very sad they would not accommodate us with the table request.

    We love Cutters! We’ve dined here a few times and each time has been wonderful. This past experience truly stood out to us. The restaurant was extremely busy and the entire staff was working overtime to make it a great experience. The Manager was even lending a helping hand and took care of our entire order. You could really see the passion he had to ensure everyone was having the best time. It made the night that much more enjoyable. If you love seafood and an unbelievable view then this is the place for you! Just make sure you book a reservation 😊

    Food was not great - don't recommend. King salmon was 8 minutes later to the table than the other meals. It was dry and bland. Fish and chips was mostly breading, could barely see the fish. Will not come back and do not recommend you do either.
