I had a team dinner here and THOROUGHLY enjoyed the experience. The Salmon...to die for. The wine and the knowledge of the wait staff, first rate. Just not sure it was worth the price, but that is my ONLY issue.

We remembered this place from years ago and expected to get our "socks knocked off" with food and beverage. Well, the prices have gone up considerably, and the seafood was just average. Nothing bad to say about the place other than the food was just an average dinner with not much creativity in the prep or selections.

I love good oysters however finding them fresh and at a reasonable price in Asia where I reside is a challenge. Its always a delight to dine at water's edge and savor a variety of fresh oysters.

I came here for a work holiday party, it had a nice set-up and beautiful view! The food was buffet style, the food was alright but the ambiance was better :)

Even on an overcast night the view was spectacular. In town for a conference. Elliot's had great reviews and really wanted to try it out. Located on the waterfront with a nice view of bay. It was a rainy day so the option of eating outside was not available. Started dinner off with oysters Rockefeller that were topped with hollandaise... More

The food was wonderful. Had great time. The coconut prawns were to die for. My wife dove into the oysters. I had the steak and she had the king crab. The waiter was great and helpful

Ordered a dozen each of 4 types of pacific oysters. Although they were slow in coming, they were very good.

Elliott's located in the Pier where I had my lunch after I visited the Public Market!! There are more than 30 types of Oyster so I just asked the Elliott to pick six types for me! The Oyster sizes are general small but it tasted fresh & chewy. We also ordered a Salmon sandwiches here which is very fresh also!... More

If you want great seafood, including raw oysters, great service and a great view, then come here. It is expensive but we believe it is worth it. Every time we come to Seattle we try to come here.

EXCELLENT food, but our potatoes were cold...for cold potatoes they were good. The tenderloin and seafood was great... Just request that they make sure the food is hot as the steak was not real hot either.
