Fun seafood restaurant especially if you sit outside. Lots of harbor activity going on around you. Good sea breezes and sea smells. Good selection of oysters. Good crab, halibut, salmon, etc. My only complaint would be that they tend to overcook the fish just very slightly, but not enough to keep me away!

Tried to spend hundreds of dollars tonight but they decided our party of 6 did not deserve to get seated because 1 party member "stumbled down the walk"???? Pardon????? Never have I been treated this way by any establishment In all my 44 years....Dennis decided to cost elliots a $1k bill tonight because he has a control issue? The abysmal... More

We came to Elliott's based upon recommendations and reputation. With all the great options in and around Downtown Seattle, we still went with the waterfront icon. Starting with a 1/2 dozen oysters on the half shell, I knew this was a good choice. With all the oysters available, we left it in the hands of the staff to pick out... More

Very accommodating restaurant with delicious food. My only "complaint" is that they serve sooo much food that it is impossible to eat it all! Still left stuffed to the gills!

by far one of the most amazing meals ive had in my life. The service was great, the food was fast, the drinks were delicious. Went to a couple restaurants before this one and the seafood selection wasnt great, but this one had so much to chose from. Sat outside on the patio and got to enjoy the sunset over... More

I would have given 5 stars if the less than hospitable Hostesses would have at least been polite. There was no greeting until I stood there for an uncomfortable minute staring at them then I got a "Ill be with you in just a minute". Another crossed in front of me without an "excuse me", I am in a service... More

We ate here every day we were in Seattle. We tried salmon, haddock, cod, crab, etc. It was all good. Go at lunch though. The prices are way less expensive and the portions are big enough to get through supper with only a small snack. The view can be great if you get in the right seats. The staff is... More

I was underwhelmed. The food was good, but the service was average at best. We had the tuna poke and both had the fish and chips. We ordered the sweet potato fries and when we got our order, there were regular fries on it. We finally flagged down our waitress and told her we had ordered sweet potato fries. She... More

I had a great experience at Elliott's! I ordered the Elliott salad (which was amazing), had some calamari (delicious) and crab cakes (awe-inspiring). I was very pleased with my food. We had a large group so we had to wait a little longer that I would have liked for food to be served, but they still did a Great Job!... More

Given the restaurant's prime waterfront location and volume of customers, I was expecting adequate, but not great, food. I was wrong. The oyster stew was creamy and the oysters large and succulent. The mussels had a wonderfully light broth. The oyster happy hour is a great way to try different types of oysters and pair them with a nice glass... More
