If you go to Etta's you must try their oysters if you like oysters. They had a fantastic selection and it was so fresh! I would also recommend their crab salad- the salad dressing is fresh and refreshing.

Ate here for lunch and dinner during our stay. Very good food. Shimp rolls for lunch and crab cakes and fish stew for dinner. Friendly attentive service. Nice atmosphere.

Went for lunch after shopping at Pikes Market. Best Sockeye Salmon I've ever had. Portions are light, good for lunch, very tasty and seasoned. Had a great view of the water and park, and got a treat on the Sunday afternoon we were there we had a clan of NUDE cyclist ride past the restaurant.

There is nothing much to say about this place everything is just pretty much average. I had been told it was good but we were disappointed, hard to define what exactly, maybe it was because we had eaten at some great restaurants in Seattle and this one did not live up to the others.

Started with the calamari appetizer, it was real good, the micro shaved jalapeños added the perfect pop. I had the house specialty, rubbed salmon with a cornbread pudding. The cornbread was good, the salmon overcooked and dry and kind of boring. The albacor tuna was okay. It was bland and like the salmon lacked flavour. Pretty average.

I seem to end up at Etta's at some point on every trip to Seattle. And that's a good thing, since Etta's consistently delivers high-quality dishes (particularly seafood of course) in a comfy-casual setting. Whether it's burgers, oysters or salmon, it's always good. Good wines at reasonable prices. Knowledgeable and friendly service. Copper River salmon with cornbread pudding was exceptionally... More

Likes: Steamed crab is cooked to perfection. French fries are out this world. Dislikes: salted caramel ice-cream is tasteless. Overwhelming service

Excellent salmon and the best seafood stew I have ever eaten. The curry in the stew was better than the Indian restaurant at which we ate the night before.

We sampled Etta's on a tasting your with Savor Seattle and decided to come back for dinner that same night. The food was absolutely delicious and while it is a little pricy the quality is very good.
