Food was very good and quick service. They were out of yogurt which is silly as the yogurt place is one block away...

During a day trip to Seattle, we wanted to have a sit-down lunch near Pike's Place market. This restaurant is a short walk from there. We had fish and chips and the fried shrimp. The fried shrimp pieces were big and delicious. The menu was limited and pricey, but this is pretty much expected for this tourist area. We didn't... More

I was a little disappointed to not have more choice on the menu, especially after eliminating the fried food. The salmon I settled on was average but served with a very nice bread pudding and Brussels sprouts. My companions had the seafood soup in a coconut broth, which was very tasty with lots of shellfish. Entrees are not served with... More

Always have to go to a Tom Douglas restaurant in Seattle, and hadn't tried Etta's yet. Great dinner, the seafood curry soup was amazing and, being from Alaska, we can be very hard to please where seafood is concerned. Super friendly/helpful server, great winelist, but boyfriend was disappointed with beer list - not a ton of variety. Romantic, dim atmosphere.

I went to the restaurant on my birthday. The waitress was very attentive and helpful with the menu. The food was delicious and the wine was superb. I received a coconut cream pie as a complimentary birthday treat and it was delectable. Worth the visit!

We were impressed by this artistically attractive restaurant when we entered Etta's. I chose the delicious fried calamari, which was adorned with dried seaweed slivers as an appetizer. My entree was the fish fry combo with shrimp, oysters and cod . My beverage was roibos tea Accompanied with a tasty slaw and well-cooked skinny fries, this meal hit the spot!... More

Delicious butternut squash soup and salad with fresh crab. Crab cakes were tasty and fresh as well. The decor was attractive and staff attentive. The whole menu looks wonderful.

Upon our arrival in Seattle, my husband and I wanted fresh seafood. After much walking - and searching without reservations - we found Etta's. The lovely hostess was so accommodating and seated us next to the window. It was about 7:00 pm on a Tuesday evening and Seattle was bustling - as was this restaurant. We were immediately greeted by... More
