A very good place to eat

We went to Etta's to enjoy some seafood. I had the halibut and my wife had some scallops. Both portions were on the small side even though the food was good, it is not a good value. Also the place was loud and the waiter forgot one of our side dishes.

Right next to Pike's Street Market, this accessible restaurant offers a variety of food, especially the alder-wood smoked salmon. A must. Dinner there is good. Lunch is a madhouse with all the tourists who are relaxing after the market experience. We had 2 excellent dinners there, and a no-so-good lunch experience. We will return for that great salmon.

My family ended up at Etta's quite by accident, but what a happy accident! Be prepared - the prices are high and it isn't a place I would choose to bring the little ones, although plenty of folks there did. The food, however, goes far beyond amazing. The service was excellent, even in a crowded lunch rush (a cruise ship... More

On our recent visit to Seattle, Etta's was on my list to not miss. We dropped in for lunch. I ordered the Rubbed Salmon, and it had an excellent flavor. What a great lunch! We were disappointed that we were too full for dessert. Our server told us the Coconut Cream Pie was not to miss. I must have really... More

I first visited Etta's on a 2006 trip to Seattle. While at Pike's Place Market, we chose Etta's simply because we were walking by and needed a dinner. The meal was memorable - fresh, delicious halibut for me and fabulous salmon for my companion. We have remembered that meal over the ensuing years and last week had an opportunity to... More

Upon our arrival to the beautiful city of Seattle, we headed out for one of the places that my hubby had researched. Etta's was very good and loved the drinks and appetizers we had at brunch time. Everything was great and interesting. We tried sme small plates and different cocktails. All of it was very good!! Great location and good... More

Etta's is part of the Tom Douglas family and just a stone's throw from the north side of Pikes Place Market. It is pretty and we really liked the classic menu: crab cake, fish fry, salmon. Crab cakes were delicious and we had a side of corn pudding and green beans. They are committed to local and seasonal ingredients. Service... More

Two of the best meals of our trip! Delicious Alaskan sockeye salmon with their famous rub! Best salmon we have had yet. Homemade pasta with local vegetables and Dungennes crab was delicious! Very good meals highly recommend!

This restaurant next to Pike's Market had an inviting appearance and a short line. Once seated inside it took over an hour to get our food and only our stomach's growling was quenched. They appeared to be severely understaffed and the food merely pedestrian. I'm sure that there are other choices in the area - check them out.
