Not just another Seattle Seafood restaurant

Etta's did it again. Not only did they give us a window booth, they served up an excellent meal to my wife and I. My wife described the Dungeness Crab as perfect - without odor, just light and fresh crab meat as fresh as can be. My spot prawns were equally remarkable. We returned three days... read more

Food, staff and atmosphere is excellent! Parking is a bit hard to get in this area, would recommend parking in one of the lots north of location.

We had a splurge family dinner at Etta's, based on both TA reviews and local suggestions. I kind of regret it. The menu is quite limited (especially in seafood variety!), and the food hit or miss. The rubbed salmon was good, as was the clam chowder and ahi tuna. The crab cake was overdone - dry and flavorless. Our waiter... More

Wow. Had the best Marguerita - a jalapeno Marguerita! The Halibut - savoured every mouthful as it was so delicious. My friend had a couple of Oysters to start and she loved them. Our server, Michael, was very knowledgeable and courteous and we took his recommendations for each dish we chose. - so glad we did. Also...get ready to share... More

I can't believe this restaurant has been around forever and I've never gone! The food is phenomenal (duh - it's a Tom Douglas restaurant) and we can't wait to go back. The pasta dish is to die for and the steak entree is so full of wonderful flavor. The sauce that goes w/the steak is a great compliment - but... More

A nice dinner spot. Family friendly, good service, and tasty food. The sefood stew was a hit as was the wonderful selection of oysters and the clam chowder.

Etta's Seafood has fabulous food and you are not rushed. The service was a little slow, but the food was great. It is walking distance to the water. My only complaint is they have a brunch menu on the weekends and calamari is not on it. Also, the brunch menu is not online. The fish and chips portion is small,... More

We ate here on a recent trip to Seattle. Very good service. Outside dining available. Portion size is very good. For two of us we split the calamari appetizer and a fish & chips. Plenty of food!

From the moment we walked in, it was 5 star all the way. Andrea was our waitress but everyone contributed to the entire guest experience. The jalapeno margaritas were superb; the oysters, 4 varieties that we tried were fabulous and the best of everything, the crab salad, was delicious beyond belief! I will definitely be back to try everything else!

Visited this restaurant with family while we were visiting Seattle. Unique menu, great seafood, and interesting wine list. I had the Dungeness crap, and although a lot of work to get to the meat, it was well worth it.
