Good seafood

Ate lunch at Etta's and really enjoyed it. My husband like the sauce for the seafood so much he even ate it after the seafood was gone.

My clam chowder was delicious as was my son's special oysters. The Alaskan cod fish and chips was probably one of the three best I ever had. The wife agreed. My son's seafood stew was loaded with mussels and good taste. The love rubbed salmon was also spectacular. Reasonably priced, laid back, and great service . A great time. Go... More

We spent a few days in the Seattle area, and hoped to knock off a few of the recommended sea food spots. We arrived at Etta's on a relatively busy Friday evening. We had drinks, salads and fish entrees. Salmon and Halibut was ordered, and the Salmon was cooked to Medium, as per the chef's recommendation. Both fish meals were... More

I suppose that I may have been swayed by the absolutely PERFECT spring weather in Seattle, but our experience at Etta's would have been rated

This dinner did not live up to all of the hype we had heard. Our waiter seemed distracted and had to be reminded several times to bring things we had asked for, like drinks. When we did order, he returned to tell us that they only had one serving of halibut left and since two of our party ordered this,... More

The ingredients are top notch, thservice great. The wine list was small, yet thoughtfully curated. The problem: during a busy lunch service- everything was overcooked. What is the sense of having farm fresh produce when it is a soggy mess? Ditto the first of the season halibut overcooked to leather? I love the place, but there is no excuse for... More

Visited Etta's Wed. Night for dinner. Had mussels and chowder for appetizers, fried seafood and mushroom pasta for entrees, coconut cream pie and carrot cake for dessert. Staff was friendly. Service was slow. No bread was offered. Chowder was bland. Entrees were good. Pie was delicious. Carrot cake was actually a muffin with icing on the side; way to light... More

Wonderful ambiance..helpful with our two grandchildren. Excellent menu..salmon was the freshest I've ever tasted. The entire staff was professional and seemingly went out of their way to ensure that the guests were pleased. Would highly recommend and will be back when I visit Seattle again!!!😊

Crab cakes to die for, everything was so fresh and delicious. Seattle Pike Place Market is a fun day trip and making room for Etta's should definitely be on your menu. Fried seafood plate really good, but my 10 year old did not appreciate the oysters!

I was in Seattle for a meeting and someone local suggested I check out Etta's. I took a spot at the bar to wait for friend's to join me & ended up staying there all night. Morgan was the bar tender and it made the experience fun. He had great suggestions on our wine & food - which was all... More
