Nice Experience

We visited here on the recommendation of our hotel. We were very tired as we had just flown in from the UK and our body clocks were telling us it was 2 in the morning. This place was ideal - the food was good, well prepared and came speedily. The service was really good. The waitress spent time... read more

My goal for our 2 week Pacific Northwest vacation was to eat fish every day. I lived up to the challenge and had great Salmon, Halibut and fish & chips in a variety of cities. Etta's was our final dinner, the last night of our vacation in Seattle, and the Halibut was just incredible. It was presented beautifully and cooked... More

Excellent service. Our server, Jennifer, had outstanding food and wine suggestions. We had Northwestern oysters followed by the seafood stew. Incredible meal.

We knew we had to eat at a Tom Douglas restaurant while in Seattle since they all come so highly recommended. We were not disappointed! We ordered the Dahlia bakery bread with homemade olive tapenade as a side. We all had great entrees. I have to say though, I LOVED the dish I ordered, the handmade herb fettuccini pasta with...

We visited Ettas for the famous crab cakes. They were excellent along with the tartar sauce. It is a must try if you are in the public market.

Etta's was the recommendation of the front desk staff at our downtown hotel. We were not disappointed. All the dinners for our stay in Seattle were intended to take advantage of the NW seafood availability and so Etta's fit right in. I had the Northwest Seafood Stew. I admit at first that I was somewhat skeptical of a stew that... More

We were visiting the marketplace and wanted to eat. We asked a guy at a store for the name of a good restaurant. He told us to go to Etta's. We found it and went in and could see quickly that it was a very classy place to eat. The food was great and the service was fantastic. Our waitress... More

Great location, excellent food and really nice staff. I ordered the shrimp, fries and cole slaw. When they brought it out the waitress said this is the best cole slaw you will ever eat. I laughed and then tried it. She was right it was awesome. My husband had the fish and his was excellent too.
