One of Seattle’s proudest traditions is the Pike Place Market, right next door. The market thrives by providing the highest quality seasonal products indigenous to the Pacific Northwest. This allows Cutters--totally remodeled in April 2012--to be directly influenced by the unique nature of the market. Because of Cutters' ongoing commitment to incorporate only the finest seasonal Northwest ingredients in all menu offerings, we can truly say: “If it’s there, it’s here."

Great view!

Had family style food at a wedding rehearsal dinner. The food was excellent, the view was great, and the service was fantastic. Would recommend stopping by and enjoying the food and view. The house salad was great!

Wonderful business dinner with a group of 8. Attentive service and beautiful location. I had the featured rose wine, halibut and organic greens salad. All were exceptional.

Cutters has held center stage at the waterfront for many years. Longevity alone speaks for itself. Haven't been there for a good many years, but on a sunny day, as the sunsets, it's a Seattle "catch of the day". Enjoyed their wine list and gnocchi with crab and lobster, although on a hot day a heavy selection, nonetheless delicious. The... More

So good! Fantastic crab, wonderful sevice and you cant beat ghe view. A perfect "date night" kind of place. Not a single complaint. They managed their walk up wait times well, our waiter was cheerful and attentive, and every bite of crab was delightful.

I had heard great things about Cutters and decided to go for dinner when we were on vacation in Seattle. So disappointed. My fresh fish entrée was awful. Dry,no flavor. The sauce was non existent. My vegetables were dry and burnt. The oysters were good but not chilled enough. My son's steak was good but the rest of the dish... More

Great food, great wait staff, and comfortable environment! Great views of the sound (water), just tell them ahead of time you want your table on that side of the restaurant.

The service and views were fantastic. The food was ok and both my husband and I thought overpriced for just ok food. I would try somewhere new before going back here for dinner

Cutter's just past the north end of the Pike Place Market. It has a wonderful view of Elliott Bay. While it has a varied menu, seafood would be it's primary focus. The food is very good, as is the service. We have been there three times, and been very pleased. It is not the best seafood restaurant in Seattle, but... More

My nephew got married and the groom side of the family went here for some local seafood within walking distance from Pikes Place Market. There were 8 of us and they sat us on the window looking at the Puget Sound. The server was on of the best I have seen in a long time. The food was EXACTLY what... More
