Stopped here for lunch. Ordered fish chowder and half a turkey sandwich. The soup was watery with no fish. Sandwich had one small piece of turkey on it and the bread was enormous. Just all bread. One small slice of turkey.

Breakfast on a sleepy Saturday morning with fog on the harbor was quite peaceful. Food was a good value and service was great. You order at the counter, and they bring it out. Good service and food... recommended for a casual visit.

My husband and I both agree that we had the best breakfasts ever here! I had the eggs Benedict with salmon and he had the crab cake frittata. The hollandaise sauce, salmon, and eggs for my Benedict were all fresh and expertly prepared. Even the home fries, made with red potatoes, were great. Coupled with the great views, this little...

don't go here alone esp if you are a woman. I saw other folks waited on who came in after me and if I wasn't so hungry I would have left. the food was good but being overlooked for so long didn't help the digestion. it was that way through the meal.

The views were spectacular! the service was good. The Clam chowder filling and tasty....a little too much bay leave but ....really good. Bread bowl was fresh. The Salmon was fresh and delicious. Overall prices were very reasonable. I would go here again.

The clam chowder was really good; don't get me wrong. It was very good but what made this lunch really wonderful was the view from our seats. The sound was out there; we could watch the ferries coming and going, the ferris wheel turning and the mountains of the Olympic Peninsula in the background. Prices were very reasonable and the...

My 6 yr old daughter wanted kids pancake with whip cream and fresh fruit but it was 1:00pm. The server persuaded the cook to make the pancake plate and made my daughter's Day!! Awesome service! Great food! Loved the experience... Will be back... More

The food here is what one would expect in a Pike's Place Market restaurant. Fish, burgers, chowder, etc and they're all fairly well done. The real gem here is their view. The restaurant is aptly named and with a stop for that alone.

We stopped at the Sound View cafe for breakfast during our vacation to Seattle. The food was very good and priced very reasonably. It is a casual place and you place your order at the front counter and they bring it out to your table when it is ready. They have many tables that overlook Elliot Bay and have great... More

After wandering the Pike Market for a restaurant offering seafood in the mid-afternoon, we found the Sound View Cafe. Other restaurants had very limited menus after 2:00pm. The SV Cafe was a seat-yourself place with great views of the sound. You order at the counter and they serve the meal at your table. We ordered the appetizer crab cakes and... More
