Description: 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."

“Fresh seafood with terrific views!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Went to Cutters on Valentine's Day with a business associate, was crowded of course, and so we sat at bar for dinner....the service was excellent and fresh fish was very good- although the menu was limited (they said because it was Valentine's day)....the place has large windows with views of the water all around- also pretty at night with the lights of the marketplace and ferris-wheel...salads were excellent as was dessert, also good drinks...lots of couples there that night...appears to be a popular spot- this restaurant is also called Cutters Crabhouse ( it seems they changed the name)....location is right at the end of Pike's market....

“Good Food, Indifferent Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

We were greeted by a wonderful Manager ( shorter lady with blonde hair) who took us to possibly the best table in the house. The food was good but our actual server seemed off. We felt like we had become a burden, we were intending on having dessert but were not even given the option, our bill was brought to us before we had even finished our meals. This would have been fine if it was super busy, but it was not busy, and we heard her ask the table behind us if they wanted dessert.

“Food and Staff "Wonderful"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

We have never been to a restaurant that was more accommodating to please their customers than Cutters. The restaurant is just a few blocks from Pike Place and has an equally amazing view.
The staff were outstanding. The happy hour appies were a delight.
We would definitely return.

“Excellent meal start to finish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Outstanding crab. Served in very nice portions. Fantastic setting on the water -- get a window table overlooking the water. Crab stuffed shrimp scampi was well prepared, but lobster and crab gnocchi was amazing. Very nicely done desserts. Perfect service. Will definitely return.
