I'm not a fish person but the pesto salmon sliders where really good. They were half off during happy hour.

My boyfriend & I stayed in the city for the weekend & we wanted to do a romantic date night. We have always heard about Elliot's Oyster House from friends & family so we finally made reservations! If you want to experience amazing seafood the Pacific Northwest is known for, this is the place. Wonderful selection of wine, the oysters... More

We were very excited to try this waterfront restaurant. I ordered the grilled king salmon (served on a bed of cubed roasted potatoes and grilled asparagus). My husband ordered the scalllop risotto. The salmon was nice, but nothing special and was cold, as were the vegetables which were also soggy and extremely salty. The scallops were tasty but slightly undercooked.... More

My husband wanted to try oysters. I told him the best place to try is where they're used to serving oysters. It was a nice place. It was probably fancier than how we were dressed, but they didn't kick us out. The waitstaff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Our meals were very tasty.

Had a great time with my brother sitting by the bar. Oysters were fresh, the salmon was delicious and the king crab was amazing. Cool atmosphere and really friendly service.

The food here is amazing, especially the oysters. The clam chowder was also delicious. It is hard to choose just one entree. You will want to try everything.

Was a bit nervous because a walk by of the restaurant in the afternoon made the place look like a bar in front with a summer deck on the side. Not the fine dining. Glad we went ahead with our plans. The Oyster house in further back behind the front pub and along side what must be a lively deck... More

Had a great dinner at Elliott's . Great variety of oysters to choose from & the servers are knowledgeable on them too. Great crab cakes there too. Would recommend the Dungeness crabs. Have a visit & you would not be disappointed.

Elliot's is one of Seattle's go to spots for oysters. The food is always great and right on the water. I often bring business associates here and I've never had a complaint. If you can, get here early for their progressive Oyster Happy Hour. 3-4 pm, $1.50, 4-5 pm, $2.50 and 5-6 pm, $3.50. Can't go wrong with those prices!... More

This was not the best Oyster experience I had. We asked our waiter to select our Oysters based upon what we liked and frankly the first platter was very disappointing. Not to mention, rather than give us one each, he gave us two each so if we didn't like one of the Oysters there was a second one. I've never... More
