This is my guilty local pleasure seafood hang. Yes it's a bit spendy but the food is terrific, great people watching down by the Pike Place market, and a wonderful bar. It can be a bit noisy when full - just something to keep in...More

Etta’s was recommended to us by a couple we met on a cruise. Fortunately for us, their opinion was spot on. We started with the calamari, which was easily the best we have ever eaten. Lightly breaded and nicely seasoned, it was great. Then we...More

Just a couple minutes away from the crowds of Pikes Place Market is Etta's. Happy hour has great small plates and specials on beer, wine and drinks. $30 or so and we were both full of excellent food and no longer thirsty. Great spot.

Dinner was tasty and good service. Dinner prices on the high side considering that it was alacarte. Even charged for bread. I don't appreciate the fact that restaurants in Seattle automatically put 20% gratuity into the bill. Plus 10.5% tax made it $60.00 pp. Being...More

We had lunch here. Crab cake sandwich was good but fried...not expecting that. Tried the cornbread pudding which didn’t really have that much taste. It is pricey and they automatically add 20% to your bill. When asked why out of curiosity, our server told us...More

I will tell you why because Trip Advisor is basing their reviews on prior comments. It could be that Etta's is sending in their own reviews that are being posted on this web site. Let me know when this restaurant close, so... More
