I had eaten her before so invited a friend who had not. It was really bad. Very little fish on the brunch menu and the extremely expressive salmon I had was quite overlooked. The salmon I had at a local hotel banquet was actually much better. I went elsewhere the next day and had a great meal but I will... More

We are visiting from out of town and my husband's goal was to have seafood for every meal while we are in Seattle. This was a great choice for our first meal here. We snagged a reservation and are very glad we did. This place is busy. We were greeted and seated right away. The space is cozy, casual, comfort.... More

My family and I all ordered something different, so we could taste each others plates. None of us were disappointed. We were in seafood heaven. I ordered a Thai seafood soup dish that was so fresh, tasty and to die for. Ill definitely come back!

Our hotel concierge recommended with restaurant near the Pike Street Market area since it was in walking distance from our hotel. I was in search of the best crab cake and this eatery did not disappoint me one bit. In fact two years after my first visit, I returned to Seattle earlier this month and had to return to get...

This place is boutique and despite the cost I felt the food was well worth the price and the quiet atmosphere. I enjoyed the crab cakes and my wife thought the French toast was good as well. The banana nut bread though OMG!!!! Will definitely come back next time I'm in Seattle.

This small but very comfortable seafood restaurant is well-worth a stop especially if you are touring the Pike's Place Market area, including the original Starbucks and the market itself, which sadly has seen the fish stalls replaced slowly but inexorably by less attractive "trinklet" shops. As the name implies, this place is excellent for seafood, crab, mussels and the like.... More

Typically if you see a place that is busy and there is a line up for lunch, you assume should be OK. Right? Well, unfortunately in Seattle in particular, it does not mean anything! I was warned of this fact by many locals-BTW. And still, made that mistake. Luckily, I only ordered their clam chowder only - to start, and... More
