Pike Place Market
0.7 miles from Space Needle
Improve this listing
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."

We were lucky to get into Cutters and really enjoyed our experience. The seafood linguini was very good with perfectly cooked pasta and a nice serving of fresh seafood. The key lime pie was tangy and a perfect way to finish our meal. The staff...was very friendly and the view is beautiful. Would definitely eat here again.More

Service was great, food was good, but the prices? Insane! I paid $40 for snow crab legs. I got 4 legs. 4! I get better prices in PA. Not worth the cost at all.

It has been 5-6 years since I’ve visited Cutters. It used to be one of my regular stops. I was out with a friend & insisted we stop in for a drink & quick bite. Upon entry the stale fishy smell in the air was...an immediate turnoff. Additionally the layout had changed drastically since my last visit. It now looks like an outdated old cafeteria with drab colors. Even with the uninviting smell & lack of ambiance I insisted to my friend we should still give it a try. We ordered drinks from the uninterested staff, which were marginal at best. We both decided to cut our losses, paid our bill & left. What happened to the wonderful, inviting fun place I used to love? Sadly I don’t think I’ll ever return, nor can I continue to recommend.More

Cutter's is located right by Pike Place Market in an area with too many seafood restaurants to count and in my experience it is the worst of all of them. It's overpriced, the service isn't great, and the food leaves a lot to be desired...for a city famous for its SeafoodMore

We happened upon this restaurant when walking around Pike Place. Walked in; no reservations and they sounded apologetic that without a reservation that we'd "have to" sit in the table section by the bar. I tell you what - those large windows - it was...no hardship! Great people watching and sea behind. The food was directed by our waitress and she was helpful and spot on. Just a lovely unplanned find!More

On the waterfront of Seattle near the Pike Market with views of the boats going by. Andrea had the Manila clam appetizer and I had the calamari. We shared their jambalaya as the main course. They put our shared entree on 2 plates which was...thoughtful of them. For dessert, we shared their key lime pie. It was on a par with key lime pie I have had in Key West. In all a good dining experience. They also are members of the Landry group so if you are, mention your membership # and you will get points or can use accumulated points here.More

Cutters was the closest restaurant to my hotel on my landry's salect club app and I decided to give it a try since it looked like a pretty nice seafood restaurant. My server was a class act and was pretty attentive throughout my dinner -...I could not have asked for a better server. The clams appetizer and fresh catch salmon were off the hook! My server told me that their fresh catch salmon is from Alaska so I had to order it and it did not disappoint! The oysters, not so much - I've had fresher for a similar price point. The rose was pretty decent and I was pleasantly surprised by their syrah! (not pictured here) It exceeded my expectations for a $10 glass of red. Unfortunately, the bartender on duty did not know how to make an old fashioned and mixed in way too much bitters - this kinda ruined my overall dining experience. Overall, I would be willing to give this place a try again next time I am in Seattle.More

It was tough getting a reservation and I’m glad we were able to snag one. We had a beautiful table right on the bed and enjoyed watching the fairies come in and out. The menu was fabulous lots of delicious seafood. We started by sharing...the calamari with tartar sauce and bloody Mary cocktail sauce, it was delicious. The manila clams who is sweet and fresh. We shared jambalaya, It was really delicious and I appreciated the fact that we received two bowls and our food was beautifully divided. For dessert we shared a Keylime pie which was sweet, tart and delicious. Our waiter and surfers were on point. Ambience was lovely and dinner was delicious. We did not realize that Cutter’s is part of the Landrys group, we are members. I appreciate the updating and now we have the app - thank you!More

I've eaten here before. It was pretty good. Today's clam chowder was quite bland. Had a whole bay leaf in it. Not a good thing. The server lady was nice enough, I guess. I asked her for lemon. She brought two thin lemon slices intended...for use with bar drinks. I just spoke with her. Thankfully she is taking the chowder off my bill. Try this place at happy hour, or any time -- at your own risk. Thanks.More

This place is horrible . Ordered two chowders and they were less than half filled and clam less ! Fish and chips were worse than Skippers fast food . Cold soggy fries. Tiny portions of fish. Think Van de Kamp. Frozen food at your local...IGA . $64 . Stay away. Dead serious . This place pretends it is fine dining. Get ready for low end fast food . Garbage . Even talked to the manager , Chris, who never did anything to fixMore
