they brought out our food very quickly. Mashed potatos were cold, butter was rock hard, bread wasn't fresh and soft, served crab with no lemon. wouldn't go again.

My family and I had lunch at Pescatores before boarding the Clipper back to Seattle. The location by the waterfron is very convenient. The decor was very tasteful and the lunch menu had the standard Northwestern fish-based options. I suspect that this the dinner menu might be a bit stronger and a better choice.

First trip back for about 5 years, and the room, service and dedication to fresh seafood remain excellent. Prices also remain high and that's what this place is, a high end seafood place next to the Empress and the Inner Harbour. Raw oysters for me were excellent, Cioppino average and not recommended. Crab cakes, crab salad, and seafood pasta got high ratings, risottos not so. A great occasional seafood splurge in a very nice setting, but there are some better ones out there should you choose to search.

Recommended by desk host as well as trip advisor. We wanted fresh seafood and we got it!! My husband had the fix price menu and was satisfied with the price and the food. They have a list that shows all the fish that is fresh. They had halibut but no entree including it. Our waiter (Matt) was kind enough to check with the chef and I received a cook to order halibut dinner. We are not big oyster fans but I am sure it you like them this is the place. Very warm atomosphere and Matt our waiter was outstanding. Knowledgable, caring and a great asset to the establishment. We will come back. Thanks Matt for helping to make our 30th anniversary one to remember!!
