“Beautiful restaurant and wonderful food!”
Reviewed October 19, 2012 via mobile

If you are looking for a nice dinner with a beautiful view in Seattle this is the place to go! The service was outstanding and so was the food. I went here for dinner during Seattle Restaurant Week. I had a 3 course dinner for 28 dollars (which was an awesome deal!). For an appetizer I had ceviche, my main entree was salmon - a very large portion! - and for dessert I had delicious key lime pie. Everything was delicious!! Can't wait to go back here to try something else!

“Great place”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Had dinner here with 3 other colleagues and it was fantastic. The cioppino was rich and flavorful and loaded with seafood. The rest of the group had the king salmon special and enjoyed it very much. The raspberry ice cream was delicious. Service was prompt and attentive. Price was reasonable.

“Worth it for the view!”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

There are a lot of places in Seattle to get really good seafood. None of the others offers the unique view that Chandler's provides. Don't get me wrong, the food was very good. It's the view that will keep me coming back, though.

“Great food, great view”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

This time the size of the Dungeoness crabs made it worth the money. This place is pricey but the service and views are worth the experience. The steamed version with lemon and butter is off the chain. The garlic roasted version is good if you love and I mean LOVE garlic. It's fun, messy, and delicious. If you read the wine list carefully or ask your server for a selection at your price point, you can do pretty well. Not a place to go to every day, unless you love crab and have deep pockets ;-)

“Great Water Front Location”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

We sat outside enjoying the view of the yachts and float planes approaching just over the roof. The seared tuna was very good, but not great. The seafood stew was quite good. The prices were fair to a bit high. It would be a great place for lunch on a warm sunny day.
