Food was okay, nothing really to complain about until you compare it with other restaurants we have visited. We have had cheaper better meals elsewhere. Over priced and service lacked any real attention, pudding was warm, coffee is half a cup tasty but warm, no...More

We had a great meal overlooking the bay. Our server was helpful explaining all options. Soup, bread, crab, chowder and drinks were just right. We ate our lunch late or dinner early (ate on Michigan time) and were left for a leisurely time. So many...More

Dined at Cutter's Crabhouse while visiting Seattle with friends. Waited an hour to get in, but we walked on the neighbourhood and they texted me when the table was ready which is a great way to do that. Service was prompt and friendly. Tried the...More

We sought out this restaurant after a pleasant experience three years ago. We were not disappointed this time. Enjoyed our fish dishes in a lovely setting with a view of the water. The menu and wine list were not extensive, but sufficient selection for seafood...More

Perfect place to watch the sunset over the Puget Sound. Great bar with friendly service. Wait staff was great, attentive and knowledgeable. Had steamed clams - broth was awesome, and scallops that were quite tasty as well.

I'm not going to give one of those super detailed reviews. We had the calamari starter and we each had a different poke'. Food was exceptionally good. Service was exceptionally good. Ambience was very fine, including a great view. In short, we loved it. Also,...More

We went there at the recommendation of our hotel concierge. He said all of the area restaurants were expensive. Cutters is noted for oysters and have a few dishes around oysters. After we were seated, ordered drinks and were served drinks we asked about the...More

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."
