    We’ve been dining at Cutters for over 10 years. It’s a great location, right at the end of Pike Place Market, and offers outstanding views of Elliott Bay, Mt Rainier, the Olympics and Seattle’s waterfront. The service was exceptional last night and our food and wine choices were presented quickly and with care. We did not feel rushed to finish and make the table available for another patron. Cutters is a go to place for date night for us and we will continue to dine with them.

    Service was very bad. Took forever to be greeted, drinks and food orders taken. Chowder was old, thick and dry. Friends fish came out incorrect and underdone. She sent it sack, ordering clams instead. They never came. Server never came back to check on us. We flagged down manager who was no help at all. No resolution. I told him twice that if our server would have come back, we would have ordered another bottle of wine. He said sorry. Didn’t offer to order us a bottle of wine. Missed revenue! Never had the opportunity to order dessert. Just very bad service and lack of management ownership. Would never recommend to anyone.

    The food was good, but not up to the expectations. The crabcake was far more filler than crab, the salmon was overdone, and the entrees took an eternity to be served after the appetizers. The view was spectacular.

    For a Sunday night, it was pretty happening. We had a great server who helped make the evening wonderful. The NE clam chowder is absolutely hands down the best, and the crab/artichoke dip was so amazing with the little pieces of bread. This is a wonderful place, close to the ocean, with great views. Will love to go back!

    This is a great place. Very overpriced for Dungeness crab, especially for Seattle (we live in Las Vegas and get live Dungeness crab cheaper), but the food was excellent, the service oustanding and the view unmatched, so we didn't mind paying more. BUT, the absolute nerve of Landry's creating a 4% tax for it's customers to make up for a cost of living increase it refuses to pay their employees is despicable. I will not eat at a Landry's restaurant again. Shameful and embarrassing for Landry's.

    After telling my server that I didn't prefer sweet cocktails, he suggested a Spicy Prickly Pear Margarita which was super sweet. 2 additional lime wedges didn't help much, although the spice level was enjoyable. I ordered 6 local oysters. The presentation was gorgeous, and the oysters with accompanying sauces were great ....however, 3 minutes after they were served my entree arrived. What to do? Enjoy the appetizer or eat the miso black cod while it's hot? The cod and some of the vegetables were glorious, but the featured bok choy was hammered. The restaurant was only half full, and it was 7:45 pm, so there was no reason to rush diners. After tip, the bill was over $100, and I left feeling cheated.

    Our server (Gabriella) was amazing. She was very accommodating and kind to address our needs. It really made for a positive experience. The food was less than stellar. Very bland overall. It also took over 40 minutes for us to get the food. And we got bread at the tail end of our meal which was also disappointing, - We ordered the clams from the shared section. Sauce was bland - Alaskan Red King Crab Leg was not worth it. I am fairly confident that it was frozen given the soft shell. Very sad that a $110 dish was just boiled. The meat was watery and lacked sweetness. (honestly this is meant to be the show stopper, but it ended up being the reason for the low rating) - Grilled Trio was the saving grace for the restaurant. The salmon was good but the portion of salmon was laughable compared to what we see on the website and other user reviews. The shrimp was delicious and I should have ordered more grilled shrimp (again, felt that the $110 king crab was a waste of my money). Scallops tasted frozen as well. Drinks: solid, no negative comments.

    Great restaurant! I would recommend making a reservation as it’s located right outside of Pike Place Market so it was pretty busy on Saturday night. The food was amazing. We started off with the calamari, then we split the 1lb of Alaskan king crab legs, a filet along with some oysters (they had two different kinds, we got the kumamoto). Everything was fresh and tasted great. Service was great as well! It is pricey but being from Chicago we didn’t mind paying as the food was worth it. Not everyday we can fresh crab that was probably caught close by

    Food beautiful presented, curry muscles were fantastic! Seafood salad just ok, salmon not seasoned at all, overdressed salad. Been years since been here... Service was good. View would have been great if not for all the smoke from wildfires :(( But evening ruined by guy trying to jump off ledge outside our window! Police were called, I hope he got help. All the staff were great, very attentive and kind. Maybe not fair to only give 3 stars as there's lots of things on the menu to try. My friend and I both had the seafood salad. I will go back for those muscles or the crab articoke dip, which is always fantastic~

    Food was amazing, we had a party of 7 and we’re all served at the same time. Servers were friendly and made us feel welcomed. The only downside is that it’s next door to a city park and 3 men relieved themselves next to our window. There was nothing the restaurant and staff could do about it, but the food made up for it.

    In our party of 4, each ordered different entrees, and everyone gushed about how it was the best seafood they've had. Prices were not cheap but reasonable considering the 'on the water' view and prime location. The dining room was quiet and civilized. This is a place where you can have a long leisurely experience and take it easy.
