    Not the restaurant we remember from our time as residents of the Seattle area. Food was very mediocre and over priced. Waiter staff was un-engaged and needed to be asked for refills. I don’t think I will return.

    We got there an hour early on purpose and sat at the bar. We wanted to get a table by the window for the views. The person at front said that he would try but its very difficult. The bartender was very arrogant and was getting involved in all of our conversations. He is a detriment to the business. Others at bar were mentioning the same thing. When we were seated, of course we did not get the table we requested. There were 2 tables open where we requested and they said no. We asked to wait until another table in front of us as they were having desert and he said no. We sat at our table and did not have anyone sit in the open tables at all while we were there. The food was good and a bit pricy but still good. Very sad they would not accommodate us with the table request.

    Well located restaurant. Menu and wine list prices were realistic. Service was attentive (especially with regards an allergy of one in the party). Highly recommended. Note for European readers: the fried calamari would feed three or four easily.

    We love Cutters! We’ve dined here a few times and each time has been wonderful. This past experience truly stood out to us. The restaurant was extremely busy and the entire staff was working overtime to make it a great experience. The Manager was even lending a helping hand and took care of our entire order. You could really see the passion he had to ensure everyone was having the best time. It made the night that much more enjoyable. If you love seafood and an unbelievable view then this is the place for you! Just make sure you book a reservation 😊

    Worst experience. Since arrival of bad face of hosts. It took more than 10 minutes to assign a table. We waited for a long time for food and drinks arrive after finished meals. A shame: charged extra by bay view! Never go that place!

    The food was nothing special. Our table was EXTREMELY uncomfortable with a pole right where your legs should go. Finally we sat towards the back and the railing and planters were filthy. Looks like it was never dusted.

    Food was not great - don't recommend. King salmon was 8 minutes later to the table than the other meals. It was dry and bland. Fish and chips was mostly breading, could barely see the fish. Will not come back and do not recommend you do either.

    Food was pretty bad, definitely not worth the price. They hammered my medium salmon, turned it into dog food. The scallops were gritty and the shrimp just this side of salvageable. Waiter was so overwhelmed by his section he didn’t have time for my table. Went 45 minutes without water service. There are better places a stones throw away

    Ambiance and service was great, but food for the price was subpar. Lacked seasoning and sauce was used sparingly, which left the risotto cakes dry. Halibut was cooked well, but could have been seasoned better.
