The seafood sadly did not live up to the hype. My crab legs were not the freshest, and our server was not familiar with the dessert menu and could not tell us what the chocolate dessert was for the evening. This was a fair meal but not the experience we were expecting, especially at these prices. I've had better crab... More

After visiting Pikes Peak Market I found Cutters Crabhouse. Cutters overlooks Puget Sound. The action at that time took place at the bar, but I preferred to sit in the dining room looking at the action on the sound! Very diverse menu - great location for romantic dinners, family or business dining or a great place for the lone traveler... More

I've been to Cutters a few times and it never disappoints. The service is fantastic. The food is deliciously prepared and presented. The cocktails are divine. I had their Lavender Cosmo and it was terrific. Be sure to ask for a table with a view.

We had an early reservation on Monday evening. The dining room was mostly empty except for the coveted window seats. We were guided to the only window seating with a big concrete block in the view. The view is one thing that sets this restaurant location apart from others near the famous Pike Market. So I asked to be seated... More

Ate at 5 seafood restaurants during my trip to Seattle. And Cutters was the most disappointing. Service was great, and had a beautiful table by the window, but those are the only positives. My daughter had salmon that was supposed to be cooked to "medium", but was raw, and had to be sent back, and had an overpowering taste of... More

I was so looking forward to the seafood mac n cheese. For the $35 price I was expecting amazing and sadly it was hardly just okay. It had no cheese sauce. Just lumps of sporadic melted cheese. The macaroni were floating in butter. There was no lobster to be seen and just a few pieces (3-4) of crab. No other... More

One of the fish vendors in the Pike Place Market recommended this restaurant to us. We were seated near the window where we could take in the beautiful view of the bay. We ordered a Crab Louis and a large order of crab legs...both were very good. The server was attentive, but not overbearing...allowing my wife and I to space... More

I went here with a group of friends on a rainy weekday evening. It's very close to Pike Place. The restaurant was 2/3 empty but felt active enough. The hostess and waiter/server were friendly and gracious, and the waiter was attentive during the meal, without being overly friendly. The menu is, naturally, heavily weighted toward seafood, and at our table... 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."
