We really WANTED to love this place, because we love the Dahlia Lounge, but this was in a lesser league entirely. Located near the Market, the restaurant has a dining area crowded around a bar. While not noisy or obnoxious, the bar

Came to Seattle for my wifes birthday. My son fly in from Nebraska. We wanted fresh seafood. Made reservations for lunch (3pm), but didn't need then. First sign, the place was fairly empty. We were disappointed at the small lunch menu.

My husband and I visited this place on one of our first dates, and the food was just terrible. His black bean soup looked slightly like vomit, and the spring rolls were not tasty at all. Although we were alcohol free that night, it did look like they had a great wine list.

I'm obsessed with Tom Douglas' restaurants. We frequent Lola's and Dahlia Lounge quite often! Considering how brilliant his other restaurants are I was anxious to try his Seafood restaurant. For my husband's birthday I made reservations

A nice place for a meal with good food and friends. Etta's is comfortable, with an upscale menu of interesting items. It is especially fun for the adults in the family to go, especially after a day of shopping downtown and on the waterfront. Not sure I would take the smaller children here. Parking close can be an issue.

Although the atmosphere seemed a little dated the service and food at Etta's was quite good. Our server was knowledgeable about the menu and helped guide us through a satisfying meal. The crab cocktail was so fresh and not overpowered with it's sauce, the pasta with squash and pepitas was cooked perfectly and tasted just as good reheated for lunch the next day. We didn't have room for the triple coconut cream pie, but we've had it before and it's delicious.

Etta's is run-down at the heels like an old slipper. It's relies on location at the foot of Pike Market. It cooks seafood at a mediocre level and serves a limited seafood menu. The Crab Cakes are the one exception and they are terrific.
