We ordered the crab feast and the trout special. The trout was very good and seasoned well. The crab feast was just way over salted; king, snow and dungeness all way too salty as well as the risotto. Very disappointing.

When you pay big bucks for a dinner you should get big buck service. You can see they try but they come up short. On top of that they charge you a living wage Fee of just under 4%! Not cool in my book. Usually...More

We had a difficult time deciding what to choose for our entrees. There were many that appealed to me. In the end, I chose Alaskan king crab legs, which came with a tasty risotto. My husband had fettuccini with salmon. Both of us were happy...More

Went here for late lunch and everyone was extremely friendly from the hostess to the several servers unattended to us. The food was simply delicious. Scallops, crab cake and ahi poke; fresh, well prepared with wonderful vegetables.

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."
