dulcimeria replied to sugcarol's topic in West Coast DeparturesI'm surprised that no one has mentioned "Earth and Ocean" which is in the W hotel. I've not eaten there, but I'm sure my husband (Kamala, a few posts above) can attest to its greatness. I have really been disappointed in Salty's food. We've been there when it's busy and when it's not, and had a bad meal and bad service both times. Fool me once... I can't believe no one has recommended Elliot's Oyster House. It's easily my favorite restaurant in Seattle. While it's not particularly close to the Fairmont (I think it's still less than a mile away, however) it'd be worth a cab ride if you're not a walker. The food there is absolutely amazing, and no matter how many times I've been I've never been disappointed.
