  • Felicity JThe staff can be a bit short but they run a tight ship in a small space so I forgave them. Food as always is excellent 👌

  • Jade R.Wonderful oysters, good service, very trendy. Would go back!

    55555 by Jade R.


  • Aanchal APathetic overhyped place...simply can't fathom how this is considered to be in the same league as Ray's and Elliot's

    55555 by Daniel S


  • JessecaSo happy hour is 50% 4-5 then 25% 5-6 PM -- which we didn't realize. Either way, be prepared to spend $$$ and yet, have no regrets. Fresh oysters, simple seafood small plates and yes, get the bread.

    55555 by Jesseca


  • Denise KThis place is just great and delicious. Happy hour time gets really busy. Amazing staff.

    55555 by Denise K


  • Seijung JI see why people line up before it even opens! The oysters, grilled sardines, steak tartare, scallop curry were all exceptional - the chive crepes not so much. Best Moscow Mule ever.

  • CNTravelerExperiencing Renee Erickson's menu is like reliving her life as it relates to the food of the Northwest. The menu changes daily, but a big plate of regional oysters is a must.” - Ford Fry

    55555 by CNTraveler

  • Sierra JThe oysters are amazing and there is always a variety to chose from.

    55555 by Sierra J


  • Elena N.The place is clearly overrated. When Bourdain goes there, he doesn't wait 2.5 hour for the table(!); as well as he never mentions oysters being ridiculously expensive for the port town ($3.5-4 each).

    22222 by Elena N.


  • Elena N.Great food, but same can be found at many other places in Seattle for much cheaper. Definitely not worth the wait.

  • Seattle MetWith seven oyster varieties daily, W&C is a nosher’s paradise, not a dinner house, so plan accordingly. Then plan to wait, as dozens crowd the line ahead of you, and reservations aren’t accepted.

  • Bon Appetit MagazineFirst I ordered a dozen oysters, then I ordered six more, and then six more after that. The quarter-size Olympia, "Samish Sweets," and Malaspina varieties were that good.
