Etta's Seafood Restaurant Review

: Etta's Seafood has the same signature quality as Tom Douglas' other dining destinations (Dahlia Lounge, Lola, Palace Kitchen and Serious Pie), but here, the focus is on seafood. Brightly hued tiled mirrors line the walls, iron sculptures shaped like fish bones serve as coat hooks, and whimsical light fixtures evoking octopus tentacles illuminate the dining room. Douglas’ eclectic culinary vision borrows from points East and West to create a menu heavily accented with comfort food favorites. Appetizers include saké-steamed clams and grilled octopus. Main dishes feature Douglas' Dungeness crab cakes, cod fish ‘n’ chips, and Alaskan halibut. Non-seafood lovers will enjoy the smoked chicken breast or the hand-cut spaghetti with artichokes and green garlic almond pesto. As with all of Douglas’ restaurants, desserts are worth the splurge. Don't miss the classic triple coconut cream pie or spiced carrot cake. A full bar and professional service enhance the dining experience.
