Aqua By El Gaucho

2801 Alaskan Way
Pier 70
Seattle, WA, 98121, United States
TEL: (206) 956-9171

Formerly known as Waterfront Seafood Grill, this Pier 70 institution offers killer views of Lake Elliott, in a modern, light-filled dining room. Glass walls embrace the location, as does chef Peter Levine's maritime menu. The oyster bar selections change daily, with regional bivalves served with mignonette or a West Indies cocktail sauce. Seafood Bacchanalia, with its mass of grilled king salmon, steamed lobster tails, diver scallops, wild prawns, and king crab is fit for two. But with El Gaucho at the helm, steak options abound. Wines favor the New World.

Insider Tip:

Rediscover a long-lost taste of Americana: the flaming baked Alaska. Aqua's Emerald City Volcano baked Alaska ends dinner on a festive, fiery note.
