Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

While in Seattle one must go Pikes Market and the Market Grill. It is inside the market on the ground floor. Can be a little difficult to find if you are using maps. You order at the counter and can sit at the counter if...there is room. It seats about 8 people, or they have a cordoned off area outside on the street with tables and umbrellas. We ordered the “world famous” blackened salmon and it did not disappoint. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The salmon presented on a grilled hoagie roll with a sauce of some sort, grilled salmon, I believe pickled onion and lettuce. It was light and delicious. I can see why it is “world famous”.More

We had the famous grilled salmon sandwich for lunch which was as delicious as many reviewers mentioned. The clam chowder had a wonderful « Pacific Northwest » flavor that was very special. Highly recommend. PS - the photo on Trip Advisor was not accurate. This is a...lunch counter set-up with a couple of backless stools that adds to the ambiance.More

A friend recommended the Market Grill when visiting Pike Place Market and it did not disappoint! We ordered two blackened salmon sandwiches and the were amazing. The fresh blackened salmon, lettuce, and tomato along with grilled onions and aïoli on a fire toasted baguette made...for a perfect combination. The staff was great and it was fun to sit at the counter and watch them prepare the food. You can also add a pin to a world map on the wall to show where you are from.More

Awesome casual lunch spot in Pikes Market. The best salmon sandwich I have ever head. So fresh and delicious. I would definitely recommend this spot to others. Not many counter seats but you can take and eat at other places. Amazing!

Some of the stock photos are not at the Market Grill. What you get is 8 counter seats and fresh seafood. We had the Copper River Salmon and clam chowder. As good as it gets. Canned soda or water. That’s it. In Pikes Market

I love the simplicity of the food here, super fresh ingredients, tasty as hell blackened Salmon, and the vinegret is really good. We tried the Seafood stew it was tomato base and I could have it as a person w/Celiac. Grateful for this place.

Tried to order on line and got thru the entire order w/entering my credit card, and it kicked me out saying grill not open and couldn't connect. So we walked over to the market and waited at the counter for them to open. When the...crew showed up they immediately grouched out to people in line to "go order on line." We told them we tried and got rejected because grill wasn't open, so they signed in to the register and said "ok, go order on line." We said we left our laptop & phone at home so just wanted to order on site. They said they'd take orders "sometime" after opening but would first process on-line orders. So, we stood in line for 20 more minutes (after opening) and watch them toast bread, but still not start any fish. And they'd already instructed other customers that if they had ordered on line, they should go out to the street counter and wait for their order. By 20 minutes after opening they were finally willing to take counter orders, but it was obvious we wouldn't be getting our food for another 30-40 minutes at best. Rude and definitely NOT customer oriented, we can't think of a single nice thing to say about the 2 staff except to say they were probably overwhelmed AS USUAL, which means management just doesn't care about staff or customers. Eventually, and I do mean eventually, we got our food to go and returned home. At this point we were so irritated, offended, and hungry that it really didn't matter how good the food might have been. Can't think of any bites that would have tasted good at this point. Will NEVER return here again, and would tell everyone we know to avoid this place. If its chowder you hunger for, go to Pike Place Chowder (either at the market or a few blocks away in an office building).More

It hardly can, because it’s a kind of squared bar around the kitchen. Other possibility is to get outside and stick 2-3 tables together. It is not a true restaurant where u can gather with friends. Everyone can grab a... More
