The Walrus and the Carpenter has gained quite a bit of popularity in Seattle for a good reason; the best oysters! Be prepared to put your name on the list and have a bit of a wait. It is worth it though. The restaurant has an upscale mashed with relaxed/fun-loving vibe. The space is chic; antler chandeliers and sultry lighting with a cozy, vintage feel to the space. But alas, the star of the show: the oysters. Pacific northwest and California fresh, delectable oysters. Even if you don't like oysters- you will after coming here! We split a sampler platter and tried a few more delicious seafood small plates.
