I would like to rave about this place because a lot of the food is wonderful, however, it gave me terrible gas and as a diner, while I appreciate taste, I would prefer a chef to consider the effect of mixing greens with certain fruits and then foisting it on their diners at 45 bucks a pop. House truffles are... More

t started out promising. The Seared Scallop appetizer presented a trio of scallops each with its own enhancements. My favorite was the peppercorn crust with a honey beurre blanc sauce. A second flavorful version came with tropical chutney with macadamia nuts. Both scallops were tender and nicely prepared. The third offering, featuring beets with a truffle dressing, didn't work as... More

A quiet, private room was the perfect setting for our group of execs. And the food was fantastic. Starter seasonal salad was delicious and I had the halibut with asparagus entree. Fantastic flavor and perfectly cooked. The only - and I mean only - 'constructive feedback' I would offer is about the truffle dessert. While absolutely delish, 6 of those... More

Disappointing experience. Server was bored and curt. Salmon filets were thin pieces of tail meat that were dried and tough. Management was responsive to the issue but meal was interrupted and disappointing.

I eat here frequently during business trips to Bellevue. The seafood is always quite good. The restaurant always seems accommodating of my need for tables for large groups, sometimes with a frequently changing final number of diners. Recently, with a group of nine we shared as appetizers the large sushi plate, the chef's plate, and the "seafood tower" which was... More

Living in the area we only hit up Seastar for our special occasions. This is always a first rate restaurant. The service is top notch and the food never disappoints. We took our daughters here for a Easter/birthday dinner. Everyone enjoyed everything. The only downside is the price. I think you can get excellent Seafood in the Seattle area for... More

Went there for a business dinner. Massive selection of fish and seafood, as expected. Food was good but not too exciting. Went for the Seattle Restaurant Week menu... Ahi poke with good seasoning but why torch the tuna? Main course was nice, Steelhead with Thai curry. The curry creamy and spicy, sticky rice not my favorite. Try the Creme Brulee!... More

My husband and I visited Seastar for my birthday dinner. I am a seafood fan and had heard many good reviews on this restaurant. We started sharing a Caesar salad, which, truthfully was just mediocre. My main dish was fantastic. (See photo). I ordered sesame peppercorns crusted ahi, with a jasmine rice cake. Served with ginger-soy reduction and wasabi cream.... More
