A word from Blueacre Seafood
Centrally located in downtown Seattle, Blueacre is the quintessential American seafood restaurant drawing upon the vast array of wild seafood available from the United States coastal waters as well as carefully chosen sustainably-farmed freshwater species, oysters, clams and mussels. Blueacre Seafood will feature a full-service oyster bar and in addition to all things aquatic, farm-fresh meat, game, poultry, vegetables and artisanal cheeses. Brushed nickel accents, rich wood panels and warm leather booths reflect Blueacre's American seafood heritage. Classic handmade cocktails are shaken in a comfortable bar, well stocked with American spirits, craft beers on tap and an all-American wine list. Blueacre is Seattle's downtown seafood destination.

    I was here to review Blueacre for our company. I would not recommend it for lunch during peak business hours. The wait for food was too long, not sure if the restaurant was adequately staffed. Our entire lunch break came to 95 minutes as a result.

    Not only is Blueacre great in its seafood, it's basic fried chicken ranks supreme. Had to take an order to go. The seafood cioppino was fantastic. Asked for more pasta inside in lieu of french bread. Enjoyed its Maryland crab cake and clam pulgatory as appetizers

    Appetizer: mussels in amazingly delicious broth -- the taste was remarkable! Entree: center cut of salmon flavored nicely, only slightly overcooked, but excessively sweet sauce covering plate nearly ruined it. Friendly service. Unfortunately, entree arrived well before finished with appetizer. Expensive for lunch, but worth it.

    Blueacre is a beautiful restaurant in Downtown Seattle. There is a house oyster bar where fresh oysters are brought in daily and shucked to order. I recommend sitting at the oyster bar with Jack, the oyster chef expert, when you visit. He will happily answer any questions about the large variety of local oysters on the menu.

    Menu diverse but much more expensive that we expected, so we got oysters and soup. Oysters were adequate. Razorback clam chowder was very flavorful, but there were, like 6 pieces of clam in it. All potatoes. Limited draft beer selection.

    I used to come here for happy hour when I worked nearby. HH here is 'the bomb'. But then we came here for dinner to celebrate Veteran's Day. Nice food [and I am an accomplished cook so am a tough customer], excellent service and wine To Go. Oh and validated parking in downtown Seattle. Unheard of! Good for fancy dinner or casual happy hour.

    Everything about the lunch a friend and I ordered was perfect! I loved my picled salmon appetizer on potato pancake, unique! The cod stuffed with succulent crab we both enjoyed was so delicious, my friend ordered another lunch to take back to her husband--it was so good! And the chocolate pecan pie was a real treat. Service was super, as well. Altogether an excellent experience, memorable. Thank you!

    Came in for happy hour but got there 20 minuets early. They seated me in dinning room even though I told them why I was there and brought some nice bread and allowed me to wait until it started. They promptly came by when it started and made some suggestions and took my order. I came in wanting some oysters and a nice draft but also ordered the crab and shrimp tater tots. What a nice surprise when they showed up right away, hot with a nice crunchy outside. They were served with a nice tiger sauce with a sweet pepper salad on top. I then moved onto the oysters and was able to that day choose a variety of four different kinds. All very fresh that came with three dipping sauces. Will make this a must on our next trip here.

    We had a 5:30 reservation before a 7 pm show two blocks away. We told the receptionist and also our server and everything came quickly, leaving us plenty of time to consume some not at all fast but delicious food (whole Idaho brook trout, for instance) at our leisure without feeling rushed, plus cappuccino at the end. Just an all in all good experience.

    Brought my parents and 9 year-old niece to dinner before taking them to see Beauty & The Beast. My parents are not picky, but don't dine out as often as I do (they live in the suburbs vs. the city). The menu was fresh and creative, showcasing NW flavors and offering a great variety without being intimidating or overwhelming. Our server was incredibly gracious and accommodating, as was every staff member we encountered. Great start to a special evening out.

    Oyster selection is clean and crisp, but always go for Maryland sources. Fish part of fish and chips is outstanding...batter is slightly spicy and holds strong throughout dinner without being too much. Chips, however are too much...and just typical small French fries. A bed of fries to soak up extra oil from the fish is not a bad idea, but a bit of a waste. Just a few large steak fries on the side would be better.

    Granted this place has seafood in the title, but there were only 1 or 2 non seafood options on the menu, which I felt to be a little troublesome since I don't eat seafood. My mom picked this place on our Mother/Daughter trip, and who am I to deny her seafood cravings. The fried chicken I had was pretty tasty and juicy, but I would've liked to have had a few more non seafood choices.
