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.

  • Very disappointing
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 9/13/2014
    My wife and I were in Seattle for the first time. We were recommended to Blueacre by our concierge and also read reviews on OpenTable. We were excited to have great seafood in Seattle. We were very disappointed. The crab cakes were the highlight, as well as the french fries. However, my salmon dish was unspectacular. It was prepared Ok, but was not very flavorful. My wife had the blacked cod, which was an Asian preparation. It comes in broth with which had good flavor, but the fish itself was so moistened from the broth that it had to texture; it was so soft that it was mushy. Other than the food, the server did a good job taking care of us.

    Our dinner at Blueacre was incredible, everything we had read about the different courses was very helpful in deciding what to order...so may great options and there wasn't a thing we didn't enjoy and devour! Joe was our waiter and he was very attentive and helpful in deciding what to order. We will definitely return, so many more things we want to try!

    ...to dine! As many times as I've dined here I still find it amazingly great; the fish dishes are cooked perfectly and generally have very inspired sides included. Salads are equally inspired and one is enough for two persons. The 3 course prix fixe menu remains a solid bargain even though the price has risen about 25% in past 4 years; besides it can be shared between 2 persons if not starving. Will keep on returning!

    My friend and I made reservations for two on the patio. The food was quite good. I almost missed the 3 courses for $20 on the bottom right of the menu. I had the ling cod entree on whipped potatoes. The potatoes were soft and delicious, like clouds. The fish was also very good. We enjoyed our vantage of watching everyone walking by at 7th & Olive. The waiter took good care of us even though we were outside. I never felt like we were over-watched nor neglected. On a side note, this place also has a great happy hour.

    We recently had a 9:30 reservation on a Saturday night and were very disappointed in the service we received on this visit. Admittedly, we were a bit late for our reservation as the movie went longer than anticipated. When we were seated our waiter immediately told us we had to get our orders into the kitchen in less than 10 minutes, which was not a problem and we understood. The remainder of the evening went downhill. however! The menu special was no longer available and the wait person just sort of dismissed it as we were late diners and that was the way it was. Not very customer friendly! The service felt rushed and our original waiter seemed more focused on setting up for next day than waiting on us! Please don't rush late diners!

    This place is a hidden gem. They have a great happy hour on weekdays and weekends. Get there before 5:30 weekdays to get a decent seat. Food always amazing and they have a great selection with a rotating menu featuring seasonal food. Plus they have a great three-course meal option that is the perfect amount of food. The Tuna Ahi under main course was amazing but watch out for the pure wasabi. Oh, always check the daily specials there are usually a hidden gem there.

    We keep going back because Blueacre Seafood never disappoints us. We took guests who had never been there and they will now be regulars. Our waiter was very knowledgable about the seafood being offered while being friendly and attentive. They offered a "Summertime Special" with the choice of three appetizers, three entrees and three deserts. All at a reasonable price of $36. Everything was fresh and beautifully served. We have been there for impromptu fish and chips (excellent) at the bar to hosting a birthday dinner for twenty in their private room and they are always excellent! We live downtown so consider it OUR neighborhood go to restaurant for seafood or even their fried chicken while dining in a really nice atmosphere.

    Fantastic dining experience. Arrived late due to traffic and we were seated immediately. Greeted warmly by all. Delicious fresh fish and subtle flavors in all dishes. The appearance of the plated meal was very appealing. Nice appetizer array with generous portions and flavors. We noted the activity of all of the wait staff and all were focused on making sure customers were taken care of. They create box lunches and I know we will use them. We went to the theater afterwards and they made sure that we were able to get to the theater on time.

    Our hotel concierge recommended this place. It was 1 block from the hotel. The service was great. The food was great. Our server even asked the chef to make a flashed fried oyster appetizer for me that was not even on the menu. And he did. And it was fabulous. We met a couple that was leaving as we were going in that was making a reservation for the next night, so we had a clue that it might be good. And it was!!!

    I've been here twice and love the food. The kasu marinated neah bay black cod is DELICIOUS. The most tender fish I've ever had. It's almost Asian-inspired with bok choy and vegetables. They have a 3 course for $36 deal going on and the dishes are good.

    Food is generally very good. It was just so-so this night. But it was the service that was lacking. If I could give "0" stars, I would. Our meals came out VERY fast, within 5 minutes of ordering, but one of them was wrong. They said they would rush the correct order and that it would take only a few minutes. Twenty minutes later, it arrived. We come here fairly often, but this is the second time in less than 2 months that the service has been poor. Our loyalty is waning.

    I ordered the Nordi salad like I always do and it had changed from a chop salad to a wedge salad. Also the crab was only 4 claw meat pieces. In the past is was loaded with crab and only one claw meat piece. It was July and crab is in season so I longed for the famous Nordi salad and got something totally different. Not happy. Probably won't order that salad again. $18 for 4 pieces of crab and a chunk of lettuce is not very price friendly if you ask me. I guess I will have to go somewhere else for my crab fix.

Although I personally did not taste the fish and chips, I can tell you that they were enjoyed as well. The service was outstanding.

    Dined here while at a conference at the Hyatt. Service, menu, wine selection were all outstanding. Dishes were all superbly presented and tasted delicious. Our family really enjoyed the experience and the restaurant did a very nice job accommodating our infant son, they had space to store our stroller and a semi-private enclosed room which allowed for a bit more privacy, which was a very nice touch. All in all - a very good experience.

    The food here is good and service is usually good too; however, today I found service to be lacking. The napkin that I was given on my table had a big thumb print size imprint from wet food or chocolate on it. I had to flag down someone who brought me a new one from a neighboring table. That napkin turned out to be wet with soda or coffee on it (not mine) after I unrolled it. Thus I ended up using the napkin from the bread bowl that my bread was placed on. My diet coke and water glasses were allowed to remain unfilled for 10 minutes with no one noticing. My food came out, but my waiter never ever bothered to check if it came out correctly or if I was enjoying my food.
