    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.

    If you value your time & taste this not the spot. By 8p, many of the items are out due to limited supplies. We ordered salmon & lobster, it took almost an hour before it arrived. Missed our show waiting for food. Nothing from the server or restaurant to make up for lateness or limited food items.

    This is a wonderful seafood place with great service and a warm vibrant atmosphere. We came as tourists and were so glad we did not succumb to the obvious seafood places catering to tourists at the waterfront. Our group of 4 had different dishes, all fabulous. Our server was on top of everything. We will be back.

    Took my boss and two other people; they really were impressed. They come from Shoreline and rarelyget into the city at night, because they are elderly and have mobility issues, but with the convenient parking it was easy. Service very good, food excellent, vibrant. Good location for locals and to watch the young and mid age enjoy themselves.

    I had the spicey ciipinno which had an amazing broth. My wife had a perfectly cooked piece of salmon. The crab & shrimpntots were fun and delicious. The only hiccup were some forgotten oysters and the eventually made it. That's the only reason Blueacre didn't get 5's across the board.

    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!!!
