Seastar Restaurant & Raw Bar
Second time since going onSecond time since going on our 10-year anniversary - always good!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food!We came to celebrate my daughter who received a school award, as well as to celebrate Mother's Day. We were seated immediately for our 4:45pm reservation, and everyone was very friendly and courteous. The food was delicious! Seafood lovers should definitely order the Seastar Tower, either to share or as a dinner entree. Even with several patrons there and background music playing, the restaurant was never too loud where my family could not hear each other with normal conversation voices. We also appreciated the validated parking.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFlavor danceOur waiter had an outstanding repoire with our four year old son. It made the experience extremely pleasant for him, which as any parent will attest to...it makes it a pleasant experience for us.
The CA roll had a clean fresh taste, but not noteworthy. The Bisque was rich and tangy. It would have been better serviced as a shot, for it was too rich on the palette to be eaten entirely, even from the little 4oz bowl size. We tried both the Salmon dishes and found them cooked to perfection with just the right amount of seasoning to lingering on the tongue without over powering the delicate flavor of the salmon. The vegetable accompanying the salmon a tad oily, but flavorful with a bit of a snap.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe world's best Dungeness Crab BisFor all you Dungeness crab lovers -- get to Seastar today and order the Dungeness crab and corn bisque. Yes, it has a bit of cream. But it's without a doubt the best soup I've ever had, and the few extra calories are more than worth it. Incredibly sweet and delicious.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWell organized, efficientWell organized, efficient and courteous service, with excellent food (quality & presentation).5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMVery helpful wait staff, goodVery helpful wait staff, good food. Only complaint is that the chairs are slightly too high for me (I'm 5'3") so only my toes touch the ground.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWent to Seastar for a birthdayWent to Seastar for a birthday dinner.

It is a high end and expensive restaurant, so we normally only go there no more than twice a year.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe seafood from the Raw BarThe seafood from the Raw Bar is wonderful. I'd make a whole meal out of it, but then I'd miss out on the great entrees.
I didn't specify a special occasion on the reservation, but the waitress asked. When I said that we were celebrating a birthday, they gave us a free desert (our choice) with a candle. . . and No Extra fanfare.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThoughtful service by ourThoughtful service by our waitress, although the number of people who kept serving us water and coffee was a bit intrusive.

From the wine to the appetizer, the salad, the entree and the dessert.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a fabulous date nightIt was a fabulous date night for my husband and I !3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe only problem i saw isThe only problem i saw is when the waiters or managers go around
and "dust off" the seats of the chairs by taking a napkin and hitting
the chair seats thus causing dust to arise into the air.
I know they are probably knoching off ant small crumbs that might be on the
seats but surely there is a better way to do it thne by causing a "dust storm".3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Grilled Sea Scollop entree'The Grilled Sea Scollop entree' would have been better if the plate had included a savory element. With all of the items being sweet they muted the taste of the scallops.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food... usuallyThe menu has a great selection of fresh fish - both raw and cooked. The ahi tuna was very good, but the rice cake served with it was lacking flavor.3/18/2013 12:00:00 AMEasy to get to and excellentEasy to get to and excellent parking. Our dinner was delicious and the service was excellent.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways AmazingNever a bad dish! Every dish we have eaten has been amazing. Scallops just melt in your mouth, the crabcakes are a must. The service is always outstanding. Our favorite restaurant hands down.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA very good dining experience.A very good dining experience. This is one of my favorite places to take clients on the Eastside. You can't go wrong with the service and food. As the valet out front takes the hassle out of parking. All in all a great value.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite...My favorite restaurant!
The food never disappoints! Chef Howie is a master at his combination of food and sauces that pair together wonderfully...good to the last drop! YUM!!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMPricey? Yes, but worth it....Pricey? Yes, but worth it. Excellent seafood especially the raw bar dishes. Only negative that bothered me was when offered some ground pepper on my salad, the waitress grabbed the small pepper mill on the table and used it. Really, I have been to many lower end restaurants where they at least carry one of those monster mills with them when serving salads so one can enjoy much fresher ground pepper! Picky point probably.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful ServiceBest friend needs special preparation for her meals. Waiter and chef were extremely accommodating and entree was still delicious. Always pleased at Seastar.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was outstanding.Everything was outstanding. No complaints whatsoever.2/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother 5 Star Visit!The menu for fish is vast and you can't go wrong with any single choice. Paired with a great wine and was very pleased. Service was great as well!12/20/2012 12:00:00 AMGreat seafood menu!Another great dinner that can always expect from Seastar. Even though the menu is seafood-centric, I had the New York steak this time around and it was amazing.
The service felt slightly rushed and that's why 4/5 stars.
I'll be back!12/12/2012 12:00:00 AMGreat menu and atmosphereSeastar has a great menu with tons of raw bar items, ceviche, and fresh fish.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
