The new All Water Seafood & Oyster Bar, which is located on the site of what was a tackle & bait shop in 1936, draws inspiration from the materials and tools once sold there. It celebrates Seattle's maritime industry, from the portraits of fishermen and articulated shelves to the fresh seafood highlighting the best of the Pacific Northwest. The rustic materials draw from the simplicity of fishing boats, incorporating worn white-washed wood, metal, and simple white brick.

Very Slow to get food on a Saturday night. Some menu items very bland. Breakfast on Sunday much better and better service.

Went during restaurant week. Mgr. said the main menu was the "old" chef and the restaurant week menu was "by the' new' executive chef - to show the direction he will be going." A good direction indeed. They pride themselves on fresh local oysters, of course. We had a very nice coriander encrusted halibut, cooked perfectly; an interesting short rib and scallop dish that my wife felt was excellent. Creative saucing; nice presentation. Excellent appetizer of chorizo stuffed calamari, fingerling potatoes. Nice wine list, not too expensive. Kitchen was a little slow but server pleasant. Cocktails well done. Will definitely go again and looking forward to "all new" menu.

Restaurant Week dinner very well imagined and presented seafood menu. Seemed more ambitious than the regular menu. Hope they keep it up.

It was Seattle Restaurant Week. Arrived at 4:45 for our reservation. Appetizer was served at 5:30. Calamari/sausage was unevenly heated, sausage was gritty, dish did not come together. Salad was huge, not cut properly.
Halibut was excellent. Short rib/scallops did not meld well, ingredients on plate did not complement one another. A hodgepodge of tastes, flavors, textures.
Desert, cheesecake, unremarkable.
Price of glass of wine, unclear. HH price for some, regular price for others.
Service was attentive/friendly.
Dining space was very nice.
Would maybe return someday, too much competition in Seattle.

It was our first time at this restaurant. The atmosphere was cosy but vibrant with the "industrial look." We went for restaurant week and the food was great and really delicious. I was extremely fresh and they were creative with the Restaurant Week menu.The halibut was delicious and nicely presented and the vanilla bean cheesecake with the rhubarb sauce was delicious . We additionally ordered roasted brussel sprouts. Unfortunately, the service was slow and the brussel sprouts came out as we had finished the main meal. We weren't in a hurry but this is a restaurant we wouldn't choose pre theater. I would go back with the hopes the service had improved.

It’s a safe choice. Cooking was bit on the conservative side. Nothing surprises me. But quality is good.

We have made the All Water Seafood & Oyster Bar our defacto meeting place with our out of state clients when they come to Seattle. Its a really well run establishment with a great design element in the heart of the city and the food is great (kudos to the chef and kitchen).

We were looking for a place to eat near the art museum with Happy Hour oysters and seafood. I enjoyed everything we tried. Service was excellent. I hope to get back to this place next visit to SAM and have plenty of delicious oysters!

They were having power issues when we were there but all went fine.
The space is a little open and 'cold'. Not the temperature as such but the general feeling of the place.
Our server Liis was lovely and very attentive.
Food was fine - Bisque was good - cobb salad was fine.

We went here for New Year's Eve 2017 with different expectations in mind. Traveling from Portland, we knew what to expect based on the publicized menu, but were not familiar with the hotel and general ambience. Cold, sterile and the lights were on full blast. The restaurant was cold, the service a little too casual for the 5* price tag, and the food was so-so. Seems like a great option for a quick happy hour, but would not recommend for special occasions.

First time there after renovation from being "BOKA." It was a quiet day between Christmas and New Years so difficult to tell what it will be like under normal circumstances. The food was good. The menu seemed limited.

Very limited menu, but the food we had (crab cakes and a kale, pear and ricotta salad) was very good. It's a shame that they decided to COMPLETELY change a warm and welcoming place -- formerly BOKA, one of our favorite gathering spots -- into a wanna-be seafood place that's really just a too bright hotel breakfast room.

Convenient location if staying at the Lowes Hotel 1000 or the Hotel Alexis across the street, but the service was a bit confused/spotty and the menu for brunch is somewhat limited. The kitchen clearly did not like my request for a scramble instead of an omelet, although the server insisted it would be no problem. Still, I would have preferred a polite but honest "no" than to get the omelet I did not request, and have it whisked away, chopped to bits and hastily returned when I (politely) pointed it out. One wonders in those situations what else happened in the kitchen. But despite this mishap, I would give it another try if I was in the neighborhood. P.S. Try the tempura cinnamon roll--you will either love it or hate it!
