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.

Last minute reservation we’ll accommodated. Server excellent. Attentive. Came for Alaskan King crab. Not available. Had Alaskan Halibut on a bed of creamy mashed potatoes with gravy and mushroom on top. Would have preferred them on the side. Server refilled our waters regularly as well as my soft drink. My husband was allowed to sample the lager he had before ordering. Overall very good meal. Large parties, which made hearing my partner’s conversation often.

Unfortunate the king crab is not an actual leg or two of crab. Rather the serve you knuckles And ends and didn’t actual give you a crab leg. When it was brought to the waiters attention he barely apologized and said yeah I will let the manager know to change the description cause you may not get a “crab leg”. For the price you would expect at least one full crab leg if not two. And the sides had no seasoning or love in their preparation. Overpriced and not good. Sad as I was really looking forward to the restaurant being awesome based on other reviews and general vicinity to fresh seafood.

Intermittent attentiveness from wait staff, though super friendly, they seem stretched too thin. Slightly pink King Salmon order came out nearly raw, sent back, then came out perfect.

My wife and I had dinner here before a show at the Paramount Theater. We weren't impressed. The entrees we order was just okay and the white wine served was cool, not cold. I ordered 2 different varietals about 20 minutes apart. I think they don't keep their white wines in an area dedicated to keeping white wine ice cold. With so many dining options in Seattle one would think that every restaurant would be on their toes with service and quality of food offered. The service was good but the food and wine were the let down.

i wasnt expecting a 20% service charge part going to a higher level. but the service was good, so i can live with it. Food was nothing special and a bowl of chowder for $12 sure should knock my socks off, it didnt. staff seems to be comfortable with serving more alcohol those who show signs of having enough. bettet optiokns exist.

It was a great evening out. I had the pasta with shrimp, which was fantastic! My wife had the Petrale Sole, which she thoroughly enjoyed. A bottle of Rombauer Chardonney completed our meal. We did not plan on desert, but ordered the Carrot Cheesecake. The presentation took us by surprise and was EXCELLENT! We talked about how great dinner was the whole of the next day...

Starter salad did not show up until after the mains. For the price one would expect white table cloths on all the tables as only half had them. It seems like it could be a fading establishment, hope I am wrong as the seafood is excellent.

The fellow greeting guests at the door needs serious coaching! No smile, clipboard in hand he stares at you then gruffly asks if he can help? This is the second encounter with him- doesn't set the stage for a great dining experience. Food was good and service was good.

Not a good value for the money. Waiter was in a hurry to get us out. He was clearing plates when only one of three guests was done eating. Alaskan black cod piece of fish was small.

Don’t miss the crab cake and the sourdough appetizers. There will be room for the excellent entrees. Unfortunately, there was no room for the amazing-looking desserts.

We went there because of Crab Legs and Live Lobster as advertised but they were out of King Crab Legs and the lobsters were only 1 1/2 pound. I ordered 2 of the lobster and my husband had the Dunguness crab . The lobsters were barely prepared to be served table-side... shell not cracked or split to make eating reasonable. My mistake in ordering lobster on the West coast. Would gladly have had King Crab legs had they been available.

I brought my husband here for his birthday because I’ve always heard amazing things about Blueacre. It did not disappoint. Ron and his serving partner (can’t recall his name) we’re so pleasant and provided amazing service which made the dining experience that much better. I had the cioppino, which was amazing! My husband had the black cod which was also delicious. Cannot wait to come back.

Celebrated our 26th anniversary with a delicious dinner of oysters, black cod, swordfish and really delicious hash browns. All excellent! The only item that wasn’t as good as the other food was the peach tart. Mostly crust and little peach. Nice scoop of ice cream made it tasty though. A go to place for fresh fish and great service on downtown Seattle.

We've loved Blueacre since they opened; it's been one of our go-to places in Seattle. Food and service are consistently very good. We do, however, feel that prices are getting too high for what we get in return. It makes me sad to write that.

Crab cakes were what I was looking for and Blueacre didn't disappoint. My heirloom salad was wonderful, but a little short on mozzarella. Peach tart was very good but if it was warmed up just a little it would be heavenly. Second dinner was also excellent, my daughter didn't want onions on her salad but got them but other than that everything was as ordered. Thank you. Excellent team play.

Blueacre didn't live up to its hype. I've had better sourdough bread. The artisan berry salad was saturated w/ dressing which was too vinegary. The scallops were good, but not worth the price. My idea of elegant, fine dining is not in a noisy place, w/ customers dressed in cargo pants, t-shirts and baseball caps. $200 down the drain for what? To pay for Blueacre's high rent location? Very disappointing!

My table of 9 had the most delicious dinner at Blue Acre! Ally the general manager was able to work us in despite how busy the restaurant was after several more guests joined us at dinner. Service was outstanding and attentive. The angry dungeoness crab was amazing! What a fun and delectable evening.

A bit pricey, they were out of king crab, our table was too small, a 2 person table for 5 of us, and they added the tip on to the bill, instead of letting us decide.

The food was delicious, although the price point was a little steep in comparison to other competitors in the area such as Daniel’s Broiler or Salty’s on Alki. This is also not a place for children nor people of color. The amount of looks and staring that took place was really uncomfortable,
