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.

We ate here with a group from our conference we attended at the Motif. This restaurant came highly regarded by hotel staff, locals, and reviews. It makes sense why. The food is outstanding. The portions are smaller than I am used to especially for the higher price. However, the food and atmosphere easily made up for it. We used OpenTable to secure our reservation for 8 and it couldn't have been easier.

The Blue Acre was amazing! Some of the best seafood we have ever eaten! Our waiter was wonderful, suggesting items that he thought we would enjoy. And we did! We had the sourdough bread with an amazing lemon oil butter, followed by clam chowder and Dungeness crab cake. The papaya spiral in top totally complemented the crab cake which was light tasting. The halibut was perfect in every way. Mild with a crispy crust-best we’ve ever had. The salmon was wonderful too. Unfortunately, we had eaten so much we weren’t able to finish with a dessert. We highly recommend this restaurant, which had been recommended to us by one of our physicians back in Kentucky! We were not disappointed!

Always enjoy Blueacre Seafood. I like the atmosphere, servers are nice, food hasn't been a miss yet. The only issue last time was that the server kept forgetting our drinks. Overall good experience.

Greg provided great recommendations and quality service with a friendly smile. My friend’s only nonpositive comment was that he felt the oysters did not taste as fresh as he would’ve hoped. That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed all of food and drinks.

I am a regular for happy hour and love the menu options offered. We decided to eat there before a Paramount show. It's really good. But I just have a rough time spending over $40-$48 for an entree. There are places I might spend that but it would generally be in a setting with more elegance and superior service. There is nothing wrong here except the pricing being inconsistent with the overall feel. Just keep in mind when you next plan on dinner there.

Everything from mimosas to coffee and dessert was wonderful. So lovely to have a wonderful Easter Brunch without doing any work. Tim’s potatoes chip coated fish and chips with onion rings and the salted caramel panda cotta were my favorites today. Perfectly prepared. The crab cakes my husband had large pieces
of crab. Yummy

I've been to BlueAcre a handful of times with friends and family. The fish dishes are outstanding and the service is really great. We had a situation where we felt as if our Cod dish wasn't living up to our expectations and our server was very helpful in getting that dish replaced. The server also asked for feedback for the chef! They're definitely a restaurant if you to have a business meeting in or take your family to nice a dinner.

We had oysters, mussels, cod, halibut and salmon at the table. The cod, halibut and oysters were outstanding. The mussels and salmon were good. We tried cheesecake, brownie and rhubarb tart for dessert. The tart was very good, the brownie was good, the cheesecake was ok. It’s a nice restaurant.

We dine here frequently, the food and service are usually excellent. This visit our service was below par, we were never asked about a drink order or dessert and no explanations or suggestions were given by our waitperson. The food was fine but not the usual five star experience. we will be back with hopes for the very best again.

First time at Blueacre Seafood. The first impression was not welcoming. The host was very non-chalant, not a positive customer experience when walking in the door.
The waitstaff however were much more friendly and attentive.
Food was good but not excellent, primarily the dessert was not what I expected.
Overall good but not sure I’d return given the initial impression.

First time dining here. We really enjoyed it. The fish and chips is special—best I’ve had. My wife had first of the season Halibut which was superb. Excellent wine choices and friendly service. Good value as well. It is somewhat noisy, but conversation was possible. If you like seafood, check it out.

Overall, we enjoyed the dining experience. Only Negative was the King Crab was over cooked, and at $90 for the portion seemed a little excessive. It was almost impossible to crack the shells they were so rubbery. Great wine list! Delicious Oysters.

Seattle seafood! Got 4.5 stars! And could take a table of 6 with no trouble at the last minute. But what a disappointment. My cooked oyster app was so over salted it hurt my mouth. It sits in a bed of rock salt- not sure why the kitchen would think I’d want those big chunks of salt also in my food. Local rockfish fish and chips was horribly and sadly over cooked. I couldn’t even eat the fries. One guest had mussels in a lemongrass broth that she thought was superb. Another guest had halibut she also said was superb. Service was cheerful but rough-people, stop leaning across guests to serve another guest! - and not around enough. Loud and looked like it was full of tourists and business groups. The decor is dated and unattractive. And expensive. One glass of wine, app and main was $75.
