Excellent wine list. Extraordinary fresh seafood. Yep its expensive. Good seafood of this level requires that you pay for it. Ignore all the business guys and microsofties. Tuck in and eat oysters with an excellent dry Washington wine. Be happy.

Mark, the general manager welcomed us. He and our waiter, Jason, were appropriately attentive to our needs, making recommendations and clearing dishes off the table. The food was consistent as always which is worth mentioning as we have the bisque and crab cake every year. The crab cake is crab filled rather than filling filled. The corn/crab bisque has a...

Seastar was recommended by local dining companion for outstanding seafood; I was not disappointed! Started with the deviled eggs topped with salmon and spicy tuna roll. Ancho chili spiced steelhead was delicious. Bourbon creme brulee was enough to share. Good wine list, and great happy hour specials. Lots of gluten free options are available. Also, validated parking garage onsite.

He was engaging and we needed up ordering 2 more fantastic bottle with our lengthy dinner. The oysters for appetizers were very good and we all had a... More

We had a nice upscale dinner. We went to celebrate a special event. The food was OK. We started with oysters, which were OK, though not the largest, or the tastiest I've ever had. I had the Basil-Garlic Grilled Shrimp with Pesto Sauce, which was nice - though the shrimp was just a little overcooked. For dessert I had the... More

We visited this place twice for our stay in Bellevue (five days). Food was great. I think it serves the best food in Bellevue. In particular oysters were super fresh. My wife and I enjoyed the real oysters. As an entree, we ordered a pasta with grilled shrimps and zucchini noodle in basil pesto sauce. Simply put, it was perfect.... More
