Fresh seafood; interesting Asian spin without being bizarre. Consistently outstanding food and service. Located in the main floor of an office building; no view.

The seafood is among the best I've ever had!! Everything is excellent. The staff is absolutely professional - they can answer any question, and they truly know what 'service' means. I've never had anything less than an excellent meal and an excellent experience at Seastar.

My mouth waters thinking about this restaurant- definitely top 10 on my list and cannot wait to return this weekend. Everything about our meal was to die for. Parking was not as difficult as other contributors have suggested-call the restaurant to find out which parking garage they will reimburse parking fees.

Seastar is one of my favorite restaurants. They have a great variety from steaks to seafood to crab melt sandwiches. The chefs are great.

I have eaten here several times. While the location is tricky for parking there is a valet service and a large lot over the road near the Tully's Coffee Corner. The staff are very well turned out but at busy times don't expect to get a place unless you have booked. Dining in the area around the bar also works... More

both the service and the food are excellent here. Don't be put off by the location - in the lobby of an office building. Extensive wine list, great desserts. I love the parmesan crusted fish - whatever's available. Their crab mac & cheese (in season) is fabulous.

Had an enjoyable meal here on a Tuesday evening. Service was faultless and highly recommend trying the seafood dishes - my tuna carpaccio starter and grilled swordfish main were delicious. My creme brûlée was average though so have taken off a star. Perfect for business dinners but less so for leisure and romantic IMO due to layout and clientele.

The dining room is elegant but not stuffy and the noise level is perfect for business dinners. Really enjoyed the scallop ceviche which was creatively served in beautiful decorative shells. The pear salad I ordered was a little heavy on the blue cheese dressing but it wasn't terrible, just quite rich. Oysters were excellent quality and the wine list was... More

Totally amazing deviled eggs and they make them as if they are a true art form! I was not impressed with the seafood only because I am from Norway originally and I grew up eating it fresh. In a nice area of town, real upscale with valet parking.
