Great selection of seafood, sushi, other northwest favorites. The rosemary crackers in the bread basket are really good. Little on the pricey side, but excellent service and quality food - not huge portions. If you're going to dinner, the ambient noise level is on the high side.

This is a rather large restaurant located in downtown Bellevue. It has validated underground parking. We arrived early on a Saturday night, shortly after they opened. The staff is wonderful, from the hostess to our waitress, and the bus boy. We ordered the crab corn bisque -- simply delicious! The Korean kal bi tender loins in teriyaki sauce. This is... More

Very good food. I got the cedar plank salmon and really enjoyed the rich flavor. They cook their salmon to a medium which really brings out a good salmon flavor. Highly recommend this restaurant. Servers are knowledgeable and friendly.

One of the best restaurants I've eaten in. Will be shut down soon for a modernization but if open, don't miss. Ask for Kelley as your waitress, she is as good as the food.

A must eat place in Bellevue. If you ware a seafood lover, then you must try this place. The quality of food was out of the world. I had oysters and salmon. Oysters were so fresh and every bite reminded of the Pacific Ocean. Salmon was cooked to a perfection which reminded me of eating wild salmon in Alaska. Great... More

The quality of food here is absolutely amazing. I had the crab and sweetcorn bisque which is a personal favourite dish and the one at Seastar was the best that I've ever had! We also had a couple of other dishes that we shared and all were of an amazing quality.
