Great food - good service

A top-notch fine-dining establishment right in the heart of Bellevue, Good service, decent wine list, great seafood! Plan to spend a bit, especially for freshest seafood, but it is worth the splurge. They also have valet parking, so take advantage of it and avoid the Bellevue parking headaches.

Despite being a sea food restaurant, I ordered a burguer: it was DELICIOUS! I sat at the bar and the bartender service was outstanding! I want to come back for a dinner!

Took my wife here for her birthday and ever since then all I hear from her is "when are we going back to Sea Star!"

Sea-Star is a nice restaurant located in the heart of downtown Bellevue. While on the first floor with plenty of windows - there is no water in sight... but a convenient downtown option for both lunch and dinner. The chef's history of great food and atmosphere continues here at Seastar. Quality ingredients and great flavors - a little on the... More

I have been here for business, with friends, family and dinner and this place always delivers. Its a fun atmosphere, but not too noisy. The menu is diverse enough for everyone, including a gluten free menu.

I have been going to Seastar since it opened and it has never disappointed. The servers are excellent and the fresh fish with new twist always keep me wanting to return. This is the best restaurant in Bellevue.

Food was over priced and under appreciated as it was barely edible. In fact the smoked broccoli and the potatoes were not edible. When we brought this up to our server she had no response. We have eaten there many times before but not since. The experience,the food and the lack of caring continued to deteriorate until Seastar is no... More
