Nice ambience & service; main entries get mixed reviews. Not the best value for the $.

I've eaten lunches and dinners probably over 16 times in the past 3 years here; mostly due to business obligations. A clean and handsome restaurant with attentive servers. Decent for lunch, but overpriced for dinner. When given the choice, I prefer going elsewhere for business dining and have never... read more

You have two great options at Seastar! You can either eat in the lounge and get some terrific appetizers, delicious sushi, and drinks OR go full blown in the restaurant. You can order any of the items in either occasion and your decision just depends on which setting you would prefer when you go. Service is excellent and everyone has... More

I have only been to Seastar Restaurant once. My salmon was so overcooked that it was hard to eat. I think it is too expensive for the quality of food they serve. Service is good. We had reservations, but still had to wait for about 20 minutes to be seated.

Love the food and the service. Only complaint is they need to change the menu more than once a year. If they did, we would come more often.

First time at this location, have been to the Seatle location many times and this spot was not disapointing. Great food, service and wine.

This is one of my favorites in Bellevue in addition to John Howie's steakhouse at the Braveren. Sea star is absolutely relaxing, classy and sophisticated with incredible food pairing! I have dined here multiple times as will keep coming back!

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
