Can here on the recommendation of some colleagues, and was delighted. The main course of the Tuna was really outstanding, and all the appetizers where really great. Two things to remember: * Make a reservation (the place is very busy) * They have a parking in the same building (and you can validate it)

I have been several times for lunch. Can't beat the crab sandwich! Also, been there for happy hour. Delicious 😃

You don't eat this food, you experience it. Every dish had a unique blend of flavors and was better than the last. The scallops melt in your mouth and the deviled egg appetizer was nothing to smirk at. My husband enjoyed the extra stout they offered.

The food has always been good and fresh. Mostly fish on the menu. They need to have a few choices for people who do not like fish other then one steak and one chicken dish.

We made reservations for a party of 11. We were seated within 10 minutes of our reservation time. There were several wait staff for our table and they were attentive to our requests. I have food allergies and they were accommodating to my requests.

We went with another couple to celebrate a birthday (on a Monday) we thought the restaurant wouldn't be packed, but it was very full. The food and service was very good, as expected. But what surprised us was the acoustics of the place. We all mentioned how exhausted we felt after we left because we had to work so hard... More

the food is amazing. the staff is very attentive and the ambiance is well worth the trip. I had the lobster bisque to start.. it was creamy, filled with great chunks of lobster and warrants a 'lick the spoon' attitude. The fish was perfectly cooked with sides that did not overwhelm the delicate flavors.

My husband and I just happened to find some good reviews of this restaurant while we were in town. We were visiting from Japan, so we are spoiled with excellent seafood. For us, it can be difficult to find good seafood when we visit the U.S., but Seastar did a pretty good job of satisfying our sashimi craving. We really... More

Been here several times- always amazing- service is on point but not obtrusive- not cheap by any stretch of the imagination but worth it. The tilapia crusted with parmesan is amazing- everything on the menu is pretty unforgettable and they also have a great bar. I have sat at the bar, just had appetizers and it has been great too-...
