Excellent seafood. We were there recently to celebrate a 50th birthday and service was excellent. We started with the seafood tower which consisted of shrimp, scallops and crab cakes. Highly recommend this starter. They have a variety of fish and always well prepared and well presented. They do accept reservations. Must pay for parking which I feel should should be... More

Service always good and attentive without being overbearing. Wonderfully fresh seafood and salads prepared in creative ways with distinctive flavors. Expensive but worth the price!

This is one of the top restaurants in the area. We travel from California once a year and this is now a must stop for us. Oysters, Hors d'oeuvres, sushi, and dessert are all off the charts. And what outstanding service. Couldn't have been better.

We have been to Seastar a number of times, both as a "date night' and with children and grandparents. The menu has enough variety to satisfy even those without a seafood fetish, plus delicious options for those who are huge fans.

Great cocktails, great wine, fantastic service and amazing food! The appetizer sampler tower was perfect for a large group. The entrees all had a twist to them, hearty portions and superbly prepared.

We go to Seastar quite frequently with clients and the food is always excellent. The wait staff go out of their way to make sure you are satisfied. The prices are a little high, but as with most things, you get what you pay for.

I am always surprised/reminded of how wonderfully prepared all the dishes are when I go here. The location is weird, but don't be fooled. Once you are inside the atmosphere is nice and the food is impeccable.

My friends and I go to Seastar every year for a celebratory holiday luncheon. A girlfriend and I also go here about once a quarter for a lovely lunch to catch up - and we love to just sit at the bar. Yesterday we took a friend to celebrate her birthday and sat at a table in the bar. Our... More
