Great ambiance but the food is hit or miss. Ate there two nights in a row - 1st night got the Salmon and it was so good I ordered it for the second night. On night two it was sub par. Other visits have been similar.

I just ate there this evening and walked away with a really good impression of the staff. The oysters were good, dinner was also very good, and I will go back without hesitation. It is not a cheap restaurant, but I wouldn't call it expensive either, but thats a relative term..I had 2 woodfords in the bar, by wife had... More

The cocktails in the bar were great while we were waiting for our table. Our appitizer was very tasty, and our meal extremely good! The price is expensive but worth it once in a while

We took advantage of restaurant week to visit this restaurant three times with some very good friends of us. We really enjoyed the food, the service and the overall experience.

While I don't like the lack of privacy in the dining area, the food is superb. She sushi is outstanding; the mushroom appetizer is divine, and special requests are always no problem. Oh, and the drinks are to die for. Enjoy!

I visited this restaurant with a friend and we both enjoyed the food. However, the acoustics and perhaps type of crowd there resulted in an unacceptable level of noise and chatter. Perhaps a good place to go for a loud evening of drinking and food with some friends, but not relaxing at all, at least not during my one visit..

I'm not big on seafood but I did enjoy it. The setting is nice and service was very prompt and professional. Would return.

Howie's Sea Star is without doubt one of the top restaurants in the area for seafood. His Ceviche, tuna and Ancho Chile Steelhead dishes are among the unbeatable offering here. Have eaten here on 5 occasion and have not been disappointed. Fresh fish, great flavors and beautiful presentations. Don't miss desert!!

A very stylish place to dine. The food is beautifully cooked and well presented. There is a good choice of interesting and appetising dishes for all courses and the waitress was happy to respond to any questions and make recommendations. Would definitely go again an would recommend to others. Don't expect a cheap evening though.
