Staff are very friendly and professional. Visiting the children again in Seattle, they wanted to try the Seastar again. The rockfish taco chosen by two of our party was declared the best dish they'd eaten at Seastar to date. I was only our second time - I went chicken and the husband went tilapia - mainly because of a curiosity... More

We try to return to this restaurant when we pass through the the Seattle area. It was a favorite while we lived there. Consistently good! Meals have always been great. My husband's favorite will always be the scallops. It is his standard of how scallops should be prepared. I jump all over the menu, but this last visit I splurged... More

Last week, we celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary by having dinner at the SeaStar in Bellevue. Nearly everything was perfect. We started with "salmon poke" appetizer and then shared a Caesar salad. For entrees, I had the potato chip encrusted halibut with an arugula/tomato salad on the side, and my wife had sauteed sea scallops (8 large). The service was... More

Shared appetizers and dessert with wife. We had the crab cakes which were delicious but a little small (but hey they're crab cakes!) , pork tenderloin which was good and plentiful and the coconut white chocolate pie for two which we shared for 3 meals.

Have been here before, but always enjoy coming here. For some of the best seafood in the area, this is the place. The sesame seared ahi was to die for. Also has macadamia nut crusted mahi mahi, which was very good. Server, Karen. Was very attentive, concerned, and efficient. Would go again.

First let me say the Dungeness Crab Bisque was unbelievably amazing, so that was where my experience started. Enjoyed the deviled eggs as a starter as well, and then had a wonderful Haddock dish with bacon and edamame relish. The server we had was super-friendly, made sure we enjoyed our visit, and was absolutely attentive. Busy place, excellent menu, wonderful... More

We love going to Seastar. We usually sit in the bar area since it is less formal & we can eat Tapa style.
