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

Never been disappointed. All the products were fresh and the dishes had the warmth of home-made food. The chefs take great care in selecting the best quality ingredient. Very Clean Restaurant

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

The food and service are always a 5 star!!! Great for both lunch and dinner.... It's a little bit hard to find, but once you get there it is worth the hunt.

One of my favorite places in Bellevue for a more upscale dining experience. great variety of surf and turf, including oriental touches (sushi and Thai themed dishes). Only down side was eh acoustics that made the place a bit loud.

We eat at Seastar often as we live nearby. It is consistently excellent. The service is outstanding. The menu is varied every thing from sushi to steak.... A lunch menu that is very reasonable and a dinner menu fit for dining with conversation, as it has a nice ambience.

We came here to get great crab legs and we weren't disappointed. The only crab on the menu was crab on a cedar plank and indeed a charred plank was under the crab. But I couldn't detect any cedar effect for which I was thankful. I wanted the sweet delicate flavor of crab and this is what I got. Cooked... More

Thank you for your comments. I can appreciate wanting a good value, and that is exactly what we offer. We only serve the Merus section of the King Crab. This is the thigh - the fattest, juiciest most desired section of the leg. This yields you the most bang for your buck. You will not find other sections that yield... More

We've dined a few times at Seastar. It's ranged from excellent to average. Those occasions that have been excellent were perfection. I took my husband to dinner for his birthday. We both ordered off the fresh list. The scallops I'd ordered before we're on the menu but with a different preparation and the sauce was sweet and distracting instead of... More
