“Priced on the high side however it's good”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

I have been meaning to try the Seastar for sometime now and when a business meeting nearby ended in dinner made reservations here. While it is pricey taking advantage of the area the service was very good and the seafood selection fresh and varied that coupled with an excellent wine list made for a successful dinner meeting.

The diners seemed to be equally split between work related dining and locals stopping in for dinner, most of those at the very large bar area.

Our table had a varied selection of offerings from oysters, and fish, all well prepared.

Try it.

“Awesome selection”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

The sushi and sashimi were some of the best I've had. Very good sweet and sour soup. We would also recommend the oysters. We were there on a Wednesday night and the restaurant was crowded, but the service was great. They gladly accommodated our special requests. Low cost ($7) valet parking next door.

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

We stayed at the Pan Pacific. We typically avoid restaurants in hotels but we're very pleasantly surprised by Seastar. The food was excellent - a good choice of sushi, sashimi and seafood. The service was outstanding. Will come again next time we're in Seattle.

“Three times in one week!”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

This may sound a bit psychotic .. but I had dinner at Seastar three times in one week! twice in the restaurant, and once in the bar! Why? The food was great.. and good setting for a business dinner.

I experienced a wide range of the menu over three sessions consisting of starters, mains & desserts. Service is good to great, but the food is great for a not over the top evening.

If your dining by yourself the bar is a good option, & also a good spot to hang out if you're early for your table.

Share plates are great to experiment with.... particularly the Oysters & Sushi.

A recommendation to the restaurant: add a cheese plate & a sample shared dessert plate to the menu.

overall a 5 star experience!
