Delicious evening for two as we celebrated our 24th anniversary. We trained down from Vancouver and reserved ahead telling them of our special occasion. They greeted us and everyone there seemed to know it was our anniversary, going out of their way to acknowledge us. We had the Ahi Tuna and Sea Bass and both were excellent. Great food, excellent service and even a special box of chocolate truffles to celebrate the evening. No hesitation recommending Seastar!

I love Seattle and I go there frequently on business. I usually end up at Ivar's because of my love for clam chowder but I took a chance and blew 50.00 at this place and it was amazing.

I had the Talapia and it came out browned, soaked in some sort of butter sauce, and I not only finished all of it, but I ate the salad too which was fresh.

Real good clean upscale warm place.

This is an excellent seafood restaurant with a wide selection of fish, shellfish and raw, suchi-style dishes. Everything was delicious and the service is friendly and highly attentive. The atmosphere is nice, with attractive lighting and well spaced tables. Decent wine list.

This is one terrific restaurant! The food was outstanding...pristine oysters, great soup, the most delicious fish preparations anywhere, and wonderful service. This is one great place and the prime place for seafood in a city that boasts many seafood restaurants.
