I had glass in my food that I then ate and have had sort of lodged in my throat since. The waitress and manager were very nice about it though, so that was great service. No complaints other than that!
The restaurant did a great job with social distancing and cleanliness.
The staff was very attentive.
Sooooo good to be back...food and service were perfect
Another awesome dinner at SeaStar! Pretty quiet due to the 50% occupancy but the food was stellar.
Had an absolutely great dinner at Seastar. The Pear Martini was the best drink I’ve had in a long while. Service was wonderful- attentive but not overbearing. A great way to celebrate being able to go out to dinner again. Thank you.
Really friendly stuff, great service and delishios food! Like the experience, will come over again.
It was nice to visit a restaurant again, and the staff at Seastar made us feel welcomed, safe, and satisfied!
Awesome food and service. One of the best in Bellevue.
Wonderful anniversary celebration. Thank you Seastar and John for making our night possible.
First night out with hubby to celebrate Father’s Day weekend!
Service, food , and recommendations were fantastic! We’ll be back and already ordered their curbside weekly dinner for July4th!
First time dining out since restaurants re-opened, went to celebrate graduation.
Hostess, waitstaff were all wonderful. It is harder to hear people speak or read facial expressions with their masks on. Definitely lacks the pre-covid ambiance but felt clean and safe.
We were looking forward to having some of our usual favorites, but the menu is very limited. They should really stress that on the website as it shows a full menu on Open Table. We had to settle for what was on the menu ordering new entrees, it was OK,
Again, service was good and not their fault communication is tough wearing a mask. Also, the stripped down tables and brighter lighting is probably the best they can do given the circumstances.
Just don’t set your expectations high upon returning as it’s very different.
I will say they have the take-out service nailed!
We so looked forward to being able to come back to Seastar after it being closed for Covid. It did not disappoint us at all. The food was excellent and also the service too. We cannot wait to be able to come back again.
I love the food at Seastar. I've been going for years. They are very consistent. The service is great. The atmosphere is wonderful. The items on the menu change seasonally so I never get bored.
we had the privilege of being at Seastar on its "re-opening night." As always, the food was wonderful and the service was perfect. The whole team there worked very hard to make the evening comfortable and safe for them and us. We are big fans of both of John Howie's restaurants, and were really glad to be there for him and his team during the "take out only" time, and on their first nite back open. Wonderful meal!
All was excellent, just a strange circumstance with social distancing, have to adapt to our new environment. Wonderful to go out again.
Pedro was our server and was OUTSTANDING! :-)
The place was closed. First, they confirmed my reservation and when I came they were almost closed, they even didn't allow us to have a drink while we were waiting for a taxi. Maybe there are tasty( now I can only guess) but the service really bad.
Went for an anniversary and was excited for some good seafood. Even though I knew what prices were going to be still a bit alarming to open the menu and see an 8 oz glass or basic wine for $18. The looking at the food and seeing nothing under $49 going all the way up to $165 for a NY strip steak. Just crazy no matter how it’s prepared. Ended up getting the salmon. Shrimp ceasar salad and clams. All was delicious but nothing to flip out over. I will say the waitress was super nice and knowledgeable. She recommended the bourbon butterscotch creme brûlée and boy was she right it was delicious. All said and done I think it’s a solid 4 but definitely over priced. Our tab came to $175
Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback, and the positive review. We always appreciate feedback from our guests, it is one of the ways we make decisions on what needs to improve at our restaurants. I'm sorry that you felt the restaurant was over priced. We try to do our best to offer a range of pricing that will fit all guests needs, one that provides value. That is why we offer a 4 fl. oz pour or an 8 fl. oz pour for wines by the glass this allows us to provide range and allows guests to try many different wines. The usual wine pour at a restaurant is 5 fl. oz's, years ago we moved to the 4 fl. oz or 8 fl. oz option as it is easy for guests to equate those pours to 1/2 cup or 1 full cup. We currently have 4 fl. oz options from $5-$11.50, and 8 fl. oz pours from $12 - $24. Just as an FYI, an 8 fl. oz pour is the equivalent of 31% of a bottle approximately 1/3rd of the bottle. Two and one-half years ago, right after our remodel we chose to add the "Tastes" section, to offer more range with some small plates. This section offers sixteen different items priced from $10-$16 for soup to salad to $15-$37, the $37 being the brown butter lobster roll. A full page of menu offerings from our Raw Bar range from $7-$25 (32 offerings at this time), with an Omakase Platter for $63. The entree section has offerings from $28-$58 (11 of which are at $49 or less) then we offer a 14 oz wt. New York Striploin Steak for $68, a Filet Mignon and Lobster for $87, King Crab Merus for $90, and then The Japanese "A5" Full Blood Wagyu New York Striploin Steak for $135, I believe this last choice may have been mistaken for a regular New York Striploin Steak, the $135 for the 6oz A5 Wagyu Steak is actually a very fair price. I believe that you may have misread the price on this steak as it is $135 and the closest price on the menu to the $165 New York Striploin Steak that you mention in the review. We are always working to be better and its guests like your self that help us discover where we can be better. Thank you again for your feedback. Sincerely, Chef John Howie
The food was very good, and the service was outstanding. We were a large party, and the staff did an excellent job taking care of us. We will definitely return to Seastar.
Great place, always very fresh fish and excellent flavor.
The food at Seastar is fantastic. This was the first time I had ever had swordfish where it just melts in your mouth. Not a disappointing dinner with my husband. Service as always was great.
Cool spot in Bellevue, but you certainly pay for it. Food prices are really high and alcohol prices even higher.
The food and service are great, the only thing holding this restaurant back from being 5 stars in the pricing.....oh and also the noise. It is a very loud restaurant.
Seastar is a fantastic place for dinner. Although I am not a seafood person, everyone in our party of ten loved the seafood towers - we had a few of the different ones offered. The meals were all delicious, no complaints from any of our party. And as the person always trying to find the non-seafood option, Seastar had a nice variety of options for me. The steak I had was amazing, cooked beautifully, and did not disappoint. Great venue and we were very well cared for by the team.
Seastar is where we go to celebrate important occasions and we've never been disappointed.
Great atmosphere and food is amazing. Will come back again.
Food was good as usual, but very put off by the 20% service charge that is added to the bill, but not given to the service staff. We were a group of eight. Service was good, but not excellent as it has been in the past. I think we will look elsewhere to hold department events in the future.
Best place to dine when you want really great food!
Good Japanese-inspired food, good cocktails. However, a little bit expensive.
Had a wonderful dinner and great service great restaurant enjoyed our evening
always have a good meal at your restaurant.
I always order a martini with blue cheese stuffed olives and have never been charged extra for them. Now you are charging an extra amount per olive- I think that this is ridiculous especially when we are already paying a very nice amount to eat at your restaurant!
The Ahi Tuna entree was not only delicious, but spectacular in presentation.
Start with their Hot & Sour soup. I would live in their kitchen to have that daily. Mahi- Mahi we ate twice that week. As we (party of 8) all agreed to go back a second night.
The service was amazing. The setting was perfect and the food was better than I could of imagined. Even shared coconut cream pie. Will be back soon
Love Seastar. I’m never disappointed here. Food, ambiance and service are excellent.
We went to celebrate my sister’s Birthday. Several years earlier we threw my mother’s 70th birthday party there and thoroughly enjoyed everything. The food this time was just average — very disappointing.
I have visited your restaurant for many years and I believe it is great.
What I don’t lie or appreciate is the fact that “ gratuity” is added to the total of the bill, even for a table of three. You can’t call it gratuity is you add it to the total, that is a Sevices charge! I personally took it as a message that “I am not trusted as a costumer to leave what you have decided, not me, what is the right amount for a tip.
The service was great, my complaint is about your policy.
Fantastic birthday meal. We were quickly seated and offered drinks. Menu choices were outstanding and food was delicious. Great service and a free birthday dessert!
Beautiful place, discovered a new wine, great staff and really exceptional meal. Thank you
Food was incredible!
Wonderful place making this my go to for a good night out
