Blueacre Seafood Ratings and Reviews

My husband and I ate their on vacation. We consider ourselves "foodies" and this restaurant hit the mark. I had salmon, he had cod. We ate from the prix fix and it was quite a bargain. We would definitely recommend it.

I ordered off of the summer three-course menu and the amount of food I received was perfect! I had the hot smoked wild Alaskan salmon, the parmesan crusted Alaskan ling cod, and the warm peach buckle. It was all delicious!
Our main course was accidentally delivered to a different table, so our server gave us a bowl of chowder to hold us over until a new order of cod was ready. This small act of customer service went a long way!

Seriously disappointed. $250 for a meal for 2 that lasted less than an hour? Our entrees were somehow brought out within 10 minutes of placing our order - ahead of our appetizers. When we told the server that they couldn't be for us, because we just ordered and we're waiting for our oysters, we were told they were indeed for us. They took the entrees back and placed them under lamps or something to keep them warm while we had our appetizers. You could tell they were not freshly prepared when thy were finally served to us. We had been to Blueacre previously and always liked it, but we will it be back.

We've eaten here before and normally love the ambiance. The food and service was great. However, we were seated in the bar area for lunch at a booth and there was a swarm of flies high above us, while we only had the occasional one swoop down from time to time, it was rather disgusting, that's why I rated ambiance only 3 stars. Get the flies out of there you guys for a perfect dining experience.
The fish we ordered was extremely fresh ...
The fish we ordered was extremely fresh and cooked to perfection. Nice balance of textures and flavors. We arrived at 7:00 and the restaurant was filled with mostly elderly people but by around 7:30 or so, a good mix of people came in, and the tables were all lively with conversation. The (oyster) bar looked like it would be a fun spot to eat.

This restaurant was close to our hotel, so we decided to try it. I started off with several oysters on the half shell and the Alaska Razor clam chowder. In truth, it was good, but I have had much better chowder, especially on this trip. My companion had the house salad. For the main course, we ordered the Dungeness crab stuffed Petrale sole and the pan seared Alaskan halibut. Both were excellent. Our server was attentive and quite helpful in our choices.

We had looked at the menu online and thought it looked good. The price point made us think it would be a fancier dinner for a date. The atmosphere I'm sure would be more suitable for lunch. It had some cool modern aspects but was a little diner-like. The fish and chips and scallops were disappointing. We really wanted to like it but it was a fail. The service was lacking as well. Definitely won't go back.
Caused by special circumstances we had ...
Caused by special circumstances we had a reservation for 4 p.m., and even for me it's not clear if that's a late lunch or an early dinner. However, that doesn't justify the service experience which I believe is heavily influenced by the automatic addition of a 20% charge to the bill: No waiter for 15 min until somebody finally cared about us, then another waitress after the order for the drinks were placed (which couldn't be delivered because they were sold out) , and no more care after the order for the food was accepted because everybody seemed busy with rearranging tables and chairs for a larger party.
The Oysters we started with were excellent. We choose the three course dinner with swordfish and petrale sole as mains - were good with an excellent price-value ratio, same for the dessert.
Overall a mixed experienced - great food, not so great service.

I chose the salad, entree and dessert option. Good value. Had the petrole sole in brown butter. Good dish. Watermelon salad tasty as well.
The mango Panna cotta was gelatinous and I and my table mates had one bite each.
One other thing... The napkin in our bread basket had either ketchup or seafood sauce on it. We didn't have any of those sauces so ergo the napkin was dirty prior to us ! Yuck!

Was in Seattle with friends who didn't eat seafood, so as soon as they left I headed right for this restaurant. The food and menu choice were excellent. Feasted on Manila clams in a spicy jalapeño broth ( to die for ), then a Dungeoness crab. It was definitely worth the wait. Unbeknownst to us we had eaten at The chef owner's 2 other restaurants , the Steelhead Diner and his Italian restaurant Orfeo. All three restaurants we just incredible food wise. Service at the diner and Orfeo was just terrible. But he hit a home run with Blueacre‼️

We dined at Blueacre twice while in Seattle - once on our own (I had the angry dungenss crab), and later that week with a food tour/progressive dinner group (we had Alaskan salmon - fantastic). Great spot if you want a lot of seafood to select from for your main entree!

I ordered the salmon (amazing) and my husband ordered the swordfish. Hands down the best prepared swordfish of all time. Everything about the food was flavorful and made with quality in mind. Will definitely be back. Service excellent as well. Loved it.

Rather expensive for the quality and limited menu. They had 3 choices for enter on their 3 course menu with one sold out by 7:30 pm. Fish was just okay and was served on a zucchini patty that was too salty to eat.

My husband and I were in the Seattle area and checked Trip Advisor for restaurants with fresh oysters on the half shell and good fish. This restaurant was recommended and worth the drive from Federal Way! The oysters tasted like they were just havested for us! Sweet, right size, with a hint of salt ! Fabulous! Our entrees were just as excellent having sole and local salmon. It will cost you $16.00 to park, if you are lucky in the parking lot across the street from the restaurant. We would recommend this restaurant to friends and family!

We ate here I our first night of our Seattle vacation. The salmon was excellent quality and preperation. The service was impeccable. Our server had an excellent knowledge of both the menu and the local beers. We are thinking of squeezing in one more visit before it's time to return to California.
