Blueacre Seafood Ratings and Reviews

I treated a friend to "Restaurant Week" lunch there last week. The food was tasty, service was just so-so, ambiance for luncheon setting was nice. (I realized immediately that it was the old Oceannaire restaurant). What I highly resented was the 20% service charge that was automatically added to my tab. Two restaurant week lunches at $18, 1 glass of wine $9 and my total bill was $59! If I had known Blueacre participated in this practice, I would not have chosen it. I will never go back!

Very slow service and clinical ambience was offset by high quality food. The halibut cheeks were divine and perfectly cooked. The prices make one suck one's breath in a little, but in town for a night it is worth splurging.

It was a great evening with a friend that lives in Seattle. I was visiting from Alaska, always good to return to this wonderful restaurant. Bill, the Manager is a good friend & always takes care of me when I visit.

Before making a reservation at Blueacre, I read many reviews online. Many of them were positive, comending the great food. However many others were very negative centering around the bad service. We decided to go anyways and were pleased we did. We arrived early so we sat at the bar and enjoyed well made drinks before our table was ready. The reservation was for 8 o'clock, we were seated at about 8:10-8:15. Before we even had time to settle into our seats we were greeted by a server apologizing for the wait and saying there was a complimentary appetizer on the way. I can't speak for anyone else but the service our table received was above average bordering on great. And it goes without saying the food was fresh, clean, and delicious! Definitely recommend.

We made a reservation and were a little disappointed to be seated in the bar area instead of the main dining room, but the place was full, which we thought was a good sign. Food and drinks were okay. Service was attentive and friendly. Desserts were great. The problem is when the bill came. There is a 20 % "service charge" added onto the bill. We were a group of 3, so this was not the gratuity added for large groups. The fine print also says only 60% of the service charge goes to the service staff. That means the restaurant is adding 8% onto your bill for themselves. If you need to raise prices, then raise your prices. Padding the bill at the end made us feel like we were being screwed over by the restaurant.

Food was delicious. One of the two entrees that was delivered to the table was wrong.The waiter comped both entrees since we had a delay in our meals. Very nice of the establishment to do. LOvely open and big room. Have eaten here about 6 times and meals have always been terrific.

Seated 30 minutes late. Complaints heard from tables beside us. Wait times for food 30-40 minutes. Ordered side literally 3 minutes after main and never came. Food is still 4 star, but management is going downhill. Have eaten here many times, starting to decline unfortunately.

I was looking forward to having fresh seafood in Seattle and Blueacre was such a disappointment! I had the sole stuffed with crab. The fish was barely warm and tasted like it had come from frozen. The stuffing was bready and had no crab flavor at all! My partner had the fish and chips. The "chips" were no better than McDonald's fries. I would not recommend this place.

When visiting Seattle, we always make time to have meals at Blueacre Seafood. The seafood is great as well as desserts. The staff is friendly and engaging and knowledgeable about the menu and wine. I would highly recommend this to anyone for a stop by.

Not family friendly...We like this restaurant. We had been there before. So we made our reservation quite happily. However, when we arrived, we were hustled back through a maze of tables in the main dining area into a nook. Inside the nook were 3 tables. At one table sat a family with 3 children. And then us. Oh yea, we had our 7 year old daughter with us. Apparently, despite having a children's menu, complete with crayons, this is not a "family friendly" restaurant. The tables in our nook were laminate, no table cloths. We were hidden over by the edge of the bar where the servers interact with the bartender. Thus, lots of swearing. We felt like pariahs and will never go back, no matter how much i love the cod.

They charged 20% for tips ..but the service was not worth for that!! The waitress was not friendly and professional..we were waiting 30munites for the first course ..which was not busy hours ..11:45 am just opened the door.. If they charged 20% for tips for sure! Please be professional and height in stander !

What a great place for an informal dinner . We were in the mood for simple dishes: fish and chips and a burger. Both were done perfectly. I appreciate they use high quality Painted Hills beef. Their sidecar cocktail was perfectly done. It is helpful that they validate parking.

I eat here regularly, but my dinner on Friday, September 9, was disappointing. The main course of a King Crab Carbonara was ruined by excessive Thyme. When I complained to the maitre-d, he reported it to the kitchen and the chef said that there was no Thyme in the recipe. However, upon his examination, he found that a sous-chef had indeed sprinkled Thyme on the dish. The restaurant removed the cost of the dish from my bill, without my asking for it. Normally here the food is very good to superb, and mistakes can be made. Excellent service and a professional chef have restored my faith in Blueacre Seafood.

Totally bland carbonara, that actually appeared to be mislabeled fettuccine - overpriced for the quality. King crab was decent, but said $50 on menu and we were billed $70 with no explanation. Cheap, tacky tables and chairs that degrade the atmosphere. Feels very touristy.

Absolutely fabulous and creative seafood! The salmon with port soaked cherries, almonds, and brown butter was incredible and the halibut with carrot puree was great as well! Some of the best seafood we've had. Will definitely return when we are in Seattle.

Sadly, I'm going to have to stop recommending this place. I have been dining here since it opened (after the old Oceannaire) closed down. The last several visits have not been up to par and this evening was no exception. The food last night was mediocre (the crab stuffing for the Petrale Sole was 95% bread crumbs), the Fruit Buckle had maybe three berries in it and was mostly dough, and the service was rushed and unimpressive. About the only thing that was OK was the Corn Fritters for an appetizer.

Felt a little rushed with our servers, kept wanting to take our order, however the food made up for it. great selection of oysters, server very knowledgeable about the various kinds on the menu . wife's halibut a little dry but my salmon was the best I had tasted on our two week vacation to Alaska and Seattle. would go back if ever in the area again
I was very disappointed. They were out ...
I was very disappointed. They were out of half of the oysters in their selection. Then the waiter couldn't get our wine order right 3 different times. When the oysters came, it was the wrong selection. Then it took them almost 10 minutes to make a mignonette. The food was good but for the price, I don't know. And then they charge you an automatic 20% gratuity. I left not wanting to come back.
