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.

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 ...
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 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.

The food was really good but for the ambiance, service, and price, it was overall good. It wasn't a great experience. The server was moderately friendly but not extremely attentive. He had an east coast distancing attitude. My water glass was filled only once, and I had to ask.

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.
