Automatically add 20% tip to all checks. First wait person was abrupt and distracted; the "assistant" took over and was attentive. Why make tipping automatic? Might as well call it a service charge or increase prices and skip the tip.

My wife & I ate here on our honeymoon. The waiter was rude when my wife denied the wine list since she doesn't drink. Very small dinner portions. Everything is ala carte so don't expect a dinner salad. You won't get one! Left hungry even with dessert which they mixed up our order with someone else's. Would recommend if you have a light appetite, enjoy a long wait for your food & don't mind rude waiters or overpriced dinners.

I have been wanting to go to Blueacre seafood for quite some time now and since we had relatives here for the holiday weekend, it seemed like a great idea. I had the three course lunch, my calamari ceviche was the absolutely wonderful, the petra sole was understated, which was good, since sometimes capers can take over in a dish. Everyone loved the chocolate pecan pie.
We brought a magnum of wine with us and the corkage fee here is very reasonable.

I hate being mean in reviews for restaurants and this time I will not be either. However, I want to let the restaurant and future patrons, that this is a restaurant that has been reviewed pretty well but, my experience was much less than I expected (because of reviews). In short, not so good restaurant, with poor quality food, too expensive, with good service. That was the only highlight of the night: our waiter was very accommodating and nice. We were a party of three; to start our drinks were terrible (this is an understatement !), the mixologist should go back to training. We did not turn them back we drank those as slowly as possible. First course: octopus ceviche... We sent it back. Like I said our waiter was great ! We got instead oysters, these were o.k. Second course, the sole... Sent back! Way too greasy for our taste, they return with the same dish but slightly better. All in all a big dissapoiintment. On top of everything, get this... They charged us 20% tip as service charge! What? You don't even get to say how much was the service worth... They already know.... O.K. I paid, we'll never go back really. Really sad experience...

We were in town for the Thanksgiving holiday and stumbled on a dining deal for the restaurants in the Seattle area. We had a 3 course meal for $33 which was outstanding. The regular menu is quite a bit more expensive. The wine recommended by our server was excellent - I described what I liked and she chose exactly the type of wine that I like.

11/15/2016 First time experience, walked in half an hour early and they placed me at once. Solo a good thing; lunch time was not busy. Crispy Duck spring roll a real treat, had to resist consuming in two bites. Dipping sauce too tasty to ignore, so six bites. Yum! Roasted Beet Salad generous and very well done. I had to stop to save room for for the Manila clams in Purgatory. Well worth the effort, I love clams and this was a generous offering in a delicious broth. The kitchen is not afraid of garlic and they were more than willing to moderate the serrano chiles. Savory heat right in my taste range just made it a great dish. Revolving Door entry and other structural touches suggested an older, vintage business layered with modern flair. Just enjoyed the whole event. Thank you!

Our group went to this restaurant because it was participating in Dine Around Seattle. The menu on offer really was very good. While the food was delicious and well presented and the service was attentive, the evening ended with the shock of the compulsory 20% service charge and tax on top of that.

Service was very poor and definietly not deserving of the mandatory 20% tip applied to the bill.
The server attempted to put the main course on the table while we still eating the appetizers.
Clean cutlery was not provided for the main course - that used for appetizer had been removed.
Had beet salad for a main course with some added crabmeat for $13. Maybe, 3 small shreds of crabmeat found; beets pieces were large chunks that had to be cut to be eaten. Idea of the salad
was good, presentation was not.

This is a favorite of mine for business lunches, as the menu is interesting and ahs enough variety so all tastes can be accommodated. I particularly enjoy the 3-course lunch option. I may not always order it, but I do like variety, and three smaller courses v. one large main is a great option. The seafood is so fresh; if you enjoy shellfish, I recommend trying BlueAcre. On the service, something new to me was the added 20% service charge, a portion of which goes to the server. Our server was great in pointing out the add-on - no double dipping, but I hope this surcharge is representing what would normally be the tip. I would have tipped 20% for the great service, and now I am uncertain that the good service was properly acknowledged. Once all restaurants buy into this idea (and I personally hope they do), I will be less concerned about the servers getting their due.

The wife and I took a local nephew out for dinner on a Sunday night. So the place was not at all busy, therefore quiet, and we had decent attention from our waiter. And the room is attractive. But the kitchen service, put politely, was from hunger. We ordered oysters to share, some salads to share, then an entree for the nephew and chowders for we old-heads, and planned our wine/cocktail sequence accordingly. After an interminable wait, we were brought our salads first, with some hemming and hawing about the oyster-shucker being MIA. To boot, my beet salad was many large chunks of beet with a minimal amount of arugala, and the humboldt fog goat cheese entirely MIA (probably out on a date with the oyster shucker). Absent the piquancy of the missing cheese, and doused with nondescript dressing, the beet salad was a crashing bore - could have been eating beets out of a can. Heck, for the setting and the prices, that insalata was an insult. At some point the oysters came to table and were OK, but you can seriously do better elsewhere in Seattle. Finally the entrees…to be fair, the nephew's parmesan-crusted cod wasn't bad, but the chowders were luke-warm and not much different from Ivar's airport fare. So a glitzy setting, lots of pretense, but ultimately an utter poser. Spend your money elsewhere…The Walrus and Carpenter would devour this heap in a nanosecond.

The appetizers were a bit underwhelming. The soups were great. The entrees were tasty and the seafood fresh. The fish was cooked on the under side, so if you want a well done fish you may have to ask. The sides we ordered were hit and miss. Overall a decent dinner. Don't know that I would rush out again to go there, but I wouldn't avoid it either.

This restaurant is excellent for seafood! We loved everything we had. The drinks were great too. At our table, we had the shrimp and crab tater tots (must have). Two of us ordered from the 3- course menu, an excellent value. I had the lemon ling cod, my friend had the black cod with parmesan crust, and my husband had monk fish from the regular menu. I tasted all and all were excellent. For dessert, we all had pecan pie. It was quite delicious, although very sweet. All in all a wonderful evening.

Go for the happy hour where they have discounted seafood. My standing favorite is the green curry mussels. The bread is very good as well to soak up the broth. My coworker had the fish and chips. Seemed pricey during lunch time to have a $50 lunch without any adult beverages.

Four of us: everyone loved everything they had. In all the yeast we have been going to Blueacre we have never had anything that was less than excellent. BUT, this time our winning streak was ivy. I ordered lemon-basil sorbet, thinking that would be fun: lemon sorbet with basil flavor jazzing it up a little. What a great combination of flavors that would be! However,there was much basil that was here alli I could taste, and ift was too strong. Altogether, a surprising experience at Blueacre.!

My wife and I went to Blueacre to celebrate a special occasion on Saturday. While the food was very good the service was very poor. Our waiter was split between our table of 2 and a table of 8 and he was focused on the table of 8. Each of our servings was brought to the table by a different waiter (salad, entree, dessert) with no continuity. A side dish was not brought with the main course. We were never asked if we wanted another glass of wine or beer. Our water glasses went dry. Blueacre adds the 20% tip to the bill so there was no incentive for the waiter to provide any service other than poor.

We had a very poor experience. They have a concept of "tag team" waiters (i.e. 2 servers working together at a table). The result was 2 separate people wanting to explain the menu, take our drink orders, etc. It was actually amusing at first (with them continually repeating themselves) until we had an issue with our orders - they both disappeared after we explained the issues.
My wife's halibut was raw in the middle, and my entrée was missing an item listed on the menu. They apologized, but did not replace (or even offer to replace) the halibut. On the positive side, the salads where great. Too bad the service and entree's were so poor, given the high cost they charge (and a fixed 20% gratuity).
We won't be back.

It was my husband's birthday week kick off dinner. It was also restaurant week so it was very busy.
The food was very tasty. There was a mix up on the first course, however the server made it right by us. We understand that mistakes occur as it was quite busy that evening.
My only suggestion would be to disclose the 20% service fee in advance. No one likes surprises and it clarifies if it includes a tip for the server. I was confused on how you can tax a service fee though?
Again, the food very tasty and the service was good. I support the $15 minimum wage. It's just the way it's communicated (or not) that makes a difference in understanding.
Thank you for a lovely birthday evening!

I couldn't believe how busy this restaurant was on a Thursday evening. We booked a table at 5:45 and barely got out by 7:30. Thankfully, our server brought dessert before we finished our main course, so we were able to get out on time. The food was very good, though if it hadn't been Restaurant Week it would have been much more expensive.
