The semi-private area for a group of 8 people was perfect. The seat arrangement allowed everyone to equally participate in the discussions. The food and service was superb.

I thought that the quality had slipped just a smidge since last time I was there. Bread was now a charge, and I thought that the topping on the scallops was unecessarily bitter. They didn't have the Draper Farms chicken which is so delicious. So . . . maybe just a bit of a dip. Still some of the best seafood in town. And, as an attorney, I love the cocktail menu names! So creative!

Made reservations at 8:30 pm. Got there around 8:25 pm. Restaurant was pretty empty which my girlfriend and I expected for a Sunday Night. However it took the host almost 10 mins to greet us. The host stand was empty and I asked the bar and oyster chef multiple times to see if we could get seated. Overall the experience was tarnish from there and we ended up leaving because everything was taking to long.

We were there to celebrate my husband's birthday. The four of us started off with some creative cocktails and crab tater tots which were to die for! All of us ordered seafood and they were excellent. The service was perfect and we had a really great time.

On a Sunday evening at the early hour of 6:45, I was surprised that a highly rated seafood restaurant would be out of lobster except for one. I ordered the lobster for my guest, and had the cod for myself. The cod was nothing special. When it was time to order coffee, the server said they may be out of cream/milk. Thankfully, that was at least not the case. The whole experience was an embarrassment as I had hoped for a wonderful Seattle seafood experience for my guest.

We had visited once before with friends while staying downtown and accidently booked ourselves not remembering till we walked over there. Very pleased we went inside for a couple drinks, oysters and appetizers. Was very pleased with all the food, especially the potato skins on the Happy Hour menu! Excellent all the way around!

I went to to Blueacre for San Valentines.

Overall the experience was ok. The service was kind of slow, not bad but nothing special either.

We ordered an appetizer (crab cake), 2 main entrees (2lb lobster and the katsu Black code and 2 desserts. The entrees and desserts were good, the appetizer was not great.

I would not go back to this restaurant given that the overall experience was just ok. But it’s not a bad place.

This is our second time at Blueacre. It's a very attractive restaurant and the food is excellent. Tonight we had the amazing black cod (which is not cod at all) and the sea scallops. The scallops were perfectly seared. Ask for the sauce on the side...it's delicious, but covers the milder taste of the scallops. (Have it with the potatoes.) The collard greens were the best I've ever had... and I'm from the south. The Sidecar, Prosecco, and even the decaf coffee were all great. And don't miss the bourbon chantilly, cacao nib caramel chocolate pecan pie! Best of all was Tia, who served our dinner, but who was also so friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and efficient. She really helped make our entire dinner very relaxing and enjoyable. We will definitely go back again when we're in Seattle.

Food was only mediocre. Asked for size of various oysters (whether small or large). Waiter actually didn't know-- what he said were large oysters turned out to be smaller oysters, and vice-versa. When I asked for my oysters to be changed, he mumbled something about having to throw them away, so I just took them-- bummer. My Cioppino had a really hot pepper in it-- burned my mouth.

If you are a seafood lover and are visiting Seattle, this is a real gem. Some of the freshest fish I have ever had. Great wait staff. Ask for Dav. Bruce Sturgeon is the GM and runs a fantastic ship. On a recent visit was going to order the mahi mahi which I had before but Dav suggested the sushi grade Ahi Tuna. Huge portion with real wasabi and not the pasty green stuff. My wife had a japanese presentation of black cod which was to die for. Great NW wine list and a surprising number of reds for a seafood venue. The razor clam app needs more clams and less potato. Next time I will take the Gumbo reccomendation. Had the Madwell salad to start and it was one of the best greek style salads. The chocolate pecan pie is to die for and one is enough to share.
