With the access we have for premium ingredients from the surrounding water Seattle deserves a better seafood restaurant.
We looked forward to eating at Blueacre after reading the menu of the great ingredients. What a disappointment! The host was cold and unwelcoming when we came in for our 7:30 reservation and it went down hill from there.
Our waiter butchered the foil on the wine bottle and proceeded to wipe the sediment from the rim with her bare fingers. Totally un-hygenic and uncouth to say the least but we figured Ok the alcohol will kill any germs.
The razor clams came smothered in batter so that we can't tell if we are eating deep fried rubbery something or other.
Next came the calamari, again heavily battered with sauteed vegetables. Taste exactly like "Deep fried squid with vegetables" at a chinese restaurant in the I.D.
The "Lump blue crab cake" followed which was overly salted and metallic tasting, a sure indication of old canned crab meat.
Last came the "Alaskan scallops" tasting of old grease on the griddle.
The potential of a great seafood restaurant in Seattle has been wasted.
Unfortunately Blueacre is just diner food dressed up in fancy clothing.
We have eaten at restaurants all over the US, Europe and Asia and must say this is the worst meal in a high end restaurant that we have ever had!
Needless to say we will not go back.
