    Blueacre is right downtown - only tried it once but had great seafood there. Owned by same owners as Steelhead Diner (which is also downtown in Pike Place mkt. Also, probably better is Anchovies and Olives in Capital Hill - not far from Downtown.

      Steelhead Diner does great Salmon, a Northwest specialty. Also excellent are the mussels at Maximilliens at the Market. Personally, I think the best seafood dish in the city is the Szechuan crab at Seven Stars restaurant in the International District. (Close to downtown.)

        The Brooklyn (downtown) also does a terrific job with seafood.

          Ray's Boathouse (downstairs). You will have to cab it, but it's good seafood. Other traditional seafood places are Anthony's on the Pier (walkable). More cutting edge, and wonderful, is Flying Fish. I would not recommend the Brooklyn personally, have not been to Blueacre, and have only been to Steelhead once.

            We dined at Anchovies and Olives last month, I highly recommend it! :)

              I went to Matt's in the Market last weekend and had probably the best halibut preparation of my life, with romesco amarillo and fresh fava falafel. Incredible.

              (Runner up would be an exquisitely fresh dish served at the Inn and Ship Bay earlier this year).

                Ettas is a great reliable seafood experience (a Tom Douglas restaruant, so sort of iconic seattle). I have not been to Flying Fish since it moved, but that was alwasy my #1 recommendation for seafood.

                  Matt's in the Market or Etta's would be my top choices. Had yummy oysters at Etta's on Tuesday night and a beautiful whole trout. For dessert, we split the maple cinnamon bread pudding with bacon caramel sauce. It's so good it will melt your mind.

                Oh, and please do not go to Anthony's for your only Seattle meal. It is OK, but you can do better elsewhere (but the view is quite spectacular).
