Seattle or Bellevue SeaStar?

I've been given a gift certificate that works at either. I've never been to either. I see they have different menus. Anyone been to both? Do you have a preference to one over the other and if so, why?

  1. Yes. Seattle. Location is prettier and it is in Seattle not Bellevue, and the staff is better. Not much better - just better. Also it is a little quieter. Bellevue's gets rather loud. But both are good.

    1. I didn't realize the menu's were that noticeably different. I feel as though I've had a better experience at the Bellevue location, but at least one of times I went to the Seattle one, it was during restaurant week, so maybe that's not fair.

      1. I've been to both quite a bit. I definitely prefer the atmosphere in Bellevue. Somewhat bigger, lighter and more active. Seattle is too reserved but food at both is good.
