THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED O/8 Seafood Grill Restaurant Review

: Hardly seeming like a hotel restaurant, yet part of the Hyatt Regency Bellevue, the intimate O/8 Seafood Grill sits behind the lively Twisted Cork Wine Bar. An exhibition kitchen dominates the lower, dimly lit dining room, while a brighter mezzanine hosts larger parties. A limited seafood-centric menu offers Asian flair but holds few surprises. Notable starters include the Dungeness crab cake, round pillows packed with nutty crab meat delightfully matched with the crunch of julienned Fuji apple and a mild curry aïoli. Crispy wontons are tops for scooping up mounds of ahi poke laced with shiso, ginger and ponzu in a pleasing sensation of textures and tastes. For main courses, we recommend delicate black cod perched on a square of savory mushroom bread pudding. The cedar plank-roasted wild salmon is served near naked so the oil-rich flavor of the fish shines through. For carnivores, the blackened rib-eye lacks the expected coffee-spice rub edge, but is tasty enough topped with crispy fried onions. Of the vast international wine list---some 300-odd wines long---about 75 are offered by the glass or in two-ounce tastes, including Champagnes and dessert wines. Service is attentive, but often rote. As the designated hotel restaurant, O/8 also serves breakfast and lunch.
