Blueacre Restaurant is Getting Popular

It's been open for about a year and the cavernous restaurant space that used to be empty most nights is now regularly populated with hungry diners.  But the bar is the place to be....

Location: 8th & Olive, downtown, opposite Pacific Place and near the Paramount, which makes it a good spot for pre/post theater or cinema munching.
Atmosphere:  Buzzier than it used to be. The bar is always busy and if there are just a couple of you, a more exciting place to be.
Service: Consistently good
Food: Plenty of good value sharing style dishes, heavy on fish and seafood but not exclusive.  Portion sizes are generous for the money.
Drink: Plenty of local brews on tap and some excellent value wines by the glass. They also do some mean cocktails.
Happy hour: Yes, until 6pm and if you smile sweetly they'll extend it a few minutes to squeeze in that extra order.
Price: Good value for money, considering the quality and size of the dishes. OK, I'll be more specific - around $9 for a plate to share.
