I think you are getting down to some good choices. Of this group I have eaten the most at Seastar. You can do either Seattle or Bellevue. Palisade is another option and is located in Elliot Bay marina which you might like. Chandlers Crabhouse on Lake Union is also a good option.

I'd second Palisade. Overlooks the marina and looks back at downtown Seattle.
Salty's in West Seattle is good. Also looks across at downtown Seattle.

Save your sushi appetite for Vancouver. Some of the best sushi there. On or around Robson St. there's some really good places.

A lot depends on your budget and what you'd expect for that amount. "Cool, happening" restaurants would be places like Revel, Madison Park Conservatory, Lark, Sitka & Spruce. South Lake Union is a recent development that has several restaurants that might be worth checking out. When in Vancouver, there are so many choices.....Miami probably does not have much of a Chinatown, but Richmond (just outside of Vancouver) is probably the second largest "Chinatown" outside of China and you really should go have Dim Sum in one of the many restaurants on No. 3 Rd. In downtown Vancouver, there's the Japadog (hot dog stand showcased on Travel Channel show) for something different. Enjoy!

If you like oysters, I'd recommend Elliotts on the waterfront pier 56 http://www.elliottsoysterhouse.com/[
Fresh local oysters, usually 10-15 different varieties. Great beer, and wine selections.

Up the waterfront, pier 69 for dinner to Anthonys.

Outstanding fresh seafood. Right next to a marina, over the hill from Pike's market.

Man, Seattle is a great place for food!

do space needle if weather is clear. Rock museum pretty cool if you are moderately interested in music. I hear the underground tour is really cool-we dint do it because kids too young for it.

We ate on waterfront-1 place had 15 different oysters that was good Elliots was the name. Ivars was not the great, good but not worth the hype.

There was a french pastry place by pikes market near the original starbucks that my wife really liked.

We took a plane ride taking off from the sleepless in seattle lake-that was cool also. landing on water with all the boats operating was cool

Ah,
YES, Elliots, not Emmetts.. Fixed links above. Love the happy hour there. Come to think of it, the happy hours are all pretty awesome in Seattle.

Those are good places and not touristy one bit. Real food there but not for the light hearted.

Try the Sandbar on Granville Isl in Vancouver, easy water taxi from downtown. Also in Stanley park the Fishouse is good, or the Tea House(funny name but upscale).

Carderos is also a good restaurant in Van on the water.

Great fish and chips in Steveston "Pajos"

\\\Good Luck

Default If you have an extra couple of days

If you have a couple extra days you should think about catching the ferry from Vancouver to Vancouver Island ( Nanaimo ) then take the scenic drive to Tofino, the beaches are miles of sand it's Canada's surfing hot spot. Both Tofino and Ucluelet are on the same coast and the national park separates the two destinations. There are many fine dining restaurants and several 4 & 5 star resorts. I put a couple resources below to check out.
