Excellent experience.....Always have a great experience while eating here....6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceI came across 18 Seaboard on Tripadvisor and was immediately impressed to see all the great options for dinner. Being a picky eater I rarely see more then one item that interests me and was happy there were so many choices. Food was great, drinks were perfect, and desserts were special and delicious. The best part of our whole experience was the great service we received. Hostesses were friendly as soon as we walked in and our waiter was great from beginning to end. Even the manager went around talking to everyone which was a nice and sincere touch. Will be returning and would highly recommend.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary celebrationAlways the place to celebrate and mark a milestone!

They are friendly, attentive, and responsive to any request.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat surprise!My husband and I enjoyed our dinner at 18 Seaboard very much. I don't think the open table pics do it justice. It is an elegant, tucked- away place. We had excellent service from Jen. I had the wood fired trout and my husband had the swordfish. Both were delicious, along with surprisingly fresh-tasting sides. The rhubarb turnover was a terrific end to our meal.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMyou can count on always a great meaWonderful service from when you walked in the door. Food is always plentiful and delicious.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMSuper ExperienceTook my wife and her parents to 18 Seaboard for my wife's birthday.

Highly recommend and will be back.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMIT'S THE BEST!!!I recently took my husband there for his birthday, and everything was perfect! From the food to the service & ambience, everything was "top-notch". Our server, Jen, very aptly described, and recommended, dishes that were exactly as she said. You can never go wrong when dining at 18 Seaboard! Jason, the owner, personally delivered a birthday cake to us, and was very congenial, and wanted to assure that our meal & experience was satisfactory. If you've never been to 18 Seaboard, try it.......it won't disappoint!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat First Impression of RaleighIt was my first time to Raleigh, and I'm very glad I decided to eat at 18 Seabord. The atmosphere was warm and energetic. The food was great. There were so many items that sounded delicious so it was hard to choose. In the end, the ribeye was pretty amazing- cooked perfectly with a great hickory flavor. We were treated with an amuse bouche before the meal and our service was top notch throughout. I would recommend this restaurant to any of my friends visiting Raleigh.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything you want in a restaurantWe were there to celebrate a graduation. Had catfish which was over the top - others had soft shell crab special which was delicious. Service was perfect - helpful, friendly, prompt, but not bothersome. We sat in a booth - quiet and private. Loved it!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBeg if you have to...Jason Smith took excellent care of us again. He's the nicest person and knows how to run a kitchen (with a great staff). We had a very enjoyable meal and tried a good sample of the menu. The soft shelled crabs were excellent. I love those sweet nuggets of crab meat, one of the best treats you can have. And the bacon marmalade with the BBQ shrimp -- that's a new favorite. The chef sent out tastes of a pobano cucumber soup, you should beg him to do the same for you.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat!Why do I always forget this place? Need to put it in the rotation of my favorite Raleigh places.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentAs a disclaimer, I travel weekly for business and I eat out at the best restaurants in any given town 2-3 nights a week. Even though I live in Raleigh I hadn't heard of 18 Seaboard - perhaps because I avoid Tyler's Tap Room (the neighbor) at all costs.
The food was very good with a southern flair (i.e. cracklin pork), the ambiance was great and the noise level was perfect. Perhaps most impressive, the service was truly excellent. I'd even go so far as to say generous! The GM (Bryan) ensured we had a great experience. He even went so far as to bring by various items we didn't order so we could try them. Very nice.
I highly recommend 18 Seaboard. Tell your friends.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMTop Notch Food and ServiceThis was our third time to this restaurant and we are continually impressed. I am a very selective person when it comes to food and I have to say our meal was cooked to a very high level. It was presented well and quite tasty. The manager was making rounds through the dining room offering suggestions, making sure everyone was happy, and serving small bits directly from the chefs to "wet" the appetite. I love this place and will be going back soon.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMEach bite exquisite!We felt relaxed as if in our own home having a birthday dinner party. The presentation of the special salad for the day was poetic and each bite exquisite. The waiter catered to our every need! I highly recommend 18 Seaboard!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMIndividual AttentionRestaurant is accomodating in putting together a special plate of my favoite items from the menu.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA delightful Mother's Day Brunch!Thank you for serving brunch on Mother's Day!

Great food every time.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappoints, Always home run!Sunday Brunch, dinner for two, family celebration...18 Seaboard has become our go to spot. Every meal is perfection. Snead Ferry Soup (light on crab but it's early in the season) is to die for, fried green tomatoes are best in area. Cat fish, pastas are tasty and anything Wood grilled melts in your mouth. Service is impeccable!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing service and great food!18 Seaboard have fantastic services since the first moment I stepped in the restaurant. The waitress who greeted us feel very personable and sociable. The food is amazing e.g. the scallops and swordfish we ordered were cooked exactly right and tasty. They even prepared a free graduation cake when I told them we are celebrating the graduation of my son.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious, a little overpricedThe food was good but not outstanding. All of the proteins were cooked to perfection in our table of 6. The vegetables were over-cooked and bland (spinach and bok choy). We tasted a little bit of everything and ate from each other's plates. Both the she-crab soup and the blue crab hoppin' john could contain more crab. Pork shank was delicious. Beef tartare appetizer was to die for. Everyone was happy with the food. Desserts were super yummy, but nothing was innovative.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulWent for my graduation dinner. We mentioned that to the waiter, and they brought us a free dessert. The meal itself was wonderful. The pork shank was probably the best pork I ever had.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWowI went to 18 Seaboard for my graduation dinner and it was the best decision. The ambiance is nice and the food is amazing! Everyone at my table got fish and cleaned their plate. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Restaurant and Atmosphere18 Seaboard has excellent staff who are polite and who find time for you even when it's busy. The food is superb. The tables are separated nicely and the darker lighting gives it an "up-scale" sensation.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and Superb serviceWe could not have chosen a better place to celebrate my daughter's graduation from pharmacy school. The atmosphere was wonderful and every dish we ordered was better than the next. They provided a celebratory dessert with "congratulations" written in chocolate on the plate. It was beautiful. Highly recommend.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday dinnerWe ordered a bottle of wine for the table; pinot nior that was fantastic! Service was spectacular!!! I ordered a steak to share with my sone (who is a year old), and it was very tasty! We ordered the lamb belly for an appetizer, which my husband LOVED. The entire staff was very understanding and friendly to our one year old who was getting a little tired of being there after a while, and I didn't feel like we were rushed at all to get out of there or nervous if we needed walk him around. Its definitely a nicer restaurant that I would highly recommend, but its also a place to take the kids if they're good eaters. We will certainly be going back!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMUp on the RoofEnjoyed a comfortable May evening on the roof deck overlooking the Raleigh skyline. We do not usually dine outdoors and found the experience at 18 Seaboard a real treat. Our personable server, Brandy, provided perfect service, and everyone at our table raved about their food. This was our first visit to 18 Seaboard, and we can't wait to return.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousYummy food, great service, and loved the atmosphere!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant is consistentlyThis restaurant is consistently good.
