    This is a restaurant for meat lovers. There was only one seafood item on the entrees. The white wine was not very cold and they did not have any ice buckets! There were many empty tables, yet they told walkins there was an hour wait for a table.

    SEAR was good. We enjoyed our meal and the ambiance was really nice. The service was good, but didn't break any records. The music was a little too loud, but not disruptive. You could sit and eat and not know other diners were present. The size allows for spacious seating arrangements and the noise is just enough to cover up other conversations.

    The price was more than what the food was really worth. We were expecting a little more people to be in the restaurant. The ambiance was very memorable, but the waiters seem to hate to have to work as if they were not use to it. Don't think we'll be back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP
    Dined on 6/13/2008
    Food-I had the fish of the day-scallops-which were very flavorful; to be considered outstanding they needed to be cooked a minute or so less. The colossal asparagus lived up to their description, very tasty. The twice baked potato wasn't described as colossal, but could have fed at least 2 people; well prepared. Ambience-very nice. Several booths surrounding the center of the floor made for more intimate dining, & tables were in the center as well as outside the booths. Filmy fabric also created separations while letting light & air through. The kitchen was open for viewing; the feel was modern-dark floors, clean lines. When I arrived, I waited several minutes to be seated, as did another guest. Table service was okay but not great.

    Everything was amazing. Food, wait staff, ambiance was worth the price. The only thing I wish was that more than two crab cakes came out in the appetizer; they were so good I wanted at least two more. It's in my top ten for the city for sure.

    My lunch reservations was work related and setting and atmosphere was great. We were able to meet and enjoy our working lunch. I would recommend SEAR to co-workers, family and friends. The only comment I have and it concerns the bowl that the salad bowl dish was served in as it provided a small challenge in that you had to hold your bowl to keep it from tipping over. The food was excellent and only the serving dish was challenging.

    Dined on 5/22/2008
    VERY Good strip steak, tasty, cooked perfectly. However the tuna was overcooked and incipid. Disappointing wine list for an 'up scale' establishment. Staff were attentive, and there when you needed them but not very engaging. Seemed just to be there to do their jobs. (e.g. did not ask why we left the tuna, no smiles or polite conversation). I would go back due to it's location in the Hotel, but not for a 'special occasion' experience.

    SEAR Was a wonderful atmosphere and the food was actually pretty good. We actually stayed at the Marriott so it was a great perk to the hotel. Some "hotel" food is very pricey and not very tasty! SEAR offered both tasty and great pricing!

    We came for Administrative Professionals Week and we had a wonderful time. I made the reservation onine, sent out evites and when we got there they took us right to our table. We were very impressed and the the ambiance was beautiful. Our food was great and the dessert was awesome. The only thing we were not happy with was our server. She was trying but she just could not get it together. All in all we had a wonderful time! Thank you for everything!

    The server was good, the food was ok but we felt we didn't fit the normal client profile that they felt they should serve. I called for reseervations and was told they were all blocked for Saturday. I got reservations online and when we got to the restraunt maybe 1/3 of it was full. Why exactly was I told no openings??? And we felt ignored most of the night.

    Food was fair to good, but overpriced. There was no bartender on duty, so the waitress had to make the drinks. That's unusual. The meal was good but very forgetable. With some work they could be very good, but there is no atmosphere to speak of, sorry.
