    Service was absolutely brutal, 20 minutes for my drink . I went with 3 other ppl. 2 of us got their food 25 minutes before the other 2 got their food. Absolutely ridiculous . Never coming back here again. The bartenders and the dj were the bright spots. The kitchen and the staff are incompetent.

    I love love loved the ambiance! The food was ok, but I was slightly disappointed with the service. We asked several wait staff for assistance at our table before getting what we were asking for about 15 minutes later. I would go back since that's the only time I've been with a service mishap.

    I have been to Sea before, but this visit didn't live up to my previous visit! I had to actually flag down a waitress to take our order after waiting for some time. I used to go to the location in Meatpacking before they moved and it was one of our favorite date spots. We came for lunch at this location on a Sunday afternoon and they were understaffed.

    Atmosphere: The atmosphere at SEA is really fun. We were able to sit by the interior pond in the front for a really lovely table. Very beautiful. Club music was slightly too loud for comfortable conversation, but still pretty fun. Food: I had a T-Bone steak and my girlfriend had duck. The duck was fine, nothing exciting. The steak, one side of the bone was fantastic, the other half was inedible. We had some bubble drinks that were tasty, but the bubbles were tough and not great tasting. We had Crab Rangoon for an appetizer and it was fine. It was cheaper than I expected given the location and how many people had recommended the place. But We were both surprised and disappointed at how mediocre it was for the hype.

    This is my 2nd time coming to SEA. Last time I came with co-workers and we tried a bunch of different appetizers and foods. This occasion I went with my boyfriend, who has never been to SEA, and this did not leave a lasting impression on him. I ordered Triangle Curry Puffs and chicken and shrimp dumplings. Those were great! I ordered the seafood combo (which had sweet and sour sauce) and my bf ordered the sweet & sour chicken. We both agreed the sauce wasn't that great and I regularly eat Thai food. The drinks we had were great and the dessert I ordered (Green tea cheesecake) was good. The service wasn't that great. There were 3 different waiters taking orders. I'm not sure if this is the norm here or not but it was frustrating.

    Thai food is our favorite food. We are well-versed in the flavors. This food at Sea was bland. It literally had no flavor which is odd for Thai food. I asked for fish sauce to add flavor to my Tom Kha soup and was told there was no fish sauce in the restaurant-- a Thai food staple ingredient! On top of that, I had to ask numerous staff memners for each request as they all seemed to be playing broken telephone instead of just getting me a lime that I asked for. Finally, both me and another member of my party got the same dish. Hers, however, was literally double the size of mine. Both were nice portions of food but it was very strange to see such a huge inconsistency. Our server, Tu, was the only good part of this dining experience.

    The hostess gave us the table I had requested next to the pond. It took a while for the server to even greet us…when he came over he didn't introduce himself or ask how we were doing. No pleasantries whatsoever, just simply asked us if we were ready to order. We ordered the Basil Spring rolls and the Green Seafood Wonton for appetizer. Both were..meh. Small portions and the wonton were undercooked and really chewy. For entree we ordered the Drunk Man Noodles and the Panang curry. The noodles were awesome and the highlight of our meal. I wish I had just ordered two of the noodles because the curry was awful: way too salty with only about 6 bites worth of veggies and shrimp. Couldn't even eat it at all. Server never asked how our food was.

    I enjoy the vibe of this restaurant with the pond in the center, mood lighting, and unique seating arrangements. The food is well-prepared and moderately priced for standard thai food. The food also came out super fast. We had a bit of a back and forth with our server though because we ordered 2 x brown rice for an extra charge and were given 2 scoops of brown rice and 2 scoops of white rice on a plate and were told "that is what ordering brown rice means" which seemed like a rip-off and also is flat out not what we asked for.

    I've been to SEA a few times for dinner and decided to try it on a Sunday afternoon. Of course the atmosphere is much different from the evening, which is expected. The service was ok, we had to wait for a host to be seated, when she finally greeted us, the phone rang and we were left standing for 2 minutes until another host came over. I had the Massaman curry lunch special, it was ok, but nothing I would come back for. My mom ordered a dish, which she did not like and when she requested to order something else, the waitress kept asking why she did not like it and rudely said that if she orders another dish and does not like it, she will have to pay. Wow. Good value for the lunch special, but I'm in no hurry to go back.

    We went for a Monday dinner in a group of nine, having had excellent, placid experiences at lunch twice before. The music blared so loud that we had to yell even to converse with those right next to us, and group conversation was impossible. The forced yelling throughout the place doubled the totally unnecesary sense of chaos. Fine food and service, but an exhausting experience never to be repeated, even as a couple.

    Cool decor. It was super easy to make a reservation for 5 on a Monday night. The restaurant is ridiculously dark, but luckily we were sat at the big wooden tables with good lighting. Portions were more than enough. Curry was great. Food came quickly and servers were wonderful. FYI they don't seat your party until everyone's there... even if half the restaurant is empty.

    Good food and nice ambiance. However the service was just ok. The Hostess asked us to wait after confirming my reservation and forgot about us. Some empty seats became available and once we moved to those seat to be in her sight she then remembered. The waitress had many tanles to tend to so service was a bit slow. Overall it was nice, great layout and we made the best of it and enjoyed dinner.

I would say that the overall dining experience was ok. i ordered the jumbo shrimp and had a total of 5 shrimp and veggies with a plate full of gravy. not very appetizing. the music was so loud i had to scream across the table but the ambiance was friendly.
