    Dined on 8/23/2014
    We returned to this restaurant because our first experience was exceptional. We were not disappointed. The variety of oysters offered allowed me to try oysters from areas I had not tasted before. They were fresh, tender, perfectly shucked and the garnishments added to their flavor. My wife had their salad that was a special for the evening and it was the best she has ever had. Our entrees were the swordfish and the scallops which were well prepared and tasty. We would order them again. Last but not least was the service. They were attentive and went above and beyond. We left feeling like we had just made a new friend. We'll be back.

    WOW! We thought we would like the restaurant from the write up in Zagat but we had no idea how much we would like it. Every bite was one to savor. The three of us ordered fish, each different, and each superb. The side of creamed spinach was the best ever - and I am a tough critic of creamed spinach. Breads were excellent as was the accompanying spread of marscapone, herbs and more. Wait staff were appropriately attentive but not hovering. This is a real gem!

    The place is elegant, food great - both of us worked to finish each dish - the portions were good sized but not huge. My sword fish was done to perfection, and my sisters seafood mix with pasta was equally yummy. We were celebrating my sisters 72nd birthday. We enjoyed some bubblie - at a reasonable price - and the waiter asked if was a special reason for our dinner, I told him about her birthday. When they brought our desert, they had put a candle on hers. Special but not over the top.

    All four of us ordered seafood even though some of the steak entrees did sound good. We were not disappointed as all four were excellent. This included bass, tuna, bronzini (which was the star) and salmon. The calamari was also fresh and delicious.

    We recently celebrated my wife's birthday at the Sea Fire Grill. The staff and management were very friendly and accommodating and acknowledged my wife and our special event. The service was excellent as provided by James and his supporting cast. My wife's meal (yellow fin tuna) was excellent. I had the American Snapper and although tasty was a bit dry and could have used a better sauce to compliment it. All-in-all we enjoyed the experience.

    Sea Fire Grill was not what I was expecting-- which was upscale and sophisticated and a bit more subdued. You enter a very loud and busy bar scene -- so loud you can't hear each other!!! Asking the hostess, it is an 'after work scene' and has a number of regulars from area offices. The restaurant is in two sections and luckily we were seated in the back section which is quieter, but not quiet. Service is adequate, and food ok. Portions are 'steak house' large. No real complaints about the food, but really nothing special.

    Group of seven for dinner. Had tuna tartar, grilled shrimp, fried calamari, raw oysters and little neck clams, and oyster rockefeller for apps. Entrees of halibut, couple of blackened mahi. couple of bronzino and rib eye steak. All the seafood was excellent but do not order steak here. Even though it was "dry aged prime", does not measure up to Wolfgang or Sparks. Order seafood here, since this is their specialty. Dessert of tiramasu, apple upside down cobbler? , and chocolate molten lava cake was excellent. The waiter was gracious enough to ask if we were celebrating a birthday and gave us a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine for the occasion. We all had wine and lots of different scotch with our meal. Good experience.

    I visited the Sea Fire Grill for the second time in 3 weeks on Thursday and it did not disappoint. Every appetizer and entree that my guest and I have ordered has been outstanding. The service is excellent...timely but not overbearing. The only complaint that I can voice is that the noise level is quite high which, for some can be a turn off.

    This was our 2nd time here. Beautiful place, nice service - you feel like you are somewhere special. The food is good but I will say that the special, striped bass was a little dry and tasteless - it was quite thick (seemed like halibut) - I didn't think striped bass was ever that thick! Considering the price I was a little disappointed. Anyway, everything else was very nice with this one exception.

    Because of Zagat 28 rating expected spectacular food experience. Not so.: Reception was not attentive. We were left waiting near entrance despite reservations. Noise level unbearable. Unattractive crowd. Waiter unschooled... even pushy. Food mediocre. Crab cakes fair, branzino tasteless, dessert choices boring, limited not unlike a diner Tab was $200 for two people.

    Sea Fire Grill doesn't offer grilled fish – only fried or baked. The fish/seafood is of average quality-freshness, fish on the overcooked side - quite dry. The seafood "specialists" don't know how to properly crack lobster - this was pathetic.
