A word from Sea Fire Grill
Offering seasonally focused, contemporary American seafood, where only the finest and freshest seafood is highlighted. Guests will be enchanted by the superb selection of raw bar favorites and delicious appetizers which include East & West Coast Oysters, Chilled Lobster, and expertly seasoned Yellowfin Tuna Tartare. Entrée selections are sure to delight, with succulent Alaskan King Crab Legs, elegant Herb Basted Black Bass and the menu wouldn't be complete without the addition of SFG's Surf & Turf - tender filet mignon and buttery steamed lobster.
The sleek interior, with tile floors, shimmering blue lighting, and mirrored accents give the space a modern edge while the Main Dining Room takes cues from a classic steakhouse with dark wood floors, wainscoting, and a roaring marble fireplace. SFG boasts not one but two private dining options for more intimate events. The Sea Fire Grill lends the perfect balance to refined cuisine, chic décor, and impeccable service.

  • "really pleasant experience...ambiance is very pleasant, service great, blackened swordfish fantastic, very interesting salad. One of the best meals ive ever had..."
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "This is a hard place to rate, as it was very expensive and very loud. That said the food was very good, as was the service. Not sure I would return, as it just wasn't a pleasant "ambiance"."
    Dined on 8/18/2014
  • "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."

  • "The food was good quality, but I feel the fish was still overpriced for what you get."

  • "This is a great place to eat seafood. Awesome food and dining experience. My girlfriend and I anted to try serhing new and different. The bartenders were talented mixing our cocktails."

  • "I thought I was making reservations for another restaurant so I was disappointed from the start. The food was mediocre (my ribs were dry and the cole slaw was hardly seasoned). The bartender was friendly, though, and the drinks were generous."

  • "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."

  • "Excellent service but so so food, this restaurant is rated 28 for food in Zagat. It is far from that."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "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."

  • "My wife and I were celebrating our 59th anniversary and we had a great dining experience. I had mixed up the date and we were seated anyway - at a very nice table. The service and food were superb."

  • "Used TripAdvisor to find a restaurant near our hotel for my wife's birthday. You didn't let me down. I mentioned her birthday and they brought a fabulous dessert to top off a fantastic dinner. Service was excellent, friendly and someone I will request on my next visit. A strong recommendation."

  • "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."

  • "Delicious food, wonderful service and great atmosphere. Wish it was a bit less noisy; it was hard to hear. We have been debating who had the best meal. Everything was delicious."

  • "Fabulous dining experience. Great food with excellent service from everyone from greet staff to maitre d to waiter. Polite but human! But it all comes at a price. Be prepared to loosen your purse strings to really enjoy yourself or have a generous expense account."

  • "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."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "This was our first time here, we were a party of 4. Everyone was pleased with their dinner, the seared tuna is wonderful. Restaurant is beautiful with a hip young crowd. The service is great, they aim to make sure every guest has a good time."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "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."

  • "The food was fresh and have a lot of choices available including the sides. We ordered some plates to share."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "All about this restaurant is first class. The decor is calm and bright. The seating is comfortable only matched by the outstanding service and food. All choices are of good size and well prepared and presented. There is nothing I can think of that is less than outstanding. My favorite is the blackened swordfish--a perfect lunch entree. Wish all seafood restaurants would take several pages from their book."

My salmon was cooked to perfection. We are looking forward to trying out the happy hour sometime in the near future!"

  • "excellent service and food. good selection and wait staff knowledgeable"
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "I have been here several times and the food is wonderful, always consistent and the service is excellent. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting NYC and wanting a great meal."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "We had two different fish for our main course and shared the Tuna Tartar, all were excellent, the portions were very generous. The dessert menu was creative and the item we ordered was very good. The wine list was very extensive with good selections in all price ranges."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "We arrived for our 7:30 dinner reservation to find the bar area and dining room busy and unbelievably noisy. While this is sadly true for most NYC restaurants, Sea Fire Grill is one of the worst we've experienced. We asked for a quiet table. I don't think it exists. With just 4 of us we had to shout to hear one another and often ask one friend to repeat herself to understand what she was saying. Lip reading came in handy. This ruined our experience. The food was very good and the manager could not have been nicer or more sympathetic. Service was just adequate as they were quite busy. I had an early, noon, lunch here that was terrific as the restaurant wasn't too full and there wasn't a busy, loud bar scene."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Excellent dining experience. We and our guests enjoyed a range of seafood selections, all exceptional."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Food was nice enough, but we were disappointed with a long wait for our table (after we arrived early for our reservation). We were finally seated between two halves of a large group, that proceeded to go back and forth, table to table. Really, no one should have been seated there. We were offered a complimentary after dinner drink, but we didn't want another drink after we had to cool our heels in the bar for 40 minutes. Too little, too late. It was unacceptable."

  • "I was looking for a restaurant for my family. We were on vacation and it was close to our hotel. The staff was friendly and the food was amazing! All four of us ordered a different fish and each one was better than the next. We passed our plates so we all could share! Our waiter recommended a great wine at a reasonable price and even celebrated our trip with a round of drinks with our dessert!"

  • "Very much enjoyed lunch with my girlfriend, had requested a table where we could sit alongside each other and was pleased to see this had been arranged. Service was great, and food was outstanding - we will be back, looking forward to trying the restaurant for dinner already!"

  • "My hubby and I are in new York for the weekend. It's not very many seafood b spots near by but our concierge recommended Seaford Grill. We arrived an hour before reservation but was able to be seated early. Our waiter was knowledgeable and good. I ordered the salmon which was good and ordered a steak. He said the steak was not best he had but was tasteful. Crab cakes were good. I would go back again."
