    christmas eve and all the diners were freezing. lots of diners wearing coats and hats to eat. we begged for heating. We really should not have paid but we were with colleagues and did not want to embarrass ourselves. Also the waitress should have advised that portions were huge.

    Dined there with my daughter on a week night. Our entrees were delicious!!!! The Chilean sea bass was fresh with a fantastic sauce and the chicken with cashews and peppers was the best tasting dish I had experienced ... So delicious! Service was attentive and pleasant. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

    the food was fantastic and the service excellent. We went early in the afternoon but are looking forward to visit them again in the evening as the ambiance seems to be "ready for a late night". Drinks were divine and the staff was friendly and very sharp. It was my birthday and the team was really great! Loved it!

    came all the way from brazil and decided to book SEA restaurant for my new year's eve. well, nothing could have gone worse. the service was terrible (after having booked it 15 days prior, we had to wait 15min on the line to be seated. once we were seated, no waiter would come to bring us the pro-secco that should be unlimited. and after that, they managed to change every single dish we ordered with the table next to us) but the MOST HORRIBLE thing about it: the music was ABUSIVELY loud. NO ONE could possible have dinner and talk to someone with that music. AWFUL. i do not recommend this restaurant.

    Spent New Years Eve at SEA. Staff wasn't really in a festive mood. Despite the "free prosecco" deal, they didn't really kept it coming - not even at midnigth, so we couldn't do a New Years toast...quite dissapointing. Food was allright. Service poor. Overpriced event. I normally like SEA but wont come back for a special celebration.

    Never again, we sat for half hour without a waiter paying any attention to us. I had to flag a waitress to even pay attention. The food was so so, the roasted duck was horrible, over Cooke to death smothered with peanuts sauce. Really horrible experience. Never again.

    My friend was in town visiting from California, so I wanted to take her to a place that had great food and a cool atmosphere. I had never been to SEA before , but am familiar with Thai cuisine so I decided to book a reservation. The place was absolutely gorgeous! The decor was modern and chic. The food surpassed my expectations as did the service. In fact, our server sensed that we were doing a lot of catching up and gave us plenty of time in between courses. I definitely recommend this gem in the meatpacking district!

    As a huge fan of SEA Williamsburg, I was looking forward to trying out SEA Meatpacking. I was a bit disappointed in comparing the two (although the curry was delicious). The ambiance didn't measure up and they didn't have the crab rangoon appetizer (which Williamsburg has) I specifically went for. Also, they were out of fondue for desert! Otherwise, the Panang Curry was delicious and my friend's meal was also very yummy. The waitstaff was good too. If I had to choose though, I'd make the trek to Williamsburg in the future.

  • Moderate Thai, not Exceptional

    Dined on 10/26/2013
    I went in the afternoon on a Saturday to avoid a night rush. It was very sparse which was amazing considering the location. The service was sub-par. We didn't have a dedicated server and were shuttled between the persons whom happened to be walking by at the time. It proved to be very frustrating; especially when asking for simple requests such as napkins and water...which stayed empty. The food was nothing spectacular. I've had better Thai in other cities and restaurants in NYC. Yummy Thai is one that offers a similar atmosphere with higher quality food. I had the Island Red Hot Curry, which was very similar in flavor to a Panang Curry, just with extra spice. The rice that comes with the dish was dry and a tiny portion.

    Dined on 10/21/2013
    First I should mention that we had dinner at 5:30 which, for me, is ridiculously early, but I had to attend a concert in Brooklyn and wanted a good bite to eat before the show. The location of Sea in Manhattan is very cool, directly on Washington at the very end of the upper walking deck that runs along the water. The view you have is of another restaurant which has a huge outdoors all nicely lit up so it's pretty. We enjoyed the warm duck wraps served with 3 tasty sauces and nutty accompaniments. The shrimp noodle dish was very tasty and we had the fried calamari which were nice and crispy. I have no doubt that this place is hopping at night. Ambiance wise, the SEA in Williamsburg is 100 times cooler.....now that's a MUST TRY!

    Nothing special about this visit AT ALL - not even glasses of champagne (or Prosecco even.. come on) for a nice, small group of young women celebrating a birthday. The food is good here, but the one in Brooklyn is better, even though this location is "cooler." Staff was lukewarm, didn't give enthusiastic advice when asked about menu items. I just don't plan on going back.

    SEA is located in the meatpacking district by the High Line and offers good Thai food and a great atmosphere. A good place to meet friends or bring those that are new to the city to get away from the major tourist restaurants.

    The noise level was intolerable. Impossible to have a conversation. My friend's cocktail was not as ordered and my glass of wine was red-colored water for $10. If you are under 30 and think that deafening noise makes for a quality dining experience, you will love this place.

    Not bad, just not good in any way. Thai food is common in British pubs, and the food was of that standard. Service was not bad either, but thoughtless - so, allowing us to order rice, and pay for it, despite the fact that a bowl was provided with the entree anyway. The perfectly friendly staff had to be summoned rather than being attentive. The menu places a premium on design but the pre-printed bound color of it also shows that nothing about it is changed with any frequency. It's one thing to have classics, but printing like this suggests such an unchanging menu as to ignore any seasonality of produce. The location and, in the summer at least, outside seating probably pay the rent but with so much all around it needs to be much better.

    When we got to the restuarant the hostess was on the phone and didn't acknowledge that we were there till 5 minutes later. When we were seated by someone else someone came and took our drinks and appetizers. Than another person came to take our entree order. By the time the 4th person came we felt like we HAD to order our entree cause we would have been interrupted again. As our appetizer came or drinks were still not there. Anytime we would stop to talk we felt like as if they wanted to take our plates before we were done. We didn't get to finish our food so we got the rest to go. The container they gave me was smaller than the food I left. So I know they didn't give me all the food I left so paid for food I didn't even get to eat.

    while SEA is good for groups, it was way too noisy. every single table around us seemed to be screaming, to the point where we couldn't hear ourselves think. also, they were overly crowded, so we got very little attention from the servers and had to ask for things like plates, hot sauce, etc. multiple times. the food was good, but try to avoid going on friday or saturday nights when they are slammed.

    Sea in the Meatpacking District is moderately sized. There are both outdoor and indoor tables. Service was really quick. The food was delicious. However, we kept asking if there were peanuts in the items we were ordering, and they failed to mention that the calamari is served with peanuts as a garnish. Luckily we noticed. Other than that everything was good--and very fairly priced for the meatpacking district.

    So this restaurant is an amazing find in the Meatpacking district with very reasonable prices! The food was really good and so were the drinks. The staff were extremely accommodating. I got to the restaurant about 45mins (called to tell them I was running late) and they still upheld my dinner reservations eventhough it was super packed! A couple other friends showed up about 30mins into dinner and they were nice enough to add another table to our group. I practically begged them to do it but at any rate, they could have said no and I am happy that they made that happen for me!

    i have been going to the SEA in Williamsburg for years, so i was delighted to find one opened in the meatpacking. While the food was just as good as the brooklyn location, the service was annoying. First off, it was not busy when we got there. From the time we sat down we had 5 different waiters come over to us about every 3 minutes to see if we had decided on our food. Im always happy to have attentive waiters, but this was ridiculous and almost to the point of being pushy. My BF had never been there before so he needed a couple minutes to look over the menu. Other than that our dinner was pleasant and the waiters were nice, i would go back for a quick inexpensive bit if i am in this area.

    Our reservations were for 7:00pm. We arrived at 6:30pm , minus two people from our party. They wouldn't seat us till everyome got there-which was fine. However, by 7 we told the hostess that we weren't going to wait for the other two people and we will sit and have dinner. One of the female hostess said that they were setting up the table and it will be ready shortly. At 7:20 we asked again for our table and the male hostess said that they were still setting up. I asked why does it take over 20 minutes to set up a table? He only kept saying to me that they're setting up the table, it's not ready, I can go upstairs to see. So the table they "needed" to set up took 1 1/2 hours to set up. The male hostess was extremely rude.

    The bar area gave our part of nine that much needed 'privacy'. The high table actually gave it a more relaxed feel and for quite a big, rowdy group of girls, it was perfect -- we didn't even disturb the other patrons eating over at the other side of the dining area. Service and food was perfect and our waiters and waitresses were all very cordial and friendly! I will def come back!!!
