Diner Reviews
  • "Best seafood I've had in a LONG time. Awesome food and a good value. This place is a hidden gem; small and easy to miss since it's small and in a shopping center. Much better than any of the bigger, touristy restaurants in the area. Servers were friendly and knowledgeable. Surprisingly empty for a Saturday night, no idea why there is not a line around the corner to get into this place it's very good! Give Sea a chance you will not be disappointed."

  • "What a great meal. Sea is a 3 course price fix dinner, with al la carte entrées also available. We both had specials Saturday evening, my husband the veal chop, which looked beautiful, and tasted even better. I had the shrimp pasta special, worth every carb. Sea is gracious about patrons bringing their own wines, with a reasonable corkage fee. Paul is a great server, he is knowledgeable and can assist you with any questions you may have. YOU Must make a reservation, Sea is a very small 10 table restaurant."

  • "We had a great dinner at Sea. The food was amazing and the service was wonderful. It is an extremely small restaurant, so I would recommend reservations. It's a great place to dine for fresh seafood selections and their dessert special of Peach Cobbler was to die for!"

  • "We have eaten at SEA on prior occasions and each time have really enjoyed the food and service. This time I had the tuna bolognese for which they are known and it was excellent! My husband and friend both had crab crusted mahi and were equally pleased with the food! We will return again very soon to this great little place!"

  • "this is my second time eating at Sea. So good, insanely good, however you want to say it; it's a great meal. Chef Tony is an incredible chef. Try the braised grouper if he has it. Also I have had Conch Chowder and corn chowder there which were both incredible. Had a strawberry tart with homemade Carmel ice cream so good. THIS IS A MUST WHEN IN LAUDERDALE BY THE SEA !!"

  • "We found the choices to be fresh and excellently prepared. Pleasant ambiance...noisy, but we sat at the bar with direct view of the busy kitchen. Servers swarmed offering us great service. Proud of the food they served which helped us to feel good about what we ordered. It is a fixed price menu and that was a little uncomfortable in that we do not eat carbs...sugar or grains...and we do not eat lot's of food so we usually share. Sharing is NOT ALLOWED. But all in all the prices were reasonable, as well as the portions and we enjoyed tasting many different things. My only complaint would be the QUALITY. We like to eat CLEAN food. Organic only veggies ans fruits, wild and grass fed meats. Fine dining though almost at it's best!"

  • "Tony amazes with his skill every time I eat his delicious meals. Nobody prepares fish better than Tony, especially snapper Francaise. And though he doesn't have it on the menu anymore his tuna tartare was phenomenal and I hope he will consider putting it back on the menu. Of course his tuna Bolognese is "to die for"."

  • "visited SEA with another couple for a dinner on our way in to Laud by the Sea for some drinks. Food was outstanding and service attentive. The prix fixed menu was a plus as allowed for nice mix of salads and desserts with our excellent entrée. The Hummus crusted grouper was a big hit with a delicious taroe mash. Included deserts were excellent with the whisky cake and a straw rhubarb tart memorable. Very casual setting in small strip mall so nothing fancy here but the food!"

  • "The wife and I dined at SEA this past weekend and enjoyed our meal. The place is very, very small, but thankfully intimate. Despite the small size, the noise level was low, though only two other tables were occupied when we got there. More arrived as well left. The food portions were small, but very flavorful. The selection is very modest, but varied. I will definely be back."

  • "Wonderful food and service. Everyone works together as a team to provide a wonderful dining experience. The roSted beet salad was delicious and the crab encrusted mahi mahi was perfectly cooked. I chose the whiskey cake and it melted in my mouth. I was alone and felt very comfortable the entire time and waiters were friendly and attentive. Thank you for a wonderful meal!"

  • "This might be the best seafood restaurant in Broward County. Food is amazing. We had Hog Snapper and Sea Scallops this time. Both were prepared to perfection and the portions were decent. It is not cheap and they could use a few more pictures on the wall, but this is our go to place for a great meal. Love Ada's salad dressing. Yum. And we can walk there!"

  • "This is the best little restaurant in Fort Lauderdale... chef Tony is a genius with fish and seafood....and everything else... Wish it was more spacious...And had a waiting lounge.... thank you."

  • "The crusted snapper was tasty and presented well; and overall a decent meal; however, considering that I was in the area on business - it is unlikely that I will return."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "This is our second visit to SEA and not the last I hope. We brought friends, who are foodies, and they loved it. The corn chowder was delicate, light and lovely. The Dijon crusted Florida snapper was served with a wonderful sauce. The flavorings were excellent and did not overwhelm the fish, which was fresh, delicate and flavorful. I opted for the key lime pie, which was excellent. If you haven't eaten at SEA you are missing one of South Florida's best."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "This place is a gem. The food is wonderful, the waiters are terrific. Don't be turned off by the prix fixe menu. It's a good deal. We always feel welcome there and there are a lot of "regulars" who go there often enough to have their favorite glass of wine waiting for them at there seat upon arrival. We make a point to go there every time we are in Fort Lauderdale."

  • "Tucked away in a nondescript plaza, SEA is the place for excellent food at reasonable prices."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "It is named SEA for a reason--all seafood. I am allergic so the only option I had on this night for a entrée was a 12 oz pork chop or 12-14 oz steak. No chicken. Was told that since they were not open for lunch on that day they had no chicken available. I had a tomato mozz salad, which was OK. That left room for dessert of crème brule, which was OK"

  • "We visited on Monday for dinner based on the reviews. They were all right! The freshness and quality can not be beat. It was amazing,creative and delicious food. Great for people that want a little indulgence with quality/clean and local ingredients. We were hoping for a little more ambiance but it ended up being the perfect spot for my boyfriend to propose! The staff was wonderful, courteous, prompt, knowledgeable and the food- amazing. SEA will always hold a special place in our hearts - the food and the staff were unforgettable! I recommend really anything - everything we ate was amazing - Butternut Chard., beet salad and Creme Brulee were standouts. Thanks SEA! We highly recommend you and loved our experience with you!"

  • "that a little storefront in a strip meal could rival Fort Lauderdale's best restaurants! this little gem serves up some outstanding dishes and our group of four were all beyond satisfied. the tune bolognese is mind-blowing. it does have a somewhat non-descript ambiance and tables are tight, but if you're a " foodie" then you must go!"

  • "If fresh fish is not your thing, then I would skip this restaurant. What makes it special is the many delicious ways the chef deals with the freshest fish. Everything we had was exceptional."

  • "I was disappointed w/my entree, red snapper; vegetables were cooked perfectly. My wife had the grouper, it was much better Thames mine."

  • "This restaurant was just as stated by other reviewers. Really fresh, wonderfully cooked seafood, and very reasonably priced. My meal of a nice salad, yellow tail snapper and desert was $36. I really hope this restaurant thrives and that they do two things: add a raw bar offering and a liquor license. Do that and I'm there twice a month."

  • "Little ambiance sitting right in the middle of a strip mall. Outside seating looks at the parking lot. Service was very poor, obviously they have repeat customers and really don't care about visitors. Had to constantly ask for water , bread given to other tables, ran out of two of the fish specials by 8:30, which left 2 choices. The food was reall good, perhaps on a weekday we would have had better service, won't recommend it, I think there are so mNy more choices here that can equal Sea."

  • "Love, love, love this place. Skip the tourist "seafood" restaurants that all get their food from the same distributors. Amazing Hog Snapper. Simple menu, great service, 3 courses, one price."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Small venue with a set seafood menu. The preparation was excellent because of its simplicity. The emphasis was on the seafood, with minimum garnish. You can watch the preparation in the kitchen. It is a bit noisy, but the service was very good. Definitely a good find."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "My husband and I can't each eat a three course meal--but that is all that is offered. You can't even take your dessert home! What's up with that? The wine list is short and not that interesting. That said, the food was good. But it might not be worth the trouble next time"
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Sea has a revolving, prix fixe menu with limited choices. Also limited seating, and rather high prices. But the food is carefully prepared and well presented, which makes it a relative stand-out for this area."
