    Had gotten several recommendations & tried it. Service was great, the feel was a fresh and modern ambiance. Appetizers were very good, but maybe could have been a bit more generous. My wife had the pork chop, & I had a steak. Both were perfect & the sides delicious. All in all a very pleasant dining experience. We will be going back soon.

    I go to Seed all the time and consider it one of my favorites in the suburbs. At this point I had only been for dinner. Lunch was a disaster. The waiter seemed frazzled, the food took over 30 min to be delivered and the waiter never came back to refill sodas or inquire about our food. I did not like my soup and did not eat it but he didn't seem to notice when we finally flagged him down to get the check. I will not go back for lunch.

    Better than usual for neighborhood restaurant and bar. No problem when we had to call that we were stuck in traffic. Unusual layout, but it works. Good food. Personalized service. Unfortunately for us, that rush hour traffic was a bummer from where we live. If we return it will have to be on weekends.

  • Great Birthday Celebration!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 8/16/2014
    We booked our Saturday night dinner reservation on the Tuesday prior and was only able to get an 8:30 time (we were looking for 7pm). This was already later than we preferred - and we actually weren't seated until 9pm. We didn't complain to anyone about this as we enjoyed our time in the bar before dinner, so we were surprised when management sent our table two complimentary appetizers and an apology for the delay in being seated. In addition, two amazing desserts were sent complimentary as well. The service was 5 star! Everyone at the table enjoyed their meal as well - catch of the day, scallops, a special and a vegetarian plate. Will definitely go back and recommend - even without the complimentary apps and desserts!

    Even though this time we were celebrating a birthday, it always seems like a celebration when we dine at Seed. Zaheer took excellent care of us, and Poulk, as always, was the perfect host. The entire staff is professional but very friendly. The food is always delicious and presented beautifully.

    What a gem to find this top notch Restuarant in our connecting neighborhood. When you walk inside the place is very open and does not feel crowded. It is very light and airy. The food amazing, tasting all the flavors in each bite. Can't say enough about the service- all the staff help in small ways that provide that added touch. Our server was very professional, knowledgable about the food and drinks. He also was very conversational but not over the top. We asked questions and he did not feel rushed. Seed is one of our favorite jewels that we like to share with friends when suggesting an upscale, yet casual, fun atmosphere to dine.

    I preordered a bottle of wine so that upon arrival it would be brought to the table (Server asked if we wanted to order cocktails) As he poured the wine it dripped on the table, daughters glass had something in it so hers had to be replaced with wine from the bar. We ordered the fish special that came out nothing like it was described vegetables were both over & under cooked in addition it was so salty we sent it back and replaced it with a glass of water. The vegetable plate was described as served with grains that was not present.

    I made a note when I made my reservation about it being my husband's 34th Birthday. I wasn't expecting much other than maybe a dessert, but really wasn't expecting that. I was absolutely blown away! The person that sat us told my husband, "Happy Birthday, sir." When we got settled I noticed at the top of the menu it said, "Happy 34th Birthday Mr. Locklair!" The entire dinner was amazing and then they brought out a delicious Tres Leches with fresh berries and wrote "Happy Birthday" in chocolate. We will for sure visit this restaurant again! Every time the server spoke to us he called us Mr & Mrs Locklair...being newly married it made me feel good also!

    Maybe because it's lunch not dinner, but the service was really slow. The food, of course was as great as it usually is (the lunch special pleased my hubby), chicken was terrific and the ravioli, but the service... Really, if you're there for a business lunch or need to get out in an hour, this couldn't happen. (The restaurant wasn't full, so?????)

    Had dinner with my sister in this tucked away restaurant I only found because of my Opentable app. From beginning to end, just a fantastic experience. Our server, Zahir, was so great - gave awesome recommendations and attentive to our table but never overpowering the vibe of the dinner. My sister got the catch of the day, I got a salad and we split the special appetizer. We had a red blend for our wine and capped the meal with some coffee and the banana dessert. Absolutely amazing dining experience and well worth the price. Zahir gave great recommendations but with an ever-evolving menu, I doubt there's a bad bite in the place.

    Great service! Ordered the special pan seared pollock on a bed of roasted cauliflower and brussels sprouts. The fish was dry and there was no sauce on the dish. My husband ordered filet with grilled asparagus. Meat was well cooked but the sauce with the asparagus was not good. Overall the experience was good but next time I would just do drinks and apps.

    We dined at Seed to celebrate our daughter coming home from NYC after a year working there. Not only did we receive personalized menus that said, "Welcome Home, Katey", the food and service were impeccable. It was one of the best experiences we have had at this terrific restaurant. We were about to leave when a spectacular dessert came out. We were full, but it was worth every bite of indulgence. Thanks for a memorable evening, Seed Kitchen and Bar!

    Recently my friends Hans and Crystal suffered a devastating miscarriage followed by a death of a close family member. Overall it had just been a very bad month for them. The day Crystal got back from her grandfather's funeral was also their four year anniversary. I then hatched a plan to created a beautiful evening for them. I emailed the restaurant, which Chrystal had been wanting to go to, and promptly got a response back from Chris McNiell. He and his team helped me arrange a wonderful night which my friends described as "a light in a dark month". I planned everything from wine to dessert, every course, and paid the bill all from the comfort of my own home. I would say more but I am out of characters!

Every attention to detail is paid, the food is consistently good, and the experiences change with the menu. You can't go wrong with the crispy calamari, hickory smoked and grilled pork chop, and the tres leches cake. We love this place!

    We have eaten at Seed numerous times and I have to say that the food and service seem to be going downhill. The food is extremely salty!!!! Everything is salted to death. And the service this time was below par. The waiter acted bored or irritated I'm not sure which. I really don't think we will be back which is unfortunate since the first couple times we ate there we loved the food and the service. But that was a couple years ago.
