A word from The Sea
The Sea, The Southeast Asian Kitchen, from the founders of Lemongrass Asian Bistro.

The Sea Southeast Asian Kitchen features a wide array of South East Asian delights. From Asian noodle dishes to the highest quality sushi available in South Florida, The Sea guarantees something for everyone. If you have been a fan of Lemongrass, then you will see many dishes that share their inspiration from the Lemongrass menu. However, in addition to your Lemongrass favorites, you will also find an even greater assortment of fresh fish and steak options.

The space integrates exposed brick, pendant lights, visible ductwork, and wood floors to create a modernized loft interior, with a focus on clean lines and detail that is a signature mark of the founder’s other locations. The Sea's casual, yet elegant "modern-rustic" design creates an atmosphere that is perfect for grabbing a quick meal, or celebrating a special occasion.

  • THE SEA. IF YOU LIKE LEMONGRASS....

    THE SEA is owned by the same people who operate Lemongrass and others around the Boca Delray area. If you like Lemongrass, then you will enjoy The Sea - maybe even more. Unlike Lemongrass The Sea is more like a "real" restaurant, in that it is not crowded with tables next to each other, the ambiance is better and parking is plentiful. But the real reason to visit The Sea is the food. Japanese food meets Thai. Everything we had, from the Shrimp dishes to Pad Thai to the Sushi dishes was flavorful with generous portions and nice presentation. Service was very good in every respect. The Sea is our new favorite go to place for Japanese-Thai food.

    This restaurant is related to the Lemon Grass restaurants in Boca and Delray, and offers the same standard of food and service! The good news is that it's closer to home, and will no doubt be frequented by the West Boca/Delray crowd!

    Seven friends including myself enjoyed a delicious beautifully presented dinner. I had the scallops with cellophane noodles and it was cooked to perfection. Everyone ordered a different dish and each one was a winner! We now have a new restaurant on our favorites list! The service was great and friendly. A winner all around !!!!

    The sushi is delicious. We went with friends that do not eat raw fish. They all enjoyed their dishes including the Pad Thai and Beef. Excellent quality food at moderate prices. It is located in the Addison Shoppes where the prices for restaurants are known to be pricey. This restaurant has become a favorite as whenever we are in town we make this a repeat visit.

    Pleasant place with admirable menu. However everything we tasted lacked "taste" and authenticity. This is a comfortable Asian restaurant that will satisfy everyone that doesn't have experience with the dishes at more authentic spots. Pad Thai, coconut lemongrass soup, crispy duck, seared tuna salad, steamed dumplings; all looked nice but fell off in taste department.

    Early dinner with friends. Attentive server and accommodating food runners - never intrusive/always available. Four main courses and 2 appetizers served promptly and correctly -- all flavorful. No "surprises" but all very good. A tip -- summer sun can make outside seating before sundown pretty uncomfortable, even with canvas shade down. Stay inside if you're going early.

    LindaVIP
    Dined on 5/28/2014
    For an Asian seafood restaurant, the menu is a bit pricier than expected. For example the Lobster Pad Thai was $38. While it was very tasty, this is excessive comparatively speaking, and as an entree, came without anything at all, no soup or salad or bread etc. And, although it was enough for me, normal portion of this dish elsewhere delivers enough to take plenty home. The seating in this small eatery is not terrific -- as in many tiny places, they've utilized a long wall for upholstered bench seating, and lined up a bunch of small square tables against that, with 2nd chairs facing the wall. Unappealing, as there's no privacy for diners practically sharing each others' tables.

    This was our second time at The Sea and everyone enjoyed their meal. we started off with wonton soup ( 2 had the lobster won ton) and it was very good. One ordered the half duck--crisp and delicious. Another had a shrimp dish with huge prawns-enough to share. And a Beef with cashew nuts and other vegetables was a big and delicious portion. Our reservation was honored on a busy Saturday night.

    The service was good but much too fast. As soon as we sat down and ordered wine they wanted to take out dinner order. Asked them to come back in 5 minutes. A few minutes later she returned and food came out so fast. We had 7:00 reservation and even though we tried to have a leisurely dinner we were out by 8:05. Would not run back
