Never a bad meal at 18 Seaboard. The pork shank was fantastic; desserts were better.

Waited over an hour for food. Pasta was cold and salmon (ordered medium well) came out rare. Had to send food back twice and it still cost us nearly $100. Overall, food and service was incredibly disappointing... We will never return here.

I've been to 18 Seaboard 3 times, and lucky for me, I found the salmon on the first visit.

There are several choices for sides, but order the wood-fired salmon! I peruse the menu
each time I'm there, but the wood-fired salmon I can't pass on, and am never disappointed.

Extremely professional staff with tasty extras from the kitchen, all complimentary. I've never been to a Michelin 5 star, but this is how I always imagined it would be.....I'll be back!!

Excellent service. Food portion was perfect, looked a little small when presented but was actually just right. Ingredients were fresh and paired well. Wonderful date night spot, enough people to make it lively but not so noisy that a conversation was difficult.

The service at Seaboard was outstanding. When four friends met for lunch, two had dietary restrictions (one has an allergy to onions.) To be safe, the no-onions person ordered a hamburger with lettuce, tomato, no onions but with the special pimento cheese. Lunch was served (beautiful presentations in every case.) Before my friend took her first bite, our server whisked her plate away saying she had learned from the kitchen that the pimento cheese contained onions. The entire lunch was cooked again, sans cheese. Our server continued to give us outstanding service throughout the long lunch. Food was excellent.
