    We went there for my birthday. We got seated right away. Our waiter let us know the specials and asked if we had any questions. We ordered the bone marrow and cooked oysters first. They were fantastic. Then we ordered the catch of the day which was sheepshead (fish). So ugly but so delicious. Also got the baby carrots which were a little too spicy for me and the brussel sprouts which were very good. We had a great time and the food was spectacular. Would definitely recommend Herb and Sea.

    Special place to celebrate my birthday, and then the new year. Our server, Don was amazing and made incredible recommendations all around for a 1st timer. It had a relatively relaxed ambiance with a view of the ocean. Valet was relatively priced well and service was spot on. Definitely a place to visit if you’re in Cardiff.
