Even though we had a reservation it was hard to get waited on. The noise level was awful! Way too loud. It’s more of a bar than a restaurant. Will never go back.

We come to New York yearly from California and this is always on our list! Amazing food and great service. They even have options for those who don’t like seafood. We always leave satisfied.

Honestly i feel like the only good thing was the oysters during happy hour they were fresh and $2 only but every thing over priced got a lobster Mac and cheese that was $25 and it was a portion just for a child and the crab legs they gave me was decent but the shrimp was not good definitely don’t recommend for the price they offer oh and the seating sucks no private dining or booths you can hear everyone conversation and when your sitting your so close to the other people next to you you almost can touch elbows

I have been to this place twice, each time, the service was extremely slow. Food is ok but little bit overpriced.

I didn't know what to expect from CajunSea, but the service was great, the food was good. Our waitress Nataly was really friendly and wonderful. I tried the raw oysters it was spectacular. They are known for their (seafood boil), it was good and pricey. I am definitely going again.

This place is great! I always love Cajun, and the Boil is my favorite place in NYC. But this is a close second.

The service was excellent! I made reservation online with a request and they provided that request. The server was always around when we needed something. It was a great experience celebrating a friend's birthday. Highly recommend the place.

The oyster happy hour is awesome, but it's seems that everything else on the menu is priced higher to make up for that deal. Food was tasty overall, and we will return.

Went to brunch with my friends and we seat there for 35 mins and our order wasn’t taken and from the unlimited drinks we paid for we only received one at the time. Service was extremely lacking and took away from the experience.

they only accept customers with reservations, which we discovered upon arrival, so we stepped out of the restaurant, and used the phone to make a reservation. It is a little strange and seemed a bit unneccessary but the food was good albeit certain items were overpriced. skip the shrimp cocktail, go for the baked clams.

The food is so good. Thumbs up for the waiter who serve us. He is nice and so handsome. Always give us Beautiful smile. The only thing that annoys us is the noise level. Two women sat next to us talk quite loud. We couldn’t have a good conversation due to the noise. But other than that, this restaurant is wonderful.

The best place to have oyster!! They have flexible happy hour schedule which is "everyday" including weekend! Talking about oyster, everytime I order 3 dozen of it for two of us, they serve really quick, and really fresh and tasty as well. The seafood pasta is not bad. Definitely recommend.

This was our first visit and it way exceeded our expectations. The food was GREAT. (Get the Cajun boil!) And the happy hour deal is a great deal. We did a Cajun boil with 1 lb of crab legs, shrimp, and a dozen oysters and our bill was only $114 for 3 of us. We all agreed that we're going to make this place our regular spot.

We arrived a half hour early for our reservation. That was not a problem. We were seated immediately.
I had the crab cakes and also the catfish. Everything was very good and moderately priced.

The meal was tasty but the portions keep shrinking every time we go and the cost goes up. Never after paying the bill have we been told to vacate the table. $75 pp dining bill with apps, dinner drinks and dessert to be told less than 10 minutes after paying that we needed to go as they wanted the table. There was another 4 top in the next row. Save your money and go to a place that appreciates customers.
