Oysters, tuna, and salmon were all excellent, cooked perfectly. The sides of rice and asparagus were equally top notch. The beer selection is quite good. I strongly recommend this restaurant.
Excellent salmon (with the black skin left on which I didn't notice until I was crunching it!) with mushy vegetables. Server Kelsey was great! Not what I expected. The hype of this place made me think the food and ambience would be better. It's nearly impossible to get a reservation and there's always a line to get in. Not much different than NYAJ that was previously in the space except there's seafood. Maybe it's the Newburyport location that attracts people?
Meeting up with friends from the Midwest, we took a chance on our first visit to Sea Level Oyster Bar. The scallops were extraordinary, the service was attentive, and ambiance was perfect for catching up with old friends. Although many tables inside and out were occupied, the noise level was fine as they were not at full capacity in a weeknight. We loved the oysters and wine selections as well. We will definitely be back. A great find!
We will go back here only if we can eat outside. It is too noisy.
Best Lobster Roll on the North Shore. Packed with 6 ounces of sweet and tender lobster meat with just the right amount of mayonnaise and celery. Only complaint was I wish the brioche roll was a little more toasted.
Food was great, service was great. Crystal and Jill took good care of us. Had great suggestions for us and everything we had was so so so good. We’ll be back.
Went for birthday dinner. We all enjoyed our meals (Braddock with crab, broiled scallops, fish tacos, plus calamari app). Good beer and wine selection. All very good.
Unbelievable oysters. Fantastic scallops with gnocchi. Delightful waiter. Really a memorable meal.
Food was awful for all four of us. Waitress was unfriendly
Great view of the water from the back deck, and service was attentive. Food was good but not exceptional. Flavors were fine, but haddock was a little dry and gnocchi were a little dense.
As usual, very pleased with everything! Beautiful day to sit on the back patio !
We ate lunch here and sat at an outside table in the rear of the restaurant, overlooking the harbor. Just lovely. Our server was friendly and helpful and attentive to my food allergy. We had Mahi tacos and the swordfish enchiladas and both were excellent, very fresh. We did have drinks and I have to say the house special Strawberry Basil Shrub was so good I wrote down the ingredients to try myself! (very light, not too sweet, refreshing with a kick!) Would definitely come back to this restaurant.
Had a marvelous dinner with a super waitress!! Ate outside and, while it was a very hot summer night, I would suggest a stand up fan or two to make it more comfortable AND to keep the flies at bay.
Our waitress was attentive and happy…..and isn’t that fabulous considering she had to wait tables outside in the high heat!
Would definitely recommend and will return!
We had a wonderful dining experience. Service was excellent even with a server shortage, Garrett was very attentive to our table. Food was very good and we'll be back again
Excellent food and service! Will be back!
food: Had seared scallops with greens and Old Bay potatoes. Very very good.
Companion had grilled swordfish with greens and Parmesan/truffles fries. Also very very good.
Service friendly and efficient. Ambience comfortable and attractive.
If I had the choice, I would have given 4.5 stars out of 5.
Beautiful location, delicious food, great service. Sitting on the back deck is a wonderful experience. Thank you
Great food, beautiful views of Waterfront Park. Plus delicious cocktails (one of then best Mai Tais I’ve ever had!
It was a great lunch! Lobster roll, crusted chicken, fish sandwich...excellent!
Thanks for the great service and the fish was delicious!
Atmosphere was very nice and the food was excellent - I will definitely be back!
Great birthday dinner! If you want bread you have to order it first thing (and pay for it). We tried once our meal came, asked 3 times and gave up when it never came. They tried to charge us for it. Otherwise an awesome food experience!
We had a great experience at Sea Level. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. The drinks and food were excellent. Nice vibe inside restaurant; it was raining, so we couldn't dine al fresco. Definitely recommend!
Incredibly welcoming environment in a great location. Super dog friendly. AMAZING food and drinks.
Danielle was our waitress. Excellent. Food really good
All meals were delicious. Staff was great. They opened up the doors to the outside which brought in the much needed sunshine into the room! Would definitely go back.
Great experience! Wonderful service and delicious food!
Fun casual place to eat. bring the kids.very good lobster rolls but they ran out of clam chowder at 7 😳
All good except sat a table with 5 kids next to us who screamed very loudly the whole time. So, not a relaxing experience to say the least. I’d go back, but sit at the bar to avoid this disaster again.
Great views for birthday lunch celebration. Excellent service. Delicious fish.
I love it here so much! Food is amazing, service was great, and our drinks were delicious!!
We showed up for our reservation we made a week ago for our holiday vacation dinner and the restaurant had a sign on the door saying they closed for the day. Why wasn’t the reservation system shut down then????
We dined here for our anniversary. Food was well prepared and presented, although my fish was a bit dry. Service was ok. Wait person seemed like she was phoning it in; she wasn’t very motivated, and when I asked her opinion on one of the specials she said she hadn’t seen any of that night’s specials so she wasn’t sure about how it was prepared. The hostess knew it was our anniversary but the wait person didn’t. Dessert was really good. Ambiance was quite loud. Overall I’d give them a B.
Had the scampi oysters and seafood pie with mashed potatoes in sherry cream sauce.
The food was amazing! Would definitely go back!
Thé fish and seafood is very very fresh.
We love this restaurant! Great food, service & views! We almost always eat outside facing the river. SO GOOD!!!
Great food and view!
Would definitely go back
Service was a little slow but we didn’t mind
Food was great, service a bit lagging but server was very pleasant- A little pricey for type / quality of food but still worth it! One negative note: they put too much lemon on the vegetables as a side- so that when layered with the truffle fries and grilled fish they got soggy and tasted of lemon ( and I’ve had their truffle fries in the past separately and they are fabulous) Nice night overall!
The experience was great. Our host had exceptional customer service. She was very warm, welcoming and ensured we had all we needed.
Good food, good location.
