Amazing lunch! Food was spot on. Had the $60 sharing platter for a main and the calamari to start. Calamari was melt in your mouth kind of good. Sharing plaster was delicious! Service also outstay! Spoke to owner as well a couple of times as she came out to check that everything was up to standby… which it was and then some.

We returned here after being away for 3 years to learn ownership had changed. The great quality has stayed the same though! Excellent sushi and maki!

I had booked through open table initially when I learned there would be a dog coming too. So I called back and Sea Smoke had no problem seating us on the patio so our furry friend could join us.
Service was not up to what we normally expected. Our oysters came out after our appetizers and the sushi boat. One appetizer came out after the oysters. Dessert selection is disappointing due to lack of options.
The drinks that night were excellent.

We sat outside so the noise was a little louder just from passerbys, but it was just beautiful to look at the water. Outstanding service, and the food was incredible. Will definitely be back. Perfect place for a romantic date night.

We were very disappointed in the quality of the food. I ordered the stuffed haddock and my husband ordered the halibut. Both dishes were very under seasoned as the server offered us salt and pepper and I thought that was a bit strange for this type of restaurant. The both fishes were dry and absolutely had no flavor. The crab and lobster that the haddock was stuffed with was completely tasteless and it was almost like it was frozen for a long time. We each had carrots and broccoli and they were raw. It is NOT WORTH the money and we will NOT return to this restaurant.

Enjoyed sitting outside on their patio for a lunch with friends. I had their lobster roll with hand cut fries and it was all very delicious. Server was friendly and drinks and food orders came out fast.

I had gone here for a birthday dinner for myself with my boyfriend, best friend and her boyfriend. I was surprised when their meals all came on a nice plate with garnish and plated very nicely, but I had gotten the chicken and it was just a bowl with the chicken thrown on top. It was still very good food I was just expecting more after I saw all of their plates.

We waited 10-15 for our server to arrive at our table which was directly behind the hostesses podium. There were three hostesses around the podium, who were having a great time chatting with each other, oblivious of their customer needs?? Our server, once she arrived was very professional.

We ordered the Beef and tune appetizers, both were excellent. Ordered the coconut crusted scallops, very, very poor! they were cold when they arrived and almost seemed like they been thawed and refrozen, extremely rubbery ( which is not normal for a fresh scallop)
I ordered an Unagi Roll, which was just ok.

I wouldn't be rushing back there.

The service last night was outstanding! We were having a very belated birthday celebration for my husband. I didn't mention anything about it to our server, but she saw us giving him some gifts, and took it upon herself to bring out a birthday treat. And what a treat it was! A beautiful, elaborate and delicious dessert, for free. We were all really touched and very appreciative. We will be back, and we'll tell all our friends about how the restaurant went above and beyond for us.
Thanks so much!

We were a group of 5 and everyone ordered something different. Without exception all were very pleased with the food and presentation, accompanied by a very friendly and engaging server who was attentive to every need. The fish and chips are outstanding, the lobster roll delicious, and the fresh seafood bowls nicely presented and very satisfying.
We will be back!

Our service was very slow, infrequent, and haphazard when server was at table (used glasses and dishes left, had to ask to clean up a food spill and she used a napkin, poor drink service and was not knowledgeable about the food.

We had an outside table which was great except trying to eat at a table that comes to your knees in metal chairs was not comfortable, no place to put your feet (ended up eating on my lap).

We have been to Sea Smoke twice before and had exceptional experiences (even though again, servers were not knowledgeable or attentive). Will consider other options for $$$ dining next time.
