                                                      We sat outside and the view was just magnificent. Our waitress, Robin, was very friendly, helpful and efficient and the food much improved on a previous visit which, admittedly, was quite a while ago. We shall return.

                                                      The best meal I have ever enjoyed in Fort Lauderdale. And that says a lot. Josh was a great server and made great recommendations. My friend had the perfectly blackened mahi-mahi and I got the perfectly seared scallops.

                                                      The food is delicious, abundant & nicely presented. The service is attentive & friendly. Indoors is dark & gloomy but why would anyone opt to eat indoors when there are two levels with outdoor seating with an amazing view of the beach & ocean! I can only speak to the ladies restroom and that leaves much to be desired. The stairs to the 2nd level are steep. Those are my only 2 negative comments. I definitely recommend, have been there 2x and will continue to visit.

                                                      Sunday Brunch. Ordered French toast. Requested no powdered sugar and sugar free syrup. Other couple ordered eggs Benedict. Food arrived server advised me they did not have sugar free syrup and that they put syrup on toast, he asked if he should scrape it off. Not very smart. I then said I would have eggs Benedict. 30 minutes later it arrived after sending the manager to check on it. other guests had finished eating. They did take it off the check but it was very disappointing experience.

                                                      Really, really didn't like this place on our third visit there. The hostess was snotty and rude even tho we had a reservation we were told we had to wait - there was no one else waiting when we arrived. The wait staff wasn't friendly at all and immediately turned us all off but stating "No Substitutions". So I get to pay over $100 per person but I can't have rice with my meal? I want a baked potato instead of parsley potatoes and I have to pay for an upgrade? The atmosphere was uncomfortable and very warm. The windows were open in the ocean front rooms but we were in a room near the front and the breeze did not reach and the ac was not at a comfortable level, IF it was even on. I was surprised the food was good - I had low expectations after being told I couldn't sub anything. I'm from Palm Beach so maybe we just expect more from our steakhouse restaurants then they do in Broward but when I go out to spend a couple of hundred dollars on dinner I want to be treated respectfully with friendly faces helping to make my evening pleasant. Restaurants that think by treating people rude are somehow being "classy" are just rude. I don't mind spending $$$$ on a nice meal but I want good service, a comfortable atmosphere as well as good food to make my night worth it. I won't go back here and I won't recommend.

                                                      Everything was amazing for my 50th bday dinner with my boyfriend. I will say, the waitress needs to be a little more outgoing and smile especially at a restaurant as nice as the Sea Watch.

                                                      Food was excellent and so was the service. We were seated outside without asking us and no fans to help keep us cool.

                                                      AMAZING VIEWS! I’ve lived in Fort Lauderdale for most of my life and this restaurant had one of the best views/ambience of the ocean side restaurants I’ve been to. The food was really good and priced well—and the service was also excellent. I will definitely bring going back.
