Beautiful restaurant and setting, delicious food, wonderful service
It's always a great evening at the Sea Watch. Wait staff was wonderful and food was delicious
Told our guests what a great place this was. Had a reservation for 6 at 7:30. Waited a bit for a table. Finally got seated within 20 minutes of waiting. We ordered our salads, cornbread and main course together.
The salads did not arrive at the table for over an hour. By that time we had asked our server several times where our food was. The restaurants excuse was the kitchen was busy. Very poor excuse. We then waited another 30 minutes for our main course. 5 main courses came and the 6th we had to wait for and it came out wrong. By that point we were not sending it back. The server had the manager come over, she was not at all friendly and seemed rushed, she said we could be comped our salads, or take 25% off the bill or free dessert, "whatever we wanted", the manager said. We could decide. When the server came back to get our decision, the 25% off was never offered, we could get only free salads or dessert. We chose the free salads. There was no way we were having dessert and waiting another hour. We eat here occasionally and never have a problem. The service that night was horrific and the manager was very abrupt and quite unprofessional. Not likely we will be back soon.
Sea Watch on the ocean is always a pleasurable dining experience. The service from entering the door to leaving is just wonderful. The extensive menu has something for everyone and the food is excellent. When making a reservation, request an ocean view table.
We just had a great lunch at SeaWatch. We had a table on the upstairs veranda overlooking the ocean. Couldn’t have been more perfect. We had conch chowder, fried shrimp, crab tostada, crab salad and the most delicious key lime pie for dessert. Everything was delicious. Our waiter was outstanding.
We had an excellent table by the windows, the food was wonderful as always, and our server Christine was fantastic!
Good view, excellent appetizers
The seafood was great - I especially loved the lobster bisque and the “medley”. The wait staff were all friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. It really was a 5 star experience.
Booked on the day, table upstairs so didn't see much of view still it was evening anyway!
Good choice of seafood. The stuffed grouper with lump crab, one of the specials, was lovely.
Bit noisy, but then is a big restaurant.
Food was delicious. Salmon and blackened mahi were both great. Our Waiter, Dave, was wonderful, very attentive and helpful. The building is beautiful ; a combination of rustic and modern , and on the ocean!! Will go back again and have already recommended it to a few friends!
Amazing! Very Scenic! Waitress provided incredible service and food was Great!
Beautiful setting on ocean. Delicious food and welcoming staff.
Great food offerings. The freshest and tastiest of seafood available.
The best bouillabaisse anywhere! The mahi mahi was tender, perfectly cooked and very tasty. Great advice for wine pairing.
We have eaten at Sea Watch for 40 years. Always good, but this was the best meal we ever had there. Our hats off to the chef. We live in Ft Lauderdale and love the ocean view at Sea Watch. Plan on going back soon!
We're locals and this is our favorite lunch spot on the beach. Very relaxed atmosphere and consistently fresh and well-cooked seafood. We've been here many times and we expect to visit many more times.
Hostess did not inform server of our arrival and we waited ten minutes after being seated before we met our server. She did a very good job,,food was great, but this startup glitch made a bad impression.
Food was great. View was fabulous. Great restaurant
Nice location, unfortunately that was about it. Had 8:30 reservation, arrived at 8:15. Another couple without reservation arrived just ahead of us. They told us that it would be a few minutes for our table. We took a beeper and went up to the bar. At 8:45 I went down to ask about the table, they looked at me shocked and said OMG we messed up and gave your “slip” to the other couple and forgot about us! Ok no big deal it happens. They sat us in the corner of a pretty empty place by this time. Finally after sitting for 15 minutes and NO ONE came over I had to get up and ask if we had a waiter? A waiter then came right over, apologized and did give us a round of wine on the house. Food came out quickly and was Luke warm and one dish was rather small portion for the $$$. Seemed like it was the end of the night and they wanted out. Great atmosphere go before sunset would probably be best.
Food and service were excellent, will definitely return
Food delicious ! Price very reasonable! View amazing. Wait staff great.
The service was
As always excellent!!! Service, food and overall ambience make the Sea Watch one of our favorite restaurants in the area.
As a returning customer I had mixed feelings this time around. Since we arrived early, we decided to go to bar and have some drinks before dinner. There was no available bar stools when we got to the bar, so we decided to order drinks while standing and wait until stools became available. They had 2 bartenders (a woman and a man) at the bar. We had to ask for drinks twice- first to the male bartender and then to the female. When stools became available, the female bartender told us that we couldn't seat there because the stools were already reserved for someone else. Since other stools became available immediately we decided to not question her comments about reserving a bar space, and sat on other stools. While waiting at the bar to be called for our dinner table (45 mins) we never saw anyone seat at "the reserved" seats, another group of people came after us, sat on some empty stools next to us, and since they needed an extra stool, they grabbed one of "the reserved" stools. The female bartender didn't tell them anything about the reserved seats, which made us very upset. When our dinner table bacame available, we paid our bar tab and told the female bartender about her very bad customer service. She did not give any type of apology for the incident, she told us that the people had move to another bar area; we told her she shouldn't lie because no one ever sat on "the reserved" stools
The view is spectacular. The server was wonderful, very attentive without being intrusive.
She had good suggestions. ( sorry I forgot her name).
This is the 2nd time we ate there this month the
food is delicious. Very good variety.
Magnificent views great dining experience
I've encouraged several of my friends, one has made reservations for her anniversary. I've been to Sea Watch several times its always a pleasure to dine with such a fabulous view. Thank you....
Loved this restaurant...great food , service and marvelous view!
We love the restaurant and have been there a few times. The food is great. The only negative was that the room we were in was noisy.
This was our second time in a week we ate at Sea Watch and we love the excellent seafood and beachfront dining. Service is great and the prices are reasonable.
Nice spot always enjoy it
Everything was wonderful. Thank you for making the evening so enjoyable.
Excellence all around!
Atmosphere, food, views, and waitress were great.
I’m a regular Sunday brunch patron and we always sit upstairs and outside. A wedding was held 2/9 during brunch unfortunately (perceived) pulling restaurant staff to accommodate the wedding. Service was really off today. I hope for special occasions, restaurant management would schedule extra staff. Plus the bar was out of the beer I prefer, how does that happen at an upscale restaurant?
Sliced sirloin steak was a small size. Maybe 6 oz and over priced. Disappointed.
Had a great time food delicious service excellent love the ambience
my favorite restaurant in the fort lauderdale area. never dissapointed
Everything was good
