    A lovely place to celebrate my birthday with my family. Our server was excellent and very welcoming. This is my favorite restaurant to go to for special occasions especially at Christmastime.! I haven’t been there in a few years and it was very special. Lovely Christmas decorations, too.

    Love Sea Watch every time and the nature view is wonderful. Prices very reasonable and food very good. BUT why did they do away with hot fudge sundae?? Old people, who are much of their clientele, love ice cream! How hard is it to keep a tub of ice cream, a jar of hot fudge, and some whipped cream on hand? I wish they’d bring back the sundae!

    Main courses were solid but with poor presentation. The baked potatoes were not cooked. We did order a side salad and a “loaded” potato - both included only enough extras to be more than simply lettuce or potato. Eg. the potato had a thin ribbon of dried sour cream along a slight cut in its surface. Overall poor value for money - there are other places better to dine.

    The service and food were exceptional. Our waiter seemed to know exactly when we finished each dish and swooped in to retrieve the plate. He was a good conversationalist as well. The shrimp were delicious. Enjoyed the wedge salad. The grouper was moist and tasty. A delightful experience. We will return the next time we are in Fort Lauderdale.

    We were disappointed that they remodeled and now just feels like every other table beside table, pack them in style restaurant. The ambience was amazing before this was done. Ordered filet and lobster for $60 and the filet was a half inch (not bacon wrapped) piece of most likely sirloin. Lobster tough and very small. The service was top notch however.

    Everything was wonderful except for my salmon platter that I ordered. The salmon filet was the tinest sliver of a piece of fish that I've ever been served at any restaurant. When I was here last year they served a regular size salmon filet which was very good. They need to correct this!

    Sea Watch RestaurantResponded on November 25, 2022Thank you, Bill, for taking the time to write us a review. We apologize your entree was not up to your expectations- as well as ours. We will pass this feedback to our executive chef to avoid this happening in the future. We hope you reconsider joining us!

    I do not think you will find a restaurant with better service! The staff was friendly and attentive. The decor is a mix of old and new. The setting, which is right on the beach, can't be beat (although we went after dark so we could not actually see the beach). The Sea Watch was a quiet reprieve compared to other restaurants we had dined in over our four night stay in Ft. Lauderdale. I gave four stars in "overall" and "food" because my salmon was overcooked for my taste. I like when I am asked how I want my salmon cooked. I should have made a request but did not think of it at the time. Pricing was in line with every other restaurant we visited. Next time we will go for lunch so we can take in a view of the ocean.
