This continues to be a favorite but this time we dined later than usual (8:30pm) and it was excessively noisy since the restaurant was quite busy. I pointed out that I had requested a table in a quiet area on my Open Table reservation but was told there was none available. This was disappointing since the 6 of us wanted to have conversation without screaming at each other in order to be heard. A few minutes later the hostess returned and changed our table to a much quieter area. We were quite pleased and had an enjoyable evening.
Thank you SeaWatch.

The Mahi was a little overdone and the new sauce on the side was a Spanish style hot relish that was overly mushy and peppery and not appropriate for a blackened grilled recipe. Too many cooks are forcing Spanish style preparations on classic non-hispanic recipes and spoiling the entire dish. Wrong combination. Owners need to get back to better supervision of the chef/ cook staff.
Seafood medley was exceedingly skimpy, but tasty.
Rigatoni Sorrentina was too watery; should have drained off excess fluid prior to serving. The sauce is an Al fresco type tomato base, so it needs to sit a few minutes to drain, get siphoned off and then served. Also, sauce needed more fresh basil, and fennel, either dried powered fennel, or fresh cut stalk cooked with tomatoes in sauce.
Seawatch is good quality, but the chef staff is getting too independent with it's recipes, and too many ethnic touches that are ruining selections.

Food was great but was a little disappointed where we were seated as there was no view of the ocean and felt isolated from the rest of the restaurant.

We had a table for 4 and spent $$$==did not order from the early bird menu. The service was wonderful. Since it was a business dinner we didn't want to complain about two of the meals. We ordered drinks before dinner, salads, soups, entrees , desserts and special coffees.

We had an awesome waiter, Matthew, who immediately established an excellent rapport with us. He introduced us to his helper, Louie, who also was very nice. We had the sunset 3 course dinner with additional calamari appetizer. We took Matthew's recommendation for our red bottle of Cabernet wine which was superb. In addition, a very nice perk on Wednesday's ..... Bottles of wine are half price. Our waiter checked during each course that all was fine. The New England clam chowder was delicious, very thick and the broiled sea medley was cooked to perfection. We chose the key lime pie for dessert which Matthew presented with a glowing candle. This restaurant thrives on pleasing their customers and you enjoy in a very relaxing atmosphere.........no rushing. Thank you for the memorial birthday dinner experience.

It was fine. Not our first visit.

Welcome by older gentleman felt cold - he seemed slightly arrogant & not particularly warm.

Restaurant not busy (numerous empty tables) but as a host he seemed more concerned as to if or not we had a reservation (we did) than truly inviting us in.

It’s a lovely place with an amazing view of the ocean. There is a bar upstairs and the patio was covered with large open windows. The inside was cozy and so romantic. The only issue we had was with the older gentleman who was seating people. He took a long time to figure out where to put people even though the place was very empty. It was very odd. More people were waiting to be seated then there were already seated!
I would go again just for the view and food was very good. It is pricey so keep that in mind. You are paying for that view because portions are not large.

We are new to Lauderdale by the Sea - the daily 5-6 pm Special Seating turned out to be a gem.

On Open Table we requested a table with a view, if possible. They gave us a lovely ocean view.

We enjoyed wonderful prime rib and stuffed sole dinners. Being from Boston, the New England Clam Chowder passed our approvals. Key Lime pie for dessert was excellent.

Our waiter was excellent but a nearby table had 14 adults which really required most of his attention - he always checked with us, but really on the fly.

We would definitely return and tell friends & neighbors about our great dinner.

Found the Seafood Special - lobster tail, scallops and shrimp over cooked and
deeply blackened from the grill. A lighter touch would have been appreciated.
Your receptionist [she was the boss] was outstanding. My partner was Director
of Catering for Omni Hotels in another lifetime, and she was top of the heap.

Enjoyed the setting and the evening!

The ocean view and layout is fabulous! But my Seafood meal came with ONE very tiny potato, a few carrots/ green beans. When I ask the waitress about the ONE tiny potato, she rolled her eyes and walked away. For the pricy price of seafood you would expect more then a tiny potato!

Sea Watch has been our go-to restaurant for birthdays, anniversaries, and just good food for more than 25 years. It's where we send out of town friends so they can enjoy a true beachside dining experience.
