    This place would be awesome if the service was better. I’ve been there twice, different servers, both need more training or initiative... or something..got the wrong stuff, was charged for extra things we didn’t ask for, took three hours total because everything took so long. I would go back though, to give it a third chance. The ambiance was nice when it is not packed.

    Overall, this establishment was underwhelming. It provides a beautiful view but the staff needs to be trained, the food was poorly prepared and overpriced, my husband’s lobster roll was old and dried out, and the establishment needs a deep clean (especially the bathrooms).

    The view was gorgeous! I'm giving Sea Wolf an average review because it was a very busy father's day at the restaurant. And I'll give it another go before I decide if I would go back after that. The Manager was great and you could tell it was an intense day. The menu was solid, the food was tepid. If I was the owner of the restaurant I would totally rework how to bring the outside in.

    Place needs to get its act together. Good people working there, but they are all overwhelmed. Reservation system is simply wishful thinking, we waited an hour for our reservation. Food was fine, view was amazing. They just need to get better organized.

    Great location and ambiance and well designed indoor/outdoor seating! And really excellent, friendly service. Is it the best food in New York? Definitely not, but the food is ok (and the happy hour oysters were good!) and I would return for the location and generally pleasant experience. Probably not the place for a serious foodie but I would still recommend it, especially as a fun place to take visitors to NYC for the beautiful view. Also appreciated the kids menu and crayons.

    Waterfront seating with great food! We did the oysters for happy hour and had lobster Monday madness that included unlimited frozen painkillers and beer. Lobster Mac was great and they did not skimp on the lobster. The lobster roll and fries was so good too! Those were some perfectly cooked fries, man. I will definitely be going back!

    My guy surprised me with a nice lunch date and it was amazing. Nice view and great food and drinks. The seats tho? Not so much. They have these extremely uncomfortable blue chairs that I actually had to switch out for another because they were that bad. Everything besides those chairs were amazing.

    They have the smallest portions. The lobster roll was extremely small & served on a hotdog bun for $30. We asked to switch it and we’re told they might not be able to because it would ‘go to waste’. The lobster was just ok. Nice views of the skyline though. Not feeling the good at this location.

    SeaWolf has a beautiful setting along the East River. Brunch was delicious! The clam chowder is loaded with clams! It is also quite filling. After a bowl of that, barely any room to try anything else!

    We had a very poor experience. The staff did their best but it was clear the manager had understaffed the restaurant. Despite our reservation, we had to wait awhile to get seated and ultimately gave up and took a seat at the bar. We waited an hour and a half for oysters that we never got before we gave up and left. The bartenders did their best to check on our orders and were very kind. Will not be returning.

    Very friendly and enthusiastic staff, noisy casual venue great for a laid back meal with friends, not a great date venue, hard to hear. Would have appreciated them cracking the claws prior to serving as they were very large and very tough and spiny shells. Food was wonderful, their first foray into grits overdid the butter but was still tasty. View from the windows is beautiful.

    Unfortunately, my party & I didn’t have a pleasurable experience at Sea Wolf last night. It’s not my norm to write critical reviews, but last night’s experience warrants it. I hope management takes heed and make the necessary improvements. First, we arrived for our reservation and had to wait at least an half an hour for a table to become available. Once we were seated, we tried to order but the restaurant ran out of literally everything that we wanted. They didn’t have mussels, lobster, lobster mac and oysters. After 4 attempts of trying to place an order, the waitress came back to say the grill was turned off. How could a restaurant turn off a grill when guests are still waiting to order and eat. We complained to the manager and he was able to come up w/ fried shrimp & french fries as an entree. During this time, we overheard the employees getting into several arguments about wanting to end their night and finish working. Totally unprofessional. We attempted to order more cocktails, but the bartender didn’t want to make it. Our waitress went behind the bar, pulled out a binder and followed the instructions to make the cocktails we wanted. We watched an employee storm out the restaurant. It was a pretty terrible experience all around. I will say our waitress tried her best. It wasn’t her fault.
