Menu is smaller than the website show. Waiter was not attentive and drinks were poor. Overall, I would not come back.

We celebrated Mother’s Day with brunch at Sea Wolf and it was a wonderful experience! There are many things about this restaurant that I love: the location, gorgeous skyline views, friendly staff, and food. But the ultimate treat is the “painkiller” cocktail that they have perfected. It’s summer in a glass and one of my favorite cocktails in the city. We will definitely be coming back.

Slowest service, cold food, no attention from the servers. The original sea wolf in bushwick is the only one worth it!

We love Seawolf. We live nearby and want it to thrive! We were so excited when they reopened! However, the food was terrible. We got oysters, three orders of fish tacos and the fish sandwich. The fish in the tacos was lacking in flavor/seasoning. Didn't have any accompaniments, like a slaw or sauce inside. The tortillas weren't even warmed up. And they weren't even good tortillas. (The Hermosa tortillas that sell at the grocery store are way better!) The fish sandwich was also subpar and the fries were fine. These are all things we've had in the past and loved. The oysters were good. The drinks, service and ambience was great. But we were very surprised at how bad the food was. :(

This location did not have the full menu. The food here was just ok. Not as good as the Bushwick location iny opinion.

The restaurant is completely digital, from the menus to paying for your meal as you order from the app the restaurant uses, very forward thinking.

Meal was great and the ambiance is unmatched with waterfront views of NYC. I will definitely recommend to friends, family and clients.

Disappointed.
Had to order and pay through the app at the table when you sit down, which meant no real waiter service (but still had to tip on the app). Essentially the “waiter” is tipped before the start of the meal so it kind of felt like they didn’t care because of it.

It felt very “fast food” ish. Your table had a number and then just brought you the food. No one comes to check on you if you need anything, you have to flag them down.

The half seafood tower was a huge let down. Sloppily assembled and didn’t give proper utensils (no small forks, no lobster shell cracker).
Clam chowder was watery and bland.
Kale ceasar salad was good. The cod “fish and chips” was good.

We spent $300 and walked out feeling let down.

Perhaps it is because they just reopened (April 2021) but we were so disappointed after looking forward to going here for so long.

We are so sorry to hear you were disappointed with your visit. That was our first brunch opening with in room dining this year so we are sorry our service was not yet up to par, we are definitely working on it. We do aim to check in frequently with all guests, whether they use the QR or order through server which is always an option. We hope you can come back soon and give us another chance. Next time please let your server know you would like to order through them not through the QR.

There wasn’t really any service. Everything is done on your phone, including tip, once you order. There are food runners not servers. Seemed a little impersonal.

Cute date night restaurant. Order and pay online. Only down side is if you want to order more items you have to pay again and tip. I would have preferred to just keep the check open from the beginning.

- Service and COVID Regulations -
My girlfriends and I have a reunion get together here.
The COVID social distancing was great... plastic dividers between each other and self checkout through your phone. The service was face and efficient.

- Food -
The food was great... we throughly enjoyed it.
I strongly recommend the Bronzino, calamari, brussel sprouts and broccoli rabe.

- Ambiance -
The waterfront view was breathtaking and beautiful. A great place for photos.

The location is beautiful, the lighting was romantic and the view of Manhattan and the waterside is beautiful,(perfect for a date night). The menu has a good variety where anyone can find something to eat. I recommend the buffalo wings and oysters the drinks were good as well. I will definitely return.

Best thing here is the view. Food is meh. No fresh grilled fish entree at a seafood restaurant? Servers very nice but self-ordering is clumsy and tip is perfunctory before the meal. I know it's Covid exceptionalism, but both times I've visited, they've had "computer system problems."

My brunch at sea wolf was excellent. It was very easy to order using the QR code on the table. The restaurant was clean and spaced out well with Covid procedures. I have the devils breakfast and the shrimp basket split with a friend. The food was delicious and so was the painkiller!

Exceptional service and food! I love the self ordering through the QR code that they provide at your table and the way we pay when we make the order, especially during this time. Less contact! I was there to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday and our server Isabella was so kind and friendly to us. The whole experience was fantastic and I will definitely be back.

This was our first night out at a restaurant since the quarantine in March. We were celebrating my husband's birthday and our anniversary. There were items on the menu that suited all of our tastes. My daughter is a vegetarian and there were several other items that she could eat beside a veggie burger. Our server was attentive and gave great suggestions. We had a great time and will definitely go back again.

It was a nice little spot and then staff is very nice, but their portion size is for someone that is on a diet lol. No way 2 people could share 5 asparagus sticks. I like the thought of what they are doing, but we were still hungry.

Had dinner with my best friend for her birthday.. we opt to dine indoors since the indoor dining restrictions were lifted.. temperatures were checked at door, there were plexiglass to separate tables.. everyone wore masks and sanitizer on table.. we felt pretty safe dining in.. our server Phillip was very attentive without being too on top of us.. overall it was great.. pray everyone stay healthy and well so they can stay open.. will definitely fine again soon ..
