Made reservation, Open Table confirmed, I showed up and restaurant was closed.
Walked by the next day to see them still unopened with a sign on the window reading closed for 2 days and their holiday operating hours....if the restaurant is going to use a service like OpenTable for their customers the least they could do is keep its operating hours updated.

Great food. Didn’t take account of our booking request and when we requested a table move as they put us in the door draft we were pretty much ignored despite there being 3 other tables available the entire time we were in the restaurant.

Service not great but food was very nice.

The food was really good. Portions was a little less than what we wanted. However, the taste was spot on. Atmosphere was great. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

The food is good but any special request is far from welcomed (and in fact doesn't seem to be heard at all).
The tables outside are cute so it can be a nice casual spot with friends.

Second time there. Food is really good. Batterers awesome. Waitress not so much. Unfriendly, Curt, and sort of rushing us. Restaurant was empty besides us so not sure what her hurry was. We had fun anyway, and the food was very good.

My Friends and I get together every year to celebrate our birthdays and I chose Seabird as the place this year. Our waitress was Nadja and she was fantastic. She was patient with us in ordering our food, she made great suggestions and she was very friendly. The music that the bartender was playing was off the chain it made you want to dance. I ordered the Fried Calamari and the salmon poke for the table. Delicious! Our main courses consisted of Fish taco, healthy caesar salad, fish burger and I got the branzino with shishito pepper. OUTSTANDING!!!!!!
This place is a great find and you will not be disappointed. They even surprised us with dessert and champagne for the three of us on the house. I will definitely come back!!!

Food was weak. Grilled Calamari was undercooked. Salmon tacos were in a deep fried shell, which wasn't specified on the menu or by the staff, and not what we wanted.

Our issue with our meal was not the taste of the food, it was how long it took to get to us. Our lunch took at least an hour to arrive at our table. After about 30 minutes we finally inquired as to where our food was and it was only then that our waitress told us that there was just one chef working today and it still took another 30 minutes. The food itself was delicious and our waitress offered us free drinks and a free dessert but truthfully we were so hungry that all we wanted was food. Truthfully we would have preferred an appetizer. The music was also very loud and we asked for it to be turned down a bit. The bartender would only turn it down a little bit even though we were directly below the speaker and it was the middle of the day on a Monday. Despite a yummy experience, I would be hesitant to return.

The food was very good. It was what I expected. But the service was not as good as the food. Our server was very kind and polite but seemed overwhelmed and didn't check up on us. But mostly I asked for the fried calamari appetizer to come BEFORE our meals. As in, as an appetizer. Instead by the time the calamari showed up we were almost done with our entrees. It was a pretty disappointing service. But the food was good. So I still would recommend Seabird. Everyone enjoyed their food despite the service.

Just around the corner from the hustle of Christopher St I found a gorgeous seaside restaurant with super friendly down to earth staff and fresh seafood dishes.

The interior is expertly crafted. The open kitchen's artisanal tile against the reclaimed wood is perfect and you can practically feel the oceanside breeze against your face.

Jonny was such a dear with our order, great recommendations and clearly knowledgeable about the dishes. Everything was so crisp and fresh! Have to try the muscle pots or the lobster roll for a quick grab. Coming back for a day at the raw bar!

To be honest, the food left me with a stomach ache. I ate calamari and the fish sandwich, both of which tasted like they were previously frozen and not fresh at all. Disappointed!

My only complaint was that there was no full bar. We wanted cocktails before dinner. We left the restaurant to go next door for a drink. Seabird rescheduled our reservation and we came back and had a lovely dinner.

Disappointed that the steak was unavailable.
However, their salmon poke and octopus were delicious. And the oysters were great too, very fresh!
And service was on point too, though we were the only ones on a Sunday night.
Additionally, the complimentary prosecco was a nice touch.
Would definitely come back again to try their steak.

This was a great little discovery when exploring the city not long ago, and we've been back several times since. Everything we've ever tried has been delicious, and we're certain (although we've never asked) that it's a family-owned place, because they take a real interest in your evening, and we've had delightful conversations with several of the staff. who have all been there since we started eating at Seabird.

Hints: 1) Appetizers are cheaper if you sit at the bar, 2) the fries are spectacular, and 3) both their red and white sangrias are delicious and refreshing for summer.

I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone. Not sure why it's a popular brunch spot. We ordered Salmon Poke - the salmon was frozen and there was hair on the plate :) Avocado seafood toast is also horribly prepared... the server also acted quite weird. He kept asking my friend if she wants more coffee almost every other minute.

Went to Seabird with a small group of girl friends for dinner. We shared a few plates; oysters, lobster mac & cheese (delish!), clam bake, fries. Yummy food and reasonably priced for 1) seafood and 2) being in the west village. Fun cocktail menu, we had some yummy lemonade champagne drinks and a few glasses of wine. The staff was very nice but a little slow to refill drinks and such. Definitely a good place though! & make sure you get the lobster mac & cheese.
