    Meals were very good and the short rib appetizer was exceptional. Worth a trip for sure - we came from CLT.

    Everything about this place is exceptional. Although we were there on a Saturday night, we did not feel rushed at all. In fact they encourage you to take your time and enjoy each course fully. Every item on the plate is so well thought out and has a role in the overall experience of the dish. This place has spoiled us for our other go-to restaurants in the area. Really appreciated the guidance of our server, Colby, in making our choices.

    Oh my, where to begin. If I could give 10 stars I would. Amazing service, presentation and food. It was a pure gastronomic experience of epic proportions. We got the seafood tower which was a work of art and delicious. Other main courses were exceptional as well. It has been such long time since we have truly experienced the quality of this caliber. And, the desserts…just go!!!!

    the room was pleasant. for us, more importantly, the space between tables allowed for quiet conversation and elbow space. We also liked that the music was kept low enough to be background noise. Our waiter, Ryan, was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and fun. The food was as described by Ryan and the menu. It was delivered on a nice, leisurely time line. The quality of the food was good w/delightful flavoring reflective of the menu notes. Congrats on James Beard nomination. Well deserved.

    The food was exemplary. Our party of six all commented on the deliciousness of their meals. The wait staff was attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. We were seated directly next to the kitchen serving doors, so there was lots of wait staff traffic and noise. It did take an inordinate amount of time for the meals to be served, and a few comments about the food not being as warm as it should have been were offered. Not sure if this was a prep issue or a service issue.

    Every moment of the dining experience was wonderful. Our server was welcoming and well informed. The cocktails and appetizers set the expectations properly for the amazing meal to come. Fresh oysters and ribs are a must have.

    We loved our experience sitting at the Chef's Table. Chef Dean took time with us and made us feel appreciated. Our waiter Chris did an excellent job of pairing wines with our tasting menu. He was attentive and cordial without overdoing it. We will defiantly return to Seabird for future fine dining.
