We had dinner here the other night with our three small kids (7,4, 5 months) We needed a break from Disney park food... The staff was very accommodating to our family. Our server Damian was very attentive without hovering. The food was outstanding one of the best steaks we have had in a long time. Our kids got a steak and salmon and there was nothing left on their plates when we left. Over all we look forward to eating here again!

Food was fabulous! Service was great. We sat outside on a Saturday evening for our date night! The only issue was my $22 martini...charged $3.00 for the 2 stuffed olives! I realize it’s a hotel restaurant/bar but come on.. Otherwise as locals we will be back. Just not to drink at the bar!

This is my 4th visit to sear and sea. Consistent execution on all the menu items we had. Last visit we had another couple join us. Apps, octopus and lobster bisque. Fantastic
16 oz ribeyes shared with our wives. We like mid rare plus and they like rare plus. Both steaks were perfect. Well seasoned, nice char and perfect temp. Sides are shareable. Brussel sprouts are awesome. Yea I said that. Dont care if u hate them, get it.
Will go again without question.

I went into this experience knowing it would be costly... I wasn’t worried about that... I just wanted the experience to match.. unfortunately the service and ambience doesn’t match the food and price... my compliments to the chef:kitchen... 5 star meal and unbelievable wine selection... once our order was correct it was spectacular It was just getting there that was the challenge... our server simply was not in point... don’t want to slander anyone and I definitely would give it another try... but to be honest for the 450$ dinner for 2 their were better overall experiences to be had in area..

Carlos in the Sear & Sea bar invited us to attend for drinks and dinner He was very attentive and excited to show us the beautiful new JW Marriott hotel. We enjoyed drinks and apps with friends and followed up with dinner in the Sear & Sea Restaurant. Damian served us and Bianca made our fantastic great drinks. It was a great way to spend my birthday. Thank you to all! As Bonvoy members we will be back soon!

When you walk into the new JW Marriot in Bonnet Creek, you will be astonished with the beauty of the decor and how elegant it presents. Before even entering the restaurant, come a bit early and enjoy the bar lounge they have. Is a nice way to relax, chat with some friends and enjoy a couple of cocktails to start of the night right. Once you walk into the restaurant you are easily greeted by the hostess and taken to your table. The restaurant has a great vibe and it feels very upscale. EVERY COURSE we ate was absolutely delicious. The bread with the butter was so tasty we had to keep ordering for more. The steaks were cooked to perfection and had a lot of amazing flavors. I had scallops for a appetizer that were to die for and you could not stop me from not taking another bite. The drinks are very unique in their presentation and the flavor was on point. Our waiter was very attentive, he was always filling our glasses with water and asking us about wanting any other cocktail drinks and clearing our plates delicately. The chef came out several times to present himself, explain the food and just add to the OUTSTANDING EXPERIENCE! I highly recommend you try this new restaurant. I absolutely believe is one of the BEST new restaurants to offer TOP service and food in the Orlando area. I highly recommend to anyone, from tourist to visitors alike. Plus both the hotel and restaurant maintain a great deal of social distancing, mask wearing, hand sanitizers etc. to keep peoples health safety of the virus as top priority. Don't miss out!

Excellent place to have dinner when in Orlando. Hotel and restaurant are beautiful. food is great and ambiance at the terrace amazing. Yet service needs improvement. They are very nice and friendly, but they rarely show up at the terrace.

This place has a lot of potential, just may have had an off night. Our server was great, super friendly and took items off our check and gave us free champagne without us even really complaining. The place was empty, maybe 4-5 tables eating. The lobster bisque took 30 minutes to come out. Steaks were almost an hour after that and it came out barely cooked. Great place but food wasn’t that good that evening. Would possibly try again

The food here was incredible. My husband said it was one of the best meals he’s ever had (and we love food and eating at good restaurants). Service was outstanding- we had our four kids and we were not made to feel bad about them at all 😂 The tuna crudo and octopus appetizers were so delicious as were the branzino and halibut. My husband, 11 year old daughter and my stepfather shared the tomahawk steak. I don’t eat red meat but it looked sooooo good. I deformity want to come back to this restaurant!

We enjoyed a spectacular thanksgiving dinner at Sear and Sea. The staff provided extremely gracious and attentive service: from the moment the hostess greeted us at the entrance to our hospitable server at the table. We were delighted to meet Chef Alex table side - providing us insights into his delicious and fresh creations. His amazing dishes speak to his creativity and skill. He is truly on top of his craft. A big thank you to the management- Iliana and Daniel - for making sure we had a truly memorable Thanksgiving. With such a fantastic dining experience, we are already planning our next dinner at Sear and Sea and cannot wait to return!

While my wife and I frequent Sea + Sea (we love this place, fantastic food, always an excellent experience), we had a family dinner as part of a staycation this time celebrating my 8 year old boy’s birthday. Heliana Bartlett and her team members provided yet another wonderful evening and made it extra special for my son (great seating / location all the way to a really cool and fun dessert). We highly recommend Sea + Sear! :)

Once again, another great experience at Sear + Sea. The food is excellent with plenty of gluten-free options, as well. The service is exceptional, staff is fully engaged and work hard to make sure you needs are met and experience is delightful. Daniel Schmidt and team are doing a nice job and Heliana Bartlett is simply amazing.
