Food and service was awful. I’m not the type to send food back nor to complain to the Manager, but my wife and I did. The manager was nice, but the food and the service was less than a chain restaurant. I’m a lifetime platinum member of Marriott and this was one of the worst hotel restaurant experiences I’ve ever had at any price point.

Amazing food (we had the Kobe Beef & Duck) and truly worth the trip! Bar Service was a bit slow but we didn’t mind as we were enjoying every bite of our dinner. Highly recommend!

I bought the travelzoo voucher. You’d think they’d want to put their best food/wine on that voucher knowing that they are a new restaurant and the voucher was the only way to entice locals to eat there and spread the word. Sorbet was beyond awful. Salmon should have had more sides with it. Lobster bisque was a morseful, teaspoon size. My friend had to scrape the bowl when first served the bisque.

Spending close to $250 for 2 on a horrid meal is wrong. My daughter had the grilled shrimp and they were way over cooked and tough. I had the duck which I had to send back as it was cold in the middle. They brought it back with no change to it. The skin was gross and jelly like, not thin and crispy like the server described. They removed it from the bill, offering no apologies. Our server was gone most of the time and the place was not busy. Tables around us had their own server son no idea where ours was hiding. Left really disappointed!

I was very excited to check out this place. Came with high expectations. Did enjoy outdoor seating but it’s very close to the pool and kids were playing loudly near by. Beautiful presentation of lobster bisque but the portion size for $20 is a joke. Sea bass was served undercooked and I had to wait another 30 minutes for it to be replaced. I was expecting at least a glass of wine as an apology. When I received a check I had to wait another 20 minutes to be charged. From this high end restaurant was expecting a little better service then I received. On the other hand all of the food ordered was tasty.

Excellent ambiance and incredible food. You pay for a quality experience, but it does not disappoint. The steaks are the highlight, but the sides are a close second. The Mac and Cheese with homemade noodles was delicious. The Brussel sprouts were the best I have ever had. Be forewarned, the sides are huge! Two sides are easily shared by 4 people.

I will definitely be back

Everything was amazing, the food, drinks, service, ambiance. We had to wait a little bit for some of our dishes but it is totally understandable due to the circumstances that we are in, the staff recognized the waiting time and apologized multiple times, but you really don’t notice when you are in great company and having some of their great drinks, I will totally go again!!

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!
